Wes Welker, Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick, and Rams WR Stedman Bailey are all allowed to return to their teams immediately and play Week 3 after the NFL and NFLPA agreed to a new drug policy Wednesday.

Sep 17 - 10:53 AM

The NFL and NFLPA have officially agreed to an overhauled drug policy.

The two sides have agreed to "wide-ranging improvements" to their policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Among other things, the league will now test for HGH and start that process this season. The final details of the new agreement on the substance-abuse policy are still being worked out. The NFL announced Wes Welker, Orlando Scandrick, and Stedman Bailey can return to their teams immediately. A first positive test for steroids, HGH, stimulants or other banned substances will result in a four-game ban. A second violation is a 10-game suspension, while a third positive test will be a two-year ban.

The Washington Post's Mark Maske reports the Panthers are considering placing RE Greg Hardy on the exempt/commissioner's permission list.

It's the same tactic the Vikings used on Adrian Peterson. The Vikings are choosing to pay Peterson while he's away, but they reportedly have the option not to. With the firestorm that has hit the NFL regarding its off-field issues, it seems likely the Panthers are going to do something with Hardy. He was deactivated for Week 2, and the Panthers didn't miss a beat. Hardy's $13.116 million salary on the franchise tag is fully guaranteed.

The Rams have started sixth-round pick E.J. Gaines at left cornerback in each of their first two games.

Gaines hasn't been noticeably exposed yet, but that time may be coming against Dez Bryant this week. RCB bookend Janoris Jenkins has been frustratingly inconsistent throughout his career, supporting Dez's matchup at the Edward Jones Dome. Even if usual LCB Trumaine Johnson (MCL sprain) returns this week, it's likely he would be eased back into the lineup versus Dallas.

Coach Gus Bradley expressed frustration with Marqise Lee and the Jaguars' young receivers.

Bradley said the whole receivers unit had "far too many" mental errors against the Redskins in Week 2. "Are we asking too much. Is there too much in the game plan?" Bradley said. "We’re all in the NFL now. The demands we place on them, they have to be able to handle that." Bradley later singled out Lee as a player who needs to execute his assignment better. Allen Robinson missed the entire preseason. UDFA Allen Hurns knows the offense like the back of his hand. Once Cecil Shorts is healthy, we'd imagine he and Hurns are the starters.

Jaguars SS Johnathan Cyprien (concussion) has been cleared to play in Week 3 against the Colts.

Cyprien was knocked out in Week 1 and missed last week's blowout loss to the Redskins. The Jaguars looked competent on defense against the Eagles when Cyprien was in the game. They've since surrendered 75 points the past six quarters. Cyprien is a big hitter and key cog in Jacksonville's young defense.

The Jaguars will start sixth-round rookie Luke Bowanko at center in Week 3 against the Colts.

Sam Young will replace since-released Cam Bradfield at right tackle. The Jags gave up ten sacks last week against the Redskins and have been swinging gates up front since the preseason. It has to be the main reason Blake Bortles remains on the bench. Chad Henne will continue to get beaten like a piñata.

Free agent RB Michael Bush worked out for the Redskins on Tuesday.

Bush was released by the Bears back in March after averaging 3.1 YPC last season and managing just eight touchdowns across 177 carries in Chicago as a short-yardage specialist. He turned 30 over the summer and is nearing the end of the line. Bush has previously visited the Patriots, but that's been it for him.
