Fantasy Football Bumps & Bruises Week 3
Sep 28, 2009
It appears that it’s the perfect time for a Henne. Chad Pennington (shoulder) likely can’t go next week against Buffalo so Chad Henne will get his first NFL start. Hopefully you weren’t relying on Pennington and won’t have to turn to Henne.
Update: ESPN is reporting that Chad Pennington is done for the year.
It looks like St. Louis lost one of their only weapons as Laurent Robinson
(knee) is expected to miss a couple of games. Perhaps, Donnie Avery
can pick up his play. Keenan Burton
will replace Robinson, but offers little hope to fantasy owners. Marc Bulger
(shoulder) was replaced by Kyle Boller
, but neither offer any fantasy hope.
Update: St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting Robinson is done for the year and that Bulger doesn’t have a torn rotator cuff.
(ankle) is also likely out a couple of games. Glen Coffee
will replace him as the lead Back. The Niners will want to run the football, so he’s worth grabbing.
(shoulder) left the Detroit Lions victory party early. Maurice Morris
scored a TD filling in for him. This is a situation worth monitoring. Morris isn’t a great play, but if he’s going to start, he’ll be worth a roster spot.
No physical ailment to report for Brady Quinn, but he likely suffered a bruise to his pride and a bump to his ego as he was replaced by Derek Anderson in Cleveland’s embarrassing loss to Baltimore. Quinn will likely be back as the starter next week, but does it really matter?
Laurence Maroney hurt his leg in the Patriots’ win over Atlanta. It’s hard to gauge any New England injury, but clearly you can’t count on Maroney at this point injured or healthy. If he misses time, Fred Taylor sees an increase in his fantasy value.
