Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice Wednesday. It looks like Ball will miss another week, but we’ll continue to monitor his progress. Ronnie Hillman is a strong play against a Patriots defense that has struggled against running backs this season.

Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) did not practice Wednesday. The injury isn’t considered to be serious, but we’ll monitor his practice activity this week. If he can’t play, Jeremy Hill would be a very good start against the Jaguars. The Bengals play early on Sunday.

Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday. It looks like Brown is on track to play in Week 9. His presence will put a dent in Branden Oliver’s workload, though we expect Oliver to remain the lead back.

Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Forsett says he has a “minor” ankle injury and is expected to play in Week 9. He finished Sunday’s game against the Bengals, so we believe him. Lorenzo Taliaferro appears to be the team’s RB2 at this point.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Martin’s injury could open the door for Charles Sims, who is a good bet to be active in Week 9. The Bucs may want to proceed with caution, but a Martin injury would press Sims into service sooner rather than later.
