Maurice Jones-Drew, the NFL’s second-leading rusher, won’t play in the Jaguars’ home game against the Redskins because of a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week.

What in the name of Bud Grant happened this week? Outdoor football in Minnesota? Rex Grossman? And Tim Tebow having a better fantasy week than Philip Rivers, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning? What a crazy week, let’s break it all down.

Here’s a compliation of notes and states from the crew on the NFL Network research desk and the NFL communication offices.
What an odd week for fantasy quarterbacks. Redskins QB Rex Grossman tosses four touchdown passes. Broncos QB Tim Tebow is proving to be a dual-threat. And Colts QB Peyton Manning managed to escape again without throwing an interception.

Pulling in a couple of fantasy thoughts from the Twitterverse.
It’s officially on paper: Donovan McNabb is the Redskins’ backup QB.

The Broncos will go with QB Tim Tebow, meaning that the Raiders defense will become an excellent play against the rival Broncos. This also means that you will want to bench WR Brandon Lloyd, which should probably be viewed as a good thing considering he has struggled in recent weeks.

The old cliché states that defense wins championships. Well, it might also help you win a fantasy championship, too.
It’s bad enough there were rumblings Donovan McNabb could lose his starting job to Rex Grossman. But now he’s getting booed at NBA games to boot?

Randy Moss did not put up the huge fantasy numbers that most expected when he went back to Minnesota. But it would be foolish to overlook the impact he had on some of his teammates. Most notably, WR Percy Harvin.
Few are buying the reasoning of Mike Shanahan in his decision to bench Donovan McNabb, which raised plenty of eyebrows at NFL Network.
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.
Who are the top fantasy quarterbacks this season? We discuss that on the NFL.com Fantasy Preview Show, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET. I’m a little skeptical of Peyton Manning this season, based on the performance of past Super Bowl losers. Take a look at this list.
Redskins safety LaRon Landry, who has had his name involved in trade talks, briefly walked out of the team’s voluntary offseason workouts, but said that he and the team are “cool” now, reports the Washington Post.

Jimmy Clausen to the 49ers? Sincere interest, or pre-draft wrangling?
