Lions linebacker Jarrad Davis has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Atlanta because of a concussion.
Analysis: Davis, the team's first-round draft pick this year, was hurt in Monday's victory over the New York Giants. The Lions have also ruled out running back Dwayne Washington with a quadriceps injury and safety Tavon Wilson with a shoulder injury. Center Travis Swanson is questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury and did not practice Friday.
Nelson was limited at practice on Friday because of a hamstring issue.
Analysis: This is big news after Nelson was a hot waiver pickup this week. He was also limited on Thursday, and is questionable for Monday against Dallas.
Ra'Shede Hageman, Atl, DT
Hageman was suspended six games by the NFL on Friday for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Hageman is being disciplined for a March 2016 arrest on domestic violence charges involving his then-girlfriend.
Analysis: He was placed on the commissioner's exempt list on the day of the league-wide cutdown to 53 players and then waived by the Falcons two days later. Hageman, a second-round pick in 2014, had 18 tackles and two sacks last season.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hold a hearing on Oct. 2 to hear arguments on the NFL emergency motion in Elliott's case. Elliott received a preliminary injunction on Sept. 18 that allowed him to continue to play for the Dallas Cowboys despite the NFL handing him a six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The NFL is seeking to have Elliott serve his suspension immediately.
Analysis: The date of the hearing assures that the running back can play against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday and against the Los Angeles Rams the following Sunday. Elliott recorded just 112 yards on 33 carries in two games this season after leading the NFL with 1,631 rushing yards last season as a rookie.
Joyner exited Thursday's game at San Francisco in the second quarter with a hamstring injury and will not return.
Analysis: Though the Rams may not need their starting free safety against the 49ers' punchless offense, an extended absence would be concerning for a secondary that's already without cornerback Kayvon Webster. Joyner entered Thursday's matchup with 13 tackles in two games and returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown in Los Angeles' Week 1 win over the Colts.
Mack has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Browns because of a shoulder injury.
Analysis: Mack was limited in practice Wednesday and didn't take part Thursday. There had been talk recently that Mack and Frank Gore would be sharing the workload, but now Mack won't play at all. He's being replaced on the roster by ex-Redskin Matt Jones, but Mack's absence most benefits Gore and Robert Turbin.
Perry is scheduled to undergo surgery on his hand for the second straight year.
Analysis: Coach Mike McCarthy announced the news on Thursday, but did not reveal how long Perry will be sidelined or even if the injury will keep him out of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals (0-2). "Until we get through the surgery, I don't really have a timeline for you," McCarthy said. Perry, who has seven tackles and 1.5 sacks this season, played 53 of the 58 defensive snaps in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
Jeremy Langford, Bal, RB
The Ravens have placed Langford on IR.
Analysis: Langford sustained an undisclosed injury during a special teams drill on Wednesday, according to the Baltimore Sun. The third-year running back had been re-signed by Baltimore on Tuesday and becomes the 16th player that the Ravens have placed on injured reserve.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed Thursday that Prescott's ankle injury is not serious and should not limit him going forward.
Analysis: Garrett revealed the ankle problem Monday, but there's no reason to think this will stop Prescott from playing in Week 3. However, it does seem possible it could limit his mobility and make him a less effective scrambler.
