NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 10 Schedule and More
November 4, 2014
With the conclusion of last night’s game, Week 9 is all finished up in the NFL. It’s now time to start looking forward to Week 10, which begins in just a couple of days with the Browns-Bengals game. In the meantime, let’s check out some of the headlines from around the league.
MNF Wrap-Up: The Colts-Giants matchup last night really wasn’t all that close. New York continually shot themselves in the foot the entire game and couldn’t contain the Indianapolis offensive attack. The end result was a humbling 40-24 Colts win that wasn’t even that close (a couple of garbage-time touchdowns improved the scoreboard cosmetically).
The big hero here was Andrew Luck, who had 354 passing yards and four touchdowns. Coby Fleener, T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne And Dwayne Allen each got into the end zone. Luck now owns the franchise record for consecutive 300-yard passing games.

It’s looking like the Seahawks are going to be a whole lot healthier in Week 10. Coach Pete Carroll said he expects six or seven players who were absent in Week 9 to be good to go for the Giants game, which is great news for the team.
The players included in the likely return scenarios include Max Unger, Jordan Hill, Jeremy Lane, Russell Okung and Kam Chancellor.
It’s looking like Broncos LB Nate Irving suffered a sprained MCL in his team’s loss to the Patriots on Sunday. The good news is that the injury isn’t expected to end his season.
Also in the sprained MCL boat this week is Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford, who suffered his injury against the Cardinals. He’s going to need some more testing before a target date for his return can be determined.
Chiefs WR Donnie Avery has sat out for the last four games due to a groin injury, but there’s a chance he may be able to practice this week, according to KC coach Andy Reid. Whether or not he’ll be able to play in Week 10 is another matter, but the fact that Avery might be able to get on the practice field is a step in the right direction.
Yesterday, we got a pretty ominous-sounding report from Philly. According to coach Chip Kelly, QB Nick Foles has a cracked clavicle (collarbone). There was a report out there that claims he could be out 4-6 weeks with the injury.
In Foles’ absence, backup Mark Sanchez performed admirably on 202 yards and a pair of scores. The team will be rolling with him for the foreseeable future.
