According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Ameer Abdullah (ankle, foot) is expected to return shortly after the Lions' bye in Week 10.

Abdullah was placed on injured reserve this week with a badly sprained foot/ankle. He can be activated in eight weeks if the Lions make him their designated player to return. Barring any setbacks, that seems to be the most likely scenario. Theo Riddick is going to be the featured back in his absence with seventh-round Dwayne Washington also taking on more work.

Giants sophomore Bobby Hart is expected to start at right tackle Week 3 against the Redskins.

Hart replaced Marshall Newhouse after he suffered a calf injury late in the Week 2 win over the Saints. With Newhouse still sidelined, Hart will get the call again this week. Hart will get a tough draw against Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan, but the Giants do a good job protecting their line with quick passes.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) is expected to be cleared in "a few more weeks."

This is at least Shields' fifth concussion since entering the league, and there were some reports he was considering retiring. Schefter reports Shields received a "good report" from a concussion specialist this week, however, and will eventually return. The Packers are on bye next week, so Shields could be targeting Week 5.

With Sammy Watkins (foot) out, Marquise Goodwin is expected to be the Bills' featured receiver against the Cardinals in Week 3.

Good luck with that. Goodwin torched washed-up Darrelle Revis for an 84-yard touchdown in Week 2 but was useless otherwise, connecting on just one-of-four targets for 28 yards the rest of the night. Though Goodwin is set up for an increased workload with Watkins out and Charles Clay (knee) banged up, he has a nightmare matchup waiting against Arizona's elite secondary. It's possible he'll draw coverage from All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. Goodwin won't be a recommended fantasy play in Week 3.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins will "mix in other runners" behind starter Kenyan Drake against the Browns in Week 3.

Jay Ajayi, Isaiah Pead and Damien Williams will be left to fight for Drake's scraps on Sunday. All three of those players have been in coach Adam Gase's doghouse at some point this year. Ajayi showed nothing in his season debut against the Patriots last week, plodding his way to 14 yards on five carries while committing a costly fumble. Even with Arian Foster (groin) on the shelf, it doesn't look like he'll have much of a role.

Shane Vereen is expected to start with Rashad Jennings (thumb) sidelined for Week 3 against the Redskins.

Vereen has rarely been used in a feature role throughout his career, mostly settling for passing-down work and change-of-pace duties. However, Vereen is one of only three Giants backs to receive carries this year (the others are Jennings and Orleans Darkwa) and should be close to an every-down player on Sunday. Vereen turned 17 touches into 66 yards with Jennings banged up last week and will be a strong RB2 play in PPR formats against Washington.

The Bills will be without No. 2 CB Ronald Darby (hamstring) Sunday versus Arizona.

Darby is one of the best young corners in the league. His absence will force the Bills to lean more heavily on slot CB Nickell Robey-Coleman and sixth-round rookie Kevon Seymour opposite Stephon Gilmore. It's a huge concern versus Carson Palmer. Darby couldn't get his hamstring right with a ten-day layoff, suggesting the injury may cost him more than one game.
Sep 25 - 8:44 AM

Delanie Walker (hamstring, questionable) will warm up early to see if he can play against the Raiders in Week 3.

He's a true game-time decision. Walker missed two of the Titans' three practices this week including Friday's session. Even if Walker gets the green light, he might not play a full complement of snaps. Fifth-round rookie Tajae Sharpe would be in for an increased workload if Walker sits.
