Panthers CB James Bradberry (turf toe) is listed as questionable for Week 8.
Bradberry was limited in practice all week, and on Friday coach Ron Rivera said the Panthers won't know his availability until Saturday as team doctors work on a cleat to give Bradberry's toe additional support. Beat writers seem skeptical Bradberry will play against the Cardinals, projecting Leonard Johnson as the new starting slot corner with Robert McClain and Daryl Worley outside.
NFL suspended free agent WR J.J. Worton six games for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.
Who? Exactly. Worton began serving the suspension two weeks ago and is eligible to return November 22. The former Central Florida wideout was convicted of three assault and battery charges after indecently touching two women at a bar and then punching a man in the face for confronting him about it. Worton spent time with the Rams this past offseason.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Browns.
Seferian-Jenkins did very little this week in practice and is at least another week away. In the interest of both ourselves and readers combing through blurbs upon blurbs, effective immediately we are implementing a policy that no future blurbs will be written about ASJ until he does something legitimately noteworthy.
Tevin Coleman (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Packers.
As expected. He's week to week after not practicing at all since getting hurt last Sunday. Devonta Freeman is expected to carry a full workload and has a chance to handle 25-30 touches as a surefire, lock-and-load RB1.
Jerick McKinnon (ankle) is out of his walking boot Friday.
McKinnon was in a boot on Thursday and didn't practice. It's unclear what McKinnon's practice status for Friday is as of right now, but getting out of the boot is a positive development. The Vikings' final injury report comes out of Saturday with them facing the Bears Monday night. Even if McKinnon plays, he'll be limited, leaving Matt Asiata as the preferred fantasy play.
Marquise Goodwin (concussion) is out for Week 8 against the Patriots.
He was the only source of offense for Buffalo last week against the Dolphins. The Bills are at least getting Robert Woods (foot) back in the lineup, but Goodwin was their field stretcher on the outside. Woods mans the slot, and now Justin Hunter will likely have to play more snaps against Malcolm Butler.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Patriots.
McCoy didn't practice at all this week and isn't going to play. Because the Bills were stupid enough to push McCoy to play against the Dolphins last week, they're now without him in a much tougher game. Mike Gillislee should get the start at running back and handle 15-18 carries at the very least.
Browns CBs Joe Haden (groin) and Jamar Taylor (groin) are questionable for Week 8 against the Jets, but both are expected to play.
Haden missed last week's tilt with the Bengals, and Andy Dalton and A.J. Green predictably shredded this unit for big afternoons. Haden figures to see plenty of Brandon Marshall, though Marshall remains a steady WR1.
