Week 8 Players in the News


The Latest News

Quarterback

*** Saturday Update *** QB Trent Green (KC) will be playing Sunday with a heavy heart. He was informed Friday that his father, Jim had suffered a fatal heart attack. His father was just 58 years old and had not experienced any health problems previously. Green will join the team in San Diego. Coach Dick Vermeil confirmed that Green would be the starting QB Sunday.

Running Back

*** Saturday Update *** RB Fred Taylor (JAX) will be a game time decision. Coach Jack Del Rio said he'll make a decision based on how Taylor is able to warm up. He sounded a little more optimistic today: "We anticipate in having him. I'm just trying to be as accurate as possible (about the injury). We're far more optimistic than we were two weeks ago." If Taylor can't go or is limited, Greg Jones would see action.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Corey Dillon (NE) is still expected to start by many but it's important to understand this has not been confirmed by the team. Fantasy owners need to understand the risk involved. #1, it's not a given that Dillon will start. #2, if he does start, there's some worry as to how long he'd be able to go. We wish we could tell you definitively but the reality is that Bill Belichick will keep this as secretive as possible. Add to it the fact that it's the night game and we likely won't know any more tommorrow morning than we do right now. All in all, it's a very risky situation for Dillon owners.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Cadillac Williams (TB) looks like he'll play at least some tomorrow. Said Williams after Friday's practice, "Right now it's still a day-by-day thing, but I feel pretty good. This is pretty much the best I've felt since the injury." We think he'll be able to start but if the game gets out of hand early (which it easily could against the hapless 49ers) don't be surprised to see Williams be relieved by Michael Pittman.

Wide Receiver

*** Saturday Update *** WR Samie Parker (KC) will not play in week eight. Dante Hall will start in his place.

Tight End

*** Saturday Update *** TE David Martin (GB) will be a game time decision but we're pessimistic Saturday night that he'll be able to play. Donald Lee would see plenty of action if Martin can't go.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Julius Jones (DAL) did not practice on Thursday and is not expected to play in week eight.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Julius Jones (DAL) is improving (he did a few drills on the field Wednesday rather than merely ride the stationary bike), but it looks like he’ll sit another week with his high ankle sprain. That will allow him an additional week to recover (Dallas is off week nine).

RB Julius Jones (DAL) “doesn’t look good” to return in week eight according to HC Bill Parcells. Obviously, his status will depend on whether or not he practices this week, but right now it looks like Parcells is pessimistic about Jones’ return.

If Taylor can't go or is limited, Greg Jones would see action.

*** Friday Update *** RB Fred Taylor (JAX) did not practice on Friday and has been downgraded to questionable. While he will be a game-time decision, we are very worried about him being able to play in week eight. It's never a good thing for a player to be downgraded late in the week.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Cadillac Williams (TB) practiced on Thursday and remains listed as questionable. He is still likely a game-time decision for week eight. For his part, Williams says he will play. Coach Jon Gruden was optimistic: "This is the first live action we've seen from him in some time, so we're going to just kind of keep him as questionable but let everybody know that we are optimistic. We are encouraged by what we see." Gruden said he looked to be moving well: "I thought he ran and showed some explosive change today. We're optimistic that he'll play in the game."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Cadillac Williams (TB) practiced fully on Wednesday but remains questionable for week eight.

It's a different role for me, and I have to accept it." The team is keeping Witten in to block and assist the weakened offensive line. "It's totally different," Witten said.

TM Dallas Cowboys (DAL) PK Shaun Suisham has been signed by the team to kick. Jose Cortez was waived after Sunday’s game.

TM New York Giants (NYG) Hall of Fame owner of the Giants, Wellington Mara passed away at the age of 89. He'd owned the Giants for an incredible 75 years as his father made him co owner of the team with his older brother at the age of 14. Said Ernie Accorsi, GM of the Giants: "The NFL can never be the same. He saw the first game ever played by this franchise in 1925. He shaped nearly every rule and philosophy we have in our league today. And most of all, he was the moral conscience of the National Football League. He now joins the pantheon of incredible men who made this league what it has become: George Halas, Pete Rozelle, Art Rooney, Paul Brown, Leon Hess, Vince Lombardi, all of whom left us with a feeling of emptiness with their passing." For many more quotes and reflections on Mr. Mara, see this link: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/9003015
