    Diontae Johnson WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
    Diontae Johnson (leg) has missed the last five days of practice.

    It's believed to be a calf issue, but we won't know unless the Steelers specify it since they're not required to produce injury reports. Johnson is a very popular year-two breakout candidate with a healthy Ben Roethlisberger back under center. The injury isn't believed to be serious, but any soft-tissue issue is worth monitoring. James Washington and rookie Chase Claypool are getting more reps in Johnson's absence.

    Kenyan Drake RB, Arizona Cardinals
    Kenyan Drake was spotted in a walking boot Monday.

    Coach Kliff Kingsbury called it precautionary but refused to answer any other questions on the topic of Drake's injury. For now, we have to just take what we're given and believe Kingsbury calling it a precaution. We'll continue to look for updates on Drake over the next couple days. If Drake were to ever miss time, Chase Edmonds would be a big beneficiary.

    Grant Delpit DB, Cleveland Browns
    Browns second-round S Grant Delpit was carted from Monday's practice with an Achilles' tendon injury.

    A tear has yet to be confirmed, but that will likely happen Monday evening. The Browns media had observed the No. 44 overall pick having a strong camp, so it would be a dispiriting blow. We will know Delpit's status soon enough.

    Tyrell Williams WR, Las Vegas Raiders
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Tyrell Williams has been diagnosed with a torn labrum but that the receiver will attempt to play through the injury.

    Good luck. Playing in the first season of a four-year, $44 million deal in 2019, Williams was highly ineffective as he battled through plantar fasciitis issues. A torn labrum is an order of magnitude greater than even that painful foot issue. It will be close to impossible for Williams to pull off. Going under the knife would likely cost Williams the entire season. Perhaps he can spend the first half of the year resting and rehabbing on injured reserve. The least likely outcome might be him suiting up in less than three weeks time. Williams wasn't really on draft boards to begin with, but he's all the way off them now. Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and impressive rookie Bryan Edwards all get a boost from this news. Even were Williams to be sidelined, the Raiders are going to have a difficult time apportioning all their targets.

    Sounds off.....

    Kenyan Drake RB, Arizona Cardinals
    Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury confirmed Kenyan Drake's walking boot was due to little more than "nicks and bruises."

    "It's just some normal nicks and bruises, normal camp stuff," was Kingsbury's exact quote. "It's just kind of precautionary with him, knowing what he'll be able to do." You don't get a walking boot for "nicks and bruises," but the issue is clearly not something that will affect Drake's Week 1 status. The back himself tweeted Monday that he was "good."

    A.J. Green WR, Cincinnati Bengals
    A.J. Green (hamstring) resumed running on Monday.

    Green, who had done nothing since August 17, ran on the rehab field. Now 32, Green has made a grand total of nine appearances since 2017. Despite his increasingly alarming recent injury history, Green is being drafted as a top-30 receiver. That's a leap of faith.

    Reports: Grant Delpit tears Achilles, ending his season
    Posted by Charean Williams on August 24, 2020, 9:53 PM EDT
    USA TODAY Sports

    The news didn’t appear positive when Grant Delpit was carted off the field Monday. It didn’t get any better when the Browns announced the safety was undergoing tests on his Achilles.

    Then, came word from Adam Schefter of ESPN that the Browns fear the second-round choice has torn his Achilles.

    An Achilles tendon tear is a simple diagnosis on the field, with an MRI confirming.

    Sure enough, Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports an MRI confirmed the injury.

    The Browns were planning for Delpit to start at free safety, and now, his rookie season is over before he plays a game.

    Delpit’s injury happened on a non-contact play before the start of team drills.

    Possible big deal for IDP'ers, particularly in Big Play Scoring leagues.

    thehuddle) Minnesota Vikings DE Danielle Hunter (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 24, and has missed the last eight practices.
  • IcemanIceman Posts: 6,564
    (FantasyPros) Eagles running back Boston Scott returned to practice on Monday after missing practice last week due to a lower-body injury, according to multiple reporters in attendance at Monday's practice. Analysis: Scott is the clear handcuff to Miles Sanders, who is reportedly week-to-week with a lower-body injury of his own. However, should Sanders go down with an injury, Doug Pederson and the Eagles are likely to implement a committee at the running back position with Scott, Corey Clement, and a yet-to-be-determined fourth running back.

    Deebo Samuel WR, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Deebo Samuel (foot) will not practice this week.

    Shanahan is "hopeful" that Samuel will be ready for Week 1 but is far from committing to that being the case. Samuel will need to return to the practice field before suiting up, so it's getting more and more likely that Samuel misses some game time. Jones fractures are particularly tough for a receiver who specializes in yards after the catch, making Samuel a risky mid-round selection. Helping Samuel's case, however, is the fact that the 49ers receivers continue to drop like flies. First-round rookie Brandon Aiyuk is not practicing due to a "mild" hamstring injury that also makes him week to week and Jalen Hurd is out for the year. These injuries make George Kittle a quality second-round selection in fantasy drafts. Kendrick Bourne would likely be the de-facto No. 1 receiver if Aiyuk and Samuel are out for Week 1.

    Nick Bosa DL, San Francisco 49ers
    Nick Bosa is "week-to-week" with a muscle strain.

    Bosa was thought to be suffering from general leg soreness, but an MRI revealed a muscle strain in his leg. It will "likely" keep him out for the remainder of the 49ers training camp and makes him questionable for Week 1. Bosa has dealt with injuries for years now, so San Francisco may be taking things cautiously after Bosa proved to be one of the NFL's top pass rushers as a rookie last season.

