The Chicago Bears doubled up the Washington Commanders, 40-20, to begin Week 5 of the NFL season on “Thursday Night Football.” Chase Claypool was ruled out before the game after Bears general manager Ryan Poles said the wide receiver’s time in Chicago was over. Sure enough, Claypool is now a member of the Miami Dolphins after a Friday trade.
Week 5 will see another game in London with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills playing at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the likely return of Von Miller.
Miller told reporters this week that there is a “94.5 percent” chance that he will make his season debut in London. He has missed the first four games of the season as he’s been working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last November.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott has already ruled out Greg Rousseau with a foot injury.
In other returns, the Los Angeles Rams expect Cooper Kupp to be back as they face the Philadelphia Eagles. A hamstring injury kept the wide receiver out this season but he returned to practice on Thursday.
One person whose return is unclear is Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, who has been listed as questionable after a week of full participation in practice. The Colts will wait until Saturday to make a decision on his availability after seeing how he feels, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Taylor spent the first four weeks of the season on the physically unable to perform list with an ankle injury amid a contract dispute with Indianapolis.
