Jones has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against Dallas.

Here’s the team’s full injury report for Week 11.

Without Jones in the lineup, expect the Cowboys to try to exploit Atlanta’s weakness at linebacker by force-feeding Ezekiel Elliott even more than normal.

The Falcons run defense has been inconsistent at best since Jones went down, and sometimes downright terrible. While they were relatively able to contain both Saquon Barkley and Adrian Peterson, they’ve also been dominated by Nick Chubb, James Conner and Giovani Bernard]]> 5362083 Fri, 16 Nov 2018 15:21:01 EDT Falcons Wire
<![CDATA[Trey Quinn jokes about Adrian Peterson's age: 'He's 48 or whatever']]> Trey Quinn is back from his ankle injury and he’s already making jokes.

The rookie receiver was recently asked by reporters about maturing quickly in the NFL. Quinn, who will be turning 23 in early December, responded with an eloquent answer about how his teammates have helped him mature. He also took the opportunity to poke fun of Adrian Peterson’s age.

Yo — Trey Quinn is brave for calling out the legend like that

<![CDATA[Texans vs. Washington: Point spread, over/under for Week 11]]>
Houston is on a six-game winning streak after starting the season with a foreboding 0-3 record. Quarterback Deshaun Watson has not thrown an interception in the past three games, and the bye week has helped the Texans get healthier. Newly acquired receiver Demaryius Thomas from the Denver Broncos cut his bye week short to spend more time integrating in the Houston offense.

Washington’s offense features an Over the Hill Gang for a new generation with quarterback Alex Smith and running back Adrian Peterson, who is enjoying a renaissance season with Washington. In order to stay ahead of the rest of the pack in the NFC East, Washington will need the win as they have a Thanksgiving showdown with Dallas in Week 12]]> 5361334 Thu, 15 Nov 2018 18:24:01 EDT Texans Wire
<![CDATA[Adrian Peterson says he's fully recovered from various injuries]]> Adrian Peterson popped up on the injury report with various problems but played through the issues.

Still, it was easy to think the 33-year-old running back was starting to slow.

Or not. Per the man himself in an interview with ESPN’s John Keim, Peterson is healing up some of those problems:

“I’m feeling good. Last week I actually started feeling all the way healthy. My shoulder, I’m back to bench pressing. I haven’t did that in three weeks. I’m back to the normal things I was able to do. The ankle is feeling good. The body feels refreshed. It was a grind the first eight weeks and here now, as I stand in front of you guys, my body is feeling amazing.]]> 5361005 Thu, 15 Nov 2018 10:42:02 EDT Redskins Wire

<![CDATA[Bill O'Brien explains why RB Adrian Peterson isn't with Texans]]> Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue were up to snuff.

Blue has been a reliable bulky downhill rusher for the Texans in recent years, but hardly a great playmaker. While Miller has been very up and down in his form since arriving from Miami, with injuries and a lack of creativity in his rushing hampering his progress.

This raised the question: Should this playoff caliber team take a chance on one of the best running backs to have played the game in Adrian Peterson? The 33-year old is a former MVP and will certainly end up in the Hall of Fame, but with knee injuries having all but halted his production in recent years, many questioned whether this Palestine, Texas, native still had anything to give]]> 5359528 Tue, 13 Nov 2018 15:15:01 EDT Texans Wire
<![CDATA[Texans coach Bill O'Brien wary of Washington RB Adrian Peterson]]> Adrian Peterson.

The veteran is enjoying something of a rebirth on Jay Gruden’s team since joining this off-season. The former Minnesota Viking has racked up 672 rushing yards in nine games this season, placing him fifth among all NFL rushers this season]]> 5359417 Tue, 13 Nov 2018 13:09:01 EDT Texans Wire
<![CDATA[Texans S Tyrann Mathieu has plenty respect for Washington RB Adrian Peterson]]> Tyrann Mathieu spent his first five seasons with the Arizona Cardinals before signing a one-year, $7 million contract last offseason. During his final season, Matheiu was able to spend time with running back Adrian Peterson.

On Sunday, the two will meet each other again, this time on different sidelines.

“Obviously, he’s a great running back,” Matheiu said Monday. “I think just his name alone speaks for itself. Obviously, I think what he’s been able to do this season, really going into Washington and trying to give those guys an identity as far as running the football with their running back going down early in the year. He’s doing a great job for those guys and we’ll have a big challenge Sunday.]]> 5359264 Tue, 13 Nov 2018 9:36:02 EDT Texans Wire

We knew this after a few weeks, where the entire offense hinged on 33-year-old Adrian Peterson while the rest of the league leaned on the passing game.

But this is even better — the Redskins still haven’t experienced a lead change:

#Redskins have led the entire game in all 6 of their wins. They've trailed the entire game in all 3 of their losses. They have never experienced a lead change through 10 weeks.
