Injuries to Tony Romo and Kenneth Dixon have changed the Fantasy landscape, while the returns of Jordy Nelson, Arian Foster, Jimmy Graham and more have Fantasy owners dealing with big questions. Chris Towers runs down the latest.
When 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.
Ninkovich, 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.
Williams 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.
Brady (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.
Huff has been suspended one game for a violation of the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
Huff has played 63 and 81 percent of the special teams snaps for the Titans in his first two professional campaigns, respectively. Along the way, the safety has accrued 33 tackles (22 solo), four passes defended, one interception for a touchdown, and one sack in 30 career games. After missing the Titans' season opener on Sept. 11 against the Vikings, Huff will be eligible to play in Week 2 at Detroit.
Wright (hamstring strain) is expected to miss Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders, the Tennessean reports.
Wright, who has been running on a side field of late during practices, is thus a candidate to see some action in the Titans' preseason finale against the Dolphins next week. On the plus side, the Tennessean report notes that Wright, who posted career-lows in catches (36) and yards (408) in 10 games last season, has "drawn praise from the coaching staff for the work he's done while injured." Once his health is re-established, look for Wright to remain a presence in the slot for Titans, with Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe appearing on track to start on the outside for the team.
Wallace (ankle) returned to practice Friday, Jim Wyatt of Titans Online reports.
Wallace suffered a high ankle sprain during practice in early August, forcing the rookie to the sideline for a matter of weeks. The Titans take on the Panthers in their second preseason contest Saturday, but Wallace may not be ready to return to game action at this point. His next opportunity to play would be the following Saturday in Oakland.
Turzilli is dealing with both a groin and thumb injury, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
It's unclear exactly when he suffered the injuries, but it's likely going to keep him limited for the time being. The Titans face off with the Panthers on Saturday in the team's second preseason outing, so it remains questionable whether or not Turzilli will be available. Turzilli is suspended for the first four games of the season for his use of performance-enhancing substances, making the injury just another hit to his chances of making the final roster.
