Uptempo Eagles face Indy...Updated RG III status expected...Closing in on division titles
The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Eagles take their high-octane offense on the road tonight to Indianapolis in an effort to open the season 2-0. The Colts had good preparation for Philadelphia's breakneck attack in a season-opening loss to Denver. Indy coach Chuck Pagano estimates the Broncos ran off plays every 20 seconds.
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III is scheduled for X-rays and an MRI on his dislocated left ankle that may give an idea on how long he'll be out of action. He was injured early in yesterday's loss to Jacksonville. Griffin's injury typically sidelines an NFL player for two months.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Vikings are expected to decide soon how to move forward in the wake of Adrian Peterson's indictment on child abuse charges in Texas last week. The star running back was deactivated for Sunday's loss to New England.
BALTIMORE (AP) The Orioles can pull to within one game of clinching the AL East when they open a home series against Toronto tonight. Baltimore's magic number for clinching the division is down to three. Lefty Wei-Yin Chen looks for his first career win over the Blue Jays after going 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in two stats.
ATLANTA (AP) Washington is in position to clinch the NL East title in Atlanta when it opens a series against the second-place Braves tonight. The Nationals' magic number is four games. Not only are the Braves facing elimination in the division race, they are in danger of missing the postseason all together. The Braves are four games back in the wild card race.
