Bears LB Lance Briggs might be out 'a few weeks' due to injury
Briggs' comment contradicts coach Marc Trestman's statement Tuesday that Briggs is considered a game-time decision for Thursday's contest against the Lions.
Briggs said he was injured Sunday while trying to jam Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans on a short passing route.
"I think I somehow got locked in on him," Briggs said. "I got twerked a little bit and pulled out. It kind of felt like I did the splits. When I fell and tried to get up, I knew something was wrong."
Colts WR Wayne: I didn't beg for streak-extending targets
Chuck Pagano called for those passes, which totaled two yards.
"I guarantee you nowhere in there did I say I wanted two more catches to extend the streak," Wayne said on his radio show. "I'm never going to beg for catches, especially when we're winning."
Wayne departed the locker room without answering questions from the media following the game, but cited home obligations for leaving quickly.
Megatron contends he's still the 'same guy' from record-breaking year
It's quite evident
Johnson said Tuesday he is still the "same guy" from 2012, when he totaled 1,964 receiving yards, which is an NFL record. Quarterback Matthew Stafford suggests Johnson's drop in production is because defenses are doing a better job "keying in" on the star receiver.
"He’s the best receiver in the league, and they know that," Stafford said, per The Detroit News. "It’s on me to just throw him better balls and make sure we’re on the same page."
Stafford added it's tough to tell if Johnson is still hobbled by the ankle injury.
"It was a long time that he was out," Stafford said. "Even when he was in early on in the season, there were a couple games he played where he wasn’t himself. It’s always a long process coming back."

Chargers going with rookie after losing three centers
Watt played guard his entire college career.
"It's definitely very surreal," Watt told the team's website. "I knew I would have the opportunity right away to learn center, but who would have thought we would be down this many people this quickly. I'm happy I've been preparing the way I have and I'm ready to make the most of it."
Watt said he's learned from all three starters before him -- Ohrnberger, Doug Legursky and Nick Hardwick -- and has built a good relationship with quarterback Philip Rivers. Watt has played in eight games this season, but mostly at guard.
'Crazy' how far Justin Forsett has come
Now he's leading the
"It's crazy, man," he told the Seattle Times. "You think about where I was this time last year, mostly doing a lot of scout-team work and coming in to play every once in a while. To just get the opportunity when I thought I would never get it again, it's a blessing."
Quarterback Joe Flacco said Forsett is "not letting the guy tackle him in the hole with his arms or anything like that. He's breaking those little things."
Forsett, who leads the league with 12 rushes of 20-plus yards, plays the Chargers in Week 13.
Cowboys WR Terrance Williams says he'll play Thursday
Williams will wear a splint and likely take a pain-killing injection before the Thanksgiving game, the report said. He was able to catch passes in practice Tuesday, though he told the paper his finger "hurts bad."
Accuracy is Colt McCoy's calling card
After leading that winning fourth-quarter drive, McCoy started Week 8 at Dallas and was just as good, hitting 25 of 30 throws for 299 yards with an interception and rushing for 16 yards. Washington won 20-17 in overtime. McCoy has completed 85.7 percent of his throws so far.
Now he faces a Colts defense holding quarterbacks to an 88.5 passer rating, 13th-lowest in the NFL.
