The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes the Packers need to commit to Aaron Jones as their lead back.

With Aaron Rodgers potentially out for the year, the Packers are expected to be more run heavy behind Brett Hundley. Jones rotated with Ty Montgomery last week, but continued to outplay him. Montgomery is averaging 3.2 YPC with one run over 10 yards. He's also struggled on first downs, with three negative and six zero-yard rushes. The Packers need to start Jones and ride him to keep pressure off Hundley and the pass game. It's possible Jones takes over the backfield in Week 7 against the Saints.

C.J. Prosise (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's his first practice since going down in Week 3. Coach Pete Carroll expects Prosise to play Sunday against the Giants. Prosise's return could reduce J.D. McKissic to a reserve role.

The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer conceded Wednesday he "wouldn't be surprised" if Andrew Luck (shoulder) missed the entire season.

Keefer's Indy Star colleague, Stephen Holder, also suggested Luck is no lock to play again this year following the setback in his surgically repaired shoulder. To put it frankly, the Colts lied to their fanbase. Owner Jim Irsay stated as late as the final week of preseason that Luck had a chance to play in Week 1, and the Colts activated Luck from the PUP list in what was perceived as a sign he would play inside the first seven weeks. None of those things happened, and the team is now claiming a setback. Luck should have been dropped in re-draft leagues long ago. At this point, we expect Jacoby Brissett to be the Colts' rest-of-season starter.

George Kittle (back, elbow) is practicing fully for Week 7.

Kittle has dealt with multiple injuries this year, but hasn't missed any games. He's on the streaming radar for Week 7 against the Cowboys.

Branden Oliver (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Broncos.

It looks like Oliver is finally ready to return after sitting out the past two weeks with a hamstring injury. He's merely a change-of-pace option behind workhorse Melvin Gordon.
Oct 18 - 6:59 PM

Melvin Gordon (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury for Gordon. The limited practice suggests it's a non-issue for Week 7. Gordon struggled against Denver earlier this year, but the Broncos are coming off a 100-plus yard game to Orleans Darkwa.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed he doesn't expect Teddy Bridgewater (knee) to play this week.

"We still don’t know where it’s going to go, where that’s going to lead," said Zimmer. "Everybody is excited about Teddy being back, but he’s got a ways to go. He’s probably not going to play this week, so we need to put the brakes on things a little." Bridgewater drew raves from teammates in his first practice since 2015. He's been working in with the first-team offense, but Bridgewater is at least a week away from returning. Case Keenum remains on track to start against Baltimore.

John Brown (quad) has been removed from the Cardinals' injury report.

J.J. Nelson (hamstring) was also removed. Brown's bad quad is officially a thing of the past. The fourth-year wideout has scored in back-to-back weeks, though he's eclipsed 50 yards in only one of his four contests this year.
Oct 18 - 6:12 PM

Andre Ellington (quad) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Ellington should be able to play through the injury, though his window of fantasy relevance has already come and gone now that Adrian Peterson has seized control of the Cardinals' backfield. He'll be limited to passing-down work Sunday against the Rams.
Oct 18 - 5:59 PM

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Saints.

It's an indication that Montgomery made it through Sunday's game without any setbacks. Now splitting work with Aaron Jones, Montgomery finds himself on the RB2/3 borderline for Week 7 against New Orleans.
Oct 18 - 5:51 PM

Julio Jones (hip) was removed from the injury report.

Jones looked fully healthy despite getting just seven targets last week. The Falcons plan to increase his role going forward. Jones is a good bet to find the end-zone in Sunday's matchup with the Patriots.
Oct 18 - 5:21 PM

Matt Forte (knee, toe) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Forte looked healthy in his return to action last week, out-touching rookie Elijah McGuire 17-10 in a loss to New England. With Bilal Powell (calf) still absent from practice, look for Forte and McGuire to split reps again Sunday versus Miami.
Oct 18 - 5:20 PM

Corey Davis (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

Coach Mike Mularkey said Davis could play this week, but he's still not practicing. The good news is he's not an early rule out. Davis looks likely to return after Tennessee's Week 8 bye.
Oct 18 - 5:14 PM

Rex Burkhead (ribs) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

Burkhead looked close to returning in Week 6, but was a late-week downgrade. He's still yet to get in a full practice since going down. Mike Gillislee has been playing well the last few weeks, so Burkhead's role will be up in the air when healthy.
Oct 18 - 5:11 PM

Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Snead played just 21 snaps in his season debut. He's not fully over his hamstring issue and still getting worked into the offense. Snead won't be more than a WR4 for a Week 7 matchup with the Packers.
