- Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the relationship between the 49ers and QB Colin Kaepernick “has been over for weeks.“
- According to La Canfora, the situation was done for after San Francisco elected to bench Kaepernick in favor of Blaine Gabbert.
- The team said the move was just to give Kaepernick some time take a breather.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted during an interview with 105.3 The Fan that he has “tried to get cute” with the quarterback position in the past.
“I’ve tried to get cute — and I don’t mind saying tried to be cute — at the quarterback spot. I tried to get us what I thought was the equivalent of a Romo with Quincy Carter in the third round,” Jones said, via Pro Football Talk. “We tried to get one that was drafted high, obviously in somebody’s eyes had high potential, in this case Mike Holmgren thought Weeden was certainly a first-round pick and he had a lot of credentials coming out of Oklahoma State.”
Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson isn’t overly concerned with his contract situation, even though it’s been a popular topic for a few years now. In the end, Wilkerson fully expects someone to pay him, even if it’s not the Jets.
“Hopefully, thank God, I don’t have any injuries or anything like that, but … somebody’ll pay me if the Jets don’t,” Wilkerson said, via the New York Post.
- According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, there’s no reason to believe Patriots LB Jamie Collins has MRSA infection.
- Howe points out that the Patriots haven’t shut down any portions of their facility to disinfect for MRSA over the past two weeks, which would be standard protocol for this type of situation.
- New England ruled out Collins for Week 11 with an illness, but they haven’t offered any details beyond that.
