NFL Notes: Pats WR Danny Amendola will play Sunday. Pats DB Aqib Talib will not. News early in the week was that DeMarco Murray would play this weekend. Now he is doubtful. - 10/27

Friday NFL Notes: Cardinals RB Andre Ellington will see more carries Sunday with Rashard Mendenhall unlikely to play. Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman has played himself out of the RB rotation by fumbling multiple times. He won’t be active this Sunday. Patriots WR Danny Amendola is expected to play Sunday. Packers WR Jarrett Boykin will get another start in place of James Jones. Falcons RB Jason Snelling is OUT Sunday as is WR Roddy White. - 10/25

Thursday NFL Notes: Bills RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday’s tilt vs. the Saints. Falcons WR Roddy White missed practice Thursday making his status for Sunday not good.

Niners WR Michael Crabtree is expected back in a month. Packers TE JerMichael Finley has stated that he will return to the NFL to continue his career.

Week 8 Thursday Night Football Preview and Prediction:
Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pick (8:30PM EST) - 10/24

Wednesday NFL Notes: The Cleveland Browns have benched QB Brandon Weeden in favor of Jason Campbell. Believe it or not, there is a rumor that 43 year old Jeff Garcia has reached out to Cleveland to offer his services. WTF? Falcons RB Steven Jackson might return this week. Rumor out of the Cowboys camp is that they may shut down WR Miles Austin for a while. Don’t expect them to rush him back as Terrance Williams is playing lights out in his place. The NFL has reduced Brandon Meriweather’s suspension from 2 games to 1. Saints TE Jimmy Graham did not practice Wed. If he can’t go this week, Ben Watson would take his place in the starting lineup. Eagles QB Michael Vick took all the first team reps Wednesday and is a go to start this week vs. the Giants. Packers WR James Jones did not practice Wed and is doubtful vs. the Vikings. Vikings QB Josh Freeman has a concussion. We’re not sure if it’s in his head or right arm though. Bills RB C.J. Spiller didn’t practice Wednesday. There are rumors that he may sit this weekend which would give Fred Jackson a big load. The Baltimore Ravens worked out free agent RB Beanie Wells. Jags RB Chad Henne will start despite Blaine Gabbert being healthy. Seahawks WR Percy Harvin will be back soon. - 10/23

Tuesday NFL Notes: The St. Louis Rams have signed QB’s Austin Davis and Brady Quinn. Despite having a horrid MNF performance, the Vikings have announced that Josh Freeman will start in Week 8. The Detroit Lions have released TE Tony Scheffler. Eagles QB Michael Vick is taking 1st team reps in practice. The Browns are unsure whether they’ll start Brandon Weeden or Jason Campbell on Sunday. Andrew Quarless will start at TE in place of Jermichael Finley. Hes not much of a pass catcher though. The Steelers have released RB Isaac Redman. - 10/22

Week 8 NFL Byes: Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Indianapolis, San Diego, Tennessee. - 10/22

Monday NFL Notes: Bears QB Jay Cutler injured his groin Sunday and will miss a month of action. Josh McCown will take over the reigns. Giants RB Brandon Jacobs is doubtful for MNF. Peyton Hillis will likely get the brunt of the carries. Look for the Giants to take to the air more than usual tonight. Eagles QB Nick Foles suffered a concussion Sunday. Michael Vick’s health is still in question and Matt Barkley looked as horrible as any QB we’ve ever seen, so the Eagles may be in trouble in Week 8. Rams QB Sam Bradford tore his ACL and is done for the season. Kellen Clemens will take over at QB and be thrown to the wolves as the Rams play Seattle in Week 8. Bears LB Lance Briggs will miss 4-6 weeks with a shoulder injury. Skins DB Brandon Meriweather is expected to face a suspension for having two personal fouls vs. the Bears Sunday.

Saturday NFL Notes: Vikings T Matt Kalil hasn’t practiced all week due to low back stiffness but is expected to play. Giants RB Brandon Jacobs did not practice Saturday and is questionable for MNF. Michael Cox and Peyton Hillis are his backups. Patriots CB Aqib Talib will miss this week’s game vs. the Jets with a bad hip. In a surprising move, the Titans are talking about starting Jake Locker on Sunday. This despite reports that he was walking with a limp 2 days ago. Pats TE Rob Gronkowski is still listed as questionable for week 7, however, he has been medically cleared to play. - 10/19

Seattle Seahawks vs. Arizona Cardinals Pick (8:30PM EST) - 10/17

Thursday NFL Notes: The Houston Texans have announced that Case Keenum will start at QB Sunday. Falcons WR Roddy White sat out again Thursday and is doubtful to play Sunday vs. TB. Look for Harry Douglas and Tony Gonzalez to get a ton of targets. Packers WR James Jones sat out Thursday. Jarrett Boykin will step in as a WR2 if he’s unable to go. RGIII has made comment that he needs to run more. Not much brewing today. We’ll add more info as it breaks. - 10/17

