WGR 550 Buffalo's Sal Capaccio reports "there's still no decision" on Tyrod Taylor's (knee) status for Week 6 against the Bengals.
An earlier report had Tyrod Taylor slated to possibly miss "multiple games" with a sprained MCL. According to Capaccio, who's far more plugged into the Bills than CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "the plan" is for Taylor to go through treatment and rehab before the Bills make a decision on his Week 6 status. Taylor could be ruled out at any moment, but the Bills want to give themselves time.
Bears ILB Shea McClellin (knee) is considered week-to-week.
The Bears are promoting ILB Jonathan Anderson from the practice squad. He could conceivably get the start next to ILB Christian Jones in the Bears' 3-4 scheme. McClellin has received plus marks from PFF for his run defense.
Raiders ILB Curtis Lofton was benched in favor of rookie Neiron Ball in Week 5 against the Broncos.
Lofton has been one of Pro Football Focus' worst inside linebackers through three weeks, and Ball got the start and played 36 snaps to Lofton's 22. Ball's strength is in coverage, and he was used primarily to stop Broncos TE Owen Daniels. It worked, as Daniels recorded zero catches on five targets. The Raiders gave Lofton $10 million guaranteed in March after he was released by the Saints.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid expects to go with a committee at running back in the absence of Jamaal Charles.
"You know you’re not going to replace Jamaal," Reid said. "You find out and (take advantage of) the strengths of those other players." Reid considers Charcandrick West more similar to Charles as a quick runner who makes people miss. He'll be the chairman of the committee. But Reid still envisions a role for Knile Davis. "Knile’s had some big games for us here when he’s been called on," Reid said. Davis will begin as a power change-of-pace back who could get goal-line looks. West is definitely the preferred add, but Davis is worth a flier in 12-team leagues.
Leonard Hankerson (ribs) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.
HankTime was listed with a ribs issue in Week 5. His status isn't in doubt for Thursday's game against the Saints, where he'll remain a mid-range WR3.
Devonta Freeman (toe) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.
Freeman was absent from the Week 5 injury report, but listed in Week 4 with a toe issue. He proceeded to rip the Texans for three scores and 149 yards from scrimmage. He's a top-five RB1 for Thursday against the Saints.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll would "love to get the ball in (Jimmy Graham's) hands more."
"We only completed 15 passes (Sunday), so we need to get more activity out of him," Carroll said. "Just like we need to get more out of the other guys too. But he’s working hard at it." Graham is averaging just 5.4 targets through his first five games as a Seahawk. He averaged 8.8 per week as a Saint from 2011-14. The impetus is on Carroll to change the game plan, not Graham to get more open.
Cardinals placed S Chris Clemons on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.
Clemons has been slowed by hamstring issues all season. The veteran will likely be released off I.R. with an injury settlement once he's back to full health.
