As of Sunday morning, here are the latest injury updates. (I’ve only included players that are on the fantasy radar.)
Roddy White – thigh – probable to play. Shouldn’t be any concern starting him here…except facing the Eagles’ secondary.
Lee Evans – ankle – probable to play.
Stevie Johnson – groin – will play.
Marion Barber – calf – out. Good news for Forte owners.
Roy Williams – groin – game time decision. Not enough of a factor to take the rick. Start another receiver. Update: INACTIVE
Andy Dalton – wrist – probably to play. I hope no one is starting Dalton, but this should make a difference to AJ Green owners.
Mohamed Massaquoi – hamstring – probable to play.
Dez Bryant – quadriceps – game time decision. Bryant’s injury slowed him down noticeably in last weeks game, but he’s enough of a factor that it’s probably worth taking the risk. Just bear in mind he plays at 4 on Sunday, so have a later game option to take his place, in case he’s a no go.
Miles Austin – hamstring – will play.
Knowshon Moreno – hamstring – unlikely to play.
Brandon Lloyd – groin – game time decision. He practiced on Friday, so that should be a good sign for his availability on Sunday.
Calvin Johnson – ankle – will play.
Jermichael Finley – ankle – will play.
Kevin Walter – shoulder – game time decision. Walter is unlikely to play, and Jacoby Jones should start in his place.
Derrick Ward – ankle – out.
Arian Foster – hamstring – probable to play. Kubiak is going to be careful about overworking his star, so don’t expect to get what you paid for Foster back yet.
Anthony Gonzalez – hamstring – probable to play. You shouldn’t be starting any Colts receiver who’s not Reggie Wayne.
Jason Hill – hip – unlikely to play. He’s spent his down time this past week trash-talking Revis–I wonder if he’d have been so vocal if he was actually going to face him.
Marcedes Lewis – calf – unlikely to play. Update: INACTIVE
Steve Breaston – hamstring – probable to play.
Daniel Thomas – hamstring – will play. Reggie Bush is still RB1 in Miami.
Lance Moore – groin – probable to play. Meachem is the only Saints WR I would start with confidence.
Marques Colston – shoulder – out. Possibly returning Week 6.
Hakeem Nicks – knee – game time decision. Given that this is a Monday night game, it will be very risky to count on him. Consider picking up Hixon or Salas as a sub in case he doesn’t go.
Santonio Holmes – knee – game time decision. Jet should be running the ball a lot more this week, so probably not worth the risk. Update: WILL START
Joe McKnight – finger – will play.
Jacoby Ford – hamstring – will not play. Raiders receivers have been decimated. Could bode well for McFadden owners.
Darrius Heyward-Bey – knee – game time decision. Not worth the risk–find a better option. Update: INACTIVE
Kevin Boss – knee – probable to play. Could be the #1 target for Campbell this week? Update: INACTIVE
Darren McFadden – shoulder – will play.
Steve Smith (PHI) – knee – probable to play. Smith was dressed last week too, but they didn’t use him. Curious to see how he does if/when he starts playing.
Jerricho Cotchery – hamstring – out.
Patrick Crayton – ankle – probable to play.
Mike Tolbert – knee – will play.
Nate Kaeding – knee – out for season. (Screwing over morons everywhere who took a kicker before the last round….)
Sidney Rice – shoulder – out. Possible return next week?
Marshawn Lynch – ankle – will play.
Michael Crabtree – foot – game time decision. Not worth the risk.
Sam Bradford – finger – will play.
Steven Jackson – quadriceps – out. Possible return next week? Update: JACKSON HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO GAME TIME DECISION
Danny Amendola – elbow – out. Possble return Week 5?
Javon Ringer – back – will play.
Ryan Torain – hand – probable to play. Likely behind Hightower and Helu in depth charts, so don’t start him.
Chris Cooley – knee – probable to play. Fred Davis is the Redskins TE you want, though.
Brandon Banks – knee – questionable.
