Player Notes

  • Diontae Johnson (toe) held out of practice
    Diontae Johnson (toe) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Johnson left Sunday's game against the Titans after 15 targets, limping off with trainers. He just returned from a back injury that kept him out for Week 6. A massive game against the Ravens is in store on Sunday, and the Steelers are obviously better with their top target on the field. Continue to monitor the injury reports each day this week. 41 minutes ago

  • Arians: Antonio Brown will be ready for Week 9
    Bucs coach Bruce Arians said WR Antonio Brown will be "ready to go" for Week 9 against the Saints.

    Advice: Arians adds that Brown "looks fantastic" and is already participating in meetings and strength work. The Bucs are considered one of the top teams in the NFL through seven weeks of the season, but adding a volatile ingredient like Brown to a currently well-designed recipe will either hurt the final product or act as the missing piece, helping it reach its best form. Chris Godwin has been ruled out for Week 8 with a broken finger, so if his Week 9 status is in doubt Brown could be instantly in line for a significant role. Today, 3:51 pm

  • Travis Homer (knee) will not practice on Wednesday
    Seahawks RB Travis Homer (knee contusion) will be held out of practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Homer suffered the injury against the Cardinals and head coach Pete Carroll added the back was "moving better" on Wednesday than earlier in the week. Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde are also dealing with their own injuries, with Carson's appearing to be the most severe. Through six games played, Homer's season-high in touches is five. Today, 3:35 pm

  • Carroll calls Hyde's hamstring 'nothing major'
    Coach Pete Carroll called Carlos Hyde's hamstring tightness "nothing major."  

    Advice: We will update Hyde's designation once his practice status is announced. With Chris Carson a game-time decision, Hyde has a great chance of absorbing Carson's entire workload, an average of 14 touches per game, against the 49ers if he handles this week of practice well. Today, 3:25 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Miles Sanders (knee) misses Wednesday's practice
    Miles Sanders (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice. 

    Advice: Sanders missed Week 7's game last Thursday with the injury, and early reports suggested a 1-2 week timeline for the running back's return. More information will arrive in Thursday and Friday's injury reports. Boston Scott handled 15 touches in Sanders' absence last week, totaling 92 yards. Sunday night's matchup against the Cowboys is an exciting one for whichever lead back gets the call. Today, 3:15 pm

  • Arians labels Fournette his 'nickel' runner
    Bucs coach Bruce Arians has labeled Leonard Fournette his "nickel" running back. 

    Advice: Per reporter Greg Auman, Fournette has supplanted LeSean McCoy in "hurry-up and obvious passing situations." That much was clear in Sunday's rout of the Raiders. The new role has severely narrowed Fournette's committee with Ronald Jones, though RoJo is seemingly still the lead dog on early downs and near the goal line. We probably haven't seen the last development in this never-ending backfield competition. Both Fournette and Jones are in the RB22-28 range for Week 8 against the Giants. Today, 3:07 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Chris Carson (foot) draws 'game-time decision' tag
    Coach Pete Carroll called RB Chris Carson (foot) a game-time decision ahead of Week 8's contest against the 49ers.

    Advice: Just two days ago, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport termed Carson's injury "week-to-week," but Pete Carroll is among the most optimistic of head coaches when referencing injury timelines. Sunday's game against the 49ers is in the 4:00 window, so hopefully more clarity will arrive before lineups are settled in the first window. An educated guess would suggest Carson will sit for at least one week, leaving Carlos Hyde in line for 15 touches. Today, 3:04 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) DNP Wednesday
    Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: He's dealing with a Grade 1 hamstring strain after missing several weeks with an ankle injury. This is shaping up as a lost season for Thomas, but managers should have him for the fantasy stretch run. His Week 8 status is in doubt. Today, 1:49 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Austin Hooper (abdomen) not practicing Wednesday
    Austin Hooper (abdomen) did not practice Wednesday.

