AFC Notes: Jets, Patriots, Ravens



  • According to Adam Schefter, the Jets rebuffed multiple trade attempts for DL Quinnen Williams, telling teams he had too much talent and played too important of a position to trade away. 
  • ESPN’s Rich Cimini says Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh has been a name that’s come up in each of the Jets’ past three coaching searches and is sure to come up again given his shaky status at Michigan right now. 
  • Jeremy Fowler of ESPN thinks that the Jets would likely move on from QB Sam Darnold if they were to draft QB Trevor Lawrence with the first overall pick in the 2021 draft. 
  • Darnold spoke to the media about whether or not he will play on Monday night: “It felt all right (in practice). Just taking it day by day. Yeah, you know, we’ll see. I think right now just taking it day by day is the best thing to do.”  (Rich Cimini)
  • Cimini notes that Darnold did not seem as optimistic as he did on Monday and thinks that his shoulder may not be recovering the way is hoping it will.
  • Another interesting note from Cimini is that with WR Jamison Crowder returning, the Jets will have their three starting receivers together for the first time.
  • According to Cimini, the team could also be without DL Quinnen Williams and WR Vyncint Smith, who may have reaggravated his core muscle injury.


  • ESPN’s Mike Reiss writes the Patriots will be in no rush to put RB Sony Michel back in over RB Damien Harris, who has played very well recently. 
  • Patriots WR N’Keal Harry missed his second consecutive game with a concussion Sunday and Reiss points out Harry has a history with concussions dating back to his time playing youth football. 
  • The Patriots ruled out CB Stephon Gilmore (knee), DT Lawrence Guy (elbow, shoulder, knee) and LB Ja’Whaun Bentley (groin) for Monday’s game against the Jets. 
  • Mike Reiss notes that TE Dalton Keene (knee) did not travel but his game status remains questionable.


  • Ravens WR Dez Bryant said of being back on the football field: “It’s surreal – just being back in the locker room, just being on the sideline, just being here with these guys, it’s exciting. Seeing the game up close versus just watching it on TV; I felt my competitive spirit come back alive. I’m just excited. I’m very grateful, I’m very thankful, and I’m just going to keep on working. I’m going to keep on grinding and just do whatever these guys need me to do to keep getting wins.” (Jamison Hensley)
  • Ravens DE Calais Campbell has a calf strain, but it doesn’t sound like anything major, according to John Harbaugh: “It’s not serious. We’ll see how long it is.” (Jamison Hensley)
