  Colts | Trent Richardson expects to play    Wed Oct 22, 11:34 PM

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he expects to play in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was injured in the second half of the Week 7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, and could have returned. However, he was held out because the game had already been decided.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Ellington has not had any setbacks from the foot injury, and he's a RB2 with RB1 upside each week for fantasy owners.

  Saints | Khiry Robinson misses practices    Wed Oct 22, 04:38 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Both Robinson and Pierre Thomas (shoulder) are a little bit banged up. Fantasy owners of Mark Ingram should see a larger workload in Week 8. We like Ingram as a RB2/flex play in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Bengals | Limited practice for Giovani Bernard    Wed Oct 22, 04:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) was listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Bernard was rocked last week by cornerback Vonta Davis, and that led to this injury. We'll see if he can practice fully later in the week. The Bengals need to get back on track, and Bernard is a mid-range RB2 in Week 8 against the Ravens.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas does not practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:37 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Thomas might not be able to play this week. With Thomas and Khiry Robinson (forearm) both banged up, we could see a larger role for Mark Ingram in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Packers | James Starks doesn't practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:27 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Starks injured the ankle in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.

Footballguys view: Starks is nothing more than a 'what the heck' flex if he plays in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Colts | Trent Richardson sits out    Wed Oct 22, 04:19 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Richardson is a little banged up here, but he's looked good enough in recent weeks to throw in as a flex play. Make sure to check back to monitor Richardson's practice status.

  Jaguars | Toby Gerhart limited Wednesday    Wed Oct 22, 04:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Gerhart may play this week, but his role will be as a backup behind Denard Robinson. It's safe for most re-draft fantasy owners to move on from Gerhart.

  Titans | Shonn Greene doesn't do all drills    Wed Oct 22, 04:11 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: The Titans brought up Antonio Andrews off their practice squad earlier this week. Greene might be back soon, but he'll still be a reserve player behind Bishop Sankey. He has little fantasy value.

  Broncos | Montee Ball to miss Week 8    Wed Oct 22, 03:45 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Ball may be back in the lineup around Week 11....but his role may have drastically changed. Ronnie Hillman has looked good as a starter for the team over the last two weeks. That means Ball may return to the lineup as a reserve back behind Hillman. We'll see if Hillman can maintain his success on the ground....and hang onto the rock while Ball is still out.

  Rams | Tre Mason could be top RB option    Wed Oct 22, 03:08 PM

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason could be the top candidate for a majority of carries since he is averaging 5.4 yards per carry. Mason rushed for 85 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in Week 7 and received most of the carries because he had the hot hand, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. RB Zac Stacy was announced the starter for Week 7 but only played one snap. RB Benny Cunningham only rushed for three yards during the game. Stacy is averaging 3.93 yards per carry this season, while Cunningham is averaging 3.78 yards per carry.

Footballguys view: Mason has led the team in rushing yards over the last two weeks. The speedy rookie has more explosiveness than Cunningham or Stacy. Fantasy owners need to consider Mason a low-end RB2/flex with upside in PPR leagues.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles limited    Wed Oct 22, 02:30 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: There's no official timetable on when Sproles will be back from his knee injury. He could return this week against the Cardinals, but we only can recommend him as a low-end flex play--if he plays.

  Eagles | Wednesday practice report    Wed Oct 22, 02:26 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Brad Smith (groin) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. C Jason Kelce (hernia), LB Mychal Kendricks (calf) and OG Evan Mathis (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. RB Chris Polk (hamstring) and LB DeMeco Ryans (groin) practiced in full.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims practicing    Wed Oct 22, 02:17 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but will not be added to the roster until he is activated from the Active/Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Sims is an interesting name to keep an eye on in deeper leagues. Dynasty owners are certainly interested in seeing what he can do. Sims has a skill set similar to that of a poor man's version of Matt Forte. When he's active, the Bucs could choose to mix him in if Doug Martin and Bobby Rainey are struggling.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles showed concussion symptoms    Wed Oct 22, 02:15 PM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (concussion) showed no signs of a concussion when he was checked after a helmet-to-helmet hit in Week 7, according to trainer Rick Burkholder. However, Charles said he was never checked, and he said after the game that the hit was no big deal. He changed his tune after the game: 'It definitely hurt,' Charles said. 'A couple plays later, I just (saw) this light buzz around my eyes and I was trying to catch 'em. But I was like, 'Let's get the ball and run again.'' Charles had other concussion symptoms, as well, but didn't think he had a concussion. He was cleared from the concussion protocol Tuesday, Oct. 21, and was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but the team will continue to monitor him.

Footballguys view: Um, the Chiefs had better keep an eye on Charles here. He's clearly the best player on the roster, and Charles is one of the best backs in all of football. We're happy that Andy Reid didn't have to apologize (again) for not using Charles enough. Charles was a big reason why the Chiefs were able to beat the Chargers in Week 7.

  Lions | Jerome Couplin re-signs    Wed Oct 22, 01:56 PM

  Bills | Anthony Dixon working with starters    Wed Oct 22, 01:53 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon is working with the starters in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. RB Bryce Brown is working with the second-string offense.

