Chargers TE Hunter Henry suffered a "small" laceration of a kidney in Saturday night's loss to the Chiefs, HC Anthony Lynn said Monday. Henry's status for the final 2 games of the season is "up in the air," according to Lynn. We'll track his status throughout the week, but fantasy owners obviously need to be making backup plans.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler will miss the rest of the season with a broken hand suffered in Saturday night's loss to the Chiefs. The rookie averaged 5.1 carries and 2.8 targets over the past 8 games. The majority of that action figures to go to RB Melvin Gordon over the final 2 weeks. Branden Oliver will step in as the #2 RB.

Update: HC Anthony Lynn said Monday that Ekeler could play the final 2 games of the season with a cast on his broken hand. He obviously wouldn't be an asset in the passing game, though.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen injured his back in the 4th quarter of Saturday night's game against the Chiefs. He's officially questionable to return but was shown getting carted back to the locker room. We'll look for an update on Allen's injury tomorrow and monitor his status next week. He caught 5 of 8 targets for 54 yards before exiting this one.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He remains a marginal IDP option, but his presence is bad news for the K.C. passing game.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward is questionable for Saturday's game against the Chiefs after a persistent calf injury "flared up" and kept him out of practice Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times. "He had more soreness in his calf, and it kind of worked its way down to his Achilles, so we held him out," HC Anthony Lynn said. "There's always a concern, but we're hopeful he can play." We'll check on Hayward's status when the inactives are announced at about 7 p.m. ET Saturday.

Bills HC Sean McDermott on Friday named QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) his stater for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. He put in a full week of practice, although it's still possible his rushing ability is a bit limited by that knee injury. That -- plus the fact that Taylor has busted in 2 of his last 3 starts -- makes him tough to trust as more than a QB2. His return is good news for Buffalo's skill-position guys.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly puts him on track to play against the Dolphins this weekend. Taylor would be tough to trust outside of 2-QB leagues, but his return is good news for Buffalo's skill-position guys.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) did "most" of practice on Wednesday, HC Sean McDermott said. We'll see whether Buffalo lists him as "limited" or "full." QB Nathan Peterman, meanwhile, remains in the concussion protocol but put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a chance to be cleared ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. McDermott reiterated on Wednesday, though, that Taylor remains his starter when healthy.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. QB Nathan Peterman gets the start but can’t be trusted in any fantasy format after his 5-INT debacle in his 1st start.

Bills HC Sean McDermott labeled QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) a game-time decision for this weekend's meeting with the Colts. He added that Taylor could be active but back up QB Nathan Peterman. Taylor was officially limited in both Thursday and Friday's practices. We'll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday, but he'd be tough to trust outside of 2-QB leagues at less than 100%. Peterman, of course, wouldn't be an option in any fantasy format.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's still considered "day-to-day," according to HC Sean McDermott, and remains uncertain for this weekend's game against the Colts. McDermott added that QB Nathan Peterman will start that one if Taylor can't go.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He reportedly avoided a serious injury but is no better than 50/50 to play against the Colts this weekend. Buffalo would likely turn back to QB Nathan Peterman in Taylor's absence, although Peterman reportedly split practice reps with Joe Webb on Wednesday.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has been diagnosed with a patellar tendon contusion and is considered "day-to-day," HC Sean McDermott said Monday. McDermott added that Taylor remains his team's starter when healthy. We'll track his status throughout the week, but Taylor would be tough to trust in Week 14 fantasy lineups -- even in a plus matchup against the Colts.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor believes he avoided a major knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Taylor is scheduled for additional testing, and we should learn more tomorrow. But this is obviously relatively good news for now. Taylor played poorly before exiting the loss to the Patriots, but QB Nathan Peterman wasn't any better. We'll see if Taylor is available for Week 14 and if Buffalo sticks with him.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was carted back to the locker room with a knee injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Patriots. He was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game. Taylor was awful before exiting, completing just 9 of 18 passes for 65 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. The infamous Nathan Peterman is in for Buffalo.

As expected, Chargers CB Casey Hayward is active for today's game against the Browns. He was listed on the injury report with an ankle issue during the week, but Hayward missed practice while dealing with the death of a younger brother. Back with the team, he should be in IDP lineups for a high-ceiling matchup against DeShone Kizer.

Chargers CB Casey Hayward is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, but HC Anthony Lynn told ESPN.com he expects his lead cover guy to play. Hayward has a "calf/personal" designation on the injury report. He has been away from the team all week dealing with the death of a younger brother but is scheduled to return before Sunday.

Bears WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. He put in a full practice on Friday, so the groin shouldn’t be much of an issue. With 9 catches on 13 targets over the last 2 weeks, Inman is on the WR4 radar.

Chargers WR Mike Williams suffered a bone bruise on his knee in Thursday's win over the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie will miss Week 13 and is considered "week-to-week" beyond that. Williams' role had been slowly growing, but this injury kills any chance he had of being a fantasy factor this season. He can be dropped from redraft rosters.

Bears WR Dontrelle Inman (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Eagles. He put in a full practice on Friday, though, so he should play. With 9 catches on 13 targets over the last 2 weeks, Inman is on the WR4 radar.
