Mark Ingram underwent surgery to have two screws inserted into his broken hand.

Ingram suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Browns, but played through it. It was a displaced fracture, so there was no way he could play through it this week. Coahc Sean Payton doesn't expect Ingram to miss much time. Khiry Robinson will handle to lead-back duties while Ingram is out.

T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Hilton must have suffered the injury in Monday night's loss to the Eagles. He should be considered day to day.
Sep 17 - 3:11 PM

Dexter McCluster (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's a good sign that McCluster is practicing, but his Week 3 status remains uncertain. If McCluster misses time, it would create an opportunity for rookie Bishop Sankey to get an expanded role.

Rod Streater (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

Streater suffered a hip flexor in the Week 2 loss and underwent an MRI on Monday. The Raiders like to keep injury news close to the vest, so we're not expecting to hear much on Streater before the weekend. Consider him questionable.

Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not practice Wednesday.

Speaking on Monday, MJD didn't sound optimistic about his chances of playing against the Patriots. If he can't go, Darren McFadden would get the start, with Marcel Reece and Latavius Murray spelling him in the backfield.

Robert Woods (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury for Woods, who played 47-of-59 snaps last week. His status will be updated again on Thursday.
Sep 17 - 2:49 PM

Sammy Watkins (ribs) is practicing in full this week.

Watkins had to come off the field multiple times in Week 2, but didn't have any setbacks. He's an upside WR3 for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers.

Ravens rookie DT Timmy Jernigan has a "meniscus issue" that could force him to miss one or two games.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens hope Jernigan will avoid surgery and be able to play through the injury after a week or two of rest. Jernigan has played 31 defensive snaps across Baltimore's first two games, filling in admirably against the run. DeAngelo Tyson and Christo Bilukidi will have to step up.
