Texans waived CB Charles James.
James slipped and fell on Jordy Nelson's touchdown catch in Sunday's loss to Green Bay, and this was the fallout. With that said, James hadn't played well all year and wasn't getting much defensive run to begin with.
Broncos claimed RB Justin Forsett off waivers from the Lions.
The move became necessary insurance when Kapri Bibbs suffered a high ankle sprain, but it's not out of the question that Forsett assumes a legitimate role in Denver's backfield in the near future. Devontae Booker has struggled mightily in five straight games (2.80 YPC), while Forsett has full knowledge of Kubiak's offense after playing for him in Baltimore and enjoying the best year of his career with Kubiak coordinating the Ravens' 2014 offense.
Broncos ILB Brandon Marshall (hamstring) is expected to miss Week 14 against the Titans.
It's not an ideal week for Marshall to miss with DeMarco Murray on the docket. The Broncos will turn to Corey Nelson next to Todd Davis at inside linebacker.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports suspended Raiders OLB Aldon Smith hopes to meet with the commissioner to discuss his possible reinstatement.
Per Rapsheet, Smith is "setting up" a meeting to meet with Roger Goodell or another "high-ranking official." Smith was supposed to have already learned his status, but the league is apparently hedging. Smith would be returning from an indefinite ban for multiple arrests/violations of the league's substance-abuse policy. He'd be a major weapon for the Raiders down the stretch.
Speaking Monday, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Trevor Siemian (foot) is doing a "lot better."
NBC Denver has reported there's "hope" Siemian returns against the Titans. He has shed his walking boot. The Broncos desperately need Siemian back. Paxton Lynch isn't ready for prime time, to put it mildly. Siemian's status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Broncos return to practice.
Redskins S Will Blackmon is week to week with a concussion.
Blackmon has been limited by injury this season, but played 425 snaps.
Redskins activated LT Trent Williams from the reserve/suspended list.
Ty Nsekhe held his own during Williams' absence, but coach Jay Gruden confirmed the obvious that Williams will immediately slide back in on the blindside. Williams is one of the best players in the league.
Mohamed Sanu (groin) "could" practice on Thursday.
Sanu went down late in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Coach Dan Quinn didn't update his status at Monday's presser. With Julio Jones battling turf toe, Sanu's health is all the more important.
