NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Playoffs Schedule and More
January 16, 2016
Today’s the day. The NFL Divisional Round gets going at 4:35 PM ET when the Chiefs visit the Patriots. After that, we’ll get to see the Packers and Cardinals on the NFC side. That said, let’s check out today’s wrap up before we settle in.
The Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger is questionable for their game against the Broncos, but the good news is that he was able to put in a full practice yesterday.
Roethlisberger’s recovery is nothing short of surprising. He tore ligaments in his shoulder during the Wild Card game against the Bengals. He won’t have No. 1 WR Antonio Brown to throw to, however.

Carson Palmer is probable for today’s Divisional Round matchup against the Packers. He’s been nursing a finger injury, but has put in full practices this week.
Palmer destroyed the Packers defense the last time these two teams met, and he’ll be looking for the same result here.
Speaking of the Packers, they’ve got a few notable injury concerns themselves. The good news is that Richard Rodgers and Eddie Lacy are questionable and should be good to go here.
As for Davante Adams, he’ll be out for today’s game due to his knee injury. He didn’t practice at all this week, so it comes as no surprise.
Ted Ginn of the Panthers wasn’t able to practice yesterday, but he says he plans on playing tomorrow against the Seahawks.
Ginn is fighting off a knee injury and hasn’t played since Week 16.
The Chiefs have a trio of questionable players for today’s game against the Patriots. Albert Wilson, Spencer Ware and Jeremy Maclin all got the Q tag.
Wilson and Ware seem a little more likely to take the field than Maclin does. Regardless, the Chiefs will have their hands full trying to snag the upset here.
