Giants coach Ben McAdoo said fifth-round RB Paul Perkins "is ready to step up."

Sep 27 - 10:36 AM

Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he is "still working through some things."

Eifert added he is trying to patient and trust the process. The tight end returned to practice last week and coach Marvin Lewis has said he is "close" to returning, but these comments make it seem like he is still a week away. That would make sense with the Bengals playing on Thursday night. Even if Eifert suits up, he is expected to be on a snap count.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill reports Dez Bryant (knee) is expected to undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Owner Jerry Jones said on the radio Tuesday morning Bryant had not undergone an MRI, but he did leave open the possibility he would have one later in the day. It looks like the test will happen, but the fact they have waited suggests there is not much concern. At this point, Bryant should still be expected to play.

Matt Ryan said his thumb is "fine."

Ryan appeared to suffer a thumb injury on his non-throwing hand against the Saints Monday night. He did not miss any snaps, but he did play the rest of the game with a glove on his left hand. "I took a hit on it in the game, but I'm fine," Ryan said. "Put a glove on just to make sure I'd get a good grip afterwards. But I'm fine. I feel pretty good." He should be good to go for a tough matchup with the Panthers this week.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Dez Bryant (knee) has not undergone an MRI and is expected to play this week against the 49ers.

Jones conceded Dez could have an MRI this week, but it does not sound like the team is concerned about his knee injury. His status for this week will become clearer after Wednesday's practice, but for now he should be expected to play. Dez will be a WR1 in a great matchup against the 49ers.

Sporting News' Alex Marvez reports the 49ers are sticking with Blaine Gabbert in part because he is better in practice than Colin Kaepernick.

Coach Chip Kelly insinuated Kaepernick could be given a shot to start when he is "100 percent." He was almost certainly talking about health, but Kaepernick could also still be behind with the playbook after sitting out most of the offseason. Neither of these quarterbacks is the answer, but the 49ers should at least give Kap a shot before the end of the season.

The New York Post expects Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin) to miss some time.

Rodgers-Cromartie was reportedly moving gingerly around the locker room after exiting the Week 3 loss to the Redskins. With Eli Apple (hamstring) and Darian Thompson (foot) also likely to sit out this week, the Giants are getting thin in the secondary.
Sep 27 - 9:20 AM

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein said "don't be surprised" if Dwayne Washington gets more work this week against the Bears.

Coach Jim Caldwell blamed the line for Theo Riddick's struggles against the Packers, so they clearly have not given up the idea a career 3-YPC back handling the early-down work. Still, Washington was notably better as a runner against the Packers, and he should take on a bigger role soon enough. He already matched Riddick with 10 carries last week. Washington will be an upside FLEX play against the Bears.
