Cowboys Claiborne out for year with torn patellar tendon‏

Morris Claiborne’s 2014 NFL season has come to an end. The Dallas Cowboys corner suffered a torn patellar tendon in Sunday night’s victory over the New Orleans Saints.

Cowboys executive Stephen Jones confirmed the news during a radio appearance on Monday.

Claiborne was having a disappointing season prior to getting injured. The 6th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft had recently been benched for his poor play.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had recently called-out his high-priced corner, saying he expected better from Claiborne.

Unfortunately for the already injury plagued Cowboys, Claiborne’s “better” will have to wait until 2015.

Giants vs. Redskins Thursday Night Preview‏

Giants vs. Redskins Thursday Night Preview‏

The New York Giants (1-2) travel to Washington tonight to battle their NFC East division rivals the Redskins in Week 4’s edition of Thursday Night Football.

The Washington Redskins (1-2) return home after losing a heartbreaker to the Eagles last Sunday in Philly.

Washington lost their starting quarterback Robert Griffin lll to an injury (dislocated ankle) in the first quarter of that game, but backup Kirk Cousins came in and played very well as a replacement.

Cousins will be looking to build off his 3 touchdown, 427 yard performance that he put up against the Eagles when he faces the Giants defense tonight at Fed Ex Field.

Meanwhile, the Giants are coming off their first win of the 2014 NFL season, this by defeating the Texans last week in front of their home crowd.

Eli Manning avoided throwing an interception for the first time in 2014, and was able to find wideout Victor Cruz for the receivers first touchdown of the season.

New York’s rushing attack looked stellar against the Texans, as Rashad Jennings was able to run for 176 total yards on 34 carries.

The Giants have won 6 of their past 8 games in Washington but I personally don’t feel they will get the job done tonight.

Washington just has to many threats on offense for the Giants in my opinion and Kirk Cousins will be looking to prove that he is the Redskins #1 arm, this in front of a sure to be amped-up home crowd.

Vegas currently has Washington pegged as a -4 point favorite.

Steve Smith: There will be blood and guts everywhere‏

At 35-years of age, Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith continues to prove that he is one of the NFL’s best wideouts.

In three games this season, Smith has compiled 18 receptions for 290 yards and a touchdown.

The veteran receiver has had two 100+ yard games in 2014, his latest coming last week against divisional rival the Cleveland Browns.

This Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens play host to Smith’s former team the Carolina Panthers.

Obviously Smith is excited about playing his former squad, whom he spent 13 seasons with, so much so that he had this message for fans attending the game:

“Bring your goggles cause there will be blood and guts everywhere!”

The Panthers vs. Ravens game is set for noon ET on Sunday. Be sure to catch this highly anticipated contest live at one of Kauai’s Kalapaki Joe’s locations!
