Raiders signed third-round OLB Sio Moore to a four-year contract.

Moore, the No. 66 overall pick, has been the talk of Raiders OTAs and minicamp. He can play all three linebacker spots, but Moore has been lining up at both the weak-side and strong-side positions. He'll be a Week 1 starter as a rookie.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Coach Chip Kelly said he remains "real confident" in Blaine Gabbert as the starter.

Gabbert is completing just 55.2 percent of his passes at 5.5 yards per attempt with a 3:3 TD:INT ratio. He simply isn't getting it done, as the 49ers have been rocked in two-straight games. Kelly said Colin Kaepernick will continue to be the No. 2 until he gets his body (gains weight) back to its 2013 form.

Doug Martin (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

Martin is fully expected to miss another 1-2 weeks. Charles Sims will continue to carry the bulk of the load and be backed up by Jacquizz Rodgers.

Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) both practiced on Wednesday.

Garoppolo reportedly is "still in pain and doesn't yet have full mobility" in his throwing shoulder, but he didn't look any worse for the wear while throwing at Wednesday's practice. He and Brissett split the first-team reps. Don't expect gamesman coach Bill Belichick to name a starter until the end of the week.
Sep 28 - 1:26 PM

DeSean Jackson (ankle) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Jackson went into Week 3 with an ankle ailment, but he played through it and ran right by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a 44-yard touchdown. He appeared to re-tweak the ankle but quickly returned. At this point, we'd expect Jackson to play Sunday against the Browns. Check back Thursday.
