Injuries: DeMarco Murray a long shot to play Sunday
While it might bring him some midsection pain, the rest of Jacksonville can breathe easy — Cam Robinson will play in the playoffs.
Here are other injuries we’re monitoring Monday:
1. Oakland Raiders guard Vadal Alexander left in the first half against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night to be evaluated for a concussion and didn’t return.
6. Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray is considered a long shot to play Sunday against the Jaguars because of an apparent LCL sprain, according to Rapoport.
7. Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said the team will have a better idea of running back Melvin Gordon’s availability in the coming days. Gordon suffered an ankle injury during the fourth quarter Sunday and did not return versus the New York Jets.
8. Buffalo Bills running back Travaris Cadet is out for the season with a dislocated ankle and will have surgery Wednesday morning, Rapoport reported.
If so, the NFL waves farewell to one of its finest figures. With a career spanning 59 years as a Hall of Fame player and coach, LeBeau still ranks 10th all-time in interceptions following a stellar 14-year run as a defensive back with the Lions.
Beginning his coaching career in 1973, LeBeau served as a long-time coordinator with the Bengals (1984-1999) before taking over as Cincinnati’s head coach from 2000-2002. From there, he won a pair of Super Bowls as Pittsburgh’s masterful defensive play-caller (2004-2014) before spending the past three seasons with Tennessee.
As the innovator of the zone blitz defense, LeBeau has authored some of the league’s nastiest and unpredictable schemes. Quarterbacks won’t miss him, but if this is truly the end, LeBeau’s stamp on the game is enduring.
