Giovani Bernard Headshot

Bernard caught two of four targets for 16 yards and added 10 yards on the ground in Thursday's 13-9 loss to the Texans.

After leading the Bengals' rushing corps in yards in Week 1, Bernard took a step back against Houston. Joe Mixon again led the team in touches with 10 followed by Bernard and Jeremy Hill with seven apiece. The Bengals fired their offensive coordinator, Ken Zampese, after Thursday's game and replaced him with Bill Lazor. The promotion of Lazor may make carries harder to come by in Cincinnati. In Lazor's last full season as an offensive coordinator, 2014 in Miami, the team ran the ball 40.1 percent of the time as compared to 43.3-percent league average that season. The Bengals ran the ball 43.9 percent of the time under Zampese since the beginning of 2016.

Kayvon Webster Headshot

Webster (shoulder) was unable to participate in Tuesday's practice, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Webster injured his shoulder in the Rams' season opener and has been sidelined since. The fact that he could not even practice in a limited role does not bode well for his chances to take the field on a short week. Barring a turnaround in health, look for Nickell Robey-Coleman to get another start at cornerback should Webster be sidelined again.
10:31 pm (EST)
Malcolm Brown Headshot

Brown was absent from Tuesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Brown presumably sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. Although he had seven carries for 16 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, Brown had just one catch for a four yard loss in the closely contested loss to the Redskins. While his status for Thursday's game against the 49ers remains up in the air, the 24-year-old does not figure to be a fantasy factor should he ultimately take the field.
10:26 pm (EST)
Sean Davis Headshot

Davis tied a team high with eight tackles (seven solo) in a victory over the Vikings Sunday.

Davis was relatively quiet in Week 1, as he tallied just three tackles. However, game flow got him more involved against the Vikings. The 23-year-old was sidelined for just one play as he saw 65 of a possible 66 snaps in the contest. He will have an advantageous matchup against Mike Glennon and the Bears on Sunday.
10:19 pm (EST)
Ryan Shazier Headshot

Shazier logged an efficient eight tackles (five solo) and one pass defended in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

After seven tackles (four solo) in the season opener, Shazier picked up right where he left of in Week 2. The 25-year-old was the only Steelers' defensive player to see every snap (66), and is primed to continue seeing heavy workloads going forward. He has yet to record a sack or force a turnover, but it figures to just be a matter of time.
10:16 pm (EST)
Karl Joseph Headshot

Joseph tallied five tackles (three solo) to go along with one sack, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery in Sunday's victory over the Jets.

Joseph's sack, forced fumble, and fumble recovery all came on the same play when he rocked opposing quarterback Josh McCown on a first-and-ten early in the fourth quarter. Although he only saw 56 snaps, it was still every opportunity that he had, as the Raiders controlled the time of possession in the game. The 24-year-old picked up where he left off after leading the team in tackles in Week 1, and will look to stay hot Sunday against the Redskins.
10:11 pm (EST)
Khalil Mack Headshot

Mack notched his first sack of the season Sunday to go along with four tackles (three solo) in a win over the Jets.

The Raiders controlled the time of possession during the contest, so Mack was not required to do all that much Sunday. The star defensive end saw 44 snaps (79%) in what will likely be one of his lighter workloads this season. He should be in line for heavier production in Week 3 when the Raiders take on the Redskins.
10:04 pm (EST)
Jaquiski Tartt Headshot

Tartt (neck) was limited in practice Tuesday.

Although the 49ers did not practice Monday, Tartt was listed as a non-participant on the 49ers' injury report, so his limited status Tuesday is a move in the right direction. His status will become more clear once Wednesday's practice report is released.
10:02 pm (EST)
Andrew Sendejo Headshot

Sendejo led the Vikings with 10 tackles (eight solo) in the Vikings Week 2 loss to the Steelers.

Not only was Sendejo all over the field Sunday, but never left it on defense, as he was on the field for all 74 snaps. The veteran strong safety will figure to continue being relied on heavily when the Vikings take on the Buccaneers in Week 3.
9:57 pm (EST)
Jimmie Ward Headshot

Ward (hamstring) was limited in Tuesday's practice.

Ward continues to battle a hamstring ailment that kept him limited last week throughout practice. The safety did play in Week 2's loss to the Seahawks, but only managed 38 defensive reps (46 percent). A similar workload could be in store for Ward on Thursday if he is cleared to play.
