LestersLegends Injury Report
It’s time to take a look around the league and see what’s happening on the injury front.
Bernard Berrian - Berrian sat out with a toe injury. That’s OK because starter Tarvaris Jackson also missed the game so he didn’t miss out on much.
Drew Carter - The Oakland WR will miss the season with a knee injury. Oakland really is cursed aren’t they?
Marques Colston - Colston got an early exit because of bruised ribs. Other than some discomfort, Colston should be fine for the opener.
Matt Hasselbeck – He will not play in tonight’s preseason game vs. San Diego because of his back. We’ll see if he gets any work in prior to the opener.
Andre Johnson - Though he did not make a catch, AJ did make his preseason debut for the Texans, helping fantasy owners (myself included) breath a little easier.
Bryant Johnson - Johnson has yet to play in the preseason because of a hamstring injury. He will likely be slow out of the gates, although playing his former team in Week 1 could serve as motivation.
Rudi Johnson - Forget Where’s Waldo, Where’s Rudi? Last year he let Kenny Watson outperform him because of injury. This year Chris Perry is taking the honors.
Maurice Jones-Drew - MJD left Jacksonville’s preseason clash with Tampa after hurting his ankle. It doesn’t appear to be serious though, and he should be good to go in the opener.
Kyle Kosier - Kosier suffered a sprained foot that could keep him out of the first month of the season. Why is he important? He’s the starting RG for Dallas. Life could be a little more difficult for Romo, MB3, and company.
Carson Palmer - Palmer had his nose broken for him. It shouldn’t have an impact on his play.
Jonathan Stewart - I guess the toe is feeling better. In his first preseason action J-Stew (my presason ROY) ripped off 100 yards and a TD in ten carries.
Jason Taylor - Dancing with the Stars’ Jason Taylor sprained a knee. He could miss the opener, but I would guess he’ll be back in time.
Osi Umenyiora – Osi is out for the season following a knee injury. Unless they can drag Michael Strahan out of retirement, I would bump NYG DEF down a few notches. If you took Osi as a IDP, you will have to look elsewhere.
