Vincent Jackson (rib) remained out of Bucs practice Thursday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday that Jackson's injury is "not considered serious," but he'll likely have to get in at least a limited session on Friday to have a realistic chance of suiting up against the Cardinals. For now, V-Jax is a borderline WR1 against Patrick Peterson and Arizona, but he has the potential to fall down the ranks.

Bills placed RB C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Spiller can resume practicing in six weeks, but won't be eligible for game action until Week 16. There's obviously a (strong?) chance the Bills are already eliminated from playoff contention by then, but they were running out of time to use their I.R./return spot. There's really no downside to stashing Spiller in the hope that he can return to a team that will be in the thick of the playoff race with two weeks to go. Spiller remains safely droppable in all re-draft leagues.

Bills signed RB Phillip Tanner.

With C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson both injured, the Bills need a caddie behind Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon. A fourth-year undrafted free agent who spent 2011-13 in Dallas, Tanner has averaged 2.7 yards on 56 career carries. Even in the deepest of leagues, Tanner is a pure desperation add with almost no shot at paying off.

Darren Sproles (knee) is practicing Tuesday.

Sproles is ahead of schedule as he comes off a sprained MCL. However, he's not expected to participate fully in this light Tuesday session and remains questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona. Sproles was originally expected to miss 1-2 games. Of course, fantasy owners should note he is averaging just 5.5 touches per game in his last four outings anyway.

Speaking Tuesday morning, A.J. Green (toe) said his Week 8 status is "still up in the air."

On Sunday, Green was overheard telling a teammate he's going to play in Week 8. On Monday, coach Marvin Lewis said the star receiver has made tremendous strides. But Green still needs to get through a full week of practice and figure out how to manage pain. "It's probably not gonna be 100 percent, but I hope it's just manageable," Green said. "I can get through the season and be fine and still play at a high level." We'll consider him day to day for now.

A source tells ABC6 in Indy that Reggie Wayne (elbow) could miss 1-2 games.

Wayne landed awkwardly on his left arm early in Sunday's win over the Bengals. He hardly missed any snaps, but did have two uncharacteristic drops later on. The injury sounds like some kind of minor sprain that the Colts might exercise caution with. Hakeem Nicks projects to slide into an every-down role opposite T.Y. Hilton, but Donte Moncrief has been closing the gap there lately. Nicks would be a desperation fantasy WR4 despite the opportunity.

Reggie Bush (ankle) said he will play in Sunday's game against the Falcons in London.

Bush barely played in the second half of the Week 7 win over the Saints because his ankle was bothering him. He admits that he's still not 100 percent, but insists he now feels "fine." The Lions could use Bush on only a limited package of plays, especially if they get a big lead on the hapless Falcons. Joique Bell will be the far superior fantasy play.

Terrance West was benched after failing to pick up a first down on a pair of second-quarter carries in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

West was actually playing ahead of Isaiah Crowell to open the game. He had room to run in both critical short-yardage situations, but tried to do too much. "I missed it," he said. "Wish I could get it back. ... I know I've got limited reps. So I know when I'm in a game, I'm trying to get a big play." On Monday, coach Mike Pettine lamented trying to get three running backs into the rotations. We wouldn't be surprised if West goes back to healthy scratch status this week, leaving Crowell to pick up all the work behind Ben Tate against the Raiders.

According to NFL Network, Pierre Thomas (shoulder) will miss 2-3 weeks.

Thomas, currently third on the Saints in both catches and rush attempts, sustained the injury during Sunday's narrow loss at Detroit. The earliest he'll return is likely Week 10, as the Saints play on Thursday night in Week 9. It opens up a nice window for Khiry Robinson to get a bump in snaps and Travaris Cadet to get on the PPR radar. Cadet's role was expanding a bit even before Thomas' injury, as he has 15-129-1 through the air over the last three weeks while exclusively playing in the pass game.

Arian Foster rushed for 102 yards on 20 carries in the Texans' 30-23, Week 7 loss to the Steelers on Monday night, adding four catches for 13 yards and one touchdown.

Foster got off to a blazing start, rushing for 59 yards on the Texans' 94-yard opening touchdown drive, but was vultured by Alfred Blue for the 11-yard touchdown catch to cap it off. The wheels then fell off the Texans later in the half, and they never recovered. Foster was part of the problem, as he lost a fumble at his own three-yard line, setting up Le'Veon Bell's easy TD. Foster gave fantasy owners a scare on the third series of the game when he appeared to twist his knee while getting bent backward on a tackle. He shook it off and remained in the game. His score came from one yard out late in the fourth quarter. A locked-in RB1 any week he plays, Foster gets a date with the Titans in Week 8.

Le'Veon Bell rushed for 57 yards on 12 carries in the Steelers' 30-23, Week 7 win over the Texans on Monday night, adding eight catches for 88 yards and one touchdown.

Bell didn't see nearly enough work as a runner, with OC Todd Haley opting to give nine carries to LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer. But Bell more than made up for it in the pass game. His big gain was a 43-yard catch-and-run on a third down in the first half when he ran right past ILB Brian Cushing, who appears to be a shell of his former self after season-ending injuries. Bell was then left wide open right before the half for a two-yard touchdown grab. It was his first score since Week 1. A legit RB1, Bell and the Steelers host the Colts next week.
Oct 20 - 11:39 PM

Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is inactive for Monday night's Week 7 game against the Steelers.

Clowney's lateral agility wasn't where the Texans wanted it to be in pre-game warmups. He's been out since undergoing knee surgery after Week 1. Whitney Mercilus is filling in. Also inactive for the Texans are QB Tom Savage, CB Jumal Rolle, CB Josh Aubrey, CB Darryl Morris, OT Jeff Adams, and WR DeVier Posey.
