*** Thursday Update *** QB Carson Palmer (ARI) Raiders head coach Hue Jackson said Wednesday, Nov. 16, that Carson Palmer's leadership abilities alone was worth the price the team paid to acquire him. "I know everybody within this organization has been criticized about the move, about making that decision to bring him here," Jackson said. "That's fine. Everybody has their opinion, and I get that. At the end of the day, all those characteristics that you guys have seen him exhibit is why he's here. That's what you go out and get that guy because of (his leadership)."

*** Friday Update *** QB Carson Palmer (ARI) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this weekend.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Carson Palmer (ARI) practiced fully on Thursday.

QB Carson Palmer (ARI) received a pain-killing injection in his shoulder prior to the team's Week 10 game, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Carson Palmer (ARI) will not play in Week 11.

QB Carson Palmer (ARI) will miss a fifth straight game because of his elbow injury; the team has declared him out for week 11, leaving Ryan Fitzpatrick to start in his place. Palmer had his elbow re-examined during the bye, but the results didn't show anything new or different. "Same plan," HC Marvin Lewis said. "Hasn't changed - it's where it's been. Everything seems to be on schedule as far as everybody can tell, which they won't know until they say, 'Hey, go ahead and start throwing.' There's been no indication he needs surgery, other than that would be a drastic measure."

QB Carson Palmer (ARI) The Bengals have pulled the decision-making reins in on Palmer. "We changed things up a little bit and put things back in OC Bob Bratkowski's hands a little bit more and took it out of the quarterback's hands," said HC Marvin Lewis. Palmer completed 31 of 42 passes for a career-high 440 yards and three touchdowns, while the Bengals gained 545 yards of total offense.

QB Drew Stanton (ARI) got his first NFL action as part of a goal line package during Week 10's loss to Jacksonville. With only three days of practice in the Lions' system, Daunte Culpepper was held out on some plays. Stanton also came on in relief in the fourth quarter. He completed six of eight passes for 94 yards and a touchdown pass. He also led the final scoring drive. No word on whether his reps will increase for Week 11 or beyond.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Schaub (ATL) said during a radio appearance Tuesday, Nov. 15, he hopes he can return this season from a foot injury, though he acknowledges "it doesn't look good." Schaub said he'll meet with more doctors over the next week. "When you look at it, it's pretty colorful and everything," Schaub said of his foot. "It's pretty sore and beat up right now. But we're going to search out some other opinions and just do as much as we can to get it right here in the near future to see what can happen."

QB Matt Schaub (ATL) will miss the rest of the season because of a Lisfranc injury in his foot.

*** Friday Update *** QB Matt Schaub (ATL) practiced fully on Friday but is questionable to play this weekend. "(Schaub) did everything that he does on Friday," coach Gary Kubiak said. "He's fine, and everything responded good yesterday."

*** Thursday Update *** QB Matt Schaub (ATL) partially participated in Thursday's practice, according to HoustonTexans.com. Schaub was hospitalized Tuesday because of a bursa sac issue in his right knee. "It was good to have him back," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "He took probably about half the reps today, feeling a lot better, and we’re heading in the right direction. Like I said, we expected him to get out last night, and he did. Everything that we thought would happen today happened." Barring any setbacks, Kubiak expects Schaub to be in the starting lineup against the 7-2 New York Jets on Sunday. "You never know, but everything today is pointing in the right direction." The origins of Schaub's ailment are still unknown. "I have absolutely no idea when it happened," Kubiak said. "Like I said, it was a bursa sac issue in his knee and he had some swelling and (doctors were) trying to get him under control and get him comfortable, and that’s what they did last night."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Schaub (ATL) did not practice on Wednesday. He was hospitalized Tuesday night with a bursa sac issue with his knee but he's expected to be back at practice Thursday.

"(He) is doing well, and I expect him to get out this afternoon," coach Gary Kubiak said, via HoustonTexans.com. "He should be here tomorrow, so everything should be OK."

Kubiak said that Schaub did not have surgery and that the team does not know how the ailment originated.

"I actually met with Matt yesterday morning for about an hour in the morning, just talking about things, and he was doing fine," Kubiak said. "He went home with his wife and had some problems and called us. We sent him to the doctor, and then that's where it went from there.

"We put him in the hospital to treat it basically and get some rest to get off of it. Thought he would be here this morning, made a decision this morning to let him stay there all day. Like I said, (he) should be getting out here at some point and be able to get back out here tomorrow."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Schaub (ATL) will not play in Week 11. The timetable for Schaub’s return is unclear according to HC Gary Kubiak. “He [Schaub] has definitely moved forward,” Kubiak said. “The question right now is whether or not we’re going to take him on the trip this week or not, whether they feel good about him flying, where they don’t think there will be any problems - swelling or anything. So, I’m hoping he goes with us, but he’s obviously made some strides. But I don’t think we’re really going to know a lot for another week or two.”

*** Friday Update *** QB Matt Schaub (ATL) has practiced fully this week and is set to return to the starting lineup. He says he feels fine and is healthy and ready to go.

QB Matt Schaub (ATL) will return to the starting lineup after resting over the bye week. "I'm ready to go," said Schaub. "There's no doubt about it. You can't be tentative. I'm planning to throw caution to the wind and play with the same vigor as before the injury."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Cam Newton (CAR) admitted that he has been playing hurt after saying he was fine following the team's embarrassing Week 10 loss Monday, Nov. 10. "Hurt is hurt," Newton said. "If you're asking me am I hurt right now? Yeah, I'm hurt. I haven't felt 100 percent in a long time. Is that going to hinder anything or that's been my excuse of why we're on a losing streak? No." Newton hasn't posted a quarterback rating higher than his career average of 85.4 since Oct. 12.

QB Cam Newton (CAR) Some reports had Newton nursing a right foot injury, which could be the result of compensating for the lingering soreness in his left ankle.

However, Newton didn't injure his foot or reinjure his ankles in Week 10 Monday, Nov. 10, according to head coach Ron Rivera. "I'm not sure where all that came from. But put it to rest," Rivera said. "He said it at his press conference after the game, he's fine." Newton didn't look right in the loss, and he struggled to accelerate to avoid sacks.

*** Friday Update *** QB Cam Newton (CAR) said he still has room for improvement, particularly with his decision-making. Newton noted he needs to be more efficient at "throwing hot, getting the ball out, throwing the ball away."

*** Thursday Update *** QB Brian St. Pierre (CAR) The Panthers have named Brian St. Pierre as their starting quarterback for Week 11, reports Darin Gantt, of the Charlotte Observer.

*** Friday Update *** QB Jay Cutler (CHI) is out for this weekend's game.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jay Cutler (CHI) is out for this weekend's game.

QB Jay Cutler (CHI) Bears head coach Marc Trestman said he should have taken Jay Cutler out of the game before the team's final offensive drive in the fourth quarter in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions. Cutler suffered a left ankle injury late in the second half that affected his play negatively. "I went through the tape closely this morning and watched Jay's performance, and I thought he did well into the fourth quarter," Trestman told WBBM-FM, the Bears' flagship radio station. "But at the end of the day, if we had to do it all over again, maybe it would be one series before the two-minute drill (that Cutler comes out)." Cutler finished 21-for-40 for 250 yards and one touchdown and one interception. Trestman won't say yet if Cutler will be healthy enough to start in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens. Cutler has been ruled out for Week 11, and he is considered week-to-week because of this high ankle sprain.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Jay Cutler (CHI) is out for this weekend's game.

*** Friday Update *** QB Jay Cutler (CHI) is out for this weekend's game.

QB Jay Cutler (CHI) Bears head coach Lovie Smith said Monday he is not sure if Jay Cutler will be able to play Week 11. Cutler has reportedly suffered "nearly a half-dozen" concussions in his career, and the team seems to be prepared to hold him out of their Week 11 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

*** Friday Update *** QB Brian Hoyer (CHI) is out for this week's game.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Brian Hoyer (CHI) did not practice on Thursday. Hoyer won't play in Week 11 because he suffered memory loss from a concussion he sustained in Week 10. He should return in Week 12.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Brian Hoyer (CHI) did not practice on Wednesday. Hoyer's concussion symptoms are improving, but his final status for Week 11 is to be determined. Hoyer is unlikely to start in Week 11 against the New York Jets, according to sources, which means T.J. Yates is expected to start.

QB Brian Hoyer (CHI) is in the NFL's concussion protocol and is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien is hopeful Hoyer will be able to play this week.

Also, O'Brien said his decision to bench Brian Hoyer after the Week 1 loss was a mistake. Hoyer became the starter again in Week 6 and Ryan Mallett was released after being late for a team flight. Hoyer has since thrown eight touchdowns and one interception and has a 97.3 passer rating.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) has been cleared for non-contact activities but isn't going to practice yet, the team announced Wednesday, Nov. 16. Griffin still needs to be cleared for contact, but he's making strides toward seeing the field again this year. Browns head coach Hue Jackson said Griffin will not practice this week.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) has not been cleared for contact in practice, so the 21-day window to activate him has not begun.

QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) is on pace to play again in 2016, according to executive vice president Sashi Brown. Griffin has a chance to return this year, but we're not so sure the Browns would put him in the starting lineup. The team is going to start Cody Kessler in Week 11 against the Steelers even though the rookie was pulled for Josh McCown in Week 10.

*** Friday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this week.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) practiced fully on Thursday.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) practiced fully on Wednesday.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) realizes he's been hit very often the last several weeks, and he wants to try to avoid unnecessary contact moving forward. "We don't want that to happen," Griffin said. "I know I don't want that to happen, the coaches don't want that to happen, the players around me don't want that to happen and we just have got to do a better job of making sure that doesn't happen." He said he has to "take it upon myself to get down earlier."

*** Thursday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) has been voted a team captain for the rest of the season. "You just know that everybody's looking at me to be the guy, to make everything work," Griffin said. "To me, that's not pressure. But I just echo it to everyone else that it's not just me. People will say it's me and I'll get all the blame and all the fame, but it's the guys around me that make me great."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) said he's fine in regards to his rib injury suffered in Week 9. He says he is hungrier coming off the bye week.

QB Robert Griffin III (CLE) practiced Monday, Nov. 12. He took a hard shot to his ribs in Week 9 and received a pain-killing injection at halftime, but X-rays showed no breaks.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Josh McCown (CLE) has been benched in favor of Daunte Culpepper.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Josh McCown (CLE) did not practice on Wednesday.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Josh McCown (CLE) could play some receiver in the upcoming weeks, but offensive coordinator Mike Martz said the team would be smart about it and not send him on crossing patterns over the middle and will try to keep him out of harm's way if at all possible. That means that McCown, who has been catching passes with the receivers for several weeks, would likely be a fourth receiver and run deep routes in obvious passing situations. McCown has good speed, great leaping ability and good hands. Does anyone still have Mike Williams on their fantasy roster?

*** Saturday Update *** QB Vince Young (CLE) will start in Week 11 in place of Michael Vick (ribs). Not a surprise here. Vick's rib injury has kept him from practicing all week, so his playing status next week is also uncertain. Young is a seasoned starter, but has looked rough in limited snaps with the Eagles this year.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Vince Young (CLE) The general feeling inside the Eagles' locker room is that Vince Young would likely start in Week 11 if Michael Vick (ribs) can't play.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Vince Young (CLE) will be the starter this week and is looking good. "Regardless of who he’s practicing with it’s going to help." said coach Jeff Fisher. "(Young) is certainly off to a great start this week, with the reps, he got all the reps today like we anticipated and it looks like the injury is behind him and he’s good to go."

QB Brooks Bollinger (DAL) will remain the team’s starting QB for at least another week.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Dak Prescott (DAL) is now the unquestioned starter for the Cowboys after Tony Romo's classy press conference, in which Romo yielded any claim to the job. Prescott won't have a short leash at quarterback. "(We) certainly don't want any of our players looking over their shoulders when they play," head coach Jason Garrett said.

QB Dak Prescott (DAL) will start in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens, owner and general manager Jerry Jones confirmed Sunday, Nov. 13.

*** Friday Update *** QB Tony Romo (DAL) practiced fully on Friday but is questionable to play this week.

He also added that there is a greater risk in him breaking his collarbone again, and he won't know how it will respond until he's hit.

QB Tony Romo (DAL) is expected to be cleared from the short-term Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 18, and play in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins, according to a source.

Garrett said Romo will not do too much during practices Wednesday and Thursday this week.

QB Tony Romo (DAL) made it through the Week 10 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars without any setbacks. "Just sore," Romo said Sunday, Nov. 9. "Anybody that's had any broken bones, it's uncomfortable at times and things like that. But if you play football, you go play."

QB Tony Romo (DAL) Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett praised Tony Romo for his ability to escape pressure and complete a 25-yard pass to Miles Austin in the second half of the team's Week 10 game. "I think something that is so important is to be able to allow him to have that freedom to make those Romo-type plays, and that certainly was a great example of that," Garrett said. "He's got great vision. He's got great feel for people around him. He always keeps his eyes up. He seems to be able to make a lot of those plays at critical moments."

QB Tony Romo (DAL) said he would definitely play against Washington on Sunday night at FedEx Field, but it sounded like he'd be affected by his partially healed broken right pinky finger. The break is just below the top knuckle on his right little finger, and he'll play with a splint on it. "It won't be all the way healed," Romo said. "It's still probably a good two or three weeks away from that. I don't know where it's exactly going to be, healing-wise, in Washington, but my timing will be fine." Romo added that the finger "has gotten healthy enough so I could take a hit on it."

*** Friday Update *** QB Tony Romo (DAL) is currently suffering from a swollen right middle finger. He and the team are not certain when the injury occurred, though it is not considered to be serious and is not expected to miss any time as a result.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Mark Sanchez (DAL) ran the offense at a faster pace last year in head coach Chip Kelly's system, and the expectation is that the tempo of the offense will pick up if Sanchez has to start in place of Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "Mark's probably a little bit more conscious of the tempo," offensive tackle Lane Johnson said. "He may go at a little bit faster pace than what Sam is, so other than that, probably just the tempo may be a little bit faster." Kelly and offensive coordinator have said that the offense won't change much this week if Sanchez has to start.

QB Mark Sanchez (DAL) CB Antonio Cromartie, like head coach Rex Ryan, is defending Mark Sanchez as the starting quarterback, and he has no interest in Tim Tebow being promoted. When asked what he would say to the fans calling for Tebow, Cromartie replied, "They can kiss my butt ... Mark is our quarterback. At the end of the day, we could give a damn what anybody on the outside has to say. Mark is our quarterback and he's going to continue to be our quarterback. There's not going to be no division, talking about who needs to be our quarterback. Mark is our quarterback and he's our only quarterback."

*** Friday Update *** QB Mark Sanchez (DAL) Jets head coach Rex Ryan gave his vote of confidence to Mark Sanchez despite his struggles in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.

QB Mark Sanchez (DAL) expects to start against the Houston Texans in Week 11, according to ESPNNewYork.com's Mike Mazzeo. "After the trainers looked at it and determined it wasn't a serious ligament injury or a knee injury, they were going to leave it up to me as far as pain tolerance (was concerned)," Sanchez said. "And once they left it up to me, I knew I was going to go back in."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Austin Davis (DEN) has been benched, and Shaun Hill will start in Week 11 Sunday, Nov. 16.

