Free agent Johnny Knox has decided to retire from football, telling the Chicago Sun-Times he's "moving on and going forward."

It's a sad end to a once promising career. According to the Sun-Times, Knox is still walking with a limp 14 months after his spinal fusion operation, and "struggles to sit or stand" comfortably. "I was centimeters away from being paralyzed, so just sitting here and talking, I’m appreciative of that," Knox said Wednesday. "Just the hard work that I had to put in. Just to be able to stay in and do everything in my daily life that I used to do." Only 26 years old, the former fifth-round pick ends his career with 133 catches for 2,214 yards and 12 touchdowns over 45 games.

49ers placed OLB Tank Carradine on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.

Carradine went down in last Thursday's loss to the Rams. He can resume practicing in six weeks and return to game action in eight. Elvis Dumervil is ticketed for the biggest uptick in snaps in Carradine's absence.

Julio Jones is dealing with a lower-back injury, and will be limited in practice this week.

Jones picked up the injury at some point in Sunday's narrow win over the Lions. Coach Dan Quinn didn't seem concerned about Jones' Week 4 status, but it's obviously something to monitory. Jones could be "DNP" on Wednesday.

Jordan Howard (shoulder) is absent from the Bears' Week 4 injury report.

It's a major surprise given the way Howard was favoring his shoulder on Sunday. Either way, Howard produced like he was at full health against the Steelers, and will be needed for a major workload in Thursday's game against the Packers. There's still volatility here — the Bears' offense is a weekly threat to go off the rails, and Tarik Cohen should remain the preferred passing-down back — but Howard has re-established himself in the top 20.

Giants RE Olivier Vernon is dealing with an ankle injury.

"It’s still early in the week," coach Ben McAdoo said Monday. "We have to see how he responds to treatment." Vernon missed 17 snaps against the Eagles. Vernon hasn't become a transcendent superstar since signing his five-year, $85 million contract, but has certainly been a major asset for the G-Men. He would be a big loss for Week 4 against the Bucs.

Samaje Perine has been diagnosed with a bruised hand, and is day to day.

Perine's injury looked fairly ugly, so it's great news. As was the case in Week 2, Perine was struggling to generate yards before going down. If Rob Kelley (ribs) is healthy for Week 4, Perine will return to a reserve role.

An MRI revealed no structural damage to Kelvin Benjamin's left knee, but his Week 4 status is unclear.

Coach Ron Rivera didn't have much of an update beyond Benjamin's MRI news. We would consider him genuinely questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. A limited practice on Wednesday would be a great sign.

Bucs WLB Lavonte David has been officially diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

David's initial X-rays were negative, but an MRI revealed the sprain. David was carted off the field against the Vikings. NFL.com reports he is expected to miss "a month or more." David was off to a hot start for a Bucs defense dealing with a number of injuries.
Sep 25 - 1:14 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien hinted Will Fuller (collarbone) may play Week 4 against the Titans.

He was able to practice on a limited basis last week. Asked about Fuller's chances of playing against the Titans, O'Brien said he is "hearing some good things." Once Fuller returns, he will be no better than a WR4 dart throw in a limited passing offense.

Pro Football Talk reports Teddy Bridgewater (knee, PUP) will be healthy enough to play when first eligible to return Week 7 against the Ravens.

PFT reports the Vikings plan to "proceed with caution," suggesting Bridgewater will not be thrown into the fire even if he is healthy enough to play, but that could change if Sam Bradford (knee) continues to miss time. Case Keenum started and played extremely well in the Week 3 win over the Bucs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Doug Baldwin's groin injury is not believed to be "serious."

He will undergo an MRI on Monday to make sure. Baldwin broke out against the Titans before exiting, catching 10 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown. If he is healthy, Baldwin will be a high-end WR2 against the Colts, but his status may come down to the weekend.

Darren Sproles suffered a torn ACL in addition to a broken arm Week 3 against the Giants.

Sproles likely would have returned this season if just for the broken arm, but the ACL tear means his 2017 is finished. With the veteran considering retirement, it is possible this injury also ends his career, which would be a terrible way for one of the league's best playmakers to go out. With Sproles done for the year, LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement should form a timeshare in the backfield. Blount is the best bet for touchdowns from that group, but Smallwood is best suited to take on Sproles' former role. Smallwood needs to be added in all leagues.
