Josh McCown lamented the Jets' final play of the game, fourth-and-16 from the New England 49. He threw deep for Jeremy Kerley, not seeing Travaris Cadet WIDE open at the 30. "You're right, he was there," McCown said. "I pulled my eyes up and was looking downfield more, and I'm with you, I wish I could have thrown him the ball, but that's part of the game." They would've been able to spike the ball, then take a shot at the end zone for a potential game-tying TD.

Lions RG T.J. Lang said he feels "a little better than yesterday." Said his back issues have been on and off since Minnesota. Said back flared up during early warmups right before inactives. "Ultimately couldn't loosen up," Lang said. Said he thinks it'll get better through the bye week. Thinks if Lions were playing late afternoon or in evening, he could have had a better shot at playing. Travel, he said, doesn't help it but "you never know it is going to respond." Called it bad timing.

Rams TE Derek Carrier cleared the concussion protocol. Everybody else came out of Sunday's game fine. RB Lance Dunbar is also healthy and eligible to come off PUP, but the team can also delay that process by a week or two in order to preserve depth. Rams continue to be very fortunate on the injury front. The only real question is DB Lamarcus Joyner, who has missed the past three games with a bad hamstring.

Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said that it's a sprained AC joint for quarterback Jameis Winston. There is no structural damage. He will be day-to-day.

Packers offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett on Brett Hundley's best attribute: "I think he brings a lot of tools to the table. I think it all starts with his overall preparation and his command in the huddle. You look at the way he's performed in the preseason, I think he's a unique player. Go back to his college days, the plays that he made stood out. We know that we have a player that we have all the confidence in."

The Patriots, without a 3rd QB on the roster/practice squad, had Garrett Grayson in for a workout today. He entered the NFL as a third-round pick of Saints. Four other players were in for workouts: WR Tim Patrick (Utah), LB Marcus Rush (Michigan State), DE Jhaustin Thomas (Iowa State) and WR Deonte Thompson (Florida).

The Redskins signed offensive lineman Andreas Knappe to the practice squad and released offensive lineman Jerry Ugokwe, the team announced. Knappe was raised in Denmark. He's 6-foot-9, 322 pounds.

Mike McCarthy sounded adamant about not bringing in a veteran QB. "The quarterback room is exactly where it needs to be," McCarthy said. "We're committed to the path we're on. We need to play better as a football team."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike McCarthy "didn't like the hit" from Anthony Barr on Aaron Rodgers. "He's out of the pocket, he's clearly expecting to get hit, but to pin him to the ground like that, I think was an illegal act," McCarthy said. "I didn't like the hit. It was totally unnecessary in my opinion."

The Bengals have promoted LB Hardy Nickerson off the practice squad to fill Tyler Eifert's spot.

The Bengals have given long snapper Clark Harris a one-year extension, signing him through the 2018 season. Harris, 33, has quietly been as solid as they come on special teams since the Bengals signed him in 2009.

Explaining the decision to cut WR Jalin Marshall, Jets coach Todd Bowles said they needed a backup slot corner against the Patriots. That's why they signed CB Xavier Coleman from the practice squad. He backed up Buster Skrine. Darryl Roberts and Juston Burris are perimeter cornerbacks. So was Marcus Williams, who was cut last week. To make room for Coleman, they cut Marshall because he was an "extra receiver," per Bowles. He didn't rule out re-signing him at some point.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers will have surgery on his broken clavicle, coach Mike McCarty said. His season "potentially could be over" but it sounds like no decision will be made until after the surgery, which will happen "in the near future," McCarthy said.

John Harbaugh says embattled offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is a 'great coach'


Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Bengals' WR John Ross has played only 5 offensive snaps, or 0.8 percent of all the team's snaps, which ranks 31 of 32 first-round picks this year. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has not taken a snap. Niners LB Reuben Foster and Chargers WR Mike Williams have also taken less than 2 percent of their teams' total snaps.

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said team will look at potentially upgrading at kicker after Jason Myers missed two 54-yard FG attempts on Sunday. Marrone said it's no different than any other position. If they find someone better they'll bring them in.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on the five drops by the receivers on Sunday: "Catching the ball, to me, is a prerequisite. Your job is to catch the ball. That's it."

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

Chargers announce that they have signed LB Josh Keyes. At 6-2 and 227 pounds, Keyes spent time on the Atlanta Falcons practice squad and is familiar with Chargers LB coach Richard Smith. The Chargers released Nigel Harris to make room for Keyes. The Chargers also released RB LeShun Daniels from the practice squad.

Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg: "Trying to put the blame on one person in a team game is a mistake. It's nonsensical." Baltimore ranks 29th in yards per game (289.2) and 30th in offensive points per game (15.3).

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills on Monday activated OT Seantrel Henderson from suspension and waived CB Greg Mabin. Henderson, who served the final five games of a 10-game NFL substance-abuse suspension to begin the season, is the fifth offensive tackle on the 53-man roster. His role at the moment is unclear.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

After listening to it again need to make clear that Vance Joseph actually said wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie's right ankle sprain was a "little bit LESS of a sprain" than Emmanuel Sanders' injury. Sanders' is a bit more severe. Again he called both players week to week.

Bridgewater has been present in team meetings throughout the last 14 months. Zimmer said he is caught up on the playbook and receives the game script every week to run by himself. "He'll be ready," Zimmer said. "Teddy's smart."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets coach Todd Bowles was in no mood to rehash the controversial fumble. "I don't give two shakes about it," he said. He added, "That wasn't the reason we lost the game. We've moved on from that. It doesn't change. We're not gonna cry about it all week. We have to go play Miami."
