Shark Bites

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.

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.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. So is WR Travis Benjamin (abdomen). Both entered the day questionable. Neither is a worthwhile fantasy option, though.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will start Sunday's game against the Chiefs, HC Sean McDermott announced on Wednesday. It was McDermott's only move if he wanted his team to believe that he's trying to win this season. Taylor played well in relief of QB Nathan Peterman last week and finished as a top-12 fantasy QB in 3 of his last 4 starts.

Broncos TEs A.J. Derby (shoulder) and Jeff Heuerman (knee) are out for this weekend’s game against the Bengals. TE Virgil Green will soak up snaps but remains a desperation fantasy play.

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said Monday that he expects MLB Denzel Perryman to play Sunday against the Jaguars, though he said he wasn't sure how much, according to multiple reports. Perryman missed the 1st half of the season after surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left ankle. He suffered the injury in the team's 1st preseason game. Perryman figures to take snaps away from MLB Hayes Pullard., The uncertain status -- along with Jatavis Brown's iffy situation as he manages an ankle sprain -- leaves all Chargers LBs basically unusable for a solid tackle matchup coming out of their bye. We'll see if coaches give out more info as the week wears on to clear up the situation.

Chargers DT Corey Liuget (back) is inactive for today's game against the Broncos. He's not a terrific IDP option when healthy, so his status shouldn't affect fantasy lineups. S Adrian Phillips (neck) is active but hasn't seen consistent enough playing time yet to be an IDP option.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. He didn’t practice on Friday after hurting the shoulder in Thursday’s workout. We never heard a whole lot of concern about it, though. Allen’s matchup is a bigger issue than the shoulder. He’s just a WR3 for Week 7.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers expect WR Keenan Allen to play today. The wideout hurt his shoulder in practice this week and turned up questionable but should be OK to use in a tough matchup with the Broncos.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (shoulder) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Broncos. He injured his shoulder in Thursday's practice and was sidelined on Friday. "He fell down yesterday in practice, and that's sore," HC Anthony Lynn said, adding that he's "very hopeful" Allen will be able to play. We'll be looking for an update on his status on Sunday morning because Chargers-Broncos doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) will make his NFL debut against the Raiders today. The rookie figures to be on a snap count and play a limited role. He's not a fantasy option this week but is worth stashing in deeper leagues as a potential 2nd-half asset.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) is expected to make his NFL debut next week against the Raiders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 7th overall pick of this spring's draft missed almost all of the offseason but has been practicing since mid-September. He figures to open in a limited role but could see more action down the road -- especially with the Chargers already sitting at 0-4. Williams is worth a stash if you have a free roster spot.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (back) put in a limited practice on Friday -- his 1st official workout of the season. He's out for this weekend's game against the Dolphins, but he's at least making progress. Williams is worth monitoring and could become a waiver-wire target in October.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t on the final Week 1 injury report. He’ll start against the Jets on Sunday. Despite the plus matchup, we’d only trust Taylor in 2-QB leagues.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has cleared the concussion protocol, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Barring a setback, he'll start against the Jets on Sunday. That's a tasty matchup, but we have Taylor ranked as a QB2 after a disastrous offseason for the Bills offense.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) returned to practice on Monday. He was likely limited to individual drills but is making tangible progress through the protocol. Consider him a better than 50/50 bet to be cleared in time for Sunday's opener vs. the Jets.

Bills HC Sean McDermott admitted Monday that QB Tyrod Taylor's status for this weekend's opener against the Jets is "up in the air." He remains in the concussion protocol after sustaining the head injury 9 days ago. We'll track his progress, but Taylor shouldn't be in your Week 1 plans. QB Nathan Peterman would draw the start on Sunday if Taylor isn't cleared. The rookie completed just 54.4% of his passes and averaged only 5.7 yards per attempt this preseason.
