by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:24 pm ET) Rams receiver Tavon Austin has a mild knee strain, coach Jeff Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, saying he wouldn't rule out Austin from Sunday's game against Dallas. Austin suffered the injury in the win at Tampa Bay. He has three catches for 34 yards this season.

Earlier reports suggested Austin would miss about two weeks.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:16 pm ET) Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton said the Vikings should suspend running back Adrian Peterson until accusations of child abuse against him have been resolved, reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Peterson was deactivated Week 2 but, as of now, is back with the team and expected to play Week 3 at New Orleans.

Dennis Allen likes the way Darren McFadden is running
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:07 pm ET) Raiders coach Dennis Allen praised running back Darren McFadden's work in Sunday's loss to the Texans. "I thought he ran the ball hard," Allen told ESPN.com.

"I thought he looked explosive. That was good to see. Hopefully we'll be able to continue to get him more opportunities."

With Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) sitting out, McFadden ran 12 times for 37 yards (3.1 ypc) and a touchdown and caught two passes for 31 yards.


DeMarco Murray on pace for 408 carries
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:48 pm ET) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has carried the ball 51 times, the most for any two-game span in his career, reports ESPN.com. He's on pace for 408 carries after never having run more than 217 times in a season.

"We feel like DeMarco is a durable football player who can take the pounding of being the primary running back for the Cowboys, so we're going to give him opportunities to do that," coach Jason Garrett said. "He seems to relish in getting the work, so that's a good thing. He seems to get better as the game goes on with more carries, and that's what all the good backs that I've ever been around have."

Murray has yet to play a full season, missing 11 games over his first three years. The NFL record for carries is 416, set by Larry Johnson in 2006 with the Chiefs.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Report: NFL could intervene in Greg Hardy case
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:32 pm ET) The NFL is considering whether to intervene in the case of Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, reports NFL.com. Hardy is awaiting a jury trial on domestic violence charges. He was deactivated Week 2 but has returned to practice this week.

The report said the NFL's intervention could consist of "discipline" or "guidance."


Tony Romo still working on footwork
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:27 pm ET) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said quarterback Tony Romo, who has completed only one pass longer than 20 yards, is still working on his footwork following December back surgery.

"Probably this idea of turning on the run, getting the rust off, has to do with the footwork," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. "Anybody that's played golf, anybody that's been around guys in their hitting slumps, if you want to refer to baseball, knows that footwork all works together there. I think that's what you're seeing."

Some of Romo's passes have lacked velocity, though he made some big throws in Sunday's win at Tennessee. Among them, Romo hit Dez Bryant for 18 yards on 3rd-and-15.


Lions need to get football to Reggie Bush with 'more space'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:17 pm ET) Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said during his Monday press conference the team has to do a better job of finding ways to get the football to Reggie Bush and "with a little more space," according to the team's official website.

Bush has just 15 carries and eight catches through two games. He is averaging 2.7 yards per carry and 6.9 yards per reception. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry and 9.4 yards per catch in 2013.

"We’re going to find ways to get guys the ball," Bush said. "Coaches are doing a great job with that and we talked about that earlier (Monday)."
