Justin Forsett

BAL -RB

Forsett back at practice Thursday

Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday.  It's confirmation that he'll be good to go for Sunday night's showdown with the Steelers.  Forsett has averaged 18 carries over his last 3 games, making him a strong fantasy play against Pittsburgh's middling run defense.

Giovani Bernard

Bernard out again Thursday

Bengals RB Gio Bernard (hip) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday.  "You have to figure he's going to be out," insider Geoff Hobson tweeted.  We'll have another update on Bernard tomorrow, but owners should plan on being without him for Week 9.  Sans Bernard, Cincinnati's backfield would belong to Jeremy Hill.  The rookie is averaging just 3.9 yards per carry this season but is a talented runner who can also contribute in the passing game.  A virtual lock for 15 touches with a chance at 20+, Hill would be a strong RB2 against the Jaguars.

Trent Richardson

IND -RB

Richardson back at practice Thursday

Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is back at practice on Thursday.  He didn't practice at all last week and then never got on the field against the Steelers.  Three practices this week would make him a good bet to return to his normal role against the Giants on Monday night.  In that case, Richardson will be a fine RB2 in a week with 6 teams on bye.

Rashad Jennings

NYG -RB

Jennings won't play Week 9

Giants HC Tom Coughlin admitted Thursday morning that RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will not play against the Colts on Monday night.  We knew that Jennings was a long shot for that one, but the fact that he's already been ruled out doesn't bode well for his Week 10 status.  Jennings just resumed running on Monday and won't practice today.  RB Andre Williams gets another start this week against a leaky Colts run defense.  The downside is that he could be phased out of the game plan if New York is forced to go pass-heavy.

Alex Smith

KC -QB

Smith practicing in full

Chiefs QB Alex Smith (shoulder) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.  He threw "effortlessly" in the portion open to the media, per insider Randy Covitz.  Smith sprained his throwing shoulder in last week's game against the Rams but never left and didn't seem inhibited.  He's a solid Week 9 spot-start option against the Jets' 32nd-ranked QB defense.

Donald Brown

SD -RB

Brown returns to the field

Chargers RB Donald Brown has been cleared to return to action after missing the past 3 games with a concussion. He practiced Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering the injury Oct. 5. Don't expect Brown to steal too much work from Branden Oliver, who has way outperformed the veteran since stepping in.

Charles Sims

TB -RB

17 hours ago

Sims "has a chance" to play Week 9

Bucs HC Lovie Smith said RB Charles Sims (ankle) "has a chance" to play against the Browns on Sunday.  Sims has been practicing since last week, but Tampa is being cautious with its 3rd-round rookie.  If Sims is active this weekend, we're expecting him to play a change-of-pace role.  He'd be a RB3/flex flier.

A.J. Green

CIN -WR

17 hours ago

Green won't play limited snaps

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said that he'll be a full-go whenever he returns to game action.  “If I’m healthy, I’m playing," he said. “If I’m playing, I’m playing all the snaps. If I’m going, I’m going.”  Green was officially limited in practice and has a good chance to play against the Jaguars this weekend.  If he's active, he'll be a must-start.

Khiry Robinson

NO -RB

17 hours ago

Robinson questionable for Week 9

Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Panthers.  He didn't practice at all this week, though, and all indications are that he won't play.  We'll have Robinson's official status at 7 pm ET tomorrow.

Robert Griffin III

WAS -QB

19 hours ago

Griffin will start Week 9

Multiple sources report that Redskins QB Robert Griffin (ankle) will start Sunday's game against the Vikings.  The team was obviously satisfied with how he looked in Wednesday's full practice.  And Washington has been cautious with RG3's return, so we can be fairly confident that he's back to 100%.  He'll still make for an extremely risky Week 9 fantasy option, though.  It'll be his 1st action since Week 2, and it's not like Griffin is returning to an offense he's been playing in for years.  He struggled in the preseason and was shaky in the season opener.  RG3 is best off on fantasy benches this week.  If he looks good, he'll be an upside play coming out of the bye against the Bucs.
