    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/02/16TEStephen AndersonHAMSTRINGOUTAnderson (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Anderson did not practice Friday due to a hamstring injury that has hampered him since last Thursday's loss to the Patriots. The ailment will keep him sidelined for Sunday's divisional contest versus the Titans, leaving Ryan Griffin and C.J. Fiedorowicz as Houston's lone tight end options in Week 4.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TDuane BrownKNEEOUTBrown (knee) has officially been listed as out for Week 4.

    The team stated as far back as last week that Brown would not play this Sunday but after he returned to practice in a limited fashion there was some thought he could make his season debut. There's a chance he's able to return in Week 5.

    10/02/16LBBrian CushingKNEEQUESTIONABLECushing (knee) returned to practice Wednesday after suffering a sprained MCL during the Texans' regular season opener, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Cushing's original diagnosis figured to keep him sidelined for up to six weeks, but it appears the issue has since calmed down. Barring any setbacks throughout the week in practice, Cushing could return to game action as early as Sunday against the Titans.

    (Updated 09/28/2016)
    10/02/16SQuintin DempsHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEDemps re-signed with the Texans on Thursday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 reports.

    Demps was a late addition to the Texans' roster just prior to the start of the 2015 season, but he ended up playing a key role in the secondary. He racked up 61 tackles (35 solo), 0.5 sacks, six passes defensed, one interception, one touchdown, and a forced fumble in 14 games. He was also briefly used in the kick return game.

    (Updated 04/07/2016)
    10/02/16RBJonathan GrimesANKLEOUTGrimes (ankle) has been ruled out for a month due to a cracked fibula, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Injuries continue to decimate the Texans' this season, but Grimes is expected to make a full recovery. The back has logged four carries for 12 yards and hauled in five receptions for 28 yards so far this season, but will now be sidelined until late October at the earliest. Alfred Blue and Tyler Ervin are expected to see increased carries in Grimes absence.

    (Updated 09/29/2016)
    10/02/16WRBraxton MillerHAMSTRINGOUTMiller (hamstring) won't play this week, per coach Bill O'Brien.

    On the plus side, O'Brien indicated that Miller is "doing OK," but the Texans will err on the side of caution with the rookie wideout, perhaps eyeing his return in Week 5 when the Texans travel to Minnesota. In the meantime, look for Jaelen Strong to work as the Texans' No. 3 wideout Sunday against the Titans, behind DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller.

    Baltimore Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/02/16WRKamar AikenTHIGHQUESTIONABLEAiken (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Oakland.

    With just five catches in three games, Aiken has fallen victim to a depth chart that's much deeper than last season's. He's still a key contributor on special teams, but Breshad Perriman and Chris Moore have increasingly cut into Aiken's offensive snaps. His absence wouldn't have much impact on Baltimore's gameplan.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16RBKenneth DixonKNEEDOUBTFULThough Dixon (knee) was spotted at practice Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com suggests that Week 5 "is the realistic target" for the rookie running back's return to action.

    For his part, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun notes that Dixon "was mostly working out on his own" Wednesday, but the running back's presence on the field, in any capacity, is nonetheless a good sign with regard to Dixon's chances of factoring into the Ravens' backfield mix sooner rather than later.

    (Updated 09/28/2016)
    10/02/16LBElvis DumervilFOOTQUESTIONABLEDumervil (foot) will play Sunday against the Raiders.

    After returning to practice on Wednesday the linebacker confirmed he will be making his season debut on Sunday. The veteran could see his reps heavily monitored as the team does not want to risk the injury resurfacing. The return of Dumervil, who recorded 48 tackles and six sacks last season, is a huge boost for the Ravens' defense as the team looks to improve to 4-0 on the season.

    (Updated 09/29/2016)
    10/02/16WRDevin HesterTHIGHQUESTIONABLEHester (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Oakland.

    Strictly a return specialist at this stage in his career, Hester still appears to have his speed, but he muffed a punt in last week's win over the Jaguars. If he misses Sunday's game, the Ravens could turn to any of Lardarius Webb, Steve Smith, Chris Moore, Tavon Young or Terrance West in the return game.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16DTTimmy JerniganKNEEQUESTIONABLEJernigan returned to practice on Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Jernigan returns to the practice field after missing the past week with a rib injury. The Ravens take on the Panthers on Thursday in their preseason opener which Jernigan could play in. Look for more updates to come later in the week.

    10/02/16GAlex LewisCONCUSSIONQUESTIONABLE (Updated 12/31/1969)
    10/02/16CBSheldon PriceTHIGHDOUBTFULThe Colts have declared the following players as inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game: Trent Richardson, Griff Whalen, Sheldon Price, Xavier Nixon, Jonotthan Harrison, Bjoern Werner and Zach Kerr.
    10/02/16TRonnie StanleyFOOTDOUBTFUL (Updated 12/31/1969)
    10/02/16GJohn UrschelSHOULDERQUESTIONABLEThe following players have been ruled inactive for the Ravens in Week 5 against the Colts: Chris Canty, Arthur Brown, Eugene Monroe, John Urschel, Phillip Supernaw, Timmy Jernigan and Michael Campanaro.
    09/07/16DBCarrington ByndomUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEByndom (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Ravens on Wednesday, Jayson Braddock of SportsTalk 790 reports.

    It's unclear why Byndom landed on injured reserve in the first place, but he's now eligible to sign elsewhere.

    (Updated 09/07/2016)
    07/29/16TENick BoyleSuspensionSUSPENDBoyle has been suspended for the first 10 games of the 2016 campaign due to a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

    Boyle was utilized sparsely as a rookie in 2015, hauling in 18 balls for 153 yards over the course of 11 games. However, he received his first suspension related to PEDs on Dec. 7 and subsequently missed the final four contests of the season. With Boyle out of the picture for most of next season, the Ravens rely upon Crockett Gillmore (back) and Maxx Williams to man tight end.

    (Updated 02/19/2016)
    07/29/16WRDarren WallerSuspensionSUSPENDWaller (suspension) was forced to exit Saturday's win over the Colts to be tested for a concussion.

    Waller was able to pass the concussion tests and he won't be forced to miss any practice time, though he was unable to return on Saturday. He finished the game without a single target.
