Hudson was promoted from Tennessee's practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game at Seattle, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.
Analysis: The 24-year-old will provide depth at tight end should Anthony Firkser (knee), who is considered questionable, be unable to play Sunday. Hudson is unlikely to have any fantasy relevance if active.

Mariota was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: It's not a surprising development given Mariota was expected to miss multiple weeks after aggravating a quadriceps injury in Monday's overtime win over the Ravens. The 2015 first-round pick was essentially a gadget player to begin the season, but the designation means Nathan Peterson will be the top backup behind starter Derek Carr.

Board reverted to the Giants' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: For the second week in a row, Board was a part of the action on game day. Only this time, it was eventful, and not in a good way. While he had one six-yard carry and returned one kickoff for 20 yards Thursday at Washington, Board also committed a holding penalty on what otherwise would have been a 58-yard TD run by quarterback Daniel Jones. The Giants ended up settling for a field goal on the drive, and the four-point swing may have been enough in the eventual one-point loss. On a positive note, Board's average kick return this season has gone for 28.7 yards on three attempts, so that may be enough for him to get back on the active roster again in the future.

Smith (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets after logging limited practices both Thursday and Friday.
Analysis: The fact that Smith was able to practice Friday - albeit in a limited fashion -- after being added to the injury report Thursday, suggests that he has a decent chance to suit up for Sunday's 1:00 ET contest. If he ends up limited or out this weekend though, fellow tight end Hunter Henry would be in line for an increased profile in the Patriots' Week 2 passing attack.

Humphries caught seven of eight targets for 44 yards in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Giants.
Analysis: Coming off an ugly, run-heavy loss to the Chargers the previous week, Washington displayed a far better passing attack Thursday evening, led by an 11-catch night from Terry McLaurin. Four other players, including Humphries, finished between six and eight targets, with QB Taylor Heinicke throwing for 336 yards and two TDs in his first regular-season start. Humphries is at 9-54-0 on 10 targets through two games, and he should maintain his slot role Week 3 at Buffalo. Reduced playing time could be coming when Curtis Samuel (groin) returns from IR, which technically can happen as soon as Week 4.
