WR Sammy Watkins, Bills His surgically repaired foot flared up in last weekend’s opener. Short turnaround time makes him risky start vs. Jets.
TE Rob Gronkowski, Patriots Sore hamstring still isn’t allowing him to practice fully. At least we’ll know his status before early games kick off.
RB Chris Ivory, Jaguars Released from hospital after dealing with unspecified ailment. T.J. Yeldon will remain workhorse for now.
QB Robert Griffin III, Browns Lasted one week as starter before shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve. Josh McCown takes over.
WR Julio Jones, Falcons Ankle injury will limit his practice time, but matchup vs. Raiders secondary should be plenty of incentive to heal.
WR Markus Wheaton, Steelers After shoulder issues kept him out of opener, he’s close to full strength and return to spot as No. 2 wideout.
WR Demaryius Thomas, Broncos Exam showed no structural damage in his sore hip, but pain is still issue. A potential problem all season.
QB Russell Wilson, Seahawks Visibly slowed by sprained ankle in late stages of opener. Fantasy value will take hit if he’s hesitant to run.
