Williams has not yet returned to practice since undergoing knee surgery and remains inactive this week

Trevor Siemian, Denver Broncos, foot: Siemian has a foot sprain that will sideline him this week. He spent the better part of the week in a walking boot and was unable to do enough when testing it Friday to convince the medical staff he should play. He has been fit with an orthotic device for his cleats, but that won’t matter for this week. Paxton Lynch is expected to start in his place.

Robert Woods, Buffalo Bills, knee: Woods remains out with a knee injury, but he is off crutches and told reporters this week he hopes to return before the end of the season.

DeAngelo Williams, Pittsburgh Steelers, knee: Williams has not yet returned to practice since undergoing knee surgery and remains inactive this week.

Darrius Heyward-Bey, Pittsburgh Steelers, foot: Heyward-Bey was still not able to practice at all this week due to his injured foot and has already been ruled out for Sunday. This will be his fourth consecutive missed game.

I don’t see Denver coming into Jacksonville and blowing the Jags out to the point of having a huge lead (taking away junk-time scoring), but certainly this will be tough. The Broncos have held opposing wide receivers to fewer than nine points in five of their past nine games and while, yes, Hill had himself a day last week and yes, Robinson is capable of going off at any moment, given what we’ve seen of both the Denver secondary and the Bortles/Robinson connection this season, A-Rob is merely a WR3 for me this week, not the WR1 he was drafted as.

Emmanuel Sanders, Broncos: See, here’s some love, Jags fans. The best defense in the NFL the past four games in terms of passing yards allowed per game belongs to the Jaguars, and they have allowed the second-fewest pass plays of 20-plus yards this season. It’s hard to get a big pass play on them, their corners are playing pretty well this season and while Sanders had the huge game last week against Kansas City, that was his first score since Week 4. Since Week 5, the Jags have allowed just five wide receiver touchdowns and, as of this writing (early Thursday morning), Trevor Siemian missed practice and is banged-up. Maybe he plays, but there’s a chance he does so at less than 100 percent, which doesn’t help either. On the road at Jacksonville, I expect a run-heavy game script for the Broncos, making Sanders just a WR3 for me this week.

Todd Gurley, Rams: A rookie quarterback making his third start ever on the road in Foxboro, Massachusetts — what could go wrong? Expect the Patriots to stack the box to stop Gurley, as teams have done all season. Gurley is averaging just 1.63 yards before first contact per carry this season (third worst in the NFL), and wouldn’t you know it, the Patriots are allowing the third-fewest yards before first contact per carry this season. Also, they have not allowed a running back to rush for a score in eight of their past nine games.

Team Rice Pro Bowl 2016 roster: Odell Beckham Jr., Adrian Peterson headline offense-heavy team

The Pro Bowl kicks off Sunday and it features teams crafted by Hall of Fame wide receivers Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice.

In the most declined Pro Bowl ever, a total of 133 players were selected for a game that will have just 86 players in action. On Team Rice, all three quarterbacks are replacements for players that dropped out, as only Team Irvin’s Russell Wilson actually made it when the teams were first announced.

After it was played in Glendale, Ariz. in 2015, the Pro Bowl is back in Hawaii in 2016 and set to air at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN 2. Below we take a look at the roster of Team Rice.

While Michael Irvin followed two offensive picks with three straight defensive picks, Jerry Rice addressed defense with just one of his first five picks. Instead, he added two quarterbacks and two wide receivers in the first five picks, adding them to a roster that already featured Odell Beckham Jr. as captain.

In a game where defense isn’t taken very seriously, the decision to target passers and receivers early is probably a sound one for Rice, who also snagged the first running back off the board by taking Adrian Peterson with his seventh selection.

Eli Manning, 35, was Rice’s first selection, and he is the only quarterback in the game who is older than 27, so his veteran leadership might be especially helpful Sunday.

Team Rice has an interesting blend of veterans participating in a Pro Bowl for possibly the last time and young players who have long careers ahead of them. With his second pick, Rice picked second-year pass rusher Khalil Mack, but in a game where defensive backs often make the difference, he’ll have young players like Marcus Peters and Jason Verrett mixed in with veterans like Brent Grimes and Charles Woodson.

