Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs. He put in a full practice on Friday, though, so we’re expecting him to play. Over the past 4 weeks, Lindsay has 37 carries and 4 targets compared to Melvin Gordon’s 44 carries and 3 targets.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (knee) will return to a limited practice on Thursday, HC Vic Fangio said. That gives Lindsay a shot to play against the Chiefs on Sunday night. We'll see what he does in tomorrow's practice and how Denver lists him on the final injury report.

Texans RB David Johnson (concussion) has been designated to return from IR. He's eligible to play against the Colts this weekend, although it's still unclear if he's passed through the concussion protocol. We'll continue to monitor the situation. If Johnson is cleared, he should step back in as Houston's lead back.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay missed Wednesday's practice with the knee injury that knocked him out of last weekend's loss to the Saints. He's looking iffy for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. Lindsay's absence would make RB Melvin Gordon a much stronger fantasy play. Gordon has averaged 16.7 carries and 4 targets in 3 games without Lindsay this season.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Saints with a knee injury. He was playing a big role in Denver's JV-level offense before exiting, carrying 9 times for 20 yards. We'll look for an update on the severity of the knee injury.

Texans WRs Randall Cobb (toe) and Kenny Stills (quad) are out for Thursday's game against the Lions. That elevates WR Keke Coutee to #3 on the depth chart and makes him an intriguing DFS flier on the 3-game Thanksgiving slate. TE Jordan Akins could also see a volume boost.

Update: Cobb has been placed on IR, so he'll miss at least 2 more games beyond Thanksgiving.

Texans WR Randall Cobb suffered a toe injury "considered significant" in Sunday's win over the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's set to undergo additional testing but "is set to miss games," Rapoport adds. Houston also lost WR Kenny Stills to a leg injury yesterday. That left Keke Coutee as the #3 WR.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. We like Baltimore’s running game to have a big one vs. a New England squad sitting 31st in Football Outsiders’ run defense DVOA, but it’s completely unclear how the RB touches will be divvied after Ingram missed the the past 2 games.

The forecast for today's Texans-Browns game calls for sustained winds of 25 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. We saw similar conditions for the Raiders-Browns game a couple of weeks ago. That one ended up producing just 22 points and 333 total passing yards. We've downgraded our passing projections for both teams in this one and would stay away from both kickers.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is expected to play against the Patriots tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ingram led the Ravens in carries through 6 healthy weeks, but it's unclear what this backfield will look like now. Ingram, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are all risk/reward RB3s vs. a bad New England run defense.

The Packers have activated LB Christian Kirksey. He has been out since Week 3 with a right shoulder injury. Green Bay has had no one settle in as a regular with starter-level playing time at ILB since Kirksey went down. We're treating him as a starter right away for his 1st game back Sunday against Jacksonville. Check out where Kirksey lands in our Week 10 IDP rankings.

The Texans have placed RB David Johnson on IR for the concussion had already knocked him out for Week 10. That's a worrisome development for what is more typically a 1-game issue. Johnson will miss at least the next 3 games, leaving Duke Johnson to operate as the lead back for at least matchups with Cleveland, New England and Detroit. That's 3 favorable spots for a guy who has performed efficiently throughout his career, amid limited rushing work. Houston has also elevated RB C.J. Prosise from the practice squad.

Texans RB David Johnson (concussion) didn’t practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. That should leave RB Duke Johnson in a feature role — and a borderline RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Patriots. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and then a full-go on Friday. Ingram seems likely to play vs. New England, turning this backfield back into a frustrating 3-man committee.

Texans RB David Johnson (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's now a long shot to get cleared for this weekend's game against the Browns. Look for Duke Johnson to handle close to 100% of Houston's RB touches in that one.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. That follows a limited workout on Wednesday. Ingram either got the day off or suffered a setback. Check back tomorrow for another update. His absence would make RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards much easier to trust vs. a bad Patriots run defense on Sunday night.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. HC John Harbaugh said earlier in the day that Ingram has a shot to return for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Asked Wednesday whether RB Mark Ingram is getting close to returning and could be an option against the Patriots on Sunday night, Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters: "Yes and yes." Get ready for the Baltimore backfield committee to be back in full session and frustrating fantasy owners. We'll watch the situation over the next few days.

Texans RB David Johnson exited in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars to get checked for a concussion. We'll update his status when we learn more. Duke Johnson will step in as Houston's lead back for however long David is out.

Update: Johnson has a concussion and is done for the day. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week, but Duke Johnson should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards figure to split backfield duties again.
