NFL News – Wednesday, November 17, 2021

In this Wednesday’s NFL news: Joey Bosa, Jerry Tillery, placed in the COVID-19 Stockpile; Jared Goff, Elijah Mitchell, in doubt for Week 11; and more. Don’t miss the NFL news.

Joey Bosa, Jerry Tillery, placed in the COVID-19 Reserve

Week 11 Sunday Night Football between Pittsburgh and Los Angeles could be played without several of the star players from both teams. This Tuesday, via Jeff Miller from Los Angeles Times, it was reported that the Chargers placed LB Joey Bosa and DT Jerry Tillery in the COVID-19 Reserve.

The initial report adds that Tillery is vaccinated and Bosa is not, but since the Chargers have not officially ruled out their edge rusher by Sunday, it is expected that Bosa did not contract COVID, but was listed as a close contact of Tillery, who gave positive for the virus. However, we still have to wait for future confirmations from Los Angeles.

Unvaccinated players who are considered close contact must be quarantined for just five days, so Bosa could still play the Steelers on Sunday. For their part, vaccinated players who test positive and are asymptomatic can return to the field after two consecutive negative tests taken at least 24 hours apart. But if they do register symptoms, they must test negative twice at least 24 hours apart and be asymptomatic for 48 hours, so there would still be a chance to see Tillery in the field this weekend as well.

Also, the Steelers are not far behind on the issue. Looking ahead to Sunday’s meeting, the participation of QB Ben Roethlisberger, who tested positive for the virus last Saturday, is still in doubt, and the same happens with S Minkah Fitzpatrick, who this Monday was also placed in the COVID-Reserve Reserve. 19 for having a positive test.

Thus, Bosa and Tiller, on the part of the Chargers; and Roethlisberger and Fitzpatrick; on the part of the Steelers, they could remain off the field of play for the next SNF, being, without a doubt, very delicate losses that could end up defining the course of the meeting. What casualties would weigh more if the absences were confirmed?

Trent Brown Considered Retirement As “Nearly Died” by IV Accident

He gave us strong statements on Tuesday from Patriots offensive tackle Trent Brown. In November of last year, while still a member of the Raiders, Brown was about to play Cleveland, but in his pre-game routine at FirstEnergy Stadium, which included receiving intravenous fluids, there was a mishap and an air bubble entered his bloodstream, for which he was rushed to the hospital; And until just yesterday, he confessed that the situation really threatened to end his life:

“Going back and playing the Browns was great because I almost died before we played them last year,” said Brown, who just returned from Injured Reserve and played in New England’s 45-7 win the previous Sunday. . “I was in Cleveland on my own in the hospital for a few days. When I was lying on the floor [del hospital]I definitely thought of my children. I even thought about retiring, honestly. It was that scary. “

Brown ended up being hospitalized for a period of three days. But that was just the beginning of his path back to the NFL: “To fully recover and feel normal again, it probably took about eight months. And to start taking steps, in terms of improvement, and begin to feel myself on the field, more than eight months ”.

After the problem in which Brown was involved, the NFL Players Association confirmed that it intended to investigate the situation, however, no results or findings on the subject were ever announced. What do you think about the strong statements made by Brown?

Jared Goff may not play in Week 11

The Lions could undergo modifications in their offense heading into next Sunday when they visit the Browns in Week 11 of the 2021 NFL Season. This Tuesday, via NFL’s Tom Pelissero Half, QB Jared Goff was reported to be suffering from an oblique injury that could deprive him of hitting the field this weekend.

So far no official decision has been made. Pelissero’s report contends that Detroit coaches want to see Goff at practice Wednesday to determine whether or not he can properly use his core muscles before making a final resolution.

However, unless absolutely necessary, HC Dan Campbell does not plan to bench Goff despite his recent demotion: “Well, it’s hard to say that Goff shouldn’t be the man at the moment. It is difficult to say that (…). Ultimately, I still think right now that he’s the guy who gives us the best chance [para ganar]”Campbell said at a press conference the previous Monday.

