Perhaps the biggest concern after the first injury report of the week? TE Jimmy Graham (groin) would not have practiced. But ILB Oren Burks was listed as limited for the first time since his preseason torn pec, so a sign of progress there.

The biggest questions for the Jets are LB C.J. Mosley and DT Quinnen Williams. Williams is likely to practice tomorrow, which bodes well for Sunday. Mosley still iffy. The Jets could be short at receiver, with Demaryius Thomas and Josh Bellamy banged up. Also note: Tom Brady was limited.

Saying he has "full confidence" he will be ready for the Eagles in Week 5, QB Sam Darnold (mono) spelled out his recovery timetable. This week: No conditioning or lifting. This weekend: He won't travel to New England. Next Monday: A medical evaluation and, he hopes, clearance for light running during the bye week. Darnold confirmed his spleen remains enlarged, and he recognizes it could be "a life or death situation" if he plays with an enlarged spleen.

Injury report: FB James Develin (neck) and DL Shilique Calhoun (not injury related) did not participate in practice Wednesday. Meanwhile, OL Caleb Benenoch (calf), QB Tom Brady (calf), OT Marcus Cannon (shoulder) and TE Matt LaCosse (ankle) were limited, while RB Brandon Bolden (hamstring) was a full participant.

Patriots versatile OL Joe Thuney is surrounded by a large media crowd, which reflects how the offensive line is a big storyline. Thuney said he is open to playing any position on the line that helps the team.

The Cowboys have released defensive end Taco Charlton. If Charlton is claimed by another team, the Cowboys would not owe him any of the guaranteed money in his contract. If he goes unclaimed and signs with a lower salary, the Cowboys would have to make up the difference in the guaranteed money. The team had a roster exemption through 4 p.m. ET with Robert Quinn returning from a suspension. Charlton, the Cowboys' first-round pick in 2017, has been inactive the first two games and is not hurt. Quinn said he is ready to play whatever role needed against the Dolphins.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Jarrad Davis (ankle), Taylor Decker (back), Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) and C.J. Moore (heel) all limited for the Lions. Good news for Detroit that Rashaan Melvin isn't listed at all.

Several new names appearing on the Bucs' injury report this week, including Jameis Winston (foot). Shaq Barrett is dealing with a groin injury. Coach Bruce Arians said Beau Allen had an issue with the heat today.

As a three-touchdown favorite, many people assume the 2-0 Cowboys will steamroll the winless Miami Dolphins on Sunday at AT&T Stadium. The Dolphins have been outscored, 122-10, in two games. They traded one of their best defenders to start the week in Minkah Fitzpatrick. But the Cowboys are saying the right things. “I think our team is young in years but old in experience,” center Travis Frederick said. “I think our team is well ware of what a game can be when you have people on the outside talking about it like that. If you ask around the room there isn't anybody in here that believes this will be an easy game. Everybody understands what a challenge it'll be and we need to go out there and be at our best if we're going to win this game.”

Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday cornerback Bryce Callahan (foot), fullback Andy Janovich (shoulder) and linebacker Joe Jones (triceps) will practice on a limited basis. Linebacker Todd Davis (calf), who suffered his injury in the first day of training camp, is expected to be a full participant in practice and poised to play against the Packers Sunday.

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

And this from Broncos coach Vi Fangio Wednesday on the prospect of facing Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers this week: "He is one of the best of all time, there's not a lot that's given him a lot of trouble. One of the definitions of a great quarterback is there is really no one way to play him. So, we just have to mix it up on him. He's a great passer, quick release, great arm strength, mobile, scrambler, creator, and he's a great player.'' Fangio also said Rodgers has "athletic arrogance, which is a compliment. He just thinks he can do it.'' After two games the Broncos defense has no sacks and has not forced a turnover. Moments later Fangio was asked if he had concerns over the team's pass rush and he said: "Not at this point, one thing I will say is I was disappointed in our rush on the last drive (in the loss to the Bears). But prior to that in these first two games, they've been unusual games as it relates to pass rush.''

Should quarterback Kyle Allen start for the Panthers on Sunday, Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury will already be very familiar with Allen, a Scottsdale, Arizona, native. Kingsbury recruited Allen to Texas Tech (briefly) but didn't land the prized quarterback. "He was like the number one prospect in the country so he probably threw all our letters away and red-buttoned me every time I called him but I remember watching him, he was very, very talented." It should also be noted that Allen held off Kyler Murray for the Aggies' starting job for the first six games in 2015.

