There were only two players listed on the Steelers’ Week 3 injury report, but neither received game status. Linebacker Devin Bush was limited Monday with a foot injury but returned to full participation Tuesday and Wednesday. Star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was listed on Wednesday’s injury report as a limited participant with minor leg cramps but is expected to play.

Clowney was the only Brown to be given game status on his Week 3 injury report, as he will not play Thursday night due to an ankle injury. However, offensive linemen Jack Conklin (knee), Chris Hubbard (illness) and Joel Pitonio (biceps) were limited participants in Wednesday’s practice.

The Bills played Monday night, so they have some players on the field 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 practice Wednesday. Buffalo had several limited participants: WR Gabe Davis (ankle), C Mitch Morse (elbow), DT Ed Oliver (ankle), S Jordan Boyer (foot) and DT Tim Settle (calf).

The Dolphins had a laundry list of injuries Wednesday as Deron Armstead (toe) and Xavion Howard (groin) were notable absentees. Melvin Ingram is a senior on retirement. Chet Wilson (ribs/toe) was low.

J.K. Big news for the Ravens on Wednesday as Dobbins (knee) was a full participant in practice. After missing the first two games, Dobbins appears on track to play his first game since the 2020 season Sunday. Marlon Humphrey (groin) did not practice and Devin DuVernay (concussion) is in the protocol. Lamar Jackson (right elbow) was limited. But he will play on SundayRonnie Stanley (ankle) was limited.

Jacoby Meyers (knee) and Kyle Tucker (knee) did not practice for the Patriots. Davon Godchaux (later) was less.

Eagles wideout Ques Watkins sat out Wednesday’s practice due to an illness. Philly has a pair of starters as cornerback Avonte Maddox is limited by a back injury and pass-rusher Hassan Reddick is limited by a knee issue.

The Chiefs are fairly healthy heading into Week 3, but Harrison Butker (left ankle) did not practice after missing last Thursday’s game. Butkar has had six days to rest that ankle, so his condition will have to be monitored for Sunday. Mecole Hartman was limited by a heel injury.

Cornerback Donte Jackson was the only player listed on the Panthers’ Wednesday injury report as he was limited by a hamstring injury. Star running back Christian McCaffrey was given the day off.

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

A few players didn’t practice for the Titans — notably Taylor Levin (knee) and Jamarco Jones (triceps) — which leaves Tennessee thin on the defensive end. Christian Fulton and Dontrell Hilliard were both limited with hamstring injuries, while Kyle Phillips was limited with a shoulder injury.

For the Raiders, Chandler Jones got a senior day off — but he wasn’t the lone DNP. Trevon Moehrig (hip) and Denzel Perryman (ankle) did not practice, while Hunter Renfrow remains in the concussion protocol.

With the Vikings playing Monday night, they were expected to have some injuries on their docket. Starting defense is notable as Harrison Smith (concussion) is on protocol. For the Lions, Aiden Hutchinson (thigh) did not practice and De’Andre Swift missed Wednesday’s session (ankle). DJ Hawkenson (groin) and Amani (back) were limited.

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

The Bears have four players who didn’t practice, most notably Roquan Smith (groin) and Velez Jones Jr. (Femur).

Loyal Collins (back), linebacker Jermaine Pratt (knee) and tight end Drew Sample (knee) did not practice for the Bengals on Wednesday. Tight end Hayden Hurst was a limited participant with a groin injury.

Jets are without John Franklin-Myers (foot/quad) with George Fant (knee). The most notable name on the report is Zach Wilson (knee), as he is an outside possibility to play on Sunday.

Analysis to come.

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

The Chargers have the most notable players on the weekly injury report since Justin Herbert was limited by a rib injury last Thursday night. A long layoff from the “mini-pie” helps Herbert’s chances of playing Sunday. Keenan Allen was also limited by his hamstring injury. JC Jackson (ankle) and Corey Linsley (knee) did not practice.
