Jaguars LT Cam Robinson's (ankle) MRI has come back negative.

Oct 23 - 1:55 PM

Texans CB Kevin Johnson (MCL) has resumed practicing.

Johnson has been sidelined since Week 2, but has a real shot at returning Sunday against the Seahawks. Johnson would be a big boost for a defense that's been gutted by injury the past few weeks.

Martavis Bryant says he missed mandatory team meetings on Monday because he was at the doctor.

It's the flimsiest of excuses, though it is what a teammate told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Bryant also missed practice time earlier this season with an illness. Either way, we wouldn't be hearing about this unless it was done without the Steelers' knowledge. Bryant has made his frustration loud and clear the past two weeks. The situation should come to a head in the next few days.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Martavis Bryant skipped mandatory team meetings on Monday.

This is escalating quickly. One of Bryant's teammates told beat writer Ed Bouchette the oft-suspended receiver "called in sick." Coming off a two-touch game, Bryant trashed JuJu Smith-Schuster, as well as the team, on Instagram. Bryant wants a trade, but unless the Steelers are desperate to get him out of the locker room, it's unclear what their motivation would be to deal him. Right now he provides proven play-making depth. Either way, a suspension could be coming.

Dolphins LT Laremy Tunsil (knee) is expected to be fine for Thursday Night Football.

Tunsil's injury was not as serious as it looked. The short week does provide a challenge, but it sounds like he will be out there on Matt Moore's blindside.
Oct 23 - 1:25 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase confirms Jay Cutler is dealing with cracked ribs, and will be sidelined for Week 8.

With the Dolphins playing on Thursday Night Football, Cutler had no shot at being ready for Week 8. He's expected to be sidelined 2-3 weeks. Matt Moore provided an immediate spark on Sunday, but Gase has been adamant Cutler will be the team's starter when healthy. Moore has a tough short-week assignment in the Ravens.
Oct 23 - 1:19 PM

Bills CB E.J. Gaines (hamstring) is considered day to day.

Gaines was ruled out in the second half Sunday. Hamstring injuries can be particularly tricky for corners, who have to constantly stop and start. Gaines has been having a solid first season in Buffalo, but fighting through injuries, notably a shoulder issue.
Oct 23 - 1:17 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys K Dan Bailey (groin) is expected to miss "several weeks."

This appeared to be the likely outcome after Bailey was quickly ruled out against the 49ers. Dallas will work out free agent Ks Jason Myers, Mike Nugent, Sam Irwin Hill, and Younghoe Koo this week.

Browns announced LT Joe Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a torn left triceps.

An MRI confirmed the injury on Monday, and Thomas will likely be placed on injured reserve this week. It is a devastating blow for the Browns which also ends Thomas' streak of 167 consecutive starts. Spencer Drango replaced Thomas at left tackle on Sunday.
Oct 23 - 12:30 PM

Ravens signed TE Gavin Escobar.

A second-round pick of the Cowboys in 2013, Escobar could not stick with the Chiefs out of training camp this year. The Ravens need pass-catching help, but it is unlikely Escobar carves out a fantasy-worthy role. OL Tony Bergstrom was cut in a corresponding move.
Oct 23 - 12:11 PM

An MRI confirmed Browns LT Joe Thomas has a torn triceps.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the veteran is still exploring his options, but this is almost certainly a season-ending injury. It is a tough break for a player who had not missed a snap in 11 seasons. Spencer Drango replaced Thomas at left tackle on Sunday.
Oct 23 - 12:08 PM

Cowboys will work out free agent Ks Jason Myers, Mike Nugent, Sam Irwin Hill, and Younghoe Koo.

The workouts are necessary with Dan Bailey (groin) injured, although the Cowboys have yet to rule him out for this week's matchup with the Redskins. Myers was let go by the Jaguars last week, Koo opened the season with the Chargers, and Irwin Hill spent time with the Cowboys in training camp.
Oct 23 - 12:03 PM

Hunter Henry played 47-of-58 snaps (81%) Week 7 against the Broncos.

If there was any doubt about the Chargers' No. 1 tight end after Henry out-snapped Antonio Gates 100-to-75 the previous two games, those were put to bed on Sunday. Gates ended the game with one target in 18 snaps, and Henry led the team with four catches for 73 yards. With a great matchup against the Patriots up next, Henry is a locked-in TE1.
Oct 23 - 11:51 AM

Jamaal Charles played 15-of-64 snaps (23%) Week 7 against the Chargers.

Despite coach Vance Joseph saying Charles would get more work moving forward, he once again hovered in the 20-30 percent snap range he has occupied all season. His eight touches were more than the six he saw each of the previous two games, but he has yet to top 10 in a game this season. Until we actually see his role grow, Charles is no more than a bench stash.
Oct 23 - 11:48 AM

George Kittle played 31-of-66 snaps (47%) Week 7 against the Cowboys.

It is a massive disappointing considering Kittle played over 90 percent of the snaps the week before and surprising in a game the 49ers were down big throughout. He also tied a season-low with just two targets against the Cowboys. With a bad matchup against the Eagles on deck, Kittle will be just a low-end streaming option this week.
