    • Butler could see additional playing time...

      Butler could see additional playing time moving forward, reports. "To get him more involved offensively, we probably have to look at where some of the other plays are," interim coach Tony Sparano said. "We tried to get [Kenbrell Thompkins] involved, so his play count was up a little bit higher. We probably have to spread that out a little bit more within that group."

      Analysis: Butler played a mere 11 snaps against Arizona, four of which were rushing plays, a week after catching three passes for 64 yards and a touchdown against San Diego. He made the most of his lone target, however, hauling in a 55-yard catch that set up the team's only touchdown, the longest reception of his young career. It led Browns coach Mike Pettine to say, unprompted, that Butler "jumps off the tape" and that he's "a major threat" when the ball's in his hands, though it doesn't sound like the Raiders plan to increase Butler's role dramatically in the weeks ahead. Rather, it seems he will just take away some snaps from Thompkins, who was on the field for 30 plays last week.

      The Raiders would like to get Jones-Drew more involved, reports. "We need to get [Jones-Drew] more snaps," interim coach Tony Sparano said. "I think the plan is to try to get him involved a little bit more if we can do that now. One of the things we have to do is in order to get people more snaps, we have to play more snaps."

      Analysis: Sparano said something similar earlier this month, but Jones-Drew has touched the ball just eight times in two games since. Thus, it's hard to know how much to read into these comments, but it does sound like the team would, ideally, get Jones-Drew some more reps as a way to keep Darren McFadden fresh and perhaps spark its last-ranked rushing offense. McFadden is likely to continue seeing the bulk of the work.

      Although Griffin (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday, Washington still plans to start Colt McCoy against Dallas on Monday, the Washington Post reports.

      Analysis: Griffin's return is likely imminent regardless of whether McCoy plays well against Dallas on Monday, but for now it does appear that McCoy will at least get Monday's game for an extended audition. Unfortunately for Griffin owners and those looking to stream McCoy this week, the situation might not get conclusively settled until Monday.

      Thomas (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Scott Brown of ESPN reports.

      Analysis: With Thomas and Ike Taylor out, the Steelers will be fairly short-handed in the secondary when they take on Andrew Luck. This is a result of a hamstring that will probably continue to nag Thomas for a while, as he had been limited in practice all week.

      Johnson (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

      Analysis: Johnson is having the best IDP season of his career so far, totaling 36 tackles and two interceptions in six games, but he figures to see his opportunities lessened in the upcoming games as Tyrann Mathieu (knee) reaches full health and rookie first-round pick Deone Bucannon catches up to the speed of the NFL game.
