Ex-Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, and is facing five additional gun charges.

Hernandez has pled not guilty, but is being held without bail. We are not legal scholars — it's surreal for a fantasy football site to have to cover such a senseless and macabre event — but the evidence the Attleboro District Court has collected against Hernandez over the past week appears damning bordering on overwhelming. Hernandez is alleged to have erased 6-8 hours of video footage from his home-security system, and was reportedly caught on tape saying "you can't trust anyone anymore" before picking Lloyd up on the night of the murder. He was also caught on film walking through his home with a gun after the murder is alleged to have taken place, and reportedly left behind a shell-casing in a rental car. The prosecution believes Hernandez "orchestrated" the "execution." This is just the first day of what is going to be a long and drawn out legal process, but the odds are remarkably high that Hernandez has played his last down of NFL football.

Latavius Murray rushed 18 times for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

He wasn't used in the passing game, but Murray did out-touch Jerick McKinnon 18 to 17 in a game where Minnesota's rushing attack imposed its will on the Ravens' overrated run defense. Murray broke off chunk yardage in addition to big gains, ripping a 35-yarder and a 31-yard score. Murray's lack of receiving value hurts his weekly floor, but he now looks like a viable flex play ahead of a Week 8 date with the Browns. This is still going to be a timeshare backfield going forward.

C.J. Prosise (ankle) is active for Week 7 against the Giants.

Prosise is expected to be on a snap count after missing the past two games with an ankle injury. Most of his work will come on passing downs. CB Jeremy Lane, OT Isaiah Battle, LG Luke Joeckel, OG Jordan Roos, DT Garrison Smith and S Tedric Thompson round out Seattle's inactives for Week 7.

Giants declared WR Sterling Shepard, LB Jonathan Casillas, LB Calvin Munson, RB Paul Perkins, C Weston Richburg, DE Olivier Vernon and QB Davis Webb inactive for Week 7 against the Seahawks.

It's a surprise after NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported earlier that Shepard was good to go. The second-year receiver never came out for warmups and will sit for the second week in a row. The Giants have a bye coming up, which may have prompted their decision to rest Shepard another week. Roger Lewis and Tavarres King will operate as the Giants' top wideouts against a loaded Seahawks secondary in Week 7.

Jay Cutler left Sunday's Week 7 game against the Jets with a chest injury and is questionable to return.

Cutler bowed out after taking a huge hit from Jordan Jenkins early in the third quarter. He attempted a pass on the sideline after coming out but winced as he threw and was quickly escorted to the locker room. Cutler completed 12-of-16 passes for 138 yards with two touchdowns and one interception before exiting. Veteran backup Matt Moore has taken the reigns at quarterback.

Keenan Allen (shoulder) is active for Week 7 against the Broncos.

Allen hurt his shoulder Thursday and did not practice Friday, so he is likely less than 100 percent. Still, he has seen at least nine targets in every game and has a history of scoring touchdowns against the Broncos. He is a top-30 option even in the bad matchup. The Chargers declared DL Corey Liuget (back), RT Joe Barksdale (foot), Dontrelle Inman, Branden Oliver, Cardale Jones, OT Tyler Marz, and TE Sean Culkin inactive for Week 7.
Oct 22 - 3:02 PM

Melvin Gordon (shoulder) is active for Week 7 against the Broncos.

This was always expected despite his limited practice participation this week. Gordon has averaged almost 26 touches a game in his last three against the Broncos. He is a solid RB1.
Oct 22 - 3:01 PM

Carson Palmer exited Week 7 against the Rams with a left hand or wrist injury.

Palmer took a hit on his second-quarter interception and appeared to be nursing something with his left arm after the hit. The Rams quickly scored a touchdown, and Drew Stanton came into the game as Palmer jogged to the locker room. Before leaving, Palmer was 10-of-18 for 122 yards and the pick.
Oct 22 - 2:21 PM

Mike Wallace (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of Week 7.

He finished with one catch for nine yards. Wallace tried pleading his case with Ravens coaches and medical staff to be allowed to return, but they did not relent. The Ravens are devastatingly short handed at wide receiver.

Jaguars LT Cam Robinson was carted off with an ankle injury in Week 7 against the Colts.

Robinson went down on the opening drive of the game. He's listed as questionable to return, but this looks like a serious injury. Josh Wells replaced Robinson.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Andrew Luck (shoulder) will return if he's healthy this season, regardless of the Colts' record.

The Colts are giving somewhat mixed signals as Jacoby Brissett has been told to prepare as if he'll be the starter for the rest of the season, though Rapoport said it's a "fact" that Luck will return if healthy. Per Rapsheet, Luck will not practice this week following his latest setback and a late November return is probably his best case scenario. The Colts will continue to hold off on placing Luck on season-ending I.R., but his lack of tangible progress may eventually force their hand.
Oct 22 - 12:26 PM

Ravens DT Brandon Williams is active for Week 7 against the Vikings.

Williams is a difference-making run defender on the inside, so this is a blow to Vikings interior runner Latavius Murray's outlook. If the Vikings are smart, they will use Jerick McKinnon even more than usual this week, looking to attack the edges of Baltimore's defense as opposed to the interior.
