49ers running back Matt Breida left the first preseason game with a shoulder injury and did not return.
This would be a fairly significant injury, fantasy-wise, as Breida is expected to be closer to a 1B than a true No. 2 back to Jerick McKinnon this year. If he misses any time, it could leave McKinnon in a true workhorse role, or open up some touches for 2017 draft pick Joe Williams.
As Hensley notes, this is the 7th projected starter for the Ravens to test positive and the 8th straight day of at least one positive case for the team. At this point, it is anyone’s guess if this game will even stay intact for Tuesday or if the league will finally reach the tipping point to create a Week 18. The league has already pushed the game back twice from its original slot and had to adjust the Week 13 schedule also with the Ravens originally slated to face the Cowboys on Thursday.
The Jaguars fired GM Dave Caldwell following Sunday’s loss to the Browns.
The house-cleaning has begun. Head coach Doug Marrone probably isn’t too far behind. The Jags have lost ten straight since their season-opening win over the Colts. Jacksonville has been one of the worst teams and completely crumbled ever since their near appearance in Super Bowl LII. The carousel of quarterbacks this season didn’t help the team’s cause, but that was also due to some of the bad contracts the team gave Blake Bortles and Nick Foles. Caldwell becomes the second GM fired in as many days, following Bob Quinn getting his pink slip from the Lions Saturday.
Panthers WR DJ Moore left Sunday’s loss against the Vikings with an apparent ankle injury.
Moore went down with a non-contact injury and had to be helped off the field. No updates from the Panthers yet other than it appears to be his ankle. Hopefully it’s not a serious injury. Not the way the Panthers wanted to go into their bye week. Carolina hosts Denver in Week 14.
