Giants quarterback Eli Manning was sacked Monday night — by no one.
Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots, groin, (Q): Gronkowski left the Week 2 contest with a groin injury, but there were several early signs that it was not particularly serious. He was on the sideline riding a bike shortly afterward and was not immediately ruled out for a return to the game. Although he did not return, it may have been a proactive measure on the part of the team, particularly given that Gronkowski has certainly had his share of injuries in recent years and is coming off back surgery.
Gronkowski spoke with reporters early in the week, also a good sign by Patriots standards, and returned to practice Thursday and Friday on a limited basis after a day off on Wednesday. Perhaps the best indication came from the player himself, who told reporters Friday that he is good to go.
Jimmy Graham, Seattle Seahawks, ankle, (Q): Graham got his legs rolled up on from behind, trapping his left ankle in an awkward, externally rotated position. He did not practice Wednesday or Thursday but did return Friday and did “everything,” according to head coach Pete Carroll. Despite being listed as questionable, Graham is expected to play, per Carroll. The team travels east to face the Tennessee Titans in a late afternoon game. As always, given the questionable tag, fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place.
