Geno Smith Out 6-10 Weeks with Broken Jaw

Can I make better jokes than the ones already going through your head? Geno Smith will be out 6-10 weeks after reserve linebacker IK Enemkpali (who has been cut) broke his jaw in a locker room fight this morning. Ryan Fitzpatrick becomes the Jets' starter now, at least for the first month of the season. I think the Jets may actually be a stronger wild-card contender with Fitzpatrick running the offense. Our projections love the Jets, but not because of their offense. The defense isn't affected by what happened today and frankly, Fitzpatrick is a better quarterback than Smith right now.

Arian Foster Groin Injury May Require Surgery

Uh-oh, Houston fans. Arian Foster injured his groin at Houston practice last night, and it looks like it's going to require surgery. That will mean going on IR-designated for return, taking Foster out of action for at least eight weeks of the regular season. So who do you want to count on alongside your questionable quarterbacks, Texans: Chris Polk, who can't stay healthy, or Alfred Blue and his league-worst rushing DVOA from last season? Or is there going to be a Chris Johnson or Knowshon Moreno signing here?

Russell Wilson and Seahawks Agree to Extension

The Asterisk is getting paid. Wilson and the Seahawks apparently have agreed to a four-year, $87.6 million dollar extension, though we're not sure yet if the announced money is for 2015-2018 or for 2016-2019. It looks like Wilson will now be the second-highest paid player in the game, behind Aaron Rodgers.
