Bills signed RB Phillip Tanner.

With C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson both injured, the Bills need a caddie behind Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon. A fourth-year undrafted free agent who spent 2011-13 in Dallas, Tanner has averaged 2.7 yards on 56 career carries. Even in the deepest of leagues, Tanner is a pure desperation add with almost no shot at paying off.

Free agent Terrelle Pryor is part of a large group working out for the Giants Tuesday.

It's unclear if the Giants are kicking the tires on Pryor as a quarterback or wide receiver. He's also had workouts with the Bengals and Bucs over the last month without getting signed.

Coach Mike Tomlin said ILB Ryan Shazier (knee) is "extremely close" to returning.

Shazier has been out since spraining an MCL in Week 3. The first-round rookie's return will give a much-needed speed and talent infusion to the Steelers' linebacking corps. Shazier had 17 tackles, one pass breakup and one tackle for a loss in the first two weeks.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (sports hernia surgery) is practicing Tuesday.

Kelce was originally targeting Week 10 for his return, but appears to be ahead of schedule. PFF's No. 1 center from a year ago will do wonders to stabilize an offensive line that is finally getting healthier. LG Evan Mathis (knee) is reportedly doing well and could be back by Week 10.
Oct 21 - 12:20 PM

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks (calf) is practicing Tuesday.

Kendricks has been out since Week 2, leaving a gaping hole in the Eagles defense. A rising stud, Kendricks is their best cover linebacker.
Oct 21 - 12:17 PM

Darren Sproles (knee) is practicing Tuesday.

Sproles is ahead of schedule as he comes off a sprained MCL. However, he's not expected to participate fully in this light Tuesday session and remains questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona. Sproles was originally expected to miss 1-2 games. Of course, fantasy owners should note he is averaging just 5.5 touches per game in his last four outings anyway.

Markus Wheaton played on a season-low 31-of-67 snaps (46.2 percent) in Monday's win over the Texans.

Wheaton's downright poor play has gotten him demoted after opening the season as the every-down "X." The Steelers finally gave rookie Martavis Bryant (24 snaps) a shot and he responded with 2-40-1 on five targets. Wheaton, who was not targeted at all, can be dropped in most formats.
Oct 21 - 12:07 PM

Giants worked out free agent RB Felix Jones.

It's a standard bye-week workout, but raises some concern about Rashad Jennings' (knee) status. The Giants also worked out free agent RB Alex Green on Tuesday.
