Steelers OLB Jarvis Jones was forced from Sunday night's game against the Panthers with a wrist injury.

His return is questionable. Arthur Moats will get the majority of snaps for Jones in base sets.

Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier suffered a right knee injury in Sunday night's game against the Panthers and will not return.

Shazier limped off the field and was helped to the locker room. The fact that the Steelers immediately ruled him out isn't a good sign. Vince Williams will replace Shazier on the inside next to Lawrence Timmons.

Rob Gronkowski (knee) played on 42-of-73 snaps in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Raiders.

It's 57.5 percent, up from the 43.1 percent Gronkowski had played through the first two weeks. Remember that Gronk wasn't a full-time player last season until five games after coming back from forearm surgery. If anyone is selling, we're buying Gronk as he rounds into form.

Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to return following the Week 4 bye.

Jones' timetable has been unchanged since breaking his foot early in camp. Given how much time he's missed, expect him to be eased in as a rotation player with Mohamed Sanu. Eventually, expect Jones to be the man on the outside opposite A.J. Green, leaving Sanu in a slot role. Deep leaguers should make a stash.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh offered praise for rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro following Sunday's 18-91-1 rushing performance against the Browns.

Although Bernard Pierce is tentatively expected to remain the Ravens' starter, he may be on a short leash going forward. "I think the results speak for themselves with Lorenzo," Harbaugh said after Sunday's win. "He was running downhill, physical and was hard to tackle. That is an element that is a big plus for an offense." Taliaferro needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

A source tells PFT that Adrian Peterson will try to accelerate his trial date.

Peterson won't be allowed to return to the NFL until his child-abuse case is fully resolved. The trick here will be to do that (and get exonerated) without exposing himself to a suspension under the personal-conduct policy. Or perhaps Peterson could get away with a short suspension by pleading guilty and making a public apology. Either way, the Vikings seem very willing to welcome him back. Perhaps we'll gain more clarity this week when a trial date is expected to be announced.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes that "in all likelihood" Bernard Pierce remains Baltimore's starting tailback when healthy.

Pierce was inactive for Week 3 with a thigh injury. "We thought we'd get him into the game, but it didn't work out," coach John Harbaugh said. "We should have a good chance of getting him back next week." Rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro piled up 91 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries (5.06 YPC) in Sunday's win over the Browns. Pierce may remain the starter in name, but he's likely on a short leash. Pierce is averaging 4.04 YPC with a lost fumble on the year.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Jake Locker will remain his starting quarterback.

Considering Locker's backup is Charlie Whitehurst, it speaks volumes that the question even has to be asked. Locker was bad again Sunday, posting a 41.9 passer rating in an ugly 33-7 loss at Cincy. This comes on the heels of a 26-10 home loss to Dallas. "One of the things that you asked me when I first got here was what would I do differently," Whisenhunt said. "One of the things was patience with the quarterback. Jake has to play better." Locker has a plus matchup against the Colts in Week 4, but he'll be extremely hard to trust.
