Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks (calf) is practicing Tuesday.

Kendricks has been out since Week 2, leaving a gaping hole in the Eagles defense. A rising stud, Kendricks is their best cover linebacker.
Oct 21 - 12:17 PM

Darren Sproles (knee) is practicing Tuesday.

Sproles is ahead of schedule as he comes off a sprained MCL. He has full medical clearance from the training staff, putting him on track to suit up at Arizona Sunday. Of course, fantasy owners should note is averaging just 5.5 touches per game in his last four outings.
Oct 21 - 12:15 PM

Markus Wheaton played on a season-low 31-of-67 snaps (46.2 percent) in Monday's win over the Texans.

Wheaton's downright poor play has gotten him demoted after opening the season as the every-down "X." The Steelers finally gave rookie Martavis Bryant (24 snaps) a shot and he responded with 2-40-1 on five targets. Wheaton, who was not targeted at all, can be dropped in most formats.
Oct 21 - 12:07 PM

Giants worked out free agent RB Felix Jones.

It's a standard bye-week workout, but raises some concern about Rashad Jennings' (knee) status. The Giants also worked out free agent RB Alex Green on Tuesday.
Oct 21 - 11:46 AM

Bucs waived WR/KR Solomon Patton.

Patton is no longer needed after the Bucs signed Trindon Holliday. He appeared in six games as the primary return man. Patton could be re-signed to the practice squad.
Oct 21 - 11:34 AM

Denard Robinson played 46-of-74 snaps in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Storm Johnson was on the field for 10 snaps in a change-of-pace role. Jordan Todman remained Jacksonville's third-down back, getting 19 snaps. Robinson is expected to keep the starting job going forward, with Toby Gerhart likely to be a complementary option with Johnson when he returns. Robinson is one of the top waiver-adds for Week 8. He's a recommended pickup in Yahoo leagues, where he has WR eligibility.
Oct 21 - 11:19 AM

Titans signed RB Antonio Andrews off their practice squad.

Teams are scurrying to protect their developmental backs after a fistful of running backs got hurt Sunday. Andrews will slide in behind Bishop Sankey and maybe Shonn Greene (questionable, hamstring).
Oct 21 - 10:55 AM

Speaking Tuesday morning, A.J. Green (toe) said his Week 8 status is "still up in the air."

On Sunday, Green was overheard telling a teammate he's going to play in Week 8. On Monday, coach Marvin Lewis said the star receiver has made tremendous strides. But Green still needs to get through a full week of practice and figure out how to manage pain. "It's probably not gonna be 100 percent, but I hope it's just manageable," Green said. "I can get through the season and be fine and still play at a high level." We'll consider him day to day for now.
