49ers waived QB B.J. Daniels.

It's surprising the passing-deficient rookie made it this long on the active roster. The 49ers are reportedly signing John Skelton as their new No. 3 quarterback behind Colin Kaepernick and Colt McCoy. They will presumably try to stash Daniels on the practice squad. He was a seventh-round pick in April's draft.

Eric Decker (hamstring) sat out team drills in Thursday's practice.

It's unclear if he'll be listed as limited or DNP. Coach Rex Ryan is "confident" Decker will be available for Monday's game against the Bears, but that could change if Decker doesn't progress over the next two days of practice. For now, Decker should be considered a high-risk WR3.

A.J. Green (foot) returned to Bengals practice Thursday.

He'll likely be listed as "limited." It puts Green on track to play in Sunday's game against the Titans, but how he bounces back on Friday will be key. His status cannot be taken for granted. Even if Green does suit up, he'll be more of a low-end WR1 than his usual top-three self. There's a chance he'll draw much-fewer targets than usual as a decoy.

Vikings OC Norv Turner said he will use both Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon in Sunday's game against the Saints.

Turner added that he might use one back more than the other if someone gets a hot hand. Asiata will have the first crack to get that hot hand as he'll almost certainly start the game, but we know this low-upside bulldozer with a career 3.56 YPC won't help the Adrian Peterson-less Vikings move the ball consistently. The freaky McKinnon could, but has to prove reliable and pass protect better (one sack allowed on three pass pro chances Week 2). Asiata remains the "safer" Week 3 fantasy flex play, but McKinnon is the better long-term hold.

Marqise Lee (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Lee has been battling this hamstring issue since originally tweaking it in the opener. Already in danger of losing his starting job, he'll now really be placed on the back burner and can be dropped in re-draft fantasy formats. Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle) project as the Jags starters if they're active. Allen Robinson and Mike Brown would also have roles.

According NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play in Thursday night's game against the Falcons.

Martin will test out his knee pregame before the Bucs make his status official. But it's now crystal clear that Bobby Rainey is a borderline RB1 play against a Falcons defense that has already given up 284 yards and five touchdowns to opponent tailbacks. Reports already had the hot Rainey, growing into a coaching staff favorite, in line to start the game. He also started against the Falcons in Week 11 of last year, going for 167 total yards on 32 touches and scoring three touchdowns.

Coach Sean Payton said Khiry Robinson will be "ready for the workload" with Mark Ingram (hand) sidelined.

The Saints also showed confidence in Robinson late last season, giving him 21 carries in their two playoff games. Now he's staring a monster opportunity in the face as he'll pair with passing back Pierre Thomas for the next month. A powerful, elusive runner that's underrated in the pass game, Robinson is definitely on the flex radar for this week's home game against the shell-shocked Vikings. Ingram scored three goal-line touchdowns in the first two weeks, a role Robinson is expected to take over.

Coach Marvin Lewis said he expects A.J. Green (toe) to play in Sunday's game against the Titans.

Green was less optimistic than his head coach on Wednesday, saying he "doesn't know at this point" if he'll be able to suit up. Note that the Bengals have a bye in Week 4. "It's just getting the range of motion back on that big toe," said Green. "That's the biggest thing, because I'm always on that. I feel good. I still have some treatment to do, but it's getting better." The Pro Bowl wideout is expected to test the toe out during Thursday's practice. If he ends up as a game-time Sunday, we'll know his official status by noon ET.

Eric Decker did not even need an MRI on the hamstring he injured in the Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

It's pretty surprising considering this is an aggravation of the right hammy issue that bothered Decker during training camp. But no need for an MRI confirms that this is a very mild strain, one that he could very well play through on Monday night. We'll know more based on practice reports over the next three days.

Packers OC Tom Clements brushed off a suggestion that the Packers are feeding Jordy Nelson too much.

Through two weeks, Nelson leads the NFL in targets with 30 -- 15 more than any other Packer. "I don't think we're relying too much on him," Clements said. "We still try to move the ball around, but Jordy is a top-notch receiver and we're going to try to get him the ball." The Packers realize they have one of the most versatile, talented players in the league at their disposal and aren't going to shy away from using him. Expect another monster game against the Lions Sunday.

Coach Mike McCarthy said WR Davante Adams has "earned opportunities" and produced.

McCarthy declined to name Adams his new starter opposite Jordy Nelson, but it appears we're eventually heading in that direction. After a Jarrett Boykin red-zone drop in Week 2, Adams came on and shined with a 5-50-0 line on seven targets and 37 snaps. As the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says, Boykin is "steady" but Adams can "stress a defense." The second-round rookie is the one to stash as the potential home run if he can fully pass Boykin. As for this week's potential shootout with the Lions, expect a rotation.
Sep 18 - 8:06 AM

Lamar Miller (ankle) is absent from the Week 3 injury report.

Miller tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss, but it wasn't serious enough to limit his reps this week. Taking over as the No. 1 back in the absence of Knowshon Moreno (elbow), Miller has RB2 appeal in the Dolphins' newly run-heavy offense.
