  • Ravens OLB Tyus Bowser is dealing with a groin injury, which has sidelined him for an extended period. (Jamison Hensley)
  • Ravens HC John Harbaugh added that Bowser needs to return soon because the competition with Kamalei Correa and Tim Williams is heating up.


The NFL issued a statement last week regarding the “defective” ball that was returned to Wilson for review.

Steelers QB Mason Rudolph actually used the ball during the game and explained that it was a “freaky deal.

“I did,” Rudolph said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I got the snap and the thing was flat to where it would not be an advantage. That was the weirdest thing. They took it out. It was kind of a freaky deal. … It was one of those balls that was in your grandfather’s garage for a few years. It was pretty flat. It was a bad deal.”

  • Steelers waived OL Kyle Meadows with an injury designation.