QB Austin Davis (DEN) will continue to be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

QB Trevor Siemian (DEN) would not be able to play if the Broncos played Monday, Nov. 14, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Siemian received an injection in his left shoulder. Kubiak said the rest during the Week 11 bye will "do him good."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matthew Stafford (DET) did not practice on Wednesday. Stafford continues to rehab his separated right shoulder, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Head coach Jim Schwartz said on his weekly radio show Monday, Nov. 15, that the team will not rush Stafford: "He's not going to go back on the field until he's, No. 1, able to throw without restriction and make all the throws, and, No. 2, until he's able to take a hit on that shoulder."

QB Matthew Stafford (DET) apparently was injured in the second quarter of the team's Week 9 game and continued to play effectively until there was just over six minutes left in the game, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Stafford will not require shoulder surgery, according to Chris McCosky, of The Detroit News. "Dr. Andrews informed the team today that his evaluation of Matthew's injury is consistent with the evaluation and diagnosis of the Lions' medical staff," the team said in a statement. "Matthew will continue the rehabilitation process that he began last week under the supervision of the team's medical staff." Stafford flew to Birmingham, Ala., Monday, Nov. 15, to consult with Dr. Andrews.

Schwartz has praised Stafford for being able to play through the injury. Schwartz added, "We didn't know how he would deal with an injury and how he would play through it. He's proved that through the last couple weeks."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB John Beck (FA) will start for the team this weekend as they face the Eagles.

QB John Beck (FA) HC Cam Cameron might be ready to insert rookie John Beck in as the starter. For the first time since midway through the exhibition season Cameron expressed uncertainty about which quarterback he'll start for Sunday's game at Philadelphia. Cameron addressed his two quarterbacks on Monday and told each he had a decision to make - stick with Lemon for the veteran's fifth start of the season or allow rookie John Beck to start in his NFL debut. "We're not that far removed from the game last night," Cameron said. "Our staff will go back through the tape again [Monday night] and get a chance to reflect on it and we'll know by Wednesday what direction we're going."

*** Friday Update *** QB Aaron Brooks (FA) practiced on Friday and is expected to play this weekend. HC Art Shell declined to name a starter in a brief interview after practice, and he expects to wait until Sunday to make an announcement. However, Brooks took the majority of first-team snaps at practice Friday, and all indications point to him starting Sunday's road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. According to a person who was at practice, Brooks clearly took more snaps with the starters than second-year quarterback Andrew Walter, and one teammate said afterward he thinks Brooks will start. "It is unusual," Shell said about holding off on naming a starter until so late in the week. "You've got a guy who's ready to play, showing that he's ready to play, he was the guy at the beginning of the year, and so we've got two guys I can turn to." Earlier this week, Chiefs HC Herm Edwards said his team was preparing as if Brooks was going to start against them.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Aaron Brooks (FA) has been cleared by doctors to play after injuring a chest muscle in Week 1. He shared first team snaps with Andrew Walter yesterday at practice, but HC Art Shell has not named a starter for Week 10. Shell may wait until Sunday to make the announcement.

QB Aaron Brooks (FA) Art Shell took issue with quarterback Andrew Walter's criticisms of the struggling offense and appears ready to make a switch back to Aaron Brooks. Walter took shots at coordinator Tom Walsh's offense after Sunday's 17-13 loss to Denver, saying there is not enough "depth" in the playbook, the offense was too predictable, and that the team needed to utilize more quick-developing plays than five- and seven-step drops. That didn't sit well with Shell, who has fiercely defended Walsh all season long from criticisms that he is out of touch after being away from the NFL for more than a decade. "You have to be accountable for what you do," Shell said Monday. "To start making statements about what's in and what's not in, then you need to take a hard look at what's there. Obviously, I don't want to get into a contest with a young man but for him to come out and say those things, (that's) totally off-base as far as I'm concerned." Shell said Walter's comments wouldn't play into the decision about who would start at quarterback Sunday at Kansas City, but he appears ready to give the job back to Brooks. "I'm going to take a hard look at it and see where we are with him (Brooks)," Shell said. "He's been throwing the last couple of weeks. I thought last week he threw the ball a whole lot better. I think he's very close. We'll see how he goes."

For his part, Brooks said that he is "available" to start against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday. "I expect coach (Art Shell) to make the right decision," Brooks said Monday. "I've informed him where I'm at. It will probably be until the middle of the week until they make that decision." Brooks, who was just 6-for-14 for 68 yards before getting hurt, said the problems on the NFL's worst offense are more about execution than play calling. Brooks has made 84 starts in his career and said he believed he gives the team a better chance to win than the inexperienced Walter does. "I think we have a greater chance," Brooks said. "I possess some skills that with my experience gives us a greater chance."

QB Marc Bulger (FA) HC Jim Haslett stated there would be no change at QB this week despite the poor performance of Marc Bulger against the NY Jets last Sunday. "Marc will start," Haslett said. "There was no discussion with the staff [about a change]."

QB Jason Campbell (FA) Jay Cutler's status for Week 11 is unknown at this point due to a concussion; however, the team has confidence in backup QB Jason Campbell to lead the team moving forward. "Jason Campbell is more than capable,' WR Brandon Marshall said. '(Cutler is) our leader, he's the heart and soul of the offense. We want him to have a speedy recovery. There was no heads down when Jay was down. There was no complaining. We have a starting quarterback (Campbell) as a backup. We are fortunate to have him and there will be not drop off in our offense."

QB Jason Campbell (FA) Raiders head coach Tom Cable confirmed Jason Campbell will start in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, reports ANG Newspaper's Jerry McDonald. Cable said Campbell has earned it after winning four of his five starts.

*** Friday Update *** QB Jason Campbell (FA) will make his first NFL start this weekend, but he’ll likely be without two of the team's top offensive playmakers. RB Clinton Portis has been placed on the injured reserve list, and WR Santana Moss has been downgraded to doubtful with a bad hamstring. Moss will still be a game-time decision, but he is not expected to play. "We have other players who can step up and help him," HC Joe Gibbs said. "We've given him a tough situation to be in, but I know he's excited."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jason Campbell (FA) will make the first start of his NFL career on Sunday when the Redskins face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Campbell believes that he'll be alright with the help of his veteran teammates. "It's been a long time since I've done that," Campbell said. "But that's all part of it, getting back into a rhythm and getting used to playing a full game again. But I have great veterans around me. I have a veteran receiver group, a veteran offensive line and Ladell has played a long time. I'm surrounded by a great cast."

QB Jason Campbell (FA) HC Joe Gibbs said during his Monday press conference that he will be making a switch at quarterback. Jason Campbell will start in place of Mark Brunell. "We're going to give Jason his opportunity and see if we can be more productive and see if we can get some more answers," Gibbs said.

*** Thursday Update *** QB David Carr (FA) practiced Thursday and is could play this weekend. The team will have to make a decision between Carr and Vinny Testaverde for this weekend.

*** Thursday Update *** QB David Carr (FA) practiced on Thursday. He was upgraded to probable on the injury report and is expected to play this weekend.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB David Carr (FA) did not practice fully on Wednesday but is still expected to play this weekend.

QB David Carr (FA) underwent an MRI on his bruised shoulder, and the results were negative. "All indications are that David will be fine and ready to go," HC Gary Kubiak said. "David said he was feeling pretty good when he left here today." If Carr is unable to play in Week 11, quarterback Sage Rosenfels would start in his place.

QB Brodie Croyle (FA) will start for the team in Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. "You need a spark," HC Herm Edwards said. "We've been in some contests now where we haven't had the ability to score points. That's part of your job as a quarterback, to put points on the board and move the football team. We've moved at times but we've also been very inconsistent." "We understand what we're walking into when we're playing a young quarterback. At times it might look real good and at times, you might say, 'Why did he do that?' But you know what? So be it. We'll live with that."

*** Saturday Update *** QB Daunte Culpepper (FA) now admits that he returned to action too soon from three torn ligaments. "The speed of the game was different for me and my knee just wasn't ready for that," Culpepper said. "I can't blame the Dolphins and I can't blame myself. I think both sides were optimistic about it and obviously I was very optimistic about it. If I could do it over, I probably would have waited." When Culpepper had his ligaments repaired, Dr. James Andrews, the surgeon who performed the procedure, laid out a recovery time of far longer than Culpepper ended up taking. "The day before Dr. Andrews did the surgery he [said], ‘Hey, it's probably going to be two years before you're able to get back on the field and play," Culpepper said. "I accepted that. Long story short, I was back on the field in about eight months after the surgery. I think that was kind of crazy in the sense that I was told two years, but I was feeling good and my leg recovered very well, faster than anybody thought." Yet his recovery wasn't total. "I wasn't really myself," Culpepper admitted. "I really didn't understand what [Andrews] was saying. He really meant I wouldn't be myself for two years. With that being said, if I could go back and do it all over I probably would have took a little bit more time before I got back on the field. But, hey, things happen and you have to move forward."

And the Lions might represent his best shot since then to recapture his Pro Bowl form. After a frustrating 2007 with Oakland, Culpepper contemplated retirement after no team picked him up for this year, going as far as to announce his intention to retire in September. But he didn't file the papers, and when Detroit came calling with a two-year contract and a chance to start after injuries sidelined Jon Kitna and Dan Orlovsky, Culpepper jumped at it - in part because Lions head coach Rod Marinelli saw the 10-year veteran as more than a mere stopgap. "If you have a chance to get a franchise quarterback -- which he is and has been and he is only 31 years old - I think you are crazy not to," Marinelli said.

Culpepper will start for the team again Sunday at Carolina. OC Jim Colletto hesitated to say whether Drew Stanton will play, but Colletto said Stanton probably will not be put into goal-line situations now that Culpepper has had more practice time.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Daunte Culpepper (FA) OC Jim Colletto said Friday that starting QB Daunte Culpepper would likely handle all the goal-line situations in Week 11. Last week, the team brought Drew Stanton into the game for that package of plays. Colletto said Stanton could still see some playing time this week. "We'll see how the game plays out," Colletto said. "This if the first time Daunte's played on the road and the there could be silent count problems and we'll see how he adjusts to that. We'll let the game dictate that. We did the goal-line thing a week ago for a specific reason and we probably won't do that this time."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Daunte Culpepper (FA) will start at quarterback in Week 11 at Carolina. Culpepper said he and Drew Stanton are splitting reps about the same way they did last week, after Culpepper signed with the Lions.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Daunte Culpepper (FA) has been named the starter against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. "When you go to a place that you played before obviously emotion is going to be a part of it," Culpepper said Wednesday. "But the main thing is I have to try to keep an even keel even though I know it's going to be crazy. But I'm looking forward to it."

*** Friday Update *** QB Daunte Culpepper (FA) said Thursday the healing of his surgically repaired right knee is not going as smoothly as he had hoped and admitted that he may not play again until 2007. Culpepper said he wants to play again this season but that the risk could outweigh the reward. He also hinted at the possibility of having more surgery if the pain doesn't subside. "I don't know if I have to have more surgery. I doubt that as of right now," Culpepper said. "I think it's more strengthening my quad." Culpepper said being in street clothes Sunday against the Vikings will be difficult.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Daunte Culpepper (FA) says he still feels sharp pain in his reconstructed right knee a year after surgery, and isn't sure whether he'll play again this season. He will sit out Sunday's game against his former team, the Minnesota Vikings. It's the sixth consecutive game he'll miss after struggling through the first four. "This is one I wish I could have been in," Culpepper said Thursday. "Unfortunately my knee isn't as good as my spirit and my soul want to be." Speaking to reporters for the first time in more than a month, Culpepper said his knee is improving. But he said it's possible he'll sit out the rest of the year. "I'd be disappointed, but at the same time I won't be, because I know I've got to keep my eye on the big picture," he said. "It's really not about short-term, it's about long-term." Culpepper has been practicing on a limited basis and said the knee still bothers him. "I'm getting a sharp pain when I'm trying to push off," he said. "If I can get past that point, I think I can be very explosive." Wednesday was the one-year anniversary of his surgery.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Daunte Culpepper (FA) got some practice in on Wednesday. Culpepper, in the 20-minute session open to the media, wore a red jersey and a brace on his right knee and took snaps behind both Joey Harrington and Cleo Lemon. Culpepper threw a nice ball but appeared to still have a slight limp in his right knee -- something HC Nick Saban wanted to see corrected before he would let Culpepper back into the lineup. Obviously, he would love to face his old team, the Minnesota Vikings, on Sunday, but it will not happen. Culpepper is out.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Brett Favre (FA) partially participated in Wednesday's practice. Favre said his shoulder is feeling OK and that he is not overly concerned about the injury, reports Chip Scoggins, of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Favre said he has not gotten on MRI on the shoulder.

QB Brett Favre (FA) said on Sunday that he would have his shoulder looked at by team doctors after he felt a sharp pain in his shoulder Saturday, Nov. 13, reports ESPN's Ed Werder. Favre said he did not feel any pain on his shoulder during Week 10 but believes it affected some of his passes. He believes the shoulder pain could be related to a surgery he had to repair a partially torn biceps after the 2008 season. Vikings head coach Brad Childress said he expects Favre to practice Thursday, Nov. 18, and play in Week 11, according to Tom Pelissero, of 1500ESPN.com. However, on Monday, Favre was not expected to need an MRI on the shoulder, reported ESPN.com. Favre had expected to need an MRI on his right shoulder, but he told ESPN's Ed Werder Monday, Nov. 15, that his shoulder was "no big deal - right now" and agreed with team officials that an MRI was not necessary.

Also, Favre said he believes in the team's playoff chances despite their 3-6 record, according to ESPN.com. "Let's not worry about that," Favre said when asked if he would quit playing this season if the Vikings were mathematically eliminated. "Don't push it ... I think there's still a little hope left. I can't speak for the rest of the team, but I do know the consensus seemed to be afterward that there is life still left."

*** Friday Update *** QB Brett Favre (FA) has yet another injury in his long list of physical setbacks that have yet to keep him from missing a game. HC Mike McCarthy revealed after practice Friday that Favre suffered a groin injury in practice a day earlier. McCarthy said Favre was limited in practice Friday and took only some of the reps, though the reduced workload is typical for Favre in the final practice of a week. "He's sore today. His groin really bothered him," McCarthy said. Favre was included on the team's extensive injury report earlier this week because of sore ankles, which kept him out of most of practice Wednesday. Favre is considered probable to play Sunday against New England at Lambeau Field. His streak of 250 straight starts, including playoff appearances, doesn't appear to be in jeopardy. McCarthy said there are no concerns about Favre's ability to move in the game. "I talked to him at length today. He doesn't think (the groin injury is) a big deal," McCarthy said. Asked how the 37-year-old Favre was hurt Thursday, McCarthy said, "Just practice. Old age. Whatever."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Brett Favre (FA) did not participate in the team portion of Wednesday’s practice but is expected to play this weekend according to HC Mike McCarthy. Favre “practiced and went all the way up until the blitz drill,” said McCarthy. “He has an ankle that's really bothering him, so we put him in the rehab group after the group period (of practice). He actually worked everything that we had in today's plan, except he didn't go through the team drills. I anticipate him going tomorrow.”

QB Brett Favre (FA) HC Mike McCarthy wants Favre to play again next season and plans to persuade him to return, according to Fox Sports reporter Jay Glazer. "Everybody talks about him retiring," Glazer said, referring to Favre. "But Saturday night, his head coach, Mike McCarthy, told me, 'I am going to try to convince Brett to come back one more year.'"

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jay Fiedler (FA) will not play in week 11.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Gus Frerotte (FA) will be a game time decision but the word on Saturday is that it could be Sage Rosenfels. We'll have official word for you well before game time Sunday Morning with our Sunday Update page.

