Injury Hamstring injury

WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is OUT vs. Texans. Brandon Staley said plan is for Donald Parham to sit this weekend and return next week vs. Browns. Wants to make sure Parham is in proper football shape. Today was Parham’s first day back practicing fully. (Daniel Popper on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This will be the third game Allen has missed after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 1. Mike Williams, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the top three wideouts for Justin Herbert (ribs) against the Texans. Allen left practice early Thursday and didn’t practice Friday which isn’t a great sign for his availability in Week 5.

Injury Ankle injury

Bears ruled out David Montgomery (ankle), and Khalil Herbert to start for Chicago coming off big game against Texans. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Montgomery missed practice all week and has now been ruled out, meaning we’ll get Herbert in a starting role against the Giants. He should see the bulk of carries after his 20-157-2, 2-12-0 line last week against Houston making him an easy RB2 with RB1 upside in all leagues.

Injury Shoulder injury

O’Connell said he feels good about where Dalvin Cook is at. Cook is not listed on the #Vikings’ final injury report, indicating he’ll be ready to go on Sunday. (Ben Goessling on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Cook has a long history of shoulder issues, dislocating it multiple times throughout his career. He’s expected to wear a brace and play against the Saints in London. Whether or not he gets his typical workload remains to be seen but it should be taken as a positive that he is off the injury report.
