Injury Expectations | Thursday Update | Week 3

Tracking who's practicing and who's not on the early week practice participation report

KEY Thursday UPDATES

***Brandon Marshall did not practice. His Friday participation and media availability will be telling.

***Alshon Jeffery did not practice. John Fox, predictably, was vague when asked and non-committal about Jeffery's Friday practice availability.

***Willie Snead was unexpectedly on the injury report with a toe injury of unknown severity. He has two more days of practice and treatment to ready himself for Monday Night Football.

***T.Y. Hilton was added to the injury report as limited with a knee injury. The Colts did the same last week and Hilton was active without obvious limitation.

***Antonio Gates missed another practice. The Chargers have signed an extra tight end to the practice squad. That could be for practice reps or an indication of concern about Gates for Sunday.


EARLY WEEK PRACTICE PARTICIPATION REPORT AND GAME EXPECTATIONS

The Wednesday and Thursday practice participation reports are our first chance to see which players each NFL team are limiting in practice after the previous week's games. Players limited in mid-week practice aren't necessarily in danger of missing that week's game. But they all need to be watched closely.
