Quarterback

QB | Matthew Stafford | Detroit Lions | Injury, Fantasy
Updating a previous item, Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (ankle) has an 80 percent chance of playing in the team's Week 8 game after taking part in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

QB | Carson Palmer | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
Oakland Raiders QB Carson Palmer said he is not looking for a reunion with free-agent WR Terrell Owens (Bengals). Palmer and Owens had some success together with the Cincinnati Bengals last season. "T.O. and I had a great working relationship. He had one of his most successful years over the past five or six years, a lot of production and he was a great teammate in Cincinnati. The problem is that for him to get here there's not anybody that we could let go," Palmer said. "We have a stable of young horses that can run and guys that can just move. Very young, very inexperienced but tons of potential and it's tough to give up a young guy with a lot of potential for a guy that's got a lot of history in the league that's in his late 30s so I can't see him coming here, but I had a good time playing with him and he's an explosive player himself."

QB | Matt Hasselbeck | Tennessee Titans | Injury, Fantasy
Tennessee Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck (thumb) is expected to fully participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 27, after being limited Wednesday, Oct. 26.

QB | Jason Campbell | Oakland Raiders | Injury
Oakland Raiders QB Jason Campbell's (clavicle) prognosis for recovery will roughly take six weeks or so. Therefore, he conceivably could be back in time for the final month of the regular season. Head coach Hue Jackson could possibly turn to Campbell for the stretch run if QB Carson Palmer is struggling or injured.

QB | Philip Rivers | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers said Wednesday, Oct. 26, that he is completely healthy, eliminating the possibility as to why he is in a throwing slump so far this season. "I'm as healthy as I've been through six weeks," Rivers said. "I'm doing the best I can to lead a 4-2 team." Rivers hasn't shown signs of injury, but his health has been questioned by the media because of his turnover troubles. Rivers has thrown nine interceptions and only seven touchdowns and his 82.3 passer rating is the worst of his career since he became a starter.

QB | Tarvaris Jackson | Seattle Seahawks | Injury, Fantasy
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday, Oct. 26, that the decision on the starting quarterback between QBs Tarvaris Jackson (pectoral) and Charlie Whitehurst might be a game-time decision. "We just need to steal as much time as we can before we extend him, so that's how we'll go about it," Carroll said. "(Jackson) will be ready to go in terms of playing the mental side of it by the end of this week. We just need to see physically if he can handle it."

QB | Matt Schaub | Houston Texans | Fantasy
Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub will start in Week 8 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has had success against the AFC South Division rivals over the years, posting three 300-yard games in his past five starts against Houston with 10 touchdown passes and just two interceptions. He has at least one TD pass in each of the past five meetings, and has thrown for at least 207 yards in each game.

QB | Tom Brady | New England Patriots | Fantasy
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady will face the Pittsburgh Steelers for the sixth time in the regular season, and eighth time overall including the playoffs. He is 6-1 in his career as a starter against the Steelers, and he has three straight 300-yard games against them dating back to 2005. In five regular season games against Pittsburgh, Brady has 12 touchdown passes and just three interceptions.

QB | Tony Romo | Dallas Cowboys | Injury, Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8 on the road. In his past seven games as a starter against the NFC East Division rivals, Romo is 5-2, including a playoff matchup. During that span, he has five 300-yard games. He missed both meetings last season due to his collarbone injury.

QB | Matt Cassel | Kansas City Chiefs | Fantasy
Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel will meet the San Diego Chargers in Week 8 at Arrowhead Stadium. He broke through for two touchdown passes in Week 3 in San Diego, but has generally struggled in his career against the AFC West Division rivals. Cassel has thrown for 200 yards just once in five starts against the Chargers, and that came when he was a member of the New England Patriots in 2007. He has five TDs and six INTs against San Diego in five career starts.

QB | JaMarcus Russell | Free Agent | Fantasy
Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson spoke about QB JaMarcus Russell Wednesday, Oct. 26, and his recent comments in a colum for Sports Illustrated. "JaMarcus is a good young man," Jackson said. "Hopefully he'll get another opportunity to play. But my time with JaMarcus was one of watching him grow. I thought he got better, but was he as good as we need him to be at that time? Obviously not, because we made the decision to move forward."

QB | Sam Bradford | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (ankle) was still in a walking boot Wednesday, Oct. 26, and may not even test his injury by Friday, Oct. 28, which makes it likely he will miss his second straight start. QB A.J. Feeley will receive the start against the New Orleans Saints if Bradford remains out.

