Junior Hemingway (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 8.
Hemingway practiced on a limited basis after suffering a hamstring injury last week. He's expected to be a game-time decision. With Donnie Avery sidelined, Hemingway would play in four-wide sets.
ESPN's Dan Graziano believes the Giants could move on from LT Will Beatty after this season.
Beatty has three years and $26.5 million remaining on his current deal. The Giants can get out of his contract next offseason by making him a June 1 cut. Beatty is PFF's No. 7 left tackle through eight weeks, but has struggled with injuries and consistency throughout his career. His future with the Giants will be determined by how he plays over the final nine games.
ESPN Cleveland believes that OC Kyle Shanahan has concerns about Ben Tate as the Browns' feature back.
Tate has started or led the backfield in touches in every game he's been healthy, but Shanahan's comments about wanting "one of the backs to separate" suggests the Browns aren't sold on him carrying the load. There could be a changing of the guard if Tate continues to struggle and one of Isaiah Crowell or Terrance West emerges with a hot-hand. Tate has a 2.8 YPC over the last two games. Crowell has been the most productive and could start to see his role increased. The Browns have the most invested in West as a third-round pick.
ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reports that internal pressure to play Johnny Manziel has "turned up considerably."
Brian Hoyer is coming off a highly-unproductive loss to the Jaguars, leading the Browns to briefly consider going to Manziel in the second half. Hoyer has been mostly solid managing Kyle Shanahan's offense prior to last week, but his leash on the starting job is now in question. It could be only a matter of time before the Browns turn to Manziel. Hoyer is in danger of getting benched if he can't move the offense against the winless Raiders.
Coach Jason Garrett suggested RT Doug Free (foot) could return in Week 9.
Free is ahead of schedule after being given a 3-4 week timetable. He won't play on Monday night, but the Cowboys expect him to resume practicing next week. If Free avoids setbacks, he'll have a chance to return after only two games.
Saints promoted RB Edwin Baker from the practice squad.
Baker provides depth with Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas sidelined. The Saints waived TE Tom Crabtree.
Raiders placed S Usama Young (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.
It's a procedural move after Young suffered tears to his ACL and MCL in Week 7. The Raiders will be forced to start Brandian Ross opposite Charles Woodson.
Bears WR Marquess Wilson (broken collarbone) is eligible to return from the injured reserve-designated for return list in Week 10.
After playing the Patriots on Sunday, the Bears have a bye in Week 9. Wilson will be eligible return in the following game. Chicago has been missing a third receiver from its 2014 offense with Santonio Holmes and Josh Morgan sharing the role. A 22-year-old with huge long-term upside, Wilson should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and is worth a look for 16-team re-draft leaguers as well.
