Peter King reviews the biggest NFL storylines following an eventful Week 3 in Football Morning in America.

Latest Player News

All Player News
  • NO Wide Receiver #10
    For the first time in his career, Smith won’t be a Saint. The sixth-year veteran showed flashes during his time in New Orleans, but injuries have kept him from reaching his full potential. He’ll be looking for a new team as he recovers from a groin injury he suffered in training camp.
  • Running Back #37
    The Vikings have released RB Myles Gaskin.
    The long time Dolphin is a free agent again after not being able to stick with the Vikings. Gaskin has not received a touch this regular season and will now be a free agent.
  • FA Running Back #35
    Jackson, who started Week 1 for the Colts, lands in Cleveland to provide depth at running back. In his Week 1 start he didn’t fare well rushing 13 times for 14 yards and losing two fumbles. The Browns also signed TE Devin Asiasi to the practice squad
  • BAL Linebacker #8
    With Baltimore experiencing multiple injuries on their defense, they turned to a veteran to help plug some holes. Van Noy, 32, played for the Chargers last season, appearing in all 17 games with 13 starts. He recorded five sacks, eight tackles for loss and nine quarterback hits while playing 70 percent of Los Angeles’ defensive snaps. While he will start out on the practice squad, the expectation is the veteran could be elevated to the active roster in a couple weeks if he can quickly get up to speed.
  • NYG Tackle #78
    Thomas was also quick to caution that he has not yet practiced in pads since the Giants just had a walk through so far this week. When the team practices in pads on Thursday, he’ll have a better sense of his availability for Monday night against the Seahawks, but he feels good and is expecting to be out there. Provided that Thomas is able to get back on the field, the team will be able to move Evan Neal back to right tackle and improve the overall performance of an offensive line unit that has really let the team down so far.
  • DET Running Back #5
    On Thursday, Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that Montgomery, who sat out Week Three with a thigh injury, is moving toward getting back in the lineup this week. “Two that are trending the most positive right now would be Decker and D-Mo. Those are the two I’m starting to feel pretty good about,” Campbell said. The Lions will have another walkthrough on Wednesday, but Campbell feeling good about Montgomery right now is a strong sign for his ability to play. If he is able to see the field, Jahmyr Gibbs would likely go back to something closer to his Week 2 usage, while Craig Reynolds would maybe be relegated to a small handful of carries, depending on how Montgomery feels.

  • NYG Running Back #26
    While Barkley didn’t do a lot at practice on Tuesday, the Giants just had a walk through. Afterwards, Daboll was asked about Barkley’s status and said, “He’s really now, I’d say, in the day-to-day category. Feels a lot better today. But we’ll kind of take that all the way throughout the week and see how he improves.” Obviously, Barkley feeling better is a good sign, but there is still a ways to go before he gets back out on the field on Monday night against Seattle. With the Giants sitting at 1-2, they may be inclined to play their star if he’s close, so this is certainly a situation to monitor closely over the next few days.
  • GB Wide Receiver #9
    When he was asked directly about being on the field on Thursday, Watson said, “That’s the plan.” Obviously, players are always a bit more optimistic about their chances to see the field than teams are, and Watson still has two days of work before the Packers will make the final decision, but it’s still good to hear a player say that he is anticipating being on the field. Getting Watson back in the receiving corps alongside Jayden Reed and Romeo Doubs would be big news for Jordan Love and the whole Packers offense on Thursday.
  • Linebacker #8
    Ravens hosted LB Kyle Van Noy for a visit.
    Van Noy, who started 13 games for the Chargers in 2022, seems primed to join the Ravens, who suffered multiple defensive injuries in the team’s Week 3 loss to the Colts. Van Noy, 32, recorded five sacks in 17 games last season.
  • FA Quarterback #19
    After Zach Wilson’s latest disastrous outing in Week 3 against the Patriots, the Jets have to do their due diligence and bring in a free agent quarterback or two. Siemian, who started one game for the Jets in 2019 and got one start for the Bears last season, would be an upgrade over Wilson because he is a professional QB. Jets head coach Robert Saleh re-committed to Wilson after the team’s Week 4 loss.



Is Wilson to blame for the Broncos’ struggles?
Michael Holley and Mike Hill are joined by Jason Johnson to discuss the Denver Broncos' 0-3 start and if quarterback Russell Wilson is to blame for the team's struggles.


The Cardinals signed defensive lineman Roy Lopez to their practice squad last weekend and he mde he move to the active roster on Tuesday.
