Austin Pettis was late for a Rams team activity over the weekend.

Pettis and practice squad WR Emory Blake were both late, and both have since been cut. But that was likely just the straw that broke the camel's back on Pettis. The former third-round pick had already agreed to a paycut and somehow averaged just 9.66 yards per reception in his NFL career. Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens are better prospects.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) is not expected back for a few more weeks.

Maualuga suffered a severe pull in Week 6 against the Panthers, adding to the Bengals' decimation at linebacker. Backup Vinny Rey had 16 tackles against the Colts in Week 7.

49ers OLB Aldon Smith's nine-game suspension could be reduced for good behavior.

As of right now, Smith isn't eligible to return until Week 11 against the Giants. But the league office is considering lowering the ban by one or two games, which surely would infuriate the Rams (Week 9 opponent) and Saints (Week 10). There is a precedent for reducing suspensions, namely in the form of Ben Roethlisberger and Brandon Marshall. The 49ers are on a bye this week.

Calvin Johnson (ankle) has resumed running.

Johnson is in London with his teammates as they get ready for a game against the 2-5 Falcons. We're expecting him to sit that one out and then take the Week 9 bye to get truly back to 100 percent. Megatron's ability to get some running in on his severe sprain is great news for his outlook upon return -- he's an excellent buy if anyone is selling.

Bills GM Doug Whaley traded for Bryce Brown because he felt the former Eagle had the potential to be a star.

Whaley gave up a fourth-round pick to get Brown this summer, relatively steep compensation by NFL standards. Note that Brown was the unquestioned No. 1 high school player in the country coming out, getting compared to Reggie Bush by Lane Kiffin. He has 4.48 speed at 6'0/220 and is excellent in the pass game. As the Buffalo News speculates, Brown will at worst be a "co-feature back" with Anthony Dixon while Fred Jackson (groin) is out. He's a plug-n-play RB2 with potential to stick in the C.J. Spiller role even once F-Jax returns.

Coach Mike Pettine said Brian Hoyer is "still firmly our starter."

Hoyer laid an egg in a loss to the previously winless Jaguars in Week 7, looking uncomfortable in the pocket and displaying concerning inaccuracy. But he earned enough leash early in the year to get another start, this time against the 0-6 Raiders. If Hoyer loses that game, the calls for Johnny Manziel will become deafening.

Mike Glennon is expected to start Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Josh McCown (thumb) has resumed practicing, but Glennon has outperformed the veteran badly this season. Over the last three games, Glennon has gone 1-2 with two 300-yard games and a 6:3 TD-to-INT ration. He'll be a two-QB league option against a very burnable Vikings secondary this week.

According to NFL Network, Pierre Thomas (shoulder) will miss 2-3 weeks.

Thomas, currently third on the Saints in both catches and rush attempts, sustained the injury during Sunday's narrow loss at Detroit. The earliest he'll return is likely Week 10, as the Saints play on Thursday night in Week 9. It opens up a nice window for Khiry Robinson to get a bump in snaps and Travaris Cadet to get on the PPR radar. Cadet's role was expanding a bit even before Thomas' injury, as he has 15-129-1 through the air over the last three weeks while exclusively playing in the pass game.
