Sunday morning updates -- Week 7

Greetings, Fools. Just got breakfast in bed for my birthday (a day late, but we were crazy busy yesterday), so life is good.

Let's get on to the news.

AJ Feeley will lead the Rams against Dallas, while Bradford sits with his high ankle sprain. That's bad news all the way around for the Rams, who won't score as much as the Cardinals did against the Rangers last night. Sit everyone except Steven Jackson, who probably won't be so great either.

Kyle Boller gets the start for Oakland while Carson Palmer shakes off the rust. No surprise here. Look for a lot of Darren McFadden -- and maybe even more work from Michael Bush -- today.

In case you hadn't heard, Tim Tebow gets his first start of 2011 in Miami today. Not a bad place to get his feet wet.

Jackie Battle will be the lead back for KC against the Raiders. He's a decent flex start for the desperate. I still like the Chiefs' passing attack better in this one.

Peyton Hillis is OUT for the Browns today. Montario Hardesty will be the starter for Cleveland against a solid Seahawks run defense. Hopefully you have better options, because Hardesty has looked downright mediocre so far.

It will likely be a three-headed monster in the Redskins backfield today, with Ryan Torain seeing the bulk of the carries. That said, if Hightower or Helu get the "hot hand," Torain could be watching from the sidelines.

Joseph Addai (hamstring) will probably suit up for tonight's game against the Saints, making everyone in the Colts backfield (including Carter and Brown) even worse plays than usual.

Maurice Morris will start over Jahvid Best today. The news just keeps getting worse for Best, as rumors suggest he could be lost for the season due to concussion issues.

No Andre Johnson today. Julio Jones also is inactive.

Antonio Gates will be back today. Though they are saying he will be limited with his injured foot, he's still a better tight end play than 90% of your other options.

Looks like Dave Rayner will kick for the Raiders this afternoon, if Janikowski is declared inactive as expected.

That's it for today. Inactive reports coming via Twitter (@ladd_biro) next.
