Player News
Pierre Garcon hoping return of RG3 proves helpful
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:29 pm ET) The Redskins are likely to turn the reins of the offense back over to Robert Griffin III in Week 9 against the Vikings, and that should be a good thing for Pierre Garcon's Fantasy value moving forward.

Garcon averaged 78.2 yards per game in Griffin's 13 starts last season, 63.3 in Griffin's rookie year and had 77 yards on 10 receptions in Griffin's lone full game this season. In comparison, Garcon has averaged just 52.3 yards per game in seven games without Griffin this season, and was targeted just 10 times in two games with Colt McCoy at the helm, including just four times last week.

Griffin's return should not be viewed as a panacea for Garcon's flagging Fantasy value, but his return should settle things down for Washington's passing game. Griffin is, at the very least, a better passer than McCoy and his presence should open things up for the passing game. This isn't a great matchup for Garcon, but we should at least get to see the Redskins' passing game at full strength for the first time since Week 2. Keep an eye on the rapport between the duo to see if Garcon might be in line for a big second half.

Luke Joeckel among notable Jaguars ruled probable for Week 9

Chargers' Ryan Mathews practices for first time since MCL sprain
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3:11 pm ET) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews was a limited participant in Friday's practice. It was his first practice since suffering an MCL sprain on Sept. 14.

The Chargers have a Week 10 bye and Mathews could be back as early as Week 11 against Oakland.
