Colts TE Eric Ebron needs surgery on both of his ankles and will be placed on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ebron is averaging 4.7 targets and 2.8 catches per game. A big chunk of that work now figures to go to TE Jack Doyle, who has a shot at top-12 production the rest of the way. TE Mo Alie-Cox should also see a bump in playing time. He's worth monitoring and perhaps adding now in deep fantasy leagues.

Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was benched early in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Cincinnati. He completed 8 of 16 passes for just 85 scoreless yards and an INT. QB Devlin Hodges has replaced Rudolph. Pittsburgh's passing game remains a situation best avoided in fantasy lineups.

Browns MLB Joe Schobert (groin) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He's ready to use as you normally would in IDP lineups. Despite the "questionable" tag, we never saw any indication that Schobert was in danger of missing the game.

The Steelers announced Saturday that WR Diontae Johnson has cleared the concussion protocol. That makes him available for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Johnson makes sense in WR3 range for fantasy football lineups.

Browns MLB Joe Schobert is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. A groin issue popped up Thursday to limit Schobert's practice, but he returned to full participation Friday. We've seen no indication he's in danger of missing the game, but we'll check Schobert's status Sunday morning.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. WR Diontae Johnson (concussion) isn't listed on the final injury report and will join WR James Washington in the starting lineup. Consider both of those guys WR3s with some upside vs. a Cincinnati squad that Football Outsiders ranks 31st in pass defense.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Texans. He was listed as a full participant on Wednesday, so we’re expecting him to be available for his usual role in this one.

Steelers RB Benny Snell (knee) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. That puts him on track to play against the Bengals this weekend. Snell figures to mix in on early downs alongside Jaylen Samuels -- assuming James Conner is out.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (concussion) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to play against the Bengals this weekend. With JuJu Smith-Schuster expected to miss this one, Johnson and James Washington will serve as Pittsburgh's top 2 WRs.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee, concussion) isn't expected to play against the Bengals on Sunday. Fowler adds that the knee injury isn't serious, so JuJu seemingly has a shot to return for Week 13. We'll see if WR Diontae Johnson is able to clear the concussion protocol before the weekend. James Washington is Pittsburgh's top healthy WR right now.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Texans. He was listed as a full-go on Wednesday's estimated practice report, so we're expecting Ebron to play. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow night.

Colts TE Eric Ebron missed Tuesday's practice and is listed on the injury report with an ankle. We didn't notice him get dinged in last weekend's win over the Jaguars, so he might just be getting some rest on the short week. Check back tomorrow for another update.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is suffered a knee injury on the same play on which he was concussed in Thursday night's loss to the Browns. His status for this weekend's game against the Bengals is "uncertain," per Schefter. We'll keep tabs on JuJu's status throughout this week.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson left in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Browns after taking a shot to the face mask. The hit drew a penalty and got Cleveland S Damarious Randall ejected. Johnson walked off the field with a lot of assistance and then reportedly went from the blue tent to the locker room on a cart. He likely suffered a concussion. We'll see what the team has to say about Johnson's outlook beyond Week 11.

Update: Johnson has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster left in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Browns after taking 2 helmets to the head following a reception. Smith-Schuster reportedly went right back to the locker room, likely for concussion testing. We'll watch for his status.

Update: Smith-Schuster has been diagnosed with a concussion and is done for the night. It's his 3rd documented concussion. He at least has a few extra days to get cleared before next Sunday's game against the Bengals.

The Redskins named QB Dwayne Haskins their starter for the rest of the season. The rookie has looked in over his head so far, although he showed improvement in Buffalo last time out. Regardless, it certainly makes sense for the 1-8 Redskins to get an extended look at Haskins. He'll remain just a low-end QB2 -- and a guy to attack with opposing DSTs.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday, but we haven't heard anything about JuJu being limited in this one.

ESPN's Dianna Russini hears that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is expected to play against the Rams later today. He popped up on the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable. We won't get his official game-time status until 3 pm ET, but it sounds like JuJu is safe to keep in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. JuJu dealt with a toe injury earlier this season, although it's unclear if this is at all related. We'll look for updates on his status. Steelers-Rams doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday.

Colts TE Eric Ebron (ankle) isn’t listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He was added to the injury report on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Ebron could be in for an expanded role in the passing game against the Steelers this weekend with T.Y. Hilton out.
