Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited at Thursday's practice.
ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan said earlier today that he expects Jennings to miss Monday night's game against the Vikings. Jennings' thumb injury affects his ability to block and catch passes, which is obviously a huge hindrance. With Shane Vereen (triceps) also out, it looks like Orleans Darkwa will lead the Giants' backfield in Week 4.
Eric Decker (shoulder) has yet to undergo an MRI.
It's unclear what the Jets are waiting for. Decker missed practice again on Thursday. Coach Todd Bowles has said he hopes the injury lingers for only one week. It's unclear what that means with regards to his Week 4 status. Fantasy owners need to plan on Decker sitting against the Seahawks.
Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervill (foot) confirmed that he will make his season debut against the Raiders in Week 4.
His teammate, Terrell Suggs, spilled the beans a day earlier. Dumervill had a setback late in training camp after undergoing offseason foot surgery. He'll return to a starting role at outside linebacker opposite Suggs.
Julius Thomas (elbow) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday morning's game against the Colts.
Thomas missed another practice Thursday, and is looking mighty shaky for Jacksonville/Indy's "Breakfast at Wimbledon" 9:30 AM ET tilt. We'll know early if Thomas is playing, but fantasy owners need a back-up plan. Injuries are always the risk with Thomas, who is a touchdown-scoring force when healthy.
DeSean Jackson (ankle) back at practice Thursday.
D-Jax will be listed as "limited" as the Redskins manage his reps. He'll be good to go for Sunday's juicy matchup with the Browns.
Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.
That puts him on track to play Sunday against Carolina. Sanu enjoyed a stellar debut in Week 1 but has been limited to six catches for 50 yards over his last two contests. He'll only be a WR4/5 this week.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the odds are "slim" J.J. Watt (back) returns this season, but that there are "no long-term concerns."
There were also no long-term concerns last spring. The reality is, Watt has a bad back, and it will be a concern until proven otherwise. The good news is, he has almost an entire year to get right. Watt turns 28 next March. He should bounce back in 2017.
Braxton Miller (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.
He was rehabbing off to the side. Miller won't have a chance to play this week unless he returns to at least a limited practice on Friday. The Texans will keep using an ineffective Jaelen Strong in three-receiver sets in Miller's absence.
