Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (wrist-questionable) practiced in full again and should be available in Los Angeles, but behind Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael in their RBBC.
Washington Redskins RB Matt Jones (shoulder) is practicing in full and is set to start vs. Dallas.

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (shoulder) is practicing in full and will play vs. Baltimore.
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hip-questionable) remained limited in practice but is on track to play Sunday vs. Indianapolis in a favorable matchup. It’s unclear, however, how many snaps he can handle.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee-questionable) was upgraded from no to full practice and is back on track to play against Denver and join his fellow wideouts in a tough matchup vs. the Broncos’ cornerbacks.
Los Angeles Rams WR Pharoh Cooper (shoulder-doubtful) got in only limited practice and won’t play vs. Seattle.
Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring-questionable) remained limited in practice. They remain optimistic he can play in New England after missing Week One.
Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson (quadriceps) went full again and will play and start Sunday vs. Green Bay.
New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (shoulder-questionable) was listed as full and should play against Miami.
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder-questionable) was downgraded to limited from full but is still expected to return to action opposite WR Antonio Brown vs. Cincinnati.
Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring-out) didn’t practice for a second straight day and won’t play in Detroit.
Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles’-questionable) is practicing in full but if active shouldn’t see a big role vs. Dallas.
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle-out) didn’t practice again and will miss another game. TE C.J. Uzomah is expected to be his primary fill-in again.
Jacksonville Jaguars TE Julius Thomas (ankle) went full for a third day and is fine for San Diego.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (knee) practiced in full again and will play and start vs. Green Bay.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz (rib) isn’t practicing and is set to miss Chicago. TE Brent Celek will see a bigger role in the passing game.
Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) went full again and will play in Los Angeles, but it’s uncertain how many snaps he will get again.
Arizona Cardinals RG Evan Mathis (foot-questionable) got in a second limited practice and has a chance to play. If he can’t go, however, it would hurt their run blocking most vs. Tampa Bay.
Houston Texans LT Duane Brown (knee-out) isn’t practicing and will miss Kansas City, too. His absence hurts most against the Chiefs’ pass rush.
Miami Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip-out) didn’t practice again and is set to miss another game, hurting their overall blocking for New England.
Minnesota Vikings LT Matt Kalil (hip-questionable) was upgraded to only limited practice in advance of Green Bay. His absence would be a big blow to their pass protection in a tough matchup.
New England Patriots LT Nate Solder (hamstring-questionable) was limited for a third day. He is trending toward playing vs. Miami to help their overall blocking.
New Orleans Saints LT Terron Armstead (quadriceps-questionable) remained limited but should be in there blocking well for QB Drew Brees against the Giants.
Oakland Raiders C Rodney Hudson (knee-questionable) and RG Gabe Jackson (knee-questionable) were each upgraded to full from limited. RT Menelik Watson (groin-doubtful) didn’t practice for a third day in advance of Atlanta. The Raiders still should have enough starting line play to be very comfortable against the Falcons.
Seattle Seahawks LG Germain Ifedi (ankle-out) didn’t practice again and will also miss Los Angeles, hurting their run blocking again.
Washington Redskins LT Trent Williams (glute-questionable) was limited for a second day in advance of Dallas. They think he’ll be in there protecting QB Kirk Cousins as usual.
Cincinnati Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap (shoulder/toe) was upgraded to full and will play in Pittsburgh. FANTASY SPIN: Even with him on the edge as usual it will be hard to slow down the Steelers’ passing game.
Denver Broncos DE Derek Wolfe (neck-questionable) was limited but is expected to play vs. Indianapolis. FANTASY SPIN: The Broncos’ front seven is a tough draw for the Colts’ offensive line, and it will especially hurt RB Frank Gore.
Detroit Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder-questionable) was upgraded to full from limited. They expect him to go vs. Tennessee. FANTASY SPIN: It’s a tougher matchup for the Titans’ pass protection than for its run blocking.
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (back) was listed as limited after going full early in the week but will play vs. Kansas City. FANTASY SPIN: This remains a very tough matchup up front for the Chiefs’ pass protection and run blocking.
Indianapolis Colts DE Henry Anderson (knee-out) was upgraded to full but still won’t play against Denver. FANTASY SPIN: This is an awesome matchup for Broncos RB C.J. Anderson.
Los Angeles Rams DT Michael Brockers (thigh-questionable) went full and should play vs. Seattle. FANTASY SPIN: This is a tough overall matchup for the Seahawks’ shaky, banged-up offensive line.
Miami Dolphins DE Mario Williams (concussion-questionable) was upgraded to full practice. DT Jordan Phillips (ankle-questionable) was also upgrade to full from limited. They expect both to play Sunday in New England. FANTASY SPIN: This is a strong matchup for the Patriots’ running game.
Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee-out) didn’t practice for a third day and won’t play vs. Green Bay. FANTASY SPIN: This is one less interior pass rusher to get to QB Aaron Rodgers, and also a good boost to Packers RB Eddie Lacy.
New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder-questionable) didn’t practice again. They still think he’ll play on Sunday. DE Olivier Vernon (wrist) was limited but is fine to play. FANTASY SPIN: If Pierre-Paul can’t go, it would be a further help to red-hot Saints QB Drew Brees in a potential shootout.
