    • A source tells CSN Bay Area that Vernon Davis has avoided a significant left ankle injury.
      Advice: Davis' Monday MRI revealed a deep bruise and no structural damage, meaning he could suit up for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Cardinals. It sounds like a mild, "low" kind of sprain. If Davis does have to sit a game out, the 49ers may have to turn to Derek Carrier at tight end with Vance McDonald (knee) questionable.

    • Vernon Davis is undergoing an MRI on his left ankle.
      Advice: Davis suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss, and was spotted on crutches afterward. It's quite possible he has a high-ankle sprain, which would sideline him in the neighborhood of four weeks. Backup Vance McDonald is dealing with a knee injury, meaning third-year UDFA Derek Carrier could be the next man up on the depth chart.

    • Vernon Davis has been ruled out of Sunday night's Week 2 game against the Bears with an ankle injury.
      Advice: Davis injured his ankle after being dragged down from behind in the fourth quarter. He limped off the field and was eventually carted off. Davis secured all three of his targets for 39 yards prior to going down. There's a chance Davis may be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which would cost him multiple weeks.

    • Vernon Davis caught 4-of-6 targets for 44 yards and two touchdowns in San Francisco's Week 1 rout of the Cowboys.
      Advice: One of the league's premier red-zone threats, Davis notched scores of 29 and two yards in the first quarter. Davis can be a disappointing fantasy play when he doesn't find the zone, but he does so with such regularity that he's an every-week TE1.

    • Josh Gordon has pled guilty to DWI charges in Wake County, North Carolina, and been sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation.
      Advice: He must also pay a $390 fine. The league's new drug policy mandates a two-game suspension for players who are convicted or plead out in drunk-driving cases, but Gordon's arrest occurred under the old policy. Per Profootballtalk, he'll only be subject to a fine, and won't have his current 10-game ban lengthened. NFL.com's Albert Breer reports Gordon has been "assured" that's the case. It means he's still on track to return in Week 12, and no longer has any outstanding legal issues. Now hopefully Gordon can stay on the straight and narrow.

    • ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Josh Gordon will be able to attend the Browns' facility during his ten-game suspension.
      Advice: The Browns reportedly pushed hard for Gordon to be allowed to attend meetings and work out in the team weight room, which makes sense because he seems like a young player in need of a constant support system. Fantasy owners can continue to cling to Gordon, but we suspect he'll end up getting dropped in most normal-sized leagues during bye-week crunches. He'll be eligible in Week 12.

    • According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Josh Gordon "has been notified" his suspension will be reduced from 16 to 10 games, "pending final approval" of the NFL's new drug policy.
      Advice: Profootballtalk.com has now joined the Plain Dealer and ESPN's Adam Schefter in reporting Gordon's suspension will indeed be ten games, reduced from 16. The new substance abuse policy reduced the ban. PFT's Mike Florio reports Gordon will be subject to another two-game suspension stemming from his offseason DUI arrest, but Florio considers it "unlikely" that the additional ban will be enforced during the 2014 season. So Gordon's projected return date this year is November 23 against the Falcons. That's Week 12.

    • FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo predicts an eight-game suspension for Josh Gordon if the NFL and NFLPA agree to a new drug policy.
      Advice: Garafolo's "educated guess" is based on information from a variety of sources. Garafolo emphasizes that things are changing "minute to minute." ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported the sides would like to reach an agreement by Thursday evening, but it's not considered a slam dunk.

    • ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are "kicking around idea of new kicker," and have worked out free agents Rob Bironas, Alex Henery and Garrett Hartley.
      Advice: Seventh-round rookie Nate Freese is just two for his first five on field goals, and on extremely thin ice. Arguably any of the three veterans the Lions worked out would be an improvement.

    • Lions rookie K Nate Freese is now 2-of-5 on field goals.
      Advice: Freese missed two 49-yard attempts at Carolina Sunday and also missed from 43 yards in Week 1. He went 20-of-20 at Boston College last year. It's possible the Lions will be looking into free agent kickers this week.
