NFL Round Up 9-29-08

Cincinnati Bengals - There is concern in Cincy that there's more to Carson Palmer's elbow than what's being said. The MRI on his elbow came back and it was 'scary' according to Palmer. He didn't want to comment too much on it, but this is one of the toughest QBs in the league. There is a rumor that Palmer will need Tommy John surgery to repair his elbow. Only Jake Delhomme of the Panthers has had that type of surgery and he's come back to play well this year. But having this surgery will doom the Bengals for 2008-09 and obviously frustrate that fan base even more. At least Chris Henry will be active this week, right?

Green Bay Packers - Aaron Rodgers only has a sprained shoulder. Mike McCarthy informed everyone that this is no major structural damage, but when are these guys honest? So, with everyone jumping on the Packers bandwagon and thusly siding with them over Favre, where are you now? A lot of people have said that the Packers have built this organization to go on without Favre. If that's the case, then welcome home Matt Flynn, this is destiny calling. If Rodgers is out for any extended time, this may turn in to a nightmare quickly for the Packers.

St. Louis Rams - Scott Linehan has been let go by the Rams. This wasn't surprising at all, unless you had Lane Kiffin getting fired before Linehan. The Rams have been horriawful this season and they didn't look to get any better even with the QB change to Trent Green. Jim Haslett will take over the reins and will undo the QB switch and put Marc Bulger back in as starter. Funny that Bulger was actually drafted by Haslett while he was in New Orleans.
