DFS NFL WR Coach: Week 4 Cover Image
Devonta Freeman Headshot

Devonta Freeman (illness) returned to practice Friday.

Freeman was never in danger of missing Week 4 for the Falcons as they face off in a big divisional game against Carolina. He'll continue to rotate with Tevin Coleman in the backfield, making them both RB2's at best in what should be a physical game.

Rashad Jennings Headshot

Rashad Jennings (thumb) took part in Friday's practice. He's questionable for Week 4.

This provides Jennings a glimmer of hope to play this Sunday as the veteran running back hasn't participated much this week. He's still listed as questionable, meaning there's a 50/50 chance he plays. Orleans Darkwa will draw the start if Jennings is inactive.

Greg Salas Headshot

Greg Salas (groin) will not play Week 4.

Buffalo will already be without Sammy Watkins in Week 4 and they'll be even thinner at WR with Salas forced to miss his second straight game. Buffalo's offense will go through LeSean McCoy, Charles Clay, and Robert Woods this week against New England.

Josh Gordon Headshot

Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson essentially ended the speculation about whether wideout Josh Gordon has a future with the team. "He doesn't."

Gordon entered rehab this week, continuing an already troubled off the field career. Talent has never been the issue with Gordon and at this point, the most important thing is getting his life together. His future as an NFL player is in serious doubt.

Sammy Watkins Headshot

Sammy Watkins will not play Week 4.

Watkins will miss his second straight game after having his surgically repaired foot stepped on during a walkthrough. If the Bills are to knock off the Patriots this week, it will be a heavy dose of LeSean McCoy and Charles Clay. There's no timetable for Watkins return.

Ronnie Stanley Headshot

Ronnie Stanley (foot) is not practicing Friday.

Stanley played last week with a foot injury, after being listed as questionable. The fact that he's missed three straight days of practice does not bode well for his availability this Sunday. He played every snap last week so he's shown he can play through it but so far, it doesn't look good for the offensive lineman.

Alex Lewis Headshot

Alex Lewis (concussion) is participating in Friday's walk-through.

Lewis left Baltimore's Week 3 game with a concussion and has been through the league's concussion protocol. Lewis has done well in pass protection but is not getting it done in run blocking. He is likely to be listed as questionable heading into the weekend.

Dez Bryant Headshot

Head coach Jason Garrett says WR Dez Bryant will not practice Friday.

Quite the saga out of Dallas with Bryant going AWOL this week after skipping out on an MRI, but he received good news from Dr. James Andrews. The stud wide receiver is expected to miss Week 4 but there's some hope that Bryant will return for Week 5.

Marvin Jones Headshot

Marvin Jones (hamstring) is practicing on Friday.

Reports are that Jones looked nearly 100% at practice and should be ready to roll this Sunday against the Bears. Assuming that, he's a solid WR1 against a weak Bears secondary.

Charles Johnson Headshot

Charles Johnson (strained quad) is not practicing Friday.

Johnson strained his quad yesterday during practice and has missed Friday's session. It could be precautionary but its possible this could keep him out of Week 4 action for the Panthers. He should be considered day-to-day until an official designation has been made.
