Coach Mike Smith said he fully expects Steven Jackson (hamstring) to be ready for Week 1.

Jackson hasn't done much since injuring his hammy July 29. But Smith said there's a chance Jackson will play a few snaps in the preseason finale. Jackson doesn't necessarily need any exhibition work, but we'd feel more comfortable if he actually got on the field and took some handoffs. His ADP has been on the decline for weeks now. Jackson is currently going at the back of the seventh round in fantasy drafts. There's value there, but SJ39 is 31 years old and there's a real possibility his body has or will let him down permanently.

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

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 fantasy owners should already be looking elsewhere.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jets OC John Morton said the team plans to use a three-man running back committee going forward.

Rather than separating himself from the pack, Bilal Powell was out-touched by both Matt Forte and rookie Elijah McGuire while seeing just 18 snaps in last week's loss to Oakland. Mired in a three-man timeshare in one of the league's worst offenses, Powell is looking like a wasted fantasy pick.
Sep 21 - 2:16 PM

Odell Beckham (ankle) said he expects to play "a lot more" against the Eagles in Week 3.

OBJ was eased in on Monday night after missing the opener with a high-ankle sprain, but it doesn't sound like he'll have any restrictions heading into Week 3. The Giants' offense has been in a funk but Beckham remains a weekly WR1 in all formats.
Sep 21 - 2:09 PM

Jarvis Landry (knee) returned to practice on Thursday.

Beat writer Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald said Landry was "practicing some," which suggests he got in a limited session. Landry was absent from Wednesday's practice, but should be fine for Week 3 against the Jets. He pulled in a whopping 13 receptions in last week's opener, though he only averaged six yards per catch.
