Drew Brees out for 6 weeks with a torn ligament in his throwing hand.

Ben Roethlisberger done for the year with an elbow injury.

And....

The Dolphins surely making Darius Rucker cry!

Include Luck retiring and the two quarterbacks who completed the most passes last year plus the one with the highest QBR are all done.  Now add Colt McCoy, Nick Foles and Alex Smith.  QB injuries are nothing new but it's not a great start.

With Big Ben out, it opens the door for the Ravens to be the favorites to win the AFC North.

Just too many different voices saying the same variation on the deadbeat theme so I believe there's something there.  The sexual misconduct charges are more serious if murkier (apparently no crimes reported contemporaneously, just civil charges now more than a year later) but based on what we've seen from Brown, it all sounds plausible.  The Patriots made a deal with the devil either way and it would seem a matter of indeterminate time before it all collapses.

The Cowboys released Taco Charlton (no surprise), who was promptly picked up by....the Dolphins, who play the Cowboys next.

The Dolphins have announced a change in QBs. Josh Rosen will be starting.

Cam Newton apparently won't be playing this week due to an ankle sprain. 

Antonio Brown has been dropped by Nike.

Time for Antonio Brown to be kicked out of the league. Or least suspended a  long time.....

*edited to add* Since I originally posted this, the Patriots have released him, and the league has put out a message that should make teams wary of signing him any time soon.

Washington fired Jay Gruden, and named Bill Callahan the interim coach. Unfortunately, they didn't fire their owner or GM, who are the real problem.

(And yes, I'm aware an owner can't be fired.)
