ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio considers it unlikely that Adrian Peterson will ever play for the Vikings again.

Peterson won't be allowed to play until after his child-abuse case is resolved. Florio is saying the case is likely to go to a trial, and therefore wouldn't be over until well after the season. However, Peterson has plenty of incentive to work out a plea deal as soon as possible if it means the NFL will reinstate him. As for 2015, Peterson is owed $12.75 million -- an untenable number for a 30-year-old running back.

ESPN 1500 Twin Cities says Jerick McKinnon "should definitely be more of a factor starting Sunday."

Anyone who has seen Matt Asiata stagger his way to a career 3.56 YPC knows this should be the case. The question is if the Vikings see it. Perhaps now that the coaches have a full week of preparation without Adrian Peterson, they'll install the freaky McKinnon as a major part of the gameplan. He's not startable yet in fantasy, but he's a must hold. If the Vikings want to move the football on the ground, McKinnon is their best bet.

The Tampa Bay Times says Bobby Rainey will start Thursday's game against the Falcons.

"Not just because of Doug Martin's knee. Coaches really like [Rainey]," said beat writer Rick Stroud. To be clear, this looks like educated speculation, not sourced reporting. Coach Lovie Smith has declined to name a starter, only saying he wants to use a committee. But it's not that far-fetched to think that the Bucs want to ride Rainey's hot hand after he put up 174 total yards on 25 touches in Week 2. It's a messy situation, but at this point we'd give Rainey the edge as the better flex play in this cake matchup. Martin is averaging a pathetic 3.41 YPC over the last two seasons (seven games).

Marqise Lee (hamstring) will not practice Thursday.

Lee, battling this issue for a couple weeks now, was a limited participant on Wednesday. He's a droppable player as he's been passed by Allen Hurns and might get passed by Allen Robinson on the depth chart.

Damien Williams will be the Dolphins No. 2 running back Sunday.

With Knowshon Moreno (elbow) out 4-8 weeks, Williams is on the deep league radar. He went undrafted out of Oklahoma after getting kicked off the team for multiple team violations, but possesses 4.45 speed and excellent receiving skills. The jury remains out on Miller as a workhorse kind of back, leaving Williams with a real shot at 10 touches this week.

Coach Sean Payton said Khiry Robinson will be "ready for the workload" with Mark Ingram (hand) sidelined.

The Saints also showed confidence in Robinson late last season, giving him 21 carries in their two playoff games. Now he's staring a monster opportunity in the face as he'll pair with passing back Pierre Thomas for the next month. A powerful, elusive runner that's underrated in the pass game, Robinson is definitely on the flex radar for this week's home game against the shell-shocked Vikings. Ingram scored three goal-line touchdowns in the first two weeks, a role Robinson is expected to take over.

Coach Marvin Lewis said he expects A.J. Green (toe) to play in Sunday's game against the Titans.

Green was less optimistic than his head coach on Wednesday, saying he "doesn't know at this point" if he'll be able to suit up. Note that the Bengals have a bye in Week 4. "It's just getting the range of motion back on that big toe," said Green. "That's the biggest thing, because I'm always on that. I feel good. I still have some treatment to do, but it's getting better." The Pro Bowl wideout is expected to test the toe out during Thursday's practice. If he ends up as a game-time Sunday, we'll know his official status by noon ET.

Eric Decker did not even need an MRI on the hamstring he injured in the Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

It's pretty surprising considering this is an aggravation of the right hammy issue that bothered Decker during training camp. But no need for an MRI confirms that this is a very mild strain, one that he could very well play through on Monday night. We'll know more based on practice reports over the next three days.
