Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (foot) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. We’re expecting him to split carries with RB Melvin Gordon, although Gordon figures to get most of the pass-catching and goal-line work.

The Broncos expect RB Phillip Lindsay (foot) to play Sunday against the Falcons, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lindsay started the week not practicing but progressed to a limited Thursday and then a full Friday before turning up questionable. He has split the rushing load with Melvin Gordon when healthy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Texans CB Bradley Roby will not travel with the team to Jacksonville. Roby had been dealing with a knee issue, but Schefter reports that the decision is not injury or COVID related. So it's not clear why the team is benching basically the only corner that has performed decently for it this season. This helps the matchup for Jaguars WR D.J. Chark, though his biggest challenge figures to be 1st-time starter Jake Luton at QB.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He's expected to play, though, after getting in a full practice on Friday. Lindsay has basically split carries down the middle with RB Melvin Gordon when they've both been healthy this season. But Gordon remains the primary pass-catching and goal-line back, making him the superior fantasy play.

Texans TE Jordan Akins (concussion, ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. It’s unclear how snaps and targets will be divvied between Akins and TE Darren Fells, so try to avoid the situation in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Colts. He won’t play, again leaving the backfield to RBs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. Dobbins garnered 15 carries and 2 targets to Edwards’ 16 carries and 1 target last week.

Texans TE Jordan Akins (ankle, concussion) has put in 2 full practices so far this week. It looks like he's on track to return for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Akins was operating as Houston's clear lead TE before the injuries, but we'll see how snaps and targets are divvied between he and TE Darren Fells now. It's a situation to avoid in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

The Texans are closing their facility on Thursday after a positive COVID test. We'll see who tested positive -- and then if any close contacts also need to quarantine. Sunday's Texans-Jaguars game remains on track to be played for now.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay missed Wednesday's practice and is on the injury report with a foot. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Lindsay "jammed some toes" in last week's win over the Chargers but that there's "optimism" he'll be able to play vs. Atlanta this weekend. It's worth noting that Lindsay missed 3 games with turf toe earlier this year, although it's unclear if this latest issue is related. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Ingram isn't a good bet to play against the Colts this weekend. That'd again leave Baltimore's backfield to J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Chargers. He’s actually out-carried RB Melvin Gordon when they’ve both been healthy this season. Gordon figures to get most of the goal-line and pass-catching work, so he’s still the preferred fantasy play among the 2.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Steelers. That leaves the backfield to Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins. We’re expecting Edwards to lead the committee in carries, with Dobbins handling most of the passing-down work. Both guys are just RB3 or flex plays vs. a stout Pittsburgh defense.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) is expected to be cleared and play against the Chargers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's bad news for RB Melvin Gordon. In their only 2 halves of football together this year, Lindsay has out-carried Gordon 7 to 6 and 9 to 7. Assuming Lindsay is active, downgrade Gordon to low-end RB2 status. Lindsay will be in the RB3 mix.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, so he's made some progress through the protocol but still has work to do. Chargers-Broncos doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, but we should get an update on Lindsay that morning. His status is key for RB Melvin Gordon considering Lindsay has out-carried Gordon in their only 2 halves of football together this season.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Steelers after missing practice all week. So it’ll be Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins in Baltimore’s backfield. We’re expecting Edwards to lead the committee in carries, with Dobbins handling most of the passing-down work. Both guys are just RB3 or flex plays vs. a stout Pittsburgh defense.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to get cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Chargers. We'll get another update on Lindsay tomorrow.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Steelers this weekend. That'd leave Baltimore's backfield to Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through if he's to play against the Chargers this weekend. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.

Ravens RB Mark Ingram (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported last week that he's dealing with "a mid- to high-ankle sprain that isn’t considered severe." Ingram seems no better than 50/50 to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday, though. His absence would turn Baltimore's 3-back committee into a 2-back committee featuring Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs and is done for the day. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week. Lindsay's absence leaves Denver's backfield to Melvin Gordon and Royce Freeman.
