James Conner Doesn't Expect To Play Week 16

Dec 20, 2018 3:09 PM

James Conner does not expect to play in Week 16. 

Conner has missed the past two games for the Pittsburgh Steelers with an ankle injury.

"I'm trying," Conner said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "It's day by day. These high-ankle sprains are deceiving. I can walk around fine, I'm not limping around, but when I'm out there on the field, cutting and stuff, I'm just not ready yet."

Josh Gordon has announced he will be taking a mental health break by leaving the New England Patriots.

"I take my mental health very seriously at this point to ensure I remain able to perform at the highest level," wrote Gordon in a statement. "I have recently felt like I could have a better grasp on things mentally. With that said, I will be stepping away from the football field for a bit to focus on my mental health. 

"I would like to thank Coach Belichick, Mr. Kraft, as well as countless others within the Patriots organization for their continued support. I want to thank my fans for their support as well as I continue down the path getting back to 100%."

A source told ESPN's Dan Graziano that Gordon is facing a potential suspension for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement under the NFL's drug policy.

Odell Beckham Jr. has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Beckham is dealing with a quadriceps injury.

Beckham sustained the injury on the final play of a Nov. 25 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kareem Hunt Working With NFL On Treatment, Counseling Program

Dec 9, 2018 10:51 AM

Kareem Hunt has started working with the NFL on a treatment and counseling program.

Hunt has voluntarily sought counseling after being involved in multiple violent off-the-field incidents this past year, all of which the league is now taking into consideration for potential future discipline.

The NFL's investigation is ongoing.

TMZ published a video on Nov. 30 of Hunt shoving and kicking a woman in a hotel hallway last February. The NFL placed Hunt on the commissioner's exempt list later that day, shortly before the Chiefs released him.
