Trent Richardson leaves with hamstring injury

Kevin Brown on Twitter - [Full Article]

Colts RB Trent Richardson suffered a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact:

That left Ahmad Bradshaw to carry the load, and while he did fumble he also scored two TDs. Richardson tweeted he would be fine, but we can't always depend on a player for an accurate injury update. Daniel Herron chipped in with five carries. Richardson had rushed 14 times for 77 yards before getting hurt so he was running well. Indy plays in a late afternoon game in Week 8 against the Steelers so owners will need a backup plan in case he's a game-time call.

Marvin Lewis: A.J. Green's return 'up in the air'

Saturday, October 18, 2014, 9:21am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Bengals still aren't exactly sure when injured Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green will be rejoining their ranks, coach Marvin Lewis said Friday afternoon.

After Green's visit to a foot specialist last week in Cincinnati, the hope was that the third-year star wideout would be back after this week. But the possibility exists his return could take a little longer.

Asked Friday about a more defined timetable for Green's return from a big toe injury that kept him out of last week's game and will do the same this Sunday, Lewis simply said "the time is up in the air."

Fantasy Impact:

As we've stated before, the Colts are not a favorable matchup for wide receivers. Mohamed Sanu is a strong WR2, while Brandon Tate is one of our Sneaky Starts with Green out of the lineup.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 7. We’re not expecting Green to play in a big game against the Colts. Mohamed Sanu is a strong WR2, while Brandon Tate is a Sneaky Start with Green out of the lineup. The Colts are not a favorable matchup for wide receivers.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. Wayne will be fine to face the Bengals.

Thursday, October 16, 2014, 6:18pm

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) missed practice again Thursday. We’re not expecting Green to play in a big game against the Colts. Mohamed Sanu is a strong WR2, while Brandon Tate is a Sneaky Start with Green out of the lineup.

Thursday, October 16, 2014, 6:18pm

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) returned to full practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday. This was Wayne’s usual veteran’s day off.

Wednesday, October 15, 2014, 6:35pm

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) did not practice Wednesday. We’re not expecting Green to play in a big game against the Colts. Mohamed Sanu is a strong WR2, while Brandon Tate is a Sneaky Start with Green out of the lineup.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. This is typical for Wayne.

Giants hoping that RB Rashad Jennings will return in Week 9

Wednesday, October 15, 2014, 12:17pm

NJ.com - [Full Article]

The Giants will try to get their running game back on track Sunday in Dallas without Rashad Jennings.

The Giants starting running back will miss his second consecutive game because of a sprained MCL in his left knee. He suffered the injury two weeks ago against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Giants have a bye week after the Cowboys game. The hope is that Jennings returns the following week when they face the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night.

"I hope so," coach Tom Coughlin said. "I can't tell you that for sure but we hope."

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Williams carried the ball 16 times in a blowout loss to the Eagles in Week 6, so we're expecting at least that many touches against the Cowboys this week. There has been no indication that Jennings' job is in danger -- Williams is probably the better runner, but he simply isn't the weapon in the passing game that Jennings is.

Giovani Bernard injures shoulder but returns

Right shoulder injury for Bengals RB Giovani Bernard.

Fantasy Impact:

Bernard was having a big day, including an 89-yard TD run, before he had to leave with a shoulder injury. However, Bernard eventually returned in the fourth quarter, played right through overtime and is believed to be fine. He's got a nice matchup in Week 7 with the Colts.

Fantasy Impact:

Andre Johnson is active. Johnson practice all week, and hasn’t done much all season, but he’s still a target hog and the Texans may fall behind early in this one. The Colts are a bad matchup for receivers, but the Texans may find themselves in garbage time. As for Foster, we’re expecting his usual workload. He may not reach 23 carries like in Week 5, but he was listed as probable, so the hamstring injury isn’t a big concern. Alfred Blue may see a few extra touches on a short week.

Wednesday, October 8, 2014, 6:37pm

Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (calf, probable) practiced fully Wednesday. Fitzy should be fine to face the Colts on a short week.

Wednesday, October 8, 2014, 6:37pm

Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring, probable) practiced fully Wednesday. Foster should be fine to face a leaky Colts rush defense on Thursday night.
