      Giants' Sterling Shepard: Reportedly unlikely to play
      6h ago

      Shepard is unlikely to play Sunday against Kansas City due to an illness, but he will be evaluated during pregame warmups, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

      Shepard was a full participant in practice all week, but was added to the injury report Saturday after coming down with the illness. Roger Lewis and Tavarres King would presumably benefit in targets should Shepard ultimately sit out, while Evan Engram could see even more looks at tight end.

      9h ago

      Sims (calf) was waived by the Bengals on Saturday.

      Sims had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a calf injury -- it was going to be his second straight missed contest. Instead, the Bengals opted to release the veteran in order to promote linebacker Hardy Nickerson to the active roster. Sims has recorded 19 tackles (six solo) and zero sacks through eight games this season.

      The Bengals needed to add some depth to their linebacking corps with Kevin Minter (elbow) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Nickerson has played in seven games with the Bengals so far this season, but is used far more often on special teams than he is on defense.

    • Jameis Winston TB QB
      Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Received PRP injection for shoulder
      19h ago

      Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Friday that Winston received a platelet-rich plasma injection about a week ago to address the AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder.

      Winston has begun light rehab activities for the shoulder injury, but has yet to resume practicing and will miss his second straight game Sunday against the Dolphins, paving the way for Ryan Fitzpatrick to draw another start at quarterback. It's expected that Winston will be reevaluated Monday, at which point he could be cleared to increase his activity. Even if Winston is able to get back on the practice field next week, it's far from a given that he would be able to play in the Buccaneers' subsequent contest Nov. 26 against the Falcons. In addition to managing the injury, Winston is also being invested by the NFL for an allegation that he groped an Uber driver in March 2016, according to a report that was first issued Friday by BuzzFeed. Depending on the findings of the investigation, Winston could be subject to discipline from the league.

    • Kellen Clemens LAC QB
      Chargers' Kellen Clemens: Won't start Week 11
      1d ago

      Clemens will remain in a backup role for the Chargers' game Sunday against the Bills after starting quarterback Philip Rivers (concussion) received clearance from an independent neurologist Friday to play in the Week 11 matchup, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

      Rivers is still listed as questionable on the Chargers' injury report, but that's just a formality at this point since he had remained in the concussion protocol at the time the report was released. Sunday will mark the 195th consecutive start of Rivers' career, with that remarkable durability limiting Clemens to a combined 10 pass attempts over his three-plus seasons with the Chargers.

      Chargers' Philip Rivers: Clears protocol, will start Sunday
      1d ago

      Rivers, who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Friday, putting him in line to start for the Chargers in Week 11, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

      Rivers was diagnosed with the head injury following the Week 10 overtime loss to the Jaguars, but given that he's been able to steer clear of concussions throughout his career, the Chargers were optimistic all along that he would be able to avoid an absence. With Rivers practicing fully Friday and an independent neurologist giving the quarterback the green light to make his 195th consecutive NFL start Sunday, Kellen Clemens will remain his familiar backup role.

    • Paxton Lynch DEN QB
      Broncos' Paxton Lynch: Practice participation to dictate Week 11 status
      1d ago

      Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said Friday that Lynch's performance during practice this week would dictate whether or not the quarterback is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

      Lynch has been inactive the entire season while recovering from an injury to his right shoulder that he originally suffered in training camp. That has allowed either current starter Brock Osweiler or Trevor Siemian to act as the top backup through the team's nine contests, but with Lynch having worked with the second unit in practice this week, it appears he could displace Siemian for those duties in Week 11. Osweiler hasn't been overly impressive in his two starts since displacing Siemian, so it's conceivable that Lynch could soon ascend to the top spot on the depth chart, particularly if the Broncos fade further from the playoff picture.

    • Kellen Clemens LAC QB
      Chargers' Kellen Clemens: Still in mix for Week 11 start
      2d ago

      With Philip Rivers having yet to clear the NFL's concussion protocol and listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Clemens remains a possibility to start the contest, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

      Rivers was able to practice fully Friday and is seemingly trending toward suiting up this week, but he'll need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist by Saturday in order to guarantee his availability for the home date with the Bills. As the backup to the historically durable Rivers the last three-plus seasons, Clemens has been limited to just 10 total passing attempts. The lack of recent work makes Clemens little more than a speculative play in two-quarterback formats, with the Chargers perhaps opting for a more ground-oriented offensive attack in the event Rivers is sidelined.

    • Russell Wilson SEA QB
      Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Admits jaw injury was painful
      2d ago

      Wilson (jaw) said he couldn't eat solid foods for a few days after last Thursday's 22-16 win over the Cardinals, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

      Wilson also had to wear a special mouthguard and couldn't really talk, having narrowly avoided an injury that might have required doctors to wire his jaw shut. Of course, the bigger story here is the NFL's investigation of the Seahawks for violating the concussion protocol in the aftermath of the hit that caused the jaw injury. There still haven't been any reports that Wilson was diagnosed with concussion symptoms, which ultimately could work in the team's favor. In any case, Wilson surely appreciates the long layoff between games as he prepares for Monday Night Football matchup with the Falcons. He was a full participant at Thursday's practice and should be fine for Week 11.

