Tight end Marcedes Lewis has missed the past six games due to a high ankle sprain. He remains on injured reserve/designated to return and won't be allowed to play until the Jacksonville Jaguars come off of their bye in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts.

When the New York Jets added Chris Johnson to their roster, they seemingly envisioned him being a playmaking option out of their backfield, despite all signs in recent years pointing to a diminishing skill set.

The availability of the Cincinnati Bengals' top offensive playmakers for Week 9 is unclear, though WR A.J. Green and RB Giovani Bernard appear to be heading in different directions with their health.

Marqise Lee the punt returner?

The first half of Marqise Lee's rookie season has offered little to get excited about, as the rookie second-rounder has battled injuries and been limited to 12 catches for 128 yards. It goes without saying, but those aren't the kind of numbers Jacksonville envisioned when they selected the former USC star early in the second round back in May.

Could a move to punt returner get the speedy receiver going?

The Carolina Panthers rank 24th in scoring this season at 20.9 points per game. That low ranking shouldn't come as a surprise for a team that has failed miserably in the red zone. Only four teams are succeeding at worse rate than the Panthers (46.2 percent) in the red zone in 2014.

Late last week, I took a look at the St. Louis Rams backfield and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's stated intention of using a running back by committee. He followed through in that regard Sunday, as his top three backs all got a share of the workload: Tre Mason had 32 yards on 7 carries, Benjamin Cunningham has 27 yards on 4 carries, and Zac Stacy had 17 yards on 5 carries.

The Dallas Cowboys had one of the worst defenses in NFL history last season, then they lost several of their key players during the offseason. So, most expected them to continue stinking up the joint in prolific ways in 2014. However, they have looked comparatively better and have helped the Cowboys push their way to a 6-1 record heading into their Monday night matchup with the Washington Redskins.
