Mark Herzlich LB NYG 16 Hrs
With Jon Beason went down, Herzlich saw snaps at middle linebacker Sunday.
Herzlich didn't acquit himself particularly well, and Jameel McClain is more likely to inherit Beason's role for now.
Jameel McClain LB NYG 16 Hrs
McClain could see work at middle linebacker with Jon Beason out.
Mark Herzlich saw snaps at the position after Beason went down Sunday, but didn't play especially well. Should McClain fill the role, he'd be a decent source of tackles in deeper IDP leagues.
Matt Asiata RB MIN 17 Hrs27 Comments
With Adrian Peterson out for Week 3, Asiata should again draw the start Sunday.
Asiata is slow, but he's got good size and was useful as a receiver out of the backfield last week.
Adrian Peterson RB MIN 17 Hrs12 Comments
The Vikings have apparently changed their minds and suspended Peterson for Week 3, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. "After giving the situation additional thought, we have decided this is the appropriate course of action for the organization and for Adrian," Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf said in the statement.
Matt Asiata should draw the start again, and at this point Peterson seems to be out indefinitely.
Sammy Seamster DB MIA 19 Hrs
Seamster was placed on IR with a shoulder injury on Monday, according to the Dolphins web site.
Seamster was claimed off waivers from the Ravens before the season started but was nothing more than secondary depth.
LaMichael James RB SF 19 Hrs
James worked out with the Dolphins on Tuesday, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.
The Dolphins are a little light at running back right now with Knowshon Moreno (elbow) out for 4-8 weeks and Lamar Miller (ankle) day to day. James left without a contract however but could be an option later on this season.
Ron Parker DB KC 22 Hrs
Parker recorded seven tackles against the Broncos on Sunday.
Parker and Marcus Cooper were charged with covering Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders on Sunday, and the seven tackles came largely on the eight receptions by Sanders. Parker now has 13 tackles through two games, however, making him someone to look at in IDP leagues despite his lack of interceptions.
Tamba Hali LB KC 22 Hrs
Hali recorded four tackles (four solo) and a sack against the Broncos on Sunday.
Hali and Justin Houston are the leaders of the linebacking corps following injuries to both of the starting inside linebackers, and Hali showed off his pass-rushing skills by getting to and sacking Peyton Manning, who is rarely taken down.
John Abraham LB ARI 22 Hrs1 Comment
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Abraham did not pass his concussion test Tuesday.
Though Abraham rejoined the Cardinals on Tuesday after briefly pondering retirement, it doesn't appear likely that he'll be sufficiently recovered from the concussion in time for Sunday's Week 3 tilt with the 49ers. The Cardinals will have a bye the week after, which could allow Abraham to return to action in Week 5, resulting in him missing just two games. Any return, however, will be contingent on Abraham ultimately passing all concussion tests. It's certainly not a given with the 36-year-old complaining of memory loss after his most recent head injury.
Donnie Avery WR KC 22 Hrs
Avery had three catches for 14 yards against the Broncos on Sunday.
Avery is back to his number two role in Kansas City behind Dwayne Bowe, and will likely see limited production in a run-heavy offense. With Travis Kelce and Anthony Fasano also being used in the passing game, Avery will likely see limited targets going forward.
