ESPN's Adam Schefter says to "forget about the idea" of Michael Vick and OC Marty Mornhinweg reuniting with the Jets.

Immediately after the Jets hired Mornhinweg, speculation began linking Vick to New York. Rex Ryan has always been fond of Vick as well. But the Jets are strapped for cap space, and Vick and Mornhinweg's working relationship soured after two down years in Philadelphia together. Schefter notes that new GM John Idzik was a Tarvaris Jackson supporter in Seattle and suggests the impending free agent as a more likely quarterback solution. If Idzik believes Tarvaris Jackson would be a better option than Michael Vick, the Jets may have initial reason to worry about their rookie GM.

The Vikings announced early Wednesday morning that they're placing Adrian Peterson on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list, requiring the running back to stay away from the team until further notice.

There's no mandatory length of stay on the list, but the Vikings indicated that Peterson would remain there "until the legal proceedings are resolved." Clearly, that suggests it'll be more than a one- or two-week matter. Instead, it now seems Matt Asiata could be the Vikings' starting running back for the long haul, and he should be picked up in all formats.

Giants placed WR Jerrel Jernigan on injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain, ending his season.

WR Julian Talley will take his place on the 53-man roster. It suggests Jernigan is dealing with a dreaded Lisfranc injury, though the Giants say he won't need surgery. Called out by coach Tom Coughlin in training camp, Jernigan had not been an effective as the Giants' fill-in No. 3 receiver this season, catching 6-of-9 targets for 40 yards through 110 snaps. Preseason star Corey Washington should now be in for a bigger role as the Giants await first-rounder Odell Beckham's (hamstring) return. A 2011 third-rounder, Jernigan is in the final year of his rookie contract. He has just 38 career catches.

The Falcons are not concerned about Roddy White's (hamstring) Week 3 status.

White didn't miss a snap in Sunday's loss. "It's not important for Roddy to practice,'' coach Mike Smith said after White sat out Tuesday's session. "We'd like for Roddy to practice, but it's all about getting Roddy ready on a short week." Even if White sits again on Wednesday, you won't have to sweat his status for Thursday's game against the Bucs.

Jaguars placed TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Lewis suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. He'll be first eligible to return in Week 12, as the Jaguars are on bye in Week 11. Lewis is wholly droppable in 14-team leagues. Lewis' backup, Clay Harbor, is still recovering from a long-term calf injury, and is questionable for Week 3. Journeyman Mickey Shuler is the next man up on the depth chart. The Jags have also promoted TE Marcel Jensen from the practice squad.

Doug Martin (knee) participated in Tuesday's practice, and was running with the first-team offense.

It's a sign the Bucs fully expect Martin to go for Thursday night's game against the Falcons. The question is what his role will be. Martin struggled mightily in Week 1, while backup Bobby Rainey went off against the Rams in his absence in Week 2. For now, owners should consider Martin a borderline RB2 against a Falcons run defense that's been gashed through the season's first two games.

Josh Gordon has pled guilty to DWI charges in Wake County, North Carolina, and been sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation.

He must also pay a $390 fine. The league's new drug policy mandates a two-game suspension for players who are convicted or plead out in drunk-driving cases, but Gordon's arrest occurred under the old policy. Per Profootballtalk, he'll only be subject to a fine, and won't have his current 10-game ban lengthened. NFL.com's Albert Breer reports Gordon has been "assured" that's the case. It means he's still on track to return in Week 12, and no longer has any outstanding legal issues. Now hopefully Gordon can stay on the straight and narrow.

Jaguars waived RT Cameron Bradfield.

The Jaguars' fill-in right tackle while Austin Pasztor recovers from hand surgery, Bradfield got positively roasted in Sunday's loss to the Redskins, a game where the Jags surrendered a hard-to-fathom 10 sacks. Bradfield was charged with two of those by Pro Football Focus. Bradfield also struggled in Week 1 against the Eagles. The Jags figure to turn to journeyman Sam Young until Pasztor returns. It's unlikely to be a major upgrade. Bradfield has 27 games of starting experience, but could easily pass through waivers unclaimed.

A source tells CSN Bay Area that Vernon Davis has avoided a significant left ankle injury.

Davis' Monday MRI revealed a deep bruise and no structural damage, meaning he could suit up for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Cardinals. It sounds like a mild, "low" kind of sprain. If Davis does have to sit a game out, the 49ers may have to turn to Derek Carrier at tight end with Vance McDonald (knee) questionable.

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.

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.
