Speaking Thursday, Bears RG Kyle Long said the coaching staff has "taken the training wheels off" of Mitchell Trubisky.

"My little boy is becoming a man," Long said. "Mitch -- they've taken the training wheels off of Mitch's little bike. So he's going to be able to do some things creatively and get to showcase his skills. We're excited to see him. He's a tremendous leader and somebody the guys look up to in the locker room." Ex-coach John Fox predictably shackled Trubisky as a rookie, only letting him go as far as game manager-type, but the new staff led by innovative minds, coach Matt Nagy and OC Mark Helfrich, plan to unleash their young passer. Trubisky flashed as a rookie and is a dark horse candidate to make a significant second-year leap.

Aqib Talib is heading to the locker room with an ankle injury sustained against the Chargers.

Talib was rolled up on, and he limped over to the sideline. The Rams medical staff took a look at him on the bench, but then directed him to the locker room for further evaluation. According to the broadcast, Talib is potentially getting x-rays. This could be a nightmare situation for the Rams, as star corner Marcus Peters was carted to the locker room earlier in the game.

Calvin Ridley corralled seven-of-eight targets for 146 yards and three touchdowns while gaining nine yards on his lone carry Sunday in the Falcons’ Week 3 loss to the Saints.

This won’t happen every week, but on Sunday, Ridley was the better of Atlanta’s two Alabama receivers. Ridley went absolutely hog-wild in the first half, cruising to 129 yards and two touchdowns including a 75-yard jailbreak in the second quarter. The rookie embarrassed P.J. Williams to such an extent that he was actually benched for Ken Crawley for a portion of the second half. In addition to his three touchdowns (the same number teammate Julio Jones had all of last season), Ridley also drew a pass interference flag that moved the Falcons up 45 yards in the third quarter. After seeing just two looks from Matt Ryan in the opener, the 23-year-old has been the recipient of 13 targets over his last two outings. He’ll be an acceptable WR3/flex option against the Bengals next week and needs to be picked up in all formats.

Matt Ryan completed 26-of-35 passes for five touchdowns while adding 12 rushing yards on four carries Sunday in Atlanta’s Week 3 loss to the Saints.

He took three sacks for a loss of 15 yards. Halloween isn’t for another month but Ryan was handing out touchdowns like candy on Sunday, dropping dimes all over the gridiron. Three of his touchdowns went to rookie Calvin Ridley, who broke out for 146 yards on seven catches. Matty Ice probably should have had a sixth touchdown but slightly underthrew Julio Jones on what ended up being a 58-yard catch. As dominant as he was, Ryan’s afternoon ended on a low note when the Falcons last drive stalled out late in the fourth quarter, forcing a punt with 16 seconds left. That would be the last time Atlanta touched the football as New Orleans walked it off on a Drew Brees touchdown in overtime. Ryan has redeemed himself since his meltdown against the Eagles in Week 1 and is once again safe to pencil in as an every-week QB1. He’ll get the Bengals at home in Week 4.

Michael Thomas pulled in all 10 of his targets for 129 receiving yards Sunday in the Saints’ Week 3 victory over Atlanta.

Thomas set the tone with a 35-yard gain on the Saints’ first play from scrimmage. He never managed to find the end zone but was always there when Drew Brees needed him. Thomas played a pivotal role in overtime, moving the chains with three catches for 38 yards on the game-clinching drive. Sunday’s 10-spot gives Thomas 38 catches for the year, an NFL record through the first three games. He’s also been incredibly efficient, absorbing an impossible 95 percent of his targets this year. Even with Janoris Jenkins likely to shadow him in Week 4, the red-hot Thomas will remain an appealing WR1 against the Giants.
Sep 23 - 6:11 PM

Alvin Kamara totaled 66 yards on 16 carries while corralling 15-of-20 targets for an additional 124 yards Sunday in the Saints’ Week 3 victory over the Falcons.

Kamara had a busy opening drive, surging to 36 yards on four touches with 17 coming on his first carry. That would be a sign of things to come as the reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year was a focal point of the Saints’ offense all afternoon. The only thing missing was a touchdown. Kamara was stuffed on third-and-goal from the half-yard line in the fourth quarter and was vultured by fullback Zach Line, who caught a one-yard touchdown on the next play. He tortured fantasy owners again in overtime by having a walk-off touchdown overturned on replay. Predictably, Drew Brees punched it on the next play. Kamara has averaged a slightly underwhelming 3.81 yards per carry this year, but his weekly touchdown upside and monster workload in the passing game will continue to keep him in the RB1 conversation. Look for him to put up another silly stat line next week against the Giants.

Drew Brees completed 39-of-49 passes for 396 yards and three touchdowns while also adding three carries for seven yards and another two touchdowns Sunday in New Orleans’ Week 3 win over the Falcons.

He lost five yards on his lone sack. Brees got off to a blistering start, completing all four of his passes for 55 yards and a touchdown to Ted Ginn on the opening drive. He never took his foot off the gas, connecting on all 10 of his throws to Michael Thomas while also completing an exhausting 15 passes to running back Alvin Kamara. As he often does, Brees saved his best for last. The 39-year-old tied the game on a rare rushing touchdown, beating two defenders on a spin move for a seven-yard score with 1:15 left in the fourth quarter. He sealed the game in overtime with another rushing TD, leaping over the pile on a QB keeper. Brees passed Brett Favre Sunday to become the NFL’s all-time completion leader. He should keep the train rolling next week against a burnable Giants secondary.

C.J. Beathard replaced Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

Beathard did not officially record a stat, but he threw a beautiful pass to George Kittle in the end zone which was negated by a spurious offensive pass interference call. With Garoppolo likely looking at an ACL tear, Beathard is in line to take over the 49ers' starting job. He averaged 237 yards with three touchdowns and five interceptions in five starts last season.
Sep 23 - 5:35 PM

A.J. Green (groin) expects to play in Week 4.

Green went down on the first drive of the second half and never made it back. The Bengals initially listed him as probable to return before downgrading him. Green's practice reps figure to be limited this week, but this doesn't look like anything that will keep him out.
Sep 23 - 5:34 PM

Updating a previous item, Marcus Peters has been ruled out for the rest of the game after suffering a calf injury.

There have been conflicting reports on what body part is injured, but Adam Schefter is reporting a calf injury. Regardless, Peters was unable to put any weight on his leg as he was helped off the field by trainers. PFF's No. 8 graded corner was then carted to the locker room for further evaluation. This certainly could be a multi-week absence for the star corner.

Chris Ivory rushed 20 times for 56 yards and hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 70 yards in the Bills’ Week 3 win over the Vikings.

Game flow worked perfectly for Ivory, who was able to rumble his way to 20 carries while the Bills milked a 27-0 first half lead. The three catches (and 70 receiving yards) were unexpected, but it was just another thing that happened to go right in a day chalked with them for Buffalo on Sunday. At worst, Ivory set himself apart from third-down RB Marcus Murphy (8-33) and made his case as a potential FLEX option if LeSean McCoy (ribs) misses an extended period. Ivory remains volume-driven, though.

Marcus Peters (lower leg) was helped off the field by trainers during Sunday's game against the Chargers.

This doesn't look good, as Peters was unable to put any weight onto his right leg. According to the broadcast, the Rams training staff is looking at his foot, calf, and achilles. The star corner is now being evaluated in the locker room and he's questionable -- at best -- to return to the game.
