    10/11/15LBNaVorro BowmanNOT INJURY RELATEDPROBABLE49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Packers.

    Bowman has been fairly vanilla in 2015, failing to reach double-digit tackles in a single game this season. On a positive note, he didn't appear to be limited by the minor knee injury suffered last week.

    Bowman isn't playing at the level we were used to prior to his gruesome knee injury in the 2013 NFC Championship, but owners have to give him a bit more leash in case he is simply shaking off the rust.

    10/11/15LBAhmad BrooksNOT INJURY RELATED, SHOULDERDOUBTFUL49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks will not be placed on the commissioner's exempt list and will open the season on the active roster, the team announced. Brooks was recently indicted on one count of sexual battery.
    10/11/15TEVernon DavisKNEEOUTTight end Vernon Davis (knee) has been ruled out by the 49ers for the Sunday game against the Giants.

    Garrett Celek figures to get another start, with Vance McDonald serving as the No. 2 tight end. The San Francisco offense has been a dead zone for Fantasy production, and there's little reason to expect anything from the team's tight ends.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15SL.J. McCrayKNEEPROBABLEAlong with linebacker Patrick Willis (toe), the 49ers listed Josh Johnson, Quinton Patton, Leon McFadden , Dan Skuta, L.J. McCray, and Dillon Farrell as inactive for Week 10 at New Orleans.
    10/11/15TEVance McDonaldCHESTPROBABLEVernon Davis (knee) is inactive for the 49ers on Sunday against Green Bay. He had been designated as doubtful.

    Vance McDonald, Garrett Celek and Blake Bell are in line to handle the duties at that position, though none represent a high-percentage Fantasy play in Week 4.

    10/11/15WRQuinton PattonCONCUSSIONQUESTIONABLEWide receiver Quinton Patton (concussion) is listed as questionable by the 49ers for the Sunday game against the Giants.

    If Patton is unable to play, speedy Bruce Ellington will serve as the No. 3 wideout in an offense that was completely incompetent the last two weeks. Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith are both having very quiet seasons, but neither is in any danger of losing snaps.

    10/11/15TJoe StaleyKNEEQUESTIONABLE
    09/07/15WRDeAndre SmelterUndisclosedNFIThe 49ers waived 10 players on Monday. They were K Corey Acosta, LB Steve Beauharnais, CB Mylan Hicks, T Sean Hooey, WR Mario Hull, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Nigel King, LB Shawn Lemon, FB Trey Millard and DL Lawrence Okoye.
    08/18/15WRJerome SimpsonSuspensionSUSPENDJerome Simpson, who is competing for the role as the 49ers' No. 3 wide receiver, has been suspended for the first six games of the season. The suspension is due to a July 2014 arrest and previous off-field incidents, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

    10/11/15DEEzekiel AnsahSHOULDERPROBABLELions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) has been designated as probable for the Week 5 game against Arizona.

    A regular on the injury report this season, Ansah has yet to miss a game and already has four sacks. He should be fine for Sunday, but his matchup with Cardinals left tackle Jared Veldheer is a tough one.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15RBJoique BellANKLEOUTAn ankle injury has Lions running back Joique Bell sidelined for the Sunday game against the Cardinals.

    According to MLive.com, Bell had a procedure on his ankle in March, in addition to the reported surgeries on his Achilles and knee. The third surgery explains his slow recovery leading up to the season, and he's reportedly been bothered by the ankle all along.

    Bell's early-season struggles now come with more context, but he seems to be in danger of missing games beyond Week 5. With the Detroit offensive line struggling and the backfield still crowded, Bell offers very little upside.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15TEEric EbronKNEEOUTLions tight end Eric Ebron (knee) has been deemed a no-go for the Week 5 battle against Arizona.

    With Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) probable, the impact of Ebron's absence is at least somewhat mitigated. Though it has been reported that he could miss up to three games, Ebron ran on the side with trainers Friday, suggesting he has some shot to return for the following game against the Bears.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15SJames IhedigboQUADRICEPSQUESTIONABLELions strong safety James Ihedigbo has reported to OTAs and will likely attend minicamp despite his stated desire for a new contract, the Detroit News is reporting.
    10/11/15LBDeAndre LevyHIPPROBABLELions linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) will make his season debut Sunday against the Cardinals, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Levy is ready to go after missing the first four games with the hip injury. He should give the unit a boost, and was one of the top Individual Defensive Player linebackers the last two seasons, so it's worth checking to see if he is available if you play in a Fantasy league that uses them.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15LBTravis LewisANKLEPROBABLEThe Lions placed linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) on injured reserve Saturday. The team replaced Lewis on the active roster with tight end Jordan Thompson, who was signed from the practice squad.

    10/11/15CBRashean MathisCALFPROBABLELions cornerback Rashean Mathis is planning to retire after the two-year contract he signed in March expires, per the Detroit Free Press.
    10/11/15WRLance MooreANKLEPROBABLELions veteran wide receiver Lance Moore will not play Thursday night against Washington in the team's second preseason game, ESPN has reported. He will return home after becoming a father.
    10/11/15DTHaloti NgataCALFOUTLions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was limited in practice Friday with a shoulder problem and is considered questionable for the Sunday game against Minnesota.
    10/11/15TEBrandon PettigrewHAMSTRINGPROBABLELions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) is listed as probable for the Sunday game against the Cardinals.

    Pettigrew would normally be restricted to a blocking role, but with Eric Ebron (knee) out for at least one week, Pettigrew could see some extra targets in his return from a three-game absence. He still offers minimal upside in the passing game.
