Coach Romeo Crennel said Brady Quinn (head) is still his starter if healthy.

Quinn left Sunday's loss to the Raiders with a possible concussion and didn't return. Considering the Chiefs travel to San Diego for a Thursday night game this week, his chances of getting medically cleared appear slim. Matt Cassel got banged up by the Raiders as well, but will likely be under center for the 1-6 Chiefs. Ricky Stanzi is the third-stringer.

Bears signed RB Joique Bell.

Bell hasn't been an effective player since 2012, averaging 3.8 yards per carry over the past three seasons, but the Bears needed to add a back with Jeremy Langford (ankle) and Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring) down. Bell will probably have an immediate Week 4 role behind Jordan Howard, but won't be a recommended fantasy option in any format. Bell's arrival doesn't ding Howard's upside. Someone has to back the rookie up.

Redskins signed C John Sullivan.

Kory Lichtensteiger has a season-ending calf injury, so Sullivan will slide in as the Redskins' immediate starter. Sullivan was one of the most durable players in the league from 2009-14, but missed all of 2015 with a back injury. He remained highly effective in 2014, but is now 31. He couldn't make it to final cuts in Minnesota. The pivot will remain a concern in Washington.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is expected to be fine for Week 4.

Sanu missed the second half of Monday's win, but appears to have avoided major injury. Sanu was been a big part of the Falcons' offense through three games, but at less than full health against the Panthers' stout defense, he'll be a low-upside WR4 if he indeed suits up Sunday.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said to expect "a lot" of Le'Veon Bell against the Chiefs in Week 4.

Rather than easing him in, it looks like Bell will be full throttle in his return from a three-game suspension. "Rest assured, you're going to see Le'Veon Bell and a lot of him Sunday," said Tomlin when asked about Bell's workload. DeAngelo Williams enjoyed a strong opener but fizzled out over the last two weeks. Bell is going to be heavily involved in every facet of the Pittsburgh offense and makes for a no-brainer RB1 in all formats.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Patriots are "hopeful" Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) will both be available for Week 4 against the Bills.

Garoppolo almost played against Houston last week and has reportedly made steady progress in his recovery from a sprained AC joint. Meanwhile Brissett wasn't wearing any protective covering on his sprained thumb during the Patriots' media availability on Tuesday. The Pats only need to cobble together one more week of Garoppolo and Brissett before Tom Brady makes his return in Week 5.

Eli Rogers (toe) is wearing a boot on his left foot.

Rogers injured himself about halfway through Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. Coach Mike Tomlin is calling him "very questionable" for Week 4 against Kansas City. That will be the Sunday night game this week. If Rogers can't go, Sammie Coates would start in three-wide sets along with Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton.

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Tyler Eifert (ankle) is expected to miss Week 4 against the Dolphins.

Eifert has hinted at a return this week but with Cincinnati playing on Thursday night, time is not on his side. He hasn't gone through a full practice yet and has yet to make an appearance in 11-on-11 drills. The Bengals are still calling him a game-time decision, but he's looking closer to doubtful than probable. Even if Eifert played this week, he would have been on a snap count. Look for Eifert to return in Week 5 against Dallas.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said first-round WR Laquon Treadwell needs "to do better in practice."

"He's working, just biding his time until he gets an opportunity like how [Stefon] Diggs was last year," Zimmer continued. "I still think he's thinking about the number of steps to take on each route and things like that, being at the right depth." The Vikings have brought their rookies along slowly in recent years, but Treadwell is a different situation. Charles Johnson has offered nothing opposite Diggs, and the Vikings need more from their passing game if they are going to keep winning. Minnesota needs to get Treadwell involved soon.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo said fifth-round RB Paul Perkins "is ready to step up."

With Shane Vereen lost for at least a couple months with a torn triceps, McAdoo has promised a "committee" in the backfield. Perkins has been limited to special teams work so far, but it sounds like he has a shot to carve out a role. Orleans Darkwa is still the favorite to start while Rashad Jennings (thumb) is sidelined and see work once Jennings gets back, but Perkins is an interesting speculative add in deeper leagues.
Sep 27 - 10:36 AM

Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he is "still working through some things."

Eifert added he is trying to patient and trust the process. The tight end returned to practice last week and coach Marvin Lewis has said he is "close" to returning, but these comments make it seem like he is still a week away. That would make sense with the Bengals playing on Thursday night. Even if Eifert suits up, he is expected to be on a snap count.
Sep 27 - 10:31 AM

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill reports Dez Bryant (knee) is expected to undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Owner Jerry Jones said on the radio Tuesday morning Bryant had not undergone an MRI, but he did leave open the possibility he would have one later in the day. It looks like the test will happen, but the fact they have waited suggests there is not much concern. At this point, Bryant should still be expected to play.