      12h ago

      Lacy (groin) was absent from Saturday's injury report and is in line to play Monday night against the Falcons, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

      Lacy missed last Thursday's win over the Cardinals with a groin injury but is now set to return to the field Monday night after logging full practices throughout the week. While he could take over starting responsibilities from Thomas Rawls, it seems more likely that the pair will split carries considering they're both averaging around eight carries per game this season.

      Ward (knee) was absent from the Falcons' injury report and is in line to play Monday against the Seahawks, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

      Ward was limited in practice Thursday due to a knee injury but will take the field Monday night. Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been ruled out of the contest, which will make Tevin Coleman the lead back and Ward the No. 2 option. As long as he remains healthy, Ward seems likely to see increased action Monday night given the Falcons' dual-back playing style.

      Freeman will be sidelined for Monday's showdown with the Seahawks after suffering a concussion last Sunday against the Cowboys. The 25-year-old back has a history of concussions throughout his career, with this being his second on the year. Now that he is officially out, look for Tevin Coleman to carry the load Monday night, with Terron Ward taking over as the No. 2 option in the backfield.

      Woodhead (hamstring) is eligible to play Sunday against the Packers after being activated off the IR-R on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

      Woodhead injured his hamstring in Week 1 and has been sidelined since. The Ravens seemed optimistic regarding the veteran running back's status throughout the week, so this news does not come as too much of a surprise. He has been practicing with the team for two weeks, but it remains to be seen what type of workload he will see in his return. Javorius Allen figures to see his role as the prime pass-catching back take the biggest hit in Woodhead's return.

      Seahawks' Eddie Lacy: Puts in full practice Friday
      1d ago

      Lacy (groin) logged a full practice Friday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.

      Prior to the Seahawks' first practice of the week Thursday, head coach Pete Carroll intimated that Lacy would be able to return from a one-game absence Monday against the Falcons, and the running back's full session Friday seemingly validates that sentiment. Assuming he incurs no setbacks prior to the Week 11 matchup, Lacy might take back starting duties from Thomas Rawls, but the two could end up splitting the carries in a fairly even fashion unless one one of the backs performs dramatically better than the other early on in the contest.

      Jones (ankle) was absent from the Falcons' injury report and is in line to play Monday night against the Seahawks, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

      Jones was held out of practice Thursday as the wideout continued to battle a nagging ankle injury. However, he was able to take the field the past two days and, barring any major setbacks, should be set for the Monday night showdown. Jones played last week against the Cowboys after missing practices during the week. He'll look to do the same this week against a battered Seahawks secondary that will be without Kam Chancellor (neck) and Richard Sherman (Achilles).

      Wheaton only saw two snaps in the Bears' Week 10 loss to the Packers after coming off a three-game absence due to injury. However, head coach John Fox indicated there is "no doubt" Wheaton is more prepared to contribute in Week 11 after another week of practice under his belt. Still, the 26-year-old is fourth on the Bears' receiving depth chart, and the team figures to rely on their ground game going forward.

      Westbrook (abdomen) will join the Jaguars' 53-man roster after being activated off injured reserve Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

      With Allen Hurns out this week, Westbrook should return to action as the No. 3 receiver on the Jaguars' depth chart. While the rookie has high expectations for his NFL debut, stating he expects a 200-yard receiving game, the team is likely to ease him into the swing of things. Expected non-ideal weather in Cleveland should force an already run-heavy team to rely even more on their ground game. However, Westbrook shined in the preseason, and figures to have plenty of opportunities in the passing game going forward.

      With Arrelious Benn landing on injured reserve and Jaelen Strong getting released, the Jaguars needed to boost their receiving depth. Pinkard will presumably mainly play a special teams role in his NFL debut Sunday versus the Browns, but he could see some snaps on offense if there are some injuries ahead of him on the depth chart.

      The knee injury never presented much concern about Graham's availability for Monday's matchup with the Falcons, but the tight end's full practice Thursday likely removes any doubt that he'll play in Week 11. Graham hasn't cracked the 60-yard barrier in any of his last five outings, but has made up for it by being quarterback Russell Wilson's go-to option in the red zone. He's racked up six touchdowns on 13 red-zone targets over that span.

      Hauschka was added to the Bills' injury report after the sore right hip limited his participation in Thursday's practice, but the kicker's full practice a day later clears up any concern about his health.

      2d ago

      Santos (groin) met with the Bears on Thursday, but it doesn't appear the team will offer him a contract, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

      Santos served as the Chiefs' kicker the last three seasons and opened the 2017 campaign with Kansas City, converting all three of his field-goal attempts and all 12 of his extra-point tries in three games before he was waived/injured by the team Sept. 30 while he was dealing with an adductor strain of his groin. Though he's now believed to be fully healthy, the Bears likely weren't motivated to make a change at kicker after Connor Barth submitted his best performance of the season in the Week 10 loss to Green Bay, converting field-goal tries from 45, 44 and 49 yards amid soggy conditions. With the injury behind him, Santos could end up latching on elsewhere before long, given that he was one of the league's better kickers in 2016, ranking fifth in the NFL with an 88.6 percent success rate on field goals while garnering touchbacks on 55.8 percent of his kickoffs.

      That likely means Hauschka will kick during Friday's practice session, so even if he ends up with a questionable designation, it sounds like the veteran will be good to go for the Week 11 matchup. If he does carry an injury designation, Hauschka's status is worth verifying Sunday, given that the Bills and Chargers will kick off following the early wave of games.
