According Redskins team doctor James Andrews, Robert Griffin III underwent a "direct repair" of his torn LCL Wednesday, and a "re-do" of his previous ACL reconstruction.

In other words, Griffin has undergone a reconstruction of his right knee. Andrews declined to offer an exact timetable for Griffin's return, but said "it is everybody's hope and belief that due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for the 2013 season." As Adrian Peterson and others have proven, ACL tears are no longer a particularly imposing injury to come back from, but RGIII's case is made a bit trickier by the fact that this is his second reconstruction. Nevertheless, Griffin is every bit the athlete AD is, and we'd be far from surprised if he's ready for Week 1. His timeline should clarify in the coming weeks.

Odell Beckham's MRI confirmed a sprained ankle.

The Giants haven't revealed all the details surrounding his injury, though it appears Beckham was able to avoid the dreaded high-ankle sprain. "We'll take it day by day and see how they respond to treatment," said coach Ben McAdoo, who was referring to both Beckham and Brandon Marshall (shoulder). Both players were injured in Monday night's preseason game against Cleveland.

Mike Gillislee (hamstring) returned as a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

A hamstring injury has kept Gillislee out for the past two weeks but he's ready to roll and eager to get his reps in with just 16 days until the regular season. There are no assigned roles in New England's crowded backfield, making it a difficult situation to assess for fantasy purposes. With that said, a healthy Gillislee would probably be the favorite for goal-line work in Foxboro, which gives him considerable upside.

Ty Montgomery (leg) returned to practice on Tuesday.

He's back after missing the last week with a lower leg injury and expects to suit up for Saturday's preseason game in Denver. The former wide receiver is locked in as the Packers' lead back.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Giants aren't concerned about Brandon Marshall's shoulder injury.

Rapsheet was told "he'll be fine" while adding that the Giants have "no worries." Marshall bowed out of Monday's preseason game with a shoulder issue but his X-rays came back negative. It looks like the G-Men dodged a couple of major injury bullets with Marshall and Odell Backham both escaping Monday night's game with only minor ailments.

Matt Forte (hamstring) returned to a full practice on Tuesday.

He hadn't practiced since late last month. Forte will obviously be ready for Week 1 and hopes to take part in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants. Stuck in a committee with Bilal Powell and playing for one of the league's worst offenses, the 31-year-old's fantasy arrow is pointing down.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said there's still no "timeline" for Andrew Luck's (shoulder) return.

Per Stephen Holder of the Indy Star, the Colts have just two practices next week and four the week after before heading off to Los Angeles for Week 1 against the Rams. That means that even if Luck is activated off PUP in the next week, he'll have just six practices to shake off the rust before the regular season gets underway. Simply put, Luck is running out of time. Mike Chapell of IndySportsCentral "doubts" Luck will be ready for Week 1 while suggesting Week 3 against Cleveland as a more realistic timeframe. None of this comes as good news for fantasy owners invested in Luck, T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief or Jack Doyle.

Cardinals activated ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) from the active/PUP list.

He's not ready to resume practicing but has been cleared to join the team for walkthroughs. The 2014 first-rounder still aims to be ready for Week 1.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said LeGarrette Blount will be "a big part of our offense."

"The guy's a beast of a runner," the coach added. Despite preseason struggles, reported "weight issues," and rumblings about his roster spot, it looks like the coach plans to enter the season with Blount as his starter and short-yardage back. Perhaps that changes if Wendell Smallwood shows well coming off an injury this week, but Blount remains the best fantasy bet for now.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Tom Savage "is our starter."

"He's had a good camp," O'Brien added. It is not a surprise after Savage looked good in the second preseason game, but Deshaun Watson brings playmaking ability the offense sorely needs. The rookie is going to make starts at some point this season.

ESPN's Mike Reiss does not think the Patriots have a real running back depth chart.

"Any running back could be featured at any given time," Reiss writes, "as it's a deep, talented group." Mike Gillislee was the early fantasy favorite because of his expected role at the goal line, but he has been sidelined the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. Rex Burkhead has been impressive while James White and Dion Lewis will get touches as well.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Cam Newton (shoulder) is on track to play Thursday night against the Jaguars.

Newton has been throwing in team drills this week, and he has apparently looked comfortable enough to send him out for the "dress rehearsal." It would not be surprising if he played fewer snaps than the rest of the starters, however. There was not really any doubt before, but Newton will obviously be ready for Week 1.
