ESPN's Chris Mortensen said he expects Wes Welker to be a third-down or role player in Sunday's Week 3 game at Seattle.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is expected to play against the Ravens.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora has a similar report. After sitting out Week 2 in an effort to get his shoulder some rest, Cameron will be back in the mix as a mid-range TE1 as the Browns' No. 1 pass-game option. The Ravens have allowed just nine catches for 88 yards to opposing tight ends through two games.
Appearing on GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jamaal Charles (ankle) is not expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins.
Rapoport reported earlier in the morning that Charles had a "real chance" to suit up against Miami. The Chiefs will put Charles through a pre-game workout, so he's still a true game-time decision. The situation remains fluid. If Charles can't go, Knile Davis will be dropped into his role as an every-down workhorse.
The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran expects Allen Robinson to be a "full-time participant" Sunday against the Colts.
Robinson played 32-of-52 snaps last week against the Redskins, but due to injuries (Marqise Lee) and Robinson's understanding of the offense, his role could grow this week. Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is making his season debut, and Allen Hurns is coming off a sprained ankle. Both players may not be able to play the full amount of snaps. Robinson is merely a shot-in-the-dark re-draft option.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jamaal Charles' ankle injury is more of a bruise than a high-ankle sprain, and he has a "real chance" to play against the Dolphins.
Charles is still considered a game-time decision, and a true 50-50 one. And unfortunately, the Chiefs and Dolphins don't kick off until 4:25 ET, so we may not know Charles' status before the early games start. Ideally, Charles owners would have Knile Davis rostered as a handcuff. As of right now, we can't feel all that comfortable with either Charles or Davis in daily-league lineups.
Brandon LaFell said he's "frustrated as hell" with his role in the Patriots' offense.
"I’m frustrated as hell, man," LaFell said. "I want to catch passes like every other guy in here, like every receiver around the league. But the game plan is not for me to catch, it’s to block. So that’s what I’ve got to do." LaFell didn't reel in any of his six targets in Week 1, and wasn't targeted at all last week. He's been called on to block on 37-of-77 snaps. There's obviously zero fantasy value.
The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson is "hearing some rumblings" that Bernard Pierce's (thigh) availability is in "serious doubt" for Week 3 against the Browns.
Signs have been pointing against Pierce the past couple days. He was added to the injury report Thursday. We never like mid-week injuries. The Ravens then signed RB Fitzgerald Toussaint off the practice squad Saturday. If Pierce can't go, Justin Forsett and darkhorse rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro will carry the load.
Appearing on GameDay First, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Arian Foster (hamstring) is a "long shot" to play against the Giants on Sunday.
It appears Foster's league-high 55 carries have already caught up to him. As a 28-year-old workhorse with past hamstring issues, Foster simply can't hold up to this insane workload. It's likely to be the Alfred Blue show this week against the G-Men, with Ronnie Brown mixing in on passing downs. Blue has some RB2/FLEX appeal in this run-heavy offense. The Giants are missing MLB Jon Beason.
