    08/28/16RBBranden OliverAchillesQUESTIONABLEOliver (Achilles) is expected to miss an extended period of time, the Chargers' official site reports.

    Previously slated to work as San Diego's No. 3 running back, Oliver may have suffered a torn Achilles during Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings. Despite his spot on the depth chart, he actually had a important role in the San Diego offense, capable of replacing both early-down runner Melvin Gordon and passing-down back Danny Woodhead. The Chargers will now look to Dreamius Smith and/or Kenneth Farrow at the bottom of the depth chart. Smith had 13 carries for 31 yards and three catches for 30 yards (four targets) in Sunday's game, whereas Farrow didn't record a touch.

    08/26/16DLDamion SquareSuspensionSUSPENDSquare has been suspended four games by the NFL, the team's official site reports.

    Square's suspension stems from a violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Early reports indicate that Square did not test positive for a specific substance, but the 27-year-old missed a scheduled test. Both Ryan Carrethers and Tenny Palepoi are likely to fill in during his absence.

    08/05/16WRJavontee HerndonUndisclosedPROBABLEHerndon (undisclosed) remained sidelined Tuesday, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The specifics of Herndon's injury have yet to be released, but the 25-year-old wideout has been sidelined for roughly two weeks now and remains without a concrete timetable for a return. With Stevie Johnson (knee) lost for the season, Herndon has the chance to potentially move up on the depth chart, but the longer he sits out, the harder it will be to gain traction in the quest for addition targets.

    04/08/16DLCorey LiugetFootPROBABLELiuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.

    04/08/16DBJason VerrettHamstringPROBABLEVerrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.

    New England Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/23/16DLJabaal SheardKneeQUESTIONABLESheard (knee) was present for Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

    While not yet a full participant, the sight on the field of Sheard (who sprained his MCL on Aug. 11) in any capacity, is nonetheless an encouraging development for the Patriots' pass rush in advance of Week 1.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/16/16TEClay HarborUndisclosedPROBABLEHarbor was "shaken up" during Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

    With Rob Gronkowski missing practice Tuesday and Bryce Williams still sidelined, Harbor's unspecified injury further taxes the Patriots' short-term depth at tight end. The team's current healthy options at the position are Martellus Bennett, AJ Derby, Bear Pascoe and Steven Scheu.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/16/16TEBryce WilliamsUndisclosedPROBABLEWilliams has missed several days of practice with an undisclosed injury.

    Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.

    08/15/16WRMalcolm MitchellElbowQUESTIONABLEWhen asked Sunday for a timetable for his return to full action, Mitchell -- who dislocated his left elbow on Aug. 11 -- said he didn't "have an answer for that," CSN New England reports.

    On the plus side, Mitchell -- who has returned to the practice field in a limited capacity -- while sporting a large brace around his elbow, noted Sunday that he's "feeling good...feeling a lot better than the day it happened." Once he's able to play without restrictions, Mitchell could emerge as a candidate to claim the Patriots' "X" receiver role, but for now his early-season fantasy upside is somewhat stalled by his elbow issue. Beyond that, it may take some in-season injuries for Mitchell to merit lineup consideration, given that there are plenty of other options in the Patriots' passing attack, namely fellow wideouts Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan (and Danny Amendola to a lesser degree), as well as the team's talented tight end combo of Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/09/16DLRob NinkovichTricepsDOUBTFULNinkovich, who tore his triceps on Aug. 9, was present at the start of Sunday's practice before moving on to the Patriots' lower field to do conditioning work, ESPN.com reports.

    Initial Boston Herald reports suggested that Ninkovich's return would be a matter of "weeks, not months." While it's unclear when the defensive end might be able to practice fully, his presence on the field Sunday, in any capacity, is a positive sign nonetheless.

    07/29/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDBrady (suspension) completed three of nine passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Jimmy Garoppolo started and played the first three drives, before giving way to Brady for the next four series. Brady made a few beautiful throws, including a 33-yard touchdown to Chris Hogan, but he also got quite lucky on an easy dropped interception. Brady is unlikely to play in the Patriots' final exhibition, which means his next game action will come Week 5 in Cleveland, after he serves a four-game suspension.

    06/09/16TEMichael WilliamsKneeOUTWilliams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.

    As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.

    (Updated 06/09/2016)
    02/06/16DBMalcolm ButlerKneePROBABLEButler missed the Pro Bowl due to a sprained knee, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. "There was a play on third down [in the AFC championship game] when I made a tackle or something like that and bent my knee back," Butler said Friday in San Francisco. "It swelled up pretty bad. I didn't feel it during the game because of all the adrenaline pumping. When we got back, it swelled up pretty bad, and the team just decided it was a good thing to sit me out."

    Butler became instantly famous with his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in last year's Super Bowl, and the loss of Darrelle Revis in free agency elevated him to the Patriots' No. 1 cornerback. The pseudo promotion worked wonders, as Butler notched 67 tackles (56 solo), 15 passes defended, and two interceptions while regularly drawing the opponent's top wide receiver over the course of his second campaign. While his recovery effort won't include surgery, rest and regular icing sessions have been his regimen to date.
