KEY IN­JURIES

-

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.
