ESPN New York's Rich Cimini says that New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh is walking a slippery slope when it comes to backing struggling quarterback Zach Wilson because he risks losing the locker room. There are already rumblings of unrest in the Jets locker room, mainly with members of their strong defense. With Wilson struggling mightily in his third year, tension is building in Gang Green's locker room. The Jets signed veteran Trevor Siemian to their practice squad on Tuesday, but he's far from the solution with future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) done for the year. Perhaps the Jets will attempt to trade for someone like Vikings QB Kirk Cousins this fall. For now, New York is rolling with Wilson as the starter for another game in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.
Houston Texans safety Jalen Pitre (chest) has missed the past two games recovering from a bruised lung suffered in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. But the 24-year-old safety is expected back at practice this week, and if all goes well, he will be in line to play in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston. When healthy, Pitre should immediately jump back into fantasy starting lineups. He's a strong IDP play following his 147 tackle season in 2022.
Green Bay Packers linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (ankle) did not practice with the team in Tuesday's walkthrough. Campbell has not practiced at all this week after being listed as a non-participant in Monday's estimate practice report. The veteran linebacker sustained the ankle injury in the second quarter of the Packers' 18-17 win over the New Orleans Saints, and he did not return to the contest. With the Packers playing on Thursday against the Detroit Lions, Campbell faces an uphill battle to play. Linebacker Isaiah McDuffie would likely draw the start in his place.
Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander (back) was inactive in the team's 18-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints in Week 3. The All-Pro corner did not practice on Monday but did return to the field in a limited fashion in Tuesday's walkthrough. The upgraded practice participation for Alexander is a good sign that he is trending in the right direction for Thursday's matchup against the Detroit Lions. Game designations will be released sometime on Wednesday, so we should know more about the cornerback's availability for Week 4 by then.
The Carolina Panthers will be without safety Xavier Woods (hamstring) for an extended time following his injury in the team's 37-27 loss against the Seattle Seahawks. One source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler that Woods will be out between four and six weeks with a hamstring issue. The 28-year-old safety suffered the injury early in the second quarter when he pushed Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf out of bounds on a 34-yard gain. Woods immediately came out and never returned. Sam Franklin Jr. replaced the veteran safety in Week 3. But it could be fifth-round rookie Jammie Robinson, who is listed ahead of Franklin on the Panthers depth chart, that fills Woods' void.
The New Orleans Saints signed quarterback Jake Luton to their 53-man roster from their practice squad on Tuesday. Luton's signing is a good indication that the team is preparing to be without starting quarterback Derek Carr (shoulder) for the near future. Luton will serve as the team's backup QB while Jameis Winston runs the offense in Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fantasy managers relying on Carr should be making alternate plans at the quarterback position heading into this weekend.
The Cleveland Browns signed running back Deon Jackson and tight end Devin Asiasi to their practice squad on Tuesday. Jackson was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday but did not have to wait long to latch on with another team. He will now bide his time in Cleveland where he could eventually get elevated from the practice squad if the team needs an extra body at the running back position. Jackson has had some big games over his NFL career but struggled in 2023, losing two fumbles and gaining just 14 yards on 13 carries. Asiasi last appeared in a game with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2022 and finished the year with two catches for five yards.
The Minnesota Vikings released running back Myles Gaskin on Tuesday. Gaskin appeared in one game for the Vikings in 2023 but did not log any stats. He became expendable in Minnesota after the team acquired running back Cam Akers from the Los Angeles Rams last week. Gaskin will now hit the free-agent market in hopes of latching on with another team.
Free-agent wide receiver Shi Smith signed with the practice squad of the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday. Smith spent the previous two years with the Carolina Panthers before they released him ahead of the 2023 season, accumulating 28 catches for 400 yards and two touchdowns across 23 games. In Tennessee, Smith will look to carve out a role behind wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins, Treylon Burks, and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. It is unlikely that Smith makes a fantasy impact in the run-first Titans offense, even if he does get elevated from the practice squad at some point.
The New Orleans Saints released wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (groin) from Injured Reserve on Tuesday, making him a free agent. Smith will have to prove he's past his groin injury before another team takes a chance on him as receiver depth. The 27-year-old former third-round pick by the Saints in 2018 out of Central Florida has yet to play in 2023 and had 19 receptions for 278 yards and a career-low one touchdown on 27 targets in 15 games (six starts) last year for New Orleans. Smith has 131 catches on 196 targets for 1,764 yards and 18 touchdowns in 66 games (35 starts) in five NFL seasons, all with the Saints.
