Giants WR Washington a 'work in progress' 10-22-2014
Corey Washington WR NYG
Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan says Corey Washington remains "a work in progress."

Newark Star-Ledger
"He's learning to run an entire route tree," Ryan said when asked why Washington isn't playing. "There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his top of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on." At 6'4/214, Washington is merely a Dynasty stash and watch-list candidate. With Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle expected to see increased reps in the slot with Victor Cruz out, Washington could see a few snaps on the outside.
McCown (thumb) limited on Wednesday 10-22-2014
Josh McCown QB TB
Josh McCown (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice. McCown is on track to return coming off the Bucs' Week 7 bye. He should handle backup duties behind Mike Glennon.
Jimmy Graham limited on Wednesday 10-22-2014
Jimmy Graham TE NO
Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited on Wednesday.

Mike Triplett on Twitter
Graham is going to play, but will likely be limited to passing-only situations. Owners will be scared after Graham's zero-catch effort on 30 snaps in Week 7, but the Saints-Packers game has an over-under of 54 points.
Khiry Robinson (forearm) not practicing Wed. 10-22-2014
Khiry Robinson RB NO
Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not practice Wednesday. Robinson said he has a "little boo-boo," but he's "straight." We'll see if he gets back to practice Thursday. If Robinson can't play, Mark Ingram would likely handle 15-18 carries as a solid RB2 against the Packers' No. 31 run defense.
Owen Daniels (knee) misses practice 10-22-2014
Owen Daniels TE BAL
Owen Daniels (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Jamison Hensley on Twitter
It's a new injury for Daniels, who posted a 6/58/1 line in Week 7. His status will be updated again on Thursday.
Pierre Thomas, Khiry Robinson not practicing 10-22-2014
Pierre Thomas RB NO
Pierre Thomas (ribs, shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

Mike Triplett on Twitter
Thomas is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Travaris Cadet will see an increased role in the passing game. Khiry Robinson (forearm) also missed practice Wednesday, though his injury isn't believed to be serious. Cadet is worth looking at in deeper PPR leagues after producing a 15-129-1 receiving line the past two weeks.
Gio Bernard limited Wednesday with rib injury 10-22-2014
Giovani Bernard RB CIN
Giovani Bernard (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice. The Bengals are limiting Bernard's reps after he took several big hits in Sunday's loss. His rib injury isn't considered serious, and shouldn't keep him out of Week 8 against the Ravens.
John Brown (ankle) limited Wednesday 10-22-2014
John Brown WR ARZ
John Brown (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Kent Somers on Twitter
Coach Bruce Arians said Brown has a sprained ankle. It must be of the mild variety. He remains on track to be a boom-or-bust WR4 against the Eagles in Week 8.
Fozzy Whittaker (quad) unable to practice 10-22-2014
Fozzy Whittaker RB CAR
Fozzy Whittaker (quad) did not practice Wednesday. He remains week to week. With DeAngelo Williams (ankle) also sidelined, the Panthers will continue to go with Chris Ogbonnaya and Darrin Reaves behind Jonathan Stewart.
Donald Brown officially ruled out 10-22-2014
Donald Brown RB SD
Donald Brown (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. Brandon Oliver will make his third straight start. Ryan Mathews (MCL) has also been out for Week 8.
Luke Willson (groin) back at practice Wed. 10-22-2014
Luke Willson TE SEA
Luke Willson (groin) returned to Seahawks practice Wednesday.

Curtis Crabtree on Twitter
Willson sat out Week 7, leaving tight end duties to Cooper Helfet, who caught three passes for 61 yards and a score. Willson won't be guaranteed to start in his return to the lineup with Zach Miller (ankle) still sidelined.
Andre Ellington limited again on Wednesday 10-22-2014
Andre Ellington RB ARZ
Andre Ellington (ribs, foot) was limited on Wednesday. Ellington played through his rib injury in Sunday's win and hasn't had any setbacks with his foot injury. He'll be borderline RB1 against the Eagles in Week 8.
Anthony Dixon expects RBBC w/ Bryce Brown 10-22-2014
Bryce Brown RB BUF
Anthony Dixon said he expects to "kinda do it together, as a combination" with Bryce Brown in the Bills' backfield.

Shonn Greene (hamstring) returns to practice 10-22-2014
Shonn Greene RB TEN
Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's Greene's first practice in two weeks. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Bishop Sankey is going to remain the Titans' lead back even when Greene returns.
Martellus Bennett (hamstring) not practicing 10-22-2014
Martellus Bennett TE CHI
Martellus Bennett (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Jeff Dickerson on Twitter
Bennett played his full complement of snaps Week 7 against the Dolphins, so we're not sure when he was hurt. He hasn't found the end zone in four games and is averaging just four catches for 42 yards on six targets per game the past three weeks. Always a hot starter, Bennett is merely a low-end TE1 option.
Chris Polk expects to return in Week 8 10-22-2014
Chris Polk RB PHI
Chris Polk (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday. Polk has missed the Eagles' first six games. It puts him on track to play in Week 8 against the Cardinals. Polk would back up LeSean McCoy if Darren Sproles (knee) is held out.
Darren Sproles (knee) limited Wednesday 10-22-2014
Darren Sproles RB PHI
Darren Sproles (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jeff McLane on Twitter
As expected. Sproles is off on the right foot to play Week 8 against Cardinals. But at less than 100 percent against a good defense, he's merely an RB3.
Jake Locker (thumb) limited on Wednesday 10-22-2014
Jake Locker QB TEN
Jake Locker (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice. There should be more clarity on Locker's status Thursday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt has said he expects Locker to return this week.
Harvin to have 'small role' on O in Jets debut 10-22-2014
Percy Harvin WR NYJ
Coach Rex Ryan said it's "unrealistic" to expect Percy Harvin to play 50 offensive snaps in his Jets' debut Week 8 against the Bills.

Rich Cimini on Twitter
Harvin will return kickoffs and possibly punts, but he doesn't know OC Marty Mornhinweg's offense. The Jets will have a couple packages for Harvin on offense, but he's unlikely to play more than 25-30 snaps. It may take a few weeks before Harvin becomes usable in fantasy lineups. It'll be Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley gobbling up the bulk of the work and targets at receiver Sunday.
Eric Decker (hamstring limited Wednesday 10-22-2014
Eric Decker WR NYJ
Eric Decker (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Decker hasn't had any setbacks with his hamstring injury. He should be close to being fully healthy. Decker will be on the WR2 radar against the Bills.
Sammy Watkins (groin) practicing in full Wed. 10-22-2014
Sammy Watkins WR BUF
Sammy Watkins (groin) practiced in full Wednesday.

Mike Rodak on Twitter
It's a new "injury" for Watkins, but not one that will affect his availability for Week 8 against the Jets. In a tasty matchup with Kyle Orton, Watkins is a WR2.
Vincent Jackson (ribs) held out on Wednesday 10-22-2014
Vincent Jackson WR TB
Vincent Jackson (ribs) did not practice Wednesday.

Roy Cummings on Twitter
The Bucs are getting Jackson extended rest coming off their bye. Jackson is fully expected to play in Week 8 against the Vikings.
