There are some key fantasy injuries as we ready for kickoff of week 3 in the NFL. Here’s the latest from around the league as active/inactives are announced.
Marshawn Lynch-Seattle Seahawks-RB: Lynch looks to be all systems go for Monday Night’s game against Green Bay.
Steven Jackson- St. Louis Rams-RB: Jackson is active for te Rams’ meeting with the Bears today. He may still get fewer carries, but Jackson can be started against Chicago.
Marques Colston-New Orleans Saints-WR: Colston is active and will play against the visiting Chiefs.
Torrey Smith-Baltimore Ravens-WR: It may be too early to put him in the “who’s in” category but it sounds like Smith wants to play despite the sudden and tragic death of his brother early this morning. He has left the team hotel to be with his family but he still assures Coach John Harbaugh he wants to play tonight. Just be sure you have a backup plan if you have Smith starting.
Brandon Lloyd-New England Patriots-WR: Lloyd is still listed as questionable with a thigh injury but appears ready to play tonight in Baltimore. If you’re starting Lloyd just be sure to have another WR from tonight or tomorrow you can slip in in case of a gametime surprise.
Michael Turner-Atlanta Falcons-RB: Despite his recent DUI, Turner will play Sunday in SD.
Sebastian Janikowski-Oakland Raiders-K: Janikowski will start for Oakland.
Austin Collie-Indianapolis Colts-WR: Collie is set to play against Jacksonville.
Kellen Winslow-New England Patriots-TE: Winslow will be active for Sunday Night Football after being picked up by the Pats this week.
Mikel Leshoure-Detroit Lions-RB: Leshoure will play his first NFL game and get the start for Detroit against Tennessee. He makes a great high-upside back and should be in store for a nice day against the Titans
Pierre Garcon-Washington Redskins-WR: Garcon was questionable last week and missed the game and entered today as doubtful. His status going forward is up-in-the-air so check back leading up to the Skins game against the Bucs.
Fred Jackson-Buffalo Bills-RB: Jackson could be back as early as next week, but won’t suit up today.
Knowshon Moreno-Denver Broncos-RB: Moreno is a healthy inactive today.
Todd Heap-Arizona Cardinals-TE: Heap is out with a knee injury.
