Jets running back Zac Stacy scores a touchdown in Week 4
New York Jets running back Zac Stacy carried the ball five times for 7 yards scored and a touchdown while catching two passes for an additional 18 yards Sunday against the Miami Dolphins .
Stacy came into the game after Bilal Powell left the game with a groin injury. Even though Chris Ivory was shredding the Dolphins defense on the ground, Stacy struggled to gain yardage on his rushing attempts, but he was able to vulture a short touchdown run from Ivory.
Jets RB Bilal Powell exits game Week 4 due to groin injury
New York Jets running back Bilal Powell caught one pass for 12 yards Sunday against the Miami Dolphins before leaving the game with a groin injury.
Powell left the game early and didn't return. Before leaving the contest, he wasn't getting nearly as much work as he had early in the season when he was almost sharing touches equally with Chris Ivory . He didn't have a single carry, and his reception was on the only target he saw.
Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall posts 128 yards Sunday
New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall caught seven passes for 128 yards on a team-high 11 targets Sunday against the Miami Dolphins .
Marshall Thundering Herd beat Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes deep down the left sideline for a 58-yard gain. He had a pass target in the end zone, but the play was broken up, keeping him from a monster day.
Playing with a big lead in the second half, the Jets were able to run the ball heavily and didn't need to lean on Marshall.
Eagles CB Byron Maxwell leaves game due to quad injury
Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell (quad) is questionable to return Sunday against the Washington Redskins .
The Eagles have been struggling mightily in the secondary, and the defense is likely to struggle badly if he can't return. EJ Biggers should take over for him in the lineup.
Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks questionable to return in Week 4
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) is questionable to return Sunday against the Washington Redskins .
Kendricks came into this game with a hamstring injury, so he likely re-aggravated the injury. He's a big part of the team's rushing defense, so this injury potentially makes the sledding a bit easier for Alfred Morris and Matt Jones . He's expected to be replaced by Jordan Hicks at right inside linebacker.
Redskins WR DeSean Jackson officially a no-go for Sunday
What was expected is official - a hamstring injury will keep Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson inactive for the Sunday game against Philadelphia.
Jackson appears to be closing in on a return, but certainly no exact timetable has been established. He has not played since his early knockout in Week 1.
Falcons LB Brooks Reed set to play against former teammates
Atlanta Falcons linebacker Brooks Reed (groin) is starting Sunday against Houston.
In his debut with Atlanta, he will line up versus his former team at strong-side linebacker, where he'll act as more of a pass rusher than a tackle machine.
Bucs DT Gerald McCoy overcomes shoulder injury to play Week 4
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Carolina Panthers . He was listed as questionable.
Having McCoy is a big boost to the Bucs' rushing defense, as they try to contain Jonathan Stewart (tibia) and Cam Newton .
Texans RB Alfred Blue expected to work despite return of Foster
Houston Texans running back Alfred Blue could still receive some carries in Week 4 despite the return of featured back Arian Foster, the Houston Chronicle has speculated.
Blue rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries last Sunday against the Buccaneers. Once Foster's health is fully established, we'd expect the Texans to once again lean on him heavily.
Raiders LB Khalil Mack fine for battle against Bears
Oakland Raiders standout linebacker Khalil Mack (hip) is active for the Week 4 battle with the Bears.
Mack is coming off a big two-sack performance last week against Cleveland and will be looking to add to that total in this game.
