Malcom Brown Headshot

Brown injured his ankle Sunday against the Falcons and is questionable to return.

Brown exited the game in the third quarter with one tackle to his name. Both Alan Branch and Lawrence Guy figure to see added snaps in his absence.

Maxime Lagace Headshot

Lagace was summoned from AHL Chicago on Sunday.

With Malcolm Subban (lower body) going on the injured reserve, Vegas will call upon Lagace to serve as the backup to Oscar Dansk for the time being. After Lagace appeared in 32 games last season for AHL Texas posting a 3.56 GAA and .886 save percentage, the 24-year-old hasn't fared much better this season mustering a .870 save percentage during three games in the minors. Lagace will likely remain with the team until Subban or Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) return to the action.

Brett Hundley Headshot

Hundley completed 12 of 25 passes for 87 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Saints. He also rushed three times for 44 yards and a touchdown and fumbled once.

Hundley capped off an eight-play, 75-yard drive in the second quarter with a 14-yard scoring scamper, a play that gave the Packers a temporary 13-7 lead and served as the highlight of his afternoon. The second-year signal caller couldn't generate much otherwise, struggling to establish any rhythm in the passing game while averaging a meager 3.48 yards per attempt. Hundley's one interception also served to seal the Packers' fate on the afternoon, as it came with 4:28 remaining in the fourth quarter and Green Bay still within reach of making a comeback from their nine-point deficit. While he certainly proved capable of making plays with his legs, Hundley will need to show much better rapport with his pass catchers, who all saw downturns in production of varying degrees due to his struggles. Luckily for Hundley, he'll have the Week 8 bye to work on righting the ship before facing the Lions in a Week 9 divisional showdown on Monday Night Football.

Michael McCarron Headshot

McCarron was called up to the NHL on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

McCarron appeared in 32 games last season with Montreal including one playoff game, but only managed five points in the stretch. While it's unsure how long the Michigan native will remain in the NHL, with Jeremiah Addison (shoulder) and Ales Hemsky (upper body) on the injured reserve McCarron should receive some ice time until they return.
10:19 pm (EST)
Michael Thomas Headshot

Thomas brought in seven of 11 targets for 82 yards in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Packers.

Thomas drew even with Ted Ginn, Jr. for the team lead in receptions on the afternoon while also pacing the club in targets. The second-year wideout continues to garner plenty of attention from quarterback Drew Brees, as he's seen 11 targets in two of the past three games. While he's yet to log a 100-yard effort, the 24-year-old is clearly the Saints' No. 1 receiver and has the frame to serve as a consistent red-zone threat. He'll look to put together another strong performance when the Saints take on the Bears in a Week 8 home tilt.
10:13 pm (EST)
Jonnu Smith Headshot

Smith caught two of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 12-9 overtime win at Cleveland.

Smith wasn't a major contributor here, but he could be in for an expanded role in the coming weeks. Top tight end Delanie Walker exited this one with a sprained ankle and Smith would inherit a lot of extra snaps should Walker sit. Tennessee's on bye next week, but Smith would be a solid streamer afterwards if Walker still isn't healthy.
10:13 pm (EST)
Tyler Kroft Headshot

Kroft secured all four of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 29-14 loss to the Steelers.

Operating as the starter in place of the injured Tyler Eifert (back), Kroft wasn't targeted often down the field. However, he was a reliable short-range outlet, which proved handy on a day QB Andy Dalton often had little time to throw. The 2015 third-rounder has now seen at least four targets per week in his new role while averaging 4.3 receptions and 39.3 yards in those games. Together with the fact he's scored three times in that same span, Kroft is looking to be a relatively high-floor fantasy option, albeit one without a ton of upside.
10:09 pm (EST)
Ted Ginn Headshot

Ginn brought in all seven of his targets for 141 yards and logged one punt return for seven yards in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Packers.

With Willie Snead (hamstring) sitting, Ginn played the role of downfield threat he's proven highly capable of in the past, establishing season bests in receptions and receiving yards in the process. The 32-year-old also notched a season-long 47-yard catch and has gotten his Saints tenure off to a strong start overall, producing a 22-353-2 line over his first six contests. He could be in for another expanded role in Week 8 versus the Bears if Snead is unable to suit up.
10:08 pm (EST)
Nikita Scherbak Headshot

Scherbak was recalled from AHL Laval on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

After streaking out of the AHL gates notching nine points in his first six games, it certainly didn't take long for the 21-year-old to get called up to the show. Scherbak has a wicked wrist shot and lots of offensive potential, but it's unlikely he receives more than a bottom-six role from Montreal.
10:06 pm (EST)
Alvin Kamara Headshot

Kamara rushed nine times for 57 yards and secured five of seven targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Packers.

The rookie was once again effective in a complementary role, and he's now logged 19 carries for 132 yards along with eight receptions for 62 yards over the last two games. That boost in production has coincided with Adrian Peterson's exit from New Orleans, as the presence of one less mouth to feed in the backfield appears to have freed up head coach Sean Payton to give Kamara a more consistent workload. The 22-year-old's game-breaking speed and role in a prolific offense afford him an abundance of fantasy upside, potential that he'll look to deliver on in a Week 8 home matchup against the Bears.
