Adam Gase tried to dodge questions about DC Gregg (Odell who?) Williams. Gase said he doesn't pay attention to "that stuff," so he couldn't comment. Pressed, he said, "I was told about (Williams' comments), but I don't really care." The head coach doesn't care about one of his coaches providing bulletin-board material to an opponent? Gase: "No, because we have to go do our job — coaches, players."

Jets injury report: QB Trevor Siemian (ankle), LB Jordan Jenkins (calf) and WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring). All three will have MRI exams. Thomas lasted only six plays before his cranky hamstring sent him to the sideline. That might be the last time the Jets make a trade with the Patriots.

Jets CB Trumaine Johnson on his benching: "Of course I'm upset, but it's not about me." He said he practiced on and off with the starters (which should've been a clue), but didn't know about his demotion until game time. Coach Adam Gase refused to shed any light on the decision, except to say it wasn't disciplinary. Gase, channeling Bill Belichick, said, "We just decided not to play him." Johnson played three snaps in garbage time because Nate Hairston went out with leg cramps.

Full trade details, per source: Dolphins get: Steelers 2020 1st rounder, Steelers 2020 5th rounder, Steelers 2021 6th rounder Steelers get: DB Minkah Fitzpatrick, Dolphins 2020 4th rounder, Dolphins 2021 7th rounder

One of Dolphins few remaining young core pieces — CB Xavien Howard — tweeted a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air gif with Will Smith standing in an empty living room looking around. That seems to be his response to the Minkah Fitzpatrick trade. Miami got good value on the trade, but Fitzpatrick was a 2018 first-round pick who was supposed to be a part of the future. Another player gone in the Dolphins teardown.

The Jets' once-promising season has unraveled in eight days. They were putrid against the Browns and lost, 23-3. Worse, they lost No. 2 QB Trevor Siemian (ankle) and had to play third stringer Luke Falk. They lacked urgency and had no semblance of a plan. It was an utter embarrassment.

Dolphins now set to have three first-round picks (own, Houston, Pittsburgh) in 2020 after the Minkah Fitzpatrick trade. They'll own the draft and they hope Pittsburgh's pick could be high after the Steelers start the year 0-2 plus Ben Roethlisberger out for the year due to injury. Miami set to have SEVEN picks in the first three rounds next spring. Dolphins GM Chris Grier will be the most important decision-maker in the draft next April.

Jets DC Gregg Williams is eating his words. On Friday, he scoffed when it was suggested that Odell Beckham, Jr. is a "dynamic" player. "Odell, who?" Williams asked. He looks like a fool because Beckham ripped apart his defense with an 89-yard touchdown. The Jets couldn't get close enough to deliver a cheap shot if they wanted to.

The Steelers' 2020 pick has a 29% chance to be in the top 5 and 62% chance to be in the top 10, per FPI.

It was a brutal first half for the Jets, who lost QB Trevor Siemian (ankle) and looked utterly hopeless on offense. The game still is within reach, 16-3, only because Browns QB Baker Mayfield wasn't sharp. Don't expect a comeback, though. The Jets haven't sustained anything on offense and Le'Veon Bell (16 touches) can't win it by himself.

Down injured QBs Sam Darnold and Trevor Siemian, the Jets enter halftime with negative 13 yards passing. The Browns, however, have unable to take advantage offensively, as Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham have been unable to find much rhythm through the air since the opening drive.

Jets QB Trevor Siemian suffered a lower leg injury and has been replaced by Luke Falk, who was signed off the practice squad today.

The Jets' already undermanned linebacking corps has absorbed another hit: Jordan Jenkins (calf) is doubtful to return. Remember, C.J. Mosley (groin) is out for the game and Avery Williamson (knee) is out for the season.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee suffered a lung contusion against the Saints, Sean McVay said Monday. McVay confirmed that Higbee was checked out at a hospital, but is now day-to-day. "Everything's checked out, he's asymptomatic with that in terms of the nuances of those things," McVay said.

