Luck completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception in Monday's 30-27 loss to the Eagles. He added 20 yards on four carries.
Analysis: The Colts led for most of the contest and thus leaned heavily on their running game, with Trent Richardson (21) and Ahmad Bradshaw (13) combining for 34 carries. Luck didn't have one of his better games, notably throwing a red-zone interception with the Colts up by seven points in the final six minutes. The pick should've been nullified by a defensive holding or illegal contact penalty, but Luck still made a risky throw at a time when his team would have hugely increased its win expectancy with a field goal. While it's obviously frustrating for Luck's owners to watch Trent Richardson get 21 carries in an offense with this much talent, the young signal-caller should be in for a nice afternoon in Week 3 against the Jaguars.by Rotowire.com
Peterson was accused of injuring another of his children in a disciplinary incident in June 2013, but Peterson's lawyer says authorities took no action and the allegation isn't true, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The Vikings acknowledged in a statement they knew of the incident before deciding to reinstate him to the team this week.
Analysis: The report of another disciplinary incident surfaced after the Vikings decided earlier Monday to reinstate him to the team. While the report of additional allegations of abuse, this time to a four-year old child by a different mother, won't help Peterson's public image, it appears at this point it won't have an impact on Minnesota's decision to allow him to play this week. Peterson was indicted on a felony charge of injury to a child in Montgomery County, Texas on Saturday and was deactivated from Sunday's game. The Vikings decided Monday morning to allow Peterson to participate in this week's practices and he is expected to play this Sunday in New Orleans. Peterson has an Oct. 8 hearing for his court case and a trial won't be scheduled for several months. It's possible that he could still face a suspension from the NFL before his legal proceedings are resolved.by Rotowire.com
Ertz caught four passes for 86 yards on six targets in Monday's 30-27 win over the Colts.
Analysis: Ertz also dropped a pass in the red zone, albeit on a poorly thrown ball by Nick Foles on what should have been an easy completion. After logging 53-of-87 offensive snaps last week, Ertz seemed to play a similar percentage in Monday's game. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Brent Celek dropped his only target in the end zone. Ertz is clearly a better fantasy option than Celek, but there's still plenty of competition for Nick Foles' attention.by Rotowire.com
Jones was a limited participant in Monday's practice due to an ankle injury.
Analysis: Jones and his 13 targets once again carried the majority of the offensive load in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but he seems to have suffered an ankle injury at some point during that contest. The Falcons have a quick turnaround with a Thursday night game this week, so the situation is worth another checkup heading into the early matchup. Also worth noting is that fellow wideout Roddy White missed Monday's practice due to a hamstring injury, and if that ailment limits him in any way Thursday night, look for Jones to have an even bigger role than usual in the Falcons' offensive game plan.by Rotowire.com
Gordon is in line to have his season-long suspension reduced to 10 games, assuming the NFL's revised drug policy is approved, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Analysis: With that in mind, Schefter suggests that approval of the policy seems likely to occur within the next 24 hours. Along with the expected reduction of Gordon's suspension, the report notes that wideouts Wes Welker and Steadman Bailey, as well as defensive back Orlando Scandrick are on track to be reinstated, among others.by Rotowire.com
