Wes Welker Injury Update – Knee Injury

Filed under Football

Wes Welker, the possession receiver for the New England Patriots, missed the team’s Week 2 game against the New York Jets. Although the team hasn’t released much information, Welker’s absence has been blamed on a knee injury. For Week 3, Welker apparently thinks he will play — according to a report on ESPN.com. That said, Welker didn’t practice on Wednesday, which is a definite sign that he’s not completely healthy. If he doesn’t get back on the practice field on Thursday or Friday, you can expect him to miss at least another game. Welker has quickly become a very important player for the Patriots. In 2007, he had 112 catches for 1,175 yards and eight touchdowns. Last year, Welker had... [Read more]

Brad Lidge Blows Another Save

After a perfect season last year, Philadelphia Phillies closer Brad Lidge has come crashing down to earth. On Wednesday against the Florida Marlins, Lidge blew another save and picked up another loss. At this point, one has to wonder how much longer the Phillies can keep using Lidge as the team’s closer. Last season, Lidge was 2-0 with a 1.95 ERA and was a perfect 41-for-41 in save opportunities. This year has been totally different. He’s 0-8 with a 7.48 ERA and has blown 11 save chances out of 42. Heading into the 9th inning with a 6-5 lead, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel put Lidge in to close the game. A couple minutes later, Jorge Cantu tied the game with a single and then Brett Carroll won the game with another... [Read more]

Raymond Felton Re-signs with the Bobcats

Raymond Felton entered this summer wanting to land a long-term deal. However, due to his restricted status and the fact that the Charlotte Bobcats don’t have much money to spend, he had to settle for re-signing with the Bobcats for the qualifying offer. According to reports, the deal is worth $5.5 million over one season. Last season, the 25-year-old Felton averaged 14.2 points, 6.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 37.6 minutes per game. He played in all 82 games and shot 40.8% from the field, 28.5% from three-point range and 80.5% from the free throw line. Although Felton is talented, there’s question as to whether the Bobcats view him as their long-term answer at point guard. He lacks true point guard instincts and... [Read more]

Marion Barber Injury Update – Strained Quad

If you watched the Dallas Cowboys take on the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football, you undoubtedly saw Cowboys running back Marion Barber go down with an injury. Right away it appeared as if Barber had injured his left quadriceps. It has now been confirmed that Barber sustained a strained quad muscle. Barber’s injury was confirmed via an MRI on Monday. While the Cowboys are saying that Barber is receiving treatment in an attempt to play this weekend against the Carolina Panthers, many media reports indicate that Barber will likely have to miss at least one game. If the Cowboys want to play it safe, they may keep Barber out of action for the next three games so that they can take advantage of their Week 6 bye. Over... [Read more]

Zack Greinke AL Cy Young Award Favorite?

After another stellar outing for Zack Greinke of the Kansas City Royals, it’s starting to look more and more like he’s the favorite for the AL Cy Young Award. He was great to start the season, then had a relatively average stretch but Greinke has been masterful down the stretch of the season. Against the Boston Red Sox on Monday, Greinke went six scoreless innings to pick up his 15th win of the year. He struck out five batters and lowered his ERA on the season to 2.08. In his last five starts, Greinke has been awesome. During that stretch, he has pitched 35 innings and has only allowed one earned run and only 18 hits. In September alone, he has an ERA of 0.45. Monday’s performance allowed the Royals to beat... [Read more]
