Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

QB | Carson Palmer | Oakland Raiders | Fantasy
Oakland Raiders QB Carson Palmer received a ton of reps during the team's up-tempo practice Tuesday, Oct. 25. The goal was to get Palmer up to speed in the offense before the team's Week 9 game. "This was a regular season practice, but we always have the ability to do what we call 10-10-10," head coach Hue Jackson said. "We have 10 plays and 10 plays and 10 plays, and it's up-tempo, it's fast and we go. But there's still a lot of fundamental and technique things that we're working on."

QB | Mark Sanchez | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez said Tuesday, Oct. 25, that he and WR Plaxico Burress are getting onto the same page. "I think it's just kind of all coming together at once," Sanchez said. This isn't over. It's a constant effort and a constant process we're going through to get (our) chemistry down, and it looked good Sunday down near the end zone and it has to get better." Burress ended up giving the three balls from this touchdowns to his son.

QB | Kerry Collins | Indianapolis Colts | Injury, Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy

The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent QB J.P. Losman (Seahawks) and placed QB Sage Rosenfels (illness) on the Non-Football Illness List in a corresponding move Tuesday, Oct. 25.


Running Back

RB | DeMarco Murray | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is unlikely to receive 25 carries again, as he did during the team's Week 7 game. Murray's 25 carries were the most by a Cowboys player since RB Marion Barber III rushed 25 times in October 2008. Starting RB Felix Jones has never carried the ball more than 22 times in one game for the Cowboys. "Certainly the trend in the NFL over the last 15 or 20 years is to use multiple backs," head coach Jason Garrett said. "The days of Emmitt Smith carrying it 30 times a game for 16 straight weeks, I don't know if those exist anymore."

RB | Jeremiah Johnson | Denver Broncos | Free Agents
Denver Broncos executive vice president John Elway said the team will explore its options as far as adding a third running back with RB Willis McGahee (hand) out. RB Jeremiah Johnson is an option from the practice squad, but Elway also didn't rule out signing a free agent.

RB | Willis McGahee | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said RB Willis McGahee's surgery to repair a fractured index finger "went very well" Tuesday, Oct. 25. McGahee is expected to miss one to two weeks.

New Orleans Saints RBs Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas each saw 26 snaps on offense in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts, while RB Mark Ingram was in for 27 snaps.

RB | Tiki Barber | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers do not appear to have any interest in free-agent RB Tiki Barber (Giants), who might be the biggest name on the free-agent market.

RB | Mike Tolbert | San Diego Chargers | Injury, Fantasy
San Diego Chargers RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring) appeared to be better Tuesday, Oct. 25, after tweaking his hamstring in Week 7.

RB | Ray Rice | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday, Oct. 25, that RB Ray Rice wasn't benched in the Week 7 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, refuting speculation by the ESPN telecast team.

RB | Darren McFadden | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Fantasy
Tests on Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden's (foot) right foot showed no structural damage, according to head coach Hue Jackson. McFadden will be rested during the team's bye week in hopes that he can play in Week 9 against the Denver Broncos.

RB | Jacquizz Rodgers | Atlanta Falcons | Fantasy
Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers could see an expanded role behind RB Michael Turner with RB Jason Snelling moving to full back duties with FB Ovie Mughelli (knee) out for the season.

RB | Ryan Mathews | San Diego Chargers | Injury, Fantasy
San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (thumb) had his left thumb wrapped Monday, Oct. 24, but he is expected to suit up against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8.

RB | Tim Hightower | Washington Redskins | Injury, Transaction, Fantasy
The Washington Redskins placed RB Tim Hightower (knee) and TE Chris Cooley (finger, knee) on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, Oct. 25, ending both of their seasons. Cooley had surgery to fix a broken hand.

RB | Beanie Wells | Arizona Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (knee) knows he won't need to undergo surgery on his right knee injury, but the team still does not know exactly what part of his knee is injured. Wells' knee kept "locking up" during the team's Week 7 game. It is unclear if the injury is related to an allergic reaction that he had to an injection. "Some of the locking symptoms people talk about could mean something inside the knee is loose or misplaced: a meniscus tear or a loose piece of cartilage or bone, or an injury to the joint cartilage, if it's a big enough piece. That's some of the most common things if there is "true" locking," Dr. Orr Limpisvasti said.

RB | Earnest Graham | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Injury, Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed RB Earnest Graham (Achilles') on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, Oct. 25, and also waived C Christian Yount.

RB | Kregg Lumpkin | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Injury, Fantasy
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hoping that RB LeGarrette Blount (knee) will be able to return to the starting lineup following their Week 8 bye. If Blount can't go in Week 9, RB Kregg Lumpkin will get the start, unless the team signs someone from the practice squad.


Fullback

FB | Marcel Reece | Oakland Raiders | Injury
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece (ankle) said Tuesday, Oct. 25, that he is 100 percent, and hopeful of playing in Week 9 against the Denver Broncos. "Everything feels good," Reece said. "I'm just excited to be back with my teammates."

