Jimmie Ward Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Texans have claimed S Kareem Jackson off waivers from the Broncos. Denver dumped the twice-suspended veteran, opting to continue with P.J. Locke next to S Justin Simmons. Jackson could see immediate time for a Houston defense that lost Jimmie Ward to a quad injury against the Browns. It's not yet clear how long Ward will be out. We'll watch for specifics on Jackson's Week 17 role.

The Texans have ruled S Jalen Pitre (bruised lung) and S Jimmie Ward (hip) out for Sunday's game against the Colts. That leaves Eric Murray and M.J. Stewart as the starters. Both carry some mild IDP intrigue. Indy supplied 15 total tackles to Jacksonville's starting safeties in Week 1.

The 49ers lost CB Emmanuel Moseley in the 2nd half of Sunday's win over the Panthers to a left knee injury that they fear is an ACL tear, according to Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area. We'll watch for confirmation today. San Francisco also watched S Jimmie Ward break his left hand in his 1st game back of the year (thanks to a hamstring injury). It's not clear yet whether he'll miss further time.

The 49ers plan to place S Jimmie Ward on short-term IR, and he's expected to miss at least 4 games. GM John Lynch announced the plan Thursday night, for a hamstring injury that HC Kyle Shanahan had previously deemed "significant."

Niners S Jimmie Ward is dealing with a hamstring injury. According to ESPN's Nick Wagoner, HC Kyle Shanahan called it "worse than others" and said Ward is in danger of missing Week 1. It's not a big storyline for IDP purposes, but Ward has a place in deep leagues. His absence would be a slight knock on the team defense as well.

Niners S Jimmie Ward (quad) is active for tonight's game against the Rams. He returns after missing Week 9 with the injury.
