Antonio Gates (illness) remained sidelined Thursday.

Gates played just 11-of-56 snaps in Week 2. It's fair to wonder if he makes it through the entire season on the Chargers' 53-man roster.

Christian Kirk (back) was held out of Thursday's practice as a precaution after getting in a car accident on Wednesday.

He was rear-ended on the highway by a woman who attempted to hit and run, though Kirk followed her and took down her license plate number. Kirk doesn't appear to be hurt and should be fine for Week 3 against the Bears. The rookie remains off the re-draft radar.

Cole Beasley was added to the Cowboys' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with an ankle issue.

The Cowboys' No. 1 passing game weapon was apparently injured in Thursday's practice. As of now, there's no indication he will sit out Sunday's game against the Seahawks, but Friday's practice will tell the tale.

Buccaneers CB Brent Grimes (groin) is practicing in full for Week 3 against the Steelers.

He'll be back to shore up a Bucs secondary that has yielded over 300 yards in back-to-back weeks. Grimes will do his best to slow down Antonio Brown, though obviously quieting the best receiver in football is a Herculean task.

Steelers CB Joe Haden (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 3 against the Buccaneers.

Haden is expected to return Monday night against Tampa Bay after sitting out Week 2 with a minor hamstring injury. Patrick Mahomes eviscerated the Steelers' secondary in his absence last week, beating them for 326 yards and six touchdowns on 23-of-28 passing.
Sep 20 - 4:24 PM

Chris Godwin (toe) was limited at Thursday's practice.

Godwin's toe injury doesn't appear to be anything serious. We'd expect him to see his usual snaps Monday against Pittsburgh. With teammate DeSean Jackson off to an impressive start, Godwin is just a back-end WR3 for fantasy purposes.
Sep 20 - 4:23 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick is listed on the Week 3 injury report with a knee issue but is practicing in full.

Fitzpatrick wasn't listed last week so it's a new "injury." There's been zero indication Fitz will be slowed against the Steelers, where, inexplicably, he can be fired up as a QB1 streamer.
Sep 20 - 4:22 PM

Dalvin Cook (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Cook has been claiming he is fine and will be active against the Bills, but his practice participation is telling a different story. It would be far from surprising if the Vikes decided they did not need to risk a setback against the expansion-level Bills. We would consider Cook likely to sit at this point. That would make Latavius Murray a borderline RB1.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Tomorrow's practice will be important to monitor for Cook's Week 3 availability, but he'll be a risky play in DFS even if he's active. The Vikings are 16.5 point favorites, making Cook's PPR upside extremely limited when you combine that with the team not wanting to risk further injury in a potential blowout. Latavius Murray will jump into cash game consideration if Cook is ruled out, and he still has a lot of tournament upside if Cook is active. He's cheap across all DFS sites and is a strong correlation play with the Vikings defe

Josh Gordon (hamstring) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Gordon is expected to play against the Lions, but his involvement figures to be limited, more because of playbook considerations than his hamstring "injury." Gordon's upside is self evident, but so is his Week 3 downside. He's a high-risk, high-reward WR4 for his Patriots debut.
Sep 20 - 4:15 PM

Rob Gronkowski (ankle) was added to the injury report as a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

We don't know much about Gronk's injury at the moment and knowing the tight-lipped Patriots, that might remain the case. Late-week additions to the injury report are never a good sign, but there's no real reason to worry yet. On the off chance Gronk sits, it would open up targets for Chris Hogan, James White, etc. etc.
Sep 20 - 4:15 PM

Will Fuller (hamstring) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Fuller avoided setbacks in his Week 2 return. He will be an upside WR3 in a plus matchup with the Giants.
Sep 20 - 4:12 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (thumb, ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Hopkins is fine. Even if he draws Janoris Jenkins' shadow, Hopkins will be an elite WR1 against the Giants.
Sep 20 - 4:11 PM

Updating an earlier report, T.J. Yeldon (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

That puts Yeldon on track to play Sunday against Tennessee. With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) expected back, Yeldon will likely revert to a change-of-pace role in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:08 PM

Derrick Henry (back) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

There's been no indication Henry is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Jaguars. From both an opponent and game-flow standpoint, the matchup could not be more poor. Henry is a fringe RB3 for Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:05 PM

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Jeffery is making progress but remains "highly doubtful" for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. With Jeffery a long shot to play and Mike Wallace (knee) also sitting, look for Carson Wentz to feed Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz early and often.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Jeffery looking pretty doubtful this week, Wentz will rely heavily on Nelson Agholor and Zach Ertz. Both should be cash game considerations in DFS. Agholor's just way too cheap on most DFS sites and should see 10-15 targets, while Ertz is priced up a little more but is still one of the safest TE's on this slate. A Wentz/Agholor/Ertz stack in tournaments has a ton of upside and could be lower owned than higher game total stacks in NO/ATL and KC/SF.
