While the focus this week has been all about a possible end to the labor madness, the bigger story, at least when it comes to fantasy football, centers around the availability of one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game…
Looks like Colt fans will be seeing a lot of Curtis Painter in the preseason. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Peyton won’t be ready for the start of camp … as he continues to recover from May neck surgery. The Colts are scheduled to open training camp on July 31, but it’s unknown when Manning will be able to participate, which puts a huge cloud of doubt over his status for the season, especially as a top fantasy QB. Manning had surgery on his neck back in March 2010, which didn’t cause him to miss any time, but the problems kept coming back during the season due to a calcium buildup. He attempted to avoid surgery by looking into other options after the Super Bowl, but this discomfort lingered and doctors insisted surgery was the only way to go. When the surgery was initially reported, Colt owner Jim Irsay didn’t seem alarmed, noting that the recovery was expected to be six to [...]
With the 2010 season in the books, we now move on to what should be a very interesting off-season. Speculation on the labor deal, free agency, and further coaching changes are in full swing, so let us take a look at the latest news from around the league.
Royal clicked better with QB Kyle Orton in their second year together, but his role will probably never be as big as it was when Jay Cutler was under center.
Eddie Royal undergoes hip surgery … and could be out for up to six months. While he could return for OTAs in May (if they take place), the recovery may end up keeping him sidelined even longer. Despite the injury, Royal didn’t miss any games in 2010 and caught 59 balls for 627 yards and 3 TDs playing primarily out of the slot. Royal is entering his fourth season in the league and the final year of his rookie deal.
Darrelle Revis wants Chad Ochocinco … to join him as a member of the New York Jets. Revis said he’s been in Ochocinco’s ear during the last week and believes the veteran receiver could do well as a Jet. However, Ochocinco [...]
We have reached Super Bowl Friday, meaning we are only two days away from what should be a thrilling Super Bowl. Unfortunately, that also means we are just three days away from a long, long off-season. With that, there is plenty of news to get to today, with non-Super Bowl teams still making headlines.
Sanchez struggled at times recently with a right shoulder injury, but he won't need surgery.
No surgery for Sanchez … Jet QB Mark Sanchez told reporters at the Super Bowl that he does not need surgery on his injured right throwing shoulder. That means he avoids a second straight off-season surgery after he had arthroscopic knee surgery last year. Sanchez said he no longer has swelling and bruising, and after examining results of MRIs, several doctors agreed that surgery is unnecessary. Sanchez originally injured his shoulder in Week Fifteen but played through it and although he looked shaky at times – including several overthrown passes at Indianapolis – he finished strong in the second half at Pittsburgh.
Driver sidelined on Thursday … There’s no need to panic, but Packer WR Donald Driver was sidelined for most of Thursday’s practice. Driver took part in only the early portion of [...]
