Paul Richardson WR SEA 14 Hrs
Richardson caught four passes for 33 yards in his most playing time this season in Sunday's loss to the Rams.
Richardson played 43 snaps, more than he had in the first five games (38). He was targeted five times, though none were downfield. With Percy Harvin out of the picture, Richardson is probably the team's best downfield threat. But until the Seahawks start incorporating that into their playbook, Richardson probably won't do much more than he did Sunday even if he emerges as the No. 3 receiver. One positive, though, is fellow speedster Ricardo Lockette was not targeted and fellow rookie Kevin Norwood saw one target on eight snaps.
Leodis McKelvin DB BUF 14 Hrs
McKelvin had four tackles and two interceptions in Sunday's win over Minnesota. He was on the field for 57 of the team's 64 defensive snaps, The Buffalo News reports.
McKelvin seems to have won a full-time starting job back, while being spelled only occasionally by Corey Graham as opposed to being part of a three-man rotation like he was earlier in the season. McKelvin now has 36 tackles, four picks, and five passes defensed, definitely good IDP numbers from the cornerback spot.
Brandon McManus K DEN 14 Hrs
McManus (strained right groin) did not practice Monday, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.
We'll track his status in advance of Thursday's game against the Chargers, but as long as the Broncos don't sign another kicker, we'll operate under the assumption that McManus will continue to kick for the team in Week 8.
Donald Brown RB SD 15 Hrs
Though the Chargers did not practice Monday, if they had, Brown (concussion) would not have participated, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The same applies to fellow RB Ryan Mathews, with both backs looking iffy, at best, for Thursday's game against the Broncos at this stage.
Vincent Jackson WR TB 15 Hrs
Jackson (ribs) was among the Bucs who did not practice Monday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
More on Jackson's status no later than Wednesday's practice, but at this stage, there is nothing to suggest that his availability for Sunday's game against Minnesota is in any danger.
Andre Ellington RB ARI 15 Hrs5 Comments
Coach Bruce Arians confirmed Monday that Ellington came out of Week 7's game with sore ribs, but noted that the running back did not suffer any structural damage, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official reports.
Ellington's practice reps have been managed of late in any case, so expect him to be limited (or even sit out) Wednesday's session, but so far there is nothing to suggest that the running back's Week 8 availability will be impacted by his rib issue.
Martavis Bryant WR PIT 15 Hrs
Bryant is slated to make his season debut Monday against the Texans, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.
At 6-4, 211 pounds, Bryant could develop into a red zone threat for the Steelers in time, but for now a wait-and-see approach is in order for the 2014 first-rounder.
Jake Locker QB TEN 15 Hrs
Locker (right thumb) is slated to throw on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.
The Titans will then see how Locker responds on Wednesday, but the hope remains that the QB could be available for this coming Sunday's contest against the Texans.
Jerrell Freeman LB IND 15 Hrs
Freeman suffered a hip pointer in Sunday's win over the Bengals and will have an MRI, the Indianapolis Star reports.
The injury isn't thought to be serious but the need for an MRI is a concern. Freeman had six tackles in Sunday's win and an average of 6.3 tackles per game since missing four games due to a hamstring injury.
Reggie Wayne WR IND 15 Hrs
Coach Chuck Pagano relayed Monday that Wayne (elbow) has an MRI on tap, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.
The same applies to RB Trent Richardson, with both players thus far having downplayed the severity of their current ailments.
