Ezekiel Elliott said he feels "way more comfortable" in the Cowboys' offense than he did in Week 1.
And it shows. After a turbulent first two weeks, Elliott exploded for 140 yards on 30 carries Sunday against Chicago. He's now tied for second in the league in rushing yards (274) and third in carries (71). "I'm a very improved player from Week 1," said Zeke. He has a great matchup against the Niners in Week 4. Consider him an RB1 going forward.
DeMarcus Ware (elbow) said his goal is to be "healthy down the stretch."
Ware is about two weeks removed from elbow surgery. He was supposed to miss 4-5 weeks but Ware said he plans to be "patient" with his injury, which suggests he could miss more time. Ware is obviously an important contributor but the Broncos have looked fine without him. They'll give the veteran as much time as he needs.
Tajae Sharpe (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Sharpe played the entire game last week, getting most of his yards on Tennessee's final drive. He should be fine for Sunday's game against Houston, but won't be more than a WR4.
ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets are "concerned" about Eric Decker's shoulder injury.
Decker is headed for an MRI after missing Wednesday's practice. Per Cimini, the injury "sounds like it could be serious." Fantasy owners should be prepared to be without Decker this week and maybe much longer. Last week's loss to Kansas City ended Decker's six-game touchdown streak.
Saints placed DE Obum Gwacham (undisclosed) on injured reserve.
Newly-signed OT Khalif Barnes will take his spot on the active roster. Gwacham hasn't played a snap yet this season. It's unclear what's ailing him.
Jets released CB Dee Milliner from injured reserve.
The Jets shopped Milliner in the preseason, but were forced to stash him on I.R. with a hamstring injury. A 2013 first-rounder, Milliner is a massive bust from the John Idzik regime, appearing in just eight games the last two seasons. His release doesn't save New York any money against the cap. 25-year-old Milliner's pedigree and measurables are enough that he'll resurface but he's a major project.
Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said there's no tear in his injured groin.
Rodgers-Cromartie suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to Washington. He's already resumed running and is hoping to suit up for Monday night's game in Minnesota. Eli Apple filled in after Rodgers-Cromartie got hurt last week but he's also dealing with an injury. New York's secondary is in rough shape right now.
Michael Floyd (concussion) has been cleared for football activity.
Floyd practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday. He's still in the concussion protocol, but will be reevaluated on Thursday. The Cardinals are "optimistic" on Floyd's Week 4 status.
