    Packers' Isaac Yiadom: Likely to see more work
    15m ago

    Yiadom is likely to start in place of Kevin King (shoulder) in Sunday's matchup against the Bears, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.

    Yiadom has seen around 20 defensive snaps per game to this point in the campaign as a rotational corner. However, with King sidelined Yiadom should be in line for his biggest role of the campaign. Rasul Douglas is also a candidate to see more snaps.

    Bears' Damien Williams: Not activated for Sunday's game
    27m ago

    Williams (illness) wasn't reinstated from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Sunday's game against the Packers, Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    After he was revealed Thursday to have tested positive for COVID-19, Williams theoretically would have had a chance to play Sunday if fully vaccinated, but the running back unsurprisingly didn't clear all health and safety protocols ahead of the Week 6 contest. Khalil Herbert is expected to serve as the Bears' lead option on the ground against the Packers while Williams is sidelined and David Montgomery (knee) is on injured reserve. Meanwhile, Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce are on hand as depth options and could serve as change-of-pace alternatives to Herbert.

    37m ago

    Bateman (groin) is expected to serve as one of the Ravens' three starting receivers in Sunday's game against the Chargers, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Fresh off being reinstated from injured reserve a day earlier, Bateman, a rookie first-round selection, looks poised to make his NFL debut in a starting role alongside Marquise Brown and Devin Duvernay. One of Bateman and Duvernay will likely lose out on reps with the starters once Sammy Watkins (thigh) is deemed ready to play again.

    Niang (hamstring) is active but will not start in Sunday's matchup against Washington, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Niang is dealing with a minor hamstring issue, which could limit him to emergency duties. Mike Remmers is taking over as the starting right tackle while Niang is limited.

    Texans' Marcus Cannon: Likely done for season

    Cannon (back) recently underwent surgery to address a herniated disc and will be sidelined for approximately 12 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Cannon was placed on injured reserve with the back issue prior to the Texans' Week 5 matchup. Given his timeline after surgery, he's unlikely to return this season. Charlie Heck should serve as the starting left tackle in Cannon's absence.

  • Tua Tagovailoa MIA QB
    Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Activated off injured reserve
    1d ago

    Tagovailoa (ribs) was activated off injured reserve Saturday and will start Sunday against the Jaguars, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

    This confirms the optimism both Tagovailoa and coach Brian Flores expressed throughout the week. The 23-year-old is thus set to make his return after the three-week minimum stay on injured reserve. While the team did list him as questionable on the injury report post activation with a ribs injury, he's still expected to start, according to Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus. He'll aim to turn around what has been a stagnant offense under backup Jacoby Brissett, though the second-year signal caller won't have two of his top two options in the form of Will Fuller (finger) and DeVante Parker (shoulder).

  • Russell Wilson SEA QB
    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Officially on IR
    2d ago

    Wilson (finger) was placed on injured reserve Friday, ruling him out through Week 9, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

    Wilson will first be eligible to return Nov. 14 against the Packers, at which point he'll be a little more than five weeks removed from surgery. Some reports suggested he could be out for as little as four weeks, while others put the timeline around 6-to-8 weeks. Either way, the Seahawks plan to start Geno Smith at quarterback for at least three games. Jake Luton, the team's No. 3 QB, presumably will be called up from the practice squad before Sunday.

    Seahawks' Russell Wilson: Headed for IR soon

    Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Wilson (finger) will be placed on injured reserve soon, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Once it becomes official, Wilson won't be eligible to play again until Nov. 14 against the Packers (Week 10). Even that appears optimistic, with most reports suggesting he'll miss at least four weeks and possibly up to eight. While Wilson recovers from Oct. 8 surgery, Geno Smith will serve as Seattle's starting quarterback.

  • Kyler Murray ARI QB
    Cardinals' Kyler Murray: Set to play Sunday
    2d ago

    Murray (right shoulder) practiced in full Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest at Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    During the Cardinals' Week 5 win against the 49ers, Murray was spotted grabbing at his right shoulder and even was looked at by team trainers, but he logged all 61 offensive snaps and completed at least 70 percent of his passes for a fourth consecutive game. Still, his practice reps were limited both Wednesday and Thursday before he handled all of them to wrap up Week 6 prep. Earlier Friday, coach Kliff Kingsbury told Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com when asked if Murray's shoulder was OK, "Yeah, I think so. I think he'll be ready to go." Now that he's clear of the issue, Murray will be out there Sunday versus the Browns' 11th-ranked pass defense (223.2 yards per game allowed).

