IRDenzel Perryman LB LAC (9) 7 minutes ago
Perryman (ankle) is currently on schedule in his recovery from ankle surgery, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Head coach Anthony Lynn added that Perryman "may be ahead of schedule." The 23-year-old still has a long way to go in his recovery from mid-August ankle surgery, but if all goes well he could potentially be designated to return off injured reserve following Week 8.
QAlfred Blue RB HOU (7) 9 minutes ago
Blue (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Blue has been limited in both of the Texans' practices this week, but the expectation is that he'll dress for Sunday's game against the Patriots. However, coach Bill O'Brien clarified Wednesday that Lamar Miller and D'Onta Foreman are his top two running backs on the depth chart, which will put Blue in line to see most of his duties on special teams once he's healthy. That will effectively take Blue off the fantasy radar until one of Miller or Forearm succumbs to an injury of their own.
DSterling Moore DB NO (5) 12 minutes ago
Moore (pectoral) was a limited participant at the Saints' practice Thursday.
Practicing even on a limited basis is a fantastic sign for Moore, who was reportedly expected to miss a couple weeks. It's unclear how Thursday's practice affects the 27-year-old's timeline to return, but at this point he is still not expected to play against the Panthers on Sunday.
QTerron Ward RB ATL (5) 19 minutes ago
Ward sustained neck and shoulder injuries and was a limited participant at practice Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The fact Ward was still a limited participant suggests the injuries aren't overly serious, but his status for Sunday's game against the Lions is unclear. The 25-year-old is mostly a special teams player at this point, and Atlanta's offensive gameplan is unlikely to change much in his absence.
QJesse James TE PIT (9) 21 minutes ago
James (ankle) returned to a limited practice Thursday.
James is trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Bears approaches, but we'll have to see if he draws an official questionable designation for the contest come Friday, or is simply removed from the Steelers' Week 3 injury report.
Damien Williams RB MIA (1) 32 minutes ago
Williams (ribs) practiced fully Thursday.
Williams is off the fantasy radar as long as Jay Ajayi is healthy enough to play. With that in mind, Ajayi has miss back-to-back practices, but the knee issue that's slowed him this week is not considered serious.
DJeff Allen HOU (7) 34 minutes ago
Allen (ankle) did not practice again Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Allen has not practiced since sustaining the injury in the Texans' season opener and now reportedly could be out a few more games, as well. It has yet to be confirmed by the team, but the 27-year-old doesn't seem likely to play against the Patriots on Sunday, regardless.
LeSean McCoy RB BUF (6) 35 minutes ago
McCoy, who missed Wednesday's practice as a scheduled rest day, practiced fully Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
McCoy was listed with a (wrist) next to his name, but that's seemingly soreness stemming from a Week 1 ding, just like the minor groin issue that sidelined him for a practice next week. The Buffalo offense revolves around McCoy, plan and simple, and rest days are going to be part of his routine throughout the season.
QTashaun Gipson DB JAC (8) 36 minutes ago
Gipson (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Edward Lee of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Gipson sat out Wednesday's practice, so his return Thursday, even on a limited basis, is a good sign heading into the weekend. Gipson played all 68 defensive snaps for the Jaguars in their Week 2 loss to the Titans despite the injury, so the team is likely just taking precautionary measures with the cornerback heading into this week's matchup with the Ravens.
Allen Hurns WR JAC (8) 39 minutes ago
Hurns (shoulder) practiced fully Thursday.
Now that Allen Robinson is on IR, Hurns finds himself back in the fantasy discussion, in the Jaguars' starting lineup opposite Marqise Lee. Hurns was on the field for 88 percent of the Jaguars' snaps on offense in Week 2, catching six of his seven targets for 82 yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Titans. He's good to go for Week 3's game at Wembley Stadium in London, but his matchup against a rugged Baltimore defense is less than ideal.
