Redskins running back Samaje Perine sprained his ankle in Washington's second preseason game.
With Derrius Guice out for the season, Perine was in line to pick up a bigger load carrying the football. That may already be out the window depending on the severity of this injury. Rob Kelley will likely be the Redskins' early-down running back until further notice.
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy, “I do not have a timeline for when Dak Prescott will start throwing.”
McCarthy said Prescott, “still has some swelling he has to deal with” now that stitching is removed. Once swelling goes down, it becomes about strength, and then throwing. Reports yesterday Prescott wasn't ruling out a return in Week 4, but that doesn't seem likely at this point. Other reports said a Week 5 return was also possible.
The Chiefs selected Skyy Moore in the second round of this year’s draft and it seemed like he could be a significant early contributor to the team’s offense.
But instead, Moore has mostly been a punt returner — and even that is a job where he could use some improvement. Moore muffed the first punt of Sunday’s loss to the Colts, which set up an Indianapolis touchdown.
Moore has made only one catch so far — a 30-yard grab against the Cardinals in Week 1. He played only two offensive snaps in the Week 2 victory over the Chargers and eight offensive snaps in Sunday’s loss to the Colts. HC Andy Reid was quoted in the story as saying Moore's "time will come."
The Dolphins put the franchise tag on tight end Mike Gesicki this offseason despite questions about whether he’d fit in new head coach Mike McDaniel’s offense. Through three games, it’s looking like the answer to those questions is “No.”
This isn't breaking news to fantasy owners. Gesicki played just 17 snaps in Sunday’s win over the Bills and caught just one pass for six yards. For the season, Gesicki has just six catches for 48 yards. He hasn’t been in the starting lineup for any of the Dolphins’ three games and has played less than half of the Dolphins’ offensive snaps. The story said a trade may be hard because of his salary. Smythe, whose salary this season is just $2 million, has started all three games at tight end this season and moved ahead of Gesicki on the Dolphins’ depth chart, the story said.
