      Quin (concussion) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Quin was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints due to a concussion and did not return. He'll now have to go through the league's concussion protocol, but with the Lions entering a bye week, the safety will have some extra time to become symptom-free.

      Thomas caught three of his four targets for 61 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Steelers.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: A product of circumstance, Thomas saw the field for a season-high 36 snaps Sunday due to Chris Conley's (knee) season-ending injury and Albert Wilson (knee) being out of commission. He still played fewer snaps than either Demarcus Robinson or Tyreek Hill, but his showing could earn him a few more looks going forward. However, it's difficult to see him repeating Sunday's performance in upcoming contests, especially if Wilson returns to action.

      Ansah did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ansah has been battling a lingering knee issue despite the fact that he's been active through the entire regular season. His absence Tuesday is likely due to that, but with the Lions on a bye this week, he doesn't have an official injury designation. Expect an update on Ansah when the team resumes preparation next week for their matchup with the Steelers.

      Woodyard contributed eight tackles (six solo) and a fumble recovery in Monday's 36-22 win over the Colts.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: This was just another day at the office for Woodyard, whose 49 tackles through six weeks have him on pace for a whopping 131. Even if he slows down a bit moving forward, the veteran linebacker should easily finish with over 80 tackles for the sixth time in his career. Woodyard's fumble recovery came on a third-quarter fumble by tight end Jack Doyle and helped set up one of Ryan Succop's five field goals.

      Succop made all five of his field goal attempts in addition to a trio of extra points in Monday's 36-22 win over the Colts.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Succop came into this contest with 46 consecutive successful field goals under 50 yards, which was tied with a streak Atlanta's Matt Bryant had a few years ago for the longest such streak in NFL history. The veteran kicker broke that tie with a successful 48-yarder in the first quarter, then poured on four more field goals from 42, 40, 48 and 23 yards to push his still-active mark to 51. Succop may not have one of the stronger legs in the NFL, but his record-setting accuracy puts him among the league's most trustworthy kickers.

      Smith hauled in his lone target for 10 yards in Monday's 36-22 win over the Colts.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Smith isn't a big enough part of Tennessee's passing game yet to be considered more than a touchdown-dependent flier. He was targeted on only one of returning quarterback Marcus Mariota's (hamstring) 32 passes while five separate receivers all had at least four balls thrown their way. Despite scoring two touchdowns already, the rookie tight end is yet to gain more than 30 yards in a game.

      Walker caught four of eight targets for 17 yards and lost three yards on a carry in Monday's 36-22 win over the Colts.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Walker was quiet in starting quarterback Marcus Mariota's (hamstring) return after a one-game absence, setting a season low in yardage. The tight end's eight targets were second on the team to Eric Decker's nine while nobody else saw more than four, so Walker was still heavily involved despite the lack of production. He hasn't scored a receiving touchdown yet this season, but that's likely to change before long considering Walker found pay dirt 13 times in Mariota's first two seasons.

      West (concussion) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: West remains in concussion protocol after suffering the head injury in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. With the Chiefs on a short week due to their Thursday night game in Oakland, the chances of West being active seem unlikely. As a result, Kansas City re-signed C.J. Spiller to add depth to the running back position.

      Smallwood (knee) participated in Tuesday's practice and expects to play in Monday's game against the Redskins, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: This is the first time Smallwood practiced since Week 4, and he should be ready to return to the field Monday barring any setbacks during this week. Eagles running backs have seen a sharp decline in usage in the passing game with both Smallwood and Darren Sproles (arm/knee) out of the lineup, but that could change upon Smallwood's likely return in Week 7.
