The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports Devonta Freeman (knee) is not expected to play Week 2 against the Panthers.

Ledbetter expects rookie Ito Smith to be Tevin Coleman's backup. Freeman hasn't practiced at all this week after injuring his knee in last Thursday night's opener against Philly. It's not believed to be serious, but it's obviously enough to potentially cost him games. Coleman will be an upside RB2 play.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Freeman missing Friday's practice and reports of him not expected to play this week, Tevin Coleman immediately becomes one of this week's top value plays in DFS. As a home favorite against the Panthers, he should have plenty of work grinding out a lead or racking up catches if the Falcons fall behind. For his cheap price on all DFS sites he should be strongly considered for cash games and definitely be used in some tournaments.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Bengals are considering bringing back ex-Browns coach Hue Jackson to rejoin coach Marvin Lewis' staff.

That's the word around town, and Lewis didn't shoot it down on Monday. Jackson was on Lewis' staff in Cincinnati from 2004-06 as WRs coach and again from 2012-15 in various roles before landing the Browns' gig. Lewis wants to focus more on the defense in the second half of the season, and Jackson could help OC Bill Lazor out on that side of the ball. We're not sure how much "help" Jackson would ultimately provide, but he and Lewis are longtime friends. That trumps all.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien was entirely noncommittal on Monday when asked if D'Onta Foreman (Achilles/PUP) will play this year.

"He had a good year last year, but that was a long time ago," said O'Brien. "Let's just see where he's at." Should the Texans bring Foreman off PUP, they would then have 21 days to decide whether to activate him to the 53-man roster. Foreman tore his Achilles' last November 19 and will be a full year removed from the injury next Monday. He's not worth stashing beyond Dynasty leagues.

Falcons activated MLB Deion Jones (foot) from injured reserve/designated for return.

And he'll be put to work immediately in Week 11 versus the run-first Cowboys. Jones has been out since Week 1 with a foot fracture that required surgery. When healthy, Jones is one of the highest-impact linebackers in the league as both a run stopper and coverage specialist against tight ends and running backs.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Chris Carson (hip) will play on Thursday Night Football against Green Bay.

Thus, Seattle plans on having Carson, Mike Davis, and Rashaad Penny ready to roll against Green Bay, creating a muddy backfield picture. Carroll was noncommittal on each back's role, emphasizing that all three runners can't get the ball frequently in the same game when everyone is available. Carroll, Davis, and Penny will all be high-risk flex options in Thursday night's game.

DeVante Parker is "week to week" with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

"Week to week" typically means a player will miss the forthcoming game, then be evaluated on a day-by-day basis thereafter. The good news Miami has a Week 11 bye. Parker should have a great chance to return for Week 12.
Nov 12 - 4:41 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the outlook for Julian Edelman (foot) is "positive," and New England's slot receiver "is not expected to miss much, if any time."

It's not surprising. Edelman did enter last week's game managing a foot/ankle issue, but his injury did not appear significant on the field. Edelman left in the fourth quarter with the game already out of hand. The Patriots are now on their Week 11 bye. We fully expect to see Edelman starting in Week 12.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh would not disclose his Week 11 starting quarterback at Monday's press conference.

Harbaugh said he is "hopeful" Joe Flacco (hip) will be healthy enough to start. "He's getting treatment," said Harbaugh. "We'll see. We'll know more as the week goes on." Flacco was on crutches during Baltimore's Week 10 bye, which is generally not a good sign. The Ravens may try to keep their Week 11 quarterback a secret ahead of a must-win game against Cincinnati.

The Broncos expect Royce Freeman (ankle) back for Week 11 against the Chargers.

Dealing with a high ankle sprain, Freeman has been out since Week 7. He will return to a committee alongside Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker. Freeman was a touchdown-or-bust flex option early in the season, and we wouldn't expect that to change in the back half. Lindsay has outplayed him all year.
Nov 12 - 3:52 PM

Panthers released RB C.J. Anderson.

Anderson failed to carve out a role behind breakout workhorse back Christian McCaffrey and at times resembled old Panthers FB Mike Tolbert on the field rather than a svelte tailback. Cameron Artis-Payne is CMC's new top backup.
Nov 12 - 3:47 PM

Jaguars C Brandon Linder (knee) is out for the season.

He'll have surgery. The injury compounds Jacksonville's previous losses of multiple left tackles, robbing them of 2-of-5 starting offensive linemen. Linder was having a terrific season, grading out as a top-five center in PFF's grades.
Nov 12 - 3:43 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (knee) has been diagnosed with an LCL injury and also requires hamstring surgery.

He will miss the remainder of the season. The injury is to Perryman's left knee. The good news is that Perryman is expected to be back to 100 percent in 3-4 months. Still only 25, Perryman will be a free agent at season's end. Playing roughly 66 percent of the Bolts' snaps, Perryman will be a big loss down the stretch. Perryman has been effective in stretches but has long dealt with injury issues.
