The Charlotte Observer expects the Panthers to release LCB Chris Gamble.

It's the consensus among the local media, and a near formality thanks to the Panthers' disastrous cap situation. Gamble is still an adequate cover corner, but missed 12 games with injury in 2012, and will be on the wrong side of 30 next month. Even if the Panthers weren't facing a cap crunch, Gamble's $7.9 million salary would be prohibitive.

LeSean McCoy has been cleared to return to Sunday's game against the Redskins.

It's a pleasant surprise after McCoy appeared very dazed due to a helmet-to-helmet hit from Redskins CB David Amerson. McCoy had two carries for 10 yards and no catches when he went to the locker room.

Matt Cassel was forced from Minneosta's Week 3 game against the Saints with a left toe injury, and is questionable to return.

First-round rookie Teddy Bridgewater is now in the game at quarterback. Cassel limped off the field after getting dragged down on a second-quarter scramble. He spent some time on the trainer's table before being carted to the locker room. He's undergoing X-rays. Although he had yet to be sacked, Cassel was getting harassed before going down. He completed 5-of-10 passes for 53 yards.

The Texans announced Alfred Blue will be their starting tailback Sunday at the Giants.

The sixth-round rookie out of LSU passed Jonathan Grimes on the depth chart and had 11 carries off the bench last week. The Texans are a run-heavy team, which works in Blue's Week 3 fantasy favor, but Texans beat writers expect an "RBBC" against the Giants, and New York has played solid run defense thus far. Blue is a high-risk flex play. Grimes and Ronnie Brown are also in the mix.

FOX's Jay Glazer confirms that Jamaal Charles (ankle) is not expected to play in Sunday's late game against the Dolphins.

Charles clearly doesn't have a true high-ankle sprain, but he remains sore. Glazer said Andy Reid will likely err on the side of caution. "Unless something happens later today to convince Reid that Charles is 100 percent, Charles will be down today," said Glazer. Knile Davis can be penciled into lineups as a volume back against a very good Dolphins run defense.

Aaron Dobson is a healthy scratch for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Raiders.

It's one of Bill Belichick's surprises as Dobson was thought to be ascending toward the every-down "X" role. Instead, ineffective Kenbrell Thompkins and Brandon LaFell are active. Dobson is now a drop candidate in 10- and 12-team leagues. Meanwhile, Julian Edelman (back), Shane Vereen (shoulder), and Rob Gronkowski (knee) are active for the Patriots, as expected. James White is a healthy scratch.

Allen Robinson is listed as a starter opposite Cecil Shorts in Sunday's Week 3 game against the Colts.

Allen Hurns (ankle) is active, but it sounds like he'll serve as the No. 3 receiver. It's a monster opportunity for the talented Robinson, although he's going to see a lot of shutdown CB Vontae Davis. Marqise Lee (hamstring) is inactive, along with TE Clay Harbor, OL Austin Pasztor, CB Jeremy Harris, G Tyler Shatley, RB Storm Johnson and WR Tavvares King.
Sep 21 - 11:48 AM

Keenan Allen (groin) is active for the Chargers' Week 3 matchup with the Bills.

Allen was questionable after being limited on Thursday and Friday. Now active, Allen is a borderline WR1 against the Bills' shaky secondary.
Sep 21 - 11:42 AM

A.J. Green (toe) is active and will start against the Titans.

As expected. Green was bothered by his toe last week, but got in a good week of practice and experienced no setbacks into the weekend. We conservatively have Green as a mid-range WR1. Inactive for the Bengals are WLB Vontaze Burfict (concussion), RB Rex Burkhead, CB Chris Lewis-Harris, LB Sean Porter, OG Kevin Zeitler, WR Marvin Jones, and DT Brandon Thompson.
Sep 21 - 11:37 AM

Bernard Pierce (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 game at Cleveland.

Already a shaky bet due to ineffectiveness, Pierce now add durability questions to his resume. Scatback Justin Forsett will start, but we'd expect Lorenzo Taliaferro to mix in for 7-12 touches as a change-of-pace back. Both of them need to be owned. In good news for the Ravens, CB Ladarius Webb (back) will make his season debut. The rest of their inactives: WR Michael Campanaro, OLs Jah Reid and John Urschel, DT Timmy Jernigan, LB Arthur Brown and S Terrence Brooks.
Sep 21 - 11:34 AM

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active for Sunday's Week 3 game at Philadelphia.

Fighting a sprain in his left shoulder, Jackson will be at less than 100 percent when he reaches over his head for passes. But he wasn't going to miss a revenge spot against the team that cut him, and will be a boom-or-bust kind of WR3 against the Eagles' leaky secondary. Also note that Jordan Reed (hamstring) was ruled out earlier in the week, leaving Niles Paul as a TE1 option again. The rest of the Redskins inactives: OL Morgan Moses, WR Santana Moss, QB Robert Griffin III, CB Tracy Porter, LB Akeem Jordan and DL Kedric Golston.
Sep 21 - 11:32 AM

Arian Foster (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 3 against the Giants.

Foster's league-high 55 carries have already caught up to him. He entered the season as one of the most high-risk players. Look for the Texans to turn to a committee approach against the Giants, with Alfred Blue the most likely for fantasy production as a FLEX option. Jonathan Grimes and Ronnie Brown will also play. Working in their favor is that the Giants are missing MLB Jon Beason.
