|If youíre looking for a reason as to why you need to ignore the training camp hype, letís look at Jordan Norwood. The Browns talked him up last summer and then proceeded to give him exactly two targets over their first six games. By seasonís end, Norwood had accumulated just 23 receptions on 34 targets for 268 yards and a score. Best suited to play out of the slot, Norwood will battle rookie 4th round pick Travis Benjamin and veteran Josh Cribbs for that role in 2012. While he may put up some numbers in the first few weeks of the season, he figures to see his playing time decrease as Benjamin grows into the role. Norwood is not worth owning in 2012.
| Demaryius Thomas still hurting -- Thu Sep 15 11:55 pm --|
Suffered hip injury early in Week 1 win
|Demaryius Thomas (hip) again stood on the sideline twice as long as he practiced Thursday at Broncos headquarters. The veteran wide receiver tried to shrug off the seriousness of a left hip injury. But a full week after first suffering pain, the hurt is lingering. Just like he did Wednesday, Thomas on Thursday participated in only one-third of the Broncosí practice snaps, coach Gary Kubiak said. He has spent most of this week on the sideline.
ďItís day by day. I ainít gonna be feeling great. But itís getting better every day. ... Stopping out of breaks, going down field, even taking hits. With the hip, you never know,Ē Thomas said. (Denver Post)|
FF Today's Take: Thomas owners need to start making other plans for Week 2, if not beyond. It is a lot to ask any player to play through a hip injury to begin with, and hip injuries are almost serious in nature. Jordan Norwood and Cody Latimer would be the receivers most likely to fill in should DT miss time, but Emmanuel Sanders and Virgil Green would be the ones to benefit most statistically from his absence.
