Theo Riddick (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Riddick suffered a setback with his hamstring in Sunday's win, leaving his status up in the air for Week 5. He could see carries behind Reggie Bush this week with Joique Bell (concussion) sidelined. Riddick will be updated again on Thursday.

Marvin Jones tweaked his ankle on Wednesday and was listed as "DNP."

Jones can't catch a break. After missing all of the offseason program with an ankle injury, Jones returned to training camp for all of one practice before breaking his foot. In his first official practice back from the broken foot on Wednesday, Jones hurts his ankle. He was initially expected to make his season debut this week against New England, but now Jones' status is up in the air.
Oct 1 - 4:13 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Falcons are just managing his reps. Jones is a top-five receiver option despite a difficult matchup with the Giants in Week 5.
Oct 1 - 4:04 PM

Coach Ron Rivera said Darrin Reaves is currently the Panthers' starting running back.

With DeAngelo Williams (ankle) and Mike Tolbert (leg) out and Jonathan Stewart (knee) still working his way back, Reaves is next up on the depth chart, followed by Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker. Reaves (5-foot-7, 209) is an undrafted rookie out of UAB, but was a favorite by some in the draft community. For owners in a bye-week or injury crunch, Reaves is worth a grab for Week 5 against the Bears. He won't be the full-time ball carrier, but should lead a committee attack.
Oct 1 - 4:01 PM

Vernon Davis (back) will not practice Wednesday.

Davis says his back is still experiencing spasms and remains day to day. He should be considered questionable for Week 5. At less than full health, Davis will be a touchdown-dependent TE1 if active.
Oct 1 - 4:00 PM

Marquise Goodwin (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 5.

Barring any setbacks, he should be cleared for Sunday's game against the Lions. A situational deep threat, Goodwin has zero targets through three games.
Oct 1 - 3:57 PM

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley expects WR Ace Sanders to play in Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Sanders hasn't been able to practice the first four weeks due to his suspension, but will be asked to step in right away with Marqise Lee and Cecil Shorts both sidelined by hamstring injuries. He should see the majority of snaps in three-wide sets over Mike Brown.
Oct 1 - 3:51 PM

Coach Jeff Fisher announced that Austin Davis will be the Rams' starting quarterback moving forward.

Fisher says there will be "no short hook." After initially claiming Shaun Hill would resume the starting job once 100 percent healthy from a Week 1 thigh injury, Fisher has changed course. Rightfully so. Among quarterbacks with at least 90 pass attempts, Davis is tops in the league with his 72.3 completion percentage. He's averaging a healthy 8.0 YPA with a 3:3 TD:INT ratio. He's had a couple back-breaking turnovers, but Davis has generally moved the offense pretty well. Davis has a plus matchup against the Eagles this week, but is still a QB2. Davis isn't the long-term option past 2014. The Rams should know that.
Oct 1 - 3:31 PM

Jeremy Maclin (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 5.

Maclin tweaked his hammy against the 49ers last week but is in zero danger of missing a tasty matchup at home against the Rams. He's a weekly WR1.
Oct 1 - 3:15 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw did not practice Wednesday.

Bradshaw was in a walking boot after Sunday's game, but the Colts are holding him out for rest purposes. He should return to at least a limited practice Thursday. Bradshaw will be an RB2/FLEX option in Week 5 against the Ravens.
Oct 1 - 3:09 PM

Carson Palmer will seek a second opinion on the nerve issue in his throwing shoulder.

After signs of progress last week when Palmer threw on the side at practice, his status for Week 5 is headed back downhill. Palmer was reportedly noticeably down on Monday when he tried to throw on the side. It appears better than 50:50 that Drew Stanton will get another start. Arizona will be cautious with Palmer.
Oct 1 - 3:04 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Packers.

Bridgewater missed practice Monday and Tuesday before the Vikings went through a walkthrough on Wednesday. The No. 32 pick in May's draft is looking like a full-blown game-time decision for Thursday night. Coach Mike Zimmer said the team has plans in place if Bridgewater can't go. Christian Ponder would start.
Oct 1 - 3:00 PM

Brandon Marshall (ankle) is practicing in full Wednesday.

It's great news after coach Marc Trestman said Monday that the Bears would have to take a "good look" at Marshall's health this week. Playing on one leg the past two games, Marshall has caught a total of three passes fro 25 yards as more of a decoy. Marshall will have to avoid setbacks the rest of the week, but it's looking like he'll be healthier for Week 5 against the Panthers.
Oct 1 - 2:56 PM

Calvin Johnson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Johnson was essentially a decoy in Sunday's win over the Jets, so it's not surprising that the Lions are getting him rest. He'll likely be limited in practice again this week, but is expected to play against the Bills. Johnson's status will be updated on Thursday.
Oct 1 - 2:54 PM

Joique Bell (concussion) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Bell suffered a concussion in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Jets. Fantasy's No. 38 running back, Bell is averaging just 3.2 YPC on 48 totes through four games. He's averaging a meager 33 yards rushing per game the past three weeks. Bell is day-to-day. If he can't play, Reggie Bush will handle the majority of the work against the Bills. Bell has been a big-time disappointment.
