Cushing questionable for Week 8

Texans LB Brian Cushing missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Cushing told ESPN.com "we'll see how it goes" when asked whether his bothersome left knee would be ready for the game. “We’re going to make the best decision for myself (and) the team,” he added. “I think we all can agree the last couple weeks I haven’t really been myself. It’s been really hard on me." Cushing has had surgery on the same knee each of the past 2 offseasons and has reportedly had the joint drained multiple times this year while missing plenty of practice and playing fewer snaps in the games to manage it. Cushing will make for a risk/reward IDP option if he's active.

Berry questionable for Week 8

Chiefs S Eric Berry is questionable for Sunday's meeting with the Rams after putting in another limited workout Wednesday. It's at least an improvement over Week 7, when he returned to the practice field only to find that his sprained ankle wasn't ready and was ruled out before Sunday. If Berry's active for the game, he'll be worth inserting into plenty of IDP lineups. Check the Week 8 rankings for just how high we're willing to consider him.

Chicago Bears

Fuller expected to play; Briggs, Bostic not

Bears rookie CB Kyle Fuller is expected to play Sunday against New England despite breaking his right hand and suffering a hip pointer in the Week 7 loss to Miami. Playing with a cast will obviously affect Fuller's ability to secure INTs, which makes him tough to like on the IDP front. Elsewhere on the Chicago D, starting LBs Lance Briggs (ribs) and Jon Bostic (back) are doubtful for Sunday despite putting in limited practices all week.

Ryan Shazier

Shazier expected to play in Week 8

Steelers LB Ryan Shazier practice again Friday and is expected to play Sunday against the Colts. He's officially listed as "probable" after missing the past 4 games with a knee sprain. Shazier should immediately reclaim the ILB starting job next to Lawrence Timmons, and likely not take long to get back to his full role. The rookie appeared close to returning last week, but Pittsburgh held him out of the Monday night win over Houston.

Shane Vereen

NE -RB

Vereen questionable with illness

After sitting out Friday's practice with an illness, Patriots RB Shane Vereen showed up as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. We'll obviously keep an eye on his status come game day, but New England's notorious for overusing the "questionable" tag. Unless he suddenly came down with Jared Allen-level pneumonia, we expect Vereen to be ready to face his brother, Brock Vereen, and Chicago on Sunday.

Jimmy Graham

NO -TE

Graham questionable for Week 8

Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. He’s going to play, but the question is just how productive he’ll be. Graham played just 40% of the snaps last week and finished without a catch. He put in 3 limited practices this week after just 2 last week. Graham’s fantasy ceiling and floor are lower than usual for Week 8, but he remains a top-5 TE play thanks to his talent and matchup.

Khiry Robinson

NO -RB

Robinson ruled out for Week 8

Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) has been ruled out for Sunday night's game against the Packers.  RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is also out.  It makes RBs Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet even more intriguing Week 8 fantasy options.  Ingram could see 15+ touches in what should be a high-scoring game.  Cadet, meanwhile, figures to play a significant role in the passing game.  He's a potential RB3 in PPR leagues.

Vincent Jackson

TB -WR

Jackson questionable for Week 8

Bucs WR Vincent Jackson (ribs) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He put in 3 limited practices. V-Jax was listed as questionable prior to Tampa’s last game and ended up playing 88% of the snaps and seeing 11 targets. There’s been nothing to suggest he’s in any danger of missing this weekend’s game. Jackson is a strong WR2 in a plus matchup.

Toby Gerhart

JAC -RB

19 hours ago

Gerhart probable for Week 8

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) is probable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so that foot shouldn’t be an issue. HC Gus Bradley confirmed earlier in the week that Denard Robinson will remain the lead back, though. Gerhart should mix in for a handful of touches, probably including goal-line work, but isn’t a fantasy option.

Brian Cushing

Cushing might not miss games after all

Someone told Texans HC Bill O'Brien about this week's report that LB Brian Cushing would miss at least a game because of knee trouble. Coach says don't buy it. “I wasn’t aware of that report. I was trying to figure out how to get a first down against the Tennessee Titans, because it was third-down night,” O’Brien said, per the Houston Chronicle. “And, secondly, there is no accuracy to that report.” O'Brien said that Cushing is "getting better every day" and traveling with the team to Tennessee. He said the LB missed practice time to "ease him back into the week" after the Monday night game at Pittsburgh. We'll keep an eye on Cushing's status for Sunday's game and have added him back into the Week 8 LB rankings.
