  Titans activate Jeffery Simmons from reserve/COVID-19 list Top defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons is now back on Tennessee’s active roster after testing positive for COVID-19. Simmons landed on the Titans’ COVID list Oct. 3 but is now on track to play in Week 6. He will have missed only one game, with the Titans’ scheduled Week 4 contest against the Steelers having been converted to a bye week after the team’s issues with the virus. Tennessee selected Simmons in the 2019 first round and saw the Mississippi State product bounce back quickly despite tearing his ACL before the ’19 draft.

The Cowboys traded defensive end Everson Griffen to the Detroit Lions on Tuesday for a sixth-round pick in 2021, multiple sources said. Dallas Cowboys defensive end Everson Griffen (97) celebrates after sacking Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (2) during second half of play at AT

The Lions traded the 2-5 Cowboys a sixth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft for defensive end Everson Griffen , according to Griffen is in the midst of a one-year deal which he signed with Dallas this offseason. Detroit will pick up half of Griffen ’s million salary for the 2020 campaign, according

It appears that the Dallas Cowboys might be on the verge of throwing in the towel for the 2020 NFL season. At 2-5 and going nowhere fast, Dallas is selling off some of its veteran assets. That includes the Cowboys trading Pro Bowl defensive end Everson Griffen to the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Dallas acquired a conditional sixth-round pick in return for the four-time Pro Bowl performer.

This is somewhat of a surprising move in that the Cowboys signed Griffen to a one-year, $6 million contract about 2.5 months ago.

49ers center Weston Richburg not ready to come off IR

  49ers center Weston Richburg not ready to come off IR San Francisco’s starting center will need more time to recover from the torn patellar tendon he suffered late last season. Kyle Shanahan said Friday that neither Richburg nor defensive lineman Ronald Blair will be ready to return when eligible after Week 6, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. Both suffered injuries last season; Blair went down in November, Richburg in December.Both are likelier to return between Weeks 10 and 12, per Shanahan. The 49ers’ bye week is currently slated for Week 11. Richburg said in February a training camp return was realistic.

The Dallas Cowboys traded veteran defensive end Everson Griffen to the Detroit Lions for a conditional draft pick, the team announced Tuesday. In Minnesota, Griffen was a dominant force very familiar with the Lions . In 19 games against them, Griffen had 16 sacks -- including at least one

3 trade deadline fast approaching, the Dallas Cowboys are putting at least one big name on the During his final season with the Vikings in 2019, Griffen was named to the Pro Bowl after recording When bad things happen in a Lions game, they're usually happening to Detroit, but on Sunday things

The former Minnesota Vikings star recorded six quarterback hits and 2.5 sacks in seven games with the Cowboys this season.

Is this an indication that the Cowboys are giving up on the 2020 NFL season?

Owner Jerry Jones spoke with a local radio station on Tuesday. He was not his normal self, going off on those interviewing him at the time. However, the longtime Cowboys owner did indicate that there would be player personnel moves ahead of the Nov. 3 NFL trade deadline. He did not get into specifics.

Hours later, the Cowboys traded one of their biggest offseason acquisitions. That can’t be seen as a coincidence. The question here is whether Dallas also plans to add talent at the deadline. Despite boasting a 2-5 record, the Cowboys are just a half game behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East heading into their Week 8 contest.

Raiders remove four OL from reserve/COVID-19 list

  Raiders remove four OL from reserve/COVID-19 list The Raiders removed offensive linemen Kolton Miller, Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson from their reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. The team had placed its other four starting O-linemen on the list because they were deemed high-risk close contacts of Trent Brown, who tested positive for the coronavirus this week. Brown will miss Sunday’s game, but his blocking mates are on track to play. However, they will not be officially cleared to do so until their Saturday coronavirus tests come back clean, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com notes. The team will obtain that information Sunday.

Everson Griffen (born December 22, 1987) is an American football defensive end for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL).

Winners of two consecutive games, the Lions head into their Week 8 outing against the Indianapolis Colts with a 3-3 record. These two wins have pretty much saved head coach Matt Patricia’s job. The same can be said for general manager Bob Quinn.

Does this suggest the Lions will be even more active heading into the Nov. 3 NFL trade deadline? That seems to be a reasonable assumption.

Griffen, 32, averaged 21 quarterback hits and nine sacks from 2012-19 with the division-rival Vikings. He’ll join a Lions squad that has registered a mere eight sacks in six games this season.
