It seems every single week a quarterback gets hurt and influences your NFL bet at the Sbg global sportsbook. There are a number of quarterback issues for this week as well. Let’s take a look.
The biggest news surrounding the quarterbacks in Week 8 is with Minnesota’s Brett Favre. He is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against New England. Favre has said he will try and play so unless head coach Brad Childress steps in, you can figure Favre will start.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are definitely not the same team without Garrard at quarterback. He missed last week’s game with a concussion but he has practice this week and is expected to play at Dallas.
The Arizona Cardinals expect that Max Hall will start this week’s game against Tampa Bay. Hall was injured last week but he has practiced this week and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said that he should start.
He did not practice on Wednesday and it looks like Jason Campbell will get the start again for the Raiders. That is not necessarily good news if you like the Raiders with your NFL bet as Campbell has not played all that well this season.
The Lions will be getting Stafford back into the lineup this week. In fact, he is not even listed on the injury report so you can expect to see him under center on Sunday against the Redskins.
The Titans are expecting Young to return this week for their game against San Diego. Kerry Collins has played pretty well in relief of Young but Young is still the starting quarterback.
He is out this week for the game against Denver. The 49ers have decided to go with third-string quarterback Troy Smith instead of backup David Carr and that might be good news if you are considering San Francisco in NFL betting.
It should also be noted that Dallas quarterback Tony Romo is out for at least the next six weeks so Jon Kitna will be starting for Dallas. Looking ahead to next week it appears that Michael Vick will return from injury and be the starting quarterback for Philadelphia, pushing Kevin Kolb to the bench.
