NFL Recent Player News
|10/21/2016||Carlos Hyde, SF, RB|
|Hyde will miss Sunday's game against Tampa Bay with a shoulder injury.
Analysis: Hyde hurt his shoulder last week in Buffalo and was listed Friday as out for the game. Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn will pick up most of the rushing load for the Niners (1-5). Hyde leads the team with 429 yards rushing and six TDs.
|10/21/2016||Jamaal Charles, KC, RB|
|Charles is experiencing swelling in his surgically repaired right knee, placing his status for Sunday's game against New Orleans in question.
Analysis: Charles had to leave Friday's practice after his knee flared up and is listed as questionable for the game. "We think everything will be alright as we go," coach Andy Reid said afterward. The two-time All-Pro missed Kansas City's first three games recovering from last year's ACL surgery and has been limited to 11 rush attempts in two games since returning.
|10/21/2016||Terrell Suggs, Bal, LB|
|Suggs (biceps) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: He's tied for seventh in the NFL with five sacks.
|10/21/2016||Robert Woods, Buf, WR|
|The Bills have declared Woods doubtful for Sunday's game at Miami.
Analysis: Woods, who had been operating as Buffalo's No. 1 receiver with Sammy Watkins out indefinitely, missed practice the entire week while wearing a walking boot on his right foot. With both Woods and Watkins likely out, the Bills will turn to a committee consisting of Marquis Goodwin, Justin Hunter and Walter Powell.
|10/21/2016||Muhammad Wilkerson, NYJ, DE|
|Wilkerson did not practice Friday due to an ankle injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Baltimore.
Analysis: Wilkerson seems to be trending towards missing the contest after coach Todd Bowles said the standout defensive lineman was "more sore than normal" on Friday. Wilkerson had 1 1/2 sacks in the season opener but hasn't been much of a factor in recent games, which suggests that he's been playing hurt.
|10/21/2016||Ty Montgomery, GB, WR|
|Montgomery finished with 10 catches for 66 yards, and nine carries for 60 yards in the Packers' 26-10 win over the Bears.
Analysis: Talk about versatility. With Green Bay out of running backs, Montgomery got the start in the backfield. He's also caught 10 passes in each of the past two weeks.
|10/21/2016||Randall Cobb, GB, WR|
|Cobb finished with 11 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown and also had five carries for the running back-starved Packers in a 26-10 win over the Bears.
Analysis: Cobb has been targets 37 times and caught 27 passes in the last three weeks.
|10/21/2016||Davante Adams, GB, WR|
|Adams had 13 catches for a career-high 132 yards and two TDs in the Packers' 26-10 win over the Bears.
Analysis: Adams had just been cleared earlier Thursday from the NFL's concussion protocol after leaving the loss Sunday to Dallas. He looked like one of the few Packers receivers capable of creating a little separation, so there's a good chance he could be the team's new No. 1 target.
|10/21/2016||Aaron Rodgers, GB, QB|
|Rodgers threw for 326 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' 26-10 win over the Bears, going 39 of 56 to set a franchise record for completions.
Analysis: The Packers' offense doesn't look right regardless of this result. They don't have any healthy running backs and the receivers aren't getting any separation. It's a credit to Rodgers that he can still put up decent fantasy numbers with the poor playing calling and execution of Green Bay's other skill-position players.
|10/20/2016||Matt Barkley, Chi, QB|
|Barkley subbed in for an injured Brian Hoyer on Thursday, going 6 for 15 for 81 yards and two interceptions in a loss at Green Bay.
Analysis: We don't think Barkley will get a start in the Bears' next game versus Minnesota on Oct. 31. Jay Cutler will likely be back after Hoyer suffered a broken arm.
|10/20/2016||Brian Hoyer, Chi, QB|
|Hoyer broke his left arm in the second quarter Thursday night at Green Bay.
Analysis: Hoyer left after getting hit by Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers on an incompletion on third-and-6 from the 50 with 10:21 left in the quarter. The right-handed Hoyer looked as if he landed on his left arm. He was attended to by trainers on the field for a couple minutes before going to the locker room. Hoyer was 4 of 11 for 49 yards. He started for Jay Cutler, who missed his fifth straight game with a right thumb injury.
|10/20/2016||Robbie Gould, NYG, K|
|Gould is going to London with the Giants for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Analysis: With Josh Brown embroiled in a domestic abuse controversy, the Giants needed a kicker. They may have found one in the former Pro Bowler, and Gould's track record is good enough that Brown should be out of a job shortly.
|10/20/2016||Matt Forte, NYJ, RB|
|Forte practiced in full on Thursday despite dealing with a knee injury.
Analysis: Forte should be good to go this weekend for the Jets, who may have to rely on him with Geno Smith starting under center.
|10/20/2016||Martellus Bennett, NE, TE|
|Bennett was limited in Thursday's practice due to an ankle injury.
Analysis: Bennett played through the injury last weekend, so we expect he'll be good to go this Sunday.
|10/20/2016||Latavius Murray, Oak, RB|
|Murray practiced for a second straight day after missing two games with a toe injury.
Analysis: Murray has been limited but the coaching staff is hopeful he can play in Jacksonville.
|10/20/2016||Andrew Luck, Ind, QB|
|Luck was downgraded to questionable on Thursday due to ankle and shoulder injuries.
Analysis: Luck has been banged up all season, so this shouldn't alarm fantasy owners. He's expected to have a good day on Sunday against the Titans.
|10/20/2016||Don Jackson, GB, RB|
|The Packers plan to start Jackson at running back after the rookie was activated from the practice squad.
Analysis: The Packers are completely decimated at running back, so it might be wise to start Aaron Rodgers on Thursday night against the rival Bears.
|10/20/2016||Josh Brown, NYG, K|
|Brown was placed on the commissioner's exempt list Friday, a move that only NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has the authority to make.
Analysis: Giants coach Ben McAdoo continues to show support for Brown even after the embattled kicker admitted to years of abusive behavior toward his ex-wife in newly released police documents. Brown did not travel with the team for Sunday's game in London against the Rams.
|10/20/2016||DeSean Jackson, Was, WR|
|Jackson (shoulder) has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Detroit.
Analysis: Jackson was held out of Wednesday and Thursday's practices to rest his sore shoulder but participated in Friday's session, so he doesn't appear to be in much danger of sitting. The speedster has just 95 yards on eight catches over the past three games.
|10/20/2016||Mike Gillislee, Buf, RB|
|Gillislee would likely get the bulk of the carries Sunday at Miami if LeSean McCoy is unable to play.
Analysis: With McCoy missing practice Thursday after leaving early Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, his status for Sunday is uncertain. Gillislee is a viable fantasy option if McCoy sits, having gained 61 yards and a touchdown on six carries last week. Plus, the Dolphins run defense has allowed an average of 147 yards per game.
