ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan reports Orleans Darkwa's back injury is "nothing major."

Darkwa has an extensive injury history, so avoiding a serious issue is good news. Darkwa carried the ball seven times against the Eagles, managing 22 yards. It's not pretty, but Darkwa has been the Giants' best runner.

Brice Butler (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

He's good to go as the No. 4 receiver as a deep threat but isn't a fantasy factor.
Sep 25 - 7:21 PM

Terrance Williams (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

Brice Butler (ankle) is also active for Dallas. Inactive for the Cowboys are QB Cooper Rush, RB Darren McFadden, CB Nolan Carroll, CB Chidobe Awuzie, LB Anthony Hitchens, OG Jonathan Cooper, and DE Charles Tapper.
Sep 25 - 7:19 PM

Cardinals declared LG Mike Iupati, LT D.J. Humphries, ILB Deone Bucannon, QB Blaine Gabbert, WR John Brown, RB D.J. Foster, and DT Xavier Williams inactive for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

John Wetzel and Alex Boone will get the starts at left tackle and left guard, respectively. Bucannon isn't ready to come back from an ankle injury. Brown remains week to week with his quad strain. J.J. Nelson will be the No. 2 WR.
Sep 25 - 7:16 PM

Jermaine Gresham (ribs) is active for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Gresham missed Week 2 but is back in action. He's not a great fantasy option.
Sep 25 - 7:14 PM

J.J. Nelson (hamstring) is active for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Jermaine Gresham (ribs) is also active. Nelson was limited all week in practice but is ready to roll as the No. 2 receiver with John Brown (quad) still out.

Speaking Monday, coach Jack Del Rio said Amari Cooper has "got to find a way" to fix his issue with drops.

Drops are wildly overrated in the NFL, but sometimes they become very hard to ignore. Cooper has already been charged with six drops through three games, which is three more than any other receiver charted at Pro Football Focus. Cooper dropped four balls in the opener and has dropped one in each of the past two games. He has just 101 yards through three games and dropped only five balls all of last season. Cooper gets a tough matchup next week against Denver.

Coach Pete Carroll provided little update on Doug Baldwin (groin) Monday, saying the severity of the strain remains unclear.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the groin strain isn't believed to be serious, but Carroll and the team are still waiting for tests to come back. Baldwin was having a huge game against the Titans with a 10-105-1 line before leaving in the second half. Baldwin has a little extra time to get ready for Week 4, as the Seahawks host the Colts on Sunday night. We'll have plenty of updates.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tyler Eifert will miss "multiple weeks" with a back injury.

The good news is he does not need surgery. The bad news is Eifert's back is acting up again after an injury cost him Weeks 16-17 last season, then he underwent surgery after the year. Tyler Kroft will take over as the Bengals' starting tight end. Eifert looks droppable in 12-team fantasy leagues.

Ty Montgomery (wrist) was listed as a limited participant at Packers practice on Monday.

The Packers didn't actually practice, but they filed an estimated participation report. There have been no indications Montgomery is in danger of sitting out Thursday night's game against the Bears.
Sep 25 - 4:54 PM

Randall Cobb (chest) was listed as a limited participant on the Packers' practice report Monday.

The Packers didn't actually hold a practice, but teams playing on Thursday nights are required to release participation reports based on estimations. Cobb did not practice at all last week, so it sounds like he's beginning to make progress. Still, it's possible the Packers hold him out one more week based on how winnable Thursday's game should be at Lambeau Field against the 1-2 Bears.
Sep 25 - 4:52 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 4 at Seattle.

NFL Network reported on Sunday morning that Luck is targeting Week 6 for his return. On Monday, coach Chuck Pagano suggested Luck could resume practicing this week, but stopped short of full-on predicting it. Jacoby Brissett played well in Weeks 2-3 against the Cardinals and Browns, but he's entering a trouble spot at CenturyLink Field. Seattle's D/ST should be a popular Week 4 play.
Sep 25 - 4:47 PM

Colts RCB Vontae Davis (groin) is expected to make his season debut on Sunday Night Football against the Seahawks.

There are no guarantees Davis will be effective, however, after he struggled mightily trying to play through a groin injury for multiple weeks last season. As Doug Baldwin is primarily a slot receiver and Davis patrols the boundary, it's likely Paul Richardson will end up in Davis' coverage the most in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 4:46 PM

Packers signed OT Ulrick John off the Cardinals' practice squad.

The move adds depth with LT David Bakhtiari and RT Bryan Bulaga still ailing. The Packers are also recently lost swing OT Jason Spriggs to I.R. and are reeling with offensive tackle injuries ahead of Thursday's date with the Bears.
Sep 25 - 4:39 PM

Melvin Gordon reportedly has a "minor" bone bruise on his knee.

Gordon played a season-low 42 percent of the Chargers' Week 3 offensive snaps due to this injury. Gordon apparently suffered the injury in practice last week. Gordon's Week 4 status against the Eagles is uncertain. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Gordon "wanted to go back in" to last week's loss to Kansas City.
