Jaguars place TE Niles Paul on IR

The Jaguars are placing tight end Niles Paul on injured reserve with a sprained MCL, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. The injury is not a season-ender, but he will have to miss at least eight weeks while on IR, per league rules. The Jaguars have now lost their two best pass-catching tight ends to injury this season. Just one week ago, the club was forced to place Austin Seferian-Jenkins on IR. The silver lining here is that ASJ is also eligible to return, and can suit up one week before...

'Sacksonville' Jaguars lose their swagger after drubbing in Dallas

A month ago, following a victory over the New England Patriots to mark a 2-0 start, the Jacksonville Jaguars seemed to announce their staying power atop the AFC. Sure, 2017 brought them to the doorstep of the Super Bowl, but sometimes such runs can be flukes. Rebounding and taking one from the Pats, even in September, suggested a sustained fortitude. Plus, Blake Bortles throwing four touchdowns is shocking enough to seem important, even if it’s just one regular-season game. And yet here we...

Report: Raiders seeking first-round pick for Amari Cooper

The Oakland Raiders are thinking about trading wide receiver Amari Cooper, according to a report, but the asking price is very high. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported on NFL Network Monday that the Raiders have had some discussions about trading Cooper, but the asking price of a first-round pick may make a deal impossible. It does not sound like any of the Raiders’ discussions have gotten far, nor does it appear they’re giving much thought to lowering the asking price, which may mean...

Le’Veon Bell is not at the Steelers facility Monday as he continues his holdout, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com (Twitter link). Bell had been expected to report to the Steelers during the club’s Week 7 bye, and there is still a possibility he could do so.

Dolphins consider Ryan Tannehill day-to-day

The Miami Dolphins were without quarterback Ryan Tannehill on Sunday, but coach Adam Gase is hoping that his absence proves brief. Gase said Monday that, for now, Tannehill is considered day-to-day and will likely return in 2018, though the team is waiting to see him throw before making any major announcements. Tannehill has a shoulder injury, and the Dolphins haven’t really gone into much detail about it. Their optimism about an impending return seems guarded, as reports indicated he was...

Khalil Mack played through ankle injury against Dolphins

Some wondered if the South Florida heat may have been the reason Khalil Mack had his quietest game of the season against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, but apparently the star pass-rusher was playing through significant pain. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Mack injured his ankle during the Chicago Bears’ 31-28 overtime loss. Mack, who rarely comes off the field, played on only 62 of 78 defensive snaps. He failed to record a sack for the first time this season and had just two...
