  • Vernon Davis TE | WAS

    Redskins' Vernon Davis: Set to replace Jordan Reed again

    Davis' teammate Jordan Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Detroit.

    Davis filled in for an injured Reed last week, catching two of four targets for 50 yards and a touchdown while logging 72 of 74 offensive snaps against an Eagles defense that's allowed just eight receptions to tight ends all season. This week's opponent, Detroit, has been far more generous to the position, surrendering a league-high seven touchdowns on 33 catches (tied for sixth-most). The 32-year-old Davis hasn't done much since 2013, but he does have a nice opportunity to turn back the clock, if only for one afternoon.

  • Dolphins' Spencer Paysinger: Uncertain for Week 7

    Paysinger (hamstring/calf) is questionable to play against the Bills on Sunday.

    Paysinger sustained a leg injury in Thursday's practice, but it's unclear what he's specifically dealing with. If he's unable to play, Donald Butler will step in as the Dolphins' starting strongside linebacker.

  • Tony Lippett CB | MIA

    Dolphins' Tony Lippett: Uncertain to face Bills

    Lippett (hamstring) is questionable to play Sunday against the Bills.

    Lippett was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but appears likely to play after participating in full on Friday.

  • Jelani Jenkins OLB | MIA

    Dolphins' Jelani Jenkins: Listed questionable

    Jenkins (groin) is questionable to play Sunday against the Bills.

    It's surprising Jenkins was tagged with a questionable designation considering he wasn't limited in any practice session this week. He's fully expected to play.

  • Buccaneers' Clinton McDonald: Sidelined Week 7

    McDonald (hamstring) will not play against the 49ers on Sunday.

    McDonald was able to return to practice after sitting out on Wednesday, but will be held out due to the lingering nature of hamstring injuries. However, he appears to have an optimistic chance of returning next week. Akeem Spence will get the start on Sunday as his replacement.

  • C.J. Prosise RB | SEA

    Seahawks' C.J. Prosise: Won't necessarily be active Sunday

    Head coach Pete Carroll declined to say Prosise (wrist) will be active for Sunday's game in Arizona,'s Sheil Kapadia reports.

    Free of any designation on the final injury report, Prosise is seemingly ready to play from a health standpoint. He was once considered the favorite to play on obvious passing downs, but C.J. Spiller has been effective in that role since joining the team, hauling in five of eight targets for 43 yards and a touchdown through two games. While the rookie may still be ticketed for Seattle's passing-down role in the long run, he won't necessarily seize it anytime soon.

  • Robert Ayers DE | TB

    Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Unavailable Week 7

    Ayers (ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the 49ers.

    Ayers didn't practice in any capacity this week. Noah Spence will start in his place.

  • Gerald McCoy DT | TB

    Buccaneers' Gerald McCoy: May not be ready for Week 7

    McCoy (calf) is questionable to play against the 49ers on Sunday.

    McCoy sustained a strained calf in Week 4 and still appears to be in recovery. He was limited in practice throughout the week and is truly questionable to suit up.

  • Saints' Stephone Anthony: Ruled out with hamstring injury

    Anthony (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Kansas City.

    A late-week addition to the injury report, Anthony likely get hurt at practice either Thursday or Friday. It's not much of a loss for the Saints, as last year's second-round selection has only played 55 defensive snaps all year.

  • Kam Chancellor SS | SEA

    Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: Listed as doubtful this week

    Chancellor (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night's game at Arizona, the Seattle Times reports.

    If Chancellor can't play Sunday, which is the likely outcome, Kelcie McCray would be in line to get his second start at strong safety in place of Chancellor.
