The long-awaited debut of rookie first-round WR Odell Beckham Jr. appears to be getting closer. He has been out since mid-August due to a nagging hamstring injury but has practiced more and more leading up to this week's tilt with the Atlanta Falcons.

Will he finally take the field on Sunday?

"The truth was that Beckham impressed at practice on Wednesday, according to several players," wrote Conor Orr of NJ.com. "The coaching staff got a glimpse of the speedy wideout that has been a minor obsession since well before his combine workout in February.
It looks like Carson Palmer's plan for his ailing shoulder going forward will include more rehab, though it appears he has avoided the need for surgery at this time, according to Fox Sports' Mike Jurecki.

It wasn't too surprising that Eddie Lacy failed to explode out of the gate statistically this year, since the Green Bay Packers faced three of the NFL's top six rush defenses (SEA, NYJ, DET). However, Lacy couldn't get it going (17 rushes for 48 yards) against the 20th-ranked Chicago Bears in Week 4 and now sports a 3.0 YPC average.

It's been a bit perplexing why a New England Patriots offense that has had trouble getting their passing game in gear -- partly due to a receiver corps that can't create separation -- would leave arguably their best outside receiver (Aaron Dobson) inactive the past two weeks.

Georgia's star running back Todd Gurley is one of the best that college football has seen in recent years, but at a time when the NFL has seemingly devalued the running back position (none drafted in first round the past two years), does he really have a chance to be drafted in Round 1 in 2015?

Despite all the talk about the Philadelphia offense over the course of the first four weeks of the NFL season, individually the numbers are not there for guys like Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy. In the case of McCoy, who has averaged just 2.7 yards in 70 carries and has as many fumbles as touchdowns (1), the Eagles' offensive line has provided little room for him to run.

So why, then, may Week 5 be the week McCoy busts out?

The Chicago Bears couldn't figure out how to slow down Aaron Rodgers Sunday, as the quarterback threw four touchdowns, leading his Green Bay Packers to a 38-17 win in Chicago. They failed to generate any pressure on Rodgers, as they worked in zone coverage, while trying to get after the quarterback with four pass rushers.

No one in their right mind expected Nick Foles to match his 27:2 TD:INT ratio from last season. He currently sits at 6:4 in that department after throwing zero scores and two interceptions during Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Overall he has looked decent but not great.

When a franchise has key people performing well, it often leads to wins, but it also can lead to huge paydays that can sap cap space. Consider DeMarco Murray, who has racked up an NFL-best 534 yards and five touchdowns during the first four games of the final year of his rookie contract.
