Sources tell FOX 25 Boston that investigators consider Aaron Hernandez a possible suspect in a 2012 double murder that occurred in Boston.

On July 16 of last year, police responded to an intersection in downtown Boston. They found three men had been shot while stopped at a traffic light -- two of them fatally. The deceased were identified as Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu, and they had reportedly just left a bar. Hernandez reportedly was involved in a nightclub altercation earlier that night. Witnesses said a gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire and then fled. The investigation is ongoing. Meanwhile, Hernandez was charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd on Wednesday and is facing a civil suit for shooting a man in the face in Florida in February. He'll be in court Thursday afternoon for a bail hearing.

Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan said the team plans to use Rueben Randle in the slot more over the final nine weeks of the season with Victor Cruz (knee) done for the year.

"The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Reuben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field," Ryan said. Randle is averaging nearly 10 targets per game the past five weeks. Getting him in the slot is just another way to get the ball in his hands. And at 6'2/208, he's a mismatch for smaller nickel corners. Randle has picked up his play and put himself into WR2 consideration. We're just waiting for that "boom" game.

Calvin Johnson (ankle) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Megatron traveled to London for Sunday morning's game against Atlanta, but most believe Johnson won't play, and that he was only brought across the pond to help the NFL's brand in Europe. Johnson resumed running this week, but Week 10, following Detroit's Week 9 bye, appears most likely for a return to the lineup.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) said he's contemplating season-ending surgery, and gave himself a 50-50 chance to play again in 2014.

Beason is in Charlotte visiting Dr. Robert Anderson for at least the third time since initially hurting his foot over summer. "I’m still deciding if the smart thing is to go ahead and get it fixed and get ready for next season," Beason said. He's appeared in parts of four games this season and has yet to make a real impact at less than 100 percent. Jameel McClain has been filling in at MIKE.

The Boston Globe reports Patriots RE Chandler Jones has a hip injury that will sideline him "about" one month.

The out-of-nowhere news is crushing for a Patriots pass rush that's been anchored by Jones this season. Jones has notched 4.5 of the Pats' 18 sacks, and been their only consistent generator of heat. This being the Pats, we may not receive an official timetable, but reporter Shalise Manza Young is very reliable. Jones' status should be updated when the Pats return to official practice on Wednesday. Jones sat out Tuesday's informal session.

WGR 550 Buffalo cautions "(not to) be surprised" if Anthony Dixon leads the Bills' running back committee this weekend.

Ace reporter Joe Buscaglia knows "everyone is waiting for Bryce Brown to be unleashed," but says the Bills "love" Dixon. Dixon himself is under the impression that he'll be the lead man, but hard answers could be hard to come by before Buffalo takes on the Jets. Brown is the more talented player. Both backs need to be 100 percent owned in 12-14 team leagues.

Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Reggie Wayne (elbow) said it's "too early" to know if he'll suit up for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Wayne will sit out Wednesday's practice, but that's something he's done all season. Reading through the lines of the rest of Wayne's interview, it sounds like he will miss Week 8, but should be back to full speed in 1-2 weeks. His status will be updated on Wednesday.

Patriots acquired OLB Akeem Ayers from the Titans in exchange for a sixth-round pick.

Per CBS' Jason La Canfora, the Pats are also getting a sixth-rounder in return. Jim Wyatt reports the deal is contingent on Ayers passing his physical. The Titans are giving up on a player who was a key cog on defense in 2011-13, but has been active just twice this season. Ayers has played only 10 snaps on defense in 2014, and apparently isn't a fit for DC Ray Horton's system. Ayers underwent surgery on both knees last offseason, but has been healthy enough to play. In the final year of his rookie contact, Ayers is an extra body for a Pats D that's taken big hits to its linebacker corps.

Redskins placed OLB Brian Orakpo on injured reserve with a torn right pectoral, ending his season.

OLB Everette Brown has been signed in a corresponding roster move. The torn pec is the third of Orakpo's career, though the first two were to his left side. Either way, it's an ominous way for the 28-year-old pass rusher to head into free agency. Orakpo will be an unrestricted free agent after playing under the franchise tag this season. He'll have missed 24 of his past 48 games once the season is through. It's quite possible 'Rak has played his final down for the Redskins.

NFL suspended Bucs DL Da'Quan Bowers two games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

A suspension was about the only thing missing from the 2011 mega bust's list of NFL lowlights. Bowers has played 159 snaps this season, but failed to generate any pass-rushing heat, notching only one sack. He played just 22-of-68 snaps in the Bucs' most-recent game. He'll return in Week 10.

Cowboys waived DE Michael Sam from the practice squad.

Sam had been with the Cowboys' taxi squad since before Week 1, but never earned a promotion to the 53-man roster. The NFL's first-openly gay player will now search for more practice-squad work. Sam notched three sacks in four preseason games, but his size (6-foot-2, 261 pounds) and one dimensional pass-rushing repertoire are holding him back.

Panthers released DB Charles Godfrey.

OG Chris Scott was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. The Panthers' No. 3 safety and No. 4 cornerback, Godfrey is taking the fall for the horrid play of Carolina's secondary. A seven-year veteran, Godfrey missed 14 games in 2013 with a torn Achilles' tendon. The injury apparently took with it a good deal of Godfrey's effectiveness, as he had been getting smoked both at safety and in the slot. A month shy of his 29th birthday, Godfrey will search for reserve work.
