Falcons receiver Julio Jones has had a handful of limited practices since injuring his hamstring in Week One, including last Friday. He has missed most practices. He was out of practice again Wednesday. Jones caught nine passes for 157 yards in the opener, but his hamstring limited him in the three days of practice leading […]
Michael Thomas caught an NFL-record 149 passes last season. This season, the Saints receiver can’t catch a break. He has played only one game, making three receptions for 17 yards in the season opener. Saints coach Sean Payton said Wednesday morning that Thomas’ discipline for punching teammate Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is complete but remained uncertain about […]
Ezekiel Elliott still isn’t on the injury report, so an injury presumably doesn’t explain his sudden fumbling problem. But the Cowboys have an injury problem. They added pass rusher Aldon Smith to the practice report with a neck injury that kept him out Wednesday. Already missing starting quarterback Dak Prescott and starting tackles La'el Collins […]
Just six games into his rookie year, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is already getting close to an NFL record.

The rookie record is six 300-yard passing […]

Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski spiked the ball with his left hand after catching a touchdown last Sunday and said that his ailing right shoulder was the reason why he went that route. Gronkowski said his shoulder wasn’t giving him too much trouble, but it’s enough of an issue that the team had him sit […]
Bengals running back Joe Mixon left last Sunday’s game against the Colts in the first half with a foot injury, but was able to return after halftime of what turned out to be a 31-27 loss for his club. While Mixon’s foot was well enough for him to gut it out in a game situation, […]
The Texans are 1-5 and the trade deadline comes in less than two weeks, so it isn’t surprising to see players from the team have their names come up in trade chatter. It’s something that quarterback Deshaun Watson would like to see come to an end. Watson said on Wednesday that the whole team met […]
The winless Jets are continuing their fire sale, with linebacker Jordan Willis the latest player on the way out. The Jets are sending Willis to the 49ers, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The Raiders placed right tackle Trent Brown on the reserve/COVID-19 list today, but they may have a much bigger problem on their offensive line.

The Chargers are going to continue to be without running back Austin Ekeler a while longer.

Head coach Anthony Lynn said, […]

They will have 21 days to activate him to the roster. Daniels went on injured reserve Oct. 3. He injured his elbow in the […]
