New York Jets: DT Josh Evans, who is currently serving a suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, could be available to play as soon as Nov. 9 against Oakland. The New York Times reports the Jets could know by the end of the month if the league will reinstate the repeat offender. Evans was the team's best interior lineman last year and his presence would be a welcomed addition to a defensive line that finally looks like it might be playing up to its potential.
Washington Redskins: G Dave Fiore is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery today on his right knee. Fiore said he hopes to return to the Redskins' lineup for their Nov. 2 game at Dallas. "We're trying to make it a situation where it's a little more functional and I can play in a couple weeks," Fiore told the Washington Post. "There's been a lot of deliberation over this, a lot of different discussions. It was really a close call over whether to wait it out and try other medications or get the 'scope. But if we waited and the medication didn't work and I had to have the 'scope three weeks from now, we would have been that much further down the road." Because the Redskins have a bye next week, Fiore could miss only one game before returning.
