Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) took limited practice reps Thursday. The Texans play on Monday night, so this isn’t too worrisome at this point in the week. Foster owners should pick up Alfred Blue if he’s available on the waiver wire.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) missed practice again Thursday. Gerhart is doubtful to return this week.

Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. If Greene remains out, then Bishop Sankey should continue to see extra work as the team’s feature back. His matchup against the Redskins isn’t favorable, but he’s usable as a flex/RB3 this week.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) took full practice reps again Thursday. Ingram should return to his lead back role, though he doesn’t have a good matchup against a stout Lions rush defense.

Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was ruled out for Week 7. Andre Williams should see 15-20 carries as the Giants’ feature back.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. OC Darrell Bevell said that he needs to do a better job of getting the ball to Lynch. Lynch has seen 15 or fewer carries five times since 2012 and in the following game he has averaged 20.4 carries.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Mathews still isn’t running on his injured knee. It looks like Branden Oliver will continue to be the lead back through Week 9, maybe longer. We were expecting Mathews to be further along in his recovery by now, but knee injuries are tricky. He was expected to miss 4-5 weeks, and he is now in the middle of the 5th week of his recovery.

Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Miller is a borderline RB1 now that Knowshon Moreno is out for the season. He should be fine to face the Bears.

Thursday, October 16, 2014, 6:18pm

Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (illness) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. No worries here. Murray should be in line for another huge workload against the Giants.

Panthers RB Darrin Reaves (calf) missed practice Thursday after taking limited reps Wednesday. Reaves is now looking doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Packers. Chris Ogbonnaya would back up Jonathan Stewart, who is expected to make his return this week.

Raiders RB Marcel Reece (quadricep) did not practice Wednesday.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Riddick’s fantasy value dried up with Reggie Bush’s return, but he gave a taste of what he’s capable of against the the Vikings in Week 6.

Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Stacy’s injury may open the door for Benny Cunningham and/or Tre Mason to see additional snaps in what has devolved into an ugly RBBC in St. Louis. Complicating matters, the matchup with the Seahawks isn’t good.
