Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (ankle) took limited practice reps again Friday. Andy Reid said he thinks Charles will play on Monday night, and it certainly is trending that way. If he can’t go Knile Davis would get another start. Unfortunately, those owners who don’t have Davis as a fallback option will be put in a tough spot. The injury report for Monday Night Football will be released on Saturday.

Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 4. HC Bill O’Brien said the team will make a decision on Sunday morning before the game. Alfred Blue would get the lion’s share of the carries if Foster misses Week 4. Beat writer John McClain said that he thinks Foster will play, though it’s very much up in the air at this point.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 4. We’re recommending holding onto Gerhart to see what kind of impact QB Blake Bortles has on the offense.

49ers RB Frank Gore (back, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 4. Gore should be fine for a good matchup with the Eagles.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 4. Khiry Robinson is expected to work as the lead back once again in Week 4, though Pierre Thomas will continue to be heavily involved. The matchup against the Cowboys is a good one.

Jets RB Chris Johnson (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 4. Johnson is likely to lose snaps and touches to Chris Ivory, who is outplaying him right now.

Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 4. Jones-Drew was running ahead of McFadden prior to the injury, but may be in a full-blown committee upon his return. The Raiders running game isn't strong enough to support one running back, much less two. MJD's only game thus far was against the impossible-to-run-on New York Jets, so there's still a chance he becomes fantasy relevant this season.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 4. Martin is practicing fully this week (and declared himself ‘100 percent’ healthy) so he looks like a go for a Week 4 matchup with the Steelers. We’re expecting him to get the start after Bobby Rainey’s fumblitis in Week 3. Rainey has otherwise ran well, however, and may see a larger than usual role for a change-of-pace back.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 4. With Danny Woodhead also out, Donald Brown should see a big workload as the team’s featured back. The diminutive Branden Oliver may work some in the Woodhead role.

Chiefs RB Joe McKnight (achilles) has been ruled out for Week 4.

Friday, September 26, 2014, 6:33pm

Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (elbow, out) has been ruled out for Week 4. Moreno is reportedly targeting Week 6 for his return. Lamar Miller should see another big workload in a good matchup against the Raiders.

Ravens RB Bernard Pierce (thigh, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 4. Pierce will play, though his place in the pecking order is unclear after a nice game from rookie runner Lorenzo Taliaferro. Even the Baltimore running backs don’t know how the touches will be divvied up, as OC Gary Kubiak indicated that he was going to take a “hot hand” approach.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (hamstring, probable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is probable for Week 4.

Friday, September 26, 2014, 6:33pm

Falcons RB Antone Smith (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 4.

Friday, September 26, 2014, 6:33pm

Bills RB C.J. Spiller (chest, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 4. Spiller was a midweek addition to the injury report, but the probable tag indicates it’s not serious.
