Raiders WR Bryan Edwards will miss at least Sunday's game against the Bills with his sprained ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's "considered week-to-week" otherwise so could miss further time. We'll see about Edwards' status on the other side of Week 4. He's not worth clinging to in most redraft leagues, though.

Raiders WR Bryan Edwards suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Vegas was already without WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) in that one. HC Jon Gruden said Monday that he's "concerned" about both guys. We'll need to track their practice participation this week. Hunter Renfrow, Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones are the Raiders' healthy WRs right now.

Bills WR John Brown suffered a calf injury in Sunday's win over the Rams. He finished catch-less on 2 targets. We'll look for an update on the injury tomorrow.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we haven’t heard anything about him being limited today. Waller remains a strong target bet.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we’ve heard nothing about him being limited today. Use Jacobs as you normally would.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) and TE Darren Waller (knee) are expected to play against the Patriots today. Both guys only practiced on Friday, but we never sensed much concern about their statuses. Use Jacobs and Waller as you normally would in Week 3 lineups.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this one. Keep Waller penciled into fantasy lineups for now, and check back on Sunday at noon ET to make sure he’s active.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Patriots. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we haven’t heard any concern about his status. Keep Jacobs penciled into fantasy lineups for now, and check back on Sunday at noon ET to make sure he’s active.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee, hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. He’s been battling the knee since Week 1; the hamstring issue is new. Ruggs’ absence will free up some extra targets for Darren Waller, Bryan Edwards, Hunter Renfrow and Nelson Agholor.

Bills WR John Brown (foot) isn’t listed on the final Week 3 injury report. He was limited on Thursday with some foot soreness but was back to a full-go on Friday. Brown might be busy this weekend with Rams CB Jalen Ramsey expected to shadow WR Stefon Diggs.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) and TE Darren Waller (knee) missed practice again on Thursday. We still haven't heard anything on their supposed injuries and still wonder if Vegas is just taking it easy on their offensive centerpieces on the short week. But Jacobs and Waller's Week 3 statuses can no longer be taken for granted. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. Like with RB Josh Jacobs, we're guessing that this is just a day off for Waller after a busy outing on Monday night. We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) was held out of Wednesday's practice. This could very well be a maintenance day after Jacobs racked up 30 touches in Monday night's upset win over the Saints. But check back tomorrow for another update.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee) is officially active -- as expected -- for tonight's game against the Saints. We'll see if the knee inhibits him at all.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee) is expected to play against the Saints tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ruggs was ineffective playing through this knee injury in the 2nd half of the opener. And he only got in 1 limited practice this week. He's a risky fantasy play tonight.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Saints. The rookie put in a limited practice on Saturday after sitting out the previous 2 days. We'll look for an update on Ruggs' status on Sunday morning, but he should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Friday. He's now looking extremely iffy for Monday night's game against the Saints. We'll get another update on the rookie's status tomorrow.

Bills WR John Brown returned to a full practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's workout with a foot issue. Looks like he should be ready for lineup consideration in Week 2.

Raiders LB Nick Kwiatkoski missed practice Thursday with the pectoral injury that knocked him out of Sunday's win over the Panthers. Kwiatkoski avoided tearing the muscle, but it's not yet clear how long the team expects him to be out -- or whether he'll miss any games. We'll keep an eye on the starter-level IDP option.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs missed practice Thursday with a knee issue. It's presumably the same knee issue that knocked him temporarily out of the opening win over the Raiders. Ruggs returned to that game, which would seem to indicate he'll be OK for Week 2. But we'll track his participation throughout the week.
