Fantasy Football Bumps & Bruises

Sep 20, 2009

Brian Westbrook (ankle) and DeSean Jackson (groin) were banged up in Philadelphia’s loss to the Saints.  Both will likely miss some practice time this week so you’ll have to monitor their availability.  New Orleans’ Mike Bell hurt his knee, which could open the door for Pierre Thomas.  Lance Moore (hamstring) was knocked out of the Saints.  He seems like a forgotten man.

Frank Gore shredded Seattle’s Defense, but injured his ankle along the way.  Fortunately for Gore owners, it doesn’t appear to be serious.

Matt Hasselbeck (ribs) left today’s game.  Hopefully, you have good options in case he’s out for an extended period.  Trent Edwards, David Garrard, Kyle Orton, or Byron Leftwich may be available in your league if need be.

Seattle’s Rookie Tackle Jason Smith
injured his knee.  If he’s out, Steven Jackson and Marc Bulger and company could continue to struggle.
