Lance Moore was held out of Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury.

Moore isn't known to have gotten hurt in Sunday's loss, so it's possible it's just a maintenance day for Drew Brees' No. 2 receiver. For now, he should be considered questionable for Sunday Night Football. His status will be updated Thursday. Moore will be a WR3 against the Chargers' run-of-the-mill pass defense if he's active.

Roddy White (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's Week 3 game against the Bucs.

White hasn't practiced at all this week, but all indications are that he'll suit up Thursday night. He isn't a player that needs to practice, especially on a short week. White will be a mid-range WR2 against Alterraun Verner and company.

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) said he plans to play Week 3 against the Eagles.

"I don't plan on missing this game," Jackson said. You can bet Jackson will do everything in his power to play his first game back in Philly. And look for the Redskins to get him some looks early against his former teammates. Jackson can be penciled into fantasy lineups. His practice status will be updated later today.

A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Green says he'll try to practice Thursday. He hopes to play this week against the Titans, but "doesn't know at this point." Green originally hurt the toe in the first quarter of the season opener and aggravated it early in Week 2. Green will likely be a game-time decision. His status will be updated again Thursday.

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.

All three players can return to their respective teams' facilities Wednesday morning and begin practicing with their clubs. Welker has already been cleared of his preseason concussion and should be back in the lineup Sunday against the Seahawks. The Broncos will have to see where Welker is at physically after he hasn't practiced with the teams for a few weeks, but we'd expect him to be out there at least in a limited role. He'll eventually be on the WR2/3 map.

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. 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 rejoin 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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Vikings "intend to bring back" Adrian Peterson once his legal case is resolved.

Fantasy owners of A.P. are left in the dark as they wait for the court's decision. It's worth noting Peterson is a first-time offender with no known criminal background, so it's entirely possible he merely gets a slap on the wrist for punishing his son too harshly. Peterson's first court hearing is not until October 8, but expect his attorneys to push hard for a quick resolution. Matt Asiata needs to be owned everywhere, as does rookie Jerick McKinnon. Now that the Vikings know they may not have Peterson for awhile, Cordarrelle Patterson's rushing usage could spike as well.

Giants placed WR Jerrel Jernigan on injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain, ending his season.

WR Julian Talley will take his place on the 53-man roster. It suggests Jernigan is dealing with a dreaded Lisfranc injury, though the Giants say he won't need surgery. Called out by coach Tom Coughlin in training camp, Jernigan had not been an effective as the Giants' fill-in No. 3 receiver this season, catching 6-of-9 targets for 40 yards through 110 snaps. Preseason star Corey Washington should now be in for a bigger role as the Giants await first-rounder Odell Beckham's (hamstring) return. A 2011 third-rounder, Jernigan is in the final year of his rookie contract. He has just 38 career catches.

The Falcons are not concerned about Roddy White's (hamstring) Week 3 status.

White didn't miss a snap in Sunday's loss. "It's not important for Roddy to practice,'' coach Mike Smith said after White sat out Tuesday's session. "We'd like for Roddy to practice, but it's all about getting Roddy ready on a short week." Even if White sits again on Wednesday, you won't have to sweat his status for Thursday's game against the Bucs.

Jaguars placed TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Lewis suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. He'll be first eligible to return in Week 12, as the Jaguars are on bye in Week 11. Lewis is wholly droppable in 14-team leagues. Lewis' backup, Clay Harbor, is still recovering from a long-term calf injury, and is questionable for Week 3. Journeyman Mickey Shuler is the next man up on the depth chart. The Jags have also promoted TE Marcel Jensen from the practice squad.
Sep 16 - 2:27 PM

Doug Martin (knee) participated in Tuesday's practice, and was running with the first-team offense.

It's a sign the Bucs fully expect Martin to go for Thursday night's game against the Falcons. The question is what his role will be. Martin struggled mightily in Week 1, while backup Bobby Rainey went off against the Rams in his absence in Week 2. For now, owners should consider Martin a borderline RB2 against a Falcons run defense that's been gashed through the season's first two games.
