- ESPN’s Bob Holtzman report that Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) will play Week 16’s game against the Texans barring “an unexpected setback.“
Browns HC Hue Jackson mentioned that the team is “not where they need to be” at the quarterback position and all options will be considered.
“Everything’s going to be on the table,” Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I’m going to look at everything. I just have to. I owe these guys the best opportunity to win in the locker room. With the effort they’re giving me, I have to give back to them as a leader. I have to make sure I’m putting the right people out there for them.”
“Everybody. Everybody is in play. Absolutely.”
Falcons HC Dan Quinn mentioned that he’s hoping to have WR Julio Jones back for Week 16’s game.
“I’m hopeful that he’s back,” Quinn said, via ESPN.com. “So, I think that he will (return). We’re going to take it all the way through, practice Tuesday and Wednesday, and then we’ll have a good shot. But I am hopeful for that.
“I can’t say it’s for sure until he can explode like he can, but I think he’s a heck of a lot closer than he has been over the last two weeks.”
- Adam Caplan reports that Falcons rookie TE Austin Hooper is undergoing an MRI tomorrow for his injured knee.
- Meanwhile, Vaughn McClure reported that Hooper was seen sporting crutches and had a big brace on his left knee.
Texans HC Bill O’Brien told reporters after Sunday’s game that they won’t make a decision regarding their starting quarterback position based on Brock Osweiler’s salary.
“We don’t make decisions on how much a guy gets paid,” O’Brien said, via ESPN.com. “We make decisions on what’s the best way to win a game. That was the decision we made today and I thought today, it worked out OK.”
This is obviously good news for Tom Savage and his chances of taking over as the team’s starting quarterback.
