Quarterback

QB | Matthew Stafford | Detroit Lions | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (shoulder) is making great progress in his rehab from a shoulder injury and has apparently thrown, but the team is not providing details, according to The Detroit News' Chris McCosky. "He's doing more and more," head coach Jim Schwartz said. "There's a lot of steps through that (throwing the ball). There's range of motion stuff, there's different objects, there's active throwing and there's working with a receiver. I don't want to go into where he is in that progression."

RB | Steven Jackson | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson (groin) will attempt to play in the team's Week 4 game, according to Brian Stull, of 101ESPN St. Louis. Jackson will test his injured groin in the morning of the game to see if he can play. "Sunday we'll definitely go out before the game, warm up, see how I feel" Jackson said. "Ideally I would like to get a practice in either tomorrow or Saturday. So we still have two days of practice that I could go out and try it, but say Friday or Saturday it doesn't happen, I will be there early Sunday seeing if I can run and cut and seeing if I can go out there and give my team a lift." Giving his team a lift in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks, or resting to be sure he is healthy enough to be there for the rest of the season is still an issue Jackson is wrestling with.

RB | Jahvid Best | Detroit Lions | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Lions RB Jahvid Best (toe) said his injured right toe is feeling better, and he is confident he will play in Week 4, according to Tim Twentyman, of The Detroit News. "Oh, yeah, definitely," Best said about playing. "It's been getting better so far and it's looking like I'll be ready to go this week." Best said he'll practice Friday, Oct. 1, to test the toe out, and it'll really just come down to how much pain he can deal with.

RB | Ronnie Brown | Miami Dolphins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring) was limited to just 11 carries in Week 3 due to a pulled hamstring, according to Jeff Darlington, of the Miami Herald. Brown had 13 carries in each of the first two games, but the Dolphins went into the game with less of an emphasis on running the ball compared to the first two games. Brown was not listed on the injury report for Week 4.

RB | Ray Rice | Baltimore Ravens | Injury, Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice (knee) said he feels great and he is sure he will be ready to play during Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, reports Jamison Hensley, of the Baltimore Sun. He doesn't expect to wear any protective gear on his knee because that would limit him. Rice said Sunday will be the ultimate test on whether he's ready to play, and noted the decision will be up to the coaching staff.

RB | Clinton Portis | Washington Redskins | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Washington Redskins backup RB Ryan Torain will likely have an increased workload in the coming weeks, reports Jason La Canfora, of The NFL Network. The extra work is expected to particularly come on first and second downs. While RB Clinton Portis remains the team's starting tailback, some players believe Torain is a better fit for head coach Mike Shanahan's system. Torain is quicker and more explosive than Portis at this point, but isn't as strong in pass protection, which is an area Portis excels. If Torain can handle a bigger load, Portis could shift to a third-down role sources noted. Portis said he is motivated to do his job, but the assignments come from the coaching staff and there isn't anything he can do about it. Portis said he has not discussed his role with Shanahan.

"I think it will be a great one-two punch, naturally, with him and Jerome," Delhomme added. "The offensive line really played well.

Cleveland Browns QB Jake Delhomme said he likes what he has seen from RBs Jerome Harrison and Peyton Hillis as the team's running attack this season, reports Matt Florjancic, of ClevelandBrowns.com. "I think it will be a great one-two punch, naturally, with him and Jerome," Delhomme added. "The offensive line really played well. I think [FB Lawrence Vickers] is one who maybe doesn't get the credit he deserves with the attitude he brings and what he does from the fullback position."


Wide Receiver

WR | T.J. Houshmandzadeh | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh is confused as to why he has not been a bigger part of the team's offense thus far, according to Dan Kolko, of MASNSports.com. "It's different," Houshmandzadeh said. "I've got the offense, for the most part, I would say. There's certain things where I still make a mistake here or there, but for the most part, I know what's going on. I'm just not getting the opportunities, really, for whatever reason ... I told myself going in I wasn't expecting much the first three weeks, because obviously, they had a few things set in stone before I got here. And I'm not saying I'm expecting more this week, but I know the first few weeks I didn't expect a lot. Hopefully that will change, because that's why I came here. So, we'll see how it goes." Houshmandzadeh has two catches for 31 yards, and has been targeted 11 times this season, including just once in Week 3.

WR | Brandon Marshall | Miami Dolphins | Fantasy
Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Dan Henning said WR Brandon Marshall had to head to the locker room before halftime of Week 3 to receive several IVs, as his big workload took its toll, according to Jeff Darlington, of the Miami Herald. Marshall has been targeted often throughout the season thus far, and he continues to get accustomed to the Florida heat. With an average of seven catches and 97 yards through three games, Marshall is on pace for 112 catches and 1,552 yards for the year. Marshall was targeted 12 times in the second half alone in Week 3. During the game, he had played 65 snaps and run 40-yard routes on almost every play. Although critics questioned Marshall's conditioning after the game, Marshall responded by noting that he runs one or two miles every morning at 5 o'clock before most other players' days begin. Henning believes Marshall burns a lot of non-productive energy by being too anxious and emotional before games.

WR | Terrell Owens | Cincinnati Bengals | Fantasy
Cincinnati Bengals WR Terrell Owens voiced frustration with the team's offense after the first three weeks of the season, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy. "Obviously, I think with the expectations of what we have in this locker room, especially with the addition of myself, and with Chad doing some great things here for this organization, with all the hoopla and expectations and the Batman and Robin stuff, the capabilities of what we have, obviously it is disappointing. We're constantly kicking field goals and things of that nature. We're not moving the ball up and down as we expected, but a win is a win, and that's the most important thing at the end of the day," Owens said. "I've been open on a number of routes, and for whatever reason, there's always been some kind of breakdown with protection, or Carson has to come out of the pocket, or he's rushed. It's one of those things where it's frustrating for myself, but I've got to keep plugging away. I'm not going to gripe. The most important thing as I've alluded to here is we're winning. If we were losing, then I would definitely have a lot to say, but the most important thing is the W."

WR | Andre Johnson | Houston Texans | Injury, Fantasy
Oakland Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha isn't likely to shadow Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) this week the same way Asomugha followed around Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald last week, reports ANG Newspapers' Jerry McDonald. "Nnamdi's not the focal point of this game," defensive coordinator John Marshall said. "If we don't give an outstanding team effort, so what if 80 catches one ball and you lose the game. That's not the focus." The Raiders are preparing for their Week 4 game against the Texans as if Johnson, who is considered a game-time decision, will play.
