The Seattle Times guesses Marshawn Lynch could lose 45-50 carries in 2014.

Lynch averaged 18.8 carries per game last season to finish with 301 totes. Beat writer Bob Condotta's "guess" is that average could fall into the 15-16 range. Extrapolate that out over 16 contests, and Lynch is looking at losing 52 carries if we put the needle at 15.5 carries per game. Those rushes will likely go to Christine Michael, who's expected to be a "regular part of the offense" in 2014. This won't be a true committee, but more of a lightening of the load for Beast Mode. Michael needs to be drafted in all redraft leagues and will likely explode in 2015 for Dynasty purposes. Lynch is still a locked-in borderline RB1/2 for 2014.

Coach Jason Garrett said Thursday he's "certainly" optimistic Tony Romo (back) can play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Romo did not participate in the Thursday morning walkthrough and is unlikely to practice much -- if at all - this week. However, he doesn't have any structural damage in his back and we've seen him play through all kinds of pain before, often taking pre-game injections. Ultimately, owners should expect a game-time call ahead of the 1pm ET matchup against a leaky Cardinals secondary.

Rashad Jennings (knee) will not play in Monday's game against the Colts.

Jennings rehab from a Week 5 MCL sprain is not going as expected -- he hasn't even resumed practicing yet. We'll consider him questionable for Week 10. In the meantime, rookie Andre Williams will try to rebound from two ineffective and disappointing starts prior to the bye. Showing a lack of vision and a tendency to run to contact, Williams will only be a borderline RB2.

Bucs beat writer Greg Auman sees 10-plus touches for Charles Sims (ankle) Sunday.

It sounds like a lot for a rookie that has been on IR/return all season, but it speaks to the kind of role the Bucs want him to have. Doug Martin (ankle) is in a walking boot and highly questionable, possibly leaving Sims and Bobby Rainey as the top-two backs against the Browns' No. 30 run defense Sunday. "There's no doubt, when (Sims) is ready to go, he will give us a spark," coach Lovie Smith said. "I feel pretty confident in saying that."

Darren Sproles (knee) appears ready to return for Sunday's game at Houston.

Sproles, who was limited in practice before sitting out Week 8, is practicing in full this week. He'll be ready for a bit role against the Texans, likely something in the neighborhood of 5-7 touches. It's not a drain on LeSean McCoy's projection at all.

Doctors do not know yet if Dennis Pitta (hip surgery) will play football again.

It's been five weeks since Pitta went under the knife to repair his second dislocated and fractured hip. "In a few months, we'll see how I'm feeling and how things are going, and we'll be able to make some determinations then," he said. Pitta, 29, signed a five-year, $32.5 million contract with $16 million guaranteed in February of this year.

NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini reports Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start Week 9 against the Vikings.

Russini has had some good info nuggets and been first on all-things Redskins multiple times this season. RGIII practiced in full on Wednesday, with multiple teammates saying he looked like his old self. But coach Jay Gruden has continued to say they won't rush RGIII back until he's 100 percent healthy and ready. That time appears to be now. Colt McCoy can ride high on his Monday night win over the Cowboys for the next few months. Gruden should name a starter Thursday or Friday. Signs continue to point to it being RGIII.

Justin Forsett said he has a "minor" ankle injury and plans to play Week 9 against the Steelers.

Forsett was held out of practice Wednesday. We'd like to see him return to at least a limited session on Thursday before feeling comfortable with him for Week 9. Players always tend to be more optimistic on their own injuries, so owners need to keep an eye on Forsett. Lorenzo Taliaferro would be next man up.
Oct 29 - 3:55 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Michael Gehlken reports that it "appears likely" Ryan Mathews (knee) is held out through the Chargers' Week 10 bye.

Mathews once again didn't practice Wednesday. He's been out since spraining his MCL on September 14. With Branden Oliver playing well in San Diego's backfield, there's no need to rush Mathews. He still needs to be stashed in all fantasy leagues, as there's a good chance he returns to early-down duties.
Oct 29 - 2:21 PM

Doug Martin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Martin is still in a walking boot after leaving last week's game with an ankle injury. His Week 9 availability is unclear, leaving the potential for Bobby Rainey or Charles Sims to start. Martin's status will be updated again on Thursday.
Oct 29 - 2:08 PM

Giovani Bernard (hip) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Bernard missed most of the fourth quarter last Sunday after hurting his hip. There have been virtually no updates on him since, with only NFL Network's Ian Rapoport saying "the sense" is Bernard's injury isn't serious. We chalked that up as mostly a guess. Bernard's not off to a great start for Week 9.
Oct 29 - 1:11 PM

A.J. Green (toe) returned to practice Wednesday, getting in a limited session.

It's Green's first Wednesday practice in about a month. He's going to try and play this week against the Jaguars. Green says if he plays, he's not going to be on a snap count. Hopefully he'll be able to avoid setbacks throughout the practice week. Owners need to sit tight. We'll provide constant updates.
