AFC Notes: Browns, Raiders, Titans


Browns HC Hue Jackson downplayed the report that there’s a growing rift (NFLTR) between the team’s front office and the coaching staff.

“I know nothing about any of that stuff,” Jackson said, via “People can say what they’re going to say. Let’s be honest, that has been the [reported] flavor of this organization for years. That doesn’t exist in our building at all. I know those things are going to come. You guys are going to ask those questions. I know nothing about that at all.”


Raiders HC Jack Del Rio told reporters that QB Derek Carr is dealing with back spasms, but Carr seemingly rebutted Del Rio’s diagnosis after the game.

“I’m glad he knows,” Carr said, vis Scott Bair of “That’s awesome. That sounds good to me.

Carr is still hoping he’ll be able to suit up for Week 5’s game.

“I just wanted some pain to wear off and just go from there,” Carr said. “I came in there and had them work on it. I tried to throw, but it just wasn’t ready. Yet. That’s not to say it won’t be. It just wasn’t ready today. I tried to do anything I could to be out there, but I just couldn’t do it. . . .

“(I don’t feel) too good, but neither does anyone in the NFL. We’re going to do the treatment and all those kinds of things. Y’all know me. It’s going to take a lot to keep me off the field.


  • Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that if Titans QB Marcus Mariota misses time with the hamstring injury he sustained on Sunday, Tennessee should sign free agent QB Colin Kaepernick to a contract.
  • Kaepernick would offer a similar skill set to Mariota, given their mobility while current backup Matt Cassel is limited to being a pocket passer.
  • Florio adds that even Robert Griffin III would make more sense for the Titans than Cassel.
