    10/02/16DEEzekiel AnsahANKLEOUTAnsah (ankle) has been ruled out for the Lions' Week 4 game against the Bears, MLive.com reports.

    Ansah has been sidelined since going down in Week 2 and it is uncertain when he'll be able to return.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16CBAdairius BarnesANKLEQUESTIONABLEBarnes (ankle) has been ruled out for the Lions' matchup against the Packers on Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Barnes was previously considered questionable. His absence limits Detroit to four healthy cornerbacks available to deploy against Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    10/02/16TEEric EbronANKLEQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago.

    Ebron followed Wednesday's absence with a limited showing Thursday and a full practice Friday. He followed the same pattern last week, ultimately catching five passes for 69 yards on eight targets while playing 58 of his team's 68 offensive snaps. Ebron should be fine for Sunday's favorable matchup against an injury-marred Chicago defense.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16DEWallace GilberryABDOMENQUESTIONABLEThe Lions have signed Gilberry, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gilberry, who was limited to 23 tackles and two sacks in 16 games for the Bengals last season, bolsters the Lions' defensive end depth, though his path to IDP relevance hinges on him securing his share of snaps at the position opposite Ziggy Ansah.

    (Updated 04/05/2016)
    10/02/16WRMarvin Jones Jr.HAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEJones (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago.

    A mid-week addition to the injury report, Jones was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. His availability doesn't appear to be in much question, as he didn't show any signs of injury at Friday's practice, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The NFL's leader in receiving yards, Jones will do battle with an injury-marred Chicago secondary that would have been shaky even at full strength.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16LBDeAndre LevyQUADRICEPSOUTLevy (quadriceps) will not play in the Lions' Week 4 game against the Bears, MLive.com reports.

    Levy remains sidelined with an injury to his quadriceps. It's unclear when he'll be able to play again.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TRiley ReiffANKLEQUESTIONABLEThe Lions have picked up the fifth-year option of offensive tackle Riley Reiff, general manager Martin Mayhew has announced.
    10/02/16DEDevin TaylorANKLEQUESTIONABLETaylor (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Packers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Taylor only practiced once during the week, but the Lions may require him to play a full snap count Sunday with Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) expected to miss at least a few games. Through his first two games, Taylor has been able to make an impact at the defensive end spot opposite Ansah, logging eight tackles and 1.5 sacks.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16LBAntwione WilliamsHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEWilliams (hamstring) will not play on Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    With starter DeAndre Levy (quadriceps) also ruled out, the Lions will have just two healthy outside linebackers to deploy against the Packers.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    10/02/16STavon WilsonNECKQUESTIONABLEWilson and Rafael Bush will compete for the Lion's starting strong safety position this offseason, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Back in 2012, then-rookie Wilson played in all 16 games for the Patriots, logging four starts and an equal number of interceptions. In three seasons since, he failed to start a single contest, and picked off just one pass. Now in Detroit, the Illinois product will have the opportunity to reposition himself as an NFL starter this offseason, according to Lions GM Bob Quinn. Glover Quin (ankle) is currently cemented in as their starting free safety, but Wilson will compete with Rafael Bush to patrol the secondary alongside him. However, Bush is the presumptive favorite to win this battle, and the Lions could still further address the safety position in the draft or through the free-agent market.

    (Updated 04/14/2016)
    09/11/16LBJosh BynesKneeOUTBynes (knee) reached an injury settlement, and was cut by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Bynes had been placed on the injured-reserve with a knee injury. The severity of his knee injury is still unknown. He had originally projected to provide linebacker depth for the Lions this season.

    10/02/16SColt AndersonFOOTQUESTIONABLEAnderson (foot) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

    Anderson was limited in practice throughout the week. He serves as depth in the Bills' secondary and his absence shouldn't have a significant impact on the outcome of the game if he's ultimately ruled out.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TECharles ClayKNEEQUESTIONABLEClay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    With wideouts Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas both out this week, Clay could be a key cog in the Bills' Week 4 passing attack, assuming he suits up Sunday, which we expect he will. That said, the tight end's quiet effort this past week against the Cardinals (zero catches on two targets over 53 snaps) makes him a roll of the dice in fantasy lineups this weekend.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16CBRonald DarbyHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEDarby (hamstring) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

    Darby was out of commission in Week 3 but participated in every practice this week. He's expected to be ready by Sunday, but his status will be confirmed prior to kickoff nonetheless.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TCordy GlennANKLEQUESTIONABLEBills left tackle Cordy Glenn has a knee injury and will not return to Sunday's game against the Patriots. Glenn injured his knee early in the fourth quarter and was able to limp off the field. 
    10/02/16QBCardale JonesRIGHT SHOULDERQUESTIONABLEJones (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

    Jones will have to wait at least one more week before he suits up for his first NFL game, as he has been inactive the first three weeks of the season with a shoulder injury. EJ Manuel will again serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16TCyrus KouandjioANKLEOUTBills tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was beaten out for a starting spot last season by Seantrel Henderson. He is poised to turn the tables this year, per the team website.
    10/02/16CPatrick LewisKNEEOUTThe Seahawks worked in a new first-team center on Tuesday and it wasn't the one projected to fill Max Unger's vacant spot.
    10/02/16SJonathan MeeksFOOTQUESTIONABLERookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been deemed probable by the Bills for the Sunday game against San Diego. He has practiced in full all week with a rib injury.
    10/02/16WRGreg SalasGROINOUTSalas (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in New England.

    With Sammy Watkins (foot) also absent, Marquise Goodwin will likely get the start across from Robert Woods, with Walter Powell serving as the No. 3 wideout. The Bills will try to win on the legs of LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16SAaron WilliamsANKLEQUESTIONABLEWilliams (ankle) practiced on a limited basis all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    There seems little chance Williams will miss this week's game against the team's biggest rival in an effort to try and avoid a 1-3 start. Williams had one pass defensed and a fumble recovery -- one in which he scored his first NFL touchdown -- in the Week 3 upset over the Cardinals. However, Corey Graham remains the more consistent play from an IDP perspective.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    08/24/16LBKevin ReddickKneeQUESTIONABLEReddick, who suffered a sprained MCL in practice Friday, was waived/injured by the Bills on Sunday.

    The Bills didn't have much choice here with several other linebackers injured and reinforcements needed. If Reddick clears injury waivers, the Bills can then either place the him on IR or agree to an injury settlement with him.

    (Updated 08/07/2016)
    08/17/16DLMarcell DareusSuspensionSUSPENDWhile Dareus will return from suspension following this weekend's game against the Patriots, he likely won't be able to play a full workload Week 5 against the Rams, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said general manager Doug Whaley, "There is no conditioning or workout that can get you in total football shape. He's been working out with weights and aerobically during his suspension. I assume we'll get him in (the lineup) right away, but he'll rotate otherwise he'll be gassed ... it's going to take him a game or two to get in football shape where he can play a full game."

    Dareus is certainly worth a look in IDP formats where he was cast aside due to his four-game suspension, though you might have to be willing to stash him on the bench for more than just this week. That said, he's one of the league's better defensive tackles when it comes to accruing stats, plus he has quite a bit to prove after the talented lineman let his teammates down yet again.

    (Updated 09/28/2016)
    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeePelvisOUTListenbee, still recovering from double hernia surgery, was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Listenbee will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. The Bills have a major logjam at wide receiver and with some tough roster decisions to make may just stash the speedy Listenbee away for the bulk of the season, then work on his upside once he's fully healthy and more prepared for action.
