Texans safety Shiloh Keo (Idaho) injured his shoulder during Houstons game against the Titans last week, but he is expected to play against the Jets on Monday night.

Some fantasy sites are downgrading Bucs running back Doug Martin (Boise State) because his production has diminished since he ran for 95 yards in the season opener. But coach Greg Schiano is confident that Martin has some breakout runs ahead of him.
Id like to give it a little more time until the offensive line gets settled down a little bit more, Schiano told the Pewter Report, a Buccaneers fan site. The more LeGarrette (Blount) feels good and we keep getting him in there, the more thats a different back-and-forth different styles, I think that will also help in Dougs production."
Cardinals left guard Daryn Colledge (Boise State) was part of an offensive line that allowed nine sacks in Thursdays loss to the Rams. He said Arizona is going to have to establish a run game in future contests to slow down the opponents pass rush.
You cant throw the ball 50 times and hope youre not going to get sacks, Colledge told Arizona Sports 620. We have to run the ball better. We have to do better earlier in the game so we arent behind.
Defensive end Jeff Charleston (Idaho State) was released by the Bucs last week after a short stint with the team.
