Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb could all surpass 1,000 receiving yards.

In the first two games, Cobb has 16 receptions for 236 yards, Nelson has 10 receptions for 196 yards and Jones has 11 catches for 178 yards.  All three are on pace to fly past 1,000 yards on the season.

Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather was fined $42,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit that knocked Lacy out of Sunday’s game.  Meriweather said that he planned to appeal.