Big lineup change: CB Trumaine Johnson, who played poorly last week, has been benched in favor of Nate Hairston. Adam Gase was upset with his cornerback play last week, and Johnson paid the price. The new regime doesn't care about contract status, only accountability. The Jets gave Johnson a $34 million guarantee in 2018.

Russell Wilson edged his previous career best in completion percentage Sunday by going 29 of 35 for 300 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Pete Carroll agreed that Wilson's command of the position is better than it's ever been in his eighth season, saying: "It's hard to imagine that someone could keep getting better when you're in Year 8 or whatever it is ... How could that happen? But it is. It's happening. We're watching it."

It looks like Seahawks strong safety Lano Hill will get at least one more week in the starting lineup. Pete Carroll said it's going to be a challenge for Tedric Thompson to make it back this week from the hamstring injury that sidelined him against Pittsburgh and opened the door for Hill to start alongside Bradley McDougald. Carroll liked the way Hill played aside from getting beat on a flea-flicker that gained 45 yards. Carroll said it's a wait-and-see situation with right guard D.J. Fluker's sprained ankle, though he finished Sunday's game. Defensive tackle Poona Ford (calf) will practice this week in the hopes of playing against the Saints. Cornerback Neiko Thorpe (hamstring) will have a hard time making it back by Sunday. Left guard Mike Iupati is fine, Carroll said.

Jets inactives: QB Sam Darnold, LB C.J. Mosley, DT Quinnen Williams, RB Bilal Powell, LB Jordan Willis, T Chuma Edoga and DL John Franklin-Myers. WR Demaryius Thomas is active even though he didn't practice due to a lingering hamstring injury.

Joel Bitonio ($31.3K) Chris Hubbard ($15.6K) JC Tretter ($15.6K) Chris Smith ($25K), T.J. Carrie ($25K) and Morgan Burnett ($15.6K) all collect bonuses for being active tonight.

Pete Carroll said the expectation is that Ziggy Ansah will make his Seahawks debut this week against the Saints. The Pro Bowl defensive end signed with Seattle in May following offseason shoulder surgery and missed the first two games, even though he returned to practice a week before the opener and was listed as a full participant last Thursday and Friday. Said Carroll: "It's just taken us this long to get through it. We wanted to make sure that everything was right and he was right, mentality was right, he had enough reps. He's had three good weeks of work behind him and he's in really good shape. He's worked really hard. He's in terrific condition, so he's going to be able to play if he gets through the week and everything goes well. And he'll play a considerable amount because he's practiced hard enough to do that. So that's really going to be fun to see him out there and you'll see how we use him and where he's going to fit in and all that at game time. But I'm really excited about that. He's a guy that was really important to us in the offseason to get him so that he could help us with the losses of the guys that were going other places. So now it's finally coming together."

WR Rashard Higgins is inactive for Monday Night Football, a big loss for the Browns. S Damarious Randall, RB Dontrell Hilliard, DE Genard Avery, LB Adarius Taylor, C Austin Corbett and OT Kendall Lamm inactive as well.

The Cowboys are 2-0 and have scored 66 points in two games. The Dolphins are 0-2 and been outscored, 102-10, in their first two games. In Sunday's matchup between the two teams, the Cowboys are a 21-point favorite. What will be Jason Garrett's message the players when they arrive for work Wednesday? “We've never talked about lines, good, bad or indifferent,” Garrett said. “The biggest thing we talk about is us and what we need to do. The players, when they watch this tape, they're going to see some good things we can build on, and they're going to see plenty of stuff that we've got to better at. So we'll lock into that, trying to improve each and every day. We have great respect for any team we play, any coaches we go against. They're here for a reason. We have to be our best, prepare the right way and play our best on Sunday.”

Rams RG Austin Blythe said Monday that he suffered a low ankle sprain against the Saints and called it the "Best case scenario." Blythe did not provide a timetable for his return, but sounded confident that he would not miss much time.

Packers S Raven Greene, who was placed on injured reserve today, is most likely going to need ankle surgery, a source said.
