Tom Brady is 2-5 in games at Denver and the Patriots' offense is running low on offensive weapons. Can they keep the streak going? Three teams that look playoff worthy? The Seahawks, Texans and ... Bucs.
Can Big Ben and the Steelers keep pace with the division-leading Bengals? They'll have to get past the Seahawks -- in Seattle. Will Brock Osweiler give the Broncos a fighting chance against the 10-0 Patriots?
Gerhart (groin) is active for Thursday's game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Gerhart was a healthy scratch the past two weeks, but with Bernard Pierce (calf) unable to play, the former Viking is now in line to serve as the No. 3 running back. With T.J. Yeldon (groin) and Denard Robinson also active, Gerhart is unlikely to get more than two or three touches, unless Yeldon's injury flares up during the
Hurns (foot) is listed as probable for Sunday's matchup with San Diego, Jaguars.com reports.
Hurns has been nursing minor injuries to his foot and thigh, and he was limited in practice Wednesday. However, neither ailment appears to be overly serious, and the expectation is that Hurns will be available to line up opposite Allen Robinson in Week 12. Hurns' seven-game touchdown streak was snapped last week against Tennessee but he remains a productive option in what's been a surprisingly fantasy-friendly Jaguars passing attack.
Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was among the notable players listed on the final injury report for Week 8 at home against Miami. Gerhart was listed as probable after missing two straight games with a foot injury. Craig Loston (hamstring) and Luke Bowanko were also labeled probable.
Jaguars defensive lineman Roy Miller is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday, according to the Florida Times-Union on Monday. Miller hopes that the surgeon is able to repair his torn meniscus instead of removing it.
Pierce (calf) is considered doubtful to play Sunday against the Chargers, Jaguars.com reports.
Pierce has been battling a calf injury for the last couple of weeks, and he was inactive for last Thursday's win over the Titans. The former Raven appears destined for a second straight inactive designation, though he likely wouldn't hold a major role in the offense, regardless.
Wide receiver Justin Blackmon , who hasn't practiced or played since 2013 after being suspended for the third time for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, is unlikely to return to the Jaguars according to GM David Caldwell, per ESPN.com.
The Jets enter Week 9 against the Chiefs relatively healthy. Out of 15 players listed on the injury report, Darrin Walls (calf, knee) was ruled doubtful for Sunday.Geno Smith (shoulder) was labeled questionable.
Decker (knee) caught four passes for 81 yards on 11 targets Sunday against the Texans.
With the Texans playing most of the game without their two top cornerbacks, it was disappointing that Decker was only able to catch four of his team-high 11 targets. In addition, the Jets were playing most of the second half from behind and the team was in heavy pass mode during that time. that said, this was only the second time all season he failed to score a TD. In addition, he's posted at least 79 receiving yards in four of his last five contests.
Coach Todd Bowles relayed Monday that Fitzpatrick (thumb) will remain the Jets' starting QB.
According to Bowles, in the wake of Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Texans, in which Fitzpatrick completed 19-of-39 passes for 216 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions, there was "not much" thought to making a change at QB. Next up for Fitzpatrick and the 5-5 Jets -- who have dropped two games in a row -- is a home tilt against the 4-6 Dolphins on Sunday.
Marshall (toe) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Marshall looks safe to roll with Sunday and is thus in line to continue to see his share of looks in the Jets' Week 12 offense. He's been targeted 10 times in each of his last two outings, about in line with his overall average of 10.7 on that front.
The Jets have lost two linebackers in a span of 24 hours, including strong-side backer Calvin Pace, who left practice Monday with a strained groin. The team has yet to reveal the severity of the injury, per ESPN.
