Through two games, 69 of Christian Kirk's 77 snaps have been from the slot, per Pro Football Focus. He leads the team in yards per catch with 16.9, which is seventh-highest in the NFL among receivers with at least eight catches.
Since the Cardinals signed free agent wide receiver A.J. Green this offseason to line up outside, the plan was the move Kirk inside, where he played in college at Texas A&M. He said he is questioning himself less and more focused on the task in front of him. Rookie Moore also plays on the inside and had a standout game in Week 2 while Kirk is in the final year of his rookie contract, the story said.
The Patriots initially had undrafted free agent kicker Nordin on their 53-man roster, but placed him on injured reserve with an abdominal injury with the hope he can return in November, the story said.
Both will have to miss at least three games. Taylor is dealing with a hamstring issue and Collins a shoulder. Mills will get the start at QB after coming on in relief. Mills is thrown to the fire early as it's a Thursday night game against the Panthers.
