Bilal Powell left the Jets' Week 4 game against the Dolphins with a groin injury and is questionable to return.
Powell had one catch for 12 yards before exiting. Zac Stacy took the field on a third and long, suggesting he'll be the passing-down back if Powell is unable to return. Chris Ivory has dominated New York's backfield work so far with 16 carries for 89 yards and a touchdown.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday morning that "it would not be surprising" if the Cowboys turned to Matt Cassel in Week 5 should Brandon Weeden struggle Sunday night at New Orleans.
Weeden severely limits Dallas' offense and has lost nine straight starts. Cassel wouldn't add a new dimension, but the Cowboys may feel he's a more savvy game manager. This potential move obviously hinges on Weeden's performance in a spot where he has a great matchup against a swiss-cheese New Orleans pass defense.
Brent Grimes left Sunday's game against the Jets with a right knee injury and is questionable to return.
Grimes came up lame covering Brandon Marshall on a quick screen pass and quickly limped off the field. He looked to be in a fair amount of pain and wasn't wearing his helmet on the sideline. Jamar Taylor is next up on Miami's cornerback depth chart.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday at Washington.
Schefter did acknowledge, however, that he doesn't know whether Murray will start over Ryan Mathews or Darren Sproles. Sproles started last week's game, but Mathews ended up handling the majority of the workload. With Murray back in a difficult matchup against the run-tough Redskins defense, all Eagles running backs are shaky Week 4 fantasy starts on the road with uncertain usage.
The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports Arian Foster (groin) is not expected to handle a full workload Sunday in Atlanta.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported something similar earlier Sunday, stating Foster would see "limited/specialty snaps" against the Falcons, in an effort to ramp up for a "full load" next Thursday night against the Colts. Still, Foster seems likely to be mixed in for double-digit touches in a plus matchup. We'd be hard pressed to leave him out of RB2/flex spots.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears are "optimistic" Jay Cutler (hamstring) will start Week 4 against the Raiders.
Cutler was limited in practice all week and split reps with Jimmy Clausen. The Bears are probably rushing to get Cutler back in the lineup after Clausen's disastrous start in Seattle last week, "leading" the offense to 10 punts on 10 possessions. If Cutler plays, it's a big boost to both Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett.
Appearing on NFL GameDay Morning, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the Eagles "do plan to play" DeMarco Murray against the Redskins.
We're seeing conflicting reports, with ESPN's Britt McHenry reporting earlier in the morning that it would be a "surprise" if Murray suited up Week 4. FedEx Field is one of the worst playing surfaces in the league, and has been pounded with rain the past couple days. If Murray plays, he'd at least be at some risk for a re-injury, but it sets up as a game to hammer the run. Treat him as a game-time call.
According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Bears are open to trading Matt Forte.
While La Canfora's source said the price for Forte would be high and not just a salary dump, that could change as the October 28 trade deadline nears. Forte is in a contract year and unlikely to be part of the Bears' rebuilding movement. At this point, La Canfora said it would take at least a second or third-round pick to move Forte. That's a steep price for a running back who turns 30 in December.
