  Broncos | No new deal for Julius Thomas soon    Thu Oct 23, 11:21 AM

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is not expected to have contract extension talks with the team during the season. Thomas will be a free agent this offseason, and the two sides are expected to talk after the season.

Footballguys view: Hopefully this won't be a distraction, but so far it hasn't bothered Thomas that we can see. Expect another top TE1 game this Thursday against the San Diego Chargers and another zero or two added to his contract demands this offseason.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph progressing    Thu Oct 23, 10:26 AM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) stretched with the team Wednesday, Oct. 22, and did some running on the side.

Footballguys view: It looks like Rudolph could be back after the team's Week 10 bye, so if you are in need of tight end help, start thinking about him. We'll see enough of Teddy Bridgewater before then to know if there will be some value there.

  Lions | Eric Ebron sits    Thu Oct 23, 10:12 AM

Detroit Lions TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) sat out of practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: It doesn't look good for Ebron but then again, there's really nobody at tight end we'd start as we hope you aren't in bad enough shape to start Kellen Davis who is a poor TE3 at best.

  Giants | Larry Donnell hasn't hit ceiling    Thu Oct 23, 12:53 AM

New York Giants TE Larry Donnell is just scratching the surface, according to tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride. Some of his mistakes, including fumbles and blocking deficiencies, are simply the product of a player at the low end of his ultimate progression. 'He's so green with everything he does,' Gilbride said. 'He hasn't been playing the position for very long. But he works at it, he tries to get better and it's paid off in the passing game and he's getting better every week in the run game.'

  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.

Detroit Lions DE Ziggy Ansah (toe), TE Joseph Fauria (ankle), OT LaAdrian Waddle (calf) and TE Brandon Pettigrew (undisclosed) are out of practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: The Lions TE situation is one to watch here...especially if Calvin Johnson can't play against the Falcons. It doesn't help that Eric Ebron also missed practice on Wednesday as well.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen becoming a red zone threat    Tue Oct 21, 10:18 PM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen said he was not expecting to be as involved in the red zone as he has been this season. He has five touchdowns in seven games, and three of those scores have come on plays in the red zone.

Footballguys view: Allen's prime directive is to score touchdowns and help your fantasy team. We're happy the Colts offense is flowing through Andrew Luck, and fantasy owners are ecstatic about this passing game as well.

  Jaguars | Marcedes Lewis to practice soon?    Tue Oct 21, 04:08 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) is expected to be able to practice next week. Lewis is on the short-term Reserve/Injured list with a high ankle sprain.

Footballguys view: The Clay Harbor express will be ending soon. If you've picked up Harbor in free agency, you might want to get him in the lineup soon. When Lewis is back, Harbor will be a player you can move on from.

  Colts | Dwayne Allen overcoming limitations    Tue Oct 21, 10:27 AM

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) said he is still working his way back to pre-injury form, but he looks a lot better than he did in training camp, according to beat writer Stephen Holder. Allen has 33 catches for 305 yards and five touchdowns thus far.

Footballguys view: Allen's prime directive is to score touchdowns and dominate for your fantasy team. We like him as a low-end TE1 each week. The thing holding him back from having more upside is the presence of Coby Fleener.

  Chargers | Ladarius Green not involved    Mon Oct 20, 04:29 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green hasn't seen his role expand this year after head coach Mike McCoy expected him to earn a much bigger role in the offense in the offseason. Green wasn't thrown to at all in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs after being featured extensively against them last year.

Footballguys view: The Chargers barely had the ball against the Chiefs. We'll see if they can get Green more involved on Thursday night against the Broncos.

Daniels is second on the team with 27 catches, 275 yards and three touchdowns. 'He makes catches in traffic,' Flacco said. 'He obviously has held onto the ball a lot of times while getting hit by two guys, even one in the end zone. So, yes, I have a lot of confidence throwing to him.'

  Cowboys | Tony Romo shines again    Sun Oct 19, 11:17 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was 17-for-23 for 279 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants, and two touchdowns went to TE Gavin Escobar. 'I'd have to say that may be (the) best game I've ever seen Tony Romo play,' owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. 'That was an outstanding game. He was pinpointing the ball, making the kind of plays and protecting the ball.' Romo said his surgically repaired back felt fine during the game, and he needed a toradol shot before the game to help with his bruised ribs and sprained ankle.

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar had career-highs with three receptions, 65 yard and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the New York Giants. It was his first multi-touchdown game.

Footballguys view: Escobar has come a long way under the tutelage of new TE coach Mike Pope. He's worth a look against Washington on Monday night this week if you like to stream tight ends.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham could be available in a trade before the trade deadline.
