Taking a look at the waiver wire for running backs
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:38 pm ET) With a slew of running backs injured or on bye in Week 8, the waiver-wire is going to be a feeding frenzy this week. In his weekly waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg, tabs Bills back Bryce Brown (4 percent ownership) as the must-add option.

Brown is set to see a larger role in the wake of injuries to C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, who can be freely dropped at this point. The Rams' Tre Mason (17 percent), the Jaguars' Denard Robinson (5 percent), the Saints' Travaris Cadet (4 percent) and the Panthers' Jonathan Stewart (47 percent) round out the rest of the top-five for the running back priority list. 


Chargers CB Jason Verrett limited in practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:35 pm ET) Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett was limited in Tuesday's practice due to his shoulder injury. He also got in limited practices last week before sitting out Week 7. San Diego visits the Broncos on Thursday.

Waiver wire thin for quarterbacks this week
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5:32 pm ET) With an eye on Week 8 and beyond, Jamey Eisenberg tabbed his top quarterbacks on the waiver wire Tuesday, headlined by the Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, who is owned in just 43 percent of CBSSports.com leagues at this point.

Additionally, Jamey eyes a few key stashes who might be worth your time if you are having trouble at the position or just have a roster spot to fill. Specifically, recovering Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (36 percent) and Johnny Manziel (13 percent), the Browns' backup, could be worth a flier.

Among quarterbacks with a lower ceiling who nonetheless have jobs locked down, Kyle Orton of the Bills (12 percent) and Alex Smith of the Chiefs (59 percent) have some value, with matchups against the Jets and Rams, respectively, for Week 8. 


Reggie Wayne still awaiting MRI results
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:14 pm ET) Colts wideout Reggie Wayne said in a radio interview that he's waiting "like everybody else" for the results of his MRI, reports WRTV in Indianapolis. Wayne injured his elbow in Sunday's win over the Bengals and the scan was performed Monday.

"I feel pretty good. Sore regardless," Wayne said. "It's a brutal game."

The station speculated earlier that Wayne could miss one or two games. Indy visits the Steelers on Sunday.


Broncos K Brandon McManus held out Tuesday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:05 pm ET) Broncos kicker Brandon McManus did not practice Tuesday due to a groin injury, but coach John Fox doesn't seem worried about McManus' availability for Thursday's game against the Chargers, reports ESPN.com. "See what tomorrow brings," Fox said. "I'm sure he'll be good to go."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

La Canfora: Titans trading LB Akeem Ayers to Pats
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:43 pm ET) The Titans agreed to trade linebacker Akeem Ayers to the Patriots, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. New England will give up a sixth-round pick and receive Ayers plus a seventh-rounder, per La Canfora.

The Tennessean said the trade will go through once Ayers passes a physical.


Giants' Jon Beason might shut it down with big toe injury
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:23 pm ET) Giants linebacker Jon Beason told WFAN that it's 50-50 whether he tries to play again this season or has surgery on his injured toe, reports the New York Daily News. Beason, who visited a foot specialist Tuesday, said in the interview that he's playing "without a critical ligament" in his big toe.

Beason returned to action Week 7 but aggravated the injury in the loss at Dallas.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:01 pm ET) Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers did not practice Tuesday and appears likely to miss Thursday's game at Denver. He suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