However, although changing quarterback is not in Campbell’s initial plans, the team should be prepared to probably play next Sunday with QB3 David Blough; This considering that the direct substitute, Tim Boyle, although he has already been designated to return to training, has not yet been officially activated to the roster of 53 after having spent the entire season on the Injured Reserve after breaking a thumb in the preseason.

Goff this year has completed 66.1% of his shipments for 2,109 total yards, 8 TDs, 6 INTs, and has the Lions (0-8-1) as the only team of the season that does not know the victory at the moment. Could David Blough give them a better chance to come out with a win over Cleveland in Week 11?

Elijah Mitchell in doubt for Week 11 due to fracture

Like last year, this season injuries have been one of the most distressing issues for the 49ers, and heading into Week 11, they could be without one of their best offensive elements. HC Kyle Shanahan told multiple journalists on Tuesday that RB Elijah Mitchell suffered a broken finger in San Francisco’s win over the Rams on Monday Night Football.

Mitchell will undergo a surgical procedure to treat the mishap and his status for the weekend remains uncertain, although Shanahan said doctors are “very optimistic” that his running back can play Sunday against the Jaguars.

If absent, the loss would be brutal for San Francisco’s running game. Mitchell is coming off a spectacular performance last Monday where he registered 91 yards on 27 carries, and currently, the sixth-round rookie out of Louisiana, with 560 total yards, is the 10th best running back in the NFL in the field. RB Jeff Wilson is acting as a direct substitute and will surely need to prepare for more game load this week. How would this possible loss affect the 49ers?

There are still “a couple of weeks” for the return of Mekhi Becton

Things on the Jets’ roster don’t seem to be going all that well. This Monday, HC Robert Saleh said in a press conference that it will still be some time before LT Mekhi Becton, who has been out since Week 1, returns to the field:

“He’s a very, very big man, the knee, the composition of his body, they all heal differently… So Mekhi will take a couple more weeks. Again, it is a larger body, a larger human being. We still trust that it will achieve [volver] during the season, ”Saleh said.

Last September Becton underwent successful surgery for a knee injury, and was given a four to eight week recovery period at the time. However, he is not yet in line to practice, although Saleh ended up adding that his left tackle is “working tirelessly” to return to the field in 2021.

Becton, a Louisville graduate, came to the Jets as the 11th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and in his first season he started 13 of the 14 total games he played, becoming one of the fundamental pillars of New York’s offense. . Surely, if healthy, the trend would have been the same, and rookie quarterback Zach Wilson will appreciate it coming back as soon as possible for much more effective protection. Will we see Becton on the field in 2021?

Bud Dupree could miss “some time” due to injury

In more NFL news, one of the Titans’ recent hires could be off the field indefinitely again. The previous Sunday, when Tennessee defeated New Orleans in Week 10, LB Bud Dupree only played one snap due to an abdominal injury, and this Tuesday, via Jeremy Fowler from ESPN, Dupree was reported to be considered “day-to-day,” however, he is still scheduled to undergo further examinations to accurately determine the severity of the mishap.

Fowler notes in the report that Dupree may be missing “some time,” however, it is not yet known when he might be back. This is a new injury for the 28-year-old linebacker. He had previously missed three games earlier in the season after experiencing a knee injury but then appeared in the Titans’ last four games before being prematurely ruled out Sunday.

The Kentucky graduate, who joined the team last March after signing a 5-year, $ 82 million contract, has had a less-than-ideal start to the season by only registering 1 sack in 7 games played, numbers far removed from what the Titans have. They expected: Dupree had 39.5 sacks in 81 games for the Steelers between 2015 and 2020, and Tennessee certainly hopes the seventh-year linebacker can get into rhythm by the second half of the season. Will Dupree be able to regain the level shown in Pittsburgh?
