Evening Player News 11/2

Randy Moss

According to the Miami Herald’s Jeff Darlington, the Dolphins are giving Randy Moss “serious consideration” leading up to Wednesday’s waiver claim deadline.

Darlington’s source said any organization would be “foolish” not to strongly consider putting in a waiver claim for Moss. Darlington’s colleague Armando Salguero reported similar sentiments on Monday. The Dolphins are interested in bringing aboard a deep threat to stretch the defense, but they’re only 18th in the waiver order.


Percy Harvin

Coach Brad Childress is confident that Percy Harvin (ankle) will “find a way to get on the field this week.” The loss of Moss will affect how defenses cover Harvin as he’s expected to see more double teams and bracket coverage. Either way he’s too talented to sit. He will probably find a way to go this week


Jamarcus Russell and J.P. Losman

Both worked out for the Redskins on Tuesday, why? I have no idea. Russell reported at 286 pounds, which is a load. Boy can Eat!


Sidney Rice

Coach Brad Childress indicated Tuesday that there’s a chance Sidney Rice (hip) could get back on the field for practice this week. I think Childress is just saying this to make the Moss trade look better. I wouldn’t expect Rice back and healthy until Week 12 or 13 at the least.


Desean Jackson

DeSean Jackson met with an independent neurologist on Tuesday, but he didn’t say whether he passed his final concussion test. Were just gonna have to wait and see with Jackson. He says he feels good and the headaches have been minimal, but again with how hard he got hit there is a good chance he misses this weeks game against the Colts


Donald Driver

Donald Driver (quad) told radio station 620 AM WTMJ in Milwaukee that he will not play Sunday against the Cowboys. Driver has been struggling with the quad for the past month and he has been killing fantasy owners. Hang onto Driver because when he’s healthy he is a nice wideout to own.


Craig Davis

Chargers placed WR Craig “Buster” Davis (groin) on injured reserve, ending his season. Chargers lose another wideout. Malcolm Floyd isn’t expected back this week either, so that makes Patrick Crayton a very nice start this week vs Houston.


Vernon Davis

Vernon Davis insisted Tuesday that his ankle is “fine” after it forced him out of Sunday’s game against the Broncos. 49ers have a bye this week so Davis should be fine for Week 10.


Ryan Torain

Although Ryan Torain’s MRI showed no tear in his hamstring, coach Mike Shanahan is still unsure if his starting running back will be available in Week 10.
“The MRI on Torain was good [news],” Shanahan said. “So there wasn’t a tear. Does that mean he’ll be able to go next Monday? I’m hoping so.”  Torain is hurt yet again. He is going to miss this week, Hamstring injuries are something that linger. Keiland Williams will become the starter with Clinton Portis still injured as well, although Portis might be back around week 12.


Logan Mankins

Patriots LG Logan Mankins officially reported to the team Tuesday.

He’ll sign his tender Tuesday and will be eligible to play in Week 9, though it’s not clear if the Patriots plan on him doing so. Mankins is signing sooner than expected, as he didn’t need to report until November 16 in order to accrue another year toward unrestricted free agency. This helps the Patriots pass game and run game,  a great addition to this already solid offense.
Nnamdi Asomugha
Raiders coach Tom Cable said it’s possible RCB Nnamdi Asomugha (ankle) could play in Week 9. Raiders have a huge game with the Chiefs so they need Nnamdi. High ankle sprains are nothing to play with, stay tuned.
Shawn Merriman
Was released today by the Chargers, his days in San Diego are done.
