Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) and Rashard Mendenhall (toe) are both listed as questionable for Week 3, but returned to Cardinals practice Friday.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians had to physically force Fitzgerald off the practice field early in the week, but let him back out there Friday as he prepares to start against the Saints. Despite last week's bump in the road, Fitz will be a top-15 fantasy wideout start in Week 3. Mendenhall's availability never seemed in doubt. He's squarely in the flex-start discussion in a prime matchup; New Orleans has been an early-year sieve in run defense.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch's Jim Thomas reports Austin Davis got the "lion's share" of the Rams' first-team quarterback reps at Wednesday's practice.

Shaun Hill (thigh) participated in individual drills and remains day-to-day. Case Keenum received a couple of reps with the starters in 11-on-11 drills. But Austin Davis is the clear favorite to start against the Cowboys after leading the Rams to a 19-17 win over the Bucs last Sunday. The Rams will pound the ball on the ground and let Davis "manage" the game with short passes. He's a low-end QB2/3.

Eric Decker (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Decker stretched with the team and spent the rest of the practice off to the side doing agility drills and some light running under the supervision of trainers. Decker first injured his hamstring in training camp. The Jets have been quiet on their No. 1 receiver's status. Decker will be updated again on Thursday.

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure says there's "no doubt" Roddy White (hamstring, questionable) will play Thursday night against the Bucs.

McClure has been on top of the Roddy White news all week. Although the 32-year-old hasn't practiced at all, there are no concerns about his availability for Week 3. White is a rock-solid WR2 even against Bucs LCB Alterraun Verner.

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Wednesday.

That's the good news for the Jaguars. The bad news is that Marqise Lee was forced to leave practice early after re-tweaking his hamstring injury from last week. Both should be considered highly questionable for Week 3 against the Colts. UDFA Allen Hurns (ankle) missed practice altogether on Wednesday. If none of the three can play, Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would be the starters.
Sep 17 - 3:50 PM

Doug Martin (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Falcons.

Despite the questionable tag, Martin practiced all week and is expected to play. He ran with the first-team offense over Bobby Rainey and appears on track to start. Martin will be an RB2/3 against the Falcons' bottom-ten run defense.

Panthers placed RE Greg Hardy on the NFL's exempt/commissioner's permission list.

As expected. After the Vikings used the exempt list to banish Adrian Peterson while his child-abuse case is resolved, it gave the Panthers an avenue to use on Hardy. The 26-year-old Pro Bowl pass rusher was convicted of domestic assault in July. The Panthers are a little late to the party after Hardy was allowed to play Week 1, but the NFL also has done absolutely nothing to punish Hardy. He'll now stay away from the team for an undetermined amount of time while collecting his $13.116 million guaranteed salary. The Panthers will roll with a combination of Kony Ealy and Mario Addison opposite LE Charles Johnson. No. 3 DE Frank Alexander has two more games left on his four-game suspension.
Sep 17 - 2:24 PM

Jamaal Charles (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

As expected. Charles is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, though it's believed to be of the mild variety. He's unlikely to suit up this week against the Dolphins. Knile Davis will have RB1/2 value as the Chiefs' every-down workhorse.
Sep 17 - 1:16 PM

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) said he plans to play Week 3 against the Eagles.

"I don't plan on missing this game," Jackson said. You can bet Jackson will do everything in his power to play his first game back in Philly. And look for the Redskins to get him some looks early against his former teammates. Jackson can be penciled into fantasy lineups. His practice status will be updated later today.
Sep 17 - 12:09 PM

A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Green says he'll try to practice Thursday. He hopes to play this week against the Titans, but "doesn't know at this point." Green originally hurt the toe in the first quarter of the season opener and aggravated it early in Week 2. Green will likely be a game-time decision. His status will be updated again Thursday.

Wes Welker, Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick, and Rams WR Stedman Bailey are all allowed to return to their teams immediately and play Week 3 after the NFL and NFLPA agreed to a new drug policy Wednesday.

All three players can return to their respective teams' facilities Wednesday morning and begin practicing with their clubs. Welker has already been cleared of his preseason concussion and should be back in the lineup Sunday against the Seahawks. The Broncos will have to see where Welker is at physically after he hasn't practiced with the teams for a few weeks, but we'd expect him to be out there at least in a limited role. He'll eventually be on the WR2/3 map.

The NFL and NFLPA have officially agreed to an overhauled drug policy.

The two sides have agreed to "wide-ranging improvements" to their policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Among other things, the league will now test for HGH and start that process this season. Final details of the new agreement on the substance-abuse policy are still being worked out. The NFL announced Wes Welker, Orlando Scandrick, and Stedman Bailey can rejoin their teams immediately. A first positive test for steroids, HGH, stimulants or other banned substances will result in a four-game ban. A second violation is a 10-game suspension, while a third positive test will be a two-year ban.
