Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) may need surgery
Thursday, October 3, 2013, 11:55am
Ideally, the neck injury suffered by the veteran running back at San Francisco Sept. 22 will heal on its own with treatment and rest. However, the source added there is a level of concern that surgery might be required, which would bring into question Bradshaw’s status for the remainder of the season.

Brandon Jacobs has rushed for just 11 yards on 11 carries since he rejoined the Giants in early September. But the grizzled running back — the lone experienced runner the Giants have left — is going to get plenty of chances over the next few weeks.
The Giants’ decision to release third-down back Da’Rel Scott on Tuesday elevates Jacobs into a familiar role. As recently as 2011, he was the Giants’ power back, working with Ahmad Bradshaw to give them a solid rushing tandem. And now he will play a similar role behind second-year runner David Wilson.
We see Scott's release more as a vote of confidence for David Wilson, who will be asked to assume Scott's role on third-down. It's hard to envision Jacobs in that role.

Asked if the Dolphins need to throw deep more to WR Mike Wallace, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said that’s “easy to say [but] coverage dictates a lot of that. We’re getting more two safety-looks to take away deeper looks. We called 12 deep balls [Monday]. They didn’t go there because coverage didn’t allow it to go there. You can’t force things when they’re not there.”
Wallace has been a disappointment thus far in Miami. Other than a nice 9-115-1 outing in Week 2 against the Colts, he's averaging 2-20 in his other three games. At best, he's a WR3 at this point.

Brian Hoyer will start again for Browns

Hoyer, starting in the place of the injured Brandon Weeden, has led the Browns to two victories in a row. Weeden has a sprained thumb that he injured in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens. He resumed throwing last week.
