Washington’s secondary took a hit Sunday afternoon when Josh Norman injured himself defending a pass against the Detroit Lions.
Norman was one-on-one with Lions wide Khari Lee Jersey receiver Marvin Jones when the two went up for a ball, and Norman appeared to come down on his shoulder, between Jones’ helmet and the turf. The team would say that Norman was being evaluated for a possible concussion
The previous record holder, Mike Vanderjagt established the high mark while also with the Colts. Vanderjagt’s streak was broken when he missed a 48-yard attempt against the New England Patriots on the Monday Night Football opener in 2004. The Colts lost that game, 27-24.
Vinatieri is in his 21st NFL season, and at 43, he is the oldest player in the NFL. He was named the AFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week following the Colts’ Week 5 win over the Chicago Bears. Vinatieri took a leap toward tying this record in that game, hitting five field goals to help Indianapolis secure a 29-23 victory.
This isn’t the only NFL Kyle Fuller Jersey record held by Vinatieri. He currently holds the records among placekickers for the most Super Bowl appearances with five, and the most Super Bowl wins with four. Two of those Super Bowl victories came on late-game kicks by Vinatieri. Vinatieri currently leads the NFL among active players for total points scored.
Fitzpatrick said he tried to stay focused on his job despite being benched this week.
There are conflicting reports, though. Fitzgerald inked a one-year contract extension with the Cardinals just last month and ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that the receiver has “no plans” of hanging up his cleats after the season.
Regardless of Charles’ status, Spencer Ware will once again be Kansas City’s No. 1 back Sunday. He leads the team with 78 carries, 415 rushing yards and two touchdowns this season. Charcandrick West is currently dealing with an elbow injury, but has carried the ball 15 times for 82 yards so far.
The 3-2 Chiefs are currently 14th in the league in rushing, so they could use Charles at full strength. The four-time Pro Bowler’s return to complete health has been more than a year in the making, and this setback means he’ll have to wait a while longer.
