  Titans | Jake Locker remains starter    Sun Sep 21, 06:19 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker remains the starting quarterback, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sunday, Sept. 21, that he never considered benching Locker despite a lopsided loss in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He said Locker is his quarterback, and the coach will be patient with him.

Footballguys view: That Whisenhunt is having to answer these questions is in and of itself a sign that Locker's status is getting shakier. The Titans only have journeyman Charlie Whitehurst or rookie Zach Mettenberger to turn to, so Locker is protected a bit by the poor shape of his position on the Titans depth chart.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater to start Week 4    Sun Sep 21, 05:44 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater will take over as the team's starting quarterback in Week 4 after QB Matt Cassel (foot) suffered fractured bones in his foot in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.

  Vikings | Matt Cassel has broken foot    Sun Sep 21, 05:44 PM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (foot) has several fractured bones in his foot, head coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday, Sept. 21, after the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: The Teddy Bridgewater era is here. The passing game can't get any worse with the rookie, but it could improve against a Falcons defense that was struggling until they ambushed the Bucs this week.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles to start Week 4    Sun Sep 21, 05:42 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said Sunday, Sept. 21, that QB Blake Bortles will start in Week 4 against the San Diego Chargers.

Footballguys view: Bortles might not be worth a start against the Chargers, who tend to shorten games, but he is worth a pickup after how the offense came alive under his command - even thought it was garbage time. Heck, Bortles may see a lot of that this year on this Jaguars team.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer to sit out    Sun Sep 21, 03:01 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

Footballguys view: Palmer's timeline to return is still indefinite as nerve injury healing is difficult to predict.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles enters game    Sun Sep 21, 02:45 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles entered the team's Week 3 game in the second half after QB Chad Henne was benched.

Footballguys view: Bortles running ability alone puts him instantly on the fantasy radar, but he does have a poor offensive line and green, oft injured wide receiver corps.

  Vikings | Matt Cassel carted off    Sun Sep 21, 01:52 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (toe) was carted off the field in Week 3 after suffering a toe injury. He is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Teddy Bridgewater is in, and depending on his performance today and the severity of Cassel's injury, it might be a while until we see Cassel again.

The Detroit Lions have declared CB Cassius Vaughn, SS James Ihedigbo, QB Kellen Moore, OT LaAdrian Waddle, RB Montell Owens, WR Ryan Broyles, LB Travis Lewis inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Garrett Reynolds will start on the right side of the offensive line, so that spot will be attacked by the Packers, as backup DE Mario Addison had multiple sacks for the Panthers going against Reynolds last week.

The Oakland Raiders have declared CB Chimdi Chekwa, QB Matt Schaub, OT Matt McCants, RB Maurice Jones-Drew, LB Nick Roach, LB Sio Moore, OG Tony Bergstrom inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Darren McFadden gets the start for Jones-Drew. The Raiders are down two starting linebackers, so Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen's jobs are easier - maybe Rob Gronkowski too.

Footballguys view: Kendricks being out will help the Washington offense, especially Niles Paul and Alfred Morris. He is probably the Eagles' best defensive player.

  Rams | Austin Davis likely to start    Sun Sep 21, 11:12 AM

St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis is likely to start Sunday, Sept. 21, against the Dallas Cowboys. QB Shaun Hill (thigh) is likely out.

Footballguys view: Davis looked solid for a backup last week, and if he can win this week, he could earn another start in Week 5 after the Rams bye, despite Jeff Fisher's protestations that Hill is the starter when healthy.

  Colts | Andrew Luck not sharing the wealth    Sat Sep 20, 09:11 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has targeted WR T.Y. Hilton 22 times and WR Reggie Wayne 20 times in two games this year, and RB Ahmad Bradshaw ranks third on the team with 12 targets. Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said he believes Luck will begin targeting the teams other receivers and tight ends as the season goes on.

  49ers | One Niner promoted, one cut    Sat Sep 20, 05:02 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Asante Cleveland was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Sept. 20. QB Josh X. Johnson was released.

Footballguys view: Johnson has had several stops in the NFL, and he's just not going to make it. With the 49ers, he was reunited with former college coach (with the San Diego Torreros) Jim Harbaugh. If Harbaugh is giving up on him, then Johnson's fantasy stock in super deep dynasty leagues is done.

  Buccaneers | Josh McCown to meet with doctor    Sat Sep 20, 12:02 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) is scheduled to meet with a specialist Monday, Sept. 22, to have his severely sprained thumb examined. He likely will not be able to play in Week 4.

Footballguys view: McCown was awful prior to the injury Thursday night. If he is fine to come back, or the injury doesn't take long to heal, Glennon might still be a better option. Either way the offense is now going to be a complete concern.

