The New York Daily News reports that the Jets will attempt to trade Mark Sanchez this offseason.

Good luck with that, Jets. As we've gone over and pounded into the heads of everyone over the past few weeks, Sanchez is owed $8.25 million in guaranteed money next year. The Jets would certainly have to eat that money in order to pull off a deal, while the other team would have to pay Sanchez roughly $3 million. New York would be extremely fortunate to even get a late-round pick in exchange for the former No. 5 overall pick turned third-stringer. Cutting him seems more likely, and that would bring on a $17.1 million cap hit.

Speaking Thursday, coach Jay Gruden confirmed Robert Griffin III (ankle) will be the Redskins' Week 9 starter, barring setbacks.

Gruden believes his quarterback is "100 percent" physically. Getting in a "full" practice on Thursday, RGIII took the "majority" of the first-team reps over Colt McCoy after splitting them on Wednesday. Griffin is a monster upgrade over McCoy and Kirk Cousins, but sidelined since Week 2 and a questionable fit for the offense Gruden insists on running, he should be considered a wait-and-see QB2 for Week 9 despite his considerable upside.

A.J. Green (toe) participated in Thursday's practice.

It will likely be another "limited" session for the long-sidelined receiver, but it's another step in the direction for his Week 9 status. Even if Green practices again on Friday, he's likely trending toward a game-time decision, but owners can be cautiously optimistic he'll suit up. CIN/JAX kicks off at 1ET, so thankfully we'll have a Green answer no later than 11:30 AM ET.

Giovani Bernard (hip) is not practicing again Thursday.

Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site says "you have to figure he's going to be out." That would leave Jeremy Hill as the feature back against the Jags Sunday, with Cedric Peerman and possibly Rex Burkhead mixing in. We have no details on the severity of Bernard's injury right now, other than that it's a hip pointer. All owners can do is sit tight and hope they were handcuffing properly with Hill, who could very well push for 20 touches Sunday.

Chargers CB Jason Verrett has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Verrett, the first-round rookie who has been excellent opposite Brandon Flowers, is out 2-3 weeks. After that, he'll be reevaluated with surgery an option if inflammation doesn't go down. It's a bit troubling as Verrett also had a medical red flag on him during the draft process after a labrum repair. The Chargers defense is turning into one we'd attack more often than shy away from when evaluating matchups.
Oct 30 - 12:43 PM

RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) and CB Vontae Davis (knee) are practicing Thursday.

Richardson was active in Week 8, but only as an emergency back behind Ahmad Bradshaw and Boom Herron. This week, he's on track for a much bigger role in Monday night's game against the Giants. Richardson was averaging 17.1 touches per game through the first seven weeks. Davis' ability to practice is bad news for Eli Manning and the Giants' wideouts, as Davis has emerged as a legit dominator on the perimeter.
Oct 30 - 12:10 PM

Coach Jason Garrett said Thursday he's "certainly" optimistic Tony Romo (back) can play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Romo did not participate in the Thursday morning walkthrough and is unlikely to practice much -- if at all - this week. However, he doesn't have any structural damage in his back and we've seen him play through all kinds of pain before, often taking pre-game injections. Ultimately, owners should expect a game-time call ahead of the 1pm ET matchup against a leaky Cardinals secondary.
Oct 30 - 11:42 AM

Rashad Jennings (knee) will not play in Monday's game against the Colts.

Jennings rehab from a Week 5 MCL sprain is not going as expected -- he hasn't even resumed practicing yet. We'll consider him questionable for Week 10. In the meantime, rookie Andre Williams will try to rebound from two ineffective and disappointing starts prior to the bye. Showing a lack of vision and a tendency to run to contact, Williams will only be a borderline 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."
Oct 30 - 9:47 AM

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.
Oct 30 - 9:36 AM

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.
Oct 30 - 9:30 AM

NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini reports Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start Week 9 against the Vikings.

Russini has had some good info nuggets and been first on all-things Redskins multiple times this season. RGIII practiced in full on Wednesday, with multiple teammates saying he looked like his old self. But coach Jay Gruden has continued to say they won't rush RGIII back until he's 100 percent healthy and ready. That time appears to be now. Colt McCoy can ride high on his Monday night win over the Cowboys for the next few months. Gruden should name a starter Thursday or Friday. Signs continue to point to it being RGIII.