The special teams weren’t actually selected during the Pro Bowl Draft by Rice and were pre-determined Tuesday, one day before Irvin and Rice picked teams. While kickers and punters typically don’t make much impact on Pro Bowls (unless they’re getting crushed by Sean Taylor), the addition of Tyler Lockett could be a big one for Team Rice. The rookie is as dangerous as any player with the ball in his hands and will likely get offensive touches as kickoff returns aren’t allowed by Pro Bowl rules.

NFL Combine 2015 results: 40-yard dash times for defensive backs

The defensive backs were the last group to participate in the 40-yard dash at the 2015 NFL Combine, wrapping up the performances in the Combine’s most popular drill Monday.

Highlighting the group of defensive backs were Washington’s Marcus Peters, Alabama’s Landon Collins and Michigan State’s Trae Waynes. But it was a different Collins who stole the show early in the morning.

LSU’s Jalen Collins is one of the biggest cornerbacks in the 2015 NFL Draft class at 6’1, 203 pounds, yet still managed to have one of the top times among the defensive backs. His 4.48 time topped most of the other participants in the drill, although it was Waynes who wound up setting the top time of 4.31 seconds. Mississippi State’s Justin Cox wasn’t far behind at 4.36 seconds, and Florida State’s Ronald Darby was right behind him with a time of 4.38 seconds. Peters managed to post a time of 4.53 seconds.

Jean Francois also reported interest from both the Seattle Seahawks and his former team, the 49ers. In fact, Jean Francois was in Seattle for a visit on Thursday, according to another tweet from Rapoport. Seattle has one of the best defenses in the league and is preparing for the departure of its own free agents. Washington has struggled big time in recent seasons, though, and Jean Francois will get every opportunity to start and make a difference.

Jean Francois played in all 16 games this past season, putting up 28 tackles, three sacks and a fumble recovery to go along with six passes defensed. The defensive line is one of Washington’s biggest needs this offseason, with Jason Hatcher struggling (after being a marquee free agent signing in 2014) and multiple injuries along the line, namely to Stephen Bowen and Barry Cofield.

“This is a victory for the rule of law, due process and fairness. Our collective bargaining agreement has rules for implementation of the personal conduct policy and when those rules are violated, our union always stands up to protect our players’ rights. This is yet another example why neutral arbitration is good for our players, good for the owners and good for our game.”

Cam Newton draws his 1st roughing the passer call since 2014

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has taken a lot of hits this season, and the refs finally called roughing the passer for one of them.

Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Stacy McGee initiated contact after the ball left Newton’s hand, then he drove the quarterback into the ground. It’s a clear roughing the passer penalty, though Newton usually doesn’t get the benefit of those calls.

This wasn’t just the first time officials have called roughing the passer in Newton’s favor this season.

Officials did call roughing the passer against the Broncos in Week 1 for a hit on Newton, but it was not enforced because of an offsetting penalty called on the Panthers.

The Broncos couldn’t overcome their own mistakes to get a win. Denver allowed a safety to Justin Houston, and immediately allowed an 86-yard return touchdown from Tyreek Hill on the ensuing kick.

Denver’s return specialist, Jordan Norwood, muffed two punts, and one of those was recovered by the Chiefs. Norwood’s teammate, Aqib Talib, wasn’t happy about the muffed punts.

The Chiefs tried to mount a comeback as time ticked away in regulation, scoring a touchdown that was initially not called a touchdown, but the ruling was changed upon review. That narrowed the Broncos’ lead to 24-22, and the two-point conversion was successful, tying the game at 24.

Denver and Kansas City traded field goals on their first possessions of overtime, but a miss from Denver later on gave the Chiefs a shot to win it with a field goal.

With the win, Kansas City improves to 8-3 and improves its standing in the AFC West. The Broncos fall to 7-4, placing them a full game behind the Chiefs and two games behind the division-leading Oakland Raiders. For the Chiefs, the Sunday Night Football win also means they improve to 11-18 in primetime games since 2004.

The NFL acknowledged that Campbell should have been penalized for roughing the passer, and Campbell was fined roughly $18,000 for the hit.
