NFL Notes: Bears, Buccaneers, Giants, Jets & Lions



  • Jeremy Fowler reports that Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) “needs another week” before he’ll be able to return. Fowler adds that barring “one impressive injury report success story”, Martin is out for┬áMonday’s game.



  • Despite his struggles, Rich Cimini doesn’t see the Jets benching QB Ryan Fitzpatrick this weekend unless the game is out of hand.
  • Cimini says that there is some frustration in the organization because of the alarming number of turnovers Fitzpatrick has had this year, but Cimini doesn’t get the sense that they have much confidence in Geno Smith right now.
  • If the season ends up getting away from the Jets, Cimini could see them turning to one of their younger quarterbacks like Bryce Petty.
