Bills claimed TE Mickey Shuler off waivers from the Raiders.

Shuler was waived by the tight-end poor Raiders on Monday. A 26-year-old blocking specialist, Shuler hasn't appeared in a game since 2010. He's a camp body.

Arian Foster's latest hamstring injury is to the same one that bothered him during the preseason.

Foster missed the first two weeks of camp way back in late-July due to this hamstring. After racking up 55 touches in the first two weeks, he had to sit out the Week 3 loss to the Giants. "As soon as I feel 100 percent, I'll be out there," he said. "It's my hamstring's call." Recurring soft-tissue issues are always scary, even if this latest strain is considered minor. Alfred Blue is shaping up as a must-own for the foreseeable future.

The Ravens are expected to use a committee to replace Dennis Pitta's production in the lineup.

Losing Pitta for the year is a major blow to a Gary Kubiak offense that features the tight end. He had 16 catches on 21 targets through three weeks. "We're going to play our good players," coach John Harbaugh said. "So, who's on the field is going to depend on who are good players are and how the coaches decide to attack." The new starting tight end will be Owen Daniels, but he can't separate at age 31 and is a poor bet to sustain health. Versatile fullback Kyle Juszczyk, who led the Ravens in catches in the preseason, will also get more involved. And Kubiak may be forced to run more three-wide sets that bring Marlon Brown into play. Consider Daniels, whose best trait is knowing the offense like the back of his hand, a low-ceiling add.

Jay Cutler completed 23-of-38 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 3, 27-19 win over the Jets on Monday night.

Cutler and the Bears started off hot, going up 17-3 through 16 minutes of play. But after losing Brandon Marshall to a re-injured ankle, the Jets were able to dial up plenty of blitzes and get to Cutler for four sacks and a number of other hits. Marshall later returned but wasn't near 100 percent and caught just one pass for six yards on the night. Cutler found Martellus Bennett for both touchdowns, and hooked up with Alshon Jeffery eight times for 105 yards. Cutler will be a mid-range QB1 next week when the Bears host the Packers.

Eric Decker exited Monday night's game against the Bears after aggravating his hamstring injury and will not return.

Decker was noticeably still battling the pulled hammy and playing sparingly throughout the first half. He caught his lone target for 19 yards before heading to the sideline. Consider Decker highly questionable for Week 4 vs. the Lions.

Brandon Marshall aggravated his right ankle injury in the second quarter of Monday night's game against the Jets but later returned to start the second half.

Marshall hurt his ankle while blocking. He limped off the field under his own power before making his way to the locker room. Prior to exiting, Marshall had zero catches on three targets. He missed about seven minutes of game time.

Coach Mike McCarthy called out Eddie Lacy at Monday's press conference, and said Lacy "needs to play better."

"I’m not going to do this anymore. I don’t correct individuals in the media. We’ve seen the film, corrections have been made, our running game wasn’t nearly what it needed to be. Not even close," McCarthy said. Lacy has managed just 113 yards and zero touchdowns on 36 carries through three games. He also took a safety and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown on Sunday. To his defense, Lacy has faced the Seahawks, Jets, and Lions through three games. That's tough sledding. He needs to turn it around against the Bears in Week 4.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey's reps won't increase until he improves his footwork.

Sankey dusted off 61 yards on ten carries and was the Titans' most dangerous player in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but Whisenhunt is still obsessed with his footwork. "If he can get the attention to detail better, his reps will increase," stated Whisenhunt. As @StopTheVetoing suggested on Twitter, "Maybe they should have drafted Fred Astaire." The 54th overall pick in May's draft, Sankey has 89 yards on 18 carries (4.94 YPC) through three games. He's rotating with Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster.

Dennis Pitta underwent surgery to repair his dislocated right hip on Monday and is done for the season.

The Ravens will now turn to Owen Daniels as their primary tight end. They also drafted Crockett Gillmore with a top-100 pick in May. Pitta, 29, has now suffered right hip dislocations in back-to-back years. The Ravens signed him to a five-year, $32.5 million contract in February, one GM Ozzie Newsome will likely come to regret. All of Pitta's 2015 base salary ($4 million) is guaranteed. It's unclear whether Pitta intends to continue trying to play.

Coach Mike Pettine was noncommittal Monday when asked if Ben Tate (knee) would return as a starter following the Browns' Week 4 bye.

Pettine said the Browns are "eager" to get back Tate, but the performance of rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell has "made it tougher" to lean on Tate in the manner the team initially planned. They wanted to use Tate as an every-down back. Tate remains likely to retake the Browns' lead back role when healthy and should be owned in all leagues. West and Crowell's fantasy stock will both be very much touch and go when Tate returns.

Danny Woodhead needs surgery on his fractured fibula and ankle and will be lost for the rest of the season.

With Ryan Mathews (knee) out 3-4 more weeks, the Bolts will keep Donald Brown in a workhorse role. They could turn to UDFA Branden Oliver as Woodhead's passing-back replacement, and perhaps promote Marion Grice from the practice squad. Woodhead's loss is a blow to San Diego's passing game, but Oliver showed some Sprolesian flashes in the preseason. Woodhead will turn 30 next January. The Chargers signed him to a new three-year deal late this summer.

Jake Locker suffered an injury to his right (throwing) wrist in Week 3, and the Titans are unsure of his status for Week 4 against the Colts.

Locker's wrist apparently got bent awkwardly in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Per coach Ken Whisenhunt, Locker could barely grip a football after the game. The Titans could conceivably use the injury as an excuse to get another QB under center. Charlie Whitehurst and rookie Zach Mettenberger are next on the depth chart. Locker has been abominable over Tennessee's last two games, combining for a 1:4 TD-to-INT ratio with two fumbles in back-to-back losses.
