Bears placed CB Kyle Fuller on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Fuller underwent a "scope" in mid-August, but has healed much slower than expected. The Bears, who are outright deceitful with injury information, may not have disclosed the true nature of Fuller's operation. It's another gut punch for the league's most injured defense. Fuller played 1,038 effective snaps last season. He could be designated as the Bears' "return" player off injured reserve, but for now Chicago must move forward with Tracy Porter, Jacoby Glenn and Bryce Callahan as its top three corners. It's not a good situation. Fantasy players need to keep targeting the Bears' defense.
Redskins signed OT Vinston Painter.
Painter's only three career appearances came in 2014. The Redskins need a body with LG Shawn Lauvao banged up.
Reggie Bush has played two snaps since Week 1.
With Marcell Dareus and Seantrel Henderson both coming off suspension next week, ESPN's Mike Rodak believes Bush's roster spot is in danger. Bush has had a long, productive career, but he's just about out of gas.
Arian Foster (groin) remained sidelined Tuesday.
Foster will miss Thursday's game against the Bengals. The Dolphins have said they will stick with a four-man rotation at running back, rendering Kenyan Drake and Jay Ajayi RB3 no-gos. Foster should be considered 50-50, at best, for Week 5.
Dolphins TE Dion Sims (ankle) remained "limited" on Tuesday.
Sims is expected to be fine for Thursday's game against the Bengals. He has some TE2 appeal with Jordan Cameron (concussion) sidelined.
Cardinals waived S Marqui Christian.
The No. 167 overall pick of the draft, Christian had yet to be active this season. Christian is trying to make the NFL leap from small-school Midwestern State, and evidently isn't ready. He'll almost certainly be signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn confirms Matt Ryan (thumb) will be fine for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Ryan could have his practice reps scaled back a bit this week, but his status is not in doubt. Ryan will be more of a QB2 than QB1 against Carolina's still-elite defense.
The Falcons expect Julio Jones (calf) to practice more in Week 4.
Jones got in two DNPs and a "limited" before catching one pass for 16 yards against the Saints. It was a brutal letdown for fantasy owners, but one Jones escaped without setbacks. He'll be an elite WR1 for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
