Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Bears. His status beyond this week is uncertain. It’ll be Brock Osweiler under center today vs. 1 of the league’s best defenses. We’d avoid the Dolphins passing game altogether.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's availability for today's game against the Bears is "up in the air." He's dealing with a throwing shoulder injury -- and we've heard whispers that it's an AC joint sprain. Tannehill was a full-go in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but limited Friday. We'll get his official status by noon ET, but he shouldn't be anywhere near fantasy lineups. Miami would be forced to turn to QB Brock Osweiler if Tannehill can't go.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens with the shoulder injury that cost him Week 5 and knocked him out of the previous game early. Woodyard has called himself day to day. We'll see about his status Sunday. His status could also affect the playing time for Jayon Brown. The 2nd-year LB played at least two-thirds of the snaps in every game this season, though, so he's worth a shot in many cases even if Woodyard's active.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bears. He was a full-go on Wednesday and Thursday but limited on Friday. We've heard nothing to suggest that Tannehill is in any danger of missing this game, but we'll keep an eye on his status. Of course, Tannehill is barely a QB2 option in a brutal matchup.

The Titans have ruled LB Wesley Woodyard our for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of last week's game. Jayon Brown played 76 of 78 snaps against the Eagles, tallying 10 tackles and a sack. He's an upside IDP option against the Bills in Week 5.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel told reporters Monday that the team is "hopeful" LB Wesley Woodyard will be able to play against the Bills on Sunday. Woodyard left Week 4 early with a shoulder injury. We'll keep an eye on his status through the practice week.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard left Sunday's win over the Eagles after just 2 snaps with a shoulder injury and did not return. In his absence, Jayon Brown played all but 1 defensive snap after playing 67% to 71% over the previous 3 weeks. He'll be in play for IDP owners if Woodyard remains out for Week 5's trip to Buffalo. Rookie Rashaan Evans also jumped up to a 77% snap share after playing just 18 total snaps through 3 weeks. We'll see what we hear about Woodyard's shoulder this week.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after dislocating his right elbow in Sunday's win over the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tennessee signed Vaccaro as a free agent to step in after starter Johnathan Cyprien landed on IR. We'll see if the team looks outside the roster for help over the next few weeks.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is set to play against the Saints this weekend. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. HC Dan Quinn said Jones ran routes at full speed on Friday. Keep him locked into fantasy lineups.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He told reporters earlier in the day that his absence is precautionary after his calf tightened up during last weekend's win over the Panthers. He's still fully expected to play against the Saints on Sunday, but it'd be nice to see him get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Falcons WR Julio Jones didn't practice Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with a calf issue. Jones seemed fine in last weekend's win over the Panthers, and we've heard nothing to suggest the calf is a real concern. We'll get another update on Jones' status tomorrow.

Titans rookie OLB Harold Landry left Saturday night's game against the Steelers in the 1st quarter with an ankle injury. We'll see about the severity of that for a 2nd-round pick who has seemingly worked his way into Tennessee's edge rotation. Landry saw his final college season ended early by an ankle injury.

Titans rookie ILB Rashaan Evans returned to practice Wednesday. Evans spent more than 3 weeks sidelined for "heat-related" reasons, ESPN's Turron Davenport reports. We don't yet know any further details of the issue. Evans had been splitting snaps with veteran Will Compton before going down. The 1st-round pick figures to get back to that before too long, but the lost time will make it tougher for Evans to take over the spot by himself. We've knocked Evans down the LB rankings. He's a risk/reward pick at the bottom of LB3 range.

Update: Aaaaand Evans left his 1st practice back. “Rashaan wasn’t feeling great after individual, so we’ll give him some more treatment, and we’ll give him some more time,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said, according to TitanInsider.com. “As soon as he’s ready, we’ll get him back out there.”

After visiting with several free-agent safeties, the Titans have reached a deal with former Saints S Kenny Vaccaro, ESPN reports. That comes, of course, after Tennessee lost S Johnathan Cyprien for the season. We'll see if Vaccaro can work his way into the starting lineup alongside S Kevin Byard. Vaccaro's a better fantasy player than real player.

Falcons WR Julio Jones' holdout is over before it even started. The team announced Wednesday night that Jones will report for the start of training camp after agreeing on a revised contract (the terms of which are undisclosed). So we can cross 1 big name off the list of holdouts. Jones remains a strong target at his early-2nd-round ADP.

Falcons WR Julio Jones will not report for the start of training camp as he angles for a new contract. Jones has 3 years remaining on his current deal but is "just" 9th among WRs in average annual salary. He's "comfortable" sitting out all of camp if he doesn't a new contract, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. At this point, though, there's no reason to believe Jones will miss the regular season, so we're not moving him in the WR rankings. We'll continue to track the situation.

The Titans on Sunday placed rookie LB Rashaan Evans on the non-football illness list as they opened training camp for all rookies, QBs and players who finished the offseason program with injuries. We've seen nothing further about Evans' illness, so we'll assume it's not a big deal. He's eligible to come off the list at any point during camp. Tennessee also placed 3rd-year OLB Kevin Dodd on the "reserve -- did not report" list. That follows Dodd unexpectedly sitting out offseason workouts. The former 2nd-round pick has appeared in just 18 games through 2 seasons and tallied only 1 sack. We'll see if his future holds any NFL relevance.

Falcons WR Julio Jones did not report for the start of mandatory minicamp on Monday as he angles for a new contract. Jones has 3 years left on his current deal but is "only" the league's 8th highest paid WR in average annual salary. "We have been in contact with Julio and his representation," GM Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement. "We will not discuss those conversations publicly except to say we feel they have been productive and constructive." We'll see how long this standoff lasts. But for now, we're not adjusting our projections for Jones.

Rams WR Josh Reynolds revealed Monday that he had surgery after the season to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. The injury occurred on a punt return in the 4th quarter of L.A.'s playoff loss to the Saints. He's spent most of the offseason rehabbing but is able to participate in this week's OTAs. "I can’t really press block with all the special teams stuff. Other than that, it’s healed," Reynolds said. "I’ll be about 100 percent (by training camp.)" Reynolds caught just 11 balls as a rookie, buried behind Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins on the depth chart. He'll again be the #4 WR this season, with Brandin Cooks stepping into Watkins' role. Reynolds remains a dynasty "hold" but will need an injury to 1 of the Rams' top 3 WRs to have a shot at 2018 fantasy value.

The Dolphins expect QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) to be able to participate in next week's OTAs with "little or no limitations," according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Tannehill suffered a partially torn ACL back in December 2016 but didn't undergo surgery until last August, forcing him to miss the entire 2017 campaign. Miami flirted with the rookie QBs this offseason, and this feels like a make-or-break year for Tannehill with the Dolphins. He was sitting 20th among QBs in fantasy points when he went down in 2016, his 1st year in HC Adam Gase's offense. There's room for improvement in 2018, although the departure of WR Jarvis Landry won't help. Tannehill should only be drafted as a lower-end QB2.
