Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett still hadn't cleared the concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. Both Dorsett and WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) are looking very iffy for tomorrow's game against the Cowboys. Their absences would mean more playing time for rookie WRs N'Keal Harry and Jakobi Meyers -- and more targets for WR Julian Edelman, RB James White and TE Ben Watson.

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Clowney missed the full week of practice and spent Friday away from the team getting treatment for the hip injury that kept him out. ESPN reports that Clowney will be a game-time decision for the game. We'll check his status Sunday morning, but it sounds like you should make alternate plans for your IDP lineup.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Eagles on Sunday and should be ready for his usual role.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cowboys. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but still hasn’t received full medical clearance. Hopefully we get an update on Dorsett on Sunday morning.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to get cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. If Dorsett plays, he figures to serve as New England's #2 WR with Mohamed Sanu out with his ankle injury.

The Seahawks ended up listing WR Tyler Lockett (shin) as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's good news after an earlier report that Lockett wasn't expected to practice. He seemingly has a good shot to play against the Eagles this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status Thursday afternoon.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) didn't practice on Wednesday, although he did participate in the walkthrough. HC Pete Carroll said that he expects Lockett to play against the Eagles this weekend -- but we wouldn't expect any different from him. We'll get another update on Lockett tomorrow.

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.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) has been released from the hospital and is flying back to Seattle on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Expectation is, despite his leg contusion, Lockett will be ready to play vs. Philly" following the Week 11 bye, Schefter adds. We'll keep an eye on Lockett's practice participation next week, but it sounds like we'll have him for Week 12 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett didn't need surgery on his badly bruised lower leg and "should be OK." He's dealing with major swelling and spent the night in a Bay Area hospital. Lockett gets a well-timed Week 11 bye, and it sounds like he has a shot to play against the Eagles in Week 12.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett injured his lower left leg late in Monday night's game against the 49ers and missed overtime. HC Pete Carroll revealed afterwards that Lockett was hospitalized for a "really bad" contusion. “It will be OK but it’s a pretty severe situation for right now," Carroll said. “I think there was a lot of swelling ... We’re ahead of it so we should be in good shape.” We'll keep a close eye on this, but Lockett has a Week 11 bye to heal up. His absence could push WR Josh Gordon into an expanded role.

6:11pm EST 11/11/19

Seahawks WR Josh Gordon is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. We'll be keeping a close eye on how big a role he plays in his team debut, but he's nothing more than a DFS flier tonight.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said there's a "good chance" WR Josh Gordon plays against the 49ers on Monday night. "He did really well," Carroll said of Gordon's first week of practice with the team. "He was very impressive in terms of picking stuff up, studying overtime. He fit in really well. He's a really good athlete. You can really tell that he's got a lot of potential to be a big-time player, so it was fun to see him on the practice field. He did a nice job." We'll see exactly how big a role Gordon plays after joining the team a little over a week ago, but he shouldn't be in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) and DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Diggs' continued absence plus S Tedric Thompson landing on IR likely means starting posts for Marquise Blair and Bradley McDougald for the upside matchup with the Bucs. McDougald returned from injury last week but played sparingly. Blair looks like the better IDP bet between the 2.

The Seahawks have claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers. It's an interesting landing spot, to say the least. We'll see when Gordon is healthy enough and comfortable enough in Seattle's offense to play, but he's worth a stash in deeper fantasy leagues.

The Patriots are releasing WR Josh Gordon from IR, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. We'll see where he lands and then when he's able to return from his knee injury. Gordon is worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues but isn't a great bet to re-emerge as a bankable fantasy asset down the stretch.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. There’s some risk after he missed last week, but he also carries significant sack upside against Atlanta. CB Tre Flowers (neck) and S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) are inactive for the game. S Bradley McDougald (back) is active but isn’t a strong IDP option.

The Seahawks have ruled out DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Jefferson played through a questionable tag last week but stayed on the field for less than one-third of the defensive snaps. DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) is questionable. He missed last week before putting in limited practices all this week. S Quandre Diggs (hamstring), S Bradley McDougald (back) and CB Tre Flowers (neck) are also questionable. Diggs just arrived via trade and faces an uncertain role. McDougald missed last week's game and Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the past 2 days. Flowers took part in limited practices all week.

The Patriots have placed WR Josh Gordon on IR with 2 bone bruises to his knee. The injuries are reportedly minor, though, and New England plans to release Gordon as soon as he's healthy. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo hears that could happen "soon," which would free up Gordon to sign elsewhere. With his status in limbo, he might be worth holding on to in fantasy leagues with deeper benches. But he's also droppable if you need immediate help. The Patriots, meanwhile, will move forward with Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and the newly acquired Mohamed Sanu as their top 3 WRs. They're also expected to get 1st-round rookie WR N'Keal Harry back in Week 9.

Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Jets. He should slide in as New England's #2 WR with Josh Gordon out, although there's elevated risk here as Dorsett comes off the hamstring injury.
