Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. McCoy isn’t expected to play in Week 5. Williams would get the nod, but he’s dealing with a concussion. Anthony Dixon is the next man up, and he has a calf injury. Dan Herron should rotate in against the Titans.

Karlos Williams has concussion

It wasn’t fully recognized by even Karlos Williams himself, but late Monday night the Bills running back wasn’t feeling well. After an examination it was discovered that Williams sustained a concussion in the Bills loss to the Giants Sunday. GM Doug Whaley announced the news Tuesday morning in his weekly appearance on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550.

Whaley said that Williams is going through the league’s concussion protocol. Williams status for playing on Sunday is certainly up in the air and with starting RB LeSean McCoy also a major question mark for the Titans game, the Bills have just Boobie Dixon and Cierre Wood as healthy running backs.

“We have confidence in the guys that we have in Boobie Dixon and Cierre Wood, who have been here,” said Whaley.

Fantasy Impact:

Whaley admitted they will take a look to see what is out there to find replenish the depth at the position. Former Bills RB Bryce Brown is an available free agent and Whaley admitted that he would be a possibility. The team did not rule out Williams playing this week so it's a situation for owners to keep an eye on.

Titans will continue to take 'week to week' approach with RBBC

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans HC Ken Whisenhunt doesn’t sound like a coach who is in a rush to identify his leading rusher.

“What’s wrong with what we’ve been doing in the first three weeks running the football?” he said.

Whisenhunt’s approach is to install different offensive packages that are suited to each back’s skill-set. Then the Titans go with whatever is working in a given game.

That helps explain why a different player has been the leading rusher in each of the Titans’ three games — Sankey against Tampa Bay, McCluster against Cleveland and Andrews against Indianapolis.

“I don’t know what it’s going to be next week or the next week that we play,” Whisenhunt said. “That’s going to go from week to week.”

Related Players: Antonio Andrews, Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster and Terrance West

Fantasy Impact:

Antonio Andrews was the lead back in Week 3, while Terrance West was a healthy scratch, so it appears that Andrews has passed West on the depth chart, at the very least. Owners won't be able to start Andrews with confidence in Week 5, but if he continues to produce, he should work his way into the flex conversation fairly quickly. Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster will continue to get opportunities as well.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 3. The probable tag means that Walker is going to play against the Colts.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Walker was relatively close to playing in Week 2, so he should be able to face the Colts on Sunday. The upgrade to “full” is encouraging.

Browns Beat: Duke Johnson 'clearly' getting worked 'more and more' into offense

Wednesday, September 23, 2015, 12:47pm

Cleveland Browns - [Full Article]

Duke Johnson, who missed most of the preseason with a hamstring injury and concussion, saw his snaps decrease from Week 1 to Week 2, but that’s misleading. The Browns ran just 49 plays against the Titans compared to 71 against the Jets. His percentage of snaps went up, and a big reason for that likely has something to do with the Browns being able to run the ball in the fourth quarter against Tennessee. He picked up a key first down on the Browns’ final offensive possession. Clearly, he’s getting worked more and more into Cleveland’s offensive plans.

When Johnson was drafted, he was pegged as a change-of-pace kind of player who would be just as dangerous out of the backfield as a pass-catcher as he would be as a runner. Now that Terrance West is gone, Johnson is simply the No. 2 option who can beat you as a runner and receiver in what Browns coach Mike Pettine mentioned Tuesday as a “committee” with Isaiah Crowell.

“I’d probably lean a little bit toward saying it’s a committee,” Pettine said on an interview with NFL Network.

“Everything will be game-planned, who is a better matchup for who we’re playing.”

Fantasy Impact:

One good thing about Josh McCown being back under center is that he's more likely to check down to Johnson in the flat than Manziel, who tends to scramble around to try to make a big play in the passing game. Johnson has yet to catch a pass, which is surprising since that's his wheelhouse.

In a Week 1 win at Tampa Bay, running back Bishop Sankey led the way in the running game.

In Week 2, a lot of the pre-game buzz centered on running back Terrance West, who was traded from the Browns to the Titans just a few weeks ago.

But it was Dexter McCluster who busted onto the scene in Sunday’s 28-14 loss to the Browns.

McCluster had a team-high 98 yards on 10 carries against the Browns, nearly getting his rushing total from a year ago (131 yards) in one game. Sankey (12-42) and West (3-10), meanwhile, had relatively quiet days.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt offered praise for McCluster on Monday. McCluster said the plan going in was to get him some touches.

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans are getting production from their running backs but this looks like an unpredictable committee approach. McCluster has never really carried the load as an RB. Sankey led the team in carries but only turned 12 rushes into 42 yards.

Marcus Mariota treated for ankle injury

Sunday, September 20, 2015, 8:07pm

Yahoo - [Full Article]

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota received treatment on his left ankle following Sunday's 28-14 loss at Cleveland.

"I was incredibly impressed with how he handled himself," Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "The man's a fighter. He showed a lot of poise, he showed a lot of character in that second half. Obviously his ankle was bothering him a little bit and he still made a lot of plays."

Fantasy Impact:

Mariota doesn't believe he'll miss any time, according to the story. The Titans had to alter their game plan in the second half because the rookie was gimpy. It's possible if he's not 100-percent heading into Week 3 the team will again have to alter their offense, so it's something to monitor this week.

Titans RB Antonio Andrews (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 2.

Friday, September 18, 2015, 6:37pm

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand, questionable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 2. Walker has a chance to play, but some of the beat writers have their doubts. The Titans play early on Sunday, so that’s good. Walker is not looking like a strong option this week. We’re worried about his ability to catch the ball with a sprained ligament in his wrist.
