Here are some random bits of news from week 3:
- Pro Football Talk discusses the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers making a change at offensive coordinator after another terrible performance against the Kansas City Chiefs.
- Detroit Lions rookie running back Jahvid Best left Sunday’s game after the first quarter with a toe injury and was unable to return to the game. There will be an MRI scheduled for Monday. Not a good sign given that Best has been one of the teams only bright spots of their 0-3 start.
- Adam Schefter reports that the New Orleans Saints have already reached out to John Carney and will bring him in to help solidify their kicking game after Garrett Hartley’s latest struggles.
- Bad news for the St Louis Rams after a huge win against the Washington Redskins, Steven Jackson suffered a strained groin during the game. The Rams were reported to have already expressed interest in free-agent running back Larry Johnson but ESPN’s Chris Mortensen has since downplayed the team’s interest in Johnson and mentions that they are considering other options. An MRI is scheduled for Monday.
- Patrick Crayton expressed his frustrations to NBC Sports regarding the Chargers league-worst special teams unit. The Chargers fought their way back into the game mid-way through the fourth quarter only to let Leon Washington return his second kickoff for a touchdown. It’s safe to say that there may be some coaches on the hot-seat down in San Diego.
- ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the NFL and NFLPA will sit down to discuss the NFL expanding to a 17 0r 18 game schedule and rookie contracts. Chris Mortensen’s adds that they will also discuss the first-ever proposal that would require teams contribute to pensions as part of the NFLPA’s Legacy Fund Proposal.
