9/27/2016 Joique Bell, Det, RB
The Bears signed Bell on Tuesday.

Analysis: Bell played in 68 games, notching 2,235 yards on 561 attempts with 22 rushing touchdowns with the Eagles (2010), Colts (2010) and Lions (2012-15). He also has 161 receptions for 1,640 yards and one touchdown.
9/27/2016 Michael Griffin, Car, S
The Panthers signed Griffin on Tuesday.

Analysis: Griffin was a Pro Bowl selection with the Titans in 2008 and 2010. He has 25 interceptions in 141 career regular-season games (133 starts).
9/27/2016 Jordan Gay, Buf, K
The Buffalo Bills released kicker Jordan Gay, the team announced Tuesday.

Analysis: Gay had been used only on kickoffs, and the Bills apparently will now let place-kicker Dan Carpenter handle the kickoff duties as well as the place-kicking chores.
9/27/2016 Kyle Fuller, Chi, CB
The Bears placed Fuller on injured reserve Tuesday. He could be recalled from IR, with rules requiring he miss at least six weeks. Fuller would not be eligible to return for eight games.

Analysis: Fuller, a first-round pick in 2014 with a history of injuries, missed the first three games after having arthroscopic knee surgery and being limited most of the summer.
9/27/2016 John Sullivan, Was, C
The Redskins signed Sullivan on Tuesday after placing starting center Kory Lichtensteiger on injured reserve.

Analysis: Sullivan was released by the Vikings on Aug. 30 in a somewhat surprising move that ended his eight-year tenure with the team. He missed last season because of a back injury.
9/27/2016 Kory Lichtensteiger, Was, C
The Redskins put Lichtensteiger (calf) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Lichtensteiger has now appeared in just eight games over the last two seasons due to injuries.
9/27/2016 Jimmy Garoppolo, NE, QB
Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett were both in uniform as the Patriots went back to the practice field on Tuesday.

Analysis: Garoppolo missed last week's game against Houston with a throwing shoulder injury that occurred during the second quarter of the New England's win over the Miami Dolphins on Sept. 18. Garoppolo didn't have any visible braces or bandages on his shoulder in the locker room or once he was on the field. It's unclear if either QB will be ready for Sunday's game against the Bills.
9/27/2016 Jacoby Brissett, NE, QB
Jimmy Garoppolo and Brissett were both in uniform as the Patriots went back to the practice field on Tuesday.

Analysis: It's unclear if either will be ready for Sunday's game against the Bills. "I've never seen so many people looking at my hand," Brissett said with a chuckle on his way to his locker. Brissett didn't have any coverings on his thumb at the time, and could be seen both texting with the thumb and using it to lace up his cleats. But later at practice he did have tape on his thumb and wrist as he stretched.
9/27/2016 Tyler Eifert, Cin, TE
Although he was inactive for Sunday's game against Denver, Eifert could be available on a limited basis on Thursday night against the Dolphins.

Analysis: The Pro Bowl tight end told reporters on Tuesday that he had no discomfort coming off his first week of practice since offseason ankle surgery, and that it was up to the coaches how much he plays on Thursday, if at all.
9/27/2016 Laquon Treadwell, Min, WR
Treadwell has barely seen the field while several other rookies are making names for themselves in the first few weeks of the NFL season.

Analysis: Selected with the 23rd overall pick of the 2016 draft, Treadwell remained on the sideline in the season opener, played on only two snaps the following week and was listed as inactive in Sunday's 22-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers. Unfortunately, he's just not a fantasy option at this point.
9/27/2016 Trent Cole, Ind, LB
The Colts put outside Cole on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Cole is in the final year of a two-year deal he signed last season and had been dealing with an injured back, though he was credited with one tackle in Sunday's 26-22 victory over San Diego. He has 88 1/2 career sacks in 12 NFL seasons.
9/27/2016 Jay Cutler, Chi, QB
Cutler missed Week 3 at Dallas with a sprained thumb, but the Chicago Bears are not holding the starting quarterback job for him during what is expected to be a 2-3 week recovery.

Analysis: A thumb injury was a factor in multiple turnovers Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles, Cutler said, because it impacted his grip. He has five turnovers, or one for every 5.6 completions (28) this season.
9/27/2016 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
The Cowboys are still working through testing with Bryant, who had a sprained right knee Sunday but played start to finish against the Bears. Owner Jerry Jones said no MRI exam was conducted Monday but could order the test Tuesday if Bryant's knee is swollen or inflamed.

Analysis: Bryant was injured in the first quarter but returned to catch three passes for 40 yards, including his first touchdown of the season. "He certainly finished the game out, and that in and of itself is a good indication," Jones said. "It doesn't mean that he's going to be free of the symptoms or the injury, but, again, we may look at an MRI before this day is over."
9/27/2016 Mohamed Sanu, Atl, WR
Sanu exited Monday's game at New Orleans late in the first half with a shoulder injury and did not return.

Analysis: Sanu, Atlanta's No. 2 receiver, had three catches for 31 yards before departing and has recorded 11 receptions with one touchdown through the first three weeks. Expect the Falcons to further update his status in the coming days.
9/26/2016 Shane Vereen, NYG, RB
Vereen is out for at least eight weeks with a torn triceps.

Analysis: Vereen started Sunday with Rashad Jennings (hand) inactive and rushed for 67 yards on 11 carries with a touchdown.
9/26/2016 Thomas Rawls, Sea, RB
Rawls has been diagnosed with an injury to the fibula in his left leg and will be out a few weeks.

Analysis: Rawls missed Sunday's game against the 49ers after leaving Seattle's Week 2 game with a shin injury.
9/26/2016 Russell Wilson, Sea, QB
Wilson has a sprained MCL in his left knee. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said during his weekly radio show on KIRO-AM on Monday morning that Wilson "feels great" and that his recovery is already going "exceedingly well."

Analysis: Wilson underwent an MRI on Sunday night that confirmed the ligament sprain and Wilson received treatment all night, Carroll said. Carroll acknowledged there is a consideration of sitting Wilson this week at the New York Jets with the Seahawks bye coming in Week 5, but also said it's difficult trying to keep Wilson off the field.
9/26/2016 Jordan Cameron, Mia, TE
Cameron was ruled out of Thursday's game at Cincinnati with a concussion.

Analysis: Cameron, 28, had seven catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in the first three games. He was injured in the second quarter of Sunday's overtime win against the Cleveland Browns and evaluated for a concussion. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said Cameron, who was plagued by concussions with the Browns before joining Miami in free agency. He had three documented concussions in his first four seasons and missed several games in 2014 while recovering from a severe head injury.
9/26/2016 DeAngelo Hall, Was, S
Hall is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Analysis: Hall went down after colliding with a teammate trying to make a tackle in the second quarter. He said Redskins doctors, including James Andrews, told him "it kind of feels like you tore your ACL." Tests confirmed the injury. It's the second time in three seasons Hall suffered a season-ending injury. In 2014, he ruptured his Achilles.
9/26/2016 Manti Te'o, SD, LB
Te'o is out for the season with a torn Achilles.

Analysis: Te'o was injured on non-contact play with 4:45 remaining in the first quarter of the Chargers' loss at Indianapolis on Sunday. Dropping in coverage and retreating to his right, Te'o collapsed 10 yards away from the ball and immediately grabbed his left shin and calf area. The Chargers confirmed Monday Te'o suffered a torn Achilles and will require surgery.
