Last-minute notes for tonight's drafters

Here's some late-breaking news you should know if you're drafting tonight or tomorrow.

Jags RB Rashad Jennings, who I recommended picking up very late in my Perfect Draft column, has been placed on IR with a knee injury. I wouldn't try to guess who's the next handcuff to MJD, since the Jags are likely to bring in a free agent rusher to replace Jennings.

Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki is also on IR with a knee injury. That's too bad...I liked his chances to be a decent fantasy contributor this season.

The Cowboys have settled on Dan Bailey as their FG/XP kicker. David Buehler will handle kickoffs.

Finally, as you know, Arian Foster is dealing with a hamstring injury of unknown severity. He says it's no big deal, but informed peeps who've seen his MRI say it's pretty bad and he could be out for 1 or 2 weeks, even longer. He may not be worth the risk of a mid-first rounder, but you have to consider him if he falls late in the 1st or even into the second.
