Isaiah Rodgers 101 yard kickoff return for the Colts. If I find a video of it I'll post it.

Panthers activated former UMass receiver Marken Michel, older brother of Sony, from the practice squad as a Covid-19 replacement for Sunday against New Orleans.
Let's see if he plays. Our other 2 wide receivers haven't exactly been overworked.

Andy had one catch for seven yards yesterday. I spotted him on the field quite a bit for the Cards' tying and winning drives, but nothing tossed his way. And he had a tackle. On an interception, maybe?

I did see Andy draw double coverage on a deep crossing route which allowed a 43-yard gain on an open crossing route heading the other direction underneath. 6:12 mark here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bywrMfiALmU
(the replay from the end zone showed the play open up)

Watching the week before, he is playing a lot it seems. Hopefully they start to look his way more often.

COVID-19 replacements for the #Panthers: G Mike Horton, DB Natrell Jamerson and WR
Marken Michel. All game-day moves.
Let's hope he sees the field and sees a few passes come his way.

@TajaeSharpe will be looking for a new home after being waived by the Vikings today.
Minnesota signed Sharpe to a one-year contract this off-season.
Not a good weekend for our guys. Isabella was a healthy scratch yesterday. I've heard rumors that the Pats need receivers. :D

Isabella would be a nice addition to the list of former Minutemen who played for the Football Giants.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

Great landing spot for Tajae.

The #Chiefs are expected to sign former #Vikings WR Tajae Sharpe to their practice squad, source said. He has to go through COVID-19 protocols first. A possible late-season or playoff elevation when he learns the playbook.
