Belichick deflects questions about Patriots CB Darrelle Revis
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Bill Belichick declined to elaborate Friday on any issues between him and Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis, who was sent home Tuesday after arriving late for a team meeting.

"Anything between me and the players is between myself and the players," he told Boston.com.

Pressed about the incident and how it could impact the status of the veteran for the Week 8 game against visiting Chicago, Belichick merely talked about the difficulty of the matchup.


Lions stud WR Calvin Johnson questionable for Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:48 am ET) Lions superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson has been deemed questionable for the Sunday game against Atlanta in London.

Johnson practiced on a limited basis the past three days after missing the last two games with an ankle injury. He has struggled with the issue most of the year. Johnson caught just three passes for 19 yards in the previous two games combined and will likely be limited even if he does play in Week 8.


Three Lions tight ends appear doomed to inactivity Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:43 am ET) The Lions are nearly certain to be sans three tight ends for their Sunday game against Atlanta. Both Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) have been ruled out while starter Brandon Pettigrew (foot) has been designated as doubtful.

Their absences could launch Jordan Thompson into the starting role. He was recently signed off the practice squad. Fullback Jed Collins could also earn some reps at tight end.


Lions RB Reggie Bush deemed doubtful for battle in Britain
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:36 am ET) Despite his claims to the contrary, Lions running back Reggie Bush appears destined to miss the Week 8 game against Atlanta. He has been deemed doubtful for the clash in London.

Bush has been sidelined from practice since Thursday with an ankle injury.


Titans new QB Mettenberger hardly lacking confidence
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:31 am ET) New Titans starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger boasts confidence bordering on cockiness. And it has crossed that border since Thursday, when he addressed the media after the announcement.

"I absolutely believe this is my team now," he said via The Tennessean. "This is what you dream of. I have been preparing and anticipating this happening since the day I got drafted. That was my mindset since Day 1, to be the starter."

Titans left tackle, fellow rookie and close friend Taylor Lewan likes that mindset.

"I think he has one of those, 'I don't care' attitudes," Lewan said. 'I'm going to throw darts the whole time.' And that's awesome. That's how a quarterback should be. He'll sit in the pocket, take a hit, and he'll get right back up and get in the guy's face, and I love it."

Mettenberger opened some eyes with a strong preseason in which he passed for 659 yards and two touchdowns while compiling a 97.6 passer rating.


Lions RB Bush a no-go Friday, but insists he'll play Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:18 am ET) Despite his absence from his second straight practice Friday, Lions running back Reggie Bush reiterated his intention of playing Sunday against Atlanta.

Bush, who has been dealing with an ankle problem, has lost opportunities in recent weeks with just 10 carries in the last two games combined. He has averaged a mere 2.3 YPC during that time.


Report: DT Nick Fairley seeking long-term deal from Lions
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:10 am ET) The Lions took a chance when they declined to exercise their option on defensive tackle Nick Fairley in 2015. Now he wants them to take another chance, this time in his favor. He wants them to sign him to a long-term contract, per MLive.com.

Fairley shed 20 poinds in the offseason and is playing well. Pro Football Focus ranks him the ninth-best defensive tackle in the NFL, just two spots behind premier tackle and teammate Ndamukong Suh. Fairley is in the final year of his contract and has expressed his desire to remain in Detroit.

"Of course I would love to come back," he said.

One reason the Lions refused to pick up his option was conditioning. Fairley fattened up to more than 320 pounds last season and was criticized for a perceived lack of effort in practice.


Broncos K Brandon McManus hooks lone FG attempt wide left
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:25 am ET) Broncos kicker Brandon McManus hooked his only attempt -- a 53-yard shot -- wide left in a Week 8 victory over the Chargers.

McManus missed his kick in the fourth quarter while trying to extend the lead for the Broncos. He finished 0 for 1 in field goal attempt, adding five extra points in a 35-21 victory. He has converted only 6 of 8 field goal attempts this season.


Chargers DB Jahleel Addae dealing with stinger
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:25 am ET) Chargers defensive back Jahleel Addae is dealing with a stinger, according to 1090 Sports Radio.

Addae took a couple big hits during the game, and came up wobbling. He was given a concussion test on the sideline, which he reportedly passed during the game. Addae recorded four tackles.


Chargers CB Jason Verrett in a sling Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:21 am ET) Chargers corner Jason Verrett had his arm in a sling following Thursday's game against the Broncos. 

Verrett entered the contest questionable due to a shoulder injury, and had to leave in the middle of the game. He made one tackle, and was unable to return after being ruled questionable again. Following the game, Verrett had his left shoulder in a sling.
