Its finally here: the first full NFL Sunday of the year, and already there will be several huge game-time-decisions involving some of the most prominent players in the NFL. The Vikings will have a goal of getting All-Pro RB Adrian Peterson 10-15 carries as he debuts against the Jaguars after fully recovering from a severe ACL tear last season.
Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back spasms) is expected to play on Sunday against the Cardinals.
With Texans RB Arian Foster banged up but still expected to play, newcomer Justin Forsett could have a significant role in the offense.
Patriots RT Sebastian Vollmer (lower back) is questionable for Week 1, leaving the Patriots offensive line in a state of flux going into the 2012 NFL season.
The Saints have activated DE Will Smith, who was just temporarily reinstated from his bounty suspension.
The Rams signed MLB James Laurinaitis to a five-year, $41.5 million contract extension.
It’s looking more and more like 2012 will be LB Brian Urlacher’s last year in Chicago.
Ravens guard Bobbie Williams can’t wait for season opener against former team.
