Seahawks placed DL Jason Jones (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Jones battled a sore knee all season, and coach Pete Carroll said it flared up after last week's game. He had four sacks and 10 QB hurries as an effective situational pass rusher in his first and perhaps only season with the Seahawks. He's a free agent in 2013. Undrafted rookie DT Hebron Fangupo was elevated from the practice squad to take Jones' roster spot.

The Panthers expect DeAngelo Williams (thigh) to return for Sunday night's game against the Steelers.

Williams missed last week's win over the Lions after a thigh injury flared up on him. Assuming he gets through practice without a setback, he'll be ready to share the load with Jonathan Stewart in a plus matchup against Pittsburgh. Both backs will be low-upside RB3 types thanks to the cap on touches.

Roddy White (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday.

It's a concern with the Falcons playing on a short week and White's availability remains up in the air for Thursday night's game against the Bucs. His status will be updated again on Wednesday when the Falcons release their official injury report. Owners can protect themselves by adding Harry Douglas, who would play every snap if White sits.

The NFL says the Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy cases are under review.

The Vikings chose to reinstate Peterson Monday, but deferred any questions about further discipline to the league office. The NFL's new hire Lisa Friel, a former New York prosecutor, is examining both cases. No one seems to know if the NFL has the power to step in and suspend Peterson before the case goes to trial, but we do know that FOX's Jay Glazer reported Sunday it falls under the new domestic violence policy. First-time offenders of that policy get a six-game ban. We'd try to hold Matt Asiata until the dust settles here.

Coach Andy Reid confirmed that the game plan won't change much if Knile Davis starts in place of Jamaal Charles (ankle) against the Dolphins Sunday.

Charles has missed all or most of the three games across the last two seasons. In those games, Davis is averaging 22.3 carries, 5.0 catches, 97.0 total yards and has scored six touchdowns. Reid and the Chiefs have every reason to be confident in the second-year back as someone they can build offense through. The RB-dependent scheme Reid has installed would stay intact, leaving Davis as a RB1 candidate.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 70 yards on 13 carries and caught five passes for 26 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's Week 2 loss to the Colts.

Bradshaw outplayed Trent Richardson for the second consecutive game to open the season. Bradshaw took his first carry of the game 29 yards up the left side. It looked like he was shot out of a cannon. Bradshaw legitimately looks like he's been reborn, and he's playing in all red-zone and passing situations, as evidenced by his one-yard and seven-yard scores. He's clearly the superior talent in the Colts' backfield, but we tend to think the Indianapolis coaching staff is too stubborn to realize it. That, or they'll wake up when it's too late.

Darren Sproles rushed for 26 yards and one touchdown on four carries in the Eagles' 30-27, Week 2 win over the Colts on Monday night, adding seven catches for an additional 152 yards.

Sproles was simply unstoppable. He had Eagles beat writers calling it one of the best running back performances they'd seen in team history. Sproles reeled in all seven of his targets, and shook a Colts defender in the open field before pinballing off three others on his way to the end zone on his 19-yard touchdown run. We didn't see this Sproles in New Orleans last season, and Philadelphia snagged him for a fifth-round pick in the offseason. Coach Chip Kelly is an offensive mastermind, but not many saw this type of usage for Sproles. He's a legitimate RB2/FLEX option every week in all formats. Sproles has 263 yards and two touchdowns through his first two games as LeSean McCoy's No. 2.

TMZ reports Adrian Peterson has already been cleared of the latest child abuse accusation involving one of his other sons.

Peterson was accused of hitting one of his other sons, a four-year-old, in the forehead and leaving him with a scar after disciplining him for cursing at a sibling. A source said the case went nowhere because it was determined the boy was injured when he accidentally hit his head on a carseat while Peterson was punishing him. Peterson's form of discipline was "not impermissible." In Texas, parents are allowed to administer "reasonable punishment."

Raiders signed WR Vincent Brown to a one-year contract.

It's a sign the Raiders expect de facto No. 1 receiver Rod Streater (hip flexor) to miss time. A 2011 third-round pick of the Chargers, Brown appeared to have a bright future ahead of him before breaking his ankle in 2012. He wasn't the same in 2013, and couldn't survive final cuts this summer. Brown moved like a tight end last season, which is a problem since he's 5-foot-11, 190 pounds. He's an inoffensive flier for a team as talent-deficient as the Raiders, but he's not going to make an impact on the football field.

Speaking at Monday's presser, Browns coach Mike Pettine said Ben Tate (knee) "probably" won't return for Week 3.

Almost all signs suggest there's no "probably" about it, and that Tate won't suit up against the Ravens. Tate hinted last week that he's targeting a return after the Browns' Week 4 bye. Terrance West filled in ably against the Saints, and will remain in the RB2 conversation for as long as Tate is sidelined.

Coach Lovie Smith suggested Doug Martin (knee) would have participated Monday if the Bucs had held a practice.

As beat writer Rick Stroud notes, it means Martin is "in play" for Thursday night's game at Atlanta. The Falcons have been gashed by the run game through two weeks -- surrendering a league-high five rushing TDs -- but Martin's role isn't entirely clear. Bobby Rainey went off for 22-144 and 3-30 in the pass game during Sunday's loss to St. Louis. This may be an even RBBC with Martin back.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen passed along word on NFL Insiders Monday that there is already talk amongst NFL people that Raiders coach Dennis Allen's job could be in danger.

"I know a lot of people around the league are talking about it," said Mort. Allen is the least of the Raiders' problems, in our opinion, but every loser loves a scapegoat. Once again, the Raiders cobbled together the worst roster in the league, and once again they are atrociously bad. A full-house cleaning is desperately needed in Oakland. It was needed before the 2014 offseason began.
