NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 9 Schedule and More
November 7, 2015
We’ve got just one more day to wait for the bulk of the Week 9 games in the NFL, and the anticipation is running high. While we’re waiting, let’s take our daily look at the headlines and see what’s happening out there.
The Saints Willie Snead should be good to go for tomorrow’s game against the Titans. Snead is dealing with a knee bruise but was able to practice Thursday and yesterday. He’s listed as probable.

We all pretty much expected this, but the Bears officially ruled out RB Matt Forte yesterday for the team’s Week 9 Monday night game against the Chargers.
Forte is still classified as “day-to-day” with his MCL injury, but will probably miss multiple weeks. In his place, Jeremy Langford will make his first NFL start in San Diego on “Monday Night Football.”
The Rams have a question mark in their backfield this week with Tre Mason’s ankle injury. The general feeling is that he should be able to go against the Vikings tomorrow, but he’s listed as questionable.
If Mason can’t go, more of the load will fall on fellow RB Todd Gurley.
Let’s check out a couple of Buccaneers injury items. First off, there’s WR Vincent Jackson. He’s been ruled out of tomorrow’s game against the Giants with a knee injury. Jackson has been sidelined since Week 7.
As for Austin Seferian-Jenkins, he’s been ruled as questionable with his shoulder injury. The good news here is that he practiced in full yesterday. Still, it’ll probably be close to game-time before we know what his status is.
The Cowboys’ Dez Bryant is officially listed as probable for Week 9 against the Eagles. He’ll have himself a big workload as the team tries to gain some traction in the division.
The Broncos’ Vernon Davis is going to be active tomorrow in his debut for his new team. The feeling seems to be that he’ll play a little less than half the team’s snaps as he gets acclimated to the surroundings in Denver.
As for RB Ronnie Hillman, he’s listed as questionable with his thigh injury. He was hurt in Thursday’s practice but was able to get back in there yesterday. If he can’t go, it’ll be a heavy C.J. Anderson day against the woeful Colts run defense.