*** Friday Update *** QB Gus Frerotte (FA) practiced some but was limited on Friday. He will be a game-time decision for week 11, but it looks like he’ll be able to go. "We feel like he probably could play in the game, based on what he did today," Saban said. However, Saban declined to say which quarterback will start, hoping to create some doubt for the Cleveland Browns. "If you had a gun, put it to my head and you say, 'I'm going to shoot you if you don't tell me,' I probably would tell you," Saban said. "But absent the gun, I just said what I am going to say, because if I tell you I tell everybody." Sage Rosenfels will start if Frerotte can not go.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Gus Frerotte (FA) missed practice with the team but was able to throw some. "Gus is making good improvement," coach Nick Saban said. "He is able to grip the ball and toss it some today. He will take a few snaps (Friday) and see where he is at." Sage Rosenfels worked with the first team.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Gus Frerotte (FA) may play in Sunday's game at Cleveland after all. While backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels took most of the reps during Wednesday's practice, Frerotte sounded optimistic in talking about his chances of playing. "It's a lot better," said Frerotte, who sprained his right index finger against New England. "I played long enough in this league to know that missing one day is not a big deal. Today is not Sunday. I'm not making it worse."

QB Gus Frerotte (FA) has some swelling in the index finger on his throwing hand. The injury will be monitored closely this week.

QB Bruce Gradkowski (FA) will be the No. 2 quarterback in the team's Week 11 game, according to Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Bruce Gradkowski (FA) Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers, reports Raiders players are in support of Bruce Gradkowski and feel he gives the team the best chance to win at this point. "Bruce gives us the best chance to win right now," TE Zach Miller said. "We've got to be out there and play better football than we have the last few games here." RB Justin Fargas added that Gradkowski plays with passion. "You want to make a play for your quarterback but when he shows that type of passion for the game, obviously guys are going to feed off it and try to give him that same effort," Fargas said.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Bruce Gradkowski (FA) has been named the starting QB for this week.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Trent Green (FA) been cleared to return to practice, according to HC Herman Edwards. Edwards informed FOX Sports exclusively that he will name Green his starter for Sunday's game versus the Raiders. "We're going to go with Trent as our starter," Edwards said this morning after informing both Green and QB Damon Huard of his intentions. "This has been his football team for a long time. I think his return will give us a shot of adrenaline. But Trent alone won't allow us to win games." For weeks Edwards has quietly told those close to him that the moment Green got clearance to return he would regain his starting slot.

QB Trent Green (FA) Green has been cleared to practice Wednesday. "They gave me full clearance," Green said in his only interview after being cleared late Tuesday. "I haven't spoken to coach yet about it so I don't know what my role will be but I'm ready to do whatever they need."

Green said he was confident he'd had enough time to heal.

"I have no concerns at all, none," he said. "I've felt pretty good the last few weeks. The organization really handled it great. They let me take my time and they covered all the bases. Nobody ever tried to rush me back in. They all made sure I was right before allowing me to do too much."

Asked whether Green would play Sunday against the Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium if doctors give him permission, Edwards said, "We'll see. We'll see where he's at. I can't answer that until I know the extent of what he's going to participate in and how he's feeling in practice. He hasn't done anything live yet, so we'll just kind of see." Green hasn't played in two months and resumed practice only on a limited basis in the last few weeks. Edwards wasn't sure what the Chiefs could expect from Green. "You can't answer it," he said. "You can answer it in practice as to how he looks in practice. But until he actually goes in a game, no one's going to know. You anticipate whenever he has a chance to play again, you anticipate for him to play well. But he's going to be a little rusty. You know that."

QB Brian Griese (FA) The Bears have not announced who will be their starting QB for week 11. After Brian Griese suffered a sprained shoulder Sunday, Rex Grossman entered the game and led the team to a comeback win. When asked about Griese's status for Sunday's game, HC Lovie Smith answered, "Well, first he needs to be cleared medically, and from there, if he's cleared medically, he should be ready to go."

QB Joey Harrington (FA) HC Bobby Petrino will wait until later this week to announce his starting quarterback. He will have to choose between Joey Harrington and Byron Leftwich, who could get medical clearance to play this week. "We've kind of got to wait and see the health of Byron," Petrino said. "There's a lot of things before you consider."

*** Friday Update *** QB Joey Harrington (FA) will likely start for the team this weekend in place of the still-injured Jeff Garcia, but HC Steve Mariucci is not ready to make an official announcement. "Jeff was a little bit better but he's not all the way back," said Mariucci, who refused to name an official starter. "Not today. I just don't want to yet." Harrington has taken the majority of snaps in practice this week and says he will continue to prepare like he's starting. "That's the general feeling. When you take most of the snaps, that's usually the way it's leaning," Harrington said. "Of course, I'd like to (start) but there's no indication so we'll just roll with it."

*** Thursday Update *** QB Joey Harrington (FA) looks like he'll start again this week as Jeff Garcia isn't healthy enough to play. Coach Steve Mariucci will likely hold off as long as possible in naming a starter but it's look like Harrington as of Thursday night.

QB Joey Harrington (FA) could remain the Lions' starting quarterback by default. Jeff Garcia has not lost his status as the starting quarterback and will start Sunday's game at Dallas if his injured left leg is healthy enough, HC Steve Mariucci said. Garcia did not sound hopeful Monday about being healthy enough to play this Sunday.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Matt Hasselbeck has thrown the ball well during practice and is not being affected by the cast he is wearing on his injured left wrist, reports Dave Boling, of The Tacoma News Tribune. Carroll believes a lighter workload during practice has left Hasselbeck's arm fresh.

*** Friday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this weekend.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) practiced fully on Thursday.

Hasselbeck is expected to play in Week 11 with a fractured left wrist, but he still has some limitations, according to CBSSports.com. J.P. Losman had to tie Hasselbeck's shoes for him as the team got ready for practice Wednesday, Nov. 17. The team will also find ways to limit Hasselbeck in practice this week to minimize the chances of him aggravating his injury. "We're going to do some things to keep him from banging it," head coach Pete Carroll said.

Hasselbeck was more optimistic. "I can do everything, there's no limitation," Hasselbeck said Thursday afternoon. "I didn't take active snaps yesterday, just to let the swelling go down or whatever, but I'm really not in that much pain at all. I actually feel like I dodged a bullet. I'm not concerned at all.

"The adrenaline of being in a game helps even more."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) practiced fully on Wednesday.

QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Matt Hasselbeck will be able to play in Week 11 despite breaking a bone in his left wrist during Week 10, reports MyNorthwest.com.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play in Week 11.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) is no longer on the Seahawks' Week 11 practice report.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) practiced fully on Wednesday. Hasselbeck said he was told by a doctor that he was not likely to play again this season because of the problem with his leg. It wasn't a mandate or a recommendation, Hasselbeck said, just an opinion from Robert Watkins in Los Angeles. That was Watkins' initial opinion after looking at Hasselbeck's test results and evaluating him. "He said, 'Listen, you probably won't come back this year. You won't need surgery, but you probably won't play,'" Hasselbeck said. Watkins indicated it would take a couple of months to recover, but he also told Hasselbeck there was a chance he would be back. "I can't imagine anything they would say negative or I would say negative," Hasselbeck said. "From everything I can tell right now, everything is really good and I hope to play Sunday."

QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) HC Mike Holmgren said Monday that Matt Hasselbeck would start this coming Sunday when the team faces the Arizona Cardinals. Hasselbeck will return to practice with the first team offense on Wednesday.

*** Friday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) practiced on Friday but will be a game-time decision. With regards to Hasselbeck and RB Shaun Alexander, HC Mike Holmgren will not say for sure how much playing time, if any at all, the players will get. To keep the 49ers guessing the Seahawks have listed them as game time decisions.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) practiced again Thursday and seemed to gain some momentum as the practice progressed. The plan seems to remain that if all goes well, he would be in uniform Sunday and available as a backup QB but Seneca Wallace would start again.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) worked with the scout team Wednesday morning and will continue to do so until it is clear he is ready to retake the starting role. Hasselbeck was limping on his sprained right knee by the end of the 25 San Francisco plays he ran with the scout team. He was sharp early on in practice. By the end, his deep passes were underthrown. His limp gradually became more prominent when carrying out fakes after handoffs. He also appeared to avoid planting on the leg while throwing. Hasselbeck semi-jokingly attributed the limp to an extremely tight taping of the knee under his black brace. "It's more of a strut than a limp," he said. "I thought today went very well. I feel like I'm on schedule. And I'm extremely encouraged." Hasselbeck said last weekend that doctors originally told him he'd miss four to six weeks, "and the 28th day is Sunday." Hasselbeck added, "The big question would be just getting tackled and getting bent up in the bottom of a pile like a pretzel. I don't know how you plan for that. There's only one way to find out on that for real." HC Mike Holmgren added that because Hasselbeck can drop straight back and hand off, he could be the No. 2 quarterback behind fill-in starter Seneca Wallace on Sunday. "There is a chance he'll be active, because he can do most of the stuff," Holmgren said.

QB Matt Hasselbeck (FA) has a chance to play in Sunday's game but probably won't practice fully until Friday. That was as close as HC Mike Holmgren could come to offering any certainty in the recovery of his quarterback. Hasselbeck practiced briefly last Friday and was at team headquarters on Monday for a workout. He is recovering from a sprained knee ligament, and Holmgren said that Hasselbeck's mobility will be the key in determining the time line for his return.

*** Friday Update *** QB Kelly Holcomb (FA) did not practice on Friday and will not start this weekend. It looks like he will be the team’s third string emergency QB.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Kelly Holcomb (FA) did not practice on Thursday. The team will likely make a call on their starting QB Friday or Saturday. Although remember Mike Mularkey waited until almost kickoff to announce Holcomb as the starter the first week he replaced J.P. Losman.

*** Friday Update *** QB Tarvaris Jackson (FA) partially participated in Friday's practice but is still expected to play this weekend.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Tarvaris Jackson (FA) continues to play through pain, as he battles soreness in his strained pectoral muscle. "Unfortunately he just can't practice very much," head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Nov. 16. "And when he does, he's holding back." Jackson said he is not worried about the possibility of needing surgery on his pectoral injury during the offseason and is only worried about helping the offense this season.

QB Tarvaris Jackson (FA) will be the starter this week after QB Brooks Bollinger struggled heavily during yesterday's 34-0 loss at Green Bay. "I do feel like coming out of training camp (Jackson) was the best quarterback, so I would say you would probably end up being back with Tarvaris" when Minnesota hosts Oakland this week," HC Brad Childress said. "I kind of erred on the side of caution with Tarvaris. It wasn't that he couldn't practice last week, but we started Brooks and it's still my commitment to want to continue to develop (Jackson)."

QB Jon Kitna (FA) does not have to worry about job security. "I'll make this statement right off the bat: Jon Kitna is our quarterback," HC Rod Marinelli said at his news conference Monday.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Cleo Lemon (FA) has been benched in favor of rookie John Beck.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Jake Locker (FA) The Titans are currently unsure if they will proceed with Jake Locker as their franchise quarterback, given his checkered injury history.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Jake Locker (FA) is going to need surgery for his Lisfranc injury, according to a source. The surgery has not yet taken place.

QB Jake Locker (FA) Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Jake Locker will miss the rest of the season because of the Lisfranc injury he suffered Week 10. The Titans must decide by May 3, 2014, whether they want to pick up Locker's 2015 option. Under the collective bargaining agreement, teams exercising a fifth-year option for a top-10 draft pick must pay them a salary equal to the transition tag. The transition tag for quarterbacks this year is $13.068 million. Locker will be under contract next year for $2.091 million. "I think that's stuff we'll talk about when the season is over and you have to make decisions on the next season. ... That's a nice February discussion," head coach Mike Munchak said. "He is a fighter, and if anyone can come back from another injury, it is going to be him. We are just concentrating on these next seven weeks."

QB Jake Locker (FA) Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Monday, Nov. 12, that Jake Locker made it through the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins with no issues with his shoulder.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Tommy Maddox (FA) will start for the team this weekend against the Ravens. "Tommy will start and we'll see where we go from there," Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher said. "Ben's getting a little bit better each day and we'll see where he is tomorrow (Friday)."

*** Friday Update *** QB Peyton Manning (FA) is out for this week's game. Manning (foot) hasn't attended any practices or meetings this week and also hasn't had a single conversation with Brock Osweiler about the game plan against the Chicago Bears in Week 11. There is currently no timetable on a return for Manning. Head coach Gary Kubiak prefers that Manning put all of his focus on his treatment and getting healthy. Manning did not even make the trip with the team to Chicago.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Peyton Manning (FA) did not practice on Thursday.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Peyton Manning (FA) did not practice on Wednesday.

QB Peyton Manning (FA) will not play this weekend as he recovers from a partially torn planta fascia. Furthermore, Manning will not practice this week as he receives treatment. He will be re-evaluated in one week. However, this injury might last for some time. A partially torn plantar fascia is more painful than a fully torn one, and the recovery time is usually long. We could see Manning miss six weeks or more due to this foot injury, and that would make Brock Osweiler the starter for most of the rest of the regular season.

Manning had been fighting plantar fasciitis for weeks but is believed to have aggravated it against the Indianapolis Colts Nov. 8, resulting in a partial tear of his plantar fascia, according to sources. Partial tears of the plantar fascia are almost always more painful than a complete tear. Head coach Gary Kubiak did say that Manning remains the starting quarterback "if (Manning's) healthy and ready to go." Manning said he thought he felt good enough to play before the game. "Maybe looking back that was the wrong -- I had the wrong indication by me. And by going out there trying to help the team, I ended up hurting the team. I'm disappointed about that," Manning said. Manning was the first quarterback to complete five passes or fewer in a game and throw four interceptions or more in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs since Warren Moon did it in 1986.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Peyton Manning (FA) Broncos interim head coach Jack Del Rio said Friday, Nov. 15, that Peyton Manning (ankle) is "definite" for the Week 11 showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. "They don't have a definite category on there, or I would check it off," Del Rio said. "He's ready to go, and as a team we're ready to go." No worries here for Manning or his fantasy owners. Start him as you normally would in Week 11.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Peyton Manning (FA) partially participated in Thursday's practice.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Peyton Manning (FA) Broncos interim head coach Jack Del Rio said Peyton Manning is expected to practice later this week and play in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs despite missing practice Wednesday, Nov. 13 (although Del Rio said that Manning did participate in the team's walk-through). "I'm pretty sore," Manning said after the win over San Diego. "They got me twice in that lower area. I felt better coming into the game after the bye week, but I'm pretty sore."

QB Peyton Manning (FA) is expected to play in the team's Week 11 showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs after his MRI exam Monday, Nov. 11, showed no new damage to his injured right ankle. Manning was not in a walking boot Monday, according to a player source. The Denver Post's Mike Klis was told by a source that Manning "absolutely will play Sunday against the Chiefs."

*** Thursday Update *** QB Peyton Manning (FA) Giants QB Eli Manning said his brother, Peyton Manning, could potentially return this season. "Maybe he could be back this year. I don't know if that's the smart thing under the circumstances, but I expect him to be back next year," Manning said. "He's always been a fast healer. He wants to be out there. He's being aggressive in his rehab and looking to get back on the field as soon as possible. He looks into every possibility, every opportunity, to get back as soon as possible."

QB Peyton Manning (FA) Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said Monday, Nov. 14, that Peyton Manning is fine with the team drafting a franchise quarterback for the future. "The bottom line is that if the right person is there, and it has to be the right person, then now is the time to make that choice," Polian said. "Peyton and I have spoken about that, and he's OK with that."

