  • Luke Stocker TB TE
    Buccaneers' Luke Stocker: Not practicing Wednesday
    11m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Luke Stocker (ankle) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

    Stocker did not practice all last week and also missed the team's Week 3 matchup with the Rams. Stocker should be considered questionable unless Tampa Bay updates his status otherwise. With Stocker out against the Rams, it was fellow tight end Cameron Brate that saw the biggest increase in usage, catching five balls on 10 targets for 46 yards and two touchdowns.

    Darius Butler (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday and his return timetable is being regarded as week-to-week, Kevin Bowen of Indianapolis Colts .com reports.

    Butler continues to deal with the Grade 1 hamstring strain he suffered during Week 2's loss to the Broncos. His status for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars remains up in the air, although he may need additional time to heal.

    Giants' Shane Vereen: Undergoes surgery Wednesday
    25m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Shane Vereen underwent surgery on his torn triceps Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Initially, Vereen's return timetable was believed to be two months, but Raanan relayed that the running back likely won't achieve full health until late December. In the event the New York Giants are in playoff contention at that point, they could (and very likely will) activate Vereen from the Reserve/Injured list. Upon his potential return, his role could include anything from No. 1 RB to third-down pass-catching back, depending on the health of Rashad Jennings (thumb) and company.

    Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not participat in Wednesday's practice.

    Shorts was inactive for Sunday's game agains the Rams, and it looks like he is still dealing with the hamstring injury that he suffered from on his first catch as a Buccaneer in Week 2. Consider Shorts questionable until his status is updated later this week.

    Davis will have to participate in practice at some point throughout the week in order to suit up Sunday according to coach Mike Tomlin. Davis is eager to get back on the field and back-up Mike Mitchell at free safety.

    Matt Ryan (thumb) practiced in full Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    While leading the Atlanta Falcons to victory Monday in New Orleans, Ryan sustained an injury to his left thumb but remained in the contest, completing 20 of 30 passes overall for 240 yards and two touchdowns. Considering the ailment is afflicting his non-throwing hand, Wednesday's uninhibited practice isn't unexpected, but the Falcons will likely give Ryan the all-clear upon releasing the final injury report of the week.

    Jay Cutler (thumb) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    After a week in which he didn't practice and subsequently didn't play due to a sprained right thumb, Cutler's presence in drills was likely a welcome sight for the injury-plagued squad. As head coach John Fox mentioned Monday, the Chicago Bears will evaluate Cutler "day-to-day," so his activity level will be one to monitor as the week unfolds. If he's unable to take the field in Week 4, his primary backup, Brian Hoyer, will again be under center.

    Patriots' Jacoby Brissett: Able to throw at practice Wednesday
    4h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Both Jacoby Brissett (right thumb) and Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder) threw passes during the early portion of Wednesday's practice, CSN New England reports.

    With top QB Tom Brady set to serve one last game of his four-game suspension to start the season, Brissett and Garoppolo remain the New England Patriots ' only two rostered signal-callers as Sunday's game against the Bills approaches. The presence of the duo at practice Wednesday bodes well for one (if not both) of them being available this weekend, though the identity of the team's Week 4 starter has yet to be revealed.

    Jimmy Garoppolo (sprained right AC joint) "worked on pocket mobility and lighter throws" during the early stages of Wednesday's practice, the Boston Herald reports.

    The same applies to Jacoby Brissett, with the report encouragingly noting that Garoppolo didn't appear to be favoring his shoulder and that Brissett didn't seem bothered by his right thumb issue. At this point, it looks like at least one, if not both, of the New England Patriots ' signal-callers will be available for Sunday's game against the Bills, though who might draw the start for the contest has yet to be determined.

    Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo: Available at start of practice
    1d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) were both present for the start of Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

    While a return after just three days off was clearly too much to ask, Garoppolo could be ready to face Buffalo on Sunday, two weeks after spraining the AC joint in his right shoulder. It seems the New England Patriots expect Garoppolo and/or Brissett to be available, as the team hasn't made a roster move at quarterback since Thursday's win over the Texans. In any case, there's only one more game left for the taking, with Tom Brady set to return from his suspension in Week 5.

    Tevin Coleman (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Coleman has yet to break four yards per carry in a given game this season, but his pass-catching chops and red-zone prowess should combine to keep him in the hearts and minds of owners this season. As evidence, he's hauled in 10 of 11 passes in 2016 at a clip of 16.7 YPC, while hitting paydirt three times in Monday night's win at New Orleans. A limited session Wednesday shouldn't hinder his ability to play in Week 4, but he has two practices left to clear up his health.

    Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    Stewart has already missed one contest as a result of a hamstring injury suffered in Week 2, and a DNP to kick off the week isn't exactly an endorsement that his health is improving. In any case, two practices remain to make an impression on the coaching staff in advance of Sunday's game in Atlanta. If he's indeed inactive this weekend, Cameron Artis-Payne is on pace to handle the majority of the carries, while Fozzy Whittaker serves in a change-of-pace role.

    This is the first we've heard of any issue with Crowell's knee, which suggests it's not a serious injury. However, his practice availability for the rest of the week is something to keep an eye on, and if he's somehow unable to suit up against the Redskins on Sunday, Duke Johnson figures to be in line for a featured role.

    Hilton headed into this past Sunday's game against the Chargers with a questionable designation, yet played 62 snaps in the game, en route to logging a 8/174/1 stat line on 11 targets. With no reported setbacks, we suspect that Wednesday's non-participation at practice was maintenance-related for the Indianapolis Colts ' top wideout.

    For the second week in a row, Jackson has started game preparations with a no-show at practice. After missing a portion of Sunday's win against the Giants as a result of knee and ankle injuries, the Washington Redskins may continue to hold him out of drills with their top wideout's health in mind.

    Chandler Catanzaro connected on a career-long 60-yard field goal and one point-after attempt in Sunday's loss in Buffalo.

    The Arizona Cardinals ' offense has looked either brilliant or brutal this season, and Catanzaro hasn't benefited from the lack of consistency, earning four field-goal and nine extra-point attempts through three contests. With 17 points total, his 16-game pace equates to 91 points, which is a far cry from his average of 125.5 in his first two campaigns in Arizona. Head coach Bruce Arians is sure to right the ship at some point, but 22 other kickers currently have more points on their respective ledgers at this point.

    After missing kicks in each of his first two games, Lutz's bomb at the end of the first half was huge for his confidence as well as his job security. Backed by the New Orleans Saints ' high-powered offense, Lutz should continue to be a viable fantasy option, and his big leg offers the potential for some high-scoring kicks in fantasy leagues where additional points are awarded for long field goals.

    Justin Tucker made all four his field-goal attempts and his only PAT in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

    The Baltimore Ravens seemed oddly content to settle for a long field goal with the game on the line, but it perhaps makes a bit more sense for a team that has one of the best kickers in league history. Given his incredible accuracy and leg strength, Tucker is one of the few kickers that deserves fantasy consideration even if he's attached to a lousy offense. The Baltimore offense seems mediocre more so than bad, which makes Tucker one of the better options at his position. He connected from 54, 43, 42 and 37 yards in Sunday's game, with the longest of those putting the Ravens ahead with 62 seconds remaining. Fire him up with confidence Week 4 against Oakland, even though he doesn't particularly like kicking at his home stadium, with career splits that back up his assertion that it's a difficult place to make field goals.

The kicker converted a 48-yard field goal on the Carolina Panthers ' opening drive, but later hit the right upright on a 54-yard attempt during the second quarter.

    Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict suspended three games
    01/12/2016 • By RotoWire Staff

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
