ESPN - [Full Article]

Saints running back Khiry Robinson was carted off the field after an air cast was placed on his right leg in the first half of Sunday's 52-49 victory over the New York Giants.

Robinson was injured after a 2-yard gain to the Giants' 2-yard line just before the two-minute warning. The Saints followed with a touchdown to take a 28-14 lead.

Robinson, who splits time with fellow Saints runners Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller has 180 rushing yards, 115 receiving yards and four touchdowns on the season.

Fantasy Impact:

The specific injury was not immediately announced. Austin Johnson and Marcus Murphy are up next on the depth chart behind Ingram and Spiller.

Despite optimism, Victor Cruz still not practicing

Tuesday, October 27, 2015, 9:03am - [Full Article]

Despite some optimism, Giants WR Victor Cruz is still not practicing. He meets with the doctors again on Thursday, hoping to hear some positive news on his calf.

There seems to be signs of optimism in this all-around unpleasant situation.

"There is no timetable set for me just yet," Cruz said during the premiere for his documentary on Monday night. "I meet with the doctors again this Thursday and take it from there.

"I feel better and I know that I'm progressing because the previous MRI showed the area of discomfort has gotten a lot smaller. Hopefully that trend continues and I'll be out there sooner or later."

Fantasy Impact:

First Cruz has to get cleared and make it through a practice. That didn't go so well last time around, when he lasted three plays and aggravated the calf injury on Sept. 30.

Joseph Randle has oblique injury

Monday, October 26, 2015, 5:58pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle left Sunday's Week 7, 27-20 loss to the New York Giants in the first quarter, and NFL Inside Randy Getlin has confirmed on Monday that Randle is dealing with an oblique injury.

This injury is similar to the one that caused Randle to miss time during the Cowboys' preseason and training camp.

In Randle's place, running back Darren McFadden had a breakout game against the Giants. He finished Week 7 with 29 carries for 152 yards and a touchdown. It was his first opportunity to operate as the team's lead back.

Fantasy Impact:

There has been no word on how much if any game time Randle might miss.

Dez Bryant hopeful to play Week 8

Monday, October 26, 2015, 12:23pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

There was some hope Dez Bryant would return in Week 7, but he never practiced in the days leading up to the game. Bryant said he “felt real good” working out before his teammates faced the Giants and that he’s hopeful that he can take the next step when the Cowboys face the Seahawks next weekend.

“I don’t honestly think that it has to be all the way 100 percent for me to get back on the field,” Bryant said, via the Dallas Morning News. “That’s my choice, we’re going to see about it. If I can go, I’m going to go.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Cowboys resume their practice schedule on Wednesday and Bryant will likely have to be a participant in some or all of this week’s workouts before he gets the green light. Bryant was often seen running on the sideline during the game, including his spat with Greg Hardy.

Joseph Randle strains back

Sunday, October 25, 2015, 7:26pm

Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Cowboys starting running back Joseph Randle left Sunday's game against the New York Giants with a back strain.

After being labeled as probable to return, Randle was seen biking on the Dallas sideline in the first half trying to get loose. He was then downgraded to doubtful.

He wasn't on the sideline in the third quarter.

Randle had two carries for 24 yards on the first drive and then none after.

Fantasy Impact:

Darren McFadden had a big day filling in for Randle as the Giants could do little to stop him. We'll monitor Randle's injury this week as well as his status for Week 8.

Dez Bryant now ruled OUT for Week 7

Saturday, October 24, 2015, 4:30pm - [Full Article]

It's officially official: Dez Bryant is out for the Dallas Cowboys' matchup with the New York Giants.

The receiver was downgraded from doubtful to out on Saturday.

Bryant didn't travel with the Cowboys on Friday. He was listed as doubtful on the injury report with the minutest of minute chances that he might join the team Saturday. That did not happen.

Fantasy Impact:

The Cowboys had hoped to get the Pro Bowl receiver back after their bye, but Bryant will miss his fifth straight game after suffering a broken foot that required surgery in Week 1. Matt Cassel will be throwing to Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley and Jason Witten, among others, Sunday afternoon. Bryant will now focus his attention on coming back Week 8.

Dez Bryant doesn't make trip; still not ruled out

Saturday, October 24, 2015, 2:19pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Usually, road teams adjust their injury reports after the team flight takes off, with players who didn’t make the road trip being downgraded from “questionable” or “doubtful” to “out.” But in the case of Dez Bryant, the Cowboys are still saying there’s a chance he could play tomorrow against the Giants, even though he wasn’t on the team flight to New Jersey.

A Cowboys spokesman told the Dallas Morning News that Bryant could still fly to New Jersey on his own and hasn’t been downgraded from “doubtful” to “out.”

Fantasy Impact:

Owners probably shouldn't hold their breath for Dez to play in Week 7. And at this point, even if he makes the flight on his own, it's hard to imagine he'll be at full strength. Week 8 now becomes the goal.