  NFL | Tajh Boyd signs with FXFL     Sat Sep 20, 03:19 AM

Former New York Jets QB Tajh Boyd, who also tried out with the New York Giants, has signed with the Florida Blacktips of the Fall Experimental Football League.

Footballguys view: So much for the first-round draft status Boyd had just a year ago at Clemson. He failed to make an impression during camp, and he'll have to play in other leagues if he wants to keep playing.

  Buccaneers | Josh McCown out several weeks    Fri Sep 19, 08:46 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) is undergoing a second test on the thumb injury he suffered in Week 3. He is expected to miss several weeks.

Footballguys view: Mike Glennon will get his chance to vanquish McCown if he can turn this dumpsterfire around. Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans outlooks both improve. Glennon was actually very good for a rookie quarterback and he should be a more dynamic passer than McCown was, especially with the return of offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford to playcalling which will likely come next week at Pittsburgh.

  Cardinals | Carson Palmer could serve as backup    Fri Sep 19, 05:53 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) will be the backup to QB Drew Stanton in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers if he can play Sunday, Sept. 21. If Palmer can't play, QB Logan Thomas will serve as the backup to Stanton. Palmer has made progress this week, but not enough to start. Head coach Bruce Arians said Palmer still can't throw.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo likely will play    Fri Sep 19, 04:29 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: There were whispers and worries about Romo earlier this week, but he looks good to go for the game at St. Louis. He's not a good start until he looks like the Romo of years past, and not the weak passer of Weeks 1 and 2.

  Cardinals | Drew Stanton will get start    Fri Sep 19, 03:40 PM

Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton will be the starting quarterback in the team's Week 3 game, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Carson Palmer must not be close to playing for this to be declared so early. The Cardinals need to hope that Stanton and co. can pull out the win and sent them to the bye at 3-0 with a hopefully healing starting QB.

  Buccaneers | Josh McCown to start if healthy    Fri Sep 19, 02:47 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (thumb) will start Week 4 if he is healthy enough to play, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: Of course Lovie will go with the choice to attempt to prove that his obviously wrong decision to put this team in the hands of the journeyman was right all along. Against a Steelers defense that is on a string of six straight bad quarters, maybe he'll get some temporary vindication, but Mike Glennon's time is coming soon in Tampa.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins a pocket passer    Fri Sep 19, 12:43 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is more of a pocket passer than QB Robert Griffin III, and Cousins sees the field better. Cousins kept the team out of danger in Week 2 by quickly throwing the ball at a receiver's feet with a rusher in his face instead of trying to force the ball downfield like Griffin has frequently done. Cousins may not be as dangerous as Griffin in zone-read plays, but Cousins has shown he can make good, quick decisions in the pocket after going through his progressions quickly.

Footballguys view: The question of whether Cousins can play well enough to give Jay Gruden pause before re-installing Griffin as the starter will be one of the most compelling of the first half of the season. The first big chapter comes this week at Philadelphia.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford not forcing it to Megatron    Fri Sep 19, 12:26 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford hasn't been forcing the ball to WR Calvin Johnson, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Caldwell said the fact that Stafford has targeted Johnson 24 times, way more than any other receiver on the team, just shows that the team wants to get the ball to their best weapons as often as possible. "I think if it hadn't been for the interception (Stafford threw Sunday), nobody would even say a word about whether or not they think that he's forcing the ball to Calvin," Caldwell continued. "And that was on a deep post pattern, and really he had exactly what we were looking for, you can see Calvin starting to run by both guys, and (Matthew) just had to get it out there a little bit more. That was the only issue."

  Rams | Shaun Hill a game-time decision    Fri Sep 19, 09:39 AM

  Panthers | Cam Newton won't be 100 percent    Fri Sep 19, 09:25 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ribs, ankle) is unlikely to be 100 percent the rest of the season. He experiences pain the night after the games and receives treatment the next two days in hopes of practicing every Wednesday. Head coach Ron Rivera said Newton's ankle bothered him more than the ribs. However, Newton said neither injury was worse than the other.

Footballguys view: Newton didn't look like a player bothered by his injuries in Week 2's win over Detroit, even though he did absorb some big hits from the bullies on the Lions defensive line. He is still a great start against the Steelers in Week 3.

  Buccaneers | No timetable yet on Josh McCown    Fri Sep 19, 03:15 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said it is too soon to tell how long QB Josh McCown (thumb) may be out following his thumb injury suffered Thursday, Sept. 18, in a 56-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Smith also didn't address whether or not QB Mike Glennon might get a chance to start at quarterback even if McCown is healthy.

Footballguys view: McCown has kept the Bucs offense stuck in neutral. Mike Glennon is much better suited to harness the abilities of the twin towers, Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans, and if the Bucs are rational, he'll start against the Steelers in Week 4. No word yet on whether the Bucs are rational.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.
