Free agent QB Paxton Lynch worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Lynch has visited a handful of teams since being waived by the Broncos in early September, but he hasn't signed anything yet. The Titans current backup to Marcus Mariota is Blaine Gabbert, so working out quarterbacks isn't the worst idea for Tennessee. The Titans also worked out former Jaguars TE Ben Koyack.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins will "most likely" place Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve.

Wilson doesn't need hip surgery, but the Dolphins want to give him time to recover correctly, so he will hit the injured reserve. Wilson, who can't return once he's placed on IR since the Fins already designated two players to return this season, is still only 26 years old and will be back with the Dolphins next season. With Kenny Stills ruled out for Week 8, the Dolphins will trot out Danny Amendola, Jakeem Grant, and DeVante Parker.

Updating an earlier item, Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL following an MRI.

The Cowboys had been hopeful Swain would be ready for Week 9 coming off their bye, but that is looking unlikely now. If Swaim can't go against the Titans, some combination of Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers will attempt to catch passes.

Speaking following the Giants' trade of CB Eli Apple, coach Pat Shurmur said the team has no plans to bench Eli Manning.

In other words, even though they are tanking, the G-Men won't bench their quarterback. Of course, you could easily argue leaving Manning in augments the tank. Coming off his best game of the season, Manning will be a low-end QB2 against the Redskins. Washington likes to dominate time of possession and keep the opposing offense off the field, limiting plays.

Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim is undergoing an MRI for a knee injury and will not practice during the team's Week 8 bye.

Coach Jason Garrett is "hopeful" it will be a short-term injury, but an MRI is never a good sign. The 2015 seventh-rounder has 19 grabs in seven games after entering 2018 with nine career catches.

Bengals placed TE Mason Schreck on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

TE Jordan Franks has been promoted from the practice squad in the corresponding roster move. Schreck is the third Bengals tight end to get injured this season. Hold on to your C.J. Uzomahs tight.

Raiders signed K Daniel Carlson.

The Raiders are moving on from Matthew McCrane as they wait on Mike Nugent (hip) to get healthy. A fifth-round rookie out of Auburn, Carlson was cut by the Vikings following a disastrous two-week stint. The Raiders are getting their tank on, and Carlson was good in the SEC, so they are taking a no-risk gamble as they play for draft position and wait on Nugent.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports "all options," including release, are on the table for Broncos QB Chad Kelly following his arrest.

The Broncos' No. 2 quarterback has a history of off-the-field issues dating back to his time at Ole Miss. It's why he fell to the final picks of the 2017 draft. The fact that Kelly hasn't already been waived and that it's merely "on the table" suggests he will ultimately keep his roster spot. The Broncos can't be playing games behind Case Keenum, who is a weekly threat to go off the rails.
Oct 23 - 2:49 PM

NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports John Ross (groin) will be sidelined "a few weeks."

Ross aggravated an existing groin ailment in Week 7. The No. 9 overall pick of the 2017 draft simply cannot stay healthy. Ross has seven career catches.
Oct 23 - 2:04 PM

Danny Amendola (shoulder) remained "limited" on Tuesday.

There does not seem to be any concern about Amendola's Thursday night status. With Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson out, Amendola will be in the WR3 mix.
Oct 23 - 1:25 PM

Albert Wilson (hip) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Texans.

Kenny Stills (groin) has also been ruled out, leaving Danny Amendola and Jakeem Grant as the Dolphins' top-two wideouts. DeVante Parker should also be active after his recent de facto healthy scratches.
Oct 23 - 1:19 PM

Eagles signed RB Donnel Pumphrey to their practice squad.

A fourth-round pick by the Eagles last year, Pumphrey has struggled to stick on a roster to this point in his career, but this is still notable given Philly's struggles at running back and Darren Sproles' lingering hamstring injury.
Oct 23 - 1:01 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos QB Chad Kelly was charged with first-degree criminal trespassing following an incident in Englewood, Colorado early Tuesday morning.

According to the police report, Englewood officers responded to a call about a man standing outside a residence around 1:17 in the morning. By the time they arrived, the man had entered the residence and been chased away by the occupant. Police eventually found a man who matched the description, later identified as Kelly. "We are disappointed that Chad Kelly was arrested early this morning," the Broncos said in a statement. "Our organization has been in contact with Chad, and we are in the process of gathering more information." Kelly lasted until the final pick of the 2017 draft because of several issues off the field in college including an arrest following a bar fight in Buffalo.

Free agent K Cairo Santos worked out for the Colts Tuesday.

As did Kai Forbath and Taylor Bertolet. The Colts are doing their due diligence with Adam Vinatieri dealing with a groin injury. Santos spent two games with the Rams earlier this season.
Oct 23 - 12:20 PM

Jets signed WR Rishard Matthews.

This comes just a week after Matthews said he was unlikely to sign with a team this season. With Quincy Enunwa (ankle) out indefinitely and Terrelle Pryor no longer on the roster, this is a good landing spot for Matthews, but it will likely take him some time to settle in. He is only deep-league stash at this point.
