–You can check out my Week 6 Rewind at VegasInsider.com where I provided all the details on Oscar Wiener’s team cashing a wrong-side winner at Northwestern.
–I also had some thoughts on LVH’s Games of the Year in this report posted on VI.
–I’ll have my Week 7 injury report up at some point tomorrow or Thursday. There are a bunch to monitor this week and here’s just a small sampling of the ones I’ll be updating once Wednesday’s practices conclude: 3 key players for LSU (safety Craig Loston, LB Tahj Jones & WR Jarvis Landry), Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez, Maryland QB C.J. Brown, Southern Cal WR Marquise Lee & RB Silas Redd, Oregon RB De’Anthony Thomas, Louisville WR DeVante Parker & South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney.
–USC’s Redd will finally make his season debut Thursday vs. Arizona. Also, Rutgers LB Jamal Merrell is set to return at Louisville after missing three straight games with a kidney injury.
—The Braves boycotted franchise legend Chipper Jones throwing out the first pitch before Game 1 of the NLDS. Really?! No wonder they lost to the Dodgers in four games just like Chipper predicted.
–As if last night’s loss to the Jets on MNF to drop the Falcons to 1-4 wasn’t enough of a pimpslap to the face, now Julio Jones might be out for the season with a foot injury. Fox’s Jay Glazer provided this scoop via twitter, although he stated that Jones would seek a second opinion in Charlotte on Wednesday.
