Marques Colston (shoulder) was held out of Tuesday's practice.
Colston reportedly has a separated shoulder. He'll almost certainly miss Thursday's game against the Falcons.
Seahawks waived WR Rod Smith and RB Rod Smith.
A gadget player who's been bouncing around the NFC West since 2013, Daniels is just about out of chances in the big leagues.
Saints RG Jahri Evans (knee scope) is expected to return for Thursday's game against the Falcons.
Evans underwent a scope after Week 2, and has missed the past three games. New Orleans' line has been struggling of late, but Evans hasn't been an above-average player since 2013. He turned 32 in August.
Texans waived WR/KR Chandler Worthy.
Worthy was actually active for three of Houston's first five games, catching three passes for 14 yards. An UDFA out of Troy, Worthy will be stashed back to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Chiefs placed RB Jamaal Charles on injured reserve with a torn right ACL, ending his season.
Charles has roughly 10 months to get ready for next year's training camp. Charles recovered smoothly from a torn left ACL in 2011, but was four years younger. He will almost certainly skip all of next preseason. Despite the injury and Charles' advancing age – he turns 29 in December — he'll remain a talent worth betting on next season. Charles' career 5.5 yards per carry is fourth all time. He's never posted a YPC below 5.0.
ESPN's Ed Werder reports Brandon Weeden has been benched for Matt Cassel.
It could be seen coming from a mile away after Weeden (again) face-planted against the Patriots. Now 33, Cassel is obviously not a starting-caliber quarterback, but OC Scott Linehan must (correctly) believe he can be more easily molded than Weeden. Cassel will play caretaker, hoping not to screw things up any further as the Cowboys wait on Tony Romo and Dez Bryant to return. Cassel will rarely, if ever, be on the streaming radar.
ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cowboys have informed Brandon Weeden he's been benched for Matt Cassel.
It was the obvious call after Weeden comprehensively failed to challenge the Patriots' defense in Sunday's loss. Making the move now gives Cassel two weeks to get ready, as the Cowboys are on bye for Week 6. Cassel will by no means be a major improvement, but has far more experience, and has at least experienced success in the past. Weeden has never been a competent NFL quarterback.
Julio Jones (hamstring) admits he doesn't know if he'll be active for Thursday's game against the Saints.
Coach Dan Quinn has said he "anticipates" Jones playing, but Jones was upfront with reporters about his uncertainty. Jones did say he was "getting better every day," and that he avoided setbacks against the Redskins. He says it's his "plan" to play, but that he simply won't know until Thursday evening. Even at less than 100 percent and on a potential snap count, Jones will be a locked-in WR1 if he suits up.
