Sark says Hudson “Wild” Card will start at QB Saturday against Louisiana, although Casey Thompson will get some PT. Sark says he will “reevaluate” after Week One. Sounds reasonable to me.
Au Jus was gonna clobber Tulane anyway. But now the Soonists will have the home field advantage. That game has been moved from New Orleans to Norman because of Ida.
Saints? Damn, they know the drill if anyone does. They’re practicing in Dallas right now. They’re supposed to open the season at home September 12 against the Packers. Superdome is reportedly in pretty good shape. “Dark” is the problem. I’ll bet you a cheeseburger that game gets moved.
Fully vaxxed NFL players will now get tested every seven days instead of every 14. The NFLPA signed off on that yesterday.
But Carson Wentz…CARSON WENTZ?…is now on the Colts’ COVID reserve list? He had a “close contact” with someone who tested positive. Wentz will be out at least five days. That means, under NFL protocol, that Wentz is unvaccinated. That’s quarterback malpractice. That’s bullshit. And that goes for Kirk Cousins in Minnesota, too.
Trey Lance has a finger injury that will keep him out about a week. That injured digit is the best thing Jimmy G. has going for him.
Finally, there is no doubt there is mutual interest between the Dolphins and Deshaun Watson. No doubt. But Miami coach Brian Flores danced the dance yesterday when he said he only wants players of “high character.” To date, 22 women have not given Watson a ringing endorsement.
