Texans starting CBs Johnathan Joseph and Bradley Roby are questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts because of hamstring injuries. Each guy put in limited practices all week. We'll see about their statuses Sunday morning. Joseph is a solid IDP option when healthy. Roby hasn't been. The matchup will be positive for Houston passing-game pieces regardless of whether Joseph and/or Roby plays.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury labeled RB David Johnson (ankle) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Giants. Johnson got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday -- but Kingsbury admitted that he wouldn't have been able to play if the game was on Friday. We'll see how much progress D.J. makes over the next couple of days and should get an update on his status Sunday morning. Cardinals-Giants kicks off at 1 pm ET. If Johnson ends up sitting, Chase Edmonds will step in as Arizona's feature back and become a strong fantasy play.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday. It looks like Wednesday was just a rest day. We'll get another update tomorrow, but D.J. should be fine for this weekend's game vs. the Giants.

Cardinals RB David Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with an ankle. It was a back issue that limited D.J. in practice last week. This could just be a rest day for Johnson, and we'll find out more tomorrow. But RB Chase Edmonds should be stashed in pretty much all fantasy leagues.

Cowboys Randall Cobb (hip, back) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. His absence opens up a few extra looks for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. The back issue obviously adds risk to his Week 6 outlook. Arizona might scale back his volume a bit, and there’s a chance the back locks up on him again. But D.J. retains RB1 upside in this plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to play against the Falcons today -- "barring a setback" -- despite the back injury that rendered him questionable. An active Johnson belongs in fantasy lineups against the defense that allowed 53 points to the Texans a week ago. Chase Edmonds can still be a deeper PPR option, but last week marked the 1st time this season he collected more than 6 touches.

Cowboys Randall Cobb (hip, back) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. After putting in a full workout on Wednesday, he didn’t practice at all on Thursday or Friday. Cobb is averaging 5.4 targets per game, so his absence would open up a few extra looks for Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten.

Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He's passed through the protocol and will play against the 49ers on Sunday. Consider Cooks a WR2 with upside for that one.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Falcons. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. Johnson told reporters that he felt good in Friday’s practice but will be a game-time decision. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, meanwhile, hears that D.J. is “likely” to play. Cardinals-Falcons doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET, but we’ll look for an update on Johnson Sunday morning. Chase Edmonds will operate as Arizona’s feature back if Johnson doesn’t play.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said in a Friday morning radio appearance that there's "a chance" RB David Johnson (back) plays against the Falcons this weekend. "I'm not 100 percent sure, but I'm certainly encouraged," Keim said. Johnson didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday and seems legitimately questionable for Sunday's game. We'll get another update on his status this afternoon.

Rams HC Sean McVay said WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) was "feeling good" after practicing on Wednesday. He's reportedly no longer experiencing concussion symptoms. While he hasn't cleared the protocol yet, it sounds like Cooks has a good shot to play against the 49ers this weekend.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) missed practice again on Thursday. As HC Kliff Kingsbury told us, Johnson is in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Falcons. His absence would leave Chase Edmonds as a strong fantasy play as Arizona's lead back in a plus matchup.

Cardinals RB David Johnson (back) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to play through the issue last week but supposedly isn't a lock for Sunday's game against the Falcons. We'll get another D.J. update on Thursday afternoon.

Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That means he's made some progress through the protocol. Cooks still has multiple stages to pass through but has a shot to get cleared for Sunday's showdown with the 49ers.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury refused to guarantee that RB David Johnson (back) will be available for this weekend's game against the Falcons. Johnson battled through back tightness in yesterday's win over the Bengals and will be monitored throughout this week, Kingsbury said. We'll obviously be keeping a close eye on this, but RB Chase Edmonds needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues in the meantime. He'd be a strong Week 6 fantasy play if Johnson is out.

Cardinals RB David Johnson said his back locked up on him during the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Bengals. “It’s good. I just need to get a good rest day tomorrow,” he added. Johnson was able to play through the issue, racking up 156 total yards. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but he should be fine for Sunday's plus matchup against the Falcons.

Rams WR Brandin Cooks left in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Seahawks to get checked for a concussion and didn't return. We haven't yet seen confirmation that Cooks was concussed, but it looked like he was briefly knocked out on the field. We'll look for updates on his status. Cooks has 10 days to get cleared for Week 5's meeting with the 49ers. His absence would elevate WR Josh Reynolds to #3 on the depth chart.

Steelers WR Donte Moncrief will be a healthy scratch for this afternoon's game against the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Moncrief has been abysmal through 2 weeks, and Pittsburgh is moving forward with James Washington and Diontae Johnson as the #2 and #3 WRs behind JuJu Smith-Schuster.

The Browns have placed LB Christian Kirksey on IR with his chest injury. Kirksey is reportedly still getting opinions on how to treat the injury, which is believed to be a torn pectoral muscle
