Jesse James (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

It puts him on track to play Sunday against Chicago. James scored a pair of touchdowns in Week 1 but came back to Earth with just 27 yards last week versus Minnesota. He's a hit-or-miss TE2.
Sep 21 - 4:53 PM

Chester Rogers (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Rogers practiced fully last Friday but must have had a setback. He's a long shot for Sunday's home game with Cleveland. T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncreif and Kamar Aiken will line up as the Colts' top wideouts in Week 3.
Sep 21 - 4:42 PM

Marlon Mack (shoulder) didn't practice on Thursday.

It's a downgrade from Wednesday when he put in a limited session. Mack scored a touchdown in Week 1 but ranks dead-last among qualified running backs in yards per carry (1.3). Robert Turbin should see more work if Mack can't get the green light for Week 3 versus Cleveland.
Sep 21 - 4:40 PM

A study of deceased ex-Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez's brain revealed a case of Stage 3 CTE.

Stage 3 CTE is associated with "cognitive impairment and trouble with executive functions like planning and organizing." Hernandez was one of the youngest ex-players to be diagnosed with the brain disorder, which is the result of repeated head trauma. Serving a life sentence for murder, Hernandez committed suicide in April.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he expects Jermaine Gresham (ribs) to play against the Cowboys in Week 3.

Gresham was back at practice Thursday after missing last week's game with a rib injury and should be all systems go for Monday night's primetime game with Dallas. Troy Niklas started in Gresham's place last week at Indianapolis.
Sep 21 - 4:23 PM

Sam Bradford (knee) was officially "limited" in Thursday's practice.

It would appear Bradford is on track to return against the Bucs. If he does indeed suit up, he will be a mid-range QB2 at less than 100 percent against a feisty defense.
Sep 21 - 4:20 PM

Rob Gronkowski (groin) was officially "limited" in Thursday's practice.

It puts Gronk on track to play against the Texans. He will likely remain limited on Friday. Perhaps the Patriots will create the impression he's a game-time decision, but Pats/Texans kick off at 1ET. Fantasy owners will have clarity when setting their lineups.
Sep 21 - 4:17 PM

Cardinals ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) will make his 2017 debut in Week 3.

Coach Bruce Arians did say Bucannon will be on a snap count. Once he's back to full health/conditioning, Bucannon should be an every-down player.
Sep 21 - 4:14 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians expects Chris Johnson's carries to increase in Week 3.

Making his 2017 debut, Johnson had 11 carries in Week 2, soundly out-playing Kerwynn Williams. Arians appears ready to give Johnson a chance to run with starting duties during David Johnson's absence. Fantasy players shouldn't expect more than an RB3 day, but Johnson is worth scooping up in leagues where he remains unowned (admittedly, probably not many).
Sep 21 - 4:11 PM

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (shoulder) was limited at Thursday's practice.

Joseph underwent an MRI after leaving last week's game with a shoulder injury but has already put in two limited practices this week and should play his usual role Sunday at New England. The Texans are still shorthanded at cornerback with Kevin Johnson (MCL) out 4-6 weeks.
Sep 21 - 4:10 PM

Texans TE Stephen Anderson (concussion) has resumed practicing in full.

Each of the Texans' top three tight ends suffered concussions in Week 1, but Ryan Griffin and Anderson are both ready to return. C.J. Fiedorowicz is on injured reserve. Anderson will back up Griffin, and has no fantasy value.
Sep 21 - 4:07 PM

Allen Hurns (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 3.

Hurns was initially considered "limited" on Wednesday, but ended up getting a "full" designation, as he did on Thursday. Hurns is a WR4 with decent touchdown odds. He's the Jaguars' primary red zone threat.
Sep 21 - 4:04 PM

Jay Ajayi (knee) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

Coach Adam Gase has essentially already guaranteed Ajayi will play, but it would be nice to see him return to a "limited" session on Friday. Headed for a gorgeous matchup with the Jets, Ajayi will be an elite RB1 if he suits up.
Sep 21 - 3:55 PM

DeVante Parker (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice.

It's a downgrade from Wednesday, when Parker was "limited." Coach Adam Gase hasn't expressed much concern about Parker's status, but mid-week downgrades are never good news. It could mean Parker's ankle didn't respond well to Wednesday's practice. Parker's Friday status will be key. Fantasy owners should consider Parker genuinely questionable, and begin plotting a back-up plan.
Sep 21 - 3:54 PM

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said ILB Denzel Perryman (I.R.) is "on schedule" in his recovery from a torn ankle ligament.

Lynn said he may even be ahead of schedule." Perryman won't be eligible to return or even practice for several more weeks while on injured reserve, though he should be back at some point this year. His original timetable called for an 8-10 week recovery.
