NFL Recent Player News
|10/17/2017||DeMarco Murray, Ten, RB|
|Murray will play in Week 7 despite having a tight hamstring.
Analysis: He was seen limping on the field Monday night and ended up with seven fewer carries than Derrick Henry. The injury along with Henry rushing for 131 yards Monday would seem to make Murray a less attractive option this week, especially against a Browns defense which has been good against the run.
|10/17/2017||Josh Lambo, Jax, K|
|The Jags signed Lambo to replace the ineffective Jason Myers.
Analysis: Lambo made 54 of 64 field goals (81.2 percent) and 70 of 78 extra points (89.7 percent) in two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers cut Lambo in September and went with rookie Younghoe Koo, who has since been released. Lambo was 2 for 2 in the preseason, with a longest of 53 yards. He will make his debut Sunday at Indianapolis.
|10/17/2017||Jason Myers, Jax, K|
|The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with Myers, waiving him two days after he hooked two 54-yard field goals in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Analysis: Myers missed 12 extra points and 15 field goals in 38 career games. He was 0 for 3 from beyond 50 yards this season.
|10/16/2017||Jonnu Smith, Ten, TE|
|Jonnu Smith had one reception for 10 yards Monday in the Tennessee Titans' 36-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts.|
|10/16/2017||Kamar Aiken, Ind, WR|
|Kamar Aiken had two receptions for 21 yards Monday in the Indianapolis Colts' 36-22 loss to the Tennessee Titans.|
|10/16/2017||Robert Turbin, Ind, RB|
|Robert Turbin ran for three yards on three carries Monday in the Indianapolis Colts' 36-22 loss to the Tennessee Titans. He added four receptions for 37 yards.
Analysis: Turbin suffered a left elbow injury late in the fourth quarter and coach Chuck Pagano said he will get an MRI exam on his elbow. It would be very surprising if Turbin didn't miss an extended period.
|10/16/2017||Marlon Mack, Ind, RB|
|Marlon Mack ran for 18 yards on two carries Monday in the Indianapolis Colts' 36-22 loss to the Tennessee Titans.|
|10/16/2017||Arik Armstead, SF, DT|
|Armstead broke his hand during the 49ers' loss in Washington and will need surgery, coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday.
Analysis: Armstead, a first-round pick in 2015, will miss significant time for a second straight season after having shoulder surgery that cost him the final eight games of 2016. He may go on injured reserve, where he would join fellow defensive ends Tank Carradine (ankle) and Ronald Blair (wrist).
|10/16/2017||Dustin Hopkins, Was, K|
|Hopkins has been placed on injured reserve due to a rotator muscle strain in his right hip.
Analysis: Nick Rose has been signed to take over the kicking duties from Hopkins, who could return late in the season. Hopkins is 9 for 11 on field goal tries while making 12 of 13 PAT attempts so far in 2017.
|10/16/2017||Aaron Rodgers, GB, QB|
|Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Rodgers will have surgery on his broken right collarbone, and that his season could be over.
Analysis: McCarthy said Monday that the two-time NFL MVP would have surgery in the near future. He says that there is no timeline for his potential return. "The key is to get Aaron healthy, it's not to develop a timeline," McCarthy said. Rodgers got hurt in the first quarter of the 23-10 loss on Sunday at Minnesota. Brett Hundley is now the starting quarterback.
|10/16/2017||Jordan Matthews, Buf, WR|
|Matthews has had the cast removed from his broken right thumb, though it remains uncertain when the starter can begin practicing.
Analysis: Coach Sean McDermott listed Matthews as day to day on Monday, when Buffalo held a brief practice upon returning from its bye week. McDermott said it was premature to determine whether Matthews would be cleared for practice this week or potentially play against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
|10/16/2017||NaVorro Bowman, Oak, LB|
|Bowman has agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Raiders.
Analysis: Bowman earned first team All-Pro honors four times in his career, achieving it from 2011-13 and then again in 2015 after coming back from a devastating knee injury. Bowman then tore his Achilles tendon early last season and missed most of the year before coming back again this year. While he lacks some of the speed he had when he was younger, Bowman still could probably help a team at age 29.
|10/16/2017||Jonathan Allen, Was, DT|
|Allen has a Lisfranc sprain in his foot and will miss some time, according to coach Jay Gruden.
Analysis: Allen could miss three or four weeks, Gruden said while providing injury updates Monday. Allen's injury pushes second-year lineman Anthony Lanier into an expanded role.
|10/16/2017||Rob Kelley, Was, RB|
|Kelley will practice this week ahead of Monday's game in Philadelphia.
Analysis: Kelley began the season as Washington's top back, and his return could come at a good time with Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine struggling mightily last week against the 49ers, combining for 56 yards on 25 carries.
|10/16/2017||Trevor Siemian, Den, QB|
|Siemian, who left Sunday's loss to the Giants briefly near the end of the second quarter with a left shoulder injury, is expected to start Sunday against the Chargers.
Analysis: Siemian, who threw for a career-best 376 yards as the Broncos' rally against the Giants came up short, next faces a Chargers team which ranks fourth in the NFL against the pass, yielding 186 yards per game.
|10/16/2017||Case Keenum, Min, QB|
|Keenum will be back under center, starting for the Vikings in their Week 7 matchup with the Ravens.
Analysis: Keenum made his fourth start of the season this past Sunday against Green Bay with Sam Bradford ailing, throwing for 239 yards with a touchdown and interception with one of his top receivers (Stefon Diggs) out. The Ravens are fifth in the NFL against the pass, yielding an average of 189.5 yards and are second in the league with nine interceptions.
|10/16/2017||Mohamed Sanu, Atl, WR|
|Sanu (hamstring) is expected to return to practice this week after not practicing at all last week and not playing against Miami.
Analysis: Sanu was originally expected to be sidelined two to three weeks when he was injured in Week 4. He has 16 catches for 163 yards and a touchdown in four games this season.
|10/16/2017||Emmanuel Sanders, Den, WR|
|Sanders will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers with a sprained ankle.
Analysis: Sanders wasn't putting up great numbers with the Broncos struggling to find consistency from the quarterback position, but he's still a solid play in the right matchup when he returns.
|10/16/2017||Jameis Winston, TB, QB|
|Winston (shoulder) reportedly will not throw again until later this week, and it still remains unclear if he will play Sunday.
Analysis: Winston left the field early in last Sunday's second quarter holding his right arm limp after throwing three consecutive incomplete passes and didn't return, though it was reported he could've returned. Former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick came in following Winston's injury and nearly rallied the Bucs to an improbable comeback win, finishing with 290 passing yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions for a 102.3 QB rating.
|10/16/2017||Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR|
|Bryant reportedly requested a trade recently, but he seemed to shut down those reports.
Analysis: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported late Sunday that sources informed him of Bryant's trade request, adding that Steelers teammates and coaches are well aware that the receiver is unhappy. Bryant posted Sunday night on Twitter that he is happy to be in Pittsburgh. "Big win today and tomorrow right back to work tomorrow I am happy to be a steeler and can't wait to reach number 7 this year," Bryant tweeted hours after the Steelers' 19-13 victory over the Chiefs.
