Latest on Week 2 in the NFL (All Time EDT):
Chicago Bears nose tackle Eddie Goldman is inactive against the Cincinnati Bengals after being listed as questionable due to a knee injury.
Goldman also missed Chicago’s season opener loss to the Rams in Los Angeles. He stepped down last year due to concerns over COVID-19.
Goldman started 63 of the 67 games he played for Chicago from 2015 to 2019 after being drafted in the second round in Florida State.
Sam Darnold’s job just got a little easier in week 2.
The Saints have announced they will be without cornerback Marshon Lattimore (hand) and safety CJ Gardner-Johnson (knee) against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, which is a big blow to the New Brunswick high school. Orleans.
Darnold, the Panthers’ new starting quarterback, just finished a game where he threw for 279 yards and a touchdown and also ran for a score in a 19-14 win over his former team, the New York Jets. Despite the win, the Panthers struggled in the red zone scoring just one touchdown in four trips inside the Jets’ 20-yard line.
Browns left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. plays against Houston after being listed as questionable and not training all week.
Wills sprained his left ankle early in last week’s season opener loss in Kansas City. He entered the field at FirstEnergy Stadium a few hours before kick-off and tested his ankle with coach Kevin Stefanski, line coach Bill Callahan and members of the Cleveland medical staff.
No.10 overall pick in 2020, Wills also suffered a serious ankle injury in Cleveland’s playoff loss to Kansas City.
To complicate matters for the Browns, Wills replacement Chris Hubbard came out with a triceps injury. If Wills couldn’t play – or if he has to go up – Blake Hance will likely move to the left tackle point.
Russell Wilson is hoping Week 2 of the NFL season is a personal milestone. Wilson will try his 100th regular season victory when he leads the Seattle Seahawks against the Tennessee Titans.
The Seattle “12” will be back in the stands on Sunday for the first time since December 29, 2019, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Titans will try to avoid a 0-2 start as Wilson aims for his 100th win in his 146th start. Only Tom Brady (131) and Joe Montana (139) have won 100 games in fewer games.
In one of the best clashes of the week, Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson will face off for the fourth consecutive season in an MVP quarterback clash. Jackson is 0-3 against Mahomes, 30-5 against everyone.
Andy Dalton will make his first home start with Chicago as the Bears face Cincinnati. Most Bears fans are eager to see first-round draft pick Justin Fields, who performed well in a cameo in Game 1, take over from Dalton.
The New Orleans Saints will have eight coaches unable to attend their game in Carolina due to positive COVID-19 tests. Offensive line coach Brendan Nugent has cleared COVID-19 protocols and is now ready to train. On Saturday, assistant head coach and defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen, and defensive assistant Brian Young were added to the list of coaches unable to attend the game.
