The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reported it "will be a stretch" for Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) to play Week 5.
Kendricks aggravated his hamstring injury early in the first quarter Week 4 against the Redskins. McLane reported the aggravation knocked Kendricks' hamstring "back to where it was two weeks ago." Rookie Jordan Hicks has 23 tackles and an interception filling in for Kendricks over the last three weeks.
Newsday's Bob Glauber reports the Giants are hopeful Jason-Pierre Paul (hand) can return for the final four games of the season.
"If he gets back for four games, that would be good. If it's more, that would be a bonus," a source said. "It's still possible he doesn't come back [this year]." Bleacher Report's Jason Cole said Pierre-Paul plans to report to the Giants in the next two weeks.
Bills GM Doug Whaley said Sammy Watkins' calf injury is not a "long-term" concern.
"Everything points to that it’s not that severe," said Whaley. "We’re hoping to see how he responds this week. We have our fingers crossed that he may be in this week." Watkins is at best questionable for Week 5, but it sounds like he should be back in the next couple weeks. The Bills' passing offense struggled with Watkins sidelined against the Giants.
Free agent RB Trent Richardson is working out for the Bills on Tuesday.
The Bills are dealing with injuries to both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion). Richardson was predictably terrible for the Raiders this preseason, but the Bills are desperate. Richardson would play behind Boobie Dixon and probably even Cierre Wood even if he signs.
Bucs signed K Connor Barth to a two-year deal.
Barth was released in favor of Kyle Brindza at final cuts. The Bucs have reversed the transaction a month later. Barth has converted 85.3 percent of his field goals across seven seasons including an 84.3 rate in five seasons with Tampa Bay. The Bucs also worked out Randy Bullock, Kai Forbath and Billy Cundiff before settling on Barth.
In a radio interview, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Dez Bryant (broken foot) has a chance to return following the team's Week 6 bye.
Stephen Jones said the same thing two weeks ago. Reports on Bryant's timeline have varied wildly, but Dallas choosing not to place Bryant on injured reserve-designated for return suggests he should be back by early November. Terrance Williams has managed seven catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns in three games as the Cowboys' No. 1 receiver with Bryant sidelined.
Roddy White expressed discontent with his role in the Falcons' offense, saying he wants "to catch passes."
White believes he has been getting open, but said he is "not in the progression" for Matt Ryan. White has two catches total in the last three games and has been targeted just five times. He is clearly behind Leonard Hankerson in the pecking order right now, and unless these comments change something, he should continue to play behind Handerson moving forward. White can be dropped in redraft leagues.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said WR Breshad Perriman (knee) did not suffer a new injury when he appeared to pull up during a pregame workout prior to Week 3.
Perriman underwent a knee scope less than a week after the incident, but Harbaugh said the scope dealt with the original injury. "It's just a slow-healing deal," Harbaugh said. "He's had probably one of the all-time slowest healing sprained PCLs ever. That's nothing against him. It's just the way it is." There is no timetable on Perriman's return. He can be dropped in redraft leagues.
