    NFL Player News - Week 10

    TB - QB Jameis Winston out two weeks

    Source: PewterReport.com

    Confirming a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston will indeed be sidelined the next two weeks in order to heal his injured shoulder, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    A move that was expected. Ryan W. Griffin (shoulder) will be activated from the Reserve/Injured list to back up QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. The team will also be missing WR Mike Evans for one game due to his suspension for a cheap shot on Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

    TB - WR Mike Evans suspended one game

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has been suspended for the Buccaneers' Week 10 contest for his involvement in an altercation Sunday, Nov. 5, versus the New Orleans Saints.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Evans went after Saints CB Marshon Lattimore with a cheap shot where he hit him in the back. The officials made a mistake not booting Evans from the game after that, but they're correcting that error with this suspension. Without Evans, we'll see more from WRs DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries. It could also lead to more targets for TEs Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard.

    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (leg) played through a lower leg injury in the Falcons' Week 9 win, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Jones will be limited in practice this week. We'll know more about his playing status in Week 10 later in the week. The Falcons are at home against the Cowboys on Sunday.

    Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray (knee) appears to be passed his shoulder and hamstring issues, but head coach Mike Mularkey told reporters the veteran running back is now dealing with a knee injury.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    His nine carries for 19 yards against the Ravens in Week 9 were a season low. We should see him limited in practice during the week. Murray's Week 10 status is not known at this time. Derrick Henry would be in line for a larger role at home against the Bengals if Murray can't play.

    DAL - RB Ezekiel Elliott hearing scheduled for Thursday

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's hearing with the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Per the Dallas Morning News' Kate Hairopoulos, Elliott can practice and play with the Cowboys until the three-judge committee rules since the stay he received last week did not have an end date.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    It seems like Elliott is on a week-to-week basis with these legal proceedings. There is no end date for the temporary stay that was handed down last week.

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage is expected to start Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Savage doesn't do anything to inspire confidence, but the Texans don't really have a better option. If he continues to struggle then perhaps we'd eventually see T.J. Yates or Matt McGloin.

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green will not be suspended for his involvement in an altercation with Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey in Week 9.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    It's unbelievable that Green didn't get suspended for his altercation with Ramsey. He threw more than one punch at the young CB and Green also body slammed him from around the neck two times. Green will be on the field against the Titans in Week 10 and of course should be considered a WR1 for fantasy owners.

    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee, ankle) is considered day-to-day as he deals with knee and ankle injuries, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    All fantasy owners need to add WR Terrance Williams if he's on the waiver wire. We could see a larger role for WRs like Williams and Cole Beasley if Bryant misses time or isn't quite himself when he does play. Garrett doesn't believe Bryant's knee injury is serious.

    DEN - QB Brock Osweiler to start again

    Source: 9News.com - Mike Klis

    Denver Broncos QB Brock Osweiler will be the starting quarterback against the New England Patriots in Week 10, according to sources.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Osweiler didn't look good against the Eagles defense in Week 9, throwing two interceptions and leading the team to only one touchdown drive. He'll have a better matchup against the Patriots defense, but he's nothing more than a QB2 for fantasy owners. If he struggles again this week, expect the Broncos to turn to 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch at some point.

    TEN - More running in QB Marcus Mariota's future?

    Source: John Glennon

    Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota will likely be involved in more designed runs moving forward since the team feels good about his mobility. Mariota suffered a hamstring injury in Week 4 and has only carried six times for 14 scoreless yards in three games since.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    That seems to make sense as the young QB gets healthier. Last year, Mariota had 59 carries for 357 yards in 15 games. His rushing ability only enhances his fantasy value.

    Free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers) was discussed as an option after QB Deshaun Watson (knee) was lost for the season, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Kaepernick would be a better option than what the Texans have right now with Watson out for the year. However, the situation with him is incredibly polarizing and one that no team seems ready to take on.

    NYG - QB Eli Manning could yield to Smith or Webb at some point?

