Tony Romo (back) will participate in the Cowboys' walkthrough on Saturday to gauge how he feels.

It is a step in the right direction, but we likely will not get any sure news on Romo until inactives are posted Sunday morning. VP Stephen Jones called Romo "very questionable" on Friday, and most signs point to Romo sitting against the Cardinals. Brandon Weeden took all the first-team reps in practice and will start if Romo cannot go.

Montee Ball (groin) is out against the Patriots Week 9.

Ball will not play against the Pats, but there is a chance he resumes practicing next week. It may not matter from a fantasy perspective as Ronnie Hillman has solidified himself as the clear-cut lead back in Denver. Ball is no longer a must-hold option in fantasy leagues.

Nov 1 - 9:14 AM

In last year's regular season meeting between the Broncos and Patriots, Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball combined for 44 rushing attempts, 264 yards, and a touchdown in a 34-31 New England victory.

Bill Belichick essentially conceded the run in the Patriots' win, consistently dropping 6-7 defenders into coverage and forcing Peyton Manning to throw into tighter windows in adverse weather conditions. Like last year's Week 12 meeting, Sunday's rematch is expected to involve high winds and rain. Further improving Ronnie Hillman's fantasy outlook is New England's 322 yards on 60 carries (5.37 YPC) allowed to opposing running backs since ILB Jerod Mayo went on I.R. two weeks ago.

Nov 1 - 12:45 AM

Brent Celek (back) is listed as probable for Week 9 against the Texans.

Celek was limited earlier in the week, but will be good to go for Sunday's game. The Eagles' in-line tight end has 12 catches through seven games.
Oct 31 - 8:35 PM

Juwan Thompson (knee) is probable for Week 9.

Thompson will be a touchdown-dependent RB4 against the Patriots. Ronnie Hillman (shoulder) is also listed as probable.
Oct 31 - 7:50 PM

Tom Brady (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Brady's ankle injury is a non-issue. He's a top-five quarterback for a likely shootout with the Broncos.
Oct 31 - 7:33 PM

49ers ILB Patrick Willis (questionable, toe) will be a game-time decision for Week 9 against the Rams.

Willis is hoping to return this week after practicing on a limited basis. He could end up missing just one game coming off the 49ers' bye. Willis shouldn't be on a snap count if active.
Oct 31 - 7:16 PM

Alex Smith (shoulder) is officially probable for Week 9.

Smith sprained his throwing shoulder last week. It's not expected to be a concern going forward. Smith practiced in full and will start against the Jets.
Oct 31 - 6:47 PM

Travis Kelce (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Kelce has been playing through a rib issue, but it shouldn't impact his snaps. He's a TE1 with scoring upside against a Jets' secondary that's allowed seven passing touchdowns over the last two games.
Oct 31 - 6:33 PM

Jamaal Charles (back) is probable for Week 9.

Charles practiced in full despite being listed with a back injury. He'll be a top-three running back play against the Jets.
Oct 31 - 6:22 PM

Cecil Shorts (groin) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Shorts will start Sunday against the Bengals. He's won't be more than a WR4 for fantasy purposes.
Oct 31 - 6:14 PM

Andre Ellington (foot) was upgraded to full in Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Week 9.

Ellington has a favorable matchup against a Cowboys' defense that will be without SLB Justin Durant. He's the No. 8 running back in our rankings this week.
Oct 31 - 6:01 PM

Michael Floyd (knee) is probable for Week 9.

Floyd suffered a minor knee injury last week, but didn't miss any practice time. With six teams on a bye, he'll be a WR2 for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Oct 31 - 5:54 PM

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said Friday that Tony Romo (back) is "very questionable" for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Romo didn't practice all week, but the Cowboys are holding out hope he can play and calling him a game-time decision. Brandon Weeden took all the first-team reps in practice and will start if Romo is ruled out.
Oct 31 - 5:39 PM

Geno Smith (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Smith was limited on Wednesday, but practiced in full the last two days. He should be available as Michael Vick's backup against the Chiefs.
