Chargers CB Jason Verrett will undergo season-ending knee surgery.

He will be placed on injured reserve. It is a big blow to a secondary which could have been among the best in the league. The Chargers still have Casey Hayward to chase around No. 1 receivers, but undrafted sophomore Trevor Williams is a question on the other side, although he has played well through two weeks. Verrett has the talent to be one of the best cover men in the league, but he has now played just 25 games in four seasons including just five the last two years.

ESPN's Cameron Wolfe believes Titans WR Taywan Taylor will see a "significant increase in his role" Week 3 with Corey Davis (hamstring) sidelined.

Taylor hasn't played much this season, only recording 18 snaps through two weeks. His biggest play has been a 42-yard reception against the Jaguars. He'll have an opportunity to prove himself in Week 3 with an increased role, but it won't be easy against the Seahawks.

Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi said he was "feeling good" during Friday's practice.

"I feel like we have a good plan," Ajayi said. It looks like Ajayi will play, but how much work he will get is unknown. It seems unlikely he will get the 30 touches he had in Week 2, but he won't need a big workload to rack up fantasy points against the Jets. Ajayi should be in your lineup as long as he plays on Sunday.

Ravens restructured S Tony Jefferson's contract.

Baltimore also restructured the contract of K Justin Tucker, opening up $2.66M in cap space. Prior to this move, the Ravens' ranked 28th in the NFL in the amount of cap space.

Cardinals DC James Bettcher suggested ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) isn't a lock to return this week.

This conflicts with comments from coach Bruce Arians. Bucannon is trending toward playing after practicing on a limited basis, but he's likely going to be a game-time decision. The Cardinals are expected to put Bucannon on a snap count if active.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons is "taking the steps to make it back."

The Dolphins haven't provided much on Timmons since he went AWOL before Week 2. He can be suspended for up to four games under the CBA, but there's a good chance he'll return before that. Despite rumblings the Dolphins could move on from Timmons, his contract and Miami's lack of linebackers strongly suggests he'll be back with the team.

Seahawks CB Deshawn Shead (reserve/PUP, knee) could return in Week 7.

Coach Pete Carroll says Shead is "progressing well" in his recovery. Shead is out for at least the next four games, but has a chance to be activated when first eligible. With Jeremy Lane struggling, Shead should regain his starting role when healthy.

Rams coach Sean McVay said DB Lamarcus Joyner (hamstring) is day to day.

Joyner didn't return after going down in Thursday's win. It sounds like he's only dealing with a Grade-1 strain. Joyner has 10 days to get cleared for Week 4.
Sep 22 - 7:12 PM

Eagles FS Rodney McLeod (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

This is an injury worth tracking with Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins sidelined. McLeod looks like a game-time decision after getting in a limited practice Friday. The Eagles have a depleted secondary, leaving special teamer Chris Maragos the only other healthy safety on the roster.
Sep 22 - 7:01 PM

Torrey Smith (illness) is questionable for Week 3 against the Giants.

Smith is a late addition to the injury report. He's been dealing with flu-like symptoms, but is expected to play. Smith is likely to take a step back from last week's eight targets.

Ravens TE Maxx Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3.

This was expected after Williams missed practice all week. Nick Boyle will see a bigger role behind Ben Watson.
Sep 22 - 6:41 PM

Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against Jacksonville.

Campanaro was held without a catch playing through a questionable tag last week. There was speculation he could replace Danny Woodhead's role in the short pass game, but Campanaro should remain limited to low snap totals in four-wide sets.
Sep 22 - 6:35 PM

Free agent Lamarr Houston worked out for the Patriots.

Houston has been making the rounds after visiting the Saints this week. Released from Chicago with an injury settlement in early September, Houston should be close to fully recovered from his knee issues. The Patriots have a 4-3 based scheme, but may view Houston as a fit in the old Rob Ninkovich role.

Will Tye - TE - Jets

Jets TE Will Tye (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

It leaves Austin Seferian-Jenkins as the only healthy tight end with Jordan Leggett (doubtful, knee) and Eric Tomlinson (elbow) sidelined. Tye should play, but his status is going to lead to a larger workload for ASJ in his first game back.
Sep 22 - 6:04 PM

Ezekiel Elliott’s hearing with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled for October 2.

It means Elliott is eligible to play at least the next two weeks. Elliott’s six-game suspension could kick in as soon as Week 5, depending on if the Fifth Circuit rules against his injunction. It's more legal drama that further muddles Zeke's status. Coming off a career-worst game at Denver, Elliott's rest-of-season outlook is trending down.
