Cowboys QB Dak Prescott told ESPN's Lisa Salters that he expects to be back from his thumb injury in a couple of weeks. He intimated that could be as soon as Week 4 against Washington. We'd bet on Week 5 actually being the earliest. Prescott did get stitches removed from the injured hand Monday, though. ESPN's Todd Archer reports that the QB's grip strength will play a big part in determining when he can get back into the lineup. We'll keep watching Prescott's progress.

Eagles WR DeVonta Smith led the team in targets (12), receptions (8) and receiving yards (169) in Sunday's win over the Commanders. He grabbed 1 of Jalen Hurts' 3 TD passes, leaving 1 apiece for WR A.J. Brown and TE Dallas Goedert. Brown checked in 2nd in the other 3 categories, tallying a 5-85-1 receiving line on 10 targets. Goedert managed just 3-26-1 on 4 looks in a game he left briefly with a shin issue. Smith looks like he'll reside much closer to Brown in target share than the opener in Detroit suggested.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts delivered his 3rd straight top-4 fantasy performance to open the season -- pending Monday night's results -- with a big outing in the win over Washington. Hurts had light rushing day, collecting just 20 yards on 98 attempts. But he racked up 340 yards and 3 TDs passing, with no turnovers. Hurts found WR DeVonta Smith, WR A.J. Brown and TE Dallas Goedert for scores -- all in the 2nd quarter. He gets non-scary matchups with the Jaguars and Cardinals the next 2 weeks, with likely the biggest challenge so far looming in a Week 6 home date with Dallas.

Patriots QB Mac Jones suffered a "severe" high-ankle sprain that is expected to cost him multiple games and would "cause many to have surgery," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jones and the team are reportedly still figuring out the course of action for the QB. But it seems we should expect him to be out for at least the near future. Brian Hoyer figures to fill in while Jones is out.

Cardinals WR A.J. Green has a bone bruise in his knee and "could miss at least this week," HC Kliff Kingsbury said Monday. Green has been wildly ineffective so far but has played 64% of Arizona's offensive snaps. Those will need to be picked up by either Andy Isabella or Andre Baccellia.

The Chiefs released K Matt Ammendola. He missed a 34-yard FG and an XP in the Week 3 loss to the Colts. We'll see if K Harrison Butker is able to return for Week 4 or if the Chiefs sign another K.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley said Monday that EDGE Joey Bosa is "week to week" after suffering a significant groin injury, according to multiple reports. That explanation makes it appear the team expects Bosa to miss at least 1 game. We'll see beyond that.

Giants WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game against the Cowboys. He'd been listed as doubtful, so no surprise here. Sterling Shepard, David Sills and Richie James are the favorites to lead Giants WRs in snaps tonight.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Giants. So we wait another week for his return from last January's torn ACL. NFL Network's Jane Slater reports that the Cowboys are "hopeful" that Gallup will be able to play vs. the Commanders on Sunday.

Browns EDGE Myles Garrett went to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a single-car rollover accident Monday afternoon, according to multiple reports. There's been no further report of Garrett's specific injuries. We'll have to see about the impact on his football availability.

Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz (knee) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Giants. That leaves Dallas with TEs Jake Ferguson and Peyton Hendershot. Ferguson has run 12 pass routes to Hendershot's 6 so far this season.

Giants EDGE players Azeez Ojulari (calf) and Kayvon Thibodeaux (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Cowboys. It will be the 1st game for each this season after their injuries kept them out the 1st 2 weeks. Their returns are bound to help the Giants defense over the long run. We'll see about how immediately effective each young player is off the multi-week injury.

Cowboys whirlwind Micah Parsons is active for tonight's game against the Giants. He entered the day questionable because of an illness but should be in any IDP lineups where possible.

The Dolphins estimated their 1st practice report of the week Monday, ahead of Thursday night's visit to Cincinnati. That included listing QB Tua Tagovailoa as a non-participant. HC Mike McDaniel says the QB is dealing with soreness in his back and ankle and that they were awaiting further test results Monday. Tagovailoa did return to Sunday's game after leaving for a concussion check -- what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport later reported as more of a neck/back injury -- but we'll see about his availability for Thursday.

49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk saw 8 targets in a Week 3 loss to Denver. That tied Deebo Samuel for the team lead. From 3 yards out, Aiyuk caught Jimmy Garoppolo’s only TD pass on a well-designed play where Deebo walled off the nearest defender. While George Kittle’s return adds volatility, Aiyuk remains an ascending talent with a high weekly ceiling. Don’t be surprised if he’s in the WR3 mix for Sunday’s divisional tilt with the Rams.

Chargers WR Jalen Guyton suffered an ACL tear in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, according to multiple reports, ending his season. Guyton played just 29 total snaps through 3 weeks, with 3 of his 4 targets coming against Jacksonville.

The Ravens have signed EDGE Jason Pierre-Paul to a 1-year deal worth up to $5 million, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Baltimore has just 7 sacks through 3 games, despite facing a league-high 141 pass attempts. The only Raven with 2+ sacks so far is EDGE Justin Houston, who left Sunday's win over the Patriots with a groin injury. We'd bet on JPP quickly working into the rotation, though we'll need to see his playing time before considering him for IDP lineups.

Vikings HC Kevin O'Connell called RB Dalvin Cook "day to day" with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of Sunday's contest, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That follows in line with initial reports on Cook's status. It sounds like Minnesota expects Cook to be available for Week 4, but we'll have to track his status through the practice week.

49ers TE George Kittle made his season debut Week 3 at Denver but managed only 4 catches for 28 yards. He saw 5 targets — a 17.2% share — and posted a strong 82% route rate. Brighter days are ahead for Kittle, assuming he can dodge further injury woes. Next up is a meeting with the Rams.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said Monday that RB Joe Mixon "nicked up" his ankle in the win over the Jets but "will be good to go" for Thursday night's game vs. the Dolphins. We'll keep an eye on Mixon's practice participation over the next couple of days, but he can be penciled into Week 4 fantasy lineups for now.
