Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson suspended without pay for next four games for violating NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Rookie strong safety Karl Joseph walked gingerly through the Raiders locker room on Tuesday, his left big toe in pain after, he said, someone fell on it in Sunday's game. Told coach Jack Del Rio said he had a "shot" to play Thursday night in Kansas City, Joseph slowly shook his head. Then Joseph, Oakland's first-round draft pick, put on his walking boot and limped out of the locker room.

The Jets have released RB C.J. Spiller and KR Jeremy Ross. You knew there would be some fallout after last night's debacle. Spiller played in four games (31 offensive snaps). He had three rushes, one reception and five kickoff returns. This is the third time Ross has been released since the preseason. He returned six kickoffs last night, averaging 20 yards. This means PR/KR Jalin Marshall likely is returning from a concussion.

Sean Davis' first career interception came on a fourth down deep in Giants' territory. Asked what Tomlin told his rookie safety in light of a pass he could have batted down for safer field positioning, Tomlin responded, 'congratulations on your first NFL interception.'

Bob Holtzman ESPN 

As expected Jeremy Maclin is at practice right now in Kansas City. I've been told he will play on Thursday unless something unexpected happens. He's missed a month with a groin injury.

The Jaguars have added LB Sean Porter to the active roster from the practice squad and waived LB Arthur Brown.

The Lions have signed RB Joique Bell and placed CB Quandre Diggs and DE Armonty Bryant on injured reserve. Detroit also put Brandon Pettigrew on the reserve-NFI list. That's in addition to the Asa Jackson signing.

Here's an interesting connection I'd forgotten about: in 2010 Alex Smith was the 49ers starting quarterback. His backup was David Carr. At the time Derek was an unknown redshirt at Fresno State.

49ers OT Joe Staley appears to be getting a veteran's day off as the team practices Tuesday. Running back Shaun Draughn was participating in the portion open to the media but in a blue no-contact jersey. Injured safety Eric Reid (pictured) and defensive lineman Arik Armstead were doing some work on the side.

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Delanie Walker said before NFL changed course yesterday on letting the Titans wear cleats for causes, he was told by a letter three weeks ago he could not without a fine.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

The Lions are signing CB Asa Jackson off Baltimore's practice squad, as first reported by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. The Lions were searching for a corner after Quandre Diggs was injured Sunday against New Orleans. Jackson played for Lions DC Teryl Austin in 2012 and 2013.

You know the phrase "it wasn't as close as the score indicates"? That actually applies to the 31 point beat down @Colts put on The @nyjets
