NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Schedule and More
October 25, 2014
We’ve got just one more day to wait until the bulk of the Week 8 NFL games take place, but in the meantime there’s plenty to talk about. There are all sorts of injury storylines happening across the league, so let’s get into those and a few other things in our daily wrap-up.
Texans LB Brian Cushing will be testing out his injured knee before tomorrow’s game against the Titans. He’s officially listed as questionable and hasn’t been able to practice all week, so we’d imagine the team is leaning toward sitting him--especially against a sub-par team like Tennessee.

It looks like Lions WR Corey Fuller is gaining the confidence of his coaching staff. Detroit head man Jim Caldwell praised the second-year WR yesterday during his comments to the media, saying he was “barely scratching the surface” of his potential talent.
Fuller has come on in recent weeks with Calvin Johnson sidelined due to an ankle injury. In the last three games, he has eight grabs for 83 yards. His role should only increase as he develops chemistry with QB Matthew Stafford.
The Vikings’ Kyle Rudolph was ruled out yesterday, and this will mark his fifth consecutive missed game due to abdomen/groin problems.
There were some very high hopes pinned on Rudolph at the beginning of the season, but he’s only been healthy for three games, during which he posted only 10 catches for 96 yards and a TD.
Tomorrow’s Bills-Jets matchup represents a last-gasp chance for New York’s season. Buffalo is reasonably healthy heading into this one, but does have a few injury concerns on hand.
Fred Jackson and Ty Powell have been ruled out as expected, with Marquise Goodwin being doubtful. Marcus Easley and Aaron Williams are questionable, while Ron Brooks, Brandon Spikes, Mario Williams and Sammy Watkins are all probable.
