Packers can't afford serious Cobb injury

The OL protection is breaking down, ESPN's Mark Dominik told SportsCenter: "What's happening there, that makes me nervous, is the fact that I think Jameis Winston is now getting scared in the pocket."


Jeremy Fowler ESPN Senior NFL Writer 

One piece of good news for the Steelers from an unsettling 43-19 loss to the Bills was first-round pick Bud Dupree doesn't have a serious injury. He left the game with a right foot issue, but coach Mike Tomlin told reporters after the game the issue is insignificant, just soreness.

RG III was cleared to play vs. the Ravens on Saturday night, until he wasn't, leaving the Washington QB situation up in the air. "We have to find out how Robert is," Gruden said. "[Griffin] has to go through the protocol and get retested. We'll see how he's doing then and make our decision. ... I'm not going to announce anything [tonight], and there is no controversy." Confusion

Here's an encouraging sign: Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson, coming off hamstring injury, played 26 of the 38 first-team defensive snaps. #nyj

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Look for the Jets to start paring their roster today. These players should be worried because they didn't have any offensive or defensive snaps last night: TJ Graham, Saalim Hakim, Curtis Brown, Keon Lyn, Javier Arenas, Keith Lewis, Austin Hill and Jonathon Rumph. Walt Powell falls into the category, but he may have saved himself with a PR TD.

Following up on what Adam Schefter reported earlier, I'm also told that Leonard Williams (knee) should be OK. MRI to make sure.

CB makes great play then throws it all away

Intercepting Peyton Manning is good, but it seems that Kenneth Acker needs to hold on to the ball. His casual toss over his shoulder was actually a fumble -- recovered by one of his teammates, luckily for Acker.
