9/20/2017 Chris Carson, Sea, RB
For the second time in three years, the Seahawks are on the verge of watching an overlooked rookie running back develop into their primary ball carrier. Two years ago, it was Thomas Rawls emerging after Marshawn Lynch was sidelined by an injury. Now it's Carson, a seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State, taking advantage of his opportunity.

Analysis: It's not clear how the Seahawks will break down carries this week against Tennessee. Rawls is expected to be without restrictions, coach Pete Carroll said. The Seahawks also want to find a role for Eddie Lacy as their bruising back running between the tackles, especially after Lacy was inactive for last week's game, raising questions about his long-term future with Seattle.
9/20/2017 Jimmy Graham, Sea, TE
Graham isn't practicing on Wednesday as he deals with an ankle injury.

Analysis: He's questionable for Week 3 against the Titans after an extremely disappointing start so far.
9/20/2017 Jay Ajayi, Mia, RB
Ajayi did not practice on Wednesday due to a lingering knee issue.

Analysis: We believe the Dolphins are just taking in easy with Ajayi, who has been dealing with some soreness. We expect he'll be out there this weekend.
9/20/2017 DeMarco Murray, Ten, RB
Murray did not practice on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.

Analysis: Derrick Henry came up big with 92 yards in Week 2 and would get the call again if Murray can't go.
9/20/2017 Demaryius Thomas, Den, WR
Thomas was limited on Wednesday due to a hamstring issue.

Analysis: This injury just seems to have popped up for Thomas. It may have occurred in last week's contest. At this point, we expect him to play versus Buffalo.
9/20/2017 Austin Seferian-Jenkins, NYJ, TE
Seferian-Jenkins spent the past two Sundays holed up alone in his home while watching his New York Jets play on TV, eager to be out there again with his teammates. With his two-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy over, the tight end could get that chance against Miami this Sunday.

Analysis: That road back, though, has been far from an easy one for Seferian-Jenkins, who marked his 242nd day of sobriety with his first full practice of the regular season. He dealt with legal troubles a year ago after being arrested on a DUI charge in Florida and was released a day later by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who drafted him in the second round in 2014.
9/20/2017 Orlando Scandrick, Dal, CB
Scandrick (hand) plans to return Sunday to face the Cardinals.

Analysis: He had to miss the Week 2 loss to the Broncos with a broken hand.
9/20/2017 Corey Davis, Ten, WR
Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out of Week 3's game against the Seahawks.

Analysis: Davis had played through the injury last week but had only one catch for four yards, so this could just be a sign the Titans are being extra careful with their first-round pick.
9/20/2017 Sam Bradford, Min, QB
Bradford (knee) practiced Wednesday and appears likely to start Sunday against the Bucs.

Analysis: There were fears that the knee problem which kept him out last weekend against the Steelers would lead to an extended absence. Bradford does have a history of knee trouble, but it looks like he will give it a go against Tampa Bay in hopes of duplicating his outstanding Week 1 performance. Bradford's return ups the value of Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs following poor Week 2 performances with Case Keenum under center.
9/20/2017 John Brown, Ari, WR
Brown was unable to return to practice Wednesday.

Analysis: A quad injury and his sickle-cell trait which makes recovery difficult is likely to keep him sidelined for a second straight week, and possibly longer.
9/20/2017 Jarvis Landry, Mia, WR
Landry (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Analysis: It's possible this was just a precaution or a rest day for Landry after he was listed as questionable entering last weekend with the knee issue. He went out and made 13 catches for 78 yards, so it would seem Landry will still be safe to put in your lineup this week.
9/20/2017 Philip Wheeler, Ari, LB
The Arizona Cardinals re-signed Wheeler on Wednesday after he was released again Friday.

Analysis: The 6-foot-2, 245-pound Wheeler spent the preseason with the Cardinals before being released on Sept. 8 and then re-signed on Sept. 11. The Cardinals originally signed Wheeler to a one-year contract on July 27. Wheeler, 32, is a nine-year NFL veteran who played in 133 games (66 starts) with the Indianapolis Colts (2008-11), Oakland Raiders (2012), Miami Dolphins (2013-14) and Atlanta Falcons (2015-16) with 513 tackles and 6.5 sacks.
9/20/2017 Terrance West, Bal, RB
West did not practice Wednesday because of a thigh injury.

Analysis: It's unclear if this injury is serious enough to keep him from traveling to London for this weekend's matchup with the Jaguars. West's potential absence - along with Danny Woodhead being out - would make Buck Allen a possible RB1 against the Jaguars.
9/20/2017 Tyler Eifert, Cin, TE
Eifert sat out practice Wednesday because of knee and back problems.

Analysis: Many projected Eifert to be one of fantasy's top tight ends this season. Instead, his ongoing injury problems and the Bengals' horrible start offensively make him someone to consider dropping altogether, or at least leave on the bench.
9/20/2017 Rex Burkhead, NE, RB
Burkhead did not practice Wednesday due to a rib injury.

Analysis: Burkhead got hurt in the Week 2 win over the Saints, getting five touches on the eight snaps he played and catching a touchdown pass. If he's unable to go Sunday against the Texans, the value of James White jumps up and Dion Lewis becomes a potential fantasy play.
9/20/2017 Danny Amendola, NE, WR
Amendola returned to practice Wednesday, seemingly putting him on track to play in Week 3 after missing Sunday's win over the Saints due to a concussion and a knee problem.

Analysis: Amendola could have his snaps limited if he does play against the Texans, but his potential return could hurt the value of Chris Hogan.
9/20/2017 Rob Gronkowski, NE, TE
Gronkowski (groin) did not practice Wednesday, according to the team's injury report.

Analysis: It was reported earlier that he did practice after Gronk was seen to be in uniform and stretching. Gronkowski had called his groin injury minor, so it seems likely either the Patriots are just being coy or are being extra cautious with their star tight end. Feel safe that you'll be able to use him in your fantasy lineup against the Texans on Sunday.
9/20/2017 Mason Foster, Was, LB
Foster is expected to miss Week 3's matchup with Raiders due to a separated shoulder.

Analysis: Foster, whose interception in Week 2 sealed Washington's win over the Rams, is second on the Redskins with 15 tackles after leading the team in that department last year.
9/20/2017 Deandre Coleman, Buf, DT
The Bills signed Coleman.

Analysis: Coleman returns to Buffalo after being among the team's final cuts earlier this month.
9/20/2017 Robert Blanton, Buf, S
The Buffalo Bills have reshuffled their defensive depth by signing safety Blanton and tackle Deandre Coleman in preparing to host the Denver Broncos this weekend.

Analysis: Blanton has five seasons of NFL experience and returns to Buffalo after spending last year with the Bills. He was a free agent after being released by the Dallas Cowboys before the start of this season.
