Week 10: Fantasy Football News (Wednesday)


Brent Celek, who appeared to be in considerable pain on Sunday night, suffered a rib fracture in the loss to the Giants, head coach Doug Pederson said. Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who sprained his left MCL in last week’s loss at Miami, believes he will be healthy enough to play Sundayagainst the Rams, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder. Jeremy Maclin (groin) is considered day-to-day, but head coach Andy Reid says it’s not out of the question that he misses further time, Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. Maclin was forced out during the first quarter of Sunday’swin over the Jaguars due to a groin injury that first surfaced last week. The ailment prevented him from practicing Thursday and could impact his involvement this week as well. Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) looks like a long shot to return for Sunday’s game against the Bears. Terrelle Pryor(hamstring) was listed as a limited participant on Monday’s estimated practice report. Pryor caught five passes for 47 yards and a TD in Sunday’sloss to the Cowboys, and with no reported setbacks in that contest, we suspect that the wideout should be fine for Thursday’s game against the Ravens. We’ll let you know if that assessment changes. On Friday, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said on national radio he was “hopeful” that injured RB Doug Martin “maybe has a shot” at returning for a home game against the Bears after missing six games with a hamstring injury. But if Bucs fans had hopes Martin would return this week, there was no indication of that Monday as Martin and Jacquizz Rodgers were still absent when the Bucs returned to practice. The Chiefs might have to forge onward through another week without running back Spencer Ware, who remains in the concussion protocol, as far as Reid knows. Crockett Gillmore (thigh) is not practicing Tuesday, ESPN’s Jamison Hensley reports. Gillmore has been listed as a non-participant at every practice since Baltimore’s Week 8 bye, leaving his availability in serious question for Thursday against the Browns. Two Jaguars wide receivers suffered suspected concussions during Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs. Allen Hurns and Bryan Walters are both in the NFL’s concussion protocol, the team announced. Falcons running back Tevin Coleman (hamstring) and defensive end Dwight Freeney (thigh) did not participate in the portion of practice open to media today. Both players were working on the side with trainers. Coleman has missed the past two games because of his injury. Coach Dan Quinn said the plan was for Coleman to try to practice today and then reevaluate his injury later in the week. Thomas Rawls isn’t expected back for this week’s game at New England, but he should return to practice with a chance to play in Seattle’s Week 11 game against the Eagles. Titans rookie running back Derrick Henry had an MRI that confirmed that his left calf injury is a strain. “That’s kind of an injury that a lot of it is pain tolerance,” coach Mike Mularkey said Monday. “It could be a day up to a couple weeks. We’ll monitor that as we go.”
