Marqise Lee (hamstring) is expected to miss Week 4.

He'll be "evaluated through the week." It's the wrong time for Lee to be hurt, as the Jags have finally given the car keys to Blake Bortles. Depending on how things shake out during his absence, there's a real chance Lee will be returning to the fourth spot on the depth chart behind Cecil Shorts, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns whenever he gets healthy.

Jamaal Charles (ankle) will practice this week.

It's not exactly a surprise since Charles practiced last week, but he should be worked out with an eye toward starting against the Patriots. The game is on Monday night, so Charles will have an extra day to get ready after he couldn't convince the Chiefs' coaching staff to suit him up for Week 3. We tentatively expect Charles to start and serve in his normal role, sending handcuff Knile Davis back to the bench.

Speaking Monday, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Denard Robinson will continue to get more reps.

Shoelace's eight carries were just one fewer than Toby Gerhart's in Sunday's loss, but the majority of his work came in garbage time. With Gerhart averaging a wretched 2.4 yards per carry on his first 34 totes behind the Jags' shaky line, Jax really has no choice but to get Robinson more involved. That being said, Gerhart is still the clear starter, with Robinson little more than an RB4/5 stash for fantasy purposes.

Panthers SLB Thomas Davis is dealing with an undisclosed injury, and won't be re-evaluated until Friday.

Coach Ron Rivera declined to say what Davis hurt in Sunday's loss, but did allow that it wasn't his three-times repaired ACL. Since he's not practicing this week, Davis can be all but ruled out for Week 4. At the latest, we'll learn his injury when the Panthers put out their first Week 4 report on Wednesday.

Jonathan Stewart has a "severely" sprained knee, and will not be re-evaluated until Friday.

He's been all but ruled out for Week 4. It's unclear if the Panthers have received Stewart's MRI results, but it appears they have. Going on what we know now, Stewart should be considered week to week. With Mike Tolbert (leg) out for Week 4, the Panthers are down to DeAngelo Williams (thigh), Fozzy Whittaker (quad) and practice-squad signee Darrin Reaves. Carolina could be in the market for a veteran runner this week.

After playing nearly 91 percent of the Falcons' Week 1 defensive snaps, OLB Kroy Biermann was in on just 65 percent in the Falcons Week 3 trouncing of the Bucs.

At first glance, Biermann's usage might seem the product of a blowout, but he saw snaps on every series with the except of Tampa's final possession. While Biermann did see some subpackage snaps, Atlanta rotated Jonathan Massaquoi and Osi Umenyiora on the field in obvious passing situations. This would make sense, as Biermann currently grades out as the No. 45 pass rushing 3-4 outside linebacker among 48 qualifiers at Pro Football Focus.
Sep 22 - 1:31 PM

Panthers RB Mike Tolbert has been diagnosed with a "hairline fracture" in his leg, and ruled out for Week 4.

He's week to week. Tolbert took a big hit late in Sunday's loss, but it was unclear how serious it was since the game was almost over. With Jonathan Stewart battling a "severely" sprained knee, DeAngelo Williams could have the Panthers' backfield all to himself for Week 4 if he can get over his thigh injury. If not, the Panthers will be down to Fozzy Whittaker (quad) and Darrin Reaves. It's a big concern for a banged up Cam Newton.

Speaking at Monday's presser, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was evasive when asked if he's considered benching Ryan Tannehill.

Philbin left the door ajar for Matt Moore to start against the Raiders in Week 4. "We're going to choose the 46 guys we think can help us win a football game, and we'll go from there," Philbin said. We'd be surprised if the Dolphins decided to pull the plug on their supposed franchise quarterback this quickly, but there's no question he's been one of the league's worst signal callers through the season's first three weeks. Tannehill utterly failed to take advantage of a plus matchup on Sunday, and is sporting a 5.03 YPA through 124 attempts. The heat is going to keep building if he doesn't show meaningful progress this week. Tannehill is officially at risk of an in-game benching.
