    08/15/16WRMalcolm MitchellElbowPROBABLEWhen 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.

    08/09/16DLRob NinkovichArmQUESTIONABLENinkovich, 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.

    07/11/16TEMichael 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.

    04/27/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDBrady (suspension), who returned to the team Tuesday following an excused absence, downplayed the thumb injury he sustained in advance of last Thursday's preseason game against the Bears, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    Brady accidentally sliced his right thumb on a pair of scissors before the contest, and when asked about the injury Tuesday, the QB noted that his thumb feels "good" now, adding that "it took a few days. I wanted to go (Thursday) and Coach [Bill Belichick] said it's probably best if we just take it easy." Moreover, Brady put forth the notion that he would have played last Thursday if it had been a regular-season game. While his playing status for this Friday's preseason tilt at Carolina has not yet been determined, Brady's four-game suspension to start the coming season is clearly more relevant from a fantasy perspective than his thumb issue, which turned out to be minor.

    08/14/16DLMario EdwardsHipQUESTIONABLEEdwards (hip) will not need surgery on his sprained hip, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

    Edwards injured his hip while tackling Cardinals' running back David Johnson during Thursday's preseason contest. Edwards was given a four-to-six week timetable, but it was questionable if he needed surgery or not. Now that it's clear he just needs time and not surgery, he'll likely be able to return sooner than he otherwise would've, though his status for the regular season opener is still in question.

    08/14/16TEGabe HolmesAnkleDOUBTFULThe Raiders placed Holmes (ankle) on the IR Tuesday, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.

    Holmes suffered a severe high ankle sprain in Monday's practice, which has resulted in his placement on the IR. Holmes projected to be the fourth tight end on the team's depth chart this season.

    08/14/16RBJalen RichardKneeQUESTIONABLERichard (knee) is expected to play and see time with the starting offense in the Raiders' third preseason game Saturday against the Titans, Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com reports.

    Richard flashed during the onset of training camp, but had been slowed by a knee injury until returning to practice earlier this week. However, none of Taiwan Jones, DeAndre Washington nor George Atkinson have laid claim to the No. 2 or No. 3 jobs yet.

    07/11/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDSmith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.

    Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.

    (Updated 07/29/2016)
    04/27/16RBMarcel ReeceSuspensionSUSPENDReece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.
