Player Notes

  • Shanahan: Didn't draft Lance to just fix this year
    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the team did not draft Trey Lance "to just fix this year."

    Advice: “We drafted him so he could be the quarterback here of the future," Shanahan continued. The coach added he understands the questions about when Lance will play, but he is not going to make a switch just because the team is not playing well. "I don’t think that’s fair to him and I don’t think that’s right for our team.” Lance did not play well during his one start, but Jimmy Garoppolo is a bad combination of mistake-prone and unable to create big plays. It feels like only a matter of time before Lance is handed the reins.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:27 am

  • Taysom Hill (concussion) remains sidelined Wed.
    Taysom Hill (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Hill suffered the concussion after taking a brutal hit to the head in Week 5. He remained sidelined for the Saints' Week 7 outing versus the Seahawks despite getting a bye week's worth of rest leading up to the game. His continued absence ensures that Jameis Winston and Alvin Kamara will account for all of New Orleans' touchdowns.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:31 pm

  • Fitzpatrick (hip) still weeks from returning
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Fitzpatrick "is still weeks away from returning."

    Advice: Fitzpatrick is still on crutches and is set to undergo an MRI in two weeks. At that point, a timetable for his eventual return could become more clear. The Football team gets their bye in Week 9 but a return immediately following that seems optimistic right now. Taylor Heinicke will remain under center for the foreseeable future. Heinicke ranks 23rd in yards per attempt (7.1) and 24th in passer rating (86.8) among qualified passers. Only Terry McLaurin, J.D. McKissic, and Ricky Seals-Jones can be trusted as fantasy options from this team's passing game. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:56 pm

  • Oops: Joe Flacco not joining the Jets until Friday
    Joe Flacco will not join the Jets until Friday and is likely to be inactive for Week 8.

    Advice: The Jets traded for Flacco with the idea that he would help fill in at quarterback while Zach Wilson recovers from a PCL injury, but Flacco hasn't joined the team yet. Josh Johnson now looks likely to back up Mike White against the Bengals. Given that Flacco is in Philadelphia, the quarterback's delay in getting to New York is rather inexplicable. Flacco is showing the same sense of urgency in rejoining the Jets as he does under pressure. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:19 am

  • Stefanski: Baker to log full practice Wednesday
    Browns coach Kevin Stefanski expects Baker Mayfield (shoulder) "to do everything in practice today."

    Advice: Stefanski added that Mayfield will get his normal allotment of snaps with the starters. It's a surprisingly quick return for Mayfield, who was originally dealing with a partially torn labrum before dislocating and fracturing that same shoulder. The injuries occurred in his non-throwing arm but they will ultimately require surgery, which Mayfield is expected to undergo in the offseason. Case Keenum drew the start in Week 7 and Mayfield was absent from practice the following Monday. Whether it's Keenum or Mayfield under center for Week 8, the Browns will undoubtedly hide their quarterback behind a run-heavy attack versus the Steelers.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:12 am
