Jimmy Graham (knee) remained sidelined at Tuesday's practice.

He's been missing practices the last couple weeks but continues to play through whatever is ailing him and should be out there Thursday night against Seattle. Graham had a stinker last week against Miami, catching his only target for 14 yards. Against his former Seahawks teammates, Graham will be a TE1.

Buccaneers promoted RB Dare Ogunbowale from their practice squad.

Ogunbowale will serve as the Bucs' No. 3 option until Ronald Jones (hamstring) returns. Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers will be the primary running backs for the Week 11 game against Giants.

Coach Kyle Shanahan said he envisions using Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida on the field at the same time next season.

Shanahan said he planned on using McKinnon and Breida at the same time this season, but McKinnon of course tore his ACL before those plans came to fruition. Since it was a "clean" tear and it happened in early September, McKinnon should be ready well ahead of the start of the 2019 season, but Breida's emergence has complicated McKinnon's 2019 outlook. The 49ers' usage of McKinnon and Breida will be a storyline going into next year's training camp, but Shanahan has made it clear that using both of them on the field together is in his plans.

Pierre Garcon (knee) is expected to practice when the 49ers return from their Week 11 bye.

Garcon was ruled out for Week 10 after not practicing at all leading up to the game, but coach Kyle Shanahan said he will practice ahead of the Week 12 game against the Bucs. Even with Tampa Bay playing porous defense, Garcon will only be a WR5 since he doesn't have a single game with over 60 receiving yards this season.

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Nick Mullens will continue to be the 49ers' starting quarterback until he says otherwise.

That means Mullens will be the starter coming out of the 49ers' Week 11 bye when they visit Tampa Bay. The second-year UDFA took advantage of the tanking Raiders in his debut two weeks ago, and he played well enough on Monday to keep the job over C.J. Beathard. In total, Mullens has completed 70% of his passes for 512 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.

Coach Bill O'Brien said WR DeAndre Carter is a "prime candidate" to return punts.

The Texans waived third-rounder Tyler Ervin to make room for Carter, who was waived by the Eagles just last week. Carter has returned 10 punts for an average of 10.3 yards this season, which is slightly better than Ervin's 8.3 yard average.

Randall Cobb (hamstring) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

Cobb reportedly won't make the trip to Seattle, meaning he will miss his second-straight game Thursday after suffering a setback last Thursday. Equanimeous St. Brown is the Packers' fill-in No. 3 receiver behind Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Monday's Rams/Chiefs game has been moved from Mexico City back to Los Angeles due to poor field conditions at Azteca Stadium.

It's surprising but absolutely the right call based on pictures and videos circulating on social media. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Tuesday that some players were considering boycotting the game they were so concerned. Although moving the game was the right thing to do, it's an utter fiasco for the NFL, which continues to be confoundingly bad at ensuring neutral-site fields are in proper condition. The move has zero ramifications for fantasy.

Eagles TE Richard Rodgers (knee, injured reserve) has been cleared to resume practicing.

It opens Rodgers' three-week window to be activated to the active roster. A poor blocker who is not needed behind pass catchers Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, Rodgers won't have a route to snaps on offense.
Nov 13 - 4:44 PM

Rams KR Pharoh Cooper (ankle, injured reserve) has been cleared to resume practicing.

It opens Cooper's three-week window to come off injured reserve. Even with Cooper Kupp (knee) on injured reserve, Cooper should be lightly used on offense upon his return. He's a return specialist.
Nov 13 - 4:42 PM

Titans waived FB Jalston Fowler.

UDFA RB Dalyn Dawkins has been promoted from the practice squad to take Fowler's roster spot. Fowler had yet to play an offensive snap this season. The Titans would rather use his spot on a true runner.
Nov 13 - 4:18 PM

Patriots waived RB Kenjon Barner.

With Sony Michel back in good health and Cordarrelle Patterson having proven capable of handling some carries, Barner was no longer needed on the 53-man roster. He was with the Patriots for five weeks.
Nov 13 - 4:10 PM

Unsigned Steelers franchise player Le'Veon Bell will not report by Tuesday's 4PM ET deadline and is out for the remainder of the 2018 season.

What a disaster. By not reporting, Bell forfeits the remaining $6.84 million on his $14.544 million tender. 26-year-old Bell has framed this as betting on himself and doing what is right for his fellow running backs, but this is money he will never make back. There is no guarantee a 27-year-old runner is going to cash in on the open market after sitting out an entire season healthy. Even if he does, a running back passing up $14.544 million guaranteed for one season of play in the modern NFL is not a sound business decision. It's not fair, of course, but it is reality. James Conner will finish out the year as a true bell-cow back/elite RB1. The Steelers could theoretically tag Bell again in the spring, but the sides will undoubtedly divorce.
Nov 13 - 3:48 PM

Bills waived WR Terrelle Pryor.

Someone named Robert Foster led the Bills in receiving in their upset smash of the Jets as Pryor was targeted zero times. Pryor drew five looks in two games in Buffalo. If the 29-year-old converted quarterback can't last in the Bills' desperate receiver corps, his NFL future is looking bleak.

Poor field conditions at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium has the NFL considering moving Monday's game between the Rams and Chiefs to Los Angeles.

The field is in "serious disrepair" after a Saturday concert. It is a turf/grass combination, and sod replacements were being made on Tuesday. "We are working closely with the field manager at Azteca Stadium and others to ensure that we have an NFL quality surface for our game, and we are looking forward to kicking off in Mexico City on Monday night," a league spokesman said. It would be very un-NFL to move the game. Short of truly catastrophic playing conditions, we expect the league to keep the game in Mexico.
