The Browns are three field goals away from starting their season 1-1-4 and that feels like a missed opportunity for weird football.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, who is not expected to play Sunday vs. the Bears, is expected back next week at Buffalo on Monday Night Football, per a source. The Patriots are playing it safe by resting him against the Bears, per Schefter.

Patriots downgrade TE Jacob Hollister, DE Geneo Grissom and DE/OLB John Simon to out for Sunday's game, while TE Rob Gronkowski has been downgraded to doubtful. The potential shortage of tight ends would thrust Dwayne Allen into a possible lead role at the position, with more two-back and three- and four-receiver sets. DT Malcom Brown (knee) has made the trip, giving him a chance to play.

Predicting the Jets' inactive players for tomorrow against the Vikings: WR Quincy Enunwa, CB Trumaine Johnson, S Marcus Maye, CB Buster Skrine, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, DL Folorunso Fatukasi and CB Derrick Jones. Analysis: After the Terrelle Pryor move, the Jets have only 48 players healthy enough to play, so there aren't many tough decisions here. RB Isaiah Crowell (ankle) is a game-time decision, but he's expected to play.

The Texans⁠ ⁠added safety Andre Hal to the active roster. Hal was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in May but is now in remission. Last week, Hal practiced for the first time since his diagnosis, which gave the Texans 21 days to add him to the active roster.
