The Carolina Panthers are the only undefeated team remaining in the NFL following the New England Patriots’ loss to the Denver Broncos last week. Carolina will try to keep its winning streak alive against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Check out the latest NFL news and rumors below.
• Patriots announced that tight end Rob Gronkowski sustained a bone bruise to his right knee in his team’s loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. He will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis, and there is no official timetable for his return.
• Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told 93.7 The Fan that he expects to play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. Roethlisberger sustained a concussion in the Steelers’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks last weekend.
