• The Vikings are willing to wait until game time to determine whether running back Adrian Peterson plays Sunday against the Jaguars. He’s recovering from reconstructive surgery to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee. The Jaguars will be without starting outside linebacker Daryl Smith (groin injury).

• Texans coach Gary Kubiak said running back Arian Foster (sore knee) and linebackerBrooks Reed (sore hip) sat out of Friday’s practice and will be “game-time” decisions for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. “I expect to play on Sunday,” Foster said.

• Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals after being a limited participant in practice.

• The Panthers listed running back Jonathan Stewart (ankle) as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers. “We do feel pretty good about Jonathan after hearing the progress I was told today,” coach Ron Rivera said.

• Jets defensive tackle Sione Po’uha is questionable to play in Sunday’s game against the Bills, and not out, as coachRex Ryan initially announced.

• Titans defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Patriots after missing his third straight practice Friday with a sprained right knee.

• NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the Vikings applied to host either the 2018, ’19 or ’20 Super Bowls.

• The Browns plan to have an “appropriate recognition” at Sunday’s game for former owner Art Modell, who died Thursday at the age of 87. He remains a vilified figure in Cleveland for moving the Browns to Baltimore after the 1995 season.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
