    10/20/16LBJadeveon ClowneyWristQUESTIONABLEClowney had a season-high eight tackles (seven solo), including four for losses on running plays, in Houston's 31-13 loss to Minnesota. He also flushed quarterback Sam Bradford out of the pocket twice.

    This may have been Clowney's best overall game since he entered the NFL in 2014. And he needs to be at his best now that J.J. Watt (back) it out of action.

    10/20/16DBKevin JohnsonFootOUTJohnson (foot) will be placed on IR and is out for the remainder of the season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Johnson broke his foot in Sunday's game but missed just one play, playing much of the second half with the injury. It isn't yet clear if he'll need surgery or let the injury heal on its own but either way the team will likely place him on IR in the near future. Robert Nelson and A.J. Bouye figure to see extra time with Johnson out.

    (Updated 10/20/2016)
    10/20/16LBJohn SimonShoulderQUESTIONABLESimon recorded six tackles, three quarterback hits and 1.5 sacks in Houston's win over Kansas City in Week 2. He's recorded sacks in each of the first two games.

    Simon, who had 5.0 sacks in 2015, made some big plays during preseason, forcing the coaching staff to find a spot for him in the starting lineup. As such, defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel moved Jadeveon Clowney to defensive end in order to get Simon on the field.

    (Updated 09/19/2016)
    10/17/16DBQuintin DempsCalfQUESTIONABLEDemps (calf) sat out practice Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Demps missed all of last week's practices due to his calf injury before being ruled out for Week 6. If he's unable to practice the rest of the week it seems unlikely that he'd be able to play in Week 7. Corey Moore got the start in Week 6 and will likely continue to see extra time while Demps is out.

    (Updated 10/20/2016)
    10/17/16WRWill FullerHamstringQUESTIONABLEFuller (hamstring) will play Monday night against the Broncos, ESPN's Sarah Barshop reports.

    Fuller was active last weekend, but ended up not playing against the Colts due to his hamstring. Since then, he's apparently made enough strides in practice for coach Bill O'Brien to confirm his status in advance of Monday's kickoff. While that clarity helps fantasy owners in timing their decision-making, Fuller's matchup with Denver's vaunted secondary should've tempered expectations of him even if he wasn't a bit banged-up.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/17/16RBJonathan GrimesAnkleOUTGrimes (ankle) is inactive for the Texans' Week 4 tilt versus the Titans, the team's official site reports.

    The reserve running back will reportedly miss at least a month with his injury, providing Alfred Blue and Tyler Ervin unfettered access to the backup tailback touches behind Lamar Miller.

    (Updated 10/02/2016)
    10/17/16LBBrian PetersQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEPeters (quadriceps) is listed as out for Sunday's game against Indianapolis.

    Peters hadn't practiced all week after suffering his injury against the Vikings in Week 5. As a depth linebacker his absence shouldn't impact Houston's defense greatly.

    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/23/16DEEzekiel AnsahANKLEQUESTIONABLEAnsah (ankle) is questionable to play against the Redskins on Sunday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Ansah returned from a three-game absence to play against the Rams last week. Considering there haven't been any reported setbacks, the former first-rounder doesn't appear in danger of sitting out.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/23/16TEEric EbronANKLE, KNEEOUTEbron (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Although he was spotted running on a side field Wednesday, the third-year tight end still hasn't practiced since injuring his knee in Week 4. The Detroit offense hasn't relied on his replacements at tight end, instead looking to WRs Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate to fill the void in the short passing game. Tight ends accounted for just one of the Lions' 51 targets the past two weeks, with Clay Harbor drawing the sole look. Considering pass-catching back Theo Riddick (ankle) will also be absent, Boldin and Tate could be busy again.

    10/23/16LBDeAndre LevyKNEE, QUADRICEPSOUTLevy (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Having not played since the season opener, Levy still hasn't participated in practice either and remains without an estimate for return.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/23/16DTHaloti NgataSHOULDEROUTNgata (shoulder) will not play Sunday against the Redskins, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Ngata was given a 2-3 week timetable for return prior to missing last week's game. Thus, there's evidently optimism he could return in Week 8.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/23/16RBTheo RiddickANKLEOUTRiddick (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Absent from practice for a second straight week, Riddick never seemed to have much shot at making his return. Dwayne Washington (ankle) is listed as questionable after logging limited practices all week, suggesting he at least has some chance to join a Detroit backfield that was led by Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett in last week's win over the Titans.

    10/23/16GLarry WarfordGROINQUESTIONABLELions offensive lineman Larry Warford is still bothered by a high ankle sprain, but he hopes to begin practicing this week, reports MLive.com.
    10/23/16RBDwayne WashingtonANKLEQUESTIONABLEWashington (ankle) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Redskins, and he could get a lot of the backfield work. Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Washington is listed as questionable after logging three straight limited practices, but reports hinted he was almost able to play last week, which suggests he should be ready by Sunday. Prior to spraining his ankle, the seventh-round rookie was part of a timeshare with Theo Riddick (ankle), who has already been ruled out for Sunday. Assuming he plays and isn't too limited by the ankle, Washington could serve as the lead back ahead of Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett. The Lions still figure to go with a timeshare, making any of the three a speculative Week 7 option.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    10/23/16LBTahir WhiteheadABDOMENQUESTIONABLEWhitehead (abdomen) is questionable to play against the Redskins on Sunday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Whitehead, easily the Lions' leading tackler, appears to have sustained an injury in practice this week. His potential absence would spell trouble for an already-battered defensive unit.

    (Updated 10/21/2016)
    09/11/16LBJosh BynesKneeOUTBynes (knee) reached an injury settlement, and was cut by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Bynes had been placed on the injured-reserve with a knee injury. The severity of his knee injury is still unknown. He had originally projected to provide linebacker depth for the Lions this season.
