We'll try to look back at the why and how of where they were selected and what we thought of that prospect prior to the draft. Alabama RB Damien Harris New England Patriots 5-foot-11, 214 pounds 2019 NFL draft: Round 3, No. 87 overall The 2020 season was the Patriots' worst in two decades. Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski were gone. Julian Edelman played in a few games before getting hurt and then retiring. The defense was terrible against the run. The Patriots generated few big plays on offense. They finished 7-9, getting outscored at Gillette Stadium at home. But one of the few brights spots was Harris, who was limited to 10 games because of injuries but who ran for 691 yards and two TDs despite receiving more than 17 carries in...

    Getty Indianapolis Colts running back looks on before a 2019 game against the New Orleans Saints. Despite several rumored trade targets, the Baltimore Ravens opted to stand pat at the NFL’s trade deadline today, leaving some fans disappointed that the Ravens didn’t make any acquisitions. Many league observers were expecting the Ravens to trade for a running back to bolster their backfield, with Ronald Jones II of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miles Sanders of the Philadelphia Eagles listed as potential additions. But rumors quieted after Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said that a trade offer for Jones would have to be “extraordinary” in order to pry the young running back away from Tampa Bay. Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack had been linked with the Ravens several times, but he stayed put despite the Ravens’ clear need at the position and Mack’s publicly-known availability via trade.Ravens Earn ‘Loser’ DesignationBut the Ravens’ failure to make a move did earn them some criticism, especially given Mack’s apparent availability and the low-risk, high-upside nature of his acquisition.

The first-year running back waited for the "Monday Night Football" stage to score his first career professional touchdown, one that gave the Chiefs a temporary 14-7 lead.

    Getty The Buccaneers continue to be linked to major roster moves. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers face a difficult decision at the NFL trade deadline thanks to their depth at running back. Bleacher Report’s Maurice Moton has the Buccaneers dealing running back Ronald Jones to the Ravens as one of his five “bold predictions” for the trade deadline despite the team insisting they plan to keep the running back. “The Baltimore Ravens should offer a late-round pick for Jones. They already lost running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who tore their ACLs, along with Justice Hill,” Moton detailed. “To shore up the backfield, the front office signed Latavius Murray, Le’Veon Bell and DeVonta Freeman, three guys well beyond their best years. “The Ravens don’t seem to trust second-year running back Ty’Son Williams, who saw his role shrink after three consecutive starts between Weeks 1 and 3. Jones, who’s just 24 years old, could lead Baltimore’s ground attack and make a strong impression through the remainder of the term.” ALL the latest Bucs news straight to your inbox!...
    The Tennessee Titans could be losing star running back Derrick Henry to a season-ending foot injury that was sustained during the team’s game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon. One day later, the Titans — who are now the No. 1 seed in the AFC — acted quickly by signing a former league MVP. The legendary running back Adrian Peterson said he agreed to a deal that will bring the former 2,000-yard rusher to Tennessee.

