Sources tell ESPN that suspended Josh Gordon is exploring the possibility of playing the rest of the year in the Canadian Football League.

The Browns would have to give Gordon permission to do this, which the Cleveland Plain Dealer says they will not do. Understandably so, as they'd be exposing their most talented player -- one they have under contract very cheaply through 2016 -- to injury without any on-field benefit. Furthermore, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says CFL rules don't allow players under NFL contracts to play in the CFL -- only cut players can go north of the border. It's a nice idea for Gordon to stay in shape and have some structure during his suspension, but this one is not going to happen.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said he always planned to start Bryce Petty over the final month of the season.

"We could have won 45-0, (Bryce) was going to start the last four games," Bowles said after Monday night's blowout loss. "That's the slot we had penciled for him, that's a good time to take a look at him." It is unclear why Petty would be good enough for the final four games and not the final six, but at least the correct decision has finally been made. Even though it is pretty clear Petty is not the long-term answer, the Jets at least need to see it on the field before this offseason.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports people close to Earl Thomas (broken leg, injured reserve) said the safety will "be okay" and "just needs time."

Thomas tweeted he was considering retirement after breaking his leg on Sunday night, and Adam Schefter gave credence to the tweet in a report on Monday night. Schefter said the Seahawks do not believe he is really considering retirement, however, and this report seems to suggest the retirement talk is just an (understandable) emotional reaction. Thomas should be back next season.

Coach Todd Bowles said Bryce Petty will start the Jets' final four games.

Owners of Ryan Fitzpatrick can release him. Petty will get starts at the 49ers, vs. the Dolphins, at the Patriots, and vs. the Bills to close out the year. At 3-9, it makes sense for the Jets to get a look at Petty to see if they have anything here. By the looks of his first few NFL appearances, chances are slim. He has a big arm, but struggles with accuracy. Petty's insertion to the lineup is a big downgrade to Brandon Marshall, but might give Robby Anderson a slight boost.

In relief of a benched Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty completed just 11-of-25 passes for 135 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Jets' 41-10, Week 13 loss to the Colts on Monday night.

Fitzpatrick was benched after completing 5-of-12 passes for 81 yards and an interception in the first half. Petty took over on the first possession of the third quarter with the Jets getting railroaded 31-3. Petty's numbers look worse than they could have been, as he was hurt badly by drops, but he still wasn't very good. His touchdown was a 40-yarder to Robby Anderson where the defensive back fell down on the play. And one of Petty's interceptions was a deep-ball heave down the middle. He was taking shots with the Jets getting stomped, which was nice to see. At 3-9, the Jets will probably give the rest of the starts to Petty. They travel to San Francisco next Sunday.

Dwayne Allen caught 4-of-4 targets for 72 yards and three touchdowns in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Jets on Monday night.

Talk about efficiency. Allen entered Monday night with two touchdowns through 12 weeks. He and Dennis Pitta were the kings of tight ends in Week 13, combining for five touchdowns after they'd mustered two combined on the year. Allen's first two touchdowns against the Jets were both wide-open, walk-in scores, the first coming from seven yards out and the second from 21 yards away. His third score was a 23-yarder with the defender draped all over Allen in the end zone. He'll be tough to trust as more than a TE2 next week against the Colts, but tight end is wholly unpredictable.

T.Y. Hilton caught 9-of-10 targets for 146 yards in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Jets.

After suffering a back injury in the Thanksgiving game against the Steelers, Hilton seemed back to normal in this one. He simply did whatever he wanted with the Jets' defensive backs giving him big cushions at the line of scrimmage, probably as a way not to get beat deep. Hilton didn't do much damage on deep balls, but he turned short-to-medium catches into chink yards with his after-catch ability. The only target he didn't catch was a bad drop. Hilton and the Colts head back to their home dome next week against the Texans where Hilton will be a locked-in WR1.
Dec 5 - 11:19 PM

Andrew Luck completed 22-of-28 passes for 278 yards and four touchdowns in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Jets on Monday night.

With the Colts stomping the Jets 41-10 with about 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter, coach Chuck Pagano called off the dogs and replaced Luck with Scott Tolzien. It was quite the return from a Week 11 concussion for Luck after he missed the Thanksgiving night game. Luck found Dwayne Allen for wide-open seven- and 21-yard touchdown passes on the Colts' first two possessions. The two later hooked up for a third score from 23 yards out before halftime. That time, the Jets actually covered Allen, but he made a great catch. Luck's fourth score was a three-yarder to Donte Moncrief to make it 30-3. His favorite receiver on the night, T.Y. Hilton, racked nine catches and 146 yards on 10 targets, doing whatever he wanted against soft coverage. The Colts will host the Texans in Week 14 where Luck will be an elite QB1 play.
Dec 5 - 11:08 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched after completing 5-of-12 passes for 81 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the first half Week 13 against the Colts.

Dreadful. The Jets were getting blasted 24-3 at halftime, and the Colts scored another touchdown on the first possession of the third quarter to make it 31-3 before Bryce Petty came into the game to a round of applause. The Jets went three-and-out on their first two possessions of the game, and Fitzpatrick threw a terrible pick into double-coverage just before halftime. Well on their way to 3-9, the Jets may as well give Petty the reins the remainder of the year.
Dec 5 - 10:22 PM

Appearing on ESPN's Monday Night Football halftime show, Adam Schefter reported Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (broken leg, injured reserve) is "still considering retirement."

Not many people took Thomas' Sunday night halftime tweet seriously, but it apparently wasn't a complete lark. However, per Schefter, the Seahawks don't believe he's truly considering the possibility, and that it's just an "emotional" response. Still only 27, Thomas is signed through 2018. He remains one of the best defensive backs in the league. We should see Thomas on the field in 2017. His broken leg does not require surgery.
Dec 5 - 10:01 PM

T.Y. Hilton (back) is active for Week 13 against the Jets.

As expected. Hilton will be a rock-solid WR1 against a burnt-to-crisp Jets pass defense. Inactive for the Colts are OLB Robert Mathis, CB Patrick Robinson, SS Clayton Geathers, ILB Deon King, OT Le'Raven Clark, OG Austin Blythe, DE Lavar Edwards.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis believes Devontae Booker was about to get "overtaken" by Kapri Bibbs before Bibbs suffered a year-ending ankle injury.

Grain of salt advised here because Klis was wrong about Bibbs potentially overtaking Booker once before, and because he allowed this was entirely his own opinion/guess by using the phrase "in my estimation." Still, it's a possible indication that the Broncos are indeed growing frustrated with Booker's lack of decisiveness and inability to generate positive gains. He has averaged just 2.80 yards per carry over the last five games. The Broncos claimed longtime Gary Kubiak pal Justin Forsett off waivers on Monday, and it would not be surprising if Forsett were mixed into the game plan as soon as Week 14 at Tennessee.
