9/19/2017 Lawrence Timmons, Mia, LB
The Dolphins have suspended Timmons indefinitely after he failed to show up for the team's season opener.

Analysis: The Dolphins reportedly filed a missing person's report when they were unable to contact Timmons, who was found by police at the airport, according to TMZ. It certainly seems possible Timmons' days with the Dolphins are numbered.
9/19/2017 Marshal Yanda, Bal, G
The Baltimore Ravens placed Yanda on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

Analysis: Yanda sustained a fractured ankle during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Cleveland Browns. The 33-year-old Yanda missed parts of training camp as he recovered from offseason shoulder surgery. However, Yanda was dominant in both regular-season games and anchored an offensive line that had already suffered several key losses.
9/19/2017 Jarrad Davis, Det, LB
Davis was placed in the league's concussion protocol following the team's 24-10 victory over the New York Giants on Monday.

Analysis: Selected with the 21st overall pick of the 2017 draft, Davis was injured while tackling Giants running back Paul Perkins in the fourth quarter. Davis immediately put both hands on his helmet and remained on the ground for a minute or two before slowly walking off the field. He has 15 tackles in two games this season.
9/18/2017 Shane Vereen, NYG, RB
Shane Vereen ran for 28 yards on six carries Monday in the New York Giants' 24-10 loss to the Detroit Lions. He added three receptions for 27 yards.

Analysis: Vereen may be one of the few dependable options on the Giants' roster right now. The third-down back has recorded 12 catches over the first two weeks and with Big Blue playing from behind a lot so far, he's got some appeal in PPR formats.
9/18/2017 Eli Manning, NYG, QB
Eli Manning was 22 of 32 for 239 yards and threw one touchdown pass Monday in the New York Giants' 24-10 loss to the Detroit Lions. He threw one interception, didn't fumble and was sacked five times.

Analysis: Though he didn't get much help from his problematic line, Manning missed a few throws when he did have time and generally failed to get the offense moving for a second straight week. The Giants have now been held under 20 points in eight straight games counting last year's playoff loss, and Manning has a mediocre 77.7 passer rating while throwing for just eight touchdowns during that stretch. Keep him benched for the foreseeable future.
9/18/2017 Ameer Abdullah, Det, RB
Ameer Abdullah ran for 86 yards on 17 carries Monday in the Detroit Lions' 24-10 win over the New York Giants.

Analysis: Abdullah had the best game of his career - at least by yardage - and fell just short of becoming the Lions' first 100-yard rusher since Reggie Bush in 2013. He likely would've reached that mark but he exited late in the fourth quarter with an apparent ankle injury. This was a welcome performance after Abdullah was limited to just 30 yards on 15 carries in the season opener.
9/18/2017 Aldrick Rosas, NYG, K
Aldrick Rosas converted his lone field-goal attempt Monday - a 25-yarder - as the New York Giants lost to the Detroit Lions 24-10. Rosas tacked on one PAT.
9/18/2017 Matthew Stafford, Det, QB
Matthew Stafford was 15 of 21 for 122 yards and threw two touchdown passes Monday in the Detroit Lions' 24-10 win over the New York Giants. He did not throw an interception, fumbled once and was sacked three times. Stafford added 23 rushing yards on three carries.

Analysis: The 122 yards is the second-lowest mark of Stafford's career. He threw for 83 yards on Sept. 12, 2010, at Chicago. The low output wasn't a reflection on Stafford, who only threw four passes after halftime with his team in control on the scoreboard. Stafford has six TDs and one interception through two games with a big test next week against Atlanta.
9/18/2017 Bobby Hart, NYG, G
Hart sprained his ankle on the Giants' opening drive of Monday's game against Detroit and will not return.

Analysis: Hart is the Giants' starting right tackle, and his absence isn't good news for an offensive line that had some trouble protecting Eli Manning in last week's season-opening loss at Dallas.
9/18/2017 Eric Reid, SF, S
The 49ers will be without Reid for this week's game against the Rams because of a left knee injury. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that Reid injured his posterior cruciate ligament on Sunday in Seattle. Reid will not need surgery and will probably miss at least a few games.

