Fantasy Football Week 4 Injury Updates: Arian Foster, Steven Jackson, Dez Bryant, Frank Gore, and more

Heading into week 4, my Green and Gold boys are rockin’ it at 3-0 (and Drew Lange’s not diggin’ it). My fantasy team? Yeah, let’s not talk about it.

On to your Week 4 injury update!

AFC North

The Cleveland Browns expect to see running back Peyton Hillis back on the field in week 4 after recovering from his illness that kept him out of the game last week. However, the Browns have Mohamed Massaquoi, wide receiver, listed as questionable for the game due to an ankle injury. Both Hillis and Massaquoi are listed to start against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in the depth chart.

Mike Wallace, wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, was limited at practice on Wednesday due to an injury in his ribs. However, he is listed as probable on the Steelers injury report and is listed to start in the depth chart.

The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, Lee Evans, is out for week 4 due to a lingering ankle injury.

The Houston Texans’ wide receiver Andre Johnson was back at practice on Thursday after suffering from a knee injury. He is listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Arian Foster, is also listed as probable for the game after having issues with a reoccurring hamstring injury.

For those of you that have Kerry Collins as your quarterback (soooo no one), he’s not going to start for the Colts. Instead, expect Curtis Painter to lead the team against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.

AFC East

Steve Johnson, wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills, practiced in full on Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Miami Dolphins rookie running back, Daniel Thomas, is questionable for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. The hamstring injury will most likely keep Thomas off of the field in week 4.

Tight end for the New England Patriots, Aaron Hernandez, will remain out for this week’s game against the Oakland Raiders.

New York Jets’ wide receivers Plaxico Burress and Santonio Holmes, who are listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, are listed as starting in the depth chart.

AFC West

Tight end for the San Diego Chargers, Antonio Gates, is not expected to play against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday because of a lingering foot injury.

Knowshon Moreno, running back for the Denver Broncos, is listed as probable and will need some time to get with the game after taking two weeks off.

After dealing with a sports hernia, Louis Murphy, will be out of week 4. However, Jacoby Ford, receiver is expected to play for the first time since week 1.

NFC North

Matt Spaeth, tight end for the Chicago Bears, did not practice on Wednesday. Good news for Bears fans and Marion Barber owners: he’s expected to return to the field for the Bears’ week 4 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Detroit Lions’ receiver, Calvin Johnson, returned to practice and is listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Green Bay Packers’ running back, Ryan Grant, suffered a bruised kidney and is not expected to play in week 4.

NFC South

Wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, Roddy White, is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game after suffering from a thigh injury. It will most likely be a game time decision and the Falcons have a later game, leaving fantasy owners at a disadvantage. Running back Jason Snelling was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks due to a concussion.

Marques Colston, wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints, was cleared to play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars after suffering from a collarbone injury.

NFC East

Missing practices again, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Dez Bryant, is still dealing with his bruised thigh. He is currently listed as questionable, along with quarterback Tony Romo. Running back Felix Jones is listed as probable. Miles Austin will not play until after Cowboys’ bye week.

New York Giants wide receiver, Hakeem Nicks, did not practice on Thursday after having issues with his knee. However, Nicks reassures that the knee swelling was expected, and he will play on Sunday.

So many of you are probably on edge trying to figure out whether or not Michael Vick will make an appearance on the field or not. Despite an injured hand, Vick is listed as probable and plans on at least attempting to play. You make the call as to whether or not he’s your best choice. Another Philadelphia Eagle, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, is listed as probable for Sunday’s game after suffering from a hamsting injury.

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals running back, Beanie Wells, is listed as questionable. However, coach Ken Whisenhunt seemed optimistic that Wells would play.

Frank Gore, running back for the San Fransisco 49ers, will most likely play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, he will be limited on the workload he gets for the day.

St. Louis Rams running back, Steven Jackson, has practiced (limited) all week in hopes of playing against the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Wide receiver Danny Amendola is listed questionable for Sunday’s game and did not practice on Friday. Because the Rams have a bye in week 5, there’s a good chance they leave him out of Sunday’s game.

There’s your injury update for week 4! Good luck and go kick some butt!

  65. Another thing I have noticed is that often for many people, low credit score is the results of circumstances beyond their control. One example is they may be actually saddled having an illness and as a consequence they have more bills for collections. It might be due to a occupation loss or maybe the inability to go to work. Sometimes divorce can really send the budget in a downward direction. Many thanks for sharing your ideas on this blog site.

Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

  69. Thanks for your ideas. One thing I have noticed is always that banks and financial institutions know the dimensions and spending practices of consumers and also understand that most people max out their cards around the holiday seasons. They sensibly take advantage of this fact and commence flooding ones inbox in addition to snail-mail box having hundreds of Zero APR card offers shortly after the holiday season finishes. Knowing that should you be like 98% of American general public, you’ll leap at the one opportunity to consolidate financial debt and shift balances for 0 annual percentage rates credit cards.

  70. Currently it appears like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  71. Wow, this post is pleasant, my sister is analyzing such things, thus I am going to let know her.

  73. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  81. Some people criticize this as a flawless design for i Phone and prefer their old i Phone. Additionally, the sensor is about 170 microns thin with 500 ppi resolution and used to unlock the i Phone 5S or make purchases.

A few things i would like to bring about is that personal computer memory needs to be purchased if the computer still cannot cope with anything you do by using it. One can add two RAM memory boards having 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should check the car maker’s documentation for one’s PC to ensure what type of storage is essential.
