Sammy Watkins among Bills players green-lighted for Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:30 pm ET) As expected, the Bills have officially ruled Fred Jackson (groin) and Ty Powell (ankle) out for Week 8 against the Jets, the team announced.

Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) was the only player listed as doubtful on the final injury report on Friday. Marcus Easley (knee) and Aaron Williams (neck) were labeled as questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ron Brooks (groin), Brandon Spikes (ribs), Sammy Watkins (groin) and Mario Williams (thumb) were all deemed probable.


Ravens unveil final injury report for Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:25 pm ET) The Ravens have officially ruled Chris Canty (wrist) and Owen Daniels (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Meanwhile, Eugene Monroe (knee), Kelechi Osemele (knee), Daryl Smith (rest) and Steve Smith Sr. (rest) were all labeled probable for Week 8.

The impact of Owen Daniels' injury?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:25 pm ET) Just as he seemed to be finding his way in the offense, Ravens tight end Owen Daniels has been sidelined surprisingly in Week 8 after undergoing an undisclosed knee procedure.

We loved Daniels' chances to find success Week 8 against the Bengals after hauling in six passes for 58 yards and a touchdown last week. Now he will miss at least one game, with his status moving forward unknown at this point. Fantasy owners in desperate need of a tight end for Week 8 might want to see if Charles Clay of the Dolphins or Jared Cook of the Rams is available right now.

Long-term, it is impossible to say just how this will impact Daniels. Coach John Harbaugh has not ruled him out for Week 9, but he might be limited even if he is able to return that quickly. Daniels isn't a must-drop Fantasy option, but he also isn't someone you absolutely have to have on your roster.

Still, Daniels was third on the team in targets, and that was with Dennis Pitta playing a huge role before his injury. If you have room on your roster, it might be worth hanging on to Daniels for one week to get a clearer picture.

(2:20 pm ET) The Steelers have officially ruled out Steve McLendon (shoulder), Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) and Ike Taylor (forearm) for Week 8 at home against Indianapolis. Marcus Gilbert has yet to pass the league's concussion protocol and was labeled doubtful for Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ryan Shazier (knee), Brett Keisel (rest), Mike Mitchell (rest) and Troy Polamalu (rest) were all deemed probable.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Titans RB Shonn Greene on track to return Sunday


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.

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.


Dolphins relatively healthy entering Week 8 at Jacksonville


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:32 pm ET) The Dolphins enter Week 8 at Jacksonville relatively healthy despite having 14 players on the final injury report for Sunday's game.

Jimmy Wilson (hamstring) was the only player that was unable to practice all week. He's been ruled doubtful for the game. Samson Satele (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice all week and was labeled questionable.

Bills RB Fred Jackson officially ruled out for Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:08 pm ET) As expected, Bills running back Fred Jackson was officially ruled out for Week 8 against the Jets because of a groin injury, per WGR.

Jackson sustained the injury in the previous week against the Vikings and will likely require at least two weeks of recovery. The team will likely turn to Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon to shoulder the load against New York.


Julius Thomas' touchdown drought no cause for concern


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:07 pm ET) After his second subpar performance in a row, we have to ask: Are you worried about Broncos tight end Julius Thomas?

Thomas has long been dependent on touchdowns, but he has also been a touchdown machine over the last two seasons. He has at least one touchdown in five of seven games this season and 10 of 14 last season, so he has proven to be a reliable red zone option. In fact, Week 7 and 8 represents the first time he has gone two weeks in a row without scoring.

Thomas recorded nine games with less than 50 yards last season, and has four in seven games already this season, so you pretty much know what you are getting from him. He was still targeted six times overall in each of the last two games even without scoring, a solid number in line with what we have come to expect.

In other words, don't panic. That Thomas failed to score in consecutive games for the first time in two seasons is probably bad luck more than anything indicative of a changing role. He remains one of the most dangerous weapons in the league near the end zone, and should make his return there soon. 


Chargers CB Verrett to 'miss some time' with shoulder issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:04 pm ET) Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett is expected to "miss some time" with a shoulder injury, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Friday. Verrett suffered the injury Week 8 at Denver had his arm in a sling following the game. He is set to undergo further exams Friday.

Verrett has one interception and 19 combined tackles on the season.


Colts RB Trent Richardson could be game-time decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:00 pm ET) Colts running back Trent Richardson was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers in Week 8. Richardson left Week 7 against Cincinnati with a hamstring issue and has not been able to practice all week. Coach Chuck Pagano told reporters he has been doing some rehab work on the side and could be be viewed as a game-time decision leading up to kickoff, per the team's official website.

Colts' Chuck Pagano: WR Reggie Wayne will sit out Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:53 pm ET) Colts coach Chuck Pagano told reporters that wideout Reggie Wayne will miss Sunday's Week 8 clash against the Steelers, according to the team's official website. Wayne was unable to practice all week after suffering an elbow injury Week 7 against the Bengals.

He has 38 catches for 434 yards and a touchdown this season.


Branden Oliver now looking like less of a sure thing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:37 pm ET) After taking the league by storm with consecutive 100-yard rushing games, Chargers running back Branden Oliver has come back to earth over the last two weeks.

Oliver rushed for just 36 yards on 13 carries in Week 8 against the Broncos, his second straight game with six or fewer Fantasy points. Though it looked like he might take the starting job and run with it, Oliver's struggles over the last two games should leave the door open for Ryan Mathews to take on a solid role when he comes back from his knee injury -- whenever that might be.

As long as Mathews remains out, Oliver will be the go-to back in San Diego, but this is something to keep an eye on. He could remain useful in the Danny Woodhead role, however, even when Mathews is back, so don't expect Oliver to lose all his value. But he has a tough matchup on the way in Week with a Dolphins defense that is allowing just 3.70 yards per carry to running backs on the way.  


Eagles in good shape heading into Week 8 game at Arizona


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:31 pm ET) The Eagles have released an injury report Friday that has just one player worse off than questionable. Wide receiver Brad Smith (groin) will not play.

Those designated as questionable are center Jason Kelce (hernia), linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf) and running back Darren Sproles (knee). Running back Chris Polk (hamstring), linebacker DeMeco Ryans (groin) and cornerback Jaylen Watkins (wrist) are probable.


Keenan Allen still searching for the big play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:27 pm ET) Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen put together his second double-digit Fantasy point effort of the season Thursday, but does Week 8 represent a turning point in his season?

Allen finally found the end zone for the first time all season en route to a seven-catch, 73-yard effort, which made for his best outing of the season. However, we still see some of the big issues that have limited him all season lurking in Allen's supposed breakout game.

Targets and catches have been there all season for Allen, but he hasn't done much with them, and that was still something of an issue Thursday. He had a season-high 41 yards after the catch, but that came out to an average of just 4.6 per reception. That is still down from 6.2 per catch a year ago.

Allen's role in the offense is still big enough that there is reason for confidence, but his inability to break off the big play remains troubling. Until he starts to turn that trend around, Allen's upside remains limited.
