    10/02/16SColt AndersonFOOTQUESTIONABLEAnderson (foot) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

    Anderson was limited in practice throughout the week. He serves as depth in the Bills' secondary and his absence shouldn't have a significant impact on the outcome of the game if he's ultimately ruled out.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TECharles ClayKNEEQUESTIONABLEClay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    With wideouts Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas both out this week, Clay could be a key cog in the Bills' Week 4 passing attack, assuming he suits up Sunday, which we expect he will. That said, the tight end's quiet effort this past week against the Cardinals (zero catches on two targets over 53 snaps) makes him a roll of the dice in fantasy lineups this weekend.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16CBRonald DarbyHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEDarby (hamstring) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

    Darby was out of commission in Week 3 but participated in every practice this week. He's expected to be ready by Sunday, but his status will be confirmed prior to kickoff nonetheless.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TCordy GlennANKLEQUESTIONABLEBills left tackle Cordy Glenn has a knee injury and will not return to Sunday's game against the Patriots. Glenn injured his knee early in the fourth quarter and was able to limp off the field. 
    10/02/16QBCardale JonesRIGHT SHOULDERQUESTIONABLEJones (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

    Jones will have to wait at least one more week before he suits up for his first NFL game, as he has been inactive the first three weeks of the season with a shoulder injury. EJ Manuel will again serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16TCyrus KouandjioANKLEOUTBills tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was beaten out for a starting spot last season by Seantrel Henderson. He is poised to turn the tables this year, per the team website.
    10/02/16CPatrick LewisKNEEOUTThe Seahawks worked in a new first-team center on Tuesday and it wasn't the one projected to fill Max Unger's vacant spot.
    10/02/16SJonathan MeeksFOOTQUESTIONABLERookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been deemed probable by the Bills for the Sunday game against San Diego. He has practiced in full all week with a rib injury.
    10/02/16WRGreg SalasGROINOUTSalas (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in New England.

    With Sammy Watkins (foot) also absent, Marquise Goodwin will likely get the start across from Robert Woods, with Walter Powell serving as the No. 3 wideout. The Bills will try to win on the legs of LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16SAaron WilliamsANKLEQUESTIONABLEWilliams (ankle) practiced on a limited basis all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    There seems little chance Williams will miss this week's game against the team's biggest rival in an effort to try and avoid a 1-3 start. Williams had one pass defensed and a fumble recovery -- one in which he scored his first NFL touchdown -- in the Week 3 upset over the Cardinals. However, Corey Graham remains the more consistent play from an IDP perspective.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    08/24/16LBKevin ReddickKneeQUESTIONABLEReddick, who suffered a sprained MCL in practice Friday, was waived/injured by the Bills on Sunday.

    The Bills didn't have much choice here with several other linebackers injured and reinforcements needed. If Reddick clears injury waivers, the Bills can then either place the him on IR or agree to an injury settlement with him.

    (Updated 08/07/2016)
    08/17/16DLMarcell DareusSuspensionSUSPENDWhile Dareus will return from suspension following this weekend's game against the Patriots, he likely won't be able to play a full workload Week 5 against the Rams, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said general manager Doug Whaley, "There is no conditioning or workout that can get you in total football shape. He's been working out with weights and aerobically during his suspension. I assume we'll get him in (the lineup) right away, but he'll rotate otherwise he'll be gassed ... it's going to take him a game or two to get in football shape where he can play a full game."

    Dareus is certainly worth a look in IDP formats where he was cast aside due to his four-game suspension, though you might have to be willing to stash him on the bench for more than just this week. That said, he's one of the league's better defensive tackles when it comes to accruing stats, plus he has quite a bit to prove after the talented lineman let his teammates down yet again.

    (Updated 09/28/2016)
    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeePelvisOUTListenbee, still recovering from double hernia surgery, was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Listenbee will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. The Bills have a major logjam at wide receiver and with some tough roster decisions to make may just stash the speedy Listenbee away for the bulk of the season, then work on his upside once he's fully healthy and more prepared for action.

    Indianapolis Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/02/16CBDarius ButlerHAMSTRINGOUTButler is "week-to-week" with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

    Pagano typically uses the "week to week" term for player expected to miss a week or more, so it's unlikely that Butler will play in Indy's next game.

    (Updated 09/19/2016)
    10/02/16WRPhillip DorsettANKLEQUESTIONABLEDorsett caught three of four targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 26-22 win over the Chargers.

    Without Donte Moncrief (shoulder) in the lineup, Dorsett failed to take advantage of his opportunity, doing very little outside of an 18-yard reception. Meanwhile, T.Y. Hilton had a big game, catching eight passes for 173 yards and a touchdown. Moncrief is expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks, so Dorsett still has plenty of time to be productive. He'll face the Jaguars in Jacksonville next week.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16TDenzelle GoodBACKQUESTIONABLE (Updated 12/31/1969)
    10/02/16CJonotthan HarrisonILLNESSOUTThe Colts are trying offensive linemen at different positions in the team's offseason workouts. 
    10/02/16WRDonte MoncriefSHOULDEROUTA fractured scapula will force Moncrief out of action four-to-six weeks.

    Coach Chuck Pagano noted Wednesday that Moncrief will treat the injury with rest, rather than surgery. With the wideout thus slated to miss time, Phillip Dorsett's fantasy value gets a bump, as he and T.Y. Hilton are now in line to head a wideout corps that also includes Chester Rogers, Quan Bray and Devin Street as depth options.

    (Updated 09/21/2016)
    10/02/16TJoe ReitzBACKQUESTIONABLEReitz has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game with a back injury, Tom James of the Tribune-Star reports.

    Given the nature of back injuries, Reitz will likely require close medical attention before he is cleared to return to action.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    09/09/16DLRon ThompsonUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEThompson (undisclosed) was released from the Colts' injured reserve after reaching an injury settlement with the team, Jayson Braddock of SportsTalk 790 reports.

    The specifics of his injury remain veiled. Nonetheless, Thompson is now free to sign with another organization.

    (Updated 09/09/2016)
    09/08/16DBTevin MitchelHamstringQUESTIONABLEMitchel (hamstring) has been released by the Colts after reaching an injury settlement with the team, George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin reports.

    Mitchel missed all of last season due to injury, and entered this season on the IR. He injured his hamstring in the team's final preseason game. The 24-year-old has yet to play in a regular season game.

    (Updated 09/08/2016)
    09/07/16DBDezmen SouthwardUndisclosedQUESTIONABLESouthward (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Colts on Wednesday, Jayson Braddock of SportsTalk 790 reports.

    Southward had knee surgery in late May and landed on the team's injured reserve list last week. He's now eligible to sign a deal with another team.

    (Updated 09/07/2016)
    08/21/16TEMichael MillerUndisclosedOUTMiller was placed on the active/no-football list with an undisclosed injury on Tuesday.

    The severity of the injury is still unknown, but Miller, a rookie undrafted free-agent, will now miss the beginning of his first training camp. Fellow tight end Darion Griswold was placed on the PUP list, leaving the Colts with five healthy tight ends to open up training camp.

    (Updated 07/26/2016)
    07/29/16DLArthur JonesSuspensionSUSPENDJones will be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL policy on PEDs, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

    Jones missed the entire 2015 season due to torn ligaments in his ankle and did not participate in spring practices. He may have been sidelined to start the season even without the suspension, but this still hurts Indy's depth on the defensive line.
