    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/02/16DEEzekiel AnsahANKLEOUTAnsah (ankle) has been ruled out for the Lions' Week 4 game against the Bears, MLive.com reports.

    Ansah has been sidelined since going down in Week 2 and it is uncertain when he'll be able to return.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16CBAdairius BarnesANKLEQUESTIONABLEBarnes (ankle) has been ruled out for the Lions' matchup against the Packers on Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Barnes was previously considered questionable. His absence limits Detroit to four healthy cornerbacks available to deploy against Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    10/02/16TEEric EbronANKLEQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago.

    Ebron followed Wednesday's absence with a limited showing Thursday and a full practice Friday. He followed the same pattern last week, ultimately catching five passes for 69 yards on eight targets while playing 58 of his team's 68 offensive snaps. Ebron should be fine for Sunday's favorable matchup against an injury-marred Chicago defense.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16DEWallace GilberryABDOMENQUESTIONABLEThe Lions have signed Gilberry, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gilberry, who was limited to 23 tackles and two sacks in 16 games for the Bengals last season, bolsters the Lions' defensive end depth, though his path to IDP relevance hinges on him securing his share of snaps at the position opposite Ziggy Ansah.

    (Updated 04/05/2016)
    10/02/16WRMarvin Jones Jr.HAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEJones (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago.

    A mid-week addition to the injury report, Jones was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. His availability doesn't appear to be in much question, as he didn't show any signs of injury at Friday's practice, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The NFL's leader in receiving yards, Jones will do battle with an injury-marred Chicago secondary that would have been shaky even at full strength.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16LBDeAndre LevyQUADRICEPSOUTLevy (quadriceps) will not play in the Lions' Week 4 game against the Bears, MLive.com reports.

    Levy remains sidelined with an injury to his quadriceps. It's unclear when he'll be able to play again.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TRiley ReiffANKLEQUESTIONABLEThe Lions have picked up the fifth-year option of offensive tackle Riley Reiff, general manager Martin Mayhew has announced.
    10/02/16DEDevin TaylorANKLEQUESTIONABLETaylor (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Packers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Taylor only practiced once during the week, but the Lions may require him to play a full snap count Sunday with Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) expected to miss at least a few games. Through his first two games, Taylor has been able to make an impact at the defensive end spot opposite Ansah, logging eight tackles and 1.5 sacks.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16LBAntwione WilliamsHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEWilliams (hamstring) will not play on Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    With starter DeAndre Levy (quadriceps) also ruled out, the Lions will have just two healthy outside linebackers to deploy against the Packers.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    10/02/16STavon WilsonNECKQUESTIONABLEWilson and Rafael Bush will compete for the Lion's starting strong safety position this offseason, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Back in 2012, then-rookie Wilson played in all 16 games for the Patriots, logging four starts and an equal number of interceptions. In three seasons since, he failed to start a single contest, and picked off just one pass. Now in Detroit, the Illinois product will have the opportunity to reposition himself as an NFL starter this offseason, according to Lions GM Bob Quinn. Glover Quin (ankle) is currently cemented in as their starting free safety, but Wilson will compete with Rafael Bush to patrol the secondary alongside him. However, Bush is the presumptive favorite to win this battle, and the Lions could still further address the safety position in the draft or through the free-agent market.

    (Updated 04/14/2016)
    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.

    New England Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/02/16QBJacoby BrissettRIGHT THUMBQUESTIONABLEBoth Brissett (right thumb) and Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder) are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, a 1:00 ET kickoff, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    Per the Providence Journal, both signal-callers threw some this week, but the Patriots have not indicated which of the two is in line to draw the teams' start at QB in Week 4. At this point, we may not have clarity on that front until Sunday, which makes Brissett a risky fantasy roll for now. Once the Patriots get past this week's action, the team will welcome top QB Tom Brady back to the fold in advance of Week 5's contest against the Browns.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TMarcus CannonCALFQUESTIONABLEPatriots offensive lineman Marcus Cannon has signed a two-year extension, according to ESPN.
    10/02/16GJonathan CooperFOOTQUESTIONABLECooper (foot) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's matchup with Houston.

