The Miami Herald suggests Mike Pouncey (hip) could be moved to guard.

Pouncey practiced on a limited basis this week, but is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game. He's a candidate to move to right guard over Dallas Thomas when healthy, which would give Miami its best offensive line combination. Pouncey is on track to return in Week 4.

CSN Bay Area reports 49ers TE Derek Carrier is expected to start in Week 3 against the Cardinals.

Vernon Davis (ankle) and Vance McDonald (knee) remain questionable, but seem likely to be held out after the 49ers promoted TE Asante Cleveland from the practice squad. Carrier had 41 yards on three catches filling in last week and is worth a look as a streaming option.
Sep 20 - 6:57 PM

Chargers RB Branden Oliver will be active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Oliver will be the No. 3 back behind Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown. He earned a spot on the 53-man roster over sixth-rounder Marion Grice after averaging 4.6 YPC during the preseason. Oliver will make his debut this week, but is unlikely to factor much into the Chargers' backfield rotation.
Sep 20 - 6:40 PM

Vikings WLB Chad Greenway (questionable, hand) is a game-time decision for Week 3.

Greenway suffered a broken hand against the Patriots last week, but was able get in a limited practice on Friday. The Vikings are hoping that he can play though the injury. Greenway should remain in an every-down role if active.
Sep 20 - 6:13 PM

Carlos Rogers (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Rogers was limited in practice this week with a knee strain. He's expected to be available against New England, but will be at less than full health. Rogers will match up with Danny Amendola in the slot.
Sep 20 - 6:02 PM

Chris Johnson (ankle) is probable for Monday night's Week 3 game against the Bears.

Johnson missed a few practice reps this week, but will be ready to roll in a favorable matchup. Unfortunately for Johnson, he's clearly the less talented back between he and Chris Ivory. But the Jets continue to give Johnson more touches. We prefer Ivory in fantasy. Johnson is barely on the FLEX radar this week.
Sep 20 - 5:48 PM

Antonio Gates (hamstring) is probable for Week 3.

Gates will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with Buffalo. He's Rotoworld's No. 9 tight end this week.
Sep 20 - 5:33 PM

A.Q. Shipley will start at center in Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Shipley has graded out as a top-ten center by Pro Football Focus through two games. He'll remain the starter even with Khaled Holmes (probable, ankle) healthy enough to return.
Sep 20 - 5:19 PM

Lions released WR Kevin Ogletree.

The move clears space for CB Mohammed Seisay on the 53-man roster. Ogletree's release means Ryan Broyles could be active this week.
Sep 20 - 5:07 PM

49ers signed TE Asante Cleveland from their practice squad.

It likely means that one of Vernon Davis (ankle) or Vance McDonald (knee) isn't going to play this week. Derek Carrier had 41 yards on three catches filling in for McDonald last week and is in line for significant playing time.
Sep 20 - 4:35 PM

49ers waived QB Josh Johnson.

Blaine Gabbert is now the 49ers' only quarterback behind Colin Kaepernick. UDFA TE Asante Cleveland was promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move.
Sep 20 - 4:30 PM

Chargers placed OLB Melvin Ingram (hip) on injured reserve/designated for return.

Ingram won't be able to practice for a minimum of six weeks, and isn't eligible to return until Week 11. It's a major downgrade to the Chargers' pass rush, as Ingram already had a sack and eight quarterback hurries through two games. A combination of Jerry Attaochu and Tourek Williams will replace Ingram opposite Dwight Freeney. Ingram missed 12 games last year with a torn ACL, and will now be sidelined at least seven games this season.
Sep 20 - 4:12 PM

Jerricho Cotchery (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Week 3.

Cotchery didn't practice on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Jason Avant (thigh) is also questionable to play in Sunday night's game against the Steelers, leaving Kelvin Benjamin as a lock for 10-plus targets. Brenton Bersin could see time opposite Benjamin, with Philly Brown playing in three-wide sets.
Sep 20 - 4:08 PM

The Baltimore Sun suggests Saturday's signing of RB Fitzgerald Toussaint points to the Ravens "potentially having concerns about their depth in the backfield" with Bernard Pierce nursing a thigh injury.

We tentatively expect Pierce to play after he practiced fully on Friday, but he is still listed as questionable, and the Toussaint move was an eyebrow raiser. If Pierce were inactive or aggravated the injury early Sunday against the Browns, the Ravens would figure to give Justin Forsett lead back work with rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro handling increased playing time off the bench.
Sep 20 - 3:54 PM

Matt Schaub has been ruled out for Week 3.

Schaub's absence is "not injury related." Matt McGloin will back up Derek Carr against New England.
