Eagles Lose Tackle Sean Andrews For Season

Stars are dropping like flies in week one, and the joke is getting old in Philadelphia. After already losing Stewart Bradley in the offseason and seeing Donovan McNabb go down on Sunday, the Eagles take a huge blow to their offensive line.

Winston Justice is the likely candidate to step into the lineup, and if his pass protection isn't leaps and bounds better than last year Philly could be in trouble.

Jon Runyan remains on Andy Reid's speed dial.

Anthony Gonzalez to Play Again This Year

There still isn't a clear timetable on the Colt's receiver's return from a knee injury, but it's not bad enough to cost him the entire season.

It is bad enough, however, that Indy is discussing bringing outside help, as Gonzo could be out longer than three weeks, and could miss closer to six games.

It's a wait-and-see. For now, the best bets to fill-in are Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon, while Dallas Clark is also likely to see some action in the slot.

Eagles Bring in Jeff Garcia, A.J. Feeley Signs With Panthers

Even Donovan McNabb promoted this move, saying it was a "great idea." Agreed.

Garcia may be ready to see his kids spawn offspring, but he still knows the offense and can run around a bit. He's a better player than Feeley, who signed with the Panthers, and offers solid insurance if Kevin Kolb (or McNabb) should struggle on Sunday against the Saints.

McNabb's status is still up in the air, so this situation should be closely monitored throughout the week.

Carolina signing Feeley probably has more to do with Josh McCown (backup) hitting the IR, rather than Jake Delhomme's horrible start to the season. He still warrants monitoring if Delhomme continues to regress.

Pierre Thomas and Mike Bell to Compete For Carries

Good luck figuring this one out, fantasy owners.

With Reggie Bush also in the mix, the Saints are saying out loud that both Bell and Thomas will see solid action when Thomas returns to full health.

While the depth is great for the Saints offense, it could kill your fantasy mojo.
