Raiders lose LaMarr Woodley for the year

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that defensive end LaMarr Woodley suffered a torn biceps muscle in Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source. His season is believed to be over.

The Oakland Raiders gave Woodley a two-year, $12 million contract in March, teaming him with Justin Tuck on a new-look defensive line. Woodley had not made an impact prior to Sunday’s injury, registering just five tackles and no sacks in six games.

Titans are set to start rookie QB Zach Mettenberger

The Tennessee Titans plan to start rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger against the Texans on Sunday, according to The Tennessean.

On Monday, coach Ken Whisenhunt said the plan was for Locker to regain his place in the starting lineup when healthy. But with the Titans having lost five of their last six games and facing steep odds to make the playoffs, the coach apparently had a change of heart.

I like this move too, the former LSU quarterback is the teams future. Great move by coach.

Bill Polian could be headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced in August that they would be adding a special “contributor” category to the voting process, starting with next year’s Hall of Fame Class.

Former general managers Bill Polian and Ron Wolf were both chosen Wednesday as finalists for the Hall’s Class of 2015. They will need 80 percent of the vote from voters on January 31.

Polian is well known for building up three different franchises as a personnel chief: The 90’s Buffalo Bills, the expansion Carolina Panthers, and the Indianapolis Colts during most of the Peyton Manning era. Polian’s sometimes contentious relationship with the media didn’t hurt him in the process.

“Wow! I don’t know what to say. I’m speechless,” Polian said Wednesday via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Charean Williams.

This would be huge for Polian, who led the Buffalo Bills to four straight Super Bowl appearances.

NFL Draft Diamonds Week 8 FanDuel Value Plays – TE

Now that NFL Draft Diamonds and FanDuel have teamed up, we want to bring you to top value plays for the skill positions. We will finish at the Tight End position. We will give you three levels of players, who we believe will have a big week.

Dwayne Allen – Indianapolis Colts – $6,000

Allen has been playing very good and this week he should have a great game against Pittsburgh. Allen told media this week that he’s not even playing to have his skill level.

Mid Price

Zach Ertz – Philadelphia Eagles – $5,400

Ertz has become a very good target for Nick Foles. Last week the Eagles were on a bye and were able to get healthy. Foles will have more time this week so expect Ertz to have a good performance.

Low Price

Heath Miller – Pittsburgh Steelers – $4,900

Miller has been off and on this year, but he is Big Ben’s security blanket. I expect him to be targeted at least 8 times this week on check downs. He will be a good play.
