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 (ankle) healthy enough to play this week.
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 Davis 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. The 49ers signed UDFA TE Asante Cleveland from their 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.
Sep 20 - 3:46 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (quad, ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Bears.

Milliner missed practice again on Saturday, and could be looking at a multi-week setback. He's not going to play against the Bears. With the Jets playing on Monday night, Milliner isn't a lock to return in Week 4.
Sep 20 - 3:39 PM

Ravens signed RB Fitzgerald Toussaint from their practice squad.

It's a sign that Bernard Pierce (questionable, thigh) could be held out this week. If active, Toussaint will provide depth behind Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro.
Sep 20 - 3:29 PM

Ravens waived WR Deonte Thompson.

Thompson didn't play in the first two games, and wasn't used on punt returns over Jacoby Jones. The Ravens promoted RB Fitzgerald Toussaint from the practice squad in a corresponding move.
Sep 20 - 3:26 PM

Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

Burfict is still in the concussion protocol and isn't going to play this week. Vincent Rey will replace him in the lineup against Tennessee.
Sep 20 - 3:17 PM

Darren McFadden is expected to receive a heavy workload even if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand surgery) is active for Week 3.

McFadden was an every-down back last week, and will remain Oakland's starter. He's going to get the majority of carries over Jones-Drew and Latavius Murray, but isn't more than a low-end RB3/FLEX against the Jets' run defense. McFadden had just 37 yards on 12 carries in Week 2.
Sep 20 - 3:07 PM

Eric Decker (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday night's Week 3 game against the Bears.

Decker was able to get in a limited practice on Saturday, and coach Rex Ryan is confident he'll be available this week. His status is shaping up as a game-time decision, and may not be known until Monday night. Decker should be considered a high-risk WR3. Jeremy Kerley would likely lead the Jets in targets if Decker is held out.
