Calvin Johnson    WR   Detroit Lions
 
Johnson's (ankle) status for Sunday's game against Atlanta remains up in the air, the Detroit Free Press reports. "It's not going to be a thing of degrees," coach Jim Caldwell said. "It's when they say he's cleared and he's ready to go and he's feeling great. When the doctors give us that OK, that's when it's going to happen. And there's not going to be a whole lot of in-betweens."

Johnson missed his second straight game Sunday as he continues to nurse an ankle injury. Caldwell refused to specify how close Johnson was to playing against the Saints, but he said he "absolutely" expects Johnson to travel to London with the team for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. Whether he'll play in that contest remains to be seen, however, and a decision likely won't come until much later in the week. The decision is obviously difficult for the Lions, and it's complicated by the team's looming Week 9 bye.
Toby Gerhart    RB   Jacksonville Jaguars
 
Gerhart (foot), who missed the last two games, will be evaluated on Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Jackson (ribs) was among the Bucs who did not practice Monday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

More on Jackson's status no later than Wednesday's practice, but at this stage, there is nothing to suggest that his availability for Sunday's game against Minnesota is in any danger.
Andre Ellington    RB   Arizona Cardinals
 
Coach Bruce Arians confirmed Monday that Ellington came out of Week 7's game with sore ribs, but noted that the running back did not suffer any structural damage, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ellington's practice reps have been managed of late in any case, so expect him to be limited (or even sit out) Wednesday's session, but so far there is nothing to suggest that the running back's Week 8 availability will be impacted by his rib issue.

Coach Chuck Pagano relayed Monday that Richardson (hamstring) has an MRI on tap, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Richardson has downplayed his hamstring issue thus far, but until an MRI confirms the running back's optimism, his status will be worth monitoring in advance of Sunday's game against the Steelers.
