Date: Team: Pos:

Kenny Britt (hip) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

The Rams' nominal No. 1 receiver will be good to go as a WR5 against the Seahawks' Legion of Boom on Sunday.
Oct 30 - 7:40 PM

Cardinals SS Tony Jefferson (concussion) has been cleared for Week 9.

Jefferson has started three of the Cardinals' past four games, and should make it 4-of-5 against the Cowboys.
Oct 30 - 7:38 PM

Profootballtalk reports Panthers RE Greg Hardy's trial for domestic abuse has been postponed until after the season.

The trial had been set for mid-November. It's unclear if or how this will affect Hardy's indefinite suspension, though NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports it means Hardy won't play this season. He'll surely argue that he should be allowed to suit up as his legal situation plays out. The Panthers' defense has desperately missed Hardy's dominating presence off the edge.
Oct 30 - 7:13 PM

Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is active for Week 9 against the Panthers.

Graham is still operating at less than 100 percent, but looked far more comfortable in Week 8 than he did in Week 7, catching five passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. He's Rotoworld's No. 3 tight end for Week 9.
Oct 30 - 7:07 PM

DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is active for Week 9 against the Saints.

Coach Ron Rivera has already said that D-Will will get the "start" after being sidelined for four weeks, but he'll form a committee with Jonathan Stewart. We'd consider J-Stew the slightly better fantasy play, though neither is an inspiring FLEX option for Week 9. Inactive for the Panthers are LT Byron Bell, RG Trai Turner, RB Fozzy Whittaker, OG Amini Silatolu, slot CB Bene Benwikere, WR Philly Brown and S Thomas DeCoud. UDFA David Foucault is getting the start on Cam Newton's blindside.
Oct 30 - 7:02 PM

Saints RBs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas (shoulder) are inactive for Week 9 against the Panthers.

Robinson made the trip to Charlotte, and is looking good for a Week 10 return. Thomas remains week to week. Also inactive for the Saints are FB Austin Johnson, LB David Hawthorne, C Jonathan Goodwin, WR Nick Toon and CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste. Mark Ingram will again serve as the Saints' exclusive early-down hammer, with Travaris Cadet picking up Thomas' pass-catching slack.
Oct 30 - 7:02 PM

Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 9.

The ineffective role player played through his hamstring injury in Week 8, and avoided setbacks. Hemingway is off the fantasy radar.
Oct 30 - 6:40 PM

Jamaal Charles is on the Week 9 injury report with a back injury, but is practicing in full.

Charles isn't injured. He's a top-three option against the Jets in a game the Chiefs should control from start to finish.
Oct 30 - 6:39 PM

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

The WR5/6 will be fine for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Oct 30 - 6:36 PM

Cecil Shorts is listed on the Week 9 injury report with a groin issue, but is practicing in full.

Shorts tweaked something in last week's loss to the Dolphins — apparently his groin — but only missed 2-3 snaps. Even with six teams on bye for Week 9, Shorts is best utilized as a WR4 in standard leagues.
Oct 30 - 6:34 PM

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson is listed on the Week 9 injury report with a knee issue, but is practicing in full.

He'll be good to go for Sunday's showdown with the Pats. Thompson is an RB4 entirely reliant on vulturing scores from Ronnie Hillman.
Oct 30 - 6:32 PM

Michael Floyd is listed on the Week 9 injury report with a knee issue, but practicing in full.

Floyd tweaked his knee against the Eagles, but remained in the game. Particularly with six teams on bye this week, owners have to shake off Floyd's Week 8 doughnut and fire him up as a high-upside WR2.
Oct 30 - 6:28 PM

Jets RB Chris Johnson says he has "nothing to be excited about or look forward to" because he isn't playing enough.

Ever the team player, Johnson said he doesn't want to be viewed as a "complainer," but then went on to heartily complain about his role. "This is the first time I've ever felt this type of frustration, but there's nothing I can really do about it right now," Johnson said. Averaging just eight touches over his past five games, Johnson is managing a modest 4.0 yards per carry this season. Considering his usage, that number should be much higher. A shell of the player who rushed for 2,000 yards in 2009, Johnson will soon be out of the league if he can't accept that he's a role player at this stage of his career.
Oct 30 - 6:09 PM

Trent Richardson (hamstring) is absent from the Week 9 injury report.

It means he's all-systems-go for Monday's game against the Giants after being limited to emergency duties in Week 8. Speaking Thursday, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he planned to employ his standard two-back attack of Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw in New York. That should mean 15-20 touches for T-Rich, and looks around the goal-line. Richardson is an RB2 for Week 9 despite his 3.5 YPC.
Oct 30 - 5:56 PM

Tony Romo (back) will wear extra padding if he's active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

It's something Romo has done often in the past as he's battled through all manner of ailments. Romo has yet to practice this week, and it's unclear if he'll do so on Friday. Another missed practice won't necessarily mean he won't suit up against Arizona, but it will leave him as a game-time decision, at best.
