The Bears pulled QB Mitchell Trubisky out of Sunday night's game late in the 4th quarter. The team reported that Trubisky has a hip injury, but we didn't see the injury while watching the game. Trubisky also watched the final drive while pacing the sideline, as opposed to getting treatment or examination. Trubisky was 24 of 43 for 190 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT when he left. We'll see where this goes.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Bengals believe WR Auden Tate avoided a serious injury when he took a shot to the head in the loss to Oakland. He flew back with the team to Cincinnati and will be re-evaluated on Monday. We should get another update then.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett sustained a concussion on his 3rd-quarter TD against the Eagles on Sunday. It's his 1st documented concussion. We'll track Dorsett's progress through the protocol this coming week. His absence would free up snaps for rookies N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers.

Bears RB David Montgomery (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Rams. He’s a risky fantasy play after rolling his ankle in practice on Wednesday.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (wrist) is active for tonight’s game against the Bears. He was limited in practice all week, but we’ve heard nothing to suggest that he won’t play his usual role tonight. Everett should get a boost in volume with WRs Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks out.

Rams WR Robert Woods is a surprise inactive for tonight's game against the Bears due to a personal issue, according to the team. We'll look for more details, but get Woods out of fantasy lineups. With Brandin Cooks (concussion) also out, Los Angeles is down to WRs Cooper Kupp, Josh Reynolds, Mike Thomas and JoJo Natson.

Bengals WR Auden Tate was carted off the field in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders after taking a hit to the head. We'll pass along an update on his status as soon as we get one.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel suffered a shoulder injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game in San Francisco and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: Samuel returned midway through the 4th quarter.

Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered a fractured hand in Sunday’s win over Jacksonville. Jordan Wilkins sat out today with an ankle injury, so the Colts might need to roll out a Jonathan Williams-Nyheim Hines tandem Thursday against Houston. Williams was particularly impressive against the Jags on Sunday, rushing 13 times for 116 yards.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a hand injury and won't return. RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is inactive today, leaving Indy with RBs Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Williams.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. RBs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Jay Ajayi are all active. Sanders is fully expected to serve as the lead back and is a nice RB2 vs. a New England defense that’s been gashed for 5.3 yards per carry by RBs over the past 5 weeks.

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. Chase McLaughlin kicks again for the ‘Niners.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. TE Ross Dwelley ran a route on 84% of QB Jimmy Garoppolo's drop backs and garnered 7 targets with Kittle out last week. He's on the spot-start radar in today’s plus matchup.

49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He didn’t practice all week, but we haven’t heard anything about him being limited today. Rib injuries tend to be pain-tolerance issues. Sanders comes with added risk in Week 11 fantasy lineups but also boasts plenty of upside against an Arizona defense he beat for 112 yards and a score just 2 weeks ago.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. Raheem Mostert will serve as the #2 RB and projects for 10-15 touches.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero hears that the Broncos are planning to "ride Phillip Lindsay harder" in today's game against the Vikings. Lindsay has been in a near-even timeshare with RB Royce Freeman, out-touching Freeman 143 to 120 through 9 weeks. More volume would obviously be good news for his fantasy stock -- although this remains a tough matchup today.

Washington S Montae Nicholson (ankle) is active for today's game against the Jets. He missed the past 2 games and is just a lower-level IDP -- albeit with big-play upside against an erratic Sam Darnold.

Jets LBs Neville Hewitt (neck, knee) and Brandon Copeland (hip) are active for today's game against Washington. Hewitt missed the past 4 games with his injury but should see full-time snaps. Copeland likely returns to a backup role, with James Burgess the expected starter next to Hewitt.

Buccaneers CB Carlton Davis (hip) is active for today's game against the Saints. He missed the past 2 but should see a lot of Michael Thomas coverage in his return.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones (chest) is active for today's game against the Bills. He missed the past 4 games with a cracked rib but should be back in IDP lineups this week. Miami will not have DE Taco Charlton (elbow) or LB Raekwon McMillan (knee), who are inactive. Sam Eguavoen figures to see more playing time in McMillan's absence but is just a marginal IDP option.
