Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is active for today’s game against the Browns. He was added to the injury report on Thursday but was able to get in a limited practice on Friday. Edelman is safe to get into fantasy lineups in a plus matchup and with QB Tom Brady back in action.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is expected to play against the Browns today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Edelman popped up on Thursday's injury report but got in a limited practice on Friday. We never heard any concern about the foot. He's a borderline WR1 in PPR and a strong WR2 in non-PPR with QB Tom Brady back.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bills. He was added to the injury report on Thursday but was able to get in a limited practice on Friday. We’re guessing Edelman will play, but we’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman was added to Thursday's injury report with a foot. He was limited in practice. We won't hear anything from the team on his status, so we'll have to see what he does in practice on Friday. Edelman, of course, has had 2 foot surgeries over the past year.

Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower is active after missing the past 2 games with a knee injury. That should make him OK to use as you normally would in IDP leagues, given that Hightower has steadily increased his practice participation to this point. Of course, New England is consistently tough to predict. So use caution.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu will be playing with a separated shoulder today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Sanu suffered the injury last week. He didn't practice on Wednesday but put in a limited workout on Thursday and was a full participant on Friday. We'll see how big a factor the shoulder is against the Panthers today, but Sanu is an extremely shaky fantasy starter.

Colts WR Phillip Dorsett (ankle) is active for this morning's game against the Jaguars. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice, but we never heard any concern about his status. Dorsett is fine to get into fantasy lineups as a WR3 with upside.

Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. He put in limited practices all week, however, after missing 1 or more each of the past 2 weeks. Hightower sat out the past 2 games but seems closer to a return this Sunday. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is not listed on the Week4 injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game against the Panthers after leaving last week with a shoulder injury. Sanu has seen just 9 targets over the past 2 weeks and is a poor fantasy play.

Colts WR Phillip Dorsett is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Jaguars after being added to the injury report on Friday with an ankle. He was officially limited in Friday's practice. Colts-Jags kicks off at 9:30 am ET, so we'll know Dorsett's status early. If active, he'll be a risk/reward WR3.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday. He was limited, so we're not yet considering him a lock to play this weekend. But he's at least trending in the right direction. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. ESPN's Ed Werder reported earlier this week that Sanu is expected to play against the Panthers this weekend, but we'll need to keep an eye on his status over the next few days.

ESPN's Ed Werder hears that Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is expected to play against the Panthers this weekend. He was knocked out of Monday night's game shortly before halftime. We still don't have any specifics on his injury. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu suffered a shoulder injury in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Saints and will not return. He finishes with 3 catches on 4 targets for 31 yards. We should get an update on Sanu after the game or on Tuesday.

Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower will miss his 2nd straight game tonight against the Texans. He's out with a knee injury, despite having put in limited practices each of the past 2 weeks. Hightower would seem to be on track for a Week 4 return after the long week following the Thursday night game. But we'll have to keep an eye on his status. Jonathan Freeny will start in his place.

Browns QB Cody Kessler will start Sunday's game in Miami, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We're still waiting for details on QB Josh McCown's left shoulder injury, but it sounds like he's looking at an extended absence. Kessler is a 3rd-round rookie from USC who somehow managed to complete 67.9% of his attempts but average just 3.3 yards per this preseason. He's a significant downgrade for all of Cleveland's skill-position players and makes the Dolphins defense a Week 3 spot-start option.

As expected, Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower will miss today's game against the Dolphins. He missed practice all week with a knee injury.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he was out there at all is a good sign and puts him on track to be ready for this weekend's game against the Raiders. We'll see if he's able to put in a full workout on Thursday or Friday.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu injured his ankle and was spotted "limping heavily" after Sunday's loss to the Bucs, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. We didn't notice Sanu miss much time during his 5-80-1 Falcons debut, but we'll look for an update on his status tomorrow.

Ravens TE Ben Watson tore his Achilles early in Saturday night's preseason game, according to ESPN. That ends his season -- and possibly the 35-year-old's career. Maxx Williams now looks like the best fantasy bet among Baltimore's TEs. Last year's 2nd-rounder is a talented pass-catcher who tallied 13 receptions over his final 3 games as a rookie. Williams still isn't worth a roster spot in most fantasy leagues but could emerge as a spot-start option. TE Crockett Gillmore also remains in the mix.