    Source: SNY - Ralph Vacchiano
    New York Giants QB Eli Manning is the Giants' starting quarterback, for now, but head coach Ben McAdoo didn't rule out the possibility of giving QB Geno Smith or QB Davis Webb a chance at some point this season. Smith came in for a couple snaps in New York's Week 9 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Like much of the team, Manning's future in NY isn't totally clear. The Giants selected Webb in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft with an idea that he could be a developmental prospect. Webb is a 'toolsy' QB with size (6'5" 230 pounds) and arm strength, but he played in a Cal offense that didn't ask him to throw downfield much (65 percent of his completions less than 10 yards from the line of scrimmage). He's drawn comparisons to Brock Osweiler (Broncos) and Nick Foles (Eagles) by some in the scouting community.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Fantasy owners need to take note here. Woodhead was on track for a major role with this offense before suffering this hamstring injury. He's a RB2 with upside for fantasy owners in PPR leagues. Add him now for an expected return in Week 11.

    Reed is always banged up, and his fantasy owners are already used to him missing time...or just watching the injury report to check his status. We'll know more about him at the end of the week. Washington is at home to face the Vikings in Week 10.

    Wednesday Update

    TB - WR Mike Evans' appeal denied

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans' one-game suspension was upheld Tuesday, Nov. 7. He will not play in Week 10.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Evans took a cheap shot on Saints rookie CB Marshon Lattimore in Week 9, and that's why he's sitting this one out. At home against the Jets in Week 10, WRs DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries should get more work. We may even see more targets for TEs Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback.

    Gordon can return to game action in Week 13. There's no telling how he'll play now that he's cleaned up his life. Gordon has admitted that he played inebriated (drunk or high) most of the time...even dating back to his college days at Baylor. Fantasy owners with bench space should grab Gordon now as a lottery ticket pick.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Kamara has been a great find for the Saints and for fantasy owners. His all-purpose ability gives him RB1 upside every week in PPR leagues even though Mark Ingram is the lead back in New Orleans.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Woodhead should be back by Week 11, and fantasy owners in leagues with bench space can go ahead and add him now. Monitor his status leading up to Week 11 as Woodhead looked like he was going to have a large role for the Ravens offense before this injury. He's got RB2 upside for fantasy owners in PPR leagues when healthy.

    Bryant was suspended for the Steelers game in Week 8, and the team had a bye last week. He should play in Week 10 on the road against the Colts. So long as Bryant is out of the doghouse, he's got flex appeal for fantasy owners.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Gase is just happy he has RBs that will listen to him, take their work home and study hard (cough, Jay Ajayi, cough). We'll see Drake continue as the lead back, and he's got RB2 upside in this role. Williams has flex appeal in PPR leagues because of his use as a receiver out of the backfield.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    This seems different from the 'dreaded vote of confidence' that some players get right before they get benched. Stewart doesn't have a history of fumbling (two fumbles lost in all of 2016), so the team should continue to use him as a primary ball carrier. Rookie Christian McCaffrey really isn't built to be a grinder between the tackles, so expect Stewart to maintain his standard role going forward so long as he hangs onto the rock.

    Darren Fells is getting more snaps than Ebron and now he's getting the starting nod. Ebron is not having a breakout year in 2017 as some expected.

Ebron will always be remembered as the guy the Lions selected instead of Odell Beckham Jr. in the 2014 NFL draft.

    McKinnon took over in the backfield once rookie RB Dalvin Cook was hurt and done for the year. His ability as a receiver makes him a standout player for fantasy owners in PPR leagues.

    IND - Rift brewing with Irsay and QB Andrew Luck?

    Source: WTHR.com - Bob Kravitz

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) could have a rift brewing with owner Jim Irsay, in the opinion of WTHR.com's Bob Kravitz. Former Colts head coach Tony Dungy told Dan Patrick during a commercial cut-in of his radio show that Irsay told him what he believes holding Luck back is more mental than it is physical. Dungy followed up with Irsay told him six weeks ago that the injury is in Luck's head now. Patrick brought up the fact that Irsay expected Luck back at the start of the season or early in the season, Dungy replied: 'They obviously believed it because they did nothing to prepare for him not being there.'

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    It seems like there's always something brewing between the Irsay family and Colts quarterbacks (see John Elway and Peyton Manning). Luck should have been back by now, but a setback to the shoulder injury caused him to be shut down for the year. If Luck is right post-injury, he can still be a top-10 quarterback in the NFL and for fantasy owners. Whether or not he's staying with the Colts makes for great sports talk radio.

    while I fully agree the NFL owners nothing but blood sucking, greedy, miserable pos that do anything for a buck. Not so sure that was the case in that decision, even if it was it was much more likely concern for the optics of making them play than the home revenue steam.

    Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett was cut Wednesday, Nov. 8, according to a source.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    The Packers have paid him $8 million so far in his 3-year contract, but by declaring him 'failed to disclose a medical condition' they could go after some of that money. Bennett has previously stated that he wants to retire after this year. He's now exposed to the waiver process and there might be enough interest to get him on another team before the season is over.

    GB - Green Bay to stick with RBBC?

    Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy reportedly liked the rotation of RBs Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery in Week 9 versus the Detroit Lions and intends to stick with a committee approach, with Montgomery handling third-down work.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    It's not great news for either back. Jones is the starter and the lead back who should get the most carries on a weekly basis. Montgomery, the converted WR, will continue as the primary receiving back. Jones has RB2 value in this situation while Montgomery should produce more like a RB4 or deep flex play.

    The Bengals need to stop messing around with any sort of RBBC and just see what rookie RB Joe Mixon can do with a true featured role. With Hill banged up (and with no reason to rush him back), we may just see Mixon continue to get more snaps each week.

    That's cool, but the Seattle backfield hasn't exactly been churning out a ton of fantasy points. Prosise is a dangerous receiving back, and in PPR leagues there's a chance he could be a weekly option as a flex play. We'll wait and see, but grab him and stash him in PPR formats if you can just in case.

    Friday Update

    DAL - RB Ezekiel Elliott suspension upheld

    Source: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero
    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's stay on his pending suspension was lifted Thursday, Nov. 6. He will begin serving his six-game suspension this week. Thus, he will not be able to return until Week 16.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will all get some work, but we'll have to see how it shakes out to be sure. We think Morris will get most of the carries and likely produce enough to be a solid flex play at the very least. McFadden and Smith, however, are a bit less reliable and while you can plug them in for the same purpose, their floor is a bit lower.

    DAL - RB Alfred Morris expected to start

    Source: The Dallas Morning News - Jon Machota

    Dallas Cowboys RB Alfred Morris is expected to be the starting running back against Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 because of RB Ezekiel Elliott's suspension. RB Rod Smith would serve as the No. 2 running back and be a significant part of the game plan. RB Darren McFadden could be active as the No. 3 running back.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    While Morris is going to get the lead back slot, there's enough buzz around Darren McFadden and Rod Smith to make us leery of investing too much in Morris too soon. More than likely, we will need to see how this shakes out over the next couple of weeks. Morris is your best bet right now, but more as a flex or an RB3.

    Bennett did pretty well for himself, and the Patriots, last time he was in New England. It may take a week or two for him to get fully involved in the offense though. He's battling a shoulder injury, so his Week 10 status for the Sunday night game against the Broncos is unknown at this time.

    Brock Osweiler returning to the fold may not be the long-term solution - or even a good one - but it should be an improvement over Trevor Simeon. That's why we like Thomas as a WR1 play this week against a New England defense that has not really been successful against the pass.

    The Rams are a tough matchup to begin with this season, and you add into it the fact that DeShaun Watson is injured and Tom Savage is passing the ball, and it's just a bad combination for Will Fuller. Fuller had been a very nice play most weeks, but Savage just isn't able to get him the ball in the same way that Watson was. He is a WR 5 this week due to matchup and quarterback issues.

    This hasn't been Bryant's season really, and that's not just because of injuries. If he plays and he's hurt, he won't be much help to the Cowboys or your fantasy teams. We think that Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley will be better plays this weekend.

    Seattle is most successful when they play hurry up/no huddle, they can cover up a lot of their flaws if they played that the whole game. Why not let your best players run the offense rather than force a run game with mediocre running back and lousy offensive line.

    Saturday Update

    NE - TE Martellus Bennett has torn rotator cuff

    Source: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (shoulder) was cut by the Green Bay Packers because of a torn rotator cuff, according to sources. He could try to play through it or could land on Injured Reserve.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    The Patriots claiming Bennett also helped their compensatory pick calculation. They might also see a chance for him to play in a limited fashion, but he won't have fantasy value unless Rob Gronkowski gets hurt. He is at practice, so it looks like the Patriots will get him on the field soon.

