Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said rookie RE DeMarcus Lawrence (foot, I.R./recall) should be activated for the team's Week 9 tilt with Arizona.
Lawrence began practicing last week, and has reportedly "looked really good" in workouts. He will be asked to bolster a pass-rushing unit that has only notched seven sacks this season.
The NFL Network's Albert Breer reports A.J. Green (toe) is unlikely to play against the Ravens Week 8.
Green did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. Breer reports Green is dealing with "lingering" ligament damage under his big toe, and he expects the Bengals to be careful with the injury. Green should be viewed as questionable for Week 9.
Jaguars waived WR Tavarres King.
A 2013 fifth-round pick, King has now been released by three teams in two seasons. King's combination of size and speed will likely land him on someone's practice squad. The Jaguars signed CB Peyton Thompson in a corresponding move. Thompson will serve as insurance in case Dwayne Gratz (hip) cannot play.
Titans RB Shonn Greene was arrested for fleeing the scene of a parking incident on Friday night.
Greene was parked in a handicap parking space in Franklin, Tennessee on Friday evening. When a parking enforcement officer tried to issue Greene a ticket, he got into his car, maneuvered around the officer's vehicle and left the scene. Greene was charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk. Green turned himself in Friday night after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest, and was released after posting a $2,000 bond. His status for Sunday's game against the Texans is unknown.
Raiders activated CB D.J. Haden (foot) off the PUP list.
He is eligible to play against the Browns Week 8. Hayden missed all of training camp with a stress fracture in his foot. Coming off an injury-marred rookie campaign, the 2013 first-round pick needs to prove he can stay healthy down the stretch this season.
Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team will not force the ball to Jordan Cameron.
"If he’s open in the read and the ball gets thrown to him, he needs to catch it," Pettine said, "but we’re not going to force a ball to somebody." Cameron has seen 5.2 targets a game this year after seeing the ball come his way 7.9 times a contest last season. He has also been far less efficient, catching just 38% of his targets on the season. Cameron has the talent to turn it around, but he will need more consistent targets and more consistent quarterback play to regain top-five tight end status.
Calais Campbell is listed as questionable for Week 8 with a knee injury.
Campbell has been sidelined two games with a strained MCL. Coach Bruce Arians called him a game-time decision, though Campbell said if it was up to him, he would be playing.
Vikings LB Gerald Hodges is listed as doubtful for Week 8 with a hamstring injury.
Hodges has got in limited sessions on Thursday and Friday, but appears unlikely to play. Chad Greenway has regained his starting job at weak-side linebacker, racking up 15 tackles in last week's loss to Buffalo.
