McCarthy: WR Jarrett Boykin in worse shape than first thought
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:11 pm ET) Mike McCarthy has conceded that the knee and groin injuries plaguing Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin are "a little worse than we thought" and that he is definitely out for the Thursday night game against Minnesota, per ESPN.

McCarthy is even concerned that Boykin will miss the Week 6 clash against Miami.

Boykin, who snagged 49 passes for 681 yards a year ago, has just two catches for 17 yards in two games this season.


Report: Colts rule out starting guard Jack Mewhort
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:11 pm ET) The Colts ruled out rookie left guard Jack Mewhort (ankle) for Sunday's game against the Ravens, reports the Indianapolis Star. The second-round pick started the first four games.

Indy will shift Lance Louis from right guard to left guard, with Hugh Thornton returning from an ankle injury to play right guard, the paper said.


Lions represent tough test for Sammy Watkins
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:03 pm ET) The Lions have been able to clamp down on opposing passing games so far, which does not bode well for Bills receiver Sammy Watkins' chances of thriving with new quarterback Kyle Orton in Week 5.

The Lions have allowed just two wide receivers to rack up double-digit Fantasy points through four games, and have held big names like Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Victor Cruz and Kelvin Benjamin to five points or fewer in their matchups. In fact, Eric Decker is the only No. 1 receiver to find the end zone against the Lions, who have done a good job locking them up otherwise.

We are hoping the switch from EJ Manuel to Orton at quarterback opens up the Bills passing game, but we might not see the results of that right away. Watkins' upside got higher with this move, but Week 5 represents a tough enough matchup that he should be considered a risky starting option in most Fantasy formats.  


Cowboys LB Bruce Carter 'probably down' against Texans
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:01 pm ET) Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter appears doomed to inactivity for the Week 5 clash against Houston. He was sidelined from practice Wednesday with a quad strain and is expected to be out for up to two weeks.

"Yeah, I'll probably be down," he conceded to the Dallas Morning News. "I rehab all day pretty much. Ice and elevation and compression and pretty mjuch the same cycle over and over. Get some of this swelling out."

Carter sustained the injury in the Sunday defeat of New Orleans.


No reason to stray from Nick Foles
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:58 pm ET) So Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had a clunker Week 4 at San Francisco. It happens to the best of them. At least in his case, it came against one of the league's most imposing defenses -- one that has allowed the fifth-lowest passer rating of any team this season.

It shouldn't overshadow the fact that he was the only quarterback to throw for 300 yards in each of his first three games and is still one of only two (Andrew Luck being the other) with three 300-yard games this season. The Eagles are built to throw the ball, and throw the ball they shall.

In theory, they don't have the best matchup for throwing the ball Week 5 against the Rams, who rank third against the pass, allowing 187.3 yards per game, but the Rams have also allowed the fourth-highest passer rating of any team this year. The Cowboys' Tony Romo threw for 217 yards and two touchdowns against them when they last played in Week 3.

I'm thinking the design of the Eagles offense will make Foles an advisable Fantasy option this week despite teams' tendencies against the Rams so far this season. Jamey Eisenberg ranks him only 15th among quarterbacks, but I'd start Foles over Ben Roethlisberger, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, Tony Romo and Cam Newton.


Report: Kyle Williams misses practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:53 pm ET) Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams did not practice Wednesday as Buffalo prepared for its Week 5 visit to Detroit, reports ESPN.com. Williams left Sunday's loss to the Texans with a knee injury. He has 11 tackles, a sack and an interception this season.

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy: 'I'm just not getting it done'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:51 pm ET) Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy is at a loss to explain his recent struggles.

"I'm just not getting it done. I don't know what to tell you," he said to CSNPhilly.com.

McCoy performed well enough in the first two games, but has proven ineffective since. He has just 39 yards in 29 carries for a 1.3 YPC average over the past two games. He has also not caught a pass after snagging 10 in the first two games combined.


Chuck Pagano pegs Sergio Brown as new starter
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:48 pm ET) Colts coach Chuck Pagano told ESPN.com that safety Sergio Brown will start Sunday in place of LaRon Landry, who was suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Brown mainly has played on special teams. He has one tackle in three games played.

Falcons WR Harry Douglas still a no-go Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:45 pm ET) Mike Smith has stated that he anticipates Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas will return to practice this week - but it didn't happen Wednesday.

Douglas remains sidelined with a foot injury that prevented him from playing in Week 4. He has snagged 12 passes for 121 yards and one touchdown in three games, though much of that production was achieved in the season opener.


CB coach warning Packers about Vikings WR Greg Jennings
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:40 pm ET) Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt has sent a word of warning to his players through the media - Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings has returned to form.

"Greg is back, OK?" Whitt said via NFL.com. "I don't know if he was hurt or what happened last year. He looks like the old Greg Jennings. He's fast, he's quick, he's elusive, he's really creative in his route-running. He's fun to watch run routes. The quarterback can get him the ball. So we really have a challenge."

The ex-Packer has not stuffed the stat sheet - he is on the same statistical pace as he was in 2013. But he has come on recently with eight catches for 142 yards over the last two games combined. He has not scored, however, since Week 1.
