Jamie Collins LB NE 8 Hrs

Collins (thigh) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Chiefs.

Collins is out there if you need him Monday, though given that he saw just 20 snaps in Week 3, a wait-and-see approach is in order for IDP owners.

Rob Gronkowski TE NE 8 Hrs

Gronkowski (knee) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Chiefs.

As expected, Gronkowski is good to go Monday, with a potential increase in his snaps a plausible scenario for the tight end in his fourth game of the season.

Sean Smith DB KC 8 Hrs

Smith (groin) is active for Monday's game versus the Patriots, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Smith's groin injury contained the cornerback to limited showings in practice this week. No matter, he's facing the Patriots for the first time since donning a Dolphins uniform as a divisional foe in his first four NFL seasons, during which he didn't pick off Tom Brady but tallied 10 tackles (seven solo) across four tilts.

Tamba Hali LB KC 8 Hrs

Hali (ankle) is active Monday against the Patriots, BJ Kissel of the CHiefs' official site reports.

Through three weeks, Hali has brushed off a swollen knee and an ankle injury en route to 11 tackles (10 solo) and two sacks. His IDP prospects are strong versus an offensive line that has allowed seven sacks and 20 quarterback hits of Tom Brady in three contests.

Jamaal Charles RB KC 8 Hrs16 Comments

Charles (ankle) is active for Monday's game against the Patriots, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Entering Week 4's showdown with the Patriots, Charles logged time at each practice, culminating in Saturday's iteration in which he did "everything" asked of him. As a result, he appears poised to take on a full workload, which has included 15.5 carries and 3.1 receptions (on 4.4 targets) per game in his four full healthy campaigns.

De'Anthony Thomas RB KC 8 Hrs

Thomas (hamstring) is inactive Monday versus the Patriots, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Thomas will continue to sit as a result of a hamstring injury, which first emerged in the latter stages of the preseason. No matter, the return of Jamaal Charles (ankle) to the lineup would have left Thomas third in the RB pecking order behind the Pro Bowler and second-year pro Knile Davis.

The Panthers have signed Ogbonnaya.

Ogbonnaya gives the Panthers' banged up backfield some added depth heading into Week 5, following the team's release of Tauren Poole.

Craig Loston DB JAC 8 Hrs

The Jaguars signed Loston off the practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

The rookie out of LSU will return to the Jaguars after being active for Week 2 against the Redskins, when Jonathan Cyprien was out with a concussion. He'll provide depth at safety behind Cyprien and Josh Evans.
