Bucs CB Michael Adams underwent knee surgery Wednesday.

Adams will miss multiple weeks, but is expected to avoid injured reserve. He should return as the Bucs' No. 4 corner and contribute on special teams.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley said it "wouldn't be surprising" if Terrance West took over as the starter this week.

Coach John Harbaugh talked about making changes in the backfield this week, and swapping out Justin Forsett for West is the most logical option. Forsett has just 98 yards on 31 carries this season and zero touchdowns. West has not been much better (33-for-119), but he has looked like a much better runner. Rookie Kenneth Dixon (knee) should also get a shot once he returns from injury.

Colts owner Jim Irsay said there is no serious issue with Andrew Luck's shoulder.

No serious issue is not the same as no issue. Still, Irsay said Luck will not need surgery, and the shoulder will not cause him to miss a game this year. The Colts will continue to manage Luck's practice reps all season, but there is no reason to believe it will affect him on Sundays.

When asked if Eric Decker's shoulder injury was potentially season-ending, Jets coach Todd Bowles said he is "not sure."

Decker has a partially torn right rotator cuff. "They have to monitor it," Bowles said. "[Doctors] said some people play with it over the course of time. We’ll see how it goes." Surgery is reportedly not an option right now, but it could be if the injury does not improve through rest and rehab. It looks like Decker will miss at least several weeks. Quincy Enunwa needs to be owned everywhere.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley expects rookie RB Kenneth Dixon (knee, doubtful) to be "eased back into the mix."

Dixon will not play this week, and he will likely be limited even if he returns against Washington Week 5. Once he is healthy, Dixon should be in something of a timeshare with Terrance West and perhaps Justin Forsett. Dixon is a good bench stash in deeper formats, but he will likely spend most if not all of the season in a committee.

ESPN Eagles reporter Tim McManus said fifth-round RB Wendell Smallwood should see "plenty of opportunities" this season.

McManus cautions Ryan Mathews should still be the lead back when healthy, but he correctly points out Mathews has struggled to stay on the field throughout his career. "There should be plenty of opportunities for Smallwood over the course of the season," McManus said, "and those opportunities will likely grow if he continues to produce like he did against the Steelers." Smallwood had 79 yards and a touchdown against Pittsburgh. He is a great speculative add in deeper leagues.

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson said Jordan Howard will be "more of a committee guy" once Jeremy Langford (ankle) returns.

Langford will be out at least another month, so this is not an immediate concern to Howard's fantasy value. More importantly, Langford was terrible before going down, so Howard could certainly win the starting job outright with good performances the next several weeks. He should start on the right foot against a banged up Lions defense this week.

Sam Bradford said Kyle Rudolph is "one of those guys as a quarterback that you can just trust."

"He’s just one of those guys who is kind of easy to develop chemistry with," Bradford said. "You know that if you put the ball in his area, he’s going to go up and he’s going to make a play and he’s going to get it." The veracity of that statement is certainly up for debate, but it is clear Bradford trusts his big tight end. Rudolph has 10 catches for 101 yards and two scores in two games with Bradford this season, and he is a good bet to keep the touchdown streak alive Monday night against the Giants.

WEEI's Kirk Minihane reports Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder, questionable) will start Sunday against the Bills.

Garoppolo was always going to start over Jacoby Brissett if healthy, so his shoulder was the only question. After getting in limited practices all week, it seems Garoppolo is ready to get back to work. Tom Brady will return from suspension next week.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Rashad Jennings (thumb) could be a "game-day" decision.

Jennings was limited again on Friday. The back said he hoped to have a better idea of his Week 4 status following Friday's practice, but there have not been any reports on what that idea is. It still is unlikely Jennings plays Monday night, but the uncertainty makes it tough to trust him or Orleans Darkwa in a tough matchup.

Bills placed WR Sammy Watkins (foot) on injured reserve.

Watkins was already ruled out for Week 4. His foot injury wasn't showing any signs of improving, though the reports were he was only dealing with pain management. Watkins will miss at least the next eight weeks on I.R, making Week 12 his earliest possible return. It's a huge blow to an offense that doesn't have any playmakers outside of LeSean McCoy. Buffalo signed Justin Hunter to add depth behind Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin.
Sep 30 - 5:30 PM

Michael Floyd (concussion) has been removed from the Cardinals' injury report.

Floyd was cleared after practicing fully the last two days. He'll be a low-end WR3 against a Rams secondary that can take away the outside. Floyd has caught just nine of his 24 targets this season.
