Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. The 25-year-old also got in a limited session on Wednesday, putting him in position to play in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs if he is present in some capacity once again on Friday. The Bears will need all the ammunition they can find in order to keep pace with the Chiefs on Sunday, so they'll hope Mooney is good to go by then. The fourth-year wideout caught four of seven passes for 53 yards and a touchdown in the season opener, but was held catchless before exiting Week 2 early in the second half. Mooney would be a dart-throw WR4/FLEX if he is ultimately able to play in Week 3.

Detroit Lions running back David Montgomery (quad) missed his second consecutive day of practice on Thursday. The fifth-year veteran was injured in the Lions' Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks, suffering a deep bruise to his thigh on a play in the third quarter. So far, Montgomery has seen the most work out of the backfield, getting 37 rushing attempts to rookie Jahmyr Gibbs' 14. Gibbs could have the breakout fantasy managers drafted him for his Montgomery misses time. The Lions take on the Atlanta Falcons at home in Week 3.

Carolina Panthers special teams coach Chris Tabor said they will rev up running back Tarik Cohen's repetitions in practice this week to see where he is. The punt returner/RB could add some explosiveness to an offense that has lacked it through two weeks of the season as well. Cohen is attempting to make an NFL comeback after some serious knee injuries, and he hasn't played in an NFL game since 2020. It wouldn't hurt the Panthers to see what he can give him on offense behind Miles Sanders and Chuba Hubbard, but it's unrealistic to expect the 28-year-old to contribute meaningfully outside of special teams anytime soon.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Darnell Mooney (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. After playing 84 percent of the offensive snaps in the season opener, Mooney suffered a knee injury in the Week 2 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and played just 28 percent of the snaps while not catching a single pass. The good news is that Mooney's knee ailment isn't serious, so he has a chance to play this weekend as the Bears look to get their first win of the year against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 25-year-old was seen as a potential bounce-back candidate in 2023 after an injury-plagued 2022 campaign, but it's hard to trust any Chicago pass-catcher right now with how bad their passing attack has looked through the first two weeks of the season.

Detroit Lions running back David Montgomery (thigh) was unable to practice on Wednesday. We've heard conflicting reports when it comes to Montgomery's status after he was injured in the Week 2 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Montgomery thinks he's going to need a couple of weeks to recover, while head coach Dan Campbell called him day-to-day this week. It remains to be seen if the 26-year-old will be able to play in Week 3 versus the Atlanta Falcons, but fantasy managers should prepare for the worst and plan to be without him. Rookie first-rounder Jahmyr Gibbs should have a hefty workload for as long as Montgomery is out, with Craig Reynolds and Zonovan Knight serving as his backups.
