Joique Bell (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

There's no indication that Bell is in danger for Sunday's game. Bell will be an RB2 against the Packers in Week 3.
Sep 17 - 4:17 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Decker stretched with the team and spent the rest of the practice off to the side doing agility drills and some light running under the supervision of trainers. Decker first injured his hamstring in training camp. The Jets have been quiet on their No. 1 receiver's status. Decker will be updated again on Thursday.

Jaguars RB Storm Johnson (ankle) is practicing in full this week.

It's his first time practicing in over two weeks. Johnson is unlikely to be active on Sunday, but could push for a short-yardage role if Toby Gerhart ever misses time.
Sep 17 - 4:07 PM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure says there's "no doubt" Roddy White (hamstring, questionable) will play Thursday night against the Bucs.

McClure has been on top of the Roddy White news all week. Although the 32-year-old hasn't practiced at all, there are no concerns about his availability for Week 3. White is a rock-solid WR2 even against Bucs LCB Alterraun Verner.
Sep 17 - 3:59 PM

Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict is back in the league's concussion protocol.

Burfict suffered a concussion in the Week 1 opener, was cleared in time for Week 2, but was concussed again. He didn't practice Wednesday, and would seem to be a long shot to play against the Titans. Consider him week-to-week. Vincent Rey will likely fill in for Burfict next to MLB Rey Maualuga against Tennessee.
Sep 17 - 3:54 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Coach Pete Carroll said he expects Michael to be "full-go" on Thursday and play in Week 3 against the Broncos. Michael will likely be the No. 3 back behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.
Sep 17 - 3:53 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

That's the good news for the Jaguars. The bad news is that Marqise Lee was forced to leave practice early after re-tweaking his hamstring injury from last week. Both should be considered highly questionable for Week 3 against the Colts. UDFA Allen Hurns (ankle) missed practice altogether on Wednesday. If none of the three can play, Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would be the starters.
Sep 17 - 3:50 PM

Steelers RB/KR Dri Archer (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Archer was held out last week, but could return after missing just one game. His status will be updated again on Thursday.
