9/20/2018 Rob Gronkowski, NE, TE
Gronkowski (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: It's hard to tell at the moment if a new injury cropped up or if he's just getting a bit of a rest. He has started both games for New England this season. He has nine catches for 138 yards and touchdown.
9/20/2018 C.J. Mosley, Bal, LB
Mosley, hobbled by a bone bruise in his left knee that forced him to exit Baltimore's Week 2 game at Cincinnati, resumed practicing on a limited basis Thursday.

Analysis: Mosley, the Ravens' leader with 132 tackles in 2017, reportedly was still favoring his leg and his status for Sunday's game against Denver remains in doubt. On the positive side, the valuable linebacker did not suffer any ligament damage and may just miss one game at the most.
9/20/2018 Donte Jackson, Car, CB
Jackson missed a second straight practice Thursday due to a groin injury.

Analysis: Jackson, a second-round pick in this year's draft, has started the Panthers' first two games but may be held out of Sunday's matchup with Cincinnati. A.J. Green is a must fantasy start regardless of who lines up opposite him, but he appears primed for another big day this week.
9/20/2018 Da'Norris Searcy, Car, S
Searcy, who sustained a concussion in last week's game at Atlanta, did not practice for a second straight day Thursday.

Analysis: Searcy seems unlikely to be cleared for this week's game against Cincinnati. The injury-plagued Panthers could be down two starters in the secondary for that one, as rookie cornerback Donte Jackson is dealing with a groin injury.
9/19/2018 Jack Doyle, Ind, TE
Doyle did not practice Wednesday due to an injured hip.

Analysis: The tight end took all but two of the Colts' offensive snaps in Sunday's win at Washington, so this could just be a rest day. Doyle has recorded nine catches for 80 yards through the first two weeks.
9/19/2018 T.Y. Hilton, Ind, WR
Hilton did not practice Wednesday because of a quadriceps injury.

Analysis: Hilton wasn't limited in Sunday's win at Washington, in which he hauled in 7-of-11 targets for 83 yards and caught a touchdown pass for a second straight week. The Colts could be just giving him a maintenance day, though fantasy owners should keep an eye on the situation over the next few days.
9/19/2018 Giovani Bernard, Cin, RB
Bernard was a full participant in Thursday's practice after being a limited participant Wednesday due to a knee injury.

Analysis: Bernard is still fully expected to play this week and should get plenty of touches with Joe Mixon recovering from a recent knee scope. He's definitely back on the fantasy radar.
9/19/2018 Connor Barwin, NYG, LB
Barwin did not practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: The veteran has been starting in place of Olivier Vernon, who appears likely to miss a third straight game with a high ankle sprain. It's unclear if Barwin's injury will cause him to miss any game time as well.
9/19/2018 Evan Engram, NYG, TE
Engram was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: The fact that Engram did practice some bodes well for his chances of playing Sunday at Houston. The second-year tight end has caught Eli Manning's lone touchdown pass through two games and has 85 yards on nine receptions.
9/19/2018 Dalvin Cook, Min, RB
Cook did not practice for a second straight day Thursday with a hamstring injury he sustained in overtime of the Vikings' tie at Green Bay last week.

Analysis: Cook said his absence near the end of last week's game was just due to cramping, but there's a chance it's a bit more serious. Latavius Murray would be a solid play if Cook is held out of Sunday's game against the downtrodden Bills.
9/19/2018 Case Keenum, Den, QB
Keenum won't practice Wednesday due to a sore knee, but he's expected to return Thursday.

Analysis: Keenum still seems certain to start Sunday at Baltimore. The 2017 breakout star has had an up-and-down first two games as a Bronco, as he's thrown for 551 yards and three touchdowns but has been picked off four times.
9/19/2018 Damarious Randall, Cle, CB
The Browns have listed Randall as questionable for Thursday's game against the Jets, though he didn't practice all week with a heel injury.

Analysis: Randall, Cleveland's starting free safety, looks to be a true game-time decision. He's played very well over the first two games, recording nine tackles and an interception, and his possible absence could make for an easier matchup for Jets rookie Sam Darnold.
9/19/2018 Billy Price, Cin, C
Price, who injured his right foot in the Bengals' Week 2 win over Baltimore, is in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Analysis: The good news is Price, Cincinnati's starting center and first-round pick in this year's draft, did not suffer a Lisfranc injury and won't need surgery. The bad news is the Bengals' offense noticeably struggled after the rookie exited last week's game.
9/19/2018 Thomas Rawls, Cin, RB
The Bengals have signed Rawls.

Analysis: Rawls rushed for 830 yards and four touchdowns during a promising rookie season with Seattle in 2015, but his career has been derailed by injuries since. He'll compete with rookie Mark Walton for backup duty behind Giovani Bernard until Joe Mixon returns from his knee injury, a role that likely won't give Rawls much fantasy potential.
9/19/2018 Aaron Jones, GB, RB
Jones, suspended for the season's first two games for a substance abuse violation, will be on the Packers' active roster for Sunday's game at Washington. However, coach Mike McCarthy said the running back will start out behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery on the depth chart.

Analysis: "Jamaal and Ty have played good football. I know what Aaron gives us, but his role will be secondary," McCarthy said. "Jamaal and Ty will be in the first slot." Jones averaged 5.5 yards per carry as a rookie last season, but right now he's strictly a handcuff for fantasy purposes.
9/19/2018 Kelvin Benjamin, Buf, WR
Benjamin was a full participant in Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday because of a hip injury.

Analysis: Benjamin is still expected to play Sunday at Minnesota. Though the 6-foot-5 wideout leads the Bills with 10 targets through two games, he's managed just three catches thus far and is touchdown-dependent for fantasy value at this point.
9/19/2018 Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Jax, TE
Seferian-Jenkins (core muscle) practiced Thursday.

Analysis: He's caught six passes for 48 yards and a TD in the first two games.
9/19/2018 T.J. Yeldon, Jax, RB
Yeldon (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday and appears good to go for Sunday against the Titans.

Analysis: Yeldon has rushed 24 times for 109 yards in the first two games with Leonard Fournette dealing with a hamstring injury. Fournette has returned to practice this week.
9/19/2018 Leonard Fournette, Jax, RB
Fournette returned to practice Wednesday, a step toward playing against AFC South rival Tennessee.

Analysis: Fournette, who strained his right hamstring in the season opener at the New York Giants and missed last week's victory against the New England Patriots, was officially listed as limited. He ran nine times for 41 yards in the opener before getting hurt.
9/19/2018 Jordan Matthews, Phi, WR
The Philadelphia Eagles have signed Matthews.

Analysis: Matthews played his first three seasons with the Eagles before he was traded to Buffalo in August 2017. He signed with the Patriots in April but was released during training camp. A 2014 second-round pick from Vanderbilt, Matthews averaged 75 receptions, 891 yards and six touchdowns per season in Philadelphia. He had 25 catches for 282 yards and one TD in 10 games for Buffalo.
