Still no Lavonte David. Still no Chris Godwin. Still no Justin Evans. Jason Pierre-Paul had a club on his hand (Dirk Koetter said he had a sore finger). Also, Ryan Jensen has a hamstring injury now.

The Packers will have kick returner Trevor Davis available tonight against the Seahawks. He was added to the roster off injured reserve. They brought him back to practice last week after his hamstring injury before the opener. Davis was one of only three players in the league to rank in the top 10 in the NFL in both punt-return average (No. 2, 12.2 yards) and kickoff-return average (No. 9, 22.7 yards) from 2016-17, according to the Packers.

DeSean Jackson said "Giants fans still hate me to this day" for his 65-yard punt return for a touchdown that knocked them out of the playoffs in 2010. Dirk Koetter said he always has the green light to return punts so he may just line up for one Sunday.

Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said he would have liked for Derek Carr to extend the 4th-and-5 play late in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, rather than throw it away as he did. "Especially in that situation, the fourth down situation, you try to keep the play alive as long as you can," Olson said. "You sprint out and scramble and try to get it with your feet or reverse direction but try to put the ball in play to somebody.” The playcall was a short pass to running back Jalen Richard. But with Richard covered and pressure coming, Carr threw the ball at Richard's feet. Coach Jon Gruden, meanwhile, blamed himself earlier in the week. “It was a terrible call by me," Gruden said. "There wasn't a lot he could have done. He could have been Fran Tarkenton and done a 360 and reversed the field a few times. There wasn't much there. You got to (blame) the play caller with that outcome.” Carr stood by his decision. "I ripped my chin strap off," he said. "I said some things. Everyone wishes it was different, but it is what it is. I wish I could explain it in a better way, but it sucks.” And this from Carr's brother David on Twitter: "It's a screen, it's covered, throwing it at his feet is the only option."

Eagles WR Mike Wallace (broken leg) no longer wears a walking boot. Says he can run a little bit "but not fast," he joked. Said "plan" is to play this year.

The Cowboys worked out defensive lineman Tank Carradine on Thursday but multiple sources said they will not sign him at this time. The Cowboys have a number of injuries on the defensive line that could leave them shorthanded Sunday. Carradine was with the Oakland Raiders until his release last month.

Sean McVay was not too proud to admit Thursday that he's a big fan of the Chiefs' offense, calling it one of the best in the NFL. McVay watches tape of Andy Reid's system "Week-in and week-out" and every single week finds himself saying, "Ohh, that's pretty good." Borrowing plays is a common practice in the NFL, and McVay said some of the Chiefs' plays can certainly be found in the Rams' playbook. "I'd be lying if I said I hadn't stolen some of their stuff."

CBS local in L.A. held an on-air fundraiser that raised more than $1 million for the fire victims in the greater LA area. Rams players Jared Goff, Aaron Donald, Brandin Cooks, Mark Barron, Johnny Hekker and Andrew Whitworth participated remotely from Colorado Springs, as did COO Kevin Demoff and GM Les Snead.

Falcons CB Desmond Trufant said it would be a totally different season for him had he not dropped a handful of what would have been interceptions.

Robert Griffin III was only quarterback practicing for Ravens on Thursday. Joe Flacco (hip) and Lamar Jackson (stomach issue) were both absent. This adds more intrigue to Baltimore's QB situation heading into Sunday's game.

Panthers tight end Greg Olsen hadn't heard the story about the Sun Valley Middle School football player who had a serious neck injury during a kickoff earlier this month in the 8th grade championship game against Holy Trinity Middle School until he met him this week at his annual beanie giveaway at Levine Children's Hospital. But the three-time Pro Bowler was impressed "with the outlook and attitude'' of the player for "not counting everything he's lost and counting everything he still has.'' Olsen presented the player, who according WCNC -TV in Charlotte is regaining movement in his arms and is in stable condition, a beanie in one of his many projects that benefits the children's hospital.

It's a good sign to see Dre Kirkpatrick practice in a limited capacity as he progresses through concussion protocol, however, it does appear the linebackers will continue to be shorthanded. Not only is Nick Vigil still out, but Preston Brown didn't practice against and Vontaze Burfict and Vincent Rey were both limited during Thursday's practice. Who does that leave? Jordan Evans, Hardy Nickerson and practice squad players Chris Worley and Brandon Bell.

It's definitely troubling for the Bengals to see Joe Mixon pop up on the injury report with a knee injury. Mixon wasn't there during the open portion of practice and was officially listed as limited. The Bengals need all hands on deck with A.J. Green, Tyler Kroft and Josh Malone all out on offense. The Ravens are better against the pass than they are against the run, so it would be a loss not to have Mixon, who was actually running well against the Saints in the loss last week.
