CSN Philly reports Darren Sproles (knee) "appears likely" to play Week 8 against the Cardinals.

After initially fearing a torn ACL, Sproles says he "felt pretty good" at Tuesday's practice. An MRI last week revealed no structural damage and just a mildly sprained MCL. Arizona is yielding the second-fewest PPR points to opposing running backs. At less than 100 percent and seeing just 5.5 touches per game over the past four, there will be better options than Sproles for your FLEX spot.

Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan said the team plans to use Rueben Randle in the slot more over the final nine weeks of the season with Victor Cruz (knee) done for the year.

"The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Reuben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field," Ryan said. Randle is averaging nearly 10 targets per game the past five weeks, and is the No. 23 overall PPR-scoring wide receiver over the past six. Getting him in the slot is just another way to get the ball in his hands. At 6'3/210, he's a mismatch for smaller nickel corners. Randle has picked up his play and put himself into WR2 consideration. We're just waiting for that "boom" game.

Joseph Fauria (ankle) remains sidelined at Lions practice.

Fauria hurt his ankle at his home ahead of Week 4 and has been out ever since. He remains week-to-week. With Calvin Johnson (ankle) and Eric Ebron (hamstring) also sidelined, Fauria is missing a golden opportunity.

Theo Riddick (hamstring) returned to Lions practice Wednesday.

He missed Week 7 against the Saints. With Reggie Bush (ankle) expecting to play in London vs. the Falcons, Riddick will pick up the scraps as the No. 3 back.

Brandon Pettigrew (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday.

Pettigrew wasn't even spotted on the practice field in London. The Lions have been hit hard at tight end, losing Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) to injuries the past few weeks. Detroit will hope Pettigrew can play Week 8 against Atlanta, or they'll have to turn to Jordan Thompson and Kellen Davis.

Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Ebron missed Week 7 with the pulled hamstring. He isn't shaping up as a "go" this week, either. Brandon Pettigrew (undisclosed) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) also sat out Wednesday's practice, so the Lions may have to turn to Kellen Davis and Jordan Thompson at tight end against the Falcons in London.
Oct 22 - 9:53 AM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Megatron traveled to London for Sunday morning's game against Atlanta, but most believe Johnson won't play, and that he was only brought across the pond to help the NFL's brand in Europe. Johnson resumed running this week, but Week 10, following Detroit's Week 9 bye, appears most likely for a return to the lineup.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) said he's contemplating season-ending surgery, and gave himself a 50-50 chance to play again in 2014.

Beason is in Charlotte visiting Dr. Robert Anderson for at least the third time since initially hurting his foot over summer. "I’m still deciding if the smart thing is to go ahead and get it fixed and get ready for next season," Beason said. He's appeared in parts of four games this season and has yet to make a real impact at less than 100 percent. Jameel McClain has been filling in at MIKE.
