We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
Last Tuesday, the worry over Andrew Luck was magnified by a notable NFL media member. While we have been writing about Luck’s lack of training camp participation for weeks, his absence reached national attention last week. We appreciate Footballguys’ own Dr. Jene Bramel and his knowledge of football injuries. Dr. Bramel tweeted about the situation, “But -- unless there's more to the story than Colts/Luck letting on -- hard to see how anyone could make judgment on inseason PUP today.” Basically, it is way too early to get excited about Luck missing time at the beginning of the season. Beat reporter Zak Keefer later tweeted, “1 thing to stress again about Luck: There are SIX weeks until regular season starts. He's begun the throwing part of his rehab. Lot of time.” Then, late last week, Colts General Manager Chris Ballard was adamant that his quarterback will be activated from active/PUP before Week 1.
