- According to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star, Colts owner Jim Irsay and GM Ryan Grigson had a “heated conversation” in the locker room following Sunday’s loss to the Saints.
Peters was asked if thought he could be back for their Nov. 8 game against the Cowboys, which comes after their bye, to which he responded: “Yeah.”
Lions QB Matthew Stafford underwent X-rays on his injured hand, but added that he doesn’t think anything is wrong.
“I think it’s OK. We’ll see,” Stafford said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “I didn’t study [the X-rays], so I don’t know [what the results were]. I wouldn’t think [anything is wrong].”
Head coach Jim Caldwell explained that Stafford’s hand injury was a bit of an issue for him, but he still wanted to remain in the game.
“Obviously, [he] felt it and it was a little bit of an issue for him there for a little bit, so he’s getting it looked at obviously to see what the extent of it is,” Caldwell said. “But I asked him if he could function and he could function fine. But we couldn’t take any pressure off him running the ball. We were not effective.”
- Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan suffered a fractured a bone in his right hand during Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers.
- Andrew Walker writes that Kerrigan faces the possibility of undergoing surgery at some point in the near future.
- Walker adds that there’s a chance Kerrigan could be back for their Nov. 8 matchup against the Patriots in New England.
- Mike Garafolo reports that people around the league have said that Texans owner Bob McNair trusts HC Bill O’Brien, even after the team has gotten off to a miserable start to the season.
- According to Garafolo, there’s been a lot of speculation about GM Rick Smith’s job security, so rather than pinning this on O’Brien, there’s a chance Smith could take the blame at some point.
