Bears RB Matt Forte (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Friday. No worries here.

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. It’s a good sign for Foster’s availability on Monday night.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Gerhart is doubtful to return this week. HC Gus Bradley said that the team would use a three-man committee in the backfield, with Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson splitting work on first and second down with Jordan Todman coming on third downs. This is a mess.

Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 7. If Greene remains out, which seems very likely, then Bishop Sankey should continue to see extra work as the team’s feature back. His matchup against the Redskins isn’t favorable, but he’s usable as a flex/RB3 this week.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 7. Ingram should return to his lead back role, though he doesn’t have a good matchup against a stout Lions rush defense. There is also the possibility that the Saints ease him back into the lineup by giving Khiry Robinson extra work.

Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee, out) has been ruled out for Week 7. Andre Williams should see 15-20 carries as the Giants’ feature back.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (not injury related, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 7. OC Darrell Bevell said that he needs to do a better job of getting the ball to Lynch. Lynch has seen 15 or fewer carries five times since 2012 and in the following game he has averaged 20.4 carries.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Mathews still isn’t running on his injured knee. It looks like Branden Oliver will continue to be the lead back through Week 9, maybe longer. We were expecting Mathews to be further along in his recovery by now, but knee injuries are tricky. He was expected to miss 4-5 weeks, and he is now in the middle of the 5th week of his recovery.

Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (knee, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 7. Miller is a borderline RB1 now that Knowshon Moreno is out for the season. The probable tag indicates that he should be fine to face the Bears.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray (illness, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 7. No worries here. Murray should be in line for another huge workload against the Giants.

Panthers RB Darrin Reaves (calf, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 7. Reaves is now looking doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Packers. Chris Ogbonnaya would back up Jonathan Stewart, who is expected to make his return this week.

Raiders RB Marcel Reece (quadricep, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Lions RB Theo Riddick (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 7. Reggie Bush is back in the fold, so Riddick wasn’t going to be much of a fantasy factor even if he did play.

Friday, October 17, 2014, 6:20pm

Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 7. Stacy will play, but his role is unclear after he lost touches to Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason in Week 6. This is turning into a messy RBBC.
