QVance McDonald
TE SF (8)

McDonald did not return to Sunday's game after injuring his hip, Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

There is some speculation that McDonald's injury could jeopardize his availability for next week's game, but that won't be known for sure until later this week.

DeMarco Murray
RB TEN (13)
3 hours ago

Murray rushed 16 times for 114 yards and a touchdown, and added five catches for 41 more in Sunday's 17-10 loss to Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Murray was by far the most productive member of a Titans offense that otherwise struggled to produce against a Raiders defense that came in allowing 34.5 points per game. Rookie Derrick Henry siphoned off 10 carries, but it was the veteran that converted from five yards out for Tennessee's first rushing touchdown of the season. With a major role as a receiver out of the backfield as well, Murray is asserting himself as a well-rounded weapon for the Titans after coming over in an offseason trade with Philadelphia.

OUTLawrence Timmons
LB PIT (8)
3 hours ago

Timmons (shin) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest.

EDGE Analysis

Timmons was actually transported a local hospital for a closer look at his injured shin. The severity is unknown, but it's not too often that players are taken to a hospital for a shin injury. Timmons' ailment is something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.

Marcus Mariota
QB TEN (13)
3 hours ago

Mariota threw for 214 yards and two interceptions while completing 17 of 33 passes Sunday against the Raiders. He also added 22 rushing yards on three carries in a 17-10 loss.

EDGE Analysis

The Mariota-led Titans offense is averaging a measly 14.0 points per game through three weeks, and this seemingly friendly matchup at home against a Raiders defense that came in allowing 34.5 points per game surprisingly didn't help. He did lead a second-half touchdown drive, but it was capped by DeMarco Murray's first rushing score of the season. Despite an offseason makeover, the dearth of weapons in Tennessee's passing game is still a major problem, especially with tight end Delanie Walker (hamstring) out.

Demaryius Thomas
WR DEN (11)
3 hours ago

Thomas hauled in six of seven targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Bengals. He lost a fumble during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

The game was just Thomas' second 100-yard performance in 15 games, including the playoffs. The star receiver questioned why he wasn't being included in the offense more and quarterback Trevor Siemian responded by giving it to Thomas and fellow receiver Emmanuel Sanders deep - including a 55-yard touchdown strike for Thomas. The game portends good things to come for Thomas as the team has some favorable match ups on the horizon, though he trails Sanders in catches and targets through three weeks.

QJimmie Ward
DB SF (8)

Ward (quadriceps) will not return to Sunday's action, Doug Farrar of Bleacher Report reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ward's injury will certainly impact a San Francisco secondary that is already pretty thin. It'll be interesting to see if he can come back for next week's contest.

Alshon Jeffery
WR CHI (9)
3 hours ago

Jeffery (knee) is listed as active Sunday in Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

A knee injury forced Jeffery to follow a limited/DNP/limited practice schedule this week, but despite the cap in reps, he'll suit up in Week 3. Like typical starter Jay Cutler, who's sidelined with a right thumb sprain, Brian Hoyer should consider Jeffery his No. 1 option in the passing attack.

OUTJay Cutler
QB CHI (9)
3 hours ago

Cutler (thumb) is inactive for Sunday's game in Dallas

EDGE Analysis

Taking a week-to-week approach with Cutler's right thumb sprain, the Bears have included the quarterback among their inactives Sunday. Cutler will thus hand the reins of the offense to eight-year veteran Brian Hoyer.

C.J. Anderson
RB DEN (11)
3 hours ago

Anderson rushed for 37 yards on 14 carries and caught just one of four targets for four yards in Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

The Bengals didn't give Anderson much room to work with on Sunday as the Broncos, instead, chose to air it out in the win. Anderson's still clearly the top back, no other ball carrier coming within 10 carries of him, but it was telling that head coach Gary Kubiak chose to pass for two touchdowns inside the seven yard-line, Anderson's typical stomping grounds, and run quarterback Trevor Siemian on an unsuccessful sweep on a two-point try. Anderson has a tough test coming up next week against Tampa Bay, but should be counted on for a rebound performance.

QLawrence Thomas
DL NYJ (11)
3 hours ago

Thomas (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's action, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Little is known regarding the severity of Thomas' injury, but his status for Week 4 will likely become clearer as next week progresses.
