    Miami Dolphins

    Dolphins name Tua Tagovailoa as starting quarterback beginning in Week 8

    The Dolphins will be on bye in Week 7, but the organization announced this morning that Tagovailoa will be the team’s starting quarterback for their Week 8 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams and moving forward. The timing of the decision is so peculiar that the quarterback change following the bye week had to be Miami’s original plan going into the season, especially with Ryan Fitzpatrick leading them to a 3-3 record and playing extremely well through six games. This means that Fitzpatrick now is a backup quarterback once again for the remainder of the 2020 season barring a trade to a quarterback-needy team prior to the NFL trade deadline in two weeks.

    San Francisco 49ers

    Raheem Mostert (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve

    Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed with reporters on a Zoom conference call Monday that Mostert has a high ankle sprain and will likely be placed on injured reserve in the coming days, effectively ruling him out for Sunday’s Week 7 matchup against the New England Patriots and the following two weeks. Shanahan also reiterated that Tevin Coleman isn’t expected to return any time soon, so Jerick McKinnon, Jeff Wilson Jr., and JaMycal Hasty are set to be the Niners backfield for the foreseeable future. Hasty actually out-carried McKinnon 9-6 in this past Sunday night’s win over the Los Angeles Rams, but with Wilson inactive for that contest, it’ll be tough gauge what Hasty’s role will be moving forward, especially since McKinnon handled over 92% of the running back snaps the last time Mostert and Coleman were both sidelined.

    Titans activate Corey Davis from Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday

    The Titans announced that they have activated Davis from the Reserve/COVID-19 listed, and he is set to return to practice this week, putting him on track to be ready for this Sunday’s Week 7 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers after being sidelined for nearly two weeks. Davis won’t be in a position to receive the same market share of targets he was seeing earlier in the season with A.J. Brown now back in the mix following his injury absence, but with Jonnu Smith suffering an ankle sprain in this past Sunday’s win over the Houston Texans, there’s no guarantee he’ll be able to suit up this coming weekend. If Smith does end up inactive, it would reopen extra opportunities in the passing game for Davis, Anthony Firkser, and the other ancillary Titans’ players on offense.

    Jeff Wilson, Dante Pettis inactive Sunday

    Jeff Wilson and Dante Pettis are both inactive. The 49ers will have Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon as their top RBs, with FB Kyle Juszczyk possibly getting some work. Dante Pettis being inactive isn’t surprising, as he hasn’t had a real role in the offense since Week 1.

    Leonard Fournette inactive Sunday

    Early reports Sunday indicated Fournette would play, but he is officially inactive. This should set Ronald Jones up once again in a great spot. Even if LeSean McCoy takes on a slightly larger role, Jones should be the clear top back here, as he has been the past two weeks.

    Breshad Perriman is active for the first time since Week 2, but returns to a depleted Jets’ offense led by QB Joe Flacco. The Jets also released Le’Veon Bell this past week, taking away one of their few offensive weapons. The Jets are likely to have a tough day Sunday against the Dolphins.

    Curtis Samuel inactive Sunday

    Samuel is inactive Sunday, a big loss for the Panthers’ offense. Not only was Samuel consistently involved in the passing game, he had been getting multiple rush attempts each game since CMC went out. His absence will give more touches to the entire offense, and his rush attempts could be returned back to the RBs, or lead to a slight increase in passing. Either way, RB Mike Davis is in position for another huge day in both the passing and running game.
