    NFL Player News - Week 5

    Courtesy of Footballguys.com


    CHI - QB Mitchell Trubisky should avoid surgery

    Source: ESPN - Adam Schefter


    Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is reportedly dealing with a dislocated left shoulder - with a slight labrum tear - but will not require surgery and should be able to return to action 'sooner than later' based on initial MRI results, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.


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


    The Bears have some time with Trubisky on the shelf but it may not be as long as originally feared. He will reportedly travel with the team to London in Week 5 but not play versus the Oakland Raiders, and there is optimism he will play following the team's Week 6 bye.

    Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen is expected to start Week 5 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

    There's no timetable for the return of Cam Newton and some worry that he won't play again this season. We'll watch Newton's situation as the season rolls on, but Allen should be the presumed starter going forward.

    NYJ - QB Sam Darnold's status for Week 5 in limbo

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (illness) has been cleared for non-contact work and can begin throwing but has yet to receive clearance on returning to full practice, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini, who believes Darnold's status for Week 5 is 'up in the air.'


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


    Darnold wants to come back ASAP but the team needs to be careful with him. We'll see if he can do more as the week of practice rolls on. Luke Falk would start against the Eagles in Week 5 if Darnold can't go.

    Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol after leaving the team's Week 4 game. Head coach Matt Patricia said the team is not concerned about Hockenson's shoulder.


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


    The shoulder injury is not the concern, but seeing Hockenson land on his head after trying to leap two Chiefs defenders is a concern. We'll see if he can get through the protocol this week. The Lions have Jesse James and Logan Thomas to work at the tight end position if/when Hockenson misses time.

    Haskins is their first-round pick and quarterback of the future, but this is a bad matchup for the rookie. We'll see if they throw Keenum out there in this tough start and perhaps replace him with Haskins if/when the game is out of control.

    Coleman has played in one game so far this year and has been missing time with this high-ankle sprain since then. If he's not able to go, the 49ers will march on with Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeffrey Wilson in a 3-headed RBBC.

    Williams was carted off the field last Thursday night but he's doing well after being released from the hospital. It would take a minor miracle (in our opinion) for him to be out there in Week 5 against the Cowboys. That means Aaron Jones gets most all the work in the backfield against the Cowboys.

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


    There has never really been a timetable for Green's return. Some speculate that it might have a little something to do with the fact that Green is in a contract year and looking for a new deal. Either way, the Bengals move forward with Tyler Boyd and John Ross as their top two targets. Auden Tate is also getting more work in 3-WR sets.

    Wednesday Update

    NYG - WR Golden Tate activated

    Source: ESPN - Adam Schefter


    New York Giants WR Golden Tate was activated from the suspended list Tuesday, Oct. 1.


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


    Tate will make his Giants debut Sunday against the Vikings. He's a solid veteran who can provide some boost to the offense because of his run-after-the-catch ability. It will be interesting to see how he's used as a slot receiver...mainly because that's a spot where Sterling Shepard regularly lines up. Tate has deep flex appeal in his season debut.

    We hope you started Ross while you could. He's a fast and talented player but he's banged up quite often. Without Ross, the Bengals turn more to guys like Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate. Tyler Eifert should get plenty of work as well.

    Look at what both James Conner and Jaylen Samuels did (as runners and receivers) against the Bengals on Monday night. That could mostly be Johnson this week. With his usage as a receiver (and with WR Christian Kirk banged up), Johnson should get a heavy workload.

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) was not medically ruled out during the second half of the Week 4 game against the Indianapolis Colts. However, head coach Frank Reich explained that the offense was in hurry-up mode and that it is typically RB Nyheim Hines' role.


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


    Keep an eye on this situation. If Mack has to miss time with this ankle injury that would mean more Jordan Wilkins. Hines is set as their 2-minute back. If Mack was not medically ruled out then he should be good to go for Week 5 -- but watch his practice status during the week.

    This is the second time in his three-year career that Ross has been on Injured Reserve. He could be 'Designated to Return' after eight weeks but the team might decide to just shut him down for the rest of the year. Ross is super fast and talented but he's never played a full 16-game season in his career. The Bengals move forward with Tyler Boyd as their No. 1 receiver and Auden Tate as their No. 2 receiver.

    New York Giants RB Wayne Gallman (neck) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2. Head coach Pat Shurmur said it was game soreness, and his status for Week 5 isn't in question.

    Gallman is their lead back in a tough matchup against the Vikings this week. He's an RB2 or flex play for Fantasy GMs in Week 5.

    Darnold has yet to be cleared for contact but he's pushing to get back out there in Week 5. The Jets aren't going anywhere this season and need to be cautious with their franchise quarterback. If Darnold can't play on the road against the Eagles, Luke Falk would get another start at quarterback.

    Its already a month before we knew it since the season kickoff. At this stage i’m curious to see what the general predictions and picks are between the Rams vs Seahawks.

