Cowboys LB Sean Lee cleared of concussion
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/10/2015) Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee successfully completed the league's concussion protocol and will play Sunday against the Patriots, ESPN Dallas reports.

The Cowboys will need all hands on deck to try and contain Tom Brady and the Pats offense, so having Lee available along with the returning Greg Hardy and Rolando McClain could give them a fighting chance.

Bills LB Nigel Bradham plays all three downs on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/9/2015) Bills linebacker Nigel Bradham saw action on all 70 of the team's defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Giants, registering eight total tackles and a pass defensed.

Bradham and Preston Brown almost never leave the field, and both fare pretty well in the IDP department. Though four games, Bradham has posted 25 tackles and a sack, pretty much in line with his 2014 season that saw him put up 104 and 2.5 in those categories.

Buccaneers DT Gerald McCoy (shoulder) limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, the Buccaneers official site reports.

McCoy's limited status almost certainly falls in the "nothing to see here" category, as he has carried the same designation throughout the practice week for the last two weeks, while not missing any game action. The star defensive tackle has tallied sacks in three of the first four games, and will look to penetrate the Jaguars' vulnerable offensive line in Week 5.

Buccaneers CB Johnthan Banks (knee) didn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) Buccaneers corner back Johnthan Banks (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, the Buccaneers official site reports.

Banks begins the practice week on the sidelines again, and there isn't any concrete indication on when he might be able to return in at least a limited capacity. The Bucs' starting right cornerback was replaced by Mike Jenkins in Week 4, a scenario that will likely repeat itself Sunday against the Jaguars should Banks be unable to go.

Buccaneers S Major Wright (abdomen) gets full run at practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) Buccaneers safety Major Wright (abdomen) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, the Buccaneers official site reports.

The unrestricted participation falls in line with the activity level Wright had built up leading into the Week 4 matchup against the Panthers. Wright is clearly trending towards finally retaking the field Sunday against the Jaguars, and another day of full participation Thursday would further confirm this. However, with Chris Conte's strong performances over the last three contests in Wright's place, it remains to be seen if there will be any timeshare at the strong safety position in the immediate future.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) practiced Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers (concussion) practiced on Wednesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

His practice status seems to suggest the concussion wasn't very serious, however more information should trickle out as the week progresses. The Chargers will need all of their secondary up to speed with a Monday night matchup against the Steelers next on the schedule.

Dolphins CB Brent Grimes unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) 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
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny, who sustained a high-ankle sprain Week 4 against the Colts, hopes to play Sunday against the 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
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) Titans cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) will start against the 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.

Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier questionable for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2015) Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier (shoulder) is questionable for the team's Monday night showdown in San Diego, 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.
