Peyton Manning Throws NFL Record 509th Touchdown Pass (10/19 8:48 PT)

The Facts: Manning is the most prolific touchdown passer in NFL history. Manning connected with Demaryius Thomas in the second quarter Sunday night on an 8-yard toss for his 509th career touchdown pass, passing Brett Favre to set the all-time record. Reported by NFL.com

Diehards Line: Emmanuel Sanders caught a 3-yard score on Denver's first drive, and Wes Welker got deep to score on the third play of Denver's second drive. And now Manning will continute to add to that record with each touchdown pass he tosses -- adding to a record that's likely to hold up for some time to come.

Fred Jackson Aiming For Week 10; But Could Miss Up To Four Weeks (10/19 8:41 PT)

The Facts: Following up on an ongoing story. ... Accoridng to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the worst case scenario has Jackson missing up to four weeks after suffering a groin injury in today's win over the Vikings. Reported by Twitter.com

Diehards Line: Nonetheless, Rapoport adds that Jackson will target the team's Week 10 tilt, a Thursday night game, for his return. That's certainly a better outcome than the worst-case. In the meantime, we'll all be watching to see whether Bryce Brown or Anthony Dixon turns out to be the lead back in what's almost certain to be some form of timeshare in Jackson's absence. Remember, C.J. Spiller will miss the rest of the season with a broken collarbone.

DeMarco Murray Gets NFL Record 7th Straight 100-Yard Game (10/19 6:26 PT)

The Facts: There have been a lot of talented running backs in the NFL over the years, but none of them has ever done what Murray has done in the first seven games of this season. Murray went over 100 yards in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Giants to become the first player in history to run for at least 100 yards in each of his team’s first seven games of a season.  Reported by Profootballtalk.com

Diehards Line: Jim Brown had done it in six straight games, but Murray has now gone one better as his remarkable 2014 season continues. Murray needed to get his left ankle retaped after an awkward fall in the second quarter, but it has otherwise been business as usual for the league’s top rusher. Murray finished with 128 yards on a whopping 28 carries, giving him giving him 913 yards for the season. Murray stands a good chance at topping the 1,000-yard mark in the first half of the season.

C.J. Spiller To Have Season Ending Surgery Monday (10/19 6:05 PT)

The Facts: According to Profootballtalk.com, Spiller will have surgery tomorrow to repair his broken collarbone. His season is over. Reported by FootballDiehards.com

Diehards Line: With Spiller certainly out and Fred Jackson suffering an apparently serious groin injury, Bryce Brown will be the waiver wire pickup of choice this coming week. Meanwhile, Spiller's disappointing 2014 season ends early and adds to the questions about his future in Buffalo.

A.J. Green Tells Teammate He'll Play Week 8 (10/19 6:03 PT)

The Facts: Green told a teammate in the locker room after the shutout Sunday at Indianapolis that he was tired of watching from the sideline and that he plans on playing in Week 8 against Baltimore, per Fox 19 in Cincinnati.  Reported by CBSSports.com

Diehards Line: A toe injury has prevented Green from playing the last two games. But various reports earlier today suggested that Green was indeed on track to return next week. In fact, he took part in some of the pre-game warmups this morning. ... Stay tuned. More to come.

Gruden: Robert Griffin III Has A Chance To Practice Wednesday (10/19 6:02 PT)

The Facts: Griffin missed a fifth straight game Sunday due to an ankle injury, but it appears he could be in play to return Week 8. "Robert's got a chance to practice on Wednesday, so we'll have to see where he is," HC Jay Gruden said. Reported by CBSSports.com

Diehards Line: Gruden also said after Sunday's 19-17 win against the Titans he hasn't made a decision on who will start at quarterback Week 8 against the Cowboys. Third-string quarterback Colt McCoy came off the bench in the second half Sunday to replace Kirk Cousins, who had Washington trailing 10-6 at halftime. We'll obviously be watching this situation closely in coming days.

Profile

Trent Richardson Says Hamstring Isn't Bad (10/19 6:02 PT)

The Facts: Following up on a previous item. ... Richardson tweeted an encouraging thought after the win over Cincinnati on Sunday in regard to a hamstring injury that knocked him out of the game in the fourth quarter. "I'll be good," he wrote. Reported by CBSSports.com

Diehards Line: Richardson added: "Tell everyone I'm a wolverine and you can't hold a wolverine down. ..." Richardson had one of his best all-around games as a pro. He rushed for 77 yards on 14 carries and added four catches for 41 yards. ... We'll be following up on Richardson's status as needed in coming days.

Profile

Jake Locker Should Return For Week 8 (10/19 6:01 PT)

The Facts: HC Ken Whisenhunt said following Sunday's 19-17 loss at Washington he expects Locker to return to action Week 8 vs. Houston Reported by CBSSports.com

Diehards Line: Locker missed his second straight game due to a thumb injury Week 7. Whisenhunt said soreness kept Locker from making his return Sunday. Charlie Whitehurst has been serviceable in Locker's absence, but the team needs some continuity at the position. ... We'll be following up in coming days.

