Rams fired LBs coach/assistant defensive coordinator Blake Williams.

Williams — the suspended Gregg Williams' son — was a key part of the Rams' defensive-coordinator committee this season. He is believed to have called plays, at least early in the year. Yahoo's Mike Silver reports he was let go in part due to a "brusque, tactless style in dealing with colleagues and players." That's not a good look for a 27-year-old non-former player who only got his job because of his daddy. Per FOX's Jay Glazer, Gregg is also likely to be "gone" from St. Louis even if he's reinstated after the Super Bowl. The Rams could be considering naming assistant head coach Dave McGinnis as their defensive coordinator.

According to ESPN New York, Eric Decker (hamstring) remains "on pace" to play in Monday night's game against the Bears despite missing Wednesday's practice.

Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he's "confident" Decker "will be ready ... but I should say I guess I’m hopeful that (Decker) will play." Decker may get in very little practice time ahead of Monday night's game, but the extra day to prepare should help. Although Decker has been a WR2 to this point, he should be treated more along the lines of a WR3 option this week due to the injury.

The Akron Beacon Journal suggests Jordan Cameron (shoulder) "probably has a good shot at playing" in Week 3 against Baltimore.

Cameron returned to a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out all of last week. "[My shoulder] feels good," Cameron said after the practice. "It feels better. ... I’m going to wake up in the morning, and we’ll take it from there." Cameron aggravated an August shoulder injury on a 47-yard reception in the Browns' opener. Cameron finished 2013 with 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns, going to the Pro Bowl as a 25-year-old first-year starter. When healthy, he is an elite fantasy tight end.

Cardinals deactivated RB Jonathan Dwyer for Week 3.

Dwyer was arrested on charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault for two incidents in July. Stepfan Taylor will take over as the Cardinals' No. 2 back.
Sep 17 - 7:49 PM

Vernon Davis (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Davis remains on crutches, and appears to be highly questionable for Week 3 against the Cardinals. He didn't suffer any structural damage last Sunday night, but Davis is dealing with a deep bruise. Fantasy owners need to be making other arrangements. Jared Cook, Travis Kelce, and Niles Paul are all options.
Sep 17 - 5:33 PM

The St. Louis Post Dispatch's Jim Thomas reports Austin Davis got the "lion's share" of the Rams' first-team quarterback reps at Wednesday's practice.

Shaun Hill (thigh) participated in individual drills and remains day-to-day. Case Keenum received a couple of reps with the starters in 11-on-11 drills. But Austin Davis is the clear favorite to start against the Cowboys after leading the Rams to a 19-17 win over the Bucs last Sunday. The Rams will pound the ball on the ground and let Davis "manage" the game with short passes. He's a low-end QB2/3.
Sep 17 - 4:29 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Decker stretched with the team and spent the rest of the practice off to the side doing agility drills and some light running under the supervision of trainers. Decker first injured his hamstring in training camp. The Jets have been quiet on their No. 1 receiver's status. Decker will be updated again on Thursday.
Sep 17 - 4:07 PM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure says there's "no doubt" Roddy White (hamstring, questionable) will play Thursday night against the Bucs.

McClure has been on top of the Roddy White news all week. Although the 32-year-old hasn't practiced at all, there are no concerns about his availability for Week 3. White is a rock-solid WR2 even against Bucs LCB Alterraun Verner.
Sep 17 - 3:59 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

That's the good news for the Jaguars. The bad news is that Marqise Lee was forced to leave practice early after re-tweaking his hamstring injury from last week. Both should be considered highly questionable for Week 3 against the Colts. UDFA Allen Hurns (ankle) missed practice altogether on Wednesday. If none of the three can play, Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would be the starters.
Sep 17 - 3:50 PM

Doug Martin (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Falcons.

Despite the questionable tag, Martin practiced all week and is expected to play. He ran with the first-team offense over Bobby Rainey and appears on track to start. Martin will be an RB2/3 against the Falcons' bottom-ten run defense.
Sep 17 - 2:35 PM

Panthers placed RE Greg Hardy on the NFL's exempt/commissioner's permission list.

As expected. After the Vikings used the exempt list to banish Adrian Peterson while his child-abuse case is resolved, it gave the Panthers an avenue to use on Hardy. The 26-year-old Pro Bowl pass rusher was convicted of domestic assault in July. The Panthers are a little late to the party after Hardy was allowed to play Week 1, but the NFL also has done absolutely nothing to punish Hardy. He'll now stay away from the team for an undetermined amount of time while collecting his $13.116 million guaranteed salary. The Panthers will roll with a combination of Kony Ealy and Mario Addison opposite LE Charles Johnson. No. 3 DE Frank Alexander has two more games left on his four-game suspension.
Sep 17 - 2:24 PM

Jamaal Charles (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

As expected. Charles is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, though it's believed to be of the mild variety. He's unlikely to suit up this week against the Dolphins. Knile Davis will have RB1/2 value as the Chiefs' every-down workhorse.
