Donald Brown admitted that "I need to make more guys miss."

Operating without center Nick Hardwick (IR, neck) and Ryan Mathews (week to week, knee), the Chargers run game has been anemic. Over the last two weeks, Brown has reverted to "Dammit Donald" status while rushing 41 times for 81 yards (1.97 YPC) and no touchdowns. "It's a collective effort. It starts with me," Brown said. "I need to make more guys miss. It doesn't matter who's blocked or unblocked, and just make more plays." Brown will be a poor bet to get going against the Jets' top-ranked run defense.

The NFL admitted Tuesday the unsportsmanlike conduct flag thrown on Chiefs S Husain Abdullah Monday night was incorrect.

The NFL (no fun league) has a rule that says players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations or demonstrations while on the ground. However, Abdullah is Muslim and dropped to his knees in prayer after a pick-6 on Tom Brady Monday night. "The officiating mechanic in this situation is not to flag a player who goes to the ground as part of religious expression," said league spokesman Michael Signora. Many players go to one knee for religious reasons in the end zone, a move recently made famous by Tim Tebow.

Free agent WR Jeremy Gallon is working out for the Colts Tuesday.

Gallon, a seventh-round pick of the Patriots this season, is a candidate to fill Da'Rick Rogers' roster spot. Rogers was waived Monday after getting arrested on DUI charges.

Carson Palmer said the nerve in his shoulder hasn't progressed as much as he had hoped.

Palmer still thinks he can prove to coaches he's capable of starting Sunday's game at Denver. But nerve issues in throwing shoulders sap arm strength, a major concern for a player who needs the deep ball to be effective. Given how well Drew Stanton performed in the Week 3 upset of the 49ers, it's possible the Cardinals will err on the side of caution with Palmer. Consider him questionable for now.

Blake Bortles attempted just three passes of more than 15 yards in Sunday's loss at San Diego.

Bortles was in a tough spot for his first NFL start, so OC Jeff Fisch kept it simple. The No. 3 overall pick was asked to execute a ton of screens, hitches and short passes off bootlegs, which led to a strong 29-of-37 completion rate. But that's not really Bortles' game, as he's an aggressive downfield thrower and playmaker. Expect the chains to be taken off a bit in Week 5, when the Jags have a plus home matchup against a bad and banged up Steelers defense. Bortles will be a fine QB2 with a high floor thanks to his running ability.

Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to make his 2014 debut in Sunday night's game at New England.

We'd keep expectations in check initially as Jones practiced a grand total of one time during the offseason program and training camp. But based on talent alone, he'll pass up Mohamed Sanu quickly for outside receiving duties and become a major red-zone threat. Jones posted a 51-712-10 line last year despite playing on just 50.0 percent of the snaps. "Oh yes, I can't wait," OC Hue Jackson said when asked about Jones' return. "He can run and catch. Not only does he take the top off, he scores a lot of touchdowns, too."

Coach Ron Rivera admitted that "you don't want to unleash" Cam Newton unless he's "ready to be unleashed."

Newton's ankle and rib injuries have sapped what makes him so electric for both the Panthers and fantasy owners -- running ability. Newton is averaging 2.6 rushing attempts per game this season after averaging 7.5 through his first three seasons. "I wish I could say, 'Hey! We're going to cut him loose this week!'" OC Mike Shula said. "I don't want to lie to you.' That's something we're going to talk about this week. It's something we have to monitor every week for sure. But he's getting healthier and ... we'll see." Until Newton starts running again, he'll only be a borderline QB1.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Raiders' first look for their new head coach will be Jon Gruden.

Gruden, the former Raiders head coach and current Monday Night Football color analyst, has been connected to a homecoming ever since leaving the Bucs in 2008. It's obvious he'd be the first choice for close friend and owner Mark Davis. However, there's a lot of doubt if this is the right time for Gruden to go back to Oakland. GM Reggie McKenzie has put together one of the worst teams in the NFL by trading for guys like Matt Flynn/Matt Schaub, drafting guys like D.J. Hayden/Menelik Watson and blowing cap space on washed-up veterans like Maurice Jones-Drew. No coach could make it work with this roster -- not even Spider 2 Y Banana.
