Early week top stories...

1. Jacobs Injures Hamstring - Replaced By Droughns Running back Brandon Jacobs was sidelined in the third quarter with a left hamstring injury. Coughlin wasn't sure how serious Jacobs' injury was.
Fantasy take: Reuben Droughns replaced Jacobs and would be in line to start next week if Jacobs can't go. Derrick Ward was inactive Sunday due to an ankle injury.

2. McNabb's Status Uncertain - Donovan McNabb's status for the Eagles' game at New England next Sunday is uncertain because of a sprained ankle and injured thumb. McNabb left Philadelphia's 17-7 win over Miami in the second quarter after he hurt his right ankle on a hit following an incomplete pass. X-rays during the game were negative and McNabb spent the second half standing on the sideline. An MRI exam Monday showed no further damage. He injured his right thumb earlier in the game. X-rays showed it wasn't broken, but it was "quite swollen," according to coach Andy Reid.
Fantasy Take: A.J. Feeley would start against the unbeaten Patriots if McNabb cannot play. Reid also said that McNabb could miss practice this week and still start on Sunday

3. Losman To Start Vs. Jags -Despite Loss To Patriots, J.P. Losman will start at quarterback this Sunday when the Bills travel to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars, the team announced today. Losman was 15 of 26 passing for 173 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Bills' 56-10 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday night. Prior to the debacle against the Patriots, the Bills (5-5) had won four games in a row. (The Buffalo News)
Fantasy Take: Losman is the answer to this week's "Who will start for the Bills?" question. Don't expect much from Losman or any of the Bills' receivers this week against a very good Jags defense.
