Kenny Stills Injury Updates | Shark Bites

The Texans are releasing WR Kenny Stills, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. Still has caught just 11 balls this season and missed Week 12 with a quad injury. We'll see where he latches on, but he's obviously a long shot to provide any fantasy value the rest of the year.

Texans WR Randall Cobb suffered a toe injury "considered significant" in Sunday's win over the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's set to undergo additional testing but "is set to miss games," Rapoport adds. Houston also lost WR Kenny Stills to a leg injury yesterday. That left Keke Coutee as the #3 WR.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Texans WR Brandin Cooks "is a true game-day decision" with his quad injury. "But he has improved the past 24 hours, and there's optimism he'll play" in the Thursday night opener, Pelissero adds. In most cases you should still skip over Cooks for your fantasy lineup. Even if he plays, Cooks would likely be at an elevated risk for re-injury, and there have already been murmurs about the Texans limiting his Week 1 role. If Cooks doesn't play, Kenny Stills would likely start in his place. Treat Stills as merely a DFS option, though, outside of deep leagues.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that Texans WR Will Fuller (groin), WR Kenny Stills (knee) and TE Darren Fells (hip) will all be active for today's game against the Chiefs. Fuller will remain risky in his return from a multi-game injury. QB Deshaun Watson, however, will have his near-full group of weapons. TE Jordan Akins (hamstring) looks like the only regular piece missing. His absence helps Fells, who saw a season-high 7 targets in the Week 6 meeting with Kansas City.

NFL Network's James Palmers hears from "multiple sources" that Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is a "real long shot" for Saturday's game against the Bills. He's listed as questionable after a limited week of practice and was labeled a game-time decision by HC Bill O'Brien. Fuller's injury was originally expected to cost him 3 weeks, though, so it's not a surprise that he's not expected to play. We'll get his official status around 3 pm ET on Saturday. Kenny Stills will operate as Houston's #2 WR if Fuller is out.

Texans WR Will Fuller is "likely" to miss 3 weeks with his groin injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So he'll miss Sunday's regular-season finale and should be considered doubtful for the Wild Card Round. We'll see about Fuller's status beyond that. Kenny Stills will step in as Houston's #2 WR in the meantime.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR Will Fuller isn't expected to play today against the Broncos. Fuller is nursing a recurring hamstring injury that rendered him questionable for the game. If he sits, WR Kenny Stills would likely see more playing time and spend more of it on the outside. That grows his upside for a matchup that should find Denver's clear top corner, Chris Harris, shadowing DeAndre Hopkins all day. The Broncos' other outside CB, Isaac Yiadom, grades out as easily the poorest of the team's top 3 in coverage, according to Pro Football Focus.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (hamstring, ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. We're frankly surprised he did anything at all after pulling up lame with a hamstring injury last week. Stills at least has a shot to play against the Falcons on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Texans WR Kenny Stills suffered a hamstring injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Panthers and is officially questionable to return. Stills' absence leaves Keke Coutee as Houston's #3 WR.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills returned to practice on Tuesday. He missed about 1 week with an ankle injury, but he's fully expected to play Week 3 of the preseason vs. Baltimore. Back healthy, he’ll have a shot at leading Miami in targets — especially with DeVante Parker dealing with a broken finger.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills left practice on Thursday with a back injury. He's still expected to suit up vs. Tampa Bay, per beat writer Armando Salguero. We'll track this situation up to game time.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his left knee on a non-contact play in Thursday's training-camp practice. That's the knee in which he partially tore his ACL last December. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that the team is "concerned" about Tannehill's injury. We should learn more over the next 24 hours. Tannehill is no more than a QB2 in fantasy football, but his loss would hurt WRs Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Matt Moore is Miami's backup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Dolphins WR Kenny Stills' back locked up on him in Monday's practice and that the injury is "not considered serious." That's awesome news after what sounded like a potentially serious injury. Stills has been building momentum all offseason and looks like Miami's #2 WR to open the season. We'll see when he's able to get back on the practice field.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's practice. The team hasn't provided an update, but the report from the Palm Beach Post's Joe Schad doesn't sound good. "Stills was running a pass route when he pulled up at the end and collapsed along the right sideline in considerable pain," Schad writes. "At one point, Stills did grab the back of a his leg." We'll update Stills' status when we learn more. He had emerged as Miami's #2 WR.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been sidelined for the past 3 days with a hamstring issue. He ran off to the side of Thursday's practice but didn't look close to 100%, according to insider Omar Kelly. "Might take some time," Kelly added. We'll see exactly how long Parker is out as Miami installs HC Adam Gase's offense. His absence is affording WR Kenny Stills more 1st-team reps.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills returned to practice on Monday. The Miami newcomer missed roughly 2 weeks with a calf injury, but it was never considered serious. He remains on the radar as a late round flier.

Per team insider Omar Kelly, Dolphins WR Kenny Stills has been dealing with a left calf injury since June. It’s limited him early in camp, but it doesn’t sound like a long-term issue. “The players know their body the best. They are the guys out there, so we’re utilizing him as often as possible,” HC Joe Philbin said of Stills. “If something is not right, we’ll cut it back a little bit.” The 1st year Dolphin looks like a fantasy WR4 in such a loaded passing game.

The Saints have placed WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) on IR.  He was originally expected to be back in 4-6 weeks, so it's possible that the injury turned out to be more serious than initially thought.  It shouldn't impact his 2015 offseason or fantasy outlook, though.  Cooks finishes his rookie campaign with 53 catches, 550 yards and 3 TDs in 10 games -- a 16-game pace of 85-880-5.  Cooks also rushed for 73 yards and a score.  He's sitting 25th among WRs in non-PPR fantasy points and 22nd in PPR.  The Saints will move forward with Marques Colston and Kenny Stills as their clear top 2 WRs.

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) was held out of Thursday's practice after putting in a limited workout on Wednesday.  He's having trouble shaking this quad injury and seems unlikely to play against the Falcons this weekend.

Saints WR Kenny Stills believes his injured quad will be a "primary focus" throughout the season, according to insider Ramon Vargas.  The injury requires rest, but "there’s no time I’m not doing anything," Stills said.  It's certainly a concern for his 2014 fantasy output and will need to be monitored all year.  The good news is that you got Stills for dirt cheap in your draft.  He'll have plenty of upside whenever he's on the field.
