NFL Recent Player News
|10/24/2016||Perrish Cox, Ten, CB|
|Cox is in the concussion protocol and likely will not be cleared to play Thursday night when the Titans (3-4) host the Jaguars (2-4).
Analysis: Either Valentino Blake or Brice McCain could start in place of Cox.
|10/24/2016||Quinton Spain, Ten, G|
|Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey says Spain has a bruised bone in his right knee and will miss up to four weeks.
Analysis: Mularkey said Monday the injury is serious but not as significant as the Titans had feared. Spain was carted off the field in the second quarter of a 34-26 loss to Indianapolis.
|10/24/2016||Larry Fitzgerald, Ari, WR|
|Fitzgerald set season highs with nine catches on 14 targets for 70 yards in Sunday night's 6-6 tie against Seattle. He extended his streak of consecutive games with at least one catch to 186 games, which ties Hines Ward for the fourth-longest streak in NFL history.
Analysis: Fitzgerald's first catch moved him ahead of Henry Ellard (13,777 career receiving yards) for 13th place on the NFL's all-time receiving yards list. Fitzgerald continues to be a consistent producer, but is still seeking his first 100-yard game of 2016.
|10/24/2016||David Johnson, Ari, RB|
|Johnson continued to build his case as an elite back, rushing for 113 yards on 33 carries in Sunday's 6-6 tie against Seattle. He also added career highs with eight catches for 58 yards.
Analysis: Johnson has gone over 100 yards rushing in three consecutive games, totaling 381 on 82 attempts for a 4.6 average. He also has 14 catches for 113 yards in that span.
|10/23/2016||Giovani Bernard, Cin, RB|
|Bernard ran for a season-high 80 yards and scored his first rushing touchdown Sunday.
Analysis: Bernard's value usually comes from his receiving ability, but he had only one reception Sunday. He's caught 30 passes for 263 yards with a TD this season.
|10/23/2016||A.J. Green, Cin, WR|
|Green had eight catches for 169 yards Sunday and made a one-handed 48-yard touchdown catch on the final play of the first half.
Analysis: It was Green's third game with at least 169 receiving yards this season. Overall, he has 50 catches for 775 yards and three TDs in seven contests.
|10/23/2016||Andy Dalton, Cin, QB|
|Dalton passed for 308 yards and two touchdowns, one of which was a 'Hail Mary' to A.J. Green at the end of the first half, to lift the Bengals to a 31-17 victory over the Browns on Sunday.
Analysis: He's played well over the last four games, completing 69.5 percent of his passes for 1,127 yards with six TDs and no INTs.
|10/23/2016||Jeremy Hill, Cin, RB|
|Hill rushed for a career-high 168 yards and had a 74-yard touchdown run Sunday.
Analysis: It was a breakout performance for Hill, who entered with 271 rushing yards in his first six games.
|10/23/2016||Landon Collins, NYG, S|
|Collins picked off a pair of passes, including one he returned for a TD, on Sunday in London.
Analysis: Collins is a solid fantasy option in IDP formats.
|10/23/2016||Tavon Austin, LA, WR|
|Austin had 10 catches for 57 yards and TD on Sunday.
Analysis: This was a season high for receptions by Austin, and he was also targeted 15 times. Consider his fantasy possibility in deeper leagues.
|10/23/2016||Eli Manning, NYG, QB|
|Manning threw for 196 yards without a TD or INT in the win over Los Angeles in London.
Analysis: Manning did not help his fantasy owners with this performance.
|10/23/2016||Case Keenum, LA, QB|
|Keenum remains the starting quarterback for Rams despite throwing four interceptions in Sunday's 17-10 loss to Giants in London.
Analysis: Keenum, who threw for 291 yards and one TD, has been picked off 10 times but for some reason coach Jeff Fisher doesn not believe rookie Jared Goff is ready to take over.
|10/23/2016||Travis Benjamin, SD, WR|
|Benjamin is active for Sunday's game at Atlanta.
Analysis: The speedy wide receiver was listed as questionable with a knee issue that wasn't believed to be serious, though it could explain his low output in San Diego's previous game. Benjamin had just 17 yards on three catches against Denver last week after recording 117 on seven grabs at Oakland the week prior.
|10/23/2016||Josh Norman, Was, CB|
|Norman was ruled out of Sunday's game at Detroit after suffering a concussion in the third quarter.
Analysis: The standout cornerback banged his head against the turf while tackling Marvin Jones on a 52-yard catch and was taken to the locker room following a brief evaluation on the sidelines. Norman will have to pass the NFL's concussion protocol to be cleared for next week's game against Cincinnati.
|10/23/2016||Cody Kessler, Cle, QB|
|Kessler was knocked out of Sunday's game at Cincinnati in the second quarter with a concussion.
Analysis: Kessler had his head slammed hard to the turf on a hit by the Bengals' Carlos Dunlap and was replaced by fellow rookie Kevin Hogan. The former USC quarterback completed 9 of 11 passes for 82 yards prior to departing. The hard-luck Browns are already without their top two quarterbacks, Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown, due to injuries.
|10/23/2016||Geno Smith, NYJ, QB|
|Smith has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and is seeking a second opinion on the injury that would end his season - and likely his time with the team that drafted him.
Analysis: Smith, a second-round pick in 2013, injured his knee while taking a sack from Baltimore's Matt Judon in the second quarter of the Jets' 24-16 win Sunday. Smith, who got the start in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick, had an MRI on Monday. The Jets will now apparently have to turn back to Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback.
|10/23/2016||Terron Armstead, NO, T|
|Armstead was carted off the field with a knee injury during the first quarter of Sunday's game at Kansas City, but returned later.
Analysis: Armstead is playing his first game since Week 2, having missed the team's past three with a knee injury as well.
|10/23/2016||Nick Mangold, NYJ, C|
|Mangold exited Sunday's game against Baltimore in the first quarter with a right ankle injury.
Analysis: The Jets have termed their longtime center questionable to return, though he might be done for the day after limping badly to the sidelines and being taken to the locker room. Mangold had been listed questionable for the game with a knee injury he's been battling the past couple weeks.
|10/23/2016||Julius Thomas, Jax, TE|
|Thomas is active for Sunday's game against Oakland.
Analysis: The Jaguars listed the tight end questionable for the contest after he tweaked his ankle during practice this week. Thomas has been a fantasy disappointment so far this season, managing just 13 catches and one touchdown over four games and missing one with an elbow injury.
|10/23/2016||Terrelle Pryor Sr., Cle, WR|
|Pryor is active for Sunday's game at Cincinnati.
Analysis: Cleveland's leading receiver was questionable for the contest after missing most of this week's practice schedule with a hamstring injury. Pryor has put up very good numbers over the past four weeks, though owners should be cautious considering he's likely not 100 percent.
