Jones’ status uncertain: On a night when not much went right for the Baltimore Ravens, the team now is awaiting word on the status of receiver Jacoby Jones, who left the game with a sprained knee. The injury occurred on a punt return in the second quarter when teammate Brandyn Trawick collided with an unaware Jones, who was calling for a fair catch. The hybrid receiver-returner is scheduled to undergo an MRI later Friday. In Jones’ stead last night, Marlon Brown acquitted himself well in the blowout loss. The rookie caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdowns. If Jones can’t go in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns, Brown might be worth considering off the waiver wire.
Holmes expects to play Week 1: Funny how some veterans have their injuries heal up once training camp ends and the season begins. Count Santonio Holmes among that number. After telling people all summer that he wasn’t sure when he would play, it now looks like the Jets wideout could play Week 1. Holmes, for his part, isn’t quite committing to that — even if people inside the team are. With Gang Green’s quarterback situation (and offense in general) in disarray, it’s hard to really trust him as a fantasy option right now.
Wallace talking big for Week 1: The preseason connection between Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace was a work in progress, but the Dolphins newest receiver is more than confident that things will go smoothly when the lights go on for real in Week 1. Expecting to face Cleveland shutdown corner Joe Haden, Wallace says the defensive back “better be ready“. There have been a lot of big forecasts being thrown around regarding Miami’s offense For the sake of fantasy owners, it would be fantastic if they came through. But for now, we’re remaining skeptical.