QB Johnny Manziel (FA) has been named the starter for the rest of the season.

Also, Manziel has not been punished following an investigation regarding a domestic incident. Authorities said there was an insufficient basis on which to take disciplinary action.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Mike McMahon (FA) will start this week with Donovan McNabb injured. "It's a little more pressure, it's the real thing," McMahon said of making his eighth career start. "You have to be ready. It's the situation I've been waiting for. I'm going to do whatever it takes to win. I haven't started in a while, but it's not about starting. It's about going out and being productive with the offense."

QB Mike McMahon (FA) would likely get the start if Donovan McNabb can't go Sunday. He's an athletic player that scrambles and has a strong arm.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) practiced fully on Wednesday.

QB Donovan McNabb (FA) The Redskins have agreed to a five-year contract extension with Donovan McNabb worth $78 million with $40 million in guaranteed money, reports ESPN's Michael Smith. However, one of the most significant points in the extension is a payment due this offseason, when the team must decide whether or not to pay McNabb a $10 million option bonus, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. If they do, it would trigger the rest of the contract and make the Redskins liable for McNabb's $2.5 million base salary in 2011. Essentially, the Redskins paid McNabb $3.75 million in 2010 for the right to pay him $12.5 million in 2011 and control his rights. If the Redskins cut him after this season or trade him, they are only on the hook for the $3.75 million. The contract's real guarantee is $3.5 million; however, if McNabb suffered a catastrophic injury this season and never played again, he would receive $25 million more.

In related news, Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, not head coach Mike Shanahan, was the one responsible for benching McNabb in Week 9, according to multiple sources, reports Michael Wilbon, of The Washington Post. Kyle, not Mike, is the coach who has issues with McNabb.

And finally, because there seems to never be a shortage of people bagging on McNabb, Terrell Owens was critical of the contract extension McNabb received, according to Dave Miller, of NationalFootballPost.com. "How do u justify a 78 million dollar contract w/this type of performance?" Owens said via his Twitter account during the Redskins' Week 10 game.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) was excused from Wednesday's practice.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) should have surgery now according to Dr. William Meyers who examined the McNabb’s sports hernia. There is no word from McNabb or the Eagles on their decision, but McNabb is said to be looking for ways to manage the injury for the remainder of the season. However, he may finally be succumbing to the realization that surgery is needed. "I'm not really in a hurry to get under the knife and have surgery," McNabb said. "But sometimes you hear so many times that it may be time to get it done."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Donovan McNabb (FA) will not start in week 11. His status beyond this week is uncertain. "He's not moving around very well," HC Andy Reid said. McNabb will see a specialist Thursday, and his status for the remainder of the season will likely be determined during or soon after the visit.

QB Donovan McNabb (FA) is not looking good to play in week 11. "I wouldn't bet on it," HC Andy Reid said Tuesday when asked if McNabb could start. "He doesn't look good today."

*** Thursday Update *** QB Steve McNair (FA) HC Brian Billick did not deny the possibility that QB Steve McNair could be the backup QB the rest of the season, even after he recovers from his shoulder injury. McNair is in the worst slump of his career, suffering more injuries this season than he has thrown touchdown passes. "It has to do with Steve's strength, as well, and how we're doing as a team." Billick said in reference to whether or not he starts another game this season. But what about McNair's playing days in Baltimore period? "That's a question that I really can't answer. Only time will tell that."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Steve McNair (FA) has suffered an injury paving the way for QB Kyle Boller to step in as the starter this weekend against the Cleveland Browns. Ravens HC Brian Billick made the announcement on his weekly radio show on WBAL 1090. "It's a subluxation of the shoulder, which basically means it keeps popping in and out," Billick said. "So, Kyle is starting this week." Billick added that McNair, who went 17-of-26 for 128 yards and one interception in Sunday's 21-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, could be sidelined for a minimum of two to three weeks. Rookie QB Troy Smith will now move into the backup position after spending the entire year as the Ravens' 3rd signal caller.

QB Steve McNair (FA) McNair will miss the next two to three weeks as he deals with a shoulder injury. The reality is that he's looked like a shell of his former self, injured or not. The team will go with Kyle Boller under center.

"Just like anybody's sprained ankle, it hurts when you put pressure on it," Orton said. "Hopefully, we'll just continue to make the same amount of improvement this week and have a great chance to play [next] weekend."

QB JaMarcus Russell (FA) Aaron Wilson, of the National Football Post, reports JaMarcus Russell said he is not sure why he was benched in Week 10. "I really can't explain it. I really don't know what to say about it, but that was his decision, and just move on from it," Russell said. Russell has completed only 47.1 percent of his passes this season and has thrown two touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Meanwhile, Jerry McDonald, of ANG Newspapers, reports Chiefs SS Mike Brown said Russell usually only reads one side of the field, which makes it easier for a defense. "Obviously, he's been struggling a little bit. He's turned the ball over more than any quarterback in the league. That's something that we talked about. And usually he only looks at one side of the field. He doesn't read the whole field," Brown said.

And finally, McDonald also reports Raiders head coach Tom Cable said Russell misread consecutive plays when receivers were open, which lead to the benching.

Smith has taken over the starting duties at quarterback on a week-to-week basis. "I think they feel comfortable with both quarterbacks," head coach Mike Singletary said.

When I talk to him, he's just not the Michael Vick I know when he's healthy." Vick underwent an ImPACT test Friday, Nov. 16, to examine cognitive function. Burkholder said Vick was still "below baseline." He will take the same test Monday, Nov. 19. Once he clears that test, Vick will undergo an exercise test on a stationary bicycle.

There's a lot of times where I'm screaming, 'Throw it, throw it.' He can't hear it, but you just want him to let it go because I want him to play the next play. But that's ingrained in him.

QB Andrew Luck (IND) is being sought to change his running style by head coach Chuck Pagano. "We're going to talk every day until he figures it out and we figure it out as a team," Pagano said. "He knows full well that he can't do that. He can't put himself and this team in jeopardy. You love the grit, and you love the toughness and all that stuff. But playing the position like a linebacker? You can't." Asked whether Luck can do anything in terms of conditioning at the moment, Pagano suggested that wasn't in the immediate plans.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Andrew Luck (IND) said he will not change the way he plays after multiple quarterbacks suffered concussions in Week 10. Luck called those injuries the 'nature of the game,' and he does not believe it was possible to play as well as he can if he's worrying about getting injured. His sentiments are shared by interim head coach Bruce Arians. "His athleticism puts himself in harm's way a lot. You've got to be able to protect yourself out there and get rid of the football at times and other times just be tough enough to handle it," Arians said. "I'm not going to change a bit the way he plays or approaches the game because other guys get concussions."

Nick Foles has started in his absence and will continue to take first-team repetitions in practice Tuesday, Nov. 12. "I think what we've done for the last two weeks has worked for us pretty good," Kelly said. "So we're going to stick to that. It's gotten us 16 touchdowns, no interceptions and two wins, so why would we change?" Foles has 10 touchdown passes in the last two weeks. Kelly plans to take the quarterback situation day-by-day with Vick improving.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Nick Foles (KC) said he is ready to start if Michael Vick is unable to play in Week 11, as expected. "I'm ready," Foles said. "I'm excited to just play again.

*** Friday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) partially participated in Friday's practice.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) has passed concussion tests this week and is currently on track to start against the Chicago Bears in Week 11 Monday, Nov. 19.

QB Alex Smith (KC) was doing much better Monday, Nov. 12, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. Smith slept well, and his concussion symptoms were okay.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) said Wednesday, Nov. 16, that any talk about a possible contract extension can wait until after the season. "It's nothing I've talked about or even really thought about," Smith said. "It's so early. I'm focused on playing football. It's not something I want to think about in the middle of the season, to be honest with you."

QB Alex Smith (KC) was medically cleared to practice Monday, Nov. 15, but he has been relegated to backup duties behind Troy Smith, according to CSNBayArea.com's Matt Maiocco.

*** Saturday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) reentered the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback picture Friday as a backup. Even with an injured shoulder and a sore forearm, Smith can throw the ball better right now than newly injured third-stringer QB Shaun Hill. He struggled to grip the ball and pass it in Friday's practice after dislocating and fracturing his right index finger. "What a strange week," Smith said.

*** Friday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to be available to play this weekend.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) Smith, who admitted Wednesday to experiencing lingering soreness in his right shoulder and forearm, said Thursday afternoon that he will not start against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Trent Dilfer will get his third start of the season. When asked if he thought he would play again this season, Smith replied, "I think so. A lot of it has to do with what Dr. Andrews thinks and what our doctors think, as far as the long term...how long it's going to take for this to go away. The point is to come back when you're functional, come back when it works and I can be productive."

Smith also said he was frustrated that HC Mike Nolan has characterized his shoulder as a non-issue when in fact it has been anything but. Tuesday, Nolan was pressed about the health of his quarterback and said he's fine. Nolan said Wednesday's admission by Smith was the first he had heard the shoulder has been the root of his problems. He also was not happy Smith went to the media before the head coach. "I spoke with him (Smith) right after practice, and maybe I need to talk to him again because so many things have been said," Nolan said. "As a matter of fact, I'll go see him now. The communication lines aren't as good as I had thought. We'll see what that's about."

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Alex Smith (KC) partially participated in Wednesday’s practice and might sit this weekend. Smith finally admitted Wednesday what almost everyone had observed: that his shoulder is greatly affecting his play. And not only that, but his forearm is bothering him, too. HC Mike Nolan has said the reason for Smith's problems with inaccuracy is not tied to his shoulder. However, Smith admitted that his shoulder (as well as his right forearm) has been bothering him. Smith first experienced forearm problems during the bye week after he began throwing a lot after having his right arm in a sling for several days.

QB Alex Smith (KC) turned in another poor performance Monday night against the Seahawks, completing just 12 of 28 passes for 114 yards. But HC Mike Nolan and teammates alike are supporting their starting quarterback. "He'll be all right," OG Larry Allen said. "I believe in him. I'm going to stick with him." Nolan said evaluations on Smith would not be made until after the season, indicating a change at center is not a current option.

At this stage, Pennington said, he's not certain if he will play again. He might not make that decision until March. However, regardless of what that decision is, the chances of Pennington playing for the Dolphins again are quite slim. The team has a starting quarterback in QB Chad Henne. They have committed time and resources on making backup Pat White a success. They also have Tyler Thigpen under contract.

ESPN analyst Jon Gruden also suggested guard John Jerry tipped off plays by turning to look at Tannehill on passing plays. "I don't think there's concern," Tannehill said. "We go against our defense every day throughout camp and OTAs. If we were tipping off something that was so blatantly obvious, they would tell us, and they would be able to defend it."

Team doctors have advised Leftwich to not play for the remainder of the 2006 season.

QB Byron Leftwich (PIT) went to Birmingham, Alabama on Monday to receive a second opinion on the status of his injured ankle. No additional information is currently available.

QB Zach Mettenberger (PIT) needs to get the ball out of his hand faster and check down quicker, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Mettenberger has had these problems dating back to his days at LSU (and even Georgia). He's got a big arm, but accuracy has always been a problem. His game also suffers when under duress.

*** Thursday Update *** QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) The Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger will likely approach a contract extension this offseason with Roethlisberger having two years left on his current contract. Roethlisberger could ask for more than $20 million a year in a new deal. "They could always structure the deal so Roethlisberger wouldn't count as much against the cap next year as he would if they didn't sign him to a new deal," the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac pointed out. "But, based on the Joe Flacco deal, the price of paying a quarterback, especially one with two Super Bowls victories, has gone way up. At a minimum, Roethlisberger is going to want $75 million over three years. And do the Steelers want to pay that?"

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) is refuting reports that suggested he might seek a trade after the 2013 season. "It's ridiculous," Roethlisberger said after Sunday's 23-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills. "This is where I've always wanted to be. I don't want to play for anyone else." President Art Rooney II also issued a statement saying the previous report was "erroneous," and he has no intentions of trying to trade Roethlisberger.

*** Wednesday Update *** QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) did not practice on Wednesday. Roethlisberger was "extremely sore" Tuesday, Nov. 13, and "hurting pretty bad," according to a source, following his injuries suffered in Week 10. Roethlisberger's rib injury is a greater concern than his injured shoulder. The ailment (a break of the first rib) is considered rare and dangerous. He will not play in Week 11 as doctors are concerned that the rib injury could lead to more internal damage if he played. The timeframe for his return is unclear but it's looking like a multi week absence.

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) is dealing with a sternoclavicular sprain in his shoulder, which is an uncommon and painful injury. It's the same injury that forced former QB Brett Favre to end his streak of 297 straight games played. A sternoclavicular sprain involves ligament damage to the joint connecting the breastbone and collarbone, and normal recovery time is typically three weeks to multiple months. Head coach Mike Tomlin said Byron Leftwich will receive the majority of snaps in practice this week and is expected to start against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 11.

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) is dealing with a fractured right thumb. He suffered the injury in the team's Week 10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but Roethlisberger didn't miss any plays. Roethlisberger will wear a splint and wear a glove on his right hand to protect his fractured thumb for the rest of the year. "It will be painful but it takes a lot to keep me out," said Roethlisberger, who is wearing a velcro wrap to protect the thumb. "We'll concoct a splint. I'll have a glove on for the rest of the year." He doesn't expect to miss the team's next game in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

QB Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) HC Mike Tomlin hopes Ben Roethlisberger will be able to practice in preparation for Week 11 against the Chargers. "It's our intent right now that we're hopeful that he'll practice," Tomlin said. "Of course the shoulder is what it is. It's something he has dealt with and will continue to deal with. We'll see where he is when he comes in here and gets looked at today."

*** Friday Update *** RB Ameer Abdullah (DET) has had his development hampered by his ball security issues, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. This whole backfield is a murky mess.

"I'm like, 'Telling me ain't going to help.' But it's OK. I like to cook anyway." Harrison averaged 9.6 yards on five carries against the Broncos for 48 yards. He also caught one pass for 9 yards. On one first-quarter scoring drive, he gained 44 yards on four carries and had the reception, but touched the ball only once in the second half. "With my competitive nature, it's always going to be frustrating," Harrison said. "It's hard. But at the same time, I just have to keep working and keep paying attention when Jamal [Lewis] is in, so when I do get a chance, I know what's going on." HC Romeo Crennel said this week that the Browns will try to get Harrison the ball more.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Jerome Harrison (DET) HC Romeo Crennel said the team will try to be "a little more consistent" about getting the ball in Jerome Harrison's hands.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Joseph Addai (FA) has been downgraded to out for Week 11. Mike Hart has been downgraded to out as well.

*** Friday Update *** RB Joseph Addai (FA) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 19. He is listed as questionable for Week 11 and is not expected to play. It's usually a bad sign when a player returning from injury is unable to practice following the day that they returned to practice. Addai worked some Thursday but was unable to go Friday. Philip B. Wilson of the Indianapolis Star said, "I now lean again toward him not playing Sunday at New England."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Joseph Addai (FA) partially participated in Thursday's practice. We'll see what he can do tomorrow but it's looking like he could be a game time decision.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Joseph Addai (FA) did not practice on Wednesday.

