Tennessee’s backup QB looks perplexed by push-button phone, video goes viral

During Saturday’s 34-3 blowout loss to Florida, Tennessee’s backup quarterback made an embarassing blunder that put the team in an even more unfortunate light. J.T. Shrout was shown on the sideline during ESPN’s broadcast picking up an entire push-button telephone and putting it up to his ear.  Obviously push-button phones haven’t been a staple in many homes for years, but it […]

Somehow, James Conner avoided the injury report, and we already know Damien Williams (knee) and Devin Singletary (hamstring) are “out”.

Fantasy Injury Updates: Mark Andrews, Greg Olsen, Jimmy Graham affecting Week 3 start ’em, sit ’em calls

It’s only Week 3, but we’re already seeing “questionable” tags for players who probably aren’t dealing with serious injuries. Get used to it, especially at a position like tight end, where there are a lot of older players who are still useful for fantasy football purposes. This week, Greg Olsen, Jimmy Graham, Trey Burton, and Mark Andrews all have fantasy […]
