Some assorted notes from around the NFL as we wrap up the weekend…
- According to CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora (via Twitter), the Eagles won’t get a 2016 fourth-rounder from the Rams if Sam Bradford plays 50-percent of his team’s snaps. Philadelphia will still have to part with a second-round pick, however.
- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn’t have the highest praise for quarterback Matt Cassel following his team’s loss to the Giants. “If you’re asking me if I’m confident that Cassel can help us win several of the next ballgames, I don’t know that,” Jones said (via The Washington Post’s Mark Maske on Twitter). With Tony Romo still about a month away from returning, it’s uncertain if Cassel will stick around in Dallas.
- Speaking of Romo, Jones told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the quarterback would be back for the Cowboys‘ Week 10 matchup against the Buccaneers (Twitter link). Of course, as Schefter notes, Romo isn’t eligible to return until Week 11, but the owner’s optimism is certainly worth noting.
- Vikings running back Adrian Peterson said his illness was due to a shrimp allergy, not chewing tobacco, writes ESPN.com’s Ben Goessling. Peterson was downgraded to questionable Saturday evening, but he suited up for Sunday’s victory over the Lions.