(Wesley Hitt/Getty Images) Peterson told NFL journalist Josina Anderson that he is signing with the Titans after working out for the team on Monday.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Matt Rhule has been preaching for weeks that the Carolina Panthers need to stay committed to running the football and rely on a defense filled with former first- and second-round draft picks to win games. The Panthers (4-4) did just that Sunday, running the ball 47 times for 203 yards and holding the Atlanta Falcons to 213 total yards of offense to snap a four-game losing steak with a 19-13 road win. Carolina is expected to follow that same formula for success Sunday against the New England Patriots, especially if running back Christian McCaffrey is able to return from a hamstring injury and backup P.J. Walker is pressed into a starting role at quarterback. Sam Darnold is in the league’s concussion protocol, but Rhule is “hopeful” that his QB will play against the Patriots. As for McCaffrey, he’ll test out his hamstring in practice Wednesday and the team will make a determination on his status later in the week. “Hopefully we can get Christian back soon,” Rhule said. “If it’s not this week, hopefully it will...
    Getty Ronald Jones II's name gets floated again in NFL trade rumors. Ronald Jones hit the trade rumors again after the Tennessee Titans lost star running back Derrick Henry to a potential season-ending injury on Sunday. Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians will want a king’s ransom for Jones, who came into the season as a starting running back. A former second-round draft pick, Jones nearly tallied 1,000 yards last season before Leonard Fournette established himself as the top back this season. “It would have to be something really, really special. Because I love the way he’s running,” Arians told the media on Monday via ESPN’s Jenna Laine. “It’s just one nick on Leonard and then Rojo’s the guy. And so to me, it’s still a great one-two punch. It would have to be extraordinary.” ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Jones as one of seven potential trade targets for the Titans, which seek to fill a massive void without Henry. Last season’s NFL Offensive Player of the Year, dominated again this season with 937 yards and 10 touchdowns...
    Getty Ben Roethlisberger fakes a handoff to Jerome Bettis. It was January 23, 2005. The Pittsburgh Steelers had fallen short of a trip to the Super Bowl after being snuffed out by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, 41-27. For running back Jerome “The Bus” Bettis, it was the last game of an illustrious career. By the time fresh-faced quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had arrived in Pittsburgh just nine months earlier, The Bus had already been rolling for 11 seasons — an eternity for a running back, especially in a run-heavy league, and he was running on empty. “I was done,” Bettis told Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s, Ron Cook. “I was getting old. My body was starting to break down. It was difficult. I didn’t think I had another year in me.” Roethlisberger, who took the Steelers to a record of 15-1 as a rookie, wasn’t ready to let this heartbreaking loss be Bettis’ last NFL memory. As the seconds ticked away in the AFC title game, Roethlisberger spotted a contemplative Bettis on the bench. The quarterback made...
    Getty Baltimore Ravens running back Ty'Son Williams carries the ball against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Baltimore Ravens might not be enamored with running back Ty’Son Williams, who’s been a healthy scratch for two games this season, but they might find a trade market for him after Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry suffered a potentially-season ending foot injury yesterday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported Henry’s injury, and later listed Williams as a potential trade target for the Titans. Williams spent last season on the Ravens’ practice squad before preseason injuries to J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill elevated him to a starting role for Baltimore’s regular season opener against the Las Vegas Raiders. He built off a promising preseason, totaling 142 yards on 22 carries for almost 6.5 yards per carry in Weeks 1 and 2, but has fallen out of favor since, receiving only 11 carries for 38 yards in his last three appearances. With their backfield struggling in the last few games, the Ravens may be planning to give Williams another shot, but they’ll...
    Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans. (Mandatory Credit: Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports) The Tennessee Titans may have to make a trade with the news of Derrick Henry being out indefinitely with a broken foot. Though the Tennessee Titans are the class of the AFC South once again, they are really up against it with their best player being out indefinitely with a Jones fracture in his foot: Running back Derrick Henry. Tennessee had to grind out a tough division game vs. the Indianapolis Colts in overtime on Sunday. Though the Titans came out victorious, and got the most crucial season sweep of Indianapolis, it came at a price. Without their best player going forward, Tennessee is not a threat to come out of the AFC this year. However, this team is still talented and is in a great spot to win the AFC South. With the NFL trade deadline rapidly approaching, ESPN’s Adam Schefter laid out a few running backs Tennessee could target to replace Henry in the interim. Let’s assess the overall viability of the Titans being able to make a trade for...

Pittsburgh Steelers placekicker Chris Boswell suffered a concussion on a widely criticized fake field goal attempt against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, with the injury coming on a hit that probably should have been flagged for roughing the passer.

