This kind of stuff concerns me, the league wants to protect the players and then doesn’t suspend them for dirty hits. Now another player is out with a possible concussion.

Star Tribune — Wild right winger Antti Miettinen has been sidelined with what the team now believes may be a concussion stemming from a high hit he took Monday from Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown.

Miettinen, who has been complaining of headaches and vision problems, was to be examined by a neurologist Friday after coach Todd Richards said Wild doctors ruled out an inner-ear infection.

Brown was assessed a 5-minute major and game misconduct for an “illegal check to the head,” although he avoided further discipline from the NHL.

That surprised Richards, who called Brown’s hit “dirty.”

“You’ve got to protect the players,” Richards said. “To me, it’s a blindside hit.”

It’s Halloween weekend, and Fantasy Football owners around the country are dealing with their own individual scares (What could be more scary than seeing your top fantasy producer going down with an injury?).

Players around the league are dealing with the injury bug as October 31 rolls around, so what better place to check up on the latest updates?

And remember, for all those owners who like to simply skim through an article, be sure to note the bold and italicized portion of each description, as this note shows the players’ status for the upcoming week.

Out of last week’s sleeper picks, Matt Cassel (193 passing yds, 2TD) and Patrick Crayton (7 rec, 82 yds.) came through with solid performances. If you went with Chris Ivory and Justin Forsett, I apologize.

This week we have another four sleepers candidates as well as four players who should underperform based on matchups.

Busts

Sam Bradford, QB Rams – For the second game in a row, Bradford managed to avoid throwing an interception. Of course, he only threw 26 times for a meager 126 yards; these numbers were saved by a pair of touchdown passes. But there will be no saving against the Carolina Panthers and their fourth ranked pass defense (182.5 YPG). Bradford is going to be forced to throw even when the opportunity isn’t perfect since RB Steven Jackson is coming off finger surgery and should have a lighter workload…

Ho Hum, that is how I would describe this evening game between two teams that are supposed to be bitter rivals that hate each other. This is one of those series that traditionally is supposed to look like the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s. Unfortunately; this game was really clean, almost boring and there were only four penalties in the entire game.

The part that is even more unbelievable was that the UND Fighting Sioux ended up getting three power play and Denver only got one power play through sixty minutes of hockey. I suppose the Denver head coach George Gwozdecky will call his coffee drinking buddy WCHA commissioner Bruce McLeod and lobby for a few more power plays tomorrow night; of course I am kidding but it does seem odd that this game wasn’t a parade to the penalty box with at least three scrums. There wasn’t any international choking signs, dances on the dasher or walks across the ice. In fact the DU coach never left the bench to enter the playing surface. There wasn’t even a conference between the Refs and the DU coach at the DU bench.

Each week we share insights, analysis, and opinions of the week’s transactions. To see previous posts, click here and start working back. 

Mathias Kiwanuka of the Giants

The biggest name to cross the transactions wire this week was Giants DE Mathias Kiwanuka, who was officially ruled out for the season with a herniated disc in his neck. Kiwanuka had four sacks in the first four games playing as a defensive end this season before his injury, and the former first-round pick has also played outside linebacker in the past. That kind of versatility has made him especially valuable to Big Blue, and it may make him an attractive option to 3-4 defenses in free agency this offseason. Luckily for the Giants, they can use rookie Jason Pierre-Paul as the primary backup to starting DEs Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck, which should allow the front four to remain a strength for perhaps the NFC’s best team.

Wow! I found this article in the Denver Post this morning when I was conducting a visual recon of the opposition’s newspaper and I must say; that is a lot of money.

The Denver Post — Despite having one of the country’s premier hockey programs, the University of Denver athletic department is operating on an annual budget deficit of more than $7 million. The massive shortfall is the result of the school’s pledge to remain in NCAA Division I in all sports, as well as its effort to upgrade its struggling men’s basketball program.

Athletic director Peg Bradley-Doppes said there has been no discussion about Denver returning to Division II in its core sports.