    Keke Coutee WR, Houston Texans
    Keke Coutee has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot.

    Per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, it's not "considered a long-term injury" and "rest should remedy the situation." A broken foot doesn't sound like something that is going to miraculously cure itself in days. It sounds like a weeks-long issue. Coutee has missed 17-of-32 games since entering the league as a 2018 fourth-rounder, so injuries have been his major bugaboo. Coutee is in serious danger of not making the Texans' 53-man roster.

    David Montgomery RB, Chicago Bears
    Updating a previous item, Bears head coach Matt Nagy said RB David Montgomery strained his groin at Wednesday's practice before being carted off the field.

    Tests on Montgomery's injury are ongoing, but it appears the second-year back avoided a catastrophic injury. Expect Chicago to sign a free agent running back if Montgomery misses extended time with the groin issue.

    David Mayo LB, New York Giants
    Giants LB David Mayo will undergo surgery after tearing the meniscus in his left knee.

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Mayo is expected to miss around three weeks of action since the surgery is not a full repair of the meniscus. He's very much in doubt for the Giants' opener against the Steelers. Mayo's loss is another blow for the Giants' defense, which lost rookie S Xavier McKinney to foot surgery. Mayo was second on the team in tackles last season. The Giants are now dangerously thin at linebacker, with 2019 fifth-round pick Ryan Connelly now potentially entering the starting lineup.

    Xavier McKinney S, New York Giants
    Giants rookie S Xavier McKinney will undergo surgery to repair a fractured left foot.

    The fracture is to McKinney's fifth metatarsal, frequently associated with a Jones fracture. This is not a season-ending injury, but McKinney will be sidelined for 2-3 months, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The first-year player was a second-round pick out of Alabama and was expected to play a starter's role for the Giants defense as a hybrid safety/linebacker.

    Andre Dillard T, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles LT Andre Dillard suffered a biceps injury during Thursday's practice.

    Dillard was already banged up with a non-related shoulder injury, but this biceps issue appears to be more serious. The Eagles are reportedly "hoping" Dillard didn't tear his biceps, an injury that would be measured in months. An MRI should reveal just how long Dillard will be out for, if he misses games at all. Philly has their season opener in just over two weeks.

    Darrell Henderson RB, Los Angeles Rams
    Rams coach Sean McVay said RB Darrell Henderson (hamstring) is expected to be available for Week 1.

    It's a slight change of tune for McVay, who said he "hoped" Henderson would be ready for the season opener just a few days ago. The second-year runner is still dealing with a "mild" soft tissue injury, potentially limiting him even if he is available for Week 1 versus Dallas. Henderson was drawing positive reviews as a change-of-pace punch behind Cam Akers prior to injury, but it's the rookie who would be in line for 20-plus touches in his debut if the former is at all limited to open the year.

    D'Andre Swift RB, Detroit Lions
    The Athletic's Chris Burke reports Lions RB D'Andre Swift (leg) remains absent from practice.

    Meanwhile second-year RB Ty Johnson has taken reps in drills behind Kerryon Johnson. It's possible the Lions are holding Swift back for precautionary reasons, but his extended absence at least needs to be monitored ahead of Week 1. The rookie was garnering rave reviews for his shiftiness in the passing game prior to injury.

    David Montgomery RB, Chicago Bears
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Bears RB David Montgomery is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

    This timeline butts him up against Chicago's season opener versus Detroit. Fantasy players should at the very least prepare for Montgomery to sit (or be limited) in Week 1, adding viable spot-start FLEX options in the later rounds to ensure a serviceable starting lineup out the gates. Assuming the Bears don't trade for a backup, Chicago will lean on Tarik Cohen, Cordarrelle Patterson, Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce -- 83 combined carries in 2019 -- in the interim.

    Joe Mixon RB, Cincinnati Bengals
    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Joe Mixon wasn't at practice Wednesday due to migraines.

    The elephant in the room remains Mixon's ongoing contract dispute, but Pelissero confirms the 24-year-old's absence from practice is due to injury and not because he's holding out. There's "optimism" Mixon will return to the field soon. Fantasy players should continue to approach Mixon's Average Draft Position in the first round with caution since a hold out has been a possibility since it was first reported in April.

    Andre Dillard T, Philadelphia Eagles
    Eagles placed LT Andre Dillard on injured reserve with a torn biceps, ending his season.

    Absolutely brutal for a team that had already lost RG Brandon Brooks (Achilles') for the season. The No. 22 overall pick of last year's draft, Dillard will go under the knife. Dillard was uneven as a rookie blindside protector but showed promise before adding over 20 pounds this offseason. He appeared poised to be an impressive mix of power and athleticism. The Eagles must now decide where to use recently re-signed veteran Jason Peters. Peters had been slated to take Brooks' spot, but left tackle has been his home for years. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo expects Peters to man left tackle. Matt Pryor appears to be the next man up at guard. It's far from an ideal situation for the Eagles. Old for a second-year pro, Dillard turns 25 in October.

    Big deal for the 9'ers running game....

    Kyle Juszczyk RB, San Francisco 49ers
    49ers FB Kyle Juszczyk is "week to week" with a hamstring strain.

    The league's best overall fullback is in danger of missing Week 1. Juszczyk is a critical real life cog for the defending NFC champion 49ers, but he does not catch enough passes to generate PPR value. His absence will be felt in the 49ers' run blocking if he's forced to miss regular season games.
