New Orleans at Seattle

  • 1444321207
    Rams coach Jeff Fisher has an interesting way of trying to get his defense ready to play against Aaron Rodgers.
    Pressuring Matt Hasselbeck and slowing down the Colts offense could be the key to a home win on Thursday night. Here are the advance stats you need to know for the Week 5 showdown.
    Despite their struggles, the Colts can take comfort in knowing that no matter how bad things are, it's worse for their AFC South counterparts.
    It appears that Matt Hasselbeck, 40 years young, will make his second consecutive start for the Colts.

    10/07/15SJairus ByrdKneeQUESTIONABLESaints safety Jairus Byrd (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

    Byrd will likely hop right in as a starter alongside Kenny Vaccaro, but the Saints may monitor the three-time Pro Bowler's snaps. Although his track record from Buffalo is superb, Byrd has played just 15 games since the start of 2013 and four games since the beginning of 2014. He needs to re-prove that he's a useful IDP outside of very deep leagues.

    10/07/15WRMarques ColstonNot injury relatedQUESTIONABLESaints wide receiver Marques Colston caught four passes on five targets for 19 yards in Sunday night's win against the Cowboys. Colston was not much of a factor in Week 4, with Drew Brees seemingly limited to short throws due to his injured shoulder.

    Further, he once again lost playing time to second-year pro Willie Snead, who led the Saints with six catches for 89 yards, as Colston was on the field for only 41 of the Saints' 73 offensive plays (56 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Brees still looks to Colston when he wants to move the sticks on third down, but with Colston essentially becoming a part-time player in New Orleans, his upside is limited. The Saints will face the Eagles in Week 5.

    10/07/15WRBrandin CooksAnkleQUESTIONABLESaints wide receiver Brandin Cooks (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, the Saints' official site reports.

    Cooks has been consistently targeted this season, garnering eight targets on three occasions and seven in the other outing. He also boasts a 64.5 catch percentage, yet his output has ranged from 25 to 79 yards. He should get on track sooner rather than later, though, as Sunday's opponent, the Eagles, have given up 200.3 receiving yards per game and six touchdowns to wideouts this season.

    10/07/15CBKeenan LewisHipQUESTIONABLESaints cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

    Coming off a minor hip procedure at the beginning of September, Lewis is returning toward the front end of his timetable. He'll likely get the start, but it's not entirely clear whether he'll replace Brandon Browner or Delvin Breaux.

    10/07/15RBFred JacksonAnkleQUESTIONABLESeahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Wednesday that running back Fred Jackson has a high-ankle sprain.

    By all accounts, Jackson was trending toward that diagnosis and its accompanying recovery timetable of at least a few weeks. With the injury confirmed, Marshawn Lynch is poised to take over his rightful place as the Seahawks' starting running back, as long as he continues to progress through his hamstring injury.

    10/07/15RBMarshawn LynchHamstringQUESTIONABLESeahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    After head coach Pete Carroll said that the Seahawks consider Lynch day-to-day, the running back followed the comment up with no activity to kick off preparation for Week 5. With two practices remaining and a 1:00 PM ET kickoff Sunday in Cincinnati, owners should have plenty of knowledge at their disposal to make a prudent roster decision, if in fact Lynch misses a second game in a row.
