The latest from week 10 of the NFL (all times EST):
Washington’s defense, Chase Young, is limping off the field with help after injuring his right knee in the second quarter against Tampa Bay.
The team said Young would not return to the game.
The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year curled up on the ground with what appeared to be a non-contact injury after trying to get past left tackle Donovan Smith on a passing rush.
Young pulled off and threw off his helmet while down on the field before being checked by team coaches.
A cart was driven out onto the grass, but Young did not get up on it. Instead, he signaled to right guard Brandon Scherff to give him a hand to help him get up.
A crawling Young then walked towards the locker room and draped his arms on two people’s shoulders while walking with a hitch.
Young has 1 1/2 sacks this season. He had 7 1/2 last season.
Washington’s second defensive starter, Montez Sweat, went on injured reserve this week with a broken jaw.
Tom Terrific has been anything but hitherto against Washington as Tampa Bay comes out of its farewell week.
Tom Brady is already up for two interceptions on Sunday. This is only the third time in his career he has had so many in the first quarter of a match, including the playoffs.
He came into this match as he was only picked from a total of five times throughout the season.
Buc’s QB was intercepted twice in a defeat to New Orleans in the last game of the Super Bowl champions two weeks ago, and he has three picks over seven passes.
On Sunday, cornerback William Jackson III grabbed a pass after leaving Tampa Bay rookie receiver Jaelon Darden. That put Washington up on the Tampa Bay 28th and led to a field goal by new kicker Joey Slye.
Brady’s second interception was pulled in by Bobby McCain when a pass went straight to him. It seemed that Brady and his closest recipient, Mike Evans, were not on the same page in the play.
That was followed by a 10-play, 46-yard drive that ended with Taylor Heinicke’s 20-yard TD pass to DeAndre Carter to put Washington ahead 13-0 early in the second quarter.
Mason Rudolph was not long in becoming familiar with his starting point for Pittsburgh after Ben Roethlisberger was placed on the COVID-19 list.
Rudolph led the Steelers crisp down the field on their opening drive to Detroit without a win. He ended it with a 9-yard touchdown pass to James Washington, who starred alongside Rudolph of Oklahoma State before being drafted by Pittsburgh.
Rudolph did not know he was starting until less than 24 hours before kickoff when Roethlisberger went on the COVID-19 list. Rudolph is 5-4 starting with Pittsburgh.
The Indianapolis Colts have gotten off to a strong start thanks to their special team.
Zaire Franklin blocked Jacksonville’s punt in the first quarter and the ball was picked up by EJ Speed on the 12-yard line and drove in for a touchdown.
Jonathan Taylor, who is approaching the NFL lead with Tennessee star Derrick Henry on the sidelines, followed with a goal on the next drive to put the Colts ahead 17-0.
The Tennessee Titans will be without outside linebacker Bud Dupree for the rest of the game against the New Orleans Saints.
Dupree went into the locker room after the Titans’ initial defensive series. The Titans announced that he would miss the rest of the game with a stomach problem.
The linebacker was Tennessee’s biggest free agent in March. Dupree has been limited to six games before recovering on Sunday from the ACL he tore in December last year while with Pittsburgh. He’s got one guy so far this season.
Tennessee already has two sacks against Trevor Siemian in the first quarter of a goalless game.
Cornerback Richard Sherman is a late scratch for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against Washington. He injured his calf while warming up before the match.
This is the third game in a row that Sherman misses, who was previously out of the game with a bad butt.
He last played in a win over Philadelphia on October 14th.
Reigning Super Bowl champion Bucs is 6-2 heading into the game in Washington, which is 2-6. Tampa Bay beat Washington in the playoffs last season.
Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is set to face the team that fired him after five games last year when Atlanta visited the Cowboys.
Quinn trains before the game by running down the stairs at the bottom level of the AT&T Stadium. While on the field after his training, Quinn stopped several times to chat with members of the Falcons’ staff. He also visited with owner Arthur Blank and quarterback Matt Ryan.
Atlanta reached the Super Bowl during the 2016 season under Quinn. The Falcons lost infamous New England 34-28 in overtime after leading 28-3 in the third quarter in Houston.
Quinn was in his sixth season with the Falcons last year when he was fired after a 0-5 start. Atlanta became the first team to lose games in a row after leading by at least 15 points in the fourth quarter. One of those losses was with the Cowboys. Dallas won 40-39 on a field goal in the final game after regaining an onside kick that the Falcons could easily have had, but let it roll past the 10-yard mark.
The Pittsburgh Steelers host the undefeated Detroit Lions without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
The 39-year-old was put on the COVID-19 reserve list Saturday night. Mason Rudolph is set to start for a Steelers team that has won four games in a row.
The rest of the series of kickoffs in the early afternoon include Cleveland in New England, Jacksonville in Indianapolis, Tampa Bay in Washington, Buffalo at the New York Jets, Atlanta in Dallas and New Orleans in Tennessee.
The Titans placed wide receiver Julio Jones on injured reserve with a hamstring injury on Saturday, further exhausting an offensive that already missed star, runback Derrick Henry.
Other prominent players who have been declared inactive this afternoon include Brown running back Nick Chubb (COVID-19), Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle), Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski (ribs), Saints running back Alvin Kamara (knees), Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool (toe), Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith (ankle), Colts cornerback Xavier Rhodes (calf), Patriots tight end Jonnu Smith (shoulder) and Patriots running back Damien Harris (concussion).
The Denver Broncos signed quarterback Danny Etling to their training team in case the COVID-19 virus further affects their QBs.
Backup Drew Lock has been on the reserve / COVID-19 list since he got the virus last weekend.
As close contacts to Lock, starter Teddy Bridgwater and third-grader Brett Rypien have taken daily coronavirus tests. If they pass their tests again today, they will be active for the Broncos’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles this afternoon.
If not, Etling would serve as an acute quarterback. He is a seventh-round pick from LSU in 2018 who has spent time on the training teams of the Patriots and Falcons.
The Broncos have been dealing with COVID-19 issues for nearly three weeks with six players and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur testing positive.
On Saturday, the Broncos placed outside linebacker Pita Taumoepenu on the Practice Squad / COVID-19 list. – Arnie Stapleton reports from Denver.
11 in the morning
The Buffalo Bills placed defensive tackle Star Lotulelei on the reserve / COVID-19 list a few hours before the kickoff of the team’s game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.
Defensive tackle Brandin Bryant was elevated from the training team to take over Lotulelei’s place for the match.
Lotulelei has two sacks and 14 tackles in seven games, all starting, this season for the Bills.
The 31-year-old Lotulelei resigned last season due to concerns about the pandemic. He was placed in COVID-19 protocols during training camp after being considered a close contact, and was activated on 27 August.
Bryant, who joined Buffalo’s training team last year, has not played in a regular NFL game since 2019 with Cleveland. He was signed by Seattle as an expired free agent from Florida Atlantic in 2016, and he has also spent time with the Jets and Miami Dolphins as well as Winnipeg and Montreal in the Canadian Football League. – Dennis Waszak Jr. reports from East Rutherford, New Jersey.
