    Titans' Derrick Morgan: Will play Sunday
    6m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Derrick Morgan (hamstring) will play Sunday against the Raiders.

    Morgan has been nursing a hamstring injury which kept him out of Week 2's loss to the Falcons. He could see his snap counted limited because of the injury, so look for Kevin Dodd, David Bass, and Aaron Wallace to see more action than usual.

    Davon House (illness) is not listed on the Jacksonville Jaguars ' Week 3 inactives report.

    Taiwan Jones (knee) will play Week 3 against the Titans.

    Jones was questionable heading into the matchup after being limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. He could see his snap monitored closely on Sunday, in which case DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard could expect to see increased action.

    Dexter McDonald (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Titans.

    McDonald is simply a depth option at cornerback, so his absence won't affect the Oakland Raiders ' defense much.

    Josh Doctson (Achilles) didn't feel well after pregame warmups and was thus a late scratch Sunday against the Giants in New York, Kimberly Jones of NFL Network reports.

    Perhaps a week of rest will do the rookie wide receiver wonders, but the development isn't the greatest omen for Doctson's foreseeable future. His practice participation will be of utmost interest in advance of Week 4.

    David Amerson (concussion) has been cleared to play Sunday against the Titans.

    Amerson passed concussion protocol and will be on the field for Sunday's game. He'll serve as the team's starting cornerback with D.J. Hayden slated to be his immediate backup. Amerson's injury will be something to keep an eye on, as Oakland looks to sure up their abysmal secondary.

    Cardale Jones (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

    Jones will have to wait at least one more week before he suits up for his first NFL game, as he has been inactive the first three weeks of the season with a shoulder injury. EJ Manuel will again serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

    Josh McCown is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks because of a strain and hairline crack in his non-throwing shoulder, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    McCown suffered the injury in Week 2 against the Ravens, and while he was apparently pushing to play Sunday against the Dolphins, he will now miss multiple weeks because of the issue. With Robert Griffin (shoulder) also out, Cody Kessler will be under center for the Cleveland Browns .

  • Brock Osweiler HOU QB
    Texans' Brock Osweiler: Tips opponents to target
    19h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Brock Osweiler has displayed a tendency to lock onto his primary read, something the Patriots exploited in Houston's 27-0 loss in Week 3, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    On the one interception he threw Thursday, Osweiler locked onto DeAndre Hopkins in the second quarter, failing to look off the defense or use a pump fake, leading to Jamie Collins picking him off. He'll need to break himself of that habit and vows to examine the tape and become a better quarterback. After a nice first week of the season, Osweiler has thrown three interceptions to one touchdown in the past two games.

    Patriots' Jacoby Brissett: Dealing with thumb issue
    2d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    The severity of Jacoby Brissett 's right thumb issue has yet to be clarified, the New England Patriots ' official site reports.

    While initially there was speculation suggesting that Brissett may have suffered a torn ligament in his thumb, subsequent reports made the injury seem less ominous, including a report via ESPN's Dianna Russini that the QB is dealing with a sprained thumb that will not require surgery. In any case, we expect added clarity this coming week on the status of both Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo, who was inactive Thursday due to a shoulder injury. New England's next game is in on Oct. 2, against the Bills, giving the Patriots some time to evaluate the health of the two QBs on their active roster, and quite possibly add depth at the position. Of course, looming large for the team on that front is the fact the top signal-caller Tom Brady (suspension) will be eligible to return to action in Week 5.

    Bryce Petty (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Petty's shoulder injury continued to keep him sidelined through practice this week and will leave him inactive for a third straight game to begin his career. As a result, Geno Smith will serve as the New York Jets ' backup to starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick this Sunday.

    Damien Williams is active for Sunday's Week 3 matchup versus the Browns, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    C.J. Prosise (hand) is slated to be among the Seattle Seahawks ' inactives for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Both Prosise and Thomas Rawls (lower leg) are expected to take a seat, opening the door for Christine Michael to take on the majority of the backfield reps in Week 3. If the preceding comes to fruition, fellow rookie Alex Collins will likely serve as the primary backup to Michael.

    Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Slated for inactive status Sunday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Thomas Rawls (lower leg) is expected to be inactive Sunday against the 49ers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    With absences from all three practices this week, Rawls will rest his bruised leg for at least one game, leaving Christine Michael in a prime position to handle the bulk of the RB reps in Week 3, especially with rookie C.J. Prosise (hand) slated to join Rawls on the inactive list.

