Darren Sproles (knee) is practicing Tuesday.

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.

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.

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.

Broncos signed RB Kapri Bibbs off their practice squad.

LB Shaquil Barrett was waived in a corresponding move, meaning the Broncos now have four running backs on their 53-man roster. It might be a case of the Broncos wanting to prevent another team from signing Bibbs.
