Falcons signed OC Dirk Koetter to a two-year contract extension.

Scratch one of the hottest coordinator candidates off the board. Koetter met with the Chiefs on Tuesday and was also scheduled for interviews with the Browns and Eagles. But he's decided to stay in Atlanta, a coup for a Falcons offense that ranked seventh in points per game and sixth in passing yards. Continuity in a creative and effective scheme can only be a good thing for the likes of Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Roddy White.

Colts GM Chris Ballard said Andrew Luck has experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired right (throwing) shoulder and will not practice this week.

This qualifies as a significant setback, no matter how the Colts try and spin it. Luck practiced the past two weeks and appeared to be knocking on the door of playing sometime soon. He's now again out indefinitely, leaving Jacoby Brissett the starter for the next few weeks and further dropping the floors of T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. The Colts' bye week comes Week 11.

Robby Anderson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Anderson went down late in the fourth quarter on a deep-ball chuck from Josh McCown. Prior to that, Anderson caught 4-of-12 targets for 76 yards against New England. If Anderson sits, it'll be Jermaine Kearse, Jeremy Kerley, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and Matt Forte catching the balls against Miami.

Bilal Powell (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Powell stretched with the team but didn't do much of anything after that. It's a similar situation to last week for Powell, who ended up sitting Week 6. In his absence, Matt Forte totaled 81 yards on 17 touches, while Elijah McGuire filled change-up duties. It could be the same thing this week in Miami.
Oct 18 - 3:46 PM

Kelvin Benjamin (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Benjamin battled a knee issue earlier this season but hadn't been on the injury report for the past two games. He reportedly had to leave practice early Wednesday, which is a small concern right now. If for some reason Benjamin would have to sit against the Bears, Devin Funchess would be a volume WR2.
Oct 18 - 2:47 PM

Demaryius Thomas (leg) is not practicing Wednesday.

He's dealing with some sort of bruise. It was likely more of a rest day for Thomas, who is fully expected to play Sunday against the Chargers. With no Emmanuel Sanders (ankle), Thomas should dominate targets.
Oct 18 - 2:32 PM

Stefon Diggs (groin) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Diggs didn't practice at all last week before being inactive and is off on the wrong foot for Week 7. In his absence, Laquon Treadwell acted as the No. 2 receiver, while the offense ran through Adam Thielen and Jerick McKinnon.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Thielen took advantage of his opportunity last weekend, coming down with 9 receptions for 97 yards. He may have a better matchup than it appears on paper against the Ravens this weekend as he'll battle Ladarius Webb in the slot. When inside, Webb is allowing the most yards per cover snap (2.11, per PFF) and a 68% catch rate. As a unit, Baltimore is holding passers to the 2nd-lowest completion percentage (53.6%), 4th-lowest rating (71.1), and 5th-fewest yards per game (190). With the rest of the secondary playing so well, QB Case Keenum will likely need to pepper Thielen with targets all game, providing him some potentially sneaky GPP appeal.
Oct 18 - 2:21 PM

DeVante Parker (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Coach Adam Gase said earlier Wednesday that Parker remains day to day. We're going to need to see Parker out there Thursday or Friday if he's going to play Sunday against the Jets. For now, consider Parker questionable.
Oct 18 - 1:24 PM

Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) is practicing Wednesday.

Maclin missed Week 6 with the injury, but is on track to play Sunday against the Vikings if he avoids setbacks. Maclin runs over 60% of his snaps out of the slot and could avoid shutdown CB Xavier Rhodes much of the game.
Oct 18 - 1:12 PM

Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

Sanu sat out through the Week 5 bye and missed last Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. This puts him on track to return for Week 7 against the Patriots in a Super Bowl rematch. If Sanu is back, it makes Taylor Gabriel mostly unusable.
Oct 18 - 12:44 PM

Jameis Winston (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

As expected. Winston is doing very little on Wednesday, with the Bucs giving him some rest off an AC sprain in his throwing shoulder, but is expected to ramp things up Thursday or Friday to see if he can play in Buffalo. If Winston can't play, it'll again be Ryan Fitzpatrick under center against his former team.
Oct 18 - 12:40 PM

Sterling Shepard (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

Shepard was officially limited, but it's a step in the right direction after he sat out all last week and didn't play in the big underdog win over the Broncos Sunday night. Shepard, when he returns, will slide in as the unquestioned No. 1 receiver. He needs to be owned in all formats as a volume WR3.
