Raiders CB D.J. Hayden could be activated before Sunday's game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:22 pm ET) Raiders coach Tony Sparano told reporters Friday that D.J. Hayden is "good to go," but would not commit to whether the cornerback will be activated off the Physically Unable to Perform List in time for Week 8 against the Browns, ESPN reports. The team is expected to place Usama Young and LaMarr Woodley on the season-ending injured reserve list, which would open a spot for Hayden.

The Raiders have 12 days remaining to activate Hayden, or else he lands on the injured reserve list.


Raiders will place Usama Young, LaMarr Woodley on IR
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:11 pm ET) Raiders safety Usama Young and defensive end LaMarr Woodley will likely be placed on season-ending injured reserve list, Tony Sparano told the Bay Area News Group on Friday. Young suffered a torn ACL and MCL and Woodley suffered a torn bicep Week 8 against Arizona.

Saints RB Mark Ingram: 'I've got to step up' for my teammates
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:59 pm ET) Saints lead back Mark Ingram wants to return the favor to the backfield mates that carried the load when he missed three games with a broken hand by performing well with them out.

Ingram has been thrust back into the featured back role for Sunday night against Green Bay with injuries sidelining Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson.

"A couple guys are down, so I've got to step up and pull my weight and do my job," Ingram told the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Ingram certainly pulled his weight before his injury. He rushed for 143 yards on 6.0 YPC with three touchdowns in the first two games. But he managed just 16 yards on 10 attempts at Detroit in Week 7.


Patriots add LB Davis, WR Krause to practice squad
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:52 pm ET) The Patriots announced a pair of minor roster moves Friday. The team re-signed linebacker Ja'Gared Davis to the practice squad and signed rookie wide receiver Jonathan Krause to the practice squad, per the team's official website.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor all but cleared for Week 8
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:44 pm ET) Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor has been deemed probable for the Week 8 game at Carolina despite an ankle issue. He practiced in full Thursday and Friday after not participating Wednesday.

Chancellor has started in every game this season and has registered 44 tackles.


Report: Bills DB Aaron Williams expected to play Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET) Barring any setbacks over the weekend, Bills defensive back Aaron Williams is expected to play Week 8 against the Jets at MetLife Stadium, according to WGR. Williams was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a neck injury.

Seahawks injury report for Sunday designates seven as out
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:40 pm ET) The lengthy injury report released by the Seahawks on Friday for the Sunday game at Carolina has only ruled-out players and probables.

There are no surprises in either designation. All those who are out did not practice this week. That group consists of fullback Derrick Coleman (foot), defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf), tight end Zach Miller (ankle), center Max Unger (foot), linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe) and wideout Bryan Walters (concussion).

The probables are defensive end Michael Bennett (toe), strong safety Kam Chancellor (ankle), cornerback Tharold Simon (ankle), running back Robert Turbin (shoulder) and tight end Luke Willson (groin).


Four Saints receive red light for Week 8 game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:23 pm ET) Running backs Pierre Thomas (rib/shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) are only two of four Saints ruled out for the Sunday game against the Packers. The others are linebacker Kyle Knox (ankle) and center Jonathan Goodwin (knee/ankle).

Listed as questionable probable are defensive back Keenan Lewis (knee/shoulder), linebacker Ramon Humber (ankle), tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder) and nose tackle Brodrick Bunkley (concussion). The lone probable is defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring).


Report: Saints TE Graham likely to play Sunday despite injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5:14 pm ET) Saints prolific tight end Jimmy Graham has been deemed questionable for the Sunday night game against Green Bay with a shoulder problem, but seems likely to play after practicing on a limited basis, according to ESPN.

Graham played 30 snaps despite the physical issue in Week 7 against Detroit, but was held without a catch.


Colts WR Hakeem Nicks expected to see more targets Week 8
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:13 pm ET) With Reggie Wayne ruled out with an elbow injury, Colts wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is expected to have an increased role on offense Sunday against Pittsburgh, according to ESPN. Nicks has gotten off to a slow start, with 17 catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns as the No. 3 receiver. He was targeted only once and was held without a grab in Week 7 against Cincinnati.

"I look forward to every opportunity," Nicks said. "Each week I prepare accordingly, prepare like I’m going to play, just like I’m going to play this week. Just have to go out there and play within the offense and everything will be good."
