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.

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.

Jets slot CB Buster Skrine left Thursday night's loss to the Browns in the 1st half with a knee injury and did not return. The New York Post reports that he said afterward he'll be fine. The long week of rest should help his chances of playing in Week 4. Skrine's a marginal IDP prospect but led or tied for the team lead in tackles each of the 1st 2 weeks.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins and is questionable to return. He had been working in a 3-way committee with Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines. We'll update Wilkins' status when we learn more.

UPDATE: Wilkins returned in the 2nd half.

ESPN's Mike Wells considers Colts RB Jordan Wilkins the "front-runner" to start Week 1 if RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) isn't ready. Mack has yet to return to practice and seems unlikely to play against the Bengals on Sunday. That'd leave the backfield to Wilkins, Christine Michael and Nyheim Hines. All 3 guys figure to be involved, but it sounds like Wilkins is the favorite to lead the way in touches. It's a situation to avoid in Week 1 if possible, but Wilkins certainly deserves to be rostered in most fantasy leagues.

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.

Colts RBs Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines worked with the 1st-team offense in Saturday night's preseason game against the 49ers. Neither guy was impressive, though. Wilkins carried 4 times for 0 yards and caught 1 pass for 4 yards with QB Andrew Luck and the starters. Hines mustered 3 yards on 3 carries with the 1st-team offense. RB Christine Michael also saw time with the starters and finished with 2 yards on 5 carries. The winner here looks to be Marlon Mack, who remains the favorite for lead RB duties if he can get past his hamstring issue.

Colts HC Frank Reich talked up rookie RB Jordan Wilkins after practice on Wednesday. “Jordan is one of those guys we are talking about with a real toughness,” Reich said. “I just feel like this guy loves football and he loves the physicality. He has no fear in his game. I think he’s making a very good impression. I’m very happy with the progress that he’s making. He’s showing the ability to play on all 3 downs. He’s better out of the backfield, as a receiver, than I thought he would be. Pass protection, he knows his stuff. He’s making good progress.” Wilkins’ all-around skill set has a real chance to be utilized early in the regular season. He’s on the radar as a late-round flier.

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.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper has spent "a lot of 1-on-1 time" with QB Matt Ryan this offseason, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. Hooper turned in a promising 2nd season, hauling in 49 of 65 targets (75.4% catch rate) for 526 yards and 3 scores. He's capable of making another leap in 2018. The question is whether there are enough targets to turn Hooper into a TE1. He ranked just 17th among TEs in targets last year and now has to contend with 1st-round rookie WR Calvin Ridley joining Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu.

The Colts picked Ole Miss RB Jordan Wilkins in Round 6 of the Draft, 2 rounds after they selected RB Nyheim Hines. Wilkins stands bigger at 6'1 and 216 pounds. He posted a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, a 72nd-percentile SPARQ score and a 102.6 speed score. Wilkins totaled only 130 touches over his 1st 2 seasons and spent 2016 on academic suspension. But he tallied a 155-1,011-9 rushing line with 26 catches for 241 more yards as a senior. Wilkins averaged 6.3 yards per rush and 10.1 per reception across his college career. He'll be worth watching in what should be a wide-open backfield competition.

The Titans traded up to select OLB Harold Landry in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Landry struggled through an injury-shortened final season at Boston College but racked up 16.5 sacks as a junior and 38 total tackles for loss over his sophomore and junior seasons. He'll need to transition to primarily playing with his hand off the ground in Tennessee but presents terrific athleticism and strong pass-rushing moves. He'd sport more IDP upside as a DE than a LB, but there's potential here in pressure-friendly scoring systems.

The Titans have named Mike Vrabel their new HC. The former LB is just 8 years removed from the end of his playing career. He's spent the past 7 in the coaching ranks, most recently serving as the Texans' DC this past season. We'll see who Vrabel hires to run his offense.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) is expected to be ready for spring workouts, according to insider Armando Salguero. Tannehill finally had surgery to repair his ACL in August after partially tearing it the previous December. He'll be about 9 months removed from surgery when minicamp opens this spring. Barring setbacks, Tannehill will be under center for Miami come Week 1. He's signed with the Fins through the 2020 campaign.

Rams WRs Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods are active but were not listed as starters for today's finale against the 49ers. Neither guy is likely to play. The team announced WR Josh Reynolds and Pharoh Cooper as the starters.

Browns CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Bears. That's good news for Chicago slot WR Kendall Wright. According to Pro Football Focus, Boddy-Calhoun sits tied for 17th among all corners in coverage grade on the season and has allowed just 48% completions.

Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. It looks like Woods is ready to play his usual role against the Seahawks this weekend. He was sitting 14th among WRs in PPR points through Week 11.

Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's expected to play against the Seahawks this weekend, but it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout on Thursday or Friday. Woods has been sidelined since Week 11.

Rams HC Sean McVay confirmed on Monday that WR Robert Woods (shoulder) is "on track" to play against the Seahawks this weekend. Week 15 has been the target for Woods, and he returned to a limited practice this past Friday. There's always some risk with guys coming off multi-week absences, but Woods will be worth WR3 consideration vs. a banged-up Seattle secondary.

3:12pm EST 12/10/17

Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. He returned to practice on Friday, putting him on track to play next weekend. Cooper Kupp, Sammy Watkins and Josh Reynolds will serve as the Rams’ top 3 WRs again today.
