Saints TE Adam Trautman hurt his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. He tried to return in the 2nd half but was unable to stay on the field. He's officially questionable to return.

The Broncos have designated S Justin Simmons (thigh) to return from IR this week. The team also released 3 players Tuesday to make room on the 53-man roster for the injured guys to return. We'll watch this week to confirm that Simmons is ready for game action.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said Tuesday that TE Greg Dulcich is ready to return to practice. The rookie missed time in the spring with a core-muscle injury and most of training camp with a hamstring. He probably has a lot of catching up to do, but Dulcich has a chance to eventually claim a significant role with TE Albert Okwuegbunam in the doghouse.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. Consider him a WR4 with Amon-Ra St. Brown back for this one.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Patriots today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Reynolds will have much less fantasy appeal if WR Amon-Ra St. Brown suits up. We'll get Detroit's inactives around 11:30 am.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. That obviously ends his season. Melvin Gordon becomes the obvious name as top candidate to take over the Denver backfield, but Mike Boone has seen significant use each of the past 2 games. He stepped in to run nearly as many routes as Williams and Gordon in Week 3, and then Boone played more than Gordon against the Raiders. Gordon entered Sunday with a neck issue that limited him for a couple of practices, but he finished with a full workout. He did take a 2nd-half trip to the medical tent but returned. We'll see just how the new backfield split plays out. Boone is at least worth a pickup in most fantasy football leagues.

Update: In addition to the torn ACL, Williams also has a torn LCL and posterior lateral corner, sources tell NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That figures to lengthen Williams' rehab timeline. We'll track his progress.

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton scored his first TD of the season in Week 4. He added 5 catches for 52 yards on a team-high 7 targets (28%). Denver ran only 48 plays in a road loss to Vegas, but it was nice to see Sutton convert on his 3rd end zone target of the season. Losing RB Javonte Williams to a knee injury — potentially for an extended absence — might push this offense to more passing in the weeks ahead. Regardless, Sutton is locked in as a weekly starter.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams is "feared to have suffered a serious knee injury," a source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams is scheduled for a Monday MRI to get a better look at the knee, "but there is not a lot of optimism surrounding the injury," Rapoport adds. We should get an official diagnosis on Williams tomorrow.

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett said after the loss to the Raiders that RB Javonte Williams will undergo an MRI on his injured right knee on Monday. Hackett had no further update on Williams' injury. But, per ESPN's Jeff Legwold, Williams left the locker room on crutches. We should learn more about his status tomorrow, but this obviously looks like a significant injury. Williams' absence would leave Denver's backfield to Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone.

Update: Mike Klis of 9News of Williams' injury that the "fear is it is serious and he will be sidelined for [an] extended period."

Broncos RB Javonte Williams went down with a right knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Raiders and was quickly ruled out. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. Williams' absence leaves Denver with RBs Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone.

Broncos DT D.J. Jones (concussion) is active for today's game against the Raiders.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. Reynolds got in just limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but he figures to play a significant role today with WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown and D.J. Chark and RB D’Andre Swift out.

Dolphins S Brandon Jones (chest) and CB Xavien Howard (groin, glute) are active for tonight's game against the Bengals. It's a positive matchup for both defenders.

Dolphins S Brandon Jones (chest) and CB Xavien Howard (groin, glute) are questionable for Thursday night's game at Cincinnati. He did put in limited practices the past 2 days. We'll check his availability Thursday evening.

Broncos RB Javonte Williams led the backfield in Week 3, rushing 15 times for 58 yards. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Melvin Gordon mixed in for 12 attempts and a goal line score, plus 6 targets (vs. 5 for Williams). Williams added a drop. If there’s a positive here, it’s that he continues to pass the eye test as a tackle-dodger. Pro Football Focus charted him with 5 missed tackles forced against a stout San Francisco defense. He’ll enter a more favorable matchup this Sunday at Vegas.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy played through his questionable tag for Sunday night's win over the 49ers. He spent 20 fewer snaps on the field than WR Courtland Sutton but ran only 9 fewer routes (39-30, according to Pro Football Focus). Sutton led the team, though, in targets (10), receptions (8) and receiving yards (97). No one else on the team reached 30 receiving yards. Jeudy added 2 catches for 17 yards on 6 targets. His 1 missed connection was a narrowly completed deep ball that got tipped by the covering corner just before reaching Jeudy's hands. We'd bet on that playing-time gap closing as Jeudy gets further beyond his Week 2 injury.

Lions WR Josh Reynolds led the team in targets (10) and receiving yards (96) while tying WR Amon-Ra St. Brown for the receptions lead (6) in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. The game didn't mark any change in role for Reynolds, who has been operating with St. Brown and D.J. Shark as Detroit's clear top trio at the position. Chark posted a 3-46 receiving line among 6 targets in this contest. We'd bet on him and Reynolds alternating production, with St. Brown the weekly favorite to lead. TE T.J. Hockenson chimed in with the team's lone TD catch against Minnesota, 1 of his 3 catches for 18 yards among 4 targets.

7:02pm EDT 9/25/22

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is active for tonight’s game vs. the 49ers. With WR Jerry Jeudy playing, Hamler is just a DFS tournament flier in this one.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the 49ers. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, so he should be good to go. Hamler’s Week 3 fantasy projection depends heavily on WR Jerry Jeudy’s status.

Broncos WR K.J. Hamler (knee, hip) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. After playing 40 snaps in the opener, Hamler missed practice all last week and was inactive for the Texans game. It looks like he has a shot to return for Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers -- and is certainly needed with WR Jerry Jeudy banged up.
