The Seahawks' defensive line is dealing with more injuries than the torn ACL that ended Bruce Irvin's season. Rasheem Green and Benson Mayowa missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, as did Duane Brown. Jarran Reed returned as limited after not practicing Wednesday. Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Green, who missed Week 2 with a stinger, had yet to be cleared. Brown's absences have not been listed as vet rests days, which suggests uncertainty over his status for Sunday vs. Dallas.

"He's a big quarterback that's mobile, that plays hard, he'll run through you, run past you and he'll make you miss. He can do it all," Rams DT Aaron Donald says about Bills QB Josh Allen. "When you get him you better come with your big boy pads and find a way to get him to the ground."

Cam Newton explains his "Happily Miserable" shirt: "Shout out to my dog, Jules. He has a lot merch coming out. For some strange reason, I haven't got my hat yet. It has to be custom because of obvious reasons. I think it's because I'm smart. But my hair kind of cushions a lot, so I'm waiting on my JE11 hat, amongst other Julian Edelman merch. It's fire, by the way. So just supporting the cause."

Neat stat on Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick: Per Elias Sports Bureau, he is the only QB since 1950 with at least one win for five different teams against a single opponent -- which happens to be the Jaguars. Fitzpatrick beat the Jaguars as a starting QB with Cincinnati, Buffalo, Houston, Tennessee and the New York Jets.

With WR DJ Chark (back/chest) out Thursday night it gives WR Dede Westbrook a chance to get on the field. Westbrook has been a healthy scratch the first two weeks, which isn't ideal when you're in a contract year. A shoulder injury in camp, which coach Doug Marrone said said him back a bit, and the emergence of rookie fifth-round pick Collin Johnson kept him sidelined against Indy and Tennessee. Westbrook has caught 66 passes in each of the last two seasons.

Russell Wilson tipped his cap to Cowboys QB Dak Prescott for the way he opened up this offseason about his struggles with depression. "I love Dak's courage because most men are afraid to talk about some of the things that they've gone through and the challenges, especially in terms of mental health and everything," Wilson said. "He's a tremendous football player, and I think a lot of kids, a lot of people, look up him all over the country, I'm sure." Wilson called Prescott's actions "honorable."

Shaquill Griffin's rough outing in the Seahawks' playoff loss at Dallas two seasons ago left a bad taste in the cornerback's mouth. He didn't hide his eagerness to play the Cowboys for the first time since then. "It's a lot of plays I'm expecting to see coming back from 2018, so I'm excited to face them again," he said. "I was dealing with a couple injuries then, but I'll definitely be ready now, so I'm excited about that. But I'm not going to do anything extra ... I'm going to play my game."

Panthers LT Russell Okung isn't a fan of the protocols the NFL has established for travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. "Honestly, it's difficult, whether you're talking about flights or standards or protocols. I can't stand the protocols. My feelings aside, this is what was deemed necessary between management and the union [to play].'' Meanwhile, he's killing the Bitcoin gear during this zoom.

Panthers LT Russell Okung (groin) says he'll to everything he can to play on Sunday against his former team. He doesn't think his injury is related to what he went through last year with the Chargers. “This is a really physical and violent game. the demands on the body are insane. There's always going to be something nagging and bothering you. That's kind of what it is.''

Panthers coach Matt Rhule went into a very long answer when asked if the team's lack of QB pressure had more to do with scheme, game plan or personnel. He took his time because it's a complex answer and he didn't want to offend anyone on his staff or players. He even used the word “Belickician.''

Panthers coach Matt Rhule reacts to the grand jury decision on the Breonna Taylor case: “I know it's a complex case, so it's hard to sit there and say I know all the answers. On a personal note, I was disappointed. I don't pretend to have all the answers. I know what I'm saying to some people may be controversial . . . but I was disappointed. That in and of itself speaks my feelings.''

Greg Little would be a candidate to start at left tackle if Russell Okung (groin) isn't ready to go against his former team. Little was the starter last year before injuries sidetracked his rookie season.
