The Giants plan to work out free agent Donte Whitner.
Whiter hasn’t had any interest since late August. It’s surprising he’s went unsigned coming off an 81-tackle season. With Darian Thompson and Nat Berhe sidelined, Whitner would give the Giants a veteran opposite Landon Collins.
ESPN's Mike Triplett says CB Delvin Breaux (broken leg) is ahead of schedule in his recovery.
Breaux was expected to miss six weeks after going down in the opener. He has a chance to beat that timetable, with a possible return after the Saints' Week 5 bye a best case scenario. Sterling Moore and Ken Crawley will start against San Diego.
Saints TE Josh Hill (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 4.
It's a downgrade from last week, when Hill was listed as questionable. Coby Fleener is locked in as a mid-range TE1.
Saints LT Terron Armstead (knee, quad) has been ruled out for Week 4.
Armstead hasn't practiced the last two weeks. His injury specifics still aren't known, but he'll be held out at least through the Week 5 bye. The Saints will also be without TE Josh Hill (ankle) against the Chargers.
Jets LT Ryan Clady (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 4.
Clady was limited in practice all week. There's been no concern over his status for Sunday's game. Clady has struggled on Ryan Fitzpatrick's blindside this year, grading as PFF's No. 50 overall tackle through three weeks.
Free agent FB Marcel Reece worked out for the Patriots.
It's his first visit since getting cut from Oakland. Reece was suspended the first three games and could need some time to get back in shape. He should resurface in an H-back role.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Sammy Watkins (injured reserve, foot) doesn't need surgery.
It's good news for his chances of returning this year, as Jones fractures have a high rate of second surgery. Watkins will visit Dr. Robert Anderson, but it sounds like he just needs rest/recovery. Buffalo is hoping Watkins can return in Week 12.
Panthers DE Charles Johnson was listed as questionable with a quad injury.
Johnson did not practice Friday after showing up as limited on the injury report Thursday, suggesting he tweaked his quad in Thursday's practice. It is never a good sign when a player fails to practice following an injury, but coach Ron Rivera said he is "counting on" the defensive end playing. Johnson will likely be a game-time decision.
