Not quite everyone was bailed out today

Despite a robust lobbying effort from the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, the bailout bill ultimately did not -- repeat, did not -- include any meaningful relief for owners of Ryan Grant and Chad Johnson.

Sorry, American.

Who's to blame for the FSTA's failure? Let's just say that the fiery partisan rhetoric of Peter Schoenke did not help. The Stock Watch posted its greatest one-day loss since '87.

To help you salvage something from this calamitous day, here are a few NFL bullets...

The Arizona Republic reports that Anquan Boldin won't play this week, but his owners shouldn't have to wait too long:

The Cardinals are holding out hope that receiver Anquan Boldin could play against Dallas on Oct 12, even though he underwent surgery Thursday evening to repair a sinus fracture.

Again, Steve Breaston is the appropriate add.

Suddenly things are looking just a little better for Brian Westbrook. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Westbrook was a "full participant" in practice today, although he'll officially remain questionable for Week 5.

Here's a useless, evasive nugget of nothingness from Andy Reid:

"We'll just see how he feels later today and tomorrow and, most important, we'll see how he feels on Sunday."

The list of the 25 most heavily-targeted receivers continues to include a few widely-available names: Antonio Bryant (fifth in targets among WRs), Muhsin Muhammad (sixth), Matt Jones (13th), Justin McCareins (21st), Amani Toomer (24th).

Carson Palmer reportedly practiced fully on Friday according to the Cincinnati Enquirer:

“He did well,” head coach Marvin Lewis said of his starting quarterback. “We’ll see how it is in the morning (Saturday). If things continue as they have, it’s all systems go.”

Reminder: Plaxico Burress can't help you this weekend. He's serving a one-game suspension. Toomer, Domenik Hixon, and the other Steve Smith should have unusual value in Week 5.

Justin Gage didn't practice on Friday. He's doubtful for Week 5, according to the Tennessean. LenDale White did practice, however.

It sounds like the goal line is Le'Ron McClain's domain, but that Willis McGahee (ribs) will be able to play this week versus Tennessee.