    SF - C.J. Beathard to start Week 10

    Source: 49ers.com
    San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard will start in Week 10 against the New York Giants, head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed Friday, Nov. 10.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Jimmy Garoppolo could start in Week 12 after the team's bye next week. The 49ers might want to protect their investment by not starting Garoppolo in one of the worst offenses in the league, but they should also want to see what they have before paying him for the long term. They probably already have made up their minds to give Garoppolo a long term deal at market value, so the need to see him play this year might not be a consideration.

    Joe Mixon will get most of the work in the backfield against Tennessee this week, but that has only proven to be worth a low ceiling flex play behind the subpar Bengals offensive line.

    Bryant has assured us that he will play, although we can't be sure of how effective he'll be. He's in an afternoon game, so make sure you have a hedge on your bench just in case he is inactive. Consider him a boom/bust WR2/WR3/Flex this week against Atlanta.

    Hilton was already a dicey week to week start when he wasn't facing one of the worst teams in the league or the Texans. This issue should be enough to make you bench him against the Steelers.

    Lee has actually performed well when he has been questionable. He could draw Casey Hayward at times, but Lee is worth a look as a WR3/Flex if bye weeks or injuries have thinned your receivers.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    Fiedorowicz is a viable desperation play. He should assume his old role right away. While Tom Savage is not an effective quarterback, he could lean on Fiedorowicz as a short and intermediate target in the middle of the field.

    Sunday Morning Injury Updates

    QUARTERBACK

    Teddy Bridgewater | Knee | Not Listed | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - Full | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Fourteen months after a knee dislocation necessitating a 9-1-1 call and reconstruction of multiple knee ligaments, Bridgewater returns to Minnesota's active gameday roster this week. He'll back up starter Case Keenum but he is ready to play if needed. Bridgewater told reporters he's confident in his recovery and has done everything necessary in practice to be ready for live game action. It's an inspiring and impressive recovery from a career-threatening injury.


    Others of note:
    Cam Newton (shoulder), Jay Cutler (ribs), and Blake Bortles (chest) have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Jameis Winston (shoulder) has been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    RUNNING BACK

    Devonta Freeman | Knee | Not listed | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    After a cryptic Monday press conference during which Dan Quinn told reporters Freeman would be limited in practice but wouldn't say why, Freeman fully practiced on Thursday and Friday and is not listed on Atlanta's game status report. This is the second consecutive week Freeman has been limited by injury but cleared for a full return by game day. His snap counts and usage have been very consistent since the Falcons' Week 5 bye -- 40-45 snaps, 10-12 rushes, 3-5 targets per game. Expect that snap percentage and workload to continue this week.


    C.J. Anderson
    | Ankle / Illness | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Full

    Anderson missed Thursday's practice due to illness but was back to a full practice on Friday. The full Friday practice is a strong indication Anderson's ankle injury will not significantly limit his this week. Anderson's usage has been inconsistent recently, however, and it's not clear whether the Broncos will trust him with more than 10-15 touches even if he's fully recovered from last week's ankle sprain.


    Damien Williams
    | Illness | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Thurs - DNP | Fri - DNP | Sat - Full

    Williams told reporters he felt much better after Saturday's practice. The Dolphins list him questionable but expect him to play.

    Others of note: Jonathan Stewart (toe) have practiced, is not listed on the game status report, and is expected to play without limitation. Matt Forte (knee) and Jeremy Hill (ankle) has been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    WIDE RECEIVER

    Dez Bryant | Knee / Ankle | Questionable | Likely to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    Bryant plans to play through a minor knee contusion and low-grade high ankle sprain. He told reporters on Thursday he expected to play and was able to participate in drills on Friday. Observers felt he was moving well in practice and Stephen Jones felt good about Bryant's availability when interviewed after practice. It's not clear whether Bryant may be limited. The public comments from Bryant and the team have remained positive since Monday's press conference. It's reasonable to assume Bryant plans to play his usual role. There will be a risk of aggravation during the game or some limitation in his play. I'll update with any overnight notes from Ian Rapoport or Adam Schefter.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Both Schefter and Rapoport report Bryant is expected to play.


