Steelers throwing the ball deep less often in 2018. Of 261 passing attempts, Ben Roethlisberger is 2-of-13 on passes traveling 31 yards or farther downfield. That's 4.98 percent of the time, down from 7-plus percent the previous two years.

Jets QB Sam Darnold (right elbow) appeared on the injury report for the first time in his career. He took a full share of practice reps and declared, "It's nothing crazy. It felt fine today." He received treatment on the elbow. It may be minor, but it always bears watching when a quarterback shows up on the injury report with an elbow issue. Darnold said he hurt it while tackling Colts S Malik Hooker on an interception return. Darnold laughed it off, saying, "Quarterbacks usually don't make tackles, so that might be part of it." Darnold, a former HS linebacker, said he must learn to tackle "without using my right arm." Good idea.

Drew Brees would love to knock the Ravens off his football bucket list — they're the one team he's never beaten. But it won't be easy since they have the NFL's No. 1-ranked defense.

Rams coach Sean McVay said he and 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan can't talk football as much as they used to because they are now NFC West division rivals: "I think more than anything, there's a respect that I have for Kyle as a coach," McVay said. "Any time that we cross paths at the combine or whatever it might be, we always enjoy talking ball and it doesn't have to be anything where you're giving your secrets away. But so much of what I've learned, it's really, we're operating in a very similar manner. We certainly still talk. I know that I feel like I wish he wasn't in our division and we didn't have to play twice a year so that we could be a little bit more open with our dialogue and I feel the same way with a lot of those coaches I have close relationships with on your guys' staff. But, we're fortunate to even be in these roles. So we'll take it, but I would prefer not to have Kyle Shanahan in our division, if you ask me."

Seven Jaguars did not practice on Wednesday: RB Leonard Fournette, RB T.J. Yeldon, CD D.J. Hayden, CB Tre Herndon, C Brandon Linder, LG Andrew Norwell, DE Calais Campbell.

Jets injury report: A "pretty lengthy" list, according to coach Todd Bowles. WR Quincy Enunwa and S Marcus Maye already have been ruled out for Sunday. It seems unlikely that CBs Trumaine Johnson and Buster Skrine will play, which could mean trouble against Vikings WR Adam Thielen. I'd put WR Robby Anderson, WR Terrelle Pryor, RB Isaiah Crowell and DE Leo Williams in the day-to-day category.