San Diego Chargers DE Joey Bosa (hamstring-out) didn’t practice again and won’t play. FANTASY SPIN: This is a further boost for both Jaguars QB Blake Bortles and RB T.J. Yeldon in a good matchup.
San Francisco 49ers DE Arik Armstead (shoulder/knee) and DT Glenn Dorsey (knee) were upgraded to full in advance of Carolina and will play. FANTASY SPIN: It’s still a strong matchup for the Panthers’ run blocking and running game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE Robert Ayers (ankle-questionable) was limited for a second day. They are hopeful he goes in Arizona to help their pass rush. FANTASY SPIN: This is still a strong matchup for the Cardinals’ explosive passing game either way.
Atlanta Falcons OLB De’Vondre Campbell (ankle-out) was downgraded to no practice and will not play in Oakland. FANTASY SPIN: Raiders QB Derek Carr has little pass rush to worry about and it’s also a good spot for TE Clive Walford.
Baltimore Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil (foot-out) didn’t practice again and will also miss Cleveland. ILB C.J. Mosley (thigh-questionable) went full for a second day and should play. FANTASY SPIN: This shapes up as a better matchup for Browns RB Duke Johnson Jr. over RB Isaiah Crowell.
Detroit Lions ILB DeAndre Levy (quadriceps-doubtful) didn’t practice for a third day and is on track to miss Sunday. FANTASY SPIN: This is a good break for Titans RBs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, and also creates a nice added bump for TE Delanie Walker.
Houston Texans ILB Brian Cushing (knee-out) isn’t practicing and will miss Kansas City and beyond. FANTASY SPIN: This helps Chiefs RB Spencer Ware most in what’s still a tricky matchup.
Indianapolis Colts OLB Trent Cole (back-doubtful) missed practice again and is unlikely to play in Denver. OLB Robert Mathis (foot-questionable) was limited again and should play. FANTASY SPIN: This is a comfortable spot for Broncos QB Trevor Siemian to get the ball downfield to his wideouts.
New England Patriots ILB Dont’a Hightower (knee-doubtful) missed practice again and is not expected to play vs. Miami. FANTASY SPIN: Without the rangy tackler in there, it helps the Dolphins’ running game a little, namely Arian Foster.
New Orleans Saints OLB Dannell Ellerbe (quadriceps-out) didn’t practice again and won’t play. FANTASY SPIN: This is an extra nice boost for Giants RBs Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen.
Pittsburgh Steelers ILB Ryan Shazier (knee-questionable) was upgraded to full. They are hopeful now he can go vs. Cincinnati. FANTASY SPIN: It would help Bengals RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill most if he can’t and also lower the playmaking quotient for the Steelers’ defense.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers OLB Lavonte David (shoulder-questionable) went full and should be fine for Arizona. FANTASY SPIN: His presence won’t keep one from expecting big things from Cardinals RB David Johnson.
Tennessee Titans OLB Derrick Morgan (hamstring-out) didn’t practice again in advance of Detroit and won’t play. FANTASY SPIN: His absence in the pass rush is a nice extra boon for red-hot Lions QB Matthew Stafford.
Atlanta Falcons S Keanu Neal (knee-out) isn’t practicing and won’t play for a while. FANTASY SPIN: This is a great matchup for Raiders RB Latavius Murray in Oakland.
Chicago Bears CB Kyle Fuller (knee) was limited for a second day. FANTASY SPIN: There are hoping he can return to play on Monday, or it would be good way to keep Eagles WR Jordan Matthews red-hot.
Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam Jones (back) went full for a second day and will play in Pittsburgh. FANTASY SPIN: It’s still a fairly good matchup for the Steelers’ talented wideouts.
Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion-doubtful) didn’t practice for a third day and isn’t expected to play. FANTASY SPIN: His absence helps Vikings WR Stefon Diggs in an otherwise tough matchup against a deep secondary.
Indianapolis Colts CBs Vontae Davis (ankle-out) and Patrick Robinson (concussion0out) didn’t practice again in advance of Denver and wont play. CBs Darius Butler (ankle-questionable) and Antonio Cromartie (hamstring-questionable) were upgraded to full from limited. FANTASY SPIN: This is terrific news for Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders playing such a banged-up secondary.
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring-out) didn’t practice again in advance of San Diego and won’t play. CB Jalen Ramsey (ankle) went full for a third day and will play. FANTASY SPIN: It’s not the easiest matchup for the Chargers’ post-Keenan Allen wideouts.
Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes (knee-out) didn’t practice again and won’t play. FANTASY SPIN: His continued absence is an added boon for Packers WRs Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
New England Patriots CB Malcolm Butler (ankle-questionable) was limited again but is expected to play against Miami. FANTASY SPIN: It’s still a pretty good situation for Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry.
New Orleans Saints CB Delvin Breaux (ankle-out) isn’t practicing and won’t play for a while. FANTASY SPIN: It’s a terrific matchup for Giants WRs Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.
Philadelphia Eagles CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) hasn’t been able to practice and may miss Chicago. FANTASY SPIN: It’s building into a very favorable matchup for Bears WR Alshon Jeffery all over the field.
San Diego Chargers CB Jason Verrett (calf) was upgraded to full and will go against the Jaguars. FANTASY SPIN: Jaguars WR Allen Robinson is talented enough to have a strong day even with worrying about Verrett in coverage.
