Speaking at Monday's presser, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was evasive when asked if he's considered benching Ryan Tannehill.

Philbin left the door ajar for Matt Moore to start against the Raiders in Week 4. "We're going to chose the 46 guys we think can help us win a football game, and we'll go from there," Philbin said. We'd be surprised if the Dolphins decided to pull the plug on their supposed franchise quarterback this quickly, but there's no question he's been one of the league's worst signal callers through the season's first three weeks. Tannehill utterly failed to take advantage of a plus matchup on Sunday, and is sporting a 5.03 YPA through 124 attempts. The heat is going to keep building if he doesn't show meaningful progress this week. Tannehill is officially at risk of an in-game benching.

Speaking Monday, Arian Foster (hamstring) called himself "day to day"

Players are typically bubbling over with enthusiasm when they expect to return, so Foster should be considered highly questionable for the time being. Foster hasn't exactly been the most enlightening with the media of late, however, so it's possible this is just his form of a non-answer. Coach Bill O'Brien will update his status in Monday's presser. For now, Foster owners need to keep Alfred Blue on speed dial for Week 4.

Cardinals RCB Antonio Cromartie has been diagnosed with a hyperextended knee and bone bruise.

It's a serious injury, but at least Cromartie avoided any ligament tears. Jerraud Powers will be forced to step in opposite Patrick Peterson, and opponents will continue to attack the Cardinals through the air rather than on the ground.

Coach Ron Rivera sounded confident Monday about getting DeAngelo Williams (thigh) back for Week 4.

Williams was close to playing against the Steelers on Sunday night, but wasn't quite ready. Perhaps it was for the best, as both Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert went down with injury. The Panthers may have to ride Williams hard against the Ravens in Week 4.

Eric Decker (hamstring) remains a true game-time decision for Monday night against the Bears.

"Even if he plays, you have to wonder how effective he'll be," said beat writer Manish Mehta. Decker did get a limited practice in on Saturday, giving owners some hope. He'll likely test the hammy out in pregame with trainers before making a final call. If Decker can go and is anywhere near 100 percent, he'll have a very tasty matchup against a Charles Tillman-less Bears secondary.

Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert will both have MRIs Monday.

The Panthers aren't revealing any information yet, but both looked like knee issues on Sunday night. Neither injury appeared overly serious, but the MRI could very well find sprains. DeAngelo Williams (thigh) would get a boost in Week 4 if both Stewart and Tolbert sit.

Lions MLB Stephen Tulloch tore his left ACL during Sunday's win over the Packers.

Tulloch suffered the injury in humiliating, Bill Gramatica fashion: Celebrating a sack with an attempt at a discount double-check. The sturdy veteran had previously never missed a game in his nine-year career. "It's unfortunate, man, you're passionate about the game," Tulloch said. "You want to get up and celebrate and it happened." The Lions compensated Sunday by moving DeAndre Levy to the middle and inserting Tahir Whitehead at weak-side linebacker.

49ers CB Tramaine Brock (toe) is not expected back for Week 4 against the Eagles.

Brock's absence is good news Nick Foles and the entire Eagles offense. It shapes up as an especially good matchup for Jordan Matthews, who will get to pick on undersized slot corner Jimmie Ward.
