Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan called Robert Griffin III (knee) "fine," and said he expects him to practice on Wednesday.

Griffin's removal from Sunday's loss was purely precautionary. Even if he's listed as "limited" on Wednesday's injury report, there will be no reason to worry about his Week 9 status.

Vernon Davis has been ruled out of Sunday night's Week 2 game against the Bears with an ankle injury.

Davis injured his ankle after being dragged down from behind on a tackle in the fourth quarter. He was able to limp off the field, but wasn't able to return. Davis secured all three of his targets for 39 yards prior to going down. At the very least, he's likely going to miss practice time this week.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "early indications" are Jamaal Charles' ankle sprain is "mild."

The same goes for SS Eric Berry, who like Charles exited Sunday's loss to Denver and did not return. Per La Canfora, the team is "hopeful neither will miss significant time." Charles is believed to be scheduled for a Monday morning MRI. It does sound like Charles has a shot to play in Week 3 at Miami, but Knile Davis needs to be owned everywhere. The fact that Charles never reentered after the first-quarter injury suggests he was in a lot of pain.

The Union-Tribune San Diego confirms the "initial prognosis" for Ryan Mathews' right knee injury is a sprained MCL.

It remains "unclear how much time" Mathews will miss. Mathews is expected to be "further evaluated," but a sprained MCL would be good news at this point, as opposed to an ACL tear. Mathews could be back within a month. The Chargers' bye isn't until Week 10, so Mathews won't have that date to work around. Look for Donald Brown to take over as San Diego's primary back while Danny Woodhead continues to handle most passing-down and change-of-pace work.

The Redskins currently hope Robert Griffin III (ankle) will only miss 4-5 weeks.

Griffin suffered a dislocated ankle in the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He'll have an MRI on Monday to determine whether surgery is necessary and exactly how long he'll be out. Kirk Cousins, who shredded the Jags for 250 yards and two touchdowns in relief Sunday, will be a QB2 against the Eagles in Week 3.

Free agent RB Ray Rice will appeal his indefinite suspension Monday.

The NFLPA, along with an outside lawyer retained by Rice, will handle the appeal. It's a no-brainer for the player's union to get involved despite the stomach-turning nature of Rice's crime as They don't want to allow a precedent to get set. Regardless, Rice is almost certainly done in the NFL because his on-field decline isn't worth the off-field issues he now comes with.

The Bengals' official website says "indications" are that A.J. Green (toe/foot) will be able to return after the Week 4 bye.

The initial testing on Green's foot was negative for broken bones and he's been diagnosed with turf toe -- also known as a ligament strain. He wasn't spotted on crutches and said he hopes to play vs. the Titans in Week 3, but that doesn't seem very realistic at this point. If Green sits out that game, he'll get another two weeks of rest before the Bengals play at New England in Week 5. Mohamed Sanu's stock is on the rise.

James Jones converted 9-of-14 targets into 112 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

The rest of Oakland's receivers are either not good (Denarius Moore) or low-ceiling possession types (Rod Streater, Mychal Rivera), so Jones appears to have a stranglehold on targets as long as he's getting every-down work. He did not in Week 1, but still delivered a 3-34-1 stat line. Jones was an every-down receiver in Week 2, and paid dividends. He faces the Patriots next and will be a high-risk, arguably high-upside WR3 option against Darrelle Revis & Co.

Bobby Rainey rushed for 144 yards on 22 carries in the Bucs' 19-17, Week 2 loss to the Rams, adding three catches for 30 yards.

Starting in place of an injured Doug Martin (knee), Rainey played an every-down role and found consistent running room against a normally-stingy Rams run defense. The Bucs said Martin could have played, but since they're on a short week and playing this upcoming Thursday, they decided to hold him out. Rainey could produce RB1 numbers if Martin doesn't return next week. The Falcons have been shredded on the ground the first two games.

Coach Andy Reid said Jamaal Charles suffered a sprained ankle in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Denver.

It must be a pretty good sprain, as Charles left in the first quarter and was ruled out for the day shortly thereafter. Talented backup Knile Davis came on to total 105 yards and two touchdowns on 28 touches. Consider Charles very questionable for Week 3 at Miami as we await the results of a Monday morning MRI.

Knile Davis rushed for 79 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in the Chiefs' Week 2, 24-17 loss to the Broncos, adding six catches for 26 yards.

Jamaal Charles exited the game early in the first half with a sprained ankle and never returned. Davis was dropped into the every-down role and became the focal point of the offense, as if he actually were Charles. Davis was targeted nine times in the passing game to lead the team. His college tape wasn't very impressive at Arkansas, but Davis has looked plenty athletic and shifty since being drafted by the Chiefs. He'll be in the RB1/2 conversation next week agains the Dolphins should Charles miss. Davis will be the top waiver add this week.

Austin Davis completed 22-of-29 passes for 235 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the Rams' Week 2, 19-17 win over the Bucs.

Davis looked much better than anyone could have expected. He hung tough in the pocket, staring in the face of pressure, and delivering strikes to his receivers. The second-year UDFA, making his first NFL start, posted an impressive 99.1 passer rating and 8.1 YPA. He moved the offense down the field and didn't make any mistakes, hooking up with Brian Quick seven times for 74 yards. With the win, Davis likely bought himself another start next week at home against the Cowboys even if Shaun Hill (thigh) is healthy. He's a low-end QB2/3.
