When asked about his quarterback situation, the first words out of new coach Mike Pettine's mouth were "Brian Hoyer."

"I've always admired Brian from afar. He's proven he can be successful in the NFL," Pettine said. Hoyer is coming off ACL surgery and the Browns will add competition -- very possibly with the No. 4 overall pick. But for now, he's firmly on top of the depth chart.

Robert Woods caught 6-of-7 targets for 108 yards against the 49ers in Week 3.

He led the Rams receivers in snaps for the first two games and he was even out there in one-wide sets near the goal line tonight. As impressive as this line is after a one-catch Week 2, the Rams do look to be involving Sammy Watkins more and running the rock will be essential to their success, so Woods will have tough time matching this output most weeks. Unless Watkins does have a concussion and needs to miss time, Woods isn't really a great fantasy pickup after this one.

Carlos Hyde rushed 25 times for 84 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams in a Week 3 loss, adding three catches for 10 yards.

He suffered a left hip injury in the first quarter and returned in the second quarter after some heat treatment. Hyde was able to score his first TD of the season with the 49ers running in four consecutive times on a goal-to-go situation, and his second TD came on another big fourth down in the fourth quarter. Additionally, coach Kyle Shanahan does appear to have plans of using Hyde as a pass catcher all season. He'll get a few extra days off to heal his hip, so his fantasy owners should plan on locking him in for Week 4 against the Cardinals.

Pierre Garcon caught 7-of-10 targets for 142 yards against the Rams in a Week 3 loss.

After just three catches in Week 2, Brian Hoyer went to his guy on passes at all depths, including a 59-yard deep ball down the sideline. Garcon is one of the most sure-handed guys in the league with just one drop on his 79 catches last year, so it looks like he's gained the trust of his coaches and quarterback. While he gets a tougher matchup against the Cardinals in Week 4, he should still be viewed as a strong option in PPR leagues and looks to be trending up after a slow start.

Carlos Hyde (hip) returned to the Week 3 game against the Rams in the second quarter.

After the first quarter injury and being called questionable, he got some heat treatment on his left hip and kept his helmet on for most of his time on the sideline. For now, it looks like Hyde should be OK. If he's limited, Matt Breida would pick up some extra work. We'll let you know how Hyde looks the rest of the way.

Jimmy Graham (ankle) did not practice on Thursday.

That makes it two missed practices in a row and he's shaping up to be very questionable for Week 3 against the Titans. The Seahawks have listed him on the injury report with an ankle injury, but the team did say he banged his knee in Week 2. If Graham can't play, Luke Wilson and Nick Vannett would likely fill in while the Seahawks run with more three-wide sets.

Melvin Gordon was added to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with a knee issue.

Not what you want to see, but there's a strong chance it's simply the Chargers playing it safe with a back who has a history of knee issues. At this point, there's zero reason to believe Gordon won't be out there against the Chiefs on Sunday.
Sep 21 - 6:53 PM

Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Thomas is ready to rock for Sunday's trip to Buffalo. He's camped out on the WR1/2 borderline.
Sep 21 - 6:20 PM

Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

The Bears haven't spoken much on Howard's status, but the back-to-back limited sessions suggest he will suit up against the Steelers. At less than 100 percent with Tarik Cohen monopolizing passing-game work, Howard will be an RB3 if he manages to play against the Steelers' tough defense.

Patriots RCB Malcolm Butler is unsure if he will start in Week 3.

Butler came off the bench in Week 2, but ended up playing 49-of-65 snaps. Coach Bill Belichick has made it clear he hasn't been happy with Butler's play. He had a rough Week 1 in the Chiefs' beatdown of the Pats, but was better against the Saints. Eagles castoff Eric Rowe is the Pats' No. 3 corner.
Sep 21 - 5:28 PM

J.J. Nelson was limited with a hamstring injury in Thursday's practice.

It's a new injury for Nelson, though the "limited" practice suggests it's not serious. He has an extra day to get healthy with the Cardinals playing on Monday Night Football. Any sort of hamstring issue is still not something you want to see for a burner such as Nelson. His status will be updated on Friday.

A study of deceased ex-Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez's brain revealed a case of Stage 3 CTE.

Stage 3 CTE is associated with "cognitive impairment and trouble with executive functions like planning and organizing." Hernandez was one of the youngest ex-players to be diagnosed with the brain disorder, which is the result of repeated head trauma. Serving a life sentence for murder, Hernandez committed suicide in April.
