Greg Salas WR NYJ 21 Hrs
Salas (wrist) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, the Jets' official site reports.
With the Jets' acquisition of Percy Harvin, Salas now has another wideout (to go along with Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley) obstructing his path to fantasy reliability.
Bilal Powell RB NYJ 21 Hrs
Powell, who left last Thursday's game against the Patriots with a foot injury, practiced fully Wednesday, the Jets' official site reports.
Given that he slots in behind both Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson in the team's RB pecking order, Powell's current status is of more import to the Jets' backfield depth than it is to fantasy owners.
Eric Decker WR NYJ 21 Hrs
Decker (hamstring) was a limited participant Wednesday, the Jets' official site reports.
With no reported setbacks in Week 7's loss to the Patriots, at this stage, we'd expect Decker -- who caught four of seven targets for 65 yards in that contest -- to ultimately draw a probable designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Bills.
Mychal Kendricks LB PHI 22 Hrs
Kendricks (calf) was limited in practice Wednesday.
With back-to-back practices behind him, Kendricks' first appearance since Week 2 appears nigh. If he's given the all clear for Sunday's game in Arizona, he's expected to assume the spot at inside linebacker next to DeMeco Ryans (groin).
Darren Sproles RB PHI 22 Hrs
Sproles (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.
In Week 6, Sproles sustained a slight MCL tear to his left knee, which was expected to knock him out for at least two weeks. However, only a week-and-a-half later, he's logged a capped practice and is angling to play Sunday at Arizona. His activity level in drills will likely indicate whether or not active status is possible, but at the very least, he's now trending in the right direction.
Justin Tucker K BAL 22 Hrs
Tucker made both of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Falcons.
Tucker has struggled a bit more this season, already missing as many field goals through seven games this season (three) as he did in each of the last two. Having said that, he's still tied for second in field goals made, and all of his misses has come from 50+ yards out. Tucker and the Ravens head to Cincinnati this week to face a defense that has allowed 27, 37 and 43 in the last three games.
Dan Carpenter K BUF 22 Hrs
Carpenter made his only field goal attempt from 31 yards out Sunday against the Vikings.
Carpenter is now 14-for-16 on field goals for the season, including one from 58 yards against the Lions. His 14 field goals ties him for fourth most on the season, but he has only attempted 11 extra points, dropping his value in fantasy leagues. The Bills go on the road this week to face the Jets.
Vontaze Burfict LB CIN 22 Hrs
Burfict (neck) was present for practice Wednesday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Burfict has a had a tough time staying on the field this season, but his presence at practice Wednesday does at least appear to confirm that his latest injury (a cervical strain that he sustained in Week 7) is not a major issue.
Sam Shields DB GB 22 Hrs
Shields (knee) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Until Shields takes the practice field, his return to action is up in the air. Prior to suffering a knee injury in the second half, he had tallied 14 tackles (12 solo), six passes defended, and two picks in five-plus games, making him a viable IDP, when healthy.
Trent Richardson RB IND 22 Hrs
Coach Chuck Pagano indicated that he hopes Richardson (hamstring) can practice Thursday, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.
Adding plausibility to that possible outcome is that Pagano noted Wednesday that Richardson's current hamstring injury isn't nearly as bad as the one that the running back dealt with during training camp, an issue that forced Richardson to miss about a week.
