Washington placed lineman Saadhiq Charles and receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden on injured reserve. One source said Gandy-Golden could be out a while because of a hamstring injury. Charles hurt his kneecap on the second play last week—in his first start. Washington had hoped he'd return after the bye week but, with a three-week minimum stay on IR, he'll miss the Giants game in two weeks. Washington also signed receiver Tony Brown off the practice squad.

Jets' projected inactives for tomorrow: WR Jamison Crowder, K Sam Ficken, G Alex Lewis, T George Fant, QB James Morgan and DT Nathan Shepherd. Analysis: With Ficken injured, PK Sergio Castillo, 29, will make his NFL debut. Background: West Texas State, CFL and XFL. The Jets signed him to the PS on Oct. 14 as their "COVID-19 kicker." Good thing, because they wouldn't have been able to get an outside kicker through the COVID-19 protocols in time for the game.

The Rams signed K Kai Forbath earlier this week, but due to COVID protocol, he won't be in the facility until Sunday. Sean McVay said that rookie Samuel Sloman will be their kicker again on Monday Night Football versus the Bears.

The Patriots elevated OLB Tashawn Bower (standard elevation) and DT Nick Thurman (COVID-19 replacement) from the practice squad Saturday. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Bower entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of LSU in 2017, and spent the first 2.5 years of his career with the Vikings (7 career games). He initially joined the Patriots practice squad last November, and his elevation could be an indication DE Derek Rivers (back) won't play.

Falcons' WR Julio Jones, who was limited in practice time last week due to a hamstring injury, will play Sunday vs. the Lions, per source.

The Patriots officially activated starting center David Andrews off injured reserve on Saturday. Andrews has missed the last three games after undergoing surgery on the thumb of his right snapping hand. This is a strong indication that he will be back at center for Sunday's home game against the 49ers. The Patriots have had four different starting o-line combinations in their first five games, so this is a step toward what they hope will be more stability.

With the release of CB De'Vante Bausby Saturday the Broncos have cleared the roster spots needed for CB A.J. Bouye, DE DeMarcus Walker and Dre'Mont Jone to return from injured reserve to the active roster. The Broncos released DE Sylvester Williams and DE Timmy Jernigan earlier in the week. Bouye is expected to start Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

A slew of roster moves for the Packers but perhaps most importantly, they activated LB Kamal Martin off IR, signed G Ben Braden and DL Billy Winn to the active roster from the practice squad and elevated S Henry Black and RB Dexter Williams from the practice squad to the active roster for gameday. Also, LB James Burgess has cleared COVID protocols after signing him off the Falcons' practice squad but have a roster exemption.

Lions make a lot of roster moves, including activating Bo Scarbrough and Mike Ford while releasing Kenny Wiggins.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (chest) did not travel to Houston. He will miss his first game since 2017 and just the seventh of his eight-year career.

The Panthers expect Joey Slye to play on Sunday at New Orleans but just in case they signed kicker Taylor Bertolet — and on his birthday. Slye came off the COVID-19 list on Friday.
