Date Player
10/31/2014 Mark Ingram, RB
Ingram turned in another strong performance carrying 30 times for 100 yards and two TDs as New Orleans defeated the Carolina Panthers 28-10 Thursday night to take over first place in the NFC South.

Analysis: Ingram has rushed for 272 yards and three TDs in the last two games. He is blossoming into a solid No. 1 fantasy back, but always be cautious with New Orleans running backs.
10/30/2014 Greg Hardy, DE
A person familiar with the situation says Hardy's domestic violence appeal trial set for Nov. 17 has been postponed until after the NFL season, meaning his career with Carolina could be over. The person said the new trial date has not been set. The person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the decision has not been publicly announced.

Analysis: The Panthers placed Hardy on the exempt-commissioner's permission list on Sept. 17 after being convicted in July of assault on a female and communicating threats. The NFL and the Panthers have said Hardy would not play until after his trial was resolved, although he is still collecting $13.1 million this season as Carolina's franchise player.
10/30/2014 Pierre Thomas, RB
Thomas was inactive for Thursday's game versus Carolina.

Analysis: Thomas continues to be hampered by a shoulder injury.
10/30/2014 Khiry Robinson, RB
Robinson is inactive for New Orleans for Thursday's game against Carolina.

Analysis: Robinson had been listed as questionable with a forearm injury.
10/30/2014 Jason Verrett, CB
The San Diego Chargers will lose Verrett for at least one game and possibly longer with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Analysis: Verrett originally hurt his shoulder in a victory at Oakland on Oct. 12 - which he sealed with a last-minute interception - and aggravated it in a loss at Denver last Thursday night.
10/30/2014 Jason Kelce, C
Kelce made it through his third straight day of practice Thursday, making it more likely he will return from a sports hernia injury in this weekend's game against the Houston Texans.

Analysis: The center has been out since having surgery at the end of September. He was cautious Thursday when asked about the possibility of playing.
10/30/2014 Brian Quick, WR
Quick is out for the season, and will undergo shoulder surgery.

Analysis: The wide receiver started the season strong with 14 catches and 173 yards in two games. He followed that with 11 receptions, 202 yards and three touchdowns in the next five. The shoulder injury may have curtailed a promising season.
10/29/2014 Donald Brown, RB
Brown has been cleared to return to practice after missing three games with a concussion.

Analysis: Brown practiced Wednesday for the first time since being injured in a victory against the New York Jets on Oct. 5.
10/29/2014 Geno Smith, QB
Smith, benched in favor of Michael Vick, has a shoulder injury that makes his availability uncertain for the team's game at Kansas City on Sunday.

Analysis: Smith says he hurt his right shoulder a few plays before throwing his third interception against Buffalo last Sunday, but says it didn't affect his play. Both Smith and coach Rex Ryan think the quarterback should be ready to play if needed against the Chiefs, but Matt Simms - currently on the practice squad - could be elevated to the active roster if Smith can't go.
10/29/2014 L.J. Fort, LB
The Seattle Seahawks have signed Fort and veteran fullback Will Tukuafu.

Analysis: Seattle announced the signings Wednesday, a day after clearing the two roster spots by releasing wide receiver Phil Bates and tight end Brett Brackett.
10/29/2014 Will Tukuafu, RB
The Seattle Seahawks have signed Tukuafu and linebacker L.J. Fort.

Analysis: Seattle announced the signings Wednesday, a day after clearing the two roster spots by releasing wide receiver Phil Bates and tight end Brett Brackett. Tukuafu had spent his career with San Francisco before being placed on injured reserve at the end of training camp and later released.
10/29/2014 Patrick Peterson, CB
Peterson has cleared concussion protocols and will likely play against Dallas on Sunday.

Analysis: Peterson was injured in the second quarter against Philadelphia last Sunday when he collided with teammate Deone Bucannon and Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin. Peterson lay on the field for several minutes before woozily walking off and into the locker room. He did not return to the game.
10/29/2014 Robert Griffin III, QB
Griffin III's practice status has been upgraded, but it's still not certain when he will make his first start in his return from an ankle injury.

Analysis: Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Griffin went from "limited to "full" during Wednesday's light practice. The coach said Griffin will get a few more snaps with the first-team unit this week and "there's a chance" Griffin could start Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
10/29/2014 David Foucault, T
Foucault, who played his college football in Montreal, Canada and made the Panthers roster after a minicamp tryout back in the spring, will make his NFL starting debut at left tackle with Byron Bell out with an injured knee and elbow.

Analysis: The 6-foot-8, 305-pound Foucault saw extended action last week against Seattle at both tackle positions after Bell and right tackle Nate Chandler went down with injuries at various points of the game.
10/29/2014 Alex Smith, QB
Smith plans to practice Wednesday despite spraining his troublesome throwing shoulder in last weekend's victory over the St. Louis Rams.

Analysis: Smith landed on his right shoulder shortly before halftime. He received treatment in the locker room and played the entire second half, complaining only later of a bit of soreness. The Chiefs play the New York Jets on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
10/29/2014 Deontae Skinner, LB
The New England Patriots have signed defensive lineman Alan Branch and released Skinner.

Analysis: Skinner signed with the Patriots as an undrafted rookie from Mississippi State on May 27. He had one start in seven games and made 10 tackles on defense and three on special teams. His release comes after the Patriots traded for linebackers Akeem Ayers from Tennessee last week and Jonathan Casillas from Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
10/29/2014 Alan Branch, DT
The New England Patriots have signed Branch and released linebacker Deontae Skinner.

Analysis: Branch was cut by Buffalo on Aug. 24, one day after being arrested on a drunken-driving charge. He spent the previous four seasons with Arizona after being drafted in the second round in 2007, then played two years for Seattle. He started 47 of his 94 games and had eight sacks. With Buffalo last year he had 39 tackles in 16 games.
10/29/2014 Justin Durant, LB
The Dallas Cowboys have put Durant on season-ending injured reserve with a torn arm muscle.

Analysis: Durant tore his right biceps in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 20-17 loss to Washington in overtime on Monday. He was leading Dallas with 61 tackles. The 29-year-old Durant is in the last year of a two-year contract. He spent four seasons in Jacksonville and two in Detroit before joining the Cowboys.
10/29/2014 Vontaze Burfict, LB
Burfict had surgery to clean out his left knee Wednesday and will miss at least the next two games.

Analysis: The Pro Bowl linebacker hurt the knee during a 27-24 win over Baltimore on Sunday. He came out of the game, had the knee examined, then returned and finished the game. The knee continued bothering him and he had a test that showed a piece of something floating in the knee, coach Marvin Lewis said.
10/29/2014 Alan Ball, CB
The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed Ball on injured reserve with a bicep injury.

Analysis: Losing Ball for the season is the latest setback for Jacksonville's improving defense. The Jaguars (1-7) already lost starting linebacker Paul Posluszny for the season with a torn chest muscle and defensive end Andre Branch for at least five more weeks with a groin injury.
