The Rams and the Cardinals will kick off Week 5 tonight on the NFL Network on Thursday Night Football, and Rams starting RB Steven Jackson (groin) is listed as questionable for tonight’s matchup.

 

Bills DE Mario Williams is blaming his subpar 2012 performance on a wrist injury he’s suffering through. The $100-million man has just nine tackles and 1.5 sacks in his first four games as he’s played with a cast on the injured wrist that he says is limiting his ability to shed blocks.

 

Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) has been officially ruled out for Sunday vs. the Vikings.

 

Vikings QB Christian Ponder was limited in Wednesday’s practice with a knee issue.

 

The UFL is already teetering on the brink of financial implosion.

 

The Titans are unsure of Kenny Britt‘s (ankle) Week 5 status after he didn’t participate in team drills Wednesday.

 

Bills DT Kyle Williams was fined $15,000 for his low hit on Pats QB Tom Brady.

 

Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, and he now believes he will make his 2012 debut against the Eagles.
