Jacksonville Jaguars' Marqise Lee Misses practice Thursday
Marqise Lee (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.
After sitting out Week 4's contest, Lee looks iffy, at best, for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Jacksonville Jaguars' Allen Hurns Returns to practice
Allen Hurns (ankle/thigh) returned to practice Thursday.
It remains to be seen if the Jacksonville Jaguars list Hurns as a limited or full participant, but the wideout's presence at practice, in any capacity Thursday, bodes well for his chances of playing Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Washington Redskins' Jordan Reed Not yet practicing
Jordan Reed (concussion/knee/ankle) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
Reed's history with concussions has reared its ugly head yet again, and fortunately the protocol for head injuries exists to make sure he's without symptoms before returning to the field. If he's unable to play Sunday in Atlanta, Washington would turn to Derek Carrier as the No. 1 tight end.
Buffalo Bills' LeSean McCoy Misses practice Thursday
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
Karlos Williams (concussion) was also absent from Thursday's practice, with both players remaining pretty iffy for Week 5. If neither McCoy or Williams can play, Anthony Dixon would be in line to start at running back for the Buffalo Bills in Sunday's game against the Titans.
Buffalo Bills' Karlos Williams Misses practice again
Karlos Williams (concussion) did not practice Thursday.
The same applies to fellow RB LeSean McCoy, with Anthony Dixon continuing to work as the Buffalo Bills ' lead back in the duo's absence. More on Williams' Week 5 status no later than Friday's injury report, but at this stage both he and McCoy are looking pretty iffy for Sunday's contest against the Titans.
Buffalo Bills' Sammy Watkins Takes part in individual drills
Sammy Watkins (calf) was spotted taking part in individual drills during Thursday's practice, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
Watkins figures to be listed as a limited practice participant by the Buffalo Bills , but his presence on the field Thursday, in any capacity, is nonetheless a step in the right direction in advance of Sunday's game against the Titans.
Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger Making progress
Ben Roethlisberger relayed that team doctors are pleased with his progress, as the QB bounces back from an MCL sprain, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.
While Fowler speculates that Week 8's game against the Bengals "seems like a prime return" for the QB, for his part, Roethlisberger (who has "graduated to stationary bike work") has not put forth a timetable on that front, noting "we're just going to keep taking it week-by-week and try and get back as soon as I can." In the meantime, Mike Vick will continue to start in Roethlisberger's place for the 2-2 Pittsburgh Steelers .
Indianapolis Colts' Matt Hasselbeck Appears on track to start Thursday
Though Andrew Luck (shoulder) is slated to throw pre-game, Matt Hasselbeck (illness) is expected to start Thursday's contest against the Texans, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Hasselbeck remains under the weather after dealing with a virus, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, but it appears as though the Indianapolis Colts are inclined to play it safe with Luck in Week 5, with an eye toward having him ready for the team's Oct. 18 game against the Patriots. Confirmation, either way, however, of Hasselbeck's anticipated Thursday assignment, may not arrive until closer the Colts' 8:25 ET kickoff Thursday.
Report: Colts QB Andrew Luck not expected to start Thursday vs. Texans
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport indicates that while Andrew Luck (shoulder) is slated to throw pre-game, Matt Hasselbeck (illness) is expected to start at QB for the Indianapolis Colts in Thursday night's game against the Texans.
According to Rapoport, Hasselbeck "flew to Houston planning to start," a notion echoed by ESPN's Adam Schefter, who relays via a source that Hasselbeck (who is still feeling under the weather) is on track to start the contest. We'll continue to monitor the situation as Thursday's kickoff approaches, but it appears as though the Colts are inclined to play it safe with Luck in Week 5, presumably with an eye toward having him available for the team's Oct. 18 contest against the Patriots.
Buffalo Bills' Kyle Williams Misses Wednesday's practice
Kyle Williams missed Wednesday's practice due to a calf injury.
Williams also seems to be having a tough time in Rex Ryan's new defense, as he's picked up just nine tackles and no sacks so far after logging 41 and 5.5 in 2014. He seems to be lined up out too wide for his liking at times, and until he gets a better handle on the new style of play, isn't worth owning in IDP formats.
