The Minnesota Vikings have designated Pro Bowl receiver Adam Thielen as questionable for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. But indications are strong that Thielen will start, despite a lower back injury that cost him one day of practice this week and limited him for two others.
However, the NFL is attempting to put the screws on Judge Amos Mazzant (Eastern District of Texas) to get a ruling on whether or not Elliott will be allowed to continue playing. In fact, the league asked the Jon Merrill Womens Jersey judge to rule by Thursday afternoon on whether or not to it would grant the league’s Emergency Motion to Stay Injunction Pending Appeal, which the league filed on September 11.

The non-legalese version of that: the judge ruled in Elliott’s favor to allow him to keep playing but still had to decide if he would grant an injunction for Elliott to play for the entire season. The NFL is asking him not to grant that and to remove the temporary injunction. The NFL also filed an appeal with the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and is asking the judge to rule by Thursday or it will ask the Court of Appeals to tell Elliott he has to stop playing immediately.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S HOPE! Jacksonville made it to the playoffs this year! Last week, fiction became fact when comedian Joe Mande, one of the show’s producers, and Jacinto went to the Wild Card Game in Jacksonville and watched the Jags beat the Bills. While Jason might not be alive to see his team advance in the playoffs, at least his creators are.
Here, he talks about what the show will do if Jacksonville wins the Super Bowl, what it was like to eat a cheeseburger with bright blue buns at a football game in Florida, and how perfect it is that The Good Place only follows Blake Bortles and the Jaguars on Twitter.
Everyone suspects the Broncos are going to make an addition at quarterback, but it’s not yet clear whether their decision will dramatically move the needle. The Broncos’ defense hasn’t declined as much as the raw totals suggest; it fell from fourth to 22nd in points allowed but was still the 10th-best defense by DVOA after leading the league in 2016. But Denver could cut Aqib Talib. And it is feeling the effects of what look to be middling drafts in 2015 and 2016.
