Ike Taylor DB PIT 19 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 19 Hrs4 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 20 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 20 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 20 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 20 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 20 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.

Jason Verrett DB SD 20 Hrs

Verrett (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego reports.

Not having Verrett or Brandon Flowers, who is out with a concussion, would be disastrous for the Chargers as they take on the Bronco passing attack. Both have shined in their first year in San Diego, so the Bolts should be doing everything in their power to make sure at least Verrett can help the defense contain Peyton Manning.

Marquise Goodwin WR BUF 20 Hrs

Goodwin (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday,the Bills' official site reports.

After missing Week 7's game against the Vikings, Goodwin's status for Sunday's game against the Jets remains cloudy at this stage.

Taylor Thompson TE TEN 20 Hrs

Thompson (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.

This was the first participation in practice in two weeks for Thompson, so it's at least some progress for a player who hasn't seen game time since Week 3.
