Rod Streater suffered a hip flexor injury in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Texans.

Streater's departure allowed Andre Holmes (5-45-0 on seven targets) and Denarius Moore (3-29-0 on five targets) to get some extra run. The severity of Streater's injury is unknown right now.

49ers TE Vance McDonald left Sunday night's game with a knee injury, but later returned.

McDonald ended up missing only one quarter. He'll continue to play in two-tight end packages with Vernon Davis.

Lions CB Nevin Lawson dislocated his ankle in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Carolina.

Lawson needed immediate surgery, which means the fourth-round rookie is likely done for the year. The Lions' already weak secondary is now even thinner after also losing Bill Bentley (torn ACL) in Week 1.

Bears FS Chris Conte was forced from Sunday night's game in the second quarter with a shoulder injury.

He's done for the night. Conte had two tackles and an interception before exiting. Danny McCray has replaced him in base sets.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, "early indications" are Jamaal Charles' ankle sprain is "mild."

The same goes for SS Eric Berry, who like Charles exited Sunday's loss to Denver and did not return. Per La Canfora, the team is "hopeful neither will miss significant time." Charles is believed to be scheduled for a Monday morning MRI. It does sound like Charles has a shot to play in Week 3 at Miami, but Knile Davis needs to be owned everywhere. The fact that Charles never reentered after the first-quarter injury suggests he was in a lot of pain.

The Union-Tribune San Diego confirms the "initial prognosis" for Ryan Mathews' right knee injury is a sprained MCL.

It remains "unclear how much time" Mathews will miss. Mathews is expected to be "further evaluated," but a sprained MCL would be good news at this point, as opposed to an ACL tear. Mathews could be back within a month. The Chargers' bye isn't until Week 10, so Mathews won't have that date to work around. Look for Donald Brown to take over as San Diego's primary back while Danny Woodhead continues to handle most passing-down and change-of-pace work.

Kenny Britt caught his lone target for 17 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Bucs.

Britt added 12 yards rushing on an end-around. After posting a goose egg in Week 1 on three targets, Britt is finally on the board. He's just not seeing enough balls come his way with Brian Quick dominating targets at receiver. The St. Louis offense isn't good enough to support more than one receiver.
Sep 14 - 9:18 PM

Brandon Myers caught two passes for 33 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 loss to the Rams.

Myers saw just the two targets after seeing eight passes come his way in the opener. Myers isn't a big-play threat and is merely a low-upside TE2/3.
Sep 14 - 9:16 PM

The Redskins currently hope Robert Griffin III (ankle) will only miss 4-5 weeks.

Griffin suffered a dislocated ankle in the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He'll have an MRI on Monday to determine whether surgery is necessary and exactly how long he'll be out. Kirk Cousins, who shredded the Jags for 250 yards and two touchdowns in relief Sunday, will be a QB2 against the Eagles in Week 3.
Sep 14 - 9:11 PM

Jared Cook caught all four of his targets for 46 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over Tampa Bay.

It was a standard day at the office for Cook, who will typically flirt with 4-5 catches and 40-50 yards. He's the clear No. 2 option in the Rams' passing "attack" behind Brian Quick, but the St. Louis offense can't support more than one receiver. Cook is a middling TE2. He has a favorable matchup next week vs. Dallas.
Sep 14 - 9:11 PM

Donnie Avery caught three passes for 14 yards in the Chiefs' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

Avery was targeted six times on the afternoon after seeing 13 balls come his way in Week 1. With Dwayne Bowe returning from suspension and Travis Kelce playing a larger role, Avery's targets were a lock to decrease. He's a WR5.
Sep 14 - 9:09 PM

Julius Thomas caught four passes for 39 yards and one touchdown in Denver's Week 2 win over Kansas City.

Thomas looked to be well on his way to another monster day after he reeled in a four-yard touchdown on a perfect throw from Peyton Manning to end the Broncos' first possession. But Julius was targeted just five times and lost a red-zone look to Jacob Tamme for a four-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Thomas now has four scores through two games and remains a locked-in top three tight end. The Broncos go to Seattle in Week 3.

Free agent RB Ray Rice will appeal his indefinite suspension Monday.

The NFLPA, along with an outside lawyer retained by Rice, will handle the appeal. It's a no-brainer for the player's union to get involved despite the stomach-turning nature of Rice's crime as They don't want to allow a precedent to get set. Regardless, Rice is almost certainly done in the NFL because his on-field decline isn't worth the off-field issues he now comes with.
Sep 14 - 9:02 PM

Mike Evans caught all four of his targets for 49 yards in the Bucs' Week 2 loss to the Rams.

Evans caught a 29-yard pass with eight seconds left in the fourth quarter to get the Bucs to the Rams' 32-yard line while down 19-17. At the end of the catch, Evans took a thundering hit and was hurt on the play. Since the Bucs were out of timeouts and Evans was injured on the field, the Bucs were forced to take a 10-second runoff. The game ended there. Evans will be a WR3/4 Thursday against Atlanta. He's going to need better play from Josh McCown.
Sep 14 - 9:02 PM

Brian Quick caught seven passes for 74 yards in the Rams' Week 2 win over the Bucs.

Quick was once again the clear No. 1 receiver for the Rams, seeing a team-high nine targets for the second consecutive week. He could have had a bigger day if he'd made a play on a deep ball in the second half. But Quick is up to 14-173-0 on 18 targets through the first two weeks. The St. Louis offense can only support one receiver, and it's looking like it'll be Quick. He's a WR4.
