Gooden was signed to the Lions' active 53-man roster on Saturday, James Palmer of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the wake of OLBs DeAndre Levy (quadriceps) and Antwione Williams (hamstring) being ruled out for the Lions' divisional showdown with the Packers on Sunday, Detroit only had two healthy outside linebackers left standing. Wideout Aaron Dobson was released to make room.

Dobson was released by the Lions on Saturday, James Palmer of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Lions only had two healthy outside linebackers on their roster entering their Week 3 matchup against the Packers. So, the team promoted LB Zaviar Gooden from the practice squad in order to add depth at the position, and Dobson's roster spot was evidently needed to do so. Dobson was just signed to the team on Tuesday and thus didn't appear in a game with Detroit.

Asante Cleveland
TE SD (11)

Cleveland was signed to the Chargers' active roster on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

With starting tight end Antonio Gates considered doubtful to play on Sunday, the Chargers' evidently felt they needed more help at the tight end position, waiving RB Andre Williams to make room. If Gates is ultimately ruled out, Cleveland will slot in behind Hunter Henry and Sean McGrath on the tight end depth chart.

Andre Williams
RB SD (11)

Williams was released by the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Williams was a healthy scratch in each of the Chargers' first two games. His release effectively clears room for the addition of TE Asante Cleveland from the team's practice squad and leaves San Diego with only two healthy running backs behind starter Melvin Gordon.

OUTBen Koyack
TE JAC (5)

Koyack (knee) underwent successful surgery to repair the tear in his meniscus on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Koyack went down during Wednesday's practice, but it wasn't immediately clear whether his injury would require surgery. The Jaguars didn't place the tight end on injured reserve, however, so they may be holding out hope for Koyack to return at another point in the 2016 campaign.

OUTEddie Goldman
DL CHI (9)

Goldman (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Chicago's Week 3 game against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Goldman isn't expected back until Week 7. Meanwhile, fellow defensive lineman Will Sutton projects to be the Bears' starting nose tackle.

OUTKa'Deem Carey
RB CHI (9)
14 hours ago

Carey (hamstring) will not play in the Bears' matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Carey, who exited Chicago's Week 2 game with a hamstring injury, was considered doubtful to play after Friday's practice. His confirmed absence likely spells an increased workload for rookie Jordan Howard.

OUTPaul Worrilow
LB ATL (11)

Worrilow (groin) has been ruled out for the Falcons' Week 3 matchup against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Worrilow underwent groin surgery on Thursday and is not expected to return until Week 7.

WR ATL (11)

Sanu (ankle) will play in the Falcons' Monday night game against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

While Sanu did not practice on Thursday, he was able to increase his participation in a limited capacity on Friday before practicing in full on Saturday. Consequently, the Atlanta coaching staff gave him the green light to play in the team's divisional showdown against New Orleans, where the loser of which will likely enter Week 4 as the last-placed team in the NFC South.

Brooks Reed
LB ATL (11)

Reed (shoulder) will play on Monday night.

EDGE Analysis

Reed was unable to play last weekend after sustaining a shoulder injury in Atlanta's season opener. While he remained limited in practice this week, he appears poised to reclaim his starting role against the Saints.