*** Friday Update *** RB Shaun Alexander (FA) is questionable, but judging from HC Mike Holmgren's comments, it looks like Alexander will sit this weekend. "We had a talk, and I told him until he can practice the whole week, until he can have a normal week of practice I'm not going to put him on the field," Holmgren said after Friday's practice that Alexander watched in sweats.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Shaun Alexander (FA) missed practice Thursday as expected. They'll see if he can work Friday and then the team will make a decision on his playing status.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Shaun Alexander (FA) is not expected to practice until Friday according to HC Mike Holmgren.

*** Friday Update *** RB Shaun Alexander (FA) practiced on Friday but will be a game-time decision. With regards to Alexander and QB Matt Hasselbeck, HC Mike Holmgren will not say for sure how much playing time, if any at all, the players will get. To keep the 49ers guessing the Seahawks have listed them as game time decisions.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Shaun Alexander (FA) practiced again Thursday and didn't have any setbacks. If all goes well with Friday's practice, he could start Sunday. There is a feeling though that he would see a lighter than normal workload as the team eases him back into the lineup.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Shaun Alexander (FA) practiced well on Wednesday and appears ready to return to game action. Alexander seemed comfortable running and changing direction. However, his status for this weekend will depend greatly on how he feels tomorrow after this day of work. "Today was very successful," Alexander said. "It's all about what my foot can take. I think that's going to be the greatest test (when I ask for) 50 carries - which is probably what I will ask for when we get to Friday and I still feel good. We're still in a ‘we'll see’, but today was good."

RB Shaun Alexander (FA) is expected to practice on Wednesday, HC Mike Holmgren said, and his availability for Sunday's game would depend on how things go from there. "For the past three weeks he has experienced very little pain," Holmgren said. "And then they've kind of stressed it a little bit and having him cut and do some of those things to see how that reacts. And it's my understanding that they're going to let him test this in practice because he does not feel any pain."

RB Montee Ball (FA) is hopeful of putting in a full week of full practice, and he is poised to return to the lineup in Week 11 against the St. Louis Rams after missing five games. Ball wants to do more than just return, though; "to try and get my old job back." "It's who's healthy, No. 1 first and foremost. We've been evaluating that week to week ... we'll evaluate it again come Wednesday," head coach John Fox said. "Doesn't matter how I feel, it's how they feel ... Time heals, we'll see how they feel come Wednesday."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Tiki Barber (FA) had more comments regarding his sprained thumb. "I'm not worried about it, to tell you the truth," Barber said. "I played most of the game last week against the Bears after the injury. So it's not something that's entered my consciousness."

RB Tiki Barber (FA) said that his sprained thumb is fine and it won't keep him from playing Week 11. "It's more a pain in the butt is what it is", said Barber.

RB Kevan Barlow (FA) emerged as New York's running back in Sunday's upset win over the Patriots. Barlow, who hadn't had a run over eight yards since week one, trudged through the mud for carries of nine, 11 and 12 yards en route to gaining 75 yards and a touchdown. Barlow said his playing time was more a matter of circumstance than anything else. "I think my opportunity to go out there was a little more because it ended up being the type of game where we needed to run the ball," he said.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Joique Bell (FA) partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Mike Bell (FA) has taken his benching in stride. After running for 136 yards against Indianapolis, Bell gained just 28 yards at Pittsburgh and found himself deactivated Sunday against Oakland when HC Mike Shanahan played Damien Nash instead. "I figured I didn't do anything wrong to get into his doghouse, so he did what was best for the team and at that time he felt Nash deserved a chance," Bell said after practice Wednesday. "I was under the impression I didn't do anything wrong. I try to look at the bright things in every situation." Bell said he was fueled by the move, however. "Definitely. I'm a big-time competitor and I don't like being on the sidelines. I'm going to do whatever it takes to get back into the mix."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Tatum Bell (FA) After selling phones for a few months at the Aurora Mall, Bell was back in the Broncos’ locker room on Wednesday. “Tatum is an explosive back with a lot of speed,” Jay Cutler said. “He understands the offense, is familiar with our lingo and our terminology. He should be able to step in and be an immediate impact, hopefully.” HC Mike Shanahan was a bit more reserved in his comments: “He was the only one left,” joked Shanahan. “Tatum has played well when he’s played here. I think he’s averaged around five yards. Obviously we needed someone who is familiar with our system and terminology. I don’t think he’s in great football shape yet, but hopefully in a short time he will be.”

RB Tatum Bell (FA) has been signed by the team. Bell is expected to suit up for the Broncos in Week 11 at Atlanta. According to NFL Network's Adam Schefter, Bell could be carrying the football a significant amount of time this Sunday. Stay tuned.

*** Friday Update *** RB Tatum Bell (FA) practiced fully on Friday but remains questionable for this weekend. Even though he is not fully healed, he may get another start this weekend. How effective he will be is unclear.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Tatum Bell (FA) HC Mike Shanahan disagreed with a reporter's description of the Broncos' running-back situation as "volatile" because of the use of four different players at the position in the last two games. "Well I don't think that it is very volatile," Shanahan said. "Right now we are going to get a chance to see how (Tatum Bell) looks this week. I think both toes are bothering him more than he let on last week and we will try to get him well and evaluate him during the week as well as the rest of our backs." Both Cobbs and Tatum Bell were on the injury report Wednesday, although each practiced. "We have a bunch of guys that are nicked up. Damien (Nash) has been nicked up; Cedric has been nicked up; Mike Bell has looked good," Shanahan added. "We will evaluate that throughout the week and try to come up with the best combination on Sunday night." For his part, Bell says he's lost a step because of two sprained big toes. That admission is the first for Bell, who had a bad game last week at Oakland. He did not practice fully on Thursday and remains questionable.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Tatum Bell (FA) practiced on Wednesday but is once again listed as questionable for this weekend with two sprained big toes.

RB Tatum Bell (FA) convinced HC Mike Shanahan he was healthy enough to play against the Raiders, but it was apparent in his performance that Bell was still hurting from two sprained big toes. Shanahan won't be so easy to convince next time. "I'm kind of disappointed in myself that I played Tatum Bell as much as I did," Shanahan offered in a rare public admission of regret. "Even though he says he's healthy, I don't think he's as healthy as he says he is. I saw that in the game."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Michael Bennett (FA) has been signed by the team. To create a spot for Bennett, LB Derek Smith was released.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said Jahvid Best is improving from his concussion. "I'll just say this with Jahvid, he is improving," Schwartz said. "He's back in the building and those kind of things, on a limited basis. I think that's obviously a good sign, but we still don't have clearance for him to do physical activity yet."

"We'll see," Coughlin said. "There is no sense speculating. He is going to have to go out and practice. He certainly has had a couple of good solid weeks of rest and hopefully he will be able to do some things. Probably won't know until we get him out there."

*** Saturday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) Harvey Fialkov and Omar Kelly, of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, report Ronnie Brown underwent surgery Friday, Nov. 20, to repair a Lisfranc fracture to his right foot and head coach Tony Sparano said the surgery "went well". Although it is uncertain how long Brown's recovery time will be, G Donald Thomas suffered a similar injury in the opening game last year and began training four months later.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) has been placed on Injured Reserve so his season is over. Jeff Darlington is reporting it's believed Brown suffered a Lisfranc fracture in the midsection of his right foot. The team hasn't confirmed that though.

RB Ronnie Brown (FA) did not practice on Tuesday.

Omar Kelly, of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, reports Brown (who will likely miss the team's Week 11 game) not only can't walk without the assistance of crutches, but his foot problem is a bit more serious than the medical staff initially thought. He's presently battling soreness in his right foot, which was initially diagnosed as an ankle sprain. There is a possibility Brown will be sent to see a specialist within the next two days because the injury could sideline him for more than Week 11.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) practiced Friday for the first time this week. Even though HC Nick Saban refused to give Brown the go-ahead, Brown said he expects to start Sunday against the Vikings. "It's kind of reassuring that I went out there and felt pretty good," Brown said. Saban said reserves Sammy Morris and Travis Minor will get more work regardless of Brown's status.

*** Friday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) missed practice Wednesday and Thursday because of a groin injury but returned to participate at the beginning of Friday's practice. Brown remains confident he will play in Sunday's game despite a nagging groin injury. If Brown is limited or isn't at full strength, backup RB Sammy Morris likely will see an increased role against the Vikings. He says he will be ready to go. Morris said he has felt increasingly better as the season has gone on after being forced to completely recondition himself because of his substance-abuse suspension. Nick Saban did say the workloads for Morris and Travis Minor will likely increase.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) After re-aggravating a groin pull in the first quarter of Sunday's game, RB Ronnie Brown said he played most of the game at 70 percent. "It's not 100 percent, but I plan on playing," he said after he missed parts of Wednesday's practice. He did some light work on the side and is listed as questionable on the injury report. Brown said his injury limits his ability to get outside and turn corners. "It was more aggravated when I would kind of stride out a little bit," he said. "But as long as I was between the tackles, I was all right." Brown worked on the sidelines again on Thursday.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Ronnie Brown (FA) did not practice with the team on Wednesday. Instead, Brown, who is battling a groin pull, worked on the side and looked to be in decent shape. Brown has said he does expect to play this week versus the Vikings.

RB Ronnie Brown (FA) suffered a groin injury during the team's Week 10 game. Head coach Nick Saban said that the team would manage the injury throughout the week. However, Brown's availability for Week 11 is currently uncertain.

*** Friday Update *** RB Correll Buckhalter (FA) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play in Week 11.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Correll Buckhalter (FA) did not practice on Thursday.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Correll Buckhalter (FA) partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

*** Friday Update *** RB Correll Buckhalter (FA) sat out Friday's practice due to "flu-like symptoms" and was added to the team's injury report as probable. HC Andy Reid is holding out hope that his reserve running back will be rested and recovered in time for Sunday's game against Tennessee. "We are hoping that Buck' is going to be okay and this thing is going to work its way through and he'll be ready to go," Reid said. "It really hit him Wednesday and then Thursday he practiced, he was feeling okay. But this morning it was right back. "He just wasn't feeling very good this morning, so we backed off on him. We'll see how it goes." Reserve RB Ryan Moats would likely be activated if Buckhalter can not play. "There'd be a chance that if he (Buck) can't (play), Ryan would fill that spot," Reid said.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Michael Bush (FA) David White, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports Michael Bush will remain the team's starting running back in Week 11. However, head coach Tom Cable is expected to go with the hot hand in a rotation with Darren McFadden and Justin Fargas.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Tashard Choice (FA) practiced fully on Thursday.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Tashard Choice (FA) practiced fully on Wednesday. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said he is uncertain Choice will play in Week 11, even though Choice has declared himself ready. Shanahan also said he isn't sure exactly what kind of role Choice will play once he is cleared for action. "You don't know about running backs or safeties until they play," Shanahan said. "People can tell you a running back is a good running back or a safety is a good safety, but at least in my experience, until they actually put the pads on and they do it in live situations, you don't know for sure."

RB Tashard Choice (FA) said he will play in the team's Week 11 game. With Mike Shanahan in charge it wouldn't surprise us to see Choice get into the starting lineup in the near future.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Tashard Choice (FA) sounds like he will continue to be a nonfactor despite Felix Jones still being out with a bad hamstring. "[Choice] can play some, and I think he's come along well there and we've worked him more certainly," HC Wade Phillips said. "But I'm looking forward to Marion have a good game this game."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Reuben Droughns (FA) did not practice on Wednesday.

*** Friday Update *** RB Reuben Droughns (FA) did not practice on Friday and will be a game-time decision. Droughns agreed Friday when he was asked if it was fair to say he was going to do 'everything humanly possible' to get onto the field Sunday during the team's game against arch rival Pittsburgh. Droughns suffered the injury last week during the team's win at Atlanta but said it didn't become more severe until the following day. He missed portions of practice all week. "It has gotten a lot better," Droughns said. "Hopefully coach can make that decision whether it's today, tomorrow, or Sunday. We'll find out real soon."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Reuben Droughns (FA) It came as a bit of a surprise when HC Romeo Crennel said Wednesday that starting running back Reuben Droughns had sprained a foot during Sunday's win at Atlanta and would be listed as questionable for this week's game vs. Pittsburgh. While Droughns isn't putting up the numbers he did last year, when he rushed for 1,232 yards to become the team's first 1,000-yard rusher since 1985, he's still a crucial part in taking on a staunch defense like the Steelers. And, if Droughns' injury persists, the team will have to try to mount a multidimensional offense with backups Jason Wright and rookie Jerome Harrison in the tailback spot. "I'm always ready because even if Reuben is not on the injury report and we're going into a game 100 percent healthy something can happen in the middle of a game," Wright said. "So I always have to be ready. It's not any different for me. I'm going to go there, know all my special teams assignments and be ready (to run) as well." Droughns might be a game-time decision for this weekend. He was out of his protective boot Thursday and stretched with his teammates before practice, but he wasn't in full uniform. Crennel said he's confident that Droughns could still play and be effective with limited practice time, if it comes to that. Crennel said Droughns "is experienced enough, he knows the reads" to play Sunday even with limited practice time. Droughns will continue to receive treatment and will be evaluated over the next few days -- all the way up to Sunday morning if necessary.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Reuben Droughns (FA) has a sprained foot and didn't practice on Wednesday. HC Romeo Crennel said Droughns would be in a protective boot Wednesday and will be evaluated as the week goes on.

RB T.J. Duckett (FA) could see more playing time in the coming weeks as starting RB Kevin Jones continues to labor with his foot injury during the early portion of each week. Jones typically takes Mondays and Tuesdays off to rest, but the Lions next two home games come just five days apart. They host the Giants Sunday followed by the Packers next Thursday on Thanksgiving. How much Jones can contribute with little rest in between could determine Duckett's playing time.

He’s a special guy and we need him in this game.”

*** Saturday Update *** RB Ahman Green (FA) will not play this weekend. This will be the fourth time he is inactive, and HC Gary Kubiak could not say for sure that Green will be healthy enough to play again this season. "He has not responded over the last couple of weeks to the rest we've given him," Kubiak said Friday. "He came out and did a little (Thursday). His knee swelled this morning. So he will be down. And we will work from there." Ron Dayne will start in his place.

*** Friday Update *** RB Ahman Green (FA) will not play this weekend.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Ahman Green (FA) partially participated in Thursday's practice. When asked after practice about RB Ahman Green, Houston Texans HC Gary Kubiak gave the following response: "I think it's just touch-and-go. There's nothing different. He did just a little bit today which was our plan, individuals, just a few reps. We'll know more tomorrow. I know it's frustrating for you all and everybody but that's the way we're going to treat him and if he works tomorrow and feels good and says he can go, then he'll be ready to go."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Ahman Green (FA) did not practice on Wednesday. Green was sent by the team to Birmingham, Ala., to be examined by Dr. James Andrews. "The good news is that they didn't find anything else," head athletic trainer Kevin Bastin said. "He's got some tendinitis in his knee, and he took a blow to it. We're hopeful that he's turned the corner." "We're going to continue monitoring what he can tolerate and how he reacts from day to day," coach Gary Kubiak said. "We'll keep the same plan, which is for him to work a little on Thursday, a little on Friday and be ready to go on game day. If something alters that and he doesn't think he can go, then we'll have to make adjustments, but that's the way we're going to treat it the rest of the year."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Travis Henry (FA) has a partial tear of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his left knee, but was prepared for practice Thursday afternoon. What happens at practice could well determine whether he could line up against the Titans on Monday. "I feel like I can play, but I'll see what I can do today; that's going to determine when I get back," he said. Henry had a brace covering his knee, but he noted it was for practice-time use only. "I'm not going to wear it in any games," he said. Henry's hearing with the NFL has been moved up to Friday.

