  • LAC Running Back #30
    On an online stream by Ekeler, he stated that there is a “long time between now and Monday Night Football vs the Cowboys, so expecting to be back by then for sure.” Ekeler has been out the last three weeks with an ankle injury, practicing in a limited capacity last week before being declared out. A Week 5 bye will give Ekeler time to rest and return for a Week 6 MNF matchup against the Cowboys.
  • LAR Wide Receiver #10
    McVay explained Kupp is listed as limited on the team’s injury report, adding “it says limited, he’s not going to be limited.” Kupp will go through a normal practice despite his limited designation on Wednesday. He was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury prior to the Week 1 and just had his 21-day practice window opened by the Rams. McVay’s comments indicate Kupp is pretty much at a full-go in practice, boding well for his Week 5 status. Kupp will likely be eased into games, but Puka Nacua’s fantasy value takes a hit with Kupp’s return.
  • DEN Wide Receiver #10
    Jeudy was removed from Denver’s injury report prior to Week 4’s game against the Bears. There was no indication of Jeudy tweaking his knee in the game, but he is back as a limited participant this week. The Broncos are likely lightening his workload in the early-week practice, so no cause for concern yet. Barring a drastic change with his knee, expect Jeudy to play in Week 5.
  • PHI Defensive Tackle #91
    Cox has been experiencing discomfort in his back over the past couple weeks. The epidural injection procedure he underwent this week aims to decrease the pain with the expectation that he will miss not more than one game, if any. If he cannot go in Week 5 against the Rams, Cox expects to return Week 6 against the Jets.
  • LAR Quarterback #9
    Stafford’s X-rays came back negative after the Rams’ Week 4 win over the Colts. Sean McVay called the injury a hip contusion on Monday. A full practice to open the week suggests the injury is nothing to worry about. Stafford ranks second in the NFL in passing yards but only has three touchdowns. He will look to up his touchdown total in a potential shootout with the Eagles in Week 5.
  • DEN Running Back #33
    Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter from earlier in the week, Williams is not expected to miss “much if any time.” However, a missed practice session to open the week suggests he will be sidelined for at least one week. Samaje Perine will draw the start in his place and could provide RB3 numbers. UDFA rookie Jaleel McLaughlin made the Broncos’ roster after receiving some hype during the summer. He saw some extra reps after Williams went down last week and turned his 10 touches into 104 total yards and a touchdown. He will be a risky FLEX option in Week 5 but is worth stashing in deeper leagues.
  • HOU Running Back #31
    Pierce touched the ball 25 times for 108 yards in the Texans’ Week 4 win over the Steelers. Given the extreme usage he saw, it doesn’t look like the knee issue was bothering him on Sunday. The limited session is likely just maintenance for a high-volume running back. Pierce should suit up as a fantasy RB2 in Week 5 versus the Falcons.
  • LAR Running Back #23
    McVay was quick to mention that the move was precautionary, likely meaning they are simply giving Williams some rest. That likely welcome news for the young running back since he has seen the highest usage rate of any running back in the NFL, including Christian McCaffrey. McVay did say that he expects Williams to play on Sunday against the Eagles.
  • SEA Safety #33
    An independent concussion doctor ruled Adams out after he took an accidental knee to the head from Daniel Jones on a scramble. When the concussion doctor ruled him out for the remainder of the game, Adams lost his temper and had to be physically separated from the doctor and escorted off of the field. There’s no word on what the discipline could be but considering Adams didn’t make physical contact with the doctor, a hefty fine figures to be most likely.
  • SF Wide Receiver #19
    Deebo played through the pair of issues in Week 4 but was not targeted. he logged three rush attempts for six yards. Still, he was on the field for his normal allotment of routes, so it doesn’t look like the injuries are causing him any issues. Barring any setbacks, he will rank as a WR2 versus the Cowboys.
