Latest Headlines

Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Jets head coach Rex Ryan is "leaning to" starting Greg McElroy at quarterback over Mark Sanchez in Week 14 at Jacksonville.

One source called it 65-35 that McElroy would be under center against the Jaguars, and Gang Green's coaching staff liked the "improved pace and verve" of the offense in the roughly 20 minutes of game time with McElroy in. Ryan is set to meet with GM Mike Tannenbaum on Monday night to discuss the matter. McElroy is certainly not the long-term answer in New York, but he gave the team a definite boost. Tim Tebow is not considered a candidate for the job. Sanchez is due $8.25 million in guarantees in 2013, so he's likely not going anywhere. We'll have plenty of updates on the situation throughout the week. McElroy would not be a fantasy option.

CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms there's a "good chance" Doug Martin (knee) is inactive Thursday.

Per La Canfora, even if Martin does dress, there's "not much expectation of him being involved." It's going to be the Bobby Rainey show against a run defense that's allowed 309 yards through its first two games. Rainey can be used as a plug-and-play RB2.

Keenan Allen was added to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a groin issue.

It's a new injury for Allen, who must have suffered it in Thursday's practice. The Chargers' press corps doesn't seem alarmed, but Allen's status will obviously be worth double-checking on Friday. We're still leaving him penciled in as a borderline WR1 for Week 3.

Bernard Pierce was added to the Ravens' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a thigh issue.

Mid-week additions to the injury report are never good news, but we haven't come across any real reason to be concerned about Pierce's Week 3 status. We still expect him to lead the Ravens' committee against the Browns, with Justin Forsett mixing in frequently as a change-of-pace back. Pierce is a borderline RB2.

Toby Gerhart (ankle) returned to Jaguars practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Wednesday was just a day of rest for the Jags' lead back, who is fully expected to suit up against the Colts' leaky run defense. Although we like the matchup, it's hard to trust Gerhart as an RB2 since he's managed just 50 yards on his first 25 carries behind the Jags' porous offensive line.

Jordan Cameron (shoulder) was "very limited" in Thursday's practice, and could go "either way" for Week 3.

The word comes from OC Kyle Shanahan. Public pessimism from the coaching staff is never a good sign. Cameron should be considered no better than 50-50 to suit up against the Ravens. If he does play, he'll be a mid-range TE1 at risk of re-injury.

Jamaal Charles (ankle) returned to Chiefs practice Thursday.

Per ESPN's Adam Teicher, Charles participated in warmups, spent a "brief period" being tended to by the team's trainer and then joined position drills. Charles was apparently even "cutting through cones." It would suggest Charles isn't dealing with a high-ankle sprain at all, and that the Chiefs have been misapplying the phrase. There's still more reason to believe Charles will sit than suit up this weekend, but we obviously don't have enough information right now. Charles owners should not count on him being active for Week 3, while Knile Davis owners simply need to sit tight.

Cardinals placed RB Jonathan Dwyer on the reserve/non-football illness list, ending his season.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Cardinals are "evaluating (Dwyer's) mental health after suicide mentions in police report." Although teams have the option to withhold pay from players on the NFI list, Dwyer will reportedly still collect checks. He's almost certainly played his final down for Arizona.
Sep 18 - 2:39 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) was held out of Thursday's practice.

Coach Rex Ryan is "confident" Decker will be available for Monday's game against the Bears, but that could change if Decker doesn't progress over the next two days of practice. The current plan is for Decker to "test" his hamstring by Saturday. For now, Decker should be considered a high-risk WR3.
Sep 18 - 1:38 PM

A.J. Green (foot) returned to Bengals practice Thursday.

He was officially "limited." It puts Green on track to play in Sunday's game against the Titans, but how he bounces back on Friday will be key. His status cannot be taken for granted. Even if Green does suit up, he'll be more of a low-end WR1 than his usual top-three self. There's a chance he'll draw much-fewer targets than usual as a decoy.
Sep 18 - 1:10 PM

Vikings OC Norv Turner said he will use both Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon in Sunday's game against the Saints.

Turner added that he might use one back more than the other if someone gets a hot hand. Asiata will have the first crack to get that hot hand as he'll almost certainly start the game, but we know this low-upside bulldozer with a career 3.56 YPC won't help the Adrian Peterson-less Vikings move the ball consistently. The freaky McKinnon could, but has to prove reliable and pass protect better (one sack allowed on three pass pro chances Week 2). Asiata remains the "safer" Week 3 fantasy flex play, but McKinnon is the better long-term hold.
Sep 18 - 12:36 PM

Marqise Lee (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Lee has been battling this hamstring issue since originally tweaking it in the opener. Already in danger of losing his starting job, he'll now really be placed on the back burner and can be dropped in re-draft fantasy formats. Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle) project as the Jags starters if they're active. Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would also have roles.
