Vincent Jackson To Play Through Fracture In His Wrist

As if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could not get any worse, the team has announced that Vincent Jackson has a small fracture in his wrist, however he plans to play through it. Jackson did not have any kind of chemistry with QB Josh McCown, but McCown is out for week 4, so Mike Glennon will get the start. Hopefully Jackson can play through it and make something happen with Glennon under center. Through 3 games, Jackson has just 10 catches for 102 yards and 1 touchdown.

Panthers Lose Both Jonathan Stewart & Mike Tolbert on SNF

Just like the San Diego Chargers, the Carolina Panthers have had their running backs banged up early on in the season. DeAngelo Williams has missed the last two games with a thigh injury and both Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert were injured on Sunday Night Football.

Mike Tolbert is out indefinately with a hairline fracture in his leg, and now Jonathan Stewart could miss up to a month thanks to a knee sprain.

There is a good chance Williams returns for the Panthers in week 4, which would make him a borderline must start as he'll be the workhorse in the backfield. However Darrin Reaves could be worth picking up because he could see some playing time as well.

Danny Woodhead Out For Season - Fractured Fibula and Ankle

The San Diego Chargers suffered another blow to their running backs as they learned Danny Woodhead will be out for the remainder of the season with a fractured fibula and ankle. The team is already without Ryan Mathews who will likely be out another month with a knee injury. Donald Brown will become the teams workhorse over the next 3-4 games with Branden Oliver getting some work on passing downs. Philip Rivers will really miss Woodhead as he had such a large role in the passing game.
