Notes: Kilgore likely out for season with ankle injury

Notes: Kilgore likely out for season with ankle injury

DENVER – The injuries just keep on coming. On Sunday, the already shorthanded 49ers sustained another key injury when center Daniel Kilgore was carted off the field with his left leg in an air cast in their 42-17 loss to the Broncos. Kilgore immediately beckoned for medical assistance after linebacker Brandon Marshall crashed into the side of his leg at the end of a third-quarter run by Frank Gore. Jim Harbaugh said Kilgore probably sustained a broken ankle, which would be a season-ending injury. On Sunday, Dillon Farrell, an undrafted rookie from New Mexico, replaced Kilgore. However, the...

Which Giant would you most like to see try the salsa dance?

Which Giant would you most like to see try the salsa dance?

Some offensive players plan to honor Cruz by using his dance if they score a touchdown. Victor Cruz said Friday that it is "pretty humbling" that some of his New York Giants teammates say they plan to salsa dance in his honor if they are fortunate enough to score a touchdown Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. That begs the question -- which of Cruz's teammates would you most like to see try the salsa? Let's keep this just to the offensive players. My guess? The best salsa would likely come from Odell Beckham or Rueben Randle. My dark-horse candidate? Tight end Larry Donnell, an athletic...

Detroit Lions — Calvin Johnson, Eric Ebron out; Saints' Jimmy Graham active

DETROIT — Calvin Johnson will not play today against the Saints. The Detroit Lions wide receiver had been listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report. This is the second straight game Johnson has missed with an ankle sprain. The Lions’ offense will also be without tight end Eric Ebron who tweaked a hamstring in Wednesday’s practice and didn’t practice on Thursday and Friday. He was doubtful for the game. Tight end Jordan Thompson was signed from the practice squad to fill in at tight end where Joe Fauria (ankle) remains out. Brandon Pettigrew said Thompson, who will be...
Detroit Lions — Five standouts in win over New Orleans Saints

Detroit Lions — Five standouts in win over New Orleans Saints

It was definitely a team win for the Detroit Lions who beat the New Orleans Saints 24-23 on Sunday at Ford Field. Here are five Lions who stood out: 1. Golden Tate had career highs with 10 catches and 154 receiving yards. His 73-yard touchdown is his second longest in his career. That touchdown was the catalyst that gave the Lions a chance to win late in the game. PHOTOS FROM WIN OVER SAINTS 2. Corey Fuller’s first-ever touchdown catch was the game winner. He said he had the easy part, but that took some work to get both feet down. He had just three catches but all were...

Buccaneers considering a Vincent Jackson trade

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could trade their best offensive player, if the compensation is right. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been receiving calls for a possible Vincent Jackson trade, and it looks like the Bucs are seriously considering the possibility of moving their top wide receiver. That is what Ian Rapoport is reporting. Who else could be traded? I’m told #Bucs are getting tons of calls on WR Vincent Jackson. TB loves him as a player, but considers everything — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 19, 2014 At 1-5 the Bucs are basically done for this season, and getting a solid...

Peter Konz Exits Game With Injury, James Stone In At Center

The Falcons are facing a potentially grim situation at center. Peter Konz came up holding his left leg and has exited the game, giving us more bad news in a season that has been full to the brim of it. The cart's being brought to the Falcons bench for Konz #ATLvsBAL — Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams) October 19, 2014 If Konz is out for the game, and it appears he is, the Falcons are down to a single healthy center in James Stone. Harland Gunn can play center, but he is inactive today, so we have to hope and pray that Stone can hang in there. We'll have to hope this injury isn't a serious...
