Football Morning in America

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

Latest Player News

All Player News
  • CAR Wide Receiver #15
    Mingo suffered the concussion in the third quarter of Carolina’s Week 3 game against the Seahawks. A limited session to open the week gives him a shot at taking the field in Week 4. He will need to get in at least one full practice before being cleared. If active, Mingo will rank as a WR5 versus the Vikings.
  • CAR Quarterback #9
    Young missed Week 3 with the ankle issue, but a full practice to open the week gives him a strong shot at returning in Week 4. Andy Dalton filled in for Young admirably versus the Seahawks, amassing 361 yards and two scores in a losing effort. Still, Panthers head coach Frank Reich isn’t keeping Young on the bench if he is healthy. Young will rank as a low-end QB2 versus the Vikings in Week 4.
  • CHI Safety #4
    Jackson left Week 2 with an injury and wasn’t able to suit up on Sunday against the Chiefs. If he was out on Monday, it would be a tough blow to a Bears secondary that has already struggled to start the year. CB Jaylon Johnson also missed practice with a hamstring injury, which further complicates Chicago’s ability to cover Jerry Jeudy and Marvin Mims if neither player is able to play on Monday night.
  • TEN Tackle #77
    Skoronski has missed two games because of the appendectomy and is likely to sit out for Week 4 as well. After beginning his career as a special athlete, Ryan Tannehill, now 35 years old, is looking more statue-like every week. Skoronski’s continued absence will remain a problem for the Titans’ efforts to keep Tannehill upright in Week 4 against the Bengals.
  • TEN Wide Receiver #10
    Hopkins got in a full practice session last Wednesday before being downgraded to a DNP by Friday. Though Hopkins may not be at full strength, it looks like any missed practice time is by design to manage his workload throughout the week. Barring any setbacks, he should be able to play through the ankle issue indefinitely.
  • BAL Running Back #43
    Hill missed practice all last week and was unable to play on Sunday as well. His running mate, Gus Edwards, was able to return to practice on Wednesday after suffering a concussion scare, so it looks like Edwards could be the clear lead back on Sunday against the Browns with Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake mixing in behind him.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #7
    Bateman came into Sunday’s game with some hamstring tightness and was held to just one catch on three targets for six yards in the loss to the Colts. His inability to practice on Wednesday is then a bit of a concern, but there is still time for him to get back on the field before Sunday. Bateman had seen an upside in snaps and routes in each of the first three weeks, running 65% of routes on Sunday. With Odell Beckham Jr. also sidelined on Wednesday, it could open up more opportunities for rookie Zay Flowers and veteran Nelson Agholor on Sunday against the Browns.
  • BAL Wide Receiver #3
    Beckham Jr. also missed last week’s game with the ankle injury, and was not able to return for the first practice of the week. OBJ is a veteran and likely doesn’t need more than one limited practice to be able to play on Sunday, but he’s starting off the week behind the curve.
  • BAL Tackle #79
    Both Stanley and center Tyler Linderbaum (ankle) were able to suit up for practice after missing two consecutive games. Obviously, how they respond to their first practice action in two weeks will go a long way towards determining their availability for Monday, but having both active would be a major boost for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense against this elite Browns defensive line.
  • BAL Running Back #35
    Edwards left the game late in the fourth quarter and was being evaluated for a concussion. The fact that he’s able to practice on Wednesday is a pretty good indication that he didn’t suffer one. With Edwards looking likely to return against the Browns, Melvin Gordon and Kenyan Drake will return to clear back-up roles.
