Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Forte played through the knee injury last week and is likely just getting a day off. Let this serve as a reminder that he’s no spring chicken and that Bilal Powell is a very capable backup.

Dolphins RB Arian Foster (hamstring, out) did not practice Wednesday. The Dolphins will likely continue with their three-headed RBBC.

Colts RB Frank Gore (not injury related) did not practice Wednesday. It’s a day of rest for the veteran.

Texans RB Jonathan Grimes (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Jaguars RB Chris Ivory (ankle, knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. These are new injuries for the oft-injured Ivory, though it looks like he’ll be able to play through his various ailments.

Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Martin will miss another week or two. Charles Sims is a Sneaky Start against the Broncos, who are allowing 4.7 YPC on the season.

Steelers RB Roosevelt Nix (back) took limited practice reps Wednesday.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Stewart is expected to miss Week 4. Cameron Artis-Payne should continue to lead the backfield. He saw 48% of the running back touches, gaining a respectable 58 total yards against a very good Minnesota defense. This week, he faces the Falcons, who are #27 in RB aFPA. This is speculation, but Cam Newton is dealing with a foot injury, so the Panthers may be more inclined to hand the ball to CAP around the goal line.

Chiefs RB Charcandrick West (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. West only played 15 snaps last week, and the ankle injury may have something to do with it. If he’s limited again, look for Spencer Ware to have a big workload against the Steelers, who are #28 in RB aFPA.

Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Bryant played through the injury in Week 3, but that doesn't mean he'll be able to go on Sunday. Dr. David Chao (@ProFootballDoc) said if the "hairline fracture in weight bearing portion of knee, will be a multi-week absence. Can't risk displacement of bone." Our own injury expert, Russell Manalastas (@russmanalastas) said, "Pretty doubtful (he plays), even if fracture isn't in weight bearing area it's unlikely they'll risk making it worse. Location of fracture is important." Ed Werder said that "typical players recover in 1-3 weeks." If the Cowboys are truly "hopeful" that he plays, then the location of the injury is probably not in a bad spot. Of course, it could be gamesmanship if they know he's out and want to force San Francisco to prepare for him. If he sits, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, Jason Witten and Brice Butler would get a bump. Beasley and Witten's role will be largely unchanged, though they may see more targets, while most of Bryant's downfield targets would go to Williams and Butler. In the seven games since 2013 that Dez has missed, Williams has averaged 3.6 catches for 67 yards and 0.29 touchdowns, but he has burned many a fantasy bridge over the years.

Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) did not practice Wednesday. He’ll be out for several weeks. Terrelle Pryor picked up the slack last week.

Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 6:34pm

Jets WR Eric Decker (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Decker apparently aggravated his shoulder injury and will have an MRI to determine the severity. Quincy Enunwa is likely to see a bump in targets if Decker can’t play.

Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 6:34pm

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (achilles) did not practice Wednesday. Doctson’s Achilles injury seems to be getting worse, not better. He’s droppable in most formats.

Wednesday, September 28, 2016, 6:34pm

Broncos WR Bennie Fowler (elbow) practiced fully Wednesday.

Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday.
