Dolphins CB Brent Grimes unable to practice Wednesday
Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes (knee) will not practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Grimes sprained his MCL during Sunday's London loss to the Dolphins. The 32-year-old cornerback has started every game for Miami since signing with the team back in 2013, but that streak appears to be in jeopardy with Wednesday's latest practice designation.
More information should be available later in the week, however if Grimes is unable to go Jamar Taylor could get the start in his place.
Jaguars LB Paul Posluszny (ankle) hopes to play Week 5
Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny , who sustained a high-ankle sprain Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts , hopes to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers , the team's official site reports.
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Monday that Posluszny's injury wasn't a "traditional" high-ankle sprain, which usually keeps a player out for a couple weeks. Luckily for the Jaguars, their starting middle linebacker isn't ruled out to play Sunday, as he looks to improve on his team-high 39 tackles.
Titans CB Jason McCourty on track to make season debut Week 5
Tennessee Titans cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) will start against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5, ESPN's Paul Kuharsky reports.
McCourty missed the first three weeks of the season after undergoing groin surgery during the preseason, but it appears as if he is good to go for Sunday's game against the Bills. He will likely fill-in at cornerback opposite of free-agent acquisition Perrish Cox .
Ravens TE Crockett Gillmore (calf) held out of practice Wednesday
Baltimore Ravens tight end Crockett Gillmore (calf) did not practice Wednesday.
Although coach John Harbaugh has indicated Gillmore is "week to week," he did suggest the tight end "has a chance this week." Continue to monitor Gillmore's status leading up to Sunday's kickoff against the Cleveland Browns .
Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier questionable for Week 5
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier (shoulder) is questionable for the team's Monday night showdown in San Diego Toreros , Will Graves of the New Pittsburgh Courier reports.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Shazier may not be ready to go Monday night as he continues to recover from a stinger that has kept him out the past two weeks. Shazier can be a valuable indivdual defensive player asset upon his return, but should he miss more time, Sean Spence will continue to see additional work on defense.
Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks unable to practice Wednesday
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.
After dealing with a hamstring injury leading up to Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins , Kendricks was activated for the game. However, he appeared to re-injure his hamstring midway through the contest. If he's unable to go, Jordan Hicks will likely get the start at right inside linebacker.
Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson limited due to thumb injury
Atlanta Falcons wide reciever Leonard Hankerson (thumb) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.
Hankerson has prospered working opposite Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) and even tallied his first 100-yard effort this season Sunday against the Houston Texans . A thumb injury could hinder his ability to catch, but Hankerson's situation should provide fruitful as the season progresses.
Ravens RB Lorenzo Taliaferro misses practice Wednesday
Baltimore Ravens running back Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) did not practice Wednesday. Taliaferro missed practice earlier this season with foot and knee issues, though it's unclear if his absence from practice Wednesday is indicative of a setback or simply maintenance-related.
Falcons WR Julio Jones limited in Wednesday's practice
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones didn't reach 100 receiving yards in Week 4 for the first time this season -- four catches for 38 yards on six targets -- but the blowout nature of the game spurred the Falcons to burn clock via the run game rather than continue to air it out.
He should return to normal Sunday against a Washington defense that has conceded 13.7 yards per catch and six touchdowns to wide receivers this season.
Falcons RB Tevin Coleman limited in Wednesday's practice
Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman (rib) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Coleman practiced for the first time since suffering a fractured rib in Week 2, which paved the way for Devonta Freeman 's emergence. As the week rolls on, Coleman's ability to play Sunday against Washington should receive some clarity, but expect him to take on a change-of-pace role to Freeman when he returns to action.
