Jordy Nelson said Aaron Rodgers (collarbone, injured reserve) "looks like himself" in practice.

Rodgers has been running the scout team in practice this week. He is eligible to return to the active roster in Week 15, but coach Mike McCarthy said he still needs to be cleared for contact. Everything we have seen suggests that will happen, and Rodgers will be ready to face the Panthers next Sunday. He is a great stash for playoff-bound teams.

Chris Carson remains atop the Seahawks' running back depth chart for Week 3.

"Gassed" from playing special teams — really (at least according to coach Pete Carroll) — Carson did not touch the ball in the second half of Monday's dispiriting loss to the Bears. Any time Carroll opens his mouth, he signs Carson's praises, but the usage has not matched the verbiage so far this season. Carson will be a risky, low-end FLEX play for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Falcons placed LG Andy Levitre on injured reserve with a triceps injury, ending his season.

Levitre isn't as big of a loss as he would have been in the past — he took a pay cut in March — but it's still a major blow for a Falcons that's been bitten hard by the injury bug in the early going. The Falcons must now move forward with Wes Schweitzer as a starter. He was a liability in 2017. It's bad news for the Falcons' running game. Now 32, Levitre will be a free agent next offseason.

Free agent WR Jordan Matthews worked out for the Eagles on Tuesday.

The Eagles are running low on bodies at receiver, and Matthews is an #OldFriend. His addition would be mixed news for Nelson Agholor, who would maybe have to spend less time in the slot.

Bengals signed K Randy Bullock to a two-year extension through 2020.

It's a rare bit of good kicking news in what's been a dark week for the position. The Bengals' kicker since midway through 2016, Bullock has converted an elite 90 percent of his field goal attempts in the Queen City.

Giants signed FB Elijhaa Penny.

Penny was on the Cardinals' practice squad. ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan hints Penny will be taking FB Shane Smith's roster spot outright after Smith struggled against the Cowboys. Judging from how the Giants looked on Sunday night, switching fullbacks will be tantamount to re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

Vikings signed DT Tom Johnson to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Johnson can earn another $500,000 through incentives. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the Vikes are eyeing Johnson as their "top reserve" on the interior after he started 15 games a season ago. Johnson was released by the Seahawks over the weekend.

Bills coach Sean McDermott and DC Leslie Frazier are expected to "collaborate" on the team's defensive calls going forward.

McDermott took over play-calling duties midway through Sunday's blowout loss to the Chargers. Speaking Monday, he tiptoed around whether the move would be permanent. "We're going to do whatever it takes to win," McDermott said. "Sometimes you're able to get into a flow. Sometimes somebody else, you feel like, can get into a flow. That was really where it came from." A "hot hand" approach at defensive coordinator is a new one. We would consider McDermott the team's primary defensive play-caller until further notice.

NBC Sports Philadelphia reports Eagles OC Mike Groh "indicated there's a good chance" Jay Ajayi (back) sits Week 3.

We are a bit surprised by the interpretation, as Groh termed RB Josh Adams' promotion from the practice squad a "precautionary measure." It definitely sounds like Ajayi is going to miss some practice time this week. That's nothing new. We would consider Ajayi on the right side of questionable after he played through the issue against the Bucs in Week 2. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: New reports are putting Jay Ajayi's Week 3 availability in doubt. For an Eagles team already thin at WR and potentially without Ajayi and possibly Sproles again, Corey Clement could be in for a big workload against the Colts. With 85 total yards and a TD on 11 touches last week, Clement should be on your DFS cash game radar if Ajayi and Sproles sit. He's still very cheap and his involvement in the passing game helps raise his floor siginificantly on PPR sites.

Antonio Brown's agent insists his client does not want a trade and says his Monday absence was related to a "personal matter."

"I talked to the team about it," rep Drew Rosenhaus said. "His issue was unrelated to the tweet or his relationship with the team." We actually take Rosenhaus at face value that Brown does not want to be traded. His tweet was clearly just a frustrated player blowing off steam to a Twitter troll. As for Brown's Monday absence, the team has yet to say it was excused. We are not expecting any long-term consequences, but the sides' relationship is certainly looking a bit frosty right now.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Duke Johnson needs to get more touches moving forward.

Johnson has touched the ball just 11 times on offense through two games. Jackson said the running back is one of their best playmakers and needs to touch the ball more, but it is tough to trust that will happen. Johnson needs to be relegated to fantasy benches for the time being.
Sep 18 - 12:49 PM

Jarvis Landry (knee) was limited during Tuesday's practice.

Landry was also limited on Monday. It seems like the Browns are just taking it easy on Landry in a short week. It would be a surprise if he is not ready to face the Jets on Thursday night.
