Hunter was released by the Dolphins earlier this week, which followed him being cut from the Titans ahead of the regular season. However, in wake of Sammy Watkins (foot) being placed on injured reserve, and with Greg Salas (groin) also out Sunday, the Bills could certainly use some depth at wide receiver going into this weekend. While Hunter will be hard-pressed to know much of Buffalo's offensive playbook by Sunday's game against the Patriots, the team's wide receiver injuries could open opportunities for him in the weeks to come.
Wheaton was benched after dropping three passes during his season debut last week, but has looked far improved in practice this week, according to teammate Antonio Brown, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Regardless of any discomfort his previously-injured shoulder is causing, with Eli Rogers (toe) out Sunday, Wheaton is expected to share snaps from slot with Darrius Heyward-Bey, leaving Antonio Brown and Sammie Coates to play on the outside.
While mid-week additions are often worrisome, it's encouraging that Britt didn't miss practice entirely. If he ends up sitting out, Brian Quick and Pharoh Cooper would be the leading candidates to take on extra snaps. Should Britt end up playing, he'll likely see a lot of Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson.
Floyd made a quick recovery from his concussion, logging a limited practice Wednesday, followed by full practices Thursday and Friday. He isn't off to a great start this season, but he'll be out there Sunday against the Rams.
Diggs was a mid-week addition to the report last week with the same groin injury, but he didn't have any injury designation for Sunday's game against Carolina, ultimately handling a full complement of snaps. While it isn't ideal that he seems to keep tweaking the same injury, there still hasn't been anything to suggest it's a serious issue. Unless he misses Saturday's practice, he should be good to go Monday against the Giants.
A mid-week addition to the injury report, Jones was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. His availability doesn't appear to be in much question, as he didn't show any signs of injury at Friday's practice, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The NFL's leader in receiving yards, Jones will do battle with an injury-marred Chicago secondary that would have been shaky even at full strength.
Sharpe was limited earlier in the week by a listed hamstring issue, but that apparently won't prevent him from playing Sunday. That comes as good news to the Titans, who could also welcome both Kendall Wright and tight end Delanie Walker (hamstring) back to the hold this weekend.
According to NOLA.com, Snead is highly optimistic about his chances to play, saying he feels much better than he did prior to Monday's game against Atlanta. While he's trending in the right direction, owners will still want to have another option available from either the late-afternoon games or the Sunday or Monday night contests, as Snead was a limited practice participant all week. The Saints and Chargers will kick-off at 4:25 P.M. ET.
Despite the designation, Bryant should probably be viewed as closer to doubtful, as he didn't practice all week and hinted that he's unlikely to play. His absence might free up a starting spot for Brice Butler, but Cole Beasley, Jason Witten and Terrance Williams would be the better bets to take on Bryant's usual targets.
Strictly a return specialist at this stage in his career, Hester still appears to have his speed, but he muffed a punt in last week's win over the Jaguars. If he misses Sunday's game, the Ravens could turn to any of Lardarius Webb, Steve Smith, Chris Moore, Tavon Young or Terrance West in the return game.
