Injury
Tyrell Williams Absent for another practice

Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Williams (concussion) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Analysis:

Williams has an extra day to get ready, given the Lions play on Monday night. In his absence, we'd see more snaps from Quintez Cephus, Trinity Benson, and Kalif Raymond.

Injury
Ronnie Stanley Could miss time with ankle injury

The Ravens are preparing for Stanley to sit out Sunday's game against the Chiefs and possibly additional contests to follow while he undergoes more medical testing for an ankle injury that prevented him from practicing Wednesday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Analysis:

The Raven offensive line was absolutely dominated in Week 1 against the Raiders, and Stanley didn't look like himself. Nor did Ali Villanueva, who was a mess at right tackle. If Stanley does miss time, Villanueva is expected to move to his natural left tackle position. But the Ravens are in a world of hurt, against a Steve Spagnuolo coached defense that has done a good job on this offense in the recent past.

Transaction
Matt Skura Signed to active roster

Skura was signed to the Giants' active roster Thursday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Injury Transaction
Kevin Pierre-Louis To be placed on IR

Pierre-Louis (hamstring) is slated to be placed on placed on injured reserve.

Injury

The Raiders expect Mariota to miss multiple weeks after he aggravated an existing quadriceps injury in Monday's 33-27 overtime win over the Ravens, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Transaction
Devonta Freeman Bumped up to Baltimore roster

The Ravens plan to sign Freeman off their practice squad Thursday, the running back's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Analysis:

Freeman might get some run, but we were most impressed by Ty'Son Williams in Week 1. Williams has done nothing for us to think he won't be the "lead" guy, but there obviously will be a rotation the Ravens figure out throughout the season.

General
Joe Burrow More snaps under center

Burrow took 53 percent of Sunday's snaps under center, after averaging around 80 percent of his snaps in shotgun formation last year, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

General

General
Shaquil Barrett Starts season strong

Barrett recorded four tackles (three solo), including one sack, and was credited with two quarterback hits overall in the Buccaneers' 31-29 win over the Cowboys in Week 1.

Injury
Derwin James Jr. Sidelined by toe issue

James did not practice Wednesday due to a toe injury, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis:

The Chargers may just want to be cautious with their star safety, who played 100% of the snaps in Week 1. If James can't play, there would be even more potential for points in a projected shootout with Dallas.

Injury
Joe Reed Lands on injured list

Reed was placed on the practice squad injured list Wednesday due to an undisclosed injury.

General
Tyrann Mathieu Ready for game action

Mathieu was not listed on the Chiefs' injury report Wednesday.

Injury
DeMarcus Lawrence Requires foot surgery

Lawrence will require surgery after breaking the fifth metatarsal of his foot at Wednesday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Injury
DeMarcus Lawrence Breaks foot, out indefinitely

Lawrence will be sidelined indefinitely after he broke his foot at Wednesday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis:

Beyond just the effect this has on the Cowboys' matchup with the Chargers this weekend, it's a BRUTAL blow to a defense that couldn't stop anyone last year, and might not be able to this year yet again. The Cowboys are going to have to score points in bunches to compete this year, which is good for fantasy, but it might be exhausting for their offense given they need to lean on Dak Prescott in his return from a serious injury. It figures to be an extended absence for Lawrence.

Injury
Marquise Brown Listed as DNP on Wednesday

Brown was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice report with an ankle injury.

Analysis:

Brown made it through Monday night's contest with the Raiders, so hopefully this is just something precautionary with Baltimore coming off the short week. He had a great game against Vegas, but staying on the field has (obviously) been a problem for him. We'll monitor this, given the Ravens need him and he'd be an attractive fantasy option on Sunday Night Football against the Chiefs.

Injury
DeMarcus Lawrence Unlikely to play Week 2

The Cowboys aren't expecting Lawrence to be available Sunday against the Chargers while he tends to a foot injury, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis:

Yikes. The bad news keeps piling in for the Cowboys, who look like they'll also be without DE Randy Gregory (COVID-19). In a game lined at the highest point total of the week, the Cowboys might well be without their two best pass rushers. Meanwhile, Charger rookie LT Rashawn Slater handled an immense challenge last week, keeping Justin Herbert relatively clean against Chase Young and company in a Charger win in DC. Herbert might have ample time to throw in Week 2, picking apart a poor secondary.

General
La'Mical Perine Not on Week 2 injury report

Perine (foot) wasn't listed Wednesday on the Jets' Week 2 injury report.

Transaction
Aldrick Rosas Bumps up from practice squad

The Saints signed Rosas off their practice squad Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

General
Joey Bosa Picks up first sack this season

Bosa compiled four tackles (three solo), a forced fumble and a sack in Sunday's 20-16 win over Washington.

Injury
Keelan Cole Limited at practice

Cole (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

General
Jordan Whitehead To be available Week 2

Whitehead (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday.

Injury
Anthony Schwartz Limited at practice

Schwartz (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Dan Labbe of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

General
Deshaun Watson Held out again

Injury
Pharaoh Brown Dealing with two injuries

Brown missed Wednesday's practice with shoulder and ankle injuries.

