The NFL announced a change to its injury reports, as the “probable” label is no longer in effect, tweets Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. As the league explains in its memo, approximately 95% of the players listed as “probable” ended up playing in that week’s games, rendering it essentially irrelevant. No replacement is in store for the “probable” tag, as teams will rely solely on “questionable,” “doubtful,” and “out.”
More from around the league:
- Safety Bacarri Rambo is back to full health and is drawing attention from several teams as a free agent, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com tweets. A sixth-round pick in 2013, Rambo has so far played with the Redskins and Bills.
- Five teams have shown interest in one of Rambo’s ex-teammates and fellow free agents, former Bills running back Karlos Williams, Sal Capaccio of WGR tweets. That list of teams includes the Jets, who hosted Williams on a visit Tuesday.
- Henry Melton‘s one-year deal with the Broncos is for $760K and doesn’t include any guaranteed money, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com tweets. His pact counts for $600K against the Broncos’ cap.
- The Texans did not have interest in former Patriots center Bryan Stork, now with the Redskins, when they thought he was about to hit free agency, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle tweets. That’s a little bit surprising given the high-ankle sprain recently suffered by rookie center Nick Martin, who was set to start. For now, Toledo product Greg Mancz is slated to take that role. Mancz spent his rookie season on IR with a knee injury that required surgery. Reviews on him have been positive, and Houston apparently prefers him to Stork, a former starter for the Pats.