Analysis: Reid got hurt in the second quarter on a non-contact injury away from the ball on an incomplete pass. He came back for the start of the second half but then then left twice after aggravating the injury.
9/18/2017 Janoris Jenkins, NYG, CB
Jenkins (ankle) is inactive for the Giants' game against Detroit on Monday night.

Analysis: Jenkins, New York's top cornerback, was listed as questionable coming in. Though the Giants still have two other capable starters in veteran Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Eli Apple, their secondary depth will be tested by a Detroit offense that runs a lot of three-wide receiver sets.
9/18/2017 Rob Gronkowski, NE, TE
Gronkowski says the groin injury he suffered in New Orleans is not serious and pronounced himself as "day to day" regarding this week's game against the Houston Texans.

Analysis: "The reports say out there that it was my groin and, yes, it is my groin," the oft-injured New England star tight end said Monday of the injury that caused him to leave Sunday's 36-20 Patriots victory over the Saints. "It's nothing serious and I'm just day to day." Gronkowski, who missed most of the second half of last season and the Super Bowl because of back surgery, caught six passes for 116 yards and a touchdown before leaving after a third-quarter hit.
9/18/2017 Andrew Luck, Ind, QB
Luck will miss his third consecutive game Sunday after being ruled out by Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano on Monday. And there's still no timetable for his return to practice.

Analysis: While Pagano didn't rule out the possibility of Luck coming back Wednesday, Pagano acknowledged that doctors still have not cleared the franchise quarterback to participate.Luck missed all of the Colts' offseason workouts, all of training camp and the entire preseason after having surgery in January to repair a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. Indy has used two starting quarterbacks, Scott Tolzien and Jacoby Brissett , in two weeks. Both are 0-1.
9/18/2017 Jordan Reed, Was, TE
Reed has a bruised sternum and is considered day to day.

Analysis: Reed has a team-high 11 catches for 84 yards through two weeks, though he's yet to find the end zone.
9/18/2017 Rob Kelley, Was, RB
Kelley is day-to-day with a rib cartilage injury and could miss the Washington Redskins' upcoming matchup against the Oakland Raiders.

Analysis: Kelley left the Redskins' 27-20 victory over the Los Angeles Rams with the rib injury after running for 78 yards on 12 carries.
9/18/2017 Ryan Nassib, Jax, QB
The Jaguars have signed Nassib to their active roster.

Analysis: Nassib, 27, spent his first four seasons with the Giants, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2013 draft. Nassib appeared in five games with the Giants, completing 9 of 10 passes for 128 yards and one touchdown. He was released by the Giants during the 2017 offseason; he signed with the New Orleans Saints on June 12 but was released on Sept. 2.
9/18/2017 Calvin Pryor, Jax, S
The Jags have place Pryor on IR.

Analysis: The Jaguars claimed Pryor off waivers on Sept. 8 after he was cut by the Cleveland Browns. He did not see any game action with the Jaguars.
9/18/2017 Sam Bradford, Min, QB
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says Bradford's left knee is "feeling better" a day after the quarterback missed Minnesota's game against Pittsburgh. But Zimmer is unsure when Bradford will play again.

Analysis: Zimmer gave short and ornery answers Sunday when asked about Bradford following the loss to the Steelers. On Monday, he apologized for snapping and joked that there was no wine in the locker room after the difficult loss to help calm him.
9/18/2017 Vic Beasley Jr., Atl, LB
The Falcons are expected to be without Beasley Jr. for at least a month because of a hamstring tear.

Analysis: The 6-foot-3, 246-pound Beasley, who led the NFL in sacks last season with 15.5, had to be helped off the field before heading to the locker room in Sunday night's win over Green Bay.
9/18/2017 Corey Coleman, Cle, WR
Coleman has been placed on injured reserve after breaking his right hand during Sunday's loss in Baltimore. He will undergo surgery and be sidelined for at least eight weeks.

Analysis: It's the second straight season the 2016 first-round pick has broken the hand. Coleman got hurt trying to make a catch early in the fourth quarter. Coleman missed six games as a rookie after breaking his hand in practice. When he returned, he struggled to get up to speed and finished with 33 receptions for 413 yards and three touchdowns - hardly the numbers the Browns imagined when they selected him with the 15th overall pick.
