Player Updates 9/15

Eagles QB Kevin Kolb will not practice until Friday at the earliest. Mike Vick is a must add in all formats especially against the Lions this week as he will receive all first time snaps until Friday at minimum. Kolb suffered a concussion last weekend against the Packers and most likely won’t play in Week 2. Get out there and grab Vick if your a Kolb owner or as a matchup play.

Giants TE Kevin Boss has been ruled out for Sundays game against the Colts. 2nd year TE Travis Beckum is expected to start and could have a decent game. Neither one is ownable at the moment except in 2 TE formats, but keep an eye on Beckum as he could be a viable option at some point if Boss missed extended time.

Mike Mulligan of the Chicago Sun Times believes that RB Chester Taylor, not Matt Forte should be on the field during goal line plays. Forte is still not much of a threat in the run game as he has yet to average 4.0 yards per carry in his short career. Taylor is a bigger, stronger back who may vulture a few scores going forward. Taylor has only had 1 real shot at a full-time gig in his career and is a must handcuff for Forte owners.

Cardinals #3WR Early Doucet, who left Sundays game with a groin injury, will be reevaluated later this week. I don’t recommend using him this week as a starter, but wouldn’t cut bait on him either just yet.  He does have an injury history, but is very talented and should be back shortly and could be a viable flex play in the coming weeks.

There are conflicting reports on the Matthew Stafford injury. Some have said it’s a shoulder separation and he would miss 6-8 weeks, and during an interview with a Detroit Radio station Dr. Stan Sczecienski said there might be evidence that Matt Stafford’s shoulder injury may just be a bad bruise and not a separation, which could only sideline him about 2 weeks.  This is still and unsettled subject that needs to be watched closely. Don’t cut bait on Stafford just yet especially if he’s your backup at the moment. Wait this out until there is an official diagnosis.

Hopefully Jake Delhomme is not on your roster but if so make sure he is not in your lineup this week as he will be a game time decision after suffering an ankle injury against the Buccaneers. He is currently in a walking boot and will not practice until Friday at the earliest. Seneca Wallace will start if Jake can’t go.

Panthers QB Matt Moore, who was putrid at best against the G-Men last weekend is expected to practice and start in this weeks home opener against the Bucs according to NFL Networks Steve Wyche. Moore suffered a concussion late in the game Sunday, but was not very effective before that point either. He shouldn’t be on your roster anytime soon until he shows some positive signs.

We’ll have more updates as they become available. Have a great day, while I go and attempt to find an employer to support my Fantasy Money League addictions.
