Ravens activate running back Danny Woodhead (hamstring) off injured reserve a day before Sunday's game in Green Bay. He is one of the Ravens' biggest mismatches for defenses and will provide a boost to the NFL's worst passing offense. Baltimore released tight end Gavin Escobar to make room for Woodhead.

Bengals signed rookie LB Hardy Nickerson to the active roster off the practice squad and waived longtime veteran DT Pat Sims. Sims, a 10-year veteran, was the Bengals third round pick in 2008 and spent his first five seasons in Cincinnati, signed with the Raiders for a few years and returned to the Bengals in 2015. He saw a lot of playing time early in the season over second-year DT Andrew Billings.

Friday night, John Elway also supported Broncos coach Vance Joseph's efforts. When asked if his confidence in Joseph has wavered with the current losing streak, Elway said: "Nope, you know there's going to be growing pains in the head coach and especially the first-time head coach as well as we've got a lot of youth on the staff when it comes to coordinators, too, so there's growing pains there. Just like with players you've got to give them a chance to grow and get better and learn from certain situations. Obviously, it's been a little bit tougher situation but sometimes you learn a lot more in tougher situations than you do when things are going good. So Vance in my mind is doing just fine and continuing to get these guys to fight hard and the energy is still there, so we'll work our way through it.''

Some strong words from Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway Friday night on the team's current losing streak: "I think at this point we're still trying to figure out how we can get through it. So, there's no question at the end of the year we'll evaluate it and we'll look back and see what happened. But I will tell you I think we got a little bit soft. To be dead honest with you, we got a little bit soft. We went 4-0 in the preseason, we started out 3-1, then we get a bye week and if you exhale in this league, you're in trouble. To be dead honest with you I think we exhaled and it's hard to recover from that. So, it's a lesson that hopefully we all learned and prevent it from happening again.''
