Nagy: Jordan Howard needs more carries

18 September 2018

Bears coach Matt Nagy said Jordan Howard needs "probably a few more carries." When speaking about Howard's limited fourth quarter workload -- he received just two carries and one target in Monday's fourth quarter -- Nagy said, "I think probably a few more carries is probably the answer to that." The coach also mentioned that the Bears need to be playing with a lead for Howard to get the "typical 8-10 fourth quarter carries." Howard is alrea ...

Jets work out free agent OT Will Beatty

18 September 2018

Jets worked out free agent OT Will Beatty. ESPN originally reported Beatty worked out for the Giants but quickly corrected its mistake. Now 33, Beatty has not made an NFL start since 2014. He has just seven appearances over the past three seasons. It's hard to see how he would make anything better in New York. Beatty was part of a large group of linemen to work out on Tuesday.

Redskins reserve RB Rob Kelley lands on IR

18 September 2018

Redskins placed RB Rob Kelley on injured reserve with a toe injury. Kelley was injured in Sunday's loss to the Colts. It sounds like he will be a candidate for return. Kelley must sit at least eight games. Samaje Perine will slot in as the Redskins' No. 3 back.

Liuget suing ex-trainer over PED suspension

18 September 2018

Suspended Chargers DT Corey Liuget is suing his ex-trainer, blaming him for his PED ban. Liuget is seeking $15 million in damages. He alleges his ex-trainer told him he was using a "high dose of an over-the-counter, anti-inflammatory" to treat Liuget's foot pain. Instead, according to Liuget, it was a banned substance. Liuget will return to the Bolts in Week 5.

Bengals extend K Randy Bullock through 2020

18 September 2018

Bengals signed K Randy Bullock to a two-year extension through 2020. It's a rare bit of good kicking news in what's been a dark week for the position. The Bengals' kicker since midway through 2016, Bullock has converted an elite 90 percent of his field goal attempts in the Queen City.

Jordan Matthews works out for Eagles Tuesday

18 September 2018

Free agent WR Jordan Matthews worked out for the Eagles on Tuesday. The Eagles are running low on bodies at receiver, and Matthews is an #OldFriend. His addition would be mixed news for Nelson Agholor, who would maybe have to spend less time in the slot.

Falcons lose LG Levitre to triceps injury

18 September 2018

Falcons placed LG Andy Levitre on injured reserve with a triceps injury, ending his season. Levitre isn't as big of a loss as he would have been in the past — he took a pay cut in March — but it's still a major blow for a Falcons that's been bitten hard by the injury bug in the early going. The Falcons must now move forward with Wes Schweitzer as a starter. He was a liability in 2017. It's bad news for the Falcons' running game. Now 32, Levitre will be a free agent ...

Carson remains atop Seahawks' depth chart

18 September 2018

Chris Carson remains atop the Seahawks' running back depth chart for Week 3. "Gassed" from playing special teams — really (at least according to coach Pete Carroll) — Carson did not touch the ball in the second half of Monday's dispiriting loss to the Bears. Any time Carroll opens his mouth, he signs Carson's praises, but the usage has not matched the verbiage so far this season. Carson will be a risky, low-end FLEX play for Week 3 against the Cowboys. ...

Vikes bring back Tom Johnson on one-year deal

18 September 2018

Vikings signed DT Tom Johnson to a one-year, $1 million contract. Johnson can earn another $500,000 through incentives. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the Vikes are eyeing Johnson as their "top reserve" on the interior after he started 15 games a season ago. Johnson was released by the Seahawks over the weekend.

Ground and pound: G-Men sign FB Elijhaa Penny

Giants signed FB Elijhaa Penny.

'Good chance' Jay Ajayi (back) sits Week 3?

18 September 2018

NBC Sports Philadelphia reports Eagles OC Mike Groh "indicated there's a good chance" Jay Ajayi (back) sits Week 3. We are a bit surprised by the interpretation, as Groh termed RB Josh Adams' promotion from the practice squad a "precautionary measure." It definitely sounds like Ajayi is going to miss some practice time this week. That's nothing new. We would consider Ajayi on the right side of questiona ...