Patrick Mahomes said one of the favorite passes of his career happened in last year's game against the Ravens. The Chiefs had a 4th and 9 late in the fourth quarter down 24-17. They got one after Mahomes was forced by pressure to run to his right. While on the run he threw back across his body down the field to Tyreek Hill for a 48-yard gain to set up the tying touchdown. The Chiefs went on to win in overtime. The play captured everything that makes Mahomes what he is, including being composed under pressure and making a big play when his team needed it the most. Mahomes argued he wasn't as calm as he might have looked. "I don't know if you can call it composure,'' he said.."I looked the wrong way first. I just kind of made something happen after that.''

Either Damien Williams or LeSean McCoy has been the Chiefs' featured back on 119 of 129 plays this season, or 92 percent. Neither was participating in the early portion of practice on Wednesday because of injuries. Darrel Williams and rookie Darwin Thompson, who between them have 10 plays this season, would be in line to get the work on Sunday against the Ravens. Thompson, a sixth-round draft pick, was impressive in training camp and the preseason and looked like he would get a portion of the work in the regular season until the Chiefs signed McCoy. Coach Andy Reid said he wants to make sure Thompson knows his assignments as a pass blocker before he gets a lot of playing time. “As long as I feel like he knows what he's doing, I'm good with it,'' Reid said. “He'll stick it up in there and hit you. It's just a matter of seeing it. He's young so he hasn't seen everything there is to see. He's getting there. I feel comfortable with him in there.''

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers said the reason he was seen shaking out his throwing hand in Sunday's game against Minnesota was because center Corey Linsley inadvertently jammed his middle finger "probably as payback for something I said during the week," he joked. He also said guard Lane Taylor accidentally stepped on his foot. We'll see if Rodgers shows up on the injury report, but he said he was fine.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera isn't ready to rule Cam Newton (foot) out, but he said Kyle Allen had a really good day in practice. Tight end Greg Olsen sounded as though he was prepared for Allen to start Sunday at Arizona. "He's got a great demeanor. We have a lot of confidence in him,'' Olsen said. ‘' . . . It's going to be up to the rest of us to do our part.''

Kyle Allen is excited about the potential to start on Sunday for the Panthers at Arizona, which for the Scottsdale native is a homecoming. He's never played in the Cardinals' stadium, something he's always dreamed of doing. And no In-N-Out burgers for him. ‘' Got to keep it clean two days before the game,'' Allen said.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Russell Wilson was named the NFC's offensive player of the week for his performance in the Seahawks' win over Pittsburgh: 29 of 35 for 300 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. It's the eighth time Wilson has won player of the week, moving him past Shaun Alexander for the most in team history. Wilson's 82.85% completion rate Sunday edged his previous career best.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Tyreek Hill was in Chiefs locker room before practice and he didn't look like a guy who was going to be out much longer. He no longer had his right arm in a sling and he was dribbling a basketball, including with his injured arm. Hill was with the Chiefs for their game in Oakland, though he didn't play. Hill was not scheduled to practice today.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

All Lions players accounted for at practice Wednesday. Taylor Decker and Jarrad Davis participated in individual drills, which is a good sign and something to watch throughout the week. Unclear how much Da'Shawn Hand did today.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Eli Manning says he's "disappointed. Not happy about it. Make the best of it." When asked if this is the end he says he's not dying and the season isn't over. When asked about waiving the no-trade clause he deflects and says he's taking it all day by day right now.

Titans  injury report and game status for TNF vs. Jaguars: David Fluellen (hamstring), Kevin Pamphile (knee), Chris Milton (collarbone) are all out.

Antonio Brown (pictured) and the Patriots are practicing in full pads on Wednesday. Reporters did not spot FB James Develin and DE Shilique Calhoun in the media-access period.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Pat Shurmur said he hasn't "seen anything to make me think (Eli Manning) won't be here." He says Manning has done everything in his power to get ready for this week's game and to help this team win.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

RB Damien Williams has a knee confusion and will not practice today. The plan for LeSean McCoy is to practice some.
