Giovani Bernard RB CIN 22 Hrs9 Comments

Bernard (ribs) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Bengals' official site reports.

More on Bernard's status Thursday, but so far there has been nothing to suggest that his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens is in any danger.

Emmanuel Lamur LB CIN 22 Hrs

Lamur (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Richard Skinner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

With Rey Maualuga expected to be out for a couple weeks, Lamur's return will be key for the Bengals' linebacking depth. If he continues to participate in practice, he should hopefully see snaps in Cincinnati's key game against the Ravens.

John Brown WR ARI 22 Hrs

Brown (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Listed on the injury report for the first time in his career last week with a hamstring concern, Brown garnered his typical workload (43 of Arizona's 76 offensive snaps) Sunday in Oakland but recorded just two receptions (on five targets) for 41 yards. However, instead of full practices this week, the rookie receiver only fit in some drills, which should spur owners to watch his status closely as the week unfolds.

Ike Taylor DB PIT 22 Hrs1 Comment

Taylor (arm) was limited in practice, Scott Brown of ESPN reports.

This is Taylor's first participation in practice since his injury, so it seems the veteran is continuing his recovery from a major injury.

Andre Ellington RB ARI 22 Hrs6 Comments

Ellington (ribs/foot) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Ellington is now sans walking boot, which is an encouraging development regarding his season-long foot concern. After racking up a season-high 160 yards from scrimmage (88 rushing and 72 receiving) Sunday at Oakland, he appears to be rounding into the form displayed during his dynamic rookie campaign last year. Take note that his 13th carry Sunday against the Eagles will match his entire workload from a season ago, which makes his 3.7 YPC through seven games acceptable for fantasy ventures.

Ryan Shazier LB PIT 22 Hrs

Shazier (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Scott Brown of ESPN.

After a full week of limited practice before the Texans game, Shazier was inactive Monday and is now back to sitting out practice. It was hoped the rookie could return in time to play the Colts Sunday, but this should significantly cast doubt on that idea.

Owen Daniels TE BAL 22 Hrs

Daniels (knee) did not practice Wednesday, the Ravens' official site reports.

Though it's not unusual for Daniels to get days off for rest purposes these days, a knee issue is cited for his absence Wednesday, so his Week 8 status is worth tracking in advance of Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Juwan Thompson RB DEN 22 Hrs

Thompson (knee) is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Chargers, the Broncos' official site reports.

With Montee Ball still out, Thompson is once again in line to work behind Ronnie Hillman in Denver's backfield on Thursday night.

Brandon McManus K DEN 22 Hrs

McManus (groin) practiced fully Wednesday and is listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Chargers, the Broncos' official site reports.

McManus will be out there if you need him Thursday, but through six games to date, he has attempted just seven field goals (making six), courtesy of the Broncos' efficient offense.

Marcus Easley WR BUF 23 Hrs

Easley (knee) turned in a limited practice Wednesday, the Bills' official site reports.

Easley remains iffy for Sunday's game against the Jets, but Wednesday's limited participation suggests that he is inching toward a return to the Bills' depth wideout mix.
