Giants rule DRC and Victor Cruz out-- Wed Sep 23 4:20 pm --
New York thin in the secondary
The New York Giants will be without top cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for Thursday night's game against Washington, and wide receiver Victor Cruz will have to wait at least one more week for his return to the field.(ESPN.com)
FF Today's Take:The injury to Dominick Rodgers-Cromartie leaves a defense that has been shredded the past two weeks with huge holes to fill in the secondary. Look for Kirk Cousins to test the Giants pass defense with Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon and company on Thursday night. Additionally, New York released Preston Parker this week and Victor Cruz remains sidelined leaving the door wide open for Rueben Randle to stake his claim in the passing offense behind Odell Beckham Jr.
RG3 cleared to return to the field-- Fri Sep 11 4:15 pm --
Will likely act as Kirk Cousins' backup Sunday against Miami
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been cleared to return to the field, team president Bruce Allen announced Friday. Speaking on Washington's WTOP radio, Allen said Griffin was cleared to play by an independent neurologist. Griffin suffered a concussion in the second week of the preseason. The Redskins announced in late August that Griffin had been cleared by an independent neurologist, but quickly rescinded the declaration, creating confusion about Griffin's status. Since then, exact details on Griffin's condition have been be sparse. The team has already announced it's going with Kirk Cousins as its starter for the season opener against the Miami Dolphins. Now healthy, Griffin will presumably act as Cousins' backup.(The Score)
FF Today's Take:Griffin is not worth owning in any formats. His lack of production the last two seasons combined with his proneness to injury make him irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
