  Chiefs | Alex Smith a full go in practice    Thu Oct 30, 05:26 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (shoulder) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Just as expected...this shoulder injury is no big deal. Smith makes for a decent fill in at QB with six teams on bye. He's facing a pathetic Jets secondary in Week 9.

  Redskins | 'Skins intent on starting Robert Griffin    Thu Oct 30, 04:50 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, barring any setbacks this week in practice, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden and the coaching staff are intent on Griffin starting, and Gruden said it would take Griffin re-injuring his ankle for him not to play. 'We have every intent of him starting,' Gruden said. 'Everybody's on board as far from a physical standpoint. Last week he was running around like a banchi. He's healthier than most of the guys we have playing. From a physical standpoint he's ready but for a young quarterback who missed this much time in a new system, the big thing is getting back from a mental standpoint.' Griffin increased his workload with the first team Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: It's not a great matchup for Washington. We're keeping Griffin on the fantasy bench if at all possible. Let's wait and see how he looks upon his return before trusting him as a fantasy starter.

  Jets | Geno Smith resumes throwing    Thu Oct 30, 01:31 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith (shoulder) resumed throwing in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Michael Vick is getting the start, so this is just a matter of figuring out whether or not Smith is the backup, or if Matt Simms will be promoted from the practice squad. Vick, for what it's worth, is not worth a start this weekend.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin works with starters    Thu Oct 30, 01:26 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) received most of the work with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Oct. 30, and will start in Week 9 if he does not have any setbacks, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: We're waiting to start Griffin this week if at all possible. Gruden said the team believes Griffin is 100 percent physically but want to make sure he is up to speed mentally.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo not practicing    Thu Oct 30, 12:57 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) didn't take part in the walk-through Thursday, Oct. 30, and will not practice with the team. However, head coach Jason Garrett remains hopeful that Romo can play in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. 'He's not ruled out for this game by any means,' Garrett said. 'He's getting himself mentally ready. He's in the meetings. He's a part of our football team, and hopefully as the week goes on, it feels better and he can function and it'll give him a chance to play.' Romo and the team continue to say that his injury is not related to his disc problem that he had surgery on last year. Romo said he'd play if the question is only about pain tolerance. Garrett said the team is calling the injury a bone contusion. The Cowboys are looking into modifications for Romo's pads if he is to play Sunday, Nov. 2.

Footballguys view: We do expect Romo to play this weekend, but it's worth keeping an eye on this. The hit to his back was tough and took him out of the game, but we expect him to play and believe the Cowboys are just being cautious. We see Romo as a solid QB2 this week even in a tough matchup.

  Cowboys | Optimistic about Tony Romo's status    Thu Oct 30, 12:15 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo's (back) status is making head coach Jason Garrett feel optimistic about his availability for Week 9.

Footballguys view: We fully expect Romo to play this weekend even against a tough matchup like Arizona. This is the weekly dance we all do--Romo takes a few days off to rest his back, the team pretends maybe he might not start, we all laugh--rinse repeat. Romo should be a rock solid QB2 this week.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo expected to be limited    Thu Oct 30, 11:52 AM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is not expected to do much during practice during practice Thursday, Oct. 30, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

Footballguys view: As always, Romo is going to be handled with kid gloves and why not? The Cowboys have playoff aspirations and won't upset the apple cart by risking wearing him down. This week against a tough Arizona team, he's a high-end QB2.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith fully practices     Wed Oct 29, 06:19 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: The shoulder injury is no big deal. Smith should have a nice day against a pathetic Jets secondary. With six teams on bye this week, fantasy owners might have to choose a guy like Smith as the starter.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin expected to start    Wed Oct 29, 05:31 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to start in the team's Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to league sources.

Footballguys view: Colt McCoy beat the Cowboys on Monday Night Football in Week 8, but he goes back to the bench. Griffin will be an interesting start against a Vikings defense which only allows about 212 passing yards per game. The Vikings are also second in the NFL with 25 sacks as a team in 2014.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin could play in Week 9    Wed Oct 29, 04:11 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could play against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 29, and split first-team repetitions with QB Colt McCoy. Gruden said Griffin's situation is now more mental than physical. 'We'll see it's all going to depend on how he does in tomorrow and Friday,' Gruden said. 'And moving forward, how I feel he's coming back. From a physical standpoint he looks good, now it's a matter of mental and getting back into the football part of it. If he looks good in that regard then there's a chance he could play and if not and he needs another week, he'll take another week.'

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (shoulder) is expected to be a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, according to head coach Andy Reid.

Footballguys view: Smith looks like he's going to be fine for the game in Week 9 against the Jets. You could do worse at QB if you're filling in for your regular starter on bye.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29. QB Brandon Weeden is working with the first-team offense during practice.

Footballguys view: We're not shocked by this news....Romo was sitting out on Wednesday (or at least limited) already. With this latest back contusion we could see him limited even more. At this time, his playing status for Week 9 against Arizona is unknown.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin very close to return    Tue Oct 28, 05:39 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is 'very, very, very close' to returning to game action, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'Physically I think he'll be ready to go. Doctors are feeling pretty good about it, they still want to feel around this week until we make the final determination. I just want to make sure he feels good in the pocket,'

Footballguys view: Ride the hot hand of Colt McCoy! Washington wants to be very cautious with their franchise QB, so Griffin will get all the time he needs to properly heal. Gruden said they don't want to rush Griffin back too soon, so the evaluation of him could last another week.

  Jets | Geno Smith's availability in question    Tue Oct 28, 05:06 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith's (shoulder) availability for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs is in question, and he's experiencing 'minor soreness.' However, head coach Rex Ryan downplayed the severity of Smith's injury, and said the team hopes he can resume throwing by Wednesday, Oct. 29. QB Matt Simms will be ready just in case.

Footballguys view: Even if Smith was 1000 percent healthy, the team is moving forward with Michael Vick as the starter. This injury is only a footnote. Smith has struggled as a starter, and the team is going nowhere with him under center.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo undergoing MRI    Tue Oct 28, 02:54 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will undergo an MRI exam Tuesday, Oct. 28, for a better look at his bruised back. X-rays came back negative Monday, Oct. 27, and he was able to return to the Week 8 game after taking a pain-killing shot. The team expects Romo to be ready to play the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9. He finished the game with 209 yards after going 17-for-28, and he was sacked a season-high five times.

Footballguys view: Romo's back is going to be an issue going forward because it already was a concern for the team. This latest injury will only make him more a limited participant during the week of practice. Romo should be able to continue playing with this less-than-100-percent back.

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) suffered a contusion near the surgical site in his back Monday, Oct. 27.

New York Jets QB Michael Vick will start this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: With the way that Geno Smith has been playing, this should come as no surprise. Vick didn't exactly set the world on fire in Week 8 after replacing an ineffective Smith. We'll see if a full week of practice helps Vick look better against the Chiefs.

Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith has been the intended target for five of QB Joe Flacco's seven interceptions this season, which is tied for the most interceptions when targeting a receiver. Smith has also caught only 46.2 percent of the passes thrown to him this season.

Footballguys view: Smith is running plenty of routes, and the film shows he's getting open. Flacco and Smith have been out of sync most weeks. Drop expectations for both until we see more consistency from week to week.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 36 of his 62 pass attempts for 411 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals. His 62 pass attempts tied the franchise record set by former QB Randall Cunningham in 1989. Foles is also the first Eagles QB with nine interceptions through seven games since Cunningham, also in 1989.

Footballguys view: Foles won't throw 62 passes again soon, but the Eagles have become a much more pass heavy than they were last year. He'll have another stiff test against the Texans next week, but the numbers should come.
