      Wright, who played the last two games at middle linebacker in place of the injured Bobby Wagner, will move back to this usual outside linebacker position this Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, the Associated Press reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Wright's OLB replacement, Malcolm Smith, suffered a groin injury last week, so Wright will go back to his usual spot and rookie Brock Coyle will start in the middle. Wright's production was about the same in the middle as it was on the outside this year. He averages seven tackles per game.

      San Diego Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers (concussion), outside linebacker Dwight Freeney (knee), inside linebacker Manti Te'o (foot) and cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder) were all non-participants at Wednesday's practice.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: A pleasant surprise through the first four weeks of the season, San Diego's defense has faded as the injuries have piled up. A once-excellent secondary faces the prospect of playing another game without two if its top three cornerbacks, while Te'o is seemingly in line to miss a fifth consecutive contest. Freeney figures to suit up, but valuable reserve outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) may not be able to do the same. While Sunday's road game against the Miami Dolphins doesn't make for an especially daunting matchup, it will be difficult to trust the San Diego defense until the injuries start to clear up.

      Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Both healthy and extremely talented, the Denver defense held up well last Thursday against the San Diego Chargers, recording two sacks and two interceptions in a 35-21 victory over one of the NFL's best offensive teams. Of course, as great as the unit has looked over the past few weeks, there's no sugar-coating a Week 9 road matchup against the red-hot New England Patriots offense.

      Lynch (non-injury) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Once again, Lynch is taking a seat during the first practice of the week, which is par for the course for the Seahawks' lead back. Through seven games, though, he's been unable to uphold the standard set in his three full seasons with the organization (2011-13). During that span, he averaged 19.2 carries and 1.8 receptions per contest, but his 2014 marks ring in at 15.9 and 2.4, respectively. A turn in his fortunes may be on tap Sunday against the Raiders, who have yielded nine total touchdowns in seven games to running backs this season.

      Read Analysis

      Jefferson (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, as he has yet to be cleared from the league's concussion protocol, the Cardinals' official site reports. After drills, coach Bruce Arians said, "He feels very good today, so we feel encouraged that he'll go through the test tomorrow."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: If he passes the test, Jefferson will likely follow in the footsteps of fellow defensive back Patrick Peterson, who cleared the protocol for head injuries Wednesday and turned in a limited practice. Jefferson has so far fended off 2014 first-round pick Deone Bucannon for starts at strong safety, but his current medical concern could provide an opportunity for the rookie to take over. In any case, Jefferson's status could be clarified as early as Thursday, so stay tuned.

      Peterson passed his concussion test Wednesday and proceeded to practice on a limited basis, the Cardinals' official site reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Peterson relayed that he lost consciousness for a brief time after Sunday's hit, which came courtesy of a drilling placed upon the Eagles' Jeremy Maclin from Peterson's own teammate, Deone Bucannon. While Peterson may not practice fully by week's end, his Week 9 availability could be confirmed upon the release of Friday's injury report.
