The Los Angeles Chargers confirmed Thursday that defensive end Joey Bosa had surgery to repair a dislocated finger on his right hand.
Bosa suffered the injury during his rookie season in his fourth game back from a hamstring injury, a Thursday night contest at Qualcomm Stadium against the Denver Broncos.
It has taken some time, but it looks like Raanta is finally showing why many were high on him coming into his role as a starter in the desert. He leads all goaltenders on the ESPN Player Rater for fantasy value during the past 30 days and has been lights-out since Jan. 1 (.937 save percentage in 15 games).
It looks like Jones has finally successfully fended off the challenge from Aaron Dell to his role as primary starter for the Sharks. Struggling through some bad goaltending and injuries, Jones had a really nasty December and January. But so far through February, Jones has posted a 2.00 goals-against average and .932 save percentage that is indicative of a workhorse starter. Even better, his only relief from Dell during the past seven games came as part of a back-to-back set.
So look for the comparisons to continue to gain momentum if Jackson runs a sub-4.4 and spins the ball the way he’s capable of during throwing drills. The way Jackson performs on the whiteboard and interviews with teams will have a bigger impact on his draft stock than his workout — as is the case with any quarterback — but that doesn’t mean people shouldn’t enjoy the show he puts on during tests and drills.
Kimes: Bridgewater. The Vikings have enough cap space to make a run at Cousins, but I think they’ll back off when his price tag reaches uncharted territory; Cousins is better than Keenum and Bridgewater, but he’s not that much better. It’s hard to forecast when Bridgewater will take Keenum’s job (I expect the team to keep both quarterbacks), but I still think Bridgewater is Minnesota’s long-term plan.
Graziano: Bridgewater. My projected scenario is one in which the Vikings bring back Keenum and Bridgewater, and Bridgewater eventually takes the job away from Keenum — either in a training camp competition or after Keenum struggles during the regular season.
