Bears agreed to terms with DT Sedrick Ellis, formerly of the Saints, on a one-year contract.

Ellis will provide depth along the Bears' deep defensive line. The 2008 first-round bust has just 0.5 sacks over the past two seasons despite 31 starts. That horrendous number would be a bit easier to swallow had Ellis stood out as a run defender, but he hasn't. Going on 28, Ellis won't be guaranteed a roster spot, but has the inside track. Perhaps he'll be more effective in a reserve role, but we doubt it.

Suspended WR Josh Gordon has decided to enter an in-person rehab facility, and will not return to the Browns when first eligible in week 5.

Michael Floyd (concussion) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday, getting in a "full" session.

Floyd was looking dicey for Sunday's game against the Rams after he reported a concussion on Monday, but he's suddenly on track to start. Off to a slow start as Larry Fitzgerald dominates targets, Floyd will be a low-end WR3 against the Rams. His quick recovery knocks John Brown from the WR3 fringes.

Dez Bryant (knee) says he got "great feedback" on his knee injury from Dr. James Andrews.

Dr. Andrews is someone players never want to visit, but the best possible person to get good news from. Bryant is still expected to miss Sunday's game against the 49ers, but perhaps he'll be ready to roll for Week 5.

Jarvis Landry (shoulder) and DeVante Parker (hamstring) will both be active for Thursday Night Football.

There was never any concern about either player's status. Landry is on the WR1 borderline against a defense that just got eaten up by Emmanuel Sanders, while Parker has WR3 appeal. The Bengals have allowed the third most passing touchdowns (nine) in football.
Sep 29 - 5:21 PM

Willie Snead (toe) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Snead is on track to return against the Chargers, but it isn't a slam dunk. Unfortunately, the game is at 4:25ET, and the Saints are one of the league's least-honest teams with injury information. Owners can pencil Snead in, but still need to have a back-up plan ready.

Marvin Jones (hamstring) was added to the Lions' Thursday injury report, getting in a limited session with a hamstring issue.

Jones must have tweaked something in Thursday's practice. There's currently no reason to panic, but Jones' Friday status will be key. Jones has a history of (minor) hamstring issues. Sit tight, but at least start contemplating a back-up plan.
Sep 29 - 4:34 PM

Patriots QBs Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) remained "limited" on Thursday.

It's still unclear who will be starting against the Bills. CSN New England reported Wednesday morning that Garoppolo still doesn't have "fully mobility in his throwing shoulder." Brissett seems further along in his recovery. It should be considered far from a certainly Garoppolo suits up. Another Brissett start would downgrade the Patriots' skill players across the board, save LeGarrette Blount.
Sep 29 - 3:45 PM

Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) has "no doubt" he'll start Sunday's game against the Jets.

"I'll be ready to go," Wilson said. It's just the latest declaration he'll be starting despite getting his knee twisted up in extremely awkward fashion last Sunday. Wilson has a juicy matchup with a Jets pass defense allowing a league-worst 9.7 yards per attempt, but still gets docked a few spots in the ranking for his ill health. The Seahawks are on bye in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 3:36 PM

Alshon Jeffery remained limited in Thursday's practice, getting listed with a hamstring issue in addition to his knee ailment.

Jeffery seems to get hurt every other practice. The fact that he was still "limited" — as opposed to DNP — is good news, but we suppose his Week 4 status is back in question. A "limited" session Friday would have Jeffery on track to play against the Lions.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) could miss up to four weeks.

Including this week's absence, Stewart has now missed 25 games since the start of 2012. Stewart is an effective workhorse when healthy but that's rarely been the case. Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker saw similar workloads last week with Artis-Payne going for 58 yards on 13 touches while Whittaker tallied 56 yards on 10 touches. Until a frontrunner emerges from the Carolina backfield, it's hard to endorse either of them as anything more than flex plays.

Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) is out for Week 4 against the Falcons.

He hasn't practiced since tweaking his hamstring in Week 2. Consider him week to week. Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker will continue to share backfield work in Stewart's absence. Both are low-end flex options against Atlanta.
