Coach Tom Coughlin confirmed Jon Beason (foot) will miss the Giants' Week 3 matchup with the Texans.

Beason's season was thought to be in jeopardy after he aggravated the foot injury that sidelined him most of the summer against the Cardinals Week 2. Beason shed his protective walking boot on Thursday, however, and spoke as if he could play this week. There is still no timetable for Beason's return, but it now appears he will be able to get back on the field this season. Jameel McClain should start at middle linebacker in Beason's absence.

ESPN Boston admits it's "tough to tell" which running back will lead the way in Sunday's game against the Raiders.

This should be a perfect spot for the Patriots to ground-n-pound with big back Stevan Ridley. But Bill Belichick often zigs when everyone assumes he'll zag, leaving a little risk in both Ridley and Shane Vereen. Beat writer Mike Reiss does note that the Patriots "like their chances" to run against a Raiders team that has already given up 100-yard games to Chris Ivory and Arian Foster this season. In theory, there's enough room for both of the Patriots' backs to eat.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker says Charles Clay (knee) looks "far from being 100 percent."

Clay has just nine catches for 58 yards through two games, struggling to separate or do anything after the catch. He's still fighting a knee injury he sustained way back in a team scrimmage over the summer. Walker suggests that Clay has been playing hurt in an effort to help his team, but that's not going to help his box score.

The Philly Inquirer suggests Riley Cooper's role in the Eagles' offense has been diminished this season by the addition of Darren Sproles and ascension of second-year TE Zach Ertz.

And it doesn't help that Cooper has played very poorly. He has just 37 yards on 11 targets and dropped a touchdown in last Monday night's win over the Colts. Cooper basically admitted he's a role player in Chip Kelly's offense. "Those are the type of people he wants in here," Cooper said of Kelly. "He doesn't want ... me complaining about, 'I'm not getting this many catches.' I just want to win games." Cooper is a WR4/5 in fantasy leagues.

OC Joe Lomardi said he's like to see Reggie Bush get more opportunities.

Through two weeks, Joique Bell has out-snapped Bush 77-62 and out-touched him 32-23. It makes sense as Bell is the more complete and younger back, but Bush makes for a fine Week 3 play. He's home on the fast Ford Field turf, is facing a Packers defense that gives up chunk plays and the game has the week's highest over/under (52).

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano has gotten indications from the coaches that Rashad Jennings will be asked to help in pass protection this week.

The Giants' shaky offensive line is going to need all the help they can get dealing with J.J. Watt. It appears they'll ask Jennings to stay in and help, or at least chip. Jennings, who has four catches in each of the first two games, may not get there this week.

Andre Ellington (foot) is reportedly walking better and less sore this week.

Even on a bad foot, Ellington has rushed 28 times for 144 yards (5.14 YPC) and caught six balls for 37 yards through two games. Now he's getting healthier, has a home game against a 49ers defense that is far from dominant Sunday and then gets the Week 4 bye to rest up. Owners just need to realize that Ellington will lose goal-line work to Jalen Parmele.

Coach Ron Rivera said he's concerned with Jerricho Cotchery's (hamstring) status for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Steelers.

Cotchery did not practice Friday and will be reevaluated Saturday. If he can't go, we can expect Kelvin Benjamin to get another 2-3 targets. Benjamin was already a strong Week 3 play as he'll see a lot of burnable Steelers CB Ike Taylor.
