The New York Jets are a hot mess, but have no fear, their starting quarterback Sam Darnold should be able to practice on Wednesday, thus ending all concerns with the state of the team.
Darnold will be limited on Wednesday, and his status for Sunday will be dependent on how he responds throughout the week.
THANK GOD. Get our lord and savior Joe Flacco off this team and let him hold the clipboard like we all intended. He deserves better than this.*
*unless he starts this week, and then, GO JETS
I am highly confident we will be watching Derrick Henry highlights for the rest of our lives. Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin feels the same, as he will have to focus on stopping the versatile running back this week when his team faces the Tennessee Titans.
This is already one of my favorite games of the week. Pittsburgh's defense has been playing lights out, and the same goes for the Titans' offense.
In today's edition of, "Is Jerry Jones watching a different game than us?":
Jones said on his radio show today (Tuesday) that he's "ok" with his defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. No, no. It gets worse. Jones also said he liked how the Dallas Cowboys' defense "came out."
Quick reminder that the Cowboys' defense gave up 38 points to the Arizona Cardinals, most of them unanswered.
Jerry just looooves to waste talent (see: Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and we can even go as far back to say Tony Romo) and defend people that he hires who aren't performing how they should. The real problem is, and has been, the front office.
Stop me if you've heard this one before but New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman has been out since Week Two with an injury. He'll return to the Jets' lineup this week.
This is very perplexing for me because on one hand, the Jets finally get another weapon available. On the other, do we remember the last time Joe Flacco had to throw to Perriman? It didn't go well.
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
It feels like forever since the Tennessee Titans have played football, and that's because it has been. The only positive to this, aside from attempting to screw up the NFL season for the rest of us, is that they had extra time for injured players to get healthy. Wide receiver AJ Brown and left tackle Taylor Lewan are expected to play tonight.
Brown has been missing in action with a knee injury since Week One, while Lewan was listed as questionable on the injury report with a shoulder injury.
No punishment has been dealt for the team's outbreak situation (and holding practices off-campus despite being told not to). The Titans are benefitting from the extra time off, though, by getting back two key players.
If you've been living under a rock - Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott went down in Sunday's game with a gruesome broken ankle, had surgery right away, and is currently recovering at home. -deep breath-
As he's obviously missing the remainder of this season, the question is when will he be ready to return to action, and will it be with the Cowboys? Owner Jerry Jones stated earlier this morning on his radio show that he expects Prescott to return by the spring offseason program.
Jerry Jones is for sure not a doctor (and is severely out of touch), and who knows what uniform he will be in when he does return to action, but this is a reasonable timetable for Prescott. He's refused a team-friendly deal before, and with quarterback play around the league always dwindling, it's hard for me to believe he'll take one now.
In the meantime, Cowboys plan to roll with andy dalton
Because all 2020 needed was Andy Dalton, he will now be the starting quarterback for the Cowboys, and the team does not plan to trade for a QB.
Dalton is not in the worst situation to be in when it comes to backup quarterbacks. While I'm not recommending running out to buy a Dalton Cowboys jersey, he can get it done in this trash division.
Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Davon Godchaux is in danger of missing the remainder of the 2020 NFL season with a biceps injury, according to NFL Network.
The second opinion should determine the severity of the injury and how much time he may miss. This is a big loss for Miami; Godchaux hasn't missed a game since 2018.
After Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a gruesome, season-ending injury yesterday, questions arose about his contract and the Cowboys' future plans for him. Stephen Jones insisted that Prescott remained the "face of the franchise" and that their plans for his future with the team have not changed, despite the injury.
The Cowboys have been quite facetious in the past about their plans for Prescott, despite him being one of the top-performing quarterbacks in the league, so forgive me if I'm not buying this right now.
I wanna flag this tweet and we'll go back to it in March.
Jacksonville Jaguars safety Josh Jones was ejected from Sunday's matchup against the Houston Texans, but is not expected to miss any more time due to a suspension.
Like Pelissero mentioned, it is likely Jones will be fined.
The Los Angeles Rams flew across the country to visit the Washington Football Team, who still don't have a real name, and beat the pants off of them, 30-10. But that wasn't the top story of the day in Landover.
Aside from former starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins being benched for Kyle Allen (and then staying home because he had a sick tummy), ears were raised when Washington announced that Alex Smith would be the backup. Fast forward a little while to game-time. Allen endures a helmet-to-helmet shot from Rams CB Jalen Ramsey and is out of the game. Next up? Smith.
I'm not going to go through the whole Smith-injury story. While it's a great comeback and good for him and all that jazz, if you're like me, you're watching through your fingers, hoping no one hits him.
Rams QB Jared Goff took some time to speak on Smith's comeback, calling it "amazing."
