Devin McCourty on Patriots-Bills: "They're first in the division. We're 2-4. So I definitely won't call us the team to beat this year. I will say right now we'd be crazy to think coming into the game that we're the team to beat. They're No. 1. This is going to be a huge challenge for us on the road (against) the top team. We've got to really bring our A-game coming off three straight losses. So I think for us, our backs are against the wall."

Three of the Seahawks' four tailbacks didn't practice Wednesday as Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer nurse injuries from the Arizona game. Pete Carroll hasn't ruled any of them out for Sunday vs. San Francisco. Carson won't do much if anything this week. They'll see how he is this weekend. Carroll said Hyde's injury isn't a major one and that Homer is moving "way better" than he was Tuesday. Their other tailback, DeeJay Dallas, is on the injury report but listed as a full participant.

Pete Carroll said All-Pro SS Jamal Adams would return to practice as a limited participant Wednesday, but it turns out he did not. The Seahawks' practice report lists Adams as not participating due to his groin and an unspecific illness. So his chances of returning Sunday against the 49ers are far from certain. Said Carroll: "We're going one day at a time and we're mixing him in in the preparation with the thought that there's a chance, but we're going to just have to wait and see how he does."

Ryan Tannehill should be considered an elite quarterback. Tannehill has made a strong case for himself over the last 16 games with the Titans and has led their offense to being one of the best in the league. Teammate Derrick Henry referred to Tannehill as the MVP.

Jets injury report: Big question is Jamison Crowder, who may try to practice tomorrow. Sounds like Bradley McDougald won't play. Rookie Ashtyn Davis could make his starting debut vs the Chiefs. There are easier ways to break in.

James White: "My mom is doing better. She's progressing physically. Obviously a lot going on in her mind, and things of that nature, but she is continuing to progress. I'm trying to be there for her. Obviously it's a tough situation and she's trying to wrap her mind around everything still. Kind of a lot going on, but I'm just trying to be there for her, and all my family as well."

Rookie receiver Bryan Edwards returned to practice for the Raiders for the first time since getting injured in Week 3.

Chris Herndon (13 catches) is having a disappointing year. "I feel like I've been used fairly," he said. "It's a team game. I can't sit after every game and be upset and mad and try to point fingers. This time last year I wasn't even on the field, so at this point, I'm honestly just thankful to be out there." With 138 routes run and 98 receiving yards, his yards/route ratio is a league low 0.7 among TEs, per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Mason Crosby has two issues: left (non-kicking leg) calf and a back. He's one of 19 — that's a season-high — players on the injury report. No wonder Matt LaFleur reduced today's practice to walk-through speed.

More from Gordon Wednesday about his DUI arrest earlier this month: "I had a hard time just dealing with it myself, like I said, never been in trouble before ... To the people of Denver and everyone, I don't want anyone to feel like I just don't care, like 'oh he got his money, he don't care.' I do (care), I do. I'm not happy I was in the situation.''

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon spoke today for the first time since his Oct. 13 DUI arrest:“I am sorry I was even in the situation. I don't want people to feel like ‘oh, because Melvin didn't say anything or he didn't speak on it, he just don't care, he's not apologetic about the situation.' That's not the case at all, obviously I try to do my best to walk a straight line and lead by example, things like that. I'm a little upset I even put myself in that situation.''

Frank Gore expects ex-Jet Le'Veon Bell to be "hyped up" on Sunday. He says Bell "can still play at a high level and I know he's going to want to definitely show it on Sunday." Gore's role was reduced last week as rookie La'Mical Perine saw more action. No complaints from Gore, who said, "When I get a fair chance, I can make things happen still."

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers' game status: Doubtful -- LT Russell Okung (calf); Questionable -- DE Marquis Haynes (knee), DT Zack Kerr (toe), OG John Miller (ankle), DE Efe Obada (back). No mention of RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) since he remains on injured reserve with a designation to return.

Ezekiel Elliott isn't familiar with Ben DiNucci's work at James Madison, but he likes the rookie QB, who could make his first start Sunday. “Honestly I wouldn't even know where to find Ben DiNucci's college tape,” Elliott said. “I think just from being around him for the past 2-3 months, I can see his arm talent, see his ability to move around and make throws, but, yeah we're not going to go back and look at his college tape. We're just going to play our football and I think it'll be fine.”

It's official - the Cowboys are releasing defensive tackle Dontari Poe and cornerback Daryl Worley after they were unable to make a trade with other teams, according to a source. The moves come a day after the trade of defensive end Everson Griffen to Detroit.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Ezekiel Elliott never thought the Cowboys season would be like this. “I think it's just kind of 2020 summed up,” he said. “You can't really control up to this point. We have had a lot of injuries. We haven't played the best in some games. What we do know is that I think if we this week, are we first in the division? We're still right where we need to be. We're still at a place where we can make a run for the playoffs … We've got to figure out something fast. We've got to win this weekend.”

No Antonio Brown inside today but he was outside in the far distance running with the training staff (sorry, our shooting portion of practice concluded when we saw him). Today's his first day in the building, and he's allowed to work with the strength staff and attend meetings.

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

Patriots injuries: NO PRACTICE — DT Carl Davis (concussion), WR N'Keal Harry (concussions); LIMITED — DB Kyle Dugger (ankle), WR Julian Edelman (knee), DT Lawrence Guy (ankle), RB Damien Harris (ankle), OL Justin Herron (ankle), RG Shaq Mason (calf), DE John Simon (shoulder), G Joe Thuney (ankle). The new additions to the report this week are Harry, Guy, Harris, Herron, Simon and Thuney.

As low as they are on cap space and 2021 draft picks, it was going to be hard for the Seahawks to fill their glaring need for a pass-rusher via trade. But GM John Schneider showed it wasn't impossible by getting Carlos Dunlap for a seventh-rounder and B.J. Finney. With Russell Wilson playing like an MVP and ample weapons around him, the Seahawks have a Super Bowl-caliber offense. But they badly need to help a defense that's getting gashed at a historic rate thanks largely to a lack of pressure.

Tua Tagovailoa spent everyday of Dolphins bye week except Sunday working at the facility getting ready for 1st start. "My leadership plan is just to be the same Tua I've always been. I don't have to go out yelling at guys. That's just not the way I lead. I'm just going to be me"

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins new QB1 Tua Tagovailoa leading the team with passes out in practice. It is Tua's team now.

A look at new LB James Burgess (57) working with the inside backers. Also note Christian Kirksey (58) getting his first reps since his Week 3 pec injury.

Aaron Jones, Kevin King, Mason Crosby not practicing but a slew of guys returned: David Bakhtiari, Tyler Ervin, Darnell Savage (all inactive last week) plus Raven Greene, Krys Barnes (both hurt in the game) and Allen Lazard, Christian Kirksey (both eligible to come off IR).

Broncos offensive line coach Mike Munchak has been placed on COVID-19 protocols so was not on practice field Wednesday.

A lot of people have wondered why Tom Brady has not only befriended Antonio Brown but gone to bat for him and others like him, who have troubled pasts and baggage. So I asked Brady how he navigates those relationships. It's not just about winning or on the field. "I think a lot of joy in my experience comes from seeing other people be their best and seeing people succeed in ways that can set their family up," Brady said.
