Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Jake Delhomme (ankle) is considered day-to-day and the team will decide by the end of the week if he will play in Week 2, according to Nate Ulrich, of the Akron Beacon Journal.

QB | Mark Sanchez | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said he takes the blame if QB Mark Sanchez was too tentative with the football during Week 1 for fear of causing turnovers. "I (told them) how (Baltimore) feeds off turnovers," Ryan said.

QB | Matt Moore | Carolina Panthers | Injury, Fantasy
Carolina Panthers QB Matt Moore (concussion) is expected to be cleared to practice this week and start against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2, according to NFL.com's Steve Wyche. Moore is feeling well and communicating fine. He has been listed as day-to-day.

QB | Tim Tebow | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels said he will not use QB Tim Tebow any differently than he did in Week 1, when Tebow was on the field for three snaps, according to The Associated Press. QB Kyle Orton stayed on the field on the plays that Tebow was a part of. "I don't think I have any desire to do that with Kyle coming off the field, coming on the field, coming off," McDaniels said. "I don't think that's really something that we're looking to do much of. Like I said yesterday after the game, I think our quarterback played pretty well. I think he will play well. (I have) great confidence in his ability to execute what we're doing." McDaniels said he might have used Tebow more if his two carries were more productive.

RB | LaDainian Tomlinson | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan said RBs Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson are the centerpiece of their offense. "Both of them have big roles in this offense," Ryan said. "In one game, will one guy carry it more than the other? Absolutely. When we're going, you love to see these guys get at least 15 carries a piece. That's what you would like to see. We weren't even close to that number yesterday. I think we had 20 rushing attempts." Ryan noted that Tomlinson looks amazing on the practice field, and that he did during the team's Week 1 game, too.
