Steve Smith, Sr., who is as tough as they come, but similarly, not a spring chicken any longer, is having a great year, but it looks like he is down with a back injury. Smith is officially "doubtful" but try just taking a step when your back hurts, you know?
Alshon Jeffery, Jay Cutler, and Jimmy Clausen are all questionable for the Bears, but expect Cutler to play for sure. Also expect the Chiefs defense, in Kansas City, to get some muscle out of their systems against the strugglings Midway guys.
Eric Ebron (knee) is down for three weeks which is tough. Ebron was developing as the #1 Tight End in Detroit, but don't count on him for a spell (think Richard Rodgers as a substitute, as available).
I have long been a Ronnie Hillman fan, and I do like him today facing the Raiders in Oakland.Ruben Tejada, Wilmer Flores becomes the guy for the Mets. He quietly hit 16 homers last year, and should have been starting anyway.
The Fish resigned Ichiro Suzuki for one more season, giving the wonderful outfielder a chance to pick up the 49 hits he still needs to hit 3000 as an American Major Leaguer. Nice move cementing a Hall of Fame career that never should have been questioned in the first place.
Again, remember you can play against us at the Mastersball 50-team 50/50 Challenge and you can follow me @lawrmichaels.
