Wed Oct 2223:09Wilson (hamstring) returned to practice WednesdayJimmy WilsonDBDolphinsFree Agent
Wilson (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.
Wilson didn't practice in full but even his limited participation is a good sign as far as his availability to play Sunday versus the Jaguars.
Wed Oct 2222:58Jake Locker: Will Likely Back Up In Week 8Jake LockerQBTitansFree Agent
Though Locker (thumb) practiced Wednesday, Zach Mettenberger is in line to start for the Titans in Sunday's game against the Texans, The Tennessean reports.
Locker seemed likely to start Sunday as long as he made it through practice this week without setback, but it appears the Titans want to give Mettenberger a chance to show what he can do. The Titans have not officially announced who will get the start Sunday, but expect them to provide further details sometime soon.
Wed Oct 2222:42Wooten (back) limited participant in Wednesday's practiceCorey WoottonDEBearsFree Agent
Wooten (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
He missed last week's game with a sore lower back, but it looks like he could return this week to add depth to Minnesota's defensive line.

Rudolph (sports hernia) stretched with the team and ran on the side during Wednesday's practice, Fox Sports North reports.
He didn't participate in practice, but it sounds like he's making progress. He'll likely return in Week 11 after Minnesota's bye week.
Wed Oct 2222:21Cushing will sit out at least one game to rest his sore kneeBrian CushingLBTexansFree Agent
Cushing will sit out at least one game to rest his sore knee, according to
Cushing has apparently been playing at less than 100 percent the last two weeks, so the Texans will give him a chance to get healthy. The Texans play two games before their Week 10 bye, so it's possible Cushing could miss at least one more game if his knee does not heal up as hoped.

Woodley suffered a torn bicep in last Sunday's game and is believed to be out for the remainder of the regular season,'s Ian Rapoport reports.
Woodley has racked up just five combined tackles through six games this season, but likely won't have a chance to improve those numbers in 2014. With Justin Tuck (knee) also looking iffy for this Sunday's contest, defensive ends C.J. Wilson and Shelby Harris would be in line for increased reps.
Wed Oct 2220:06Turbin (shoulder) limited in practice WednesdayRobert TurbinRBSeahawksFree Agent
Turbin (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Seahawks' official site reports.
Turbin made a surprise turn at fullback after Derrick Coleman suffered a broken foot during Sunday's pregame warmups. With more blocking than normal on his plate, Turbin's ailment can be explained, and he's in line to pick up another start as Marshawn Lynch's (non-injury) lead blocker Sunday at Carolina, if the Seahawks fail to bring in another FB this week.
Wed Oct 2219:56Chancellor (ankle) didn't practice WednesdayKam ChancellorSSeahawksFree Agent
Chancellor (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, the Seahawks' official site reports.
Chancellor's ankle injury has lingered since initially emerging in mid-September. No matter, he's totaled 27 tackles (20 solo), two passes defended, one interception, and one forced fumble across four games in the interim. Expect him to take the field once again Sunday in Carolina, barring a setback.
Wed Oct 2219:51Lynch (non-injury) didn't partake in practice WednesdayMarshawn LynchRBSeahawksClayCounty
Lynch (non-injury) didn't partake in practice Wednesday, the Seahawks' official site reports.
Owners have little to worry about, as the Seahawks hold Lynch on the sideline during the first practice of each week. Although he represents one of the NFL's standout running backs, he hasn't topped 100 yards rushing since Week 1, which is a direct result of Russell Wilson's prowess as a runner. In the last three contests, Lynch's output has thus suffered, with an average of 15 carries for 62 yards per game, while totaling eight receptions (on 10 targets) for 64 yards and a touchdown catch. Expect him to make his presence felt in drills in short order.
Wed Oct 2219:39Miller (ankle) remains sidelinedZach MillerTESeahawksFree Agent
Miller (ankle) remains sidelined, the Seahawks' official site reports.
On the plus side, Luke Willson practiced fully Wednesday, so the Seahawks' tight end depth should get a boost for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Wed Oct 2219:30Brown (hamstring) practiced WednesdayVincent BrownWRChargersFree Agent
Brown (hamstring) practiced Wednesday, reports.
Brown thus has a chance to return to action as soon as Sunday against the Browns, but he has much to prove in a Raiders' uniform before re-entering the fantasy wideout discussion.
Wed Oct 2219:27Tuck (knee) practiced WednesdayJustin TuckDEGiantsFree Agent
Tuck (knee) practiced Wednesday, reports.
More on Tuck's Week 8 status in the coming days, but after missing this past Sunday's game against the Cardinals, the DE's presence on the field Wednesday bodes well for his chances of returning to the mix Sunday against the Browns.
Wed Oct 2219:26McCown (thumb) limited in Wednesday's practiceJosh McCownQBBearsFree Agent
McCown (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of FOX Sports 1 reports.
According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, McCown, starter Mike Glennon, and third-stringer Mike Kafka rotated through passing drills. However, there's little doubt that upon receiving clearance to suit up, McCown will don a headset due to Glennon's steady, yet unspectacular play.
Wed Oct 2219:24Reece (quadriceps) practiced WednesdayMarcel ReeceRBRaidersFree Agent
Reece (quadriceps) practiced Wednesday, reports.
Reece was held out of action this past week as a precautionary measure, but his presence at practice Wednesday bodes well for his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Browns.
Wed Oct 2219:12Johnson (ankle) limited at practice WednesdayAndre JohnsonWRTexansThe Squirts
Johnson (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Texans' official site reports.
More on Johnson's status in the coming days, but we suspect that the wideout's limitations Wednesday are maintenance-related, rather than indicative of any injury setbacks.
Wed Oct 2218:59Berry (ankle) limited at practice WednesdayEric BerryDBChiefsFree Agent
Berry (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Per the Kansas City Star, Berry worked with the scout team Wednesday and is slated to be re-evaluated by the team in advance of Thursday's session.
Wed Oct 2218:59Britt (ankle) didn't practice WednesdayKenny BrittWRTitansFree Agent
Britt (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of reports.
Britt was held in check by the Seahawks' stellar secondary during Sunday's victory, but the ankle was likely still a bother. Meanwhile, over his last four games, he's averaged a modest line -- 3.3 receptions (on 5.5 targets) for 45 yards per outing -- with one touchdown to show for his effort. If he remains healthy enough to play Sunday at Kansas City, deep league owners may want to consider his services.
Wed Oct 2218:52Hemingway (hamstring) did not practice WednesdayJunior HemingwayWRChiefsFree Agent
Hemingway (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, the team's official site reports.
Per the Chiefs' official site, Hemingway is doing better than expected at this stage, but for now, the wideout's strained hamstring clouds his Week 8 status.
Wed Oct 2218:48Avery (groin) listed as out for Sunday's game against RamsDonnie AveryWRColtsFree Agent
Avery (groin) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Rams, the Chiefs' official site reports.
That Avery is already ruled out at this stage of the week suggests that he is closer to week-to-week than day-to-day at this stage.
Wed Oct 2218:46Charles (head) not listed on Chiefs' Wednesday practice particip...Jamaal CharlesRBChiefsFree Agent
Charles (head) is not listed on the Chiefs' Wednesday practice participation/injury report, the team's official site reports.
Though Charles absorbed a helmet-to-helmet hit in the second quarter of this past Sunday's game against the Chargers, he finished the contest, and the fact that he is not listed on the Chiefs' injury report Wednesday indicates that his Week 8 playing status is secure.
