Montez Sweat, out at least 1 month

Brutal blow to Washington’s defense. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, This Wednesday it was confirmed that the edge rusher, Montez Sweat, will miss a minimum of 1 month of action due to a broken jaw suffered last Sunday in the loss to the Broncos. The injury will not require surgery, but Sweat, in addition to having to modify his diet, cannot have physical contact for a month, so he will miss the games against the Buccaneers, Panthers and Seahawks.

According this video found by Sam Fortier from The Washington Post, Sweat hurt his jaw last Sunday in the middle of the fourth quarter on a 3 & 8 play while blocking LG Dalton Risner. He could even be seen holding the side of his face after the play was concluded, but it was not until further examinations were carried out that he discovered the fracture.

Sweat, a graduate of Mississippi State, came to the WFT as a first-round pick in 2019, and has never missed a single game in his career, having played all 40 possible, all as a starter. In addition, since then he has registered a total of 114 total tackles and 20 sacks, becoming a cornerstone of the disappointing Washington defense we have seen this season. How will this loss affect those led by Ron Rivera?

Arizona places AJ Green in the COVID-19 Reserve

Bad news for the Cardinals, who confirmed on Wednesday that they placed WR AJ Green in the COVID-19 Reserve, which means that they most likely will not have their receiver for the Week 9 game against the 49ers. HC Kliff Kingsbury noted earlier in the season that the entire Arizona roster is vaccinated, so if true, Green will be eligible to play as soon as he throws two negative tests taken 24 hours apart.

The Cardinals also have TE Demetrius Harris in the COVID-19 Reserve, and in terms of wide receivers, their aerial arsenal will fall into the hands of DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore, Andy Isabella and Antoine Wesley, although Hopkins carries a hamstring mishap that could complicate his availability against San Francisco next Sunday.

Green, a 33-year veteran who came to the Cardinals in the previous offseason, this 2021 has become a fundamental pillar in the offense led by QB Kyler Murray, accumulating 29 receptions for 456 total yards and 3 touchdowns. Will Arizona be able to overcome this possible decline?

Baker Mayfield on Odell Beckham: “if he comes back, we’ll fix it”

The situation within the Browns organization has been somewhat tense in recent days. QB Baker Mayfield has come under fire after WR Odell Beckham Jr.’s father posted a video on his personal Instagram account last Tuesday where he blames Mayfield for the lack of production that Beckham has had this 2021. But this Wednesday, via Jake Trotter’s ESPN, the Cleveland quarterback finally spoke out on the matter:

“I cannot speculate exactly on whose name he was speaking. I think a lot of this comes from a parent’s perspective. You want your child to be successful. Can’t blame him for that. I want Odell to be successful. That’s where we were, or so I thought, “said Mayfield, adding that the video didn’t hurt him but” he was probably just as shocked as all of you. “

In addition, he was later also questioned as to whether or not he would accept an eventual apology from Beckham, to which he replied: “I think any kind of conversation would be very useful. If it comes back, we’ll fix it. I can put my ego aside ”.

However, coupled with the QB-WR relationship, this time the situation escalates further. This Wednesday Beckham appeared for the Browns practice but HC Kevin Stefanski did not let him train, practically granting him a day off. In addition, Stefanski himself, GM Andrew Berry and Beckham’s representatives had a meeting to define the future of the eighth-year receiver, so more information should come out in the next few days. Will we still see Beckham as a member of the Browns?

Derek Carr on Henry Ruggs: “He needs people to love him right now”

In more NFL news, this week the attention within the Raiders has focused on WR Henry Ruggs, who was involved in a major road accident that left one victim. However, while more details of the incident continue to be revealed, the team’s quarterback, Derek Carr, showed solidarity and understanding with the situation that Ruggs is going through; This is how he revealed it in an emotional press conference this Wednesday:

“I wish I could have done something,” Carr commented. “Nobody ever wants to see this, whether he’s a football player or not. You never want something like this to happen. My heart goes first to the families that are involved. There are things that happen in life that we have no control over, but you wish we did. I have a thousand questions that I wish I could ask, but I don’t have those opportunities. I don’t understand everything or why certain things happen. I have always trusted that the basis of who I am is my faith. “

“With what they told us, I just didn’t know if we could [contactar a Ruggs, así que] we have not communicated. I will always be here for him. That will not change. I will prove it over time to him, not to anyone else. But he needs people to love him right now. You are probably feeling a certain way about yourself right now, and you need to be loved. If no one else does, I’ll do it, “concluded Carr.

The comments come just hours after a new report from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department that Ruggs had a blood alcohol concentration twice the legal limit while driving his Corvette at 256 kilometers per hour for just two seconds. prior to the crash that killed the 23-year-old driver of the other car along with her dog.

Now, under Nevada law, Ruggs faces a possible sentence ranging from 2 to 20 years for which, most likely, he will never play football again in his life. What do you think about the statements issued by Carr?
