ESPN New York reports there is a "small segment" of the Jets' organization that would prefer to trade Antonio Cromartie over Darrelle Revis.

Cromartie is coming off a career-best year where he was asked to cover the offense's No. 1 receiver in Revis' absence. He also has two years left on his deal, and his trade value has never been higher. Due $9.5 million in 2013, the Jets would only take a cap hit of $2.5 million by trading Cromartie, instead of the $12 million hit they'd endure for dealing Revis. Cromartie is due a $2.3 million roster bonus on March 14, so a deal would have to be struck before then. Rex Ryan is believed to be of the contingent that supports trading Cromartie instead of Revis.

Doug Martin (knee) is inactive for Week 3 against the Falcons.

The Bucs had been hinting all week that Martin would suit up, but that changed Thursday afternoon. His absence leaves Bobby Rainey as a high-upside RB2 against a Falcons run defense that's gotten smoked by the run the past two weeks. Rainey will be spelled by Mike James. Martin is week to week, with a strong chance at returning in Week 4. It could be as a backup if Rainey has another big game, however. Also inactive for the Bucs are DT Gerald McCoy, TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, LB Mason Foster, OT Kevin Pamphile, OG Kadeem Edwards and OG Rishaw Johnson.

Roddy White (hamstring) is inactive for Week 3 against the Bucs.

The Falcons had intimated all week that White would suit up, but that changed on Thursday afternoon. White should return for Week 4, but the former iron man has now missed four of the Falcons' past 19 games, and played at less than 100 percent in many more. His absence leaves Julio Jones as a target monster, and Harry Douglas as a legitimate WR3. Devin Hester will run deep routes as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver.

Vikings released WR Jerome Simpson.

Simpson's three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy was set to end on Monday, but it was revealed Thursday that he was busted on marijuana and alcohol charges in July. Simply stunning immaturity from a 28-year-old receiver who's dealt with various legal issues throughout his NFL career. Simpson is a competent deep threat, but has had trouble staying on the field thanks to his bans. Considering the current climate for NFL troublemakers, he's unlikely to find a new home any time soon.

Cordarrelle Patterson was added to the Vikings' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a chest issue.

Patterson joins Keenan Allen and Bernard Pierce as surprise Thursday additions to the injury report. "Chest" is a rather vague designation, but it's hard to believe it's something that will keep Patterson out for Week 3. Owners must now monitor his status ahead of Sunday's trip to New Orleans, but we're leaving Patterson penciled in as a WR2.

Jamaal Charles (ankle) was officially limited in Thursday's return to practice.

It's quite possible the Chiefs are just trying to confuse the situation for the Dolphins, but reporters present for practice noted that Charles was moving well, and even cutting in position drills. What's clear is that Charles does not have a traditional high-ankle sprain, if he has one at all. For now, he should be considered slightly less than 50-50 to play. Even if Charles did suit up against Miami, it's quite possible he'd be on a snap count. His status should be updated multiple times over the next 24 hours.

CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms there's a "good chance" Doug Martin (knee) is inactive Thursday against the Falcons.

Per La Canfora, even if Martin does dress, there's "not much expectation of him being involved." It's going to be the Bobby Rainey show against a run defense that's allowed 309 yards through its first two games. Rainey can be used as a plug-and-play RB2.
Sep 18 - 4:36 PM

Vernon Davis (ankle) shed his crutches on Thursday, but was still "hobbling around" the 49ers locker room.

He missed practice for the second straight day. Although it's a good sign that Davis has shed his crutches, it's hard to see him suiting up for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. With Vance McDonald (knee) also hobbled, third-year UDFA Derek Carrier is in line to start.
Sep 18 - 4:27 PM

Keenan Allen was added to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a groin issue.

It's a new injury for Allen, who must have suffered it in Thursday's practice. The Chargers' press corps doesn't seem alarmed, but Allen's status will obviously be worth double-checking on Friday. We're still leaving him penciled in as a borderline WR1 for Week 3.
Sep 18 - 4:14 PM

Bernard Pierce was added to the Ravens' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a thigh issue.

Mid-week additions to the injury report are never good news, but we haven't come across any real reason to be concerned about Pierce's Week 3 status. We still expect him to lead the Ravens' committee against the Browns, with Justin Forsett mixing in frequently as a change-of-pace back. Pierce is a borderline RB2.
Sep 18 - 4:07 PM

Toby Gerhart (ankle) returned to Jaguars practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Wednesday was just a day of rest for the Jags' lead back, who is fully expected to suit up against the Colts' leaky run defense. Although we like the matchup, it's hard to trust Gerhart as an RB2 since he's managed just 50 yards on his first 25 carries behind the Jags' porous offensive line.
Sep 18 - 3:48 PM

Jordan Cameron (shoulder) was "very limited" in Thursday's practice, and could go "either way" for Week 3.

The word comes from OC Kyle Shanahan. Public pessimism from the coaching staff is never a good sign. Cameron should be considered no better than 50-50 to suit up against the Ravens. If he does play, he'll be a mid-range TE1 at risk of re-injury.
