Report: Bengals stud WR A.J. Green still sidelined Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:12 pm ET) A nagging toe injury again prevented Bengals star wide receiver A.J. Green from practicing Thursday, at least during the media availability portion of the session, the team website is reporting.

Green, who was overheard telling a teammate after the shutout loss to Indianapolis in Week 7 that he will play Sunday against AFC North rival Baltimore, has not participated in game action since Oct. 5.


Bengals CB Leon Hall back in action Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:07 pm ET) Bengals cornerback Leon Hall returned to practice Thursday after missing time with a lower back strain sustained in the Week 7 loss to Indianapolis.

Hall has started every game this season. He has contributed to 27 tackles and has one interception.


Browns DT Ahtyba Rubin has shot at playing Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:02 pm ET) Mike Pettine spoke optimistically Thursday about the possible return to action of Browns defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin on Sunday against visiting Oakland.

Pettine declared that Rubin, who has been sidelined the last two games with an ankle injury, practiced well on Wednesday.

The Browns could certainly use a healthy Rubin. Their defensive line has been decimated by injuries in recent weeks.


Colts WR Reggie Wayne again absent from practice Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:51 pm ET) An elbow ailment again prevented Colts veteran wideout Reggie Wayne from practicing Thursday.

Though an MRI has revealed no significant damage, Wayne has yet to participate in any session this week. His availability for the Sunday clash with Pittsburgh remains cloudy.


Bucs' Vincent Jackson: 'I'm happy here in Tampa'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:50 pm ET) Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson said Thursday he is flattered by the trade speculation, but he has heard nothing from the front office about being dealt, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Jackson added, "I'm happy here in Tampa."

Jackson isn't a free agent until after the 2016 season. He has 25 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns through six games in 2014.


Cowboys LB Bruce Carter back at practice Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:43 pm ET) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter returned to practice Thursday after missing the last three games due to a strained quadriceps. The Cowboys are preparing to face the Redskins in Week 8.

LB Darin Drakeford back with Chiefs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:42 pm ET) The Chiefs have signed linebacker Darin Drakeford to their practice squad. He played briefly with that team in 2013.

Drakeford was cut by Atlanta before the regular season.


Browns QB Brian Hoyer: 'Maybe it's good we lost last week'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:08 am ET) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has expressed both anger over his effort Sunday at Jacksonville and hopefulness that the dud of the team performance will prove to be a positive in the long run.

Hoyer had his worst game with Cleveland, completing just 16 of 41 passes for 215 yards. He also threw an interception, lost a fumble, had four tosses batted down and finished with a career-worst passer rating of 46.3.

"Of all the games I've every played, that's the worst I've ever felt after one, and it's something you have to deal with learning on the job," he told the Akron Beacon Journal. "...For the first time in my career in the NFL, I played a bad game, and it sucks. I take a lot [of blame] on myself, and that's why I probably wasn't too pleasant to be around the past two days."

Hoyer, however, claims that the team could benefit from the 24-6 defeat to a Jaguars team that had been winless entering play. After all, the Browns are preparing to play the 0-6 Raiders in Cleveland on Sunday.

"Maybe it's good we lost last week," he said. "I don't think we underestimated anyone. But I think now we see that no matter who we're playing, we have to be at our best, and there's no excuses and we have to go out and execute."


Jets WR Percy Harvin to media: Mum's the word
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Newly acquired wideout Percy Harvin has told media members covering the Jets on Wednesday that he has been instructed not to conduct any interviews with them, per the New York Daily News.

It remains to be seen if Harvin fulfills media obligations by being allowed to speak on Friday, as the team promised.

With the Jets already having careened out out of the playoff race, the controversial acquisition of Harvin from Seattle has undergone great scrutiny. Harvin spoke on Monday about the circumstances involed in his departure from the Seahawks - including fights with fellow receivers Doug Baldwin and Golden Tate.


Falcons WR Harry Douglas back at practice, might play Week 8
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:45 am ET) After missing the last 10 practices, Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas finally returned to the practice field Thursday, coach Mike Smith announced. Smith added Douglas, who has missed the last four games, was limited in practice.

Smith hinted at a possibility of Douglas playing Week 8 against the Lions. Smith said the team will have to monitor Douglas' status over the next few days, per the team's official website.
