Green, Shane Vereen and Vincent Jackson are about it -- but keep refreshing this post until those 1 p.m. Eastern kickoffs as we pass along anything worth noting.

Report: Colts WR Reggie Wayne might miss 1-2 games due to elbow injury

Mike Chappell of ABC 6 in Indianapolis has been told by a knowledgeable source that wide receiver Reggie Wayne could be out for a week or two because of his elbow injury. Wayne suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game against Cincinnati. He played through it and ended up catching four passes but for only 15 yards and he dropped at least two other targets. On Monday, Wayne underwent an MRI on the elbow, the results of which have not been revealed.
If Wayne misses the next two games, he won't play until after the Colts' bye in Week 10.

RB Denard Robinson shines in Jaguars' first win

With RB Toby Gerhart still sidelined, Jacksonville's much-maligned running game got a huge effort from RB Denard Robinson in Week 7, as the Jaguars got their first win of the season in a lop-sided 24-6 home win over the Cleveland Browns. On the day, Robinson ran for 127 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries. In true Michigan fashion, the former Wolverine didn't pass on the opportunity to take a jab at his college rival Buckeyes. When asked about his career day, Robinson joked, "Good to do it against an Ohio team."
