NFL News: Player News and Updates for 9/11/15
NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 1 Schedule and More
September 11, 2015
Now that the Steelers and Patriots have finished up, the 2015 NFL regular season has begun. While we’re waiting on the rest of the games, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations in our daily check-in with the league news.
Steelers-Patriots Wrap-Up: The Patriots couldn’t have begun their season much better than they did last night, dominating the Steelers in a Week 1 win that was a lot more lopsided than the 28-21 score would indicate.
Tom Brady was in fine form, going 25-of-32 for 288 yards and four touchdowns--three of them to Rob Gronkowski, who caught five balls for 94 yards in all. Julian Edelman would help out with 11 receptions for 97 yards.
DeAngelo Williams ran well on the other side in place of the suspended LeVeon Bell, posting 21 carries for 127 yards. Antonio Brown would lead the receivers with nine receptions for 133 yards and a late cosmetic score.

The Browns bolstered their RB corps yesterday, picking up former Seahawk Robert Turbin off waivers.
Turbin and Seattle agreed to an injury settlement; he’s still getting over an ankle injury and won’t be ready to hit the field for a little while yet.
The Chargers might be down another tight end during their season opener against the Lions. Ladarius Green has been diagnosed with a concussion.
Green didn’t practice yesterday, so his status for Sunday is very much in doubt at this point.
There’s been an air of mystery in Chicago lately surrounding WR Alshon Jeffery and his calf injury. He was limited in practice yesterday, the second straight day he’s had that designation.
Jeffery will be evaluated today at practice to see where he’s at injury-wise. He’s still very much questionable for Sunday’s game against the Packers.