    ROBLOX players were thrown into chaos last week when the platform went down with no warning. But after three days offline, Roblox is back up and running, and no, Chipotle wasn't to blame. 1Chipotle's Boorito Roblox experience wasn't to blame for the outageCredit: Chipotle The outage happened shortly after the Chipotle Halloween experience went live, but it was simply a spooky coincidence. A bug was reportedly to blame, rather than a surge in traffic related to any particular Roblox experience. CEO David Baszucki elaborated on the issue in a Roblox blog post, saying: "A core system in our infrastructure became overwhelmed, prompted by a subtle bug in our backend service communications while under heavy load. "This was not due to any peak in external traffic or any particular experience. "Rather the failure was caused by the growth in the number of servers in our datacenters." The Roblox team was slow to acknowledge the problem, with gamers relying on unofficial Twitter accounts for their updates. Roblox Status is one such account which we kept tabs on during the unexpected...
    Getty Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones carries the ball against the New Orleans Saints. The Baltimore Ravens might have the third-most rushing yards in the NFL, but that has come largely in spite of, not due to, their makeshift backfield. After preseason injuries ended the season of Baltimore’s top three running backs, the Ravens have been forced to lean on Ty’Son Williams, Latavius Murray, Le’Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman at running back. But none of the four have been able to get going this season, with Williams’ 36 yards per game leading the group. To make matters worse, Murray, who leads the backfield in rushing attempts, yards and touchdowns, missed last week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals due to an ankle sprain, with no set timetable for his return. As a result, Lamar Jackson has taken on a superhuman role in Baltimore’s offense, accounting for 83% of the team’s 2,923 total yards on offense this season. That includes 480 rushing yards, the sixth-most in the NFL on just 76 carries, for a league-leading 6.3 yards per...
    A history of zombie movies 10 Reasons You Should Claim Social Security Early Let Jerome Bettis take the floor and make an MVP case for the NFL’s best running back. © Andrew Nelles, The Tennessean Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry in action last Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Derrick Henry, the Tennessee Titans’ sledgehammer of a weapon, is following up on his 2,000-yard season with so much more of the same. "For me as a running back, I love not only his dominance at the point-of-attack, but it’s his ability, too, to run away from guys and go 80 or 90 yards," Bettis, the Hall of Famer, told USA TODAY Sports this week. "That’s insane. And he’s so consistent. The numbers are astronomical."   From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day. Henry heads back to Indianapolis – where on his last two trips he ripped up the Colts with 178- and 149-yard rushing games – as the NFL’s runaway train of a rushing leader. With 869 yards...
    Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III was the talk of the town after a Heisman performance vs. Michigan. Russell Wilson even took notice. Kenneth Walker III made a Heisman statement on the football field on Saturday. By the time he got back to his phone, he had some big-time names in his mentions.

    Getty Rex Burkhead At one point before the 2021 season started, the running back’s room was seen as arguably the New England Patriots strongest position group. Since then, New England traded away former leading rusher Sony Michel to the Los Angeles Rams and veteran third-down back James White was lost for the season with a serious hip injury. In its current state, the Patriots’ running backs are not near the bottom of the league, but there are perhaps some depth concerns. Those concerns have led to some trade speculation about adding a player who can fill the gap some hoped rookie Rhamondre Stevenson would be able to plug. We’ve heard names like Indianapolis Colts former 1,000-yard rusher Marlon Mack and others. “””ALL the latest Patriots news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Patriots newsletter here!

Cincinnati announced on Saturday that the club has activated defensive end Khalid Kalid Kareem off of injured reserve. Kareem started the regular season on IR with a shoulder injury. A 2020 fifth-round pick out of Notre Dame, Kareem appeared in all 16 games last season for Cincinnati, playing 24 percent of defensive snaps and 19 percent of special teams snaps. He recorded 19 total tackles, a sack, and a tackle for loss as a rookie. With backup running back Chris Evans out due to a hamstring injury, the Bengals have used a standard elevation to promote running back Trayveon Williams to the active roster for Sunday’s contest against the Jets.

