A source tells NFL Network that Percy Harvin (hip) will resume practicing next week.

Since the Seahawks play the Thursday night game this week and the Monday nighter in Week 8, they'll have a ton of down time. It provides an excellent window for Harvin to test out his surgically-repaired hip and start working his way back into football shape. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he should play in games "sooner rather than later." This report comes on the heels of whispers that Harvin is well ahead of schedule and extremely optimistic quotes from coach Pete Carroll. It sounds like Harvin is a good bet to play before the Week 12 bye, making him a must-own in all formats. If truly healthy, there isn't a more dangerous player with the ball in his hands in the entire league.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Shane Vereen (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday against the Raiders.

Vereen is listed as questionable, just like most other players on the New England injury report. The Raiders are banged up on defense, and we'd expect the Patriots to run through them with Vereen and Stevan Ridley. Vereen's status will be know within the next 45 minutes. He's one the RB2 radar.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Robert Griffin III's (ankle) timetable is 6-8 weeks.

The Redskins have declined to officially release a timetable because they want to keep their options open. Expect Griffin to be out until the Week 10 bye, at which point they can decide if they'll stick with Kirk Cousins or go back to RG3. We wouldn't bother holding the former No. 2 overall pick in 10- and 12-team fantasy leagues.

Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) are both expected to play in Monday night's game against the Jets.

Both wideouts are officially listed as questionable. But they appear to be in far better shape than they were last Sunday night, when they combined for eight catches, 95 yards and three touchdowns. In a plus matchup against the Jets, Marshall and Jeffery are top-12 options.

Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Washington, D.C. reports the Redskins are "planning on having" DeSean Jackson (shoulder) active for Week 3 against the Eagles.

Russell adds that "for now," this is the plan. Jackson remains a game-time decision. The Redskins will put him through an extensive pre-game workout and make a decision afterward. Multiple reports have been that Jackson's shoulder remains a definite issue. There's a chance he could play a very limited role.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen said he expects Wes Welker to be a third-down or role player in Sunday's Week 3 game at Seattle.

It's Welker's first game off suspension and first game since suffering his latest concussion. The Broncos project to stick with the two-tight end sets they've been featuring a lot of so far, only bringing Welker in on pass downs for now. He'll eventually get on the WR2/3 map, but this is not the week to use the slot machine. He already had a terrible matchup playing at CenturyLink Field.
Sep 21 - 10:10 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is expected to play against the Ravens.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora has a similar report. After sitting out Week 2 in an effort to get his shoulder some rest, Cameron will be back in the mix as a mid-range TE1 as the Browns' No. 1 pass-game option. The Ravens have allowed just nine catches for 88 yards to opposing tight ends through two games.
Sep 21 - 10:01 AM

Appearing on GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jamaal Charles (ankle) is not expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins.

Rapoport reported earlier in the morning that Charles had a "real chance" to suit up against Miami. The Chiefs will put Charles through a pre-game workout, so he's still a true game-time decision. The situation remains fluid. If Charles can't go, Knile Davis will be dropped into his role as an every-down workhorse.
Sep 21 - 9:36 AM

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson is "hearing some rumblings" that Bernard Pierce's (thigh) availability is in "serious doubt" for Week 3 against the Browns.

Signs have been pointing against Pierce the past couple days. He was added to the injury report Thursday. We never like mid-week injuries. The Ravens then signed RB Fitzgerald Toussaint off the practice squad Saturday. If Pierce can't go, Justin Forsett and darkhorse rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro will carry the load.
Sep 21 - 8:54 AM

Appearing on GameDay First, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Arian Foster (hamstring) is a "long shot" to play against the Giants on Sunday.

It appears Foster's league-high 55 carries have already caught up to him. As a 28-year-old workhorse with past hamstring issues, Foster simply can't hold up to this insane workload. It's likely to be the Alfred Blue show this week against the G-Men, with Ronnie Brown mixing in on passing downs. Blue has some RB2/FLEX appeal in this run-heavy offense. The Giants are missing MLB Jon Beason.
Sep 21 - 8:42 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Raiders "don't expect to have" Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) available for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Patriots.

It'll be the Darren McFadden show once again in the Oakland backfield. Latavius Murray will be the change-of-pace, with Marcel Reece also getting a couple carries. MJD practiced Thursday and Friday and is listed as questionable. He already has nothing left in the tank, so if Jones-Drew isn't 100 percent healthy he doesn't do the team any good. McFadden is a RB3 this week.
Sep 21 - 8:33 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it's "doubtful" Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) plays Sunday against the Cardinals.

It's been shaping up this way all week. Davis hasn't practiced since leaving last Sunday night's Week 2 loss against the Bears on crutches. Derek Carrier is expected to get the start at tight end in an extremely favorable matchup.
