New York Jets (3-9) at Buffalo Bills (4-8) 1pm ET, CBS One of the worst games of the day, and yet something worth watching in a battle between two rookie quarterbacks holding the hopes of these two franchises on their shoulders and fighting through injuries: Jets QB Sam Darnold who is likely to play this week after missing the last three games with a foot injury and Bills QB Josh Allen who missed four games earlier this season with an elbow injury.

RB Doug Martin a go, C.J. Anderson inactive vs. Steelers

Panthers kicker Graham Gano won’t play vs. Browns

Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano is expected to miss the team’s Week 14 clash against the Cleveland Browns due to injury.

Graham Gano misses practice; ruled out for Panthers-Browns

The Panthers signed an extra kicker to replace Gano against the Browns. The Panthers were back on the field today in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Browns.

Looking like more than insurance.— Joe Person (@josephperson) December 7, 2018 RR says Gano has been dealing with a sore knee. Was...

Injury report: Kerryon Johnson OUT, 8 Lions—including Stafford—questionable

The Lions’ star rookie running back is out for a third straight week. The Detroit Lions aren’t exactly in good health heading to Arizona this week to take on the Cardinals. In their final Friday injury report, 10 different players were given gameday designations. Most importantly, rookie running back Kerryon Johnson is OUT for the third straight game with a knee injury he suffered against the Carolina Panthers. That means it will be all LeGarrette Blount, who our own Kyle Yost thinks could be a good fantasy play this week. Also out is linebacker Trevor Bates. Bates is dealing with an...

Greg Olsen to finish season on Injured Reserve

Olsen re-injured the same foot that has been troubling him since September 2017 Greg Olsen is headed to the Carolina Panthers injured reserve list for the second consecutive season. He fractured his right foot against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2 of last season. That earned him his first placement on the injured reserve list in his NFL career. He re-fractured that same foot in Week 1 of this season against the Dallas Cowboys. Yesterday’s injury was to that same foot once again. There is no word at this time as to whether or not he will need further surgery. Olsen at least knew that his...

Detroit Lions placing LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin on injured reserve

The Lions’ young linebacker will miss the final four games with a pestering neck injury. Another Detroit Lions player’s season is over a month before the regular season ends. Matt Patricia announced on Wednesday that second-year linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin is being placed on injured reserve because of a neck injury. Reeves-Maybin has had a nagging neck injury since Week 9. He was able to play against the Panthers and last week against the Rams, but clearly the injury was too much for him to play through for the remaining four games. It’s a disappointing end to an underwhelming...

Raiders sign CB Benwikere, place Reggie Nelson on IR

Continuing a busy couple days of roster moves, the Raiders have sent safety Reggie Nelson to injured reserve. Replacing him on the roster is veteran corner back Bene Benwikere. Nelson suffered the injury in Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. Benwickere is a 5-year veteran NFL cornerback. He was a 5th round selection by the Carolina Panthers in 2014 and spent his first three seasons with the Panthers.

Falcons coaches will get fired but don’t expect Dan Quinn to be among them

There’s injuries but injuries don’t explain all the poor play. Mike McCarthy was the head coach of the Green Bay Packers since 2006. He brought the team to the playoffs in 9 of 12 seasons and even won a Super Bowl. He was just fired midseason. A lot more goes into decisions than the record. The Carolina Panthers, flirting with a wildcard spot just a few weeks ago, just fired a number of defensive coaches. Their 6-6 record isn’t bad, but their play has been. Uninspiring play is definitely attributed to poor coaching, a lack of player development, and poor play-calling. It’s more than...

Bucs-Panthers Recap: The Andrew Adams Show

Andrew Adams’ three interceptions helped Tampa Bay to a 24-17 home victory. After breaking a four-game losing streak with a dominant win last week against the 49ers, the Buccaneers welcomed the Carolina Panthers to Raymond James Stadium on Sunday. Lavonte David returned from injury, but Tampa Bay was left short-handed in the secondary. Brent Grimes, Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart were all inactive, essentially leaving the defense to its fifth, sixth and seventh corners.

Open thread: Who will be the Player of the Game in Lions-Rams?

Who do you think will emerge as the player of the game in Week 13? While the Detroit Lions haven’t been great in the past few weeks, they’ve gotten a few individual performances worth praise. Kerryon Johnson was having himself a hell of a day before suffering a knee injury against the Panthers. Damon Harrison had a career-high 1.5 sacks against the Bears last week. Kenny Golladay continues to make highlight-reel catches on a weekly basis. So while the outlook for Sunday’s game against the 10-1 Los Angeles Rams, there is a pretty good chance we see a good individual performance or two...

Seahawks-49ers injury report: Tre Madden doubtful, Prosise hurt again

The injury report for the Seattle Seahawks against the San Francisco 49ers is a rather pleasant one. For starters, Doug Baldwin and Bradley McDougald aren’t on the list whatsoever, so they’re good to go for Sunday. In fact, only five players in total have some sort of injury designation. Listed as questionable is DT Shamar Stephen, who’s battling a foot injury. Doubtful are fullback Tre Madden, who hurt his chest on that 28-yard catch he made against the Carolina Panthers, and safety Shalom Luani, who’s dealing with a quadriceps problem.
