Doug Martin    RB   Tampa Bay Buccaneers
 
Martin (knee) was limited in practice Tuesday, the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Martin was able to practice with the first-team offense, but his reps were predictably capped, leaving his status murky heading into Thursday's divisional matchup in Atlanta. Even if the Buccaneers deem him active in Week 3, Bobby Rainey performed so well this past Sunday (22 rushes for 144 yards and three receptions for 30 yards) that Martin may only see a limited snap count, if he plays at all.
Rashad Ross    WR   Chicago Bears
 
Ross was promoted to the Bears' active roster Tuesday.

Jerrel Jernigan    WR   New York Giants
 
The Giants placed Jernigan (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The nature of Jernigan's injury is uncertain, but it seems likely that it occurred in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He will not need surgery to repair his "mid-foot sprain," but he is still facing a lengthy recovery timetable, and his season is officially over. Julian Talley was added from the practice squad to take Jernigan's spot on the roster.
Robert Woods    WR   Buffalo Bills
 
Woods was targeted three times during Sunday's win over Miami, catching one ball for just five yards. He played 47 of 59 offensive plays, The Buffalo News reports.

Vance McDonald    TE   San Francisco 49ers
 
McDonald (knee) plans to practice this week, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McDonald suffered a knee injury during Sunday's game, but fortunately testing afterward revealed no structural damage. As a result, McDonald expects to practice this week, which could boost his fantasy stock for Sunday against the Cardinals, especially if fellow tight end Vernon Davis (ankle) misses out due to a more cumbersome injury.
Roddy White    WR   Atlanta Falcons
 
White (hamstring) is expected by coach Mike Smith to be able to play Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

White missed practice both Monday and Tuesday while resting his legs, but apparently, he should be ready for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers. While news from coach Smith that White will be available is certainly encouraging, the veteran wideout will probably be less than 100 percent, considering he's currently carrying minor hamstring and knee pains.
Marcedes Lewis    TE   Jacksonville Jaguars
 
Lewis (ankle) was placed on the Jaguars' injured reserve/designated-to-return list Tuesday, ESPN reports.

Lamar Miller    RB   Miami Dolphins
 
Miller (ankle) took part in Tuesday's practice, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Miller suffered a minor ankle injury toward the end of Sunday's loss to the Bills, but is practicing Tuesday and doesn't figure to be limited moving forward. If anything, teammate Knowshon Moreno (elbow) being ruled out boosts Miller's fantasy stock significantly as the undisputed No. 1 running back on the Dolphins.
De'Anthony Thomas    RB   Kansas City Chiefs
 
Thomas (hamstring) could return to action this week, the Kansas City Star reports. "[Thomas] should be able to work himself back in this week," coach Andy Reid said. "We'll just see how he does once we get to Wednesday."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thomas missed his first two potential NFL outings due to a hamstring injury, but his debut now seems imminent if he's able to fit in the requisite practice this week. Meanwhile, Jamaal Charles suffered a high-ankle sprain of undetermined severity in Week 2, thereby placing his immediate availability in question. There are a number of questions to be answered as Week 3 approaches, but Thomas or Cyrus Gray (foot) could be minor factors in the run game behind Knile Davis on Sunday in Miami.
Clay Harbor    TE   Jacksonville Jaguars
 
Harbor (calf) intends to run Tuesday with the expectation of returning to practice Wednesday, the Jaguars' official site reports. "It's getting better," he said. "It's not 100 percent, but I think it's getting to the point where I can do some explosive stuff."

Marshawn Lynch    RB   Seattle Seahawks
 
Lynch is dealing with an "ongoing" back concern which will be watched closely this week, Liz Mathews of ESPN 710 Seattle reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Lynch was beset by a back concern almost weekly during the 2012 season, yet he didn't miss a game en route to a career-high 1,590 yards on the ground. Meanwhile, the issue may explain his non-typical usage in Week 2, when he garnered just six carries and four receptions. Expect his status to be clarified by the release of Wednesday's injury report, but note that his last absence - in 2011 - occurred when he awoke with back spasms on game day.
Vernon Davis    TE   San Francisco 49ers
 
Davis' MRI on Monday revealed only a deep bruise and no structural damage to his left ankle, making it possible that he will play Sunday against the Cardinals, CSN Bay Area reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Davis appears to have eluded a significant ankle injury, which could allow him to avoid missing any games. The tight end left Sunday night's game after getting his foot caught under an opponent and did not return following the incident. While Davis was seen using crutches after the game, he fortunately is only dealing with a bone bruise. At the moment, it's unclear if he will practice this week, making his status one to monitor.
Lance Moore    WR   Pittsburgh Steelers
 
Moore (groin) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Moore missed the Steelers' first two games due to a groin issue, but appears to be on track to make his team debut Sunday night versus the Panthers. Barring a setback, Moore could return to Pittsburgh's lineup as the team's No. 3 receiver, a position Justin Brown has occupied to date.
Brandon Myers    TE   Tampa Bay Buccaneers
 
Myers had two catches on two targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Rams.

Josh Gordon    WR   Cleveland Browns
 
Gordon (suspension) pled guilty to DWI in North Carolina on Tuesday, CBS Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gordon received 12 months of unsupervised probation and will be required to pay court costs and a fine for his July arrest. Currently suspended for the entire 2014 season, Gordon is believed to be destined to have his punishment reduced to 10 games, pending a final agreement on a new NFL drug-testing policy. Furthermore, since Gordon entered his plea on Tuesday, he won't be subject to the new policy's expected two-game suspension for conviction of DWI, since that policy is not anticipated to be retroactive. So while Gordon remains suspended, a change in his future availability should hinge on the new drug-testing policy being finished.
