There are no less reliable sources than the players themselves, so take this with a grain of salt. Head coach Rex Ryan recently stated that “Odds probably not real good that he plays.” It also didn't help the situation that a teammate stepped on his ailing foot during a walk through. Keep a close eye on his status heading into the early slate as the Bills will host the Cardinals, but keep in mind that even if he plays, he could be limited or forced to exit the game early.
Hunter was promoted from the practice squad on Tuesday to provide depth while the Giants deal with multiple injuries to their defense, but the Giants decided his services were no longer needed. The undrafted free agent will likely find himself back with the practice squad.
Williams was the roster casualty of Antonio Gates' injury. With Gates looking doubtful for Sunday's game against the Colts, the Chargers signed tight end Asante Cleveland as insurance. Williams was claimed by the Chargers off of waivers from the Giants on September 4th, but San Diego has enough depth even without Danny Woodhead to be able to cut Williams. He will likely latch on somewhere as running back depth, but he's proven to be an ineffective running back in the NFL.
The Jets waived him on Thursday, leaving them without a fullback on their roster. He will return to their practice squad though and could return to the team at some point this year as backfield depth. He offers no fantasy appeal.
With Thomas Rawls missing practice all week and unlikely to play, as well as C.J. Prosise dealing with a broken bone in his wrist, this move simply adds some depth to the Seahawks thin running back position. Christine Michael will draw the start and see the bulk of the work against the 49ers in what looks to be a plus matchup.
After Brate began taking the majority of snaps at TE the Bucs lets Austin Sefarian-Jenkins go. Since being waived he has cleared waivers and is now free to look for a new team.
Along with the Dobson move the Lions moved Gooden to the active roster. The Lions needed more immediate help on the defensive side of the ball and had to make a choice.
Carey did not practice all week with a hamstring injury and he was never expected to suit up this week against Dallas. Carey is not worth owning in any format despite Langford's very loose grip on the starting job. Keep a very close eye on the Bears backfield this week as Jordan Howard could see an expanded role.
The quad injury wont subside and he will be out for Week 3. Levy and Ansah will be missing this game against the Packers in Lambeau and the defense will need to play their A-game to give the Lions a chance at winning. This is shaping up to be a good bounce-back game for Aaron Rodgers and co.
