Carolina Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell is listed as doubtful to play this Sunday against the Washington Redskins because of a concussion, according to the team's website. LaFell was unable to practice Friday. "It doesn't (look good for LaFell)," Panthers coach Ron Rivera told Panthers.com on Friday. "We'll see how he is tomorrow, and then we'll go from there." Louis Murphy, Kealoha Pilares and Armanti Edwards are the candidates to replace LaFell as the No. 2 wideout on the depth chart if he cannot play. David Gettis (hamstring) and rookie Joe Adams may also move up. Gettis could be taken off the physically-unable-to-perform list.

If indeed he did pass the sideline testing then it was insufficient because he has been sidelined now, probably for Week 9 at least, with a concussion. If testing wasn't administered this could become a real issue for the Panthers.

RG3 has been a very good quarterback in his early career, but is it beginning to get to his head? Today he made a comment and I don’t know if I was suppose to take it as a shot at Cam Newton or it just came out bad. Griffin said: “I’d rather be compared to an Aaron Rodgers or a guy like that,” Griffin said Wednesday, “someone who has won Super Bowls.”
To me that sounds...
Carolina Panthers (1-6) at Washington Redskins (3-5)
This is one of two trap lines I identified this week. According to this line, the Redskins and the Panthers are comparable teams with Washington as 3 point home favorites. However, Washington is at 3-5 and the Panthers are at 1-6. Because of that, the action is on Washington and yet, the line is still falling as it opened at -4...

Chicago Bears safety Chris Conte was fined $21,000 for making contact to Carolina Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell's head during their game last Sunday. Conte told ESPN Chicago that he thought it was a practical joke. "I didn't think it was real," he said after practice Friday. "I thought it was a prank.
