Report: Redskins CB Hall suffers second Achilles tear
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:40 am ET) An accident at home has resulted in a second left Achilles tear in five weeks for Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall and will add up to 6-9 months to his recovery time, a source has told the Washington Post.

The veteran sustained the initial injury against Philadelphia in Week 3. He underwent surgery shortly thereafter.

Hall re-signed with Washington in the offseason on a four-year, $17 million contract, including $5.65 million guaranteed.


Dolphins WR Mike Wallace unapologetic after blasting offense
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:31 am ET) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace has not apologized for using a curse word to describe his team's offensive performance in the Week 8 defeat of Jacksonville. The victory came courtesy of two defensive touchdowns.

Wallace also claimed his sentiment and choice of words were not designed to fire up the passing offense, which ranks 25th in the NFL.

"That really wasn't my intention," he told the Palm Beach Post. "Y'all asked me a question and I told y'all my honest answer. That's really what it is. I don't look at stuff in the media or whatever to get me fired up. I get fired up because that's what we do. We love to play the game and you just want to go out and be the best player you can be."

Wallace later added that the Dolphins need to step up their deep passing game. The speedster who specializes in catching the deep ball had just two catches for 59 yards against the Jaguars. He also had his three-game scoring streak snapped.


Panthers QB Cam Newton: 'I need to play better'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:17 am ET) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton believes he can spot the man to blame for their lopsided loss to New Orleans on Thursday in the mirror.

Newton hit on just 10 of 28 passes for 151 yards, one interception and career-low 35.7 completion percentage. His 39.4 quarterback rating was also a career-worst. His lone score was on the ground.

"I knew I missed a lot of throws," he told his team website. "I'm not blaming anybody but myself. ... My job is to put my team in the best situation to win the football game and when that doesn't happen, the first person you look to on the offensive side is the quarterback. I didn't get that job done. I need to play better."


Rivera: Panthers RBs Williams, Stewart need more touches
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:11 am ET) Ron Rivera emphasized after the Thursday night loss to New Orleans that Panthers backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart need more touches going forward. The game marked the first time all season the pair shared the backfield.

Both carried eight times with Stewart earning 40 yards to 20 for Williams, who added a 30-yard gain on a screen pass. Rivera was unhappy with that distribution.

"It's good to have them back there," Rivera told the team website. "We are going to have to continue to find more and more chances to use them, more and more situations where we have to put the ball in their hands. They showed today that they deserve to have the ball in their hands more, and we are going to have to work on that. We have to ... take some pressure off the quarterback."

Quarterback Cam Newton did not respond well to pressure against New Orleans, completing just 10 of 28 passes.


Seahawks to go with Will Tukuafu at fullback
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:52 am ET) The Seahawks will insert fullback Will Tukuafu into the starting lineup, according to the Associated Press. 

Will Tukuafu signed with the club Wednesday, and will replace Derrick Coleman. Coleman began the year as the team's primary option, but was placed on the IR Saturday. Robert Turbin had served as the team's temporary option at the position with Coleman out, but will assume his normal role as backup running back with Tukuafu in tow. 


Saints K Shayne Graham not asked to do much Week 9
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:46 am ET) Saints kicker Shayne Graham was not asked to do much in his team's 28-10 victory over the Panthers in Week 9. Graham, who converted three field goals his last time out, was not summoned for a field goal the entire night. He added four extra points.

The Saints will host the 49ers in Week 10.


Saints WR Robert Meachem makes late-game grab in Week 9
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:43 am ET) Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem, who has been an afterthought in the aerial attack, came down with his first grab since the third week of the season in his team's 28-10 victory over the Panthers.

Meachem broke free down the middle of the field for a comfortable 25-yard reception late in the fourth quarter. He was targeted twice in the win. He has five catches for 85 yards on the season.


Saints RB Travaris Cadet does little in Week 9 victory
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:39 am ET) Saints running back Travaris Cadet failed to make much of an impact in his team's 28-10 Week 9 victory over the Panthers Thursday night.

The team heavily relied on Mark Ingram, who took 30 handoffs on the night. As a result, Cadet was only limited to five touches. He took two handoffs for only 1 yard and caught three of the five passes thrown his way for 29 yards.

The Saints will host San Francisco in Week 10.


Saints WRs Colston, Cooks each limited to three grabs Week 9
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:36 am ET) Saints wide receivers Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks each had quiet performances in a Week 9 victory over the Panthers on Thursday.

Colston came down with a 22-yard pass from Drew Bress on the second offensive series of the night and only had two catches the rest of the way. He caught all three of his targets for 36 yards. Cooks had a similar night, as he came down with two receptions -- one for 18 and another for 5 yards -- on back-to-back plays on the opening drive, but was limited to only one grab the rest of the way. He caught all three targets for 38 yards in a 28-10 victory.


Saints WR Kenny Stills racks up 72 yards Thursday night
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:29 am ET) Saints wide receiver Kenny Stills enjoyed another productive performance, cracking the 70-yard mark in a Thursday night victory over the Panthers in Week 9.

Stills had a costly drop on the opening drive which resulted in an interception by D'wan Edwards. He bounced back with catches of 16, 9 and 17 yards in the second quarter. He was targeted eight times and finished with five catches for 72 yards in a 28-10 victory. He has 373 receiving yards through eight games, most by any other rookie receiver this year.

The Saints will host the 49ers in Week 10.
