Nolan Carroll was taken off kick returns, and with Josh Huff injured Chris Polk was given an opportunity. With a strong initial performance he may have latched onto the kick return job now.

Week 8: at Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. LeSean McCoy had his first 100+ yards rushing performance of the season against the stone-cold Giants during Week 6 - 22/149/0 rushing and 2/5/0 receiving made his fantasy owners feel good about the direction McCoy is heading during the second 1/4 of the season. His sidekick Darren Sproles had 7/39/1 rushing during the contest, but didn't reel in any of his four targets before exiting due to a sprained MCL in his knee. Sproles is ahead of schedule in the recovery from that injury as he comes off the Philadelphia bye week. However, he remains questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona, depending on what he shows during the practice sessions this week. Sproles was originally expected to miss 1-2 games - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News later this week to see how much Sproles is able to do in practice sessions as the weekend draws nearer. Arizona's rush D is among the top five in the nation, averaging 72.5 rushing yards allowed per game (first in this category), with four rushing scores allowed out of six games played. They held Oakland to 19/56/1 rushing last weekend and limited Washington to 17/72/0 two games back. This is a wet-blanket type of defensive front, friends. This looks like a tough matchup for McCoy (and Sproles, if he can play).
