New York Jets coach Todd Bowles has been hospitalized with what the team says is an ”undisclosed illness,” and he did not travel for the game at New England on Saturday. In a statement posted Friday on the team’s website, the Jets say Bowles is in stable condition, but it is uncertain if he will eventually join the team in time for the game. If Bowles is unavailable to coach, assistant head coach Mike Caldwell will fill in against the Patriots.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will not play Saturday at Green Bay because of knee and groin injuries. If Peterson is unable to play in the season finale against Chicago, there is a chance he will have played his last game as a Viking. The 31-year-old is due to make $18 million next season and would likely have to take a significant pay cut to remain in Minnesota.
