NFL Notes: Bears, Colts, Eagles, & Seahawks



Bears S Antrel Rolle told reporters that he, thankfully, did not suffer a broken ankle during today’s game.

Thank God nothing is broken,” Rolle said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “It could have been a lot worse than what it really is. The X-rays came back negative. … I’m going to keep grinding and just keep on pushing. I plan on being back in no time.


  • Joel Corry of CBS Sports mentions that the Colts may end up paying veteran WR Andre Johnson just $10 million for the 2015 season, due to how poorly things are going for him this year.
  • Corry notes that Johnson has a $2.5 million roster bonus due on the fifth day of the 2016 league year that is already fully guaranteed, so that won’t be a consideration.


Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he anticipated his role being different this year after leaving the Cowboys, but he doesn’t think he’s been receiving enough carries.

“Do I think I’m touching the ball? Umm…No I’m not,” Murray said, via Eliot Shorr-Parks of “I don’t think I am.”


  • The Seahawks officially ruled out RB Marshawn Lynch and DT Brandon Mebane for Monday Night’s game.
  • Ed Werder reports that lynch tried to lobby HC Pete Carroll to allow him to play in the game, but Carroll elected to not take any chances with his hamstring injury.
