Bills rookie WR Ray-Ray McCloud will not travel to Indianapolis and will not play Sunday against the Colts for a non-injury reason, the team announced Saturday.

The Jets could try to re-sign WR Terrelle Pryor in a couple of weeks, when his groin injury should be healed, but there's no guarantee they'll get him back. I spoke to Pryor on Thursday, and he didn't seem happy with his playing time. "Throw me the ball and I'll make it happen," he said. A team doesn't cut a $4.5 million receiver over a two-week injury unless it's willing to live without him. Clearly, the Jets are OK with the prospect of losing him. He's been a contributor when on the field, but he has battled injuries since he signed — a source of frustration for the organization. He's also a high-maintenance player, but this is more about the injury than his attitude.

WR Jawill Davis (concussion) is out. G Patrick Omameh (knee) and WR Russell Shepard (neck) are listed as questionable. The Giants will see how Omameh does overnight.

The Jaguars have placed rookie OL Will Richardson, Jr. on IR with a knee injury, creating the open roster spot for RB Carlos Hyde. Richardson was active for the first time this season last Sunday but did not play. He was the team's fourth-round pick.

Giants offensive line coach Hal Hunter sees Saquon Barkley as a "special guy." Last running back he's been around like that ... LaDainian Tomlinson. Hunter agrees with center Jon Greco's belief that Barkley can average 7.0 yards per carry if the line does their job. Barkley is averaging 5.2 ypc thorough his first six games.

Could Sam Darnold be affected by the weather on Sunday? The forecast says the temperature at kickoff will be a blustery 47 degrees in New Jersey. Darnold's coldest game was his first start at USC, a night game at Utah in 2016 — 45 degrees. (He played well, the team lost.) That was his only game under 50 degrees. The average temperature for his college starts: 71 degrees. Darnold was bundled up on Thursday, when the Jets practiced in chilly conditions. Look for the same against the Vikings.

With the Patriots tight against the salary cap, CB Stephon Gilmore's contract was tweaked to help provide needed space. Specifically, $4.95 million of Gilmore's base salary was turned into a fully guaranteed roster bonus (prorated over four years), which created $3.71 million in cap space in 2018. This gives the team some room at the trade deadline if it wants to make a move.

The Patriots' trip to Chicago to face the Bears on Sunday provided Bill Belichick a springboard to do something close to his heart: Teach history. Players relayed that Belichick went into depth Thursday on the history of Soldier Field, which included iconic old photographs that traced back to some of the earliest games played in the stadium, such as Army vs. Navy – watched by 110,000 spectators – on Nov. 27, 1926. On Friday, when Belichick was asked by reporters about his own memories of coaching at Soldier Field, he highlighted Walter Payton's first game, in 1975, when Belichick was just breaking into the NFL as a special assistant with the Baltimore Colts. "It's a great environment. It's a lot different now. Obviously, it's hard to even recognize Soldier Field as Soldier Field -- certainly from the inside," Belichick said, in reference to renovations from the early 2000s that still preserved some of the stadium's original columns on the outside. "It's a big, expansive structure like JFK [Stadium] in Philly or the [Los Angeles Memorial] Coliseum. You don't see those stadiums any more. It's a pretty special place."
