Giants' Nate Solder: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pat Shurmur said Thursday that he's optimistic Solder (concussion) will clear the league's protocol for head injuries this week, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

If he indeed manages to receive full clearance, Solder will draw his usual start at left tackle during Sunday's tilt against the Bears.

Patriots LT Nate Solder: 'I would love to stay'
by Marty Gitlin |

Patriots left tackle Nate Solder is hoping to stick around despite being in the final season of his rookie contract.

"I would love to stay," he told the Boston Herald. "...Who knows what will happen? My approach with that, too, is just to do the best I can while I'm here."

Solder is set to earn a guaranteed $7.438 million in 2015. The team could work out an extension with him to lessen a cap hit or prevent him from becoming a free agent in March. The Patriots did draft offensive linemen over the weekend, but none play his position.
