Date Player
10/24/2014 Bryan Walters, WR
Walters will miss Sunday's game in Carolina because of a concussion.

Analysis: The Seattle punt returner suffered his injury during practice this week and was not cleared. Wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Paul Richardson will handle the duties on kick and punt returns with Walters sidelined.
10/24/2014 Jahleel Addae, S
Coach Mike McCoy says the San Diego Chargers followed proper medical procedure after Addae had two scary reactions following hits in Thursday night's loss at Denver.

Analysis: Addae immediately fell to the ground after a hit on the first play of the game. Late in the third quarter, the safety convulsed while remaining on his feet after a hit. He led with his left shoulder both times. Addae said after the game he passed the NFL's concussion test.
10/24/2014 Brian Quick, WR
The NFL has fined Quick $8,268 for unnecessary roughness in last Sunday's win over Seattle.

Analysis: The St. Louis wide receiver was penalized at the end of the first quarter after Rams running back Tre Mason lost 2 yards. His fine was announced by the league on Friday.
10/24/2014 Fozzy Whittaker, RB
Running backs DeAngelo Williams and Whittaker, wide receiver Philly Brown, guards Amini Silatolu and Trai Turner, linebacker Chase Blackburn and cornerback Bene Benwikere are all listed as out for Sunday's game against Seattle.

Analysis: Whittaker has very little fantasy value right now.
10/24/2014 Trumaine Johnson, CB
The St. Louis Rams are banged-up in the secondary this week, with Janoris Jenkins and Johnson both questionable for Kansas City, and backup Brandon McGee ruled out with a foot injury.

Analysis: Johnson has yet to make his season debut from a knee injury, but said Friday he was ready.
10/24/2014 Janoris Jenkins, CB
The St. Louis Rams are banged-up in the secondary this week, with Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson both questionable for Kansas City, and backup Brandon McGee ruled out with a foot injury.

Analysis: Jenkins injured his knee last week and has not practiced this week.
10/24/2014 Josh Robinson, CB
Robinson is questionable for Sunday's game due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Robinson did not practice on Friday, an ominous sign for his chances to play.
10/24/2014 John Sullivan, C
Sullivan is listed as probable for the game at Tampa Bay on Sunday after suffering a concussion last week.

Analysis: Sullivan was a full participant in practice on Friday. He left the loss at Buffalo last week with a concussion, which he says is at least the fifth of his career. He says he took a knee to the helmet, but thought he felt good enough to return to the game before being overruled by the team's medical staff.
10/24/2014 Juwan Thompson, RB
Thompson scored on two short TD runs Thursday.

Analysis: Despite reaching the end zone, Thompson is not a serious fantasy option at the moment.
10/24/2014 Antonio Gates, TE
Gates caught five passes for 54 yards and two TDs on Thursday.

Analysis: Gates, who became the Chargers' career leader in yards receiving with 9,610, has six TDs in four games.
10/24/2014 Philip Rivers, QB
Rivers finished 30 of 41 for 252 yards with three TDs and two interceptions Thursday.

Analysis: Rivers has thrown 20 TDs this season, but three of his five picks have come in the last two games.
10/24/2014 Demaryius Thomas, WR
Thomas had eight catches for 105 yards Thursday.

Analysis: Though Thomas failed to score for the first time in four games, he's totaled 34 receptions and 626 yards over that span.
10/24/2014 Ronnie Hillman, RB
Hillman 20 times for 109 yards Thursday.

Analysis: Hillman has rushed for 347 yards and averaged 4.8 per carry during the last four games. It's very much possible he'll remain the Broncos featured back when or if Montee Ball returns from injury.
10/24/2014 Peyton Manning, QB
On Thursday, Manning finished 25 of 35 for 286 yards with three TDs and no interceptions or sacks four nights after breaking Brett Favre's career touchdown mark.

Analysis: Manning broke another of Favre's records Thursday, albeit a much more obscure one: he now has 16 seasons with 20 or more touchdown passes, one more than Favre. And he's approaching another of Favre's marks: with his 157th career multiple TD game, Manning is two shy of Favre's mark in that category.
10/24/2014 Emmanuel Sanders, WR
Sanders caught three TDs and all nine passes Payton Manning threw his way and gained 120 yards Thursday night.

Analysis: After going without a TD in the first five games of the season, Sanders has four in two weeks.
10/23/2014 Colt McCoy, QB
McCoy remains on pace to start for the Washington Redskins on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys, although Jay Gruden says he won't make a decision on Robert Griffin III until shortly before kickoff.

Analysis: Gruden tried to be a bit strategic Thursday, declining to rule out whether Griffin will face a Cowboys team, that in theory, will have to prepare for two very different quarterbacks. But the coach continued to give every indication that McCoy will make a first NFL start since 2011.
10/23/2014 Luke Kuechly, LB
Kuechly says he's not angry that he was wrongly ejected in the second half of Sunday's 38-17 loss to Green Bay.

Analysis: Kuechly said Thursday he's happy he wasn't fined. When asked if he's mad, Kuechly said, "I don't think mad is the right word. I just want to play football and it's hard to watch from the locker room. I'm like, 'Ugh, I want to get out there and play.' But stuff happens."
10/23/2014 Taylor Lewan, T
A lawyer for Tennessee Titans rookie Taylor Lewan says he expects to reach a deal with prosecutors that would allow his client to avoid trial in a Michigan assault case. During a hearing Thursday in Ann Arbor, both sides asked a judge to cancel next week's trial. Defense attorney John Shea says the request was made "in anticipation of a resolution of the case to be placed on the record next Thursday."

Analysis: Lewan is a former Michigan offensive tackle and the Titans' first-round draft pick in 2014. He's accused of punching an Ohio State fan after the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines last season. Lewan says he was breaking up a dispute and wasn't involved in a fight. He's charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery.
10/23/2014 Zach Mettenberger, QB
The Tennessee Titans will start Mettenberger at quarterback against the Houston Texans on Sunday, switching away from Jake Locker who has missed three of the past four games with injuries.

Analysis: Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Thursday that the decision to go with Mettenberger was made Tuesday and feels this is an opportunity to see what the sixth-round draft pick out of LSU can do. The Titans had stuck with Locker, the eighth pick overall in 2011, since hiring Whisenhunt in January. But Locker has missed 17 of a possible 39 starts and finished only three games this season because of injuries.
10/23/2014 LaAdrian Waddle, T
Waddle kept playing after banging his head on the ground late in last week's victory over the New Orleans Saints, even though the team knew a concussion was possible.

Analysis: Waddle was knocked down while blocking during an extra-point attempt after Corey Fuller had scored in the 24-23 comeback win over the Saints. He was then on the field at right tackle when quarterback Matthew Stafford took a knee to end the game on the next possession. Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Thursday the team knew when the concussion happened, but then said the team's doctors weren't sure right away.
