    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/08/15CBCortez AllenKneeQUESTIONABLESteelers cornerback Cortez Allen was a full participant for practice Friday.

    Allen is on track to make his first appearance since Week 1 after going down with a knee injury. The Steelers will likely need all the help they can get in the secondary with Phillip Rivers and the rest of the Chargers set to face off Monday night.

    10/08/15DTDaniel McCullersKneePROBABLEThe Steelers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 9 matchup with the Ravens: cornerbacks Ike Taylor (forearm) and B.W. Webb, safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring), quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Dan McCullers, guard Christopher Hubbard and wide receiver Justin Brown.
    10/08/15QBBen RoethlisbergerKneeQUESTIONABLESteelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) is more likely to miss six weeks than four, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

    Roethlisberger has a timetable of 4-6 weeks, which is typical for a sprained MCL. The concern is that he's also dealing with a nasty bone bruise that might actually take longer to heal than the sprain. However, recovery from the bone bruise is largely about pain management, and Roethlisberger's on-field toughness is beyond reproach.

    10/08/15LBRyan ShazierShoulderPROBABLESteelers linebacker Ryan Shazier (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Friday.

    Shazier missed the previous two games with a shoulder injury, prompting some frustration from the 23 year old, according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. While his status for Monday will likely be decided by head coach Mike Tomlin, early indications seem to suggest Shazier should be able to suit up against the Chargers.

    10/08/15TEMatt SpaethHandPROBABLESpaeth (hand) practiced fully Thursday.

    Spaeth is off the fantasy radar, but his likely return to action this week will bolster the team's depth at tight end behind starter Heath Miller.

    10/08/15SRoss VentroneHamstringQUESTIONABLESteelers cornerback Cortez Allen (thumb) and safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring) are active for Monday's game at Tennessee after being listed as probable.
    10/08/15WRMarkus WheatonAnklePROBABLEWheaton (ankle) practiced fully Thursday.

    Wheaton should be fine for Monday night's game against the Chargers, though the impending return of Martavis Bryant caps Wheaton's Week 5 fantasy upside in the Steelers' Mike Vick-helmed passing offense.

    10/11/15DERobert Ayers Jr.HAMSTRINGOUTGiants defensive end Robert Ayers is out for Sunday's game in Buffalo.

    With Ayers out for a second straight week, George Selvie will likely slide over to left defensive end again, allowing Kerry Wynn to join the starting lineup as the right defensive end. Even against a run-heavy Bills team, the Giants defense will sorely miss its most effective pass-rusher.

    10/11/15LBJonathan CasillasCALFQUESTIONABLEThe Giants announced they've signed running back Shane Vereen late Wednesday night. 
    10/11/15WRVictor CruzCALFOUTGiants wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf) won't play Sunday against the 49ers, but he is aiming to return Week 6 against the Eagles, the New York Daily News reports.

    Cruz is slated for an examination with team doctors Monday, which is 10 days removed from receiving a PRP injection in his left calf. After he meets with the doctors, he'll adjust his timetable for a return to running, according to The Record.

    With a Monday night contest in Week 6, Cruz will have an extra day to prove the health of the calf. However, next Thursday's practice will ultimately set the groundwork for the potential to make his season debut.

    (Updated 10/08/2015)
    10/11/15TEJerome CunninghamKNEEPROBABLEGiants tight end Jerome Cunningham (knee) is inactive for the Week 4 game against Buffalo.

    Cunningham and Daniel Fells did not travel with the team. As a result, the Giants' tight end depth will suffer, although Larry Donnell could end up seeing a few more targets.

    (Updated 10/04/2015)
    10/11/15CBJayron HosleyCONCUSSIONQUESTIONABLEThe Giants declared linebacker Devon Kennard (toe), wideout Corey Washington, cornerback Jayron Hosley, offensive linemen Adam Gettis and Eric Herman, defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton and tight end Jerome Cunningham inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
    10/11/15LBDevon KennardHAMSTRINGOUTGiants linebacker Devon Kennard (hamstring) has been ruled out for the game Sunday against the 49ers.

    Kennard is off to an impressive start, with 25 tackles (15 solo) and an interception in four games. The Giants still don't have an every-down linebacker, but Kennard leads the group in snaps. In his absence, Mark Herzlich could get the start, though a bunch of players may benefit from added snaps.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15CBTrumaine McBrideGROINQUESTIONABLEThe Giants placed cornerback Trumaine McBride (thumb) on injured reserve Tuesday. McBride underwent surgery Monday after injuring his thumb in Week 6.
    10/11/15DEGeorge SelvieCALFOUTGeorge Selvie will be reunited with former University of South Florida teammate Jason Pierre-Paul in New York. The defensive lineman signed a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the Giants that includes a $200,000 signing bonus, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
    10/08/15SLandon CollinsCalfQUESTIONABLEGiants safety Landon Collins will miss at least a week with an MCL sprain, coach Tom Coughlin announced on Saturday.
