Rams WR Keenan Burton was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury. The Rams only suited up four receivers today so keep your eye on whose touches increase, be it Donnie Avery, rookie Brandon Gibson and/or Danny Amendola.
I missed the highlight, but apparently QB Mark Sanchez threw a pick on the first offensive play for the Jets. He has really been struggling lately.
I keep waiting for RB Bernard Scott to get more offensive touches for the Bengals, but I understand why he is not—Cedric Benson is having a phenomenal year so far. I am happy to see that Scott did return a kickoff for six though. His time will come, he is an exciting, elusive open field runner.
A crazy thing is happening today, Jake Delhomme is throwing touchdown passes. To Steve Smith, who else. Unfortunately, WE Steve Smith injured his back on the second. It doesn’t look to be incredibly serious since he is walking, albeit to the locker room. T Jordan Gross was also hurt which could impact the Carolina rushing attack.
Also, Falcons RB Michael Turner suffered what they are calling a high ankle sprain, and is questionable to return. My bet is that he is done for the day, but watch this one closely to see if there are fantasy implications for next week. Jason Snelling looks to get a lot of second half action.
Man the Bengals might be the all time leader for botched kicks in a single season. Yep, they missed another extra point attempt.
Redskins’ punting bad arse Hunter Smith does it again. Dude is an athlete. Earlier this year he ran one in for a score on a fake, today he threw a 35-yard TD pass on a fake. Wow. Maybe we should start having a fantasy slot for punter.
