The Chiefs have been tinkering with Pistol Spread formations at OTAs.

The club hired ex-Nevada coach Chris Ault -- Godfather of the Pistol -- as a consultant this offseason. Alex Smith has some history with Pistol formations from his time with Urban Meyer at Utah. The added dimension could make Andy Reid's offense more "multiple," but is unlikely to have a major impact on Smith's 2013 fantasy outlook. He will be a low-end, low-ceiling QB2.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Martavis Bryant skipped mandatory team meetings on Monday.

This is escalating quickly. One of Bryant's teammates told beat writer Ed Bouchette the oft-suspended receiver "called in sick." Coming off a two-touch game, Bryant trashed JuJu Smith-Schuster, as well as the team, on Instagram. Bryant wants a trade, but unless the Steelers are desperate to get him out of the locker room, it's unclear what their motivation to deal him would be. Right now he provides proven play-making depth.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase confirms Jay Cutler is dealing with cracked ribs, and will be sidelined for Week 8.

With the Dolphins playing on Thursday Night Football, Cutler had no shot at being ready for Week 8. He's expected to be sidelined 2-3 weeks. Matt Moore provided an immediate spark on Sunday, but Gase has been adamant Cutler will be the team's starter when healthy. Moore has a tough short-week assignment in the Ravens.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys K Dan Bailey (groin) is expected to miss "several weeks."

This appeared to be the likely outcome after Bailey was quickly ruled out against the 49ers. Dallas will work out free agent Ks Jason Myers, Mike Nugent, Sam Irwin Hill, and Younghoe Koo this week.

Browns announced LT Joe Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a torn left triceps.

An MRI confirmed the injury on Monday, and Thomas will likely be placed on injured reserve this week. It is a devastating blow for the Browns which also ends Thomas' streak of 167 consecutive starts. Spencer Drango replaced Thomas at left tackle on Sunday.

Marlon Mack played 32-of-67 snaps (48%) Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Frank Gore played just 22. With Robert Turbin out and the Colts down big, Mack handled much of the work in the second half and easily had the biggest snap share of his career. It was not all roses as the rookie dropped a couple passes, but he also went for 34 yards on a dump off, showcasing his big-play ability. Likely to see his role continue to grow, Mack needs to be rostered in all leagues.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports Teddy Bridgewater (knee, PUP) will not play Week 8 against the Browns.

The game will be held at Twickenham Stadium in England, and Florio writes the Vikings do not want to risk Bridgewater on the "notoriously slippery" soccer field. With the Vikings on bye Week 9, that means the earliest we will see Bridgewater is Week 10 against Washington, but it is not a given he will be the starter even once he is healthy enough to play. For now, Bridgewater is just a stash in deep two-quarterback leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Texans LT Duane Brown will not be traded.

Brown ended his holdout by reporting to the team on Monday. It is good timing for the Texans with fill-in LT Chris Clark expected to miss some time with a calf injury, although it remains to be seen if Brown will be ready to play this week. For what it is worth, the tackle says he is "in shape" and ready to go. When he does get back on the field, Brown will be a big upgrade for an offense which is already trending the right way with rookie Deshaun Watson at quarterback.

Orleans Darkwa played 21-of-59 snaps (36%) Week 7 against the Seahawks.

Wayne Gallman ended up playing one more snap, although Darkwa did touch the ball five more times. Still, the snap split is disappointing after Darkwa carried the offense in the upset win over the Broncos Week 6. Darkwa will have a good matchup against the Rams following the bye, but he will not be an exciting fantasy option as part of a committee on a low-scoring offense.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the team will "stick with" Drew Stanton as their starting quarterback.

Carson Palmer suffered a broken arm Sunday which will sideline him at least eight weeks and possibly the rest of the season. Stanton completed just 5-of-14 passes for 62 yards with zero scores in over a half of work in relief against the Rams, and he has struggled to move the ball throughout his career. Arizona should strongly consider giving Blaine Gabbert a shot.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said he is not "going to change anything on a grand scheme" following Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

The subtext being OC Steve Sarkisian is not going anywhere despite a pitiful performance against what had been one of the worst defenses in the league. The players also stood behind their coordinator, with Julio Jones saying he and everyone else has a good connection with Sarkisian. Still, the offense is clearly trending down, and Sarkisian's seat will only grow hotter if he cannot turn things around this week against the Jets.

Joe Mixon believes the Bengals need to run the football more.

Despite some rare success on the ground in the first half, Mixon did not record a carry after the break while Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard were mostly uninvolved as well. "It's frustrating to us running backs," Mixon said. "If it worked in the first half, why not do it in the second?" Mixon's workload had been fairly steady before the bye, and he still led the backfield in touches on Sunday. He should bounce back in a good spot against the Colts this week.