Jennings saw seven carries in the team's Week 10 game. Lewis had 10 carries and Harrison never touched the ball. Head coach Eric Mangini said, "We wanted to take a look at Chris because I think he's earned a look based on the things that he's done and that was something that we did this past week.

"If he continues to progress in practice, I think that will continue to be the case." It seems Jenning's increased playing time is coming at the expense of Jerome Harrison.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Jamal Lewis (FA) ran for 216 yards against the Bengals in Week 2, but in the remaining seven games he's played he has 299 yards. Lewis cited good defenses and playing from behind as reasons why his production has slipped some lately. "There's a lot of things from the outside looking in that people just won't understand and it's not for me to explain," said Lewis. "My coaches are happy with what I'm doing and want me to push on and they know what's going on." HC Romeo Crennel isn't worried either. "When he ran for 200, we felt pretty good about him then," Crennel said. "I think he still has that kind of ability. We'll give him more opportunities - get him into the open some and when he does that he gains yards."

HC Dick Jauron said he was "not optimistic" Lynch would play vs. the Patriots. Jauron said Lynch's injury is more significant than an "average" ankle sprain, and he could be out for several weeks. The Bills are expected to use both rookie Dwayne Wright and veteran Anthony Thomas in Lynch's place.

RB Marshawn Lynch (FA) underwent further tests Monday on his sprained left ankle, but HC Dick Jauron hopes the rookie running back will be ready to play against New England this weekend. Jauron said Lynch is sore, but noted that initial tests showed no broken bones after the player limped off the field on Sunday. "There is a concern," Jauron said. "But as (Lynch) said last night, he feels like he'll play. We've got to kind of wait and see on that one. But he's very upbeat."

The next opportunity that arises, he'll look to step up to the challenge," director of player personnel Nick Caserio said.

RB Willis McGahee (FA) Broncos head coach John Fox said Monday, Nov. 12, that ball security would be an emphasis this week during practices. Willis McGahee lost his fourth fumble of the season in Week 10. While it didn't factor into the team's blowout victory, Fox knows it might be crucial in a closer game. "I know Eric Studesville, our running backs coach, will emphasize that," Fox said. "There'll be a couple emphases this week on how to recover a fumble and then how not to fumble."

*** Friday Update *** RB Willis McGahee (FA) said following Week 11 that he is not fully healthy despite playing in the game. McGahee had 18 yards on 12 carries.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Vernand Morency (FA) is trying to take things a bit slower. "I feel like I'm a big-play guy and sometimes that hurts me," Maroney said. "Maybe I see too much, and I feel like I have the speed so I can bounce around to the outside, and sometimes that hurts me." Maroney acknowledged that the coaching staff would rather he gain most of his yards in 4- to 5-yard chunks, but he'd rather get more. Since his return from the groin injury, Maroney said, he's been working on "running more like they want me to run, but still with my own style."

*** Saturday Update *** RB Sammy Morris (FA) played on Thursday for the first time since October 20th. He said yesterday he is hopeful he can move forward from the knee injury that sidelined him for three games. "I think so," said Morris. "I guess it could be day to day." HC Bill Belichick said Morris' five carries (for 14 yards) were more a reflection of the game than the running back's health. Since the Patriots trailed early, they had to go to their two-minute offense, which features Kevin Faulk. "Had we been in a different mode, I am sure Sammy probably would have gotten more carries, as BenJarvus [Green-Ellis] and Kevin probably would have been in the game a lot less," Belichick said.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Sammy Morris (FA) partially participated in Friday's practice and is questionable to play in Week 11. Morris is reportedly unlikely to play a large role in Thursday’s game (if he’s even active).

Brian Leonard had previously filled that role, but Pittman will serve as the No. 2 back and spell Jackson occasionally during games. Leonard will be the primary fullback and occasional third-down back. Pittman was claimed off waivers from the New Orleans Saints on Sept. 2. "The idea was, at some point, he was going to be at that spot," HC Scott Linehan said. "We are now in a position where we can use Brian in primarily the fullback spot, which is why we drafted and brought him here. Pittman had enough time in our offense at this point that we felt he would be ready to be the No. 2 guy at the tailback spot."

Portis will return to the field in Week 11 against the Tennessee Titans after missing five games, according to The Washington Post's Rick Maese. "If we didn't feel good about him, we wouldn't play him," head coach Mike Shanahan said. "He looked like he'd be good to go." Ryan Torain has been ruled out for Week 11 with a bad hamstring. Shanahan would not discuss the exact role that Portis would play against the Titans. If Portis handles the majority of the work, Keiland Williams could be designated as the third-down back.

Rick Maese, of The Washington Post, reports Redskins head coach Jim Zorn said Clinton Portis has been ruled out for Week 11.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Clinton Portis (FA) did not practice on Wednesday.

RB Clinton Portis (FA) The Associated Press reports Clinton Portis is still experiencing "a little blurriness" and is uncertain if he can play in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys. He will regain his starting job when he returns to the team, but head coach Jim Zorn wants to see Portis participate in a full practice before playing him.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Clinton Portis (FA) did not practice on Friday and is officially questionable for Week 11. In reality, Portis is more doubtful than questionable and is not expected to play.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Clinton Portis (FA) did not practice on Thursday. Portis was absent from the morning practice in sloppy wet conditions Thursday. HC Jim Zorn was underwhelmed. "I was hoping today there would be a little more optimism, but there's not," Zorn said. Ladell Betts performed well in practice with a brace on his injured knee. "He made some cuts," Zorn said. Shaun Alexander worked with the first-team offense. However, the team still hopes that Betts will be healthy enough to get the start if Portis can not play. Alexander will start if both Portis and Betts are unable to play.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Clinton Portis (FA) did not practice on Wednesday. Portis is recovering from a second-degree MCL sprain and won't practice until Friday, HC Jim Zorn said. Zorn added that it would be "foolish" to play Portis if he is only 60-70 percent, and that the team will not know whether he can play until he warms up Sunday night before the game. "The proof will be in how he warms up," Zorn said. Portis has been fitted for a knee brace, but Zorn said that he could opt not to wear it should he play. "He wants to be back and he's working hard to be back," Zorn said.

Portis appeared Wednesday on Michael Irvin's radio show and said that his knee was bad enough that he wouldn't be able to play tomorrow even if the game was the Super Bowl. We'll hopefully know more Friday evening.

RB Clinton Portis (FA) is questionable to play in Week 11. HC Jim Zorn said Monday that Portis' chances of facing Dallas are "50-50." He has a knee sprain that has worsened since the team last played November 3rd. Zorn remains optimistic that Portis will play, but conceded that "it would be a major issue for all of us," if he cannot. Zorn said that second-string back Ladell Betts may be back from his knee injury for Sunday's game, but that he is not "expecting" that result. On Tuesday, Portis revealed that the injury he suffered is a second-degree MCL sprain. "Right now I can't straighten it out," Portis said of his left leg. "I just started bending it today. So hopefully by the end of the week. We've got five days, so hopefully I'll be ready."

RB Clinton Portis (FA) had three screws inserted into his broken right 4th metacarpal bone in his hand during a surgical procedure on Monday. The Redskins apparently will not risk further damage to Portis and plan shut him down for the season according to ESPN and the Washington Post. ESPN is also reporting that Portis will have surgery on his left shoulder. He could be ready in a month but with the Skins being 3-6 and not much hope for the playoffs, they felt the risk would be too great. The rushing duties will now be split between Ladell Betts and T.J. Duckett. Betts will be the team’s starting RB, HC Joe Gibbs said that Duckett will play a prominent role in the offense.

RB Chris Rainey (FA) will require several weeks for his broken rib to heal, but he still played in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Nov. 12. He will continue to wear a protective wrap around his rib cage, but it won't limit him in any way.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Brian Westbrook (FA) Marcus Hayes, of the Philadelphia Daily News, reports Brian Westbrook was not allowed to attend team meetings this week, in addition to sitting out practice due to a concussion. "This is on the doctor's orders: Back off, let him rest, that's the plan the doctor had for him," head coach Andy Reid said. "Next week he can start going to meetings and some things. We'll see how he feels as he goes."

*** Friday Update *** RB Brian Westbrook (FA) ESPNews reports Brian Westbrook will be out in Week 11 and likely the two following weeks as well with his concussion.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Brian Westbrook (FA) will not play in Week 11.

Head coach Andy Reid said Westbrook was "foggy" after the second concussion. Reid said it was "too early" to decide if Westbrook's season was over.

After meeting with doctors today, Westbrook received encouraging news. "We are very encouraged by Brian's progress, we believe that he has an excellent prognosis and we expect a full recovery," reported Drs. Maroon and Collins. "We developed a comprehensive physical rehab plan for Brian, and we will repeat the detailed testing in the next two to three weeks."

RB Brian Westbrook (FA) Steve Wyche, of NFL.com, reports there is speculation that Brian Westbrook could be out for a prolonged period of time after suffering another concussion in Week 10. Head coach Andy Reid expressed concern for Westbrook's health following the game. "I feel bad for Brian. I feel bad for him. It's something that our doctors will look at and be on top of right when we get back," Reid said. "In these types of situations, football is secondary. We've got to look at this kid and for his future and make sure everything is OK for him before he gets back out there."

Asked whether or not that remains a fair deal, Westbrook hinted that it very well may not be any longer. "The contract I signed back then, it made sense for me at that point," said Westbrook, who also tried to steer focus back towards the team and their season. Westbrook held out of training camp before signing his deal in 2005 and he's likely trying to rework his deal before he turns 30 in two seasons. The Eagles are wary of signing veterans to big deals once they hit the magic number. "You never know what's going to transpire. There's nothing guaranteed in the NFL except for your signing bonus, so you try to maximize that as much you can," Westbrook said.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Cadillac Williams (FA) has returned to the active roster, but he'll almost certainly be inactive against the Vikings on Sunday according to HC Jon Gruden on Friday. "I don't foresee [Williams] being a part of this game," Gruden said after the Bucs' final practice. "We'll see how the next 48 hours unfold. We seem to have had some injuries in the backfield. If everything goes as planned, I don't see him being active." "I knew coming in that my chance of playing wasn't too likely," Williams said. "It's not a big surprise."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Cadillac Williams (FA) HC Jon Gruden admitted that Cadillac Williams may not be ready to take the field Sunday against Minnesota. Williams has made a remarkable comeback from a torn patellar tendon early last season, but just recently participated in a full practice. "Let's be honest, Monday was the first time he got hit since last year in Carolina," Gruden said. "Nobody's expecting him to be the featured back this week. Don't know about game-day activations at this point." With Earnest Graham limited with a knee injury, veteran Warrick Dunn could see the bulk of the carries Week 11.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Cadillac Williams (FA) has been activated by the team from their PUP list. To create a spot for Williams, RB Michael Bennett was released. Williams took about 30 snaps in Wednesday’s practice as he simulated Adrian Peterson.

RB Cadillac Williams (FA) could be activated off the PUP list this Wednesday and be ready to play when the team returns to action in week 11. "We staged a couple of drills for Carnell Williams to get hit, and he responded to it. It's exciting," HC Jon Gruden said Monday. "I've said for a long time, it's almost like Christmas is here. Christmas is Wednesday, I hope. We'll see how he feels, talk to the trainer and medical people. If my eyes don't deceive me, I think he's got a chance to be a player this year for our team."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Cadillac Williams (FA) said this might be the most frustrating season in his career with the exception of his sophomore season at Auburn. Williams accepted his part of the blame, admitting he's been trying too hard to make a big play and it is causing him to lose his concentration. "I'm just trying to do a whole lot, and my style is to take what the defense gives me. But with what's been going on, I'm getting a little bit out of my element," he said. Williams has been averaging just 15 carries a game compared to the 20 he received last season. He is averaging just 55.22 rushing ypg.

*** Friday Update *** RB Domanick Williams (FA) was limited in Friday’s practice and remains questionable for this weekend.

"He'll be a member of this team," Cameron said. "He's a Miami Dolphin." As part of the NFL drug program, Williams underwent therapy for the past 5 months in Boston. He declined to discuss the treatment but said he was confident drug testing won't derail his latest comeback.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Ricky Williams (FA) Ricky Williams' suspension ended after more than 18 months today when he was reinstated by the NFL. Williams is scheduled to fly to South Florida for a physical Thursday and meet with HC Cam Cameron, said Williams' agent, Leigh Steinberg. Cameron has given no indication publicly he wants Williams. But Steinberg said he was encouraged by a phone conversation Wednesday with Matt Thomas, Dolphins general counsel-football administration. "His indication was they were interested in Ricky," Steinberg said. "The spirit of the discussion was welcoming. It was a very similar discussion to what you would have regarding a draft choice or any returning player. The only contingent was whether they would have him practice Friday or Monday." Williams is eligible to attend team meetings and practice immediately, but the earliest he would be allowed to play in a game would be against Pittsburgh on Monday night, Nov. 26. The team will have a roster exemption for up to two weeks if and when he starts practicing.

*** Friday Update *** RB David Wilson (FA) Giants head coach stated that the team planned to use David Wilson more in Week 10, but the game situations didn't dictate it. The team is ready to use the rookie to run more and they like his explosiveness out of the backfield. With the team's offense slumping, Wilson has the ability to deliver big plays. However, there are still worries about his pass-catching and blocking abilities.

RB David Wilson (FA) played in just two offensive plays during the team's Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but head coach Tom Coughlin said the plan to get Wilson more playing time was negated by the game situation. The team raves about his explosive running style, but he'll have to work on a number of things before he can gain the coaching staff's trust. "He's got to be able to do all other things besides just running the ball," offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said. "It's not just running the ball when you're a running back in the National Football League. It's about catching passes, it's about blocking, it's about being able to protect the quarterback. All those things are taken into consideration when you determine whether a guy gets playing time or not."

It's not going to affect me in any kind of way. Whatever happens from here on, I can guarantee you I'll definitely be making the best of it. In most cases you hold your fate in your own hands. I'm not letting up in any aspect of what I'm doing. I would imagine that I would continue to be the first guy, and if not, I'll make it that way."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB James Starks (GB) Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said James Starks was promoted to the 53-man roster for one reason - to contribute, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Kareem Copeland.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the offensive line needs to do a better job of opening up holes for the rookie running back. The team is choosing to use Leon Washington in third down situations. "I think Bishop will still get a chance to protect and to catch passes on first and second down," Whisenhunt said. "But one of the things you try to be consistent with is the protection and working together with those things on third down."

*** Friday Update *** RB Larry Johnson (MIA) looks like he could see some playing time this weekend if Cedric Benson misses the game as expected. He's picked up the offense well. Said coach Marvin Lewis of Johnson’s adjustment: “It’s good. He’s done really well. I think he’s been able to make the adjustments very quickly and I’ve been pleased. The main thing is he’s can’t be able to handicap the play caller. It has to be a good mesh together if he was in there and (offensive coordinator) Bob (Bratkowski) was calling the plays.”

RB Larry Johnson (MIA) ESPN.com reports the Bengals signed free-agent Larry Johnson (formerly of the Chiefs) to a one-year deal Tuesday, Nov. 17, a source told John Clayton, of ESPN.com.

ESPN.com also reports Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Johnson will be fourth on the team's depth chart at running back once he signs with the team. "That's what his role would be, it would be as a fourth running back and an opportunity as a backup player on this football team doing all the things backup players do, and that's work their tails off in the kicking game and showing looks [on the scout team] and so forth that way," Lewis said. "And then he would be an insurance policy if something would happen down the line to one of our guys where he'd have a chance to be active. But I couldn't foresee him being active when he was initially here, if this is what happens. And that's what I've told him."

