9/27/2016 Jordan Gay, Buf, K
The Buffalo Bills released kicker Jordan Gay, the team announced Tuesday.

Analysis: Gay had been used only on kickoffs, and the Bills apparently will now let place-kicker Dan Carpenter handle the kickoff duties as well as the place-kicking chores.

The Bears placed Fuller on injured reserve Tuesday. He could be recalled from IR, with rules requiring he miss at least six weeks.

The Redskins signed Sullivan on Tuesday after placing starting center Kory Lichtensteiger on injured reserve.

9/27/2016 Kory Lichtensteiger, Was, C
The Redskins put Lichtensteiger (calf) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Lichtensteiger has now appeared in just eight games over the last two seasons due to injuries.
9/27/2016 Jimmy Garoppolo, NE, QB
Garoppolo practiced for the second straight day Wednesday. He said before the workout that this is the first time he's dealt with an AC joint sprain in his shoulder, but added that he isn't concerned with the prospect of potentially having to play through an injury.

Analysis: Garoppolo missed last week's game against Houston after getting hurt during the second quarter of New England's win over the Dolphins on Sept. 18.
9/27/2016 Jacoby Brissett, NE, QB
Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo practiced for the second straight day Wednesday.

Analysis: Garoppolo said before the workout that this is the first time he's dealt with an AC joint sprain in his shoulder, but added that he isn't concerned with the prospect of potentially having to play through an injury. He missed last week's game against the Texans, when Brissett started and injured his thumb.
9/27/2016 Tyler Eifert, Cin, TE
Eifert is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Eifert has been recovering from an ankle injury sustained in the Pro Bowl. He told reporters Tuesday that he had no discomfort coming off his first week of practice since offseason ankle surgery. Eifert said his status Thursday will be determined by the coaches.
9/27/2016 Laquon Treadwell, Min, WR
Treadwell has barely seen the field while several other rookies are making names for themselves in the first few weeks of the NFL season.

Analysis: Selected with the 23rd overall pick of the 2016 draft, Treadwell remained on the sideline in the season opener, played on only two snaps the following week and was listed as inactive in Sunday's 22-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers. Unfortunately, he's just not a fantasy option at this point.
9/26/2016 Michael Floyd, Ari, WR
Floyd came out of Sunday's game with a headache on Monday morning and is in the concussion protocol.

Analysis: Floyd had four receptions for 65 yards against the Bills.
9/26/2016 Austin Seferian-Jenkins, NYJ, TE
Seferian-Jenkins was claimed on waivers by the New York Jets.

Analysis: The second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014 was waived last week after his second DUI arrest. Seferian-Jenkins, 23, would join a super-sized Jets' receiving corps with 6-foot-5 Brandon Marshall and 6-4 Eric Decker. Blocking specialist Kellen Davis, who is 6-foot-7, is listed as the starting tight end on the last depth chart.
9/26/2016 Duane Brown, Hou, T
Brown returned to practice Monday for the first time since January surgery to repair a torn quadriceps, and coach Bill O'Brien said he could play Sunday against the Titans.

Analysis: Brown was injured in Houston's regular-season finale last season and hasn't played since. He's been a mainstay on the line since he was drafted in the first round in 2008.
9/26/2016 Orleans Darkwa, NYG, RB
Shane Vereen is out for the season and Rashad Jennings' hand injury could push Darkaw into a starting role in Week 4 against the Vikings.

Analysis: Darkwa, 24, was signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2014. After four games, he was released and joined the Giants. He had 10 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.
9/26/2016 Shane Vereen, NYG, RB
Vereen is out for at least eight weeks with a torn triceps.

Analysis: Vereen started Sunday with Rashad Jennings (hand) inactive and rushed for 67 yards on 11 carries with a touchdown.
9/26/2016 Thomas Rawls, Sea, RB
Rawls has been diagnosed with an injury to the fibula in his left leg and will be out a few weeks.

Analysis: Rawls missed Sunday's game against the 49ers after leaving Seattle's Week 2 game with a shin injury.
9/26/2016 Russell Wilson, Sea, QB
Wilson has a sprained MCL in his left knee, but is expected to play against the Jets. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said during his weekly radio show on KIRO-AM on Monday morning that Wilson "feels great" and that his recovery is already going "exceedingly well."

Analysis: Wilson underwent an MRI on Sunday night that confirmed the ligament sprain and Wilson received treatment all night, Carroll said.
9/26/2016 Jordan Cameron, Mia, TE
Cameron was ruled out of Thursday's game at Cincinnati with a concussion.

Analysis: Cameron, 28, had seven catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in the first three games. He was injured in the second quarter of Sunday's overtime win against the Cleveland Browns and evaluated for a concussion. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said Cameron, who was plagued by concussions with the Browns before joining Miami in free agency. He had three documented concussions in his first four seasons and missed several games in 2014 while recovering from a severe head injury.
9/26/2016 DeAngelo Hall, Was, S
Hall is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Analysis: Hall went down after colliding with a teammate trying to make a tackle in the second quarter. He said Redskins doctors, including James Andrews, told him "it kind of feels like you tore your ACL." Tests confirmed the injury. It's the second time in three seasons Hall suffered a season-ending injury. In 2014, he ruptured his Achilles.
9/26/2016 Manti Te'o, SD, LB
Te'o is out for the season with a torn Achilles.

Analysis: Te'o was injured on non-contact play with 4:45 remaining in the first quarter of the Chargers' loss at Indianapolis on Sunday. Dropping in coverage and retreating to his right, Te'o collapsed 10 yards away from the ball and immediately grabbed his left shin and calf area. The Chargers confirmed Monday Te'o suffered a torn Achilles and will require surgery.
