Giants S Jabrill Peppers left Sunday's loss to the 49ers with an ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it's believed to be a low-ankle sprain. Peppers is likely headed for further evaluation Monday, so we'll see about his outlook for Week 4 and beyond. Julian Love filled in for Peppers, logging a team-high 11 tackles. He'd in play for IDP lineups vs. the Rams on Sunday if Peppers misses further time.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He was limited in practice all week and admitted on Friday that he’s still not at 100%. There’s elevated risk here — but also plenty of upside in a likely shootout.

Bengals WR John Ross is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Eagles. Rookie Tee Higgins has taken over as Cincinnati's #3 WR. We'd love to see the Bengals trade Ross and give him a shot elsewhere.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is set to play against the Cardinals this afternoon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Golladay was limited in practice all week and admitted on Friday that he's still not at 100%. That adds risk to his Week 3 outlook. But there's also plenty of upside here in a likely shootout in Arizona.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals after a limited week of practice. “Definitely feeling a lot better. Wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, I really wouldn’t even put a percentage on it. I just know I’m not 100 percent,” Golladay admitted on Friday. “I’m going to do everything I can and hopefully I showed enough (in practice this week) that I can be out there.” Lions-Cardinals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday, but hopefully we’ll get an update on his status in the morning. If active, consider Golladay a risk/reward WR3.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's on track to play against the Cardinals this weekend -- although it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout tomorrow.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's his 1st practice of any kind since going down prior to Week 1. Golladay has a shot to return for Sunday's game against the Lions -- although we'd feel better about getting him in fantasy lineups if he gets in a full practice on Thursday and/or Friday.

The Giants have placed WR Sterling Shepard on IR. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games with his turf toe. That's an injury that tends to linger, so we'll see exactly when Shepard is able to get back on the field. His absence will mean more targets for WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate and TE Evan Engram.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard came away from Sunday's loss to the Bears with turf toe. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he's expected to miss at least this week's clash with the 49ers. Shepard's return timeline beyond that is not yet clear.

Monday morning testing confirmed the Giants' fears. RB Saquon Barkley will have surgery soon to repair his torn right ACL. Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman climb the pecking order with Barkley down. The Giants will reportedly have RB Devonta Freeman in for a visit as well -- and figure to sign someone even if Freeman doesn't fit.

The Giants fear RB Saquon Barkley tore his right ACL against the Bears, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. There will reportedly be further testing Monday to "make a full and complete determination." RB Dion Lewis scored a 1-yard rushing TD after Barkley's departure and should be the next guy up. But RB Wayne Gallman would likely be significantly involved as well.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffered a toe injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He hobbled off to the locker room and is officially questionable to return.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley suffered what appeared to be a right knee injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears. He immediately grasped at the knee in pain and had to be carried off. This obviously doesn't look good. We'll update Barkley's status when we learn more. Barkley's absence leaves the G-Men with Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman.

Update: Barkley has been ruled out.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay is "really close" to returning from his hamstring injury, HC Matt Patricia told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero on Saturday. Golladay will miss his 2nd straight game today and didn't practice at all this week. But it sounds like the Lions have been playing it extra safe with that hammy. We'll track his practice participation this coming week. Marvin Jones, Quintez Cephus and Danny Amendola figure to serve as Detroit's top 3 WRs vs. the Packers today.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He didn't practice all week, so consider his Week 3 status uncertain. With Golladay out last week, rookie Quintez Cephus stepped in as Detroit's #2 WR, playing 79% of the offensive snaps and drawing 10 targets. We still don't fully trust him in fantasy lineups, but you could do worse if you're looking for a Golladay replacement.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay missed practice for the 2nd straight day because of his injured hamstring. It's not looking likely that the wideout will be ready to return for Sunday's game at Green Bay. We'll see about his Friday participation. Quintez Cephus played 79% of the snaps against the Bears and saw 10 targets in Golladay's absence. But the 5th-round rookie's mere 3 catches for 43 yards among those 10 targets keeps him from being anything more than a cheap DFS flier.

Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports that Lions WR Kenny Golladay had a helmet on at Wednesday's practice but remained on the sideline not participating. We'll keep on eye on the status of the wideout's hamstring as we move through the week.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay is inactive for today’s opener against the Bears. We’ll see if he’s able to return for Week 2 after injuring his hamstring in Wednesday’s practice. Golladay’s absence today leaves WR Marvin Jones, WR Danny Amendola and TE T.J. Hockenson as the top targets for QB Matt Stafford.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s opener against the Bears after injuring his hamstring in Wednesday’s practice. Fantasy owners should obviously have him on Week 1 benches — and hope he’s able to return for Week 2. Golladay is a big loss for QB Matt Stafford and frees up extra targets for Marvin Jones, T.J. Hockenson and Danny Amendola.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay didn't practice on Thursday after suffering a hamstring injury on Wednesday. HC Matt Patricia said earlier today that he expected Golladay to be able to put in a limited workout. We'll see what he's able to do tomorrow, but fantasy owners should start lining up an alternative.
