Nate Washington WR TEN 10 Hrs
Washington had one reception on one target for nine yards in Tennessee's Week 7 loss to Washington.
Washington continues to disappoint, as he now has just 13 catches (on 29 targets) for 169 yards through seven games. Despite still being listed as a starter on Tennessee's depth chart, Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter are the only two wideouts that offer true value at this point in time.
Jackie Battle RB TEN 10 Hrs
Battle had two carries for three yards and two catches (on two targets) for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.
While starter Shonn Greene (hamstring) has been sidelined, it's been rookie Bishop Sankey that's dominated the backfield touches. Due to his limited opportunities, Battle offers minimal value.
Trindon Holliday WR NYG 11 Hrs
Holliday is expected to sign with the Buccaneers sometime this week, Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times reports.
Holliday was a member of the Giants during training camp but ultimately failed to make the team. As a return specialist, Holliday has the ability to claim both returning gigs in Tampa Bay and will have an opportunity to do so before season's end.
Derrick Coleman RB SEA 12 Hrs
Coleman (foot) will likely miss 4-to-6 weeks, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports.
Coleman broke his foot during pregame warmups Sunday, enabling Robert Turbin to step in as the starting fullback. The Seahawks are yet to sign another fullback, but they'll likely do so at some point in the near future.
Preston Brown LB BUF 12 Hrs
Brown logged six tackles in Sunday's win over the Vikings. He was on the field for all 64 of the team's defensive plays, The Buffalo News reports.
While the tackle total isn't great, it's news that Brown received all the snaps even though the Bills tend to use four linebackers in a rotation. Keith Rivers was the one who too a back seat Sunday, receiving only a handful of plays. On the season, Brown has 51 total tackles already, though he's failed to record a pick, sack, or pass defensed.
Byron Maxwell DB SEA 13 Hrs
Maxwell (calf) could return to practice this week.
Maxwell suffered the injury during the team's loss to the Cowboys, and he did not play Sunday against St. Louis. If the veteran returns to practice this week, he stands a good chance to play against Carolina on Sunday. On the season, Maxwell has 26 tackles, one pick and five passes defended.
Tharold Simon DB SEA 13 Hrs
Simon (ankle) has a chance to practice this week.
Simon exited Sunday's loss to the Rams with an ankle injury, but it does not appear to be anything too serious. Prior to departing, the second-year corner recorded one tackle.
Dion Jordan DL MIA 13 Hrs
Jordan was reinstated from the suspended list Monday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Jordan was suspended for violating the league's Policy and Program of Substances of Abuse policy. He'll be eligible to play against the Jaguars on Sunday, but it remains to be seen what type of workload he'll receive right away.
Calvin Johnson WR DET 14 Hrs2 Comments
Johnson's (ankle) status for Sunday's game against Atlanta remains up in the air, the Detroit Free Press reports. "It's not going to be a thing of degrees," coach Jim Caldwell said. "It's when they say he's cleared and he's ready to go and he's feeling great. When the doctors give us that OK, that's when it's going to happen. And there's not going to be a whole lot of in-betweens."
Johnson missed his second straight game Sunday as he continues to nurse an ankle injury. Caldwell refused to specify how close Johnson was to playing against the Saints, but he said he "absolutely" expects Johnson to travel to London with the team for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. Whether he'll play in that contest remains to be seen, however, and a decision likely won't come until much later in the week. The decision is obviously difficult for the Lions, and it's complicated by the team's looming Week 9 bye.
Toby Gerhart RB JAC 14 Hrs2 Comments
Gerhart (foot), who missed the last two games, will be evaluated on Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Gerhart is nursing a foot/ankle injury, which he re-injured in Week 5 against the Steelers. Jacksonville has turned to the trio of Storm Johnson, Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman in his absence, and Robinson rushed for 125 yards in Sunday's victory over Cleveland. That's more yards than Gerhart has in total this season, so it's somewhat unclear what Gerhart's role will be when he's back in the mix.
