Rams receiver Robert Woods left the locker room with a sling on his left arm after suffering a shoulder injury during the fourth quarter of a 24-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Fantasy Impact:

Rams coach Sean McVay said that he was uncertain about the severity of Woods’ injury. The Rams host a huge, later afternoon game on Sunday against the Saints, so owners will have to monitor the situation this week.

Vikes Beat: There shouldn't be a QB debate

“It’s going to be hard to yank him out of there right now,” coach Mike Zimmer acknowledged about QB Case Keenum.

This shouldn’t be a conversation anymore. Keenum continues to look unflappable in the face of this unique situation. He’s handled constant questions about his job status with patience. He doesn’t appear bothered by Teddy Bridgewater’s presence over his shoulder or a popular public opinion that the team is waiting for him to fail to make a switch.

Fantasy Impact:

Keenum again played well in the Vikings win over the Rams, a team they could be battling with for home field advantage and even a bye. Anything can happen, but it doesn't appear the team is going to make a switch as long as Keenum is winning games.

In need of another running back, the Redskins are signing Byron Marshall of the Eagles practice squad, according to a person with knowledge of the situation on Tuesday.

Washington has just two healthy running backs on the active roster after Rob Kelley suffered a medial collateral ligament sprain and aggravated his sprained ankle in Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Kelley left the locker room on crutches and a walking boot on his left foot. Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said on Monday that Kelley is expected to miss a few weeks following a MRI exam.

That left the Redskins with only rookie Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson at running back. They previously had Mack Brown as their fourth back, but they waived him on Oct. 28 to add depth to their depleted offensive line. Two days later, Brown was claimed by the Vikings. Washington has since worked out a number of running backs to have a third option on the practice squad, but never signed one.

La Canfora: Vikes will stick with Case Keenum at QB

Vikings will be sticking with Case Keenum as their starter this week I'm told.

Related players: Teddy Bridgewater

Fantasy Impact:

According to La Canfora's tweet, the Vikings feel Keenum has been highly productive, is clicking with receivers, and is a great fit in the scheme. HC Mike Zimmer opened the door when he said he's going to handle the QB situation day-by-day. There was also a Jay Glazer report on Sunday the team feels Bridgewater is their franchise QB, but it's hard to pull the trigger with Keenum playing well right now. Looks like Keenum gets another week.

Vikings to evaluate QB on day-to-day basis

HC Mike Zimmer has said the Vikings will evaluate who will start each game, between Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater, on a "day-to-day" basis. After the game Sunday, Zimmer revealed that he still isn't ready to detail much of his strategy, but he might have given an important clue about where it's headed.

"I've got a plan, and we'll just see how it goes," Zimmer said. "Sometimes plans change. We'll see how it goes, and we'll sit down this week, and we'll visit about it and go from there."

Fantasy Impact:

Fox's Jay Glazer said following this week's Falcons-Cowboys broadcast, the Vikings see Bridgewater as the franchise QB. Keenum played well this week and threw for four TDs, but did have two INTs on back-to-back drives in the second half that did give the Skins some life. It's hard to see this as good news for Keenum going forward, even after playing very well once Sam Bradford went down. Seems like it's only a matter of time before Bridgewater is back under center.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (tooth) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Diggs doesn’t typically play well when on the injury report, but we aren’t going to hold a root canal against him. He should be dialed up as a high-end WR2 in a fairly tough matchup against Washington.

Friday, November 10, 2017, 5:53pm

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) took full practice reps all week. Bridgewater could return as soon as this week, though Case Keenum is expected to draw another start.

Friday, November 10, 2017, 5:53pm

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 10. Reed may be able to return this week, though the missed practice on Friday is a little worrisome. It’s possible that the team decided to let him rest up for Sunday. If he’s out, Vernon Davis is a solid TE1 play against the Vikings. Washington plays in the early round of games, which is good for owners.

Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell (toe) took full practice reps all week.

Vikings WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) took full practice reps all week.

Thursday, November 9, 2017, 6:46pm

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Reed is tentatively on track to return in Week 10. He’s a dicey start against the Vikings.

Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell (toe) took full practice reps again Thursday.

Vikings WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) took full practice reps again Thursday.

Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (tooth) was added to the injury report Thursday after taking limited practice reps. Diggs typically does not play as well when listed on the injury report during the week, but we’re not going to downgrade him for a tooth injury. He should be a good start despite a tough matchup against Josh Norman and Co.

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. Bridgewater could return as soon as this week, though Case Keenum is expected to draw another start.
