Jets coach Todd Bowles defended ILB Darron Lee's performance Week 2 against the Raiders.

Lee struggled against the run in Oakland, but the coach does not think it is fair to single out the 2016 first-round pick. "You’re singling out Darron. We had a lot of guys not playing the run very well," Bowles said. "There were more guys involved in that play than you guys see. He’ll be fine." The coach has to defend his player, but Lee has been a disappointment so far in his career.

Browns OLB Jamie Collins (concussion) is unlikely to play Week 3.

Collins was not able to practice on Wednesday, and there does not seem to be much optimism in the building he will be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Colts. James Burgess is expected to get the start in his place.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Myles Garrett (ankle) has made "huge progress" in his recovery.

Garrett shed his walking boot and was seen riding a stationary bike during Wednesday's practice. The rookie is not going to play this week, but it is starting to look like he will hit the low-end of his 4-6 week timetable, giving him a chance to suit up in Week 4.

Bears CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) got in a limited practice Wednesday.

Amukamara has been sidelined since suffering an ankle injury in the third preseason game. He was limited all last week, as well, but he was not able to get on the field against the Bucs. The Bears are hopeful that will change this week.

Eddie Lacy said he is staying as "positive" as he can after being a healthy scratch Week 2.

"It was my first time that happened to me or whatever, so I really don't know what think of it, just do what I can do," Lacy said. "I've just got to continue to be me, go out and practice the same way I've been practicing and see what happens week by week." The owner of a rose-colored lens factory, coach Pete Carroll said he "wish[es]" Lacy could have been active Week 2, and he will still have a role moving forward. Perhaps that will be true if there are injuries in the backfield, but Lacy has no fantasy value as of now. He can be dropped in redraft leagues.

Saints signed DE Kendall Langford, formerly of the Colts.

Langford, 31, was cut by Indy in August after failing to pass a physical. He has struggled with knee issues in recent years, but is a solid run stopper at defensive end and tackle when healthy. He should play soon in New Orleans.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky called DT Mike Daniels (hip) the team's "biggest concern" among injured players.

The Packers listed a whopping 13 players on their Wednesday injury report, including LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring), who didn't even play last week, but apparently is in better health than Daniels. One of the NFL's most dominant defensive linemen, Daniels' loss would be an upgrade to the Bengals' offensive outlook.

Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects the Packers to lighten Ty Montgomery's workload going forward.

The Packers were careful to monitor Julius Peppers' reps when he was with the team last year and Cohen believes the coaching staff is "surely having similar conversations" about Montgomery's usage. Montgomery has played more snaps than any running back in the league so far, a fact that has not gone unnoticed by coach Mike McCarthy. "By no means have we come out and established the rhythm and moved in and out of different personnel groups that we may have liked to in Weeks 1 and 2," he said. "So, I’m definitely aware of it and that’s what game plans are for." Even if the Packers do scale back Montgomery's workload some, he should remain a borderline RB1 in most formats.
Sep 20 - 8:14 PM

Jordy Nelson (quad) expects to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Nelson's status was looking questionable after sitting out the entire second half last week, but he's on track to play after practicing in full. He should be active barring a setback, though expectations should be downgraded at less than 100 percent. The Packers are trending up with Nelson and RT Bryan Bulaga looking likely to return. Randall Cobb (chest) didn't practice Wednesday and is more up in the air for Week 3.

Kendall Wright (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Wright played his usual snaps in last week's loss to Tampa Bay and should be a go for Week 3 against the Steelers. He leads the Bears with 102 receiving yards in the early going.
Sep 20 - 7:52 PM

Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's actually a good sign after Howard was spotted with his arm in a sling following Sunday's loss to the Bucs. It puts Howard on track to suit up this weekend, though his workload and effectiveness will be up in the air against the Steelers' stout defense. Even in standard leagues, Tarik Cohen is the fantasy play for Week 3.
Sep 20 - 7:41 PM

Paul Richardson (finger) is practicing Wednesday.

Richardson played through a dislocated finger Sunday, but his Week 3 status isn't in doubt. He should play his normal snaps against the Titans.

Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Cook looked healthy in Week 2, snaring four-of-six targets for 25 yards in a blowout win over the Jets. This could simply be a case of the Raiders managing his practice reps. Regardless, he should be ready to roll for Sunday Night Football against the Redskins.
Sep 20 - 7:20 PM

Amari Cooper (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

This is the same routine Cooper has been following all year. He'll be fine for Week 3 at Washington, though he has a tough matchup against shutdown corner Josh Norman.
Sep 20 - 7:18 PM

Seahawks RG Oday Aboushi is expected to start Week 3 against Tennessee.

Seattle is shaking up their offensive line after a disastrous start to the season. Aboushi should take over for Mark Glowinski, who is the third-lowest ranked guard at PFF. Seahawks LT Rees Odhiambo is also in danger of losing his job.
