      McCoy again took the majority of the first-team reps in practice Friday, the Redskins' official site reports.

      Analysis: Robert Griffin III (ankle) was limited in practice, but coach Jay Gruden is maintaining, at least publicly, that Griffin still could start Monday night against the Cowboys. Gruden said he will not make a decision on Griffin's status until game day. All of this uncertainty could be nothing more than gamesmanship in an effort to keep the rival Cowboys guessing, but we will not know for sure until Monday. For now, McCoy remains the most likely starter.

      Green (toe) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens, ESPN's Coley Harvey reports.

      Analysis: While Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site relays that Green has been progressing this week, the doubtful designation suggests that the Bengals will almost assuredly err on the side of caution with their star wideout this weekend.

      Vereen, who was not spotted at practice Friday, is feeling under the weather, per Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald.

      Analysis: While the report does not specify the nature of Vereen's illness, the running back's absence from Friday's practice is evidently not injury-related. We'll revisit Vereen's status for Sunday's game against the Bears once the Patriots release their Week 8 injury report later Friday.

      Coach Chuck Pagano said Friday that Richardson (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

      Analysis: Bowen suggests that Richardson appears to be a game-time decision for Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff. If the running back ends up being scratched for the contest, or limited, Ahmad Bradshaw would be in line for extra snaps, along with backup Dan Herron.

      Watkins (groin) practiced on a full basis for a third straight day Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

      Analysis: The Jets don't have much of a pass defense this season and don't really have anyone capable of consistently covering Watkins 1-on-1, so there's certainly some opportunity for the productive rookie. That said, Rex Ryan has put together a decent scheme or two in his day, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see whoever gets the task of covering Watkins get plenty of over-the-top safety help. With Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller out, Watkins makes for a good play as he continues to build a good rapport with Kyle Orton; just don't be surprised if the Bills are forced to work in Robert Woods, Chris Hogan, and Scott Chandler into the passing plan as well.
