Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.
Gates reportedly wasn't even close to playing Week 3 at the Colts. His body appears to just be breaking down at 36 years old. Rookie Hunter Henry will make another start in what looks to be another plus matchup.
Coach Pete Carroll said he "would be surprised" if Russell Wilson (knee) doesn't play Week 4 against the Jets.
Wilson is "pretty determined" to play through the sprained MCL and has been waking up in the middle of the night for treatment this week. A live-in specialist has been staying at his home. He'll be a low-end QB1 at less than 100 percent, on the road for a 1 PM ET start, and against a tough front four.
Bengals CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 4 against the Dolphins.
Kirkpatrick has been one of the least effective corners in the league since the beginning of last season, but it's still a loss for Thursday night against DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Look for Darqueze Dennard to get the start opposite Adam Jones with Josh Shaw entering in sub-packages.
Tyler Eifert (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 4 against the Dolphins.
He's aiming for a Week 5 return. C.J. Uzomah and Tyler Kroft will split snaps.
The Oakland defense turned in an improved performance in Week 3, sparked by rookie SS Karl Joseph.
The Raiders finally installed Joseph in the starting lineup in Week 3, and the rookie responded with a team-high 10 tackles. After getting destroyed in consecutive games to begin the season, the Oakland defense held Tennessee to just 10 points while forcing three turnovers. The Raiders D/ST isn't an advised fantasy option in Week 4 at Baltimore, but this group has plenty of talent and should round into shape shortly.
The Denver defense has recorded at least three sacks in each game this season.
The Broncos wrapped up Cincinnati's Andy Dalton four times in Week 3 despite the Bengals attempting to limit the impact of the Denver pass rush. "They were committed to the run, chipping us and doing those type of things. But then at the end of the day, we had four sacks out of our two outside guys between Shane (Ray) and Von (Miller)," said coach Gary Kubiak. The Broncos D/ST will be a top-tier fantasy option at Tampa Bay in Week 4.
Isaiah Crowell (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
He's probably just dealing with a bruise. Crowell is third in the league in rushing and is averaging a robust 6.1 YPC. He has a splendid Week 4 date with the Redskins, who have been gashed by DeAngelo Williams, Shane Vereen, and Ezekiel Elliott the past three weeks. Crowell is a strong RB2.
Jets DE Lawrence Thomas has a torn labrum in his shoulder.
The Jets are waiting to see if he needs surgery. If he doesn't, Thomas would still be sidelined multiple weeks. The UDFA is likely headed to I.R.
