    Texans outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus tears pectoral muscle

    As if it wasn’t bad enough losing three-time defensive player of the year J.J. Watt, the Texans lost another key member of their defense last night.

    According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, Texans outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus suffered a torn pectoral muscle Sunday night and is out for the season.

    Mercilus was injured on the first series of the game, not long before Watt left with a tibial plateau fracture. Mercilus will need surgery to repair the damage, which will end his season.

    He was replaced in the lineup Sunday night by Brennan Scarlett, but it will be hard to replace his production. He led the Texans with 7.5 sacks last season and had 12.0 in 2015.

    Lions lose Haloti Ngata for season with torn bicep

    The Lions’ defensive line has just suffered a big loss.

    Haloti Ngata, the big defensive tackle who was off to a good start this season, suffered a torn bicep on Sunday and will be placed on injured reserve. Although he would be eligible to return in eight weeks, the Detroit Free Press reports that the team’s medical staff has already ruled him out for the rest of the season.

    After a bad year in 2016, the Lions’ defense has rebounded this season, both against the run and against the pass. But with Ngata out for the season, they’ll have to scramble to replace an important cog.

    The Lions have added to their defensive line this week by signing defensive end Datone Jones and defensive tackle Caraun Reid.

    It looks like Dunbar is finally healthy, though I don't see where he fits...

    Rams TE Derek Carrier cleared the concussion protocol. Everybody else came out of Sunday's game fine. RB Lance Dunbar is also healthy and eligible to come off PUP, but the team can also delay that process by a week or two in order to preserve depth. Rams continue to be very fortunate on the injury front. The only real question is DB Lamarcus Joyner, who has missed the past three games with a bad hamstring.

    Last year we had Romo and Cutler out at QB. Not the star power of Rodgers but two starters. We had Peterson out as big a name as Johnson. We had Gronk and Jeffery out so two big receiver names. Watt was also out last year. This year we have Decker out he equals out Yanda plus we had Lane Johnson out oline probably equals out. It always seems worse but it's usually pretty even.
