Lions kept RB Jahvid Best (concussions) on reserve/PUP, ending his season.

As expected. Best can't find any doctors willing to clear him to play football again, and there is concern around the league and inside the Lions' organization that he may never return to the NFL. Best turns 24 in January. His player rep did confirm to the Detroit Free Press that Best won't stop trying. "He obviously still wants to play," agent Tony Fleming said. "We're just in a climate now in the NFL where everybody's extra cautious."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jamaal Charles' ankle injury is more of a bruise than a high-ankle sprain, and he has a "real chance" to play against the Dolphins.

Charles is still considered a game-time decision, and a true 50-50 one. And unfortunately, the Chiefs and Dolphins don't kick off until 4:25 ET, so we may not know Charles' status before the early games start. Ideally, Charles owners would have Knile Davis rostered as a handcuff. As of right now, we can't feel all that comfortable with either Charles or Davis in daily-league lineups.

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson is "hearing some rumblings" that Bernard Pierce's (thigh) availability is in "serious doubt" for Week 3 against the Browns.

Signs have been pointing against Pierce the past couple days. He was added to the injury report Thursday. We never like mid-week injuries. The Ravens then signed RB Fitzgerald Toussaint off the practice squad Saturday. If Pierce can't go, Justin Forsett and darkhorse rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro will carry the load.

Appearing on GameDay First, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Arian Foster (hamstring) is a "long shot" to play against the Giants on Sunday.

It appears Foster's league-high 55 carries have already caught up to him. As a 28-year-old workhorse with past hamstring issues, Foster simply can't hold up to this insane workload. It's likely to be the Alfred Blue show this week against the G-Men, with Ronnie Brown mixing in on passing downs. Blue has some RB2/FLEX appeal in this run-heavy offense. The Giants are missing MLB Jon Beason.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Raiders "don't expect to have" Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) available for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Patriots.

It'll be the Darren McFadden show once again in the Oakland backfield. Latavius Murray will be the change-of-pace, with Marcel Reece also getting a couple carries. MJD practiced Thursday and Friday and is listed as questionable. He already has nothing left in the tank, so if Jones-Drew isn't 100 percent healthy he doesn't do the team any good. McFadden is a RB3 this week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it's "doubtful" Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) plays Sunday against the Cardinals.

It's been shaping up this way all week. Davis hasn't practiced since leaving last Sunday night's Week 2 loss against the Bears on crutches. Derek Carrier is expected to get the start at tight end in an extremely favorable matchup.

Former Titans K Rob Bironas was killed in a single-vehicle car accident Saturday night in Nashville.

He lost control of his SUV while traveling at a high rate of speed, before crashing into several trees and ending up upside down in a culvert pipe ditch. Bironas, 36, was the Titans' kicker the previous nine seasons before being released in March. He recently worked out for the Bucs and Lions. Bironas was a first-team All-Pro in 2007 and had an 85.7 percent career success rate on field goals.

Chargers placed OLB Melvin Ingram (hip) on injured reserve/designated for return.

Ingram won't be able to practice for a minimum of six weeks, and isn't eligible to return until Week 11. It's a major downgrade to the Chargers' pass rush, as Ingram already had a sack and eight quarterback hurries through two games. A combination of Jerry Attaochu and Tourek Williams will replace Ingram opposite Dwight Freeney. Ingram missed 12 games last year with a torn ACL, and will now be sidelined at least seven games this season.

Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets.

Marshall returned to a limited practice on Saturday, putting him on track to play. Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is also listed as questionable, but is expected to start. Both are top-ten receivers against a Jets secondary that allowed 346 yards and three touchdowns to Aaron Rodgers last week. With CB Dee Milliner (quad) likely out, Marshall should match up with Darrin Walls, with Jeffery drawing Antonio Allen in coverage.
Sep 20 - 2:14 PM

The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud said QB Josh McCown "has a significant sprain" to his right (throwing) thumb.

McCown is scheduled to see a hand specialist on Monday, and "all options remain open." One of those options is presumably surgery, which may be required if McCown suffered ligament damage. McCown is expected to miss "several weeks." Mike Glennon will start in his absence.

NFL suspended DE Dion Jordan four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Jordan was on track for reinstatement this week after his previously imposed four-game PED suspension was lifted on Wednesday. He'll now serve an additional four games for testing positive for a substance of abuse. Jordan will be eligible to return in Week 7.
Sep 19 - 5:08 PM

Bernard Pierce (thigh) is listed as questionable for Week 3 at Cleveland.

Pierce did practice on a limited basis Friday, which indicates he's more likely than not to suit up against the Browns. Still, it's fair to wonder if an injury to Pierce could be the opening rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro needs to grab playing time. Pierce was ineffective for most of last Thursday night's game, before racking up garbage-time yards. Justin Forsett remains a change-up back.
