The Hive – Week Three Edition

The Hive – Week 3 Edition

Welcome
back to The Hive! Another week and there is a ton happening in the world of
IDP. Injuries to some top IDP performers last week have owners scrambling to
replace IDP stalwarts like Justin Tuck, Gary Brackett, and Lofa Tatupu in the
short term, while DB studs Jermaine Phillips and Kenny Phillips were placed on
I.R. with season, and in both cases possible career ending injuries. Let’s take
a look at the week three matchups!
