Jets miss wide receiver Eric Decker

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Eric Decker was ready to go at game time, but by the time the Jets trailed to the Bears at halftime, he felt a familiar tightness in his hamstring. The team's No. 1 wide receiver watched from the sideline as the Jets ultimately lost 27-19 to the Bears in a "Monday Night Football" game at MetLife Stadium. "Just tightened up on me and wanted to be smart," Decker said. "A few plays and just decided it was best to step aside and pull myself out.

Gerald McCoy back at practice, Mason Foster still out

Gerald McCoy is back at practice -- and that's where the good news ends. Injury updates! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got back to practicing today, after the debacle that was Thursday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons. So, good news: Gerald McCoy was back at practice. Bad news: defensive ends William Gholston and Michael Johnson were out, as was Mason Foster. All of that per Roy Cummings. Johnson was technically active against the Falcons, but only played six snaps. Gholston may have suffered a setback as he did play a decent amount on Thursday, while Foster is still dealing with a...

Vikings support Bridgewater; Ponder moves up

Teddy Bridgewater takes over as Vikings quarterback this week, and his teammates issued their support for him on Monday as they filtered through the locker room. “We’re confident in Teddy — he’s a good quarterback, and we’ll keep improving,” said tight end Rhett Ellison. Christian Ponder now moves to the backup position, with starter Matt Cassel sidelined because of a broken left foot. When Cassel left Sunday’s game in New Orleans, Ponder was inactive, so the Vikings had no backup. “It’s scary when you’re not dressed,” Ponder said. “It’s like, ‘Who’s going to be...

Vincent Jackson suffered wrist fracture, won't miss time

Vincent Jackson suffered wrist fracture, won't miss time

Vincent Jackson isn't healthy, but should still play. According to Fox Sports' Ross Jones, wide receiver Vincent Jackson sustained a wrist fracture against the Atlanta Falcons, but will not miss any time. Minor injuries like that can certainly reduce player's effectiveness, however, which is not something the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can use with their struggling offense. After posting two seasons with over 1,200 receiving yards since joining the Bucs in 2012, Jackson has been awfully quiet this season, posting just 10 catches for 102 yards on 25 targets. That is in part due to Josh McCown and...

Detroit Lions Stephen Tulloch out for season with torn ACL

ALLEN PARK — Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch will be out for the season after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Sunday’s win over the Green Bay Packers. Coach Jim Caldwell confirmed the injury at his Monday press conference. Tulloch sacked Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter, jumped up and celebrated imitating the discount double-check and then falling over. He got up and was back on the field, but two plays later he was down. He didn’t return in the game. Caldwell talked to Tulloch after the game. "As spirited as he is, guys will always be a bit disillusioned...

Quotes from Seattle coach Pete Carroll

Here's the transcript of what Seattle coach Pete Carroll had to say to the media today following the team's 26-20 win over Denver Sunday: (Opening statement) That was good looking film. We played really hard on defense. I was anxious to see if we would play and look like we played back in the Super Bowl against these guys as far as breaking on the ball and running and hitting. I thought we did better. I really thought that we played routes better and some things that they threw at us. The perimeter screen game, that’s really phenomenal for them, we just really eliminated it. The guys did a...

Kyle Fuller, Ryan Mundy INTs give Bears’ defense a lift vs. Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — In the Bears’ first two games, Chris Conte and Kyle Fuller combined for four of the prettiest interceptions you’ll ever see. But on Monday night, Bears safety Ryan Mundy just happened to be at the right place at the right time — and made it count. On the New York Jets’ second play from scrimmage, quarterback Geno Smith faked a screen and threw to a space, and Mundy just happened to be filling it. Smith hit Mundy between the “2”...
