Chiefs Expect Spencer Ware To Miss Season

Published

on

The Kansas City Chiefs are expecting to lose running back Spencer Ware for the season after the rusher suffered a torn PCL along with other damage.

Ware’s injury occurred in Friday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Ware will get a second opinion, but the injury is thought to be season-ending and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Saturday that Ware also suffered LCL damage.

Rapoport reported on Sunday that Kansas City is holding out hope that Ware can be placed on injured reserve/designated to return.

Ware was expected to have a much bigger year with the team’s renewed dedication to running the ball and after a breakout season in 2016 when Ware rushed for career-high 921 yards.

Ware’s injury thrusts Kareem Hunt into the starting role.

Broncos’ John Elway Says Team Could Look for New Backup Quarterback

Published

on

Denver Broncos president John Elway isn’t too thrilled with the quarterback depth chart, despite the recent promotion of Chad Kelly to the #2 spot behind starter Case Keenum, and could be in the market for a new backup signal caller.

“I’m not going to tell you we’re definitely going to stand pat, but I’m not telling you we’re going (in) that direction, either,” Elway said, during an appearance on 103.5 The Fox (h/t Associated Press).

Kelly’s recent performance, in which he threw for 177 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings, has seen him leapfrog former 2016 1st round pick Paxton Lynch on the depth chart.

“We’ve got to have confidence that that guy that’s going to be the backup can play and win football games,” Elway said. “And so that’s why we’re still in that process of trying to see if we’ve got that guy behind Case.

“Even though Chad played very well on Saturday night—we’ll see how he does this week—but if something were to happen to Case, can he come in and continue to win football games for us?” Elway said. “That’s the big part of the evaluation process and that’s still going on.”

The Miami Dolphins are not willing to trade wide receiver DeVante Parker and the disappointing former 1st round pick is not on the trade block, according to the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero.1

The Dolphins feel that Parker, who is currently out with a broken finger, has had a solid training camp, but reports seem to contradict that assessment and are still of the the belief that Parker can turn into the player they thought he was going to be when they drafted him in the first round a few years ago.

Parker tallied 57 catches for 670 yards and one touchdown last season and is expected to be back in time for the Dolphins’ season opener.

The New York Jets are willing to trade quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for the right price, according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta.

Despite the willingness, there are members of the Jets front office that aren’t exactly sold on the idea of moving Bridgewater, who is projected to the be the backup to either rookie signal caller Sam Darnold and veteran Josh McCown.

Bridgewater doesn’t seem to fit in the long term plans for the team, especially because he is currently operating on a one-year deal.
