NFL IDP Fantasy Injury News and Observations

Week Four Injuries & Observations

  • Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison (knee) has suffered a setback in his return to the lineup. Harrison left the team's training facility before practice Wednesday, Sept. 26, because his knee bothered him following practice Tuesday, Sept. 25. 'It's a little bit of a setback,' said agent Bill Parise. 'Hopefully, it's not something that will derail our plans.' - Commented on 9/26

  • Pittsburgh Steelers SS Troy Polamalu (calf) has gone through two full practices this week and could be ready to return to play following the team's bye week. - Commented on 9/26

  • New York Giants CB Antrel Rolle (knee) is unsure if he will be able to play in the team's Week 4 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. 'Right now I can't say it's a for-sure thing,' Rolle said. - Commented on 9/26

  • The New England Patriots may consider moving CB Devin McCourty to safety after struggling with coverage at times in Week 3 and dropping two catchable interceptions. The team moved McCourty to safety last season and he seemed to do well at the position. That could be very interesting for IDP. For both McCourty & Kyle Arrington on the other side. - Commented on 9/26

  • The Oakland Raiders have signed free-agent DE Andre Carter. Carter agreed to sign an injury waiver that would financially protect the Raiders in the event that he suffers any setbacks with either his back or quadriceps injuries. - Commented on 9/26

  • New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said DE Quinton Coples will receive increased playing time in Week 4. His playing time had decreased the previous two weeks. - Commented on 9/26

  • New York Jets RB Joe McKnight accepts his new role as a cornerback, but he is not happy about the position switch. I was drafted as a running back,' McKnight said. 'The way I took it as I wasn't good enough to play running back; that's what I took it as. I don't know if that's the case or not.' McKnight, however, will still have a role on offense. - Commented on 9/26

  • Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison (knee) went through his first full practice Tuesday - Commented on 9/25

  • ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that an agreement between the NFL and NFLRA is at hand.  Thank God! - Commented on 9/25

  • The New York Jets will use RB Joe McKnight at cornerback, according to head coach Rex Ryan. My IDP radar went off on this one because if you play him as an RB, you also get credit for any tackles, pass deflections, INTs etc. he may have in IDP league. The problem here is he’s probably just a backup corner and he’s just a backup RB so this means nothing to us right now. However, if he does end up playing both ways and gets the same RB value he had towards the end of last year, than he’s an interesting play. - Commented on 9/25
