Titans QB Jake Locker (right hand) did not practice Wednesday. Locker seems doubtful for Week 6 and is an untrustworthy start even if he does play. Charlie Whitehurst likely gets the start, though the 1-4 Titans might want to get a look at Zach Mettenberger.

Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (right thumb) did not practice Wednesday. McCown has apparently lost his job to Mike Glennon, per head coach Lovie Smith.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) did not practice Wednesday. This is a regular thing for Romo.

Vikings RB Matt Asiata (groin) practiced fully Wednesday. Asiata doesn’t seem to be in danger of missing a tough matchup against the Lions.

Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice Wednesday. Ball will reportedly miss at least two weeks, maybe longer. Ronnie Hillman and Juwan Thompson were active ahead of C.J. Anderson in Week 5, though Thompson’s role on special teams may have something to do with that. Hillman got 15 carries against the Cardinals, while Thompson got three carries for 15 yards and a TD. Anderson and Thompson will likely compete for snaps behind Hillman, who won’t be a full-time back.

Lions RB Joique Bell (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday. Bell is still navigating his way through the league’s concussion protocol, but it looks like he may be able to play in Week 6.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (knee, probable) practiced fully Wednesday.

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Bush downplayed the injury after the game, so we’ll see if he’s able to return to practice later in the week. He says he’s preparing as if he’ll play in Week 6, per beat writer Michael Rothstein. Theo Riddick is back at practice and would be a good handcuff for nervous Bush owners.

Bears RB Matt Forte (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. Forte is just getting a day of rest, though he did bang his hand in Week 5. We’ll monitor his practice activity throughout the week.

Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring, probable) practiced fully Wednesday. Foster should be fine to face a leaky Colts rush defense on Thursday night.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) practiced fully Wednesday. Gerhart’s ankle injury doesn’t appear to threaten his Week 6 status, but he is getting pushed by Storm Johnson and Denard Robinson for touches.

Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. This could be the opening that Bishop Sankey owners are waiting for. Stay tuned.

Bills RB Fred Jackson (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Jackson should be fine to face the Patriots. He has been a better start than C.J. Spiller thus far, and we expect that to continue as long as he’s reasonably healthy.

Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) did not practice Wednesday. It will very likely be Andre Williams carrying the mail in a great matchup against the Eagles.

Wednesday, October 8, 2014, 6:37pm

Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday. Johnson had a forgettable outing against the Chargers (22 total yards on eight touches) just like the rest of his teammates. After 41 touches in the first three games, Johnson has just 16 in his last two. Chris Ivory has taken over the lead back role.
