Colts S Malik Hooker suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That will end the 1st-round pick's rookie season. We'll see if it also threatens the start of his 2nd year. Hooker grabbed 3 INTs among his 5 games as a starter.
The Dolphins believe QB Jay Cutler suffered a cracked rib in Sunday's game against the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cutler is undergoing more tests to confirm. Rapoport adds that he'll "likely" miss Thursday night's game against the Ravens but has a chance to be back for Week 9. ESPN’s Adam Schefter hears that Cutler could miss 2-3 weeks. QB Matt Moore will start for however long Cutler is out. He completed 13 of 21 passes for 188 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT while leading Miami to a comeback win vs. the Jets. Moore is a capable QB who can keep the offense on track.
Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants after injuring his ankle in the 1st quarter. This is presumably the same ankle that sidelined him the past 3 weeks. Prosise continues to have major trouble staying healthy.
Titans HC Mike Mularkey said after Sunday's win over the Browns that TE Delanie Walker has a sprained ankle. So it's not broken. But the severity and location (high vs. low) will determine how long Walker is sidelined. We should learn more over the next 24 hours. Jonnu Smith will operate as Tennessee's lead pass-catching TE while Walker is out.
Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has a broken left arm, HC Bruce Arians announced after Sunday's loss to the Rams. He needs surgery and is expected to miss 8 weeks. That'd put him back on the field for Week 16. Palmer should be dropped from fantasy rosters. His loss leaves Arizona with QB Drew Stanton, who was abysmal in relief vs. Los Angeles, completing just 5 of 14 passes for 62 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. He entered the game with a career 53.2% completion rate. Stanton is obviously a huge downgrade for this offense. The Cardinals figure to lean heavily on RB Adrian Peterson going forward.
Titans TE Delanie Walker injured his right ankle in overtime of Sunday's game against the Browns. He was in obvious pain and had to be helped off the field without putting any weight on that ankle. We'll pass along an update when we get one.
Seahawks DE Michael Bennett is active for today's game against the Giants. He's dealing with a plantar fascia injury that's sure to be painful, but Bennett played nearly his usual full snap allotment even in the Week 5 game in which he got hurt. Use him as normal in IDP leagues.
Chargers DT Corey Liuget (back) is inactive for today's game against the Broncos. He's not a terrific IDP option when healthy, so his status shouldn't affect fantasy lineups. S Adrian Phillips (neck) is active but hasn't seen consistent enough playing time yet to be an IDP option.
