Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but still has multiple stages of the protocol to clear in order to play on Sunday. We'll continue to keep you updated on his progress, but there's a good chance that we see QB Brian Hoyer under center for Vegas this week.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Commanders. Scott figures to return as the No. 3 RB behind D’Andre Swift and Kenneth Gainwell.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) will practice next week, HC Sean McVay said Friday. McVay stopped short of saying that Kupp will play in Week 5 against the Eagles, though. McVay said he "100%" factors in Kupp's opinion on how he feels when deciding when to put him back on the field, per The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue. We'll keep close tabs on Kupp's status this coming week.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. So he's made some progress through the protocol but still has multiple stages to clear in order to play vs. the Chargers. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (Achilles) missed his second straight practice on Thursday. His status for this weekend's game vs. the Colts is uncertain. Check back tomorrow to see how he's listed on the final injury report.

Rams HC Sean McVay said it's "the hope" that WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) will be ready to return next week. “He’s progressing. He’s doing a good job," McVay added. "But I don’t want to pigeonhole myself into (anything). He’s ramping up his workload ... When you’re talking about ‘returning to performance’ and ‘returning to play’ those are different things. We want him to be able to ‘return to performance’ at the level he’s capable of, and so we’re continuing to take it a day at a time. I know he’s doing everything in his power to be able to get himself ready to go and get out there with his teammates. Hopefully next week will represent that. If not, I’ll keep you guys posted.” It sounds like Kupp is trending in the right direction -- but isn't necessarily a lock to play next week. We'll keep you updated on the situation.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He has a long way to go to be cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Chargers. QB Brian Hoyer is expected to start if Garoppolo can't. That'd be a significant downgrade for Vegas' pass-catchers.

Eagles RB Boston Scott (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Commanders. Scott figures to be Philly's No. 3 RB behind D'Andre Swift and Kenneth Gainwell.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (Achilles) did not practice on Wednesday. It's rare to see Achilles on the injury report, but we haven't seen any concern about Higbee's availability for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. We'll see if he gets back on the field tomorrow.

Rams WR Puka Nacua came back down to earth on Monday night, recording 5 catches on 7 targets for 72 yards vs. the Bengals. Week 3 also saw a solid effort from TE Tyler Higbee. He caught all 5 of his targets for 71 yards in the loss. Not to bury the lead here, but WR Tutu Atwell was extremely impressive in this one. He had an excellent 22-yard rush that nearly resulted in a TD to go on top of his 4 catches for 50 yards and a receiving score on a team-leading 9 targets. While the Rams may have lost this game, fantasy managers who roster these pass-catchers came out as winners. Let’s see if they can keep this production rolling in Week 4 vs. the Colts.

Rams RB Kyren Williams logged 10 carries for 38 rushing yards in Week 3’s loss vs. the Bengals. The second-year back once again completely dominated the RB workshare, though he lost out on some fantasy points by only catching 2 of 7 targets for 27 receiving yards in the primetime contest. Looking ahead to Week 4 vs. the Colts, it’s fair to assume Williams will see major involvement again. Perhaps there’s a bounce back on the horizon.

Rams QB Matthew Stafford completed 18 of 33 passes for 269 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs in Week’s loss vs. the Bengals. He also added a light 7 rushing yards in the contest. Credit where it’s due: Bengals LB Logan Wilson’s 2 picks off Stafford were very impressive. On top of forcing turnovers, the Cincinnati defense sacked Stafford 6 different times throughout primetime action. Some blame here goes to the QB, but the showing from the Bengals’ defenders deserves a shoutout here as well. Hopefully, Stafford can turn things around in Week 4 vs. the Colts.

Rams WR Puka Nacua (oblique) is active for tonight's game vs. the Bengals. He played through this injury last week, catching 15 balls for 147 yards.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo is in the concussion protocol, HC Josh McDaniel said Monday. That leaves Garoppolo no better than 50/50 to play vs. the Chargers this weekend. QB Brian Hoyer is No. 2 on Vegas' depth chart; rookie QB Aidan O'Connell No. 3

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo was checked for a concussion after Sunday night's loss to the Steelers. No word yet on whether he's been placed in the protocol. We should get an update by the end of today.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 28 of 44 attempts for 324 yards with 2 TDs and 3 INTs in Week 3's loss vs. the Steelers. The Pittsburgh pass run was able to get after Garoppolo early and often, racking up 4 sacks in the contest. However, he was able to sync up nicely with WRs Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers. That's certainly a positive to hold onto. Fantasy managers should hope for a better performance with fewer turnovers in Week 4 vs. the Chargers.

Rams WR Puka Nacua (oblique) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Bengals. Nacua remained limited in Saturday's practice, but HC Sean McVay confirmed that he expects the rookie to play on Monday. Nacua played through this injury last week, catching 15 balls for 147 yards. He's safe to keep in Week 3 fantasy lineups, despite the late kickoff.

Rams WR Puka Nacua (oblique) returned to a limited practice on Friday. He's fully expected to play vs. the Bengals on Monday night, but check back tomorrow to see how he's listed on the final injury report.

Rams WR Puka Nacua (oblique) did not practice on Thursday. This injury didn't stop him from catching 15 balls in Week 2, so Nacua should be fine for Monday night's game vs. the Bengals.

Rams RB Kyren Williams has racked up 2 TDs in each of the first two games. His 4 total TDs leads the NFL through two weeks, pending the Monday night games. Williams posted a 14-52-1 rushing line in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, a tough matchup for rushing production. He added 6 catches for 48 yards and a TD on 10 targets, second most on the team. No other Rams RB got a carry in the game, and Ronnie Rivers garnered the only other RB target. The Rams made both Cam Akers and rookie Zach Evans healthy scratches for this game. Williams looks like a potential workhorse going forward and easy weekly fantasy starter until further notice.
