Bengals signed DL Adolphus Washington from the Cowboys' practice squad.

A third-round pick by the Bills in 2016, Washington was waived by Buffalo earlier this month following a lackluster start to his career. The Bengals needed depth after Ryan Glasgow suffered a season-ending knee injury on Sunday.

Raiders K Mike Nugent is expected to miss time because of a hip injury.

Nugent presumably suffered the injury against the Dolphins, but he kicked a field goal with just 25 seconds left in the game and attempted the ensuing onside kick. Nugent could find his way to injured reserve even if this is a short-term injury. The Raiders are working out multiple kickers on Tuesday.

NFL Network's Judy Battista reports several members of the Competition Committee are "uncomfortable with the roughing the passer calls" early in the season.

Battista references the Clay Mathews call from the Vikings game as a specific example, but there have been several instances of questionable at best roughing calls already this season. The rule is also under the microscope after Dolphins DE William Hayes suffered a torn ACL attempting to avoid a roughing call in Week 3. The Committee has a call scheduled for next week, but Battista reports it is unclear if anything will change this season.

Texans placed LB Dylan Cole on injured reserve with a wrist injury.

Cole reportedly played three quarters with a dislocated wrist on Sunday, but the injury will still send him to injured reserve. The rotational linebacker's absence will be felt most on special teams.

Jerry Jones said Jason Garrett will not take over play-calling duties from OC Scott Linehan.

Dallas' offense has been putrid since the halfway point of last season, and they have shown no signs of improvement so far this year. Even so, Jones said "there have not been any discussions or plans" to make a change at play caller. It looks like Garrett will have to use the power of the clap to get things turned around.

Jerry Jones expects LB Sean Lee (hamstring) to "miss some play time."

Already dealing with a hamstring injury in one leg, Lee picked up a similar issue in the other leg against the Seahawks on Sunday. The Athletic's Calvin Watkins reports Lee will be sidelined two-to-four games.

Texans promoted OT David Sharpe from their practice squad.

A fourth-round pick of the Raiders in 2017, Sharpe was let go after final cuts earlier this month. He has some talent, however, and the Texans can use all the help they can get along the offensive line.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden thinks Derek Carr was "too aggressive" late against the Dolphins.

Carr made a questionable decision to target Martavis Bryant in the end zone late in the game, and Xavien Howard came away with the interception. "I think at times he is trying too hard," Gruden said of his quarterback. "I’m really excited about the way he has played and improved and mastered this offense. We are getting closer. That was a painful turnover. We will address that, and we will make the corrections." Carr has quietly played well the last couple weeks, but he has just two touchdowns and two interceptions to show for it in those games.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Vikings DE Everson Griffen is undergoing an evaluation at a local hospital.

Pelissero reports Griffen has been "battling a serious, mental health-related issue for weeks." That issue apparently manifested itself when Griffen allegedly threatened to shoot someone at a Minneapolis hotel on Saturday. The Vikings released a statement on Monday saying they "are currently focused on Everson's well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family."

The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud wrote it "seems unlikely" Jameis Winston starts this week against the Bears.

Winston is eligible to return from his three-game suspension, but it does not appear as if a starting job is waiting for him following Ryan Fitzpatrick's hot start. "Jameis is a member of our team and anxious to get him back," coach Dirk Koetter said after the game on Monday night. "And I know Jameis, whatever role he ends up in, I know Jameis will embrace that role and give it everything he's got." The last line tells the story, and that tale is one in which Fitzpatrick remains the starter for at least another week. It would be a surprise if that is not confirmed on Tuesday.

Greg Olsen (foot) said he is "way ahead of the curve" in his recovery.

Olsen missed nine games after suffering a foot injury last season. He does not know when he will be back this time around, but he expects it to be much sooner than that. "Last year at two weeks I was laying in my bed in a cast. I couldn't do anything," Olsen said. "What that time frame is, we're optimistic. Hopefully, it's sooner rather than later." The Panthers are on bye this week before facing the Giants in Week 5.

Cameron Brate caught 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards and one touchdown in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

O.J. Howard saw eight targets and surpassed 50-yards receiving for the third consecutive game, but it was inevitably Brate who was utilized in the red zone and found pay dirt. Brate was still held catchless in the Bucs' first two games and can't be trusted over Howard (or another streamer) unless an injury to his aforementioned teammate occurs.

DeSean Jackson caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Jackson's boom-bust style of play finally came crashing back to Earth as he failed to eclipse 100 yards or score for the first time all season. He nearly salvaged his day with a vintage punt return for a score, but the highlight-reel run was inevitably called back due to holding. Chris Godwin (5-74-1) recorded 10 targets on the day and still has the higher floor moving forward.
Sep 25 - 1:35 AM

O.J. Howard caught 6-of-8 targets for 72 yards in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Howard out-targeted fellow TE Cameron Brate 8-4 on the night, but it was the latter who was used (and scored) in the red zone. Howard has still recorded at least 50 yards receiving in all three games so far this year and continues to progressively see more usage with every passing week. He's the tight end to own in Tampa Bay.

Chris Godwin caught 5-of-10 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Godwin came out rusty, dropping two passes and fumbling all in the first half. He eventually shook it off and dominated downfield with Mike Evans (6-137-1), overpowering his defender inside the five-yard line for his only score of the night. Although Godwin benefitted from the Bucs trailing 30-10 in the second half, the second-year pro has now scored in every game this season. Godwin's proved he can flourish catching passes from Jameis Winston, but it would certainly help him if it's Ryan Fitzpatrick's gun-slinger style of play that remains under center.
