Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. He only participated in individual drills, though, and wasn't running full speed, per insider John Keim. Jackson's Week 5 status remains unclear.

Williams in cocussion protocol
Rex Ryan says Boobie Dixon is the No. 1 RB if McCoy/Williams cannot play but adds "hopefully we'll have one of those guys (vs Titans)." (Tyler Dunne on Twitter)
FF Today's Take: Karlos Williams along with Sammy Watkins (calf) and LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. There's still hope that Williams will be cleared before Sunday but if he isn't, Anthony Dixon would get the start and be on the RB2 radar against the Titans.

Lions TE Eric Ebron told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he could miss "up to 3 weeks" with the knee injury he suffered in Monday night's loss to the Seahawks. He's dealing with a bruised knee and doesn't need surgery. We'll keep tabs on his progress, but Ebron owners should obviously be looking for a multi-week replacement.

The Vikings on Tuesday traded MLB Gerald Hodges to the 49ers. That likely turns him into a backup in San Francisco. More importantly, it finally clears the way for rookie MLB Eric Kendricks to start in the middle in Minnesota. The Vikings have seemed to be trending that way in recent weeks, and Kendricks began taking passing-down duty from Hodges back in the preseason. Kendricks tallied 9 solo tackles in the Week 3 win over San Diego and added 4 solos plus a sack at Denver last Sunday. He carries LB1 upside the rest of the way, and has already shot up or Rest of the Way IDP rankings.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is practicing in full this week and will return for Thursday night's game against the Texans. He split snaps with TE Coby Fleener in Week 1 and out-targeted his teammate 6 to 1. Allen's return makes both Colts TE shaky fantasy starters.

Colts RB Frank Gore returned to a full practice on Tuesday. It confirms that Monday was just a rest day for the veteran. Gore will be ready for his usual workload against the Texans on Thursday night. He'd benefit from the return of QB Andrew Luck.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano remained non-committal on Tuesday when asked about QB Andrew Luck's status for Thursday night's game against the Texans. Luck, officially listed as limited, took "most of the snaps" in practice. Pagano added that his QB is "trending in the right direction" but that the team needs to "do the smart thing." Luck is again shaping up as a game-time decision.

An MRI on Lions TE Eric Ebron's knee revealed no structural damage, according to insider Adam Caplan. Ebron avoided a significant injury, but his Week 5 status remains uncertain. We'll update his status throughout the week. Tim Wright will serve as Detroit's pass-catching TE if Ebron can't play against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll revealed in a Tuesday radio segment that RB Fred Jackson suffered a high-ankle sprain in Monday night's win over the Lions. That'll likely cost the veteran at least 4 weeks. Jackson totaled just 8 carries and 7 catches in Seattle's first 4 games. The Seahawks are hoping to get RB Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) back for Week 5.

Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested last week for failing to pay a speeding ticket. He was pulled over for speeding when the officer discovered the unpaid ticket. It's obviously a minor offense, and HC Ken Whisenhunt confirmed that Green-Beckham won't face team discipline. He's very unlikely to face any type of punishment from the league, either. But it's a note to file away for a guy who had lots of off-field problems in college.

The Bucs have signed K Connor Barth. He was released at final cuts in favor of Kyle Brindza, who proceeded to miss 6 FGs and 2 XPs in 4 games. Barth connected on 84.3% of his FGs with Tampa Bay from 2009 to 2012. He went 15 of 16 with the Broncos last year. He's a more stable option for the Bucs, but you should be able to do better for your fantasy squad.

Raiders DB T.J. Carrie left Sunday's loss to the Bears with a chest injury that might cost him further game time. HC Jack Del Rio said Monday that he wasn't yet sure of Carrie's outlook, so we'll have to keep an eye on the practice reports this week. Carrie recently moved to safety to take over for Nate Allen, who's on IR/designated to return with a knee injury. He can't play again until at least Week 10.

The Jets watched starting defenders S Calvin Pryor (bruised knee), LB David Harris (quad) and DE Leonard Williams (ankle sprain) leave Sunday's win over Miami with injuries. According to ESPN New York, HC Todd Bowles said Monday that it's too early to know what their statuses will be after the Week 5 bye. We'll check back in on all 3 after the time off. At least none sounds like a longer-term issue. If Williams misses any time, that could allow DE Sheldon Richardson to step back into the lineup, now that his 4-game suspension is done.

Lions TE backed up by journeyman Tim Wright
Eric Ebron exited Monday night's Week 4 game against the Seahawks with a left knee injury. He was replaced in most sets by veteran TE Tim Wright. (Rotoworld)
FF Today's Take: TE Brandon Pettigrew missed Week 4 with a hamstring injury. Ebron was hurt while blocking when C Travis Swanson tumbled into the side of Ebron's leg. Luckily, Ebron pulled his leg out while Swanson was falling on it, but it had the looks of a bad sprain. Before exiting midway through the second quarter, Ebron caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards. This comes as a big blow to an offense looking for consistent targets aside from Calvin Johnson. Wright isn't worth a waiver wire pick.

Giants OLB Devon Kennard left Sunday's win at Buffalo with a hamstring injury. We'll keep an eye on his status through the practice week heading into a positive matchup Sunday night with the Niners. Kennard has showed coverage ability this year after emerging as a pass-rush threat in 2014. He's looking like an enticing IDP prospect for 2015 and beyond.

Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's loss at Indy. That will almost certainly knock him out for Week 5 and often proves to be a multiple-week injury. Unfortunately for the Jags, they also have 2 more games before a Week 8 bye. We'll see if the team tackle leader can make it back before then. Look for OLB Telvin Smith to absorb more tackles while Poz is out. That only makes him look better for an already terrific matchup with Tampa Bay in Week 5. Thurston Armbrister sits behind Poz at MLB on the depth chart.

Beast Mode had "best day" Monday -- but was inactive
The Seahawks played Monday night's game against the Detroit Lions without running back Marshawn Lynch, just the second time he's missed a game since coming to Seattle in 2010. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he could return versus Cincinnati. He was replaced on Monday night by Thomas Rawls and veteran Fred Jackson. (Seahawks.com)
FF Today's Take: Lynch had been listed as questionable on Saturday's injury report with a hamstring injury, then was downgraded to out a day later. "He wasn't quite right," Carroll said. "His best day was today. He ran pretty well in pregame, but they did not think he could sustain through the game and come out healthy again the next week. So we're hoping that by using patience here, that he'll be ready to go this next week."

Bills RB is questionable for Week 5
Karlos Williams sustained a concussion during the Week 4 game against the Giants, but was not diagnosed until Monday night. (Twitter)
FF Today's Take: It's possible to pass through the protocol in less than a week, but Williams should be considered questionable for Week 5. With LeSean McCoy (hamstring) out at least another couple weeks, the Bills would turn to Boobie Dixon, Cierre Wood and likely another live body if Williams can't go. It's also not outside the realm of possibility that the Bills put some running plays in for Percy Harvin.
