Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7.

Zeke's restraining order, apparently issued by a "fill-in" judge, is for 14 days. He will have to make his case to judge Judge Katherine Fallia when she returns from vacation "before or by Oct. 30." Unbelievable. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8. His long-term prospects remain clear as mud, but fantasy owners have at least one more game to get their fantasy backfield in order. Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris won't be playable this week.

49ers placed DE Arik Armstead (broken hand) on injured reserve.

The 49ers tipped their hand earlier Tuesday, signing DL Tony McDaniel and Leger Douzable. Armstead will presumably be a candidate for return, but he'll have to sit out eight games first, meaning he can't return until Week 16. At that point, the 49ers might not bother. The No. 17 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Armstead was off to a solid start this season, plugging the run and providing some pass rush. Things are in danger of getting really ugly for the rebuilding 49ers.

Bills signed WR Deonte Thompson.

RB Joe Banyard was released in a corresponding roster move. Cut by the Bears last Wednesday, Thompson has 11 receptions in five games this season. He should see immediate snaps for the Bills' laughably-thin receiver corps.
Oct 17 - 6:33 PM

Saints promoted RB Daniel Lasco from the practice squad.

Lasco will slide in behind Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and Trey Edmunds. Lasco appeared in seven games in 2016, notching 11 carries.

Colts RB Robert Turbin (arm) will miss the remainder of the season.

Turbin's left arm got bent in sickening fashion against the Titans on Monday. He had handled a season-high seven touches before going down. Turbin was struggling behind Frank Gore, averaging 2.30 yards on his 23 carries. Two months shy of his 28th birthday, Turbin is signed for $1 million next season. His loss will create more opportunities for promising rookie Marlon Mack.

Redskins signed K Nick Rose.

Rose is replacing Dustin Hopkins, who has been sent to injured reserve with a hip issue. A 2016 UDFA out of Texas, Rose has never appeared in a regular season game. He was a 71.1 percent field goal kicker in the Big 12.

Redskins placed K Dustin Hopkins (hip) on injured reserve.

Hopkins is apparently a candidate for return. He has to miss a minimum of eight games. In the meantime, he will be replaced by 2016 UDFA Nick Rose. The Redskins' kicker since 2015, Hopkins has been an 84 percent field goal kicker, and converted 5-of-13 kicks of 50 yards or longer. 2017 is the final year of his contract.
Oct 17 - 5:53 PM

Giants placed DE Romeo Okwara on injured reserve with a sprained MCL.

He suffered the injury in practice last week. The 2016 UDFA had played just 78 snaps so far this season after starting four games as a rookie.
