Mark Ingram lined up with the second unit throughout the Saints' offseason program.

It's a change from the previous two offseasons, when Ingram received more first-team carries than any other back. During this year's OTAs and minicamp, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles have received the "vast majority" of reps with the first-team offense. Thomas has had his number called on traditional running plays while Sproles does his thing on the outside. All three backs are going to get snaps under the Saints' hot-hand approach, but Ingram is no longer on first-round pick scholarship. He's averaged just 3.87 YPC through two NFL seasons compared to 4.81 for Thomas over the same span.

Packers OC Tom Clements brushed off a suggestion that the Packers are feeding Jordy Nelson too much.

Sep 18 - 8:15 AM

Coach Mike McCarthy said WR Davante Adams has "earned opportunities" and produced.

McCarthy declined to name Adams his new starter opposite Jordy Nelson, but it appears we're eventually heading in that direction. After a Jarrett Boykin red-zone drop in Week 2, Adams came on and shined with a 5-50-0 line on seven targets and 37 snaps. As the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says, Boykin is "steady" but Adams can "stress a defense." The second-round rookie is the one to stash as the potential home run if he can fully pass Boykin. As for this week's potential shootout with the Lions, expect a rotation.

Lamar Miller (ankle) is absent from the Week 3 injury report.

Miller tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss, but it wasn't serious enough to limit his reps this week. Taking over as the No. 1 back in the absence of Knowshon Moreno (elbow), Miller has RB2 appeal in the Dolphins' newly run-heavy offense.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson says he "doesn't have a number" in terms of how many carries he'll distribute to Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard on a game-by-game basis.

This Bengals' backfield is trending toward a full-blown RBBC. "It’s how the game is flowing and how the guys are flowing in the game," said Jackson, who admitted he was mistaken to give Hill only four carries in Week 1. Hill handled 17 touches in Week 2, totaling 96 yards and a touchdown. "Last week I think I improved in that area, making sure (Hill) was out there and he made some plays," said Jackson. "... That’s why we drafted him ... whatever their name is, whatever it is they want to (call) themselves after, they’re just a tandem." Jackson did make it clear Bernard "is the starting tailback on this football team ... until he proves that he can’t or the other guy proves that he’s better."

According to ESPN New York, Eric Decker (hamstring) remains "on pace" to play in Monday night's game against the Bears despite missing Wednesday's practice.

Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he's "confident" Decker "will be ready ... but I should say I guess I’m hopeful that (Decker) will play." Decker may get in very little practice time ahead of Monday night's game, but the extra day to prepare should help. Although Decker has been a WR2 to this point, he should be treated more along the lines of a WR3 option this week due to the injury.

The Akron Beacon Journal suggests Jordan Cameron (shoulder) "probably has a good shot at playing" in Week 3 against Baltimore.

Cameron returned to a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out all of last week. "[My shoulder] feels good," Cameron said after the practice. "It feels better. ... I’m going to wake up in the morning, and we’ll take it from there." Cameron aggravated an August shoulder injury on a 47-yard reception in the Browns' opener. Cameron finished 2013 with 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns, going to the Pro Bowl as a 25-year-old first-year starter. When healthy, he is an elite fantasy tight end.

Cardinals deactivated RB Jonathan Dwyer for Week 3.

Dwyer was arrested on charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault for two incidents in July. Stepfan Taylor will take over as the Cardinals' No. 2 back.
Sep 17 - 7:49 PM

Vernon Davis (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Davis remains on crutches, and appears to be highly questionable for Week 3 against the Cardinals. He didn't suffer any structural damage last Sunday night, but Davis is dealing with a deep bruise. Fantasy owners need to be making other arrangements. Jared Cook, Travis Kelce, and Niles Paul are all options.
Sep 17 - 5:33 PM

The St. Louis Post Dispatch's Jim Thomas reports Austin Davis got the "lion's share" of the Rams' first-team quarterback reps at Wednesday's practice.

Shaun Hill (thigh) participated in individual drills and remains day-to-day. Case Keenum received a couple of reps with the starters in 11-on-11 drills. But Austin Davis is the clear favorite to start against the Cowboys after leading the Rams to a 19-17 win over the Bucs last Sunday. The Rams will pound the ball on the ground and let Davis "manage" the game with short passes. He's a low-end QB2/3.
Sep 17 - 4:29 PM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure says there's "no doubt" Roddy White (hamstring, questionable) will play Thursday night against the Bucs.

McClure has been on top of the Roddy White news all week. Although the 32-year-old hasn't practiced at all, there are no concerns about his availability for Week 3. White is a rock-solid WR2 even against Bucs LCB Alterraun Verner.
Sep 17 - 3:59 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

That's the good news for the Jaguars. The bad news is that Marqise Lee was forced to leave practice early after re-tweaking his hamstring injury from last week. Both should be considered highly questionable for Week 3 against the Colts. UDFA Allen Hurns (ankle) missed practice altogether on Wednesday. If none of the three can play, Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would be the starters.
