Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald noted that DeAngelo Williams (foot) had shed his boot and was walking without a limp on Monday. With Matt Moore out again, and Jonathan Stewart hurt, the Panthers really need Williams back. Stay tuned, but it looks like Williams should be back for a nice matchup against Tampa Bay.
Austin Collie (concussion) has already been ruled out for Week 10 against the Bengals. I don’t think anybody would expect him back after that hit he took Sunday.
Tom Brady’s completion percentage has dropped 11.4 points and his passer rating 24.9 points since the Patriots traded Randy Moss a month ago.
Brady is passing for almost a yard less per attempt, and he’s even getting sacked more with defenses creeping up closer to the line of scrimmage. Brady isn’t alone, though. Pats tight ends have seen their catch percentage drop from 86 percent to 58, and Wes Welker’s catch rate, yards per target, and yards after the catch are all down significantly.
Reggie Bush (Fibula)
Believes he’s pretty much ready to go for Sunday. “Just trying to do everything I can to get back on the field but I feel really good, I feel like I’ll be more than 100 percent,” said Bush. “This bye week has come at a perfect time.” As a Bush owner I’m excited to finally have him back. With Pierre Thomas still banged up, Bush should see a fairly good amount of touches.
Matthew Stafford (Shoulder)
According to Fox Sports Detroit’s Mike O’Hara, Matthew Stafford’s latest shoulder injury is “worse” than the one he sustained in the season opener. Looks like Stafford is going to miss the rest of the year. Shaun Hill is still hurt, so Drew Stanton should take the duties in week 11. Stafford is very talented but is really is softer than Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Clinton Portis (groin)
Clinton Portis (groin) expects to be a game-time decision for this week’s game against the Eagles. Either way Ryan Torain is going to take the majority of the carries, but Portis’ return definitely hurts Torain’s value.
Coach Josh McDaniels indicated Tuesday that Knowshon Moreno is as healthy as he’s been all year. Denver needs him healthy. They have become very one dimensional and it has really hurt their offense. Don’t bank on Moreno staying healthy.
Joseph Addai (Shoulder)
The Indianapolis Star’s Phillip B. Wilson believes Joseph Addai (shoulder) is “likely” to return to game action in Week 11 at New England. Will see, but two weeks rest should be enough.
