Steven Jackson is out indefinitely with a left hamstring injury, but is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Coach Mike Smith claimed Tuesday the injury isn't serious, but was vague on Jackson's timeline, only saying he's expected to be ready for Week 1. It's not the same hamstring that cost S-Jax four games in 2013, but it's up for debate whether that's good or bad news. No matter how serious, it's a big blow for a player who had reportedly looked "rejuvenated." It's a reminder that Jackson's advancing age (31) and recent health woes make him a dicey RB2. Rookie Devonta Freeman is worth a draft flier in all formats.

The hip injury Patriots DE Chandler Jones suffered Week 7 will sideline him at least six weeks, and could cost him the entire season.

That escalated quickly. Originally expected to be a month long absence, it now appears Jones will at best be available for the Patriots' Week 13 contest against the Packers, though New England is "not optimistic" Jones will be able to meet that timetable. Jones' injury is a huge blow for the Patriots' defense. Jones has 4.5 of New England's 18 sacks this season, and his pass-rushing presence makes everyone else along the defensive front better.

Buccaneers signed DT Gerald McCoy to a seven-year, $98 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes $51.5 million guaranteed, and makes McCoy the highest paid defensive tackle in NFL history. McCoy struggled with injuries his first two seasons, but bounced back to become one of the most dominant defensive forces in the league over the last two years. Only 26, McCoy was a first-team All-Pro last season, and already has two Pro Bowl selections under his belt. Amid constant double teams, McCoy has two sacks and nine hurries on 274 snaps this season. 2013 was McCoy's real breakout campaign, registering 9.5 sacks, 50 tackles, and four pass breakups.

The NFL Network's Albert Breer reports A.J. Green (toe) is unlikely to play against the Ravens Week 8.

Green did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. Breer reports Green is dealing with "lingering" ligament damage under his big toe, and he expects the Bengals to be careful with the injury. Green should be viewed as questionable for Week 9.

Titans RB Shonn Greene was arrested for fleeing the scene of a parking incident on Friday night.

Greene was parked in a handicap parking space in Franklin, Tennessee on Friday evening. When a parking enforcement officer tried to issue Greene a ticket, he got into his car, maneuvered around the officer's vehicle and left the scene. Greene was charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk. Green turned himself in Friday night after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest, and was released after posting a $2,000 bond. His status for Sunday's game against the Texans is unknown.

A source tells ESPN Jags reporter Mike DiRocco that the coaches "still aren't sure if [Denard] Robinson is capable of handling a heavy workload each week."

Robinson ripped apart the Browns' atrocious run defense last week for 22-127-1 and has earned another start. Don't expect 20-carry games to become the norm. The 197-pound "Shoelace" typically won't have gameflow on his side and also Toby Gerhart (foot) is coming back this week to pair with third-down back Jordan Todman. Furthermore, the Jags bottom-five offensive line is going to have its hands more than full with a very strong Dolphins front this week.

ESPN Boston says it would be a surprise if Shane Vereen (illness) doesn't play in Sunday's game against the Bears.

Vereen was under the weather and sat out Friday's practice. It shouldn't affect his role in a fine matchup at home Sunday. Vereen, who played on a career-high 80 percent of the snaps in the first game after Stevan Ridley's season-ending knee injury, is RB2 even in non-PPR formats.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Lions coach Jim Caldwell is thinking "big picture" with Calvin Johnson (questionable, ankle), and is not expected to allow Johnson to play Sunday morning in London.

Per Werder, Megatron and Reggie Bush (ankle, doubtful) are both "not likely" to play against the Falcons. The Lions are 5-2 with a Week 9 bye, and could get both playmakers two more full weeks of rest before unleashing them for the stretch run. Holding Johnson and Bush out against Atlanta would be the savviest move by Caldwell, even if the Lions lose to the Falcons. Look for the Lions to continue to lean heavily on Joique Bell and Golden Tate in Week 8.

According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, there is a "chance" Ryan Mathews (knee) could return for the Chargers' Week 9 game against the Dolphins.

Mathews' MCL sprain has cost him six weeks. As the Chargers have begun to lose games, they may feel more urgency to get their best early-down runner back on the field. "That's in my head," Mathews said Friday of a potential Week 9 return. "I'm just going keep doing my treatment this week, come back on Monday, and see what they (team doctors) say." Per beat writer Michael Gehlken, Mathews is "clearly close," looks conditioned, and his "right knee was stable" during a Thursday evening workout before San Diego's loss to Denver. Mathews should be stashed in all fantasy leagues.

Khiry Robinson (forearm) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Packers.

Robinson referred to his injury as "a little boo-boo" earlier in the week, but the Saints' medical staff clearly disagrees. As Pierre Thomas has also been ruled out, New Orleans' backfield will be dominated by Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet versus Green Bay's No. 31 run defense. The stars have aligned for a bounce-back game for Ingram after last week's clunker against Detroit.

Shane Vereen is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Bears after missing Friday's practice with an illness.

Twitter freaked out when Vereen wasn't seen at Friday's practice, but players often miss practice with illnesses and are all systems go on game days. Check back Sunday for updates, but Vereen's outlook shouldn't have changed.
Oct 24 - 4:13 PM

Vincent Jackson (ribs) is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Vikings.

V-Jax practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and is expected to play against Minnesota. His status will be worth rechecking Sunday morning, however. On the off chance Jackson were unable to suit up for Week 8, the Bucs would turn to Mike Evans and Louis Murphy as their starting wideouts.
