Quarterback

QB | Matthew Stafford | Detroit Lions | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) is taking part in practice Friday, Oct. 28, and moving around well.

QB | Cam Newton | Carolina Panthers | Fantasy
The Carolina Panthers have scored 14 touchdowns and nine field goals in 28 trips inside the red zone. As a result, the Panthers have left 71 points on the field. According to QB Cam Newton, he has to do a better job of protecting the football in the red zone.

QB | Tarvaris Jackson | Seattle Seahawks | Injury, Fantasy
Seattle Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson (shoulder, pectoral) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

QB | Tony Romo | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (ribs) expects to receive another pain-killing injection to treat his fractured rib before the Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. "It looks like this week we might do all the same stuff as last week," Romo said, referring to taking a shot and wearing a protective vest. "It looks that way. We'll see after this week." He hasn't had any setbacks during his recovery, and his ability to move around is increasing slowly.

QB | Sam Bradford | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

QB | Michael Vick | Philadelphia Eagles | Fantasy
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid made some adjustments in Week 6 with some things that hadn't worked in the first five weeks of the season. The "wide 9" defense was tightened up, which resulted in the defensive ends being pinched closer to the tackles to stop the Washington Redskins' running game. QB Michael Vick used three-step drops to get rid of the ball sooner. RB LeSean McCoy was allowed to run out the clock when the team had a sizeable lead late in the game. This could be a sign that they will make even more changes coming out of their bye week, like possibly playing their cornerbacks in tighter coverage.

QB | Kevin Kolb | Arizona Cardinals | Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb explained that his drop backs in the team's offense are different from anything he ever did when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles. "Usually your drops match certain route concepts. There are different route concepts here so you can imagine how that changes your footwork. We have a lot of route changing going on during the play. I'm trying to adjust on the fly sometimes and I'm not used to do that. I'm used to coming back seven steps, hit your back foot, one hitch, boom get it out," Kolb said. With the Cardinals, his drops vary from three steps, five steps and seven steps.


Running Back

RB | Mike Tolbert | San Diego Chargers | Injury
San Diego Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley, recently signed off of the team's practice squad, may see action in Week 8 if RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring) is unable to play.

RB | Adrian Peterson | Minnesota Vikings | Fantasy
Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said RB Adrian Peterson's pass-catching role might elevate after the coaching staff discussed how to get Peterson even more involved and help early-down efficiency. Peterson was a viable target for former QB Brett Favre, averaging 30 catches for 293 yards from 2009-10. However, through seven games this season, Peterson has just 11 catches for 49 yards. Finding creative ways to get Peterson the ball can help the offense avoid third-and-long situations. "That's what happened to us in the second half the other day; we weren't as efficient on first and second downs," Musgrave said. "Third down we completed some passes, made some plays. But we were much better in the first half on first- and second-down passing than we were in the third. A lot of that may have to do with getting Adrian the ball and not just thinking receivers and tight ends."
