Falcons third-round LB Duke Riley will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

Riley has made five starts in six games, playing 189 snaps as a part-time player in coach Dan Quinn's defense. It's unclear how much damage Riley has to his meniscus, but he's likely to miss at a minimum of four weeks.

Eagles LT Jason Peters was carted off Week 7 against the Redskins with a right knee injury.

His knee got hit from the outside and bent inward in a gruesome way. He writhed on the field in pain before trainers had to fit him for an air cast and eventually cart him off the field. It's almost surely a season-ending injury for the 35-year-old. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has replaced Peters at left tackle.

Free agent DE Dwight Freeney is visiting the Seahawks.

Seattle is dripping with pass-rush talent, from Michael Bennett to Frank Clark to Sheldon Richardson and even former Eagles first-round bust Marcus Smith, so this could be more of a look-see and checkup on a veteran. Now 37, Freeney was still productive on limited snaps with the Falcons in 2016.

Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks was carted off Week 7 against the Redskins with an ankle injury.

Hicks came into the game questionable with a calf injury but made the start and was injured on the second play of the game while trying to cover Vernon Davis. He had to be carried off the field and then carted to the locker room. Nigel Bradham slid to middle linebacker with Najee Goode playing WILL.

Wendell Smallwood (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Redskins.

He's back after missing the previous two games. LeGarrette Blount has settled in as the Eagles' lead back on early downs, but this backfield is always open for change. Smallwood can't be trusted as a fantasy starter Monday night, but he should mix in on pass downs. Inactive for the Eagles are LB Mychal Kendricks, CB Ronald Darby, WR Shelton Gibson, DT Justin Hamilton, OG Chance Warmack, DT Elijah Qualls, and DE Steven Means.
Oct 23 - 7:12 PM

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Eagles.

With Josh Norman (ribs) out, Breeland is essentially the Redskins' No. 1 corner.
Oct 23 - 7:09 PM

Rob Kelley (ankle) is active for Week 7 against the Eagles.

LT Trent Williams and CB Bashaud Breeland are also both active for Monday night after all three were listed as questionable. Kelley is expected to get the start, but he's a low-floor, low-upside RB3. Inactive for the Redskins are CB Josh Norman, OT Ty Nsekhe, S Deshazor Everett, LB Josh Harvey-Clemons, OG Tyler Catalina, TE Jeremy Sprinkle, and DL A.J. Francis.

NFL suspended Vikings FS Andrew Sendejo one game for violating the league's player safety rules.

Sendejo illegally hit Mike Wallace on Sunday, giving him a concussion. Sendejo was previously fined earlier this season for a big hit on Cameron Brate, so the suspension is next in line after a fine. Sendejo will probably appeal. For now, he's out for Week 8 in London against Cleveland. The Vikings then have a Week 9 bye before coming back stateside for a road date in Washington.

Breshad Perriman (concussion) returned to Ravens practice on Monday.

It gives him a shot to play on Thursday Night Football against the Dolphins. On the season, Perriman has caught just 4-of-18 targets for 26 scoreless yards.
Oct 23 - 5:11 PM

Golden Tate (shoulder) did not practice on Monday.

He was still in a sling as of Saturday. Tate is not expected to play in Week 8, and the secretive Lions have provided no concrete timetable for his return.
Oct 23 - 5:07 PM

Carson Palmer is hopeful he can return from his broken left arm in 4-6 weeks.

He's going for a second opinion on Monday. Palmer's initial timeline was eight weeks, so 4-6 weeks would be a significant improvement. The injury is to Palmer's left (non-throwing) arm, perhaps giving him a better shot at a sooner-than-expected return. The Cardinals insist they will be riding with Drew Stanton in the meantime. We would humbly suggest they give Blaine Gabbert a longer look.

Bills waived WR Kaelin Clay.

Clay played 59 percent of Buffalo's offensive snaps as recently as Week 5, but he performed poorly and quickly fell out of favor. It's never a good sign when a wide receiver gets cut by a team as wide receiver needy as the Bills.
Oct 23 - 4:51 PM

Lions waived QB Brad Kaaya.

He goes to make room for DT Khyri Thornton, whom the Lions activated from the reserve/suspended list. Kaaya was Detroit's sixth-round pick in April.
Oct 23 - 4:41 PM

Colts OLB John Simon is week to week with a stinger.

"He'll miss some time," were coach Chuck Pagano's words on Monday. Simon has been one of the Colts' best defensive players this season, so his loss will be felt in addition to playmaking FS Malik Hooker's (ACL, MCL).
Oct 23 - 4:39 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 8.

We're not holding our breath on a Luck 2017 return.
