Latest Headlines

Wes Welker (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17.

The bad news is Welker isn't quite cleared for game action. The good news is he's almost certainly on track for a postseason return, getting in a limited practice every day this week. The Broncos will turn to some combination of Jacob Tamme and Eric Decker to replace Welker at slot receiver against the Raiders. Andre Caldwell will be mixed in on the perimeter.

Sam Bradford (knee) is uncertain for Week 4.

Coach Mike Zimmer called Bradford day to day. He also confirmed Bradford will remain the team's starter despite Case Keenum's explosive Week 3. That's hardly surprising, of course. The tea leaves suggest Bradford is going to miss another game, leaving Keenum to start against the Lions.

49ers placed OLB Tank Carradine on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.

Carradine went down in last Thursday's loss to the Rams. He can resume practicing in six weeks and return to game action in eight. Elvis Dumervil is ticketed for the biggest uptick in snaps in Carradine's absence.

Julio Jones is dealing with a lower-back injury, and will be limited in practice this week.

Jones picked up the injury at some point in Sunday's narrow win over the Lions. Coach Dan Quinn didn't seem concerned about Jones' Week 4 status, but it's obviously something to monitory. Jones could be "DNP" on Wednesday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Although Jones hasn’t scored yet, he's seen an increase in targets each week and he picked up three end zone looks this past weekend. He’ll try to find paint against the Bills but it could be a tough spot. He'll see a healthy dose of E.J. Gaines, who’s been solid. After being targeted 22 times through three weeks, he's limited receivers to a 10/79/0 line. However, Jones will also see Tre'Davious White, who's given up the 13th-most receiving yards (164) on 10 catches. Since Gaines doesn’t move, the Falcons could match up Jones with White near the end zone and provide him more scoring opportunities. The Falcons are implied to score 28.25 points.

Jordan Howard (shoulder) is absent from the Bears' Week 4 injury report.

It's a major surprise given the way Howard was favoring his shoulder on Sunday. Either way, Howard produced like he was at full health against the Steelers, and will be needed for a major workload in Thursday's game against the Packers. There's still volatility here — the Bears' offense is a weekly threat to go off the rails, and Tarik Cohen should remain the preferred passing-down back — but Howard has re-established himself in the top 20.

Giants RE Olivier Vernon is dealing with an ankle injury.

"It’s still early in the week," coach Ben McAdoo said Monday. "We have to see how he responds to treatment." Vernon missed 17 snaps against the Eagles. Vernon hasn't become a transcendent superstar since signing his five-year, $85 million contract, but has certainly been a major asset for the G-Men. He would be a big loss for Week 4 against the Bucs.

Samaje Perine has been diagnosed with a bruised hand, and is day to day.

Perine's injury looked fairly ugly, so it's great news. As was the case in Week 2, Perine was struggling to generate yards before going down. If Rob Kelley (ribs) is healthy for Week 4, Perine will return to a reserve role.

An MRI revealed no structural damage to Kelvin Benjamin's left knee, but his Week 4 status is unclear.

Coach Ron Rivera didn't have much of an update beyond Benjamin's MRI news. We would consider him genuinely questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. A limited practice on Wednesday would be a great sign.

Bucs WLB Lavonte David has been officially diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

David's initial X-rays were negative, but an MRI revealed the sprain. David was carted off the field against the Vikings. NFL.com reports he is expected to miss "a month or more." David was off to a hot start for a Bucs defense dealing with a number of injuries.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien hinted Will Fuller (collarbone) may play Week 4 against the Titans.

He was able to practice on a limited basis last week. Asked about Fuller's chances of playing against the Titans, O'Brien said he is "hearing some good things." Once Fuller returns, he will be no better than a WR4 dart throw in a limited passing offense.

Pro Football Talk reports Teddy Bridgewater (knee, PUP) will be healthy enough to play when first eligible to return Week 7 against the Ravens.

PFT reports the Vikings plan to "proceed with caution," suggesting Bridgewater will not be thrown into the fire even if he is healthy enough to play, but that could change if Sam Bradford (knee) continues to miss time. Case Keenum started and played extremely well in the Week 3 win over the Bucs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Doug Baldwin's groin injury is not believed to be "serious."

He will undergo an MRI on Monday to make sure. Baldwin broke out against the Titans before exiting, catching 10 passes for 105 yards and a touchdown. If he is healthy, Baldwin will be a high-end WR2 against the Colts, but his status may come down to the weekend.
