49ers waived veteran DL Datone Jones. The move frees up a spot for DE Tank Carradine to return from IR this week if he's ready.

Maybe a good sign for the Jaguars: RT Jermey Parnell working off to the side at practice on Tuesday. Last two weeks he wasn't spotted at practice. Would seem to indicate that he's getting closer to a possible return.

Sean Lee was the only player not on the field during the open portion of Tuesday's practice. Tyron Smith (groin) took the first-team snaps at left tackle, while linebacker Anthony Hitchens (groin) and safety Jeff Heath (concussion) took the first-team defensive snaps. The players are not in pads or shells for the practice with such a quick turnaround.

The Redskins also have signed running back LeShun Daniels off the practice squad, in addition to linebacker Pete Robertson and nose tackle A.J. Francis. They've also signed center Demetrius Rhaney.

The Redskins also put center Spencer Long on injured reserve. Long will need surgery on his quad tendon. His replacement, Chase Roullier, injured his hand and his status is uncertain Thursday.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matthew Stafford said Matt Prater is "as clutch as they get" and gave him a bunch of credit for Detroit's come-from-behind wins over the past couple of seasons. Prater is perfect in his career on game-winning or game-tying field goals late in the fourth quarter.

Steelers get corner help, activate rookie Cam Sutton from the reserve/injured list. Sutton is listed as a third-string corner.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Zimmer on keeping Matt Prater out of field goal range: "Have to move the goalposts back, I guess." Prater made big field goals against them last year.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Jim Caldwell believes a running game is "a quarterback's best friend." The issue, of course, is the Lions' run game has been poor under Caldwell, including 80.8 yards per game and 3.35 yards per carry.

The Redskins also are promoting nose tackle A.J. Francis to the active roster, a move first reported by ESPN980. With Terrell McClain now banged up the Redskins need more depth along the front.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Jim Caldwell called the Lions' run game "inconsistent." Asked him why his teams have yet to hit his 4.0 yards per carry mark over a season in his time with Detroit and he didn't really give a reason. Said winning is all he cares about.

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sean Lee will not play Thursday against the Los Angeles Chargers because of a hamstring strain. It will be Lee's fourth missed game of the season and he is iffy to play Nov, 30 against Washington.

Jaguars say WR Allen Hurns (ankle), RT Jermey Parnell (knee), LG Patrick Omameh (quad) among be players not expected to practice today.
