The veteran hopes to avoid IR-recall.
Each team has one IR with designation to return slot per season.
Some other injury news we are following Friday:
- The Buccaneers' plan right now is to place running back Charles Sims, who underwent ankle surgery in August, on the IR-recall list, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported. The hope is that the team would get a fresh set of legs for a stretch in a tough NFC South. Sims' recovery period is scheduled to last 12-14 weeks, and the team was debating shutting the rookie down for the entire season.
- The Bills dodged a bullet on the Sammy Watkins front. Rapoport reported Friday that Buffalo's first-round wide receiver came out of Thursday night's preseason loss to the Lions without a serious injury to his ribs, per a source informed of the team's situation. The feeling from the Bills is that Watkins should be good to go for Sunday's opener against the Bears.
We will continue to update this list as more injury news pours in.
