Jake Locker could return as early as Week 8

Ed Werder, Twitter - [Full Article]

Titans now estimate QB Jake Locker should return in four to six weeks from hip and knee sprains. Time frame was 4 to 8 or more.

Fantasy Impact:

A four-week timeline would put Locker's return in Week 8 against the Rams. Ryan Fitzpatrick will try to hold down the fort against the Chiefs, Seahawks and 49ers. A difficult task, but at least the games against the Chiefs and 49ers are at home. The Titans would be fortunate to get to their bye with a 4-3 record.

Isaiah Pead OUT for Rams, rookie RB Zac Stacy IN
Thursday, September 26, 2013, 7:13pm

Rams Inactives
Roger Saffold OL
William Hayes DE
Barrett Jones OL
Brandon Washington OL
Mike Person OL
Mike McNeill TE
Isaiah Pead RB

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie RB Zac Stacy gets the nod over Isaiah Pead, who is inactive. With Pead out we feel more comfortable starting Daryl Richardson in the flex considering the 49ers defense is banged up and has struggled against RBs this season.

ESPN - [Full Article]

St. Louis Rams running back Daryl Richardson practiced on a limited basis Monday after leaving Sunday's game in Dallas because of a foot injury, but said he plans to play Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story points out, leading into Sunday's game, Richardson had already been dealing with a foot injury that ailed him since the opener against Arizona. He's is a risky start this week with Isaiah Pead getting some work as well. Be sure to check out our rankings on Wednesday, but Richardson is looking to be a RB3 option at best.

Beat: Steven Jackson could be out another 2-3 weeks
Monday, September 23, 2013, 8:45pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Don't expect Steven Jackson to make a miraculous recovery over the next few days.

The Atlanta Falcons running back, who missed Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Dolphins while nursing a hamstring injury, is still expected to be sidelined another two to three weeks, according to a league source. That means Jackson is set to miss Sunday night's showdown with the Patriots.

Jackson sustained the setback -- originally called a thigh injury -- in the first quarter of a Week 2 win over his former team, the Rams. He exited that game immediately after scoring an eight-yard touchdown off a pass from Matt Ryan.

Jackson said last week he was getting better but would not discuss his status in detail. The Falcons (1-2) might miss him against the Patriots (3-0).

Fantasy Impact:

Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling held their own while combining for 139 rushing yards against the Dolphins, but a healthy Jackson could have helped solve some of the Falcons' red-zone woes with his rugged, downhill style, the story points out. Rodgers is a nicer PPR option, but you can probably expect Snelling to get any carries in close at the goal line. So, both have some limited value depending on your league format.

ESPN Dallas - [Full Article]

The Dallas Cowboys do not believe Miles Austin's strained hamstring is as serious as the hamstring injuries that have limited the wide receiver in each of the past two seasons, a source told ESPN.com.

The Cowboys will be cautious this week with Austin, who suffered the injury in Sunday's 31-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams, and will see how he feels Wednesday before determining if he will practice.

ESPN Dallas - [Full Article]

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin tweaked his hamstring in the third quarter of Sunday's victory over the St. Louis Rams. Austin was hurt as he jumped up to make a catch, ruled incomplete.

Fantasy Impact:

Austin, who did not return, finished with two catches for 22 yards. He has a history of hamstring injuries and does extra stretching in an attempt to prevent them from reoccurring.
