Jags going back to Blaine Gabbert Week 4
Monday, September 23, 2013, 3:57pm
Gabbert's hand laceration is apparently healed enough to start Week 4. The Jags likely want to see if they have anything in Gabbert despite him not showing much so far in his career. WR Justin Blackmon is due back in Week 5 after suspension, so maybe we'll get to see what happens when the full offense is back together. For now, WR Cecil Shorts isn't as safe of a play as he seemed to be with Chad Henne.

Adam Schefter is reporting the Browns have an offer for Gordon on the table, but the team would only make a move if they got their asking price. After moving RB Trent Richardson last week, anything is possible. Gordon had a monster game in his return from a two-game suspension but is one more violation away from being lost for the season.

Venon Davis on W3 availability: 'We shall see.'
Saturday, September 21, 2013, 6:21pm
Vernon Davis, who suffered a left hamstring strain late in Sunday's loss to Seattle, was the only 49er who did not practice Friday. He is listed as questionable on the team's injury report.
The 49ers tight end said he was able to run on a side field while the rest of the team practiced Friday. "I'm feeling pretty good, sore, bruised up, but that comes with the business, comes with the game," he said. " Definitely my focus is on this game. .. We shall see when Sunday comes."
Our guess is that Davis will play on Sunday, but there are no guarantees, so have a Plan B ready to go. Coby Fleener, Charles Clay, Heath Miller, Kellen Winslow and Scott Chandler all play at the same time or later this week. Fellow 49er (and rookie) Vance McDonald would be another option if Davis can't play.
Browns likely to use committee at RB
Saturday, September 21, 2013, 7:37am
Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said newly-signed RB Willis McGahee will play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings (0-2) after signing a one-year deal with the Browns (0-2) Thursday in the wake of the organization trading Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for a first-round pick in next year’s draft.
This looks like a situation to stay away from. Ogbonnaya could have the most value this week due to his experience as a third-down back, and it's like the Browns will be passing a lot. But none of the backs will likely see enough of a workload to produce fantasy points. McGahee is still worth a shot as a free agent grab, but he obviously has limited potential.
