Coach Jay Gruden wouldn't rule out Robert Griffin III (ankle) returning for Week 8.

If Griffin looks "great" in practice this week, top beat writer John Keim expects him to get the nod on Monday night against Dallas. If not, it's expected to be Colt McCoy under center. Kirk Cousins has played his way off the map with nine interceptions in the last five games. Griffin was not playing well in Jay Gruden's pocket-passer scheme prior to his injury, but is on the QB1 map anytime he starts due to dual-threat ability. RG3 is a must-add for anyone in need of quarterback help.

Chargers CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) is expected to miss Thursday's Week 8 game against the Broncos.

The short week isn't doing the Chargers' improved secondary any favors. Verrett will likely miss his second straight game, and fellow CB Brandon Flowers suffered a concussion on Sunday. It's not a good time for Peyton week.

Coach Mike Zimmer asked his backs to get three yards after contact per rush in Sunday's game at Buffalo.

It's a ridiculously high standard, as Chris Ivory came into Week 7 leading the league in that category at 2.68 YAC per attempt. But Jerick McKinnon met it, impressively bouncing off would-be tackles to net 57 yards after contact on 19 carries, finishing with 103 rushing yards. He out-touched Matt Asiata 21-7, and the sterling performance ensures that McKinnon will remain the clear-cut lead back against the Bucs in Week 8. We like the physical freak's chances of holding RB2 value the rest of the way.

Fred Jackson was told his groin injury typically comes with a four-week timetable.

Jackson says he'll try to beat that timetable and hasn't ruled himself out of returning for Week 10. But given the severity of his injury and how difficult it is for running backs to overcome soft-tissue pulls, Week 11 or 12 seems more realistic. His adductor longus pulled off the bone about a centimeter. Jackson remains a hold for owners if possible, especially with tasty matchups against the Packers and Raiders in Weeks 15 and 16. C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is out for the year.

Calvin Johnson (ankle) wasn't particularly close to playing in Sunday's win over the Saints.

Johnson didn't practice at all last week and didn't participate in pre-game drills. With the bye coming after the Week 8 game in London, it's looking like Megatron won't be back until Week 10. In the four games he's either been out or hobbled in this year, Golden Tate is averaging 8.0 catches, 112.0 yards and 0.5 touchdowns.

Andre Ellington said he called for Stepfan Taylor to come in and vulture his touchdowns Sunday.

Ellington insisted that he could have stayed in, but wanted Taylor to get the scores because he "deserved" it. That's a reference to all the work Taylor has put in during practice as Ellington has rested his foot. It sounds nice in theory, but there's a good chance the coaches prefer to use the bigger back near the goal-line. It's also a way to limit Ellington's workload a bit, as he's averaging 21.6 touches per game right now. Ellington, who has two touchdowns in six outings this season, is a borderline RB1 weekly despite his lack of scoring upside.

Anthony Dixon is under the impression he'll be the Bills' feature back going forward.

Fred Jackson (groin) could miss a month and C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is out for the season. "This is opportunity I've been waiting for, to get back in that workhorse role and show people what I can do," said Dixon, who went on to insist he's been mislabeled as a short-yardage back. The problem for Dixon is that the Bills traded for Bryce Brown this summer, a far more talented, versatile and explosive runner. We're expecting Brown to lead the committee, with "Boobie" filling a big back role.

When asked if Denard Robinson will keep the feature back job, coach Gus Bradley said, "Yeah, I think so."

Coaches are loathe to make depth chart declarations, especially right after games. But Bradley had to at least suggest he'd give it up for Shoelace after a 22-127-1 outing as the starter. When Toby Gerhart returns from his foot injury, he'll slide into a complementary role along with Storm Johnson. Gerhart has been a drop candidate in 10- and 12-team leagues for a few weeks now.
