NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 2 Schedule and More
September 16, 2015
We’ve got just one more day to wait before Week 2 gets going in the NFL. In the meantime, let’s check out the daily headlines and see who’s making news out there right now.
The Broncos officially have SS T.J. Ward back after his one-game suspension. He was reinstated yesterday.
Ward posted 15 starts in 2014 and came up with 74 tackles.

The status of 49ers RB Reggie Bush is still very much up in the air. He’s dealing with a calf strain, suffered in the late Monday night game against the Vikings.
We’ll get some more info on Bush in the next couple days once he undergoes some more tests. We’d call him questionable to doubtful for Sunday in Pittsburgh as of right now.
The Chiefs’ Eric Fisher was limited in yesterday’s practice session. He’s still dealing with an ankle injury.
KC has a quick turnaround this week, so it’s possible Fisher won’t end up with as much playing time as he normally would in Week 2.
Speaking of that Thursday night matchup, Broncos RB C.J. Anderson is dealing with an ankle injury as well.
Anderson was hurt on Sunday against the Ravens, but the general consensus seems to be that his chances of playing in Week 2 are decent. He posted only 29 yards on 12 carries in a pretty bad all-around offensive effort in the opener.
Yesterday, we learned that Raiders QB Derek Carr should be okay to play in the team’s Week 2 matchup against the Ravens.
It sounds like Carr’s testes went well, so we’ll likely see him on the field Sunday as long as he’s practicing by the end of the work week.
Rams RB Todd Gurley did some work with the first-team offense yesterday, which could open the door to him playing in Week 2.
Gurley still has some medical hurdles to pass with his knee, but the possibility remains that he could play. Stay tuned.
