Falcons RB Devonta Freeman in black no-contact jersey again today while in concussion protocol. Seems unlikely to play without having contact in practice as part of the protocol steps, and Saturday typically just a light walkthrough. Tevin Coleman would start again.

Bucs tight end Cameron Brate was limited Thursday with an ankle injury but looked fined during drills Friday morning. Didn't appear to be favoring an ankle but you can see that it's taped.

Still no throwing for Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston, but he was on the practice field today, talking to head coach Dirk Koetter and high-fiving teammates in between drills.

The Bucs are indoors today due to rain (and because they're playing in a domed stadium Sunday). Here's wide receiver DeSean Jackson dancing to Digital Underground's The Humpty Dance.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster probably needs decent practice run to have a shot for Packers game. Team often cautious with hamstrings.

Ty Montgomery making slow progress with his rib injury and continues to get treatment and work in the rehab group. Still sounds like a long shot to play Sunday night in Pittsburgh. "He needs to practice tomorrow in order to play," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.

K Jake Elliott has cleared concussion protocol, per coach Doug Pederson.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters Friday that RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring), LT Cordy Glenn (foot/ankle) and G John Miller (ankle) have been ruled out Sunday against the Chiefs. McDermott said WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is not expected to practice Friday but did not yet offer a status for Sunday's game.

Prediction for Sunday: Unless the Jets signed a new offense during the bye week, this looms as a bad matchup. The Panthers rank among the league leaders in most of the major defensive categories and will cause problems for the Jets' inconsistent line. The Jets have allowed 204 rushing yards to opposing quarterbacks (tie-29th), hardly ideal when you're facing Cam Newton. The Jets also come up short when analyzing common opponents. Carolina's last three wins came against teams responsible for the Jets' last three losses (Tampa Bay, Atlanta and Miami). Panthers 27, Jets 17

Final numbers for Giants offense in second half: 20 plays, 47 yards, 1 first down. That is with 36 yards coming on the final drive with under two minutes remaining.

D.J. Swearinger on safety Deshazor Everett, who played one of his more consistent games: "He played a hell of a game. Coverage was great; tackling was great. He definitely improved. My thing with him is stay consistent. Next week do the same thing or do better."

D.J. Swearinger said of Kendall Fuller's interception to clinch the win: "He was telling me right before the drive, he said he don't like being tired. I said, well make it happen. He made it happen the very next drive."

Redskins tackle Morgan Moses said he's glad they stuck with the run. "At the time we were beating our defense up ourselves because we were getting off the field so quick," he said. "The defense was playing a hell of a game. We had to control some of the clock to give our defense a rest."

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the botched fourth-down play stemmed from a player who was supposed to be on the field, but had remained on the sidelines. Apparently the player had an issue with his foot and had his shoe off, which the coaches had not been told about. So they had to take the delay and punt.
