Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt expressed displeasure with Bishop Sankey after the rookie ran out of bounds late in Sunday's loss to Washington.
The Titans were trying to salt clock and wound up losing the game. Sankey also had a critical drop on a screen pass that would've gone for a first down and then some. Sankey has been far from perfect during his rookie year, but he's still Tennessee's best option when everyone is healthy. Sankey will continue to be an RB3/flex when the Titans take on the Texans in Week 8.
Coach Jay Gruden announced Monday he is planning to start Colt McCoy at quarterback in Week 8 against the Cowboys.
NBC's Dianna Marie Russini passes along that Robert Griffin III (ankle) "has been medically cleared to add to his workload," but the plan for now is to give McCoy the nod. After facing the Cowboys, the Redskins will play the Vikings in Week 9. That seems like Griffin's earliest-possible return date. In a home game against noodle-armed career journeyman backup McCoy, Dallas' fantasy defense will be worth a look as a Week 8 streamer.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt reiterated Monday that Jake Locker (thumb) remains the Titans' starting quarterback when healthy.
Per Whisenhunt, the plan is for Locker to throw on Tuesday and the Titans will "see how he responds Wednesday." Whiz said after Sunday's loss to the Redskins that he "would expect" Locker to return in Week 8 against the Texans, although there are clearly no guarantees. Locker has been an utter NFL bust.
Giants MLB Jon Beason will visit Dr. Robert Anderson regarding his latest toe injury this week.
As beat writer Jordan Raanan notes, "not good." In Sunday's loss to Dallas, Beason aggravated a toe injury that has plagued him since training camp. The Giants signed Beason to a new three-year, $16.8 million contract in March.
Donald Brown (concussion) would not have participated had the Chargers held a practice on Monday.
Brown can safely be ruled out for Thursday night's tilt with Denver.
Had the Chargers held a practice on Monday, Ryan Mathews (MCL) would not have participated.
Mathews isn't going to play on Thursday night, and his status is unclear for Week 9 as well. Branden Oliver will remain the feature back against Denver.
Ravens LS Morgan Cox is done for the year with a torn ACL.
Cox also tore his left ACL and MCL back in 2010. The Ravens will move forward with former 49er Kevin McDermott as their deep snapper.
Trent Richardson is undergoing an MRI on his hamstring ailment.
T-Rich has been openly optimistic regarding his injury, but the Colts won't know his status for sure until the MRI comes back. Indy plays the Steelers next.
