Eagles activate CB Mills from PUP list

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

The Philadelphia Eagles activated cornerback Jalen Mills from the physically unable to perform list ahead of their Sunday night matchup at the Dallas Cowboys. Mills is expected to start Sunday after practicing this week. It's taken nearly a year for Mills to recover fully from a foot injury sustained in the Eagles' win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in London of Week 8 in 2018.

NFL notebook: Mahomes (knee) might be back in month

Friday, October 18th, 2019

An MRI exam confirmed Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap in Kansas City's Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos, but he sustained no other significant damage, according to multiple reports on Friday. ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing league sources, tweeted that the MRI result was a "best-case scenario." That means a limited absence for the reigning league Most Valuable Player of "about three games," Schefter reported. Mahomes, 24, entered the game playing on a tender left ankle he sprained in the season opener and aggravated several times, including Sunday in a home loss to the Houston Texans.

Week 7 Running Back DFS Picks: Zeke Elliott worth the risk at his price

Friday, October 18th, 2019

Christian McCaffrey is on bye and Alvin Kamara is battling two separate injuries that will likely sideline him this week, but there is always an array of daily fantasy options to consider at the pivotal RB position. As usual, I've weighed a combination of factors — individual talent, offensive line play, key injuries, and defensive matchup — to separate the budget-friendly plays from the salaries not worth paying. Fantasy gamers have learned to target the Cincinnati Bengals this season, and losing both starting corners to injury isn't going to help this reeling defense.

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie tight end Josh Oliver will make his NFL debut at Cincinnati - and it might come in a starting role. Oliver was a full participant in practice for the second consecutive day Friday, and coach Doug Marrone says he won't be limited Sunday against the Bengals (0-6). ''It was good that he was able to go full later in the week,'' Marrone said.

NFL news and notes: Rams noncommittal on Ramsey’s status, Okung could return this week

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

Jalen Ramsey is on the Los Angeles Rams' roster, but we have no idea if he will play this week or not. Los Angeles acquired star cornerback Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars for their 2020 and 2021 first-round picks in addition to a 2021 fourth-round pick on Wednesday, but Rams head coach Sean McVay might not want to put the team's newest addition to work right away. Ramsey has missed the last three games with a back injury, though some reports suggest it was a ploy to get the Jaguars to give into his trade request.

Jalen Ramsey seems happy to be out of Jacksonville: ‘I just feel free’

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

The Jaguars' owner said he didn't want to trade Ramsey, arguably the best cornerback in the NFL, but perhaps the Jaguars felt forced into a move when Ramsey missed multiple games with a curiously timed back injury. The Rams acquired Ramsey in a trade this week for a hefty price, but they're clearly getting one of the NFL's most talented players. And it sounds like they're getting a happy player too.
