Dustin Hopkins Headshot

Hopkins was 2-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 3-for-3 on extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Hopkins converted from 23 and 28 yards but pulled a 52 yard attempt wide left in the third quarter. It's the 26-year-old's second miss from 50-plus this season, but he has been a perfect 5-for-5 from shorter distances.

Matt Hazel Headshot

The Colts waived Hazel on Monday for the second time this month.

Hazel was claimed by the Redskins earlier in the month and has since been let go, re-signed, and let go again. He has recorded one reception for one yard in two games with the club. He will presumably clear waives and look for his next opportunity.
10:00 pm (EST)
Bradley Roby Headshot

Roby (foot) was wearing a boot on his left foot Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

Roby started off last week in a boot as a precautionary measure, as well, so at this point we'll assume it's more of the same. The 25-year-old played 30 of 65 defensive snaps against the Bills on Sunday and did not appear to suffer a setback.
9:54 pm (EST)
Brett Goode Headshot

Goode (hamsting) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Goode, the Packers' long snapper, suffered the injury early in Sunday's victory over the Bengals. The team learned Monday that he would need to be sidelined for several weeks, which led to his placement on the IR, as team's typically just use one roster spot for long snappers. Goode and the team will need to reach an injury settlement if he hopes to find a new opportunity this season.
9:49 pm (EST)
Vontae Davis Headshot

Davis (groin) is scheduled to practice and play this week, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Davis was a limited participant in practice last week and was listed as doubtful before sitting out his third consecutive game. The return of their top cornerback could provide a big boost as the Colts are set to take on the Seahawks in Week 4.
9:41 pm (EST)
Rees Odhiambo Headshot

Odhiambo had his ankles looked at during Monday's walk-through, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Odhiambo presumably suffered the injury during Sunday's loss to the Titans. The severity of the issue is unknown at this time, but Matt Tobin figures to be in line to fill in at left tackle should the second year lineman be forced to miss any time.
9:35 pm (EST)
Jadeveon Clowney Headshot

Clowney had six tackles (all solo), two sacks and returned a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Clowney had a monster first half with four tackles, his first two sacks of the season and the 22-yard fumble return for a touchdown, but the Patriots adjusted at halftime to limit his second half impact. It was the former first-round pick's best performance of the season by far, which he hopes to duplicate against the Titans in Week 4.
9:34 pm (EST)
Whitney Mercilus Headshot

Mercilus recorded his first sack of the season in Sunday's loss to the Pats to go along with five solo tackles and a forced fumble.

Mercilus' sack of Tom Brady mid-way through the second quarter led to a fumble that was recovered and taken to pay dirt by teammate Jadeveon Clowney. The 27-year-old was one of two Texans' defenders to see the field for all 65 defensive snaps. He will look to carry his momentum into Week 4's tilt against the Titans.
9:30 pm (EST)
Todd Davis Headshot

Davis recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Davis played only 41 of 65 snaps but still managed to tie for the team lead in tackles with Brandon Marshall. The 25-year-old played only 16 of 71 snaps against the Cowboys in Week 2, so it's difficult to gauge his standing for this week's game against the Raiders.
9:25 pm (EST)
Von Miller Headshot

Miller had six tackles (all solo) and one sack in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

It marks Miller's third sack and highest tackle output of the season. The star outside linebacker could potentially be limited in practice this week as he was nursing a knee injury early last week, but it shouldn't be anything to worry about after playing 55 of 65 defensive snaps Sunday.
