QRichie Incognito BUF (10) 1 hour ago
Incognito missed Thursday's practice session due to illness.
The Bills have a number of sick and injured players that will compile a very large final injury report come Friday, though there's not much concern yet that the team's starting left guard is in jeopardy of missing Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Adolphus Washington DL BUF (10) 1 hour ago
Washington, who missed Wednesday's practice due to illness, was able to return for Thursday's session.
Washington's status for Sunday's game against the Patriots never seemed much in doubt, but with the quick return he may not even carry a designation once Friday's injury report comes out.
QCordarrelle Patterson WR MIN (6) 1 hour ago
Patterson was unable to practice Thursday due to a concussion.
Previously unreported, Patterson has entered the NFL's protocol for head injuries. With its numerous hurdles to receive clearance for game action -- the last of which is a fruitful meeting with an independent neurologist -- his availability for Week 8 is certainly up in the air. Fortunately for the wideout, he has more time than normal to recover due to a Monday night contest with the Bears.
OUTC.J. Anderson RB DEN (11) 2 hours ago
Anderson -- who is dealing with a right meniscus injury -- will undergo an arthroscopic procedure Thursday to address the issue, the Denver Post reports.
While Anderson landing on IR remains a possibility, at this time there is not yet a concrete timetable for his recovery. Added clarity on that front is slated to arrive after the procedure has been completed. "It's my understanding we should know something tonight, after they get through with what's going on," coach Gary Kubiak noted Thursday. In Anderson's indefinite (and possibly lengthy) absence, Devontae Booker is in line to step in as the Broncos' lead back.
QMarcus Burley DB CLE (13) 2 hours ago
Burley (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday.
Burley missed last week's contest, and without practicing in full yet this week, he could be on track to sit out Sunday's matchup with the Jets.
QJeremy Langford RB CHI (9) 2 hours ago
Langford (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
In the midst of a 4-to-6 recovery timetable, Langford appears to be testing out his previously sprained ankle. It's unclear if a return is nigh, but two practices remain to log a full session. If he's unable to roll Monday versus the Vikings, the tandem of Jordan Howard and Ka'Deem Carey will man the Bears' backfield.
QClinton McDonald DL TB (6) 2 hours ago
McDonald (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, Jenna Laines of ESPN.com reports.
McDonald missed Week 7's win over the 49ers due to a hamstring aliment. His limited participation the past two days makes him questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Raiders, but his status in Friday's practice session will be key in determining his availability. Should he be ruled out, look for Akeem Spence to get the start.
QTerrelle Pryor WR CLE (13) 2 hours ago
Pryor (hamstring) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.
Pryor has been limited at practice all week, but coach Hue Jackson said there's a "good chance" he plays against the Jets. The former Raiders' quarterback played just 31 snaps in Week 7, as it was clear the team didn't want him to push his hamstring too much. He may be on a snap count again, so that's something to be aware of when making lineup decisions. We should know more via Friday's injury report.
Phillip Gaines DB KC (5) 2 hours ago
Gaines (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday.
Gaines missed Week 7's win over the Saints due to swelling in his knee. Now a full participant in practice, expect the cornerback to be out on the field this Sunday against the Colts. Should he see his reps monitored, it will be Steven Nelson who sees extended action.
QJamaal Charles RB KC (5) 2 hours ago
Charles (knee) remained limited at practice Thursday.
While Charles' availability for Sunday's game against the Colts does not appear in great danger, how he might be used in Week 8 remains unclear, with Spencer Ware still running well and Charcandrick West also in the Chiefs' backfield mix.
