Daniel Jones – QB, New York Giants
Early in the third quarter at Cincinnati, Daniel Jones injured his hamstring. Jones scrambled for seven yards, noticed something was wrong, and went out of bounds for examination.
He did come back to play for another series, then took himself out of the game after he threw a dart to nowhere. He finished with 16/27/213 yards, plus 6 carries for 19 yards.
An MRI is pending and he may miss next Sunday’s matchup in Seattle. Colt McCoy stepped in to finalize the winning matchup against the depleted Bengals.
DJ Moore – WR, Carolina Panthers
In a back and forth contest against the Minnesota Vikings, the Panthers were looking to steal a victory in the final minutes of the game. At 3rd and goal, with just under 2 minutes left, DJ Moore landed awkwardly in the end zone attempting to catch a touchdown pass.
Nursing his right leg, he required assistance to get off the field. It was anything but easy for him as he finished with 4 catches and 61 yards (targeted 9 times).
Carolina has a bye week next week, so he could be set to start in two weeks at home against the Denver Broncos.
Josh Jacobs – RB, Las Vegas Raiders
In a game of high hopes and lofty expectations for the Las Vegas Raiders, the Raiders soiled themselves in Atlanta.
Josh Jacobs, a tough and formidable running back out of Alabama, had his second-worst performance of the season – 7 carries, 27 yards, and 3 receptions for 17 yards plus 1 fumble – before being pulled for an ankle injury at the end of the third quarter when the score was 30 to 6.
Devontae Booker carried the football in his place as the Raiders were forced to finish the game in shame. The silver lining for the Raiders is that after this, they fly to New York to play the hapless NY Jets. A victory there could once again remind them that they are a playoff contender and that this was the Raider team that beat the Kansas City Chiefs in K.C.
