10/11 Player News

Rams WR Mark Clayton, who was finally coming into his own, suffered a knee injury Sunday against the Lions and is done for the year. Danny Amendola’s value skyrockets now and it remains to be seen whether or not Laurent Robinson will stay healthy or Brandon Gibson or rookie Mardy Gilyard will step up. The biggest loser in all of this is Sam Bradford, who failed to develop any type of rhythm after the Clayton injury.  SOURCE: Jim Thomas on Twitter

Green Bay TE Jermichael Finley was carted off the field today with a leg injury as well. He will undergo an MRI Monday. Finley apparently is dealing with a displaced hamstring, which is an extremely rare injury to have. Initially they thought it was a knee injury which would have been terrible news, but it looks like this won’t be season ending and he could be back within a week or two. We’ll keep you up to date on this situation throughout the week.

Green Bay may have also suffered an even bigger loss Sunday with QB Aaron Rodgers who suffered a concussion during the overtime period. He will undergo and have to pass numerous tests throughout the week in order to play week 6 so stay tuned to the situation. If he can’t go this week, Matt Flynn will get the start.  SOURCE: Jim Thomas on Twitter

Browns RB Peyton Hillis, who missed most of the teams practices leading into Sunday’s game with the Falcons with a quad injury, reaggravated it during the game. He put up a pretty productive fantasy day and probably isn’t in danger of missing week 6 but monitor the situation closely. He may be a guy you want to bench next week anyway as they travel to Pittsburgh to face the leagues best run defense, and not to mention the return of Ben Roethlisberger.

In other Browns news, QB Seneca Wallace, who got the start Sunday, left the game with a sprained ankle. The early reports are that he is unable to put any weight on the injured ankle. Jake Delhomme replaced him and did what Jake does and threw 2 interceptions.

Cowboys rookie receiver Dez Bryant suffered an ankle injury in the first half of Sundays loss against the Titans. He did return shortly thereafter but had a noticeable limp. His availability for next week is not yet known.

Raiders QB Bruce Gradkowski , who was having a shoulder issue coming into the week, left the game in the 2nd quarter after being sacked. He reaggravated the injury and Jason Campbell replaced him and lead the Raiders to their first victory over the Chargers in 13 meetings dating back to 2003. We’ll monitor this situation closely as he would have a pretty good matchup week six against the now winless 49ers.

Another player I own in a few leagues, Colts RB Joseph Addai , left Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury. The fact that he left the game and didn’t return is never a good sign but lets just hope it was precautionary. Donald Brown would get the start next Sunday in Washington, if he is healed up from his hamstring injury otherwise it would be Mike Hart, who ran pretty well against a solid Chiefs rush defense.

Lions WR Calvin Johnson injured his shoulder during Sunday’s blowout win over the Rams. It is not believed to be serious and more of a precaution. Check back in the coming days for updates.

Texans RB Arian Foster suffered a knee injury but reiterated after the game, “i’m fine” and I think we believe him as of right now. We’ll continue to monitor his status but I wouldn’t worry too much about him in week 6.

Eagles WR Desean Jackson(knee) and TE Brent Celek(possible concussion) both left Sunday night’s game against the 49ers. The severity of these injuries is not yet known but we will continue to keep track of both and keep you up to date.

Broncos rookie DeMaryius Thomas left Sunday’s road loss to the Ravens after just being absolutely leveled on a kickoff return. As of now the exact injury is not yet clear, although by the looks of it, I would figure it was some type of head injury, probably a concussion but we will keep you posted on his status.

Chargers WR Legedu Naanee left in the first half of Sunday’s loss to the Raiders with a hamstring injury and was unable to return after the half. Naanee, a guy I was very high on coming into the season, hasn’t done much since his big week 1 performance and is clearly behind Malcom Floyd (8 for 213 1TD Sunday) for targets and even Buster Davis at the moment.