    Julio Jones
    | Ankle | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    Jones returned to practice on Friday. Although he was listed as limited, he was observed to be moving without difficulty and Dan Quinn said he looked explosive in his route-running. Jones was certain he'd play earlier in the week and the Falcons removed any lingering doubt about his availability by removing Jones from the game status report. Jones will be at risk of aggravation or compensatory injury this week but his ceiling expectation is always in play when he's not listed on the game status report.


    T.Y. Hilton
    | Groin | Questionable | Game-time Decision


    Practice Participation: Wed - Not Listed | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Hilton left practice on Thursday with a groin injury. Midweek muscle strains are always a difficult read, even when the team clears the player to return to practice the following day. It's difficult to know whether the injury was minor and unlikely to limit the player or the team is concerned about the player's availability and is looking to see how well the injury responds to a limited practice. Multiple Colts' beat writers expect Hilton to play but it's best to consider him a game-time decision until we know more. Look for a Schefter/Rapoport note in the early hours of Sunday morning for more detail.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Hilton is expected to play according to overnight reports. However, I'd still watch for news around pregame warmups to be certain.


    Michael Thomas
    | Ankle | Not Listed | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Not Listed

    The Saints didn't list Thomas on either Friday report -- injury or game status -- and he's expected to play. Thomas said he has been "managing inflammation" his knee over the past 2-3 weeks but implied the limited practice reps during the week were not a major concern. It's reasonable to expect Thomas to see his usual snap count and workload.


    Emmanuel Sanders
    | Ankle | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Full | Fri - Full

    Sanders returned last week and played 29 of the team's 65 offensive snaps in the blowout loss to Philadelphia. Sanders was limping after his lone catch on five targets and limited in practice early this week. The Broncos listed Sanders questionable but the consecutive limited practices on Thursday and Friday suggest he'll play. However, he'll still be working through what was reportedly first expected to be a six-week recovery. It's possible Denver will continue to limit Sanders' snaps as they did last week.


    Marqise Lee
    | Knee | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Lee has been limited in practice for three weeks but continues to play through a knee injury. Lee is coming off his best game of the season and his Thursday practice was an upgrade from last week. He is expected to play this week and should see his usual workload.


    Danny Amendola
    | Knee | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Amendola played through his knee injury in Week 8 but remains limited in practice. Amendola has had only one week with more than 40 snaps but his target counts were consistently in 4-8 range. With Chris Hogan ruled out with a shoulder injury, Amendola will likely be asked to take a higher number of snaps this week.


    Jamison Crowder
    | Hamstring | Questionable | Expected to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Crowder looked fluid in individual drills and told reporters throughout the week he was planning to play against Minnesota. Watch for unexpected news through Sunday morning but Crowder should return and see close to his usual workload.


    Kenny Golladay
    | Hamstring | Questionable | Game-time Decision


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Golladay returned to a limited practice last Friday and has finally managed to string together a run of consecutive practices. The Lions rarely provide information about their injured players but beat writers tentatively expect Golladay to return. I'd be more confident in that assessment if Golladay had been cleared for a full practice. If Golladay is active, he'll likely see time in a limited number of packages.


    Others of note: Stefon Diggs
    (tooth), Demaryius Thomas (hamstring), Eric Decker (illness), Will Fuller (knee), Curtis Samuel (ankle), and Brandon LaFell (hamstring), have practiced, are not listed on the game status report, and are expected to play without limitation. Chris Hogan (shoulder), Kamar Aiken (hamstring), and Trent Taylor (ribs) have been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    TIGHT END

    Delanie Walker | Ankle | Questionable | Expected to Play

    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - DNP | Fri - Limited

    Walker was more effective than I expected last week after barely practicing for two weeks with a bone bruise near his ankle. The Titans again limited Walker in practice this week but have proven time and again they are willing to play veterans regardless of practice time. I expect Walker to play and likely see his usual workload -- but the Titans have a quick turnaround to a road Thursday night game in Pittsburgh. That may play into their decision-making with Walker this week.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Walker is expected to play today.


