Lions signed TE Kellen Davis.
S Jerome Couplin was waived in a corresponding roster move. Davis' addition is a sign the Lions are expecting at least one of Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) to miss Sunday's trip to London.
ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Falcons fear C Peter Konz's knee injury is "significant."
Konz is not an effective player, but it would be terrible news for a Falcons line already missing starter Joe Hawley. Atlanta will be forced to roll with UDFA James Stone if Konz ends up missing extended time.
Jaguars placed MLB Paul Posluszny on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle, ending his season.
Fringe player J.T. Thomas will get the first shot at replacing Posluszny, who has been the Jaguars' leading tackler each of the past four seasons. Jeremiah George is next up behind Thomas. Posluszny is far from a star, but has been a reliable presence for a defense without much talent or valuable experience. Now on the wrong side of 30, Posluszny is signed through 2016, but it's quite possible his $7.45 million 2015 salary gets him cut in the offseason.
Jaguars DE Andre Branch tore his groin muscle against the Browns in Week 7 and is out six weeks.
Branch was a rotational end for Gus Bradley, netting two sacks in Week 1 but none since. An ascending Jags defense also lost MLB Paul Posluszny for the season to a torn pectoral sustained Sunday.
Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman broke his foot during pre-game warmups for Sunday's Week 7 loss at St. Louis.
Coleman somehow took a wrong step while warming up and suffered the fracture. The Seahawks were forced to use Robert Turbin as their fullback.
Calvin Johnson (ankle) will travel with the Lions to London.
This doesn't shed any light on Johnson's Week 8 status. He's still very, very questionable to play against the Falcons after not coming close to suiting up against the Saints. The Lions would do well to rest Megatron through the Week 9 bye and then unleash him.
Redskins OLB Brian Orakpo has been diagnosed with a torn right pectoral and is out for the season.
It's the third torn pectoral of Orakpo's career, although the first two were on his left side. Yet once again, a terrible Redskins defense in desperate need of playmakers is robbed of one. Orakpo had 12 quarterback hurries, six hits and one sack through seven games, also playing strong run defense. He'll enter free agency this spring as a high-risk, high-reward asset. Orakpo was on a one-year, $11.45 million franchise tender this season.
Tre Mason led Rams running backs by playing on 27-of-51 snaps in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.
Benny Cunningham played 19 snaps and Zac Stacy got one. It's clear that Mason has surged to the front of the pile here as the most talented natural runner and is a must-add, but there are major concerns -- most notably in the form of game flow. Mason is a zero in the pass game, which we know is a red flag when a team gets behind. See Andre Williams, Alfred Morris and even Marshawn Lynch for evidence of that. The Rams next five games are at KC, at SF, at ARZ, vs. DEN, at SD.
