Defense Player Notes For The Last 15 Days
Eric Berry, DB, KAN 11/24/2014 5:11:00 PM Description: Chiefs SS Eric Berry has been placed on the reserve/non-football illness list. Insight: This effectively ends his season, and according to ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher, the team thinks that he has lymphoma. If this is true, our hearts go out to Berry and his family. He is only 26-years-old.
Jarvis Jones, LB, PIT 11/24/2014 3:05:00 PM Description: Pittsburgh linebacker Jarvis Jones (wrist surgery) is back at practice Monday. Insight: Jones probably won't be ready this weekend, but more likely will return for Week 14.
Tashaun Gipson, DB, CLE 11/24/2014 3:02:00 PM Description: Browns safety Tashaun Gipson's right knee injury is thought to be a torn MCL, according to an Ian Rapoprt report. Insight: That would be a season-ending injury and a huge blow to the Browns defense which has carried the team to their 7-4 record.
Tashaun Gipson, DB, CLE 11/23/2014 3:39:00 PM Description: Browns safety Tashaun Gipson was removed from Sunday's game with a right knee injury. Insight: He collided with Joe Haden, and had to be carted off the field. Gipson is officially done for the day.
Lance Briggs, LB, CHI 11/23/2014 2:58:00 PM Description: Bears linebacker Lance Briggs left Sunday's game with a groin injury. Insight: He was injured during a second-quarter collision with Mike Evans. Briggs is officially done for the day.
Ashlee Palmer, LB, DET 11/23/2014 1:52:00 PM Description: Lions linebacker Ashlee Palmer had left the Week 12 game with a possible concussion. Insight: The Lions were already short-handed at that spot, so this won't help slow Tom Brady and the Patriots offense down.
Karlos Dansby, LB, CLE 11/17/2014 5:00:00 PM Description: Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby (knee) is expected to miss about a month, according to coach Mike Pettine. Insight: He is reportedly dealing with a sprained MCL, so there is chance Dansby does not play again this season. His absence is a major loss to the Browns already suspect run-defense.
Ryan Shazier, LB, PIT 11/17/2014 11:36:00 AM Description: Steelers rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier (ankle) will not play Monday against Tennessee. Insight: The first-round selection will miss his second game due to the ankle and already missed three games with a sprained knee earlier this season.