    Cooper has been dealing with his foot injury for a while now and has yet to play this season. Look for Shaq Mason to get the start once again with Cooper out.

    (Updated 09/22/2016)
    10/02/16LBJonathan FreenySHOULDERQUESTIONABLEFreeny (shoulder) is active for the Patriots' Week 3 game against the Texans.

    Freeny was limited in practice all week and was questionable to play on Thursday. It's unclear if he'll be at all limited in the game, in which case Shea McClellin would likely see some extra snaps.

    (Updated 09/22/2016)
    10/02/16QBJimmy GaroppoloRIGHT SHOULDERQUESTIONABLEBoth Garoppolo (right shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (right thumb) are listed as questionable for Sunday's 1:00 ET game against the Bills, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    As are six other Pats, with no players listed as doubtful or out by the team heading into Week 4 action. At this stage, the Patriots have not indicated whether Garoppolo or Brissett will start this weekend and it wouldn't surprise us if clarity on that front didn't arrive until Sunday. Either way, top QB Tom Brady is slated to return to action in Week 5, so Garoppolo's window of fantasy opportunity is closing soon.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TERob GronkowskiHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEGronkowski (hamstring) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.

    As ESPN.com's Mike Reiss relays, Gronkowski reported "no setbacks" in his return to action this past Thursday, thus it's reasonable to expect the tight end's workload to increase Sunday against the Bills, after he logged just 14 snaps on offense in Week 3.

    (Updated 09/28/2016)
    10/02/16LBDont'a HightowerKNEEQUESTIONABLEHightower (knee) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Texans.

    Hightower was limited in practice all week, leaving him as a toss up to play Week 3. This will be his second missed game since spraining his MCL in the team's Week 1 game. The added time off prior to Week 4 may be enough for him to get back on the field. Look for Elandon Roberts to see some extra time once again in Hightower's absence.

    (Updated 09/22/2016)
    10/02/16CBEric RoweANKLEQUESTIONABLERowe has been listed as out for the Patriot's Week 2 game against the Dolphins due to an ankle injury.

    It's unclear how Rowe suffered the injury but seeing as it was enough to keep him out of practice on Friday it's unsurprising that he won't be playing in Week 2. Since he's little more than a depth corner and special teams player his absence shouldn't impact the team greatly.

    (Updated 09/16/2016)
    09/09/16RBTyler GaffneyFootQUESTIONABLEGaffney (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Patriots on Friday, Mike Petraglia of WEEI.com reports.

    The transaction removes Gaffney from the Patriots' injured reserve. If he can regain his health, it isn't out of the realm of possibility for the running back to resurface with another organization before season's end.

    (Updated 09/09/2016)
    09/09/16LBKevin SnyderUndisclosedQUESTIONABLE (Updated 12/31/1969)
    09/03/16DLRob NinkovichSuspensionSUSPENDThe Patriots have signed Ninkovich (suspension) to a one-year contract extension, NFL.com reports.

    Though he's suspended for the first four weeks of the regular season and concurrently nursing a triceps injury, the Patriots' brass still clearly considers Ninkovich a key piece of their defense for the foreseeable future. Previously set to hit the free agent market after at season's end, Ninkovich is now set to remain in New England through 2017.

    (Updated 09/11/2016)
    08/31/16TEBryce WilliamsUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEWilliams has missed several days of practice with an undisclosed injury.

    Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    07/29/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDWhile playing the entire first half of Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants, Brady (suspension) completed 16 of 26 passes for 166 yards, with a TD and a pick.

    With Brady having seemingly finished up the game in good health, the veteran QB's first regular-season action is set for Week 5 against the Browns, after he serves his four-game suspension at the beginning of the upcoming campaign. In the meantime, Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to start the Patriots' first four games of the upcoming campaign.

    (Updated 09/01/2016)
    06/09/16TEMichael WilliamsKneeOUTWilliams 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.
