  Broncos | Montee Ball ruled out    Fri Oct 31, 06:01 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice Friday, Oct. 31, and has been ruled out for Week 9 against the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: Ball's return date is still very uncertain, and there have been no signs that he is close. With Ronnie Hillman outplaying the level Ball was at before getting hurt, the Broncos should be in no rush get Ball back out there.

  Texans | Arian Foster probable for Week 9    Fri Oct 31, 05:34 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 31, but is probable for Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: At least it's not a hamstring issue. Foster feels one of the riskiest backs in the second half of the season with respect to durability, but he also is an elite RB1, which are in short supply. There's no reason to change his outlook based on this limited practice.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews to return after bye?    Fri Oct 31, 05:12 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) is running again in practice, and he hopes to return Nov. 16 after the team's Week 10 bye to face the Oakland Raiders. 'Being able to run again is encouraging,' Mathews said. 'That's a big step. I'm very encouraged. The trainers are doing a great job and I'm just following their plan. Every time they put me through something I'm just trying to do my best.'

  Browns | Isaiah Crowell wants to be more involved    Fri Oct 31, 05:11 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell, who played just three snaps and had one carry for one yard in Week 8, is hoping he'll be more involved in the game plan in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Ben Tate played 31 of 56 snaps and had 15 carries for 26 yards last week, while RB Terrance West played 22 snaps and had seven carries for 11 yards. Crowell continues to lead the team in average yards per carry (4.9) and rushing touchdowns (four). He dropped two pitches and had a fumble in Week 6, but Crowell insists that he doesn't have ball-security issues.

Footballguys view: Crowell appears to be the most talented back on Cleveland's roster and the Browns have expressed a desire for one back to emerge, but he hasn't gotten that shot yet because of fumbles and practice performances. The loss of all-world center Alex Mack has taken the luster off of the most dominant running game of the first half of the season, so chasing Crowell's speculation value is also losing its shine, but don't be surprised if he finishes the season atop the depth chart.

  Chiefs | Jamaal Charles will play in Week 9    Fri Oct 31, 04:44 PM

S Eric Berry (ankle), TE Anthony Fasano (shoulder), CB Phillip Gaines (quadriceps), WR Junior Hemingway (hamstring), OG Mike McGlynn (foot), CB Sean Smith (groin) and RB Cyrus Gray (hand) are probable. Avery, Fleming, and Martin didn't practice Friday, Oct. 31. Owens and Berry were limited, while the rest practiced in full.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews ruled out    Fri Oct 31, 04:21 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 9 game.

Footballguys view: Mathews should return in Week 11 against the Raiders, but expect him to share with Branden Oliver for the rest of the year. Donald Brown is also healthy again, so this could be a tough situation to decipher when all three backs are on the field.

  Ravens | Justin Forsett probable    Fri Oct 31, 03:50 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9.

Footballguys view: Forsett's ankle interfered with his practice participation earlier this week, but this full practice should allow you to feel good using him as you normally would.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill to start in Week 9    Fri Oct 31, 02:14 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will start in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with RB Giovani Bernard (hip) ruled out. The team is also unsure if Bernard will be able to play in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Nov. 6, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Hill has 195 yards and three touchdowns on 50 carries this year. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is confident that Hill can carry the load with Bernard out. RBs Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead will also see repetitions.

Footballguys view: Hill should get at least 20 touches in a game the Bengals should control against the Jaguars. We can't think of a reason to leave him on your bench this week.

  Buccaneers | Doug Martin doubtful for Week 9    Fri Oct 31, 01:25 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is doubtful for the team's Week 9 game.

Footballguys view: This could be the opening that rookie Charles Sims needs to take over in this backfield, but he still has to be activated for the game. If Sims isn't ready, then Bobby Rainey would become a solid RB2 play against a weak Browns run defense.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles expected to play    Fri Oct 31, 12:37 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Sproles is a "what the heck flex" play, with a better chance of big plays on the turf in Houston than he has on grass at home.

