The Dallas Cowboys began their practice week ahead of Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots matchup with four offensive linemen on the injury report.

Only guard/tackle Chuma Edoga practiced, and he was limited with an elbow injury.

Center Tyler Biadasz (hamstring), tackle Tyron Smith (knee) and guard Zack Martin (ankle) missed Wednesday’s practice. Those three also missed the Week 3 contest on Sunday, a surprising 28-16 loss to Arizona. Tyron Smith was active for the game but wasn’t expected to play. Smith said he felt better and is continuing to rehab.

On Wednesday, the Cowboys signed center Billy Price to the practice squad, raising some questions about whether Biadasz can return against the Pats.

PANTHERS: Carolina rookie quarterback Bryce Young is trending toward playing on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings barring any setbacks, according to Coach Frank Reich.

Young was a full participant at practice on Wednesday. The No. 1 overall pick missed last Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with an ankle injury.


“The big thing right now is to see how he responds (Thursday) because it was good work today,” Reich said after practice. “Just have to make sure there’s no major setbacks, no flareups. But if he stays on track, then I think things are headed in the right direction.”

Young did not have a noticeable limp during the 20 minutes of practice that were open to reporters.

BROWNS: Quarterback Deshaun Watson is dealing with a sore right throwing shoulder but is expected to play Sunday when Cleveland hosts the Baltimore Ravens.

Watson, who is coming off his best game since signing with the Browns, didn’t throw during the portion of practice open to reporters on Wednesday. The 28-year-old stood behind rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson during drills and did mental reps.

Watson will be listed as “limited” on Cleveland’s injury report. A team spokesman confirmed Watson is resting his shoulder after taking several hard hits in Sunday’s 27-3 win over the Tennessee Titans. Watson completed 27 of 33 passes for 289 yards and two touchdowns.

COLTS: Indianapolis quarterback Anthony Richardson was back on the practice field Wednesday.


Whether he starts Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams is still to be determined.

Coach Shane Steichen told reporters the highly touted rookie would take all the snaps with Indy’s starting offense, clearing another hurdle in the concussion protocol before reclaiming his starting job.

“They’re still in the protocol still but they’re going to practice today,” Steichen said, referring to Richardson and three-time Pro Bowl center Ryan Kelly, who both missed last weekend’s 22-19 overtime victory at Baltimore.

JAGUARS: Jacksonville receiver Zay Jones is a long shot to play against Atlanta at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday, the team said Wednesday.

Coach Doug Pederson said Jones, who sprained his right knee two weeks ago against Kansas City and was inactive for last week’s game against Houston, will make the trip across the pond. Jones has five receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown this season.

“We’re going to see how he works this week,” Pederson said. “Probably a long shot for the game, but we will see where he’s what. He’s progressing very nice.”
