Darren McFadden (ankle) was limited in Tuesday's practice.

Marcel Reece (hamstring, quadriceps) and Mike Goodson (ankle) were also limited. The Raiders confirmed that McFadden is expected back for Thursday's game versus the Broncos. According to RBs coach Kelly Skipper, McFadden has "got his burst back" and is "a lot better" this week. With Reece battling injuries of his own, McFadden should be assured of a fairly strong workload after waiting an extra five days for his return.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there is "optimism" Rashad Jennings (thumb) returns for Week 4.

There's optimism and urgency, as the Giants' unsettled backfield has lost Shane Vereen (triceps) for the season. Jennings was a surprising scratch on Sunday, so we'd still consider his status far from certain. He's unsure of his ability to contribute in the passing game, something that will be even more of a necessity with Vereen out. The Giants will issue their first injury report on Thursday.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Jeremy Langford has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle.

There were worries Langford could be dealing with an Achilles' issue after he was carted off Sunday evening, but he's dealing with merely a sprain. It's still likely of the "high" variety, and to cost Langford multiple games. Langford's absence is going to create an opening for rookie Jordan Howard to burst through. Howard needs to be added in all formats.

Speaking Monday, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said "there's a chance" Jamaal Charles (knee) returns for Week 4.

It's basically what Reid's been saying for weeks. We'd bet on Charles missing his fourth straight game, and for Spencer Ware to once again carry the mail in Kansas City's backfield. Charles' status will be updated no later than Wednesday.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports Antonio Gates (hamstring) "wasn't close" to suiting up against the Colts, and will likely miss another game.

Ace beat writer Michael Gehlken expects another "large workload" for Hunter Henry against the Saints. Gates was struggling mightily before getting injured in Week 2. He's not yet droppable, but owners need to be preparing for a season where he might not offer TE1 value.

Shane Vereen will miss the rest of the season with a triceps injury.

This is a shocking development after Vereen played over half the snaps and saw 13 touches Week 3 against the Redskins. It is unclear when the injury occurred. With Vereen out and Rashad Jennings (thumb) questionable, Orleans Darkwa is a must-add in every league. Bobby Rainey and rookie Paul Perkins deserve looks as well in deeper formats.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Thomas Rawls (fibula) will miss multiple weeks.

Carroll said Rawls' injury is "a little worse than we thought." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rawls has a hairline fracture. After taking a shockingly long time to recover from the ankle injury which ended his 2015 campaign, it is not a given Rawls will return anytime soon. Christine Michael is locked in as the No. 1 back in Seattle. He will be a solid RB1 even in a tough matchup with the Jets.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports Jared Cook's ankle injury is not season-ending.

Cooks was spotted on crutches and in a boot after being carted to the locker room Week 3 against the Lions. The concern is the injury is to the same foot which required surgery in June. Demovsky reports the Packers are still trying to determine if he is looking at a multi-week absence. The Packers are on bye this week before hosting the Giants in Week 5.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Russell Wilson has an MCL sprain.

Carroll said Wilson "feels great" and is recovering well, but he will wear a brace if he plays this week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday night Wilson expected to play this week against the Jets, and the confirmation of a sprain suggests that is still the plan. Still, Wilson's mobility was hindered even before this injury, and he has not proven to be a quality fantasy asset while hurt. He will be difficult to trust even in a good matchup.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the team will continue to use a backfield rotation even when Ryan Mathews (ankle) is healthy.

Pederson confirmed Mathews is dealing with some stiffness and swelling in the ankle he injured prior to training camp. He should be able to recover over the team's Week 4 bye, but he is looking at a timeshare with at least Darren Sproles and likely rookie Wendell Smallwood as well. Mathews is shaping up as a touchdown-dependant FLEX play at best.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson expects Zach Ertz (ribs) to play following the team's Week 4 bye.

Pederson also expects CB Leodis McKelvin to return. Dealing with a displaced rib, Ertz will have to gain full medical clearance before he can return, but he has the bye week to get fully healthy before the trip to Detroit. He will be a great option in that matchup.
Sep 26 - 12:06 PM

Pro Football Talk reports Adrian Peterson's (knee, injured reserve) "sole focus" is playing again this season.

Peterson is expected to miss a "minimum" of 3-4 months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus last week, but it would not be the first time Peterson beat an injury timetable. Peterson is officially able to return Week 11, but it would be surprising to see him before late December. Either way, the Vikings look headed for the playoffs, and Peterson might be able to help them once they get there.
