Ravens RB Ray Rice is not expected to practice today as he tries to ovecome a knee contusion. Rice is saying that he will play this week against the Steelers, and is the only player to rush for 100 yards against Pittsburgh in the past 38 games. Stay tuned as Rice’s status will be continually updated throughout the rest of the week. SOURCE: Jamison Hensley on Twitter
Giants WR Mario Manningham is listed as questionable on this weeks injury report with a concussion. Coach Tom Coughlin has stated rookie Victor Cruz will practice this week as the number 3 receiver. Cruz has some value if he can play like he did in the preseason, but wouldn’t expect Manningham to lose his role regardless of how Cruz performs should Mario not be able to go Sunday night.

Rams RB Steven Jackson(Groin) sat out practice today and probably won’t try and give it a go in practice until probably Friday. He is being considered day to day. If he can’t go Sunday, then Kenneth Darby will get the start and would have a pretty good matchup against the Seahawks. SOURCE: Danny O’Neil on Twitter
Buccaneers Head Coach Raheem Morris said of rookie RB LaGarette Blount he “has earned the short-yardage and goal-line back role from now on.” This is big news for Blount and makes him even more valuable going forward. As I stated in yesterday waiver adds, go out and grab this guy.
Lions QB Matthew Stafford(shoulder) could possibly be back in the lineup by week 5. Stafford started some light throwing yesterday and if all goes well, he may be back to practice by next week. If he does go in week 5, he could reaggravate the injury when he gets hit so its something to be skeptical of. He is a guy that should be picked back up in deep leagues and dynasty leagues immediately if he’s available.SOURCE: Chris McCosky Detroit News
Lions rookie RB Jahvid Best did not participate in today’s practice with a turf toe injury and his status for Sunday is still unkown. SOURCE: Tom Kowalski on Twitter
Browns QB Jake Delhomme won’t practice today but is expected back either tomorrow or Friday. I hope for Jake’s sake he gets healed, but I think its in Clevelands best interest to keep Seneca Wallace as the starter. SOURCE: Scott Petrak on Twitter
Denver RB Knowshon Moreno hasn’t yet practiced this week and isn’t expected to play against the Titans Sunday. Laurence Maroney should receive the bulk of the carries this week but isn’t a great play against Tennessee. SOURCE: Denver Post