  Panthers | DeAngelo Williams doesn't do much    Fri Oct 31, 12:22 PM

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams had only eight carries for 20 yards in the Week 9 game against the New Orleans Saints Thursday, Oct. 30, in his first game back after missing four straight contests with an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Williams showed a good burst on his long reception, but the Panthers offense, running game, and committee backfield will make it hard for him to be more than a desperation play from here on out. Next week at Philadelphia doesn't offer more promise as a matchup than this week's game at home against New Orleans.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard unlikely to go    Fri Oct 31, 11:05 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, shoulder) is unlikely to play in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Jeremy Hill should get the start and he represents a strong RB2 play with RB1 upside against the hapless Jaguars. Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead should also get a chance to touch the ball, especially if the game gets out of hand in the second half.

  Colts | Trent Richardson off injury report    Fri Oct 31, 10:28 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is not on the injury report for Week 9, and should be able to play Monday, Nov. 3.

Footballguys view: Richardson was only active as an emergency third back last week, but he should get his typical workload of 15-20 touches on Monday night, allowing him to fulfill flex play value for Week 9.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings aiming for Week 10    Fri Oct 31, 10:11 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is aiming to return for the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Jennings needs to get back in football condition and make sure his knee is fit for the wear and tear of a feature back workload before getting back on the field. He should be a solid RB2 with RB1 upside in the second half of the season.

  Broncos | Ronnie Hillman to have normal load    Fri Oct 31, 09:11 AM

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman (shoulder) is expected to have his normal workload in Week 9, despite his limited practice repetitions.

Footballguys view: Hillman should have a nice game at the same site where Knowshon Moreno had 37 carries as a member of the Broncos last year. Consider him a strong RB2 play in this week with six teams on bye.

  Saints | Mark Ingram injures shoulder    Thu Oct 30, 10:31 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) suffered a right shoulder injury in the first half of the team's game Thursday, Oct. 30, and will play the rest of the game with a brace.

Footballguys view: Ingram was able to ring up 30 carries, so that shoulder must not have been bothering him too much. The big question for Ingram owners is whether he can get the bulk of the carries when Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson return.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch returns to practice    Thu Oct 30, 08:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury related) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 30, after receiving a routine day off Wednesday.

  Panthers | Sign Darrin Reaves    Thu Oct 30, 07:25 PM

The Carolina Panthers re-signed RB Darrin Reaves to their practice squad Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Reaves saw some playing time earlier this year, but with both Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams healthy, the team could safely put him on the practice squad.


  Saints | Khiry Robinson, Pierre Thomas out    Thu Oct 30, 07:15 PM

New Orleans Saints RBs Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Pierre Thomas (shoulder) are both inactive in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Oct. 30.

  Broncos | Montee Ball remains out    Thu Oct 30, 06:16 PM

Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) remained out of practice for the second day this week Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Ball might be able to return from his groin injury next week. When he does return, we'll likely see him as a backup behind Ronnie Hillman. We've seen Hillman rush for over 100 yards in two of his three starts while Ball has been out.

  Jets | Chris Johnson frustrated with role    Thu Oct 30, 06:02 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson, who carried the ball just three times for seven yards in Week 8, said he's frustrated with his limited role in the offense. '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. Johnson and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg discussed the possibility of expanded his role two weeks ago, but that hasn't come to fruition.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are frustrated with Johnson's performance so far this year. We're not confident anything will change with the Jets offense...even with a new starting quarterback in Michael Vick. Head coach Rex Ryan insisted that Johnson isn't being phased out of the offense.

  Buccaneers | Charles Sims' status uncertain    Thu Oct 30, 03:59 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Charles Sims (ankle) is making progress, but it is not known if he will play in Week 9, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Footballguys view: If he plays, Sims makes for a risky fantasy start. We love his poor man's version of Matt Forte skill set, but we'd like to see him in action first before we recommend him as anything more than a 'what the heck' flex.
