ESPN - [Full Article]

The league year began for New York Giants running back Orleans Darkwa with an injured leg. It ended because of a related problem to the leg.

Darkwa was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with the return of running back Shane Vereen (triceps) on the horizon. Vereen could be back as early as next week to play against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact:

Vereen may be a forgotten player in your league as reports came out early after his injury he was done for the year. But a possible return next week may be a good enough reason to take a shot on him if he's on your wire, especially in PPR leagues. Vereen was averaging about 13 touches in his only three games of the season, and that actually included over 10 carries a game.

Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) expected to miss time

Monday, November 21, 2016, 5:47pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

A nightmare-inducing season for the Chicago Bears has brought more frightening news to coach John Fox.

Jay Cutler is undergoing tests for a shoulder injury sustained in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the injury. The starting quarterback is expected to miss time, per Rapoport. The team will know more Tuesday, with one source acknowledging the possibility that the injury could be serious in nature.

The Chicago Tribune first reported the development.

Related players: Matt Barkley

Fantasy Impact:

As NFL Network's Mike Garafolo pointed out, Fox told reporters there were severals reasons Cutler couldn't take advantage of the Giants' defense stacking the box. A shoulder issue would certainly qualify as one of those factors. This is Cutler's second injury of the season. He missed five games in September and October with a sprained thumb. The Bears have already lost quarterbacks Connor Shaw (broken leg) and Brian Hoyer (broken arm) to major injuries, leaving journeyman third-stringer Matt Barkley as the lone in-house replacement for Cutler.

Coach Hue Jackson said that although Robert Griffin III will practice, he has not been cleared for contact or to play in a game. Rookie Cody Kessler had his second concussion in five games and is out indefinitely.

Fantasy Impact:

The team could shut down Kessler for a while according to a report we had earlier today. With RGIII not ready to get back into action, McCown gets the start in Week 12.
