NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 10 Schedule and More
November 8, 2014
Just one more day to wait until the bulk of the Week 10 games get going in the NFL. In the meantime, we’ve got plenty of injury updates and headlines to go over in our daily wrap-up, so let’s check in on some of the notable players out there and see what’s happening.
It looks like Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin will be able to take the field tomorrow against the Giants. Seattle coach Pete Carroll classified him as “good to go” yesterday after Baldwin missed out on Wednesday’s practice with a groin injury.
In a similar situation, Carroll gave RB Marshawn Lynch a thumbs-up, declaring him healthy after this week’s calf injury.

The Cardinals’ Carson Palmer got some very good news yesterday. All day, sources close to the team were reporting that he was on the verge of receiving a contract extension from Arizona, and he ended up getting it.
The veteran QB inked a three-year extension worth $50 million yesterday, locking him up through 2017. Palmer is making $10 million with base salary and a roster bonus this season. So far he’s got the Cardinals at a 7-1 record and storming through the schedule.
One of the happiest people to see Tony Romo back on the field tomorrow in London (he’s probable) will be WR Dez Bryant. Things haven’t been good without his main signal-caller, as over the past two weeks he’s had just five catches for 45 yards. He’s been able to get into the end zone without Romo, but the downfield strikes simply haven’t been there.
We’ve still got a lot of question marks as far as what Romo will look like tomorrow when he takes the field against the Jaguars, and we won’t know the answers until the game begins. We’re expecting the Cowboys to take it easy with him.
The Steelers are a bit dinged up heading into Week 10; they’ve got some notable injury issues to deal with. Another safety was added to their list of inactives; so far Ross Ventrone, Shamarko Thomas and Troy Polamalu have been ruled out. Ryan Shazier and Ike Taylor won’t be playing, either.
The good news for Pittsburgh is that they’re playing the Jets at MetLife Stadium. There’s literally no one on earth who thinks New York will be able to win this game, even with the Steelers’ injury issues. The Jets haven’t won a game since Week 1 and have been phoning it in for the last month.