McDermott, Frazier to 'collaborate' on calls

18 September 2018

Bills coach Sean McDermott and DC Leslie Frazier are expected to "collaborate" on the team's defensive calls going forward. McDermott took over play-calling duties midway through Sunday's blowout loss to the Chargers. Speaking Monday, he tiptoed around whether the move would be permanent. "We're going to do whatever it takes to win," McDermott said. "Sometimes you're able to get into a flow. Someti ...

Rosenhaus: Antonio Brown does not want trade

18 September 2018

Antonio Brown's agent insists his client does not want a trade and says his Monday absence was related to a "personal matter." "I talked to the team about it," rep Drew Rosenhaus said. "His issue was unrelated to the tweet or his relationship with the team." We actually take Rosenhaus at face value that Brown does not want to be traded. His tweet was clearly just a frustrated player blowing off steam to a Twitter troll. As for Brown's Monda ...

Tomlin confirms Brown was absent Monday

18 September 2018

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Antonio Brown was not present on Monday. Tomlin refused to say if the absence was excused, but it did not sound as if it was. The coach added Brown has not requested a trade despite his, "Trade me let’s find out," tweet on Monday -- reading that tweet as a trade request was always a major stretch. The coach said he hopes to meet with Brown on Tuesday to discuss the situation and the tweet. Despite all the drama, it would ...

Jarvis Landry (knee) limited again on Tuesday

18 September 2018

Jarvis Landry (knee) was limited during Tuesday's practice. Landry was also limited on Monday. It seems like the Browns are just taking it easy on Landry in a short week. It would be a surprise if he is not ready to face the Jets on Thursday night.

Hue: We need to get Duke Johnson more touches

18 September 2018

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Duke Johnson needs to get more touches moving forward. Johnson has touched the ball just 11 times on offense through two games. Jackson said the running back is one of their best playmakers and needs to touch the ball more, but it is tough to trust that will happen. Johnson needs to be relegated to fantasy benches for the time being.

Wilks expects Larry Fitzgerald to play Week 3

18 September 2018

Cardinals coach Steve Wilks expects Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) to play Week 3 against the Bears. The coach said he had to "help Larry help himself" by holding him out of the fourth quarter in Week 2, but it is unlikely Fitzgerald will allow himself to be sidelined this week. "We all know that it’s going to be tough to keep Larry off the field," Wilks said. "We’re going to do everything we can to make sure he is ready to go on Sunday with t ...

Report: Antonio Brown skipped work Monday

18 September 2018

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Antonio Brown did not report for meetings and film review on Monday. Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac temper the report by saying they are not sure if the absence was excused, but it is still notable considering it came a day after Brown got into it with coaches on the sideline. Brown also tweeted, "Trade me let’s find out," on Monday in response to a tweet from a former Steelers employee questioning how good he would be witho ...

Russell Wilson flops on MNF, pads stats late

18 September 2018

Russell Wilson completed 22-of-36 passes for 226 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Seahawks' 24-17, Week 2 loss to the Bears on Monday night. He rushed for just 17 yards and fumbled twice, losing one. Wilson entered the fourth quarter with 69 passing yards and went into halftime with 68 through the air. He took six sacks for the second-straight week to open the season and continues to hold onto the ball far too long in an attempt to create offense for ...

Chris Carson doesn't get a touch in 2nd half

18 September 2018

Chris Carson rushed six times for 24 yards in the Seahawks' 24-17, Week 2 loss to the Bears on Monday night. Carson didn't catch his lone target. Carson rushed on the first three plays of the game, picking up 13 yards. He received another three carries before the break but appeared to be benched after halftime in favor of a Mike Davis-Rashaad Penny combo. Carson didn't appear to suffer an injury and remained in uniform with his helmet on. This comes six days after c ...
