Bucs selected Wyoming WR Robert Herron with the No. 185 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Herron (5-foot-8 7/8, 193) is built more like a slot receiver but ran a lot of deep routes for the Cowboys, compiling 152 career catches for 2,030 yards (13.4 YPR) and 20 touchdowns. An early-career tailback, Herron is a physical, tough-to-jam wideout with 4.48 wheels and an explosive 10-foot-5 broad jump. Herron is likely to focus on the slot in the pros, and has the makeup to excel there with sure hands and aggressive run-after-catch ability. We don't like this landing spot from a fantasy standpoint, but Herron will have a chance to contribute quickly in Tampa Bay's thin receiver corps.

Jay Ajayi (knee) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

Coach Adam Gase has essentially already guaranteed Ajayi will play, but it would be nice to see him return to a "limited" session on Friday. Headed for a gorgeous matchup with the Jets, Ajayi will be an elite RB1 if he suits up.

DeVante Parker (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice.

It's a downgrade from Wednesday, when Parker was "limited." Coach Adam Gase hasn't expressed much concern about Parker's status, but mid-week downgrades are never good news. It could mean Parker's ankle didn't respond well to Wednesday's practice. Parker's Friday status will be key. Fantasy owners should consider Parker genuinely questionable, and begin plotting a back-up plan.

DeMarco Murray (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Murray was "inside on the treadmill." Two missed practices for a workhorse 29-year-old back do not guarantee he will sit — Murray is the kind of player who can suit up without practicing — but things certainly aren't looking good. Even if Murray does play, Derrick Henry seems likely to take the lead against the Seahawks.

Speaking Thursday, Kenny Britt said he had a "man-to-man" conversation with coach Hue Jackson about "stepping up."

Britt said Jackson has asked him to bring more energy "on- and off-the-field." Jackson acknowledged challenging the 29-year-old wideout, who has displayed embarrassing effort through his first two games as a Brown. Loafing, Britt has totaled two catches for 15 yards. He's seemed content to let Rashard Higgins, who was on the practice squad as recently as last week, take over as the Browns' No. 1 receiver. Britt has already reached now-or-never time with his new club.

Coach Ron Rivera said Carolina's backfield work will be determined by "flow of the game" and who is playing well.

Fantasy owners who used an early-round pick on Christian McCaffrey can't be too thrilled by this development. Essentially the Panthers are going with a hot-hand approach, which means McCaffrey's role is going to be different each week. For all his promise, McCaffrey has been out-touched by veteran Jonathan Stewart 35-30 in the early going. McCaffrey's day will eventually come, but it could be a while before he overtakes Stewart.

ESPN Bengals reporter Katherine Terrell expects Tyler Eifert (back, knee) to miss Week 3 against the Packers.

Eifert didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday and wasn't even seen on the rehab field. The Bengals will make an official ruling on his status after Friday's walkthrough, though Eifert's absence already seems like a foregone conclusion. Expect Tyler Kroft to start in his place.
Sep 21 - 2:48 PM

Jordan Reed (chest, toe) was officially "limited" in Thursday's practice.

"The pain is becoming manageable," coach Jay Gruden said afterward. "We'll see how he does tomorrow." Gruden's comments come one day after he said Reed was "not healthy right now." The tea leaves suggest Reed will gut out his multiple injuries against the Raiders. His effectiveness will be anyone's guess.
Sep 21 - 2:47 PM

Markus Wheaton (finger) has been removed from the Bears' Week 3 injury report.

Wheaton will make his 2017 debut against the Steelers, and should immediately slide in as the Bears' No. 2 receiver against his old team. In theory, there will be targets aplenty, but Wheaton offers little upside with Mike Glennon under center.
Sep 21 - 2:45 PM

John Brown (quad) wasn't seen at the open portion of Thursday's practice.

Brown sat out last week's game with a quad injury and has shown few, if any, signs of progress. He's a long shot for Monday night's game versus Dallas. Larry Fitzgerald, J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown will continue to operate as the Cardinals' top wideouts.
Sep 21 - 2:35 PM

Broncos LT Garett Bolles (ankle) resumed practicing on Thursday.

Bolles was carted off against the Cowboys, but escaped with only a bruise. He was still expected to miss Sunday's game against the Bills. He likely will, but this gives him an outside shot at suiting up. The Broncos' badly undermanned line has almost zero depth behind Bolles at tackle.
Sep 21 - 2:30 PM

Bengals WR John Ross (knee) was held out of Thursday's practice.

Ross' knee was the issue that held him out in Week 1, but he was listed as "limited" on Wednesday with an illness. Today he was DNP with the troublesome knee. The Bengals could just be managing Ross' reps, but it's also possible he suffered a setback. Even if Ross does suit up against the Pack, he will be nothing more than a dart throw WR5.
