Week 8 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Thursday

Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. Brady should be fine to face the Bears.

Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) took limited practice reps Thursday. 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. HC Jay Gruden implied that Griffin may be back in Week 11.

Titans QB Jake Locker (right hand) took limited practice reps again Thursday. 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) took limited practice reps again Thursday. We’re expecting Mike Glennon to continue to start for the Bucs.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) missed practice Thursday. No worries here. The Cowboys don’t play until Monday night, so Romo is just getting his usual rest.