FB | Mike Cox | Atlanta Falcons | Injury, Transaction

Wide Receiver

WR | Deon Butler | Seattle Seahawks | Injury

WR | Terrell Owens | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Jacksonville Jaguars have no interest in signing free-agent WR Terrell Owens (Bengals).

WR | Dez Bryant | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he is concerned about using WR Dez Bryant on punt returns on a full-time basis for fear of risking injury. "Now, the game is one that you risk injury on every play, but because he just refuses to go down which is a great thing about him then you've got to watch using that in situations like kick returns," Jones said. "We'll monitor that as the year goes. We'll play that by ear as to when he'll actually return the ball. We've got to watch him."

WR | Lance Moore | New Orleans Saints | Fantasy
New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore managed just 26 snaps in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts. That was much fewer than WRs Marques Colston (42), Robert Meachem (39) and Devery Henderson (38).

WR | Plaxico Burress | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez said Tuesday, Oct. 25, that he and WR Plaxico Burress are getting onto the same page. "I think it's just kind of all coming together at once," Sanchez said. This isn't over. It's a constant effort and a constant process we're going through to get (our) chemistry down, and it looked good Sunday down near the end zone and it has to get better." Burress ended up giving the three balls from this touchdowns to his son.

WR | Jeremy Kerley | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez said Tuesday, Oct. 25, that the team is happy with WR Jeremy Kerley, although he wouldn't touch on the debate between Kerley and the departed WR Derrick Mason (Texans). "I don't know, they're different players at different stages of their career," Sanchez said. "But we're happy with what we see in Kerley. He's explosive, he's excited and you should see that guy light up when he gets on the field. We had pretty good chemistry so far and we just need to work it."

WR | Dexter M. Jackson | Free Agent | Free Agents
The New York Jets worked out free-agent WR Dexter M. Jackson (UFL) Tuesday, Oct. 25.

WR | Trindon Holliday | Free Agent | Transaction, Free Agents

WR | Torrey Smith | Baltimore Ravens | Injury, Fantasy
Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith said when he left the Week 7 game in the fourth quarter Monday, Oct. 24, against the Jacksonville Jaguars, it wasn't due to injury, but he just had his wind knocked out. "It was a nice hit," Smith said. "He knocked the wind out of me."

WR | Lee Evans | Baltimore Ravens | Injury
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was noncommittal about the availability of WR Lee Evans (ankle) and OG Ben Grubbs (toe) for Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. "As far as Lee and Ben, we'll just have to see as the week goes on," Harbaugh said. "I'm at the point now where I'm not even thinking about it until they come back because I think you give those guys a chance to heal fully where they're not going to be re-injured again."

WR | Braylon Edwards | San Francisco 49ers | Injury, Fantasy
San Francisco 49ers WR Braylon Edwards (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Oct. 25. He ran short, intermediate and deep routes at top speed. It was his first time on the field since arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee Sept. 19. It appears he'll be available in Week 8 against the Cleveland Browns, his original NFL team.

WR | Louis Murphy | Oakland Raiders | Fantasy
Oakland Raiders WR Louis Murphy admits missing a big chunk of training camp with hamstring and groin injuries has set him back in his development this year. Murphy had four targets in Week 7 but no catches for the second straight week.

WR | Wes Welker | New England Patriots | Fantasy
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said CB Ike Taylor won't cover New England Patriots WR Wes Welker for the entire game in Week 8 because of the frequency with which Welker lines up in the slot.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced Wednesday, Oct. 26, they have re-signed free-agent TE Anthony Becht. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

TE | Todd Heap | Arizona Cardinals | Injury
Arizona Cardinals TE Todd Heap (hamstring) could miss the team's Week 8 game with a hamstring injury. "It's honestly hard to say," Heap said. "There are a lot of other injuries where I could say 100 percent I'm playing in this game. Hamstrings are a different issue. With these things, you just take it one day a time. As much as I'd want to say what's exactly going to happen, I can't say much more than that."

TE | Chris Cooley | Washington Redskins | Injury
Many believe that Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley (finger, knee) has played his last game for the team after being placed on Injured Reserve. However, Cooley could return next season if both sides work out another deal that allows Cooley a chance to try and come back and show how his knee is progressing.

TE | Jimmy Graham | New Orleans Saints | Fantasy
New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham has been targeted 66 times through the first seven games, which is almost twice the number of any other receiver or tight end on the roster. QB Drew Brees has really zeroed in on him in the red zone thanks to Graham's 6-foot-6 height and leaping ability. Graham is starting to draw double teams, especially in the red zone.

TE | Shawn Nelson | Free Agent | Free Agents
The New York Jets worked out free-agent TE Shawn Nelson (Bills) Tuesday, Oct. 25. The team faces the Buffalo Bills in Week 9 after the bye.

TE | Antonio Gates | San Diego Chargers | Injury, Fantasy

Place Kicker

PK | Billy A. Cundiff | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens PK Billy A. Cundiff misfired badly on a 52-yard field goal attempt to the left. It was just the third miss of the season for Cundiff. "It was an awful kick," Cundiff said. "Of all my misses with the Ravens, it's my worst one."

PK | Sebastian Janikowski | Oakland Raiders | Injury, Transaction, Free Agents, Fantasy
