Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Johnson is trending towards a game-time decision early on Sunday morning. Owners will have to be on their toes since the Lions kick off at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. If he plays, he should be in lineups given the great matchup and the Lions’ insistence that he isn’t going to play unless he’s a full go.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Jones should be fine for a tough matchup with the Lions. He has already said not to expect a lot of deep balls with the current state of the Atlanta offensive line.

Ravens WR Steve L Smith (not injury related) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. This was a “routine day off” per beat writer Jeff Zrebiec.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) took full practice reps again Thursday. Given the full participation, Watkins is looking good for Week 8.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) missed practice again Thursday. The Colts are calling Wayne “day to day,” so he could play through the injury this week. If not, Hakeem Nicks and Donte Moncrief would see additional playing time. Moncrief actually out-snapped Nicks in Week 7.

Bears TE Martellus Bennett (hamstring) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. The hamstring injury wasn’t apparent on Sunday, so we’re assuming Bennett will play in Week 8 against the Patriots. He returned to practice, which is a great sign.

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Clay has been bothered by the knee injury all season but he finally caught a TD against the Bears in Week 7.

Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Daniels was rested during the preseason for what was described as “leg soreness,” but it’s not clear if this injury has anything to do with that. We’ll monitor his progress this week, though OC Gary Kubiak said that Daniels is “fine.”

Vikings TE Chase Ford (foot) took full practice reps again Thursday.

Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. It looks like Graham escaped Week 7 without a setback. He played 41% of the snaps, or 30 plays in total. He’s likely to be limited again in Week 8 in what should be a high-scoring game against the Packers. We would recommend benching him for other good TE options until he shows he’s ready to produce. He’s currently our #8 ranked tight end.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ribs) took limited practice reps again Thursday. The team hasn’t expressed much concern about the injury, so we’re expecting he’ll play against the Rams.