    Dorit Kemsley Robbery Resulted in ‘Significant Monetary Loss,’ Police Say How Much Is GM Worth? The Big Ten has produced its share of top-flight running backs over the years.  This year is no different with the emergence of Michigan State's Kenneth Walker, who follows in a longstanding tradition of Big Ten running backs taking both the college and eventually NFL circuits by storm.  From Jonathan Taylor at Wisconsin, to Le'Veon Bell at Michigan State or Saquon Barkley at Penn State, some of the best running backs in the league at one time or another hailed from the Big Ten. But Walker's journey, at least in part, is different than the recent prominent Big Ten running backs: he hasn't been a 1,000 yard rushing threat until now, his junior year, and hasn't been a feature back until this year, either. He also isn't a receiving threat out of the backfield the way Barkley, Bell and other contemporaries were. MORE: Where is College GameDay this week? This isn't about what Walker can't do or hasn't done up until now. Rather it's a...
    In what is beginning to look like a historic season for NFL rookies, take a gander at Ja’Marr Chase, Jaylen Waddle and Kyle Pitts — all high first-rounders in last April’s draft. Cincinnati wide receiver Chase, the No. 5 overall selection out of LSU, ranks second in the league with 754 receiving yards, the most by a player in his first seven career games. If Chase leads the league in receiving yards after this week’s game at the Jets, he will become the first rookie to do so at this point of a season. “He’s a stud, man, which everyone knew coming out,” Jets coach Robert Saleh said. “What he’s doing for this Cincinnati team is very similar to kind of what Deebo Samuel did for San Francisco his rookie year when he just kind of unlocked a lot of different things offensively for the rest of the guys and everyone’s gotten better. “They’re already good, but they’ve gotten better because of his presence.” Miami wide receiver Waddle, taken one spot after Chase, is tops among rookies with...
    Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary (26): (Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports) Fantasy owners were able to survive the slog that was the running back position during Week 7. This week, things get a lot easier.  The bye week disaster that was Week 7 is over, and now people can have a normalish week in fantasy football. The NFL is getting back Dalvin Cook, James Robinson, Ezekiel Elliott, Austin Ekeler, and Najee Harris while only losing whatever the Raiders and Ravens running back situations are. It’s an amazing trade-off for NFL fans and fantasy players. There are hairy situations around the NFL backfields. D’Ernest Johnson won people leagues who were bold enough to play him, but it sounds like Nick Chubb is ready to return this Sunday for the Cleveland Browns.

    Jessica Dalton turns 33 Sunday, so she’s looking to run 33 miles on Saturday. (Courtesy Jessica Dalton) Jessica Dalton, of Allentown, Pennsylvania, loves to run the Marine Corps Marathon as a way to honor the military, which runs deep in her family. “My entire family has been serving in the military,” Dalton, 32, said on a Zoom call. “Both my grandfathers, my father, my aunt and my uncle have served.” Dalton still has the dress blues her grandfather earned while serving in World War II, and has thumbed through the diary he kept while serving overseas — including when he stormed the beach in Normandy, France. The writing isn’t the cleanest, and it’s not more than a line or two each day: The entry for June 6, 1944, says “d. day (This is it),” then something like “Left … early in the morning for France with American troops.” It’s hard to tell. The words on June 7 are even tougher to read, but say something to the effect of “not much enemy aircraft … lots of anti-aircraft fire.” He’s been...
    Players from the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals had to be carted off the field on Thursday night during their game after colliding in the third quarter. On a kickoff, Packers returner Kylin Hill brought the ball out of the end zone to about his own 9-yard line when he was met by Cardinals player Jonathan Ward.

    Justin Berl/Getty Images Jaylen Samuels of the Pittsburgh Steelers carries the ball against the New England Patriots on December 16, 2018. On Wednesday October 27 the Pittsburgh Steelers released fourth-year running back Jaylen Samuels from the practice squad.

    Getty Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon. Mack scores a touchdown in November 2019. After a rough outing against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens could be in the market for upgrades at a few positions, including offensive tackle and cornerback, before the NFL’s November 2 trade deadline. Another position of need in Baltimore is running back, as the Ravens’ makeshift backfield has struggled, with the exception of Latavius Murray. Ty’Son Williams had a promising start to the year, racking up 142 yards on 23 carries in Baltimore’s first two games but has since fallen out of favor. He’s only received 11 carries in the Ravens’ last five games, two of which he sat out as a healthy scratch. Despite a recent promotion to the 53-man roster, Le’Veon Bell is only averaging 2.0 yards per carry and hasn’t been a factor catching passes out of the backfield. Devonta Freeman has looked promising, with 20 carries for 109 yards this season, but almost a third of that total came on a 31-yard run in Week 2. That’s why...

Last year's receiving touchdown leader Davante Adams will miss this game, along with fellow receiver Allen Lazard and defensive coordinator Joe Barry, who tested positive for COVID-19.

