|12/5/2019||Adam Vinatieri, Ind, K|
|Vinatieri (knee) reportedly is unlikely to play Sunday at Tampa Bay.
Analysis: The Colts claimed Chase McLaughlin off waivers Wednesday. McLaughlin, a rookie from Illinois, has appeared in four games with the Chargers and three with San Francisco this season. He's made 13 of 17 field goals and all 15 extra points. The 46-year-old Vinatieri, meanwhile, has had one of the worst seasons of his career. He's missed 14 kicks - eight field goals and six extra points. And he missed three field goals in last weekend's 31-17 loss to division rival Tennessee.
|12/4/2019||Baker Mayfield, Cle, QB|
|Mayfield threw in practice Thursday for the first time since injuring his right hand in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh. Mayfield's bruised throwing hand remained wrapped, but he zipped passes to Cleveland's running backs and tight ends during the early portion of the workout open to media members.
Analysis: Mayfield showed both touch and velocity - his last pass was a 30-yard dart - on his throws, increasing the likelihood he'll start Sunday against the Bengals. Mayfield has thrown just two interceptions in his past five games after throwing a league-high 12 in the first seven. He has 15 touchdown passes after breaking the league rookie record with 27 last season.
|12/4/2019||Daniel Jones, NYG, QB|
|Jones was kept out of practice Wednesday with a high right ankle sprain, and coach Pat Shurmur said Eli Manning “very likely” will start Monday night at Philadelphia and could very well be the starter for the rest of the season.
Analysis: Manning started the first two games of the season and passed for 556 yards with two TDs and two interceptions before the Giants made the switch to Jones, who stood on the sideline Wednesday wearing a boot on his right foot.
