GM Alex Anthopoulos says Edwin Encarnacion (quad) should return by the end of next week.
The sad thing is that Anthopoulos said this exact same thing last week. Until you hear reports that Encarnacion is doing fielding drills and running the bases at full speed, you can't expect him to begin a legitimate rehab assignment anytime soon. When he does start to play in minor league games, then you can let your enthusiasm go nuts. Until then, keep fishing on your waiver wire looking for power help.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tevin Coleman (ribs) will play Week 5 against Washington.
Coleman seems to have moved past his rib injury, but while he is expected to play Sunday, he will obviously play a limited role behind Devonta Freeman. The Falcons offense is firing on all cylinders right now and they don't need/want to upset the balance of things while they are on this run. Expect Coleman to work as a part-time change-of-pace back this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
Jadeveon Clowney has a walking boot on his right foot.
Clowney limped off the field late in the game while the Colts were driving down for their final touchdown of the night. He remained on the sidelines with what the Texans are saying is an ankle issue. The oft-injured Clowney will stay in the boot as a precaution and he will be re-evaluated after a couple of days. Analysis: Howard Bender
