Player News
Buccaneers RB Doug Martin out of boot and out of practice
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:13 pm ET) Buccaneers running back Doug Martin has shed the walking boot, but remains absent from practice Thursday, per the Tampa Bay Times.

Martin has been dealing with a sprained left ankle.


Browns TE Jordan Cameron again sidelined Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:10 pm ET) The likelihood of Browns tight end Jordan Cameron playing in Week 9 against Tampa Bay took another hit Thursday when he was again absent from practice.

Cameron sustained his third concussion in just over two years Sunday against Oakland. He is going through league-mandated concussion protocol before he is allowed to return.


Ravens RB Justin Forsett back on practice field Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:57 pm ET) The minor ankle injury that had Ravens featured back Justin Forsett sidelined Wednesday did not keep him out of practice Thursday.

Barring a setback, he appears set to play Sunday at Pittsburgh. He is on pace to rush for 1,142 yards and six touchdowns this season.


Toe issue has Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson out Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:53 pm ET) Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, who needs just one more sack to break his single-season record of 3 1/2, is sidelined from practice Thursday with a toe ailment.

There is no indication the issue is serious and he's expected to play Monday night against the host Giants.


Coach: Colts WR Wayne healthy enough to practice Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:41 pm ET) Chuck Pagano revealed that the absence of veteran wideout Reggie Wayne from Thursday practice was merely to provide rest and that he could have participated otherwise, per the Anderson Herald Bulletin.

Wayne missed the Wednesday session with an elbow ailment that prevented him from playing in Week 8 at Pittsburgh. Barring a setback, he should receive the green light for action on Monday night against the Giants.


Gruden: Redskins QB Griffin set to start Sunday if no setbacks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:36 pm ET) Jay Gruden has confirmed that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday at Minnesota if there are no setbacks heading into the game.

"Everything looks good so far," Gruden told ESPN.

Griffin has been deemed fully recovered from a dislocated ankle sustained in Week 2. Gruden added that he only needs to see that Griffin is decisive and has good footwork in practice before a final decision is made.


Bengals RB Giovani Bernard misses another practice
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:11 pm ET) Bengals running back Giovani Bernard was absent from practice again Thursday, according to the team's official website. The NFL injury report only lists Bernard with a hip injury, but it was reported Wednesday he also has a shoulder injury.

The Bengals are preparing to face the Jaguars in Week 9. Jeremy Hill is expected to start if Bernard is unavailable.


Jets QB Geno Smith (shoulder) able to throw Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1:01 pm ET) Jets quarterback Geno Smith (shoulder) resumed throwing Thursday after not doing so in practice Wednesday, according to ESPN. Though, it's still uncertain if Smith will be able to serve as the backup quarterback Week 9 against the Chiefs.

Reggie Wayne, Erik Walden sit out practice Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:48 pm ET) Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne (elbow) and linebacker Erik Walden (hip) were absent from practice Thursday, according to The Indianapolis Star. The Colts will face the Giants Monday.

Report: Chargers CB Verrett sidelined at least two weeks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:48 pm ET) A torn labrum will keep Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett sidelined 2-3 weeks, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, who is also reporting that he is hoping to play through it and could opt for surgery after the season.

Verrett has already missed two games this season with the shoulder issue.
