Byron Marshall, RB, Washington Redskins: Although initially declared questionable to return because of a hamstring injury, he was subsequently downgraded to doubtful, then to out.
With just 61 yards needed for a second 1,000-yard season, he knows those yards won’t come easy against the NFL’s top-ranked rush defense.
“They have one of the best defensive lines and linemen (Fletcher Cox) in the league,” Gurley told reporters Thursday. “(Cox) is a great player, pass rusher and run stopper. Their linebackers are great. They’ve just been playing good ball this year.
“There was still time left on the clock, so of course we’re taught to play until the clock hits triple-zeroes, and that’s exactly what we was doing, basically,” Clark said. “We don’t take plays off, so if we see an opportunity to go and get the ball back, that’s basically what we was doing. It turned into a lot more than what we hoped for, but at the end of the day, we’ve got each other’s back, and that’s what it comes down to: who’s got each other’s back, and we’ve got ours.”
The Bills — specifically head coach Sean McDermott — came to his senses last week by reversing his previous move and starting Tyrod Taylor at quarterback against the Chiefs. Later Sunday, the Jaguars’ loss at Arizona allowed the Titans to tie them for first place in their division.
