Shark Bites

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson injured his right ankle in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Packers. He got it taped up and tried to jog it off, but he hasn't re-entered the game. We'll look for updates on his status.

Lions S Tavon Wilson (back) is out for today's game against the Packers. CB Nevin Lawson (illness), S Quandre Diggs (hand) and DE Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) are active. None of these 4 is a big IDP factor.

11:10am EDT 10/7/18

Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday. But Jones went through the same routine back in Week 3 before going out and posting a 4-69-1 line. He’s a WR3 with upside for Week 5.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion) did not practice on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Stacy Dales. On top of the concussion, he's also listed with a hamstring on the injury report now. We'll get Allison's official status around noon ET today, but he's looking like a big long shot to play against the Lions. That'll leave rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling as Green Bay's #2 WR -- and an intriguing flier if you're looking for upside in deep fantasy leagues and DFS lineups.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lions WR Marvin Jones is expected to play Sunday against the Packers. He's officially questionable after an ankle injury limited him in Friday's practice. We'll confirm Jones' game status at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) was added to the injury report on Friday. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Packers. It’s worth noting that Jones went through the same routine back in Week 3 before going out and posting a 4-69-1 line. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 5. He didn’t practice all week, though, and seems unlikely to gain clearance by Sunday. Rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling will step into Allison’s role and is a deep-league and DFS flier.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Friday that there's "hope" for WR Geronimo Allison (concussion) to play against the Lions this weekend. Allison didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday, so he still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through. We'll watch for additional updates on his progress and will find out Allison's official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison sustained a concussion in the 2nd half of Sunday's win over the Bills, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. It's at least the 2nd concussion of his career, with the other coming last preseason. We'll track Allison's progress through the protocol this week. Green Bay was already without WR Randall Cobb yesterday, leaving rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling as the #3 WR.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He clearly suffered a setback with his injured shoulder, which cost him the entire practice week. MLB Jarrad Davis (knee) is active after showing up questionable on Friday's injury report with a knee issue. He's an OK IDP option.

Lions CB Darius Slay is active for tonight's game against the Patriots, just a week after suffering a concussion at San Francisco. It's somewhat surprising after Slay reached the weekend without having cleared the league protocol, but Detroit's top cover man is available if you waited on him for your IDP lineup. DE Ezekiel Ansah is inactive for the 2nd straight week, however, because of a shoulder injury.

Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. He was added to the injury report on Friday and listed as questionable, so he comes with added risk. But if you were waiting on Jones, get him into fantasy lineups.

There's "optimism" that Lions WR Marvin Jones (ankle) will be able to play against the Patriots tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable. "He’ll be monitored throughout the day," Rapoport adds. Jones can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now, but make sure you have a late-game replacement rostered in case he ends up inactive.

The Lions have deemed DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) and CB Darius Slay (concussion) questionable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots. It's hard to envision Slay playing after he missed practice all week. Ansah put in limited practices all last week but then missed the game. We'll see about his status Sunday evening, but don't count on Ansah for your IDP lineup.

Lions WR Marvin Jones was added to Friday’s injury report as limited with an ankle injury. It looks like he got hurt in Friday’s practice. He’s listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Patriots. We’ll be on the lookout for updates on Jones’ status. The late start might put owners in a tough spot.

Patriots DE Trey Flowers left the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a concussion. The team quickly announced that he had entered the protocol. We saw a couple of preseason instances where a player was reported to have entered the league protocol but turned out to not have a concussion. Barring a return today, though, Flowers figures to be monitored all week and a question mark for Week 3.

Patriots DE Trey Flowers didn't appear in a single preseason game and put in limited work throughout training-camp practices because of an undisclosed injury. But MassLive's Andrew Callahan reports that Flowers is expected to play in Week 1. "Yeah, man. That's the plan," Flowers said Sunday. "I play football, so it's time for football to be played." IDP owners should plan to use Flowers against the Texans. We'll adjust expectations beyond that if we see his playing time limited.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Cowboys have cut RB Bo Scarbrough. It's not a shocking development for a 7th-round pick, but it's noteworthy for the 228-pound former Alabama back with a 109.2 speed score. Scarbrough figures to at least land on a practice squad somewhere but doesn't merit any special dynasty consideration.

Steelers TE Jesse James left Saturday's preseason game against the Titans with a back contusion. It doesn't sound like a serious issue, and James hasn't been a prominent fantasy factor. But he stands to gain opportunity if Vance McDonald (foot) isn't ready for the regular-season opener. We'll keep an eye on the status of both players.

The Lions have opened training camp with DE Ezekiel Ansah on the PUP list and LB Devon Kennard on the non-football injury list. Ansah is still working his way back from spring knee surgery. Detroit has not revealed Kennard's injury, after the free-agent addition worked out with the team in the spring. According to the Detroit Free Press, Kennard is expected to be back before the regular season. We'll see when either player actually returns. The absences of 2 key pass rushers is tough for a defense that ranked 23rd in sack rate last season.
