Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor left Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens with a tailbone injury. Chancellor seemed to take himself out of the game and went to the sideline, before going to the locker room without his helmet.
The Seahawks then announced that Chancellor Elite Kids Nick Vannett Jersey was questionable to return to the game with a tailbone injury.
Chancellor is one of the leaders on Seattle’s vaunted defense, a Womens Dan Williams Jersey member of the “Legion of Boom” who is among the best strong safeties in the NFL. A sixth-year veteran, Chancellor has 74 total tackles, a forced fumble and a pair of interceptions on the season.
Chancellor and free safety Earl Thomas comprise what is probably the best safety pairing in the whole league. They were dominant for Seattle’s Super Bowl run, and Chancellor himself has been named a second-team All-Pro twice and has been named to three Pro Bowls. Missing him for any amount of time hurts the Seahawks, who are currently in a battle for a Wild Card spot in the NFC.
Bortles’ No. 1 target is Allen Robinson, who quietly tied Tyler Eifert for the NFL lead in touchdown catches (12) on Sunday. This Jaguars offense can upset the balance in the AFC South if things continue spiral for the Colts and Texans.
I’m not enlightening anyone when I tell you that Steelers receiver Antonio Brown is ridiculously talented, but a few statistical benchmarks he reached on Sunday paint a vivid picture anyway.
After catching 7 passes for 87 yards in Pittsburgh’s win over the Bengals, he broke the century mark and moved to 100 catches on the season, his third consecutive season reaching that milestone. He’s just the sixth player in NFL history to do that.
Previous to Brown’s emergence in Pittsburgh as a true dual-threat, only two players had ever recorded 100-catch seasons while adding a punt return touchdown to the mix — Troy Brown in 2001 and Eric Metcalf in 1995 — and amazingly, Brown has now done that three years running.
