Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) took limited practice reps again Friday. Griffin is not expected to play on Monday night. Colt McCoy will get the start. He completed 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in Week 7, though his numbers were inflated by a 70-yard catch and run by Pierre Garcon.

Titans QB Jake Locker (right hand, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. Zach Mettenberger will get the start for the Titans. He has a strong arm, which may be good for deep threat Justin Hunter.

Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (right thumb, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 8. We’re expecting Mike Glennon to continue to start for the Bucs.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday. No worries here. The Cowboys don’t play until Monday night, so Romo was just getting his usual rest on Thursday.

Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. Bernard will play in a tough matchup against the Ravens. He may not find much room to run, but he racked up 19 catches for 150 yards and a TD in his three meetings with the Ravens. The Bengals will be without A.J. Green, however, so the defense will be able to focus its attention on stopping Bernard.

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, doubtful) missed practice again Friday and is doubtful for Week 8. The doubtful tag means that he's very likely out for Week 8. That makes Theo Riddick (hamstring, probable) a Sneaky Start in a great matchup against Atlanta. With Bush sidelined against Minnesota, Riddick had eight touches for 81 yards and a TD in the first half of the Minnesota game, before he injured his hamstring.

Seahawks RB Derrick Coleman (foot, out) was ruled out for Week 8.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Rams RB Benny Cunningham (knee, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. It looks like Cunningham will be around to complicate matters for Tre Mason owners. The Rams say they’re going to use all three of their running backs.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. Ellington should be fine to face the Eagles in Week 8.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Texans RB Arian Foster (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Friday. Foster should continue to roll. He has rushed for 100-plus yards in five of six games this season.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 8. Gerhart will be in the mix for carries, though HC Gus Bradley said that Denard Robinson will get the start against the Dolphins.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Chiefs RB Cyrus Gray (hand, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 8.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. It looks like Greene is back. His return might put a dent in Bishop Sankey’s weekly upside. The Titans have stubbornly given him carries when he’s active.

Friday, October 24, 2014, 6:26pm

Bills RB Fred Jackson (groin, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 8. Jackson is expected to miss around four weeks with the groin injury. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown are likely to split the workload with Jackson sidelined and C.J. Spiller out for most of the year. Dixon was working with the starters in practice, and should see more carries and most of the goal line work, while Brown would serve as the pass-catching speed back.
