Jordan Cameron - TE - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns TE Jordan Cameron (concussion) could miss the team's Week 10 game since the game is on Thursday, Nov. 6. Cameron has already been ruled out for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Cameron is out Sunday and could miss next week's game as well. Cameron has been one of the biggest busts of the fantasy season and it doesn't look like that's going to change any time soon.
Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard's (hip) status for Week 10 is uncertain since the game is on Thursday, Nov. 6, and the team will take a wait-and-see approach with him, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Bernard has already been ruled out for Week 9.
Huddle Up: If Bernard can't go, Jeremy Hill would get the start against Cleveland's bottom five rush defense.
Percy Harvin - WR - New York Jets
New York Jets WR Percy Harvin played 44 of 84 snaps in his debut with the team in Week 8, lining up in the backfield and running some deep routes. The Jets are making it a point to immediately get the ball into his hands.
Huddle Up: The Jets won't wait to get Harvin involved. Their season is in shambles and they don't have many playmakers on offense. Expect Harvin to be a big part of the Jets offense going forward.
Kenny Britt - WR - St. Louis Rams
St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt (hip) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Britt is the Rams No. 1 receiver at the moment with Brian Quick out for the season. However, for fantasy purposes he's no more than a risky WR4/5.
Vincent Jackson - WR - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson (rib) fully practiced Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Jackson has been inconsistent this year playing in the Bucs up-and-down passing game but he has a good matchup this week against a shaky Cleveland secondary. Jackson could be in line for a strong performance.
Montee Ball - RB - Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos RB Montee Ball (groin) did not practice Friday, Oct. 31, and has been ruled out for Week 9 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: As expected, Ball will miss Sunday's game against New England. Ronnie Hillman will get the bulk of the carries versus the Patriots. Hillman is cemented as a strong RB2 in Denver's offense.
Isaiah Crowell - RB - Cleveland Browns
Cleveland Browns RB Isaiah Crowell, who played only three snaps and had one carry for one yard in Week 8, is hoping he'll be more involved in the game plan in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Ben Tate played 31 of 56 snaps and had 15 carries for 26 yards last week, while RB Terrance West played 22 snaps and had seven carries for 11 yards. Crowell continues to lead the team in average yards per carry (4.9) and rushing touchdowns (four). He dropped two pitches and had a fumble in Week 6, but Crowell insists that he doesn't have ball-security issues.
Huddle Up: Crowell's lack of Week 8 action was puzzling, especially considering the Browns were in control most of the way against the winless Raiders. Cleveland, though, has struggled mightily on the ground over the last 2 weeks, rushing for only 108 yards on 55 carries in games against Oakland and Jacksonville. See if Crowell and the Browns can turn it around Sunday against the visiting Bucs, who allow the sixth most fantasy points to opposing RBs.
Alex Smith - QB - Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith (shoulder) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Smith will be a full go Sunday and is a sneaky good QB start going against a Jets' defense that is surrendering the second most fantasy points to opposing QBs.
Ryan Mathews - RB - San Diego Chargers
San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 9 game. Mathews is running again in practice. "Being able to run again is encouraging," Mathews said. "That's a big step. I'm very encouraged. The trainers are doing a great job and I'm just following their plan. Every time they put me through something I'm just trying to do my best."
Huddle Up: Mathews, who hasn't played since Week 2, will get an extra 2 weeks of recovery time with the Bolts on bye in Week 10.
Heath Miller - TE - Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Miller will be out there Sunday night against the Ravens, looking to follow up on his best fantasy outing of the year: A 7-112-1 Week 8 performance against the Colts. Baltimore, though, allows the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing TEs.
Reggie Wayne - WR - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow, rest) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31, after sitting out Thursday, Oct. 30.
Huddle Up: Good sign for Wayne, who sat out Week 8. If he can follow this up with another full practice Saturday, consider him good to go -- while downgrading rookie Donte Moncrief -- Monday night against the Giants.
Justin Forsett - RB - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens RB Justin Forsett (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Most all of the concern over Forsett missing Wednesday's practice has evaporated and definitely plan to deploy him as usual Sunday night in Pittsburgh.
Robert Griffin III - QB - Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) received the majority of the first-team repetitions in practice this week, and Griffin feels completely healthy and ready to return to the starting lineup. 'If there is any rust, I'll lean on the guys,' Griffin said. 'It's a game we need. They have a great defense, but I'll lean on my guys to help get me through this game and work with me. I expect them to make a ton of plays, just like they expect me to make a ton of plays. If there is any rust, I'm sure they'll overshadow it because they're playing at a high level right now.' He won't be limited at all, meaning the read-zone option is a possibility, along with plays that require him to leave the pocket.
Huddle Up: In Alfred Morris, TEs Jordan Reed and Niles Paul and a deep WR corps headed by DeSean Jackson, RGIII certainly has a strong supporting cast. Meanwhile, coach Jay Gruden has shown little hesitation about having his QBs on the run -- witness Colt McCoy's 7 rushes in Week 8 -- so expect to see Griffin in full Sunday in Minneapolis.
Doug Martin - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is doubtful for the team's Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Martin has been out all week, and it looks like it'll be the Bobby Rainey show Sunday in Cleveland. Rookie Charles Sims could also see some time, but he's still dealing with his preseason ankle issue and it's still very much uncertain if he'll be ready to make his NFL debut this week.
Jadeveon Clowney - LB - Houston Texans
Updating a previous report, Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney is unlikely to play in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles. 'It doesn't look very good for him playing Sunday,' head coach Bill O'Brien said.
Huddle Up: It's a mixed bag of IDP news here as Clowney reportedly is dealing with an unspecified illness that could keep him out Sunday, according to a Friday ESPN report. At least, however, there doesn't look to be any complications with his surgically-repaired knee that sidelined him from Weeks 2-7 before his return last Sunday.
Owen Daniels - TE - Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore Ravens TE Owen Daniels (knee) returned to practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is considered a game-time decision for the team's Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Daniels missed Week 8 after undergoing an arthroscopic knee procedure, and it wouldn't be shocking to see him sit again this week. The worst news for his fantasy owners is that the Ravens don't play until Sunday night, so the safe play is getting another TE in your lineup now.
Darren Sproles - RB - Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Sproles has practiced in full all week after sitting out the Week 8 game at Arizona, and will return to his usual role spelling LeSean McCoy on Sunday in Houston.
Trent Richardson - RB - Indianapolis Colts
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is not on the injury report for Week 9, and should be able to play Monday, Nov. 3.
Huddle Up: Richardson is primed to return after sitting out Week 8 and is a decent low-end RB2/flex option Monday night against the Giants.
A.J. Green - WR - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe), who has missed the last three games with an injured big toe on his right foot, is expected to play, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. 'If everything stays the way it is, he'll play,' Lewis said. Green has practiced all week and hasn't shown any setbacks.
Huddle Up: Green owners can prepare to have him back in their lineups following a 3-game absence, but be wary that the WR could re-aggravate the injury at any time.
Giovani Bernard - RB - Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a hip-pointer injury.
Huddle Up: Bernard will miss his game as a pro, leaving rookie Jeremy Hill to start against the visiting Jags. Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead could also see a few touches, but definitely expect Hill to see his most work this season.
