Darren Sproles

PHI -RB

1 hour ago

Sproles limited again Thursday

Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday.  He's still on track to play against the Cardinals this weekend, but we'd feel more comfortable about his Week 8 fantasy outlook if he's a full participant on Friday.

James Starks

GB -RB

Starks back at practice Thursday

After sitting out on Wednesday, Packers RB James Starks (ankle) got back on the practice field on Thursday.  It puts him on track to play in a plus matchup against the Saints on Sunday night.  Starks has totaled 27 carries and 5 catches over his last 3 games, putting him on the low-end RB3 radar.

A.J. Green

CIN -WR

2 hours ago

Green still out Thursday

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined on Thursday.  There was early-week optimism that he'd be back for Sunday's game against the Ravens, but that's looking less likely now.  We'll have another update on Green tomorrow.

Robert Griffin III

WAS -QB

3 hours ago

Griffin could be held out until Week 11

Redskins HC Jay Gruden hinted that QB Robert Griffin (ankle) might be held out through the Week 10 bye.  “You’ve got a good bye week, you’ve got a couple weeks to make sure it’s ready," Gruden said.  “He’s progressing at a great rate, like we knew he would."  Gruden went on to explain that RG3 will need to receive medical clearance and then prove that he's comfortable in the offense again before he returns.  “You know, it’s a very difficult position to play, and just because he’s healthy, he hasn’t taken a meaningful rep in about six weeks,” Gruden said.  "You need your reps to play, and play successfully. You can’t just throw a guy out there without the reps, and the practice time, and the continuity with the receivers and the backs and the tight ends. So it’ll be a little bit of a process — probably a little bit more than people think — but we’ll play it by ear and see how he’s doing on a daily basis.”

Reggie Wayne

IND -WR

3 hours ago

Wayne out again Thursday

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday.  His injury isn't serious, but there's a good chance he's held out of this weekend's game against the Steelers.  That'd mean increased snaps for WRs Hakeem Nicks and Donte Moncrief.

Eric Ebron

DET -TE

3 hours ago

Lions TEs banged up

Lions TEs Brandon Pettigrew (foot), Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) are unlikely to play against the Falcons this weekend.  All 3 guys sat out practice on Wednesday and Thursday.  It'll leave Detroit with Kellen Davis and Jordan Thompson at TE.  Neither guy is a fantasy option.  WR Golden Tate is a good bet for double-digit targets on Sunday even if WR Calvin Johnson returns.  If Johnson sits out, WR Corey Fuller will be an intriguing Week 8 flier.

Harry Douglas

ATL -WR

Douglas returns to practice

Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) put in a limited practice on Thursday. Atlanta’s #3 WR has missed the past 4 games, but this is certainly a step in the right direction. He’s made the trip to London, and there's a chance he suits up Sunday vs. Detroit. Even if that happens, Douglas won't be a fantasy option as a guy who would be highly likely to play limited snaps.

Reggie Bush

DET -RB

6 hours ago

Bush held out Thursday

Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice after putting in a limited workout on Wednesday.  It's unclear if he suffered a setback or if this was a planned day off.  Either way, he won't be at 100% if he plays against Atlanta on Sunday.  He'll be a risky fantasy starter, despite the plus matchup.

Calvin Johnson

DET -WR

6 hours ago

Johnson does more in practice Thursday

Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday and reportedly did even more in Thursday's workout.  Johnson was "cutting and running routes," according to insider Tim Twentyman.  "We're doing everything from straight-forward running to moving laterally as well," Johnson said. "Things are going good. We're moving in a positive direction."  He added, though, that he still hasn't fully tested the ankle and that a final decision on his Week 8 status might not be made until pregame warmups on Sunday.  We'll continue to track his progress.  If Johnson does play, we have to believe he'll be much more effective than he was in his last couple outings.

Toby Gerhart

JAC -RB

6 hours ago

Gerhart set to return for Week 8

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) is expected back for this weekend's game against the Dolphins, according to insider Hays Carlyon.  Gerhart has missed the past 2 games, watching Denard Robinson turn in the best performance by a Jags RB this season last Sunday.  But HC Gus Bradley said the team will "continue to mix and match" in the backfield.  Robinson is still the best bet to lead the team in touches against Miami this weekend, but Gerhart will likely play in short-yardage and goal-line situations.  And Robinson probably won't be on a long leash if he struggles early on.
