Marcus Mariota
Titans' Marcus Mariota: Tops 300 yards in win
Marcus Mariota, QB, TEN
10:49 PM
News: Mariota (hamstring) completed 23 of 32 passes for 306 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Monday night's 36-22 win over the Colts.

Mariota returned from a one-game absence due to a hamstring injury to top 300 yards for the first time this season. His night was highlighted by a 53-yard touchdown to Taywan Taylor during the fourth quarter, a play in which Mariota hung in the pocket to deliver a bomb downfield and give the Titans a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Because of his ailment, Mariota was restricted to two rushes for zero yards, and although he also threw a pick, the signal caller will still be pleased with his performance at less than 100 percent. What's more, a matchup against the Browns awaits Mariota fresh off Monday's win.

Chad Kelly
Broncos' Chad Kelly: Can return to practice
Chad Kelly, QB, DEN
8:53 PM
News: Kelly (wrist) can return to practice this week, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

The Broncos have three weeks to decide whether to activate Kelly or he will revert to injured reserve for the remainder of the season. The rookie seventh-round pick has started throwing, but there remains no clear place on the Broncos roster with backup Brock Osweiler healthy and Paxton Lynch (shoulder) also nearing a return.

Garrett Gilbert
Panthers' Garrett Gilbert: Promoted to active roster
Garrett Gilbert, QB, CAR
6:46 PM
News: Gilbert was promoted to the active roster Monday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

This seems like an odd signing for Carolina, as they already have three signal callers on the active roster. It's possible the Panthers are hoping to flip him for a mid-to-late round pick given all the injuries to quarterbacks around the league. Regardless, Gilbert still resides far off the fantasy radar.

Jameis Winston
Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Day-to-day with shoulder issue
Jameis Winston, QB, TB
5:24 PM
News: Coach Dirk Koetter confirmed Monday that Winston has an AC joint sprain, but relayed that there's no structural damage in the QB's right (throwing) shoulder, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Buccaneers consider Winston day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game against the Bills, with Auman adding that the QB isn't expected to throw at all during Wednesday's practice. That might occur later in the week, but the team plans to exercise caution with Winston, in any case. Ryan Fitzpatrick is thus in line for added practice reps Wednesday, at a minimum.

Aaron Rodgers
Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Needs potential season-ending surgery
Aaron Rodgers, QB, GB
3:58 PM
News: Rodgers will have surgery to repair a broken right clavicle, but the Packers won't make a decision on his availability for the rest of the season until after the procedure is completed, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The Packers likely will place Rodgers on injured reserve, which would technically make him eligible to return Week 15 against the Panthers. The current tone suggests he's unlikely to actually be available at that juncture, but a return for the playoffs (if the Packers qualify) might be a bit more realistic. Rodgers came back from a broken clavicle after seven weeks in 2013, but that injury was on the left side of his body and didn't require surgery to heal. Brett Hundley will start Sunday's game against the Saints.

Analysis: 

Teddy Bridgewater
Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Returning to practice Wednesday
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, MIN
2:58 PM
News: Bridgewater (knee) will begin practicing Wednesday but won't be removed from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list immediately, Chris Tomasson of The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "He'll stay on the PUP list until he's ready to play," coach Mike Zimmer said on Monday. "He hasn't practiced in 14 months, so we're not going to (overdo it) Wednesday."

The Vikings can take up to three weeks before they have to either activate Bridgewater to the 53-man roster or place him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. The latter would only happen in the event of a major setback, as the Vikings could seriously use Bridgewater's help while there's so much uncertainty surrounding Sam Bradford (knee). Tomasson speculates that Bridgewater could be held out the next two weeks and then activated for games after the Vikings' Week 9 bye. His role upon returning will depend upon his own performance in practice and Case Keenum's performance in games, in addition to Bradford's health. Keenum remains the best best to start Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Analysis: 

Trevor Siemian
Broncos' Trevor Siemian: Expected to play against Chargers
Trevor Siemian, QB, DEN
2:32 PM
News: The Broncos believe Siemian will be able to play through a minor left shoulder sprain in Sunday's game against the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Siemian injured his non-throwing shoulder while trying to make a tackle late in the second quarter of Sunday's 23-10 loss to the Giants. He missed the next series but then returned after halftime, ultimately finishing the game 29-of-50 passing for 376 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. With Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie already ruled out with ankle injuries, Siemian will have to take on the Chargers with a diminished supporting cast, assuming he's able to play. Siemian will likely be listed when the Broncos release their first injury report Wednesday.

Analysis: 

Sam Bradford
Vikings' Sam Bradford: Feeling better after weekend
Sam Bradford, QB, MIN
2:25 PM
News: Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that Bradford (knee) is feeling better but won't necessarily be ready to practice Wednesday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Bradford recently traveled to New York for Regenokine blood-spinning treatment, which is expected to take five or six days. Combining that information with a recent report that the quarterback's surgically repaired left knee could eventually lead him to consider an early retirement, it's hard to imagine Bradford returning to practice Wednesday and then starting Sunday's game against the Ravens. He should still be viewed as out indefinitely, but the Vikings do at least have some good news on the quarterback front, with Teddy Bridgewater (knee) set to resume practicing Wednesday. While Case Keenum likely will start at least one more game, the team may soon have other options at quarterback, be it Bridgewater, Bradford, or both.

DeShone Kizer
Browns' DeShone Kizer: Could regain starting job
DeShone Kizer, QB, CLE
1:48 PM
News: Browns coach Hue Jackson said he will announce his Week 7 starting quarterback Wednesday, choosing between Kizer and Kevin Hogan, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Hogan was a complete disaster in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Texans, producing just 3.8 yards per pass attempt while tossing a trio of interceptions. Kizer has suffered through a couple similarly poor performances this season, but it nonetheless seems his demotion may only last a week or two. The Browns face the Titans in Week 7, and ESPN.com's Pat McManamon believes Jackson hinted that Kizer likely will get the start.

Kevin Hogan
Browns' Kevin Hogan: Could lose job already
Kevin Hogan, QB, CLE
1:46 PM
News: Browns coach Hue Jackson said he will announce his Week 7 starting quarterback Wednesday, choosing between Hogan and DeShone Kizer, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Hogan fell flat on his face in his first career start Sunday against the Texans, completing 20 of 37 passes for 140 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions. The final score was 33-17, but the Browns were down 33-3 before cornerback Jason McCourty came through with a pick-six early in the fourth quarter. Hogan finally led the team on a touchdown drive in garbage time, but it wasn't enough to save him from an ugly final stat line. Apparently unimpressed, Jackson is already thinking about turning back to Kizer after just one week. The Browns face the Titans in Week 7.
