10/22/2014 Brandon Flowers, CB
Flowers has been ruled out of Thursday's game at Denver with a concussion.

Analysis: Flowers was hurt in a 23-20 home loss to Kansas City on Sunday.
10/22/2014 Chandler Jones, DE
Jones is expected to be sidelined for about a month with a hip injury.

Analysis: Jones is the team leader with 4 1/2 sacks. His absence will surely be missed.
10/22/2014 Quincy Enunwa, WR
Enunwa says he is happy to move forward after a domestic violence charge against him was conditionally dismissed in court last week.

Analysis: Police said Enunwa pulled a woman off a bed in a hotel on Aug. 31 in Florham Park and she injured her head and finger. The woman decided to not pursue the case. Enunwa, not eligible to play in a game while on the practice squad, says Wednesday that he didn't allow the case to "affect any part of my life."
10/22/2014 Ike Taylor, CB
Taylor returned to practice on Wednesday just one month after breaking his right arm.

Analysis: Taylor practiced in a limited capacity, running sprints and doing individual drills. He suffered a compound fracture in his right arm when teammate Lawrence Timmons slammed into it with his helmet while trying to make a tackle in a victory over Carolina on Sept. 21. The 34-year-old said there remains no timetable for his return and he is awaiting clearance from doctors before he can take part in a full practice.
10/22/2014 T.J. McDonald, S
McDonald did not practice due to concussion-like symptoms.

Analysis: McDonald's presence was a bit of a surprise on the injury report Wednesday, given coach Jeff Fisher made no mention of it and McDonald played every snap in last week's victory over Seattle.
10/22/2014 Jake Locker, QB
Locker practiced on Wednesday but his status for this weekend's game against Houston remains unclear.

Analysis: Locker left practice without stopping for his weekly meeting with the media. Coach Ken Whisenhunt says the quarterback didn't take questions because the Titans will know more about his status Thursday.
10/22/2014 Luke Kuechly, LB
Panthers coach Ron Rivera says the NFL has informed him that Luke Kuechly was wrongfully ejected from Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers for contact with an official. Rivera said Wednesday he received a memo from the league that also indicated the middle linebacker will not be fined.

Analysis: Kuechly, one of the team's defensive leaders, was ejected late in the third quarter of a 38-17 loss when he shrugged off an official who was pulling him from behind. Kuechly said he thought he was being pulled away by a Packers player. Rivera said he would like to see such calls reviewable by replay officials and hopes the league will consider changing that rule during the offseason.
10/22/2014 Jamaal Charles, RB
The Kansas City Chiefs insisted Wednesday that Charles has passed a battery of tests and does not show signs of a concussion, one day after the star running back said he exhibited symptoms in last weekend's win over San Diego.

Analysis: Charles took a blow from Brandon Flowers when he dove into the endzone Sunday. Charles popped up and trotted off the field, and trainers met him on the sideline. He remained in the game.
10/22/2014 Colt McCoy, QB
McCoy remains the Washington Redskins starting quarterback as of "right now" - but the coach Jay Gruden called Robert Griffin III a "wild card" who still has a chance to start Monday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Gruden said Wednesday that Griffin still needs to be cleared for full contact and satisfy the coaches that he's ready in order to play. The coach said he'd like to make a final decision by the end of practice Thursday.
10/22/2014 Richard Gordon, TE
The Tennessee Titans have signed Gordon, filling the roster spot freed up by trading linebacker Akeem Ayers to the Patriots.

Analysis: The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Gordon has played 29 career games over three seasons with Oakland and Kansas City. A sixth-round draft pick out of Miami in 2011, Gordon spent his first two seasons in Oakland. The Titans placed tight end Craig Stevens on injured reserve last week.
10/22/2014 Mike Pouncey, C
The attorney for NFL offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey says no charges will filed against the twin brothers stemming from a July altercation at a Miami Beach nightclub.

Analysis: Lawyer Jeffrey Ostrow said in an email Wednesday that Miami-Dade County prosecutors informed him the brothers won't be charged in the fight at Cameo nightclub.
10/22/2014 Maurkice Pouncey, C
The attorney for NFL offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey says no charges will filed against the twin brothers stemming from a July altercation at a Miami Beach nightclub.

Analysis: Lawyer Jeffrey Ostrow said in an email Wednesday that Miami-Dade County prosecutors informed him the brothers won't be charged in the fight at Cameo nightclub.
10/22/2014 Glenn Foster, DE
Foster went down with a knee injury against the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: His status is uncertain for Week 8.
10/22/2014 Morgan Cox, C
Cox has a torn ACL.

Analysis: Cox is out for the season.
10/21/2014 Jeremy Kerley, WR
The New York Jets have signed Kerley to a four-year contract extension. Kerley, a fifth-round draft pick in 2011, was due to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. The move, announced by the team Tuesday, comes three days after the Jets completed a deal to acquire Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks for a conditional draft pick. The team did not disclose financial terms.

Analysis: Kerley, 25, has led the Jets in receptions the last two seasons, and has 22 catches for 201 yards and a touchdown this year. He has seen his role diminish in recent weeks with just seven catches in New York's last four games, but Kerley is one of the league's top receivers on third-down plays.
10/21/2014 Phillip Tanner, RB
A person familiar with the discussions tells The Associated Press that the Buffalo Bills have agreed to sign Tanner. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday because the Bills have not announced the move.

Analysis: Tanner spent the previous three seasons playing for Dallas. He fills a big hole in Buffalo after the Bills lost co-starters C.J. Spiller (collarbone) and Fred Jackson (groin) to injuries in a 17-16 win over Minnesota on Sunday. Tanner had 56 carries for 149 yards and two touchdowns, and nine catches for 93 yards in 40 games with Dallas. He also has special teams experience.
10/21/2014 DeAndre Hopkins, WR
Hopkins had six catches for 108 yards in Monday's loss at Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Hopkins has hauled in at least five receptions in four of the last five games. He's been targeted 42 times compared to Andre Johnson's 63.
10/21/2014 Le'Veon Bell, RB
Bell had 145 total yards and a touchdown in Monday's win over Houston.

Analysis: Bell has compiled at least 100 yards from scrimmage in every game thus far. He's only found the end zone twice, though.
10/21/2014 Antonio Brown, WR
Brown hauled in nine more catches for 90 yards and added a three-yard TD pass in Monday's win over Houston.

Analysis: Brown leads all wideouts with 50 receptions and 719 yards. There isn't a more consistent receiver in the game right now.
10/21/2014 Arian Foster, RB
Foster ran for 102 yards and caught a one-yard TD pass in Monday night's loss in Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Foster has now gone over 100 yards in all but one of six games thus far. Tales of his demise were greatly exaggerated during the preseason.
