Earlier today, we learned that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will likely be placed on the club’s injured reserve list with the designation to return this week. Here are a few more Monday morning items from around the NFC, including some more noteworthy injury updates:
- With the Seahawks now winless in their first two games of the regular season, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk wonders if there will be any movement on the Kam Chancellor front this week, while NFL.com’s Michael Silver spoke to several of Chancellor’s teammates about the star safety’s holdout.
- The diagnosis for Packers defensive tackle Josh Boyd isn’t as bad as it first seemed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, who tweets that Boyd broke a small ankle bone, but isn’t expected to be sidelined for a long time.
- Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso doesn’t believe he has an ACL injury, but he’ll have an MRI today to assess his left knee, a source tells Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (Twitter link). Alonso left yesterday’s game after aggravating the same knee he injured in 2014.
- After winning a power play against former GM Howie Roseman in January, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly took control of the team’s roster and made several bold, risky moves in the offseason. As Mike Sielski of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes, that means that Kelly has to shoulder the blame for the Eagles’ slow start.
