Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) took full practice reps again Thursday. Jones looked better in Week 2, though the Giants seem to be much improved on the defensive side of the ball. For what it’s worth, HC Jay Gruden said that he wants to run the ball more in the red zone.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Martin is expected to miss the next three weeks with a hamstring injury, so Sims should step into a 15- to 18-touch role as the team’s primary back. The Rams have been so-so against the run this year, yielding three rushing touchdowns to the 49ers in Week 1.

Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) took full practice reps again Thursday. With Adrian Peterson (knee) out for the year, McKinnon is expected to start and see the most touches, though Matt Asiata will be heavily involved, especially around the goal line.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (shin) did not practice Wednesday. Rawls is “on track to play” per HC Pete Carroll. His role is up in the air after he was outplayed by Christine Michael in Week 2.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Stewart is going to miss this week, maybe longer. When he was sidelined for a three-game stretch late in the season, Cameron Artis-Payne turned 38 total touches into 210 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 4.60 YPC during that span and even though he’s been inactive the first two weeks (thanks to not having a role on special teams), he’ll most likely step into a lead back role with Stewart out for Week 3. Ron Rivera basically confirmed this earlier in the week by calling Fozzy Whittaker a change of pace back. Whittaker had a nice Week 2 and will be involved in the game plan.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Baldwin says that “barring any setbacks” he’ll play in Week 3, per HC Pete Carroll. He’s clearly not 100 percent at this point, though that doesn’t mean he won’t produce against San Francisco.

Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. Coleman will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken hand. Terrelle Pryor is the best bet for fantasy points among the Cleveland receivers.

Rams WR Pharoh Cooper (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday.
