The Latest on Week 4 in the NFL (all times EDT):2:45 p.m.The Jacksonville Jaguars have ruled out two starters for the rest of the day against the New York Jets, including running back Leonard Fournette.Fournette left the game with tightness in his right hamstring in the second quarter. He returned for a few plays, but was ruled out at halftime.Fournette missed the previous two games with the same injury, making his setback concerning.Center Brandon Linder also was ruled out at the break with a back injury.___2:44 p.m.The Buffalo Bills are having a miserable day at Lambeau Field.Mason Crosby kicked a 52-yard field goal as time expired in the first half to give the Green Bay Packers a 16-0 lead.The Bills look nothing like the team that beat the Vikings 27-6 on the road last week in Minnesota. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen is 5 of 19 for 58 yards and an interception late in the first half. He made an ill-timed pass under pressure outside the pocket that was picked off in the end zone by rookie cornerback Jaire Alexander.The Packers’ defense has contained the mobile Allen, who made the highlight reel last week for hurdling over Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr on a first-down run.___2:42 p.m.Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky threw for five touchdowns in the first half, helping the Bears build a 38-3 lead over Tampa Bay.The only NFL player with more in a single half was Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers with six against Chicago in the first two quarters of a romp at Lambeau Field on Nov. 9, 2014.Sid Luckman holds the Bears’ record for TD passes in a game with seven against the New York Giants in 1943.___2:40 p.m.Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri made a 42-yard field goal with 2 seconds left in the first half to break the NFL’s career record.The 23-year veteran has 566 field goals — one more than Hall of Famer Morten Andersen. And he achieved the feat on his home turf, just a short drive from where Andersen played high school football.After the kick, Vinatieri celebrated briefly with holder Rigoberto Sanchez, long snapper Luke Rhodes and the rest of the kicking unit. But that was the extent of the celebration for the 45-year-old Vinatieri, who is the league’s oldest active player.He has moved within 31 points of breaking Andersen’s career scoring record of 2,544 points.___2:30 p.m.Chicago Bears defensive tackle Akiem Hicks has been ejected from the game against Tampa Bay for pushing an official.Hicks was scuffling with a Buccaneers player when he shoved the official.

It came on a pass over the middle that was deflected by linebacker Tremaine Edmunds that ended up being high and slightly behind tight end Jimmy Graham.Rodgers is 7 of 11 for 98 yards with a score. Safety Jordan Poyer picked the ball out of the air for the interception. The Bills though were unable to take advantage on the rare turnover by Rodgers and were forced to punt. It was Buffalo’s fourth three-and-out in five drives. Green Bay leads 13-0 midway through the second quarter.___2 p.m.An unnamed stadium security guard was taken off the field on a stretcher late in the first quarter during the Texans-Colts game.Team officials said he was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Colts spokesman Matt Conti said no other updates will be given because of privacy rules.The security guard was injured when a player ran into him on a punt.

He joined the Packers in the offseason as a free agent.Rodgers is moving a little better in his third game since injuring his left knee.

Hyde is returning to Lambeau Field for the first time since leaving the Packers as a free agent after the 2016 season.___1:40 p.m.Patriots’ Tom Brady has thrown his third interception of the season. This one was a deep, third down pass over the middle that was picked off by Dolphins cornerback Bobby McCain at the 1:36 mark of the first quarter.Brady didn’t throw his third interception last season until Week 11 against Miami.The Patriots lead 3-0 at the end of the first quarter.— Kyle Hightower, reporting from Foxborough, Mass.___1:30 p.m.Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard has hurt a shoulder in the first quarter against Philadelphia and is questionable to return.Woodyard is the Titans’ leading tackler this season.

Walker reporting from Nashville, Tennessee___1:15 p.m.Indianapolis Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton walked straight to the locker room after landing hard on his shoulder following a 40-yard catch-and-run against Houston.It was unclear what Hilton’s injury was and there was no immediate announcement.The four-time Pro Bowler’s big play set up Indy’s first score, a 4-yard TD pass from Luck to Zach Pascal.

He is the first player in NFL history to top 400 yards passing in three consecutive games.The discipline against Winston stemmed from the league’s investigation of an accusation that the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner groped a female Uber driver during a ride in Arizona in March 2016.Defensive tackle Vita Vea, the No. 12 overall draft pick this year, is active for the first time after being sidelined by a calf injury.___1 p.m.Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson both kneeled during the national anthem before their team’s game against the Patriots and defensive end Robert Quinn raised his right fist.All three have staged similar demonstrations during the anthem before their team’s other games this season.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL
