In the world of NFL updates, here are some of the top updates as reported by Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport.
The Tennessee Titans made it clear this week that they have no intentions of trading star running back Derrick Henry, despite receiving inquiries from multiple teams. This decision reaffirms their commitment to the Pro Bowl running back.
Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders are at a crossroads, and their decision on whether to pursue trading players or continue their playoff push hinges on the outcome of Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The result of this pivotal matchup will likely shape their course of action.
On the Philadelphia Eagles' side, newly-acquired safety Kevin Byard is poised to make his debut against Washington. Eagles' head coach Nick Sirianni expressed confidence in Byard's performance during practice, and fans can look forward to seeing him on the field.
The Indianapolis Colts are keeping a close eye on running back Zach Moss, who is listed as questionable for their upcoming game against the Saints due to elbow and heel injuries. Moss will evaluate his condition during pre-game warmups before making a final decision on his availability.
Despite facing a hamstring injury, Seattle Seahawks' wide receiver Tyler Lockett is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. This will be a relief for Seahawks fans as they look forward to Lockett's contributions.
However, the Houston Texans will be without wide receiver Robert Woods for the next 2-3 weeks due to a foot injury, forcing him to miss today's game against the Panthers.
The Carolina Panthers' star pass-rusher, Brian Burns, is determined to play despite an elbow injury sustained in practice. He may not be at full strength, but his determination is commendable. Linebacker Frankie Luvu, who has a hip issue, is listed as questionable but is expected to take the field.
For the Los Angeles Chargers, wide receiver Josh Palmer and tight end Gerald Everett are both questionable with knee and hip injuries, respectively. Their availability will be determined closer to game time.
In Miami, the Dolphins are likely to have running back Raheem Mostert in the lineup, but safety Jevon Holland, who is dealing with a concussion, is not expected to play. The status of cornerback Xavien Howard remains uncertain, pending his readiness to play at full capacity.
In New Orleans, the Saints' trio of stars—quarterback Taysom Hill, safety Tyrann Mathieu (foot), and safety Marcus Maye (illness)—are all expected to take the field today, despite being listed as questionable.
The Seattle Seahawks should be operating at full strength, as both wide receiver Tyler Lockett and safety Jamal Adams, though questionable, are anticipated to play.
For the Washington Commanders, wide receiver Curtis Samuel, dealing with a foot injury, is a game-time decision. There is optimism surrounding his status, but the team will assess his condition during warmups.
In Cleveland, running back Jerome Ford, listed as questionable due to a sprained ankle, intends to play against the Seahawks, pending a pre-game evaluation of his fitness.
The New York Giants can breathe a sigh of relief as quarterback Daniel Jones' disk injury is not expected to end his season, despite significant weakness on his left side.
Finally, Browns fans will have to wait a little longer for the return of quarterback Deshaun Watson, who will miss today's game. PJ Walker will once again take the reins. In Chicago, quarterback Justin Fields could return to practice next week, though his return to the field remains uncertain.
