  • Lavonte David OLB | TB

    Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Non-participant Thursday

    David was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    David presumably suffered the injury in last week's loss to the Lions. Although he was listed as a non-participant, the 27-year-old was seen going through drills without a helmet, so the team just may be exercising caution. His status will need to be monitored as the week progresses.

  • Trevor Siemian QB | DEN

    Broncos' Trevor Siemian: Ruled out for remainder of game

    Siemian (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game, Patrick Smyth of the Broncos' official site reports.

    Siemian took a hard hit from Barkevious Mingo in the first quarter, falling awkwardly on his left shoulder in the process. Before being carted to the locker room, Siemian was five of nine for 67 yards and an interception. Brock Osweiler, who takes over under center, is the only active quarterback left for the Broncos

  • Colts' Brandon Williams: Out for remainder of Thursday's game

    Williams is out for the rest of Thursday's game against the Broncos due to a head injury, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

    Williams left on a stretcher in the first half in what was a very scary scene. Thankfully, the tight end has movement in his limbs and the Colts are describing the injury has a head injury, with no reported damage to the neck according to Zach Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. This is important, as Williams has a preexisting spinal condition that cost him his collegiate career at the University of Oregon.

  • Sterling Moore: Released by Saints

    Moore was cut by the Saints on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Moore's roster spot will be filled by former Patriot linebacker Jonathan Freeny. The veteran cornerback has already been waived and subsequently signed by the Saints once this season, and will now head back to waivers, where another team will have a chance to sign him. Moore has five tackles, one forced fumble and two passes defended in five games this season.

  • Colts' Brandon Williams: Carted off field Thursday

    Williams suffered a spinal injury and was carted off the field Thursday against the Broncos, Mike Chappell of IndySportsCentral.com reports.

    Williams was on punt coverage and suffered helmet-to-helmet contact and spent several minutes on the ground before ultimately being taken off in a stretcher. The reserve tight end has had a history of spinal issues. In his absence, expect Ross Travis and Jason Vander Laan to see increased reps.

  • Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Misses practice

    Clayborn was absent from Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Clayborn presumably suffered the injury in last week's victory over the Saints. He recorded his team-high ninth sack in the contest. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, as the team could have just been opting to exercise caution by keeping him sidelined Thursday. Thus, his status should continue to be monitored throughout the week.

  • Saints' Jonathan Freeny: Claimed off waivers by Saints

    Freeny was claimed off of the Patriots' waivers by the Saints on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The move forces the Saints to cut defensive back Sterling Moore. Freeny's signing likely has to do with linebacker A.J. Klein's (groin) doubtful status for Sunday's inter-conference matchup with the Jets. Freeny did not see much of the field in New England, recording only two tackles in four games, but could be thrust into action right away for New Orleans with Klein injured and linebackers Alex Anzalone (shoulder) and Nathan Stupar (knee) on injured reserve.

  • Trevor Siemian QB | DEN

    Broncos' Trevor Siemian: Injures shoulder

    Siemian suffered a shoulder injury in the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Colts and is questionable to return, Patrick Smyth of the Broncos official site reports.

    It's the same shoulder Siemian had surgery on back in January and the hit he took did not look promising, as the starting quarterback was carted back to the locker room Thursday night. In his absence, Brock Osweiler will take over under center as the only remaining quarterback on the active roster with Paxton Lynch (ankle) inactive.

  • Derrick Morgan OLB | TEN

    Titans' Derrick Morgan: Limited again Thursday

    Morgan (knee) was once again limited at practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Morgan is working his way back from a knee injury that left him sidelined for last week's loss to the Cardinals. Consecutive limited workloads at practice indicates he is trending toward a game-time decision Sunday. Eric Walden and Kevin Dodd would likely see increased snaps if Morgan is forced to sit out again.

  • Ravens' Za'Darius Smith: Full practice Thursday

    Smith (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

    Smith sat out of last week's loss to the Steelers due to a shoulder injury but his full participation means he'll likely be ready for Sunday's game against the Browns.
