Jarrett Boykin (groin, knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Vikings.
Davante Adams will again handle No. 3 duties himself. It's not a great matchup, as the Vikings have been playing solid pass defense with their CB trio of Xavier Rhoders, Captain Munnerlyn, and Josh Robinson. Boykin is droppable.
Odell Beckham (hamstring) is practicing Wednesday.
Beckham is on track to make his debut this week against the Falcons. The Giants want to see "some hard practices back to back" before clearing him to return. He's unlikely to be part of the gameplan in his first game back, but could be active as the No. 4 receiver. Beckham will start in three-wide sets once he gets acclimated in OC Ben McAdoo's scheme.
Colts LG Jack Mewhort (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 5 agains the Ravens.
Mewhort, the No. 59 overall pick in May's draft, has been a top-six pass-blocking guard at Pro Football Focus through the first month of the season. The Colts will turn to either Joe Reitz or Lance Louis at left guard depending on RG Hugh Thornton's (ankle) availability, or both could start.
Harry Douglas (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.
Douglas got in three full practices last week after hurting his foot in Week 3, but he ended up being inactive Week 4. It's fair to wonder if he suffered a setback. If Douglas is unable to play this week, Devin Hester will be the No. 3.
Knowshon Moreno (elbow) said he's four weeks away from returning.
"I probably got like four more weeks," Moreno said. "About four more weeks and I’ll be good." The Dolphins were hoping to have Moreno back in Week 6 when they come out of their bye. He's now targeting Week 8 against Jacksonville for his return. Lamar Miller will continue to be Miami's lead back for at least the next three games, with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams backing him up.
Ben Tate (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
It's part of the plan of easing Tate back into practice. Coach Mike Pettine said he expects Tate to progress to "full" participation by the end of the week. ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes Tate will "for sure" lead the Browns in carries this week against the Titans. He'll be a quality RB2 option.
Jonathan Stewart (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.
The Panthers are desperate for running back help, and coach Ron Rivera said he's hopeful Stewart will be able to suit up this week against the Bears. Stewart hurt his knee in Week 3 and was initially slapped with a month-long timetable. He's not going to be 100 percent, but the Panthers may need him to play. Stewart would be a mere RB3 while handling around a dozen carries.
Cecil Shorts (hamstring) says he's week-to-week.
He won't play this week against the Steelers. With Marqise Lee (hamstring) also out, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns will play every snap at receiver in a favorable matchup. Shorts has become far too injury-prone to hold in fantasy.
