Fantasy Football Who's Out, Who's In: Full NFL injury report for Week 2

Sports
When the NFL's official injury report was released Friday for Sunday's games, 24 players were listed as out, but three key names were not among them. Listed as questionable are Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (left knee), Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (elbow) and Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette (hamstring).

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell has not appeared at practice yet, but he hinted when he will arrive. Bell has told some of his teammates that he will report on Monday, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. That means Bell would get back to work on Labor Day. Bell has not yet signed his tender, and the deadline to sign a multiyear deal passed in July. Monday would be the first day of practice of the week leading up to the Steelers' regular-season opener against the Cleveland Browns. Last year, Bell reported six days ahead of the team's first regular-season game, so it appears he will follow the same schedule this year.
