J.J. Nelson Headshot

Nelson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cowboys.

Nelson's injury designation indicates he is not 100 percent heading into Week 3, but he was able to practice on a limited basis from Thursday through Saturday, so it remains to be seen if he will be slowed at all once game time rolls around. Nelson stepped up last week in a big way with fellow wide receiver John Brown (quad) out, and as long as he plays Monday, he will have an opportunity to back up that showing with Brown out for a second week in a row.

Arthur Maulet Headshot

Maulet was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.

With the Saints thin in the secondary, Maulet has a chance to contribute Sunday. Regardless of whether he is asked to play with the defensive unit or special teams, Maulet holds minimal fantasy value entering Sunday's game.
5:25 pm (EST)
Kendall Langford Headshot

Langford was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.

Langford's release reflects the Saints pursuit of added secondary depth for Sunday's contest. There's a chance he'll be re-signed after Sunday, but until then he's free to sign anywhere.
5:19 pm (EST)
Darryl Tapp Headshot

Tapp was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.

Tapp signed with New Orleans just three days ago so the dismissal is a bit perplexing. The initial thought here is that Tapp might find his way back onto the roster following Sunday's contest. Tapp was released to help reinforce a thin secondary.
5:12 pm (EST)
D.J. Humphries Headshot

Humphries (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.

His projected absence will mark the second consecutive game he has missed. The injury was said to keep Humphries out for a maximum of two weeks, so it's likely he'll make a return in Week 4.
5:04 pm (EST)
Tank Carradine Headshot

Carradine (ankle) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed no significant damage, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While not great news, the 49ers have to be exhaling some sighs of relief Saturday. There were rumblings of a possible season-ending injury prior to the MRI results, so 4-6 weeks seems like a much better outlook when putting things into perspective. In the meantime, rookie Solomon Thomas should be the primary beneficiary.
4:55 pm (EST)
Nick Dzubnar Headshot

Dzubnar was promoted to the active roster after signing with the Chargers on Saturday.

It's unlikely he'll have much of a fantasy impact in the early going, but there's a chance he can move his way up the depth chart as the season progresses.
4:51 pm (EST)
Jason Verrett Headshot

Verrett (knee) has been placed on injured reserve.

The decision comes as no surprise following the announcement he'd receive season-ending surgery. In theory, Verrett could return after Week 10, but given the extent of the injury, any such scenario seems a bit unrealistic at the moment. Without Verrett, the Chargers will likely rely on Trevor Williams and Desmond King to slide into his spot.
4:45 pm (EST)
John Brown Headshot

Brown (quad) will not play in Monday's game against the Cowboys, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic repots.

Brown was unable to practice for the second week in a row, so as was the case a week ago, he will not take the field with the rest of his teammates. Brown's absence should again open up opportunities for J.J. Nelson -- who is dealing with a sore hamstring this week -- and Jaron Brown.
4:38 pm (EST)
Steven Johnson Headshot

Johnson was released by Pittsburgh on Saturday, the team's official site reports.

The veteran was let go in order to make room for the activation of L.J. Fort from the practice squad. Given his track record, it wouldn't be surprising if he lands elsewhere sooner than later.
