Bears signed WR Dale Moss, OGs Derek Dennis and Chris Riley, CB Isaiah Frey, TE Gabe Miller, DE Cheta Ozougwu and DE Aston Whiteside to reserve/future contracts.

The minimum-salary deals will lock these players onto the Bears' offseason roster and they'll hope to make it to training camp to compete for a roster spot. Moss is the most intriguing prospect of the group. A former basketball player at South Dakota State, Moss is a big-time athlete with some potential.

Coach Jay Gruden wouldn't rule out Robert Griffin III (ankle) returning for Week 8.

In the outside chance Griffin looks "great" in practice this week, top beat writer John Keim expects him to get the nod on Monday night against Dallas. If not, it's expected to be Colt McCoy under center. Kirk Cousins has played his way off the map with nine interceptions in the last five games. Griffin was not playing well in Jay Gruden's pocket-passer scheme prior to his injury, but is on the QB1 map anytime he starts due to dual-threat ability. RG3 is a must-add for anyone in need of quarterback help.

Fred Jackson was told his groin injury typically comes with a four-week timetable.

Jackson says he'll try to beat that timetable and hasn't ruled himself out of returning for Week 10. But given the severity of his injury and how difficult it is for running backs to overcome soft-tissue pulls, Week 11 or 12 seems more realistic. His adductor longus pulled off the bone about a centimeter. Jackson remains a hold for owners if possible, especially with tasty matchups against the Packers and Raiders in Weeks 15 and 16. C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is out for the year.

When asked if Denard Robinson will keep the feature back job, coach Gus Bradley said, "Yeah, I think so."

Coaches are loathe to make depth chart declarations, especially right after games. But Bradley had to at least suggest he'd give it up for Shoelace after a 22-127-1 outing as the starter. When Toby Gerhart returns from his foot injury, he'll slide into a complementary role along with Storm Johnson. Gerhart has been a drop candidate in 10- and 12-team leagues for a few weeks now.

Peyton Manning completed 22-of-26 passes for 318 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday night's 42-17 win over the 49ers.

Manning broke Brett Favre's career touchdown record with an eight-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter. He picked apart an injured 49ers secondary, finishing with just four incompletions. With the Broncos playing on a short turnaround next week, Manning was rested for Brock Osweiler in the fourth quarter. He's now up to 1,848 yards, 19 touchdowns, and three interceptions through six games. The Broncos take on the Chargers in Week 8.

Odell Beckham caught four passes for 34 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

In the first game since Victor Cruz's season-ending knee injury, Beckham impressed by playing just about every snap and operating all over the formation. His first touchdown came on a pretty route in which he roasted Brandon Carr for a 9-yard score. The second score was out of slot, as the rookie sat down in a zone and Eli Manning found him from five yards out. With explosive change-of-direction ability and strong hands, Beckham is quickly becoming a favorite of Eli. The only bad note is that the Giants have tough matchups after the bye: IND, SEA, SF.

Jamaal Charles rushed 22 times for 95 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Week 7 win over the Chargers, adding two catches for an additional 12 yards.

In the process, Charles passed Priest Holmes to become the Chiefs' all-time leading rusher. Holmes managed 6,070 yards on the ground as a Chief. Charles is now at 6,113. Charles took a thundering, mid-air hit from former teammate Brandon Flowers on his touchdown, but it was Flowers who ended up leaving the game with a concussion. Charles gets the Rams' soft run defense in Week 8.

Andre Ellington rushed 24 times for 88 yards and caught six balls for 72 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 win over the Raiders.

After struggling a bit in the first half -- 10-34 on the ground -- Ellington was late coming out of the tunnel for the third quarter, reportedly nursing a rib injury. Stepfan Taylor started the second half and ran well before Ellington reentered to drop a critical third-down pass. Ellington retook his featured role for most of the final two quarters, putting Arizona's offense on his back on a highly productive third-quarter drive. Unfortunately, he was vultured by Taylor twice inside the Oakland five-yard line, as Taylor scored a two-yard rushing TD in addition to a four-yard receiving score on a speed out. Ellington missed snaps on the Cardinals' clock-killing possession late in the fourth quarter with cramping, but did return. He'll be a borderline RB1 when the Cardinals take on the Eagles in Week 8.
Oct 19 - 7:29 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed 28 times for 128 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 31-21 Week 7 win over the Giants.

Murray gave owners a scare when he rolled both of his ankles on a first-half run, but he returned and looked 100 percent. He's now gone over 100 yards in each of the season's first seven games, an NFL record. He's also on pace for an NFL record 427 carries along with 2,086 yards and 16 touchdowns. With Jermey Parnell handling himself well in place of RT Doug Free (ankle), this ridiculously dominant offense line will continue to let Murray eat weekly. He's a great bet to keep the 100-yard streak alive against the Redskins on Monday Night Football in Week 8.

A source tells PFT that C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is out for the season.

Spiller will have surgery Monday to repair a broken collarbone sustained in Sunday's win over the Vikings. It's awful timing, as he was just about to get a big chance with Fred Jackson suffering a serious groin injury. Instead, Spiller's wildly frustrating contract-year season ends with 69 carries for 287 yards (4.15 YPC) and zero rushing touchdowns in seven games. Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon will move forward as the Bills' top-two backs.
Oct 19 - 6:57 PM

The Redskins fear OLB Brian Orakpo sustained a partially torn right pectoral in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Orakpo is going for an MRI Monday. Note that he tore his left pectoral in the 2011 regular season finale and then reinjured it in Week 2 of the 2012 season. Orakpo is playing on a one-year, $11.45M franchise tag.

A source tells ESPN that Brandon Marshall called out Jay Cutler following Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

The Bears have lost three of their last four games and frustration is boiling over. Yelling could be heard from outside the locker room after the loss. The source told ESPN "there are some very selfish individuals in the locker room." Note that Marshall finished with 6-48-0 on 10 targets, but was barely involved at all in the first half. Former Bromance partner Cutler had his worst game of the season, throwing for just 190 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
