Jets CB Darryl Roberts (calf) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He has missed the past 2 weeks with his calf injury. ILB Neville Hewitt (neck) is questionable for the game, but he returned to full playing time in Week 11 and should be good to go.

Lions S Tracy Walker entered Week 11 questionable with a right knee injury that cost him the previous 2 games. He left Week 11 early with a right knee injury. HC Matt Patricia said afterward that he didn't know whether it was the same injury, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein. We'll see about the outlook here, but IDP owners should expect to miss Walker for at least the next game. Even with Walker active against the Cowboys, Tavon Wilson and Will Harris still started at safety. Wilson looks like a full-timer whether Walker's in or out. Harris' role depends on Walker's involvement.

Lions DE Trey Flowers sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. We'll see whether he can progress through the league protocol in time for Week 12, but this isn't the 1st concussion of Flowers' career.

Lions S Tracy Walker is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He missed the past 2 games with a knee injury and managed just a limited Friday practice this week. Walker remains a risky IDP option. He has also ranked among the position's top fantasy scorers when healthy this season. DT Damon Harrison (groin) is also active after entering the day questionable. DE Romeo Okwara (groin) is inactive.

Lions SS Tracy Walker returned to a limited practice Friday for the 1st time since suffering a knee injury that cost him the past 2 games. Walker is questionable for Sunday's clash with the Cowboys. DT Damon Harrison (groin) is questionable for the game. He has played through questionable tags the past 2 weeks. DE Romeo Okwara (groin) is also questionable. He's not much of an IDP option even if healthy.

Falcons lead CB Desmond Trufant is inactive for today's game against the Saints. It'll be his 4th straight game down with a hamstring injury. Trufant doesn't matter for IDP owners, but his injury only enhances for WR Michael Thomas a matchup that was already terrific.

Lions DT Damon Harrison (groin) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) are active for today's game against the Bears. Both are low-level IDP options. DE Romeo Okwara (groin) is inactive.

The Lions have ruled out S Tracy Walker (knee) for Sunday's game against the Bears. That should mean rookie S Will Harris joining Tavon Wilson in the starting lineup for the 2nd straight game. DE Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) is also out. DT Damon Harrison (groin), DE Romeo Okwara (groin) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) are questionable for the game. None is a strong IDP option, but we'll update their statuses Sunday morning.

Jets CB Darryl Roberts suffered a non-contact calf injury in practice Wednesday. He sat out Thursday's workout. "I'm not really sure his availability for the game," HC Adam Gase said Thursday, according to the New York Post. "I just know those are tough ones to come back from that fast." We've removed Roberts from the Week 10 DB rankings. We'll see how things progress.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson exited late in Sunday's loss to the Raiders after taking a big hit. HC Matt Patricia said Monday, though, that Hockenson isn't in the concussion protocol and just had the wind knocked out of him. The rookie will be available for this weekend's game against the Bears.

Lions CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT Damon Harrison (groin) are active for today's game against the Raiders. Slay returns after missing last week's game. Harrison merely entered the day questionable. DT A'Shawn Robinson is also active after sustaining a Friday ankle injury that rendered him questionable. MLive's Kyle Meinke says the ankle is clearly a "problem." None of the 3 is a high-level IDP for Week 9.

The Lions have ruled S Tracy Walker (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. That should leave Tavon Wilson and Will Harris as the top 2 safeties. CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT Damon Harrison (groin) are questionable.

Lions S Tracy Walker left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Giants with a right knee injury and did not return. HC Matt Patricia said after the game that Walker would be in for further evaluation Monday. Rookie S Will Harris saw the biggest playing-time spike, matching starter Tavon Wilson at 82% of the defensive snaps. Harris would likely start in Walker's place if the incumbent misses further time.

Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He was sitting 17th among WRs in PPR points through 4 weeks and returns for a plus matchup against Houston’s 30th-ranked WR defense.

Lions DT Damon Harrison (groin) is active for today’s game against the Giants. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) is expected to play against the Texans today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Williams has missed the past 3 weeks with plantar fasciitis but should return to a big role in Oakland's passing game. He tallied 17 catches on 24 targets for 216 yards and 4 TDs over the first 4 games of the season.

The Lions have ruled CB Darius Slay (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Giants. DT Damon Harrison (groin) is questionable. He missed only Thursday's practice, though, between full workouts Wednesday and Friday. Harrison's a low-level IDP even if active.

Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Texans. OC Greg Olson suggested on Thursday that Williams is likely to return for this one. It’s a 4:25 pm ET kickoff, but hopefully we get an update on Sunday morning. If active, Williams will be a risk/reward WR3 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Raiders OC Greg Olson expects WR Tyrell Williams (foot) to return for Sunday's game against the Texans. “Looked good yesterday and followed it up with another good day today. So, we’re excited to get him back," Olson said after Williams put in another limited practice on Thursday. Williams has scored in each of his 4 games this season and is sitting 20th among WRs in PPR points per game. He's a nice Week 8 play vs. Houston's 30th-ranked WR defense.

Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Texans. Williams would be an upside WR3 in that plus matchup.
