  Texans | Anthony Miller likely to make debut    Tue Sep 21, 03:23 PM

Houston Texans WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) is expected to play for the first time this season in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers, according to Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle.

Footballguys view: Getting Miller back will help, even if it's just a little. The Texans will be down Nico Collins and Danny Amendola in Week 3 on Thursday night against the Panthers. We'll see how Miller gets worked into the mix behind Brandin Cooks.

  Bears | Andy Dalton likely to miss multiple games?    Tue Sep 21, 02:33 PM

Chicago Bears QB Andy Dalton (knee) has yet to be ruled out for Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting Dalton is considered week-to-week with the knee injury he suffered in Week 2. If Dalton misses time, Justin Fields is expected to start in his absence.

Footballguys view: The Fields era needs to begin sooner rather than later. The Bears aren't going to go anywhere with a healthy Dalton as their starter. It seems like everyone knew that except for Matt Nagy and the Bears. Fields is a smart field general with rushing ability to boot. His presence could inject some life into this offense we didn't see with Dalton. Yes, the rookie will make some mistakes but we're generally excited about Fields future in the NFL.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger dealing with pec injury    Tue Sep 21, 01:46 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral) has a left pectoral injury that will likely affect his practice reps leading up to the Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: Well, that didn't take long. Roethlisberger is not the player he used to be, and getting banged up this early in the season is not a great sign. We'll see him limited or out on Wednesday. On Friday, Roethlisberger will have to be a full participant in practice for us to feel confident recommending him in Week 3.

  Buccaneers | John Hurst back with Tampa Bay    Tue Sep 21, 01:32 PM

Free-agent WR John Hurst was signed to the practice squad of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of West Georgia in 2020, Hurst spent most of his first season with the Buccaneers. When they released him in October of 2020, the Los Angeles Chargers picked him up but he did not make final cuts last month. He gets a good release off the line of scrimmage and has the speed to attack a defense vertically. We'll monitor him but only in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Browns | Jarvis Landry out at least three weeks    Tue Sep 21, 01:21 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the Browns here. Landry's knee injury will knock him out for at least three weeks, and Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said he was "week to week." Donovan Peoples-Jones, Anthony Schwartz, and Rashard Higgins worked as the Browns top three receivers after Landry was banged up in Week 2. Odell Beckham Jr is supposed to make his return to the field this week. We'll monitor Beckham's practice status as the week goes on.

  Packers | Jace Sternberger done in Green Bay    Tue Sep 21, 01:11 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jace Sternberger was waived Tuesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft, Sternberger never played up to his potential with the Packers. Over the last two seasons, Sternberger compiled only 12 receptions for 114 yards and one touchdown. He opened the season with a two-game suspension and now is looking for a new team. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, Sternberger could land on the practice squad.

  49ers | Jacques Patrick to 49ers    Tue Sep 21, 12:50 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jacques Patrick was signed off the practice squad by the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: A Matt Waldman favorite we've been monitoring in crazy deep dynasty leagues...and even XFL leagues (yes, that was a thing). Undrafted out of Florida State in 2019, Patrick began his pro career with the Tampa Bay Vipers in the XFL. He then spent time with the Bengals and now gets called up by the 49ers. He's a big back (234 pounds) but has light feet and doesn't take much time to build up speed and power. With the 49ers RB corps so decimated by injury, Patrick may get a chance to showcase his skill.

  Texans | Davis Mills will start    Tue Sep 21, 12:07 PM

Houston Texans QB Davis Mills was confirmed the starter for Week 3, and the team will run the same offense in the passing game. The designed runs for QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) will not be utilized.

Footballguys view: Mills was seen as a potential quarterback of the future when the Texans selected him in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft. He didn't play much at Stanford due to injury and threw only 18 touchdowns in 14 game appearances (11 starts). Mills has size/athleticism as part of his game, and he throws with touch and anticipation - especially in the middle of the field. Poor footwork as a passer and a bad internal clock when judging the rush are his two biggest problems. With Brandin Cooks the only Texans skill position player you can trust, let's hope Mills keeps feeding the veteran receiver now that he's the starter.

  Texans | Danny Amendola likely out    Tue Sep 21, 11:59 AM

Houston Texans WR Danny Amendola (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Amendola was playing his part as the slot receiver in two games for the Texans but exited the Week 2 game against the Browns with this hamstring injury. It's a short week for the Texans as they play on Thursday night against the Panthers, so it's no surprise the veteran won't play in Week 3. Andre Roberts and Chris Conley will get more work with Amendola and Nico Collins (shoulder) out for the Texans.

  Cowboys | DAL hopeful on Amari Cooper    Tue Sep 21, 10:15 AM

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ribs) can 'hopefully get comfortable enough to play' in Week 3, according to owner Jerry Jones.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries always come down to a pain tolerance issue. Watch his practice participation during the week, mainly Saturday, as the Cowboys take on the Eagles on Monday Night Football. Cooper could be a game-time decision which is bad news for Fantasy GMs. Cedrick Wilson would get more work if Cooper can't go.

  Jaguars | Trevor Lawrence missing the mark    Tue Sep 21, 10:10 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has thrown uncatchable passes on 36 percent of his attempts this season.

Footballguys view: Lawrence has the ability and opportunity to be the franchise quarterback for the Jaguars. The offense has generally been unwatchable as Urban Meyer's transition to NFL coaching has not gone smoothly. Lawrence has tremendous upside but the rookie is learning some tough lessons early in his NFL career.

  Giants | Evan Engram on field for workout    Tue Sep 21, 01:45 AM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) was able to participate in an on-field practice Monday, Sept. 20 in shells, but no full pads.

Footballguys view: The tight end position is brutal in fantasy leagues unless you have Travis Kelce or Darren Waller. There might be Fantasy GMs in need of a return from Engram as he's missed the first two games of the season due to injury. He might be able to practice later in the week and make his regular season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3.

  Jets | HC explains absence of Denzel Mims    Tue Sep 21, 01:26 AM

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims was inactive for the Week 2 game against the New England Patriots because the fifth receiver doesn't play special teams, head coach Robert Saleh explained Monday, Sept. 20. WR Jeff Smith was the starting gunner, and was up in place of Mims.

Footballguys view: Mims is not a great fit in the new Mike LaFleur (Shanahan) offense. Couple that with his inability to play special teams, and you can see why Mims was inactive. Unfortunately, we think it's going to take his next stop before we see what Mims can do as a wide receiver. He's talented, but patience is required with the way things have played out for Mims in year two.

Seattle Seahawks WR DK Metcalf (knee) limped off the field in Week 2 against the Tennessee Titans, but he was able to return and finish up.