  • Lamar Jackson BAL QB
    Ravens' Lamar Jackson: Cleared to play Sunday
    2d ago

    Jackson (illness) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers after practicing fully Friday.

    Jackson's Week 6 status came into focus after he missed Thursday's practice, but his full participation Friday paves the way for the QB to start against the 4-1 Chargers on Sunday. Though wideout Sammy Watkins (hamstring) won't be available this weekend, it's expected that promising first-rounder Rashod Bateman (groin) will be activated off IR in advance of the contest. For his part, Jackson will look to build off a big fantasy effort in Baltimore's Week 5 overtime win over the Colts, in which he completed 37 of 43 passes for 442 yards and four TDs, rushed 14 times for 62 yards and tossed a pair of successful two-point conversions.

    Brown (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus Minnesota, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Brown was elevated from the practice squad Saturday but won't be suiting up for Week 6. Royce Freeman will be the sole running back on the active roster behind starter Chuba Hubbard against the Vikings after Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) recently moved to injured reserve.

    Bell is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Bell was elevated from the practice squad Saturday and will be active for the second time this season. The 29-year-old carried four times for 11 yards and failed to catch his lone target during his previous appearance in Week 4. Latavius Murray should lead the backfield while Bell and Devonta Freeman work as the secondary options.

    Bears' Ryan Nall: Active against Green Bay

    Nall (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    Nall logged full practices Thursday and Friday, and while he was questionable in the final injury report, he will suit up in this divisional matchup. He has played just three offensive snaps this season, but he should operate as the backup to rookie Khalil Herbert considering the Bears are quite thin when it comes to their depth at running back.

    Burkhead (hip) is active Week 6 against the Colts.

    While Burkhead was able to overcome a missed practice Thursday followed by a limited practice Friday, expectations should be kept in check, as the veteran is essentially fourth on the depth chart. The 31-year-old has seen more snaps on special teams than on offense in each of the past two weeks, and he only played three offensive snaps in his last game action Week 4 against Buffalo.

    Colts head coach Frank Reich said Hilton (neck) won't face any limitations with his snap count in his season debut Sunday against the Texans, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

    Though Reich previously expressed pessimism that Hilton would even be ready to practice this week, the wideout was ultimately activated from injured reserve Saturday and isn't expected to approach Sunday's contest with any notable restrictions. Expect Hilton to start at receiver alongside Zach Pascal and Michael Pittman, though the latter may have supplanted him as the Colts' top target. The 31-year-old Hilton had already shown signs of decline while working with Philip Rivers in 2020, averaging only 3.7 receptions per game after posting 4.5 in 2019.

With Curtis Samuel (groin) and Cam Sims (hamstring) both inactive for Week 6, Brown could step into a top-three role at receiver alongside Terry McLaurin and Adam Humphries.

    For the second straight contest, Hockenson is coming off a week in which his practice reps were capped by a knee issue. Still, he logged 81 percent of the offensive snaps last Sunday at Minnesota, which is in the realm of his usual workload (81-93 percent on any given game this season). Hockenson has been relatively quiet since reaching the end zone in Weeks 1 and 2, and he may have a tough time producing Sunday versus a Cincy defense that has allowed just 30.6 receiving yards per game to tight ends this season.

    For the second straight week, Wright has won out in the competition for kicking duties with Lambo, who has been forced to battle for his job since his Week 4 absence due to a personal matter. Though he converted on only one of two extra-point tries and hit the crossbar and missed on a 53-yard attempt in last week's loss to the Titans, Wright could build up some more job security with a stronger showing in London.

    The veteran kicker had a relatively easy and mostly pressure-free night, and he was automatic on all four point-after attempts. There will be games such as Thursday's during which the efficiency of the Buccaneers' offense caps Succop's fantasy upside, but he still has a solid 45 points through six games heading into a Week 7 home matchup versus the Bears a week from Sunday.
