Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Both guys entered Week 9 questionable as well. McDougald left the game early and then missed Wednesday and Thursday practices. He returned for a limited workout Friday but makes for a high-risk IDP option in a negative matchup for DB scoring. Wright saw normal playing time in Week 9. He missed Thursday's practice between limited workouts Wednesday and Friday. We'll check the status on both Sunday afternoon.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. He didn't practice all week, but HC Pete Carroll suggested Friday that Carson will be a game-time decision. We’ll look for another update on Sunday morning, but we might not find out his official status until 3 pm ET. Mike Davis will serve as Seattle’s lead back if Carson can’t play.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) didn't practice on Wednesday. Don't expect him to practice much, if at all, this week after aggravating that hip issue on Sunday. The best-case scenario probably has him as a game-time decision for this weekend's tilt with the Rams. Mike Davis will serve as Seattle's lead back if Carson can't go.

The Falcons have signed DE Bruce Irvin to a 1-year deal. The Steelers and Patriots also reportedly made offers to the former Raider, with other teams also expressing interest. Atlanta sports the league's 5th-worst sack rate, and the city is Irvin's hometown. The Falcons reportedly plan to get Irvin on the field right away for this weekend's matchup with the Browns, so we should soon see how big a role he can claim. It'd be tough to start Irvin in IDP lineups right away -- despite the positive matchup -- but he has a shot to gain relevance through the 2nd half of the year. The interest level he generated on the open market suggests Oakland mishandled the veteran by cutting his playing time this year and then dumping him.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll described RB Chris Carson as "sore" after Sunday's loss to the Chargers. “I talked to Chris and it was about like it was last week,” Carroll said of Carson's troublesome hip. “He’s sore, but he was sore last week and he made it through. We’ll have to wait and see and just go day to day with him. We’ll take care of him earlier in the week and see how he rounds out later in the week.” It sounds like Carson didn't suffer any new structural damage and has a shot to play against the Rams on Sunday. We'll monitor his status throughout the week. Mike Davis will serve as Seattle's lead back if Carson is sidelined.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson aggravated his hip injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Chargers and is doubtful to return. He carried 8 times for 40 yards before exiting. Mike Davis will operate as Seattle's lead back the rest of the way.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are active for today’s game against the Chargers. Each entered the day questionable but looks OK for normal IDP usage

2:11pm EST 11/4/18

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is active for today’s game against the Chargers. He was reportedly a game-time decision for this one, so he obviously won’t be anywhere close to 100%. Consider Carson a risk/reward RB2.

11:11am EST 11/4/18

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. He put in a full practice on Friday, and we never heard any concern about his status. Collins is a low-end RB2 in this tough matchup.

Ravens RB Alex Collins is expected to play through his questionable tag against the Steelers today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Collins missed Thursday's practice with foot soreness but returned to full participation Friday. He should be OK for planned usage in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks RB Chris Carson is a game-time decision for today's clash with the Chargers. The team reportedly needs to test his injured hip before the game to see whether he's ready to go. If Carson sits, Mike Davis becomes a viable fantasy starter. The 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff means that some fantasy owners might need to look in a different direction for their Week 9 lineups.

UPDATE: Ian Rapoport says the Seahawks are "optimistic" that Carson plays. So keep that in mind as you decide between waiting for Carson and playing an earlier option.

The Raiders have waived DE Bruce Irvin, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic. The nearly $4 million left on Irvin's contract might keep him from getting claimed, though interested teams with cap space could foot that bill now that they wouldn't have to surrender any draft capital in trade. Either way, expect the 31-year-old pass-rusher to get another shot somewhere this season. Whether he'll have a shot at IDP relevance will depend on the landing spot.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and OLB K.J. Wright (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, and neither's situation looks particularly encouraging. McDougald missed practiced Wednesday, returned to a limited workout Thursday but then sat out again Friday. Wright sat Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday workout. We'll check their statuses Sunday afternoon. If your deciding between either and an early-game option, though, go with the earlier.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chargers. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and limited again in Friday’s practice. “A little groin thing he's feeling,” HC Pete Carroll said Friday. “Just got to make sure on gameday he's feeling okay.” The 4:05 pm ET kickoff here makes this a tricky situation. We’ll look for an update on Carson’s status Sunday morning. If he can’t go, Mike Davis would be a better fantasy bet than Rashaad Penny.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Steelers. After sitting out on Thursday, he put in a full practice on Friday. So Collins should play on Sunday. But the foot injury adds risk to what was already a tough matchup.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) was held out of Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. He went through this routine back in Week 5 before playing on Sunday, so it's possible this was just a rest day. We'll get another update tomorrow. Baltimore would be left with Buck Allen, Gus Edwards and the newly acquired Ty Montgomery if Collins can't go.

Seahawks LB K.J. Wright practiced all week and is set to play Sunday. We’d expect him to start, though it’s tough to say whether Wright will be ready for a full snap share. He has been out since late August knee surgery. Wright’s in play for deep IDP leagues but not a strong Week 8 option in most cases

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He figures to return as Seattle’s lead back, but HC Pete Carroll said earlier this week that RB Mike Davis has earned a role going forward. That makes Carson just a RB3 or flex play vs. the Rams.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (knee) will play against the Browns this weekend, HC John Harbaugh said Friday. Collins sat out Thursday’s practice as a precaution but was a full-go Friday. He’s a low-end RB2 vs. a solid Cleveland defense.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) put in a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session. HC Pete Carroll expects Carson to play this weekend, and he's now trending in the right direction. We'll get another update on Carson tomorrow.
