10/23/2014 John Boyett, S
The Denver Broncos have released Boyett from their practice squad a day after he was charged with assault, theft and harassment. Police said Boyett, 24, assaulted a cab driver, stole a shovel from a construction site and tried to hide from officers by covering himself in mulch early Wednesday in Greenwood Village, according to court documents.

Analysis: Police said Boyett drunkenly head-butted and punched a cab driver they had hailed for him after he became belligerent at a bar. Authorities said he also repeatedly slammed his head into a patrol car window while yelling and spitting after telling arresting officers to contact his boss, GM John Elway.
10/23/2014 LaMarr Woodley, DE
Woodley has a serious biceps injury and could miss the remainder of the season. Woodley has not practiced since getting injured in Sunday's 24-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Interim coach Tony Sparano wouldn't discuss the specific nature of Woodley's situation but acknowledged it is a long-term injury.

Analysis: The 29-year-old was one of the Raiders' prized acquisitions this past offseason. Woodley and fellow defensive end Justin Tuck were signed to lucrative deals as part of general manager Reggie McKenzie's plan to bring in veterans with championship experience. Woodley has five tackles in six games and is without a sack. Tuck has 12 tackles and one sack but has been slowed by a knee injury.

10/23/2014 John Sullivan, C
Sullivan passed concussion testing and is expected to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Analysis: Sullivan, the veteran leader of Minnesota's struggling offensive line, left Sunday's game at Buffalo in the first quarter. He missed Wednesday's practice but returned on a limited basis Thursday.
10/23/2014 Jay Cutler, QB
Cutler insists receiver Brandon Marshall did not single out him or anyone else during his outburst following the loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Analysis: Cutler says Marshall "didn't come near me" and did not "say my name." He adds that the star receiver did not attack anyone personally with "what he was saying."
10/22/2014 Chandler Jones, DE
Jones is expected to be sidelined for about a month with a hip injury.

Analysis: Jones is the team leader with 4 1/2 sacks. He had six in 14 games as a rookie and 11 1/2 sacks while starting all 16 games last season.
10/22/2014 Quincy Enunwa, WR
Enunwa says he is happy to move forward after a domestic violence charge against him was conditionally dismissed in court last week.

Analysis: Police said Enunwa pulled a woman off a bed in a hotel on Aug. 31 in Florham Park and she injured her head and finger. The woman decided to not pursue the case. Enunwa, not eligible to play in a game while on the practice squad, says Wednesday that he didn't allow the case to "affect any part of my life."
10/22/2014 Ike Taylor, CB
Taylor returned to practice on Wednesday just one month after breaking his right arm.

Analysis: Taylor practiced in a limited capacity, running sprints and doing individual drills. He suffered a compound fracture in his right arm when teammate Lawrence Timmons slammed into it with his helmet while trying to make a tackle in a victory over Carolina on Sept. 21. The 34-year-old said there remains no timetable for his return and he is awaiting clearance from doctors before he can take part in a full practice.
10/22/2014 T.J. McDonald, S
McDonald did not practice due to concussion-like symptoms.

Analysis: McDonald's presence was a bit of a surprise on the injury report Wednesday, given coach Jeff Fisher made no mention of it and McDonald played every snap in last week's victory over Seattle.
10/22/2014 Jake Locker, QB
Locker practiced on Wednesday but his status for this weekend's game against Houston remains unclear.

Analysis: Locker left practice without stopping for his weekly meeting with the media. Coach Ken Whisenhunt says the quarterback didn't take questions because the Titans will know more about his status Thursday.
10/22/2014 Luke Kuechly, LB
Panthers coach Ron Rivera says the NFL has informed him that Luke Kuechly was wrongfully ejected from Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers for contact with an official. Rivera said Wednesday he received a memo from the league that also indicated the middle linebacker will not be fined.

Analysis: Kuechly, one of the team's defensive leaders, was ejected late in the third quarter of a 38-17 loss when he shrugged off an official who was pulling him from behind. Kuechly said he thought he was being pulled away by a Packers player. Rivera said he would like to see such calls reviewable by replay officials and hopes the league will consider changing that rule during the offseason.
10/22/2014 Jamaal Charles, RB
The Kansas City Chiefs insisted Wednesday that Charles has passed a battery of tests and does not show signs of a concussion, one day after the star running back said he exhibited symptoms in last weekend's win over San Diego.

Analysis: Charles took a blow from Brandon Flowers when he dove into the end zone Sunday. Charles popped up and trotted off the field, and trainers met him on the sideline. He remained in the game.
10/22/2014 Colt McCoy, QB
McCoy remains the Washington Redskins starting quarterback as of "right now" - but the coach Jay Gruden called Robert Griffin III a "wild card" who still has a chance to start Monday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Analysis: Gruden said Wednesday that Griffin still needs to be cleared for full contact and satisfy the coaches that he's ready in order to play. The coach said he'd like to make a final decision by the end of practice Thursday.
10/22/2014 Richard Gordon, TE
The Tennessee Titans have signed Gordon, filling the roster spot freed up by trading linebacker Akeem Ayers to the Patriots.

Analysis: The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Gordon has played 29 career games over three seasons with Oakland and Kansas City. A sixth-round draft pick out of Miami in 2011, Gordon spent his first two seasons in Oakland. The Titans placed tight end Craig Stevens on injured reserve last week.
10/22/2014 Mike Pouncey, C
The attorney for NFL offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey says no charges will filed against the twin brothers stemming from a July altercation at a Miami Beach nightclub.
