David Ausberry TE OAK 1 Day
Ausberry (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns.
As expected, Ausberry will sit after hurting his foot in Week 7, an injury which interim coach Tony Sparano said "could be serious." The door is thus open for Mychal Rivera and perhaps Brian Leonhardt to play additional snaps in the weeks ahead.
Eddie Royal WR SD 1 Day
Royal had three catches on three targets for 29 yards in Thursday night's loss at Denver.
The pecking order in San Diego is fairly clear and consistent with Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd serving as the wide receivers who always receive the most targets and Antonio Gates getting his fair share of looks from the tight end position. The Bolts also like to throw to their running backs a fair amount, so there typically isn't too much left for Royal after all is said and done. Since a spectacular Week 4 performance, Royal has averaged just two catches on three targets over the past four games.
Kam Chancellor DB SEA 1 Day
Chancellor (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.
Chancellor is evidently close to full health after logging two full practices to close out the week, making him a justifiable DB1 consideration in most formats. He has 44 tackles in eight games.
Charles Clay TE MIA 1 Day
Clay (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, the Dolphins' official site reports.
Clay will be out there if you need him Sunday, drawing a favorable matchup on the heels a Week 7 effort against Chicago that saw him catch four passes (on five targets) for a season-high 58 yards and a TD.
Vincent Brown WR OAK 1 Day
Brown (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns.
A limited participant both Wednesday and Thursday, Brown was unable to take the practice field Friday, suggesting the hamstring did not responded especially well throughout the week. Brown is now set to miss a third straight game as a result of the injury, leaving Brice Butler, Denarius Moore and Kenbrell Thompkins to compete for looks behind James Jones and Andre Holmes.
Jonathan Casillas LB TB 1 Day
Casillas (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.
Casillas was a limited practice participant all week, so he should have a decent chance of suiting up. Even if he does, though, he's unlikely to be more than a rotational linebacker.
Shaun Draughn RB SD 1 Day
Draughn did not get a single touch in Thursday night's game at Denver.
It was the second week in a row that Draughn failed to scratch the box score with Ronnie Brown handling a handful of carries in relief of Branden Oliver in both games. With Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown both expected to return from injuries in the coming weeks, it would appear that Draughn is a long way from having any meaningful role on this team.
Dashon Goldson DB TB 1 Day
Goldson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, FOX Sports 1's Jenna Laine reports.
Goldson practiced all week, including a full practice Friday, so it seems like his return should be imminent. It's tough to tell whether Goldson will start over Lovie Smith disciple Major Wright once he's healthy, so it's probably an IDP situation best avoided for the time being.
Justin Houston LB KC 1 Day
Houston (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
Houston was a new addition to the injury report this week with his ankle injury, but he was a full participant in practice all week. He should be fine for Sunday's game barring a setback of some sort.
Ronnie Brown RB SD 1 Day
Brown had one carry for eight yards and caught the lone pass thrown his way for two yards in relief of Branden Oliver on Thursday night in Denver.
Oliver dominated the touches in this game, racking up 13 mostly ineffective carries and catching seven passes. The Bolts faced a tough Denver defense and were trailing for much of the night, so the run game didn't really have a chance to get rolling. With Oliver clearly entrenched as the number one back now and Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown presumably not far from returning, Brown's value appears to be virtually non-existent.
