Arthur Jones DL IND 4 Hrs
Jones (ankle) will likely miss 2-to-4 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Tests taken Tuesday confirmed that Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain in Monday's loss to the Eagles. Barring any setbacks, he should resume playing sometime in October.
Danny Gorrer DB TB 5 Hrs
Gorrer agreed to a contract with the Lions on Tuesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports.
Gorrer earned a roster spot with an "impressive" workout Tuesday. He will provide some cornerback depth for a Lions team that just placed Nevin Lawson (foot) on injured reserve.
Corey Graham DB BUF 5 Hrs
Coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday the Bills are going to continue rotating their top three corners - Graham, Stephon Gilmore, and Leodis McKelvin - during games provided all three are healthy, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Marrone, "All three (are starters). I'm not trying to play games. We've been rotating them from day one since they've been back. I keep saying the same thing. Everyone is trying to pin, �Who are the two (starters)? Who are the two (starters)?' But we've got a pretty good deal going if we have three guys ... I firmly believe, with the level that they're playing, that those three players will produce more than if it's just two."
Graham, whom the Bills signed via free agency this past offseason, actually has the most playing time of the three corners so far with 91 percent of the defensive snaps. That may go down a bit as Gilmore gets healthier, though Graham's strong play has at least earned him a share of the starting rotation. Through two games, Graham has 13 total tackles, six passes defensed, and an interception - not bad at all for a guy expected to be the No. 3 corner.
Stephon Gilmore DB BUF 5 Hrs
Coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday the Bills are going to continue rotating their top three corners - Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, and Corey Graham - during games provided all three are healthy, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Marrone, "All three (are starters). I'm not trying to play games. We've been rotating them from day one since they've been back. I keep saying the same thing. Everyone is trying to pin, �Who are the two (starters)? Who are the two (starters)?' But we've got a pretty good deal going if we have three guys ... I firmly believe, with the level that they're playing, that those three players will produce more than if it's just two."
In Sunday's win over Miami - Gilmore's first action this season after missing Week 1 with a groin injury - Graham was on the field for 72 of 79 defensive plays, Gilmore for 53, and McKelvin for 33. It looks like, assuming full health for all three, that Marrone will keep a regular rotation with the biggest share going to the one playing the best. This is a fantastic idea for the Bills, though it does give both Gilmore and McKelvin a slight IDP hit, as both were previously expected to be full-fledged starters.
Matthew Mulligan TE CHI 5 Hrs
Mulligan was released by the Bears on Tuesday.
Mulligan's release leaves the Bears with just one tight end, but apparently the team is not concerned. Mulligan has appeared in 65 NFL games, so he could get a look with a team looking for tight end depth.
Shaun Draughn RB CHI 5 Hrs
Draughn was released by the Bears on Tuesday.
Draughn did not see any work in the Bears' first two games, and his release indicates the team is confident that Ka'Deem Carey can handle the backup duties behind Matt Forte.
James Anderson LB NE 5 Hrs
Anderson agreed to a contract with the Titans on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.
Anderson, who was released by the Patriots in late August, was signed to add linebacker depth with Zach Brown (shoulder) landing on injured reserve.
Zach Brown LB TEN 5 Hrs
The Titans placed Brown (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.
Tuesday's move was primarily procedural, as it had already been announced that Brown's season was over. The Titans signed fellow linebacker James Anderson to take Brown's place on the roster.
Julian Talley WR NYG 5 Hrs
The Giants promoted Talley to the active roster Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.
Talley was added from the practice squad to take the roster spot of Jerrel Jernigan (foot), who was placed on injured reserve. He will slot in as the sixth receiver on the Giants' depth chart, or fifth if Odell Beckham (hamstring) is omitted. Either way, his fantasy impact will likely be minimal.
Antonio Cromartie DB ARI 5 Hrs
Cromartie recorded three tackles and a pass defended during Sunday's victory versus the Giants at New York.
In Week 2, Cromartie rarely took a breather, taking the field for 70-of-72 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. At some point in his first season in the Arizona desert, he'll almost certainly contribute in the interception column working opposite Patrick Peterson, but through two games, Cromartie has just six tackles (five solo) and no other counting stats. Nonetheless, Cromartie's track record -- he's averaged three per season since picking off 10 in 2007 -- should keep him in the hearts and minds of IDP owners for the time being.