    Friday Update

    LAC - RB Melvin Gordon to play in Week 5

    Source: 1 No Source


    Los Angeles Chargers RB Melvin Gordon will play and could start Sunday, Oct. 6, when the Chargers host the Denver Broncos, head coach Anthony Lynn said Thursday, Oct. 3. 'He's getting more work (in practice) this week, and he's definitely going to have a workload this week, but not too big,' Lynn said during a SiriusXM NFL Radio interview Thursday. 'I want to work him in, but I don't want to overdo it.'


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


    The Chargers are likely to ease Gordon into action this week against the Broncos. That means Austin Ekeler will still get plenty of work. We see Ekeler as a RB1 and Gordon more of a flex play in his debut.

    Hilton's Friday practice will be key. The team has a bye next week so if there's any doubt they should keep Hilton out with the division title and rest of season in mind. Hilton has already aggravated this injury once and had to be kept out so he wouldn't make the injury worse. Either way, Jacoby Brissett, the Colts tight ends, and maybe Zach Pascal in deep leagues become startable options this week.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs said Thursday, Oct. 3, that he 'hasn't communicated' anything to the team about requesting a trade, but added 'there is truth to all rumors, I guess' while acknowledging that he has some dissatisfaction with the offense. I can't stand up here and act like everything is OK, because it's obviously not,' Diggs said. 'What I can say is, at this point, I'm just trying to work through it.'


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


    The most likely outcome here is Diggs plays out his contract with the Vikings, but there's a crack in the door no matter what the team says publicly. Don't expect the offense to change dramatically in a way that would satisfy Diggs or Adam Theilen's dissatisfaction with the run heavy approach.

    Barkley was supposed to miss at least a month with this ankle injury. There's a chance he could be back this week but that might be a bit outlandish. Wayne Gallman has a neck injury and has been limited in practice this week. He's still the lead back while Barkley is out.

    New York Jets QB Sam Darnold (illness) has been limited in practice this week and while he said Thursday, Oct. 3, he feels ready to return Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, he won't risk his long-term health. 'It's a tough thing because you want to stay safe,' he said Thursday. 'I want to make sure that I'm safe out there and I'm not going to die.' Darnold will undergo an ultrasound and a blood test Friday to ensure his previously enlarged spleen is suitable for playing.


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


    Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder are almost unstartable if Darnold is out and the Eagles defense is a must play, but the whole offense comes back to live against the Eagles weak pass defense if he gets the green light.

    There is hope Smith-Schuster will be able to play on Sunday, but it will be difficult to expect that if he doesn't practice Friday. If he's out, Diontae Johnson would be the de facto #1 with more targets but better coverage, and James Washington would get an extended look.

    Conner is not on a good track this week. The Steelers basically require players to practice if they are going to play.

    Williams has a chance to return but the Packers medical staff is conservative. Aaron Jones becomes a safer play if Williams is out. Adams is almost certain to miss the game and it might not be good for his season-long outlook if he does play.

    CLE - WR Odell Beckham Jr. not getting fair shake?

    Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) has been victimized by too many uncalled defensive holding/pass interference calls this season, in the opinion of Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens. 'Here is what I think is difficult: for Odell not to be able to run a route without getting grabbed,' Kitchens said at his Thursday, Oct. 3 news conference. 'I think that is what frustrates him. We are working on him just staying to course, and he does a good job of staying of course. I will just say that.'

    Sunday Update

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) on Saturday, Oct. 5, was downgraded out for the team's Week 5 game at Washington.

    The Patriots backfield is a little less cluttered with Burkhead out. Sony Michel should be the lead ball-carrier while James White should be the top receiving back.

    A good sign for Brees here. He had thumb surgery a couple of weeks ago and initially had a six-week timetable for his return. The plan was to have him ready around Week 10 but Brees may be ready sooner than that. In the meantime, Teddy Bridgewater remains as the team's starter.

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


    Singletary has been working his way back from this hamstring injury slowly but surely. He's not the fastest back out there, so a hamstring injury can really limited the juice he has on the field. Singletary is a talented rookie and capable of being fantasy relevant even with a reserve role behind Frank

    Daniel is the starter against the Raiders, Bray is the backup. Both have experience under Nagy from working together in Kansas City. Bray has a big arm but say-it-don't-spray-it accuracy. It's unlikely he would look good if forced into duty.

    Hunt is still serving his 8-game suspension. It's great depth to have when Hunt returns, but we still imagine Chubb will get the majority of the workload. Hunt is a fantastic handcuff for Fantasy GMs because the team wouldn't miss a beat on the ground if Chubb went down.

    Diggs has been fined for missing early week practices already but he's likely to play in this game against the Giants. It is a great matchup against a weak Giants secondary but the Vikings will establish the run first and foremost. That makes Diggs more of a flex play in Week 5.
