Bears S Eddie Jackson is active for tonight's game against Washington. He was questionable with shoulder and knee ailments that limited his Thursday and Saturday practices. But Jackson put in a full workout in between. The limited Saturday was reportedly more of a maintenance thing. He should be fine for the game, which helps Chicago's pass defense.

Packers TE Jimmy Graham (groin) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it’s tough to believe he’s anywhere close to 100%. Avoid Graham in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Packers TE Jimmy Graham (groin) is expected to play against the Broncos today. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but "looked good," according to HC Matt LaFleur. We'd still try not to use Graham in Week 3 fantasy lineups. He's coming off a Week 2 goose egg.

Bears S Eddie Jackson is questionable for Monday night's game at Washington, listed with shoulder and knee issues. Jackson went from limited Thursday to a full participant Friday before a limited Saturday. HC Matt Nagy called that limited workout a "matter of maintenance," though, according to 670 The Score. It looks like Jackson should be on the field and available if he's in your IDP plans.

Packers TE Jimmy Graham (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Broncos. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and won’t be close to 100% if he suits up. Avoid Graham in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Packers TE Jimmy Graham (groin) has missed the first 2 days of practice this week with a groin injury. We don't have any other details, but it appears he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Broncos. That'd leave Marcedes Lewis and Robert Tonyan as Green Bay's top 2 TEs. Check back tomorrow for another update on Graham.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams injured his knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. He's officially questionable to return. Williams' absence leaves LeSean McCoy atop the depth chart and Darwin Thompson as the #2 RB.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles will undergo surgery on his broken left clavicle on Monday. “We don’t have a time span [for return]," Foles said. “We’re going to take it one day at a time ... I’m going to do everything I can to get back as quickly as I can to where I’m ready to roll.” Pro Football Talk speculates that Foles could be placed on IR-designated-to-return. That'd knock him out until at least Week 10. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew is set to take over as Jacksonville's starter. He played well against the Chiefs on Sunday but is still a downgrade for this entire Jags offense.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles has been diagnosed with a broken left clavicle, according to The Athletic's Phillip Heilman. That figures to knock Foles out until at least October. We should get a more concrete timeline over the next couple of days, but it'll be Gardner Minshew under center in Jacksonville for the foreseeable future. The 6th-round rookie played surprisingly well in relief of Foles vs. the Chiefs, completing 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards, 2 scores and 1 INT.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles appeared to injure his left arm after throwing a TD to WR D.J. Chark in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He headed back to the locker room with trainers. We'll update Foles' status when we learn more. Gardner Minshew is Jacksonville's backup QB.

Update: Foles is getting an x-ray on his left clavicle.

Update: Foles has been ruled out with what the Jags are calling a left shoulder injury.

Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) returned to practice on Monday and said afterward that he'll be 100% for Week 1. The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer suggested last week that Miller could be limited early on this season, so we'll be keeping a close eye on his practice participation. A healthy Miller should emerge as Chicago's #2 WR this year.

The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer believes WR Anthony Miller (ankle) could be limited early on this season. The 2nd-year wideout has been sidelined for almost 2 weeks now with his sprained ankle. And he spent most of the offseason rehabbing from January shoulder surgery. When healthy, Miller remains a good bet to be Chicago's #2 WR. But the durability problems make him just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Bears HC Matt Nagy believes he "probably gave [RB Tarik Cohen] a little bit too much" last season. ‘‘And when you mentally drain them, it pulls them back physically," Nagy explained. Cohen played 46% of the Bears' offensive snaps in 2018, averaging 6.2 carries and 5.7 targets per game. We currently have him projected for 5.4 carries and 5.1 targets per game this year, so we're buying a reduced workload. The offshoot here is that less work for Cohen could mean more work for rookie RB David Montgomery.

HC Matt Nagy said Sunday that WR Anthony Miller sprained his right ankle in Saturday's practice, the team announced. Nagy said he doesn't expect the injury to challenge Miller's Week 1 availability. We'll see how soon the 2nd-year wideout returns to the field.

Bears WR Anthony Miller left practice Saturday with an apparent injury to his right ankle or foot, according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. Miller reportedly landed awkwardly after a jump ball in a 1-on-1 drill. We'll keep an eye out for a specific diagnosis. If you're drafting today, perhaps wait an extra round on Miller. He's going late enough to be relatively low-risk either way, though.

The Cowboys will miss DE Robert Quinn for the 1st 2 games because of a PED suspension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The news comes in the same week that Quinn broke his left hand, which will require surgery. On the plus side, the 2 games give him a little more time to recover from that. Assuming the suspension holds up, Quinn would return for an upside home matchup with the Dolphins in Week 3.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams returned to practice on Wednesday. He ended up missing 8 days with his hamstring injury. RBs Carlos Hyde, Darwin Thompson and Darrell Henderson reportedly flashed in Williams' absence, but RBs coach Eric Bieniemy reiterated on Sunday that Williams is "obviously" the starter. We'll see if he can stay healthy over the next month leading up to Week 1.

Cowboys DE Robert Quinn broke his left hand Tuesday and will need surgery, according to multiple outlets. He's expected to return in time for the regular-season opener. We'll keep an eye on the situation.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams remains sidelined with the hamstring injury he suffered on July 28. "He’s missed quite a bit," HC Andy Reid said Saturday. “He’s missed a lot of plays. It’s been great for these other guys. (Carlos Hyde) has done a nice job. He’s got a lot of reps and he’s taking advantage of them." We've heard nothing to suggest that Williams is in danger of missing the start of the season. But the missed practice time is worrisome for a guy who's never spent an NFL season as a lead back. We were already off Williams at his 2nd-round ADP. The hamstring issue has done nothing to change that.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams left Sunday’s practice early because of a hamstring issue, according to Brooke Pryor of the Kansas City Star. We’ll see how significant the injury is
