Cedric Peerman (ankle) did not practice on Monday.

The Bengals likely just had a walk-through on Monday after playing yesterday, but on a short week, it seems unlikely that Peerman will be back for this Thursday's tilt with the Eagles. BenJarvus Green-Ellis will carry a full load with Brian Leonard spelling him on third downs.

Martellus Bennett (hamstring) returned to Bears practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

The Unicorn is now on track for Week 8. Bennett hasn't found the end zone since Week 3, but has continued to rack up yards and receptions. With Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery both likely to draw attention from Darrelle Revis on Sunday, Bennett is a decent bet to score his fifth touchdown.

Owen Daniels (knee) remained out of Ravens practice Thursday.

Daniels' Wednesday absence wasn't a concern as he's been getting "veteran days" all season, but his Week 8 prospects are now a bit muddled. It's still most likely that the Ravens are just taking it easy on Daniels as he nurses a minor injury, but his status can't be taken for granted. The situation will be updated on Friday.

A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined at Bengals practice Thursday.

Green continued to work on a side field, but he's not looking good for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Owners have to plan on their WR1 missing one more week of action.

Reggie Wayne (elbow) is not practicing again Thursday.

Wayne was on the sideline in sweats watching his teammates practice. His injury is not serious by any means, but the Colts could play it safe and hold him out of Sunday's game anyway. Wayne's legs certainly looked like they could use a day off as he dead-legged his way to 4-15-0 against the Bengals last week. Griff Whalen, Hakeem Nicks and Donte Moncrief would likely all chop up Wayne's 8.8 targets per game if the veteran sits.

Coach Jay Gruden would "guarantee...most likely" that Robert Griffin III (ankle) returns for the Week 11 game against the Bucs.

There's still a chance Griffin returns for Week 9 at Minnesota, but holding him out through the Week 10 bye is firmly on Gruden's radar. "You've got a good bye week, you've got a couple weeks to make sure it's ready. ... You know, it's a very difficult position to play, and just because he's healthy, he hasn't taken a meaningful rep in about six weeks," Gruden said. All we know right now is that Colt McCoy will almost certainly start in Dallas on Monday night, making the Cowboys an excellent D/ST streamer.

Reggie Bush (ankle) is not practicing Thursday.

It's a troublesome downgrade from Wednesday, when Bush was a limited participant. It's clear he's nowhere near over his ankle injury after it caused him to sit out in Week 6 and barely play in the second half of Week 7. If Bush can't go against the Falcons, Joique Bell gets a boost and Theo Riddick (questionable, hamstring) would get set for a real role. Note that inactives for this early London game will be coming down at 8:30am ET.
Oct 23 - 9:52 AM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) is practicing on a limited basis Thursday and suggested a decision on his status could go to Sunday morning.

A day after getting limited work in, Johnson was encouragingly back cutting and running routes. "We're doing everything from straight-forward running to moving laterally as well," he said. "Things are going good. We're moving in a positive direction." We still suspect it makes tons of sense to hold Megatron out of this game and let him rest through the bye, but the Lions aren't tipping their hand yet. This game will kick off in the afternoon in London, meaning word on Johnson's status might not come down until roughly 8:30am ET.

Kyle Rudolph (sports hernia) participated in the team stretch Wednesday for the first time since his late-September surgery.

After stretching, Rudolph did some running on the side with trainers. It's not much, but it is a bit of progress for a player that was hit with a 6-8 week timetable following his surgery. Owners in need of tight end help should start thinking about a stash soon as Rudolph could realistically be back immediately after the Week 10 bye. The red-zone dominator was lining up in the slot a ton before going down.

Toby Gerhart (foot) "appears" ready to return for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Gerhart is practicing on a limited basis this week and said he feels "pretty good" after taking the last two weeks off. However, his role is more uncertain than ever after Denard Robinson put a 22-127-1 line on the Browns last week. "I think we'll continue to mix and match a little bit," said OC Jedd Fisch. "I don't know exactly how that will all play out yet." We'd expect Robinson to start, but he's going to find the sledding very tough against an excellent Dolphins front. Gerhart will be a complementary early-down piece and Jordan Todman will handle a lot of third downs. It's not a terribly high-upside situation.

The Nashville Tennessean reports the Titans will start sixth-round rookie Zach Mettenberger at quarterback in Week 8 against the Texans.

Having already lost hope for the 2014 season, the Titans will start playing their pups. Injury-prone, contract-year quarterback Jake Locker has been formally demoted. It's believed Mettenberger was informed of coach Ken Whisenhunt's decision to start him on Tuesday night, which perhaps explains why none of Tennessee's quarterbacks were allowed to speak with the media on Wednesday. A strong-armed LSU product albeit with zero mobility, Mettenberger will make his first NFL start against J.J. Watt's Texans in a home game. With Jadeveon Clowney (knee) tentatively due back this week, the Houston defense is worth a look as a Week 8 streamer.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams have been calling the Titans about Nate Washington's availability.

This unofficially translates to, "We, the Titans, would love to trade Nate Washington." Already demoted in favor of Justin Hunter, Washington is just taking up roster and cap space on Tennessee's 53, and could probably be had for a conditional seventh-round pick. Unfortunately for the Titans, Washington has a guaranteed $4.8 million base salary and isn't worth half that much. They'd be lucky to get a bag of punctured footballs for him.
