Player News
Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones eligible to practice Nov. 3
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:13 pm ET) Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones could return to practice as early as Nov. 3, the team is reporting. He has been sidelined since undergoing wrist surgery and was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list.

Jones cannot return to game action until Nov. 17 against Tennessee. He played in the first three games of the season and registered two sacks.


Emmanuel Sanders becoming a red-zone factor?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:11 pm ET) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was already off to the best start of his career before Thursday's game, but he put it all together in Week 8's win over the Chargers.

Sanders snagged his fourth 100-yard receiving game in seven tries Thursday, and was finally able to combine that with a touchdown. Three, in fact, as Peyton Manning looked his way constantly in the red zone, including two touchdowns within the 5-yard line. That is good news for Sanders' long-term value, assuming it can remain a consistent part of the team's game.

The main difference between Sanders and the man he replaced in Denver, Eric Decker, has been red-zone proficiency. Decker hauled in 24 touchdowns over two season with Peyton Manning, a pace Sanders can't hope to compete with. However, he is also already on pace for more than 1,400 yards, so he just needs to become a passable red-zone target to be an elite Fantasy option.

Peyton Manning loves to spread the ball around in the red zone, so don't expect Sanders to come anywhere close to three touchdowns in a game at any point again this season. Still, with how big a part of the offense he is overall, Fantasy owners have to be thrilled that Manning finally started looking Sanders' way in the red zone. 


Ravens TE Daniels red-lighted again from Friday practice
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:00 pm ET) A knee ailment has again prevented Ravens tight end Owen Daniels from practicing Friday, per the Baltimore Sun. He has yet to participate in any session this week, though offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak has claimed Daniels to be fine.

Daniels still appears likely to play Sunday against Cincinnati.


Report: Colts RB Trent Richardson absent again Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:55 am ET) Colts running back Trent Richardson remained sidelined from the media availability portion of Friday practice with a hamstring issue, according to the Indianapolis Star. His status for the Sunday game against Pittsburgh therefore becomes more in doubt.

Richardson is coming off one of his best games since joining the Colts early last season. He rushed for 77 yards on a season-best 5.5 YPC and added four receptions for 41 yards in the thumping of Cincinnati.


All designations included as Lions issue Friday injury report
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:49 am ET) The injury report released Friday by the Lions for the Week 8 game against Atlanta runs the gamut - two out, two doubtful, two questionable, two probable.

Ruled out are tight ends Joseph Fauria (ankle) and Eric Ebron (hamstring). Running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) are doubtul. Star wideout Calvin Johnson (ankle) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) are questionable while defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (toe) and running back Theo Riddick (hamstring) are probable.


Report: Panthers RB Chris Ogbonnaya carted off Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:37 am ET) Panthers backup running back Chris Ogbonnaya was carted off the field from practice Friday, the Charlotte Observer has reported. The injury and its severity have yet to be announced.

Redskins RB Alfred Morris blames self for poor ground game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:32 am ET) Redskins featured back Alfred Morris is blaming the man he sees in the mirror for the rushing woes that have plagued his team in recent weeks.

The Redskins led the NFL in rushing in 2012 and ranked fifth last season despite their 3-13 record, greatly due to Morris, who totaled more yards on the ground than anyone in the league not named Adrian Peterson the last two years. But Washington sits 21st this season in rushing yards and 20th in YPC. Morris has just 187 yards rushing in the last four games combined.

In studying his subpar performance Sunday against Tennessee, he noticed minor differences in the path he takes while carrying the ball, the Washington Times is reporting. He claims it's too close to the line of scrimmage, thereby limiting cutback opportunities and preventing his offensive linemen from effectively setting up their blocks.

"I can't really read it out like I'm supposed to," he said. "You think it's nothing, like, 'Oh, it's just a tight track.' But when you really look at it, especially after watching last week's film, it was like, 'Man. Geez. If my track was just a little wider, I could've pressed that more and set that block up a little better so I can get downhill.' It's little things like that. They make a huge difference."


Falcons in good shape as they prepare for Lions
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:21 am ET) The Falcons are fairly healthy heading into their Sunday game against Detroit. Only defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (foot) appears destined to sit despite his status as questionable. Also questionable is wide receiver Harry Douglas (foot).

The probables are left guard Justin Blalock (back), wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle) and linebacker Prince Shembo (knee). All three were limited in practice Friday.


Rams SS McDonald says he's fine after sustaining concussion
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:17 am ET) Rams starting strong safety T.J. McDonald had declared himself "fine" after sitting out Wednesday practice as part of concussion protocol and returning to the field Thursday on a limited basis, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

McDonald has not missed a snap this season and appears all but set to play in Week 8 at Kansas City. He has contributed to 38 tackles.


Bengals WR A.J. Green: I could still play Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:10 am ET) Prolific Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green does not believe his non-participation in Friday practice dooms him to miss Sunday's game against Baltimore. He is claiming he could still play, the team website has reported.

Green, who vowed to play after the Bengals were blanked 27-0 Week 7 at Indianapolis, has been sidelined the last two games with a nagging toe injury.
