Vincent Jackson (ribs) is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Vikings.
V-Jax practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and is expected to play against Minnesota. His status will be worth rechecking Sunday morning, however. On the off chance Jackson were unable to suit up for Week 8, the Bucs would turn to Mike Evans and Louis Murphy as their starting wideouts.
Kyle Rudolph (sports hernia) has been ruled out for Week 8.
As expected. Rudolph will continue to be replaced by Chase Ford as Minnesota's primary pass-catching tight end. Rudolph has resumed doing football activities. He may have a chance to return following the Vikings' Week 10 bye.
Benny Cunningham (knee) is listed as probable for Week 8.
Cunningham will be part of St. Louis' three-man RBBC in Sunday's clash with Kansas City. His actual workload will be determined during the game.
Kenny Britt (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 8 at Kansas City.
Although Britt is no longer a useful on-field player, the Rams have justified his presence in the starting lineup as critical to their team "leadership."
The Rams are expected to start undrafted rookie Marcus Roberson at cornerback in Week 8 at Kansas City.
Roberson will start opposite sixth-round rookie E.J. Gaines, with Janoris Jenkins (knee) and Trumaine Johnson (knee) both listed as questionable, but not expected to play. It's a boost to the matchups of Dwayne Bowe and Alex Smith. Smith is worth a look as a QB1 streamer.
Bears RCB Kyle Fuller will play through a broken hand and hip pointer in Sunday's Week 8 game at Foxboro.
We're interested to see how effective he's capable of being against Tom Brady & Co. Hips and hands are obviously crucial body parts for cornerbacks.
Browns NT Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 8.
The Browns previously feared Rubin might need year-ending ankle surgery, but he practiced on a limited basis this week and will give it a go Sunday versus the Raiders. The Browns are still without LE Phil Taylor (knee scope).
Despite listing him as doubtful on the injury report, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said A.J. Green (toe) looked to be in "football form" off to the side of Friday's practice.
Green didn't actually participate, but the Bengals are ostensibly pleased with his progress. Per beat reporter Coley Harvey, Lewis "sounded a little optimistic" about Green "possibly giving it a shot Sunday." That's hard to believe considering his doubtful tag, but stranger things have happened. The Bengals are absolutely desperate for playmakers in their injury-riddled offense.
