Los Angeles Chargers left tackle Russell Okung, who attended the recent NFL owners-players meetings in New York, is not pleased with the league’s efforts on social justice reform.
Josh Doctson, WR, Washington Redskins (13.3 percent): A shifting in the winds in Washington at wide receiver? Perhaps, as Doctson seemingly overtook a good chunk of the snaps that Terrelle Pryor Sr. had previously handled. Doctson logged 54 of 64 snaps on Monday night, with Pryor playing just 30.
In the midst of one of his best performances of the season, Flacco was hit high by Kiko Alonso while sliding at the end of an impromptu run near the end of the second quarter. Flacco’s helmet flew off his head, and the 10-year quarterback appeared wobbly as he struggled to his feet.
Flacco was initially placed in concussion protocol, and by halftime was ruled out.
“Joe had a concussion and a cut ear,” coach John Harbaugh said. “They were stitching it up without any anesthesia, so he’s a tough dude. That’s as much as I know.”
The coach hopes that tough dude is ready to play on Nov. 5, when Baltimore faces Tennessee on the road.
Miami, meanwhile, was looking for so much more from Moore in his first start of the year. Subbing for the injured Cutler (ribs), Moore went 25 for 44 for 176 yards.
If Cutler is healthy on Nov. 5, he will likely start against Oakland.
