Owen Daniels (knee) missed practice again Friday.

Daniels' injury is "relatively minor." He's been getting routine off days all season, so it's possible the Ravens just gave the soon-to-be 32-year-old the whole week off. He's expected to play. Daniels will be in the TE1 mix vs. Cincinnati.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports there's "fear" Chargers CB Jason Verrett made his shoulder injury worse in Thursday night's loss to the Broncos.

Verrett was a surprise active for the Week 8 tilt, but ended up re-injuring the shoulder in the first half. He was forced into action against Peyton Manning and Co. because fellow top CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) was already out. Now, Verrett may miss "significant time." The No. 25 overall pick in May's draft has been the Bolts' second-best corner behind Flowers this season.

Trent Richardson (hamstring) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Colts beat writers are puzzled by Richardson's absence again Friday after coach Chuck Pagano said Thursday that Richardson would likely be limited. Richardson didn't practice at all this week, leaving his status for Week 8 against the Steelers in serious doubt. Ahmad Bradshaw would get a serious boost.

A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

That's another clean sweep of DNPs for Green, which will likely rule him out for Week 8 against the Ravens. Green has strictly been doing conditioning drills on a side field all week. After last week's debacle against the Colts that saw three-and-out after three-and-out for the offense, the Bengals better figure out how to run the ball against Baltimore. Mo Sanu will dominate targets in the pass game.

Harry Douglas (foot) is questionable for Week 8 against the Lions.

Douglas has been out since Week 3. He'll be a game-time decision Sunday. If Douglas can't play, Devin Hester will once again handle No. 3 receiver duties.
Oct 24 - 11:00 AM

Julio Jones (ankle) is probable for Week 8 against the Lions.

Jones has been on the injury report the past couple weeks, but it's not an issue. He's our No. 5 receiver for Week 8 despite Atlanta's offensive struggles.
Oct 24 - 10:58 AM

Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Falcons.

It'll be Jordan Thompson and Kellen Davis at tight end for the Lions with Pettigrew, Eric Ebron (hamstring), and Joseph Fauria (ankle) all hurt.
Oct 24 - 10:46 AM

Eric Ebron (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Falcons.

Ebron remains week-to-week after hurting his hamstring in practice last week. Joseph Fauria (ankle) has also been ruled out. Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is doubtful.
Oct 24 - 10:44 AM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) is questionable for Week 8 against the Falcons.

Megatron will "truly be a game-time decision," according to Tim Twentyman of the Lions' team website. Johnson got in three limited practices this week and began cutting and running routes on the sprained ankle. At least we'll know Johnson's status early, as the Lions and Falcons kick off at 9:30 AM ET Sunday.
Oct 24 - 10:39 AM

Reggie Bush (ankle) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Falcons.

We can't trust anything Bush says. He declared himself 100 percent ready for Week 7, and Bush was barely used in the second half. This week, he said he's going to play against Atlanta in London. That appears unlikely. It'll be Joique Bell and Theo Riddick in the backfield for Detroit. Bell is our No. 17 running back.

Justin Hunter says he and Zach Mettenberger had a "good rhythm going" during training camp and preseason.

"I'm really interested to see how it will all turn out in a real game," Hunter continued. Of the Titans' regular receivers, sophomore Hunter spent the most time with Mettenberger's group over summer. The two showed great chemistry in the preseason when Hunter caught ten passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns. Mettenberger has a rocket arm unlike Checkdown Charlie Whithurst, and TE Delanie Walker says the deep ball will be a "focus" of the offense Week 8 against the Texans. Hunter knows how to run the "go" route.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer said all of his running backs will "have roles for us," and he'll continue to treat it as a week-to-week situation.

"I think that’s kind of good for us," Schottenheimer said. "For a defense not to know who they’ve got to prepare for. To know that at any moment it might be a different guy out there." Schottenheimer isn't fooling anyone. Anybody with working eyeballs can see Tre Mason is the Rams' most talented runner. If the Rams want to put the ball in Zac Stacy or Benny Cunningham's hands, they're playing to the defense's advantage. We're not -- and more importantly, defensive coordinators aren't -- buying Schottenheimer's mind trick. Mason's the guy.
Oct 24 - 10:00 AM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) remained limited at Friday's practice.

That's three limited sessions for Megatron this week. It's a gigantic step in the right direction, but we're still likely looking at a game-time decision. The good news is the Lions and Falcons kick off at 9:30 AM ET in London on Sunday, so we'll have the inactive list fairly early. Johnson's been cutting in practice this week.
Oct 24 - 9:48 AM

Eric Ebron (hamstring) remained sidelined at practice Friday.

Coach Jim Caldwell said there's a "very slim chance" Ebron or Joseph Fauria (ankle) plays against the Falcons. And Brandon Pettigrew (foot) is a "big question mark." Kellen Davis and Jordan Thompson are next up on the depth chart.
Oct 24 - 9:45 AM

Brandon Pettigrew (foot) remained sidelined at Lions practice Friday.

Coach Jim Caldwell called Pettigrew "a big question mark" for Sunday's Week 8 game against the Falcons. The Lions could be forced to turn to Jordan Thompson and Kellen Davis at tight end with Eric Ebron and Joseph Fauria also hurt.
