Detroit's Kerryon Johnson (knee) reportedly expected to 'miss some time'
Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) is considered "week to week" after exiting Week 7's game in the first half.
According to Schefter's source, Johnson is "expected to miss some time with a knee injury." Stay tuned for more practice updates and injury reports but for now expect Johnson to sit out this week.
If Kerryon is inactive for Week 8's matchup against New York Giants, expect Ty Johnson to take over on most downs with J.D. McKissic handling pass work behind him.
Patriots' Rex Burkhead (foot) inactive in Week 7
New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead (foot) will not play in Monday night's matchup against the New York Jets.
Burkhead will miss his third straight game after suffering a foot injury in Week 4. Expect James White and Sony Michel to handle most of the running back touches against the Jets.
In four games this season, Burkhead has produced 229 scrimmage yards and one touchdown.
Jets' Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) available on Monday night
New York Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) is active for Week 7's game against the New England Patriots.
Thomas will play in tonight's "revenge" game despite dealing with a hamstring injury.
Our models project Thomas to haul in 2.9 receptions for 32.3 yards on 5.1 targets.
New England's Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) active for Monday night's matchup against the Jets
New England Patriots wide receiver Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) will play in Week 7's matchup against the New York Jets.
Dorsett is active on Monday night after logging several limited practices. Expect the 26-year old to start on the outside in Week 7.
Our models currently project Dorsett to haul in 3.4 receptions for 47.5 yards on 5.6 targets.
Titans' Delanie Walker's (ankle) Week 8 status considered day-to-day
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) is day-to-day after exiting Week 7's game in the first half.
According to head coach Mike Vrabel, the Titans are "frustrated" for Walker and will "get him in a position where he can help us." Considering the nagging nature of an ankle injury, it's possible the veteran could sit until it's fully healed.
Expect Jonnu Smith to take over at tight end if Walker is unable to play in this week's matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Matt Ryan (ankle) may play for Falcons in Week 8
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (ankle) has not been ruled out for Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, head coach Dan Quinn said.
Ryan suffered a sprained right ankle in the Falcons' blowout Week 7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. "Hopefully it's not a long-term thing," Quinn said, adding that more will be known on Ryan's status later this week. Matt Schaub would draw the start if Ryan were to miss a game for the first time since 2009.
Ryan has completed 70.9 percent of his passes for 2,170 yards (7.6 per attempt) with 15 touchdowns and 8 interceptions this season.
