Jeremy Maclin Headshot

Maclin (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

One of four Ravens receivers listed on the team's injury report this week, Maclin was expected to return from a one-game absence, but after he tested his shoulder in warmups, the wideout wasn't deemed healthy enough to give it a go. With Maclin, Breshad Perriman (concussion) and Chris Matthews (thigh) all inactive, the Ravens will have a skeleton crew at wideout led by Mike Wallace, who is dealing with a back injury of his own that rendered him questionable heading into Sunday. The Ravens believe that Maclin will be able to return to the field for a quick turnaround Thursday against the Dolphins in Week 8.
11:42 am (EST)
Willie Snead Headshot

Snead (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 7 tilt against the Packers.

The designation comes as little surprise, as whispers of Snead's inability to suit up were heard earlier Sunday. The speedster's absence bumps up the prospects of Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn, Jr. and Brandon Coleman in what should be competitive matchup against the Packers despite the absence of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone).
11:42 am (EST)
Michael Floyd Headshot

Floyd (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Ravens.

The Vikings' decision comes on the heels of only one practice this week in which Floyd managed no more than individual drills. Floyd will join Stefon Diggs (groin) in street clothes, leaving Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright as the primary options at wide receiver.
11:41 am (EST)
DeVante Parker Headshot

DeVante Parker (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Parker's sprained ankle sidelined him throughout practices for the second straight week, sealing his fate for Sunday. Without their top downfield threat in the Week 6 win over the Falcons, the Dolphins leaned more heavily on short-yardage maven Jarvis Landry, whose 14 targets were his second-best total of the season. A similar development could materialize Sunday, as quarterback Jay Cutler has yet to show much of a connection with Kenny Stills or depth wideouts Leonte Carroo and Jakeem Grant.
11:40 am (EST)
Corey Linsley Headshot

Linsley (back) is active for Sunday's contest against New Orleans.

Linsley was added to the injury report Friday but it appears it was nothing serious. He's one of just two lineman who will play in each of the Packers' first seven games.
11:39 am (EST)
Tobias Harris Headshot

Harris collected 31 points (13-24 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 38 minutes in Saturday's 111-107 victory over the Knicks.

Harris doubled took 12 more shots than any other player on the roster Saturday night, proving the belief that with Marcus Morris now in Boston, Harris will have an expanded role in the front court for the Pistons. Through the first three games, Harris has averaged 24.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, numbers that are more than serviceable to fantasy owners.
11:38 am (EST)
Marqise Lee Headshot

Lee (knee) is listed active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

With Allen Robinson (knee) out for the season, Lee and Allen Hurns profile as the Jaguars' top wideout options. Assuming his knee doesn't flare up Sunday, Lee figures to see his share of looks against a leaky Colts pass defense, after hauling in five of his 10 targets for 83 yards in Week 6's loss to the Rams. Lee is averaging 48.5 receiving yards to date, but has yet to find the end zone.
11:38 am (EST)
Graham Gano Headshot

Gano (knee) is active for Sunday's game at Chicago, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

A late addition to the injury report this week, Gano will be able to perform all kicking duties in spite of a right knee concern. He's a good bet to produce, too, against the Bears, who have conceded at least 12 points to kickers in three of six games this year.
11:38 am (EST)
Lane Taylor Headshot

Taylor (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Lane was one of three Packers lineman to have played in every game this season. Look for Justin McCray to slide into the starting lineup while Lane is out.
11:36 am (EST)
Kelvin Benjamin Headshot

Benjamin (knee) is listed as active Sunday at Chicago, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Benjamin suffered a scare with his left knee in the aftermath of the Panthers' Week 6 loss to the Eagles, forcing a doctor's visit and no activity either Wednesday or Thursday. After turning in a full session Friday, head coach Ron Rivera said Benjamin would have been "probable" under previous NFL guidelines. That said, Benjamin received a questionable designation, likely as a fail-safe in case he suffered a setback in the meantime. Having received the all-clear from the training staff, he'll face a Bears defense that has allowed six touchdowns but just 11.7 YPC to wideouts in 2017.
