Yes. Yes, I am.
I’m in a fantasy league this year. I have done this in the past, but had stopped doing it because I always lost miserably. Not that I had bad players, but that I would forget to pay attention to who was on a bye week or if someone was injured.
So I love the Eagles. But I don’t “hate” any team. A lot of people are one way and only one way. I like the game of football. Eagles are my top team, but I won’t bash another team unless I’m purposefully being a pain in someone’s arse.
So here is fantasy and real world news you might need to know.
Eagles players Kolb and Stewart suffered injuries during the team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. They both left the game with concussions. There is controversy because their trainers let them keep playing even after the concussion happened because they didn’t show signs right away of the damage. Supposedly, the trainers asked the right questions, got all the right answers, sent both back into a game even after both had displayed, for a national audience to see, evidence of head trauma.
Well, latest news says both players have failed the concussion test today meaning they are still on the injured list.
Head coach Andy Reid said backup quarterback Michael Vick, who took over for Kolb during the second half on Sunday, will take practice snaps with the first team on Wednesday and Thursday.
There has been no official word yet from the Eagles about Kolb’s status. He is listed as day-to-day.
Another round of testing is scheduled for Friday with an independent specialist, as required by NFL regulations.
In other Eagles injury news, center Jamaal Jackson and fullback Leonard Weaver are done for the season.
