Head coach Bill O'Brien said Cushing (knee) was "moving around pretty good out there" during Friday's practice session, the Houston Chronicle reports.
The coach's comments suggest Cushing, officially listed as questionable, is likely to play Sunday against the Titans. Kickoff is at 1:00 ET.
|Fri Oct 31||23:19||Updating previous report, Martin (ankle) listed as doubtful for ...||Doug Martin||RB||Buccanneers||Free Agent|
Updating a previous report, Martin (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Browns.
With Martin held out of practice the last three days due to the ankle injury, the Bucs look poised to enter Week 9 with a backfield comprised of Bobby Rainey, Mike James and Charles Sims (ankle). If either option thrives in his stead Sunday, Martin could find himself on the shorter end of a running back committee once he returns to active duty.
|Fri Oct 31||18:56||Johnson (hand) questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland||Michael Johnson||LB||Bengals||Free Agent|
Johnson (hand) is questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Johnson practiced all week, though only in a limited capacity. Johnson's presence would be reassuring for the Buccaneers after they gave him a five-year, $43.75 million deal in the offseason, yet he has only 15 tackles and two sacks in six games.
|Fri Oct 31||18:52||Martin (ankle) questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland||Doug Martin||RB||Buccanneers||Free Agent|
Martin (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Martin didn't practice all week, so it looks like he's a long shot to play against the Browns. Bobby Rainey is expected to start, though rookie third-round pick Charles Sims (ankle) figures to make his debut Sunday and earn some snaps, too.
|Fri Oct 31||18:50||Jackson (ribs) probable for Sunday's game against Cleveland||Vincent Jackson||WR||Buccanneers||Logic|
Jackson (ribs) is probable for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Jackson's rib issue appears to nearly be past him, so hopefully he can start capitalizing on his high target count this week. Prior to a five-target aberration against the Vikings last week, Jackson totaled 60 targets in six games.
|Fri Oct 31||18:46||Charles (back) listed as probable for Sunday's game against Jets||Jamaal Charles||RB||Chiefs||Free Agent|
Charles (back) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jets, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Charles practiced fully all week, so there is little doubt that he will be available Sunday to head the Chiefs' Week 9 rushing attack.
|Fri Oct 31||18:41||Saffold (shoulder) probable for Sunday's game against San Franci...||Rodger Saffold||OT||Rams||Free Agent|
Saffold (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Saffold's presence is a bit reassuring for the Rams, but the line is still looking vulnerable with Jake Long (knee) out.
|Fri Oct 31||18:40||McLeod (knee) questionable for Sunday's game against San Francis...||Rodney McLeod||S||Rams||Free Agent|
McLeod (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Given St. Louis' Tuesday trade for Mark Barron, it's probable that McLeod will head to the bench even if he suits up.
|Fri Oct 31||18:37||Wells (elbow) probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco||Scott Wells||C||Rams||Free Agent|
Wells (elbow) is probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Wells' elbow injury turned out to be a non-issue, which is good news for Austin Davis and the St. Louis backfield.
|Fri Oct 31||18:34||Britt (hip) probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco||Kenny Britt||WR||Titans||Free Agent|
Britt (hip) is probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Britt is at nearly full health for Sunday, and he might see a more prominent role in the St. Louis offense with Brian Quick (shoulder) out. Still, the St. Louis passing game has struggled a bit lately, making it hard to see Britt as much more than a deep league gamble for now.
|Fri Oct 31||18:31||Johnson (ankle) probable for Sunday's game against Eagles||Andre Johnson||WR||Texans||The Squirts|
Johnson (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, the Texans' official site reports.
Johnson looks good to go this week, and is thus in line to continue to see his share of targets, on the heels of seeing 12 looks in Week 8, and 33 targets over his last three games overall.
|Fri Oct 31||18:26||Brock (toe) questionable for Sunday's game against St||Tramaine Brock||CB||49ers||Free Agent|
Brock (toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
Brock played against Denver last week, but he didn't quite look right, and it's possible that the 49ers might rest him this week against a St. Louis wideout rotation that just lost lead man Brian Quick (shoulder) for the year.
|Fri Oct 31||18:26||Foster (knee) probable for Sunday's game against Eagles||Arian Foster||RB||Texans||Wasabiwolt|
Foster (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, the Texans' official site reports.
Foster remains a candidate to see plenty of work in Week 9, having hit the 20-carry mark and topped 100 rushing yards in each of the Texans' last four games, en route to notching eight touchdowns in that span.
|Fri Oct 31||18:24||Willis (toe) questionable for Sunday's game against St||Patrick Willis||LB||49ers||Free Agent|
Willis (toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
Willis practiced in a limited capacity all week, but he evidently isn't quite ready to call himself 100 percent healthy. He'll therefore head into the weekend questionable, so his IDP owners will want to have a replacement option within reach for the 4:05 eastern time wave of games Sunday.
|Fri Oct 31||18:21||Culliver (shoulder) probable for Sunday's game against St||Chris Culliver||CB||49ers||Free Agent|
Culliver (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's game against St. Louis.
Culliver's return at cornerback will make life a bit tougher for Austin Davis and the St. Louis receivers, but he isn't likely to make a predictable IDP impact.
|Fri Oct 31||18:14||Chancellor (groin) questionable for Sunday's game against Oaklan...||Kam Chancellor||S||Seahawks||Free Agent|
Chancellor (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Chancellor didn't show up on the injury report until Friday, at which point he was listed as a DNP on the practice report. That implies he suffered the injury after Thursday's practice or during Friday's. Either way, it makes Chancellor highly questionable for Sunday. With Jeron Johnson out, Chancellor's backup appears to be DeShawn Sneed or Steven Terrell.
|Fri Oct 31||18:07||Wayne (elbow) practiced fully Friday||Reggie Wayne||WR||Colts||Diddlee Poo|
Wayne (elbow) practiced fully Friday, ESPN.com reports.
The report notes that coach Chuck Pagano indicated Thursday that he wanted to see how Wayne fared at practice Friday and Saturday before making a decision on the wideout's status for Monday's game against the Giants, but Wayne's full participation Friday certainly bodes well on that front.
|Fri Oct 31||18:06||Johnson (concussion) out for Sunday's game against Oakland||Jeron Johnson||DB||Seahawks||Free Agent|
Johnson (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Johnson's absence leaves Seattle more dependent on other backups for its special teams coverage, but it shouldn't change much otherwise.
|Fri Oct 31||18:01||Smith (non-injury) out for Sunday's game against Oakland||Malcolm Smith||LB||Seahawks||Free Agent|
Smith (non-injury) is out for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Smith's absence is a disruptive one for the Seahawks, as he was already stepping in as a replacement for Bobby Wagner (toe) in one of Seattle's three-down linebacker roles. Bruce Irvin seems to be the next man in line, but any one of a handful of Seattle backups could get auditions in Smith's place Sunday, too.
|Fri Oct 31||17:57||Sherman (back) probable for Sunday's game against Oakland||Richard Sherman||CB||Seahawks||Free Agent|
Sherman (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Sherman's absence Thursday was evidently for rest purposes more than anything else, so he's ready to go for Sunday. Playing against a rookie quarterback (Derek Carr), this would seem to be one of his better on-paper bets to intercept a pass -- something he's yet to do in 2014.
