NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Off-Season Schedule and More
September 24, 2014
Week 3 in the NFL seems like it just got finished up (actually, it did), and we’re already just one day away from Week 4. With that change in the proverbial calendar, there also comes plenty of news. That said, let’s take our daily look around the league and see who’s making headlines out there.
The Niners’ Vernon Davis sat out Week 3 due to an ankle injury, but could be well on his way to making a return. The team seems optimistic that he’ll be able to return to the field against the Eagles, as he’s now able to walk with no limp.
Davis still has a ways to go in his recovery, but this is encouraging. We’ll have to watch him in practice this week.

Let’s head to DC and check in on a couple of Redskins ahead of tomorrow’s matchup against the Giants. DeSean Jackson was limited in practice yesterday due to his shoulder injury. That said, there seems to be little doubt he’ll be able to play (and likely play well).
Meanwhile, ‘Skins RB Alfred Morris was a full participant in yesterday’s session. He looks good to go for tomorrow.
What’s in store for Jets receiver Jeremy Kerley? Well, most people seem to think he’ll be a featured offensive player for some time to come. No. 1 receiver Eric Decker was ailing during Monday’s loss against the Bears, falling victim to a nagging hamstring injury and leaving during the second quarter.
In stepped Kerley, who came up with seven grabs for 81 yards and a touchdown in his best statistical performance of the season thus far.
Decker doesn’t seem like he’ll be getting better anytime soon, and with the void of receiving options the Jets have that means it’s Kerley’s time to shine. He should be a big contributor in Week 4 against the Lions.
Both Ryan Shazier and Ike Taylor of the Steelers have already been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers. Taylor will be out for several weeks, but there seems to be some optimism surrounding Shazier’s knee injury.
Week 4 NFL Schedule: It’s time to start looking forward to Week 4 in the NFL. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, along with the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
