QLeSean McCoy RB BUF (10) 4 hours ago
McCoy (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against Miami, but could be on 25-35 play pitch count, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
While previously there had been speculation that the running back would be ruled out for the contest, McCoy returned to practice Friday on a limited basis. Fantasy owners should still see how he fares in pregame warmups, but it's looking like he'll be active for the game.
OUTVincent Valentine DL NE (9) 10 hours ago
Valentine (back) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Valentine suffered a back injury in Week 4's game and has not yet been able to return to full participation in practice. His absence will thin the Patriots' depth along the defensive line.
OUTWoodrow Hamilton DL NE (9) 10 hours ago
Hamilton (shoulder) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's contest against the Steelers.
Hamilton was a limited participant in practice all week with a shoulder injury suffered in Week 6, and apparently isn't recovering well enough to suit up against the Steelers. With Hamilton and defensive tackle Vince Valentine out Sunday, the Patriots will be short-handed along their defensive line.
Joe Callahan QB NO (5) 13 hours ago
Callahan has been waived by the Saints, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Callahan had an impressive preseason with the Packers, but was let go and subsequently picked up by the Saints before being waived Saturday. If Callahan clears waivers, he will yet again become a free agent, and if not, he will likely remain on the Saints' practice squad.
Chris McCain LB NO (5) 13 hours ago
McCain has been signed from the Saints' practice squad, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
McCain's signing is likely due to the Saints being very thin at linebacker, and he will provide necessary depth for them as long as Stephone Anthony and Dannell Ellerbe remain out with injuries.
Freddie Martino WR TB (6) 13 hours ago
Martino has been promoted to the Buccaneers' active roster, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Martino will become the Buccaneers' No. 5 wide receiver once Louis Murphy is able to return from the PUP list, but does not stand in line to see a lot of looks for the remainder of the season barring injuries to pass-catchers in front of him.
Donteea Dye WR TB (6) 13 hours ago
Dye has been waived by the Buccaneers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Dye being waived clears a roster spot for wide receiver Freddie Martino, who will take Dye's place as the Buccaneers' No. 5 pass-catcher.
Julian Stanford LB NYJ (11) 13 hours ago
Stanford has been signed from the Jets' practice squad, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Stanford will look to provide depth to a thin linebacker corps for the Jets. Erin Henderson is likely out for the year after being placed on the NFI and Darron Lee remains sidelined with an ankle injury, so Stanford could see some immediate action in Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.
Victor Ochi LB NYJ (11) 13 hours ago
Ochi has been signed from the Jets' practice squad, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Ochi's signing comes in the wake of linebacker Erin Henderson being placed on the Non-Football Injury list, which will likely hold him out the rest of the year. Ochi will provide depth for a decimated linebacker corps for the Jets.
QTravis Benjamin WR SD (11) 13 hours ago
Benjamin (knee), despite being listed as questionable, is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Falcons, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports
Benjamin is therefore closer to probable than questionable, and will look to do damage against an Atlanta team that ranks bottom-ten in the league in passing yards allowed per game.
