Report: Packers promote TE Evan Baylis to active roster with Graham hurt

Photo by Quinn Harris/ It appears that Jimmy Graham’s injury is fairly significant. The Green Bay Packers are feeling a bit short-handed at the tight end position in week three. Veteran starter Jimmy Graham was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday’s injury report (which was full of estimates since the team elected to hold a walkthrough instead of a full practice), but apparently the groin injury that landed him there is somewhat serious. It is serious enough for the Packers to bring another tight end on to the roster. According to Packersnews.com’s Jim Owczarski, the Packers...

Arizona Cardinals Wednesday injury report shows the Cardinals are a bit banged up heading into Sunday

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports With the first injury report of the week for the Arizona Cardinals, it sure seems like the team is banged up coming out of a physical game with the Baltimore Ravens.

When you look at the two biggest names it is Jordan Hicks and Corey Peters that are the concerns.

Burning Falcons Questions, Week 3: Can the team be more consistent against the AFC?

Now they can focus their energies on their first AFC opponent of the year, the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have had a bizarre year so far, seeing franchise quarterback Andrew Luck stepping away from the game to tend to his health and having backup QB Jacoby Brissett assume the position. Sunday, they could also be without budding star linebacker Darius Leonard (in the concussion protocol) and starting cornerback Pierre Desir (nursing a...
