  • CHI Quarterback #14
    Peterman was a free agent for less than 24 hours before the Bears opted to bring him back. Now back on the 53-man roster, Peterman will presumably serve as the Bears No. 2 quarterback behind Justin Fields in Week 3 against the Buccaneers.
  • NYG Wide Receiver #17
    Robinson has been out since last season with a torn ACL. The Giants slot receiver will finally make his second-year debut on Thursday Night Football against the 49ers. Robinson caught 23 passes for 227 yards as a rookie prior to his injury and while he won’t carry fantasy relevancy immediately, he could develop into a flex play later in the season.
  • SF Defensive Back #20
    Thomas was listed as questionable after nursing a knee injury. He will now return for the 49ers’ Thursday Night matchup against the Giants.
  • SEA Tackle #67
    Cross was carted off the field in Week 1 against the Rams, missing Week 2 against the Lions. Last week, head coach Pete Carroll had said Cross had a chance to return in Week 3, but a DNP in the first practice of the week keeps him off track for that. Geno Smith took only one sack in Week 2, yet could face more pressure against the Panthers in Week 3.
  • SEA Cornerback #8
    In addition to Bryant, CB Tariq Woolen (chest) and S Julian Love (hamstring) also missed practice. Woolen was already reported to likely miss Week 3 and Bryant and Love’s injuries leave Seattle’s secondary thin. The team promoted CB Artie Burns from its practice squad to remedy the injuries for a Week 3 matchup against the Panthers.
  • MIN Running Back #3
    Akers heads to Minnesota, where he will compete with Alexander Mattison for touches. He recently was put in trade talks by the Rams after he was a healthy scratch for Week 2. Akers has seemingly been halfway out of Los Angeles since last season and now the Rams officially move on to Kyren Williams. The Vikings add Akers hoping to electrify a run game to supplement a top-tier passing game.
  • MIA Wide Receiver #10
    Hill did not show a major indication of injury Week 2 against the Patriots, implying that this is more of a precautionary measure. Fellow WR Jaylen Waddle missed practice due to concussion, meaning Hill has a chance to see increased targets for Week 3. For now, Hill’s ankle is worth monitoring, but he still seems on track to play in Week 3 against the Broncos.
  • PIT Safety #39
    Fitzpatrick reportedly suffered a chest contusion in the Steelers’ Week 2 win over the Browns. He was admitted to a hospital after leaving the game with the chest injury and was released the following morning. An a DNP to start the week puts him on the wrong side of questionable for Week 3.
  • MIN Center #56
    Bradbury did not play last week and isn’t able to practice to start this week, so it’s likely he will miss another game because of the back issue. Linebacker Marcus Davenport also missed Wednesday’s practice. He sat out Week 1 and played on just five snaps in Week 2 before re-aggravating his ankle injury.
  • LAC Linebacker #97
    Bosa practiced once last week before being listed as questionable. He ultimately played through the hamstring issue and totaled two sacks plus two TFLs. The downside is that he was on the field for just 19 snaps. Even when limited, Bosa is elite, but it will be impossible for him to sustain that kind of production on such a limited role. Expect the Chargers to slowly ramp up his reps over the next few weeks in an effort to prevent his hamstring issue from worsening.
