Deshaun Watson (knee) said he is "right where [he needs] to be" in his rehab.

Watson tore his ACL in November. "The knee is doing good," Watson said. "For the nine-week goal we put in from the beginning [of the offseason program], I'm pretty much where I wanted to be." Watson has yet to participate in 11-on-11 drills, but he was spotted practicing without a brace on Tuesday. Barring a setback, he will be ready for camp.

Cardinals promoted QBs coach Byron Leftwich to offensive coordinator.

It's been a fast rise for Leftwich, who was last a player in 2012. He began his coaching career under ex-Cardinals coach Bruce Arians and was a holdover for new coach Steve Wilks. With OC Mike McCoy getting fired after Thursday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos, Leftwich now gets his time to put his mark on the offense. First order of business should be getting David Johnson the ball in space. Leftwich played and learned under the aggressive Arians. It's a no-risk move.

Cardinals fired OC Mike McCoy.

The Cardinals had to make this move. Once viewed as an up-and-coming offensive mind after his work in Denver with Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow, McCoy got a head-coaching gig in San Diego, lasting four years there before then going back to Denver last year as their OC. He was fired mid-season, and has now been canned the second-straight year in the middle of the year. McCoy has about run his course as a play-caller. QBs coach Byron Leftwich is Arizona's new OC.

David Johnson rushed 14 times for 39 yards in the Cardinals' Week 7 loss to the Broncos, adding three receptions for 31 additional yards.

If you were watching, you know how infuriating this was. The Cardinals' clueless coaching staff continued to run Johnson right up the middle, only looking to get him into space deep into garbage time in the fourth quarter. It was play-calling so bad it had to be seen to be believed. That's been a theme all season, of course. It appears tonight's disaster could cost OC Mike McCoy his job. Even if it does, Johnson will have a hard time hitting RB1 value against the 49ers' middle-of-the-road run defense in Week 8. There is shockingly little talent around him.

Emmanuel Sanders caught 6-of-7 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals, adding a 28-yard touchdown pass.

Sanders nearly overthrew Courtland Sutton on his wide-open touchdown throw in the first quarter, but the rookie was able to extend and make the catch. Sanders was left completely wide open on his 64-yard receiving score in the second quarter, as reserve S Rudy Ford seemed to have no idea what was going on. Sanders has now cleared 100 yards receiving in back-to-back games and 3-of-7 on the year. Case Keenum's play has often been ugly, but he has no qualms about looking Sanders' way. The Chiefs' burnable defense is on deck for a mouthwatering Week 8 matchup.

Phillip Lindsay rushed 14 times for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Cardinals.

Lindsay added a six-yard reception. It felt like Lindsay was delivering chunk gains every time he touched the ball, so it was disappointing that he got the rock just 16 times in a 45-10 victory. Part of the problem was short drives, as five Cardinals turnovers kept setting the Broncos up with gorgeous field position. Seven of Lindsay's 14 carries gained at least five yards, while five gained at least nine. Lindsay also had a 24-yarder called back by holding. Running circles around Royce Freeman every week — although good in his own right most of the year, Freeman went just 13/37/1 this evening — Lindsay is well established as an RB2.

Josh Rosen completed 21-of-39 passes for 194 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Cardinals' 45-10, Week 7 loss to the Broncos, also losing two fumbles.

Two of Rosen's picks were housed for scores. Rosen also tweaked his toe on the final play of the game but said he was "fine." This was one of the worst starts you will ever see from an NFL quarterback. Although he was getting zero help from his play-calling, Rosen was inexcusably bad, delivering passes late and not feeling pressure. He was lucky to escape with "only" five turnovers. Rosen does not have the biggest arm for a first-round quarterback, and it showed this evening. Which brings us back to the play-calling. OC Mike McCoy seems to have zero awareness of Rosen's strengths and weaknesses, dialing up one sideline out after another while all but ignoring play action. There's a strong chance he's fired during the Cardinals' "mini bye" and replaced by QBs coach Byron Leftwich.

Broncos S Darian Stewart was forced from Thursday's game against the Cardinals with a neck injury and will not return.

Stewart took a helmet to the head and was down on the ground for several moments. He did eventually get to the sideline under his own power. He was initially called questionable before being ruled out in the second quarter.

Allen Robinson (groin) was downgraded to "DNP" on Thursday.

Robinson had been "limited" on Wednesday. The Chicago Tribune considers Robinson's status for Sunday's game against the Patriots "unknown." Robinson's absence would thrust Taylor Gabriel into a potential WR2 role while also creating more target opportunities for Trey Burton, Tarik Cohen and Anthony Miller.

Paul Richardson had his ailing knee re-examined on Thursday.

If there's good news, it's that an MRI was not required. "We’re trying to get to the bottom of it," coach Jay Gruden said. "We’re being extra cautious right now." Richardson's Week 7 availability appears genuinely up in the air. The Redskins promoted WR Jehu Chesson from the practice squad on Thursday.

Saints placed WR Ted Ginn (knee) on injured reserve.

Ginn injured his knee in Week 4 and apparently did not make enough progress during the Saints' Week 6 bye for the team to stick it out. We would assume the 33-year-old deep threat will be a candidate for return after missing the required eight weeks. In the interim, third-rounder Tre'Quan Smith is going to be the main beneficiary. Smith already rained hellfire on the Redskins in Ginn's Week 5 absence. He's worth a flier in all leagues where he remains unowned.
Oct 18 - 4:46 PM

NFL suspended Cowboys WR Terrance Williams three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

The suspension is related to Williams' May arrest for public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident. It comes at a fortuitous time, as he is currently on injured reserve with a foot issue. Williams will be a candidate for return later this year.
