However, Klis adds that there has been no negotiating between these two players and the Broncos since August.


  • HC Rex Ryan mentioned after the game that he has “no idea” who will be the team’s starter in Week 9. (Judy Battista)
  • QB Michael Vick said: “I would love to start. I don’t mind that at all.” (Kimberly Jones)
  • QB Geno Smith had X-rays taken for an injury after Sunday’s game. (Rich Cimini)
  • A Jets’ spokesman said that Geno Smith has shoulder injury. (Kimberly Martin)


ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky reports that Titans WR Nate Washington suffered a sprained AC joint in his shoulder during Sunday’s loss to the Texans.

Washington’s name came up as a potential trade option for Tennessee, but this would likely remove him from any discussions if he were to miss time.


  • WR Cordarrelle Patterson had a boot on his left foot following Sunday’s game. He apparently got injured on a kick return, but was able to finish the game with it. (Ben Goessling)
