AFC Inactives, Week 13

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

First, those who ARE active: Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (who will actually get the start opposite Dwayne Bowe), Colts RB Mike Hart, Colts LB Gary Brackett, Titans QB Kerry Collins (who is starting),

Now, those who are NOT active:

Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jaguars: One week after suffering an ankle sprain, he was back last week, and though he was didn’t do much, he was still an integral part of the gameplan. But he re-aggravated his ankle and won’t play today. Kassim Osgood will start in his place.

Kendrick Lewis, CB, Chiefs:
Kansas City has played exceptionally well with Lewis in the lineup (the Chiefs are 6-1 when he’s on the field). But he’s out today. So, that’s not good for Kansas City.

Kyle Vanden Bosch, DL, Bills: This is a big loss for Buffalo, especially since Vanden Bosch is one of the team’s best defensive players.

Brian Dawkins, CB, Broncos:
He hurt himself last week, but his skills have noticeably declined this season. This might not be the worst thing in the world for Denver.

Brandon Marshall, WR, Dolphins:
Limited in practice all week, many people thought Marshall would be healthy enough to play vs. the Raiders, especially since he said he was bouncing back quickly. Apparently, he's not. He's inactive, and that's a huge blow for Miami.

Kenny Britt, WR, Titans: Sounds like he's targeting next week as his return from a hamstring.

More on Osgood's alleged assailant

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Naturally, you remember what happened to Jaguars WR Kassim Osgood last week (I say "naturally," because it’s not very often that an NFL player has to make an escape out of a second-story window after a gun-wielding assailant breaks into the house of the woman that player is visiting).

Now, it appears the man charged in the alleged attack might have had some mental issues in the past. That’s what an April 20 protective order taken out by the 19-year-old woman Osgood was visiting would suggest.

The Florida Times-Union has the details.

Osgood Mackenzie Putnal took out the protective order against Julian Bartletto because she said he couldn’t handle their breakup and had threatened to kill himself. Since they broke up in March after a year of dating, she said, he had begun to stalk her, including an April 15 incident at Florida State College in Jacksonville, where she’s a student.

In the protective order, she wrote, “He tried to run me off the road by swerving his vehicle into my vehicle, cutting in front of me and slamming on his brakes. (He) then blocked my vehicle, yelling that he was going to kill himself.”

Although Bartletto was held for mental observation after that confrontation, he was back in the college parking lot four days later waiting for Putnal.

Five months later, he allegedly broke into her house, where she was watching TV with Osgood, and threatened to kill the both of them. Police say Bartletto pistol-whipped both of them before Osgood and Putnal tried to escape. Eventually, Putnal and Bartletto exchanged gun fire as Osgood ran to a neighbor’s home to call the police.

According to the newspaper, Bartletto remains in jail, charged with aggravated battery, false imprisonment, armed robbery, burglary and violation of the injunction.

Osgood takes to his Twitter account

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Surely, you remember our blog post from Wednesday about Jaguars WR Kassim Osgood and the harrowing escape he had to make out of a lady companion’s second-floor window after a gun-wielding intruder broke into her home and threatened them both.

Osgood declined comment to reporters Wednesday, but this evening, he was quite prolific on his Twitter account. And by prolific I mean that he kind of asked people to quit pestering him (but in a nice way).

A sampling of his tweets:

“First off Jim Rome, that was quite entertaining. But some wrong facts. She wasn't my girlfriend and there was no relationship to reevaluate.”

“None of you should speculate when u don't have the facts correct. Don't assume ‘anything.’”

“Stick to your day job as I am. Move on. Go Jags. It's Indy week.”

“@taniaganguli just tryin to put it behind and get my team on a winning trend. That's more important now. Team before self.”

And by some of the comments he retweeted, you can see why he took to Twitter to speak his piece – or it was simply to let people know the kind of jackasses who are out there on the Internet.

“RT @SK_EZ: Just read about and his pistol whipping. Sim how you going to (wimp) out and not kick dudes ass? Jump out a window? Left her??”

“RT @TheOriginalTKO: @SK_EZ 'Cause the female @kassimosgood was with was only 19! He knows his 30 year old ass is wrong.”

“RT @DeLaSole904: @kassimosgood so u just gonna lock yourself in the room and leave the girl in the house damn smh”

Osgood has to escape gun-wielding intruder

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

In a scene straight out of a bad action movie (or an awesome action movie, come to think of it), Jaguars WR Kassim Osgood had to jump out a second-floor window of a home he was visiting Monday night in order to flee a gun-wielding intruder.

Osgood In an almost unreal scenario – things like this happen in real life?!? – Osgood was pistol-whipped before escaping and the 19-year-old woman he was visiting traded gunfire with the alleged assaulter, police said.

The Florida Times-Union has the story, and it sounds like a crazy one.

Osgood and his companion were watching TV about 11:15 p.m., when a man, identified as 20-year-old Julian Armond Bartletto entered the room with his face covered by a plastic bag and began throwing Mackenzie Rae Putnal around the room by her hair and hitting her with his fists and his gun.

He also hit Osgood in the head with the gun, according to the police report.

Bartletto held the gun to the heads of Osgood and Putnal, and apparently, he hit her dog as well.

The conclusion of the story:

(T)hen he ordered the couple to sit on the floor, Putnal escaped down a hall and leaped over the balcony to the floor below, the report said.

The gunman ran after her, so Osgood jammed a chair under the game room door handle and jumped out a window to the lawn below, running to a neighbor’s house to call police. Meanwhile, Bartletto and Putnal confronted each other downstairs with guns. The woman targeted him with her laser sight before both shot at each other and missed.

Bartletto was later arrested and charged with aggravated battery, false imprisonment, armed robbery, burglary and violation of an injunction. He’s in jail with no bond.

Osgood politely declined comment today.

No. 2 WR could be an issue for Jaguars

Today the Jaguars website posed the question of who will line up opposite budding star Mike Sims-Walker as the No. 2 receiver in 2010. In examining the options closely, the only thing that’s clear is that the Jaguars will regret letting go of Torry Holt.

Their hope is that speedy second-year target Mike Thomas will step up, but the stocky 5’8”, 198-pounder seems better equipped for the slot. Veteran Troy Williamson is fast but unreliable. Newcomer Kassim Osgood signed with the Jags primarily because he saw an opportunity to become a fulltime receiver. Osgood is well-sized but has spent most of his eight NFL years on special teams (which doesn’t happen by accident). Last year’s fifth-round pick Jarrett Dillard only caught six passes before breaking his leg/ankle in November.
