Tom Brady Downplays Elbow, Toe Injuries

Dec 6, 2019 8:50 AM

Tom Brady was limited in practice Thursday with what the New England Patriots listed as toe and right elbow injuries.

"That might be the first time my toe's ever been on the injury report. You know us Patriots. We're pretty diligent about listing everything, so I guess we have to make mention of my toe now as well," Brady said with a laugh.

The quarterback then joked about his elbow.

"Isn't there some HIPAA violation or something like that, when I start talking about all my injuries? I'm doing pretty good," he said. "At this time of the year, I'll take it. I'll take anything if I'm still able to go out there and feel like I can play my best. I'm feeling really good, really positive about this week. We have a really great challenge ahead of us."

Josh Jacobs Playing Through Shoulder Fracture

Dec 5, 2019 9:15 AM

Josh Jacobs has revealed on social media that he has been playing with a fractured shoulder since Week 7.

"I just play on it," Jacobs wrote on Snapchat.

The Oakland Raiders running back ranks fourth in the NFL with 1,061 rushing yards this season.

"Josh is special," Derek Carr said. "If Josh wasn't able to play, I would completely understand, with what he's dealing with. But the fact that he keeps suiting up and going out there and not only running, but running with the style that he runs with, I don't think enough can be said about that guy."

Jacobs initially injured his shoulder doling out a hit against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Oct. 20 and left the game before returning.

Cam Newton To Undergo Foot Surgery

Dec 4, 2019 11:37 AM

Cam Newton will undergo surgery on his left foot.

Newton reaggravated the Lisfranc injury in a Week 2 loss and hasn't played since.

Newton visited with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson last month, and the decision at that time was he would not have surgery.

Newton's injury raised speculation that his future with the Carolina Panthers could be over, but David Tepper said three weeks ago and reiterated on Tuesday that no decision has been made and wouldn't be made until Newton was healthy.

Dalvin Cook Avoids Major Injury To Shoulder

Dec 3, 2019 9:25 AM

Dalvin Cook suffered a right shoulder injury in the second half of the Minnesota Vikings' 37-30 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night.

Cook was tripped up and fumbled on Minnesota's second drive of the third quarter. He remained on the ground for several minutes and looked to be in severe pain while being tended to by athletic trainers.

"He just hit me right on what I had when we played the Broncos [on Nov. 17]," Cook said. "He hit me right on it when he went to punch for the ball. It was kind of like a different feeling. It was different. But he got me in a good spot."

Despite remaining on the sideline after being evaluated in the locker room, the running back said he felt like he could have returned to the game if needed, but the Vikings chose to keep him out for "precautionary" reasons.

Cook said he'll "definitely" be ready to play in Week 14 when the Vikings host the Detroit Lions.

Saquon Barkley Won't Accept Sitting Out Remainder Of 2019

Nov 12, 2019 3:58 PM

Saquon Barkley isn't 100 percent and the New York Giants have a 2-8 record, but he still won't accept getting shut down for the season.

Barkley underwent an X-ray on shoulder after Sunday's loss to the New York Jets.

Barkley missed three games last month due to a high ankle sprain. Since returning to action, Barkley is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry after averaging 6.4 per carry initially this season.

"The mindset of sitting me out and resting me for the rest of the season is beyond me," Barkley said. "I do not agree with it. It won't happen. I'm going to keep going until I can't go no more. That's the player I am and I'm going to do it for my teammates."

At some point, he may have suffered an injury as well. The New York Giants running back was seen entering the X-ray room by reporters following the game. Pat Shurmur didn't elaborate on a possible injury, but said Barkley "got banged up a little bit today."

Barkley missed three games earlier this season due to a high ankle sprain.

Patrick Mahomes Officially Named Chiefs' Starter For Week 10

Nov 8, 2019 3:48 PM

Patrick Mahomes will return to the Kansas City Chiefs for Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.

"I'm in a good spot,'' Mahomes said after the Chiefs concluded their practice week on Friday. "I'm ready to get out there.''

Mahomes dislocated his right kneecap in an Oct. 17 game against the Denver Broncos.

"I knew I had a chance once I talked to those doctors and they said as long as I was functioning well, moving well, I could play this week,'' Mahomes said. "Coach [Andy] Reid still wanted me to take it day by day. I went out here in practice and took the reps and I haven't had any pain or any setbacks and so as long as we keep going with that I'm glad to be back out there.''

Brandin Cooks 'Can't Wait To Get Back On The Field This Year'

Nov 8, 2019 7:55 AM

Brandin Cooks won't play this weekend, but he's hopeful that a series of concussions won't sideline him for the remainder of the season.

Cooks made the trip to meet with doctors about the concussion he suffered in Week 8.

"Whether some like it or not I'm far from that end destination when it comes to this game," Cooks wrote on Instgram. "I’m thankful that this soon will be something in the past. Time and time again my God is faithful and blessed nothing serious. Can’t wait to get back on the field this year. Like my good ole pal Spongebob Squarepants says ‘I’m ready I’m ready I’m ready . . . '"
