NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 14 Schedule and More
December 8, 2015
Week 13 in the NFL is all finished up, and that means it’s officially time to start looking ahead to Week 14, which begins in just a couple of days. That said, let’s take our daily look at the headlines and see who’s in the news.
Redskins-Cowboys Wrap-Up: The Cowboys and Redskins put together a pretty ugly game last night, full of mistakes, fumbles and fruitless offensive play.
In the end, the Cowboys came out on top 19-16, thanks to four field goals from Dan Bailey.
Believe it or not, the Cowboys are still in the race for the division title. They’re sitting at 4-8, just one game behind the other three teams at 5-7.

The Titans’ Dexter McCluster was able to do some running yesterday, and will probably get back to practice tomorrow. He’s been fighting off a knee injury.
The team is hopeful that McCluster can play this weekend against the Jets. If he does, he’ll likely be the passing-down back.
Joe Flacco will be getting his ACL surgery today, so Ravens fans may want to keep tabs on that. He had to wait a little while for the swelling to go down before going under the knife.
Flacco will have to stay on track if he wants to get back in time for next year’s training camp. If all goes well, he should be okay for Week 1 of 2016.
Good news for the Chargers’ Dontrelle Inman. He has been classified as day-to-day with his neck injury, which is somewhat surprising after he was stretchered off in Week 13.
Inman is still questionable for this weekend, so we’ll have to wait and see what he does in practice.
As of right now, it’s looking like the Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski won’t be able to start this weekend against the Texans.
The Patriots will be secretive with Gronkowski’s status as long as they can, so we’ll have to rely on hearsay and speculation until then. Still, the team will likely have to rely on Scott Chandler at TE once again this week.
Brock Osweiler will be starting this weekend against the Raiders. Peyton Manning is still pretty far from healthy, and the team doesn’t seem anxious to switch back. It’ll be interesting to see how that situation plays itself out.