Injury
J.J. Arcega-Whiteside Held out of practice Wednesday

Arcega-Whiteside (ankle) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

General
Josh Reynolds Upgrades to full practice

Reynolds (foot) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Injury
A.J. Brown Limited in practice again

Brown (knees) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Injury
Miles Sanders Logs limited practice Wednesday

Sanders was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to an ankle injury and rest.

Injury
Josh Jacobs Misses Wednesday practice

Jacobs didn't practice Wednesday due to toe and ankle injuries, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Analysis:

Jacobs is clearly less than 100% and is going to have to be managed for the time being. He split snaps with Kenyan Drake nearly right down the center in Week 1, and while he is the goal line back, we would expect Drake to have a significant role. Jacobs being injured just increases it.

Injury
Zach Ertz No practice Wednesday

Ertz (hamstring/rest) didn't practice Wednesday.

Injury
Brandon Aiyuk May need more practice time

San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that Aiyuk should see more playing time moving forward as long as he stays healthy and regularly participates in practice, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Analysis:

Aiyuk's bizarre usage -- less than 50% of the snaps played and no targets -- in Week 1 seems to be both health related (hamstring) AND motivational. Shanahan said Aiyuk needs to be better than Trent Sherfield if he's to see more playing time going forward. If Aiyuk can't be better than "Trent Sherfield," he has some problems. He's not startable until he proves that he is.

Injury
Preston Williams Limited at practice

Williams (foot) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Injury
Adam Shaheen Limited in return to practice

Shaheen was limited at practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Injury
Anthony Firkser Exits practice with possible injury

Firkser left practice early Wednesday, likely due to an unspecified injury, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.

Injury Transaction
Ethan Pocic Lands on IR

The Seahawks placed Pocic (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official website reports.

General
William Fuller V Uncertain role for Week 2

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores admitted Wednesday that he isn't sure what Fuller's role will look like for Sunday's game against the Bills, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Analysis:

Fuller missed a ton of practice time this summer and was suspended in Week 1. We'd anticipate a package of plays for him in Week 2 against Buffalo, and he isn't startable just yet.

Injury
Ronald Darby MRI results show small tear

Coach Vic Fangio said Darby (hamstring) went for an MRI on Monday, which revealed a small tear, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Transaction
Trenton Irwin Signed to active roster

Injury

The Bengals plan to place Allen (hand) on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Injury
Jeff Wilson Jr. On track for midseason return

Wilson (knee) recently resumed running and is still expected to return from the PUP list around midseason, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Injury
Arik Armstead Isn't practicing Wednesday

Armstead (abdomen) isn't practicing Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Injury
Odell Beckham Jr. Won't play this week

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that Beckham (knee) will be held out of Sunday's game against the Texans, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis:

OBJ will miss his second consecutive game to start the year in his return from ACL surgery. There was, apparently, no setback, but we're already seeing diminishing returns on a 6th-round OBJ draft pick. Baker Mayfield targeted nine different receivers in Week 1, none more than five times. OBJ isn't a fantasy option until (duh) he gets on the field and shows us what his role is.

Injury
Dre Greenlaw Isn't practicing Wednesday

Greenlaw (groin) isn't practicing Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Injury
Saquon Barkley Listed as questionable

The Giants list Barkley (knee) as questionable for Thursday's game at Washington, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis:

The quick turnaround from Sunday to Thursday is less than ideal for Saquon, who played under 50% of the snaps in Week 1 and averaged just 2.6 YPC. Our Dr. Edwin Porras thought Barkley looked fine physically, but the Giants gave him no room to run against a nasty Denver defense. Unfortunately for Saquon, this week’s matchup is with a Washington front seven that kept the Chargers’ run game in check last week — allowing just 3.6 yards per clip. We expect Barkley’s usage will be similar in Week 2 as in Week 1, and if he gets through unscathed, he could start to be ramped up in Week 3 off the “mini-bye.” He’s a low-end RB2/FLEX.

Transaction
John Miller Activated off COVID-19 list

The Panthers activated Miller from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official website reports.

Injury
Evan Engram Ruled out for Thursday

Engram (calf) has been ruled out for Thursday's game at Washington, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis:

Engram will miss his second consecutive game, but appears to be on track to play in Week 3 after the long turnaround. He's not a fantasy option until we see him play and play well.

Injury
Keelan Cole Expected to practice

Cole (knee) is on track to return to practice this week, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Analysis:

The Jets will have a deeper receiving corps in Week 2 if Cole and Jamison Crowder (COVID-19) play, as expected. Their presence could reduce the role of rookie Elijah Moore.

Injury
Jamison Crowder Nears return

Jets head coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that Crowder (illness) still has "to clear one more hurdle" before being activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

Analysis:

If Crowder can play in Week 2, it's possible the Jets reduce the role of rookie Elijah Moore, who had negative receiving yards in Week 1 but actually ran 39 routes to 40 for Corey Davis. Moore is more of a stash-and-hold in fantasy leagues right now, since the Jets' offense did not look sharp overall.

Injury
Gabriel Davis Misses practice

Davis won't practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis:

Davis got dinged up late in the Bills' loss to the Steelers. He scored a TD in that contest, and any absence from him would result in more targets for Emmanuel Sanders.

General

Collins played 65 snaps and recorded two tackles during Sunday's loss to the Chargers.
