Week 8 Sunday morning updates
Happy Sunday, Fools!
As always, follow my tweets (www.twitter.com/ladd_biro) for game day inactives and other breaking news.
Here's what I'm hearing and reading so far this morning...
Brian Westbrook will be sitting out recovering from the severe concussion he incurred last week. LeSean McCoy remains a solid start in his absence.
Reggie Wayne should be good to go. I still like Austin Collie today.
Nothing official yet, but ESPN is reporting that Matthew Stafford will start while Calvin Johnson sits OUT today. As I responded to one Fool's question this morning, if Megatron suits up against the Rams, he knocks T.O. out of my lineup today. But it doesn't look that way now.
Andre Johnson and his bruised lung will play in Buffalo.
Mario Manningham is probably OUT today with his sore/separated shoulder, per ESPN. That's good news for Steve Smith and Hakeem Nicks owners.
Jerricho Cotchery will be in the Jets' lineup, opposite Braylon. Expect Mark Sanchez to try to exploit the Dolphins' rookie cornerbacks today. But don't be surprised if one of those rookies takes one of the rookie QB's passes to the house.
Percy Harvin is good to go. Bernard Berrian probably isn't, which improves both Percy's and Sidney Rice's chances for success.
Good chance of showers today for the games in Green Bay, Baltimore and Philly.