Footballguys view: Those rushing out to get Brown on the waiver wire may be chasing fool's gold. Sure, Brown is an incredibly talented runner, but he lacks discipline and tries to bounce too many runs outside. Dixon is more of a disciplined runner, and he should be the lead back while Fred Jackson is out.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles cleared to practice    Wed Oct 22, 01:41 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (concussion) was cleared to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, but the team will continue to monitor him throughout the week.

Footballguys view: Charles had concussion-like symptoms after a big hit in the game against the San Diego Chargers last week. He should be good for Week 8.

  49ers | Marcus Lattimore's return around the corner    Wed Oct 22, 01:20 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) will be cleared to practice from the Non-Football Injury list following the team's Week 8 bye. The team plans to activate him to their 53-man roster for the first time in his career. Lattimore has been working his way back from a gruesome right knee injury while in college in October of 2012. He is now weighing 220 pounds after reporting to training camp at 225 pounds, and he thinks he has added quickness.

Footballguys view: Dynasty alert! We know that Lattimore has star upside if he can ever come back to full strength after two devastating knee injuries in college at South Carolina. It will be interesting to see if he can get a few carries this year behind Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams sitting out    Wed Oct 22, 12:45 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Sure, Williams could be back this week...maybe, possibly, perhaps. Fantasy owners really want to avoid the Carolina backfield if at all possible. Even Jonathan Stewart is nothing more than a RB3/flex play in Week 8 against the Seahawks.

  Lions | Theo Riddick does some drills    Wed Oct 22, 12:43 PM

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Alright, that gives us a bit more clarity here. Riddick has looked explosive for the Lions on limited touches, but he's still third in the pecking order behind Joique Bell and Reggie Bush.

  Lions | Reggie Bush limited during practice    Wed Oct 22, 12:29 PM

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Let's watch this situation closely as the week of practice goes on. Bush should be able to practice fully on Friday--and if he does--then we see him as a RB2 with upside against a bad Falcons defense in Week 8.

  Bills | Anthony Dixon likely the guy    Wed Oct 22, 10:26 AM

The Buffalo Bills love RB Anthony Dixon, and he's likely to lead the way at running back over RB Bryce Brown.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to realize this Bills RB situation will be split between two backs. Dixon is a power back with determination in the middle of the line. Brown is a more explosive player, but he lacks discipline as a runner and tries to bounce too many runs outside.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon shows big-play ability     Tue Oct 21, 11:48 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has rushed for at least five yards on 22 of his 60 carries this season, amassing 245 yards on those 22 attempts.

Footballguys view: McKinnon is a RB2 with upside this week for fantasy owners. He's explosive and can eat up chunks of yards quickly every time he touches the ball.

  Colts | Make several roster moves    Tue Oct 21, 06:37 PM

  Broncos | Montee Ball out again Tuesday    Tue Oct 21, 05:31 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) was not at practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: There are some close to the team speculating the Broncos could be targeting a Week 11 return for Ball. That week, the Broncos travel to St. Louis to play the Rams. In the meantime, Ronnie Hillman is the lead back for Denver. We can recommend him as a high upside RB2 the way things have been going over the last two weeks.

  Jaguars | Denard Robinson praised by coach    Tue Oct 21, 04:13 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson was recently lauded by head coach Gus Bradley. Bradley said Robinson is extremely competitive and the drive to succeed and get better came from within for Robinson.

Footballguys view: Robinson is the lead back for the Jaguars until further notice. His speed and explosiveness are quite noticeable when he gets to the second level of the defense. We can recommend him as a RB2/flex play in good matchups. Against tougher teams, it's best to consider Robinson more of a flex player for your fantasy team.

  Jaguars | Toby Gerhart progressing    Tue Oct 21, 04:05 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is progressing from a foot injury that has caused him to miss the last two games. His status will be updated Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Gerhart is progressing, but he's going to come back to a new role with the Jaguars. Denard Robinson has emerged as the featured runner with rookie Storm Johnson working as a part-time player. When healthy, Gerhart should take over for Johnson in that limited role.

  Cardinals | Andre Ellington extremely productive    Tue Oct 21, 03:58 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington had 88 yards rushing and 72 yards receiving in Week 7, and only four players in franchise history since 1960 to have more yards from scrimmage than Ellington's 653 through six games. Ellington has also been playing with a partially torn tendon in his foot. Head coach Bruce Arians said Ellington will continue to sit out of practice on Wednesdays.

Footballguys view: Ellington is one of the most explosive players in the game today. It's wise for the Cardinals to use him as much as possible. However, fantasy owners were upset that Stepfan Taylor (and not Ellington) scored a couple of touchdowns for the Cardinals in Week 7.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews doesn't practice    Tue Oct 21, 03:35 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 21, and is not expected to play Thursday, Oct. 23, against the Denver Broncos.

  Chargers | Donald Brown not practicing    Tue Oct 21, 03:33 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 21, and is not expected to play Thursday, Oct. 23, against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: This is not a good sign for Brown. The Chargers have a short week as they play the Broncos on Thursday night. It looks like we'll see Branden Oliver and Ronnie Brown in the backfield for the Chargers in Week 8.
