Panthers LT Michael Oher (concussion) did not practice Monday.
Oher has been out since Week 3 with a concussion. He could still get cleared in time to face the Cardinals this week, but sitting out the first practice after the bye is not a good sign. Mike Remmers has been filling in at left tackle with Oher sidelined.
Panthers DT Vernon Butler (ankle) returned to practice Monday.
Butler has been sidelined since Week 3 with a high-ankle sprain. The first-round pick should return this week.
Panthers CB James Bradberry (toe) returned to practice Monday.
Bradberry had missed the last two games with turf toe. He will likely be limited -- Carolina does not have to release participation information on Monday -- but any work this early in the week puts him on track to play. Bradberry's return will be a big boost for one of the worst pass defenses in the league.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Tony Romo (back) "has yet to be cleared to practice fully."
La Canfora reports Romo will likely need another MRI before he is cleared. Even if that happens this week, Romo is not expected to play Week 8 against the Eagles and likely will need a couple weeks of practice before he is ready. With Dak Prescott playing well, the Cowboys could choose to string this situation out as long as possible. Prescott should start at least the next two games.
Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski said, "I stink right now."
Gostkowski has already missed two extra points and three attempts after connecting on at least 90 percent of his kicks and all of his extra points the last three seasons. "Obviously there's something going on and I'm gonna work my hardest to fix it," Gostkowski said. "No one feels worse about screwing up than I do." Despite his struggles, Gostkowski is in no danger of losing his job.
Eagles SCB Ron Brooks suffered a torn quad Week 7 against the Vikings.
Originally reported with a knee issue, Brooks had to be carted off the field after going down with a non-contact injury. He is done for the year. S Malcolm Jenkins will spend more time covering the slot with Brooks out.
Pro Football Talk reports the 49ers are willing to trade LT Joe Staley for a first-round pick.
With the Browns also willing to move Joe Thomas for the low, low price of a second-round pick, contenders desperate for help on the offensive line have at least a couple options. The Browns reportedly could have gotten a first-rounder out of the Broncos for Thomas last season, so the asking price is not unreasonable for Staley. The Vikings, Seahawks, and Giants should be interested.
Bills WR Marquise Goodwin suffered a possible concussion Week 7 against the Dolphins.
Goodwin's head slammed on the turf after he went up high for an off-target throw in the fourth quarter. With Robert Woods (foot) looking unlikely to play this week, the Bills are ridiculously thin at receiver. Justin Hunter played the most snaps against the Dolphins.
