Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (-4.5)

Only two players were listed on the Steelers’ Week 3 injury report, but neither had a game designation. Linebacker Devin Bush was limited by a foot injury on Monday, but returned as a full-fledged competitor on Tuesday and Wednesday. Star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was added to the injury report on Wednesday as a restricted competitor with lower leg cramps but is expected to play.

Clowney was the only Brown to receive a game designation in their Week 3 injury report, as he will not play Thursday night due to an ankle injury. Offensive linemen Jack Conklin (knee), Chris Hubbard (illness) and Joel Bitonio (biceps) had limited training attendance on Wednesday.

The Bills just played Monday night, so they have some players who are confused as they quickly turn their attention to next Sunday. Cornerback Dane Jackson (neck), safety Micah Hyde (neck), tight end Dawson Knox (foot) and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (hamstring) did not train on Wednesday. Buffalo also had some limited entrants: WR Gabe Davis (ankle), C Mitch Morse (elbow), DT Ed Oliver (ankle), S Jordan Poyer (foot), and DT Tim Settle (calf).

The Dolphins had a laundry list of injuries on Wednesday as Terron Armstead (toe) and Xavien Howard (groin) were the notables not training. Melvin Ingram had a veteran rest day. Ced Wilson (ribs/toe) was limited.

Big news for the Ravens on Wednesday, as JK Dobbins (knee) was a full-fledged participant in training. Missing the first two games, Dobbins looks on track to play his first game since the 2020 season. Marlon Humphrey (groin) didn’t practice and Devin Duvernay (concussion) is on protocol. Lamar Jackson (right elbow) was limited, but he plays sunday. Ronnie Stanley (ankle) was limited.

Jakobi Meyers (knee) and Kyle Dugger (knee) did not train for the Patriots. Davon Godchaux (back) was limited.

Eagles wideout Quez Watkins was unable to train on Wednesday due to an illness. Philly has a few duped defenders as cornerback Avonte Maddox was limited with a back injury and pass-rusher Haason Reddick was limited with a knee problem.

The Chiefs are pretty healthy heading into Week 3, but Harrison Butker (left ankle) didn’t practice after missing last Thursday’s game. Butker had six days to rest that ankle, so his status for Sunday is worth keeping an eye on. Mecole Hardman was limited with a heel injury.

Cornerback Donte Jackson was the only player to be listed in the Panthers’ injury report on Wednesday, as he was limited with a hamstring injury. Star running back Christian McCaffrey was given a rest day.

Nine Saints were listed on the injury report, but all were restricted. Most notable was Alvin Kamara (rib), who missed last Sunday’s game. Ryan Ramczyk (elbow) and Marcus Maye (rib) were also on the injury report.

Quite a few players didn’t practice for the Titans, most notably Taylor Lewan (knee) and JaMarco Jones (triceps) — making Tennessee thin at the tackle. Kristian Fulton and Dontrell Hilliard were both limited with hamstring injuries, while Kyle Philips was limited with a shoulder injury.

Before the Raiders, Chandler Jones got a veteran rest day, but he wasn’t the only DNP. Trevon Moehrig (hip) and Denzel Perryman (ankle) were not exercising, while Hunter Renfrow is on concussion protocol.

With the Vikings playing Monday night, they were expected to have a few injuries on the roll. The only standout was the starting safety Harrison Smith (concussion), as he goes through protocols. Aidan Hutchinson did not practice for the Lions (thigh) and D’Andre Swift also missed the session on Wednesday (ankle). TJ Hockenson (hip) and Amani Oruwariye (back) were limited.

The Texans have a lighter injury report than most for Week 3, as Kamu Grugier-Hill was limited with a neck injury. Davis Mills was a full participant, but has a right thumb injury.

The Bears have four players who have not practiced, most notably Roquan Smith (hip) and Velus Jones Jr. (hamstring).

Offensive tackle La’el Collins (back), linebacker Germaine Pratt (knee) and tight end Drew Sample (knee) did not train for the Bengals on Wednesday. Tight end Hayden Hurst was a limited competitor with a groin injury.

The Jets didn’t let John Franklin-Myers (toe/quad) practice along with George Fant (knee). The most notable name on the report is Zach Wilson (knee), as there is an outside chance he could play on Sunday.

Analysis is coming.

The Jaguars are once again the healthiest team in the league, as they had no injuries to report on Wednesday.

The Chargers have the most notable player in the weekly injury report, as Justin Herbert was limited by last Thursday night’s rib injury. The long hiatus from the “mini-bye” helps Herbert’s chances of playing on Sunday. Keenan Allen was also limited with his hamstring injury. JC Jackson (ankle) and Corey Linsley (knee) did not practice.
