Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is not on the Week 10 injury report.

As the Cardinals come out of their bye, Fitzgerald appears 100 percent for the first time since sustaining his hamstring injury in Week 1. It's perfect timing for the seven-time Pro Bowler. Over the next five weeks, he'll face the following soft schedule: vs. HOU, at JAX, vs. IND, at PHL, vs. STL. Expect Fitzgerald to improve on his current pace of 72 catches, 940 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Coach Mike Pettine confirmed that Ben Tate (knee) remains on course to play and start Sunday's game against the Titans.

Tate remains limited a bit in Thursday's practice, but he's likely to see 12-15 touches against an undersized and soft Titans front this week. Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West will be competing for the rest of the work. When asked about dividing reps between three running backs, Pettine said, "It's not an easy problem. It is an issue. You have to have plan for it, be willing to adjust it." Tate is the best bet here as the starter, but he's going to have to play well in this hot-hand backfield.

Chiefs WR Donnie Avery needs sports hernia surgery.

Avery is going to Philadelphia, presumably to be operated on by sports hernia specialist Dr. William Meyers. Recovery timetables for this procedure can range anywhere from 2-8 weeks. Avery, the Chiefs' second-most targeted player, had 14 catches for 156 yards and no touchdowns through the first four games. Look for A.J. Jenkins and Frankie Hammond to fill in on the outside.

Joique Bell (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol.

Bell was in the locker room with his teammates Thursday, a sign he's made some progress. He remains questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. If Bell can't go, Reggie Bush would get a bump as he'd only be complemented by Theo Riddick and George Winn.

The Vikings plan to take the Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) decision right up until 90 minutes before Thursday's kickoff.

"Teddy Bridgewater still wants to play," but the Vikings want "to make sure it limits danger," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Teddy is fighting a garden-variety ankle sprain sustained just four days ago. If there's any danger of making it worse at all, the Vikings should play it safe with the new face of their franchise. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier signs point to Bridgewater sitting out this difficult spot at Lambeau.

The 2015 NFL draft will be held from April 30-May 2.

The 2014 draft didn't begin until May 8, drawing complaints from fans, media and teams. So the 2015 version is up a week, and will be held in either Los Angeles or Chicago instead of its usual Radio City Music Hall location. All the NCAA prospects can be tracked in our NFL Draft section.

A source told the Boston Globe that Aaron Dobson was deactivated in Weeks 3 and 4 because he "mouthed off" to Patriots OC Josh McDaniels.

"Mouthing off" to Belichick wannabe McDaniels apparently costs you two full games, despite the Patriots' glaring needs at perimeter wide receiver. 23 years old, big, and fast, Dobson would give New England an offensive element it sorely lacks, but it sounds like McDaniels is putting his ego before the team. Dobson's status going forward is unclear. He's just a WR5 stash in 12-team leagues.

NFL suspended Panthers DE Frank Alexander 10 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Alexander just returned Monday from a four-game suspension for violating the same policy. He's now out for the next 10 games, and can't return until Week 16. What a boneheaded mistake. Carolina will continue to move forward with Charles Johnson, Kony Ealy, Mario Addison, and Wes Horton as its four-man rotation at end. Alexander's rookie deal ends following the 2015 season.

Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Foster is likely going to miss plenty of practice reps this week before being a game-time decision against the Cowboys on Sunday. Foster said he wasn't 100 percent in Week 4, and coach Bill O'Brien later called his running back day-to-day. If Foster can't play, Alfred Blue would likely get the start for Houston.

Marvin Jones tweaked his ankle on Wednesday and was listed as "DNP."

Jones can't catch a break. After missing all of the offseason program with an ankle injury, Jones returned to training camp for all of one practice before breaking his foot. In his first official practice back from the broken foot on Wednesday, Jones hurts his ankle. He was initially expected to make his season debut this week against New England, but now Jones' status is up in the air.

Coach Ron Rivera said Darrin Reaves is currently the Panthers' starting running back.

With DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (leg) out and Jonathan Stewart (knee) still working his way back, Reaves is next up on the depth chart, followed by Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker. Reaves (5-foot-7, 209) is an undrafted rookie out of UAB, but was a favorite by some in the draft community. For owners in a bye-week or injury crunch, Reaves is worth a grab for Week 5 against the Bears. He won't be the full-time ball carrier, but should lead a committee attack.
Oct 1 - 4:01 PM

Coach Jeff Fisher announced that Austin Davis will be the Rams' starting quarterback moving forward.

Fisher says there will be "no short hook." After initially claiming Shaun Hill would resume the starting job once 100 percent healthy from a Week 1 thigh injury, Fisher has changed course. Rightfully so. Among quarterbacks with at least 90 pass attempts, Davis is tops in the league with his 72.3 completion percentage. He's averaging a healthy 8.0 YPA with a 3:3 TD:INT ratio. He's had a couple back-breaking turnovers, but Davis has generally moved the offense pretty well. Davis has a plus matchup against the Eagles this week, but is still a QB2. Davis isn't the long-term option past 2014. The Rams should know that.
