J. Ward - DL
Ward was carted off the field during Sunday's game against the Bills with an apparent ankle injury and is questionable to return, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
The extent of Ward's ankle issue is still unknown, but it's unlikely Ward will return following the need of a medical cart. More details regarding the severity of Ward's injury should emerge as the game progresses.

D. Henry - RB
Henry rushed for 33 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Chargers. He also added two receptions for 32 yards.
Henry struggled to run efficiently yet again -- he averaged only 2.8 yards per carry -- but did manage to find the end zone for the first time this season. He also offered a slight boost in the passing game, as he caught multiple passes for just the second time in seven games. While volume between the two backs remains similar, Dion Lewis out-gained Henry by 90 yards on Sunday. Overall, the touchdown helped Henry's bottom line, yet he remains one of the biggest busts this season and is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry. Given his inefficiency, he could also be in danger of losing volume to Lewis.

McCoy is being evaluated for a head injury after leaving Sunday's game against the Colts, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
At first glance it looked like the running back's exit was caused by an ankle or lower-leg injury, but now it looks like he's being checked out for a possible concussion. Next up for the team's carries in his absence are Chris Ivory and Marcus Murphy.

McCoy headed to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Colts after suffering what could be a lower right leg injury, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Per the report, McCoy had a "slight hitch in his step" as he headed to the locker room. Next up for the team's carries while he's sidelined is Chris Ivory.

K. Allen - WR
Allen hauled in all five of his targets, amassing 72 receiving yards during Sunday's 20-19 win against Tennessee.
With another respectable output Sunday against the Titans, Allen now has five-plus receptions in three of his past four games, while boasting a remarkable 80 percent catch rate during that span (compared to 65.4 percent catch rate through Week 3). Those with Allen in their lineup rejoice at his consistent volume (at least five targets in every game), and ability to create "splash" plays time and time again, with a reception of 16-plus yards in all seven games this year. Following a bye, Week 9 brings a matchup against a Seattle secondary that has held up extraordinarily well despite considerable turnover in the secondary (no remaining active starters from Week 1 of 2017), ranking among the NFL's top five pass defenses entering Week 7 with 206 yards allowed per game.

M. Mariota - QB
Mariota completed 24 of 32 passes for 237 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Chargers. He also added seven carries for 38 yards.
Mariota surpassed 150 passing yards for only the second time this season thanks to a 75 percent completion rate. However, his downfield shots remain limited, completing only two passes of more than 20 yards in the performance. Overall, Mariota has just three touchdowns this season, and is still likely hampered by the elbow injury he suffered in Week 1. Nevertheless this was an encouraging performance, even if it doesn't push Mariota into top-12 consideration at the position.
Added 1:11 pm (EST)
A. Peterson - RB
The Redskins are expected to make Peterson (ankle/shoulder) active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.
Though listed as questionable with a pair of injuries, Peterson was never believed to be in any serious danger of missing Sunday's contest after relaying Friday that he felt healthier than he did a week ago. His availability won't be officially confirmed until approximately 90 minutes before the 4:25 p.m. EDT kickoff, but fantasy owners who were intending on using Peterson this week can probably go through with those plans.
Added 1:10 pm (EST)
D. Inman - WR
Inman will start at wide receiver on Sunday against Buffalo, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletinr reports.
He's a surprise starter since he signed just this week, so he may not be on the field for too many plays even with injuries to Marcus Johnson and Ryan Grant.
