Pro Football Talk reports Bears OLB Willie Young requested a trade following the departure of Jared Allen last week.
Young was active and played snaps Week 4 against the Raiders after being a healthy scratch Week 3. Like Allen, Young has been miscast as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but he would be a great addition for a 4-3 team in need of pass rush help. Young is scheduled to make base salaries of $2.45 million this year and next.
Packers WR Davante Adams said he plans to be "smart" with his injured ankle.
"I’m just trying to pretty much take it day-by-day," Adams said. "The last thing I want to do is – I came back last time and re-aggravated it so I’m just trying to be smart." Adams did not practice at all leading up to Week 4, and his comments make it sound like he could miss more time. Ty Montgomery caught 3-of-6 targets for 15 yards playing in place of Adams.
Cowboys WLB Sean Lee was forced from Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Saints and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Lee took a hit to the helmet in the second quarter. His return should be considered questionable. Damien Wilson replaced Lee on the weak side.
Saints RG Jahri Evans reportedly required a knee scope recently.
Evans missed Week 3 and was inactive Sunday night against Dallas. Evans' play has fallen off a cliff recently, so the Saints are likely hoping the procedure will help get him right. Evans should be considered week to week.
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after Sunday's Week 4 loss that David Johnson "played like a rookie today."
Johnson totaled 81 yards and scored a 23-yard receiving touchdown, but Arians wasn't happy with the third-round pick's performance. "He dropped a touchdown pass pass, he fumbled a ball, and he played like a rookie today," Arians said. Johnson operated as the Cardinals' passing-down back behind Chris Johnson. It's possible that role will go back to Andre Ellington next week.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the team will "take it day-to-day" with Andrew Luck (shoulder).
"He was trending in the right direction throughout the course of the week," Pagano said. "We were going to evaluate him, see how he felt. Just wasn’t ready." The fact that the decision came down to Sunday is good news for Luck's ability to play Thursday night, but nothing can be taken for granted. Pagano said Luck will work out Monday to see how far he is in his recovery.
Making his NFL debut, Stefon Diggs caught 6-of-10 targets for 87 yards in the Vikings' Week 4 loss to the Broncos.
With Charles Johnson sidelined, Diggs tied Mike Wallace for the team lead in targets. Diggs created a ton of space against the Broncos' elite defense, and flashed the play-making ability that earned him a day-three flier out of Maryland. Diggs has no re-draft value, but remains worth stashing away in Dynasty leagues.
Adam Thielen caught 6-of-8 targets for 70 yards in Minnesota's Week 4 loss to the Broncos.
With Charles Johnson (ribs) inactive and Jarius Wright (hand) glued to the sideline, Thielen was the Vikings' No. 2 receiver. Thielen has stepped up for a team that's needed him the past two weeks, but there's nothing resembling re-draft value here.
