Chris Ivory exited Thursday night's preseason opener with a rib injury.

Ivory started the game over Chris Johnson, rushing seven times for 17 yards. We don't know the extent of the injury yet, but the Jets announced Ivory would not return. His absence allowed Chris Johnson to handle a goal-line carry, and Johnson executed from a yard out. We'll update when we know more.

Bucs WR Cecil Shorts tore his right ACL, MCL and PCL, and dislocated his knee.

It's a career-threatening injury. Going on 29 with a long and winding injury history, the odds are against Shorts ever playing another NFL snap. It's a shame for a player who had a useful peak, one that could have been much better without all the injuries.

Speaking Monday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said "I don't know" when asked about Jeremy Maclin's (groin) Week 14 availability.

"He's making improvement," was Reid's unhelpful addendum. Despite getting in three limited practices, Maclin didn't seem particularly close to returning on Sunday. There's a pretty strong chance he won't suddenly be cleared in three days time for Thursday Night Football. Even if Maclin does play, his usual complement of snaps is unlikely. Struggling even before he was injured, Maclin has faded to WR4 status.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said maybe the team "got ahead of ourselves" in Kelvin Benjamin's recovery from an ACL tear this offseason.

"Maybe we did get him out there too soon, too much," Rivera said. Benjamin has not been spectacular, but he has actually caught a larger percentage of his targets and averaged more yards per catch this year than his rookie season. He also is dealing with a shoulder injury which likely has nothing to do with being pushed back "too soon." The Panthers will look for answers after this lost season, but Benjamin has been fine.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Jordan Matthews (ankle) should return to practice Wednesday.

Matthews was able to get in a limited practice last Thursday, but he was held out on Friday after getting "a little sore." A return Wednesday would tentatively put Matthews on track to play, but another setback cannot be ruled out. Devoid of reliable weapons in the passing game, the Eagles need Matthews healthy as soon as possible.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Ryan Mathews (knee) is expected to practice Wednesday.

Mathews has missed the last two games with an MCL sprain. A practice Wednesday would put him on track to play against the Redskins, but Pederson said just last week the injury "could linger." Mathews should be considered questionable.

ESPN's Pat McManamon wrote "all signs point" to Robert Griffin III getting the start this week.

Hue Jackson has yet to name a starter, and McManamon's prediction comes with the important caveat of "provided he makes it through practice and looks like he has shaken off three months of rust." Still, it makes sense for the Browns to see what Griffin can do, especially considering they averaged fewer than 10 points in their last four games. Even if Griffin gets the nod, the offense around him is too poor and the chance of an in-game injury is too high to trust him in the first-round of the playoffs.

Doug Martin (back?) said he was "doing fine" after sitting out the final three drives Week 13 against the Chargers.

Martin said he was "bent back" late in the game, and that is why he sat out. Coach Dirk Koetter also said the running back was fine after the game. It looks like Martin will be healthy enough to play this week against the Saints, but his workload is suddenly in question, especially with Charles Sims (knee, injured reserve) potentially returning.

Denver 7's Troy Renck reports there is "hope" Trevor Siemian (foot) will play this week.

Renck reports Siemian's foot "has improved" since last week. He will be evaluated on Monday. The Broncos got the win against Jacksonville, but they won despite Paxton Lynch. With a tougher test against Tennessee on tap, the Broncos need Siemian on the field if possible.

Thomas Rawls had 15 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns and caught one pass for 12 yards in Seattle's Week 13 win over the Panthers.

Rawls did all his damage early, with just three of his yards coming after halftime. Both of his touchdowns were highlight runs. Rawls hurdled into end-zone from eight yards out for his first score, and made a nice cut outside for a 45-yard TD. The Seahawks briefly checked Rawls for a concussion but he only missed a few series. Even with a matchup against the Packers run defense, Rawls is a borderline RB1 for Week 14.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera told NBC that Cam Newton's one-play benching on Sunday was the result of a "dress code violation."

Rivera cost his team three points because Newton didn't wear a tie (seriously). Derek Anderson's tipped-ball interception on the game's opening play was a "ball don't lie" if there ever was one. Rivera likely snapped after a year of Russell Westbrook-esque fashion offenses from Newton following games. We're guessing the ol' ball coach won't make the same mistake twice.

Thomas Rawls left Week 13 against the Panthers with a possible concussion.

Rawls went to the locker room after a helmet to helmet hit late in the second quarter. He passed the league's protocol and returned after halftime.
