Dolphins' DeVante Parker to test injured ankle Tuesday
Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker will test his injured ankle on Tuesday ahead of a Week 8 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football, reports Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald.
Parker has missed the past two games but it sounds like he's on the verge of a return, depending on how things go on Tuesday. Kenny Stills figures to see a slight downtick in targets once Parker is back.
In the three full games he's played this season, Parker has averaged 12.7 FanDuel points per game while seeing at least 8 targets and recording at least 69 receiving yards in each contest.
Bashaud Breeland (knee) expected to play for Washington Monday night
Washington Redskins defensive back Bashaud Breeland (knee) is "pushing to play" Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles, and will likely be active, reports NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
Per Garafolo, Breeland will likely play limited snaps on Monday night. With Josh Norman (ribs) out, Carson Wentz and the Eagles should be able to take advantage of Washington's banged-up secondary.
Breeland has 18 tackles (16 solo) and 4 pass deflections this season for a Washington secondary that entered Week 7 ranked 12th in schedule-adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.
Martavis Bryant reportedly won't be traded or suspended by Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers have "no plans" to trade or suspend wide receiver Martavis Bryant, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Bryant expressed his frustrations with the team on Instagram after seeing only 2 targets in Week 7 and seemed to confirm reports that he wants to be traded. It was also reported on Monday that Bryant skipped mandatory team meetings, but it doesn't sound like the Steelers have any interest in trading someone who has proven to be a big-play talent. The trade deadline is next Tuesday, October 31, at 4 P.M. E.T.
Bryant has 18 catches on 36 targets this year for 234 yards and 1 touchdown, but he's seen just 5 total targets over the past two weeks and is averaging only 5.8 FanDuel points per game this season.
Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders could play against the Chiefs in Week 8
Denver Broncos' head coach Vance Joseph said Monday that Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) has a chance to return in Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Joseph labeled Sanders as "day-to-day" so the veteran wideout has progressed in his recovery. Sanders injured his ankle in Denver's Week 6 loss to the New York Giants.
Sanders is averaging 10.2 FanDuel points so far this season.
Jay Cutler diagnosed with cracked ribs, out Week 8 for Dolpins
Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler is dealing with cracked ribs and will not play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football, head coach Adam Gase confirmed.
Cutler is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Gase says Matt Moore will be the Dolphins' starter only until Cutler returns, but that could change depending on his level of play. It's not really a downgrade for Miami's offensive skill-players.
Cutler completed 12-of-16 passes for 138 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception for 12.52 FanDuel points before leaving on Sunday.
Browns' Joe Thomas officially out for year with torn triceps
The Cleveland Browns announced left tackle Joe Thomas will miss the rest of the season with a torn left triceps.
It's a huge blow for a winless Browns team and will end his personal streak of 167 consecutive starts. Thomas is expected to miss 6-to-9 months and said he will think about his future in the offseason. Cleveland selected Thomas with the third pick in the 2007 NFL Draft and he turns 33 in December.
The Browns mustered 9 points against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7, marking the second time in the past four weeks they were held below 10 points.
