Chargers downgrade Michael Badgley to doubtful

Chargers kicker Michael Badgley is set to miss his third straight game.

Week Three of the 2019 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Jaguars and it continues with 14 more games on Sunday, which means that the 28 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday.

Laremy Tunsil questionable for Texans, expects to play

The Texans gave up a king’s ransom to get Laremy Tunsil as their left tackle. Still, Deshaun Watson, sacked a league-high 62 times last season, already has taken 10 sacks and 18 hits this season.

Whitney Mercilus is the AFC defensive player of the week

Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus said in the offseason that it was “pretty cool” to get a chance to show that he’s more than a pass rusher, but last Sunday’s win over the Jaguars showed he’s pretty good in that role. Mercilus was a major thorn in the side of the Jacksonville offensive line as he [more]

Chargers sign tight end Lance Kendricks

The Chargers signed a tight end with Hunter Henry recovering from a tibial plateau fracture, but the new tight end’s name is not Antonio Gates.
