Jason Pierre-Paul said he will not "shut it down" this season because of the injured right shoulder that has kept him out of the last two games, but that may just be semantics because the defensive end seems unlikely to play again this season. A second opinion on the injury showed no need for surgery, only rest he said, and with just three games remaining there may not be time for him to heal enough to get back on the field.
Washington Redskins rookie tight end Jordan Reed missed another day of practice and continues to undergo testing for ongoing headaches, which are believed to be in relation to a headache he suffered four weeks ago, Coach Mike Shanahan said. Reed, a third-round pick out of Florida, had emerged into a go-to receiving threat for the […]
Kyle Shanahan said he hopes Kirk Cousins plays very well so the team will have more options to trade him in the offseason.
IRVING, Texas -- The dominant version of DeMarcus Ware is on the way. “There is no doubt in my mind,” Ware said. “I know that for a fact.” Ware readily admits that this has been a disappointing season for him. He certainly isn’t satisfied with having a career-low six sacks and no forced fumbles for a Dallas Cowboys defense that ranks dead last in the league. However, Ware has the utmost confidence that he’ll return to being one of the most productive pass-rushers in NFL history while the Cowboys fight for a playoff berth over the final few weeks of the regular season.
So Kirk Cousins will be the Washington Redskins‘ starting quarterback for the rest of the season. Coach Mike Shanahan decided to shut down Robert Griffin III to avoid the risk of injury going into the offseason. Many believe that Cousins and Griffin are just pawns in a chess match between Shanahan and owner Daniel Snyder, but we wont get into that. I’ve said all year that Griffin needs reps against a live defense to help sort out his mechanical issues. But recently he’s shown little signs of improvement. While nothing can beat the experience of playing real games, maybe Griffin is...

IRVING, Texas -- Sean Lee was limited in practice for the second straight day with a neck injury, but the signs are that the Dallas Cowboys inside linebacker will play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Lee said he was hurt on the first play of the game and it locked up as the game went on. He was finally forced to leave the 45-28 loss to the Chicago Bears in the second half. "It’s just a muscle deal," Lee said. "But it wasn’t allowing me to do my job effectively in that game and it happened about three or four times.
Carolina over NY Jets I want to pick the Jets, but I just can't here. The Panthers do well what the Jets do well, and they do almost everything else better. Denver over San Diego Peyton Manning should take advantage of San Diego's pass defense the way his brother couldn't last week. Dallas over Green Bay My feeling on this game swings depending on whether Aaron Rodgers plays. I'm guessing he won't. Philadelphia over Minnesota The Vikings probably can't stop the Eagles. San Francisco over Tampa Bay I think the Bucs play a respectable game, but I don't think they can score enough to win. New...
