Willie Snead Injury Updates

Ravens WR Willie Snead (ankle) is active for today's game against the Titans. Snead sat out Week 17 after leaving the Week 16 win early. But he returned for limited practices Thursday and Friday. In most cases, there's not enough upside to Snead to make him worth the re-injury/limited-use risk.

Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 8 injury report and will play against the Bears on Sunday. He got just 21 snaps and 3 targets in his lone appearance this season and can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups right now.

Saints HC Sean Payton said Wednesday that WR Willie Snead is over his hamstring injury and ready for this weekend's game against the Lions. Snead served a 3-game suspension to open the season and then missed the Dolphins game in London before a Week 5 bye. We're expecting him to step back into a role similar to the one that's propelled him to top 35 PPR finishes both of the past 2 seasons. Snead is worth firing up as a WR3 -- albeit with some risk -- in Week 6 lineups.

Saints WR Willie Snead was added to the injury report on Friday with a hamstring. He was limited in practice and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The good news is that we'll find out Snead's official status by 8 am ET, but the hammy will obviously add risk to his outlook if he's active.

Saints WR Willie Snead (toe) is inactive for tonight's game against the Falcons. We don't have any details on his injury, but he didn't practice at all this week. His absence tonight gives rookie WR Michael Thomas a big opportunity. He's a WR3 with upside tonight.

Saints WR Willie Snead was held out of Thursday's practice with a toe injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it. Snead has an extra day to get ready for Monday night's game against the Falcons, but don't consider him a lock. We'll have another update on his status tomorrow.

ESPN's Mike Triplette called Saints WR Willie Snead a "surprise addition" to the injury report Wednesday. The wideout missed at least the open team portion of practice with a knee injury. We'll keep an eye on his status this week, but Snead played all the way through Sunday's win over the Giants.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Saints WR Marques Colston suffered a separated right shoulder "at the least" in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. There reportedly also could be structural damage. We'll see what the timetable is for this injury, but it certainly sounds like he'll miss some time -- perhaps a while. That can only help the target numbers for WRs Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks, plus the RBs. Losing Colston for any amount of time shouldn't hurt fantasy owners. He has made little impact through 5 weeks. Feel free to drop Colston if you see help on your waiver wire.
