10/17/2017 Ezekiel Elliott, Dal, RB
Elliott has been granted another legal reprieve in the running back's fight to avoid a six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations. A federal judge granted a temporary restraining order blocking the league's suspension Tuesday night, clearing Elliott to play Sunday at San Francisco.

Analysis: This is certainly great news for Elliott and the Cowboys. Eliott is coming off his best game of the season, carrying 29 times for 116 yards in a loss to Green Bay on Oct. 8.
10/17/2017 Luke Joeckel, Sea, T
Joeckel is expected to miss at least four to five weeks after having surgery on his knee.

Analysis: Joeckel started the first five games of the season for Seattle while working back from a torn ACL sustained last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Joeckel signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks in March and was eased back into a full workload during the offseason. "We're going to be optimistic that he can make it back in four-five weeks. We'll see what happens," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.
10/17/2017 Deonte Thompson, Chi, WR
The Buffalo Bills have restocked their injury-thinned offense by signing receiver Deonte Thompson.

Analysis: Thompson has five-plus seasons of NFL experience and had 11 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown with Chicago before being released by the Bears last week. Thompson played his first two seasons with Baltimore and then had no catches in playing one game for Buffalo in 2014.
10/17/2017 DeMarco Murray, Ten, RB
Murray will play in Week 7 despite having a tight hamstring.

Analysis: He was seen limping on the field Monday night and ended up with seven fewer carries than Derrick Henry. The injury along with Henry rushing for 131 yards Monday would seem to make Murray a less attractive option this week, especially against a Browns defense which has been good against the run.
10/17/2017 Josh Lambo, Jax, K
The Jags signed Lambo to replace the ineffective Jason Myers.

Analysis: Lambo made 54 of 64 field goals (81.2 percent) and 70 of 78 extra points (89.7 percent) in two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers cut Lambo in September and went with rookie Younghoe Koo, who has since been released. Lambo was 2 for 2 in the preseason, with a longest of 53 yards. He will make his debut Sunday at Indianapolis.
10/17/2017 Jason Myers, Jax, K
The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with Myers, waiving him two days after he hooked two 54-yard field goals in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Analysis: Myers missed 12 extra points and 15 field goals in 38 career games. He was 0 for 3 from beyond 50 yards this season.
10/16/2017 Marlon Mack, Ind, RB
Marlon Mack ran for 18 yards on two carries Monday in the Indianapolis Colts' 36-22 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
10/16/2017 Arik Armstead, SF, DT
Armstead broke his hand during the 49ers' loss in Washington and will need surgery, coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday. The 2015 first-round pick has been placed on injured reserve.

Analysis: Armstead will miss significant time for a second straight season after having shoulder surgery that cost him the final eight games of 2016. He joins Tank Carradine (ankle) and Ronald Blair (wrist) as 49er defensive ends who are out for the season.
10/16/2017 Dustin Hopkins, Was, K
Hopkins has been placed on injured reserve due to a rotator muscle strain in his right hip.

Analysis: Nick Rose has been signed to take over the kicking duties from Hopkins, who could return late in the season. Hopkins is 9 for 11 on field goal tries while making 12 of 13 PAT attempts so far in 2017.
10/16/2017 Aaron Rodgers, GB, QB
Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Rodgers will have surgery on his broken right collarbone, and that his season could be over.

Analysis: McCarthy said Monday that the two-time NFL MVP would have surgery in the near future. He says that there is no timeline for his potential return. "The key is to get Aaron healthy, it's not to develop a timeline," McCarthy said. Rodgers got hurt in the first quarter of the 23-10 loss on Sunday at Minnesota. Brett Hundley is now the starting quarterback.
10/16/2017 Jordan Matthews, Buf, WR
Matthews has had the cast removed from his broken right thumb, though it remains uncertain when the starter can begin practicing.

Analysis: Coach Sean McDermott listed Matthews as day to day on Monday, when Buffalo held a brief practice upon returning from its bye week. McDermott said it was premature to determine whether Matthews would be cleared for practice this week or potentially play against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
10/16/2017 NaVorro Bowman, Oak, LB
Bowman has agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Raiders.

Analysis: Bowman earned first team All-Pro honors four times in his career, achieving it from 2011-13 and then again in 2015 after coming back from a devastating knee injury. Bowman then tore his Achilles tendon early last season and missed most of the year before coming back again this year. While he lacks some of the speed he had when he was younger, Bowman still could probably help a team at age 29.
10/16/2017 Jonathan Allen, Was, DT
Allen has a Lisfranc sprain in his foot and will miss some time, according to coach Jay Gruden.

Analysis: Allen could miss three or four weeks, Gruden said while providing injury updates Monday. Allen's injury pushes second-year lineman Anthony Lanier into an expanded role.
10/16/2017 Rob Kelley, Was, RB
Kelley will practice this week ahead of Monday's game in Philadelphia.

Analysis: Kelley began the season as Washington's top back, and his return could come at a good time with Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine struggling mightily last week against the 49ers, combining for 56 yards on 25 carries.
10/16/2017 Trevor Siemian, Den, QB
Siemian, who left Sunday's loss to the Giants briefly near the end of the second quarter with a left shoulder injury, is expected to start Sunday against the Chargers.

Analysis: Siemian, who threw for a career-best 376 yards as the Broncos' rally against the Giants came up short, next faces a Chargers team which ranks fourth in the NFL against the pass, yielding 186 yards per game.
10/16/2017 Case Keenum, Min, QB
Keenum will be back under center, starting for the Vikings in their Week 7 matchup with the Ravens.

Analysis: Keenum made his fourth start of the season this past Sunday against Green Bay with Sam Bradford ailing, throwing for 239 yards with a touchdown and interception with one of his top receivers (Stefon Diggs) out. The Ravens are fifth in the NFL against the pass, yielding an average of 189.5 yards and are second in the league with nine interceptions.
10/16/2017 Mohamed Sanu, Atl, WR
Sanu (hamstring) is expected to return to practice this week after not practicing at all last week and not playing against Miami.

Analysis: Sanu was originally expected to be sidelined two to three weeks when he was injured in Week 4. He has 16 catches for 163 yards and a touchdown in four games this season.
10/16/2017 Emmanuel Sanders, Den, WR
Sanders will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers with a sprained ankle.

Analysis: Sanders wasn't putting up great numbers with the Broncos struggling to find consistency from the quarterback position, but he's still a solid play in the right matchup when he returns.
10/16/2017 Jameis Winston, TB, QB
Winston (shoulder) reportedly will not throw again until later this week, and it still remains unclear if he will play Sunday.

Analysis: Winston left the field early in last Sunday's second quarter holding his right arm limp after throwing three consecutive incomplete passes and didn't return, though it was reported he could've returned. Former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick came in following Winston's injury and nearly rallied the Bucs to an improbable comeback win, finishing with 290 passing yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions for a 102.3 QB rating.
10/16/2017 Martavis Bryant, Pit, WR
Bryant reportedly requested a trade recently, but he seemed to shut down those reports.

Analysis: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported late Sunday that sources informed him of Bryant's trade request, adding that Steelers teammates and coaches are well aware that the receiver is unhappy. Bryant posted Sunday night on Twitter that he is happy to be in Pittsburgh. "Big win today and tomorrow right back to work tomorrow I am happy to be a steeler and can't wait to reach number 7 this year," Bryant tweeted hours after the Steelers' 19-13 victory over the Chiefs.
