Rams DL Michael Brockers, on Adrian Peterson: "Man, when you got a name like 'All Day' as your nickname, it's kind of hard to back that up. And he can give it to you all day, man. If you let him get going, he can have 293 yards. I've been a part of that game when he's had 200 yards, and you just can't stop him. We just have to get him before he gets started. Get him in the backfield, get tackles for loss, mess up their rhythm."

Rams DL Michael Brockers, on facing the Cardinals: "This is a divisional game. They know us, we know them. They don't like us very much, we don't like them very much. It'll be an all-out war."

Russell Wilson was asked today for his take on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell saying he thinks players should stand during the national anthem. Wilson: “I think everybody has their own opinions and everything else. I believe in the national anthem in the sense of America and what it represents, or is supposed to represent at least, I should say. Everybody has their different views. For our football team, we're about bringing people together and that's really our only focus. The good thing is there is actual dialogue and I think that's really the intent of all of this is to have dialogue around what's going on in our country more than anything else and actually converting that dialogue into change. I think that change is really what matters more than anything else. It's being able to love people better and try to do better throughout that process.”

Video: Michael Bennett says, "I think the first step to even being able to even have a conversation (with the NFL) is making sure that Colin Kaepernick gets an opportunity to play in the NFL."

Rams QB Jared Goff, who grew up near San Francisco, started a GoFundMe page to help those affected by California wildfires. Seeing what J.J. Watt did for Hurricane Harvey victims "gave me an idea," he said.

The Seahawks' practice report lists DL Michael Bennett (heel) as not participating today despite coach Pete Carroll saying yesterday that he likely would. Bennett said earlier in the day that he plans on playing Sunday against the Giants. He's dealing with what Carroll previously called a plantar fascia foot injury. CB Jeremy Lane, who hasn't played since injuring his groin in the first quarter of Week 4, also missed practice today.

Rams coach Sean McVay said DB Lamarcus Joyner, who missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury, will play on Sunday "if everything goes according to plan." ILB Mark Barron (thumb) and S Cody Davis (thigh) sat out practice, but the Rams have a chance to be fully healthy near the midway point of the season. "Very fortunate," said McVay, who credited the training staff.

Kenny Vaccaro on whether it's hard to prepare for a player like Brett Hundley (Aaron Rodgers' injury replacement) without having much film on him: “Yeah. But at the same time, I'd rather do that than prepare for Superman.”

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers DL Ronald Blair, who has been on injured reserve with a hand injury, participated in practice on Wednesday. Blair is expected to be one of two Niners brought back from injured reserve this year and with his practice window now open, he could return as soon as Week 9.

VIDEO: Chargers QB Philip Rivers said the offense needs to have the mindset that they are in a critical moment of the game to curb the team's slow starts this season.

One thing Rams QB Jared Goff would like to improve on from Sunday is "throwing the ball down the field." "I was disappointed we didn't hit any of those deep balls," he said. Asked specifically about connecting with Sammy Watkins (10 targets and 2 catches the last 3 weeks), Goff said: "We've done it before; I don't think we need to change anything. Just continue to get reps, try to dial it in, and be more consistent. But we've done it before."

Marcus Mariota was a full participant in Wednesday's practice for the first time since injuring his hamstring. Good news for the Titans heading north for a game at Cleveland on Sunday.

"I think the one thing you realize is how talented this team is," Pats QB Tom Brady on the Falcons. "I think they have a lot of speed and a great rush. We've got a big challenge ahead."

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills linebacker Preston Brown said Wednesday on 1270 The Fan in Buffalo that the team believes QB Jameis Winston will start Sunday and the Bills are putting "90 percent" of their preparation efforts into Winston and not Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Drew Brees talks about how much he appreciates the history whenever he gets the chance to play in Lambeau Field — and never knows how many more chances he'll get.


Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets coach Todd Bowles insisted that Mo Wilkerson (pictured) and Leonard Williams are "playing well" even though they have no sacks. Bowles got testy when pressed: "Nobody is playing great. When you're 3-3, you're playing average football. It has nothing to do with Mo or Leonard. It has to do with our entire team. I'm not going to sit here and make excuses about two guys when we have 11 guys in each side of the ball. If you want to nitpick, go for it. I've made my comment. Take it or leave it."

Even without Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees said a trip to Lambeau Field is a good test for the Saints on their current three-game win streak. "Winning feels good. Winning cures a lot of ails. But we still don't know how good we can be," Brees said.