Kent Babb, of The Kansas City Star, reports the Chiefs must pay Johnson $2.1 million to finish this season's guaranteed salary after releasing him. Johnson did, however, forfeit $500,000 in roster bonuses he had with his former team.

RB Larry Johnson (MIA) was reinstated by the team on Monday after missing the past four weeks of action (three weeks for violating team rules, one week for a league-imposed suspension). "He's doing good. He's excited about getting going," HC Herman Edwards said. "We had a good discussion about where he's at, what he's trying to do. Just come in here and get ready to play and find your niche in what we're trying to do. Our offense has changed a little bit. But he's going to be involved in it. He's excited about being back."

In related news, a woman filed a lawsuit against Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson on Monday, alleging negligence, assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress. "This is not about money," said Kirra N. Jones, the woman's attorney. "My client has worked her way through school. She's in the Air Force, National Guard. She's a hardworking student and this really came as an unfortunate incident in her life. But you know what? She's a fighter. She's willing to be the person who finally makes Larry Johnson answer for his repeated bad behavior."

*** Friday Update *** RB Larry Johnson (MIA) is out this weekend, but says he will play again this season. "It's going good," Johnson said Friday. "A lot of people don't realize my foot was swollen bad at the end of the game, then I was on crutches for two, three days. This is only the first week and I'm able to walk fine without using a boot."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Larry Johnson (MIA) will not play this weekend.

He makes some explosive charges and points the finger at head coach Brad Childress, saying that fears that he might be fired if the Vikings finish 4-12 or 5-11 this season, in Benjamin's opinion, are taking precedence to Peterson's health. "Adrian is a competitor and he wants to play," Benjamin said. "But he needs someone to look out for his best interests in the long term."

And that's for someone like a doctor or news writer, who doesn't go out there and make cuts like Adrian Peterson obviously does," Benjamin said. But HC Brad Childress and trainer Eric Sugarman think Peterson could come back as early as Nov. 25 against the Giants, "unless there's some crazy setback", according to Sugarman.

*** Friday Update *** RB Brandon Jacobs (NYG) has yet to play this season. He also clarified that he was not talking about his football career when he tweeted Thursday: "Never work in a place where you hate your boss so much, you should always be happy at work. #YouLiveAndYouLearn." Jacobs noted - on Twitter and to reporters - that he has other business endeavors outside of football. He also noted that his work-related tweet came in response to his brother getting laid off at work.

*** Friday Update *** RB Brandon Jacobs (NYG) is unhappy with the NFL and plans to let them know about it. Jacobs revealed Friday that the league fined him between $5,000 and $10,000 for shoving a football underneath his jersey to celebrate a touchdown run against the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. Jacobs insists that he was not celebrating. He noted that when he puts the ball underneath his jersey to create a bulge around his stomach and then rubs it, he is acknowledging his wife Kimberly, who is pregnant. What confuses Jacobs is that he did the same thing after scoring a touchdown against Tampa Bay on Oct. 29, and the league and the officials did nothing. This time, he was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and later found a letter from the NFL waiting on a stool in front of his locker informing him of the fine. He would not disclose the exact amount of the fine. "I am appealing," said Jacobs, who was surprised that his actions violated the celebration rules. "I think it's unnecessary for them to do that and not give me a warning."

*** Friday Update *** RB Rashad Jennings (NYG) partially participated in Friday's practice but is still expected to play this week.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Rashad Jennings (NYG) partially participated in Thursday's practice. According to WFAN's Paul Dottino said on the radio Thursday that Jennings was doing well running in a straight line, but not doing a ton of cutting as yet. The team is unsure how much of a hit he can take, so in Dottino's opinion, Jennings will not get a full load, especially behind that offensive line. With that in mind, use him as an RB2 but keep in mind that the team could take it easy on him, limiting his upside.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Rashad Jennings (NYG) partially participated in Wednesday's practice. He's looking on track to start this week after missing the last month.

RB Rashad Jennings (NYG) appears to be on track to play in Week 11, according to sources.

RB Rashad Jennings (NYG) Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said Rashad Jennings has earned increased playing time, even when Darren McFadden (hamstring) returns from his injury. Jennings has 190 rushing yards and has caught nine passes for 93 yards in his last two games filling in for McFadden. "It's a production business," Allen said, "and when he's had the opportunity to go in there, he has produced. When you do that, you get more opportunities."

RB Bobby Rainey (NYG) The Ravens placed Bobby Rainey (knee) on Injured Reserve Tuesday, Nov. 13, and promoted CB Chris Johnson to the active roster in a corresponding move.

*** Thursday Update *** RB Shane Vereen (NYG) was on the practice field Thursday, Nov. 14, and is gradually increasing his workload in practice. "It's good to have him back on the field," coach Bill Belichick said Thursday before practice. "This will really be an opportunity for us to evaluate this week kind of where he is, give him some harder assignments and see how he's doing. He's been able to be active and participate but I'd say it will be a higher level competition for him this week on the practice field. As it should be, gradually escalate the intensity of it and see how it goes."

RB Shane Vereen (NYG) Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Shane Vereen (wrist) will have a role when he is activated from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list but is not sure when Vereen will be able to return. "As soon as he is ready and able to help us and we are able to play him, certainly he will have a role in the game. He definitely did make a big impact in game one. I don't know if we can expect him to do that right off the bat in his first game back, whenever that is. We'll look forward to having him back."

*** Friday Update *** RB Matt Forte (NYJ) partially participated in Friday's practice and is questionable to play this week. Forte (knee) acknowledged that he's unsure if he'll play in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos with a short week on the horizon in Week 12. "I still have to play it smart," Forte said. "I was talking to our head trainer and coach John Fox about it. We have two games in five days (the Bears play at Green Bay on Thanksgiving) and so I have to be smart about it. I don't know what our plan is right now." However, Forte also said he's recovering faster this time around than when he had a similar injury in 2011.

Forte also said he would be open to sharing carries with Jeremy Langford. "I actually like it because now going forward I'm not going to have to play every single play or every down," Forte said. "So we can at least be healthy and be at full speed out there."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Matt Forte (NYJ) did not practice on Thursday. When Forte is able to return, head coach John Fox will have a balancing act getting Forte touches, as well as Jeremy Langford. "This is all tricky," Fox said. "I don't like speculating. I know we're doing everything we can here to create competition amongst our team and learn to enjoy it. So we'll cross that bridge when it happens."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Tony Richardson (NYJ) was excused from Wednesday's practice.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB Tony Richardson (NYJ) may be finished for the 2006 season. On Wednesday Vikings HC Brad Childress indicated it was likely that Richardson, who broke his forearm in last Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers, was likely to be placed on injured reserve later this week. The Vikings plan to use TEs Jeff Dugan and Jim Kleinsasser could see time at fullback.

RB Tony Richardson (NYJ) fractured his right forearm Sunday vs. Green Bay, and his status for Sunday's game in Miami is in question. Richardson's right thumb was broken in San Francisco, but he played through the injury against the Packers. HC Brad Childress said Richardson will not need surgery, but did say that the fullback's status will be determined by his comfort level with the injury.

*** Friday Update *** RB C.J. Spiller (NYJ) is unlikely to be used as a wide receiver in Week 11 against the New York Jets with both Steve Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle) out. "Well I think in the backfield it's much easier to hand him the football than it is to throw him the football, especially vertically down the field. Intermediate throws I have no problem, (or) screens, intermediate routes, but it's really difficult to push that ball downfield to running backs at any position," head coach Doug Marrone said. Spiller had 11 touches (eight carries, three catches) in Week 10. Marrone plans to use multiple tight end sets with the receiving game hurting.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB C.J. Spiller (NYJ) Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the team sees C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson as No. 1 running backs and both will see playing time. Marrone said the team will favor the running back that is more productive during games.

RB C.J. Spiller (NYJ) was on the field for only 22 of the team's 67 offensive snaps during the team's Week 10 game, but head coach Doug Marrone said Spiller was not limited because of his ankle injury. Marrone said the team planned to use Fred Jackson more during the game and that Spiller's playing time will vary from week to week.

*** Saturday Update *** RB C.J. Spiller (NYJ) Bills kept C.J. Spiller on the bench for six red-zone plays at the end of the first half in Week 11 following a 20-yard run that got the team to the Miami Dolphins' 20-yard line with just over one minute remaining. RB Tashard Choice was on the field instead. A third-down pass to WR Stevie Johnson put the Bills at Miami's four-yard line with 15 seconds left and no timeouts remaining. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three incomplete passes and the Bills settled for a 19-yard field goal. Head coach Chan Gailey said of Spiller's absence, "We have certain play situations where if we know we're gonna throw the football anyway, if it's not something he might be vital in, then we'll put Tashard in there. Or if it's Fred (Jackson), we'll put Fred in there, to give (Spiller) a blow and to pass protect and to slip out if we need him to slip out, things like that. We don't do it a lot, but we'll do it some. We'll do it anywhere on the field if that's what we need." Gailey said Spiller is part of the team's red-zone packages.

*** Wednesday Update *** RB C.J. Spiller (NYJ) practiced fully on Wednesday and is expected to play this weekend. Spiller is ready for an increased role in Week 11 as he takes over for injured RB Fred Jackson. Spiller is averaging a league-high 7.3 yards per carry, although he has not received many carries recently. "I'm ready to be the starter," Spiller said. "We had a playmaker go down, but it is what it is and we'll get him back hopefully soon. I've learned so much from him and I'm going to take what I learned from him and apply it on Thursday."

RB C.J. Spiller (NYJ) practiced fully on Tuesday. Bills head coach Chan Gailey said Monday, Nov. 12, that C.J. Spiller will get "lots of opportunities" in the Week 11 game Thursday, Nov. 15, against the Miami Dolphins. Fred Jackson (concussion) will be sidelined.

"We'll have to see how long it lasts."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Roy Helu (OAK) Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said Roy Helu's pass protection has been inconsistent this season and he particularly struggled at times in Week 10.

*** Saturday Update *** RB Taiwan Jones (OAK) had just two carries in Week 10 with RBs Darren McFadden (ankle) and Mike Goodson (ankle) out of the lineup and he is expected to see limited touches again in Week 11. Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp said he needs to see Jones improve in pass protection. "We told him going into the game that the two things that we have to see improvement on is ball security as well as assignments," Knapp said. "Assignments not so much in the run game but in the pass protection and in the route running. That's still a part of his game that he's still improving on. We got to keep in mind, he's still a young player. I've got to see (that) in practice first, consistently. And I haven't seen it consistently in practice, and that's what we look for, is perfection in practice."

*** Thursday Update *** RB Darren Sproles (PHI) wants more opportunities in the offense. Sproles has averaged 2.9 catches or 24.4 yards per game in Philadelphia. "I'm not getting enough chances," Sproles said. "They got me more in there to run routes. DeMarco (Murray) and Ryan (Mathews) get the bulk of the carries. To get in a rhythm you need more touches. That's for any kind of player." Sproles has a chance to see some more work this week if Ryan Mathews is out, as we expect.

*** Thursday Update *** RB DeMarco Murray (TEN) did not practice on Thursday. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Murray does not need a lot of practice work to make his return from a sprained left foot; however, he will not return to the lineup until he is ready. It remains unlikely that Murray will play in Week 11. "I think when he's ready, he'll be ready to go," Garrett said. "You want to have good, quality practice work for him before he plays in a game, but he's played a lot of football. He's a smart guy. We have a lot of different thresholds for him, but he's a guy that you could say he hasn't practiced as much as everybody else but can still play in the ballgame."

*** Wednesday Update *** RB DeMarco Murray (TEN) did not practice on Wednesday. Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett acknowledged Wednesday, Nov. 14, that Murray's status is still up in the air. His return could be complicated by the fact that the Cowboys will play two games in a span of five days. Garrett said the Cowboys won't hold full practices next week and as a result it could be difficult to assess Murray's progress if the injury prevents him from taking the field in Week 11. "Can you really evaluate him?" Garrett said. "But we will take his situation day by day and when he crosses those thresholds we've been talking about we'll give him a chance to practice and play."

*** Friday Update *** RB DeMarco Murray (TEN) said there will be no animosity between himself and Felix Jones with the duo expected to share carries in the backfield. "Me and Felix have a great relationship, so there definitely won't be any animosity between us," Murray said. "But it really doesn't matter who starts the game, it's all about just working hard throughout the game and getting the W at the end of the day."

RB DeMarco Murray (TEN) Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday, Nov. 15, that DeMarco Murray will likely receive the bulk of the carries once Felix Jones (ankle) returns. Jones is expected to return in Week 11. "One thing that comes to my mind that Murray looks like the more he carries the more effective he gets. If you think of that theoretically about a workhorse running back that they get better as the game goes along," Jones said. "Felix, and this is not negative in any way, Felix has always been a guy that he looks like the best way for him to be his best is to inject him in spots and so we may have a guy here in Murray who can carry a lot of carries and we may have a guy in Felix that can step in there and carry it 13 times a ballgame and really have a chance to break it."

RB Matt Jones (WAS) may continue to be a healthy scratch as the team prefers a back that can perform on special teams, which Jones has not done. "We're not giving up on Matt," head coach Jay Gruden said. "But when you can only dress three running backs, the third one we would like to have some impact on special teams. That's not always going to be the case. Sometimes we may not need our third running back to be on special teams, we can get Matt up."

It was the first time he has done that since breaking his forearm Sept. 24. He has been being careful with his injury, since there might be more football left beyond Week 17.

That's just my personality," Burleson said. "The way the way is playing there is an ease in my spirit that I don't have to rush it."

"Me going from being able to run the wildcat, to playing receiver last season and catching 41 passes and four touchdowns to nothing - I can't believe it," Cribbs said. "By me not playing, I feel like they think I'm not good, that I've lost it. But I haven't. I feel when I'm out there I can contribute, but I'm not able to." Head coach Pat Shurmur believes Cribbs' return numbers are up this year and coverage units are better because he's focusing on special teams. Cribbs already has four kickoff returns of 40-yards or more this season.

WR Early Doucet (FA) will likely be the odd-man out with Michael Floyd expected to become a bigger part of the offense in the second half of the season. Andre Roberts will likely line up opposite Larry Fitzgerald in the team's two-receiver sets, but Floyd is a prototypical outside receiver in three-wide sets.

"We have taken those plays for granted ever since I've been here that we're normally going to get two or three deep shots, and when we get them and we get them set up, they're normally touchdowns.

"I'm not 100 percent. But I've played at 60 percent before and was effective. I've played at 45 percent and was effective. So I was ready to play but it wasn't in the best interests of the guys who were a 100 percent. Terrance Copper was a 100 percent. Devery Henderson was 100 percent, and I wasn't. "I think it was a good decision that HC Sean Payton made to have me not play." Payton said Horn's status will be determined later this week. Horn practiced Wednesday and both the receiver and Payton anticipate the Saints' all-time leading pass-catcher will be on the Louisiana Superdome turf on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. "In Joe's case, hopefully we pick right up where he left off and get him back in the flow of things," Payton said. "It will be good to have him back, because he is someone who has made plays for us.

*** Friday Update *** WR Santana Moss (FA) practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this weekend. Wearing a shoe that was altered to limit the discomfort, Moss said he will play Sunday in Dallas. "It was cold out there but once I got warmed up, I ran around pretty good," Moss said outside the Redskins' weight room. "I know it's going to be bruised and it will take time and there will be soreness but it felt good enough to run on it...from doing what I did today, I should play."

