That’s the latest injury news for Week 3. For the players who are very questionable, keep tabs on Adam Schefter’s Twitter account late on Saturday night, he usually posts updates every week for star players. As for the rest of these players, inactives are posted 90 minutes before kickoff of their respective games on the team’s Twitter accounts, so that’s a good place to look, as well. That’s it for me this week. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @JoeyColonna where I am extremely active in talking about Fantasy, sports, life, and what is on my mind! Thanks everyone! Good luck in Week 3!
