Game status:— John Keim (@john_keim) November 17, 2023
DE James Smith-Williams (hamstring)
FB Alex Armah (hamstring)
RB Antonio Gibson (toe)
Was optimism earlier this week with Gibson; toe did not respond. Will work out pre-game. Not looking good.
The Commanders tried out DE Jordan Willis, per the wire. Former 3rd-round pick by the Bengals. Was most recently on the Saints’ practice squad.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) November 18, 2023

Giants offense averages about 160 yards & 11.8 points-per-game, both last in the NFL. Commanders D gives up 27.4 points-per-game (31st) and about 391 yards-per-game (29th). Rubber meets road Sunday. https://t.co/QS5I1RgPEg— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) November 17, 2023
Ron Rivera did not hold back today.— Scott Abraham (@Scott7news) November 17, 2023
He was asked if it has been difficult not to wonder about the future?
Rivera said, “No…f*** I’ve been through enough. The last three and a half years have not been easy. Anybody who thinks it’s been easy the hell with them.” pic.twitter.com/xdiUARacV1

Zac Taylor was ready to wrap the press conference until he defended Logan Wilson against a "reckless" national narrative that he's dirty for knocking out 3 Ravens pic.twitter.com/8C6rRKDlo1— Mike Petraglia (@Trags) November 17, 2023
Y'all gonna make it impossible to play defense dawg... https://t.co/WAIboVX7Cf— Jeremy Reaves (@JR1ERA) November 17, 2023
The interesting thing is that these sorts of tackles appear to be the outgrowth of the rugby/Seahawk tackling technique, which was instituted to try and minimize head contact.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) November 17, 2023
Reality is, you try and plug one hole, and another will spring free. It’s a violent game. https://t.co/1kR6NmoB7j
ESPN's Bart Scott claims #Bengals LB Logan Wilson made a "Dirty" play on his tackle against TE Mark Andrews, likely costing him the season.— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) November 17, 2023

The NFL may, in fact, ban the hip-drop tackle. But as of now, they are completely legal. https://t.co/w8msTTeZSF— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 17, 2023
One of the few times we do not agree. This is a result of the rules governing defenders and their attempts to take the crown of the helmet leading out of it. Wrapping a powerful runner up and attempting to bring him down without dropping your weight would result in defenders… https://t.co/dgq5OqrUXA pic.twitter.com/Y7XhCX4Ulp— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 17, 2023

Such a wild season with all these Starting QBs sustaining major injuries. Don’t remember a time where there were this many in one year. Not sure the NFL can do much more to protect them and I’m not sure what the solution is.— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 17, 2023
I'm not saying Zac Taylor is lying. But I am saying he has no incentive to tell the truth about this. https://t.co/WEGj2vTSbn— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) November 17, 2023
The NFL is investigating why the Bengals did not list QB Joe Burrow on their injury report when the team posted a picture of him wearing a device on his wrist Wednesday night and he appeared to be hampered by the injury early in the Thursday night game that he later left, the… pic.twitter.com/xba8URiWri— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 17, 2023
#Bengals QB Joe Burrow claims that the device we've seen him wearing on his wrist in the deleted video was to prevent his hand from swelling up due to altitude on the plane.pic.twitter.com/k4BsKVgUYxpic.twitter.com/Lg6oifZwYjhttps://t.co/3zaupVp5Jj— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) November 17, 2023
While not all of Joe Burrow's injuries have required surgery, his ailment list reminds us of a childhood classic.#PFN365's @ByJayMorrison examines Burrow's lengthy injury history ⬇️https://t.co/wxhD2MyCzV pic.twitter.com/Z6WPFJVuoO— Pro Football Network (@PFN365) November 18, 2023

It is wild that the NFL can’t find 60+ good QBs, where at least every team has a decent backup.— Michelle Magdziuk (@BallBlastEm) November 17, 2023
Or even 32 good QBs, where at least every team has a good starter.
It is crazy that only 15-20 people in the world are good at this particular job in any given year.
