Coach Jay Gruden said DeSean Jackson "needs to be close to 100 percent" to play in Week 3 against the Eagles.

"He's gonna be a game-day type deal," Gruden said. "He wants to go really bad, obviously he's going back to Philly. But if he's not 100 percent, he's really not that good to us." Jackson is clearly not fully over his shoulder injury, but was able to practice on a limited basis Friday. He'll be reevaluated on Sunday during pre-game warmups. Jackson will be a boom-or-bust WR3 if active this week.

Tajh Boyd has signed with the Florida Blacktips of the Fall Experimental Football League.

A sixth-round pick of the Jets, Boyd couldn't beat out Matt Simms for the No. 3 quarterback job and was released during final cuts. He'll look to continue his career after failing to get any practice squad offers. Boyd could eventually resurface on a reserve/futures contract.

Saints WR Joe Morgan (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Morgan returned to practice Friday and is expected to play this week. He should see playing time in four-wide sets.
Sep 20 - 8:34 PM

Hakeem Nicks (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3.

Nicks will likely come down to a game-time decision after missing practice the last two days. Even if he plays, Nicks is no more than a WR4 for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Sep 20 - 8:17 PM

Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Escobar practiced on a limited basis throughout the week and is expected to be available for Sunday's matchup with the Rams. He has just one catch on two targets through two games.
Sep 20 - 8:04 PM

Bears WR Josh Morgan (groin) is listed as probable for Week 3.

Morgan will return after missing last week's game. He'll be the No. 4 receiver behind Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and Santonio Holmes.
Sep 20 - 7:31 PM

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

Pouncey practiced on a limited basis this week, but is not going to play in Sunday's game. He's a candidate to move to right guard 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 return kickoffs, but should see limited snaps on offense.
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 effective 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 a spot for CB Mohammed Seisay on the 53-man roster. Ogletree's release means Ryan Broyles could be active this week.
