  Patriots | Tom Brady limited during practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:56 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Brady is a rock solid QB1 matched up against the Bears this week. After starting the season slowly, Brady has bounced back in a big way for the Patriots and his fantasy owners.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham limited    Wed Oct 22, 04:42 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Graham was only targeted twice in the game against the Lions in Week 7...and he caught zero passes thrown his way. We'll see if he can get healthier and get back on track this week. This ankle injury complicates things, but Graham is still a low-end TE1 in Week 8.

  Saints | Khiry Robinson misses practices    Wed Oct 22, 04:38 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Both Robinson and Pierre Thomas (shoulder) are a little bit banged up. Fantasy owners of Mark Ingram should see a larger workload in Week 8. We like Ingram as a RB2/flex play in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Bengals | Limited practice for Giovani Bernard    Wed Oct 22, 04:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) was listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Bernard was rocked last week by cornerback Vonta Davis, and that led to this injury. We'll see if he can practice fully later in the week. The Bengals need to get back on track, and Bernard is a mid-range RB2 in Week 8 against the Ravens.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas does not practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:37 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Thomas might not be able to play this week. With Thomas and Khiry Robinson (forearm) both banged up, we could see a larger role for Mark Ingram in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Bengals | A.J. Green absent at practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) wasn't feeling good enough to return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green won't play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens unless he's 'significantly healed,' but left the door open for Green to play. "It's hard for me to put a guy out there Sunday that I don't think can last a full game," Lewis said. "If we have A.J. for part of the game doing certain things, that would be great. I think we could operate offensively ... I guess we'll cross that bridge when the time comes."

Footballguys view: Green's status for Week 8 is up in the air right now. Watch to see if he can practice later in the week.

  Packers | James Starks doesn't practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:27 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Starks injured the ankle in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Starks is nothing more than a 'what the heck' flex if he plays in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Ravens | Owen Daniels sits out Wednesday    Wed Oct 22, 04:25 PM

  Colts | Reggie Wayne misses practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Wayne's playing status for Week 8 is up in the air. We could see a few more targets for rookie Donte Moncrief if Wayne is out.

  Colts | Trent Richardson sits out    Wed Oct 22, 04:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Richardson is a little banged up here, but he's looked good enough in recent weeks to throw in as a flex play. Make sure to check back to monitor Richardson's practice status.

  Jaguars | Toby Gerhart limited Wednesday    Wed Oct 22, 04:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Gerhart may play this week, but his role will be as a backup behind Denard Robinson. It's safe for most re-draft fantasy owners to move on from Gerhart.

  Titans | Shonn Greene doesn't do all drills    Wed Oct 22, 04:11 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: The Titans brought up Antonio Andrews off their practice squad earlier this week. Greene might be back soon, but he'll still be a reserve player behind Bishop Sankey. He has little fantasy value.

  Broncos | Montee Ball to miss Week 8    Wed Oct 22, 03:45 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Ball may be back in the lineup around Week 11....but his role may have drastically changed. Ronnie Hillman has looked good as a starter for the team over the last two weeks. That means Ball may return to the lineup as a reserve back behind Hillman. We'll see if Hillman can maintain his success on the ground....and hang onto the rock while Ball is still out.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay QB decision not made yet    Wed Oct 22, 03:45 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QBs Josh McCown and Mike Glennon are waiting to see who will be starting Week 8. Head coach Lovie Smith said he will see how they do this week before making a decision.

Footballguys view: For the love of all things that are holy, why in the world would McCown even be considered as a starter? Glennon has looked bad at times this year, but he's certainly looked better than what McCown showed earlier this season. We hope--and assume rational coaching here, but in the NFL you just never know.

LB Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) was limited in practice and is doubtful. CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) and CB Steve Williams (groin) both were limited in practice and are questionable. LB Kavell Conner (ankle), OT D.J. Fluker (ankle) and OG Richard Ohrnberger (back) all fully practiced and are probable. LB Dwight Freeney was limited in practice and is probable.

  Rams | Tre Mason could be top RB option    Wed Oct 22, 03:08 PM

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason could be the top candidate for a majority of carries since he is averaging 5.4 yards per carry. Mason rushed for 85 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in Week 7 and received most of the carries because he had the hot hand, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. RB Zac Stacy was announced the starter for Week 7 but only played one snap. RB Benny Cunningham only rushed for three yards during the game. Stacy is averaging 3.93 yards per carry this season, while Cunningham is averaging 3.78 yards per carry.

Footballguys view: Mason has led the team in rushing yards over the last two weeks. The speedy rookie has more explosiveness than Cunningham or Stacy. Fantasy owners need to consider Mason a low-end RB2/flex with upside in PPR leagues.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles limited    Wed Oct 22, 02:30 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: There's no official timetable on when Sproles will be back from his knee injury. He could return this week against the Cardinals, but we only can recommend him as a low-end flex play--if he plays.

  Jets | Percy Harvin won't play 50 snaps    Wed Oct 22, 02:18 PM

New York Jets WR Percy Harvin won't play 50 snaps in his debut with the team in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: The Jets made an interesting move by adding Harvin here, but fantasy owners should wait and see how things work out before rushing to get him in the lineup. In the first week with his new team, Harvin is a low-end WR4.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims practicing    Wed Oct 22, 02:17 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but will not be added to the roster until he is activated from the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Sims is an interesting name to keep an eye on in deeper leagues. Dynasty owners are certainly interested in seeing what he can do. Sims has a skill set similar to that of a poor man's version of Matt Forte. When he's active, the Bucs could choose to mix him in if Doug Martin and Bobby Rainey are struggling.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles showed concussion symptoms    Wed Oct 22, 02:15 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (concussion) showed no signs of a concussion when he was checked after a helmet-to-helmet hit in Week 7, according to trainer Rick Burkholder. However, Charles said he was never checked, and he said after the game that the hit was no big deal. He changed his tune after the game: 'It definitely hurt,' Charles said. 'A couple plays later, I just (saw) this light buzz around my eyes and I was trying to catch 'em. But I was like, 'Let's get the ball and run again.'' Charles had other concussion symptoms, as well, but didn't think he had a concussion. He was cleared from the concussion protocol Tuesday, Oct. 21, and was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but the team will continue to monitor him.

Footballguys view: Um, the Chiefs had better keep an eye on Charles here. He's clearly the best player on the roster, and Charles is one of the best backs in all of football. We're happy that Andy Reid didn't have to apologize (again) for not using Charles enough. Charles was a big reason why the Chiefs were able to beat the Chargers in Week 7.
