Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks underwent an MRI on his calf.
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton is calling for the Vikings to suspend Adrian Peterson.
Public and political pressure on both the Vikings and the NFL continues to mount. "Whipping a child to the extent of visible wounds, as has been alleged, should not be tolerated in our state. Therefore, I believe the team should suspend Mr. Peterson, until the accusations of child abuse have been resolved by the criminal justice system," read a statement from Dayton. The Vikings have chosen to reinstate Peterson. It remains to be seen if the NFL can or will step in with further discipline.
Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (quad) is considered week to week.
Whittaker and Mike Tolbert (shoulder) both went down in Week 2, leaving Jonathan Stewart to carry all the mail. But DeAngelo Willliams (thigh) and Tolbert are expected back this week, meaning Whittaker wouldn't have had a role anyway.
The Panthers expect DeAngelo Williams (thigh) to return for Sunday night's game against the Steelers.
Williams missed last week's win over the Lions after a thigh injury flared up on him. Assuming he gets through practice without a setback, he'll be ready to share the load with Jonathan Stewart in a plus matchup against Pittsburgh. Both backs will be low-upside RB3 types thanks to the cap on touches.
Lance Moore (groin) has resumed practicing in full.
Moore missed the first two games, leaving Justin Brown to act as the No. 3 receiver. The veteran should be fine to return as a fourth option behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Heath Miller.
The NFL is discussing intervening in the Greg Hardy situation.
The Panthers let Hardy play in Week 1 even though he was found guilty of domestic assault in July. He was deactivated for Week 2 once the Ray Rice situation blew up. Now the NFL is considering stepping in with discipline.
Roddy White (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday.
It's a concern with the Falcons playing on a short week and White's availability remains up in the air for Thursday night's game against the Bucs. His status will be updated again on Wednesday when the Falcons release their official injury report. Owners can protect themselves by adding Harry Douglas, who would play every snap if White sits.
ESPN New York expects Giants MLB Jon Beason (toe) to miss extended time.
Beason re-aggravated the toe injury that cost him all of training camp in Sunday's loss. He's currently awaiting the results of an MRI, but should be considered highly questionable for Week 3. Jameel McClain will replace Beason if he misses time, with Spencer Paysinger playing on the strong-side.
