Vontaze Burfict LB CIN 16 Hrs1 Comment
Burfict (concussion) didn't practice Monday but expects to play Sunday night.
Before you invest in Burfict on the waiver wires in IDP leagues, make sure he gets back on the practice field first.
Victor Butler LB ARI 17 Hrs
Butler was released by the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Butler missed all of last season while recovering from an ACL tear and failed to make the Saints' roster during training camp. He'll now hit the open market and seek to land with a team in search of veteran help at linebacker.
Teddy Bridgewater QB MIN 17 Hrs
Bridgewater (ankle) sat out a second straight practice Tuesday, NFL.com reports.
Bridgewater is nursing a sprained ankle suffered during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Falcons. Although he's yet to practice since then, Bridgewater has done rehab work in the meantime and is thought to have a decent chance of being ready for Thursday's game versus the Packers. Expect his status to continue to be updated leading up to the Vikings' early Week 5 kickoff.
Chris Williams WR CHI 18 Hrs

Williams has bounced between the Bears' practice squad and active roster throughout this season and is now expected suit up for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Lamar Holmes ATL 18 Hrs
Holmes (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Holmes will now miss the remainder of this season, joining center Joe Hawley (knee) and tackle Sam Baker (knee) as valued offensive linemen on the Falcons' injured reserve list.
Joe Hawley ATL 18 Hrs
Hawley suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN reports.
Hawley has now been placed on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of this season, leaving the Falcons' offensive line without another key contributor.
William Moore DB ATL 18 Hrs
Moore (shoulder) will be placed on the Falcons' injured reserve/designated to return list, ESPN reports.
Moore suffered a serious shoulder injury during Sunday's game and will consequently be ruled out for the foreseeable future, representing a major blow to a Falcons team currently ranked second-last in total defense. The 29-year-old entered this season coming off a career-year that included 86 tackles (67 solo), three interceptions, three forced fumbles, two forced fumbles, two sacks and seven pass defenses last year. Once Moore was forced to exit Sunday's game, second-year player Kemal Ishmael replaced him at strong safety and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan also deployed regular three-safety sets, with rookie Dez Southward joining veteran free safety Dwight Lowery and Ishmael at the back.
Carson Palmer QB ARI 18 Hrs
Palmer's (shoulder) nerve issue didn't progress as quickly as he hoped it would over the Cardinals Week 4 bye, NFL.com reports.
Palmer believed last week that he would definitely be ready to start Sunday's game against the Broncos, but after Arizona's bye week, the quarterback doesn't sound as optimistic. According to coach Bruce Arians, Wednesday's practice will be key in determining Palmer's status for this weekend. As a result, a better indication on Palmer's availability should come later this week, although backup Drew Stanton will be prepared to make a third straight start, should Palmer be ruled out.
Jimmy Garoppolo QB NE 18 Hrs
After the Chiefs took a 41-7 lead in the fourth quarter of Monday night's game, Garoppolo replaced starting QB Tom Brady and completed 6-of-7 passes for 70 yards and a 13-yard touchdown to Rob Gronkowski, the Boston Herald reports.
Garoppolo looked sharp in garbage time Monday, while gaining some valuable regular season experience, but he remains a Brady injury away from anything other than spot duty for the Patriots.
Shiloh Keo DB HOU 18 Hrs
Keo (calf) was cut by the Texans on Tuesday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Keo is yet to play this season and will be replaced on the Texans' roster by Josh Aubrey.
