Aaron Rodgers might not have any veterans left to block for him on the outside or any proven receivers to throw to.
Kenny Britt, Cleveland Browns, knee: Britt is a repeat of last week: He appears on the daily injury report but practiced fully throughout the week. Again, he was removed from the pregame injury report in advance of Sunday’s contest. According to ESPN.com’s Pat McManamon, Browns Cheap Game Jerseys coach Hue Jackson said Britt will get his normal allotment of plays this week.
Charles Clay, Buffalo Bills, shoulder: Clay is likely to get veteran off days intermittently as the Bills help him to manage his knee health across the season. His appearance on the injury report this week was notable for having him listed with a shoulder injury. After a limited practice Wednesday, Clay returned to full work Thursday and Friday, suggesting this is nothing serious.
Aaron Rodgers might not have any veterans left to block for him on the outside or any proven receivers to throw to. The Packers started the game without both starting tackles (Bryan Bulaga and David Bakhtiari) and then lost receiver Jordy Nelson to a quad injury and watched Randall Cobb suffer a shoulder injury. All that is going to be concerning for the Packers heading into Week 3.
The Vikings ‘shot themselves in the foot’ as the locker room put it with penalties that undid their own progress and made way for the Steelers to get ahead. Uncharacteristic of Minnesota’s disciplined defense were the offsides and pass interference calls that led to Pittsburgh moving the ball down the field, stringing together big plays and setting up the Steelers first three scoring drives. In total, the Vikings accrued 11 penalties for 131 yards.
