49ers DE Ray McDonald's status for Sunday's opener "remains to be seen."

"(There's) due process," GM Trent Baalke said Tuesday. "We're still in fact-finding mode trying to get as much information as we can. We'll have more knowledge today and certainly more knowledge the next day, moving forward. Nothing's been determined at this point." Baalke also claimed the team would handle McDonald's discipline, not the NFL. The CBA dictates that the league handle discipline in cases like McDonald's. Much like they did with Aldon Smith last season, it sounds like the 49ers are going to let McDonald play Sunday.

Speaking Tuesday, Falcons OC Dirk Koetter said Devin Hester will "definitely have a role in our offense."

Here we go again. The Bears tried off and on for eight years to square peg Hester into a round hole on offense, and he never managed more than four scores. Hester has two 500-yard seasons to his name. Perhaps he'll catch 20 balls as a situational deep threat. He remains off the fantasy radar.

Benny Cunningham is listed as the No. 1 kickoff returner and No. 2 running back on the Rams' updated depth chart.

The new depth chart was released Tuesday. Zac Stacy remains atop the tailback pecking order, while Cunningham will work in as a breather back and focus on special teams. Cunningham and Chris Givens will line up deep on kickoffs.

Profootballtalk reports Wes Welker's positive test for amphetamines was the result of MDMA ("Molly") that had been "cut with amphetamines."

It's the same explanation Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick used for his positive PED test in August. "Molly" could be surpassing "Adderall" as the excuse du jour for those who run afoul of the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Currently recovering from a concussion, Welker can't return until Week 6, as Denver is on bye in Week 4. Emmanuel Sanders is now the clear No. 2 opposite Demaryius Thomas, with Cody Latimer and Andre Caldwell fighting for snaps as the No. 3.

NFL suspended Broncos WR Wes Welker four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Welker's positive test was the result of amphetamines. That's different than the typical PED excuse, "Adderall." Welker won't be reinstated until Week 6, as the Broncos are on bye in Week 4. It means Emmanuel Sanders is now locked in as the Broncos' No. 2 receiver opposite Demaryius Thomas, and that second-rounder Cody Latimer has bench-stash appeal as a WR5. Sanders should see significant time in the slot, with Latimer getting some run outside. It's worth noting that Latimer was behind veteran Andre Caldwell on the depth chart this preseason.

No. 2 overall pick G/T Greg Robinson will come off the bench to begin the season.

Robinson was beaten out for right-guard duties by May signee Davin Joseph. Robinson is listed as the top backup to both LT Jake Long and LG Rodger Saffold. His bench status is rather embarrassing for a team that had many other needs, but decided to go with the "best player available" at No. 2 overall. Robinson should make starts at some point in 2014.

Reserve Cardinals OG Earl Watford has "dabbled" at right tackle.

Like fellow 2013 draftee Jonathan Cooper, Watford couldn't win a job along the interior in camp. Ted Larsen and Paul Fanaika are the Cardinals' starting guards. "It gives me more flexibility on the O-line, and it’s always good the more you know," Watford said of his reps at tackle. He's a deep reserve right now.

Colts placed OT Xavier Nixon (knee) on injured reserve/designated to return.

A second-year undrafted free agent out of Florida, Nixon will be first eligible to return in Week 9. It's quite possible he ends up spending the entire season on I.R./return. His activation will depend on the Colts' needs at tackle.
