Speaking about Joe Flacco's contract situation Tuesday, GM Ozzie Newsome guaranteed he'll be a Raven in 2013.

"We'll be able to get that thing done," Newsome said. "(He'll) be playing football for us next year. And sometimes that's all you can look forward to is just next year." Newsome strongly hinted that the Ravens will franchise tag Flacco before free agency, and then work toward a long-term agreement before the July deadline. According to CBS' Jason La Canfora, an average annual value of $20 million is Flacco's "magic number." For what it's worth, Newsome says the sides have a "good understanding" of where the other stands.

Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7.

Zeke's restraining order, apparently issued by a "fill-in" judge, is for 14 days. He will have to make his case to judge Judge Katherine Fallia when she returns from vacation "before or by Oct. 30." She will decide on a "preliminary injunction." Unbelievable. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8. His long-term prospects remain clear as mud, but fantasy owners have at least one more game to get their fantasy backfield in order. Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris won't be playable this week.

49ers placed DE Arik Armstead (broken hand) on injured reserve.

The 49ers tipped their hand earlier Tuesday, signing DL Tony McDaniel and Leger Douzable. Armstead will presumably be a candidate for return, but he'll have to sit out eight games first, meaning he can't return until Week 16. At that point, the 49ers might not bother. The No. 17 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Armstead was off to a solid start this season, plugging the run and providing some pass rush. Things are in danger of getting really ugly for the rebuilding 49ers.

Colts RB Robert Turbin (arm) will miss the remainder of the season.

Turbin's left arm got bent in sickening fashion against the Titans on Monday. He had handled a season-high seven touches before going down. Turbin was struggling behind Frank Gore, averaging 2.30 yards on his 23 carries. Two months shy of his 28th birthday, Turbin is signed for $1 million next season. His loss will create more opportunities for promising rookie Marlon Mack.

Redskins placed K Dustin Hopkins (hip) on injured reserve.

Hopkins is apparently a candidate for return. He has to miss a minimum of eight games. In the meantime, he will be replaced by 2016 UDFA Nick Rose. The Redskins' kicker since 2015, Hopkins has been an 84 percent field goal kicker, and converted 5-of-13 kicks of 50 yards or longer. 2017 is the final year of his contract.

Speaking Tuesday, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said the team's Week 6 timeshare at running back was a "good model."

Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray both played 39 snaps one week after Murray out-snapped Henry 49-11. Henry ran circles around Murray against the Colts, out-touching him 20-16 and out-gaining him 145-87. Mularkey also said Henry has become the team's "go-to" running back in the fourth quarter. Mularkey's comments make it clear there shouldn't be another game where Murray plays 38 more snaps than Henry, but it's going to remain a messy situation, with the veteran likely to continue taking the lead. Henry has been the better player this season. Maybe the Titans' workload delineation will eventually begin to reflect that.

DeMarco Murray is dealing with hamstring tightness, but will be active for Week 7.

One week after dominating snaps, Murray played as many (39) as Derrick Henry against the Colts. Henry both out-touched and out-gained his veteran backfield mate as Murray checked in and out of the game. Murray has been battling hamstring issues since training camp, and is merely the RB18 by total points through the season's first six weeks. He'll be a risk/reward RB2 for Week 7 against the Browns.

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) escaped Monday night's win over the Colts without setbacks.

Mariota's mobility was noticeably limited, but he played better and better as the game wore on. It was an extremely impressive effort by a player who isn't known for staying confined to the pocket. Mariota offers monster upside for Week 7 against the Browns.

Seahawks LG Luke Joeckel is out 4-5 weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Joeckel underwent an arthroscopic operation during the Seahawks' Week 6 bye. Unsurprisingly, Joeckel has been a liability on Russell Wilson's left side, though the options to replace him are even less appealing. Mark Glowinski is expected to get the first crack, though second-rounder Ethan Pocic is also a possibility. Coach Pete Carroll said both players could play in Week 7.
Oct 17 - 3:47 PM

Raiders designated S Obi Melifonwu (knee surgery) as a return player from injured reserve.

Melifonwu can now resume practicing, and return to game action in Week 9. The No. 56 overall pick of April's draft, Melifonwu will slide in as the Raiders' No. 3 safety behind Karl Joseph and Reggie Nelson.
Oct 17 - 3:28 PM

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (neck) expects to return for Week 7.

Kalil went down in Week 1. His return would be a huge boost for the Panthers' sputtering ground attack.
Oct 17 - 1:57 PM

Eagles RT Lane Johnson has cleared the concussion protocol.

He practiced on Tuesday and is on track to return on Monday against Washington. Johnson getting back on the field is a big boost to Carson Wentz and the entire offense.