    Advice: He's still recovering from an appendectomy that forced him to miss Week 7. Harrison Bryant and David Njoku will fill in again if Hooper is forced to miss another start. Today, 1:25 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Julio Jones (hip) cleared to play against Panthers
    Julio Jones (hip) was removed from the Week 8 injury report and will play Thursday night against the Panthers.

    Advice: Off back-to-back strong games, Jones is a lock-and-load top-six WR1. Today, 1:22 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • N'Keal Harry (concussion) absent Wednesday
    N'Keal Harry (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Harry was knocked out of the Week 7 loss to the 49ers in the first quarter and is in the protocol. He has a combined 19-172-1 line on 32 targets through six games and is well of the fantasy map. Today, 1:19 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Aaron Jones (calf) still DNP at Packers practice
    Aaron Jones (calf) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Coach Matt LaFleur suggested the Packers are going to remain cautious with Jones after they got by with ease against the Texans with Jamaal Williams carrying the load. Green Bay hosts the Vikings in Week 8. Today, 12:10 pm
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Tim Patrick (hamstring) not practicing Wednesday
    Tim Patrick (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Patrick was injured against the Chiefs last Sunday, catching 3-of-4 targets for 44 scoreless yards in the loss. He'd emerged as the Broncos' No. 1 wideout in recent weeks. Today, 11:43 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Colts designate Michael Pittman (calf) to return
    Colts designated WR Michael Pittman (calf) to return from injured reserve.

    Advice: It opens Pittman's 21-day practice window to return from I.R. following his compartment syndrome. Pittman has a meager nine catches for 73 scoreless yards in three games of action. He's well off the redraft radar. Today, 10:56 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Joe Mixon (foot) absent for Bengals on Wednesday
    Joe Mixon (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Mixon is allegedly considered day to day, but coach Zac Taylor has long been coy about his players' true statuses with injuries. We need to see Mixon practice before even thinking he'll be able to play. Giovani Bernard will be a borderline RB1/2 for however long Mixon is sidelined. Cincinnati hosts the Titans in Week 8. Today, 10:52 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Mark Ingram (ankle) not practicing on Wednesday
    Mark Ingram (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Ingram is dealing with sprained ankle and had the bye week to rest up, but he still doesn't seem ready to play this week against the Steelers. If Ingram sits, Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins should form a two-man committee, though we wouldn't put it past the Ravens to get Justice Hill involved in some capacity. Today, 10:47 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Report: Teams have called HOU about Randall Cobb
    The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports teams have called the Texans about the availability of Randall Cobb.

    Advice: Cobb is coming off an 8-95 line on 10 targets against the Packers in Week 7, so this might be the time to sell high on him ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline. The 30-year-old slot man inked a three-year deal with Houston in the offseason and has posted a meager 30-372-2 line on 38 targets through seven games. It wouldn't take much to acquire him. Today, 10:37 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Phillip Lindsay (concussion) absent on Wednesday
    Phillip Lindsay (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: The Broncos host the Chargers in Week 8. If Lindsay can't go, it'll be Melvin Gordon against his former team as the Broncos' workhorse back with Royce Freeman backing him up as a lightly-used No. 2. Today, 10:35 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Andy Dalton (concussion) not practicing Wednesday
    Andy Dalton (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

    Advice: Dalton is in the concussion protocol after taking a wallop from Jon Bostic in Week 7. If Dalton can't go against the Eagles this Sunday, it'll either be rookie Ben DiNucci or Garrett Gilbert under center for the Cowboys. Yikes. Today, 10:33 am
    Week 8 Projected Rank
  • Report: Packers have 'inquired about' Will Fuller
    The Athletic's Aaron Reiss reports the Packers are "among the teams to inquire about" the availability of Will Fuller.

    Advice: Reiss adds that "no deal is imminent," and the Texans aren't interested in a fire sale and "won't trade just to trade." Fuller is in the final year of his rookie deal and obviously needs a new contract after this season. Houston may not be willing to pay him the kind of money he's seeking, so trading him ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline could be their best move to get compensation back in return. Fuller is a top-20 NFL wideout when healthy. Pairing him with Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers would be really fun. Today, 10:28 am
