Here’s a look at some of the top rumors for Friday, Oct. 9:
The Green Bay Packers have a few wide receivers on this week’s injury report. Randall Cobb's injured shoulder has him listed as probable after limited participation during Wednesday’s practice. He's likely to push through soreness all season, but he could be just one big hit to the affected area away from missing some extended time. For now, the concern is his pain tolerance. It's a good sign then that a big hit in last week’s game didn’t seem to keep him out for long. Meanwhile, Devante Adams is listed as questionable with his ankle injury. Adams was a non-participant throughout this week of practice. The Packers don’t have high optimism he’ll be ready to go on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.
The Arizona Cardinals have running back Andre Ellington listed as probable after missing three games with a sprained PCL. Ellington returns after three productive games by Chris Johnson, the fifth best rusher in the NFL. According to Ellington, it’s going to be a rotation. “Because when I'm not out there, I got trust in guys that can get it done or vice versa," Ellington said. "We all can pretty much do the same things. It just makes our offense and our team that much better where we got three guys that we can rotate.”
According to Andrew Mason on Twitter, the Denver Broncos have Demaryius Thomas listed as probable with a neck injury after being limited in practice earlier this week. Thomas has caught over 100 yards in three consecutive games against the Oakland Raiders.
The Seattle Seahawks' running back situation has been cleared up a little. Marshawn Lynch will miss this week against the Cincinnati Bengals due to his hamstring injury, but according to Greg Bell’s twitter, expect Lynch to be ready for Week 6. Backup running back Fred Jackson is still questionable with his ankle injury. However the team is optimistic he’ll play. Just in case, Seattle could activate Rod Smith per Bob Condotta's twitter.. Expect Thomas Rawls to start and get a bigger workload this week.
