Adam Schefter of…

Osweiler: J.J. Watt absence changes nothing for offense

With Texans defensive end J.J. Watt on injured reserve and gone for at least eight weeks, the obvious reaction has become that the team’s offense needs to do more.

Vontaze Burfict raring to go on Thursday night

Bengals cornerback Adam Jones said after last Sunday’s loss to the Broncos that part of the reason that the team is not panicking about a 1-2 start is that tight end Tyler Eifert and linebacker Vontaze Burfict are returning to the lineup. It looks like the wait for Eifert will extend at least another week…
