Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart injured his right knee in Sunday night's loss to the Steelers.  The team is calling it a contusion for now, but Stewart will likely undergo additional testing on Monday.  Stay tuned for an update.

Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (quad) is inactive for tonight's game against the Steelers.  It's surprising after the team was confident all week that he'd be available.  It leaves Jonathan Stewart as the lead back in a plus matchup.

Chargers RB Danny Woodhead suffered a fractured fibula and severe high-ankle sprain in Sunday's game against the Bills, according to Fox Sports' Alex Marvez.  Woodhead likely needs season-ending surgery.  It's a tough break for a backfield that just lost Ryan Mathews last week.  Donald Brown will be a workhorse until Mathews returns.  He racked up a whopping 36 touches in Week 3 (31 carries, 5 catches) and should be good for 20+ as long as Mathews is out.  That workload will make Brown a weekly RB2.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta dislocated his right hip in Sunday's game against the Browns.  It's the same hip he dislocated and fractured last summer.  It's unclear if the hip is fractured this time, which would force Pitta to have surgery that could end his season.  Even if it's not fractured, Pitta is going to be sidelined a while.  Hopefully we'll get a more concrete timetable within the next couple days.  Owen Daniels will step in as Baltimore's lead TE while Pitta is out.  OC Gary Kubiak's TE-friendly offense will make him a viable spot starter.

Washington CB DeAngelo Hall says he suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Sunday's loss at Philadelphia, according to ESPN's John Keim.  That would obviously end the year for the high-ceiling IDP.  E.J. Biggers sits behind Hall on the depth chart, though Bashaud Breeland got on the field a lot against Philly.  Either would have to prove himself an IDP target before you should bother with him.

Raiders WR Rod Streater suffered a broken foot in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.  It'll cost him multiple weeks and potentially the rest of the season depending on the location of the break.  We should learn more tomorrow, but Streater is droppable in all leagues now.  Oakland will move forward with James Jones, Denarius Moore and Andre Holmes as its top 3 WRs.

Jaguars HC Gus Bradley named QB Blake Bortles his Week 4 starter immediately after Sunday's loss to the Colts.  Bortles had an up-and-down debut, tossing 2 TDs and 2 INTs.  But he's clearly Jacksonville's best option.  The rookie figures to hang on to the starting gig for the rest of the season.  He's worth adding in deep fantasy leagues.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer announced after Sunday's loss to the Saints that QB Matt Cassel fractured "several" bones in his foot.  That figures to know him out for a significant length of time and opens the door for QB Teddy Bridgewater.  The rookie completed 12 of 20 passes for 150 yards in his NFL debut, adding 27 more yards on 6 carries.  Bridgewater is worth grabbing in all 2-QB leagues and deeper 1-QB setups.  His next 3 games are against the Falcons, Packers and Lions.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph suffered a groin injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Saints.  He was shown standing on the sidelines without his helmet, so his day is likely over.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.  His return is considered questionable, but we doubt he'll be back out there with Indy playing with a 30-3 lead.

Update: HC Chuck Pagano said after the game that Hilton's injury isn't believed to be serious.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Dolphins.  He worked out with trainers in warmups but wasn't healthy enough to play.  Knile Davis will operate as Kansas City's feature back and is a top-10 fantasy option.

Jaguars QB Chad Henne was benched for the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Colts.  He completed 4 of 7 passes for 33 yards in the first 30 minutes.  QB Blake Bortles is in at QB for Jacksonville -- potentially for good.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta suffered an apparent knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game.  It was a non-contact injury, and Pitta was carted off the field.  That suggests a significant injury.  We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Washington RB Alfred Morris hurt his left knee in the 2nd quarter of today's game against the Eagles.  QB Kirk Cousins got knocked into him, and Morris appeared to be in considerable pain on the sideline, according to multiple reports.  He has kept his helmet on while getting checked, though, so we'll see if that signals a likelihood to return.

Update: Morris later returned.
