Report: Darren Sproles 'appears likely to play'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:22 am ET) Eagles running back Darren Sproles "appears likely to play" Sunday at Arizona after suffering a sprained MCL in Week 6, reports CSNPhilly.com. Sproles rested over the bye and returned to a limited practice Tuesday.

"The way I'm feeling, yeah," Sproles answered when asked if he'd play Sunday. But the real test will come Wednesday and Thursday at practice, when the Eagles will do more than the light session they had Tuesday.

Sproles was in full pads at the start of Wednesday's practice.


Julio Jones shouldering the blame
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Falcons wideout Julio Jones has gone four straight games without a touchdown, and he's failed to clear 70 receiving yards in the last two. Jones, who has dropped five passes, pointed to himself as the problem.

"It starts with me," he said on NFL Network. "I got to go out there and make plays when they are presented to me. I got to go out and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat.

"We are out there misreading or dropping balls. We have to fix that. It's nothing that the defense is doing; we have to fix that here."

Atlanta plays the Lions in London on Sunday.


Texans backing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for now
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Texans coach Bill O'Brien is still backing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick following Monday's loss at Pittsburgh that dropped the team to 3-4.

“Fitzy is our quarterback,” O'Brien said Tuesday, per The Houston Chronicle.

However, for the first time since Ryan Mallett joined the team just before the start of the regular season, O'Brien linked both of the quarterbacks leading up to Week 8 at Tennessee.

"We’re going to continue to work with both of these guys in practice, and we’ll see how it improves," O’Brien said. "And hopefully, it will get better and better, and that will help our offense get better."

The Texans have lost three straight games. Still, O'Brien isn't about to pin all the struggles on Fitzpatrick.

"When you look at our tape … you cannot just point to one position and say that’s the position that is at fault," O’Brien said. "There are a lot of positions that need to play better. We need to coach better, all those different things. It all goes into why sometimes we stall offensively. It’s not one guy."


Ball security a focus for Giants TE Larry Donnell
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:01 am ET) The Giants are stressing ball security with breakout tight end Larry Donnell, who lost two fumbles in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss at Dallas. "It's one of those things we preach on a daily basis, whether it be technique or focus on the football," tight ends coach Kevin M. Gilbride told The Star-Ledger.

"And that's something he knows he needs to improve on. He knows it hurt our football team."

Donnell has lost three fumbles in seven games this season. The Giants are on a bye this week.


Steelers WR Antonio Brown not happy with overturned TD
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown took to Twitter to express his frustration after officials overturned his 16-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter Monday against the Texans. The officals ruled his left foot touched the white boundary stripe.

Brown tweeted a photo that appeared to show both of his feet were inbounds. Brown posted a "derogatory remark" with the photo, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Brown said he doesn't regret making the comment and will accept any punishment the NFL might hand out.

"When you’re passionate about something, you speak your mind," Brown said Tuesday night on his radio show on 970 ESPN. “Touchdowns are hard to come by in the NFL. That would have given us a two-touchdown lead and made it harder for [the Texans]."


Giants WR Corey Washington still learning route tree
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Giants receiver Corey Washington caught a touchdown pass in four straight preseason games. But even with the team losing Victor Cruz for the season, Washington was inactive Week 7 and has yet to make a regular-season catch.

"He's learning to run an entire route tree," receivers coach Sean Ryan told The Star-Ledger. "There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his top of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on. That is where he is right now. He's a work in progress."


Titans' Bernard Pollard confident in quick recovery from Achilles injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:48 am ET) Titans safety Bernard Pollard was given a 6-8 month timetable for his recovery after undergoing surgery in early October for a ruptured Achilles. Though, Pollard expects a shorter timetable, per The Tennessean.

"Like I've told them, it's not going to take me six-to-eight. It's really not," Pollard said Tuesday. "More like two-to-three (months) … I want to be back. I want to be smart about coming back as well. I throw numbers out there or whatever, but it's going to be quick."


Dolphins punter Brandon Fields not having a strong season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:40 am ET) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is not hiding his disappointment with punter Brandon Fields, whose 43.3 gross average on punts ranks 31st out of 32 punters in the NFL, according to The Miami Herald. His net average is 31.8, which is the worst in the NFL.

"Early on we got the punt blocked in Buffalo," Philbin said. "He just hasn’t looked as comfortable quite yet back there, as he has in the two years that I’ve been here, the previous two years. I’m confident he’ll work his way through it and he’ll get back to being the outstanding punter that we all know.

"For his standards, it’s not quite what we’re used to. I think he would acknowledge that, but I’m very, very confident that he’ll get back to that soon."


Philbin calls out Caleb Sturgis during team meeting for missing FGs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said he called out kicker Caleb Sturgis during a team meeting for missing a pair of field goals during a win Week 7 at Chicago, according to The Miami Herald.

"We were in the team meeting today and we said we’ve got to make those field goals," Philbin said. "We kind of went through that sequence where we took a sack and knocked ourselves back, and made the field goal more difficult. That being said, I said to him right there in the whole team meeting, we’ve got to make those field goals. He knows that and I suspect that he will work at it and he’ll get better at it."

Sturgis is connecting on 78.6 percent of his field goals (11 of 14) after converting at a 76.5 percent rate (26 of 34) as a rookie in 2013.


Falcons WR Harry Douglas misses 10th straight practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:22 am ET) Falcons wideout Harry Douglas, who's missed four straight games with a foot injury, did not practice Wednesday as the team prepared for Sunday's game in London against the Lions. It was Douglas' 10th straight missed practice.

Douglas did a rehab run on the side during practice.
