Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar injured his left knee in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game against the Saints. It was a non-contact injury, and Dunbar hardly put any weight on the leg as he was helped off the field. We'll pass along an update when we get one.
Cowboys OLB Sean Lee left in the 1st half of Sunday night's game against the Saints with a concussion. That obviously keeps him out for the rest of the game and will require him to pass through the league protocol before he returns to the field. If Lee misses Week 5, he might create an opening for LB Rolando McClain to get back into the lineup in his 1st week back from suspension.
The Colts will put QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) through another workout on Monday. “He’s getting treatment right now," HC Chuck Pagano said after the win over the Jaguars. "He’ll work out (Monday) and we’ll take it day-to-day and see where he’s at." Luck has just a few days to get ready for Thursday night's tilt with the Texans. We'll continue to closely track his progress.
The Redskins announced that TE Jordan Reed sustained a concussion in Sunday's win over the Eagles. He missed 6 games with a concussion back in 2013 and suffered at least 2 in college. We'll track his progression through the league's protocol, but consider Reed extremely iffy to be ready for next weekend's game against the Falcons.
Dallas RB Christine Michael is active for tonight’s game in
New Orleans. Michael, acquired just before
the regular season, will play his first game as a Cowboy. He handled some 1st team reps in
practice this week and might see more than just a few touches. Joseph Randle scored 3 TDs last week but posted negative yardage in the 2nd half of a loss to Atlanta.
As expected, Saints QB Drew Brees (shoulder) is active for tonight’s
meeting with Dallas. We’ll keep a close
eye on his arm strength, but the veteran certainly carries QB1 upside at home
in a positive matchup.
Texans WR Cecil Shorts has a dislocated shoulder, according to insider Adam Caplan. That figures to cost him multiple games. Shorts had a busy start to the season, seeing 39 targets through 4 games. Houston also lost WR Nate Washington to a hamstring injury this week. The injuries will force Keith Mumphery and Jaelen Strong into bigger roles. Strong, a 3rd-round rookie, is worth a look in deep fantasy leagues.
Rams OLB Alec Ogletree left Sunday's game at Arizona with an ankle injury. The team has ruled him out for the day. We'll see how serious the situation is, but early speculation makes it sound likely to be a multiple-week issue. A healthy Ogletree is a high-LB2 to low-LB1 in IDP leagues.
Browns S Tashaun Gipson left in the 3rd quarter at San Diego after a teammate came down on his left ankle at the end of a long catch-and-run by Chargers RB Danny Woodhead. We'll await further word on his status.
