Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Geronimo Allison (hamstring) will practice Tuesday.

Allison appeared close to playing before the bye, so it is not a surprise he is ready to practice following the off week. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to face the Rams on Sunday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Randall Cobb (hamstring) will practice Tuesday.

Cobb was a game-time decision before the bye, so it is not a surprise he is ready to go following a week off. Barring a setback, Cobb should be ready to face the Rams on Sunday.

The Athletic's Marcus Thompson reports Derek Carr has a "fractured relationship" with his teammates.

With Khalil Mack and now Amari Cooper out the door, there have been rumblings the Raiders want to move on from Carr as well, and Thompson reports Carr's play and a perceived lack of toughness -- an absurd notion given how quickly he returned from a transverse fracture in his back -- have cost him the locker room. "The belief in him has deteriorated, perhaps to irreparable levels," Thompson writes. "It’s hard to see how Carr can lead this team again." Carr has four years left on a five-year, $125 million extension, but the Raiders can get out with a relatively minor cap hit after this season.

Dolphins DE Charles Harris (calf) will not play Thursday against the Texans.

Harris has been sidelined since suffering a calf injury in practice ahead of Week 6, and the early rule out is not a great sign for his availability moving forward. In better news, Miami did get Cameron Wake back last week.

Seahawks walk-year DE Frank Clark's agent said their side does not "feel any panic or urgency" to get a deal done.

Agent Erik Burkhardt said he has "had several very productive and positive talks with the Seahawks," but he does not want to settle for a deal now just to watch the market get reset in the spring. "The financial goal for players in every major sport now is to get to free agency," Burkhardt said. "Just to do an early deal for the sake of doing an early deal doesn't excite us, especially for a guy like Frank who's already a dominant pass-rusher in this league and is just scratching the surface of what he will be." Waiting to do a deal does create some injury risk, but Burkhardt said Clark is covered by an insurance policy. It looks like Seattle will either have to pay top dollar or use the franchise tag to keep Clark from bolting in the spring.

Jets RB Elijah McGuire (foot, injured reserve) returned to practice last week.

McGuire cannot be activated until next week, but returning to practice when first eligible is a great sign for his health. With Bilal Powell's availability in question because of a neck injury, McGuire could return to a significant role behind Isaiah Crowell. He is worth a look in deep leagues.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said a first-round pick is "what a player like [Amari Cooper] costs."

Paying a first-round pick for a No. 1 receiver is not an issue, but paying it for a player who has struggled to consistently produce and will require a big extension in the near future is more dubious. Either way, Cooper is a Cowboy now, and he will join the team on Tuesday to start getting ready for what should be his debut in Week 9.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said RB/KR Tyler Ervin could get some work in the slot moving forward.

Ervin was forced into action as a receiver after Keke Coutee aggravated his hamstring injury against the Jaguars, catching one pass for 19 yards. With Coutee expected to sit out Thursday night's game against the Dolphins, Ervin could be asked to play receiver again. "He's a very smart player, so we'll see how that goes for us moving forward," O'Brien said. "We've got a lot of different things we can do in the slot, but he's definitely one guy that we can use there." Even if he gets some receiver snaps, it is tough to see Ervin returning real fantasy value.
