Jags WR Cecil Shorts III (hamstring) is out for the game.
Shorts can't seem to shake the hamstring issues. With Marquis Lee also out, WRs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns combined for 10 catches while TE Clay Harbor added eight more from rookie QB Blake Bortles. Outside of deep leagues, it's tough to put anyone from the Jags in your starting lineup.
He walked off under his own power but was carted to the locker room for X-rays.
Bridgewater tells NFL Media's Omar Ruiz that his ankle injury "is just a sprain." The rookie signal-caller says he will be fine and expects to play Thursday against the Packers.
Bridgewater looked impressive in the win over Atlanta but the Falcon defense has made many look impressive this year. While Bridgewater said he expects the play, it would be hard to take his word right now, especially with a quick-turnaround, Week 5 game Thursday night. Bridgewater is worth owning, but if he plays against the Packers Thursday night it will be a big test on the road, and owners should probably temper expectations for another performance like Week 4. Christian Ponder would get the start if Bridgewater can't go.
Carr's knee was twisted at the end of a scramble. Despite a heavy limp, he stayed in for one more play before it became obvious that he couldn't put any weight on the leg.
He was promptly sent to the locker room for X-rays and did not return.
The rookie authored an impressive opening touchdown drive vs. the Miami Dolphins, but failed to move the offense over the next two quarters.
Matt McGloin took over for Carr and did throw for a TD pass but it was an overall ugly performance for the Raiders offense. Matt Schaub didn't make the trip to England and the Raiders have a bye in Week 5. Carr's injury is said to keep him out a couple of weeks, so right now it's anyone's guess as to who starts in Week 6.
After the game, 49ers TE Vernon Davis said he experienced back spasms after getting hit awkwardly and bending forward, and that he felt confident that all would be well enough for him to be on the field against the Chiefs next weekend.
“I’ll be good,” Davis said, via the San Francisco Chronice. “I’ll be fine.”
After Williams left the stadium in a walking boot, his status for the team's Week 5 tilt against the Bears is in serious doubt, according to a source informed of the injury.
Darrin Reaves, who was signed from the practice squad, took over for Williams as did Tauren Poole. Obviously, the Panthers RB situation is pretty dire right now. With Mike Tolbert on IR and Jonathan Stewart also out in Week 4, the Panthers could be left scrambling to add another RB before Week 5. Coming off two straight ugly losses, the Panthers face a rugged schedule that -- after the Bears tilt -- features games against the Bengals, Packers, Seahawks, Saints, Eagles and Falcons.