    Getty Former Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram looks on during a January 2020 playoff game. The Houston Texas have traded former Baltimore Ravens running back Mark Ingram back to his very first NFL team, the New Orleans Saints, reported Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network yesterday. When Mark Ingram left the #Saints for the #Ravens, it was disheartening for New Orleans. That was their guy. Now, Mark Ingram is back. https://t.co/jvqbMQLTqY — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 27, 2021 The move sees Ingram go from one of the league’s bottom-dwellers to a playoff contender, as the Saints currently sit at second place in the NFC South with a 4-2 record. Though it might be difficult for them to unseat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the top of the division, they’ll certainly be in contention for a wild card spot. Ingram joins a New Orleans backfield that has gotten little out of anyone not named Alvin Kamara this season, so he could step right into a featured role, especially since he’s familiar with head coach Sean Payton’s...
    The Giants and Carolina Panthers both required rebuilds after Dave Gettleman used a top 10 draft pick on a running back as the teams’ GM in back to back years. The absence of the Panthers’ Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) and the Giants’ Saquon Barkley (ankle) from Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium also reinforces the risk of using a premium pick on that position. After Sunday, McCaffrey will have missed 74% of the Panthers’ games since the start of the 2020 season and 24% of their games since he was drafted in 2017. Barkley will have missed 69.5% of the Giants’ games since the start of the 2020 season and 34.5% of the Giants’ games since he was drafted in 2018. The running back position was the second least valuable position on an NFL field in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus. The top 32 running backs generated 2.99 wins above replacement, ahead of only centers (2.53). Quarterbacks ranked first with a 53.3 WAR. “You look across the National Football League, I don’t think anyone’s building it around one player,” Panthers coach...
    Justin Berl/Getty Images Jaylen Samuels #38 of the Pittsburgh Steelers stiff arms Sheldrick Redwine of the Cleveland Browns on December 1, 2019. On Wednesday the Pittsburgh Steelers signed defensive tackle Chris Slayton to the practice squad, a move made in response to second-year defensive tackle Carlos Davis being placed on injured reserve. Slayton, 25, is a former seventh-round draft pick of the New York Giants, selected No. 245 overall in 2019 out of Syracuse University. The 6-foot-4, 307 pounder had a standout four-year career for the Orange, during which time he was a three-year starter and also served as a defensive captain. In 49 career games (42 starts), he recorded 107 tackles (66 solo) with 32.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, three pass breakups, one fumble recovery and one blocked kick. “If he was more consistent, he would be a higher pick,” said draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. during ESPN’s broadcast of the 2019 NFL Draft. “He’s got the upper-body strength. He can stack. He can shed against the run, generate some pressure,...
    Joe Sargent/Getty Images Anthony McFarland of the Pittsburgh Steelers carries the ball against the Detroit Lions on August 21, 2021. Pittsburgh Steelers running back Anthony McFarland Jr. has missed all of this season with a torn MCL, an injury recently revealed to be “an old tear (from college) and then a new tear.” But he might see his first action of the year against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday October 31, as the Steelers placed him on the active roster on Wednesday. During his press conference on Tuesday October 26, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said, “I’m anticipating us activating (McFarland). I think this week’s work will determine if there is a role, and if there is, what that role is.” The reason for Tomlin’s sense of anticipation was that the Steelers faced a deadline for activating McFarland. He was designated to return from injured reserve on October 6, starting a 21-day window for the Steelers to add him to the roster. If the team had failed to do so, he would have been required to miss...
    On Tuesday’s “MSNBC Live,” host Stephanie Ruhle told DNC Chair Jaime Harrison that “it seems like Democrats continue to just be running against Trump” and “Democrats are going to have to start addressing” inflation “in the now and not just say it’s transitory.” Ruhle asked, “Jaime, this is the first big test for Democrats, but in Virginia and nationwide, why is it that it seems like Democrats continue to just be running against Trump? He’s not in office.” Harrison responded, “Well, listen, Stephanie, I wouldn’t say this is the first big test. We had to fight back and push back against the recall in California. We’ve got a race in New Jersey right now, and Virginia as well. And this is the thing, Donald Trump, if you ask the Republicans, he’s still the head of their party. Ronna McDaniel has said that often. We see that in terms of how the Republicans react. And he has endorsed Glenn Youngkin six times in this race. And so, his presence is looming still in American politics. And so, therefore, it’s important that...
    An inspection of Metro’s 7000-Series trains has found 20 axles were out of alignment, a spokesman for the transit agency said during a Tuesday briefing. Inspections, though, are done with those 748 trains, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority spokesman Ian Jannetta told reporters. Those trains — which make up about 60% of its fleet – have been under scrutiny after the derailment of a Blue Line train earlier this month. Wheels on those trains have been the particular focus, and federal regulators have already said the problem could have led to a “catastrophic incident.” With the inspections done, the next step to getting them up and running again is submitting a testing plan to the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission for review and approval, which he said should happen on Wednesday. Only 31 trains were running Monday, with an additional two serving as “gap trains” to reduce crowding and “compensate for any unscheduled maintenance issues,” Jannetta said. Tracking the D.C. Metro 24/7 More Transportation News More Local News They all accounted for about 151,000 trips on Monday — “more...

