Cromartie recorded three tackles and a pass defended during Sunday's victory versus the Giants at New York.
In Week 2, Cromartie rarely took a breather, taking the field for 70-of-72 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. At some point in his first season in the Arizona desert, he'll almost certainly contribute in the interception column working opposite Patrick Peterson, but through two games, Cromartie has just six tackles (five solo) and no other counting stats. Nonetheless, Cromartie's track record -- he's averaged three per season since picking off 10 in 2007 -- should keep him in the hearts and minds of IDP owners for the time being.
|Tue Sep 16||17:16||The Giants placed Thurmond (chest) on injured reserve Tuesday||Walter Thurmond III||CB||Seahawks||Free Agent|
The Giants placed Thurmond (chest) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.
Thurmond underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn pectoral muscle that he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He will need 3-to-4 months to recover from the procedure, and will not play again this season. Linebacker Dan Fox was added from the practice squad to replace Thurmond on the active roster.
|Tue Sep 16||17:12||Beason aggravated previous foot injury in Sunday's loss to Cardi...||Jon Beason||LB||Panthers||Free Agent|
Beason aggravated a previous foot injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.
It was orginally reported that Beason suffered a toe injury in Sunday's game, but the Giants clarified his status Tuesday by announcing that he is dealing with a setback he has experienced previously. Further details about Beason's status were unavailable, and he may still need to visit a foot specialist, so consider him questionable for Week 3 at this point.
|Tue Sep 16||17:10||The Giants placed Jernigan (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday||Jerrel Jernigan||WR||Giants||Free Agent|
The Giants placed Jernigan (foot) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.
The nature of Jernigan's injury is uncertain, but it seems likely that it occurred in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He will not need surgery to repair his "mid-foot sprain," but he is still facing a lengthy recovery timetable, and his season is officially over. Julian Talley was added from the practice squad to take Jernigan's spot on the roster.
|Tue Sep 16||17:06||Powers totaled five tackles (four solo) during Sunday's victory ...||Jerraud Powers||DB||Colts||Free Agent|
Powers totaled five tackles (four solo) during Sunday's victory against the Giants in New York.
Powers earned the fifth most snaps (58-of-72) among Cardinals defensive backs this past weekend, according to FOX Sports 910 Phoenix. While he recorded his eighth career interception in Week 1, his status as a reserve cornerback keeps his IDP relevance in check.
|Tue Sep 16||15:59||Scobee made his only field-goal attempt (36 yards) and an extra ...||Josh Scobee||K||Jaguars||The Squirts|
Scobee made his only field-goal attempt (36 yards) and an extra point in Jacksonville's loss to Washington in Week 2. He has nine points in two games.
The Jacksonville offense is last in the NFL and generating few sustained drives and scoring opportunities. As a result, Scobee should not be on your radar right now. It's best to hold for now and see how his prospects change when head coach Gus Bradley turns the quarterback job over to Blake Bortles.
|Tue Sep 16||15:42||Foote recorded eight tackles (four solo) and game-ending interce...||Larry Foote||LB||Steelers||Free Agent|
Foote recorded eight tackles (four solo) and the game-ending interception in Sunday's victory versus the Giants at New York.
Foote isn't providing the pass rushing chops of Karlos Dansby, who departed in free agency during the offseason, but the former is nonetheless providing stability at inside linebacker for the Cardinals this season. Through two contests, Foote sits in a tie with strong safety Tony Jefferson for the team-lead in tackles with 16, a pace in line with Dansby from 2013 and by far a career-best for the 13-year pro.
|Tue Sep 16||15:39||Jones (ankle) full participant at Tuesday's practice||Julio Jones||WR||Falcons||Diddlee Poo|
Jones (ankle) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, ESPN reports.
Jones was limited during Monday's practice, but increased his activity level with Thursday's game against the Buccaneers drawing closer. After picking up a seemingly minor ankle pain last Sunday, Jones is expected to play Thursday and should continue to be heavily targeted in the Falcons' offense. Fantasy owners should deploy Jones as they normally would this week.
|Tue Sep 16||15:32||Foster (shoulder) did not practice Tuesday||Mason Foster||LB||Buccanneers||Free Agent|
Foster (shoulder) did not practice Tuesday, Buccaneers.com reports.
Foster dislocated his shoulder on Sunday and is expected to miss time because of the injury, making Tuesday's absence from practice not really surprising. With him out, the Buccaneers will be forced to reshuffle their linebacking corp, adding to an already banged-up defensive unit ahead of Thursday's game against the Falcons.
|Tue Sep 16||15:21||Campbell accrued 10 solo tackles||Calais Campbell||DE||Cardinals||Free Agent|
Campbell accrued 10 solo tackles, three tackles for loss, and one sack in Sunday's win versus the Giants in New York.
Among Cardinals defensive linemen, Campbell played a team-high 66-of-72 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. In any case, the performance was a welcome relief, after he was blanked in the Week 1 box score. Because this year's defense is without a number of 2013 stalwarts -- Darnell Dockett (knee), Daryl Washington (suspension), Karlos Dansby (to Cleveland via free agency), and John Abraham (concussion) -- Campbell must be his usual disruptive self for the Cardinals to survive the losses.
|Tue Sep 16||15:14||Brock (toe) not expected to play in Sunday's Week 3 game against...||Tramaine Brock||CB||49ers||Free Agent|
Brock (toe) is not expected to play in Sunday's Week 3 game against the Cardinals, ESPN reports.
