Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short took a second to come up with his favorite Luke Kuechly play, which actually was two plays — back-to-back picks in a 2015 Thanksgiving Day game at Dallas. If left Short wondering if the middle linebacker runs on regular unleaded gas or premium.

Also Wednesday, cornerback Adam Jones (thigh), linebacker Brandon Marshall (knee) and tackle Jared Veldheer (concussion) did not practice for the Broncos. Coach Vance Joseph said he was "hopeful'' Jones and Marshall would be ready to play Sunday in Baltimore. Veldheer is in the concussion protocol and Joseph said Veldheer has not yet been cleared for additional activity. It was the first practice of the season the Broncos have had any players held out due to injuries.

Pete Carroll said the NFL has told the Seahawks that linebacker Mychal Kendricks will be available for Sunday's game vs. Dallas as he continues to appeal his suspension. Carroll said he expects Bobby Wagner to play after missing Monday night's game at Chicago with a groin injury, but he isn't sure about K.J. Wright. Kendricks started for Wright Monday night at weakside linebacker. Carroll said center Justin Britt is day-to-day with a sore shoulder.

Broncos quarterback Case Keenum on knee soreness that kept him out of Wednesday's practice: "I woke up Monday a little sore, so I could have practiced today, I wanted to practice, but they wouldn't let me ... Come back and be ready to go (Thursday).'' When asked if he injured it on one of his three running plays in Sunday's win over over the Raiders, including a 7-yard scramble in the game-winning drive, Keenum said: "Guess I need to slide a few more times rather than running, bouncing off defenders ... but I wanted to get a first down.'' Chad Kelly worked with the starting offense Wednesday, including the team's walk-through. Keenum reiterated, however, he expects to practice the remainder of the week and play Sunday in Baltimore.

Rams ILB Mark Barron is "not very likely" to play Sunday against the Chargers, coach Sean McVay said Wednesday. Barron was a limited participant through training camp, did not play in the preseason and was sidelined for Week 1 and Week 2 as he deals with an Achilles issue.

Cam Newton admitted Wednesday there are times when he misses on his postgame outfits, saying, 'Gollee! What was I feeling? But that won't stop the Panthers quarterback from trying new things. "You swing sometimes and you hit a grand slam. You swing sometimes and you miss. But as long as you keep swinging . . . it's all that matters. I pride myself in being able to not only just wear certain things that may catch the blogs, but I'm willing to wear it. I really could care less what a person may think, say or whatever.'' Wonder if he thought this outfit after the opener was a hit or miss?

WR Josh Gordon, whose locker is directly next to Tom Brady's, was limited in his first practice with the Patriots (hamstring). Others limited in practice include OT Marcus Cannon (calf), CB Keion Crossen (hamstring), S Nate Ebner (hip) and CB Eric Rowe (groin). RB Sony Michel (knee) and DE Deatrich Wise Jr. (finger) had full participation, while DE Trey Flowers (concussion) and S Patrick Chung (concussion) did not participate.

Officially, Sean Lee did not practice because of a hamstring injury suffered late in the win against the New York Giants. Lee went through the early portion of practice that was open to the media. After the Giants' game, Lee said he felt he would be able to play against Seattle and the cramping was unrelated to the issues that caused him to miss five games last season.

Rob Gronkowski likes to keep it light. Asked if there was excitement to have another big target on the field in Josh Gordon, he smiled and said, "Being here, there really isn't too much excitement." Then he took a step back, and laughed at his own humor.

Minkah Fitzpatrick discusses some of the social media backlash he and his mom got over his "FitzMagic" trademark: "I kind of laugh at it and use it as fuel. They want me to earn my nickname? That's what I'm going to do. I've been playing pretty well for a rookie my first two games."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has disciplined All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown for missing work Monday. “He and I met yesterday for an extended period of time,” said Tomlin, without taking questions. “I'll leave the nature of that conversation between us. There was discipline involved for his missed meeting on Monday.”

RB Aaron Jones officially rejoined the Packers' roster following his two-week suspension. To make room for him, CB Deante Burton was released. Burton was claimed off waivers from the Falcons last week but was inactive.

They also activated RG Jamon Brown from the roster-exemption list. DE Marcus Martin, who was with the team during the preseason, has been signed to the practice squad.