    (CBS4) – Ring of Famer Karl Mecklenburg has been sharing his perspective on the Broncos up and down season on a weekly basis on social media, and his latest comments have reached “trending” status on Facebook. He posted a straight-to-the-point analysis of Denver’s Thursday night loss to the Browns, and Facebook analysis tool Crowdtangle showed it had a high number of interactions. Karl Mecklenburg (credit: CBS) In a 10/18 Facebook post, Mecklenburg said losing inside linebacker Alexander Johnson to injury in Week 6 would likely lead to a big problem for the Broncos defense. That’s because Johnson was the one “calling the plays in the huddle and making adjustments for the front seven.” “Playing professional football is challenging enough when you’re all on the same page, but trying to play defense without everyone understanding the call and adjustments is impossible,” Mecklenburg wrote. Then, after Thursday’s devastating 17-14 loss in Cleveland Mecklenburg wrote “Unfortunately my fears about Denver Broncos inside linebacker play and on field defensive coordination were proven true.” Mecklenburg went on to say that the defense “made a third...
    Courtesy of Vikings Vikings running back Ameer Abdullah bid the franchise farewell after deciding to sign with the Carolina Panthers. Minnesota Vikings running back and reliable return man Ameer Abdullah has been a bubble player all season. It was believed Abdullah, a three-year veteran with the team, would sign to the Vikings practice squad after the team activated fourth-round rookie Kene Nwangwu to the 53-man roster on Tuesday. However, Abdullah found more opportunities elsewhere. He is expected to sign with the Carolina Panthers after working out with the team earlier this week, per NFL Network‘s Ian Rapoport.

    Running back JaMycal Hasty’s ankle has recovered after a month, and perhaps that is just what the 49ers’ rushing attack needs heading into Sunday night’s game against Indianapolis. Hasty got activated off injured reserve Saturday and figures to complement rookie starter Elijah Mitchell, with Trey Sermon in reserve. The 49ers could need as many rushers as possible to combat rainy conditions, possibly the wettest game in Levi’s Stadium’s eight-year history. “I expect him to be full go,” coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday of Hasty. “He had a real good week, which you never know when they’re coming back from a high ankle. But he looked good Monday and continued all the way to (Friday). So, no concerns.” Hasty got hurt in a Week 2 win at Philadelphia, after totaling 38 rushing yards (five carries) and 21 receiving yards (four catches). A broken collarbone ended his rookie season last November at New Orleans. OTHER MOVES Summoned from the practice squad were quarterback Nate Sudfeld, linebacker Tyrell Adams and tight end Tanner Hudson, who are needed...
    We must invest in a transportation transition — and workers Facebook resisted changes meant to dial back viral content, report says © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The Bears’ first-string running back is still out, but they’re their second-string running back will return on Sunday against the Buccaneers. Chicago announced that running back Damien Williams has been activated off the COVID-19 reserve list. He will presumably start on Sunday, although it hasn’t much mattered this season who’s starting at running back for the Bears. Williams has played fine in place of the injured David Montgomery, and last week rookie Khalil Herbert played well in place of Williams. The Bears also announced that Akiem Hicks has been downgraded to out and won’t travel to Tampa. And the Bears called up offensive lineman Dieter Eiselen and defensive lineman Margus Hunt from the practice squad.

