Maurice Jones-Drew blamed stacked boxes for his meager 23 yards on 14 carries in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

The Jaguars offense has gone in the tank without Justin Blackmon, leading to a frustrated Cecil Shorts and no creases for MJD. "They're loading the box to stop the run. It's frustrating. It's a challenge," Jones-Drew said. He has scored in back-to-back games, meaning the time is now to try to sell. Averaging a pathetic 2.89 YPC on the season, Jones-Drew isn't going to turn this thing around. He's lost a step or three and the Jags' passing game isn't going to spring to life.

Seahawks LG Luke Joeckel is out 4-5 weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Joeckel underwent an arthroscopic operation during the Seahawks' Week 6 bye. Unsurprisingly, Joeckel has been a liability on Russell Wilson's left side, though the options to replace him are even less appealing. Mark Glowinski is expected to get the first crack, though second-rounder Ethan Pocic is also a possibility. Coach Pete Carroll said both players could play in Week 7.

Raiders designated S Obi Melifonwu (knee surgery) as a return player from injured reserve.

Melifonwu can now resume practicing, and return to game action in Week 9. The No. 56 overall pick of April's draft, Melifonwu will slide in as the Raiders' No. 3 safety behind Karl Joseph and Reggie Nelson.

Panthers C Ryan Kalil (neck) expects to return for Week 7.

Kalil went down in Week 1. His return would be a huge boost for the Panthers' sputtering ground attack.

Eagles RT Lane Johnson has cleared the concussion protocol.

He practiced on Tuesday and is on track to return on Monday against Washington. Johnson getting back on the field is a big boost to Carson Wentz and the entire offense.

Ezekiel Elliott has a hearing in New York Tuesday afternoon regarding his request for a temporary restraining order.

We are as confused about all of this as you, but we think Elliott is pursuing an injunction similar to the one which allowed him to play the first five games, an injunction thrown out last week by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Even though the hearing is on Tuesday, it is unclear if Judge Paul A. Crotty will issue a ruling before Sunday's game against the 49ers. Elliott's outlook remains as clear as mud.

Wendell Smallwood (knee) expects to play Week 7 against the Redskins.

Smallwood has been sidelined two weeks because of a knee injury, but he was able to get in some work in practice Tuesday. We should get a better idea of his status when the Eagles issue their first injury report of the week on Thursday. If he is active, Smallwood will be worth FLEX consideration.

Luke Kuechly (concussion) did not practice Tuesday.

Kuechly was out on the practice field, a positive sign as he works through the protocol, but he did not take part in the session. His status for this week remains completely up in the air.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Kuechly is PFF’s 5th-ranked LB - if he can't play on Sunday, it would provide an upgrade for Bears RB Jordan Howard. Although Howard has only collected one catch over the past two games, he’s been productive on the ground. He was able to rack up 36 carries for 167 yards against the Ravens in Week 6 while playing 67.5% of the snaps - his highest rate of the season. Howard should see plenty of volume again in Week 7 but may be better for half PPR formats like FanDuel now that’s he less active in the passing game. Considering the Bears want to go run-heavy with Trubisky under center and Howard has cornered off the red zone carries, picking up 10 to Tarik Cohen’s 2, his $6.4k salary looks like a solid deal

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said Jameis Winston (throwing shoulder) will not attempt to throw until late in the week.

That is if he does at all. Despite that seemingly ominous outlook, Koetter seemed reasonably optimistic Winston will be ready to face the Bills on Sunday. "The way I understand it, he will be cleared medically to play," Koetter said. "I think it's going to be more of, 'Does Jameis feel like he can play at the level he needs to play at?'" Ryan Fitzpatrick will handle most of the work this week in practice and will start in Buffalo if Winston cannot play.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he plans to "actively expand" Josh Doctson's role.

"He didn’t get as many reps as I would like at the end of the day when you look at the numbers," Gruden said. "We have got to get him in there more and expand it." Doctson caught his second touchdown in three games on Sunday, but he played just 26 percent of the snaps. With both Terrelle Pryor and Jamison Crowder struggling to produce, it makes sense to get the sophomore more work. He is a solid bench stash in all leagues.

Tyreek Hill (neck) was listed as a full participant on the Chiefs' practice report Monday.

The Chiefs only conducted a walkthrough, but this is notable both because it confirms Hill did not suffer a concussion and puts him on track to play Thursday night against the Raiders. He will be an upside WR2 in that matchup.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's suspension has been lifted.

So the "indefinite" ban ended up lasting just one game. Suspended after walking out of the facility, Rodgers-Cromartie and coach Ben McAddo apparently smoothed things over in a meeting last week. This will hopefully be the last we hear of the incident.
