NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 11 Schedule and More
November 14, 2014
Now that the Bills and Dolphins have finished up on “Thursday Night Football,” Week 11 in the NFL has officially begun. We’ve still got a couple more days to wait for the rest of the matchups, so in the meantime let’s check out some of the headlines from around the league.
TNF Wrap-Up: Last night on “Thursday Night Football,” we had an AFC East battle between the Bills and Dolphins. Miami came out on top in this one, on the strength of a late rally and the ineptitude of the Bills’ offense. It ended as a 22-9 Dolphins victory.
Miami came up with 125 rush yards on 24 carries, while Buffalo could only come up with 54 on 19 totes. Ryan Tannehill also out-dueled Kyle Orton 240 yards and two touchdowns to 193 yards and zero scores. That said, both teams have things to work on this week.

Texans rookie Jadeveon Clowney might be able to make it back to the field in Week 11. He said his goal is to make it back for the Browns game on Sunday, and that his knee was getting better and providing him with more confidence. Whether or not he can suit up, we’ll just have to wait and see.
The Bengals’ Giovani Bernard will likely have to wait at least one more week before he can get back to the field. He missed yesterday’s practice, which marked the second session in a row he’s been absent for.
As a result, there’s little hope Bernard will be able to return from injury against the Saints.
Lions RB Reggie Bush has been bothered by a nagging ankle injury most of the year, and the coaching staff is considering sitting him for the Cardinals game this weekend.
Bush has played in only two of the Lions’ last four games, and has only collected 43 yards on the ground since Week 5.
All indications are pointing to Browns WR Josh Gordon being able to return to action on November 23 in Atlanta.
The coaching staff is expecting him to be out on the practice field Monday, which will immediately add a layer of validation to an already surprisingly effective Browns offense. Gordon was suspended for the first 10 games of this season.
49ers CB Tramaine Brock wasn’t able to practice yesterday, thanks to a hamstring injury. He’ll be out for the next 1-2 games.
Brock has only been healthy for three games this season.
