Tennessean - [Full Article]

The Titans are suddenly thin at wide receiver after placing Tajae Sharpe and Harry Douglas on injured reserve.

Sharpe was placed on season-ending IR Saturday with a foot injury as part of the team’s cuts to a 53-man roster. Douglas was placed on IR Sunday with a knee injury. Because he made the initial 53-man roster, he is eligible to return this season.

Related players: Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker, Corey Davis, Eric Weems, Taywan Taylor

Fantasy Impact:

Both Davis and Decker are coming off injuries leaving Taylor and Matthews as the team's only completely healthy WRs. Weems is more of a special teams and return specialist.

Falcons WR Harry Douglas unable to return after injuring foot

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Falcons WR Harry Douglas left Thursday night’s game against the Buccaneers with a left foot injury. The team announced his return was questionable.

The wide receiver was injured in the second quarter on a downfield route. He had to be helped off the field and was immediately taken to the locker room. He initially appeared unable to put any weight on the foot.

Fantasy Impact:

Douglas posted 2-14-1 prior to leaving with the injury. Devin Hester saw more work in his absence, but only saw one target on the night. Eric Weems managed 4-69 on five targets with Douglas missing from the lineup.

Newark Star-Ledger - [Full Article]

Former Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes has agreed to terms with the Bears, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Bears visit the Jets in Week 3 – a Monday night game on Sept. 22. Both teams will be interested to see how much Holmes has left.

Holmes does not figure to be a major contributor initially for the Bears. Their top receivers are Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, whom the Jets passed on in the 2012 draft, to select Stephen Hill. (To this point, Jeffery has been far more productive than Hill).

Fantasy Impact:

The Bears' second-string receivers are Marquess Wilson and Eric Weems, with Josh Bellamy and Josh Morgan occupying the third line on the depth chart. Wilson, the leading candidate to be the team's No. 3 receiver, sustained a broken collarbone earlier this month in a training camp practice. It remains unclear how long Wilson will be out, but the Bears don't expect to begin the season with him.

With Bears WR Marquess Wilson expected to miss time in the regular season because of a broken collarbone at camp, competition has opened up for the No. 3 receiver position. Eric Weems appears to be the favorite but doesn't exactly stand out as much as he exhibits consistency. Josh Morgan provides flash plays and run-after-catch ability, but he lacks Weems' consistency. Josh Bellamy, Micheal Spurlock and Chris Williams are also in the mix. But expect the team's decision to come down to Weems and Morgan.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson suffered a fractured clavicle, Bears spokesman says. No timetable for his return.

Fantasy Impact:

Wilson is the Bears WR3 and was drawing praise at the spot just a day ago. He should be back at some point this season. Josh Morgan and Eric Weems are next up on the depth chart for the Bears.

ESPN Chicago - [Full Article]

Alshon Jeffery (knee) was inactive for the game.

Jeffery is moving closer to returning from a minor knee procedure he underwent on Nov. 21 that was expected to sideline him for 2-4 weeks. The rookie wideout did some light running on Saturday and ran routes during pregame warmups on Sunday. There is a chance he is cleared to resume practicing at some point this week.

Fantasy Impact:

With Earl Bennett possibly out, Eric Weems and Dane Sanzenbacher are the club's only other options behind starter Brandon Marshall.

Bears lose Forte, Hester to injuries

Sunday, November 25, 2012, 6:21pm

The News Tribune - [Full Article]

The Chicago Bears suffered a rash of injuries in Sunday's win over Minnesota, losing returner/receiver Devin Hester, running back Matt Forte and cornerback Charles Tillman.

Hester left early with what was later termed as a concussion and was replaced by Eric Weems.

Forte departed the game in the third quarter with an ankle issue and had lost a fumble in the first half. Running back Michael Bush, who had two first half touchdown runs, took over full-time duties after that.

Tillman also left the game with an ankle injury while guards Chris Spencer and Lance Louis also departed the contest with knee ailments.

Fantasy Impact:

Michael Bush is an obvious pickup if Forte misses any time with the ankle injury.

There is no doubt that Green Bay has weaker special teams. The Pack allowed a record 102-yard kickoff return to Eric Weems in Atlanta, and in the loss to the Bears, Devin Hester had a 62-yard punt return for a touchdown.

It will be imperative that Packers punter Tim Masthay duplicates his Week 17 effort against Hester. In that game, Masthay, who didn’t punt once against the Falcons, kicked to Hester eight times and the Bear returned only two. Masthay put four punts inside the 20-yard line, two of them inside the five, and had a touchback. The Packers totally bottled up Hester. “The objective, when you’ve got a guy who can change the game the way Devin can, is you’ve got to limit the space that he has to operate in,” Slocum said. “And, No. 2, limit the total number of return opportunities.”

WR Roddy White Questionable for Monday Night

Saturday, December 25, 2010, 6:31pm - [Full Article]

Injury Report for Monday Night - Saints @ Falcons

New Orleans Saints


TE Dave Thomas


RB Chris Ivory


LB Danny Clark
DT Sedrick Ellis
CB Jabari Greer
DT Tony Hargrove
WR Robert Meachem
LB Kawika Mitchell
WR Courtney Roby
LB Jonathan Vilma
DT Remi Ayodele
OT Charles Brown

Atlanta Falcons


DE John Abraham
DT Jonathan Babineaux
LB Curtis Lofton
FB Ovie Mughelli
WR Eric Weems
WR Roddy White

Fantasy Impact:

There is no indication at all that White will miss Monday night's game. Plan on starting him as you normally would, but if you have a roster spot to spare, it wouldn't be a bad idea to add one of the secondary Atlanta or New Orleans receivers just in case.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 7:44pm

Falcons WR Michael Jenkins (quadricep) took limited reps Wednesday. Jenkins should play, but isn't a fantasy option except in the deepest of formats. Eric Weems (pectoral) also was limited.

Falcons WR Eric Weems (head questionable) did not practice Friday.

Gonzalez wants the milestone

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Tight end Tony Gonzalez hopes he can play this week and get the four catches he needs to reach 1,000 for his career.

"Yeah, that's part of the motivation," said Gonzalez, who's battling back from calf injury. "It's a milestone. It's a great milestone. I would love to be able to get it done this year."

Gonzalez, running back Michael Turner (ankle), linebacker Curtis Lofton (shoulder/hamstring), defensive tackle Thomas Johnson (knee), wide receiver Eric Weems (head) and Peprah (hamstring) did not practice.
