Suspended WR Josh Gordon's appeal meeting with hearing officer Harold Henderson lasted almost ten hours Friday and will resume Monday in New York.

Henderson "shut it down" for the night after the sides met from 9:30AM until 7PM Friday. Henderson could theoretically reduce Gordon's one-year suspension, but such reductions are rare because "it's an appeal and it's meant to be rejected or confirmed." Currently trying the same "second-hand smoke" defense Gordon is now employing, Ravens S Will Hill lost his appeal of a six-game ban for violating the substance abuse policy earlier this offseason. Still, the Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the fact that Friday's hearing lasted so long, and will continue Monday "would seem to indicate that Gordon has at least a chance for something other than the minimum one-year ban."

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.

Darren Sproles suffered a torn ACL in addition to a broken arm Week 3 against the Giants.

Sproles likely would have returned this season if just for the broken arm, but the ACL tear means his 2017 is finished. With the veteran considering retirement, it is possible this injury also ends his career, which would be a terrible way for one of the league's best playmakers to go out. With Sproles done for the year, LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement should form a timeshare in the backfield. Blount is the best bet for touchdowns from that group, but Smallwood is best suited to take on Sproles' former role. Smallwood needs to be added in all leagues.

C.J. Anderson played 49-of-70 snaps Week 3 against the Bills.

Jamaal Charles played 21 snaps. It is an almost identical snap split as the first two weeks. The only difference is Anderson saw 10 touches as opposed to the 20-plus he was given in the first two weeks -- Charles' has been given 10 touches in every game this season. Perhaps Charles starts to see more work after a good performance, but Anderson should remain the clear No. 1 moving forward.

Chris Thompson rushed eight times for 38 yards and caught 6-of-7 targets for 150 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 3 win over the Raiders.

Thompson was left wide open out of the backfield for a 22-yard touchdown on Washington’s opening drive. He got most of his yardage from a 74-yard screen play where nearly out ran the Raiders secondary for a second score. Thompson worked behind Samaje Perine with Rob Kelley sidelined, but continued his hot start to the season despite playing only 28 snaps. Thompson has 350 total yards and four TDs through three games. He’s a high-end FLEX for Week 4.

Kirk Cousins completed 25-of-30 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns in Washington's Week 3 win over the Raiders.

It was a highly efficient game from Cousins after shaky starts the last two weeks. His highlight was a back-shoulder fade to Josh Doctson for a 52-yard touchdown, with his other scores coming on a red-zone pass to Vernon Davis and a check down to Chris Thompson. Cousins was forced to spread it around without Jordan Reed, completing at least one pass to six different receivers. It’s a much needed breakout with Cousins facing pressure in a walk year. Cousins has another primetime matchup with the Chiefs in Week 4.

Michael Crabtree suffered a chest injury in Week 3 against the Redskins.

Crabtree took a big hit on a third down pass in the fourth quarter. X-rays were negative, but he's done for the night. Crabtree had just one catch for seven yards before exiting.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Darren Sproles suffered a broken arm Week 3 against the Giants.

Sproles will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the diagnosis, but it looks like he is going to miss several weeks. RapSheet believes he is a candidate for injured reserve. With Sproles out, LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement shared snaps against the Giants. Smallwood would figure to see the biggest boost in playing time with Sproles sidelined, but this likely will prove to be an unpredictable timeshare.

Phillip Rivers completed 20-of-40 passes for 237 yards with three interceptions Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

Rivers nearly had a fourth interception off a deflected pass in the fourth quarter, though the call was changed to an incompletion on review. Either way, it was a dismal performance from Rivers, who was picked off three times in the first half and never showed even the slightest semblance of rhythm with any of his receivers. A gunslinger if there ever was one, Rivers insisted on challenging the Chiefs with deep passes downfield, an approach that backfired spectacularly. Rivers has now thrown an incredible 21 interceptions over his last 12 games going back to last season. It will be hard to trust him even in an inviting home matchup against the Eagles next week.

Geronimo Allison caught 6-of-8 targets for 122 yards in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

With Randall Cobb (chest) out, Allison operated as the No. 3 receiver behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams. His eight targets were third on the team behind Ty Montgomery (12) and Nelson (9). Allison did have a bad drop late in the fourth quarter but more than made up for it with a tough sideline catch on the same drive and then getting loose for the big 72-yard gain in overtime on a free play that set up the winning field goal two plays later. Cobb may not be ready to return on a short week, so Allison could have some WR4/FLEX appeal Thursday night against the Bears.

Thomas Rawls was held without a touch in Seattle's Week 3 loss to the Titans.

Per Pro Football Focus' snap guru Nathan Jahnke, Rawls was on the field for one play. Eddie Lacy played zero snaps. Chris Carson was the Seahawks' feature back, with C.J. Prosise handling passing downs. We'd imagine Rawls will typically get a touch or two, but this looks to be Carson's backfield for the foreseeable future. Rawls is droppable in 10-12 team leagues.

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-9 targets for 52 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Bengals.

Green Bay's offense was stuck in the mud the entire first half, as they managed just 73 passing yards and saw Aaron Rodgers get sacked five times. But things heated up after the break, with Nelson scoring two touchdowns to bring the Packers back from a 14-point deficit. His first was a wide-open busted coverage and the second a perfectly-thrown out route where only Nelson could catch it. It came with 17 seconds left to force overtime. Nelson appeared to avoid setbacks with his quad injury and will be a shoo-in WR1 on Thursday night against the Bears.