*** Thursday Update *** WR Santana Moss (FA) did not practice on Thursday.

*** Wednesday Update *** WR Santana Moss (FA) did not practice on Wednesday.

*** Saturday Update *** WR Santana Moss (FA) is officially listed as doubtful and will be a game time decision but the team isn't expecting him to be able to play. Antwaan Randle El would be the guy that would likely benefit if Moss can't go.

*** Friday Update *** WR Santana Moss (FA) sat out practice for the third consecutive day on Friday and was downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Moss has been slowed by a hamstring injury in recent weeks. HC Joe Gibbs said Moss's availability would likely be a game time decision. "There's some slight hope and we'll hold out and see how he feels on game day, but we'll have to make a decision on that at the last second," Gibbs said. Moss sat out the Redskins' Week 9 game against Dallas but returned last week against Philadelphia. He caught three passes for 17 yards but admitted after the game he wasn't able to play at full speed. "I didn't make (the hamstring injury) worse, but it's just not getting better, so why should I keep doing something to it?" Moss said on Friday. "I have to make sure that I can be myself. Last week I wasn't myself and I don't want to be out there if I can't do that." ESPN reports that Moss (hamstring) has ruled himself out, but the team has yet to officially announce he is out this week. If Moss cannot play on Sunday, then Brandon Lloyd and Antwaan Randle El would likely start against the Buccaneers, with James Thrash coming in as the third wide receiver.

*** Wednesday Update *** WR Santana Moss (FA) is hurting. He has been fighting a strained left hamstring since Oct. 22. Moss missed practice much of last week but on Friday was upgraded to probable and played in Sunday's 27-3 loss to Philadelphia. "I'm sore. I'm sore, frustrated, all of the above. Put it like that," Moss said. "You have A, B and C, and I'm all of that." On Sunday, Moss did not run any of his signature wide receiver screens or slot screens, plays that maximize his ability to quickly change direction. He was severely limited to running crossing routes and finished with three catches for 17 yards.

*** Saturday Update *** WR Sinorice Moss (FA) has played in just one game this season because of a strained quad muscle that simply won't go away. He's suffered relapses so often that the Giants are now being extremely cautious with him. After getting through a second straight week of constant, albeit limited, participation during practice, there finally is some light at the end of Moss' long injury tunnel. It doesn't look as if he'll return for Monday night's game in Jacksonville, he remains listed as questionable, but he may be ready to play next week in Tennessee.

*** Thursday Update *** WR Sinorice Moss (FA) practiced on Thursday but remains questionable for this weekend. HC Tom Coughlin had some comments on Moss (who has played only once this season). "He is going to have more extensive work this week," Coughlin said. "He will have more reps and more opportunities - building his confidence as well as the ability to evaluate him the next day to see that he is coming along. So that will be extended."

*** Wednesday Update *** WR Muhsin Muhammad (FA) Charles Chandler, of the Charlotte Observer, reports Muhsin Muhammad is still far from ready to talk about retirement, even though he is 36 years old. Muhammad said, "I think I still have some good, good years of football in me. You get what you get with me. I'm going to be a great blocker. I'm going to catch some tough balls. I'm going to make some big plays here and there, and just go out and play with a lot of fun and enthusiasm." Muhammad said he plans to continue playing "until the wheels fall off." He added, "I'll just let my body and probably management or teams tell me when it's time to quit. If you can do it, do it. If not, then it's time to hang it up."

*** Wednesday Update *** WR Ben Obomanu (FA) has earned a starting job, according to Mike Sando of ESPN.com. He will take Deon Butler's spot.

*** Friday Update *** WR Terrell Owens (FA) responded to critics who said that he did not give full effort in the team's Week 10 game, according to Kevin Goheen, of The Cincinnati Enquirer. "People that say I have a lack of effort, they can go pound sand," Owens said. "There's nothing that's been a lack of effort on my part. For someone to say that, then they don't know me very well. I take offense to it because that's not how I play." The Week 10 plays most at question were a deep sideline route in which QB Carson Palmer's pass fell incomplete and an interception across the middle that Owens admitted to not pursuing hard enough. Both plays occurred in the fourth quarter. The Bengals defended Owens. Dan Dierdorf, the CBS game analyst, was one of those who questioned Owens' effort on the plays. "It bothers me," head coach Marvin Lewis said. "If we had Dan Dierdorf next time around, I would ask him why. Half of them don't know the game much anymore. It's a difficult thing to do."

*** Thursday Update *** WR Terrell Owens (FA) and Tony Romo worked during the bye-week to get in better sync with each other. Neither player would comment in depth, but each confirmed they worked on a few different things lately. "We're looking forward to it," Owens said. "He's a lot healthier than he was last week. He's throwing the ball better. He's taking snaps. Obviously he's feeling better. We need to win, so we have to make sure these practices count."

*** Saturday Update *** WR Rueben Randle (FA) Giants wide receivers coach Kevin Gilbride said he likes how Rueben Randle developed this season and how he has picked up the offense. "I'd say he has a grasp of understanding the offense, understanding techniques and then actually getting on the field and executing it," Gilbride said. "He's just made steps in the right direction. He's not where he needs to be, but he's getting there. Then hopefully down the stretch run, he can really be a factor helping our team."

WR DaRick Rogers (FA) Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Da'Rick Rogers could work himself into a prominent role in the offense for the rest of the season. "You've got a talented football player," Pagano said, citing Rogers' size, speed and big-play ability. "Now we are going to give him an opportunity because he's earned it." Rogers has apparently learned the system quickly. Rogers could push Griff Whalen and LaVon Brazill for the No. 3 wideout job.

*** Saturday Update *** WR Jerome Simpson (FA) Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has not yet spelled out the plan publicly, but he has hinted this week that Cordarrelle Patterson could start Sunday, Nov. 17, at the Seattle Seahawks ahead of Jerome Simpson, who was charged with drunken driving. "They drafted me to play, not ride the bench every snap," Patterson said. "If I start, I start. If I don't, I don't. I'm behind a great guy in Jerome Simpson. Me and him compete with each other just to get better."

*** Wednesday Update *** WR Jerome Simpson (FA) has been charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated as well as refusing a blood test in connection to his arrest last week. Simpson faces up to 90 days in jail for the DWI charge and up to one year in jail for the refusing a blood test charge. Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier was still not ready to say definitely, whether Jerome Simpson would be available in Week 11. "We'll have further clarification as we learn more from the league as well as what we're going to do internally," Frazier said Tuesday, Nov. 12. "But from my standpoint there isn't a whole lot more I can add regarding his situation as we are continuing to gather more information."

WR Jerome Simpson (FA) is participating in practice Monday, Nov. 11. Simpson was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated Saturday, Nov. 09. Simpson apologized to his teammates for the negative attention he brought to the team over his arrest, but could not comment further on the situation.

WR Roddy White (FA) The Falcons plan to monitor Roddy White's workload for the remainder of the season, and head coach Mike Smith said White was capped out at 55 of the team's 58 offensive snaps in Week 10. He had only one catch for 20 yards and was thrown to four times. Smith doesn't plan on another receiver taking White's role as the No. 1 receiver unless he suffers a setback. However, Smith hinted that the limited snaps for White would at least carry over into Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I think when you start talking about 55 plays, an average game is usually somewhere between 65 and 70," Smith said. "I think Roddy will play as many plays as we can possible give him. That (55) was on the upper limit, by the way, in terms of the number of snaps that we anticipated him playing." White said he felt fine after the game.

WR Roddy White (FA) was not ready to give the New Orleans Saints too much credit for their Week 10 win. "It's not like they came out here and won a game," White said. "I think we kind of gave it to them. We play them in three weeks and we'll be ready."

WR Greg Jennings (MIA) is feeling much better and wants to return to the team soon, however, his doctor has different plans. Jennings is pain-free and has a timetable in mind to return, but he's not sharing it with anyone just yet. The plan was for Jennings to run at full speed three weeks after undergoing surgery Nov. 1. "It's like a little kid you let taste a piece of candy," Jennings said. "Now you try to feed him vegetables again, it's not really going to happen. They've experienced the candy, they want candy. I've experienced working out, now it's like, 'Just let me go.'" Good sign here for Jennings, but he's still not close to returning. We think it's a risky proposition to hang onto Jennings hoping he can help you in the fantasy playoffs. He may not be ready until the final few weeks of the season at the earliest.

*** Thursday Update *** WR Steve Breaston (NO) was inactive for the team's Week 10 game, and head coach Romeo Crennel said that is because the team wants to take a look at other players. "What happened a little bit is that he hasn't made as many plays," Crennel said.

Rookie WR Devon Wylie took Breaston's place; however, he played six snaps and was not targeted on a pass. Crennel said there are other issues as well regarding Breaston. "He's a veteran player, and some young guys might have a little more quickness and a little bit more speed. And if you as a coach want to take a look at that speed, you have to make a move.

Today it does," he said when asked on Monday if it was the worst it has been. "Today is probably the worst it's felt. I don't really think it is going to get better. It's just something I'm going to have to deal with for a while. I'll be glad when it's all over so I can rest it and get it back to healthy."

"The guy has good hands, he makes a lot of catches like the receivers," Burress said. "He sits outside and breaks on the football; he doesn't drop a lot of picks, so if he gets his hands on it he usually catches 'em." Mathis plays left cornerback, meaning he will line up across from Burress whenever the Giants have their top receiver on the right side of the field.

"I don't think it was the wrong play. But just the whole thing leading up to it," Johnson said, noting that he, WR Donald Jones, and TE Scott Chandler were more familiar at running the route. "We had people in positions where maybe they shouldn't have been. So who knows what would've happened if it was Donald, me or Scott there.

*** Friday Update *** WR James Jones (SD) doesn't have a single dropped pass this season. He says his penchant for dropping passes during the 2010 season likely cost him a hefty payday on the open market. Other teams told him they didn't want to sign him because of his dropped passes.

"I might want to look forward to moving somewhere else next year to have another start and really feel good about going out here and playing football." Moss dropped this latest bombshell three hours or so before the Raiders boarded a plane for Kansas City. Moss still has two years left on his contract. He joined the Raiders in a trade that cost the Raiders the rights to the No. 7 pick and a seventh-round selection in the 2005 NFL draft, as well as middle linebacker Napoleon Harris. The Raiders would have to trade Moss after the season or release him at any time for him to play elsewhere. Releasing Moss wouldn't require a significant salary-cap hit.

WR Randy Moss (SF) has commented on how his season is going and his inability to produce more. "Maybe because I'm unhappy, and I'm not too much excited about what's going on, so my concentration and focus level tends to go down when I'm in a bad mood," Moss said Monday. "So all I can say is, if you put me in a good situation and make me happy, man, you get good results." HC Art Shell said he "hates" to hear comments like that. "You're paid to play a game that you've played for many years and that you love and once you hit the field, you compete," Shell said. "That's the way I see it."

WR Kenny Britt (STL) Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Monday, Nov. 12, that the team plans to find more ways during the bye week to get Kenny Britt more involved in the offense.

*** Friday Update *** WR Brian Quick (STL) Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said the team will look to get Brian Quick more involved down the stretch. Quick has been limited to a handful of plays at wide receiver each week, but he's becoming more comfortable in a special teams role as the season progresses. Quick saw more action with Chris Givens disciplined last week, and he's learning to react more in his routes instead of thinking his way through them. Quick's touchdown play last week has given him the needed confidence moving forward.

*** Thursday Update *** WR Vincent Jackson (TB) addressed Wednesday, Nov. 16, a controversial Week 10 play in which he apparently made no effort to catch a deep pass intended for him in the end zone. The pass was intercepted and led to the team's loss to the Oakland Raiders. Jackson said he never saw the pass. "Obviously not," Jackson said. "I was looking for it. Obviously, in that game, I still felt I could track the ball pretty well at night. But I never saw it go up. We can't tell what's going on with the quarterback back there. Usually you can see the ball and go up and get it. There was a little confusion there, but I never saw it."

WR Vincent Jackson (TB) continues to ignore the media, refusing to explain what happened on a pass intender for him in the end zone in Week 10 which ended up getting picked off. He has left it to head coach Norv Turner to explain Jackson didn't see the ball coming his way. Our view is that Jackson seemed to lose Philip Rivers trust on that play. It will be interesting to see if that carries over to this week's game vs. the Bears.

I'm concentrating on just trying to make sure my technique and the depth of my routes are the same as when I left. You tend to do things faster because you're so anxious to make a play, but at the same time, you don't want to do anything crazy to hurt your team."

*** Friday Update *** TE Tony Gonzalez (ATL) After declaring on Monday that Gonzalez wouldn’t play Sunday against the Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium, HC Herman Edwards backed off slightly, saying there is a slim chance. Gonzalez didn’t practice again Thursday, and Edwards didn’t hold out much hope. “If we do that, we’re going to have to sit somebody else down,” Edwards said. “If he gets nicked, then all of a sudden he’s down and you’ve lost two guys. That’s always hard. You’ve got to make sure he can make it through the game.” However, Gonzalez did not practice on Friday and is still listed as doubtful.

TE/FB Kris Wilson has played the position, but he’s now occupied at fullback. Wilson, WR Dante Hall, RB Michael Bennett or WR Rod Gardner could get more playing time.

*** Saturday Update *** TE Ben Patrick (FA) HC Ken Whisenhunt put his four tight ends on notice earlier this week, saying all of them would compete to be among the active players Sunday in Seattle. He reiterated that challenge on Thursday when asked how long it would take Leonard Pope and Ben Patrick to get back into a rhythm after missing time with injuries. "Hopefully, the stress this week of practice will help do that because it's been a little bit more tense on the practice field with that group," Whisenhunt said. Whisenhunt was asked in what context he meant "tense?" "Usually in the same context you always mean tense,” he replied. “It was a little uncomfortable. Why? Because they're competing for who is going to play." Not having healthy tight ends, or ones who are playing well, took a portion of the playbook away, Whisenhunt explained, and he's clearly anxious for that to end. "Every week we've planned on having tight ends,” he added. “It just seems like they haven't been 100 percent healthy. Hopefully, this week we'll be able to incorporate some of those plays we haven't been able to use."

*** Saturday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) did not practice on Saturday and is officially listed as questionable to play this weekend. He was unable to participate with the team in practice Saturday but did some light running. Gates is clearly a tough player but this injury is troublesome. He'll likely test his foot in pre game warmups to see if he's able to go although with it being Monday night, it's a definite risk. If we had to put a number on it, we'd say there's about a 35% chance that he plays.

*** Friday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) did not practice on Friday. It's looking like he may not be able to play this week although it'll be a game time decision.

*** Thursday Update *** TE Antonio Gates (SD) did not practice on Thursday. “I've never had to be 100 percent to play," Gates said.

I've got a ways to go ... At this point, I'm trying to give myself a chance to play.”

Doctors initially indicated Gates could possibly be comfortable enough to resume practicing two weeks after suffering the injury Oct. 24.

“It's a tear,” Gates said. “It's brutal. It's painful ... This is probably as frustrated as I've been in my career based on the recovery time."

According to ESPN Stats & Information, four tight ends caught a combined 28 passes for 339 yards, three touchdowns and 18 first downs with Lamur on the field. Lamur has faced the likes of Dennis Pitta, Delanie Walker, Rob Gronkowski, and Greg Olsen this year.

"That's all I can do right now without getting fined," Owens said. "Maybe I can get the crowd involved and they can follow suit. Right now I'm trying to be focused and trying to play better for the team and play better for my team."
