Roughing the Quarterback

The 2009 season has ended a little early for both Brady Quinn and Trent Edwards. The Cleveland Browns put Quinn on injured reserve Tuesday with a foot injury, meaning Derek Anderson (two TDs, nine INTs, 36.2 passer rating) will start Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. The Browns have covered their last five games in a row with Quinn at the helm; they were 3-3 ATS behind Anderson, winning just the one time against Buffalo in Week 5.

As for Edwards, an ESPN source says he’s done for the year after suffering a high ankle sprain last week versus the Patriots. The Associated Press is speculating that third-string QB Brian Brohm (formerly on Green Bay’s practice squad) will get the start Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Meanwhile, the Buffalo News reports that Bills cornerback Terrence McGee (rotator cuff) is also going on injured reserve. Lines for both these games were off the board at press time pending further developments.

Roughing the Kicker

The annual place-kicker shuffle is well underway. The Dallas Cowboys pulled the chute on Nick Folk after he missed seven of his past 11 field-goal attempts. His replacement is Shaun Suisham, a former Cowboy who was cut by Washington earlier this month. While Folk seemed to be undergoing a classic meltdown that threatened to derail the Dallas playoff train, Suisham was given a rather early hook by Washington after missing a 23-yarder in Week 13 against the New Orleans Saints, who went on to win 33-30 in overtime. Suisham is still 18-of-21 on field goals this year compared to 18-of-28 for Folk. Consider this an upgrade as the Cowboys prepare to face the aforementioned Redskins on Sunday Night Football. Check the NFL lines for the latest on this matchup.

Speaking of the Saints, they finally decided to cut John Carney after a respectable 13-of-17 performance in relief of Garrett Hartley, who started the season with a four-game suspension and didn’t make his 2009 debut until that Week 13 contest. Hartley booted the game-winning field goal against Washington and has made seven of eight, the only miss coming from 58 yards out. He should be busy Sunday against the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers with coach Sean Payton telling the New Orleans Times-Picayune that he won’t be resting his starters.

Are You Receiving?

Both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Kansas City Chiefs are a little lighter in the wideout department this week. The Steelers put the invisible Limas Sweed (one catch in 2009) on the injured reserve/non-football list with a mysterious undisclosed illness, and replaced him with 38-year-old free agent Joey Galloway, most recently with New England. Perhaps more importantly, long snapper Greg Warren blew out his right knee on the last play of that dramatic 37-36 win over Green Bay and will not be back this year. Jared Retkofsky, last seen playing in the UFL, is Warren’s replacement, as he was during Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl run. The Steelers are staring down elimination this week against the visiting Baltimore Ravens (+3) with live betting available for every play.

The Chiefs made the more puzzling move of waiving WR Mark Bradley (24 catches, two TDs) on Tuesday. Bradley started six games for Kansas City and also spent some time on special teams, handling seven kick-offs and a pair of punts. The Chiefs decided they could do without the impending free agent as they get ready for their Sunday afternoon tilt with the Cincinnati Bengals. Cincinnati is 1-4 ATS in the last five games and still mourning the death of WR Chris Henry after he fell out of the back of a pick-up truck during what police are calling a domestic dispute. The Bengals are nonetheless favored by 14 points with a total of 40.

    The Cowboys better hope that they do need to win a game with a field goal, as I have little confidence in a kicker (Suisham) that already cost another team at least two games.
