AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots




  • Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Dolphins WR Kenny Stills suffered a groin strain toward the end of Sunday’s game and is undergoing an MRI on Monday.
  • As of now, Rapoport says there’s no word yet regarding Stills’ availability, but he admits this would be an “incredibly fast turnaround” for him to be able to play on Thursday.
  • Interestingly enough, this should open the door for WR DeVante Parker to have a large role after being inactive the past few weeks.
  • According to Dolphins HC Adam Gase, there’s a “high possibility” of WR Albert Wilson being placed on injured reserve. (Joe Schad)
  • Gase mentioned that he isn’t bothered by the comments from Parker’s agent criticizing him and he expects Parker to play moving forward. (Armando Salguero)
  • To no surprise, Gase confirmed that Brock Osweiler will start Thursday’s game against the Texans.
  • Gase ruled out WR¬†Kenny Stills for Thursday’s game. (Joe Schad)


  • Rich Cimini hears that the Jets had some interest in WR Amari Cooper, who was traded to the Cowboys on Monday.
  • However, Cimini adds that he isn’t sure what, if anything, they offered the Raiders in return for Cooper.
  • Jets signed WR J.J. Jones and C Jon Toth to their practice squad. (NFLTR)


  • Michael Giardi reports that Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has been suffering from painful back spasms.
  • According to Giardi, the Patriots spent a “considerable amount of time” focused on alleviating those issues leading up to Saturday. However, a team source believes Gronkowski’s back spasms are a short-term issue and it’s possible he could play on Monday.
