Giants agreed to terms with No. 225 overall pick G Eric Herman on a four-year contract.

Herman has NFL-size at 6-foot-4, 320 pounds, but has stubby 32 1/4-inch arms. He managed 36 bench-press reps at the Combine, but is not a high-end athlete, even for a guard. The Giants are undertaking a youth movement along their offensive line, but Herman's best bet is the practice squad.

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.

Justin Forsett said he has a "minor" ankle injury and plans to play Week 9 against the Steelers.

Forsett was held out of practice Wednesday. We'd like to see him return to at least a limited session on Thursday before feeling comfortable with him for Week 9. Players always tend to be more optimistic on their own injuries, so owners need to keep an eye on Forsett. Lorenzo Taliaferro would be next man up.

Robert Griffin III (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

RGIII took the initial first-team rep, but Colt McCoy was in for the second one. Coach Jay Gruden says the two will split first-team reps this week before a decision is made on who will start against the Vikings. Before RGIII is permitted to start, Gruden says the ankle has to be stable and RGIII has to be comfortable with the mental workload. Expect a decision Thursday or Friday.

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Michael Gehlken reports that it "appears likely" Ryan Mathews (knee) is held out through the Chargers' Week 10 bye.

Mathews once again didn't practice Wednesday. He's been out since spraining his MCL on September 14. With Branden Oliver playing well in San Diego's backfield, there's no need to rush Mathews. He still needs to be stashed in all fantasy leagues, as there's a good chance he returns to early-down duties.

Doug Martin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Martin is still in a walking boot after leaving last week's game with an ankle injury. His Week 9 availability is unclear, leaving the potential for Bobby Rainey or Charles Sims to start. Martin's status will be updated again on Thursday.

Giovani Bernard (hip) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Bernard missed most of the fourth quarter last Sunday after hurting his hip. There have been virtually no updates on him since, with only NFL Network's Ian Rapoport saying "the sense" is Bernard's injury isn't serious. We chalked that up as mostly a guess. Bernard's not off to a great start for Week 9.
Oct 29 - 1:11 PM

A.J. Green (toe) returned to practice Wednesday, getting in a limited session.

It's Green's first Wednesday practice in about a month. He's going to try and play this week against the Jaguars. Green says if he plays, he's not going to be on a snap count. Hopefully he'll be able to avoid setbacks throughout the practice week. Owners need to sit tight. We'll provide constant updates.

Jordan Cameron (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Cameron remains in the league's concussion protocol, and is extremely doubtful to play Week 9 against the Bucs. The Browns then play on Thursday night in Week 10, leaving Cameron's status for the next two games in jeopardy. His 2012 and 2013 seasons were both ended by concussions, and coach Mike Pettine expressed some concern Wednesday. We'd consider Cameron week-to-week. Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge will fill in at tight end.
Oct 29 - 12:59 PM

Tony Romo (back) is not practicing Wednesday.

Not a surprise. Romo likely won't practice at all this week with the Cowboys calling him day-to-day with his back contusion. Romo is already shaping up as a full-blown game-time decision for Week 9 against the Cardinals. Jerry Jones has said Romo's status will be determined on how much pain Romo can handle.
Oct 29 - 12:25 PM

Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict had his left knee scoped on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least two games.

That's extremely optimistic, as most players need about four weeks to recover from a scope. Burfict can't stay off the trainer's table this season. He's missed time with a couple concussions, a neck injury, and now this. With MLB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) also on the shelf, Emmanuel Lamur and Vincent Rey will be the Bengals' top two linebackers. Burfict has played just 223 snaps this season.
Oct 29 - 12:04 PM

Jerry Jones said Tony Romo's Week 9 status will be based on "pain tolerance," and Romo could be a "game-time decision."

Early Wednesday, ESPN's Ed Werder passed along an "emerging possibility" that Romo "will miss time," perhaps 1-2 games. At this point, the Cowboys don't know if Romo will be available to play against the Cardinals. We'd consider Romo very likely to sit out all of the practice week, with Brandon Weeden taking the first-team reps. Fantasy owners should have quarterback alternatives in place. The 6-2 Cowboys can't afford to take chances with Romo.
