C.J. Prosise Headshot

Prosise is questionable to return to Sunday's road game against the Giants due to an ankle injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Putting an end to a two-game absence, Prosise was nonetheless expected to be on a limited workload Sunday. That said, he appeared to log just one snap in which he ran a route into a flat and didn't take any contact, per Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. If Prosise requires another respite, Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and J.D. McKissic will comprise the backfield.

Isaiah Crowell Headshot

Crowell carried the ball 17 times for 35 yards and caught four of six targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 12-9 loss to the Titans.

The Titans defensive front absolutely shut down Cleveland's running game Sunday, as they allowed Crowell to gain a measly two yards per carry. Through seven games in 2017, Crowell has yet to rush for more than 60 yards and still doesn't have a touchdown to his name, though it was nice seeing him get a little more involved in the passing attack. The 24-year-old is still Cleveland's bell-cow back, but the production just hasn't been there, making him a low-end No. 2 running back at best. He'll try to revive his season in Week 9 against the Vikings.
4:58 pm (EST)
Derrick Henry Headshot

Henry ran for 13 yards on 13 carries and had two catches for 11 yards in Sunday's 12-9 win over the Browns.

Henry has been all or nothing this season. In wins over Jacksonville in Week 2 and Indianapolis in Week 6, Henry averaged 6.76 yards per carry and scored both of his touchdowns. In the team's other five games, Henry has averaged 2.57 yards per carry and has topped 25 rushing yards just once. It's hard to predict which Henry will show up, but recent history is in his favor for the Titans' next game. He gets one of the league's worst rush defenses in Baltimore after next week's bye.
4:55 pm (EST)
Martin Hanzal Headshot

Hanzal failed to register a point for the fifth consecutive game during his team's 4-3 win over Carolina on Saturday.

On the season, Hanzal has scored just one goal and has a minus-5 rating through eight games. The 30-year-old forward posted 20 goals and 39 points with Minnesota and Arizona last year, so the rough start is disappointing for Dallas. He'll try to bust out of the slump on Tuesday in Colorado.
4:55 pm (EST)
Joe Thomas Headshot

Thomas (triceps) will undergo a MRI on Monday to see if he can return this season, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

It is feared that Thomas may have torn his triceps, but no further information will be available until after his MRI. If Thomas is out for the season, an inexperienced Zach Banner will have to step into the left tackle position.
4:51 pm (EST)
Chris Kreider Headshot

With his team on a man advantage, Kreider found the back of the net for the first time this year in a 4-2 victory over Nashville on Saturday.

Not only was it Kreider's first goal of the season, but it also snapped a five-game stretch without scoring a point. It's been a relatively slow start for the 26-year-old forward, who has scored 20-plus goals in three consecutive campaigns coming in to this season. The Massachusetts native will try to ride the momentum when he faces off against San Jose on Monday.
4:49 pm (EST)
Jordan Howard Headshot

Howard rushed 21 times for 65 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 17-3 win over Carolina.

Howard was the only Chicago running back to carry the ball in this one, indicating that Tarik Cohen is no longer much of a threat to his playing time. Coach John Fox clearly doesn't trust quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to do anything more than manage the game, so Howard should continue to see tremendous volume after averaging over 25 carries per contest since Trubisky took over under center in Week 5.
4:47 pm (EST)
Cody Kessler Headshot

Kessler completed 10 of 19 passes for 121 yards with an interception during Sunday's 12-9 loss to the Titans.

Kessler -- who was active for the first time in 2017 -- was called on to replace DeShone Kizer in the third quarter of Sunday's matchup. Kessler is Cleveland's third quarterback to throw a pass this season, as the struggling Kizer has already been benched twice. The second-year signal caller out of USC was able to move the offense more efficiently than Kizer, connecting with tight end David Njoku on two long completions, though he was unable to lead his offense to a touchdown and sailed a throw to the rookie tight end that was intercepted late in the game. It still remains to be seen whom the Browns' quarterback will be versus the Vikings in Week 8, but knowing coach Hue Jackson's history with the position, don't be surprised if Kessler is under center going forward.
4:47 pm (EST)
Marcus Mariota Headshot

Mariota completed 21 of 34 passes for 203 yards and added an eight-yard run in Sunday's 12-9 overtime win over Cleveland.

It was the first time this season that Mariota did not throw or run for a touchdown and Cleveland isn't exactly the team that you'd expect to give Tennessee fits. The talented young signal-caller has done well in protecting the ball in Tennessee's run-heavy offense, but has accounted for multiple touchdowns in just two of six games. How much of that is accountable to Tennessee's scheme and how much of that is Mariota will become clearer after next week's bye, during which Mariota will get a chance to rest the hamstring he injured back in Week 4.
4:44 pm (EST)
Patrick Kane Headshot

Kane recorded a goal for the second straight game in a 4-2 win over the Coyotes on Saturday.

Kane has collected exactly one point in each of the last five games, scoring two goals and three assists in that span. The elite winger is playing as expected this season with four goals and 11 points in nine games along with a plus-3 rating. He'll look to make it six consecutive games with a point on Tuesday in Vegas.
