Ben Tate suggested that a lack of running lanes is the reason for his brutal two-game stretch.

Over the last two weeks, Tate has rushed 31 times for 62 yards (2.0 YPC). He was aksed if there were any holes against the Raiders last week. "Did you watch the game?" he replied. Tate now has an far tougher matchup against a Jaguars defense that is showing rapid improvement against the run of late. Without C Alex Mack (IR, leg), Tate is just a RB2.

Bucs beat writer Greg Auman sees 10-plus touches for Charles Sims (ankle) Sunday.

It sounds like a lot for a rookie that has been on IR/return all season, but it speaks to the kind of role the Bucs want him to have. Doug Martin (ankle) is in a walking boot and highly questionable, possibly leaving Sims and Bobby Rainey as the top-two backs against the Browns' No. 30 run defense Sunday. "There's no doubt, when (Sims) is ready to go, he will give us a spark," coach Lovie Smith said. "I feel pretty confident in saying that."

Darren Sproles (knee) appears ready to return for Sunday's game at Houston.

Sproles, who was limited in practice before sitting out Week 8, is practicing in full this week. He'll be ready for a bit role against the Texans, likely something in the neighborhood of 5-7 touches. It's not a drain on LeSean McCoy's projection at all.

Doctors do not know yet if Dennis Pitta (hip surgery) will play football again.

It's been five weeks since Pitta went under the knife to repair his second dislocated and fractured hip. "In a few months, we'll see how I'm feeling and how things are going, and we'll be able to make some determinations then," he said. Pitta, 29, signed a five-year, $32.5 million contract with $16 million guaranteed in February of this year.

New Jets starter Michael Vick says he has "to play with some type of control."

After relieving Geno Smith against the Bills last week, Vick committed three turnovers in three quarters. "Last week, I got too greedy," he said Wednesday. "I was trying to play like a 24-year-old Mike Vick." We don't expect Vick to shed his turnover- or injury-prone label, but he does have some fantasy upside thanks to his still dominant legs. Ideally, streamers will use him in a Week 10 home game against the Steelers rather than at Arrowhead against the Chiefs Sunday. Note that while starting for the Eagles in the first four games of last season, Vick averaged 270.0 pass yards, 57.0 rush yards and 1.7 total touchdowns per game. He knows this Marty Mornhinweg offense well after their time together in Philly.

Mark Ingram said he feels good despite the short recovery time ahead of Thursday's game against Carolina.

We're always a little leery of players in the Thursday games, especially running backs who touched the ball 25 times the previous Sunday. But the spot is right again for Ingram as Pierre Thomas is out and Khiry Robinson is highly questionable, leaving Ingram to carry the load against a Panthers team that is giving up 5.22 YPC to opposing running backs. He's a borderline RB1 option.

Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is not even on the Week 9 injury report.

Patterson lightly bruised his left ankle in last week's win at Tampa, but it's obviously not a concern. He's trending up this week after seeing a season-high 12 targets and coming up with an encouraging 6-86-0 line. The Redskins are primed for a letdown after upsetting Dallas on Monday night.
Oct 30 - 8:52 AM

Jaguars LT Luke Joeckel (concussion) has been cleared for non-contact work.

Joeckel still has some steps to get through in the concussion protocol, but has not been ruled out of Sunday's game at Cincy.
