Saints signed WR Steve Breaston to a one-year contract.

Breaston, 30, appeared in just 10 games with Kansas City last year, making four starts and catching seven balls for 74 yards. Coach Sean Payton's Saints offense has often featured two situational streak-route runners when it's been at its best, a la Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson. They draw over-the-top coverage and free up the underneath. The Saints have Joseph Morgan, but lack an established second. Breaston will battle Kenny Stills and Saalim Hakim.

Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited at Thursday's practice.

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan said earlier today that he expects Jennings to miss Monday night's game against the Vikings. Jennings' thumb injury affects his ability to block and catch passes, which is obviously a huge hindrance. With Shane Vereen (triceps) also out, it looks like Orleans Darkwa will lead the Giants' backfield in Week 4.

Julius Thomas (elbow) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday morning's game against the Colts.

Thomas missed another practice Thursday, and is looking mighty shaky for Jacksonville/Indy's "Breakfast at Wimbledon" 9:30 AM ET tilt. We'll know early if Thomas is playing, but fantasy owners need a back-up plan. Injuries are always the risk with Thomas, who is a touchdown-scoring force when healthy.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the odds are "slim" J.J. Watt (back) returns this season, but that there are "no long-term concerns."

There were also no long-term concerns last spring. The reality is, Watt has a bad back, and it will be a concern until proven otherwise. The good news is, he has almost an entire year to get right. Watt turns 28 next March. He should bounce back in 2017.

Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) both were at practice Thursday.

Both were limited on Wednesday. It was just a walkthrough, but it is looking more and more likely Garoppolo will play Sunday. He will be a solid streaming option at home against the Bills.

Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter said Golden Tate will see more targets moving forward.

Targets are not really the problem for Tate, who is on pace for 117 through three games. The problem is he is averaging just 7.2 yards per reception a season after gaining just nine yards per catch. Tate has the after-catch skills to break a couple big plays, but his usage limits his yardage upside. Marvin Jones will remain the clear No. 1 in Detroit.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant (knee) will not practice Thursday.

It is not surprising. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has said Bryant is a "long-shot" to play against the 49ers, and he could be looking at a multi-week absence. Cole Beasley and Brice Butler are interesting names in deep leagues.

Sammy Watkins (foot) is not practicing Thursday.

Watkins was expected to test out his foot either Wednesday or today, so his absence is not a great sign. It is possible he returns to the practice field Friday, but his Week 4 chances are not looking good.
Sep 29 - 11:51 AM

Eric Decker (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

Decker was on the field, but he did not even stretch with the team. His absence is not surprising considering he was headed for an MRI after missing Wednesday's session. It is extremely unlikely he suits up this week. Quincy Enunwa should see a big bump in targets with Decker sidelined, and he is available in a ton of leagues.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said the team will "make sure" Brandon Marshall gets the ball.

"I’m sure (defenses are) paying attention to him; they were paying attention to him last year," Bowles said. "We just have to find better ways to get him the ball." Marshall does have 27 targets through three games, but he has caught just 12 of those for 160 yards and, most concerningly, zero touchdowns. Marshall places the blame on the offense "trying to be scientists" instead of just playing. With Eric Decker looking likely to miss some time with a shoulder injury, Marshall will have to be more effective moving forward.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said the team has "thrown too much" in the last two games.

Jameis Winston has thrown 110 times total in the last two games after attempting more than 40 passes just three times as a rookie. "For our team to be successful," Koetter said, "we can't be throwing in the 50s and we can't be running in the 20s." Game scripts and the injury to Doug Martin have certainly played a role in the pass-heavy approach, but Koetter knows he needs to reel it in. After the Bengals had success running at the Broncos last week, the Bucs could try a similar gameplan on Sunday.

Jaguars OC Greg Olson vowed to "get this run game fixed."

Running backs have averaged just 2.24 yards per carry for the Jaguars this season, and it did not get any better in Chris Ivory's return last week. The running game has a theoretical "get-right game" against the Colts on Sunday, but Indy played much better against the run last week and are starting to get healthy. With the offensive line in shambles, the Jaguars will struggle to run the ball all season.
