QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) wasn't on the outside field with teammates during the portion of practice open to the media. Colt McCoy worked in his place.

Rookie TE Dalton Keene (knee) has had his clock started on his return from injured reserve on Wednesday. That could be a welcome addition for a Patriots offense that ranks last in the NFL in tight-end production.

Playing Baltimore next Tuesday, the Cowboys will watch today's game between the Steelers and Ravens by position groups at The Star today after going through a lighter-than-normal Wednesday practice. Mike McCarthy believes there will be a benefit from watching the opponent live, getting a feel for scheme and personnel. On Thursday, the Cowboys will virtually take part in a memorial service for strength and conditioning coordinator Markus Paul, who passed away last week.

Jets injury update: RT George Fant (knee/ankle) is not practicing. It looks like he will miss his second straight game. S Bradley McDougald (shoulder surgery), currently on injured reserve, is not returning "anytime soon," per Adam Gase. There's less than two weeks remaining in the 21-day window with which they must activate him to the active roster. The timetable suggests he's done for the season.

Jets LG Alex Lewis, who was benched on Sunday for an undisclosed, non-injury-related reason, is not practicing today. Adam Gase declined to say whether Lewis will be available to play on Sunday. "I can't answer that," Gase said. "I don't have an update for you." Lewis is participating in team activities, such as virtual meetings, Gase said. On Monday, Lewis told ESPN there's "no issue at all" and that's he "shooting" to play.

Aaron Rodgers needs 3 more touchdown passes to become the 7th player in NFL history with 400. He will be the fastest QB to reach 400. He's played in 192 career games. Drew Brees was the previous fastest to 400, doing it in his 205th game. Peyton Manning was next, doing it in his 209th game.

The Patriots have been outscored 56-21 in the first quarter this season, and Bill Belichick was asked what he might be able to work on in practice to improve it. Belichick, in an engaging mood, said the Patriots have been working on it every day and "Honestly, if I had the answer, I would have done it 10 weeks ago." At the end of his answer, Belichick joked to a reporter: "Thanks for pointing that out, I appreciate it."

The Giants plan for Alex Tanney appears to be as a remote/just-in-case QB, if not immediately then next week or so. This after seeing what happened last week with the Broncos. Joe Judge said the other day the Giants (like most teams) had that discussion recently after seeing what was going on around the league.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Other roster moves: OT Matt Peart, WR Dante Pettis and TE Kaden Smith activated off reserve/COVID-19 list. WR Derrick Dillon and TE Nate Wieting cut from practice squad. DB Montre Hartage and P Ryan Santoso waived but likely to land on practice squad if they clear waiver.

OLB Kyler Fackrell placed on IR with a calf injury. Means he misses at least three games. Leaves the Giants extremely thin at the position with Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines also on IR. Possible Jabaal Sheard and Carter Coughlin/Cam Brown start Sunday in Seattle.

The Cowboys will face a quick turnaround between the Baltimore and Cincinnati road games. They likely will return from Baltimore at 3 a.m. Dec. 9 and be back on a plane at 2 p.m. CT on Dec. 12 to go to Cincinnati. “It's 2020,” center Joe Looney said. “I mean what is normal right now in 2020? I think we all are rolling with the punches, just making sure we go out there and put the best ball out there trying to win the game. At the end of the day that's what it boils down to.”

Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle that the Seahawks are awaiting MRI results on Carlos Dunlap's foot, which he hurt Monday night. "He's got a sore foot," Carroll said. "We don't know what it is. It's something on the bottom of his foot." Dunlap played only 38 defensive snaps against Philadelphia, third among Seattle defensive ends behind Benson Mayowa (40) and Rasheem Green (39). Mayowa and rookie Alton Robinson (10) would likely play more if Dunlap has to miss time as they are all Leo ends.

Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle that he felt like Chris Carson made more of an impact Monday night than his numbers suggest: eight carries for 41 yards and a touchdown and two catches for 18 yards. The Seahawks leaned more on Carlos Hyde (17 touches, 29 yards, 41 snaps) with Carson (25 snaps) playing for the first time since Week 7. "He just looked terrific," Carroll said. "I'm hoping that he comes out of the game feeling alright, didn't get banged up much and can keep doing it next week."

While the Ravens are set to get back two RBs from the Covid-19 list for the Steelers-Ravens game after its third postponement, the Steelers will get back another member of their organization. Steelers QBs coach Matt Canada (illness) has been cleared to return to the building, per spokesman Burt Lauten. He will coach tomorrow afternoon vs. the Ravens. The coaching staff, though, is still short handed with Special Teams coordinator Danny Smith (illness) out.

Jerry Jones has nothing but fond memories of Dez Bryant, who will play against the Cowboys next week for the Ravens. “Dez is an eternal light of positiveness for our game,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. I couldn't be happier to see him on the field. Now I'll be worried because I know how that rascal can go up and get a ball.” Bryant is the Cowboys' all-time leader in touchdown catches and was released by the club after the 2017 season.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Jerry Jones' reaction to a team, like Denver having to play a practice-squad receiver at quarterback? Too bad. “We've been schooled, these teams have been schooled that you have really better pay attention to your protocols. You better manage, don't just give it lip service, roll your eyes back, say, ‘That happened to them. It doesn't happen to me,'” he said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

The four NFC East teams rate among the top seven most favorable matchups an opposing D/ST can face this season.

Jamal Adams had another sack Monday night to give him a team-high 6.5 in only seven games this season. That ties the career-high he set with the Jets last year and, with five games left, it gives Adams a chance to break the NFL record for most sacks in a season by a defensive back since sacks became an official stat in 1982. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Adrian Wilson has the record with 8.0 in 2005. Adams' 18.5 career sacks are most by a DB in his first four seasons since 1982.

ESPN's win probability model leaned toward going for it on the Eagles' 4th-and-4, as Doug Pederson did, with 8:40 left in the game. WP go: 7.6% WP kick: 7.0% One thing to remember: if you are down 8 points, you might be down one score. But you also might be down two scores. And that's just to get to a tie.

DK Metcalf had 118 receiving yards in the first half. Per ESPN Stats & Info, it's the second time this season he's had 100 receiving yards by halftime (Week 8 vs. the 49ers). Davante Adams is the only other player this season with multiple 100-yard receiving games in the first half. Metcalf now has five 100-yard receiving games this year, one shy of Steve Largent's single-season franchise record from 1979. He's the first Seahawks with five such games in one season since 2004 (Darrell Jackson).

The Seahawks' halftime lead over Philadelphia is 14-6, but it should be bigger. Seattle forced three-and-outs on the Eagles' first five possessions and might have gotten off the field on their final drive, which ended in a touchdown, had officials not missed a grounding penalty. The Seahawks are running the ball in Chris Carson's return but they've given Carlos Hyde plenty of touches with Carson playing for the first time in over a month. DK Metcalf is getting the better of Darius Slay so far.

Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer 

A little life for Carson Wentz and the offense to close what was otherwise a miserable first half. The Eagles managed 15 yards passing to 59 rushing. A couple defensive stands early kept it close. Seattle up 14-6.

"I think that's what we have to be to be successful right now - a tough, physical team. It comes in so many different ways. Returning kicks. The goal-line stand by the defense...A lot of guys showing toughness. That's kind of going to be our recipe here." - center David Andrews
