The Steelers have activated OLB Bud Dupree from the PUP list. A groin injury cost him the 1st 9 games, but the 2nd-year pass rusher is on the active roster for Sunday's trip to Cleveland. We'll see what kind of role he's coming back to, though he'll likely work into a rotation. Dupree carries more pass-rushing upside than any other OLB on Pittsburgh's roster but is more of a long-term IDP option than a strong candidate for 2016 value.

After sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday, Titans RB Derrick Henry (calf) put in a full practice on Friday. “I am ready," he said afterward. “It felt good." The rookie will play against the Packers this weekend but doesn't figure to see more than a handful of touches behind DeMarco Murray.

Titans RB Derrick Henry has been diagnosed with a strained calf, HC Mike Mularkey announced Monday. “That is kind of an injury where a lot of it is pain tolerance," Mularkey added. "It could be a day, it could be up to a couple of weeks." We’ll keep an eye on Henry throughout the week, but he shouldn't be in your Week 10 fantasy plans. Antonio Andrews will serve as Tennessee's #2 RB if Henry misses more time.

Titans RB Derrick Henry injured his calf in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Chargers. He's questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey told The Tennessean that he wants to get RB Derrick Henry "more involved" on offense, though he says it'll depend on game flow. Henry carried a season-high 16 times in last Thursday's dominating win over Jacksonville, when DeMarco Murray spent the 2nd half dealing with a toe injury. Murray was limited Wednesday, but the fact that he's participating -- and played at all in the 2nd half of last week's blowout -- suggests Murray will be healthy enough for a normal workload Sunday. San Diego, however, might present a good matchup for a run-heavy approach. The Chargers lost ILBs Jatavis Brown and Denzel Perryman to injury at Denver last week. They're down to rookie Joshua Perry and Korey Toomer, who began the year on Oakland's practice squad, at the position. Henry presents some deep upside for fantasy owners dealing with the second 6-team bye. He's also a good stash in general and would likely become a weekly starter if Murray went down.

Falcons WR Julio Jones is not listed on the team's final injury report. He suffered what he called a "bone bruise" on his knee last week but practiced all this week, including a full workout on Friday. Jones should stay locked in fantasy lineups for Thursday night's plus matchup against Tampa Bay's 28th-ranked WR defense.

Falcons WR Julio Jones told reporters Tuesday that he's dealing with a "knee bruise." It's a relatively minor injury, but one that seemed to impact him in last week's win over the Packers. Jones went catch-less on 1 target in the 2nd half. You're not benching him against the Bucs on Thursday night, but the knee issue makes him a bit riskier than usual.

Falcons WR Julio Jones is "good to go" for Thursday night's game against the Bucs, HC Dan Quinn said. Quinn added that Jones got his knee examined after Sunday's win over the Packers. He certainly didn't look "good to go" in the 2nd half of that one, going catch-less in the 2nd half. An active Jones can't be benched in season-long leagues, but he'll be riskier than usual in Week 9.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Saints. He isn't at 100%, but his status for this one was never in doubt. Jones is a high-upside WR1 in the pristine matchup.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Saints. He only got in 1 limited practice on Saturday but told reporters afterward that he'll play. Despite the late kickoff, Jones is safe to keep in fantasy lineups.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Friday. We still haven't heard any concern that he'll miss Monday night's game against the Saints, but he's obviously not at 100%. We'll get another update after Atlanta's final practice of the week tomorrow.

Falcons WR Julio Jones suffered a calf strain in Sunday's win over the Raiders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The injury isn't believed to be serious, and Jones should be fine for next Monday night's dream matchup against the Saints. But the issues are already piling up for him just 2 games into the season. Atlanta's bye doesn't come until Week 11.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He put in a full practice on Friday and was removed from the final injury report, so that ankle shouldn’t be much of an issue. Mohamed Sanu (ankle) is also active and is in the WR3 discussion.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) were both full participants in Friday's practice and removed from the team's final injury report. They're good to go for this weekend's game against a Raiders secondary that just allowed 423 yards and 4 TDs. Jones is a high-end WR1, as usual, and Sanu is in the WR3 mix.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited again in Thursday's practice. It's not a major concern -- Jones is still fully expected to play this weekend -- but it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout on Friday. WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was also limited for the 2nd straight practice on Thursday.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. He battled through the ankle issue last week and should be fine for Sunday's game against the Raiders. We'd feel better about paying up for him in DFS if he gets in a full practice on Thursday or Friday.

Falcons WR Julio Jones appeared to tweak the ankle that had him on the Week 1 injury report during Sunday's opener against the Bucs. He didn't miss many snaps, though, and finished with a 4-66-1 line. He said afterward that he's "not worried" about the issue. We'll keep an eye on him this coming week, but Jones should be fine for next Sunday's meeting with the Raiders.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is "comfortable" in HC Adam Gase's offense, he told reporters on Monday. "I feel in charge of our offense now, in command of what we're doing out there," Tannehill added. "I feel like I have a good handle on what we're trying to accomplish and what we're doing. It's fun. It's fun to get out there and get up to the line, get our guys in the right spots and keep the pressure on the defense." This is Tannehill's 3rd different offense over the past 5 years. But Gase is known for adjusting his system to the personnel. Tannehill certainly looked comfy in Miami's 3rd preseason game, completing 20 of 29 passes (69%) for 155 yards in 1 half of action. He has a tough start to the season with games in Seattle and New England but should emerge as a spot-start option after that.

Falcons WR Julio Jones injured his ankle in Thursday night's preseason game against Miami. He limped off the field under his own power and didn't seem to get much trainer attention on the sideline. Jones never returned, but that's not a surprise in an exhibition. This didn't have the look of a serious injury, but we'll keep an eye on Jones' status.

Update: NBC's Michelle Tafoya confirmed at halftime that Jones would have returned if this was a regular season game. His fantasy stock is unaffected.

The Giants on Monday signed K Randy Bullock to at least serve as the Week 1 replacement for Josh Brown. The league suspended Brown 1 game over domestic violence chargers. The "at least" is significant here because we've seen the NFL stiffen domestic-violence discipline in the past after receiving more information. The suspension stemmed from a May 2015 arrest for 4th-degree assault, but more alarming allegations have surfaced recently. We'll see if turns into any further discipline.
