NFL Recent Player News
|10/26/2016||Russell Wilson, Sea, QB|
|Wilson was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, listed with knee and pectoral injuries.
Analysis: It's the first time this season that Wilson has not been a full participant in practice. Wilson suffered a sprained ankle and sprained knee in games earlier in the season but still managed to participate fully in practices during the week. Wilson was listed as having a right pectoral injury coming out of last Sunday's 6-6 tie with Arizona.
|10/26/2016||Bilal Powell, NYJ, RB|
|Powell (turf toe) missed practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Powell was limited to nine snaps last week, possibly due to the toe problem, so his availability for Sunday's game against the Browns is uncertain. Before not being targeted once last week, he had been a reasonable flex option in PPR leagues with 21 receptions in the previous four games.
|10/26/2016||Brandon Marshall, NYJ, WR|
|Marshall (foot) was among 12 Jets players who sat out practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Marshall hasn't missed any games but has been dealing with a sore foot for a few weeks. He's not expected to sit out Sunday game against the Browns. Marshall has been quiet lately with only three catches in each of the past two weeks for a combined 109 yards and no touchdowns.
|10/26/2016||C.J. Anderson, Den, RB|
|Anderson is seeking a second opinion on his injured right knee after his best performance of the season sparked Denver's 27-9 win over the Texans on Monday night. The Broncos are unsure how long he might be out.
Analysis: Anderson, who signed a four-year, $18 million contract in the offseason, bruised his right knee on his final carry of the first quarter Monday night, an 11-yard run. He returned to the game, however, and ran 14 more times for 84 yards, finishing with a season-best 107 yards on 16 carries. Coach Gary Kubiak said Anderson was sore Tuesday and went for medical tests. He missed Wednesday's practice to seek a second opinion.
|10/26/2016||C.J. Spiller, Sea, RB|
|Spiller was released by the Seahawks on Wednesday.
Analysis: Spiller was signed on Sept. 28 but became expendable after the return of rookie C.J. Prosise, who was targeted to be Seattle's third-down running back but was sidelined after the season opener by a broken hand. Spiller caught an 8-yard touchdown pass in his first game with the Seahawks but had just three carries in two games and was inactive for Sunday's game against Arizona as Prosise returned.
|10/26/2016||Tajae Sharpe, Ten, WR|
|Sharpe (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Jaguars.
Analysis: Sharpe was limited in practice Wednesday and is not a good fantasy option. He did have four catches for 59 yards last week, but that was the first time in six games that he topped 50 and he's yet to score a touchdown.
|10/26/2016||Matt Jones, Was, RB|
|Jones was held out of practice Wednesday with a knee injury, putting his availability for Sunday's game against the Bengals up in the air.
Analysis: Coach Jay Gruden says Jones reported soreness while moving laterally and pain when cutting. If Jones is unable to play, Gruden considers undrafted rookie Robert Kelley his best option to start with Chris Thompson continuing his role as the third-down back.
|10/26/2016||LeSean McCoy, Buf, RB|
|McCoy spent practice working out on his own to test a nagging left hamstring injury, leaving his playing status uncertain against New England on Sunday
Analysis: Coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that McCoy is receiving treatment and his progress will be monitored through the week. McCoy was hurt in practice a week ago, but played into the third quarter before being pulled from a 28-25 loss at Miami on Sunday.
|10/26/2016||Phillip Gaines, KC, CB|
|Gaines returned to practice Wednesday and appears on track to return for Sunday's game at Indianapolis.
Analysis: Gaines, Kansas City's primary nickel back, has missed the past two games with a knee injury. His expected return should help out a secondary about to face a tough matchup against Andrew Luck.
|10/26/2016||D.J. White, KC, CB|
|White will miss Sunday's game at Indianapolis after undergoing surgery for a fractured hand.
Analysis: The rookie sustained the injury during last week's win over New Orleans and could be out several weeks. White had been working as the Chiefs' nickel back with Phillip Gaines sidelined the last two games by a knee injury.
|10/26/2016||Tony Romo, Dal, QB|
|Romo participated in throwing drills at Wednesday's practice for the first time since injuring his back during the preseason.
Analysis: It's a positive step in the oft-injured Romo's recovery from a broken bone in his back, though his return still remains a ways off. With the Cowboys having won five straight with rookie Dak Prescott under center, there's no rush to get the 36-year-old back.
|10/26/2016||Julius Thomas, Jax, TE|
|Thomas is listed as questionable for Thursday.
Analysis: Thomas did not practice Tuesday due to an ankle injury that has been lingering over the last few weeks. He was upgraded to a limited workout participant on Wednesday. Thomas has 16 catches for 196 yards and two touchdowns in five games.
|10/26/2016||Jared Odrick, Jax, DT|
|Odrick is listed as questionable for Thursday's tilt with Tennessee because of a quad injury.
Analysis: Odrick played last week after being questionable with a hip injury but he was listed on Wednesday's injury report with a quad issue. He did not practice Tuesday and Wednesday. In four games this season, Ordrick has eight tackles and one sack.
|10/25/2016||Cody Latimer, Den, WR|
|Latimer passed concussion protocol Monday but was a healthy scratch and should be back this week.
Analysis: Latimer has three catches for 22 yards on the season.
|10/25/2016||Brandon Marshall, Den, LB|
|Marshall is day to day with a strained left hamstring for the Broncos.
Analysis: Marshall could be replaced by Corey Nelson when the Broncos face San Diego on Sunday on a short week for the second time in 18 days.
|10/25/2016||Bacarri Rambo, Mia, S|
|Rambo has signed with the Dolphins to reinforce depth in the secondary following safety Reshad Jones' season-ending shoulder injury.
Analysis: Rambo is entering his fourth NFL season. He started eight games last season for the Bills, and has 11 starts.
|10/25/2016||A.J. Derby, Den, TE|
|The Broncos acquired Derby from the Patriots on Tuesday in exchange for a 2017 fifth-round pick.
Analysis: Playing behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett, Derby played just 36 snaps in four games with New England this season while not making a catch. But his preseason production - 15 receptions for 189 yards and a TD - is roughly what the Broncos' tight ends have managed this season. Virgil Green, John Phillips and Jeff Heuerman have a combined 17 catches for 183 yards and a touchdown. Broncos GM John Elway called Derby "a young tight end who can help us immediately."
|10/25/2016||Stevan Ridley, Atl, RB|
|The Falcons added insurance for injured running back Tevin Coleman on Tuesday by signing Ridley.
Analysis: Ridley has 2,907 yards rushing and 22 TDs on the ground in five seasons with the Patriots and Jets.
|10/25/2016||Matt Elam, Bal, S|
|The Ravens have designated Elam as the team's player to return from injured reserve.
Analysis: The 2013 first-round pick will be first eligible to play in Baltimore's Thursday night home game against Cleveland on Nov. 10. Elam missed all of last season with a biceps injury and began this season on IR recovering from knee surgery.
|10/25/2016||Phillip Dorsett, Ind, WR|
|Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Dorsett (hamstring) could be on the field for Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: The 2015 first-round pick sat out Sunday's win at Indianapolis with the injury but has a chance to make it back for this week's matchup with Kansas City. Dorsett is averaging 19.5 yards on 13 catches through six games this season.
