Alshon Jeffery WR CHI 2 Days5 Comments
Jeffery (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Friday.
Considering he suited up in Sunday's game against the 49ers and has two limited practices logged heading into Saturday, Jeffery appears likely to suit up against the Jets on Monday. He's still looking for his first touchdown of the year after catching eight passes for 118 yards.
Brandon Marshall WR CHI 2 Days2 Comments
Marshall (ankle) did not practice Friday.
Marshall didn't practice at all in advance of Sunday's three-touchdown effort against the 49ers, so it's not surprising that he's sitting out practice so far this week, particularly with Chicago playing a Monday game. It would be very reassuring if Marshall logged some practice time Saturday, in any case.
Dee Milliner DB NYJ 2 Days
Milliner (ankle/quad) missed Friday's practice, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
"I mean, the fact that he didn't practice today is not a great sign, but I'm hopeful he plays," coach Rex Ryan noted Friday, with regard to the cornerback's Week 3 availability. More on Milliner's status for Monday's game against the Bears after Saturday's practice, but if he unable to suit up for the contest, Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls would be in line for added snaps.
Jared Allen DL CHI 2 Days
Allen (back) practiced fully Friday.
With his full practice Friday, Allen should tentatively be expected to suit up for Monday's game against the Jets. Although he has four tackles and a forced fumble heading into Week 3, Allen is still looking for his first sack as a Chicago Bear.
Ramon Humber LB NO 2 Days
With David Hawthorne ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Humber will likely start at inside linebacker.
Humber could have some IDP value as a spot-starter in place of the injured Hawthorne, who's dealing with a balky hamstring. In three starts last season, Humber made 14 total tackles.
Frostee Rucker DL ARI 2 Days
Rucker (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Rucker made just one limited practice appearance all week, so he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday's game.
Chris Johnson RB NYJ 2 Days
Johnson (ankle) was limited at practice Friday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
We'll revisit Johnson's status Saturday, but a probable injury designation would no doubt be of comfort to his fantasy owners in advance of Monday night's contest against the Bears.
Rob Housler TE ARI 2 Days
Housler (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Housler didn't practice Thursday or Friday, so it's possible that he's close to doubtful. With just three targets in two games, he's pretty much off the fantasy radar, anyway.
Eric Decker WR NYJ 2 Days1 Comment
Decker (hamstring) missed practice again Friday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
The report adds that Decker was spotted running and cutting during the media-access portion of Friday's practice, with coach Rex Ryan noting that the wideout doesn't necessarily have to practice in order to play in Monday night's game against the Bears. "He's a veteran," Ryan said of Decker. "You'd like your guys to practice, there's no doubt. But if a guy can't I'm not gonna say he absolutely can't play. I'm not gonna back myself into that corner." More on Decker's status after Saturday's practice, but the Jets' Monday night kickoff makes rolling with Decker this week a tricky option for fantasy owners if he continues to remain iffy in advance of that contest.
Andre Ellington RB ARI 2 Days2 Comments
Ellington (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
A matchup with the 49ers in a Drew Stanton-led offense aren't ideal circumstances for Ellington, but the big-play back is ready to give it his best shot. Ellington is running strong through his foot injury, totaling 144 yards on 28 carries (5.1 YPC) and catching six passes for 37 yards.
