4 p.m. ET Games
Andy Isabella, WR, ARI: Back — out
Impact: Greg Dort, a Week 1 surprise, gets another chance to audition for more goals.
Rondell Moore, WR, ARI: hamstrings- out
Influence: The Marquis Brown should get some extra attention from Kyler Murray.
Damien Williams, RB, ATL: ribs- OUT/IR
Impact: Rookie Tyler Algier, inactive in Week 1, may get a chance to step up.
T Higgins, WR, CIN: Shake – Active
Effect: He was dropped from the league’s concussion protocol before Sunday’s game and will play.
Dak Prescott, QB, DAL: thumb — out
Impact: To call Cooper Rush a downgrade to quarterback is a huge understatement.
Michael Gallup, WR, DAL: Knee — out
Impact: Noah Brown would be a risky flex play considering the QB position.
KJ Hamler, Western Railway, Den: Knee — out
Impact: Tyree Cleveland did little in a sub role for Hamler in Week 1.
Van Jefferson, WR, LAR: Knee — out
Impact: Alan Robinson II and Ben Skoronek continue to get small price bumps.
Brandon Bolden, RB, LV: hamstrings- suspicious
Impact: Amir Abdullah and Zameer White could be more involved at third down.
George Kittel, TE, SF: waist – Inactive
Impact: This decision seemed inevitable, so we certainly hope you have another option available to you. Maybe Tyler Croft?
JJ Watt, DE, ARI: calf — suspicious
Jalen Thompson, S, ARI: toe — suspicious
Jayron Kearse, S, DAL: Knee — out
DeShawn Williams, DE, Dane: Back — Active

Alan Lazard, WR, UK: ankle — suspicious
Impact: It’s not a clear call and he’s currently expected to play, but starting someone else this week might serve you best.
1pm ET Games
JK Dobbins, RB, Child: Knee — Inactive
Impact: The Ravens have no reason to risk a potential long-term injury here. Kenyan Drake Benefits.
Shi Smith, WR, CAR: waist – Active
Impact: Terrace Marshall Jr. is ready to challenge him to the WR3 Snaps. Laviska Shenault Jr. is a healthy idle again.
D’Andre Swift, RB, DET: ankle — Active
Effect: If a problem occurs during the game, Jamal Williams will certainly get additional photos.
Michael Pittman Jr., WR, IND: quad- out
Impact: Expect to get a lot more play time from Paris Campbell.
Alec Pierce, WR, IND: Shake – out
Impact: Kylen Granson was heavily targeted last week and could look extravagant again.
Cedric Wilson Jr., WR, MIA: toe — Active
Effect: He got some practice at the end of the week, so there’s optimism that he can play the full 60 minutes.
Pierre Strong Jr., RB, NE: shoulder — Active
Impact: Strong on third down could be a factor, given that Ty Montgomery is now on IR.
Jameis Winston, QB, No: Back — Active
Impact: Looking at all the injuries in this backfield, even if he’s going to start, we’ll defer Winston to Week 2.
Alvin Kamara, RB, NO: ribs- Inactive
Effect: Staying away from exercise was not a good sign. Hopefully, he will be good to go in week 3.
Mark Ingram II, RB, No: ankle — Active
Impact: At least Ingram saw some reps this week. He should be ready to step in Kamra’s place.
Dwayne Washington, RB, NO: hamstrings- Active
Impact: She may have to share any leftover touches with Tony Jones Jr.
Tre’Kwan Smith, WR, no: shoulder — Inactive
Impact: Rookie Chris Olev has already surpassed him on the WR depth chart.
Vandell Robinson, WR, NYG: Knee — out
Impact: With a rookie injury done, Richie James could again join forces with Kenny Golladay and Sterling Shepard in some 3-WR sets.
Kadarius Tony, WR, NYG: hamstrings- Active
Effect: Luckily, he’s actually able to help get things done.
Zach Wilson, QB, NYJ: Knee — out

CJ Uzoma, TE, NYJ: hamstrings- Inactive
Impact: Tyler Conklin enters the streaming mix at TE position.
Leonard Fournett, RB, TB: hamstrings- Active
The Effect: After being able to practice twice a week as of late, we’re not surprised to see Fournet follow suit.
Chris Godwin, WR, TB: hamstrings- out
Impact: Godwin could be out for several weeks with this injury.
Julio Jones, WR, TB: Knee — Inactive
Impact: Missed two exercises this week and was clearly not ready for it.
Mike Evans, WR, TB: calf — Active
Impact: Injury on Wednesday, but was able to practice on Friday. With Jones and Godwin out, he would be heavily relied upon.
Breshad Perriman, WR, TB: Knee — Active
Impact: As with all these other WR injuries, that one week could be a 2 factor.
Russell Gage, WR, TB: hamstrings- Active
Influence: Like Perriman, anyone who might fit the Buccaneers today has a chance to shine.
