Perriman's status for Sunday's game against the Vikings looks cloudy at this stage, but a return to practice, in some capacity Friday, could offer a degree of hope with regard to the wideout's Week 7 playing status.
Diggs, who missed a fourth consecutive practice Wednesday, is hopeful he'll be able to increase his activity level Thursday. That said, he admitted his groin continues to bother him, so he may be referring to testing out the injury with the training staff on a side field rather than practice itself. In the end, Diggs' workload will be known upon the release of Thursday's injury report.
The team still holds out some hope that Parker will rebound in time for the contest, but at the moment that outcome doesn't seem especially likely. If Parker remains out Sunday, Leonte Carroo would figure to continue to see added snaps in the team's passing offense working behind fellow wideouts Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry.
The Jets will issue an official update on the extent of Anderson's involvement Thursday once the practice concludes, but it appears the wideout will be listed as either a limited or nonparticipant. The lack of full practice session this week clouds Anderson's status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, but if healthy, he'll likely assume a prominent role in the team's passing attack. Anderson saw a season-high 12 targets in the Week 6 loss to the Patriots, finishing with four catches for 76 yards.
Though he'll miss his fifth straight game Sunday, Davis said Wednesday that he's "real close" to returning to action, and the Titans' Week 8 bye is expected to provide him with enough time to get his hamstring 100 percent healthy. His availability for the game against Baltimore will ultimately be dictated by his participation in practice leading up to that contest, but with things seemingly trending in the right direction on the health front, Davis could make for an attractive stash in fantasy leagues if a frustrated owner sent him to the waiver wire. Upon returning to action, Davis should step back into a starting role after impressing with six catches for 69 yards in Week 1, his only full NFL game to date.
With two absences from practice in a row to begin Week 7 preparations, at this stage, Lee isn't looking like a safe bet to suit up Sunday against the Colts. Lee will need to get back on the practice field in some capacity Friday to assuage concern about his availability for the weekend, but in the event he's held out, Allen Hurns would rank as the Jaguars' clear top target in the passing game.
It's possible that Benjamin, who tweaked his left knee during the Panthers' first practice of the week Wednesday, will get back on the field for the team's closed session, but he'll likely go down as either a limited or nonparticipant Thursday. On a positive note, Rapoport notes that it's believed Benjamin is just dealing with soreness in the left knee, which he previously tore in training camp in 2015 before requiring surgery and missing that entire season. Even though Benjamin's injury doesn't appear to be serious, his status for Sunday's game against the Bears is still foggy at best.
Whalen failed to make the Ravens' 53-man roster out of training camp, but with the injury bug hitting Baltimore's receiving corps -- Mike Wallace (back), Jeremy Maclin (concussion) and Breshad Perriman (concussion) all were held out of Wednesday's practice -- there's an obvious need for depth at the position. Even if all three of those players sit out Sunday's game against the Vikings, however, Whalen won't offer much fantasy intrigue in a Ravens offense that has struggled to generate production through the air even in times of better health.
Scott has stated that he feels like he is ready to play, but head coach Adam Gase will make the final call. Whether Scott plays Sunday versus the Jets could come down to the status of DeVante Parker who likely will be a game-time decision with an ankle injury.
Brown missed Weeks 2 and 3 with a quadriceps injury and has been listed on the injury report ever since. The Cardinals have finally deemed him fully healthy, after watching him play at least 47 snaps in each of the past three games. Brown comfortably outsnapped Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson the past two weeks, thus re-establishing himself as the clear No. 2 receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald. The role is a bit less attractive than it would've been a few weeks ago, as the early returns suggest Adrian Peterson's presence could allow for a balanced offensive approach. Carson Palmer attempted just 22 passes in Sunday's 36-33 win over the Buccaneers, after averaging 45.4 through the first five weeks of the season. Week 7 brings a road matchup against a Rams defense that ranks 13th against the pass (210.7 yards) and 29th against the run (139.5 yards).
