Mike Evans
Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Leading NFL in first downs through three weeks
Mike Evans, WR, TB
9/28/2016
News: Evans has tallied 17 first downs over the season's first three weeks, more than any other player in the league, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The third-year receiver is off to a good start with respect to putting his drop-laden 2015 behind him, as he's looked like a much more consistent receiver throughout the first three weeks of the new campaign. Evans also has posted a 75 percent (3-for-4) success rate in the red zone, after hauling in only two of 13 targets (15.4 percent) inside the 20 last season. With a whopping 39 targets, touchdowns in each contest, and a solid 14.3 YPC to date, the 23-year-old seems primed for a standout campaign.

Nelson Spruce
Rams' Nelson Spruce: Practices fully Wednesay
Nelson Spruce, WR, LAR
9/28/2016
News: Spruce (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Spruce has been out of action since Week 1 of the preseason due to a knee injury. His full participation at practice Wednesday seems to indicate he is trending toward making his season debut on Sunday. However, he is buried on the team's depth chart, so his opportunities to take the field will be limited.

Pharoh Cooper
Rams' Pharoh Cooper: Full participant Wednesday
Pharoh Cooper, WR, LAR

News: Cooper (shoulder) was able to practice without limitations on Wednesday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The rookie returned to practice last week after dealing with a shoulder injury, but he has yet to take the field this season. He appears to be trending toward making his debut given his full participation in Wednesday's practice. His role figures to be limited however, as he is still behind Kenny Britt, Tavon Auston, and Brian Quick on the depth chart.

Analysis: 

Tyler Lockett
Seahawks' Tyler Lockett: Limited at Wednesday's practice
Tyler Lockett, WR, SEA
9/28/2016
News: Lockett (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Lockett similarly kicked off Week 3 prep with a limited showing and logged back-to-back full practice Thursday and Friday, only to go without a target in Sunday's convincing win against the 49ers. As the week proceeds, he could very well follow a similar schedule, but until he produces again, it's difficult to trust in the second-year wideout.

Analysis: 

Kamar Aiken
Ravens' Kamar Aiken: Did not practice Wednesday
Kamar Aiken, WR, BAL
9/28/2016
News: Aiken (thigh) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

When exactly Aiken suffered from the thigh ailment is currently unknown and there is currently no listed timetable. He should be considered questionable until his status is further updated in the next few days. Aiken is becoming irrelevant in the Ravens' offensive attack, managing just five catches in three games so far this season.

Analysis: 

Tajae Sharpe
Titans' Tajae Sharpe: Limited participant Wednesday
Tajae Sharpe, WR, TEN
9/28/2016
News: Sharpe (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Neither when nor how Sharpe suffered from the injury is known at this time, but given he was still able to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday leaves room for optimism surrounding the rookie receiver's status for this weekend With 14 catches for 157 yards, Sharpe is currently the Titan's leading receiver and his team-high 25 targets shows he's become one of quarterback Marcus Mariota's favorite targets. The team will surely have a better idea of the receiver's health status in the next couple of days.

Analysis: 

Ryan Spadola
Lions' Ryan Spadola: Resides on IR
Ryan Spadola, WR, DET
9/28/2016
News: Spadola (pectoral) is currently on the Lions' Reserve/Injured list.

Since going undrafted out of Lehigh in 2013, Spadola had bounced around the league before joining the Lions' practice squad in 2015. He then signed a futures contract with the team at the end of the season, but suffered a torn pectoral muscle over the summer and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. His future with the team beyond the 2016 campaign is uncertain.

Analysis: 

Kendall Wright
Titans' Kendall Wright: Practicing fully
Kendall Wright, WR, TEN
9/28/2016
News: Wright (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday.

With a return to practicing fully, Wright -- who missed the Titans' first three games -- expects to resume action Sunday against the Texans. Assuming that's the case, he'd likely work behind both Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe, who was limited at Wednesday's practice by a hamstring issue.

Analysis: 

Willie Snead
Saints' Willie Snead: Limited Wednesday
Willie Snead, WR, NO
9/28/2016
News: Snead (toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, the Saints' official site reports.

Prior to being deemed inactive Monday against the Falcons, Snead logged back-to-back DNPs before turning in a limited practice Saturday. Already batting 1-for-1 in that department this week, he has two practices remaining to test his hamstring in anticipation of Sunday's matchup in San Diego.

Analysis: 

Josh Doctson
Redskins' Josh Doctson: In line for multi-week absence
Josh Doctson, WR, WAS
9/28/2016
News: Doctson could sit out multiple weeks due to a lingering Achilles injury, the Washington Post reports.

Initially listed as active in Week 3, the Redskins called an audible shortly thereafter and ruled the rookie wide receiver out after he emerged from pregame warmups feeling unwell. According to head coach Jay Gruden, "He just didn't feel comfortable. Couldn't push off the way he wanted to. So we had to make that last-minute switch [for fellow wideout Rashad Ross]." Doctson has since undergone a series of tests, but no structural damage has been revealed in his Achilles. Nonetheless, the Redskins appear to be leaning toward an extended absence in order to allow Doctson to approach 100 percent at some point during the season.
