As always lots of injury news to get to so let's no waste any time.

-Shocking development in Cincy as top WR A.J. Green returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday despite still suffering from pain in the foot he injured last Sunday.  While getting back on the practice field immediately enhances Green's chances of playing against the Tennessee Titans, he still has to get through Friday's workout before we can feel more comfortable penciling him in.  If Green returns, Mohamud Sanu goes back to bench fodder.

-New York Jets WR Eric Decker missed practice again on Thursday with more hamstring trouble amid growing concerns he won't play Sunday.  Whispers out of Jets headquarters are that Decker has almost no shot to play which means Jeremy Kerley and David Nelson take on more importance.  Only Kerley would be worth starting and only as a low end WR 3.

-Still no word on whether Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron will go Sunday as he is still not completely recovered from his injured shoulder.  The shoulder has given Cameron problems since camp and cost him Week 2 and most of Week 1.  Friday should give more clarity on whether he will be able to start.

-Toby Gerhart got back on the practice field Thursday as he nurses some soreness in his ankle.  Gerhart gets an awful Indianapolis Colts defense Sunday which is just the tonic he needs to rebound from a horrendous first two weeks.  Gerhart has played so badly that it is tough trusting him as even a RB 2 this Sunday.

-A thigh issue has cropped up for Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce as he was added to the injury report.  Coming off one of his best career games last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pierce's late addition is bad news with the game so close. Justin Forsett would be moved up to a RB 2 if Pierce sits out.

-San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis no longer is using crutches for his injured ankle but he is looking unlikely to play when the team travels to Arizona to face the Cardinals.  Davis has not practiced yet this week.

-Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles did an A.J. Green and shocked everyone by doing a little work in practice Thursday.  Reports that Charles had a high ankle sprain seem to be erroneous as he would not be able to practice so soon.  Still Charles was listed as "extremely limited" by a press release and he remains unlikely to play which means Knile Davis gets the nod.

-Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarell Patterson was also a late injury report addition as he came down with a chest issue Thursday.  No words on the severity but the late addition is always a major concern. 

There you have it.  As always check back for more updates.
