Brandon Pettigrew (foot) remained sidelined at Lions practice Friday.

Coach Jim Caldwell called Pettigrew "a big question mark" for Sunday's Week 8 game against the Falcons. The Lions could be forced to turn to Jordan Thompson and Kellen Davis at tight end with Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria also hurt.

Reggie Bush (ankle) did not practice again Friday, but said he'll play Week 8 against the Falcons.

Bush got in a limited practice Wednesday before sitting out Thursday and Friday. If he does suit up, Bush can't be trusted even in a phenomenal matchup versus Atlanta's sieve-like run defense. Joique Bell should get the bulk of the work as a runner, making him a locked-in RB2. The Lions and Falcons kick off at 9:30 AM ET.

Ravens LT Eugene Monroe (knee) expects to return to the lineup Week 8 against the Bengals.

UDFA James Hurst has been filling in on Joe Flacco's blind side the past four games as Monroe recovers from a knee scope. The Ravens badly need Monroe. Hurst has been destroyed in pass protection and as a run blocker, giving up three sacks against the Colts in Week 5 and taking three holding penalties last Sunday against the Falcons. The Ravens also expect LG Kelechi Osemele back.

Free agent QB Kevin Kolb has retired from the NFL.

Kolb, 30, recounts four known concussions in the NFL, with the final one coming last preseason on his 29th birthday. It ended his career. Kolb says the after-effects of the concussions still haunt him today. He deals with constant ringing in his ears that he compares to "someone shooting a shotgun right next to my ear, every second of every day," sensitivity to light, and short-term memory loss. The former second-round pick of the Eagles had a career 9-12 record.

Juwan Thompson rushed seven times for 24 yards and two touchdowns in Denver's Week 8 win over the Chargers.

Thompson vultured workhorse Ronnie Hillman for two- and one-yard scores in the second half. The touchdowns were his second and third of the season. Thompson has been running well as a situational hammer, but will likely lose that role upon Montee Ball's (groin) return.

Ladarius Green caught his lone target for nine yards in San Diego's Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

It just isn't happening for the explosive third-year pro, who's been glued to the sideline as Antonio Gates has exploded for six touchdowns over his past four games. Green has seven total targets over the same stretch. Keep Green stashed in Dynasty leagues, but quarantined to the waiver wire in re-draft formats.
Oct 24 - 12:32 AM

Eddie Royal caught 3-of-3 targets for 29 yards in San Diego's Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

Royal's predictable fade from his early-season touchdown surge continues unabated. Royal has just nine total grabs for 138 yards and one score over his past four games. Players looking for 12-14 team league value are going to struggle to find it. Royal will score more touchdowns, but they'll be impossible to predict.
Oct 24 - 12:29 AM

Malcom Floyd caught 4-of-7 targets for 58 yards in San Diego's Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

Floyd used his unreal body control to nearly reel in two more catches on difficult deep targets, but had no shot on his third missed connection, a Philip Rivers pick thrown into double coverage. Floyd briefly left with a shoulder injury, but was quickly deemed probable and returned. Floyd is one of the league's very best deep threats, but it doesn't translate to more than WR4/5 value in fantasy leagues.
