Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (shoulder) and DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder) are inactive for tonight's game against the Bills. Questionable defenders CB Jonathan Jones (neck), CB J.C. Jackson (knee), DE John Simon (hamstring) and DT Adam Butler (shoulder) are active.

Basically any questionable Patriots defensive player in play for IDP use is active today vs. Houston. That includes CB Stephon Gilmore (knee), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand), DE John Simon (elbow) and DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee).

Let's just list the Patriots defensive players who are questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans:

LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin)
DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand)
DE John Simon (elbow)
DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee)
CB Stephon Gilmore (knee)

Gilmore sounds like he expects to return after missing the past 3 games. None of these guys makes for a strong IDP play, but we'll check all their statuses Sunday morning.

The multitude of questionable Patriots for Sunday night's game against the Ravens includes DE Deatrich Wise, DE John Simon, LB Ja'Whaun Bentley and CB Stephon Gilmore. None of the 4 saw meaningful changes to their practice participation vs. last week. Gilmore and Bentley missed that game (against the Jets. Wise and Simon played through questionable tags.

Patriots DE Shilique Calhoun, CB J.C. Jackson, DE John Simon and DE Deatrich Wise are active for tonight's game against the Jets. New England previously downgraded CB Stephon Gilmore, DE Lawrence Guy and LB Ja'Whaun Bentley to out for the game.

The Patriots list a bunch of defensive players as questionable for Monday night's game against the Jets. That includes DE Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow, knee), CB Stephon Gilmore (knee), DE Shilique Calhoun (knee), LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (groin), DE Deatrich Wise (knee, hand), CB J.C. Jackson (knee) and DE John Simon (elbow). None of those guys is a high-level IDP option, so they're likely not worth waiting on in setting your fantasy lineup. But we'll see who's in and who's out Monday evening.

Patriots DE John Simon (shoulder) and CB J.C. Jackson (knee) are active for today's game against the Bills. Each entered the day questionable but presents some upside in deep IDP formats.

Patriots CBs Stephon Gilmore and J.C. Jackson are both questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills after suffering knee injuries during the practice week. Gilmore's injury happened Thursday. An MRI came back negative, but he sat out Friday's practice. Jackson left Friday's workout early with his ailment after not showing up on the injury report the previous 2 days. Missing either or both would obviously hurt an already struggling defense and improve the matchup for Buffalo WRs Stefon Diggs and/or John Brown -- as well as QB Josh Allen. DE John Simon is also questionable with a shoulder issue that limited him in practice all week.

The Colts plan to switch to a 4-3 base front on defense this season, which will include shifting OLB John Simon to DE. GM Chris Ballard spoke to that Friday and said he expects it to be a positive move for his top 3 edge players. “At the end of the day, even in the 3-4, you’re still in a four-man front," Ballard said, per the Indianapolis Star. "It’s the difference between putting your hand on the ground and standing up. John Simon played in a 4-3 at Ohio State, so he’s done it before. Great effort, he’s strong. He’ll fit in.” Simon tallied 16 sacks and 30.5 total tackles for loss over his final 2 Buckeye seasons. At 6'1, 250 pounds, though, he'll be challenged as a full-time DE -- especially on the right side. We'll see exactly how the playing time breaks down among Simon, Jabaal Sheard and 2017 rookie Tarell Basham. Sheard has played various schemes and delivered 13 sacks over 2 injury-impacted seasons as a 4-3 DE with the Patriots. Basham played 4-3 DE in college and reportedly struggled with the transition to standup rusher last season. There's potential IDP value to all 3. We'll evaluate the situation as we move into summer.

Colts OLB John Simon left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars early with a shoulder stinger, and it sounds significant. HC Chuck Pagano told reporters Monday that Simon will "miss some time." That at least puts a key pass rusher and edge run defender out for this weekend's trip to Cincinnati.

The Texans have ruled DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) out for Sunday's game at Green Bay. The defense will also be missing OLB John Simon (chest), who was previously ruled out, and might miss S Andre Hal (illness) as well. Losing any defensive pieces is not a great way to head into a matchup with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.
