Montee Ball to have emergency appendectomy on Monday.
This seems to happen a lot lately but generally it's nothing to worry about as players usually recover smoothly from appendectomies, but I would keep an eye on this situation as Ball is only going into his 2nd season in the NFL. You should now really keep your eyes on the Broncos' No. 2 running back battle between change-of-pace back Ronnie Hillman and power running C.J. Anderson.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Lions placed CB Alex Carter on injured reserve.
It is now officially a lost season for the rookie. He was placed on short-term IR to begin the season, and is now done for the year. He has no stats, and while he says he is healthy, the fact remains that he is too far behind after missing the first nine weeks of the season with the IR/Designated to Return status to open the season.

Redskins are working out CB AL Louis-Jean on Tuesday.
He played in nine games with the Bears in 2014, but was released this season out of training camp, having failed to impress the new coaching regime in Chicago. He has decent size at 6'1" for a cornerback, and also flashes good speed for coverage. At present, you do not need to put him on your IDP radar, unless he is signed to the 53-man roster instead of the practice squad. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
