NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 10 Schedule and More
November 6, 2014
The NFL will be kicking back into gear tonight on “Thursday Night Football” with an Ohio battle between the Browns and Bengals, which should be a pretty good game. In the meantime, there are plenty of headlines to go over, so let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s making news out there right now.
There are a lot of compelling storylines happening in tonight’s game, and one of them will be seeing how well Bengals WR A.J. Green performs on a short week of rest.
Green came back from a toe injury in Week 9, and though he was limited in his return he still was able to contribute quite a bit on the scoreboard.
Though he may not be back to 100 percent just yet, Green should take another step forward in his usage this evening, and will likely see a rise in snaps. We’ll see if the Cleveland secondary can shut him down.

The Eagles’ LeSean McCoy missed out on practice yesterday. He’s dealing with an illness, but sources close to the team believe he’ll be back out there today, and he’s realistically in no danger of missing Week 10 against Carolina.
The Chargers’ Ryan Mathews was back at practice yesterday. He’s missed out on the team’s last seven games with a knee injury.
San Diego is on a bye in Week 10, so fans can fully expect to see Mathews back in action in Week 11 against Oakland.
Speaking of Oakland, they’ll have their hands full with Denver this week, and the Broncos just might be able to rely on the services of their (former) top back once again.
Montee Ball, who has missed four games with a groin injury, returned to practice yesterday, though at this point it’s impossible to tell if he’ll be good to go for Week 10. Even if he does play, it seems fellow RB Ronnie Hillman has supplanted him as the workhorse of choice in that offense. Ball will likely serve as nothing more than a change-of-pace back.
For what it’s worth, Texans RB Arian Foster says he’s planning on returning in Week 11 against Cleveland. Houston is on a bye this week.
Foster came out of Sunday’s game against the Eagles due to a groin injury.
