Updates/analysis (most recent first)

Adam Schefter‘s overnight update (7:30 a.m.): Sources tell Schefter that Devonta Freeman, who has already been ruled out for Sunday’s game, will miss 2-3 weeks with his knee contusion. Chargers WR Travis Benjamin and Jacksonville RB Leonard Fournette are will test their injuries pregame to see if they can play. Prepare for both to be out, however.

DeSean Jackson (7:25 a.m.): Tampa Bay beat reporter Rick Stroud says that Jackson has been removed from the league’s concussion protocol and is cleared to play today. Both he and DE Jason Pierre-Paul should be on the field against the Eagles.

Marcus Mariota (7:20 a.m.): The Titans quarterback will be a game-time decision for the Titans, but due to his grip issues, if he does play, it might not be pretty. Blaine Gabbert is likely to see action, even if Mariota does end up starting. However, with multiple injuries on the offensive line, this is a situation to avoid for fantasy.

Josh Gordon (7:15 a.m.): The Browns have said they will be parting ways with Gordon on Monday, after he reportedly injured his hamstring at a promotional shoot. According to Adam Schefter, multiple sources believe the Browns will trade him in order to get something in return, rather than release him and allow him to become a free agent. WR Antonio Callaway could be a big beneficiary as a result of this news.

Official Sunday inactives should begin coming in at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET for the early games and 2:30 p.m. ET for the late games.
