The unforgiving injury imp is hungry. And it will stop at nothing to destroy your playoff dreams. Last week, the insatiable beast snacked on the hands, thumbs, feet and ribs of several notable quarterbacks. Matt Schaub(notes) and Matt Cassel(notes) were felled by season-ending injuries. Meanwhile, Michael Vick(notes), Ben Roethlisberger(notes) and Matthew Stafford(notes) suffered painful setbacks that could directly impact their availability or overall effectiveness in the coming weeks. The fallout for marquee names such as DeSean Jackson(notes), Dwayne Bowe(notes) and Andre Johnson(notes) could be severe. On this week's show, Craig Shemon, Brad Evans and Andy Behrens analyzed each situation and provide owners with a list of widely available crutches that could help playoff-tracking teams remain upright.
Also on this week's shocking episode, we gave you the latest news on wounded stars Vick, Jeremy Maclin(notes), A.J. Green(notes), Frank Gore(notes) and Darren McFadden(notes), exchanged heated words on the Week 11 value of Ryan Mathews(notes), explained why Chris Johnson could be cool in Hotlanta, played a game of over/unders and, of course, answered your pressing questions. Already camped out for Black Friday deals? Don't worry. Listen to the replay below.
