Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is active for tonight's game vs. the Falcons. He's not a fantasy option but does put a small dent in TE Hunter Henry's profile.

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. He's not a fantasy option, but his absence would be a boost for TE Hunter Henry.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (concussion) is not listed on the final injury report. He's been cleared to return for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. RB Rhamondre Stevenson went off in Harris' absence last week, making this a tough backfield to project for Week 11. Our best guess is that Harris returns to a lead role but cedes more work to Stevenson than he had been. RB Brandon Bolden will continue mixing in on passing downs.

Patriots RB Damien Harris returned to a limited practice on Tuesday -- his first since sustaining a concussion in Week 9. It gives him a shot to be cleared for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. We'll get another update on Harris tomorrow.

Patriots RB Damien Harris was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report. New England didn't actually practice, but the fact that Harris would have been sidelined if they had means he still has multiple stages of the concussion protocol to pass through. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow ahead of Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons.

Patriots LB Ja'Whaun Bentley (ribs), LB Dont'a Hightower (ankle), LB Kyle Van Noy (groin) and DB Jalen Mills (thigh) are active for today's game against the Browns. They arrived questionable but have played through questionable tags for weeks.

11:33am EST 11/14/21

Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is inactive for today's game vs. the Browns. Hopefully you weren't planning on using him. Smith's absence could mean an extra target or 2 for TE Hunter Henry.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. J.J. Taylor is also active, joining Stevenson and Brandon Bolden in the backfield. We’re expecting all 3 to be involved today, with Stevenson the best bet for carries and Bolden likely to lead in targets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) is expected to play vs. the Browns today. The rookie missed all 3 practices this week, which might impact his role in the game plan today. But we'd still consider him the favorite to lead New England in carries. RB Brandon Bolden might still take on a bigger ball-carrying role and should handle most of the pass-catching work.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) has a "real shot" to play vs. the Browns today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like Stevenson will try to get medical clearance this morning. We'll get New England's inactives around 11:30 am ET. With RB Damien Harris (concussion) out, an active Stevenson would be the favorite to lead the Patriots in carries today.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (concussion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) is still listed as questionable and evidently has a shot to be cleared by tomorrow. We'll keep you updated on his status.

The Patriots list RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Browns with their concussions. Neither guy practiced at all this week, so we’d be surprised if they were cleared by Sunday. Their absences would leave New England’s backfield to Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor. Bolden would be the preferred fantasy play as a borderline RB2 in that case.

Patriots RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson missed practice again on Thursday with their concussions. Both guys now look unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. Their absences would leave New England's backfield to Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor.

Patriots RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson missed Wednesday's practice with their concussions. They both have a long way to go to get cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor are New England's healthy RBs right now.

The Boston Herald's Karen Guregian confirms that Patriots RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson are in the concussion protocol. That makes them both iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. Their absences would leave New England's backfield to Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor. We'll keep you updated on Harris and Stevenson's statuses.

Patriots RB Damien Harris exited in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Panthers with a head injury. We haven't heard whether he's been diagnosed with a concussion. We should learn more about Harris' status on Monday.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson was knocked out in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Panthers with a head injury. He had a productive outing before exiting, carrying 10 times for 62 yards and caught both of his targets for 44 yards. We'll look for an update on his status on Monday.

These notable Patriots defenders who entered the weekend questionable are active for today's game against the Panthers: DT Christian Barmore (foot), DB Kyle Dugger (neck), Ja'Whaun Bentley (ribs), Dont'a Hightower (ankle), Kyle Van Noy (groin).

3:48pm EDT 11/5/21

The Dolphins placed WR DeVante Parker on IR after he suffered a setback with his hamstring injury in practice this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games vs. the Texans, Ravens and Jets. We'll see if Parker is ready come Week 12, but he's certainly not a must-stash on fantasy rosters. WR Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki both get target boosts with Parker out.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker had a setback in practice this week and will be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Texans, HC Brian Flores said. It's unclear if Parker's setback was to his shoulder or hamstring. He's seen nice volume when on the field this season but hasn't been able to stay healthy. Parker's absence on Sunday boosts the volume projections for WR Jaylen Waddle and TE Mike Gesicki.