Wednesday NFL Notes: The Bills have announced that QB E.J. Manuel will miss another 4-6 weeks. Larry Fitzgerald and Marshawn Lynch are expected to play Thursday. It’s been confirmed that Pats WR Danny Amendola suffered a concussion Sunday. It’s not likely that he’ll suit up for Week 7. Eagles QB Michael Vick will not play this week. Cowboys backup RB Lance Dunbar didn’t practice Wednesday which means that Joseph Randle will get most of the touches Sunday. The Minnesota Vikings have announced that Josh Freeman will start on Monday. Packers WR James Jones is questionable for this week’s game vs. Cleveland. Cecil Shorts is said to still be in a lot of pain and is doutbful to suit up vs. the Chargers Sunday. TB WR Mike Williams has resumed practicing and should start Sunday vs. Atlanta. - 10/16

Week 7 Byes: New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders.

Tuesday NFL Notes: Patriots LB Jerod Mayo will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn pec (OUCH!) Packers WR Randall Cobb has been placed on IR with a broken leg and will miss a minimum of 6 weeks.

Jets WR Clyde Gates was placed on the IR with a shoulder injury and he’s done for the year. Falcons WR Roddy White was seen hobbling Tuesday putting his status in question. Harry Douglas would likely be Ryan’s top target on Sunday should White not be able to go. With DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar out, look for Joseph Randle to get a ton of touches this weekend. Giants RB David Wilson is expected to miss at least 3-4 more weeks. Brandon Jacobs will start in his place. Vikings S Harrison Smith has turf toe. Eli Manning and Crew are going to light up Minny on MNF. The Vikes secondary is horrible right now. Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hammy) is expected to play Thursday night vs. Seattle. - 10/15

Monday NFL Notes: Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray sprained his left MCL and is likely to miss time. Joseph Randle will start in his absence. Pats WR Danny Amendola left Sunday’s game with a head injury. He was obviously concussed and will miss time. Dude is tough though! He wanted to go back in! The Bills have signed QB Matt Flynn. The signing means that they may be worried about Thad Lewis’s foot sprain. Packers WR Randall Cobb will miss multiple weeks with a knee injury. Saints TE Jimmy Graham is said to have suffered a foot injury Sunday and his status is unknown at this point. Texans S Danieal Manning injuried his right knee and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

Post Week 2 NFL Notes: Titans RB Shonn Greene had his knee scoped and will miss a few weeks. Jackie Battle will fill in during his absence. Phins nose tackle Paul Soliai tweaked his knee and is looking doubtful for week 3. Seahawks left tackle Russell Okung suffered a partial tear of his plantar plate (toe) and is listed as doubtful for Week 3. Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady will miss extended time with a Lisfranc sprain. TB safety Dashon Goldson has been suspended for a game for the helmet to helmet hit on Darren Sproles Sunday. Bolts WR Malcom Floyd is doubtful for Week 3 with a neck issue. Lions RB Reggie Bush is questionable with a knee stinger. Texans WR Andre Johnson will likely play in Week 3 despite suffering a concussion in Sunday’s win. Johnson has become the security blanket for Matt Schaub and leads the NFL in targets with 29. Ravens RB Ray Rice is questionable after injuring his hip flexor. Bernard Pierce is a sufficient backup so expect Baltimore to not be in any rush to get RR back on the field. Packers RB Eddie Lacy suffered a concussion and is doubtful for week 3. James Starks will start in his place. Jags RB Maurice Jones-Drew sprained a tendon Sunday and is very questionable to face Seattle in Week 3. The Jags are probably going to get blasted so we believe he will sit. Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden left Sunday’s game with a right thumb injury. Jason Campbell relieved him and looked horrible. The Browns are in trouble if Weeden’s injury is serious. Browns WR Josh Gordon returns this week from a 2 week drug related suspension. The Panthers suffered a huge blow losing free safety Charles Godfrey for the season with an achilles’ injury. Rams OL Rodger Saffold suffered an unidentified knee injury and is ?. Raiders SS Tyvon Branch hurt his ankle Sunday and is out indefinitely. NYG TE Brandon Myers suffered a rib injury Sunday and his status is unknown. Falcons RB Steven Jackson suffered some sort of quad injury Sunday. This is troublesome because he’s missed time in the past with the same problem. - 9/16

Rams DL Chris Long (hip) is listed as questionable for week 2 @ ATL. Broncos DB Champ Bailey is OUT for week 2 vs. the NYG. Colts RB Vick Ballard torn his right ACL in Thursday’s practice and is done for the season. Ahmad Bradshaw will now get the bulk of the carries. - 9/13

