NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Schedule and More
September 10, 2015
Today’s the day. The 2015 NFL season officially gets going in just a few hours when the Steelers face off against the Patriots. In the meantime, let’s take our daily look at today’s news items and see what’s happening out there in the league.
It seems we’ll be getting a good look at rookie running back T.J. Yeldon on Sunday. He will reportedly not be limited in the team’s Week 1 game.
Yeldon didn’t play much in the preseason; he was recovering from a finger injury. He’ll be the team’s starting RB.

There’s been a little bit of contention regarding Packers WR Randall Cobb’s health heading into Week 1, but he’s expecting to play this weekend.
Cobb sprained his right shoulder in the preseason but was able to practice yesterday. How close he is to 100 percent, however, remains to be seen.
Speaking of not being 100 percent, Bills RB LeSean McCoy has been nursing a hamstring injury recently.
The good news is that McCoy was able to practice in full yesterday. That said, he probably won’t be at full health by Sunday, which could affect his touches.
Good news for Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders. He was able to practice fully yesterday.
Sanders has been trying to get over a hamstring injury he suffered early last month. He should be good to go for the Ravens in the opener on Sunday.
On the other side of that Ravens-Broncos matchup we have Baltimore WR Breshad Perriman. He was out of practice once again yesterday, thanks to that knee injury.
Perriman hasn’t been in practice for nearly two weeks, so we’d say he’s questionable at best for Sunday.
On a more positive note, Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was able to practice yesterday. He’s been on the shelf for a few weeks thanks to a trio of finger dislocations.
NFL Weekly Schedule: Now that Week 1 is upon us, we can start looking forward to the official start of the 2015 NFL season. Let’s take a look at the upcoming round of games.
