The 2023 season is becoming the year of the (injured) quarterback.
Aaron Rodgers, Justin Fields, Daniel Jones, Deshaun Watson, Kirk Cousins, Ryan Tannehill, Derek Carr, Mac Jones, and now, most recently, Joe Burrow.
And all this calamity comes a year after a record-65 quarterbacks started regular-season games.
The current injury epidemic has reminded us all how vital the backup quarterback position is in the NFL. I’m taking it a step further. Let’s not forget how vital your No. 3 quarterback is, because clubs dealing with injuries to their starter now forced to play the backup are one snap away from the scenario the 49ers found themselves in during last year’s NFC Championship game.
Because of these pressing circumstances, I’ve made sweeping changes to the Practice Squad Power Rankings this week, with GMs in mind. Because now, more of them are likely looking for quarterbacks to either elevate to the 53-man roster or poach from other team to quickly get up to speed before Week 12.
So, the Week 11 PSPR is completely dedicated to the 10-best practice squad power rankings QUARTERBACKS. Choose wisely, GMs. There are some intriguing passers available, ready to cook.
As for The CUT, it remains at eight entering Week 11. Let’s pick it up!
Let’s quickly pay homage to Practice Squad Power Ranking alums like Saints TE Juwan Johnson, 49ers wideout Jauan Jennings, Ravens cornerback/safety Ar’Darius Washington, Buccaneers wideout Deven Thompkins, Seahawks guard Phil Haynes, Cardinals center Hjalte Froholdt, and Giants receiver Isaiah Hodgins (among many others) who have all graduated to become important mainstays on their clubs’ respective 53-man rosters and contribute in their own ways each weekend.
We didn’t see a single call up in Week 9, the CUT (Call-Up Tracker) remains at eight on the season. Instead of adjusting on the fly, I’m standing firm this week. You won’t see any changes…
