Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (groin, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 5. Shorts is expected to play, but he's a dicey start after missing practice all week. Still, the Rams are an excellent matchup, so he's a WR2/WR3 type in Week 5.

Rams RB situation muddled

Rams RB Daryl Richardson, backtracking from earlier tweet, said he was told that there will be a competition this week.

Fantasy Impact:
It's unclear who will 'start' for the Rams this week, though Isaiah Pead, Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy could all be in the mix. It's a situation to avoid until we gain some clarity, and that may not happen prior to kickoff.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) took full practice reps again Thursday. Pryor is symptom free and is expected to start on Sunday night against the Rams. He'll be a Sneaky Start against a shaky Chargers pass defense.

Titans QB Jake Locker (hip, knee) was ruled out for Week 5. He will reportedly miss 4-6 weeks, which would (at best) put him back in Week 9 against the Rams. Ryan Fitzpatrick gets the start but has a rough upcoming schedule that starts with the Chiefs this week.

Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday. Pryor is symptom free and is expected to start on Sunday night against the Rams. He'll be a Sneaky Start against a shaky Chargers pass defense.

Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (groin) did not practice Wednesday. Shorts had a groin injury back in Week 2 but it didn't seem to bother him too much. If he practices on Thursday or Friday he should be good to go for a tasty matchup with the Rams.

Jake Locker could return as early as Week 8

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

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.

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 7:30pm

Rams RB Daryl Richardson (foot, probable) practiced fully Wednesday. It looks like Richardson is in for Thursday night's game against the 49ers. He's a tough player to start as he's only three days removed from a two-snap effort versus the Cowboys. We're expecting Isaiah Pead to get a healthy amount of work this week.

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 7:30pm

49ers RB Frank Gore (knee, probable) is probable for Thursday night's game against the Rams, who were torched by DeMarco Murray in Week 3.

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 7:29pm

Rams WR Chris Givens (knee, probable) practiced fully Wednesday. Givens will play Thursday night, and although he's second on the team in receiving yardage (186), he hasn't yet found the endzone. That should change soon.

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 7:29pm

49ers WR Kyle Williams (rib, questionable). Williams should be able to play on Thursday night against the Rams, but isn't a great option.

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 7:29pm

49ers TE Vernon Davis (hamstring, questionable) practiced on a limited basis on Monday and Tuesday and is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Rams. Our bet is that Davis plays in a divisional game after losing two straight to the Seahawks and the Colts. He was sorely missed in Week 3.
