Bears RG Kyle Long left Thursday's Week 7 game against the Packers with an arm injury and is questionable to return.
He exited in the second quarter. Long has been playing through a torn labrum in his shoulder, but this injury appears to be separate from that. Ted Larsen has entered the game at right guard.
Don Jackson left Thursday's Week 7 game against the Bears with a left hand injury and is questionable to return.
Oh brother. Jackson went to the locker room in the second quarter but was seen on the sidelines flexing his hand a few minutes later. He logged only two carries for six yards before exiting. With Jackson sidelined, the Packers are now down to just one healthy running back. Knile Davis and receiver-turned-halfback Ty Montgomery will handle the rushing load in Jackson's stead.
Brian Hoyer left Thursday's Week 7 game against the Packers with a left arm injury and will not return.
Matt Barkley (yes, he's still around) has entered the game. Hoyer went down in the second quarter after taking a huge hit from Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews. He was favoring his left arm/wrist on his way to the locker room and is now headed for X-rays. Hoyer was having a rough night before the injury with just four completions and 49 yards passing on 11 attempts. He didn't throw any touchdowns or interceptions.
ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Latavius Murray (toe) is expected to play against the Jaguars in Week 7.
Murray is set to return after sitting out two games with turf toe. Reduced to a committee role, Murray has averaged just 10 carries per game this year. Given the uncertain nature of Oakland's backfield, fantasy owners would be wise to stay clear of Murray, even in a plus matchup with Jacksonville.
Giants signed K Robbie Gould.
Released by the Bears ahead of Week 1, Gould is Chicago's all-time leading scorer and one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, despite kicking half of his games in the Windy City. He replaces wife-beater Josh Brown, who the Giants left in the States on Thursday as they travel to London to face the Rams. Gould should be the Giants' kicker for the remainder of the season, though the Giants continue to drag their feet in refusing to cut Brown.
According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal, the Browns have had "preliminary" talks with Terrelle Pryor about a contract extension.
The Browns would prefer to lock Pryor up long-term rather than letting him hit the open market this offseason. So far Pryor's transition from quarterback to wide receiver has been a rousing success. He leads the Browns in every major receiving category and is on pace for over 1,000 yards. The Ohio State alum turned 27 in June.
John Brown (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.
We're not sure how or when Brown got hurt, but his status for Week 7 is definitely up in the air. Returning to a limited practice on Friday would go a long way to assuage our concerns. Even so, Brown has a less than ideal matchup against the Seahawks this week and is probably no better than a WR4 for fantasy purposes.
Updating an earlier report, Carson Palmer (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.
Palmer wasn't wearing a helmet at the start of practice but he did do some light throwing. As of now, there's no concern about his status for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. Playing at less than 100 percent, Palmer will be a tough sell as a QB1 against the Legion of Boom.
