Lamar Jackson finally broke his silence to address his knee issue that's been plaguing him all season.
Unwritten in this tweet is that Jackson doesn't sound like he'll be back anytime should, should the Baltimore Ravens advance to the next round.
Jackson was not present at Ravens practice on Thursday. Tyler Huntley appears to be in line to be the starter for Baltimore this weekend; he threw during Thursday's session, something he didn't do last week.

With Tua Tagovailoa remaining in the NFL's concussion protocol, the Miami Dolphins are preparing to start rookie QB Skylar Thompson in the Wild Card round against the Buffalo Bills. Head coach Mike McDaniel remains mum on Tagovailoa's status after suffering a series of concussions this season, most recently on Christmas Day. Prayers up to Thompson, who faces a tough Buffalo defense this weekend. ??

The Carolina Panthers are ending the Baker Mayfield experiment. Mayfield asked the team for his release on Monday morning, and the team promptly granted it. Sam Darnold appears to be the clear-cut starter from now on, with PJ Walker in the wings. Mayfield was set to become a free agent in 2023, so there is no sense in keeping him around.
The Cleveland Browns traded Mayfield to the Panthers for a 2024 conditional fifth-round pick and a salary agreement after acquiring alleged predator Deshaun Watson.
As for a new home, the top choice obviously points to the San Francisco 49ers, having lost starter Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday to a broken foot. Other teams who could be interested (in my opinion) who could use a quarterback include Houston, New England, Indianapolis, New Orleans, or the Los Angeles Rams.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has been dealing with a hamstring injury for a couple of weeks, missing two games so far. Murray reportedly originally injured his hamstring at the end of October. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said on Tuesday that while Murray has made some progress, he's not quite ready to return to the field.
As a disappointing season for Arizona continues, backup QB Colt McCoy will get starting reps while Murray is out.
The Cardinals have the Los Angeles Chargers up next, followed by a Week 13 bye. It's very possible they wait until after the bye week to put Murray back in the line-up.

The Cleveland Browns ended their four-game losing streak against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. While Cincy was missing star wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, the offensive line was god awful and Joe Burrow had a horrible night as a result. The Browns sacked Burrow five times, intercepted him once and forced a fumble.
On the flip side, Browns QB Jacoby Brissett ran for a touchdown and threw for 278 yards, while Nick Chubb and Amari Cooper both had highlight-reel days.

It's what we've all been waiting for. While there has been no formal announcement from the team, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is listed as the No. 1 QB on the Pittsburgh Steelers' depth chart to start Week One.
The starting role was always Trubisky's to lose since Pittsburgh signed him to a two-year, $14.58 million contract this offseason. But, while Trubisky took most of the first-string reps this summer during training camp, it was suspected perhaps rookie (and only first-round QB selected in this year's draft) Kenny Pickett could overtake the role. Instead, Pickett is listed as No. 3 on the Steelers' first depth chart, behind Mason Rudolph, for some reason.
How long will the depth chart stay this way? It's a fair question. Head coach Mike Tomlin could announce otherwise before the Steelers' first game on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. If Trubisky struggles during the season, do they throw the keys to the rookie? I think Pickett will start a game this season before Rudolph, should they reach that point. But for now, it's wait and see.
