NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 4 Schedule and More
September 29, 2015
Week 3 is officially over, so it’s time for us NFL fans to start looking ahead to Week 4. We’ve got plenty to talk about this morning, so let’s visit with some of the headlines and see who’s making news out there.
Packers-Chiefs Wrap-Up: That Aaron Rodgers guy is pretty good. The Packers QB came up with five touchdown passes last night on “Monday Night Football,” guiding his team to a 38-28 win over the visiting Chiefs. That’s four career games with at least five touchdown passes, which is a new franchise record.
James Jones (seven catches; 139 yards; TD) and Randall Cobb (seven catches; 91 yards; three TD) were the big contributors through the air.

The Packers win wasn’t without casualties, however. WR Davante Adams re-injured his ankle (sprain) and will likely be out multiple weeks.
TE Andrew Quarless (knee) was also hurt later in the game.
The Bills’ LeSean McCoy might end up sitting out this week against the Giants. He’s been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury which has bothered him for quite a while.
It’s starting to sound like the team is leaning toward sitting--or at least severely limiting--McCoy as he heals this week. We won’t know anything for sure for a few days, but we’d imagine he’ll sit.
The Bears unloaded a couple of players yesterday in an apparent fire sale. The team dealt LB Jon Bostic to the Patriots and Jared Allen to the Panthers.
Bostic has been injured the first three games of the season with a high-ankle sprain.
The Ravens’ Crockett Gillmore and Breshad Perriman were out of practice yesterday due to injuries. Their availability on a short week (they play the Steelers on Thursday) is now in question.
The Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch got an MRI on his ailing hamstring yesterday. We probably won’t get much of an update on him until later in the week, but as of now his status for Monday’s game is up in the air.
