Jones is believed to have sustained a torn ACL and will have an MRI on Friday morning to confirm the injury. Jones was defending when his knee buckled and he collapsed to the turf. Stability tests in the locker room after the injury gave strong indications of the ACL injury, per Howe.

It was unclear what kind of player Geno Smith would be when he arrived with the New York Giants following a tumultuous tenure with the Jets.

DeAndre Hopkins agreed to a five-year extension with the Houston Texans. The Houston Texans have their star receiver locked up for the next five seasons. DeAndre Hopkins signed a five-year extension with the Texans, according to multiple reports Thursday evening.

People bristle around here when it’s suggested that Patriots offensive success is because of the system and the scheme. It feels like a whack at the singular talent of the players. It suggests that what’s gone on in New England for nearly two decades isn’t because Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Deion Branch, James White, Shane Vereen, Chris Hogan or Julian Edelman (I could go on) are excellent players but simply landed in the right spot.

Regardless of the decision on Ezekiel Elliott's appeal of his six-game suspension, the Cowboys likely will be without their star running back for a portion of the the 2017 season. Speaking Wednesday at a CBS media event, Romo said if there's any team that can manage losing Elliott, it's Dallas.

After Johnathan Hankins signed with the Colts in free agency this spring, the New York Giants had a pretty big hole to fill at defensive tackle. Damon Harrison, a free agent pickup in 2016, and Hankins were quite the formidable tandem inside for the Giants last season. It was damn near impossible for teams to run the ball between the tackles with those two monsters clogging things up.

Harrison ended up with two and a half of his own. That's not too shabby for two guys who are both listed at 320 pounds or more in the media guide. It’s going

Fantasy owners, take zero note: The New York Jets named Josh McCown their starting quarterback. The Jets had to pick someone to start at quarterback, and it was clear after two preseason starts that it couldn’t be Christian Hackenberg. The Jets would have been better off without a quarterback in last Saturday night’s preseason game against the New York GIants.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills have signed Keith Wenning to address their injury-depleted quarterback position entering their final preseason game. Buffalo turned to Wenning because starter Tyrod Taylor and third-stringer T.J. Yates are

The preseason is just about over, so let’s look at some fantasy WR sleeper and bust candidates from the third weekend. It’s also the busiest week of the fantasy football preseason, when most leagues hold their drafts and make final preparations for the regular season. Or at least, the smart leagues waited until after the third preseason game to do their draft Our apologies if you drafted Julian Edelman or Spencer Ware last week.
