Latest Injury News

Christian Kirk (back) was removed from Arizona's injury report on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Kirk had gotten into a car accident earlier in the week and missed some practice time. He's fine for Week 3, however, he won't carry much fantasy value until Josh Rosen takes over for Sam Bradford.

Marvin Jones was added to the Week 3 injury report with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: The injury limited Jones in practice Friday. The extent of the injury isn't known, but it happened at some point during practice this week. He was a surprise addition to the injury report, an unpleasant one for fantasy owners. If Jones were to miss this game, Kenny Golladay could see even more targets as the team's deep threat.

Fantasy Impact: Godwin has been limited this week due to the injury, and Auman believes he could see a questionable tag as a result. Still, Auman feels Godwin looked good through the week, noting that the toe injury didn't seem to impact him. While Godwin is the third WR on the Bucs, the team could make him relevant given the prolific play of the offense combined with the awfulness of the defense.

Cole Beasley enters the weekend questionable due to an ankle injury suffered during practice this week.

Fantasy Impact: Beasley suffered the ankle injury on Wednesday and it limited him the rest of the week. At this point, there's no indication that he'll be sidelined for Week 3's matchup with the Seahawks. Still, owners who are considering him should monitor his status leading up to kickoff. Beasley has been inconsistent so far this season, coming out of the gate strong in Week 1 before being a non-factor Week 2.

Aaron Rodgers is listed as questionable to play Week 3 against Washington.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers has yet to practice this week, but he's expected to get in a workout and test the knee Saturday. As long as all goes well, he's expected to suit up against Washington. He'll continue to play through the injury, and he admitted earlier this week that it could worsen as the season continues. While this could limit his DFS usage, Rodgers will continue to be started in season-long leagues.

Josh Gordon is questionable to play Week 3 against the Lions due to his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon has returned to practice and would likely suit up under normal circumstances, but with a new playbook to learn following a mid-week trade, it's unclear if he'll make his Patriots' debut against the Lions. Given the game is Sunday night, owners considering Gordon should have a backup plan in place.

Larry Fitzgerald is listed as questionable for Week 3 due to a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzgerald suffered the injury in Week 2. He missed practice Wednesday but returned in a limited capacity to end the week. Given the Cardinals' struggles to start the season, Fitzgerald isn't the same strong play he was expected to be entering the season. Arizona will face a tough defense in the Bears Week 3, further limiting Fitzgerald's upside.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Dolphins WR Devante Parker (finger) has been removed from the Week 3 injury report. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Per Rapoport, Parker was removed from the Week 3 injury report and should be "ready to go" for Sunday's matchup against the Raiders. However, per Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel, Dolphins HC Adam Gase remains "noncommittal" about the bust wideout's Week 3 playing status, telling reporters "we'll see." Even if Parker is active, I don't think he is a trustworthy fantasy asset. The Dolphins have yet to allow Ryan Tannehill to drop back more than 28 times this season, which means targets are hard to come by amongst a crowded wide receiver depth chart.

Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst (foot) has been ruled out for the team's Week 3 matchup with the Denver Broncos has he continues to recover from a stress fracture in his foot. (Source: Baltimore Ravens)

Fantasy Impact: Hurst has yet to debut for the team that drafted him in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft after suffering a stress fracture in his foot in late August. His original timeline for return was three-to-four weeks, which would make a return against the Steelers in Week 4 possible. Monitor his status next week to see if he is able to practice.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (heart) is officially ruled out for Week 3. (Source: Panthers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Samuel will miss his second straight game on Sunday against the Bengals. However, since he is out due to a medical related illness (heart), there is no timetable for his return. Jarius Wright and D.J. Moore should continue to see an uptick in targets in Samuel's absence.

Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. is reporting RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was removed from the Week 3 injury report. (Source: Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After practicing in a limited capacity on Wednesday, Bernard practiced in full on Thursday. Removed from the Week 3 injury report, Bernard is good to go for Sunday's tilt versus Panthers. With Joe Mixon out, Bernard is expected to garner the lion's share of the Bengals running back touches this week. He is an upside RB2 for Week 3.

Baltimore Ravens running back Alex Collins (illness) was not listed on the team's official injury report on Friday and is set to play in the team's Week 3 matchup with the Denver Broncos. (Source: Baltimore Ravens on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Collins missed Wednesday's practice with an illness but returned on Thursday and was expected to be fine. Friday's injury report confirms his status, although he will be going up against a tough Denver Broncos defense after two subpar performances. For the season, Collins has rushed 16 times for just 48 yards and a touchdown while catching four passes for 61 yards.

Broncos quarterback Case Keenum, who had been limited in practice earlier in the week with a knee injury, was not listed on the team's official injury report on Friday and is good to go for Sunday's matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. (Source: Denver Broncos)

Fantasy Impact: It was expected all along that Keenum would be able to play, but his removal from the injury report altogether is a great sign. For the season, he has completed 44 of 74 pass attempts for 551 yards, three touchdowns, and four interceptions while also rushing for 16 yards and a touchdown.

Keke Coutee (hamstring) is questionable for Week 3 against the Giants. (Source: Texans on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It looks like the rookie wide receiver will miss his third straight game to start the season as he has yet to have a full practice. Coutee is not worth owning in fantasy except for dynasty formats.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's matchup with the Green Bay Packers. (Source: Washington Redskins)

Fantasy Impact: Richardson was questionable heading into Week 2 with a shoulder injury but was ultimately able to play. He was able to practice on a limited basis this week, which makes it likely that he will be able to suit up in Week 3, as well. Still, monitor his status heading into Sunday when the team releases their official list of inactive players.

Evan Engram (ankle) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game in Houston. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Engram was limited in practices the previous two days but made it back to full participation Friday. Fantasy owners should feel confident in starting Engram in all fantasy leagues in Week 3.

Sammie Coates (hamstring) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Giants. (Source: Pat Leonard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Coates was a DNP in Week 2 against the Titans after going into the game as questionable. It looks like a similar scenario going into Week 3 as Coates was limited all week. Fantasy owners should be finding other options at WR.

Marcus Mariota (elbow) is questionable for Week 3 against the Jaguars. (Source: Jim Wyatt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Coach Mike Vrabel said Friday that the team will make a decision on Mariota in the next 24 hours. Don't be surprised if the team goes with Blaine Gabbert for one more week at QB so Mariota can get healthier. Fantasy owners wanting to start Mariota should keep an eye on updates leading up to Sunday.

Devonta Freeman has been ruled out for the Falcons' Week 3 contest against the Saints due to his knee injury.

Fantasy Impact: This was expected. The real question will be if Freeman is able to return in Week 4 or if he'll require more time to recover from his knee injury. In his place, Tevin Coleman will continue to be a strong fantasy option. He'll be a solid RB2 with RB1 upside.

Ted Ginn dealt with a knee injury that has limited him this week at practice, but he was removed from the team's injury report ahead of their Week 3 contests against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: Ginn told reporters that he expected to play earlier in the week, and that appears to be the case as the Saints prepare for the Falcons. There have been questions around the Saints' WRs, but that hasn't involved Ginn, who's seen a healthy 13 targets in the early going. A home run threat on every play, Ginn has provided some surprising consistency over the first two weeks and should continue to be one of Drew Brees' top targets this weekend in what could be a high-scoring affair with the Falcons.