Thursday NFL Notes: The Pats are hoping to have TE Rob Gronkowski back for week 3 but are targeting Week 4 as a definite date. Cowboys WR Dez Bryant practiced Thursday and says his foot feels great. Giants LB Dan Connor was placed on injured reserve with a neck injury. He’ll miss the rest of the season. Falcons WR Roddy White missed practice Thursday. He’s expected to suit up, but his role will probably be minimal. Harry Douglas should have some nice fantasy appeal this week. Jags CB Alan Ball suffered a groin injury in practice Thursday. Texans DB Ed Reed will be a gametime decision Sunday (hip). Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (quad) is probably for Week 2. - 9/12

Thursday Week 2 NFL Game Preview and Play:
New York Jets vs. New England Patriots Pick (8:25PM EST)

Wednesday NFL Notes: Bengals stud Tackle Andrew Whitworth is close to returning and is awaiting medical clearance. He’s doubtful for MNF and will likely return in Week 3.

Reggie Bush suffered a discloated thumb and groin tweak but is probably for Sunday vs. Minnesota. Pats WR Danny Amendola is listed as doubtful for Thursday’s game. Look for Julian Edelman to get a ton of targets. DL Cliff Avril will make his Seahawks debut Sunday. - 9/11

Monday/Tuesday NFL Notes: The NYG have signed RB Brandon Jacobs. The big back is over the hill so this isn’t really news. Pats RB Shane Vereen will miss a few weeks with a broken wrist. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says tha Isaac Redman will start at RB despite fumbling twice and only gaining 8 years last week. Lions DL Ndamukong Suh was fined 100K for his low blow to Vikings C John Sullivan. This dude is a maniac! ESPN’s Ed Werder says that Pats WR Danny Amendola has a groin issue but it’s uncertain whether or not he’ll suit up Thursday night vs. the Jets. Minny QB Christian Ponder threw 2 picks despite being faced with 8 man fronts all day. Dez Bryant suffered a mild foot sprain Sunday night and is expected to play in week 2. The Steelers suffered a huge blow Sunday losing LB Larry Foote to a torn bicpes and C Maurkice Pouncey with a torn ACL/MCL. They looked like crap yesterday as well. Could be a long season for Pit. Chad Henne will start at QB for the Jags in Week 2. Panthers T Garry Williams tore his ACL/MCL and will miss the rest of the season. - 9/10

Friday NFL Notes: Seahawks DL Cliff Avril is doubtful for Sunday’s game at Carolina. As expected, Pats TE Rob Gronkowski is listed as doubtful at Buffalo. Arizona TE Rob Housler is OUT for week 1 @ St. Louis. Steelers TE Heath Miller is doubtful for Week 1. Expect the Texans to “ease in” RB Arian Foster, who will surrender some carries to Ben Tate. Broncos DB Champ Bailey is expected to play in Week 2. Bengals tackle Andrew Whitworth is listed as doubtful against the Bears. This is bad news for Cinci as Julius Peppers is likely to have a field day. Vikings DL Kevin Williams has bee ruled OUT. NYG DL Jason Pierre-Paul is listed as ?. Niners TE Vernon Davis is said to have worked out his differences with QB Colin Kaepernick and is expecting to have a huge season. Chris Ivory is supposedly going to get all the goal-line carries for the Jets (If they make it into the redzone that far!) - 9/6

Thursday Week 1 NFL Season Opener Preview and Pick:
Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos Pick. - 9/5

Thursday NFL Notes: Eagles players Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a scrap at Eagles practice Friday. Cooper’s racial slurs stemming from a Kenny Chesney concert this summer are likely to haunt him for quite some time. Jags RB Maurice Jones-Drew says he feels fine and can shoulder a full load. Not much else newsworthy today! - 9/5

Wednesday NFL Notes: E.J. Manuel has been named starter at quarterback for Buffalo. More NFL news to come later today. Geno Smith will start for the Jets at QB. Texans S Ed Reed is doubtful for the Texans MNF game. Denver had said Ronnie Hillman would start at RB but we’re now hearing that Knowshon Moreno may be the starter. Broncos DB Champ Bailey is OUT for Thursday’s game vs. the Ravens. Jags QB Blaine Gabbert is said to be a gametime decision. - 9/4

Tuesday NFL Notes: The Texans have signed Brian Cushing to a 6 year deal that locks him up through 2019. Jets RB Bilal Powell is listed number one on the Jets depth chart at RB but don’t be surprised to see Chris Ivory get more carries. The Cleveland Browns have signed K Billy Cundiff, who in my opinion is one of the worst kickers in the NFL. Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is said to be 100% healthy. Pittsburgh has stated that they’ll start Isaac Redman at RB. He’s SUPER cheap for those of you who play daily fantasy football. Many were wondering why the Steelers cut RB Jonathan Dwyer. Word is it was because he was 25 lbs overweight and the team felt he didn’t take his job serious enough. The Raiders have named Terrelle Pryor their Week 1 starting QB. - 9/3
