Defense Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Trent Cole, DE, PHI12/16/2014 11:23:00 AM
Description: Eagles DL Trent Cole (hand) is unlikely to play in Week 16, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Insight: Brandon Graham has played well in his role and should fill in just fine for Cole with no loss of production.
Brandon Marshall, LB, DEN12/15/2014 1:54:00 PM
Description: The "other" Brandon Marshall, linebacker for Denver, suffered a mid-foot sprain, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Marshall has been an underrated performer this season and if he can't go by playoff time it's a blow to the defense.
Vontae Davis, DB, IND12/14/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: Colts cornerback Vontae Davis (concussion) is officially active for Sunday's game versus Houston
Insight: Davis is one of the best cornerbacks in the league, meaning he'll likely play head-to-head with DeAndre Hopkins.
Jadeveon Clowney, LB, HOU12/9/2014 9:10:00 PM
Description: Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) will miss the next nine months after undergoing microfracture surgery.
Insight: It was on his right knee, and this is not good news, as this surgery is one of the toughest to go through as an athlete. There will be a good chance Clowney starts next season on the PUP list.
Vontaze Burfict, LB, CIN12/9/2014 3:05:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (left knee) has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
Insight: Burfict is a difference maker on the field, but this season had trouble getting out there. He played in just five games. Vincent Rey will continue to start.
Lavonte David, LB, TAM12/7/2014 3:49:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay linebacker Lavonte David left Sunday's game with an apparent head injury.
Insight: He is done for day, and will now have to go trhough the league's concussion protocol.
Vontae Davis, DB, IND12/7/2014 12:03:00 PM
Description: Colts cornerback Vontae Davis (concussion) is officially inactive for Sunday's game versus Cleveland.
Insight: Usually we do not comment on defensive back inactives, but Davis is one of the best cornerbacks in the league, meaning without him, Josh Gordon could be in line for a big day.
Vontaze Burfict, LB, CIN12/5/2014 2:48:00 PM
Description: Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (left knee scoped) will miss Week 14.
Insight: It takes most players about four weeks to come back from a scope and we are at the five- week mark, so the injury must have been more serious than anyone expected. Vincent Rey will continue to start.
