<a href="http://cowboys.theinsiders.com/">Dallas Cowboys</a> <br><br> Lee Moving Up <br><br> Second-year back Reshard Lee is quickly moving up the team's depth chart.

In fact, the former Middle Tennessee State star could be more involved in the game plan this week against Cleveland if rookie back Julius Jones doesn't prove in practice that his ribs are sufficiently healed.

Lee had a strong training camp and head coach Bill Parcells seems comfortable using him in crucial situations as he did last week at Minnesota.

Carolina Panthers

Colbert To get his Shot

Rookie wide receiver Keary Colbert will get his chance to replace no.1 receiver Steve Smith this Sunday at Kansas City. The coaching staff believes he has a chance to be a special player and they don't plan to alter the play calling with Smith out of the lineup. They believe Colbert could be a solid deep threat when called upon which he showed he could be during training camp.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Clayton on the Spot

The initial plan with rookie receiver Michael Clayton after they drafted him was to bring him along slowly behind veteran receivers Keenan McCardell, Joey Galloway, and Joe Jurevicius. However, with McCardell still holding out, Galloway out from four to six weeks, and Jurevicius still out with various injuries, Clayton now will have to be relied upon to make a big contribution on a weekly basis. Club insiders believe he has a decent working knowledge of their offense and he'll be able to apply it on the field. The bottom line is they have to choice but to let him to continue to learn on the field because the alternatives aren't good.

St. Louis Rams

Offensive Line To Get Real Test

Last week against the Cardinals, the revamped Ram offensive line did a splendid job in the run and pass game. This week against the Falcons comes the first real test. Atlanta has three solid pass rushers in ends Brady Smith and Patrick Kerney and they'll get a solid inside push from tackle Rod Coleman.

Miami Dolphins

Feeley Could Propel Passing Game

One of the big reasons why the club gave up a second-round pick to acquire QB A.J. Feeley was because of his arm. On tape, Feeley showed that when he had good protection in front of him, he could get the ball down field accurately. There is no comparison between veteran QB Jay Fiedler's down field throwing ability and Feeley's.

Baltimore Ravens

Hymes Moves Up

With starting receiver Travis Taylor (groin) expected to miss a few weeks, third-year receiver Randy Hymes will move in to the starting lineup. The former collegiate quarterback and undrafted free agent, is fully recovered ACL surgery from last season and is coming off of a solid camp where he beat out several others (Ron Johnson and Devard Darling) for the no.3 role.
