Ouch! Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that Eagles right tackle Shawn Andrews is out for the season with a back injury, which puts Winston Justice, who started last Sunday against the Panthers, on the spot. Well, at least they have a little mobility at the quarterback position ... and Jon Runyan, please pick up the green courtesy phone.
Also, Jaguars defensive end Reggie Hayward will be out for the rest of the season with a broken shin. In 2008, Hayward led all ends in Stop Rate and ranked second with -1.3 yards per play allowed. This might have the Jags playing fewer snaps in the 3-4 alignment they want to implement in 2009.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
