Saints GM Mickey Loomis confirmed impending free agent Jimmy Graham will be franchise-tagged if the two sides can't agree to a long-term contract.

As expected. Graham isn't going anywhere. In addition to saying Graham will be tagged if need be, Loomis said the Saints will tag him as a tight end because "that's where he was drafted and that's what he is." Graham's camp may beg to differ. He played just one-third of his snaps as a traditional tight end in 2013. The difference between the tight-end tag and the receiver tag was $4.5 million last year. We could have a real contract dispute on our hands.

Julius Thomas (elbow) will be a game-time decision for Week 4 against the Colts.

Thomas practices with his elbow in a brace on Friday. He's officially questionable for the London affair. With the Colts and Jaguars kicking off at 9:30 AM ET, owners can wait for inactives before making backup plans for Thomas.

Coach Bill O'Brien will take over offensive play-calling duties Week 4 against the Titans.

O'Brien called the plays in his first season (2014) as head coach, but turned those duties over to OC George Godsey last year. After three weeks this season, the Texans are dead-last in red-zone success and field Football Outsiders' 32nd-ranked offense in DVOA. They have just three touchdowns in three games. Against Tennessee, this presents a get-right spot.

A.J. Green caught 10-of-12 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati's Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

Going to work against no-names Xavien Howard and Tony Lippett, Green already had eight catches for 123 yards and his score by halftime. He didn't need to do more after the break of a non-competitive game. 3/77/1 of Green's production came on one first quarter drive. He beat perfect coverage from Howard for a 51-yard catch down the right sideline before clownsuiting Lippett on a screen for his score. The 10-catch effort was already Green's second of 2016. He's now averaging eight grabs per game. He should feast again against the Cowboys in Week 5.

Ryan Tannehill completed 15-of-25 passes for 189 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Miami's 22-7, Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

He also lost a fumble. Tannehill tossed a 74-yard touchdown on the Dolphins' second play from scrimmage and then proceeded to be stunningly terrible. Tannehill was certainly disadvantaged by awful offensive line play, but played with the pocket awareness of a seventh-round rookie. It was as if Tannehill was completely incapable of feeling pressure. Coach Adam Gase did a bafflingly-poor job of rectifying the situation with rollouts, etc., but Tannehill simply has to be better five years into his career. He'll be flirting with a benching if he continues to play like this. Tannehill will be a last-gasp QB2 against the Titans in Week 5.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports J.J. Watt underwent back surgery on Thursday and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

This was the fear and expectation all along since it was revealed on Tuesday that Watt re-injured his back. It's believed to be a recurrence of the herniated disk that Watt needed surgery for in the offseason. The Texans will need more from former No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus.

Redskins CB Josh Norman is not expected to shadow Terrelle Pryor on Sunday.

Pryor is coming off a monster game, but has five inches on the 6-foot-0 Norman. He's also used all over the alignment. "We’re still working on our game plan now and (Pryor's) all over the place," coach Jay Gruden said. "Team defense is gonna have to take him away, somebody different every time possibly." Gruden lays out the situation pretty accurately. Pryor is an upside WR2.

Jimmy Graham (knee) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

Graham was limited on Wednesday. It's unclear if Graham tweaked something or the Seahawks are just managing his reps after he played 47 snaps against the 49ers. Friday will obviously tell the story. Graham is just a mid-range TE2 when active.

The Dolphins have announced Damien Williams as their Week 4 starter at running back.

Coach Adam Gase is sending shockwaves through his team, benching starters on both sides of the ball. Not that Jay Ajayi and Kenyan Drake were actual starters. A four-man committee between Williams, Drake, Ajayi and Isaiah Pead remains likely. The situation should be avoided at all costs for fantasy purposes. Williams won't see more than 10-12 touches, and even that might not happen.

Dolphins declared LT Branden Albert (ankle) inactive for Week 4 vs. the Bengals.

LG Laremy Tunsil, drafted in the first round as a tackle, will kick over to the blindside. Albert was a game-time decision, and should be back for Week 5. Also inactive for the Dolphins are RB Arian Foster, C Mike Pouncey, C Anthony Steen, LB Jelani Jenkins, LB Koa Misi and TE Jordan Cameron. With Pouncey and Steen sidelined, the Dolphins are down to their third-string center.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are scaling back CB Byron Maxwell's snaps for Week 4.

NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports Maxwell has been outright benched, and that Tony Lippett will start opposite rookie Xavien Howard. Maxwell's dismal Eagles play has carried over to Miami, where he's been one of the league's worst corners on 244 snaps. A second-year fifth-rounder, Lippett is also a disaster waiting to happen. He hasn't played a defensive snap this season. Miami's secondary is a massive trouble spot.

Both the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Akron Beacon-Journal believe Josh Gordon has played his last snap for the Browns.

Per the Beacon-Journal's Nate Ulrich, Gordon is "not expected to receive another shot with this regime." Gordon has been given 10th and 11th chances by the Browns, and burned them every time. It's good to see Gordon trying to get his life in order by checking into rehab, but he's lucky to have lasted as long as he did in Cleveland. Gordon is still somehow only 25 years old, but he's dangerously close to forcing his way out of the league.
