Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) put in a full week of practice. He’s listed as questionable, so he might still have 1 stage of the protocol to pass through. But Flacco is fully expected to start Sunday’s game against the Titans. He’s a middling QB2 for that one.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco (concussion) practiced on Wednesday. He's seemingly on track to receive full clearance ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans. Flacco will be just a QB2 for that one, but his presence is a big upgrade over QB Ryan Mallett.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh told reporters on Monday that there's a "good chance" QB Joe Flacco (concussion) plays against the Titans this weekend. He's expected to take part in meetings and practices this week. We'll continue to track Flacco's progress through the protocol. He hasn't been great this season but is a big upgrade over QB Ryan Mallett.

Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 8 injury report and will play against the Bears on Sunday. He got just 21 snaps and 3 targets in his lone appearance this season and can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups right now.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco immediately entered the league concussion protocol Thursday night after a nasty shot to the head from Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso. Flacco slid late at the end of a scramble, and then Alonso delivered a blow to the QB's head that earned a flag. Ryan Mallett entered and will at least finish tonight's game. We'll see about Flacco's status beyond that.

Ravens S Tony Jefferson (ankle), S Eric Weddle (ankle) and OLB Terrell Suggs (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Dolphins. Use them as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Ravens S Tony Jefferson (ankle), S Eric Weddle (ankle) and OLB Terrell Suggs (knee) are questionable for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. All 3 put in full practices Wednesday and appear on track to play. We'll confirm their statuses Thursday evening.

Ravens DT Brandon Williams (foot) is active today for the 1st time since Week 2. We'll see now how important he is for a run defense that has struggled in 4 games without him but opened the year vs. a pair of bad rush offenses with Williams around. CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles') and DB Lardarius Webb (knee) are also active after entering the day questionable. Neither is much of an IDP option but helps the Baltimore team D.

Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is officially inactive for today's game against the Packers. His absence makes WR Ted Ginn a more attractive fantasy play in a plus matchup.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports that Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) will be inactive for today's game against the Packers. Snead made his debut last week and put in 3 limited practices this week, but he evidently suffered a setback at some point. We'll look for updates on his status. Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Brandon Coleman will serve as New Orleans' top 3 WRs today.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Montgomery “is not expected to be limited going in.” But NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport hears that he’ll split carries with RB Aaron Jones. Montgomery seems like the better bet for pass-catching work. Both guys are risk/reward fantasy plays.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is expected to play against the Vikings today and that he "is not expected to be limited going in." It's the most optimistic report we've heard yet. Montgomery will still be at risk of an in-game setback. And it's unclear how much RB Aaron Jones will eat into his workload. But Montgomery now looks like the best Week 6 fantasy bet in Green Bay's backfield.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He put in a full week of practice, though, and signs point to him playing. The bigger question is Montgomery’s workload with the rib injury and RB Aaron Jones’ emergence. Consider Montgomery and Jones both risk/reward RB2s for Week 6.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) was again listed as a full participant on Thursday. This workout, unlike Wednesday's, was in full pads. Montgomery told reporters afterward that he "felt fine" and that he feels "comfortable" after taking some contact. It sure sounds like he's on track to play against the Vikings this weekend. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That would seemingly put him on track for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings, but insider Jason Wilde tweeted that there's "no guarantee he plays." There's likely still concern about Montgomery's ability to absorb contact with those broken ribs. We'll continue to track his status over the next few days.

Saints HC Sean Payton said Wednesday that WR Willie Snead is over his hamstring injury and ready for this weekend's game against the Lions. Snead served a 3-game suspension to open the season and then missed the Dolphins game in London before a Week 5 bye. We're expecting him to step back into a role similar to the one that's propelled him to top 35 PPR finishes both of the past 2 seasons. Snead is worth firing up as a WR3 -- albeit with some risk -- in Week 6 lineups.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. His absence leaves the backfield to Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. Jones reportedly got the 1st-team work in practice this week and is the preferred fantasy play.

Packers RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week, but it looks like Green Bay is going to (wisely) hold him out. We’ll see if he can get ready for Week 6. RB Jamaal Williams (knee), meanwhile, put in a full week of practice and will play vs. Dallas. He’s been ahead of Aaron Jones on the depth chart all year, but we’re expecting something close to a 50/50 split on Sunday. It makes both guys risk/reward RB3s.

Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (lung) is not listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. The bruised lung isn’t nearly as big of a concern as QB E.J. Manuel and a tough Ravens secondary. Crabtree is just a WR3 in this spot.

Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (lung) graduated to a full practice on Thursday. Barring a setback, he'll play against the Ravens this weekend. Between that tough matchup and E.J. Manuel being under center, Crabtree is just a WR3 for Week 5.
