Packers ILB Blake Martinez put in a limited practice Wednesday. That's noteworthy because it followed a Sunday night ankle injury that earned Martinez a cart ride to the locker room. He said earlier this week that he still hoped to play in Week 10. The fact that he took part at all Wednesday is encouraging.

Packers ILB Blake Martinez hurt his left ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game against the Patriots. He landed on Tom Brady's foot and rolled the ankle while blitzing the New England QB. Martinez hobbled off under his own power but went to the locker room on a cart after being checked out on the sideline. We'll see how this situation unfolds.

The Giants have traded DT Damon Harrison to the Lions a day after trading CB Eli Apple to the Saints. Harrison should improve the Detroit run defense and could see a tackle increase back with a defense that works from a 4-3 base. We’ll see how quickly he can claim a starting role. Apple should soon make his way into New Orleans’ top 3 at CB but doesn’t alter the outlook for the team D.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Bengals WR John Ross is expected to miss "a few weeks" with his groin injury. It's an aggravation of the issue that cost him 2 games earlier this season. Tampa gets the Bengals this Sunday before a Week 9 bye, so it's possible Ross only misses 1 game. But he can be dropped from most redraft rosters.

Bengals WR John Ross exited Sunday night's game in Kansas City with a groin injury. He had missed the previous 2 games with a groin issue. We'll see how much time this costs him, but Ross isn't worth rostering in redraft leagues.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for what should be a high-scoring affair against the Falcons on Monday night. Engram sits inside TE1 territory in the Week 7 Rankings.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He can’t be trusted in Week 7 fantasy lineups, but his return is good news for QB Andy Dalton, who’s already in a good spot against a leaky Chiefs defense.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He was seemingly close to playing last week and is now on track to return for Monday night's game against the Falcons. A healthy Engram remains an easy TE1.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Steelers. A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd will continue to dominate targets.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. He shouldn’t be in Week 6 fantasy lineups, but his return would be good news for QB Andy Dalton.

Giants TE Rhett Ellison (foot) is inactive for tonight's game against the Eagles. TE Evan Engram (knee) is also out. That leaves Scott Simonson as New York's lead TE. He's obviously not a fantasy option. Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley will dominate targets for the G-Men.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. He returned to practice this week, putting him on track to return for Week 7. Rhett Ellison gets another game as New York's lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) put in a limited practice on Tuesday. It looks like he has a shot to return for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. We should have a better idea of his status after tomorrow's practice.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) "has a shot" to play against the Eagles on Thursday night, HC Pat Shurmur said Monday. Engram will be 2-and-a-half weeks removed at that point from an injury that was expected to sideline him 2-4 weeks. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation over the next couple of days.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Josh Malone will step in as Cincinnati's #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option. A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon figure to dominate targets.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) is not listed on the final injury report. He had a procedure early in the week to remove a cyst from his back but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Shepard is a low-end fantasy play vs. Carolina’s 10th-ranked WR defense.

Bengals WR John Ross (groin) was held out of Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of playing against the Dolphins this weekend. Ross' absence would leave Josh Malone as Cincinnati's #3 WR -- and push more targets toward A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) returned to a full practice on Thursday. He'll play against the Panthers' 10th-ranked WR defense this weekend. Shepard is a low-end WR3 in that matchup.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was held out of Wednesday's practice after having a procedure to remove a cyst from his lower back, HC Pat Shurmur said. Shurmur added that he expects Shepard back at practice later this week, which presumably means he'll play against the Panthers on Sunday. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is "week-to-week" beyond that, HC Kyle Shanahan said. We don't have any other details on Pettis' exact injury, but it sounds like he's dealing with some type of sprain. The rookie can be dropped in redraft leagues.
