ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen are reporting that the NFL Players Association sent a letter to the NFL on Friday, calling for the immediate reinstatement of RB Adrian Peterson based on the agreement that allowed Peterson to be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list.
The agreement explicitly states that Peterson would be removed from the list upon resolution of his legal matter, which happened last week.
However, the NFL appears to be dragging their feet. For the time being, the league has requested all evidence from his court case to have reviewed by independent experts.
- Albert Breer reports that the Bills are “optimistic” both WR Sammy Watkins and RB Fred Jackson will be able to play against the Chiefs.
- RB Lamar Miller (questionable, shoulder) is expected to play against the Lions, but he could end up being limited. (Adam Beasley)
- Veteran G Daryn Colledge (back) has been downgraded to out for Week 10.
- Ian Rapoport reports that even with a bye coming up for the Jets, it’s still unlikely that they’ll make a coaching change, barring a string of “embarrassing losses.“
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants’ “dream scenario” is for a “clean and orderly succession of power” at some point in the future regarding the head coach position.
“They envision a day when Tom Coughlin decides, on his own, to retire,” writes Vacchiano. “Then, if all has gone well, maybe offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo takes over the reins.“
Vacchiano admits there is no guarantee that this what will end up happening, but sources said that the team views McAdoo as a future head coach.
