Last night's Redskins-Cowboys game was interesting. Aside from Tony Romo delivering the most heroic performance in the history of heroism (or so you'd think from listening to the analysis) by leading his team to six field goals, one of my fantasy teams held a narrow lead over an opponent that had the Cowboys defense ... right until the sack-fumble of Rex Grossman with 28 seconds left. My team is now 0-3, and I HATE fantasy football.
And now, on to the fantasy football news:
- Eagles QB Michael Vick's bruised right hand has him iffy for this week's game against the 49ers. Vick's owners should be relieved that earlier reports of a broken hand were incorrect, but it sounds like we're in for another week of waiting on the QB's status. Eagles head coach isn't making it easy to pick up a replacement for Vick, as he won't say if Vince Young or rookie Mike Kafka will start if Vick can't play.
- Titans WR Kenny Britt is done for the season with torn ligaments in his knee. Nate Washington, who is currently owned in just 11.1 percent of FOXSports.com leagues, becomes the Titans' lead wideout, and while he's not as good as Britt, he should see plenty of targets moving forward. Washington already has 21 receptions for 258 yards and a touchdowns, so it's not like he hasn't been busy already.
- 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday that RB Frank Gore (ankle) will be "good to go" this week against the Eagles. I know that Gore has struggled and his line hasn't been good, but I see him as a great buy-low target right now.
- The Texans seem to think that RB Arian Foster (hamstring) will return to action this week. Just don't expect him to carry the full load right away - Ben Tate has been too good.
- Bengals RB Cedric Benson will appeal his three-game suspension today. I'm guessing the commissioner is going to win this one, giving Bernard Scott some fantasy value for a few weeks.
- There were some reports that Cowboys RB Felix Jones re-injured his shoulder in last night's game, but I haven't seen any news on it this morning. Stay tuned.
- Colts owner Jim Irsay waffled yesterday on whether or not Peyton Manning is out for the season. You don't still own Manning, do you?
- Rams QB Sam Bradford has a sprained toe, but doesn't seem to be in danger of missing any time.
- Chargers TE Antonio Gates will see a foot specialist today, and this story reports that his prognosis could range from returning this week to missing at least a handful more games. Good grief.
- Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (hamstring) says he's sure that he'll be back in action this week after missing Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
- Ravens PK Billy Cundiff bruised his knee on Sunday, but there hasn't been any word on his status yet. We should know more today.
- It sounds like Peyton Hillis will be fully recovered from his case of strep throat before this week's game, but don't expect Montario Hardesty to just disappear. Hardesty was going to get more involved during Week 3 anyway, so let's see how this one develops. Don't panic, Hillis owners.
- Look for Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno to be back on the field this week. Moreno was active in Week 3, but the team planned to use him only in case of emergency. It would have been nice if they told us that when activating him. Inconsiderate jerks.
- The Giants are hoping, and probably expecting, WR Mario Manningham to be cleared to practice this week after missing Sunday's game with a concussion.
- Packers RB Ryan Grant suffered a bruised kidney against the Bears on Sunday, and his status for Week 4 is TBD.
- The Colts aren't sure if Curtis Painter or Kerry Collins (possible concussion) will start against the Bucs on Monday. The choice probably won't affect the receivers much either way.
- Wait a minute - the Vikings think Donovan McNabb has been inaccurate? NO WAY!
- The Raiders hope to get WR Jacoby Ford (hamstring) back this week. Ford could be pretty good, folks. If you're looking for a free-agent wide receiver to help you down the road, he's not a bad choice.
- Redskins TE Chris Cooley showed last night that he hasn't been buried, with four catches for 41 yards and a couple of short-yardage carries. If he's going to get some handoffs every game, it'll make him more interesting. Let's see if it happens again before getting too excited, though.
- Joel Beall will be in the FOXSports.com fantasy chat room today at 3 p.m. ET, and I'll make my regular appearance on Thursday at the same time. Come on by with your questions, OK?
- Need a question answered elsewhere this week by yours truly? Post it on my Facebook page. You have to like me first, though.
See you back here later this morning with a baseball post, and again on Friday with a football entry.
