A "more than reliable source" tells 610 Houston's Nick Wright that Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel and GM Scott Pioli have both been informed they will be fired at season's end.

Although he's now based in Houston, Wright is a former Kansas City radio host with a history of breaking Chiefs news. Similar to the situation in San Diego, we're unlikely to get official word on Crennel and Pioli's fate until after Week 17, but there's zero reason to believe either will be retained. Pioli has undermined an otherwise promising roster by failing disastrously in his quest to find a quarterback, while Crennel has proven every bit as overmatched as he was in Cleveland. Retaining Crennel after he guided the Chiefs to a 2-1 finish as interim coach in 2011 could end up as a job-killing decision for Pioli. His reported bizarre behind-the-scenes behavior surely did him no favors with owner Clark Hunt, who will be undergoing his second GM search in five years. For what it's worth, Wright's report has been shot down in several quarters, but that's to be expected.

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.

Jalen Parmele will be the Cardinals' short-yardage and goal-line back going forward.

That's what Bruce Arians announced on Friday. Stepfan Taylor will not get goal-line carries in Jonathan Dwyer's absence, and nor will Andre Ellington. A 28-year-old journeyman, Parmele carries little or no fantasy valeu.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians announced Friday that Drew Stanton will start at quarterback against the 49ers.

It's fine news for Larry Fitzgerald but concerning for Michael Floyd, whom Stanton missed on five of his six targets in last week's win over the Giants. Floyd had a 19-yard reception on the first play of the game, and from that point on turned in a goose egg. Until Carson Palmer (shoulder) returns, Floyd can only be viewed as a fantasy WR3. Fitzgerald is a WR2/3 option.

Coach Lovie Smith stated Friday that Josh McCown remains the Buccaneers' starting quarterback when healthy.

Shades of Rex Grossman. "Josh is our starter," Smith insisted. "We're looking at one game right now. It would be simple if Josh was the only guy who played bad. It seems like the only guy I'm asked about, 'is Josh your starter?' You can ask that about quite a few people, starting with me. Am I still the head coach based on that effort? But a little more goes into it than that." McCown suffered a sprained right (throwing) thumb in Thursday night's blowout loss to Atlanta. The Buccaneers aren't ready to hand the reins to Mike Glennon just yet.

Arian Foster (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Giants.

Foster was limited in practice all week. Although Foster's availability is not known to be in danger against the G-Men, this is a reminder of his durability woes. He leads the NFL in carries through two games. Foster also has a scary injury history when it comes to hamstrings. It's worth noting Alfred Blue ran ahead of Jonathan Grimes in Week 2, and saw 11 carries to Grimes' three.

Keenan Allen (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 3 at Buffalo after practicing on a limited basis Friday.

He was limited in both Thursday and Friday's practices. The fact that Allen did bounce back to get in some reps Friday should bode well, and we'll know his Week 3 availability early on Sunday because the Chargers trek to Buffalo for a 1PM ET game. If Allen does play, he'll be a borderline WR1 in fantasy.

Jamaal Charles (ankle, questionable) was limited in Chiefs practice Friday.

"He did OK," coach Andy Reid said after the workout. "He looked a little sore, but he did OK." Charles is shaping up as a game-time decision in Sunday's afternoon tilt with the Dolphins. Considering the game's late start and Charles' inability to practice fully, he won't be a recommended Week 3 FanDuel option.

A.J. Green (toe) is officially listed as probable for Week 3 against the Titans.

Green was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice after experiencing no setbacks from Thursday's limited session. He's already said that he plans to play Sunday. We conservatively have Green as our No. 10 receiver for Week 3, but he gets a boost with Titans top CB Jason McCourty dinged up.
Sep 19 - 2:06 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) remained sidelined at Jets practice Friday.

Coach Rex Ryan remains confident Decker will be available Monday night against the Bears, and says Decker doesn't have to practice to play. With few pass-game alternates outside of Jeremy Kerley in the Jets-Bears game to hold in case Decker misses, owners with other WR3 options would be wise to plug them in over Decker. It'd be nice to see Decker practice Saturday afternoon.
Sep 19 - 1:55 PM

DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Steelers.

Coach Ron Rivera once again said he expects to have Williams for Sunday Night Football. He has some FLEX appeal in a plus matchup. The concern with Williams is he doesn't score touchdowns. Owners should be aiming higher.
Sep 19 - 1:04 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is probable for Week 3 against the Colts.

Allen Hurns (ankle) is also listed as probable. Both players practiced in full Friday. With Marqise Lee (hamstring) out, look for Shorts and Hurns to open as the starters. Allen Robinson will be serve as the No. 3 receiver. With Chad Henne still under center, it's hard to trust any of these guys as more than WR4/5 plays. For Shorts' sake, hopefully he can avoid setbacks with his balky hamstring.