Brock suffered a sprained toe in San Francisco's Week 1 contest that forced him to sit out Sunday's loss to the Bears. With another week of rest apparently on the horizon, Perrish Cox could receive a second consecutive start at cornerback for the 49ers.
|Tue Sep 16||15:11||Conte (shoulder) considered day-to-day by coach Marc Trestman||Chris Conte||S||Bears||Free Agent|
Conte (shoulder) is considered day-to-day by coach Marc Trestman, ESPN.com reports.
Conte suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday night's game and did not return after picking up the ailment. However, Conte is reportedly just sore, which bodes well for his future availability. With two interceptions in two games, Conte has made some plays in coverage thus far. Expect his status to be updated in advance of next Monday's game against the Jets.
|Tue Sep 16||15:09||Peterson supplied four solo tackles in Sunday's win against Gian...||Patrick Peterson||CB||Cardinals||Free Agent|
Peterson supplied four solo tackles in Sunday's win against the Giants in New York.
Peterson has little to show for his efforts this season, with five solo tackles and no other counting stats on the ledger. Along with the sparse stat lines, the league's highest-paid cornerback played one of the worst games of his career in Week 2. Eli Manning didn't shy away from Peterson, who was beat on a seven-yard touchdown grab by Reuben Randle. Moreover, Peterson committed one defensive hold and one pass interference apiece. While his prime contribution to IDP formats is interceptions, he's nearing a full year since his previous pick in Week 5 last season against the Panthers.
|Tue Sep 16||15:07||White (hamstring) expected by coach Mike Smith to be able to pla...||Roddy White||WR||Falcons||The Blumpies|
White (hamstring) is expected by coach Mike Smith to be able to play Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
White missed practice both Monday and Tuesday while resting his legs, but apparently is anticipated to be ready for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers. While news of coach Smith planning on having White available is certainly encouraging, the veteran wideout will probably be less than 100 percent, considering he's currently carrying minor hamstring and knee pains.
|Tue Sep 16||14:59||Johnson (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday||Michael Johnson||LB||Bengals||Free Agent|
Johnson (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Johnson missed last Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but could be ready to return this Thursday against the Falcons. Should he do so, Johnson would help a Buccaneers' defense already without Adrian Clayborn (biceps), Mason Foster (shoulder), and possibly Gerald McCoy (hand).
|Tue Sep 16||14:54||Martin (knee) returned to practice with Buccaneers' first-team o...||Doug Martin||RB||Buccanneers||Free Agent|
Martin (knee) returned to practice with the Buccaneers' first-team offense Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Martin missed Sunday's game with a knee ailment, but could return to action already this Thursday for the Buccaneers' divisional clash against the Falcons. However, since Bobby Rainey amassed 174 all-purpose yards with Martin out last Sunday, the distribution of Tampa Bay's backfield touches will be interesting to monitor Thursday, assuming Martin is made available. Nonetheless, the Buccaneers will be facing a Falcons defense that currently ranks dead-last league-wide, so both Martin and Rainey could end up enjoying their Week 3 matchup.
|Tue Sep 16||14:47||Lewis (ankle) placed on Jaguars' injured reserve/designated for ...||Marcedes Lewis||TE||Jaguars||Free Agent|
Lewis (ankle) was placed on the Jaguars' injured reserve/designated for return list Tuesday, ESPN reports.
Lewis has been ruled out for 6-to-8 weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain Sunday against the Redskins. Now, given his injury designation, the Jaguars' starting tight end won't be eligible to return until Week 12. While he remains out, Clay Harbor (calf) and Mickey Shuler will serve as Jacksonville's tight end options, with Marcel Jensen also being signed from the practice squad Tuesday.
|Tue Sep 16||14:31||Miller (ankle) took part in Tuesday's practice||Lamar Miller||RB||Dolphins||Free Agent|
Miller (ankle) took part in Tuesday's practice, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Miller suffered a minor ankle injury toward the end of Sunday's loss to the Bills, but is practicing Tuesday and doesn't figure to be limited moving forward. If anything, teammate Knowshon Moreno (elbow) being ruled out boosts Miller's fantasy stock significantly as the undisputed No. 1 running back on the Dolphins.
|Tue Sep 16||14:31||Gray dealing with strained foot||Cyrus Gray||RB||Chiefs||Free Agent|
Gray is dealing with a strained foot, which coach Andy Reid deems a minor concern, the Kansas City Star reports.
The high ankle sprain suffered by Jamaal Charles this past Sunday all but assures starting status for Knile Davis for the foreseeable future. Wednesday's injury report should shed light on the severity of Charles' ailment, but in any case, Gray and De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring) could be factors in the ground game behind Davis on Sunday at Miami.
|Tue Sep 16||14:25||Hemingway caught two passes for 21 yards on three targets Sunday...||Junior Hemingway||WR||Chiefs||Free Agent|
Hemingway caught two passes for 21 yards on three targets Sunday against the Broncos.
Hemingway serves as the team's third or fourth wide receiver, splitting time with A.J. Jenkins. While Hemingway saw 34 offensive snaps compared to 24 for Jenkins, he still doesn't serve much value in the Chiefs' run-heavy offense.