    Cleveland Browns running back D’Ernest Johnson had one heck of a game on Thursday, adding another amazing step in his journey from making a living on a fishing boat to becoming a blossoming NFL star in only three short years. And he gave thanks to God for his good fortunes. Johnson was working as a member of a fishing boat crew when he was finally drafted at 22 years of age in 2018. And thanks to the coronavirus and the needed time to pay some of his NFL dues on the bench, Johnson never really had much of an opportunity to show what he could do on the gridiron. But all that changed on Thursday, and after he stepped out onto the field, he made everyone sit up and take notice. The third-string running back finally got his moment in Cleveland’s 17-14 win over the Denver Broncos, and when the last second had counted down, Johnson had rushed for 146 yards and earned one touchdown. “We might have lost that game without that performance that we had from him,” former...
    SAN JOSE — Not long ago, some wondered when St. Francis would beat Bellarmine again. In this historic West Catholic Athletic League rivalry, the Lancers lost 11 consecutive games against the Bells from 2006-2015, an unfathomable run given the program’s rich football history, But now some wonder when Bellarmine will win another game in the series that began 63 years ago. Friday night, in the latest chapter of the Holy War, St. Francis took command in the second quarter behind Viliami Teu’s powerful and electrifying running, Joshua Perry’s passing, and physical defense. The Lancers went on to defeat Bellarmine 44-24 before a packed house at San Jose City College to improve to 7-0 overall and 5-0 in the WCAL. Bellarmine fell to 5-3, 2-3. St. Francis stretched its winning streak over the Bells to six games, its longest in the series. The Lancers won five in a row from 1996-99. “We just believe in ourselves,” St. Francis coach Greg Calcagno said. “We believe in us and do what we do.” What St....
    RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Rashaad Penny was quick to address the ongoing issue of his ability to stay healthy and available for the Seattle Seahawks. He’s really tired of finding himself on the injury report. “I really don’t go out there to just miss games. I don’t come in here to miss games, miss practice. I really try to be available,” Penny said Friday. “But sometimes your body says no. And unfortunately my body has been saying no to me a lot.” Penny is hoping for a run of good health beginning this week. He was designated to return to practice from injured reserve this week by the Seahawks with the expectation he will be added to the active roster ahead of Monday’s matchup with New Orleans. The timing is critical for Seattle. With Chris Carson out and Alex Collins battered after last week’s game at Pittsburgh, it turns out Penny is likely the team’s healthiest running back this week. It could end up being the first start of Penny’s career. “He’s been working out to be...
    Getty Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry. Despite seeing more usage than most running backs in the NFL, Derrick Henry is showing no signs of slowing down. Running backs have had a much shorter shelf life in the league over recent years but Henry is just a different beast. He rushed for over 2,000 yards last year and is on pace to do it again this season. The Las Vegas Raiders are one of the lucky teams that won’t have to face him this season but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have their full respect. Madden ratings have been a major talking point for players. It gives players a numerical value to gauge how others think of them. However, they usually become the subject of controversy. Henry was recently upgraded to a 98 overall ranking, which puts him in rare company. That still wasn’t good enough for Raiders defensive back Johnathan Abram, who ripped Madden and their rating system. ????no lie, this why I don't play games no more. How this man not 99? He the created player we all...
    Getty Houston Texans running back Mark Ingram during the team's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on September 12, 2021. For the fourth straight season, the Buffalo Bills have a split backfield. They have no “workhorse” running back, no every-down back and from week-to-week, fantasy football managers and Bills Mafia alike are stuck waiting to see which player will get the carries when the ball is in the red zone. It’s true, the Bills have a (somewhat) unique situation in their backfield because they have one of the best rushing quarterbacks in the game with Josh Allen, but when he’s not escaping pressure and taking off for chunk gains, it’s anybody’s guess whether it’ll be Devin Singletary or Zack Moss getting the rock. It just so happens that in each of the last three seasons, the Bills have improved their record under now fourth-year head coach Sean McDermott, so perhaps there’s something to having a mobile signal-caller and a pair of running backs who split the totes, and the success shouldn’t be messed with.

    On Thursday night a horrific tragedy happened on a movie set in New Mexico. Alec Baldwin allegedly fired a prop gun that killed Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, and injured director Joel Souza. Authorities are investigating what happened, but according to Variety, a “live single round” may have been in the prop gun. Ohio Republican candidate J.D. Vance reacted on Friday with the grace and dignity one would expect from someone running to be a United States senator. And by grace and dignity, I mean he made a crack about getting Donald Trump back on Twitter so he could share his thoughts on Baldwin. Dear @jack let Trump back on. We need Alec Baldwin tweets. — J.D. Vance (@JDVance1) October 22, 2021 “Dear @jack let Trump back on. We need Alec Baldwin tweets,” Vance tweeted.
