Jets WR Eric Decker has a partial tear in his rotator cuff and won't play Sunday, the team announced. Todd Bowles said it's a week-to-week injury. He didn't rule out surgery down the road; it depends on healing and rehab. This a big blow to the Jets' struggling passing attack.

Asked Friday if there was "any clearer timetable" on when the Bills might get Sammy Watkins back to practice, Rex Ryan shook his head and said, "Nope. I guess that's just the answer I have. I'm not trying to hold anything back, but, no, I can't tell you."

Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said he's not worried about Mike Evans possibly losing his composure against Aqib Talib, a known trash-talker. "I trust Mike. I think he's really made it a point of emphasis. He's had a couple chances -- whether you call it 'losing cool' or 'frustration' -- I think Mike has really turned the corner."

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens LT Ronnie Stanley (foot) missed his third straight practice and LG Alex Lewis (concussion) was limited. It looks like James Hurst will start at LT on Sunday and Ryan Jensen will go at LG.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Patriots QBs Jimmy Garoppolo (10) and Jacoby Brissett (7) finish their warmup and jog to their next drill at practice. Media members didn't see any throwing during a limited peek at practice.


Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Dez Bryant will not practice today but Jason Garrett will not rule the Cowboys wide receiver out of Sunday's game at San Francisco yet. If left tackle Tyron Smith (back) practices it will be in a limited fashion. He did not play last week against the Chicago Bears.
