NFL Notes: Bengals, Eagles, Panthers, & Rams
- Ian Rapoport reports that Bengals QB A.J. McCarron suffered a sprained wrist during Monday night’s loss to the Broncos.
- According to Rapoport, McCarron does not have a fracture and has a chance to play in Week 17’s game.
- However, sources have told Rapoport that McCarron’s wrist sprain is “significant.”
- Even so, McCarron is reportedly intent on playing, consider that this is to his non-throwing hand.
- Eagles OC Pat Shurmur said he expects them to re-sign QB Sam Bradford and add that he views Bradford as a franchise quarterback. (John Clark)
- Shurmur told reporters that they still think RB DeMarco Murray is a good fit for their system: “DeMarco ran out of the shotgun in college, he is an instinctual RB, I think there are a lot of things that show he fits our scheme.” (Matt Lombardo)
- ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that the Panthers are hopeful RB Jonathan Stewart can return to practice on Wednesday and play in Week 17’s game.
- According to Werder, Stewart has ran well on treadmill.
- Stewart was seen without a boot on his injured left foot Tuesday, so there are some encouraging signs for him moving forward.
- The St. Louis Task Force announced that they’ve delivered a stadium proposal to the NFL and team owners regarding the stadium project to keep the Rams.
- Dave Peacock said that the formal proposal is for a $1.1 billion project and includes over $400 million in public financing and support.
- The proposal calls for the Rams to contribute $250 million to the project with the NFL investing $300 million.
- The Rams are asked to sign a 30-year lease and “enforceable non-relocation agreement“.
- The RSA would own the stadium and land with the Rams paying $1.5 million in rent per year.
