The Manatee County Sheriff's Office lists "Dandre Kirkpatrick" in its arrest logs as having been charged with possession of under 20 grams of marijuana on Tuesday, January 17.

Kirkpatrick, who appears clearly to be Alabama CB Dre Kirkpatrick, is listed at 6-foot-2, 180 and as having been born on the same date (October 26, 1989) as the top-20 draft prospect. The log says Kirkpatrick was bonded out of jail for $120. Kirkpatrick's apparent arrest just over a month before the Combine could remove him from several teams' draft boards. Kirkpatrick did not have any known off-field issues during his three years at Alabama.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said maybe the team "got ahead of ourselves" in Kelvin Benjamin's recovery from an ACL tear this offseason.

"Maybe we did get him out there too soon, too much," Rivera said. Benjamin has not been spectacular, but he has actually caught a larger percentage of his targets and averaged more yards per catch this year than his rookie season. He also is dealing with a shoulder injury which likely has nothing to do with being pushed back "too soon." The Panthers will look for answers after this lost season, but Benjamin has been fine.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Jordan Matthews (ankle) should return to practice Wednesday.

Matthews was able to get in a limited practice last Thursday, but he was held out on Friday after getting "a little sore." A return Wednesday would tentatively put Matthews on track to play, but another setback cannot be ruled out. Devoid of reliable weapons in the passing game, the Eagles need Matthews healthy as soon as possible.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Ryan Mathews (knee) is expected to practice Wednesday.

Mathews has missed the last two games with an MCL sprain. A practice Wednesday would put him on track to play against the Redskins, but Pederson said just last week the injury "could linger." Mathews should be considered questionable.

ESPN's Pat McManamon wrote "all signs point" to Robert Griffin III getting the start this week.

Hue Jackson has yet to name a starter, and McManamon's prediction comes with the important caveat of "provided he makes it through practice and looks like he has shaken off three months of rust." Still, it makes sense for the Browns to see what Griffin can do, especially considering they averaged fewer than 10 points in their last four games. Even if Griffin gets the nod, the offense around him is too poor and the chance of an in-game injury is too high to trust him in the first-round of the playoffs.

Doug Martin (back?) said he was "doing fine" after sitting out the final three drives Week 13 against the Chargers.

Martin said he was "bent back" late in the game, and that is why he sat out. Coach Dirk Koetter also said the running back was fine after the game. It looks like Martin will be healthy enough to play this week against the Saints, but his workload is suddenly in question, especially with Charles Sims (knee, injured reserve) potentially returning.

Denver 7's Troy Renck reports there is "hope" Trevor Siemian (foot) will play this week.

Renck reports Siemian's foot "has improved" since last week. He will be evaluated on Monday. The Broncos got the win against Jacksonville, but they won despite Paxton Lynch. With a tougher test against Tennessee on tap, the Broncos need Siemian on the field if possible.

Thomas Rawls had 15 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns and caught one pass for 12 yards in Seattle's Week 13 win over the Panthers.

Rawls did all his damage early, with just three of his yards coming after halftime. Both of his touchdowns were highlight runs. Rawls hurdled into end-zone from eight yards out for his first score, and made a nice cut outside for a 45-yard TD. The Seahawks briefly checked Rawls for a concussion but he only missed a few series. Even with a matchup against the Packers run defense, Rawls is a borderline RB1 for Week 14.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera told NBC that Cam Newton's one-play benching on Sunday was the result of a "dress code violation."

Rivera cost his team three points because Newton didn't wear a tie (seriously). Derek Anderson's tipped-ball interception on the game's opening play was a "ball don't lie" if there ever was one. Rivera likely snapped after a year of Russell Westbrook-esque fashion offenses from Newton following games. We're guessing the ol' ball coach won't make the same mistake twice.

Thomas Rawls left Week 13 against the Panthers with a possible concussion.

Rawls went to the locker room after a helmet to helmet hit late in the second quarter. He passed the league's protocol and returned after halftime.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas was carted off with a cracked tibia in Week 13 against the Panthers.

Thomas went down on a low collision with SS Kam Chancellor. He was trying to intercept a pass from Cam Newton on the play. Thomas had to be carried off the field and was later carted off. He's likely out for the season and playoffs. Thomas is a candidate to be placed on IR next week.

Doug Martin said after Sunday's win over the Chargers that he missed the Bucs' final three drives because he got "bent back" late in the game.

This is the extent of the information available on why Martin didn't play on the Bucs' final three drives. The Bucs turned to Jacquizz Rodgers, who finished with nine touches and handled all of Tampa Bay's clock-killing carries in Sunday's 28-21 road-game win. We suspect Martin will be fine for Week 14.
