Wes Welker    WR   Denver Broncos
 
Despite a report from the Denver Post on Tuesday stating that the Broncos are preparing as if Welker will play Week 1, the suspension for testing positive for amphetamines has been finalized and will take effect immediately, forcing him to miss the first four games of the season, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

The report from the Post's Mike Klis stated that the Broncos do not expect to be without Welker for the Week 1 matchup against Indianapolis, but as expected, there doesn't seem to be any validity to this stance by the team, as other reporters were quick to cite their own reports that shot down any notion that Welker would play Sunday. This is probably for the best, as Welker was still recovering from a concussion and should be able to return closer to full health following his suspension.

Wes Welker    WR   Denver Broncos
 
Welker (suspension) has not been ruled out for Week 1, at least not by the Broncos, who are moving forward as if he will be able to play against the Colts, the Denver Post's Mike Klis reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's not clear how much validity to place on this report, as the notion that a player could play in a game just days after receiving a four-game suspension from the league is pretty counter-intuitive. The thinking from the team's side is that suspensions are never announced this late in a the week, but considering Welker would still have to pass concussion protocol, it would make more sense to accept the four-game suspension while he may still not be 100 percent healthy. Either way, it's something to monitor throughout the week, but the prevailing logic points to Welker being an incredibly risky guy to bank on in fantasy for Week 1.
Jonathan Dwyer    RB   Arizona Cardinals
 
Dwyer is listed as the Cardinals' No. 2 running back in advance of Monday's opener against the Chargers, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Rob Gronkowski    TE   New England Patriots
 
While Gronkowski (knee) told reporters that he was in line to play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, coach Bill Belichick indicated Tuesday that the team has not made a final determination on that front, ESPN.com reports. "I'm glad that Rob is optimistic about his situation," Belichick said Tuesday. "We will go through a week of practice, look at everything and everybody and see where everybody is at and try to do what's best for the team."

Marquess Wilson    WR   Chicago Bears
 
The Bears placed Wilson on the injured reserve/designated-to-return list, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wilson will need a few more weeks to recover from surgery to repair a broken collarbone, so the Bears decided to place him on injured reserve to open up a roster spot for cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Assuming Wilson's recovery continues going as planned, he will likely return to the Bears at some point later this season.
