Roundup: Jets QB Sam Darnold cleared to do cardio

The Philadelphia Eagles are hoping to haveAlshon Jeffery back on the field this week.

Coach Doug Pederson told reporters he's "hoping" the wideout will play on Thursday against the Green Bay Packers.

Jeffery left Week 2's game with a calf injury and missed practice all last week.

The Eagles listed him as limited in practice today, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported. There wasn't a practice so it's basically a projection, he added.

Cornerback Ronald Darby, who injured his hamstring on Sunday, is expected to miss some time following his MRI, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed. He'll likely miss a few games, Rapoport added.

Here are other injuries we're tracking on Monday:

  1. The Chicago Bears have announced the following inactives for Monday night's game: DB Kevin Toliver II, DB Sherrick McManis, RB Kerrith Whyte Jr., LB Josh Woods, OL Bobby Massie, W Riley Ridley and DL Bilal Nichols.

Massie is dealing with vertigo, Garafolo reported, per sources informed. It's unclear when it popped up today, Garafolo added.

Kicker Eddy Pineiro, who was questionable with a knee injury, is slated to play.

Receiver Taylor Gabriel suffered a concussion in the third quarter and was ruled out. Bears defensive tackle Akiem Hicks exited with a right knee injury in the fourth quarter. Bears coach Matt Nagy said of Hicks after the game, "Hopefully he'll be OK."

The Washington Redskins have announced the following inactives for Monday night's game: QB Colt McCoy, CB Quinton Dunbar, LB Cassanova McKinzy, C Ross Pierschbacher, G Wes Martin, DL T.Y. McGill and TE Jordan Reed.

  1. New York Jets coach Adam Gase said quarterback Sam Darnold (mono) has not been medically cleared yet but can start doing cardio. Darnold went through tests Monday and will undergo further testing, per Gase. The QB said per the team's site that the next step is for his spleen enlargement to go down. He's seen progress but it's not quite where it needs to be. Darnold will visit with doctors next Monday.

Linebacker C.J. Mosley (groin), defensive lineman Quinnen Williams (ankle) and receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring/knee) are all trending in the right direction for the Eagles game, added Gase.

  1. Indianapolis Colts safety Malik Hooker is set to undergo surgery Tuesday to trim his meniscus and likely will miss four to six weeks, Rapoport reported. Coach Frank Reich told reporters during a conference call Monday that Hooker will "miss a little bit of time" but it does not appear he will be placed on injured reserve at this time.

In other Colts injury news, Reich said that T.Y. Hilton aggravated his quad injury against the Falcons. "We'll see how he progresses this week," Reich said.
