Alabama NT Josh Chapman played the final eight games of his senior season with a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee.

"Dr. (Lyle) Cain said he's never seen a guy that can have a torn ACL and still stay that stable," explained Chapman. The 2011 second-team All-SEC pick and Senior Bowl invitee finally underwent reconstructive surgery on Tuesday and will probably begin his rookie career on the PUP list. Chapman still intends to do the bench press at the Combine and interview with teams. Pre-injury, Chapman was projected to be a third- or fourth-round pick.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 4 at Seattle.

NFL Network reported on Sunday morning that Luck is targeting Week 6 for his return. On Monday, coach Chuck Pagano suggested Luck could resume practicing this week, but stopped short of full-on predicting it. Jacoby Brissett played well in Weeks 2-3 against the Cardinals and Browns, but he's entering a trouble spot at CenturyLink Field. Seattle's D/ST should be a popular Week 4 play.

Melvin Gordon reportedly has a "minor" bone bruise on his knee.

Gordon played a season-low 42 percent of the Chargers' Week 3 offensive snaps due to this injury. Gordon apparently suffered the injury in practice last week. Gordon's Week 4 status against the Eagles is uncertain. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Gordon "wanted to go back in" to last week's loss to Kansas City.

The Bucs say WLB Lavonte David has a "medial" ankle sprain.

It beats a high ankle sprain, which would sideline David for at least a month. On Monday, coach Dirk Koetter said David's injury was "reevaluated," and after doing so the Bucs believe he's "week to week." We doubt he'll play in Week 4.

X-rays came back negative on Matt Forte's toe injury.

It doesn't mean he's out of the woods, but it does sound like a day-to-day injury. Forte never returned to Sunday's win over the Dolphins after rushing eight times for 25 yards. We'll have another update on him by Wednesday.

Tyler Eifert (back, knee) is uncertain when he will return.

Eifert isn't looking likely to be on the field in Week 4. Eifert's upside is tantalizing, but the downside is too prevalent. He's not a must hold in 10-12 team leagues if you're hurting for a roster spot.

Rob Kelley (ribs) remains day to day.

The same is true of Jordan Reed (various). Kelley's injury is a matter of pain management, which is easier said than done. It's an extremely painful injury. Kelley did seem reasonably close to playing in Week 3. At least initially, he should be considered on the positive side of questionable for next Monday's game against the Chiefs.

Sam Bradford (knee) is uncertain for Week 4.

Coach Mike Zimmer called Bradford day to day. He also confirmed Bradford will remain the team's starter despite Case Keenum's explosive Week 3. That's hardly surprising, of course. The tea leaves suggest Bradford is going to miss another game, leaving Keenum to start against the Lions.

49ers placed OLB Tank Carradine on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.

Carradine went down in last Thursday's loss to the Rams. He can resume practicing in six weeks and return to game action in eight. Elvis Dumervil is ticketed for the biggest uptick in snaps in Carradine's absence.

Julio Jones is dealing with a lower-back injury, and will be limited in practice this week.

Jones picked up the injury at some point in Sunday's narrow win over the Lions. Coach Dan Quinn didn't seem concerned about Jones' Week 4 status, but it's obviously something to monitory. Jones could be "DNP" on Wednesday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Although Jones hasn’t scored yet, he's seen an increase in targets each week and he picked up three end zone looks this past weekend. He’ll try to find paint against the Bills but it could be a tough spot. He'll see a healthy dose of E.J. Gaines, who’s been solid. After being targeted 22 times through three weeks, he's limited receivers to a 10/79/0 line. However, Jones will also see Tre'Davious White, who's given up the 13th-most receiving yards (164) on 10 catches. Since Gaines doesn’t move, the Falcons could match up Jones with White near the end zone and provide him more scoring opportunities. The Falcons are implied to score 28.25 points.

Jordan Howard (shoulder) is absent from the Bears' Week 4 injury report.

It's a major surprise given the way Howard was favoring his shoulder on Sunday. Either way, Howard produced like he was at full health against the Steelers, and will be needed for a major workload in Thursday's game against the Packers. There's still volatility here — the Bears' offense is a weekly threat to go off the rails, and Tarik Cohen should remain the preferred passing-down back — but Howard has re-established himself in the top 20.

Giants RE Olivier Vernon is dealing with an ankle injury.

"It’s still early in the week," coach Ben McAdoo said Monday. "We have to see how he responds to treatment." Vernon missed 17 snaps against the Eagles. Vernon hasn't become a transcendent superstar since signing his five-year, $85 million contract, but has certainly been a major asset for the G-Men. He would be a big loss for Week 4 against the Bucs.
