Jay Gruden calls RG III injury a 'fluke'

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden knows Robert Griffin III's track record in the NFL when it comes to injuries. And it hasn't been good for the third-year quarterback. He has now exited games with: a concussion, a knee injury, another knee injury and a dislocated ankle. All that in 31 career games. But Gruden called these injuries unfortunate. "The more injuries mount on him, it just becomes more of an issue I guess from a lot of people that think his durability is in question, but this is an unfortunate injury," Gruden said.

Ryan hopeful Decker can play next Monday

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Eric Decker's hamstring injury is a concern, but New York Jets coach Rex Ryan expressed optimism that the wide receiver could be back on the field for next Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears. “We don’t know right now, we’ll see,” Ryan said. “Hopefully he’ll be ready to roll on Monday.” Decker had four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown Sunday at Green Bay, but was unable to play in a crucial -- and scoreless -- fourth quarter.

Pack surprised by Jets' onside kick reaction

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy wasn't necessarily accusing the New York Jets of any funny business, but he expressed surprise that they were not surprised by his surprise onside kick in Sunday's game. McCarthy made the call to try the onside kick with 3:12 left in the second quarter after a field goal cut the Jets' lead to 21-9. Mason Crosby popped the ball up, but the Jets were ready for it and easily recovered. "I felt like they were in our huddle, frankly," McCarthy said Monday.

DeAngelo Williams ready to return

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers expect all-time leading rusher DeAngelo Williams to return to practice on Wednesday and be ready for Sunday night's game against Pittsburgh. Williams missed Sunday's 24-7 victory against Detroit that improved Carolina to 2-0 with a thigh injury that flared up after Wednesday's practice.

Packers injury update: Hyde thinks he's OK

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers have lost one of their core special-teams players, backup linebacker Andy Mulumba, to a knee injury, but starting safety Micah Hyde appears to have avoided a major injury. Both were injured in Sunday's win over the New York Jets. Hyde, who was injured at the end of a second-quarter punt return, said Monday that he has some swelling in his left knee but believes it was just a bruise. "I just took a little shot on the knee cap, nothing serious," he said.

Redskins hopeful to have DeSean Jackson

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson has a shot at playing against his former team Sunday in Philadelphia. But Redskins coach Jay Gruden said they likely won’t know for sure until later in the week. Jackson suffered a grade one sprain of his left shoulder and is day to day.
