Noteworthy nuggets from Week 8

A look back at some of the most interesting numbers and statistics to come out of Week 8, with an assist from the crew on the NFL Network research desk.

Fisher: Britt to miss ‘extended period of time’

The initial postgame reports on the right hamstring injury suffered by WR Kenny Britt don’t appear positive for the Titans.

Injury roundup: V.Y., Britt sidelined for Titans

The Titans lost QB Vince Young and WR Kenny Britt to injuries in Week 8, two of the most notable players on the injury radar.

Favre after hit: ‘I’ll be fine’

A follow up on Brett Favre, who still took the podium following Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, even though he wasn’t able to finish the game after taking a hard hit to the chin during the fourth quarter.

Titans’ Young sidelined, replaced by Collins

Titans QB Vince Young left Sunday’s game against the Chargers with a left leg injury.

Asomugha leaves game with ankle injury

An injury update out of Oakland, where Nnamdi Asomugha had to be helped off the field after suffering a right ankle injury during the fourth quarter against the Seahawks.

Favre sidelined after hit, Jackson in for Vikings

A woozy and shaken up Brett Favre left Sunday’s game during the fourth quarter for the Minnestoa Vikings and was later carted off the sideline at Gillette Stadium.

McFadden, Lynch and Tate add to already crazy day

There are two kinds of heartbreak in fantasy football. Which one happened to you today?

Hall pulled, Anderson in for Cardinals

A rough start in Arizona by Cardinals rookie QB Max Hall – rough to the tune of two interception returns for touchdowns — has resulted in a Derek Anderson sighting during the second quarter.

That figures, Mathews scores

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews scored a rushing touchdown, so you know what that means — time for Mathews to sit on the bench. Because Mathews always gets benched when ever he shows some flashes.

Memo to Hall: Throw it to Fitzgerald

Why does Cardinals QB Max Hall wear one of those wrist bands with all of the plays on it? The only thing that should be written on Hall’s arm should be — THROW IT TO LARRY — in huge block letters. Any play coming through the headset should just be translated to “throw it to Larry Fitzgerald.”

Britt questionable to return for Titans

One early injury update out of San Diego, where Titans WR Kenny Britt is questionable to return after suffering a right hamstring injury.

Lions QB Stafford returns with a bang

Lions QB Matthew Stafford seems ready to play. At least that is what his four-touchdown performance against the Redskins told us.

Vikings’ Harvin suffers ankle injury

Vikings WR Percy Harvin left Sunday’s game against the Patriots during the first quarter with a left ankle injury.

Redskins pull McNabb late against Lions

When the Redskins had one last chance to defeat the Lions in Detroit on Sunday, they chose to do so without starting QB Donovan McNabb.
