Week 14 wrap/Tuesday news

I tried to blog Monday night from home, but every time I reached the blog window, my laptop shut down. Oh well.
By now, you've either hd your first playoff game or are getting ready for one – if you've already been eliminated, why are you reading this?
This should help you prepare for Week 15.

Curtis Martin, RB, Jets. The big news from the weekend is that Martin is done for the season. He wasn't having a great year, but he was still worth starting many weeks as a No. 2 back. Cedric Houston will be the Jets' starter the rest of the way.

Chris Perry, RB, Cincinnati. Good news for Rudi Johnson owners. Perry is likely done for the season with a severly sprained ankle meaning Johnson could get a few touches on third downs as well.

Jamal Lewis, RB, Baltimore. Lewis didn't get a carry Sunday despite being healthy. Chester Taylor took the bulk of rushing attempts for the Ravens.

Michael Bennett, RB, Minnesota. It looks like Bennett is back out of the doghouse this week and will start ahead of Mewelde Moore. Neither is considered a good start against the Steelers, however.

Ryan Moats, RB, Philadelphia. Moats had a big day in place of Brian Westbrook, putting up his first 100-yard game, including a 40-yard TD run.

Kyle Boller, QB, Baltimore. Despite stinking worse and worse each week, Boller remains the Ravens' starting QB, thus killing the value of Todd Heap and Derrick Mason.

Marques Tuiasosopo, QB, Oakland. Tui will get one more start to either show he is or isn't the Raiders' QB of the future. He was awful last week against the Jets.

Koy Detmer, QB, Philadelphia. With Mike McMahon hurting with a strained hip and bruised knee, Detmer could move into the starting lineup this week.
