  • McCown has 'significant sprain,' options open
    The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud said QB Josh McCown "has a significant sprain" to his right (throwing) thumb.

    Advice: McCown is scheduled to see a hand specialist on Monday, and "all options remain open." One of those options is presumably surgery, which may be required if McCown suffered ligament damage. McCown is expected to miss "several weeks." Mike Glennon will start in his absence. Rotoworld.com

  • MRI on Douglas' injured left foot negative
    An MRI on Falcons WR Harry Douglas' injured left foot came back negative.

    Advice: Douglas sustained the injury during the Falcons' demolition of the Bucs on Thursday night. Coach Mike Smith said Douglas' playing status will not be updated until next week. Eric Weems saw more time at wide receiver after Douglas' exit, and would likely fill in as the No. 3 receiver if Douglas cannot play. Rotoworld.com

    The Boston Globe's Erik Frenz says Rob Gronkowski (probable, knee) "probably" isn't ready to be a full-time player yet.

    Advice: Gronk has only played 66-of-153 offensive snaps for the Patriots this season. He is nowhere year a 100-percent player right now, and likely will remain a part timer for at least the next several weeks. Despite the limited snaps, Gronk's scoring prowess makes him a high-end tight end every week. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwayne Allen to see his role increase?
    ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells expects TE Dwayne Allen's targets and receptions will "increase as the season goes on."

    Advice: Allen has only seen six passes thrown his way through the first two weeks of the season, while fellow tight end Coby Fleener has nine targets already. Allen has been more effective with his targets, though, and is simply a better player than Fleener. His role in the offense should grow, but Allen's upside is limited as long as Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton continue to soak up targets. Rotoworld.com

It seems like the only guy I'm asked about, 'is Josh your starter?' You can ask that about quite a few people, starting with me. Am I still the head coach based on that effort?

    Advice: McCown banged his thumb on Falcons CB Robert McClain's helmet on his follow-through Thursday night. With McCown performing so terribly in his first three starts, even if the thumb injury doesn't prove to be significant, it will give the Bucs an excuse to look at Mike Glennon.

    Josh McCown was forced from the Bucs' Week 3 game against the Falcons with a right (throwing) thumb injury, and will not return.

    Advice: Mike Glennon is now in the game at quarterback. McCown smashed his hand on CB Robert McClain's facemask on a follow through, but initially stayed in the game. He departed in the waning minutes of the second quarter, however. McCown was abysmal before heading to the locker room, completing just 5-of-12 passes for 58 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception. His pick came on a pass that took an eternity to develop, and should have never been thrown. McCown may have gotten benched even if he hadn't gotten hurt. Depending on how Glennon looks in relief, the Bucs could already have a controversy on their hands. McCown boasts a 2:4 TD:INT ratio through two and a half games. Rotoworld.com

    Jordan Cameron (shoulder) practiced for the second straight day on Thursday.

    Advice: Cameron will likely remain "limited," but it keeps him on track to return against the Ravens. Cameron can be trusted as a TE1, but playing at less than 100 percent, he's more of a mid-range bet than top-five option. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Cameron appears likely to play Week 3
    The Akron Beacon Journal suggests Jordan Cameron (shoulder) "probably has a good shot at playing" in Week 3 against Baltimore.

    Advice: Cameron returned to a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out all of last week. "[My shoulder] feels good," Cameron said after the practice. "It feels better. ... I'm going to wake up in the morning, and we'll take it from there." Cameron aggravated an August shoulder injury on a 47-yard reception in the Browns' opener. Cameron finished 2013 with 80 catches for 917 yards and seven touchdowns, going to the Pro Bowl as a 25-year-old first-year starter. When healthy, he is an elite fantasy tight end. Rotoworld.com

  • Beat writer guesses one of Bear WRs will play
    Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune's "hunch" is that one of the Bears' starting wide receivers plays Sunday night against the 49ers, but doesn't provide a guess as to whom it will be.

    Advice: We would add however, that ESPN's Adam Schefter stated Sunday he would be "really" surprised if Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, questionable) played. Our guess all along has been that Brandon Marshall (ankle, questionable) had a better shot of suiting up against San Francisco, but obviously there were never and are still never any guarantees. Just from reading tea leaves, we'd advise fantasy owners to sit tight with Marshall while handcuffing him with Santonio Holmes. Jeffery owners should explore early-game alternatives. Rotoworld.com

Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray will fill in at tight end. Also inactive for the Browns are OLB Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), Ben Tate (knee), WR LaRon Byrd, CB Pierre Desir, NT Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, and DE John Hughes. Rotoworld.com

    Jaguars declared Cecil Shorts (hamstring) inactive for Sunday's game at Washington

    Advice: Shorts made the trip, but never had a realistic shot to play as he deals with yet another soft-tissue injury. We'd consider him very questionable for the Week 3 game against the Colts. It leaves the Jags with Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee as their starting wideouts again, and both are on the WR4 radar against a leaky Redskins secondary. The rest of the Jaguars inactives: SS Johnathan Cyprien, OT Austin Pasztor, RB Storm Johnson, TE Clay Harbor, OG Tyler Shatley and OT Josh Wells. Rotoworld.com

  • Alshon Jeffery appears doubtful for SNF at SF
    A source informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that both Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are "75 percent" certain to miss Sunday Night Football against the 49ers.

    Advice: They're both likely to be game-time decisions. Jeffery got in a limited practice Friday, while Marshall missed the entire work week. If neither can go, Santonio Holmes will fill the No. 1 receiver hole for Jay Cutler and become an intriguing WR3 option. Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte would also play expanded roles. Rotoworld.com

The Bears signed two receivers from the practice squad Saturday. Santonio Holmes is the next man up for Chicago. Rotoworld.com

Ideally, we will have more updates on each Bears wideout by Saturday or Sunday morning. Stay tuned. Jeffery owners need to have an alternative lined up. Rotoworld.com

He's likely staring at a game-time decision, however. Jeffery did practice on a limited basis Friday, which is a good sign. He's also likely to be a game-time call.

    Advice: As the injury has dogged Cameron since August, it would probably be in fantasy owners' best interest for the Browns to hold out Cameron for at least one game in order to get the shoulder right. We still suspect Cameron is on the doubtful side of questionable. He may come down to a game-time decision. Rotoworld.com

Flacco didn't do anything fancy, instead relentlessly targeting Steve Smith and his tight ends on short-to-intermediate routes. He looked Smith's way a whopping 10 times compared to only three for Torrey Smith. Flacco will remain a low-end QB2 for Baltimore's Week 3 trip to Cleveland. Rotoworld.com
