Bills S Micah Hyde is active for today's game against the Bengals. He had been questionable with a knee injury. He'll carry upside against QB Andy Dalton it what's expected to be rainy game conditions.

Panthers S Kurt Coleman sprained the MCL in his left knee in Sunday's win over the Patriots and could miss a month, the team reported Monday. Rookie Demetrious Cox is expected to step in next to SS Mike Adams, with Colin Jones also rotating in, according to ESPN's David Newton. The Panthers head to Detroit this Sunday.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. We heard this morning that he’s still not at 100%, though, and will be on a snap count. Brown can’t be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups. His return makes WR J.J. Nelson tougher to trust — although he retains plenty of upside in this plus matchup.

The Bills have ruled DE Shaq Lawson inactive for today's game in Atlanta. He suffered a groin injury in practice this week. Losing their starting left DE certainly doesn't help a Buffalo D that you shouldn't have been starting anyway.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is expected to play against the 49ers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But he's not 100%," Rapoport adds. "Figure he'll be on a pitch count until he's back to himself." Brown can't be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups, but his return is a boost for QB Carson Palmer.

Bills DE Shaq Lawson is questionable for Sunday's game in Atlanta because of a groin injury he suffered in Thursday's practice. He did not participate Friday after leaving the Thursday workout early. Don't bet on him playing this week.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers after a limited week of practice. HC Bruce Arians said on Friday that Brown is on track to play. He could be on a snap count, though, and can’t be trusted in Week 4 fantasy lineups. Brown’s return also dings WR J.J. Nelson — although this matchup remains excellent.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It was his 1st official practice since prior to the season opener. Brown is clearly making progress, but his Week 4 status remains uncertain. We'll see what he's able to do on Thursday.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) is out for Monday night's game against the Cowboys. He didn't practice all week and remains without a timetable for return. Brown is droppable in shallower fantasy leagues.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Fantasy owners can't be banking on him playing against the Cowboys on Monday night. Look for J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown to again serve as Arizona's #2 and #3 WRs.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians admitted on Monday that it "doesn't look hopeful" for WR John Brown (quad) to play against the Cowboys next Monday night. Brown didn't practice at all this past week and has no timetable for return. His absence would again leave bigger roles for J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown. Nelson tallied a 5-120-1 line in Sunday's win over the Colts, while Brown posted a 4-73 on a team-high 11 targets.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Titans. That's excellent news for RB Leonard Fournette's pass-catching role. The rookie is a borderline RB1.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) has been ruled out for this weekend's game against the Colts. He's seemingly dealing with the same issue that hampered him in August. Brown's absence leaves J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown behind Larry Fitzgerald on the WR depth chart. With both Brown and RB David Johnson out, Fitz should see huge volume on Sunday.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll make his 2017 debut against the Titans on Sunday. Yeldon isn’t a fantasy option, but we’re curious to see how much pass-catching work he steals from RB Leonard Fournette.

Cardinals WR John Brown (quad) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It's worth noting that Darren Urban of the team's official website is "guessing" that Brown will play against the Colts, "taking it easy in practices so he can be as ready as he can be on Sundays." Even in that case, though, the quad issue makes him a risky fantasy option. We just moved Brown down the Week 2 Rankings and will update his status again tomorrow.

Cardinals WR John Brown did not practice on Wednesday and was listed on the injury report with a quad. We haven't gotten an update from the team, but any missed time for Brown is noteworthy considering his sickle-cell issue. We'll have another update on his status tomorrow.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. RB Corey Grant is active, along with Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory. We’re curious to see how much action the rookie gets on passing downs. He’s a mid-range RB2 in this tough matchup.

Jaguars RB T.J. Yeldon (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. For what it’s worth, the Florida Times-Union’s Ryan O’Halloran expects Yeldon to play. He’s not a fantasy option, but his absence would boost RB Leonard Fournette’s target projection.

Cardinals WR John Brown put in a full practice on Wednesday but didn't sound completely confident about his health. “I’ll be ready no matter what,” he said of his Week 1 status. “Even if I’m not 100%, I’ll do what I can do.” Brown went off for 49 yards and 2 TDs in the 3rd preseason game, but he played just 6 snaps with the 1st-team offense. He'll be active for Sunday's game against the Lions, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was on some type of snap count. Brown is a risky Week 1 play -- albeit with plenty of upside.

Cardinals WR John Brown caught both of his targets for 49 yards and 2 TDs in Saturday night's game against the Falcons. Brown caught scoring throws from Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton. According to Pro Football Focus, he played just 6 snaps with Palmer before the starting QB left the game. WRs Jaron Brown, J.J. Nelson and Brittan Golden each played 16+ with Palmer. It's tough to know how much that means after John Brown missed so much time with his quad injury -- and then played with the 2nd team. We'll see about his depth-chart status heading into Week 1, but he's worth a shot at current ADP. A healthy Brown might be the best WR on the Arizona roster.
