Jay Ajayi Plans To Play Despite Fractured Back

Sep 28, 2018 8:06 AM

Jay Ajayi has a small fracture in his back, but plans to play when the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

"You just have to roll with it until it heals on its own," he said. "You just have to protect it."

Ajayi injured his back in the first quarter of Philadelphia's Week 2 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He sat out last week's victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

The running back will be a free agent after the season.

Doug Baldwin 'Ready To Go' Following Knee Injury

Sep 28, 2018 8:01 AM

Doug Baldwin says he's "ready to go" after missing the Seattle Seahawks' last two games with a knee injury.

Baldwin is hoping Seattle's training staff clears him for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

"Again, that's going to be their call," he said. "There's a lot of things that go into it, obviously the precautionary reasons of making sure that I'm healthy fully, so that I can go for the rest of the season, not just this game. And I get that. But as a competitor and somebody that hasn't missed games that often, who had an 89-game streak, I feel like I know my body pretty well, so I feel like I'm ready to go."

Baldwin returned to practice this week for the first time since suffering an MCL sprain early in Seattle's opener at Denver.

Patriots Place Rex Burkhead On Injured Reserve

Sep 26, 2018 12:25 PM

The New England Patriots have placed Rex Burkhead on injured reserve.

Burkhead, who was on the injury report with a concussion the week after a season-opening win over the Houston Texans, left Sunday night's loss against the Detroit Lions in the third quarter. The team reported he had a neck injury.

Without Burkhead, whom the Patriots had signed to a three-year, $9.75 million free-agent contract in the offseason, first-round draft choice Sony Michel becomes the top option at running back, with James White filling the "passing back" role and Kenjon Barner - who agreed to terms on Tuesday to return to the team -- adding depth.

Falcons Lose Ricardo Allen To Season-Ending Achilles Tear

Sep 24, 2018 11:21 AM

Ricardo Allen will miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles tendon tear.

Allen was Atlanta's starting free safety.

The Falcons previously have lost strong safety Keanu Neal to a season-ending injury.

The loss of Allen, a designate "chief'' as a team leader and one of the smartest players on defense, leaves the Falcons decimated at the safety position.

49ers Fear Jimmy Garoppolo Suffered Torn ACL In Left Knee

Sep 23, 2018 6:18 PM

The San Francisco 49ers fear Jimmy Garoppolo tore the ACL in his left knee.

Garoppolo will have an MRI on Monday to confirm the extent of the injury, but the initial prognosis within the team is not positive.

"Any time you lose your starting quarterback, that's a big deal," Kyle Shanahan said. "It was when we lost our starting running back [Jerick McKinnon] too. So obviously -- I feel for [Garoppolo], personally; I know how disappointed he is. I haven't got a chance to see him yet, but I feel for him."

After gaining 13 yards, Garoppolo had the choice between stepping out of bounds or staying in and taking a hit from a defender. He took an awkward step with his left foot near the sideline, then rammed into Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson at Kansas City's 7-yard line.