    Jordan Reed
    | Hamstring | Questionable | Likely Inactive


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - DNP

    Reed was back to practice on Wednesday and Thursday for individual drills but did not practice on Friday. Jay Gruden told reporters the team wanted to give him more rest and planned to continue evaluating his progress through the weekend. While that may prove true, it's still rare to see a player not practice at the end of the week and play. We should know more on Sunday morning but plan on Reed playing a limited role at best.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Not surprisingly, there were multiple overnight reports that Reed will be out today.


    Charles Clay
    | Knee | Questionable | Likely to Play


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - Limited | Fri - Limited

    Video on Clay last week showed he was still recovering from his knee injury. His straight-line speed looked to be close to form but there was no indication he was cleared to cut or for contact. Clay's multiple limited practices are reassuring and most team observers have expected him to return to play since watching Wednesday practice. He's listed questionable and the Bills haven't said anything about his availability yet. Watch the pregame inactives for clarity. If Clay is active, his role could be limited but expect him to see close to his usual targets.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Clay is expected to play today.


    Niles Paul
    | Concussion | Questionable | Likely inactive


    Practice Participation: Wed - Limited | Thurs - DNP | Fri - DNP

    Paul admitted to amnesia of the hit that resulted in his concussion. That's often a symptom that leads to a longer recovery period. Paul was limited on Wednesday after not practicing last week but did not return to practice on Thursday or Friday. That's not the profile of a player who is expected to see the independent neurologist for clearance. Expect him to be inactive this week.


    Martellus Bennett
    | Shoulder | Questionable | Awaiting Information


    Practice Participation: Wed - DNP | Thurs - FA | Fri - Limited

    Bennett was released by the Packers, posted a scaldingly derisive opinion of his treatment by the Packers, signed with the Patriots, then practiced with New England on Friday after announcing he would have surgery on his shoulder earlier in the week. If Bennett has a torn rotator cuff as reported earlier this week, he may be able to play despite limited range of motion. It's not yet known whether the Patriots will clear him to play a limited role.

    ***Sunday AM Update: Ian Rapoport tweeted Bennett has "a shot" to play.

    Others of note
    : Vernon Davis (hand) practiced, is not listed on the game status report, and is expected to play without limitation. George Kittle (ankle) have been declared out. I'll update return to play expectations on all inactive players in Monday's column.


    DEFENSIVE PLAYER NOTES

    EDGE:

    Everson Griffen did not practice much coming out of the Vikings' bye. He told reporters he was fine after suffering a foot injury late in the Week 8 game. The team expects him to play today.

    Olivier Vernon may be back. The team's official Twitter account quoted Vernon as saying he "feels great" and looking forward to seeing "how Sunday goes." Vernon may see fewer than his usual number of snaps as the Giants get him back into football shape.

    Ezekiel Ansah's designation changed this week. It's now a back injury limiting him. After not practicing this week, Ansah is doubtful and likely inactive.

    DEFENSIVE LINE:
    Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy were both limited early this week but returned to fully practice. Despite the questionable tag, both are expected to play their usual number of snaps.
    LINEBACKER:
    Denzel Perryman returns for the Chargers this week. He's practiced for two weeks and should be close to his pre-injury form.
    B.J. Goodson, Devon Kennard, and Keenan Robinson are all out for the Giants. Jonathan Casillas and Calvin Munson are likely to play through their injuries.
    Washington did not update Zach Brown's condition after a Thursday ankle injury limited his practice. I tentatively expect him to play but am awaiting any additional news.
    DEFENSIVE BACK:
    Morgan Burnett is again inactive in Green Bay.
    Kenny Vaccaro will not play today but continues to say his injury will not require a long absence. We'll see on that.

    Sunday Update

    MIN - QB Teddy Bridgewater better than ever?

    Source: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero

    Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is throwing the ball better than he was before his knee injury, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    It would be great if Bridgewater can get back in the starting lineup and thrive with the Vikings. He's back this week, but it will be as a reserve behind Case Keenum. We'd have to see the Vikings struggle with Keenum as the starter before Bridgewater would get that top spot.

    LAR - RB Lance Dunbar activated from PUP list

    Source: TheRams.com - Myles Simmons

    Los Angeles Rams RB Lance Dunbar (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Nov. 11.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Dunbar is back in action for the Rams, and he'll be the no2 RB for them behind superstar Todd Gurley. We could see Dunbar mixed in as a change-of-pace back when Gurley needs a breather.

