Dolphins activated S Reshad Jones from the reserve/suspended list.

Jones will slide back in as the Dolphins' starting strong safety, sending fill-in Jimmy Wilson back to the nickel/bench. An every-down player, Jones led all safeties in snaps last season, racking up 107 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one pick.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports a "pre-requisite" for ESPN's Jon Gruden to return to coaching would be a "franchise quarterback."

Per Breer, Gruden "really likes" Oakland's Derek Carr. Chucky is rumored to be atop the Raiders' wish list for a new head coach, but Gruden rumors have been an annual tradition with no pay off. At this point, Gruden is so comfortable — and good — in the broadcast booth we have a hard time believing he'd depart for a reunion with a team that's the biggest circus in all of football. Stranger things have happened, of course.

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

The "hope" is that Bridgewater will be ready for Wednesday's walk-through, but Bridgewater himself has made it clear that he's no sure thing for Thursday's game against the Packers. The short week couldn't be coming at a worse time for the Vikes, who could be forced to turn to Christian Ponder in an important divisional tilt.

Falcons signed OT Cameron Bradfield.

Bradfield started the first two games of the season for the Jaguars, but was released after a legendarily bad performance in Week 2. However, he has 27 games of starting experience, and could be forced to take over right tackle for the Falcons after Lamar Holmes (foot) was sent to injured reserve on Tuesday. Depth and injuries remain huge problems for the Falcons. Although rookie LT Jake Matthews is playing well, Matt Ryan's protection is going to be an issue.
Sep 30 - 2:31 PM

Falcons placed SS William Moore (shoulder) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Moore can resume practicing in Week 11, but won't be eligible to return until Week 13. Moore suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. Second-year seventh-rounder Kemal Ishmael appears poised to take his place in the starting lineup. Moore is a playmaker, but not a star. He's also had trouble staying healthy, appearing in all 16 games just twice in six NFL seasons.

Falcons placed RT Lamar Holmes on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

With C Joe Hawley (knee) also headed to injured reserve, the Falcons have promoted OG Harland Gunn and S Sean Baker from the practice squad. Forced into 19 starts over the past two seasons, Holmes has been a swinging gate on Matt Ryan's right side, but his loss leaves the Falcons with serious depth issues along the offensive line. Free agent signee Cameron Bradfield could take Holmes' place in the starting lineup. 25 years old, Holmes is heading into the final year of his rookie contract. Although he's due just $660,000, there's no guarantee he'll be back.

Falcons placed C Joe Hawley on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Hawley tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. RT Lamar Holmes (foot) is also done for the season. Although neither player could be considered a true asset, it's a brutal blow for a team getting ravaged by injury for the second-consecutive season. As evidenced on Hard Knocks, Hawley was at least adept at setting the tone. The Falcons will now be forced to turn to 2012 draft bust Peter Konz in the middle. Still only 26 (in October), Hawley is under contract for 2015. He'll face competition.
Sep 30 - 2:12 PM

Texans waived S Shiloh Keo.

S Josh Aubrey was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. An 11-game starter in place of Ed Reed last season, Keo had yet to appear in a game as he battled a calf injury. Largely ineffective in 2013, Keo has made 42 career appearances. Three months shy of his 27th birthday, he'll search for reserve/special teams work.
Sep 30 - 2:07 PM

Raiders named OL coach Tony Sparano interim head coach.

Sparano, who coached the Dolphins from 2008-11, gets the nod over OC Greg Olson. Olson has no head-coaching experience. A Bill Parcells disciple, Sparano is now most (in)famous for his Wild Cat flirtations with Tim Tebow in New York, but he should be a solid guiding hand for the final 12 games of the season. We wouldn't consider him a strong candidate for the full-time gig, but the Raiders have a knack for making poor decisions. We wouldn't rule anything out.
Sep 30 - 2:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin (knee, groin) sat out Tuesday's practice.

It appears Boykin will miss his second straight game on Thursday, again leaving Davante Adams as the Packers' No. 3 receiver against the Vikings. Boykin is droppable in 12-team leagues.
Sep 30 - 1:51 PM

Jordan Cameron admits the sprained AC joint in his shoulder is going to be an issue for the rest of the season, but says he "(feels) healthy."

Cameron "(feels) good" coming off the Browns' bye week. The issue will be at risk of aggravation for the entire season, but Cameron will be a TE1 whenever he takes the field. Cleveland is traveling to Tennessee for Week 5.
Sep 30 - 1:31 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams says there's "nothing torn" in his right knee, and that he's "hopeful" of starting Monday's game against the Seahawks.

Williams didn't even undergo an MRI after departing last week's blowout loss, and has "no instability" in his knee. If there's a reason he could be held out, it's the Redskins' short turnaround between Weeks 5 and 6. Sitting Monday would give Williams over two weeks of rest. That could be the best course of action to keep him on the field for the rest of 2014.
Sep 30 - 1:19 PM

Jamaal Charles (ankle) escaped his Week 4 return with nothing more than normal soreness.

Charles will likely be limited in practice on Wednesday with the Chiefs on a short week, but he'll be ready to rock for Sunday's showdown with the 49ers. If there was a concern from Monday's win, it was Knile Davis getting 17 touches, but it was largely game-flow related, while Charles missed some time with cramps. Even with Davis getting work, Charles will continue to monopolize red-zone touches. Charles is back to being a weekly top-three option at running back.
Sep 30 - 1:14 PM

Chiefs WR Donnie Avery has been diagnosed with an abductor strain.

It's a hip injury, one that's more common in baseball than football. It's uncertain how long Avery might be sidelined, but he should be considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers, especially since the Chiefs are on bye in Week 6. Avery has just seven catches for 72 yards since filling in as the Chiefs' No. 1 receiver in Week 1.
Sep 30 - 1:10 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) remains questionable for Thursday's game against the Packers.

Bridegwater "may" get some reps in Tuesday's practice. He says he's doing much better than he was Sunday, but is likely headed for a game-time call. If Bridgewater can't go, Christian Ponder would start and the Packers D/ST would be in play as a strong streamer.
