NFL Notes: Cowboys, Patriots, Titans
- According to Todd Archer of ESPN, the NFL reiterated that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott‘s possible six-game suspension would carry over into the playoffs.
- Archer mentions Cowboys DE Randy Gregory‘s suspension last season as an example of a player being suspended for postseason play.
- Mike Reiss of ESPN, citing a source, reports that Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell is going “week by week” with his knee injury, but will not come off of the team’s injured reserve list this week.
- Regarding Patriots WR Chris Hogan‘s shoulder injury, Reiss writes that he is expected to make a “full recovery” this season, but it still “might take some time.” Reiss expects the team to be cautious with Hogan and sit him until he is completely recovered.
- With Hogan out, Reiss believes recently acquired WR Phillip Dorsett will get more playing time “initially” through the second-half of the season.
- Titans HC Mike Mularkey said he can’t say that first-round WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is prepared to play over 60 snaps, but the team will get a “good measure” of how much he can handle during Sunday’s game: “Is he ready to play 60 snaps? I can’t say that he is that. But he’ll get enough to get a good measure of where he is at right now.”
- Cameron Wolfe would not be surprised to see Titans TE Delanie Walker, who is listed as questionable with an ankle injury, play in Week 9.
