Latest Headlines

Chargers coach Norv Turner said Thursday that Ryan Mathews (neck) hasn't improved to the point where he can practice, and added "missing a Wednesday and Thursday sets a player back."

It's the second straight day Turner has stopped well short of guaranteeing Mathews will be ready to roll against the Broncos, and signals he could be headed toward a game-time decision. We'll know more when Friday's injury report is released, but owners shouldn't assume Mathews is going to play until Turner emphatically says so. The Bolts don't play until 4:25ET Sunday, so we won't know Mathews' status early if he ends up a game-time call. Jackie Battle would likely handle early-down and goal-line work with Ronnie Brown working on passing downs if Mathews sits out.

Braxton Miller (hamstring) is out for Week 4 against the Titans.

Miller hasn't practice since going down with a hamstring injury in Week 2. He's week to week. The Texans will use DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Jaelen Strong in three-wide sets on Sunday.

Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to miss his third straight practice Friday, but coach Rex Ryan is "hopeful" he travels for the team's game to New England.

Ryan still offered no assurances about Watkins' Sunday status. Most signs suggest he will miss his second straight game.

Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited at Thursday's practice.

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan said earlier today that he expects Jennings to miss Monday night's game against the Vikings. Jennings' thumb injury affects his ability to block and catch passes, which is obviously a huge hindrance. With Shane Vereen (triceps) also out, it looks like Orleans Darkwa will lead the Giants' backfield in Week 4.

Julius Thomas (elbow) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday morning's game against the Colts.

Thomas missed another practice Thursday, and is looking mighty shaky for Jacksonville/Indy's "Breakfast at Wimbledon" 9:30 AM ET tilt. We'll know early if Thomas is playing, but fantasy owners need a back-up plan. Injuries are always the risk with Thomas, who is a touchdown-scoring force when healthy.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the odds are "slim" J.J. Watt (back) returns this season, but that there are "no long-term concerns."

There were also no long-term concerns last spring. The reality is, Watt has a bad back, and it will be a concern until proven otherwise. The good news is, he has almost an entire year to get right. Watt turns 28 next March. He should bounce back in 2017.

Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) both were at practice Thursday.

Both were limited on Wednesday. It was just a walkthrough, but it is looking more and more likely Garoppolo will play Sunday. He will be a solid streaming option at home against the Bills.

Lions OC Jim Bob Cooter said Golden Tate will see more targets moving forward.

Targets are not really the problem for Tate, who is on pace for 117 through three games. The problem is he is averaging just 7.2 yards per reception a season after gaining just nine yards per catch. Tate has the after-catch skills to break a couple big plays, but his usage limits his yardage upside. Marvin Jones will remain the clear No. 1 in Detroit.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant (knee) will not practice Thursday.

It is not surprising. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has said Bryant is a "long-shot" to play against the 49ers, and he could be looking at a multi-week absence. Cole Beasley and Brice Butler are interesting names in deep leagues.

Sammy Watkins (foot) is not practicing Thursday.

Watkins was expected to test out his foot either Wednesday or today, so his absence is not a great sign. It is possible he returns to the practice field Friday, but his Week 4 chances are not looking good.
Sep 29 - 11:51 AM

Eric Decker (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

Decker was on the field, but he did not even stretch with the team. His absence is not surprising considering he was headed for an MRI after missing Wednesday's session. It is extremely unlikely he suits up this week. Quincy Enunwa should see a big bump in targets with Decker sidelined, and he is available in a ton of leagues.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said the team will "make sure" Brandon Marshall gets the ball.

"I’m sure (defenses are) paying attention to him; they were paying attention to him last year," Bowles said. "We just have to find better ways to get him the ball." Marshall does have 27 targets through three games, but he has caught just 12 of those for 160 yards and, most concerningly, zero touchdowns. Marshall places the blame on the offense "trying to be scientists" instead of just playing. With Eric Decker looking likely to miss some time with a shoulder injury, Marshall will have to be more effective moving forward.
