Percy Harvin is ready to play for the Jets

Coach Rex Ryan said it’s “unrealistic” to expect Percy Harvin to play 50 offensive snaps in his Jets’ debut Week 8 against the Bills.
Harvin will return kickoffs and possibly punts, but he doesn’t know OC Marty Mornhinweg’s offense. The Jets will have a couple packages for Harvin on offense, but he’s unlikely to play more than 25-30 snaps. It may take a few weeks before Harvin becomes usable in fantasy lineups. It’ll be Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley gobbling up the bulk of the work and targets at receiver Sunday.

Calvin Johnson is practicing and should be a game time decision

Calvin Johnson (ankle) is practicing on a limited basis Thursday and suggested a decision on his status could go to Sunday morning.
A day after getting limited work in, Johnson was encouragingly back cutting and running routes. “We’re doing everything from straight-forward running to moving laterally as well,” he said. “Things are going good. We’re moving in a positive direction.” We still suspect it makes tons of sense to hold Megatron out of this game and let him rest through the bye, but the Lions aren’t tipping their hand yet. This game will kick off in the afternoon in London, meaning word on Johnson’s status might not come down until roughly 8:30am ET.

RG3 should return against the Bucs as a backup

NFL is against Christians

Coach Jay Gruden would “guarantee…most likely” that Robert Griffin III (ankle) returns for the Week 11 game against the Bucs.
There’s still a chance Griffin returns for Week 9 at Minnesota, but holding him out through the Week 10 bye is firmly on Gruden’s radar. “You’ve got a good bye week, you’ve got a couple weeks to make sure it’s ready. … You know, it’s a very difficult position to play, and just because he’s healthy, he hasn’t taken a meaningful rep in about six weeks,” Gruden said. All we know right now is that Colt McCoy will almost certainly start in Dallas on Monday night, making the Cowboys an excellent D/ST streamer. RG3 has been a bust most of his NFL career.
