Raiders T Khalif Barnes practices Wednesday, may not start
Watson has allowed just two pressures in two starts, but coach Tony Sparano was noncommittal earlier in the week when asked about the situation. "We’re going to have some decisions to make," Sparano said Monday. "Menelik did a great job in there again (on Sunday). Khalif has been a real staple for me at a bunch of positions, as you know. I really feel like he’s one of the leaders of that group and he hasn’t been out there, but Menelik has done a really good job. We’ll find ways to keep them all involved and to keep them all going. The good news is that Menelik is a young player right now that is getting better."
Watson ran with the first team during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media.
Seahawks S Kam Chancellor misses practice Wednesday
"I think last game it kind of flared up on him again a little bit," teammate Richard Sherman told the Seattle Times. "He was able to overcome it and continue to play in the game but obviously any time you have an ankle injury it takes a lot. But he’s fought through and done a great job."
Chancellor has battled ankle issues throughout the season.
Seahawks rule TE Zach Miller out for Week 8
Miller earned an "out" designation on the team's injury report Wednesday. He has played just three games, catching six passes for 76 yards.
Bills likely to insert Kraig Urbik into starting lineup at guard
"He’s got to be ready to step up and go," Marrone said of Urbik. "If he gets the call on Sunday I’m sure he’ll be ready to go."
The Bills have surrendered 13 sacks in their last three games, and the line faces a tough test against the Jets in Week 8.
Rams S T.J. McDonald (concussion) misses practice Wednesday
Jets LB Quinton Coples expects bigger role in Week 8
"It's back to what it was before Thursday," Coples said after practice Wednesday. "I'll be getting a lot more reps, and back out there a lot more than I was this past Thursday."
When asked if Coples would return to a starting role, coach Rex Ryan said, "Sure, why not?" before adding, "We play our players. We play all our guys."
Coples has recorded just five tackles and one sack in seven games this season.
Bills WR Marcus Easley returns to practice Wednesday
Easley has missed the last four weeks while recovering from a sprained MCL. If he's healthy enough to play Sunday, his presence on special teams could help counter the loss of Anthony Dixon on the unit, as he's expected to fill a much bigger offensive role in the wake of multiple injuries to the team's running backs.
Cordarrelle Patterson no longer on injury report
Minnesota visits Tampa Bay on Sunday.
49ers WR Steve Johnson making most of limited snaps
Despite his success, Johnson might have a hard time earning more time because Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin are locked in as starters and Brandon Lloyd is a deep threat coaches want to get on the field, the paper said.
For now, the paper envisions Johnson continuing to split No. 3 receiver duties with Lloyd, who has played 38 percent of the snaps.
Rams WR Kenny Britt a non-participant Wednesday
