Victor Cruz concussed, also has sprained knee

NFL.com - [Full Article]

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz left the third quarter of Sunday's Seahawks showdown with a concussion and knee sprain.

After the game, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he was unsure if Cruz will be shelved for the remainder of the season.

"I haven't had a chance to visit in there (the medical room)," Coughlin said. "I know he came down on the side of his head, so we'll see."

Fantasy Impact:

There's little point in rushing Cruz back for the final two games, but we'll have to see what the Giants decide. Either way, his status for Week 16 doesn't look very good right now. Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and Louis Murphy could see a lot of time over the final two weeks.

Giants QB Eli Manning, along with older brother Peyton, is working out at Duke University this week, according to ESPN. The Mannings are there with Duke coach David Cutcliffe, a college coach of both brothers, as well as three Giants and three Broncos teammates.

Manning brought Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and recently signed Louis Murphy, per ESPN. The Giants offseason program begins next Monday, and Manning hopes Cruz is working alongside him in East Rutherford as well.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a good sign for both Hakeem Nicks (knee) and Victor Cruz (contract) that they're with Manning at these workouts. Nicks looks to be recovering from a knee scope and if Cruz didn't think he'd be getting a deal done with the Giants, he probably wouldn't be there.

Brandon LaFell has turf toe injury
Tuesday, December 4, 2012, 9:14am

Joe Person on Twitter - [Full Article]

Panthers interim GM Brandon Beane says WR Brandon LaFell has turf toe, questionable at this point for Falcons game.

Fantasy Impact:

Louis Murphy should fill in if LaFell misses time, which seems pretty likely despite being listed as questionable. Armanti Edwards could also see some more time.

Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell suffered a foot injury of undetermined severity.

"He sprained the foot and we'll see how that goes," Rivera said.

Fantasy Impact:

Louis Murphy would likely step in for LaFell if he would miss any time. Murphy had one catch for eight yards but it was for a TD.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Panthers WR Brandon LaFell pretty much has locked up the No. 2 wide receiver job opposite Steve L Smith.

But there’s a logjam of receivers after that.

David Gettis, Louis Murphy and Seyi Ajirotutu seem to be competing for the No. 3 spot. But they might not all make the team. The Panthers also are high on younger receivers Kealoha Pilares, Joe Adams and Armanti Edwards, each of whom can contribute in the return game.

Edwards, whom the Panthers drafted as a project in 2010, has shown some promise in camp but probably isn’t going to make the roster ahead of Adams and Pilares.

Fantasy Impact:

Lafells could be inline for a breakout season, he's just going to need to see targets. We rank him 41st among our WRs and according to his ADP, he's not even getting drafted in standard leagues. He's someone to keep an eye on if you wait on WRs and end up needing some help, but until we see something, he's really just a flier right now.

WR Louis Murphy traded from Raiders to the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact:

Murphy was rumored on the roster bubble for Oakland. The Panthers have a lot of question marks at WR outside of Steve L. Smith. Brandon LaFell was the number-two prior to the trade.
