Bears waived/injured S Brandon Hardin.

Early reports left out the "injured" part. Hardin broke his shoulder in Thursday's preseason finale. Exposing Hardin to waivers is quite an admission of defeat for GM Phil Emery, and a vote of no confidence in Hardin's health. Hardin missed his entire rookie year with a neck injury. An imposing 6-foot-3, 217-pounds with excellent speed, injuries also cost Hardin his entire senior year at Oregon State.

Coach Jeff Fisher announced that Austin Davis will be the Rams' starting quarterback moving forward.

Fisher says there will be "no short hook." After initially claiming Shaun Hill would resume the starting job once 100 percent healthy from a Week 1 thigh injury, Fisher has changed course. Rightfully so. Among quarterbacks with at least 90 pass attempts, Davis is tops in the league with his 72.3 completion percentage. He's averaging a healthy 8.0 YPA with a 3:3 TD:INT ratio. He's had a couple back-breaking turnovers, but Davis has generally moved the offense pretty well. Davis has a plus matchup against the Eagles this week, but is still a QB2. Davis isn't the long-term option past 2014. The Rams should know that.

Carson Palmer will seek a second opinion on the nerve issue in his throwing shoulder.

After signs of progress last week when Palmer threw on the side at practice, his status for Week 5 is headed back downhill. Palmer was reportedly noticeably down on Monday when he tried to throw on the side. It appears better than 50:50 that Drew Stanton will get another start. Arizona will be cautious with Palmer.

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Packers.

Bridgewater missed practice Monday and Tuesday before the Vikings went through a walkthrough on Wednesday. The No. 32 pick in May's draft is looking like a full-blown game-time decision for Thursday night. Coach Mike Zimmer said the team has plans in place if Bridgewater can't go. Christian Ponder would start.
Oct 1 - 3:00 PM

Brandon Marshall (ankle) is practicing in full Wednesday.

It's great news after coach Marc Trestman said Monday that the Bears would have to take a "good look" at Marshall's health this week. Playing on one leg the past two games, Marshall has caught a total of three passes fro 25 yards as more of a decoy. Marshall will have to avoid setbacks the rest of the week, but it's looking like he'll be healthier for Week 5 against the Panthers.
Oct 1 - 2:56 PM

Joique Bell (concussion) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Bell suffered a concussion in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Jets. Fantasy's No. 38 running back, Bell is averaging just 3.2 YPC on 48 totes through four games. He's averaging a meager 33 yards rushing per game the past three weeks. Bell is day-to-day. If he can't play, Reggie Bush will handle the majority of the work against the Bills. Bell has been a big-time disappointment.
Oct 1 - 2:47 PM

Jake Locker (wrist) returned to practice Wednesday and was throwing with "no issues."

Beat writer Jim Wyatt observed Locker throwing well with "good velocity." Early signs point to Locker returning to the lineup after missing last week's start against the Titans. Locker is averaging 228 yards passing through three starts with a 3:4 TD:INT ratio. He'd be a bottom-barrel QB2 option against the Browns.
Oct 1 - 2:36 PM

Knowshon Moreno (elbow) said he's four weeks away from returning.

"I probably got like four more weeks," Moreno said. "About four more weeks and I’ll be good." The Dolphins were hoping to have Moreno back in Week 6 when they come out of their bye. He's now targeting Week 8 against Jacksonville for his return. Lamar Miller will continue to be Miami's lead back for at least the next three games, with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams backing him up.
Oct 1 - 1:19 PM

Jonathan Stewart (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

The Panthers are desperate for running back help, and coach Ron Rivera said he's hopeful Stewart will be able to suit up this week against the Bears. Stewart hurt his knee in Week 3 and was initially slapped with a month-long timetable. He's not going to be 100 percent, but the Panthers may need him to play. Stewart would be a mere RB3 while handling around a dozen carries.
Oct 1 - 12:43 PM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he "definitely" feels better now than he did at this point last week.

After missing the bulk of practice last week, Megatron was essentially used as a decoy in the win over the Jets when he caught 2-of-2 targets for a measly 12 yards. Following the game, Johnson hinted he was playing at considerably less than 100 percent. Johnson will likely be limited most of the week once again, but expect him to play against the Bills and see plenty of double-coverage.
Oct 1 - 12:01 PM

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Bishop Sankey will likely get more reps than he has all season against the Browns this week.

"You will see (more reps for Sankey). That's coming," Whisenhunt said. "And I think you'll see more of that earlier in the game this week." Sankey has actually led the Titans' running backs in snaps the past two weeks with 22 and 29, respectively, but they've been coming in the second half when the Titans have been getting plastered on the scoreboard. Whisenhunt is finally realizing Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster aren't good. Sankey has managed 127 yards and one touchdown on 19 touches the past two weeks. Cleveland has allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Sankey has RB2 upside.
Oct 1 - 10:49 AM

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

The "hope" is that Bridgewater will be ready for Wednesday's walk-through, but Bridgewater himself has made it clear that he's no sure thing for Thursday's game against the Packers. The short week couldn't be coming at a worse time for the Vikes, who could be forced to turn to Christian Ponder in an important divisional tilt.
