Ravens WR Marquise Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so he figures to be operating at far less than 100% if he suits up this weekend. We'd avoid Brown in fantasy lineups. WR Devin Duvernay (groin) is also questionable. Sammy Watkins is the best bet among Baltimore WRs.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) isn't listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. No surprise there after Ertz returned to last week's game. He'll continue to form a TE committee with Dallas Goedert.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's on the injury report with both "hamstring" and "rest." We're guessing Ertz will play vs. San Francisco this weekend after returning to the opener, but we'll get another update tomorrow.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday with an ankle injury. He battled a hamstring most of August but evidently picked up this ankle issue in the opener. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow and then how he's listed on the final injury report.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He returned to the opener after tweaking the hamstring, so we're expecting him to be available for Week 2. But check back tomorrow for another update.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz is questionable to return to Sunday’s game against Atlanta with a hamstring injury. Ertz caught 2 of 2 targets for 34 yards before departing.

Update: Ertz later returned to the game.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown is not listed on the Week 1 injury report. He missed almost all of August with hamstring trouble but is ready to go for Week 1. With WR Rashod Bateman on IR to open the season, Brown should be Baltimore's clear #1 WR vs. the Raiders on Monday night.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz says issues with the team have been "mended," according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. "This is the place I want to be, this is the place I want to retire," Ertz said, speaking publicly for the 1st time since the start of training camp. "I'm moving on from everything that happened this offseason. There have been apologies." This, of course, doesn't mean that an in-season trade is out of the question. But we have to head toward Week 1 assuming Ertz will be an Eagle for the year. That obviously cuts into the weekly upside -- and floor -- for Dallas Goedert, who has moved down our TE rankings. There is room in the offense for both to be fantasy relevant, though.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (hamstring) is practicing on Monday. It marks the first time he’s practiced since July 28. Odds are he’ll be ready for Week 1, but we’ll see if we catch word of a potential snap restriction. Baltimore opens up against the Raiders.

The Cardinals on Monday activated DE J.J. Watt off the PUP list. Watt had been easing back in after he hurt a hamstring during the conditioning test at the start of camp. "We wanted to make sure we were really cautious, make sure he felt 100 percent before we got him back out there," HC Kliff Kingsbury said before practice, per ESPN's Josh Weinfuss. Watt added: "We definitely took our time." Barring some setback, expect Watt to be ready for the season.

The Cardinals on Monday activated RB James Conner from the COVID list. He had landed there Aug. 12 as a high-risk close contact. Conner's return after just 4 days says he never tested positive for the virus. That he was deactivated as a close contact, though, also indicates Conner hasn't been vaccinated. So he's good to go for now. We'll see whether this issue pops back up for him at any point.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (hamstring) remained sidelined for Monday's practice. He's now been out for 18 days with this hamstring injury. We're still almost 4 weeks out from the season opener, so Brown has time. But he's a risky fantasy pick until we see him back on the field.

The Cardinals on Thursday placed RB James Conner on the COVID list as a high-risk close contact. As long as Conner tests negative, he should be back soon with no reason for further concern. We'll keep an eye out for updates on his situation. Jonathan Ward and Eno Benjamin should see extra reps for as long as Conner is out.

We passed along a positive review recently of RB Eno Benjamin's work in training camp, including praise from his head coach. Arizona's initial "unofficial" depth chart, however, lists the 2nd-year back 5th behind Chase Edmonds, James Conner, Jonathan Ward and D.J. Foster. These depth charts, of course, can often prove meaningless, especially this early in the roster-whittling process. But we wouldn't go targeting Benjamin in drafts just yet.

Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury says RB Eno Benjamin has improved in some key ways over his rookie year. "I can't tell you how far [Eno] has come from last training camp to now, the way he is approaching the game, study habits, in the classroom," the coach told Darren Urban of the team website. "We all know he is dynamic when the ball is in his hands, but he is starting to do those other things in pass protection and on special teams we have been waiting to see." Those aspects will be key to Benjamin making the roster. He did so last year but spent all 16 games inactive. Making this year's roster wouldn't necessarily make Benjamin fantasy relevant, but it might put him a James Conner (or Chase Edmonds) injury away from being worth a waiver pickup.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown (hamstring) missed his 7th straight training-camp practice on Saturday. He was at least spotted doing some conditioning work off to the side. "You don't want to come back and re-injure it, as we've seen before," HC John Harbaugh said. We're still over a month away from the start of the season, but it'd be nice to see Brown string a few healthy weeks together before Week 1.

Cardinals WR A.J. Green is sidelined with a "minor issue," HC Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday. Kingsbury wouldn't divulge any other details but did say that he expects Green back sooner rather than later, according to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss. Green was reportedly having a strong start to camp before this injury. We'll see when he's able to get back on the field.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown is sidelined with a hamstring injury. HC John Harbaugh said it's "a little more serious" than he was told initially. We'll see exactly how serious and how long Brown is out. Rookie WR Rashod Bateman also missed Monday's practice with what Harbaugh called "muscle tightness." Sammy Watkins has been Baltimore's best WR in camp so far according to multiple sources.

According to Jess Root of Cards Wire, Cardinals RB James Conner has sat out team drills in recent days with an unspecified injury. Jonathan Ward has reportedly stepped in for Conner's reps with the 1st team. We haven't seen any other report of a Conner injury, so we're not concerned about the situation just yet. But it'll be one to monitor, given Conner's injury history.

Ravens WR Marquise Brown left practice early Thursday, with the training staff assessing a leg injury. HC John Harbaugh told reporters afterward, though, that the team was just being cautious. "Not serious. Probably more precautionary than anything," Harbaugh said. "Just making sure the muscle health continues to be there early in camp and just build him up to the reps we want to get him to." We'll watch for Brown's return, but don't adjust your outlook for him at this point.
