NFL Notes: Chiefs, Cowboys, Lions, Patriots, & Seahawks



  • Todd Archer of ESPN still believes that QB Tony Romo will eventually start and play a big part for the Cowboys this season.
  • Archer mentions that G Ronald Leary is actually an underappreciated part of the Cowboys’ offensive line and is a better overall player than La’el Collins. Although, Archer says that Collins makes more “wow” plays that people will notice in space.
  • Next year, it’s likely Dallas will have to allow Leary to move on as an unrestricted free agent, which will allow them to move Collins back into starting lineup.


  • Lions announced that OT Riley Reiff has been downgraded to out for Week 9 due to illness.


  • Ben Volin of the Boston Globe writes the Patriots may have traded LB Jamie Collins to the Browns because there could have been a discontent between him and New England’s hard-style of business.
  • Volin mentions that Patriots HC Bill Belichick insists that players “do their work” and be team players, while Collins could have been focused on his own well-being.
  • An AFC front office executive told Volin that he could not tell if Collins was “freelancing” on defense while with the Patriots.


  • Seahawks have ruled out the following players from Week 9: S Kam Chancellor (groin), RB Thomas Rawls (fibula), TE Luke Willson (knee), DE Michael Bennett (knee), CB DeAndre Elliott (hamstring)
  • Seahawks listed LT Bradley Sowell as questionable with a knee injury.
