The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports West Virginia WR Tavon Austin scored a seven on his Wonderlic Test at the Combine.

The Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn has exclusive access to Wonderlic scores each year, and he reveals them for some top wide receivers at the linked article below. Tennessee's Cordarrelle Patterson registered an 11 out of 50. College teammate Justin Hunter scored a 12. Keenan Allen (19) and Robert Woods (23) were much better. Ultimately, Wonderlic scores have zero correlation to NFL success. Troy Williamson scored a 21, while A.J. Green scored a 10. Redskins busts Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly both scored in the 20s.

Michael Floyd (concussion) has been cleared for football activity.

Floyd practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday. He's still in the concussion protocol, but will be reevaluated on Thursday. The Cardinals are "optimistic" on Floyd's Week 4 status.

T.Y. Hilton (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Hilton went berserk in last week's win over the Chargers (eight catches, 174 yards, one touchdown) so we're not worried about his status for Week 4. In all likelihood, this was just a maintenance day. With Donte Moncrief (shoulder) still sidelined, Hilton will continue to be a target monster Sunday against Jacksonville. He'll be a borderline WR1 in that matchup.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects Delanie Walker (hamstring) to play Sunday.

Walker was close to playing against the Raiders, but didn't show enough in pre-game warmups. He should miss only one game. Walker's return is a needed upgrade to a Tennessee offense that was held to one touchdown last week.
Sep 28 - 4:44 PM

Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Coleman limped off at one point during Monday's blowout win over the Saints but the injury obviously didn't affect him as he finished the night with a career-high three touchdowns. He'll be fine for Week 4 against Carolina.
Sep 28 - 4:34 PM

Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

Gates reportedly wasn't even close to playing Week 3 at the Colts. His body appears to just be breaking down at 36 years old. Rookie Hunter Henry will make another start in what looks to be another plus matchup.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Gates looking like he'll miss another week, Hunter Henry (who is minimum priced on most DFS outlets) will step into the lead role against a defense that ranked dead last against the TE position last season. Henry was the 35th pick in this year's draft and after catching each of his five targets last weekend, he could very well be in for another 2-3 looks against a vulnerable Saints defense. New Orleans allowed more FPPG to TEs last year than the leader at the position (Rob Gronkowski) averaged on the season.

Coach Pete Carroll said he "would be surprised" if Russell Wilson (knee) doesn't play Week 4 against the Jets.

Wilson is "pretty determined" to play through the sprained MCL and has been waking up in the middle of the night for treatment this week. A live-in specialist has been staying at his home. He'll be a low-end QB1 at less than 100 percent, on the road for a 1 PM ET start, and against a tough front four.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Jets are very stout against the run - they allowed the 3rd fewest FPPG to RBs last year and have allowed the third-fewest YPG to opposing backfields this year - yet aren't quite as strong against the pass. Wilson would be an elite GPP play if he was fully healthy, and while most of the field won't want to take the risk, Wilson is still a fine GPP target in large-field tournaments.This is a situation to avoid in cash games.

Coach Todd Bowles said Eric Decker aggravated his shoulder injury in the Week 3 loss to the Chiefs, and it's "worse" than it was before the game.

Decker didn't practice Wednesday and needs an MRI. This doesn't sound good for his chances of playing Sunday against the Seahawks. If Decker can't go, Quincy Enunwa will be the No. 2 behind Brandon Marshall.
Sep 28 - 3:26 PM

Coach Jay Gruden said he's "very concerned" about Josh Doctson (Achilles').

Doctson has taken a step back after getting in limited practices all last week. He ended up not feeling right in pregame wramups before the Giants game and was inactive. Gruden said Doctson will "take it easy" again this week. Though tests have shown no further damage, Doctson is week to week. He's looking like a long shot to make any meaningful year-one contributions.

Coach Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant has a hairline fracture in his knee, but the Cowboys are hopeful he'll be able to play Week 4 at the 49ers.

Garrett called it a "day by day, week by week" thing, so who knows what that means. If we were to simply make an educated guess, we'd say Bryant doesn't play Sunday. Hairline fractures in the fibula, which is at the base of the leg rather than the knee, often require multiple weeks of recovery. Bryant didn't practice Wednesday and will likely be a game-time decision Sunday.
Sep 28 - 2:41 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Kenneth Dixon (knee) is targeting a Week 5 return.

RapSheet riled up the masses with a tweet earlier Wednesday morning that Dixon was returning to practice Wednesday, but he didn't do much of anything besides working out by himself on a side field. Dixon is still recovering from a sprained MCL. Coach John Harbaugh expressed frustration with the running game Wednesday, so Dixon could be given a decent workload as soon as he hits the field. He's worth picking up as a bench-stash flier if you have roster room.
Sep 28 - 2:36 PM

Julius Thomas (elbow) is not practicing Wednesday.

It's a new injury for Thomas. He played his normal snap count last week against the Ravens, so it could just be a minor thing. For now, we'd expect him to play Sunday against the Colts in London where he'd be a TE1.
