Can you say hot name on the waiver wire?

Favre hits Coles for second touchdown

Brett Favre just hit Laveranues Coles for the second time on what was a lucky touchdown.

Coles was being covered by Cardinals CB Eric Green, who went down with some sort of injury at the start of the play. That left Coles wide open for the score, which covered 34 yards.

Cutler finds Marshall for touchdown

Jay Cutler just hit Brandon Marshall on a 16-yard score to put the Broncos ahead of Kansas City 7-6. Cutler- to-Marshall is fast becoming the hottest quarterback-to-wide receiver combination in fantasy football.

Gross leaves game for Panthers

Panthers OT Jordan Gross was forced to the leave game against the Falcons with an undisclosed injury in the first quarter. He appeared to get hit in the head following a 1-yard run by DeAngelo Williams and fell awkwardly, laying face down on the grass.

Westbrook, McGahee both risks this week

A good friend of mine, Anita Marks from 1300 ESPN Radio in Baltimore, is friends with Brian Westbrook.

He sent her a text this morning and said he will be “careful” tonight. That indicates he’ll play (although that’s not in stone), but it doesn’t mean he’ll start. Those decisions are made by coach Andy Reid and the trainers.

Saints to get McAllister more involved

After virtually ignoring running back Deuce McAlister in the season’s first three weeks, the Saints plan to use him extensively Sunday versus the San Francisco 49ers.

Until now, the Saints have been cautious with McAlister, who still is recovering from last season’s torn ACL. He has had only two carries for 10 yards. The Saints believe McAlister’s knee is structurally sound, and they plan to work him into their offense against the Niners.
