by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:54 pm ET) Despite participating in Thursday practice, Packers defensive end Datone Jones has been ruled out for the Sunday night game at New Orleans. It will be his third consecutive absence from game action with a sprained ankle.

Green Bay coaches felt he wasn't quite ready after watching film of his individual work at the Thursday session, per the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:52 pm ET) Titans running back Shonn Greene was officially ruled probable for Week 8 against Houston after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury, the Tennessean reports. Greene has 44 carries for 190 yards and a touchdown this season. Bishop Sankey started while Green was sidelined, so it remains uncertain how coach Ken Whisenhunt will use both backs Sunday.

Report: Redskins not ruling out Monday return of QB Griffin III
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:49 pm ET) Jay Gruden is apparently still holding out hope that starting quarterback Robert Griffin III can play Monday night for the Redskins against Dallas, per the team website, which is reporting that the coach will not make a decision until that day.

Griffin, who watched backup Colt McCoy perform well in the Week 7 defeat of Tennessee, also did not rule out the possibility of being active. He has been sidelined since early in Week 2 with a dislocated ankle.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:47 pm ET) The Ravens will turn to tight end Crockett Gillmore to start in place of Owen Daniels (knee) in Week 8 at Cincinnati, per the Baltimore Sun. The rookie out of Colorado State has only caught three passes for 29 yards this season.

"He's ready to go," Harbaugh said.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:40 pm ET) After missing another week of practice, Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was officially ruled as doubtful for Week 8 against Baltimore, per the team's official website. Green could be in danger of missing his third consecutive game due to a nagging toe injury. He hasn't been able to practice since aggravating the injury on Oct. 8. 

Week 8 status for Buccaneers QB Josh McCown still unclear
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:36 pm ET) Buccaneers deposed starting quarterback Josh McCown has stated that his injured thumb has improved, but declined to predict whether he'll be active for Sunday's game against Minnesota, per the Tampa Bay Times. He will back up Mike Glennon if he is available.

McCown, who added that the call would be made by Lovie Smith, has not played since Week 4. An announcement regarding his status for Week 8 has been expected but has yet to come.
