With the NFL and the NFL Players Association having reached an agreement on a revised drug policy on Wednesday, Welker is among the players who will be reinstated by the league.

Jonathan Cyprien DB JAC 3 Hrs
Cyprien (concussion) has passed the NFL's concussion protocol and is now cleared to play, Jaguars.com reports.
Cyprien missed last week's game against the Redskins after suffering a concussion in Week 1. Now that he's been cleared to return, Cyprien should start Jacksonville's upcoming game versus the Colts, providing a nice boost to a Jaguars' secondary that has proven to be sub-par through two games thus far.

Lache Seastrunk RB CAR 4 Hrs1 Comment
Seastrunk was signed to the Panthers' practice squad Tuesday, NFL.com reports.
Seastrunk was drafted in the sixth round by the Redskins this year, but failed to make the team's 53-man roster despite a solid preseason showing. In three exhibition appearances, Seastrunk totaled 121 yards on 25 carries and also caught two passes for 88 yards. While he's only on the Panthers' practice squad at the moment, running back Fozzy Whittaker's recent quadriceps injury could open a roster spot in the near future, should Seastrunk impress Carolina's coaching staff.

Odell Beckham WR NYG 10 Hrs
With Jerrel Jernigan out for the year, Beckham (hamstring) could have a significant role not long after he gets healthy.
Granted Beckham is a rookie who missed most of training camp, but the Giants are so thin at receiver, it's likely they'd involve the No. 12 overall pick as soon as it's feasible.
Mark Herzlich LB NYG 11 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.
