After a four-game absence because of a sprained MCL, Steelers inside linebacker Ryan Shazier could be set to return to the lineup Sunday vs. Indianapolis.

The rookie linebacker did well in his first three NFL games, recording 20 tackles and seemingly making plays with ease. The Steelers' defense could use his youth and will welcome him back on Sunday against the Colts if he is cleared to play. If he stays healthy, he could be a very solid source of tackles in IDP leagues.

Cardinals Head Coach Bruce Arians said it's doubtful TE Troy Niklas (ankle) will play Sunday.

Niklas has caught just one pass this season and whether or not he has no effect in terms of fantasy football.

QB Carson Palmer is getting "real close" to 100% healthy. He threw Tuesday on a off-day.

Palmer has turned in back to back solid performances since returning from his shoulder injury having thrown two touchdowns in each of the past two games and is gaining momentum as a solid QB1 in fantasy formats.

The Patriots are expected to sign Alan Branch.

Branch entered the league back in 2007 and has played with three organizations in that span with his best season coming in 2011 for the Seahawks when he registered 34 tackles with three sacks. With Chandler Jones expected to miss the next month Branch will provide some veteran depth along the defensive line.

he Panthers announced they've released longtime defensive back Charles Godfrey.

Godfrey has registered 19 tackles this season for the Panthers and has spent all of his seven year career with Carolina. He will likely get pickled up by a team in need of a veteran defensive back.

Chandler Jones missed practice Tuesday due to a hip injury, according to league source, it is expected to sideline him about a month.

This is tough news for a Patriots defense that has already lost Jerod Mayo for the season. Jones is far and away their best edge rusher and will be missed. His absence could open up some playing time for rookie first rounder Dominique Easley and sixth rounder Zach Moore.

Colts released QB Dominique Davis and WR Chandler Jones from the practice squad.

Teams will often sign and cut players from their practice squads pending on team needs. Neither of these players had any fantasy relevance and can continue being ignored.

Update: Colts signed RB Jeff Demps.

Trent Richardson is dealing with a hamstring injury which likely prompted the Colts to sign some additional running back depth. Demps is a home run threat given his Olympic caliber speed but likely won't see much offensive involvement and could be used on kick and punt returns.
