News: Jackson (groin) will not return any sooner than Week 10 against the Chiefs, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
Impact: Buffalo faces the Jets in Week 8, followed by a Week 9 bye. With C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) facing an even longer absence than Jackson, the Bills will turn to Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown, the latter of whom has not been active for a game this season. While his short-term value obviously takes a big hit, Jackson could see some extra touches later this season, if he makes it back to the field before Spiller.
News: After being diagnosed with a broken collarbone, Spiller is slated to undergo surgery Monday, according to ESPN.com.
Impact: In any case, coach Doug Marrone confirmed Sunday that Spiller will be out an "indefinite" amount of time and with Fred Jackson dealing with a groin injury, it looks like the Bills may have to turn to a combo of Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown next Sunday against the Jets, and possibly beyond.
News: Jackson's groin injury appears serious, but the Bills will have a better understanding of the severity of the injury, after the running back undergoes an MRI on Monday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Impact: The Bills have had a devastating day on the injury front, as C.J. Spiller was injured just minutes after Jackson and reportedly has a broken collarbone. If Jackson is forced to miss significant time, Boobie Dixon and Bryce Brown, who was inactive Sunday, figure to see a major uptick in carries. The Bills may also look for help from outside the organization, to reinforce a suddenly threadbare running back depth chart.
News: Graham (shoulder) will get a pain-killing injection before Sunday's game against the Lions and will try to play around 30 snaps, Fox's Jay Glazer reported on their pregame show.
Impact: This falls in line with earlier reports about Graham's potential workload. Hence, don't look for him to be in there in running downs, but Graham should play in red zone situations and obvious passing downs, where he doesn't have to block.
News: McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins at quarterback for the Washington Redskins' opening possession of the second half against the Tennessee Titans.
Impact: On McCoy's second play from scrimmage - and his first pass attempt - he threw a short pass to Pierre Garcon that the receiver turned into a 70-yard touchdown. Washington took a 13-10 lead with the play.
News: Spiller was carted off the field in the first half of their game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Impact: Spiller hurt his left shoulder at the end of a 53-yard run up the left sideline with 5:49 left in the second quarter. He was carted off in tears and will miss what coach Doug Marrone called "an undetermined amount of time."
News: Beckham is set for his second career start in the New York Giants' first game without wide receiver Victor Cruz.
Impact: Beckham was in the lineup along with Reuben Randle for Sunday's game at the Dallas Cowboys. Cruz was lost for the season to a torn patellar tendon in his right knee in last week's loss at Philadelphia.
News: The Baltimore Ravens have placed guard Kelechi Osemele on their inactive list for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Impact: Osemele missed last week's game against Tampa Bay with a knee injury, as did tackle Eugene Monroe. To fill the void, coach John Harbaugh has inserted rookies James Hurst and John Urschel on the starting offensive line.
News: Kuechly has been ejected in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Impact: Last season's Defensive Player of the Year appeared to swing a leg in the direction of Green Bay tight end Richard Rodgers as he was getting up after scrambling for a fumble that was recovered by the Packers at the Carolina 37. Kuechly swung his arms and seemed agitated as he was restrained from behind by back judge Steve Freeman.
News: Jenkins returned for the first defensive series of the second half after injuring his right ankle late in the half against Seattle on Sunday.
Impact: Jenkins, the Rams' top cornerback, was hurt assisting on the tackle after a 22-yard reception by Cooper Helfet. He was down on the field for several minutes with 1:41 to play and Seattle at the St. Louis 36. Jenkins walked off the sideline for medical tests.
News: Murray is the first running back in NFL history to start a season with seven straight 100-yard games.
Impact: The NFL rushing leader reached 100 yards on a 1-yard plunge early in the fourth quarter for the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants on Sunday. The fourth-year back from Oklahoma was tied with Hall of Famer Jim Brown, who hit the century mark in six straight games to start the 1958 season for Cleveland.
News: Walden has been ejected from the Cincinnati game after making contact with an official late in the first half.
Impact: Walden was assessed a 15-yard personal foul penalty and escorted to the sideline by referee Gene Steratore. The play gave Cincinnati its initial first down of the half with 48 seconds to go. Walden was in the middle of the field and appeared to have one arm raised across from a Bengals player. But the other arm appeared to be in the chest of the official between the players.
News: Jackson was carted off the field after hurting his groin late in the first quarter Sunday against the Vikes. The Bills are waiting for further tests to determine the severity of the groin injury the veteran running back sustained late in the first quarter.
Impact: He immediately grabbed the inside of his left leg as he was on the field. Jackson required help getting up and had difficulty moving his legs while being helped to the sideline by center Eric Wood and a trainer. He then had his head in his hands while being carted off. The Bills said he will not return. Anthony Dixon will be the featured back now.
