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.
The leg injury to Washington quarterback, Alex Smith, was a gruesome one. He has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a fractured fibula and tibia. The compound leg fracture will be a difficult one to return by Week 1 of the 2019 season. The nasty injury occurred in the third quarter of the loss to Houston. Veteran journeyman Colt McCoy entered the game and was underwhelming. He will close out the year as Washington's starting quarterback. Smith will turn 35 next offseason. With a one-game lead over Dallas, Washington will rely on McCoy to carry the playoff hopes down the stretch.
The Miami Dolphins have a quarterback quandary. Brock Osweiler is not playing well but the team is surprisingly in the playoff chase. The other quarterback is Ryan Tannehill who is coming off a nasty shoulder injury. Last week, coach Adam Gase said Tannehill threw without pain for the first time. The coach went on to say, "It seemed like it went well … It’s not like he’s out there throwing 60-yard throws. They have a progression of how they want to do it. They said it was a good first step and he felt good. So that’s a positive." Miami needs Tannehill healthy - and in the lineup - to have a prayer for the playoffs. This is a pivotal time for the quarterback as the team can move on from him after the season, so he needs to show the world that the shoulder is good.