    Jonathan Williams is active for the first time as a pro Sunday against Arizona, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

    The Buffalo Bills do have four running backs active and Williams is probably fourth on that list, but with the Bills having a new offensive coordinator in Anthony Lynn (who's a running backs coach by trade) and the season already spinning in a bad direction, there's a chance the rookie could be involved in some plays somewhere along the line.

    Josh Doctson (Achilles) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Giants in New York.

    The Washington Redskins initially listed Doctson as active but changed their tune shortly thereafter. Perhaps the rookie wideout's Achilles injury may have flared up, or the training staff decided that a week off would be beneficial. In any case, Kirk Cousins isn't starving for threats in the passing game with DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Jamison Crowder, Jordan Reed, and Chris Thompson at his disposal.

    The four-year pro has yet to be see the field in a Miami Dolphins uniform, now having carried inactive status over the first three weeks of the regular season. Hunter could certainly begin logging playing time once he is up to speed in head coach Adam Gase's system, but that opportunity doesn't appear to yet be on the horizon.

    Laquon Treadwell (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Panthers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    For the second time in three weeks, Treadwell will be in street clothes as the Minnesota Vikings keep only five receivers active Sunday. Treadwell was active over Jarius Wright in last week's win over the Packers, but after the rookie made a limited impact, coach Mike Zimmer will give Wright an opportunity to get back on the field in Week 3.

    Jarius Wright is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Wright was bumped to the inactive list for the first two weeks of the season, as coach Mike Zimmer opted to make rookie Laquon Treadwell available. However, with Treadwell failing to distinguish himself in last Sunday's win over the Packers, Wright will have an opportunity to get back on the field while serving as the Minnesota Vikings ' No. 5 wideout. Don't expect Wright to see many looks from quarterback Sam Bradford over the course of the day.

    Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Not starting Sunday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    C.J. Uzomah will concede the starting tight end role to Tyler Kroft for Sunday's matchup against Denver, Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Uzomah has been the primary pass catching tight end for the Cincinnati Bengals in the absence of Tyler Eifert (ankle), but it will be Kroft that draws the start for Sunday's matchup. Uzomah missed Wednesday's practice with a rib injury, but there has been little to indicate that this is the cause of that decision. Either way, both tight ends are risky fantasy plays against a tough Denver defense, and each stands to see his value plummet following the anticipated return of Eifert in Week 4.

    Tyler Kroft will draw the start at tight end over C.J. Uzomah for Sunday's matchup against the Broncos, Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    While Tyler Eifert (foot) deals with an ankle injury, Kroft and C.J. Uzomah have been seeing the majority of tight end reps. Uzomah has 13 targets in the passing game through two weeks, compared to Kroft's four, but it will be Kroft who lands in Sunday's starting lineup. The pair each had exactly 41 offensive snaps Week 2 against Pittsburgh, but those counts stand to diminish greatly with the expected return of Eifert for Week 4's matchup against Miami.

    MyCole Pruitt (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Panthers, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Pruitt was limited during practice all week, and after evaluating him Sunday morning, team trainers evidently determined that the tight end wasn't ready to go. Since he's the No. 3 option on the depth chart behind Kyle Rudolph and Rhett Ellison, Pruitt won't see many snaps even once he returns to active status.

    With wideouts Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas inactive, Clay -- who practiced in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday -- figures to remain a key cog in the Buffalo Bills ' Week 3 passing attack, assuming no issues with his knee. In Week 2's loss to the Jets, Clay caught five passes for 27 yards on a team-high seven targets.

    Ebron still maintained a questionable designation heading into the weekend after logging a full practice Friday, but after being left off the inactive report, the tight end should be in line for his usual workload.

    Patrick Murray , who is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, injured his left knee during Friday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

    The injury is to the same knee as Murray's torn ACL from two years ago.

    Murray's knee problem may require the Cleveland Browns to bring in a kicker on short notice prior to Sunday's kickoff in Miami. Whether that transpires or Murray is ultimately able to play, Cleveland's expected offensive struggles could limit the scoring opportunities for whoever kicks for the team Sunday.

    McManus nailed field goals of 23, 43, 33 and 35 yards on Sunday, his lone blemish being a 54-yard miss following the game's opening drive. With Denver's offense, again, having plenty of success in the middle of the field, but some struggles as they approach the goal line, McManus should be called on often this season.

    Tucker has hit all five of his field goal tries this season, including four beyond 40 yards and two of 50 yards or more. That's progress for the All-Pro kicker. After going 10-for-11 on kicks of 50 yards or greater in the first two seasons of his career, distance has been Tucker's Achilles heel as of late, with a rate of just eight out of 19 in 2014 and 2015.

    Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict suspended three games
    01/12/2016 • By RotoWire Staff

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