    JAX - WR Dede Westbrook still not added to roster

    Source: FirstCoastNews.com - Mike Kaye

    Jacksonville Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook (core) was not activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 11, and will not play in Week 10.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    The Jaguars have one more week to decide whether they will add Westbrook to their roster or keep him on the Reserve/Injured list for the rest of the season. He's a big play waiting to happen, and we appreciate the upside he could bring to the offense in Jacksonville.

    IND - QB Andrew Luck seeking treatment in Europe

    Source: ESPN - Mike Wells and Chris Mortensen

    Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has traveled to Europe in order to seek treatment on his surgically repaired shoulder, according to sources.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    This sounds like a stem-cell procedure, although the true nature of the treatment is unknown. Luck was supposed to be back in action already, but a setback earlier this season knocked him out for the year. With treatment (and avoiding surgery), Luck should be ready for 2018.

    CAR - RB Jonathan Stewart will be in uniform

    Source: NFL

    Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (toe) fully participate in practice Saturday, Nov. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 10. The Panthers did not hold a practice Saturday, so his practice designation is an estimation.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Stewart played a season-low 21 snaps against the Falcons in Week 9. He also fumbled twice in that game, so don't be surprised if we see a bit more of Christian McCaffrey toting the rock.

    MIA - RB Damien Williams listed as questionable

    Source: The Miami Herald - Adam H. Beasley

    Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams (illness) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 11, but is listed as questionable for Week 10.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Williams is not a great runner but he can make plays as a receiver out of the backfield. We'll see Kenyan Drake as the lead back with Williams serving as a change-of-pace threat.

    ARI - Arizona to add QB Matt Barkley

    Source: ESPN - Chris Mortensen

    Free-agent QB Matt Barkley (49ers) will be signing with the Arizona Cardinals, according to sources.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    The Cardinals need Barkley as a reserve passer behind Blaine Gabbert. We could see Gabbert as the team's starter if Drew Stanton (knee) misses time.

    ARI - QB Drew Stanton could miss time

    Source: ESPN - Chris Mortensen

    Arizona Cardinals QB Drew Stanton (knee) suffered a sprained knee during the team's Week 10 game and could miss a week or two, according to sources.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    QB Blaine Gabbert will start Week 11 if Stanton remains sidelined. We don't think the difference between Stanton and Gabbert is that wide.

    CIN - RB Jeremy Hill placed on IR

    Source: Bengals.com

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Nov. 11.
    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]
    Hill only logged 37 carries in seven games during the 2017 season. He wasn't doing much anyway as this ankle problem bothered him. Without Hill, the Bengals will just turn to more of rookie RB Joe Mixon.

    NO - WR Michael Thomas removed from injury report

    Source: NFL.com

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) no longer appears on the injury report for Week 10's game versus the Buffalo Bills.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Thomas logged a full practice for the Saints on Friday. He should produce like a mid-range WR1 against the Bills in Week 10.

    HOU - QB Tom Savage better prepared

    Source: HoustonTexans.com - Drew Dougherty

    Houston Texans QB Tom Savage had a full week to practice with the first-team offense ahead of the Week 10 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, and head coach Bill O'Brien said it is a 'big deal' for Savage to have that practice time under his belt.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Savage might be better prepared but it doesn't mean it will make him any good. The Texans offense just isn't as appealing as they were with rookie QB Deshaun Watson under center.

    DAL - WR Dez Bryant moving well

    Source: The Dallas Morning News - Brandon George
    Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (ankle, knee) was moving well during practice Friday, Nov. 10, according to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    Bryant has a couple of injuries to watch for moving forward. He should play, but he's clearly not at 100 percent. He's a WR1 against the Falcons on Sunday in what could be a high-scoring game. With Bryant a little banged up, the Cowboys may have a few more targets for WRs like Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley.

    NYJ - Extended absence for RB Matt Forte?

    Source: ESPNNewYork.com - Rich Cimini

    New York Jets RB Matt Forte's (knee) knee injury is creating concern that it could keep him sidelined beyond Week 10, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.

    [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

    It sounds like this injury is going to keep him out for some time. Forte has been dealing with swelling in the knee and it's been getting worse. Bilal Powell is the Jets lead back now (again), and rookie Eli McGuire will serve as a change-of-pace back.
