Sit Stevie: According to a report on the official Bills team site, coach Doug Marrone “(doesn’t) feel good” about Stevie Johnson’s chances of seeing the field in Week 11. Johnson picked up a groin injury last week against the Steelers, but he hasn’t been a consistent fantasy threat when he’s healthy. Stevie seems to have one good week every so often, then lets his owners down more often than not. If you had been banking on him starting this week, you may want to jump on the waiver wire and make other plans.
Broken Law: Remember when going into the season, the consensus was BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovanni Bernard would split carries until a winner emerged? Bernard went on to claim Cincinanti’s featured back role, but this tidbit may have something to do with why: Green-Ellis revealed on Wednesday that he’s been playing with a broken thumb since Week 2. Ouch … certainly makes it tough to get a good grip on the ball. Surprisingly, he’s only fumbled the ball once all year long. But the natural talent levels between the two players are evident. If you own Bernard, you’re in much better shape than Green-Ellis owners.
Raiders unsure about Pryor: Terrelle Pryor’s knee is bugging him, but the Raiders aren’t tipping their hand one way or another about whether he’ll play this weekend in Houston. “We’ll monitor Terrelle as he goes through the week and see how he’s feeling as the week goes on,” coach Dennis Allen said. Ok, then. Something tells me the Raiders are in big trouble in this spot. Despite having lost seven straight games, the Texans have a quarterback who is unexpectedly hitting a big stride, having thrown for three TDs in each of his last two games. It’s unlikely Oakland’s offense will be able to keep pace, whether Pryor starts or not. Don’t rule out another huge day for Keenum, as the Raiders secondary conceded seven touchdown passes to Nick Foles just a couple games ago.