QB | Matt Moore | Miami Dolphins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Dolphins CB Nolan Carroll (hamstring), S Chris X. Clemons (hamstring), QB Matt Moore (ribs) and DL Jared Odrick (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 26.

QB | Tim Tebow | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow said the offense has already made some progress in practice this week to correct some of the flaws that hurt them against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7. "I felt like today we made some good strides, with timing, with precision, with little things," Tebow said. "That was very encouraging, and I think we have to continue that every day."

QB | Ben Roethlisberger | Pittsburgh Steelers | Injury, Fantasy
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) said tests on his knee showed no damage and he will be able to play in Week 8.

QB | Josh Freeman | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Fantasy
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman is working with quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt to limit his interceptions. "It's really just peeling back some of the aggressive nature," Freeman said. "When we're dropping back to take a shot, I'm trying to strike a dagger in the defense. More often than not this year, it's kind of backfired. We're going to go back and self-scout the entire season and go back and look at the interceptions." He leads all QBS in interceptions this year with 10.


Running Back

RB | Jahvid Best | Detroit Lions | Injury
Detroit Lions WR Rashied Davis (foot), RB Jahvid Best (concussion), DL Sammie Hill (foot), OG Rob Sims (undisclosed) and DT Nick Fairley (foot) did not participate in open practice periods to the media Thursday, Oct. 27.

RB | DeMarco Murray | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Despite rushing for 253 yards in the team's Week 7 game, Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray may have difficulty rushing for over 100 yards again in the team's Week 8 game. The Cowboys, who play on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles, have had one 100-yard rusher in their last 18 road games.

RB | Chris Johnson | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson said he is frustrated with his poor season so far. However, Johnson vows his struggles are not because he has lost a step. "People should worry about me losing burst once I get in the open field and somebody catching me," Johnson said. "I don't feel I've been in the open field enough times for anybody to question my burst or anything like that." Head coach Mike Munchak agrees with Johnson's assessment. "We're not rushing the way we were, then it hasn't looked the same that way as far as his speed. I'm sure his speed is fine," Munchak said. "I don't think it's his speed why we're not rushing for more yards."

RB | Arian Foster | Houston Texans | Fantasy
Houston Texans RB Arian Foster will meet the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8 at home. Last season, Foster gouged the Jaguars for 236 rushing yards on 46 carries, and he scored three times. At Reliant Stadium in Week 17, he ran for 180 yards and two scores Jan. 2, 2011.

RB | Peyton Hillis | Cleveland Browns | Injury, , Fantasy
Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday, Oct. 26, that RB Peyton Hillis (hamstring) will start in Week 8 against the San Francisco 49ers if healthy. "He is our starting halfback. If he is healthy, he is going to start this game," Shurmur said. The coach said RB Montario Hardesty earned more playing time after posting career highs with 33 carries and 95 yards in Week 7 with Hillis inactive.

RB | Bernard Scott | Cincinnati Bengals | Fantasy
Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden wants to see RB Bernard Scott, who is expected to start in Week 8 in place of the suspended RB Cedric Benson, post a long run. The Bengals are last in the NFL with just two runs of at least 15 yards this season, and the team has just one run of 28 or more yards, which happened back in Week 1.

RB | Mark Ingram | New Orleans Saints | Injury, Fantasy
New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said Wednesday, Oct. 26, that the team is taking it slow with RB Mark Ingram (heel).

"Hopefully that can happen sooner rather than later."

"My involvement with this offense hasn't changed since the beginning of the season, I don't want (offensive coordinator) Cam (Cameron) and them to feel like they've got to force me the ball. I'm not that kind of guy. My carries come when the whole offense has success. I look forward to having that success."

RB | Jerious Norwood | St. Louis Rams | Injury
St. Louis Rams RB Jerious Norwood (illness) and OT Rodger Saffold (illness) were each sent home Wednesday, Oct. 26, as they continue to deal with illness. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo is uncertain if it is a flu bug or cold. "We're not taking any chances with anyting that might be contagious," Spagnuolo said.

RB | Chris Ivory | New Orleans Saints | Injury, Fantasy
New Orleans Saints RB Chris Ivory (foot, hernia) will likely need to be eased in if he is activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list for the team's Week 8 game if RB Mark Ingram (heel) is unable to play.

The problem is that for him to get here there's not anybody that we could let go," Palmer said. "We have a stable of young horses that can run and guys that can just move. Very young, very inexperienced but tons of potential and it's tough to give up a young guy with a lot of potential for a guy that's got a lot of history in the league that's in his late 30s so I can't see him coming here, but I had a good time playing with him and he's an explosive player himself."
