Cowboys TE Geoff Swaim injured his right knee in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. He hauled in all 3 of his targets for 25 yards before exiting. Rookie TE Dalton Schultz picked up some playing time in Swaim's absence. We'll look for more info on his injury today.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is questionable for Sunday morning's game against the Chargers. Vaccaro missed the past 2 games with an elbow injury and put in just limited practices this week. He's not a strong enough asset to gamble on before proving he's all the way back.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard did not show up on the team's final injury report this week. That means he's ready to go for Sunday morning's game against the Chargers. Woodyard's fine to pop back into IDP lineups.

The Dolphins have ruled out QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) for this weekend's game against the Lions. Getting ruled out on Wednesday suggests there's a good chance Tannehill misses action beyond this week. QB Brock Osweiler gets another start this Sunday after a stupefying 380-yard, 3-TD outing last weekend. He's still not a recommended fantasy play.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase labeled QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) "day-to-day" in his press conference on Monday. Gase added that he won't have a good read on Tannehill's Week 7 availability until later in the week. QB Brock Osweiler played better than even Mrs. Osweiler expected in Sunday's win over the Bears, completing 28 of 44 passes for 380 yards, 3 TDs and 2 INTs. That could make Miami a bit more cautious in bringing Tannehill back. You should continue to avoid this situation in fantasy lineups.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the Ravens. That clears the way for Jayon Brown to play full time for the 3rd straight week and makes him a strong IDP starter.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Bears. His status beyond this week is uncertain. It’ll be Brock Osweiler under center today vs. 1 of the league’s best defenses. We’d avoid the Dolphins passing game altogether.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's availability for today's game against the Bears is "up in the air." He's dealing with a throwing shoulder injury -- and we've heard whispers that it's an AC joint sprain. Tannehill was a full-go in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but limited Friday. We'll get his official status by noon ET, but he shouldn't be anywhere near fantasy lineups. Miami would be forced to turn to QB Brock Osweiler if Tannehill can't go.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens with the shoulder injury that cost him Week 5 and knocked him out of the previous game early. Woodyard has called himself day to day. We'll see about his status Sunday. His status could also affect the playing time for Jayon Brown. The 2nd-year LB played at least two-thirds of the snaps in every game this season, though, so he's worth a shot in many cases even if Woodyard's active.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bears. He was a full-go on Wednesday and Thursday but limited on Friday. We've heard nothing to suggest that Tannehill is in any danger of missing this game, but we'll keep an eye on his status. Of course, Tannehill is barely a QB2 option in a brutal matchup.

The Titans have ruled LB Wesley Woodyard our for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of last week's game. Jayon Brown played 76 of 78 snaps against the Eagles, tallying 10 tackles and a sack. He's an upside IDP option against the Bills in Week 5.

Titans HC Mike Vrabel told reporters Monday that the team is "hopeful" LB Wesley Woodyard will be able to play against the Bills on Sunday. Woodyard left Week 4 early with a shoulder injury. We'll keep an eye on his status through the practice week.

Titans LB Wesley Woodyard left Sunday's win over the Eagles after just 2 snaps with a shoulder injury and did not return. In his absence, Jayon Brown played all but 1 defensive snap after playing 67% to 71% over the previous 3 weeks. He'll be in play for IDP owners if Woodyard remains out for Week 5's trip to Buffalo. Rookie Rashaan Evans also jumped up to a 77% snap share after playing just 18 total snaps through 3 weeks. We'll see what we hear about Woodyard's shoulder this week.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after dislocating his right elbow in Sunday's win over the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tennessee signed Vaccaro as a free agent to step in after starter Johnathan Cyprien landed on IR. We'll see if the team looks outside the roster for help over the next few weeks.

Titans rookie OLB Harold Landry left Saturday night's game against the Steelers in the 1st quarter with an ankle injury. We'll see about the severity of that for a 2nd-round pick who has seemingly worked his way into Tennessee's edge rotation. Landry saw his final college season ended early by an ankle injury.

Titans rookie ILB Rashaan Evans returned to practice Wednesday. Evans spent more than 3 weeks sidelined for "heat-related" reasons, ESPN's Turron Davenport reports. We don't yet know any further details of the issue. Evans had been splitting snaps with veteran Will Compton before going down. The 1st-round pick figures to get back to that before too long, but the lost time will make it tougher for Evans to take over the spot by himself. We've knocked Evans down the LB rankings. He's a risk/reward pick at the bottom of LB3 range.

Update: Aaaaand Evans left his 1st practice back. “Rashaan wasn’t feeling great after individual, so we’ll give him some more treatment, and we’ll give him some more time,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said, according to TitanInsider.com. “As soon as he’s ready, we’ll get him back out there.”

After visiting with several free-agent safeties, the Titans have reached a deal with former Saints S Kenny Vaccaro, ESPN reports. That comes, of course, after Tennessee lost S Johnathan Cyprien for the season. We'll see if Vaccaro can work his way into the starting lineup alongside S Kevin Byard. Vaccaro's a better fantasy player than real player.

The Titans on Sunday placed rookie LB Rashaan Evans on the non-football illness list as they opened training camp for all rookies, QBs and players who finished the offseason program with injuries. We've seen nothing further about Evans' illness, so we'll assume it's not a big deal. He's eligible to come off the list at any point during camp. Tennessee also placed 3rd-year OLB Kevin Dodd on the "reserve -- did not report" list. That follows Dodd unexpectedly sitting out offseason workouts. The former 2nd-round pick has appeared in just 18 games through 2 seasons and tallied only 1 sack. We'll see if his future holds any NFL relevance.

Rams WR Josh Reynolds revealed Monday that he had surgery after the season to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. The injury occurred on a punt return in the 4th quarter of L.A.'s playoff loss to the Saints. He's spent most of the offseason rehabbing but is able to participate in this week's OTAs. "I can’t really press block with all the special teams stuff. Other than that, it’s healed," Reynolds said. "I’ll be about 100 percent (by training camp.)" Reynolds caught just 11 balls as a rookie, buried behind Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins on the depth chart. He'll again be the #4 WR this season, with Brandin Cooks stepping into Watkins' role. Reynolds remains a dynasty "hold" but will need an injury to 1 of the Rams' top 3 WRs to have a shot at 2018 fantasy value.

The Dolphins expect QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) to be able to participate in next week's OTAs with "little or no limitations," according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Tannehill suffered a partially torn ACL back in December 2016 but didn't undergo surgery until last August, forcing him to miss the entire 2017 campaign. Miami flirted with the rookie QBs this offseason, and this feels like a make-or-break year for Tannehill with the Dolphins. He was sitting 20th among QBs in fantasy points when he went down in 2016, his 1st year in HC Adam Gase's offense. There's room for improvement in 2018, although the departure of WR Jarvis Landry won't help. Tannehill should only be drafted as a lower-end QB2.
