Ben Roethlisberger said on 93.7 the Fan that Martavis Bryant doesn't want to go anywhere based on his talks with him, and "there haven't been any inklings of unhappiness' from the playmaker.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers center Ryan Kalil (neck) is in full pads and looks ready to practice. He hasn't played since the opener.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

LB Shea McClellin is eligible to begin practicing this week after opening the year on injured reserve, and asked if that will happen, Bill Belichick said it is a "possibility." The decision would come after consultation with the medical staff.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) is not dressed for practice but he is here.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers players have spoken to Martavis Bryant with an encouraging tone this week, saying he's crucial to the game plan and it's too early to be frustrated. Ben Roethlisberger was among those who spoke to him.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Titans WR Rishard Matthews was invited to Tuesday's NFL meetings, but could not attend because he played in MNF. Matthews, who has been vocal in his right to protest and stance against racial injustice, sent in a letter instead, per his agent.

Credit Titans DC Dick LeBeau for making second half adjustments. They sent more blitzes, 9, at Jacoby Brissett in 2nd half. They got 6 pressures. Brissett went 2-9 for 17 yards. Brissett completed just 45-percent of his passes for 93 yards in the second half.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

DRC will return to work with his teammates Wednesday. That's because Giants players have off Monday and Tuesday this week as part of Ben McAdoo's plan to promote rest and recovery following West Coast trips. Giants players will have off Monday and Tuesday this year after trips to Denver, SF, Oakland and Arizona.

RBBC alert! Derrick Henry (40) outsnapped DeMarco Murray (38). But Henry (20 for 145 yards, TD) and Murray (16 for 87 yards, TD) both got plenty of touches. Great recipe for Titans offensive success going forward. And a reminder that every Taywan Taylor snap is a good one.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The Panthers sign veteran linebacker Andrew Gachkar, in his seventh year out of Missouri. Could be insurance for Luke Kuechly, who remains in the concussion protocol.

Josh Norman arrives at the NFL Offices, where a group of players are meeting with some owners regarding the National Anthem protests.


Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Browns CB Jason McCourty instantly knew Deshaun Watson "is going to be really good," changed Texans offense. Compared his value to Andrew Luck, Marcus Mariota.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Lions punter Sam Martin is returning to practice. He has been on the NFI list. It's possible Martin could return for Week 8 against Pittsburgh. Jeff Locke has been handling punting in his absence.

David Purdum ESPN Staff Writer 

The NCAA, NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball on Monday filed a 71-page brief opposing New Jersey's attempt to legalize sports betting. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case Dec. 4.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers jump to No. 4 in ESPN's NFL power rankings. Pittsburgh moves up six spots from the previous week, the most significant jump among teams in the top 10.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly remains in the concussion protocol as the Panthers return from a three-day break. They practice later this morning, so it'll be interesting to see if Kuechly is on the field -- and if he is how limited he is. Before a player can be cleared from the protocol he has to resume practicing with the team with no limitations and be cleared by an independent physician.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers decision to release quarterback Brad Kaaya, per Adam Schefter, shouldn't come as a surprise. They had four on the active roster after promoting Garrett Gilbert from the practice squad. Carolina is trying to develop a third quarterback for the future behind Cam Newton and Derek Anderson. Gilbert apparently is showing more promise.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

A group of 10-12 NFL players, commissioner Roger Goodell and select owners will meet at 10 am ET today at NFL offices on Park Avenue, ahead of the scheduled owners meeting that begins at a downtown hotel at 1 pm ET. According to sources, there is no plan for a discussion at this player/owner meeting on a potential rule change regarding the national anthem at games. That's a topic the owners are expected to address on their own later in the day. Players are hoping to continue their discussions with owners about specific ways the league and teams plan to help the players with their social and community causes. One source told me, "The best outcome would be to give players a reason NOT to kneel," meaning that once the players see evidence of positive change arising from their protests, they would know they had the desired effect.

A special MNF second half from Marcus Mariota, Titans D could lift Titans further than one game.


Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The Colts season-long trend of poor play in the second half continued when they were outscored 27-9 by Tennessee in their loss on Monday


Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Taylor Lewan hope in Derrick Henry's media scrum after the RB's big day and says, "Derrick Henry, G.O.A.T."

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Titans ran "slant 35 deuce" four times in a row to DeMarco Murray on 15-play go-ahead TD drive. Big to punch it in after red zone struggles.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Really impressed with Titans QB Marcus Mariota tonight. Clearly limited by that hamstring injury, Tennessee took out the boot and sprint passes in the game plan. All pocket throws. And Mariota still finished with 306 yards passing (23-of-32) with one touchdown and one interception.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Derrick Henry with the exclamation point. One finally pops. Titans are going to end the 11-game losing streak against the Colts.
