1 of 3

It’s that time again, Addicts!  Here is your weekly roundup of NFL news and rumors.  Plenty to go through as the season continues to move right along.  As is to be expected, the majority of news coming down the pipe is injury related.  As the season goes on, that will be the primary news to expect.  However, this is also turning out to be a pretty active season as far as trading goes.

So let’s get to it…

Atlanta Falcons:  The Falcons will be without running back Tevin Coleman for a couple of weeks as he deals with a broken rib.  This will put even more of the offensive workload on Julio Jones.

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens have traded for Miami defensive back Will Davis.  The Ravens will part with a seventh-round pick for the former third-round player.

Buffalo Bills: The Bills have traded quarterback Matt Cassel and a 2017 seventh-round pick to the Cowboys for a 2017 fifth-round pick.  Overall, that’s not a bad deal at all for the Bills who appear to have some confidence in the future of current starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Chicago Bears: The Bears have reportedly lost quarterback Jay Cutler for two weeks with a hamstring injury.  However, head coach John Fox is not yet ruling him out for this Sunday.  Why?!  This is your legitimate chance to move Cutler aside and put the team in a position to move on without bringing your job into question!!!  It’s too perfect…so of course the Bears will mess it up!  To play even more into this situation, the Bears are still unsure of the status of star wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey.

Dallas Cowboys:  The Cowboys are down another star as quarterback Tony Romo was placed on Injured Reserve with Designation to Return for a broken collarbone.  The move comes at a rough time as the Cowboys have some tough games coming up, and are also currently without Dez Bryant.  To help fill in, the Cowboys traded for veteran Matt Cassel.

Green Bay Packers: The Packers have lost defensive lineman Josh Boyd for the year due to a broken ankle.  Boyd was a rotational player, so the injury will not be difficult for the team to overcome.  The more pressing news for the Packers is the availability of wide receiver Davante Adams and running back Eddie Lacy.  Both players were injured against the Seahawks.  Neither is believed to have a serious injury, but it is unclear as to whether or not either will be available this week against the Chiefs.  The injuries to the two offensive playmakers is further exacerbated by the injury of Bryan Bulaga, who is expected to miss four to six weeks with a knee injury.

Chiefs’ take

: The Chiefs would seemingly be getting the Packers at exactly the right time to stage an upset.
