Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Friday that LT Russell Okung (concussion) is "on pace" to play Monday night against the Texans.
Okung was able to participate in some portions of Friday's practice. He'll get another chance to practice on Saturday, and the Broncos will likely hold a walkthrough on Sunday, at which point their decision to rest or play Okung figures to be made. Okung will be needed to block Whitney Mercilus.
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Carson Palmer (hamstring) looked "fine" at Friday's practice.
Arians said Palmer made all the throws that he needed to. Most of Palmer's reps on Friday came in the pistol formation but Arians said he'll be used normally on Sunday. In a tough matchup against the Seahawks, Palmer won't be a recommended fantasy play for Week 7. Arizona's receivers (with the possible exception of Larry Fitzgerald) will also be hard to trust.
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians revealed Friday that John Brown (questionable, hamstring) is dealing with pain in his leg that stems from a sickle-cell trait.
Brown did not participate in Friday's practice. Arians said team doctors are "working in a solution," but it sounds like Brown is in legitimate danger of missing Sunday night's game against the Seahawks, where he would have been a shaky fantasy option anyway. Brown isn't 100 percent, and neither is his quarterback, and he would be likely to draw a lot of Richard Sherman in coverage. It's a good week to park Brown on your fantasy bench.
DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a full practice on Friday.
Hopkins will be all systems go for Monday night's clash with the Broncos.
Arian Foster (hamstring) is questionable for Week 7 against the Bills.
He's practiced fully this week and is obviously in no danger of sitting out Sunday's game against Buffalo. Foster is nearing 100 percent, but his role in the Dolphins' running game is still up in the air. Last week he was out-touched 26-5 by second-year back Jay Ajayi. Until Foster shows signs of life, he won't be worth using in fantasy.
Browns coach Hue Jackson said Friday that there's "a chance" Terrelle Pryor (hamstring, questionable) will play at Cincinnati.
Pryor didn't practice at all this week due to his hamstring injury and appears to be a game-time decision. If Pryor can't give it a go, Gary Barnidge would become a very intriguing DFS option and Rashard Higgins would start opposite Ricardo Louis, with Andrew Hawkins continuing to man slot receiver.
Bills first-round OLB Shaq Lawson (shoulder, PUP) will be activated for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Dolphins.
Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Lawson will be available in "spot duty," which implies that he'll be on a snap count. It's been a long-time coming for the first-round pick. Sunday will mark Lawson's NFL debut after needing almost five months to recover from shoulder surgery. In his absence, Lorenzo Alexander has emerged as one of the better pass-rushing linebackers in football.
Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) is doubtful for Week 7 against the Jets.
He hasn't resumed practicing and remains week to week. Smith's absence will open up more looks for both Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken. Wallace will be employable as a WR3 this week against a beatable Jets' secondary.
