Nick Folk, Promoted to active roster

Folk was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Mike Reiss of reports.

Analysis: This was to be expected as Quinn Nordin (abdomen) was moved to injured reserve. Expect to see Folk officially sign with the active roster next week as the veteran kicker is out of practice squad elevations.

Antony Auclair, Moved up again

Auclair was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Auclair surprisingly was listed as the team's starting tight end Week 1 alongside Pharaoh Brown. No one tight end actually recorded a catch in that contest as the aforementioned duo were simply relegated to blocking duties. That might change with a difficult Week 2 matchup against the Browns on tap.

Nick Folk, Another promotion looming

With Quinn Nordin (abdomen) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, look for Folk to be promoted from the Patriots' practice squad to the team's active roster ahead of the contest.

Analysis: It's an assignment that Folk could hold on to in the coming weeks, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggesting that Nordin is a candidate to go on IR. Either way, Folk -- who made all three of his field-goal attempts in the the team's Week 1 loss to the Dolphins, en route to recording 10 points -- is on track to kick again for New England this weekend, and likley beyond.

Peyton Barber, Added opportunity with Jacobs out

Barber is a candidate to help fill in for Josh Jacobs (toe/ankle), who has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Analysis: "It's an opportunity for Peyton Barber," coach Jon Gruden said of Jacobs' looming absence. "We really like Barber.I like the way he runs and catches and picks up blitzes." With that, it looks like Barber will be involved in the Raiders' Week 2 game plan and thus profiles as an option for those scrambling for RB help. That said, Hill believes that offseason addition Kenyan Drake figures to take the majority of the team's backfield snaps Sunday, a notion echoed by Levi Edwards of the Raiders' official site.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, No surgery planned

At this stage, Fitzpatrick has no plans to undergo surgery to address his hip injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: A decision to address his a hip subluxation through rest and rehab was arrived at after the QB consulted medical experts and underwent a battery of tests. Per Rapoport, Fitzpatrick is expected to miss about eight weeks, meaning that as things stand, Taylor Heinicke is in a position to start for the team into November.
