Falcons signed OL Rees Odhimabo.

The Falcons lost OG Brandon Fusco to a season-ending injury on Monday Night Football, so Odhimabo has been added onto the Falcons active roster. As a tackle with the Seahawks in 2017, Odhimabo earned PFF's third-worst tackle grade out of 83 qualifiers.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins will "most likely" place Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve.

Wilson doesn't need hip surgery, but the Dolphins want to give him time to recover correctly, so he will hit the injured reserve. Wilson, who in theory could return very late this season, is still only 26 years old and will be back with the Dolphins next season. With Kenny Stills ruled out for Week 8, the Dolphins will trot out Danny Amendola, Jakeem Grant, and DeVante Parker.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Vikings DE Everson Griffen (personal) will resume team activities tomorrow.

Griffen left the team on September 20 to address his mental health struggles, but the Vikings are welcoming him back nearly a month later. It is unclear if Griffen will be eligible to play for the Week 8 game against the Saints, but it's great news that he is doing well enough to be around his teammates. When Griffen is on the field, he is one of the league's top pass-rushers, highlighted by his double-digit sack totals in three of his last four seasons.

The NFLPA is "disappointed" that arbitrator Shyam Das denied Eric Reid's legal claim against the Cincinnati Bengals.

During Reid's visit with the Bengals this offseason, he was reportedly asked if he had plans to continue to kneel during the national anthem. After his response, Reid left without a contract, so Reid's legal team filed a grievance against the Bengals. That claim was denied yesterday by the arbitrator, but Reid is still continuing with his separate collusion case against the NFL alongside unsigned Colin Kaepernick.

Raiders waived S Obi Melifonwu.

The Raiders telegraphed this move when they waived/injured Melifonwu in August. The No. 56 overall pick of last year's draft, Melifonwu could not get healthy as a rookie and then barely practiced during the offseason. That was enough for impatient coach Jon Gruden to move on. Still only 24, Melifonwu should pretty quickly get a second chance elsewhere if his health cooperates.

Updating an earlier item, Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL following an MRI.

The Cowboys had been hopeful Swain would be ready for Week 9 coming off their bye, but that is looking unlikely now. If Swaim can't go against the Titans, some combination of Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Rico Gathers will attempt to catch passes.

Cowboys RG Zack Martin has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL.

As has TE Geoff Swaim. Martin played through the injury against the Redskins, but it's not a guarantee he will be ready for Week 9 coming off the Cowboys' bye. Adrenaline can sometimes power a player through an in-game injury. Martin is week to week.

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory underwent a knee scope on Tuesday.

Per the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys are "hopeful" Gregory can return against the Titans following Dallas' Week 8 bye. Playing roughly half the Cowboys' snaps, Gregory has just one sack so far this season.

Speaking following the Giants' trade of CB Eli Apple, coach Pat Shurmur said the team has no plans to bench Eli Manning.

In other words, even though they are tanking, the G-Men won't bench their quarterback. Of course, you could easily argue leaving Manning in augments the tank. Coming off his best game of the season, Manning will be a low-end QB2 against the Redskins. Washington likes to dominate time of possession and keep the opposing offense off the field, limiting plays.

Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim is undergoing an MRI for a knee injury and will not practice during the team's Week 8 bye.

Coach Jason Garrett is "hopeful" it will be a short-term injury, but an MRI is never a good sign. The 2015 seventh-rounder has 19 grabs in seven games after entering 2018 with nine career catches.

Bengals placed TE Mason Schreck on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

TE Jordan Franks has been promoted from the practice squad in the corresponding roster move. Schreck is the third Bengals tight end to get injured this season. Hold on to your C.J. Uzomahs tight.
Oct 23 - 4:00 PM

Raiders signed K Daniel Carlson.

The Raiders are moving on from Matthew McCrane as they wait on Mike Nugent (hip) to get healthy. A fifth-round rookie out of Auburn, Carlson was cut by the Vikings following a disastrous two-week stint. The Raiders are getting their tank on, and Carlson was good in the SEC, so they are taking a no-risk gamble as they play for draft position and wait on Nugent.
Oct 23 - 3:41 PM

Ravens placed DT Willie Henry on injured reserve with a back injury.

The 2016 fourth-rounder had recently returned from sports-hernia surgery. He finishes 2018 having played 82 snaps. Headed into the final year of his rookie contact, Henry will be up against it to crack the 53-man roster next season.
Oct 23 - 3:32 PM

Falcons placed RG Brandon Fusco on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

Fusco went down in Monday night's victory over the Giants. Fusco was not having a good year — he had graded out as one of Pro Football Focus' worst guards — but it's yet another season-ending loss for the most-injured team in football. Longtime Falcons reserve Ben Garland is the next man up. Now 30, Fusco is signed through 2020.
Oct 23 - 3:21 PM

Bucs signed LB Kevin Minter.

The Bucs are short 'backers after losing two to torn ACLs in Week 7. A longtime Cardinals starter, Minter made nine 2017 appearances for the Jets. He will likely see immediate snaps in Tampa.
