---The Eagles have lost RG Shawn Andrews for the rest of the season with a broken right leg. A rookie out of Arkansas, Andrews was the 16th pick overall in the 2004 NFL Draft. He has battled weight problems and sinus problems during his career. This could be a big blow to the Eagles, even worse than losing Correll Buckhalter and N.D. Kalu.
---Lions WR Charles Rogers is out for the season, breaking his collarbone in Detroit's 20-16 win over Chicago. Yesterday's injury was near the same location where he had broken his collarbone last season during a bye week practice. Head coach Steve Mariucci will now have to rely on rookie Roy Williams as the #1 receiver, with the loss of Rogers.
---Titans LG Zach Piller ruptured his left biceps Saturday at Miami and will miss the rest of the 2004 season. This certainly hurts QB Steve McNair, as one of his main guys up front won't be available.
---A.J. Feeley will start at quarterback Sunday night in Cincinnati for the Dolphins. Feeley nor Fiedler are the answer in Miami. This team needs to draft a franchise-type quarterback. Can you say "with the 3rd pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select QB Kyle Orton, Purdue University"?
(Whenever Feeley is mentioned here, I have to mention Heather Mitts as well. It's a new law that was just passed or something...)

Mike Holmgren will have his Monday news conference at 2:15 Pacific. Here's the link to the press conference, as we should know much more about the official status of Shaun Alexander by that time.
