Texans “ready” to stay with Deshaun Watson
One of the strongest reports in recent weeks has been a possible move by QB Deshaun Watson, who no longer wants to play for the Texans. However, via Adam Schefter from ESPN, Houston is prepared to stay with Watson once the deadline to carry out trades this 2021 concludes on Tuesday, November 2 at 3:00 p.m. Central Mexico.
Schefter’s report indicates that multiple people within the Texans want to turn the page and get rid of Watson as soon as possible. In addition, he adds that team owner Cal McNair would like the organization to switch Watson before the deadline, however it is a decision he leaves entirely in the hands of GM Nick Caserio.
However, to date there is nothing concrete. Houston and Miami have had discussions about a possible trade throughout various points of the season, but according to the report, the Dolphins prefer that the legal problems of Watson, who faces up to 22 lawsuits for alleged sexual assault and misconduct, be resolved. before making a decision about a trade.
Plus, the Panthers are another team in the mix, interested in acquiring Watson. Even this weekend there was talk of an exchange where RB Christian McCaffrey was included, however multiple sources for ESPN, reported that Carolina’s HC Matt Rhule and GM Scott Fitterer called McCaffrey on Friday night to disprove any rumor, commenting that they never discussed or considered sending him to Houston in exchange for Watson.
So with less than 48 hours on the clock for the trade deadline to expire, there’s a lot going on around Watson, but really nothing in particular, and there’s a very big chance the Texans will have to keep him on the team for the rest. of the year, and thus, postpone his situation until the NFL Season 2022. In which team will we see Watson starting next Tuesday?

Calvin Ridley: “I need to get away from football right now”
Terrible news for the Falcons, who not only lost this Sunday to the Panthers, but will also have their best receiver out for an indefinite period. WR Calvin Ridley, who was absent during the match against Carolina yesterday, published a message through Twitter explaining the personal situation he is going through:
“These last few weeks have been very challenging and as much as I would like to be on the field competing with my teammates, I need to get away from football right now and focus on my mental well-being,” Ridley said. “This will help me to be the best version of myself now and in the future. I want to thank my teammates, the entire Atlanta Falcons organization, our great fans, my friends and my family for all their support during this time. “
Ridley, who came to the Falcons as a first-round pick in 2018, had previously missed the Week 5 game against the Jets in London for personal reasons; He returned for the game against the Dolphins in Week 7 after the team’s break, but has finally decided to take an indefinite absence in pursuit of his mental well-being.
In three seasons and counting, the Alabama graduate has a total of 248 receptions for 3,342 yards and 28 TDs. It was expected that after losing in the last offseason to WR Julio Jones, this year Ridley would become the great figure of the Atlanta offense, however, now his future in the Falcons and the NFL hangs in the balance. What do you think of Ridley’s decision?

Chris Carson may not return to the field this 2021
Seattle’s running game is in trouble. Two weeks ago RB Chris Carson was placed on the Injured Reserve with a neck injury, however, at this point, the Seahawks are still unclear if Carson will be able to return to the field in 2021:
“He must have a twist to show us that he feels better and well enough to play,” said HC Pete Carroll last Friday, via Curtis Crabtree. by Sports Radio KJR and PFT. “He still hasn’t been able to go out to practice. Very soon, you are going to say, “Is he going to come back?” And I’m not ready to decide yet. But seriously, I keep my fingers crossed that he can come back and play. “
This 2021 Carson played the first four games of the season and ran for 232 total yards and 3 TDs on 54 carries, and having been placed in IR on October 15, this week he is eligible to return to team training, without However, according to Carroll, that won’t happen: “He’s not ready to play football yet. There are no updates on his return that we can predict at this time. So we have to wait ”.
Carson, who graduated from Oklahoma State and came to Seattle in 2017, to date has 769 carries for 3,502 total yards and 24 TDs, so his loss has been a brutal loss in Seattle, which this year they have had to make up for with running backs Alex Collins, Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas. Will we see Carson on the field once again in 2021?

Tyrann Mathieu lashes out at Chiefs fans
In more NFL news, this 2021 the Chiefs no longer look as powerful as in recent seasons, and much of it is thanks to their defense, which at this point in the season can be classified as a disaster, and now, It could be worse. S Tyrann Mathieu, and LB Anthony Hitchens, through their social networks, attacked the team’s fans:
“This could be one of the most toxic fan bases in all of sports,” Mathieu wrote on his verified Instagram account. The comment is because Mathieu agreed with Hitchens, who had previously posted a comment defending himself after a Chiefs fan account listed the eighth-year linebacker’s contract as one of the three worst moves by the Kansas City general manager. , Brett Veach:
“All we did was go to 3 AFC Championship games, 2 Super Bowls and 1 SB win in my first 3 years here thus far,” Hitchens wrote. “You fans will never be satisfied, it’s sad!”
However, Mathieu and Hitchens argued with more Chiefs fans in other Instagram comments. When a fan suggested to Mathieu that he will be on another team next year, the safety responded: “Someone is going to pay me. I’m too smart and I’m too good! ” When another wrote, “They pay you millions of dollars to play,” Mathieu replied, “Then you should have been a football player.”
Thus, Hitchens, and especially Mathieu, seem to have had slight altercations in their social networks against their own fans. The important thing will be to show their worth as players on the field from here to the future and not by fighting against the fans that attend Arrowhead Stadium every week expecting a victory for their team. What do you think about Hitchens and Mathieu’s comments?

Dak, Jameis, and the most relevant injuries of Week 8
In the absence of the MNF, Week 8 of the 2021 NFL Season has almost come to an end. We had a Sunday full of surprises: the Jets beat the Bengals, the Saints beat the Buccaneers. the Patriots to the Chargers, and more. However, like every weekend, there were injuries everywhere and in this space we review the most important casualties.
- QB Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints. Terrible news for those led by Sean Payton. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL MediaWinston suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury, with possible medial collateral ligament damage, which would leave him out for the remainder of the year. The quarterback injured his knee in the first half of yesterday’s game against Tampa Bay and was unable to return to the game.
- QB Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys. Prescott was previously discussed in questionable status as a result of a calf strain suffered in Week 6 against the Patriots. Finally, for Week 8 he was declared inactive, and although it is expected that it was more for prevention than for the seriousness of the injury itself, we must wait for future reports on his status for next Sunday against Denver.
- TE Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gronkowski’s return to action was short-lived. He had previously missed all four Tampa Bay games due to broken ribs, and yesterday against the Saints, he lasted only two series before being ruled out of the game due to back spasms. He was only wanted once by Tom Brady, but he left with no yards or catches.
- Other notable casualties: RB James robinson (heel), Jacksonville Jaguars; QB Sam darnold (shock), Carolina Panthers; RB Damien Williams (knee), Chicago Bears; S Khari willis (calf), Indianapolis Colts; WR Tutu Atwell (shoulder), Los Angeles Rams; OG George Fant (ankle), New York Jets; K Chris Boswell (shock), Pittsburgh Steelers.
