Jaguars claimed OL Troy Kropog off waivers from the Titans.

The Titans cut Kropog on Tuesday in order to free up a roster spot for Kenny Britt. The former fourth round selection did not see the field in Week 1. G Josh Beekman was released in a corresponding move.

Free agent C.J. Spiller will work out for the Jets on Tuesday.

Spiller played for OC Chan Gailey in Buffalo and had the best season of his career in Gailey's final year as the Bills' head coach in 2012. Spiller amassed 1,703 total yards and eight touchdowns in Gailey's spread scheme that season. In New York, he'd be insurance behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.

NBC Dallas-Fort Worth's Pat Doney reports free agent DE Greg Hardy was arrested for possession of a controlled substance in Richardson, Tex. on Monday.

Details aren't yet known, but this isn't going to help Hardy's chances of getting back into the league. The 28-year-old worked out for the Jaguars back in July. He hasn't drawn a sniff of known interest since then.

Coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson (knee) is doing "remarkably well," and he expects him to practice Wednesday and play Week 4 against the Jets.

"We feel like he's gonna be fine," Carroll said. Carroll has always seen things better than they may truly be, but all indications are Wilson will be able to go next Sunday. If he's seriously dealing with a sprained MCL, expect the Seahawks to take it easy on Wilson during the practice week. Wilson will be a borderline QB1/2 at less than 100 percent against the Jets' feared front four.

Raiders released FB Marcel Reece.

Suspended the first three weeks of the season for a PEDs violation, Reece was deemed unworthy of the remainder of his $2.6 million base salary by the Raiders. 31 years old, Reece has averaged 4.6 yards per carry and 9.8 yards per reception in his eight-year career. He should be able to latch on elsewhere as a swiss-army-knife contributor. Reece can also play special teams.

Coach Rex Ryan said Monday he "can't say" whether Sammy Watkins (foot) will be ready for Week 4 at New England.

Ryan said the Bills are still in "wait-and-see" mode regarding Watkins' playing availability week to week. The Bills will see how Watkins is feeling later in the week and make a decision thereafter. Watkins' injured foot was stepped on by a teammate last week. He may come down to a game-time decision.

Jets claimed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins off waivers from the Bucs.

Jets OC Chan Gailey has a reputation for "not using tight ends," but he also has a reputation for maximizing talent, which Seferian-Jenkins obviously has in spades despite all of his issues off the field. Seferian-Jenkins was popped for DUI last week, leading to his release from the Bucs. Picking him up is an extremely low-risk, high-upside maneuver by Jets GM Mike Maccagnan. Assuming Seferian-Jenkins is intent on continuing his football career, he should be able to earn a role in the offense by the middle of next month. ASJ still lacks re-draft value, but he remains a hold in Dynasty leagues.

Coach Ben McAdoo said Monday the Giants will use a "committee" to replace Shane Vereen (torn triceps).

Early-down grinder Orleans Darkwa and passing-game specialist Bobby Rainey are expected to see the biggest bumps in playing time, at least until Rashad Jennings (thumb) comes back. Rookie Paul Perkins has been strictly a special teamer. Darkwa is expected to start against the Vikings in Week 4 if Jennings isn't ready. The Giants have a brutal forthcoming schedule from a run-defense standpoint (@ MIN, @ GB, vs. BAL, vs. LAR, vs. PHI, vs. CIN).
Sep 26 - 3:43 PM

Coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that first-round pick Laquon Treadwell isn't playing because "he's still thinking too much."

Treadwell was a healthy scratch in Week 3, even with Charles Johnson struggling mightily. Zimmer did praise Treadwell for having a "good attitude" while riding the bench. Current X receiver Johnson has just 20 receiving yards on ten targets through three games, and was held catch-less in Sunday's win over Carolina. It's only a matter of time before Treadwell supplants him.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis believes Tyler Eifert (ankle) is "close" to returning.

Eifert got in some limited practices last week, suggesting he could indeed be ready for Thursday's game against the Dolphins. Lewis has already said Eifert will probably be on a snap count as he first comes back. Eifert will be a touchdown-dependent, low-end TE1 if he suits up for Thursday Night Football.

Michael Floyd is in the league's concussion protocol.

Floyd was evaluated and cleared on Sunday, but had a headache on Monday. It's bad news for a player off to a slow start. Floyd's status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Cardinals issue their first Week 4 injury report. An absence against the Rams would create a big opening for John Brown, who is off to a shaky start after concussion issues of his own.

Speaking Monday, 49ers coach Chip Kelly hinted Colin Kaepernick could become the team's starter once he's back to full health.

"I don’t think he’s 100 percent right now so that’s why he’s our No. 2," Kelly said. Kelly hinted change could come once Kap is "full-go." Blaine Gabbert has predictably been setting the quarterback position back decades as Kelly's starter. He's averaging 177 passing yards and has four total touchdowns. His rate stats are abysmal. Kap's game was in full-on collapse last season, but he deserves a shot to be a dual-threat in Kelly's run-heavy offense. It's starting to look like a matter of when, not if, Kap gets a chance to supplant Gabbert.
