Iowa State’s Joel Lanning played true iron man football in the Cyclones’ upset of Oklahoma on Saturday.
With starting quarterback Jacob Park having taken a leave of absence for “personal health issues,” Lanning rotated in at quarterback behind Kyle Kempt while also continuing to NFL Jerseys Paypal play linebacker.
Sammy Watkins, Los Angeles Rams, illness, 4:05 p.m. ET: Nothing to see here. Watkins missed practice Wednesday with an illness, but fully practiced Thursday and Friday. Off the pregame Wholesale NHL Jerseys injury report, Watkins is expected to play against the Seahawks.
He has elevated himself to a weekly QB2 option in two-quarterback leagues and in fact a borderline QB1, thanks in large part to significant improvements this season in terms of yards per attempt (7.7, up from 6.2 during his rookie season) and interception rate (1.7 percent, down from 2.3).
On Friday, the team did not hold a formal practice, but Montgomery was again listed as a limited participant. His doubtful tag is not surprising given the leap from very limited practice participation to full competition, especially when dealing with an injury as painful as rib fractures. Expect Montgomery to sit this week out. Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones will likely each see work in his place.
“It’s an evaluation game. I thought the way [Tocchet] used his bench was really effective for trying to understand players in different positions,” Chayka said. “I think 5-on-5, we outplayed them. Obviously, we took some penalties. We know they’re trying to crack down on slashing, and we just can’t do it, so we cleaned that up, and some of that is just a learning thing where it’s new to slashing rules. We learned from our mistakes. I think our young guys will, and we’ll just keep evolving, so I was happy.”
