InjuryUnlikely to return from PUP in Week 7

Nerdy Football Analysis: Recent reports had Foreman returning to action as soon as he was eligible to come off the PUP list this week, but the Texans may wait a few more weeks to do so. Teams have 21 days to activate a player off PUP to the active roster once he begins practicing, and Houston needs what he has to offer, so he’ll almost certainly be back when sooner than later. He should be stashed in most leagues, as he stands a great shot at becoming the starter before the end of the season.

InjuryHamstring injuries

Nerdy Football Analysis: It means the spellchecker’s favorite trio of Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown and J’Mon Moore could see plenty of run in a favorable matchup. Davante Adams figures to see at least 10 targets and Jimmy Graham should be busy as well, although this game could be a great opportunity for Green Bay to get its ground game working in an effort to give Aaron Rodgers an opportunity to avoid another setback with his knee.

InjuryMatt Bryant also expected to miss game as well

HC Dan Quinn said Matt Bryant strained his hamstring, he’ll likely be out this week as will Devonta Freeman with a groin injury. (Kelsey Conway on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Falcons are likely looking ahead to their Week 8 bye to give their top running back some more recovery time, but the fact they’re already considering him unlikely for Week 7 isn’t the greatest of news. Tevin Coleman has been decent as a lead back during Freeman’s absences, but he’s not making a great case to get paid as a free agent in the offseason. Consider Coleman a low-end RB2 in Week 7 and Ito Smith a serviceable flex.
