Pierre Garcon (foot) is "leaning" toward rest over surgery.

The report comes via a "person with knowledge of (Garcon's) health." Garcon will reportedly make a final decision in the "coming weeks." Surgery would sideline Garcon for 3-4 months, and reportedly "offer no guarantee of fixing the issue." Garcon tore ligaments in his right foot in Week 1, and was limited to 10 games his first season in Washington. Even if Garcon decides against surgery now, there's no guarantee he won't have to go under the knife somewhere down the road. It's a situation to monitor in Dynasty leagues.

Shane Vereen is expected to start with Rashad Jennings (thumb) sidelined for Week 3 against the Redskins.

Vereen has rarely been used in a feature role throughout his career, mostly settling for passing-down work and change-of-pace duties. However, Vereen is one of only three Giants backs to receive carries this year (the others are Jennings and Orleans Darkwa) and should be close to an every-down player on Sunday. Vereen turned 17 touches into 66 yards with Jennings banged up last week and will be a strong RB2 play in PPR formats against Washington.

The Bills will be without No. 2 CB Ronald Darby (hamstring) Sunday versus Arizona.

Darby is one of the best young corners in the league. His absence will force the Bills to lean more heavily on slot CB Nickell Robey-Coleman and sixth-round rookie Kevon Seymour opposite Stephon Gilmore. It's a huge concern versus Carson Palmer. Darby couldn't get his hamstring right with a ten-day layoff, suggesting the injury may cost him more than one game.

Delanie Walker (hamstring, questionable) will warm up early to see if he can play against the Raiders in Week 3.

He's a true game-time decision. Walker missed two of the Titans' three practices this week including Friday's session. Even if Walker gets the green light, he might not play a full complement of snaps. Fifth-round rookie Tajae Sharpe would be in for an increased workload if Walker sits.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Josh McCown's (shoulder) timeline for return is 2-4 weeks.

Rather than a broken collarbone as previously reported, RapSheet calls the injury a "painful strain and hairline crack" in McCown's non-throwing shoulder. It sounds like McCown could return sooner than expected, which would be great news for suspended WR Josh Gordon's outlook. The Browns will likely struggle to generate much offense with third-rounder Cody Kessler running the show.

Jaguars C Brandon Linder (knee) is not expected to play in Week 3.

He got hurt on Wednesday. The Jaguars will also be without LT Kelvin Beachum (concussion). Jacksonville's offensive line completely failed to open run-game holes in the first two weeks when their line was at full strength, so we wouldn't expect any improvement from the decimated group Sunday against the Ravens.
Sep 25 - 8:20 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Rashad Jennings (thumb) is expected to miss Sunday's Week 3 game against the Redskins.

It's a stunner as Jennings attended practice throughout the week and never looked to be in serious danger of missing Week 3. His thumb injury is obviously more severe than the Giants were letting on. He's week to week. It's unclear how the backfield will shape up in his absence, though Shane Vereen logged 17 touches with Jennings ailing against the Saints in Week 2. Vereen is suddenly a strong RB2 play in PPR leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Dolphins are "treating Kenyan Drake as the starter today" in the absence of Arian Foster (groin).

RapSheet does acknowledge the Dolphins will "mix in other runners" against the Browns. Jay Ajayi is understandably in coach Adam Gase's doghouse due to his total ineffectiveness and last week's lost fumble against the Patriots. The Dolphins used a third-round pick on Drake and want him to succeed. RapSheet reports Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead "missed a meeting" prior to the Dolphins-Pats game, which is why they were both inactive. We'd expect at least one of Williams and Pead to play against the Browns. Even against the Browns, Drake is a low-floor flex option in season-long leagues.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brandon Marshall (knee/foot) is expected to play at Kansas City, but he will be on a snap count.

Schefter also tweeted something about the weather in Kansas City being "bad," although Weather.com has Arrowhead experiencing a 0-15 percent chance of rain with mild winds (8-10 MPH) and temperatures in the 70s during Sunday's game. We're not concerned about the weather at all. The snap-count concern should downgrade Marshall from a WR1 to a WR2/3, but snap counts do have a tendency to be thrown to the wind if a player starts hot. Schefter reported Marshall's knee "felt much better" on Saturday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Alshon Jeffery (knee) is expected to play Sunday night at Dallas.

Fantasy owners got a mild scare when Jeffery was held out of Thursday's practice, but he returned to a limited session Friday and should be loaded into fantasy lineups. Jeffery's outlook is barely hindered by the Bears' "loss" of Jay Cutler, who was playing poorly. Brian Hoyer can do just as well as Cutler did.
Sep 25 - 7:53 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Sammy Watkins (foot) will not play Sunday against the Cardinals.

Watkins tweeted something Saturday night suggesting he was planning on playing, but it sounds like he failed to receive medical clearance. Schefter reports the Bills will turn to one-trick speedster Marquise Goodwin opposite Robert Woods. Losing Watkins is a huge downgrade to Tyrod Taylor's outlook in an already-tough matchup. Watkins can only be considered week to week. Battling a recurring foot injury, he'll likely be week to week for the rest of the year.

ESPN New York expects Brandon Marshall (questionable, knee/foot) to play Sunday.

Marshall only got in one limited practice, but the missed reps aren't a huge concern to his Week 3 status. Marshall clearly isn't fully healthy despite playing through his knee injury last week and remains a game-time decision. He's trending toward being active.
