    • Harry Douglas (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.
      Advice: Douglas got in three full practices last week after hurting his foot in Week 3, but he ended up being inactive Week 4. It's fair to wonder if he suffered a setback. If Douglas is unable to play this week, Devin Hester will be the No. 3.

    • Harry Douglas (foot) is expected to practice this week.
      Advice: Coach Mike Smith presented this news as illuminating in Monday's presser, but it isn't since Douglas practiced every day in Week 4 before failing to suit up against the Vikings. We'd expect Douglas to return against the Giants, but he should be considered legitimately questionable.

    • Harry Douglas (foot) is inactive for Week 4 against the Vikings.
      Advice: It comes as a surprise after Douglas practiced in full all week. He should be okay for Week 5. Devin Hester will see more reps as the No. 3 receiver. The rest of the Falcons' inactives: QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OL James Stone, OT Ryan Schraeder, and DT Cliff Matthews.

    • Harry Douglas (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Vikings.
      Advice: Douglas is expected to play despite the "Q" tag. He practiced in full Wednesday and Thursday, but "didn't go as hard" on Friday. With Roddy White also expected to play Sunday against Minnesota, Douglas will be a borderline WR3/4.

    • Harry Douglas (foot) is practicing in full for Week 4.
      Advice: Barring a setback, Douglas will be ready to rock against the Vikings after suffering what appeared to be a fairly serious foot injury in Week 3. As usual, he'll be a WR4 in standard leagues, and a WR3 in PPR formats.

    • Harry Douglas (foot) is practicing Wednesday.
      Advice: Douglas was held out of Monday's informal session, but is practicing in full on Wednesday. It puts him on track to play this week. Douglas will be a WR3/4 against the Vikings.

    • Harry Douglas (foot) was held out of Monday's practice.
      Advice: However, Douglas was "moving around well" in the informal session. We'll get our first real hint as to Douglas' Week 4 status when the Falcons return to official practice on Wednesday.

    • DeAngelo Williams' ankle is in a hard cast.
      Advice: This after he had the injured ankle in a walking boot earlier this week. It suggests Williams will certainly miss an extended period of time after he revealed to fans on Monday that he's dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Darrin Reaves, Fozzy Whittaker, and Chris Ogbonnaya are expected to handle backfield duties Week 5.

    • DeAngelo Williams told fans at a charity event on Monday that he has a high-ankle sprain and will miss a few weeks.
      Advice: A severe high-ankle sprain usually calls for a 4-6 week timetable. Williams is already doubtful for Week 5, but he's now staring at a multi-game absence if he indeed has a high-ankle sprain. The Panthers' bye doesn't come until Week 12. Fozzy Whittaker, Darrin Reaves, and Chris Ogbonnaya will form a committee against the Bears. Jonathan Stewart (knee) is likely out at least another week.

    • DeAngelo Williams has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle and is headed for further testing Monday.
      Advice: Williams, who sustained the injury in the second quarter Sunday, left the stadium in a walking boot. At least he didn't aggravate the hamstring issue that kept him out of Weeks 2 and 3. With Jonathan Stewart, Mike Tolbert and Fozzy Whittaker all sidelined, the Panthers are down to UDFA Darrin Reaves and practice squad callup Tauren Poole as healthy backs.

    • DeAngelo Williams (thigh) is probable for Week 4 against the Ravens.
      Advice: Williams practiced in full all week and will return to lead-back duties after missing Week 3. Jonathan Stewart (knee) is surprisingly listed as questionable, but is more likely to miss the game than play. Mike Tolbert (leg) is on short-term I.R. That leaves Williams to carry the mail. He's a mid-range RB2 option.

    • DeAngelo Williams (thigh) remained "full" in Thursday's practice.
      Advice: With Mike Tolbert and Jonathan Stewart sidelined, D-Will is ready to carry the mail in his return. Ticketed for a huge workload one week after the Panthers couldn't establish a running game, Williams is squarely on the RB2 radar. He'll be backed up by Darrin Reaves against the Ravens.

    • DeAngelo Williams (thigh) returned to practice Wednesday.
      Advice: As expected. Williams practiced on a limited basis last week, but was still held out of Week 3. With Jonathan Stewart (knee) and Mike Tolbert (leg, short-term I.R.) out, Williams should be a go this week against the Ravens. He'll be on the RB2 radar and could see upwards of 20 touches.

    • The Panthers expect DeAngelo Williams (thigh) to practice on Wednesday.
      Advice: Williams was able to practice last week and ended up being held out, but this puts him on track to return against Baltimore. The Panthers are down to Darrin Reaves as their only healthy running back after losing Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert to injuries. Coach Ron Rivera is confident that Williams will be back for Week 4.

    • Cecil Shorts (hamstring) says he's week-to-week.
      Advice: He won't play this week against the Steelers. With Marqise Lee (hamstring) also out, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns will play every snap at receiver in a favorable matchup. Shorts has become far too injury-prone to hold in fantasy.

    • Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is expected to miss Week 5.
      Advice: This is getting ridiculous. At some point, the Jaguars are going to have to consider either a multi-week absence or injured reserve as they try to sort out their young and muddled receiver corps for rookie QB Blake Bortles. Shorts isn't a must-hold in 12-team re-draft leagues.

    • Cecil Shorts exited Sunday's Week 4 game with a left hamstring injury and is done for the day.
      Advice: Shorts has been battling hamstring problems for as long as we can remember. He had two catches for 25 yards on four targets before departing. One of Shorts' targets resulted in an interception for rookie QB Blake Bortles.