Profile

Reggie Bush Limited By Sore Ankle (10/19 6:00 PT)

The Facts: Bush had four carries for 10 yards in the first half of Sunday's 24-23 win against the New Orleans Saints. He had four catches for 11 yards. But he would touch the ball only one more time the rest of the way, and played sparingly during the second-half comeback. HC Jim Caldwell made it clear after the game, though, that the struggling tailback was not benched for his performance. "No, absolutely not," Caldwell said. Rather, Bush is dealing with another ankle injury.  Reported by MLive.com

Diehards Line: He was seen on the sideline testing out the right ankle during the second half of the game. He did eventually return, though Detroit (5-2) preferred to use Joique Bell in the backfield for most of the second half. "Reggie, I think you saw him a few times, he was still kind of nursing his injury just a little bit," Caldwell said. "It bothered him a little bit, but he gutted it out and kept working through it. And then there at the end, Joique, it was just a package more than anything else. ..." Other than Bush, the Lions emerged from this one relatively healthy. The only other injury of note occurred to tight end Brandon Pettigrew, who had his right ankle/foot heavily wrapped in the second half. He finished the game anyway. ... Stay tuned. We'll be following up on Bush's progress in coming days.

Philly Brown Concussed In Loss To Packers (10/19 5:55 PT)

The Facts: Brown was knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Packers in Week 7 with a concussion, according to the team's official website.  Reported by CBSSports.com

Diehards Line: Brown suffered the injury while returning a punt late in the third quarter and was unable to return. He was not targeted in the passing game. He'll have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before he'll be cleared to play again.

MRI Coming, But Fred Jackson's Injury Appears Serious (10/19 4:03 PT)

The Facts: Following up on a previous item. ... More will be known when Jackson has an MRI on Monday, but the groing injury he suffered today appears serious, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.  Reported by NFL.com

Diehards Line: There is no timetable for Jackson's return, according to coach Doug Marrone. ... Again, with C.J. Spiller suffering a broken collarbone shortly after Jackson left, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown are next in line for carries. Seems likely they'll get them starting next week.

Profile

Trent Richardson Sidelined By Hamstring Injury (10/19 4:02 PT)

The Facts: Richardson suffered a hamstring injury and did not return against the Bengals.  Reported by NFL.com

Diehards Line: The good news here is that Richardson delivered while in the game, racking up 77 yards rushing on 14 carries and adding another 41 yards on four catches while working alongside Ahmad Bradshaw. ... Stay tuned. we'll be looking for more.

Profile

Pierre Thomas Sidelined Early By Injured Shoulder (10/19 3:01 PT)

The Facts: Thomas went to the locker room with an undisclosed injury in the second half.  Reported by NFL.com

Diehards Line: Various reports are indicating Thomas suffered a shoulder injury. We'll follow up as needed.

Profile

James Starks Slowed By Ankle Injury (10/19 2:58 PT)

The Facts: Starks has an ankle injury and is questionable to return against the Panthers.  Reported by NFL.com

Diehards Line: At this point, the game is so far out of hand there was no reason to risk anybody -- let along a nicked up running back. We'll be watching for more on the possible severity of this one and bring you more as further details come to light.

Kirk Cousins Benched; McCoy Takes Over At QB (10/19 2:07 PT)

The Facts: Cousins was off to a lousy start today against the Titans, so Jay Gruden did what he previously said he wouldn’t do: He benched Cousins for Colt McCoy.  Reported by Profootballtalk.com

Diehards Line: McCoy promptly threw a pass to Pierre Garcon that Garcon turned upfield and ran to the end zone for a 70-yard touchdown. Now, as PFT notes, we have no idea who Washington’s starting quarterback is going forward: Will it be McCoy until Robert Griffin III is healthy? We shall see. But it's McCoy for the rest of today's game.

Report: C.J. Spiller's Collarbone Broken; Get Bryce Brown On Your Radar (10/19 1:45 PT)

The Facts: According to CBSSports insider Jason La Canfora, the initial diagnosis on Spiller is a broken collarbone. Reported by FootballDiehards.com

Diehards Line: If that's the case, it's safe to assume Spiller's season is over. Meanwhile, Fred Jackson (groin) is scheduled to undergo and MRI on Monday. As previously noted, Anthony Dixon is the only healthy back on the active roster today, but Bryce Brown is suddenly a player to get on your radar.

Profile

C.J. Spiller Carted Off; Done For The Day (10/19 1:27 PT)

The Facts: Spiller was carted off the field in the first half of today's game with an apparent shoulder or collarbone injury. He's been ruled out for the remainder of the day. Reported by FootballDiehards.com

Diehards Line: Spiller, taking over for an injured Fred Jackson (who was ruled out with a groin injur), took his first carry of the game 52 yards before landing awkwardly on the shoulder. He was taken to the locker room on a cart with a towel over his head. Anthony Dixon is the only back remaining on the active roster. That will likely change next week (Bryce Brown owners should take note). ... More as further details come to light.

The Facts: Jackson was carted to the locker room in the first half against the Vikings with a groin injury. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Reported by CBSSports.com

Diehards Line: Jackson carried three times for 12 yards and caught all three of his targets for 16 yards. The Bills will have to rely on C.J. Spiller and Anthony Dixon the rest of the way. ... More on Jackson as further details come to light.

Profile

Alfred Morris Injures Ankle But Returns To Action (10/19 12:50 PT)

The Facts: Morris suffered a left ankle sprain on a 5-yard carry late in the first quarter Week 7 vs. Tennessee. He was immediately listed as questionable to return. Reported by CBSSports.com

Diehards Line: But Morris, who had eight carries for 34 yards before the injury, returned later in the half. Roy Helu is next man up if Morris is limited. ... Stay tuned. We'll have more as needed.
