NFL Recent Player News
|9/25/2017||Darren McFadden, Dal, RB|
|McFadden is inactive for Monday night's game against the Cardinals.
Analysis: He isn't believed to be hurt, so it's likely just a healthy scratch.
|9/25/2017||Mike Iupati, Ari, G|
|Iupati will miss Monday's game against Dallas due to a triceps injury.
Analysis: The four-time Pro Bowl guard also sat out last week's win at Indianapolis. With Iupati and left tackle D.J. Humphries both inactive, Arizona's usually lethargic running game could have even more trouble gaining yards.
|9/25/2017||Jermaine Gresham, Ari, TE|
|Gresham is active for Monday's game against Dallas.
Analysis: The veteran tight end missed last week's win at Indianapolis with a rib injury and was listed questionable for the Week 3 matchup. Gresham usually isn't a great bet for fantasy success, though there's a chance he could be more involved in the passing game with John Brown (quadriceps) sidelined.
|9/25/2017||Tank Carradine, SF, DE|
|The 49ers have placed Carradine on injured reserve with an ankle injury.
Analysis: Carradine got hurt Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams. He will be eligible to return in eight weeks if San Francisco chooses to designate him as one of two players eligible to return from injured reserve. Carradine recorded seven tackles and a sack while starting two of the three games this season.
|9/25/2017||Gerald McCoy, TB, DT|
|McCoy (ankle) played at Minnesota on Sunday but left the stadium in a walking boot after aggravating the existing injury.
Analysis: He's unlikely to practice this week.
|9/25/2017||Kwon Alexander, TB, LB|
|Alexander (hamstring) could miss Week 4.
Analysis: Alexander did not play Sunday at Minnesota and was limited to only 40 snaps in Week 2, when he had an interception against the Bears.
|9/25/2017||Noah Spence, TB, DE|
|Spence (shoulder) could miss Week 4.
Analysis: Spence has the Bucs' only sack and has forced a fumble in the first two games.
|9/25/2017||Lavonte David, TB, LB|
|David could miss 4-6 weeks with a high ankle sprain suffered Sunday in Tampa Bay's loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Analysis: Coach Dirk Koetter said the Buccaneers are hopeful their leading tackler could return sooner than the typical timeframe of at least one month because X-rays were negative.
|9/25/2017||Kelvin Benjamin, Car, WR|
|Benjamin dodged serious injury Sunday but his left knee injury could be an issue entering Week 4, coach Ron Rivera said on Monday. Rivera said Benjamin underwent an MRI exam and it "came back pretty good" after some feared the Panthers' leading receiver sustained another major knee injury in Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Analysis: Benjamin, who tore the ACL in his left knee in 2015, has nine catches for 110 yards in three games this season.
|9/25/2017||Quintin Demps, Chi, S|
|Demps suffered a broken arm in the 23-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and will be out an indefinite period of time.
Analysis: Bears coach John Fox did not characterize Demps' injury as a season-ending one. Demps came out in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win and was replaced by former starter Adrian Amos. A 10-year veteran, Demps was acquired from Houston after the Bears struggled to defend against the pass and made a franchise record-low eight interceptions each of the last two seasons.
|9/25/2017||Darren Sproles, Phi, RB|
|Sproles tore his ACL and broke his wrist on the same play in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Analysis: Coach Doug Pederson confirmed the injuries Monday, saying it's a "devastating" loss. The versatile Sproles has nine returns for touchdowns, including seven on punts. The 34-year-old veteran went to three Pro Bowls, including last season when he had a career-high 94 carries.
|9/24/2017||Corey Grant, Jax, RB|
|Corey Grant ran for 75 yards on six carries Sunday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 44-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He added one reception for 18 yards.
Analysis: With the Jags ahead early, Grant got some decent work but Leonard Fournette is still the class of this outfit.
|9/24/2017||Chris Ivory, Jax, RB|
|Chris Ivory ran for 17 yards on six carries Sunday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 44-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He added two receptions for 25 yards.|
|9/24/2017||Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB|
|Leonard Fournette ran for 59 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries Sunday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 44-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He added three receptions for 21 yards.
Analysis: He became the first Jaguars player to rush for a touchdown in each of his first three games.
|9/24/2017||Joe Flacco, Bal, QB|
|Joe Flacco was 8 of 18 for 28 yards and didn't throw a touchdown pass Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 44-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He threw two interceptions, didn't fumble and was sacked two times.
Analysis: Flacco likley isn't started in standard leagues, so most fantasy players weren't hurt by this awful performance. Baltimore crossed midfield three times _ and not until the third quarter. The 28 passing yards are a career low.
|9/24/2017||Danny Amendola, NE, WR|
|Amendola, who missed a game with a concussion, was active for the New England Patriots as they faced the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Analysis: Amendola was out last week with a concussion and knee injury.
|9/24/2017||Rob Gronkowski, NE, TE|
|Gronkowski, who suffered a groin injury last week in New Orleans, was active for the New England Patriots as they faced the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Analysis: Gronkowski was listed as questionable after being bothered by a groin injury.
|9/24/2017||Blake Bortles, Jax, QB|
|Bortles was 20 of 31 for 244 yards and threw four touchdown passes Sunday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 44-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was not sacked. Bortles added 18 rushing yards on three carries.
Analysis: This was the third time Bortles threw four TDs in a game.
|9/24/2017||Ryan Mallett, Bal, QB|
|Mallett was 6 of 9 for 36 yards and threw one touchdown pass Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens' 44-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was not sacked.
Analysis: Mallett did more in mop up duty than Joe Flacco - 28 yards passing - did as a starter.
|9/24/2017||Chad Henne, Jax, QB|
|Chad Henne was 0 of 2 for 0 yards and didn't throw a touchdown pass Sunday in the Jacksonville Jaguars' 44-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was not sacked.|
