Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters RB Rashaad Penny injured his hamstring during Friday’s walkthrough and is now questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints.
Penny’s injury opens the door for more work for Chris Carson and perhaps C.J. Prosise. Penny was performing well and earning more work in the Seahawks offense, so it will be interesting to see how the carries are shared between Carson and Prosise, especially with the slow start for Carson.
Njoku was already expected to miss at least a month and the Browns have their bye in Week 8. The Browns have decided to place Njoku on injured reserve, meaning he will now miss at least eight weeks. Demetrius Harris is currently the starter for the Browns so expect the Browns to make a move to upgrade the position.
That was extremely quick. He lasts just one game in New England. But in the end, the whirlwind of news off the field surrounding Brown was too much to ignore and the Patriots decided to just cut their losses on Brown. The Patriots will eat almost $6 million in 2019 and almost $5 million in dead money by releasing Brown. Even without Brown, the Patriots still field a pretty dynamic receiving group with Josh Gordon, Julian Edelman and a rising Phillip Dorsett. The big question now is where Brown's next opportunity will be. If it couldn't happen in New England, it may be a good while before another team comes calling, especially the drama that will inevitably follow. Brown may be in for a long wait before suiting up and worrying about which helmet he will be playing with.
