Chargers RE Corey Liuget suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

Oct 1 - 8:02 PM

Donnie Avery (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Avery is likely dealing with a multi-week injury. He should be considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Oct 1 - 7:42 PM

Jake Locker (wrist) expects to play Sunday against the Browns.

Locker returned to practice Wednesday and was throwing with "no issues." Barring a setback, he should return after missing last week's start against the Colts. Locker will be just a low-end QB2 option.
Oct 1 - 7:38 PM

Joseph Fauria (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

He remains week to week. Rookie Eric Ebron is coming off a breakout 3/34/1 line against the Jets and will continue to have an expanded role.
Oct 1 - 7:33 PM

Rob Gronkowski (knee) is practicing in full for Week 5.

It's the first time Gronkowski hasn't been listed as limited all season. Gronk played 31-of-50 snaps (62 percent) in Monday night's loss. The fact that the Patriots are no longer limiting him in practice suggests he's close to returning to an every-down role.
Oct 1 - 7:11 PM

Andre Ellington (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Ellington had been getting Wednesdays off, but was upgraded to limited coming off the Cardinals bye. He'll be an RB2 in Week 5 against the Broncos. Ellington is averaging 45 snaps and 18 touches per game through four weeks.
Oct 1 - 7:04 PM

Jerick McKinnon (ankle) is probable for Thursday night's game against the Packers.

McKinnon was limited on Monday and Tuesday with the Vikings playing on a short week. He's an upside FLEX play for Week 5.
Oct 1 - 6:44 PM

Markus Wheaton (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury for Wheaton, but not one that should hold him out of Sunday's game. Wheaton has 19 catches for 227 yards through four weeks.
