The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will likely have two of their best players healthy and ready to play when the 2013 NFL Season opens, as All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis and Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph are both expected to suit up against the New York Jets.
For the second-straight year, a promising season for New York giants running back Andre Brown has been potentially derailed by a fractured leg. Brown limped off to the locker room just before the end of the first half of the 28-20 loss to the Pats in their preseason finale. X-rays revealed the fracture. Brown fractured his left fibula last year in a win against the Green Bay Packers on Nov. 25.
His latest fracture isn’t of the season-ending variety, but he’ll be out for at least the first month of the regular season.
It appeared as though earlier this week that Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III had been given full medical clearance to return to football, and would be ready for the ESPN Monday Night Opener vs. the Philadelphia Eagles in less than two weeks.
As it turns out, while he may be ready to play, he may not have been given the full blessings of Doctor James Andrews.
